  1. I am looking for a video of Voyager OTS mini suite #1154 or #1156 after it was refurbished in 2019. We are looking at the cabins for a Baltic Sea cruise. I know that there may not be much out there since the ship was shut down in March 2020 with COVID-19. Thank you in advance if you have anything to share.
  2. We are going to the British Open on 7/10/22-7/17/22 so we are trying to make back-to-back vacations since we are flying across the pond.
  3. My wife and I are trying to decide between multiple European cruises in June/July 2022. The pricing is crazy low on the 7 night Voyager of the Seas from Stockholm with stops in St. Petersburg, Tallinn, Visby, and Helsinki and one day at sea. I know it is an older ship that has been amped up. We are also looking at an 11 night cruise on Enchanted Princess (brand new ship). I know we won't be on the ship very much and the Voyager will be just fine but the Enchanted Princess with the additional ports (Oslo and Berlin) is enticing too. For perspective, pricing per cabin in a large balcony: Voyager (7 nights): $2,399 ($343/night) Enchanted Princess (11 nights): $6,688 ($608/night) Your thoughts are appreciated. Since I am posting this on the RCCL board, I kind of expect where the comments will lean. I wonder if they will be different on the Princess board.
  4. We are also looking at great pricing on the Allure (not amped) vs Harmony. I have been on both ships. We are leaning toward Allure due to pricing.
  5. My wife and I are going to Scotland for the British Open in July 2022 (7/10-7/17). We are trying to add a Baltic cruise before the Scotland trip. The cruises that work in our timeframe are Royal Caribbean's Voyager of the Seas for 7 nights or Enchanted Princess for 11 nights. We primarily sail on Royal Caribbean but have sailed on Princess twice. The Scotland portion of the trip is just my wife and me and 4 other couples. We are considering having our 20 year old join us on the cruise before Scotland and then he would fly home to Florida while we go to Scotland. I am wondering what the ages of those sailing the Baltic will likely be on Princess and if our son may be bored or not. He is not a history buff but enjoys cruises. Thank you in advance for your thoughts.
  6. My wife (62) and I (57) are going to the British Open at St. Andrews in Scotland 7/10/22-7/17/22. We are looking at adding a European cruise to the front or back end of our trip. We have primarily cruised Royal Caribbean (Emerald status) in the past because we always had kids with us and we like the Oasis class of ships. We are looking at the Celebrity Edge on 7/2/22 from Rome and ending in Barcelona. It cruises to Italy, France and Spain. We would then take a flight from Barcelona to Edinburgh where we would meet our traveling partners in Scotland. We are considering a Sky Suite on the Edge because the perks look really good. Changing to Celebrity would be a big change for us but maybe it's time since we are child-less on this cruise! Any thoughts that you can share as we transition from Royal Caribbean to Celebrity are appreciated.
  7. We are looking at the Edge from Barcelona on 7/2/22. We usually cruise on Royal Caribbean and this will be our first time on Celebrity. We plan on getting a Sky Suite. Please send me the link to the Excel document. Thank you.
  8. You need to bring towels from the ship which you can get on deck 1 (or similar for other ships) before you exit the ship. You need to bring the wet towels back to the ship and turn them in or get the $25/towel charge. You can exchange towels on the island though. Since this is RCI's island, why can't they just have the entire towel process occur on the island? It would be easier on the customer.
  9. Overall, I agree with your review based on my assessment from the Mariner on 5/25/19. Food is MUCH better than Labadee. Pool is awesome. Chairs available all day. Umbrellas are plentiful and everywhere. It is not hard to find shade without getting a cabana. 100% different and better than Labadee. Our kids experienced long lines (30-60 minutes) for the slides early AM. That being said, they loved the slides but did not want to wait in line to go on them again.
  10. We loved Jamie Oliver's on Mariner and also on Anthem. We liked it much better than Chop's and Izumi.
  11. A nice colorful brochure type map is placed in your room the night before you arrive in Cococay.
  12. We docked at Cococay on the Mariner this morning around 7am. Navigator was already docked. We went to breakfast in the dining room at 7:30am and off the ship around 8am. After a short walk to the pool area, we were poolside on our pick of chairs by 8:15am. It’s a beautiful “Perfect” day today at Cococay. My wife loves saying that! We were here in early April when the pool was open but not the waterpark. The pool is great. We bought our full day waterpark passes a few weeks ago for $24 per person. We feel lucky. Our 16 and 17 year old boys just went to the waterpark. I first checked in with them by swiping at the entrance to the waterpark. Yes I had to also buy a waterpark pass so I could escort them in and yes it sure feels like total gouging. I plan on using the wavepool but not the slides. The staff said they will be able to get back into the waterpark throughout the day without me. Looking forward to a great day at Cococay.
  13. I will be on Cococay this Saturday on Mariner. I will be sure to report back. We were there in early April and loved the pool. We plan on getting off the ship very early to get good chairs around the pool. A few weeks ago, we purchased water park passes for our teenage boys and us (so we can use the wavepool) for $24 per person.
