  1. Is there a weight restriction? On a recent NCL cruise, they had a 300lb weight limit. Do they allow GoPro's? Usually I've never had problems using the actin camera's, but on the Breeze back in December they stopped us for some reason and said no. Oh, and what about on the zip lines? Does anyone know if they allow gopro's on the zipline?
  2. Is there a way to know all of the shows that will be on the Symphony for a 3 night May 25 - 28? Our widowed mothers are going with us so I'm trying to do all of the research for stuff they may enjoy before hand so they don't feel overwhelmed. Thanks!!!
  3. Hey everyone. I have sailed Carnival and NCL, but never RCI. This is my first cruise with them and I have been following the Symphony since they announced her plans to be built, so imagine my excitement! We are sailing (for our honeymoon) May 25 - 28 of this year, so a very short sailing. That being said, I'm trying to experience everything there is to experience on her. We have one stop (Nassau) and unless my wife decides she wants to spend all day on land (I've been there many, many times), I'm hoping to just explore the ship. So, I'm looking for every little trick, tip, secret and advice. What all is there to do on there? I read something (rumor maybe?) that they have interactive art and they even have some art that you use your RCI app and hit an x-ray mode or something and it shows you what's on the other side of the wall. Is this stuff true? Little hidden things like that is what I really want to find out about, but even other things like the shows, activities (for instance, is ice skating free, how is the laser tag, etc) and free food venues? On Carnival, the day you sail away from port, many of the specialty dining options are actually free for lunch on that day. Anything like that with the Symphony? Ok, I'm sure I'll have other questions, but PLEASE fill me in!!!!! My buddy has told me since my very first cruise that RCI is the ONLY way to go.... even though he is really starting to like Carnival. I really look forward to the dialogue with all of you in this post. One last thing.... does anyone know where the "coin" is on the ship? For those of you that don't know, all ships have a special coin embedded somewhere on the ship. On cruise ships, it's usually some place the passengers can see it, but usually not obvious. It's fun to go find it.
  4. i was on the NCL Getaway and the Internet on there was 80% of the time crazy fast speeds and the other 20% of the time, not nearly as much. People say the Symphony is much much faster than that. I don't know how accurate any of this info is. just curious. and to the user that said put up the devices..... i understand what you are saying, but we require Internet access for one day due to a project we are working on. It is what it is.
  5. thanks man! is it truly as fast as everyone makes it seem? people say its as fast as good land internet. just doesnt make sense to me
  6. sweet and congrats!!!! find me on instagram or facebook and lets connect! all of my social media is iAmChrisStone
  7. thanks!!! i found his instagram but he has it private lol. only found a personal fb so hopefully he accepts my request in ig.
  8. We would be ok with that lol. On Carnvial, you tell the cruise director before hand, and they usually hook you up. You think RCI would be the same way? Anyone know who the cruise director is on this sailing?
  9. We are taking our honeymoon on the Symphony May 25 - 28 sailing. We are on a budget and went with an interior. Do you guys know if they do anything special for honeymooners or any secrets or things we can ask for? Thanks!
  10. We are sailing on her in May. We want one day of the fastest possible Internet package. I can't find the pricing anywhere. Could anyone explain to me how much it will cost? And this is the new Zoom service that is super high speed, correct? Or is it Xoom? Or Voom? lol sorry
  11. I have been on both. This video is the Sunshine December 2017 and I'm hoping to do a recap of our time on the Breeze December 2018 soon.
  12. I think that the Sunshine has gone through updates from when we sailed until you are about to sail, but here is a nice video of her at Christmas.
  13. idk if this will answer any questions that you have, but this recap video may...
