  1. My set sail pass will not load on the app. I do have a printed out copy but would have liked to try out the digital version. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  2. We will be on the same cruise!!! I’m so excited to sail on Allure. This will be the biggest ship I’ve sailed! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  3. I send my boyfriend to JR. he picks up food for both of us and brings it back to the cabin and we eat on the balcony. Only one charge that way, plus I get to nap longer [emoji16] Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  4. I’m not a heavy drinker when at home. Working overnights it’s hard to be! But we have purchased the deluxe drink the last two cruises and our upcoming cruise on Allure in a sky class suite. I’m allergic to beer and really enjoy trying different drinks and of course the frozen delights! My boyfriend is a drinker so he’ll get his moneys worth. I just like that everything is paid ahead of time and I don’t have to be thinking about how much are these yummy fruity drinks adding up to on my account! I find I am able to better enjoy my vacation without worrying about the bar tab. But truth be told I usually get a sugar headache around 4 and have dubbed 4-7:30 the daily nap time!!

  5. I always take dresses for dinner. Two jeans and loads of tops for after dinner wear. And two shoes for dinner (black and beige heels) or I’d go overboard! Never re-wear the dresses and always re-wear the jeans! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  6. We saw Grease on a 4 night sailing last year. It was wonderful! We showed up 15 minutes before the show and got great seats! There is an intermission as well, just so you know. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  7. See you onboard! We’re planning on samba the second night. Waiting to hear from our concierge to set up everything! Can’t wait to read your review when we get back! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  8. In the upgrade process I believe they look at location of your original room and how easy it will be to quickly re-sell it. That being said I try to always book a cabin in the middle. I’ve had three upsell offers. 2 on carnival both from balcony’s one aft one middle to ocean suites. Took one refused the second. I’m sailing allure in a few months and had a JS booked with an extended balcony for $2600. Two months ago I received a call to upgrade to a crown loft suite for $900 total. I jumped on it figuring I’d never ever pay full price for that suite. We do have around $1500 in ancillaries purchased already for the cruise so not sure if that had anything to do with it. I’m going to be emerald if it makes any difference. And it was the second time I booked a junior suite. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  9. Seconding 2 & 6. Plus you can check the Royal app and see the menus!! From what I’ve heard they are very accurate. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  10. My opinion on the drink package- we are sailing in a crown loft suite in a few weeks on allure and have purchased the deluxe package. I know we have access to the suite lounge for drinks. Similarly to you have access to the diamond lounge. I’m allergic to beer and love those fruity frozen drinks!! So for me my options are limited in the suite lounge. I love trying new drinks and hate when I try something and hate it!! So imagine having to pay for that mistake a bunch of times!! The beauty of Allure is that there are so many special drinks you can only get in certain bars! And we will be visiting all of them!! So for us the idea of everything being paid for up front, being able to try any drink, and not worrying about the open times and crowds in the suite lounge made it an easy choice. Plus for what we paid I’d only need to drink 4 drinks a day!! I can do that in one session on the pool deck [emoji4] Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  11. I love cruising with the drink package. I’m allergic to beer to all my drinks are $12+ so after 4 or 5 drinks a day I break even. Plus I love trying different drinks without worrying about wasting money on something I don’t like. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  12. If you have the Royal app it will show you the menus of all restaurants! Pretty accurate and vintages is on there under dining! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  13. Independence is one of my favorite ships!!! I sailed on her the last two years. She’s a very stable ship with lots of entertainment! You will enjoy her. Last time was me and my boyfriends first cruise together and it was perfect. Attentive crew, yummy food, great people!! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  14. I love that restaurant! I live here and go there at least twice a month!!!! Their eggs Benedict is amazing too. Plus they make their own bread!! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  15. I think you do need the same address. We live together, so I’ll just make the call and update his status to match mine. My first Royal Cruise was back in 1997, so it’s been 21 years lol! But I was also only 8 at the time!
  16. I don’t see why not. Plus it’s air conditioned. It’s still really hot down here in October.
  17. You can buy 6 resusable straws for $1 at IKEA. Just bought 12 for our upcoming cruise. You know I’m case we forget one here and there.
  18. I should do that for him since he paid for the cruise since it’s a birthday present! The number I got the call from was a 1-866 number. No ID on the phone. I wasn’t going to answer it but I’m sure glad I did.
  19. It’s myself and my boyfriend sailing on the cruise. We originally booked in March and were in 6248, a half on the hump Junior Suite. Two weeks after final payment I saw another JS on the hump open up and switched to 8640. Then a week later I got called for this upgrade. I’m really excited. The rep did make a mistake and said there was a bathtub in the room but there isn’t. I was a little upset, then I saw the huge shower and decided I can live without a tub for a week. After this cruise, I will be emerald and my boyfriend will be platinum. She did offer one of the rear facing CSL first, but I asked if an ocean view was available and she quickly said yes. So we are in 1706!
  20. Hello everyone! Just wanted to shares my happiness. Yesterday I got a call from Royal offering an upgrade to a Criwn Loft Suite for $900 total !! We were originally in a Junior Suite and paid $2600 for it. I jumped in the offer as the original rate was $6400 for these rooms. It will be our first time in a full suite and for my 30th birthday!!!! Oh we’re sailing on Allure in September. So excited! I’ll do a quick search about those rooms but if you have any info can you share it!
  21. It doesn’t work on my Mac so I do everything on my phone [emoji17] Sent from my iPhone using Forums

  23. Absolutely beautiful photos! Dubrovnik is on my bucket list! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  24. imessage worked on the magic last october. Wasn't sure prior to the cruise so I used whatsapp until a friend text me and it came through. Bonus - video chatting works through whatsapp with the social plan really early in the morning like around 3am ;)
  25. I’ve got a tie for favorite- port canaveral because they make everything easy! Boarding and disembarking both a breeze! But I can see port Everglades from my house so... it depends [emoji6] Sent from my iPhone using Forums
