  1. Great info here! I want to add that the beach in Key West is nothing to write home about. It is a cool area to visit, but not sure it’s worth the added travel time and cost due to the ages of your children. If you can arrange it, I would plan the parks before the cruise. That would give you a chance to “recover” on a deck chair.
  2. This is good information to know. Thank you for sharing. We have a multi-generational holiday cruise booked and two of the children will still be too young for vaccines. They are very good at understanding when masks are required. And none of us mind selecting from the RCCL tours to stay together.
  3. We have Liberty booked over New Year’s. We have not planned excursions, yet, as we had a feeling things might get moved around.
  4. I am a bit slow at jumping in here, and thanking you for taking the time to share your cruise with all of us. Looks amazing!
  5. Our currently booked cruise does not stop at CocoCay. However, the one that was booked & canceled in 2020 did include CocoCay, and we had two cabanas booked for our first visit there. (I can’t remember the cost, but I know it was a sale under $600 each.) There were about 25 family members sailing together, and the cabana rentals were to insure that those over 80 (and a few younger in poor physical condition) had a place to sit in the shade. With a cabana, food & water would be brought to our elderly and the rest of us wouldn’t have to worry about them standing in a buffet line or a
  6. Nope There was an additional line for the gratuities
  7. I looked yesterday and the Cruise Planner had $50 per day, but then when you put it in the cart it was $57 per day. I emailed Royal Caribbean, hoping someone would reply to me, but they still have not. Today, the Cruise Planner has $57 per day listed, but when you try to add it to the cart, you get a giant ERROR message. Here's hoping that there's a $50 or less per day price happening soon that can actually be purchased.
  8. I like this thread. It really makes you think. (Well, let's be honest, the unexpected disruptions of 2020 have made us all think and re-think.) I am, typically, not a buffet eater, but I do hope that the buffets never go back to self-serve. I understand that requires more crew to staff it all, and that it could mean longer lines, but no one on a cruise is going hungry. I hope the cruise lines factor in enough time between disembarking and then embarking to thoroughly clean. I also hope they continue to clean more during the cruise. This is about more than COVID. Th
  9. This sounds a lot like us on a different line, but I imagine we would do the same on RCCL. There is so much more on the Deluxe Beverage Package than alcohol. Not sure why people get so hung up that those that buy it are going to consume 15 alcoholic drinks in a day. They might . . . but it's not required.
  10. I hope the OP doesn't mind me "piggy backing." When I click the "learn more" link regarding the RCCL beverage packages, it tells me that it is for up to $12 drinks. But, recently, I saw the list of the drink menus on the AOS sailing and the specialty drinks were $13. What?!?!? Are the bars really going to be charging me $1 for each drink even if I purchase the Deluxe Beverage Package?
  11. Thanks! We have been to Grand Cayman on two previous cruises, so it won't really hurt my feelings, if we don't go. However, I hope that Royal Caribbean will arrange a replacement port stop and that it doesn't just turn into another Sea Day.
  12. It will be our first time cruising out of Galveston. The bells & whistles on Liberty of the Seas are really for my nephews, otherwise we would have picked a closer port to us - NOLA or Mobile. Cozumel has so many options that we aren't too worried about that one. If a pay as you go beach club (LOVE Paradise Beach) is an option, we will be doing that. If we are required to select a cruise sponsored excursion, we plan on Playa Mia (we have never been there) or Chankaanab (haven't seen it, since they finished all of the after the hurricane rebuilding). For Grand Ca
  13. It’s been many years, but we, thoroughly, enjoyed our day passes at Hilton Rose Hall. Also booked through Resort for a Day. That is my “go to” site, when I don’t want to go directly through the cruise line.
  14. Anyone cruised on New Year’s Eve? The females on our multi-generational group are ready for sparkly formal dresses, but the males are all over - tux, khakis & a jacket, tuxedo t-shirt. The ladies are ready to celebrate that we will be vacationing and welcoming a new year. Most of the guys just want to be comfy.
  15. Anyone have “inside” scoop on Grand Cayman and cruise ships? We are scheduled to port there the last week of December 2021.
