  1. Adding to what Bob said, most mixed drinks on the rocks are around $13-$16. Glasses of wine usually run $13+
  2. Y'all...This works. I went and put four blue towels on some theatre seats I'll be needing in April, no one's been able to sit there since and I've got a great spot for my concert! Make sure you're using the right shade of aqua, though. I tried teal last week and boy howdy, they were gone in less than an hour. The blue towels really are magic!
  3. I had a 28" and a 26" hardbody when we sailed, we left them open and both fit under the queen bed with no issues (open). We used them as under-bed drawers for our dirty laundry πŸ˜‚
  4. Quoted so I can try to stay in order. We just got back from a CocoCay sailing in a balcony cabin last week, So I can hit most if not all of these πŸ™‚ 1. We got to our departure port late because of a bad accident on the only bridge in and out of Port Canaveral. We were about an hour *after* our scheduled check-in and still had no problems. We got there around 12:30-1ish and the security line took maaaaaaaybe twenty minutes and we have no kind of loyalty status. RCI doesn't really enforce their boarding "appointments" anyway, they're just trying to do a little crowd control by making people think they have to come at different times. 2. Skip, I sailed out of PC (sorry, no help there!) 3. I believe you can still request one; whether or not you have to buy it and keep it is another story. 4. Sometimes but it's hit and miss. I'd say for certain if you want one or you're concerned about the bed firmness, plan to bring your own and pack it in its own suitcase. 5. Just had a balcony cabin, can confirm: nope. JS and above get coffee makers but there are tons of venues around the ship to get coffee in the morning. And room service is very prompt but there is a charge associated. (Last checked...$7.95 per order. Not per item ordered but per room order.) 6. If you mean disembarking in a port of call, one or two bars will still be open but most will be closed. (Usually pool bar stays open to serve guests who stay on the ship.) On the final day when you get off for good? All are closed because of the myriad of things going on: supplies being loaded and unloaded, guests leaving and coming on, trash being offloaded, crew coming aboard and leaving. They try to keep it as simple as possible and all but the buffet and a few other key areas (think guest services) will be closed. 7. It's been a looooooooong time since I've been to Labadee, but on CocoCay the loungers, umbrellas, the buffet, pool access, beach access, beach wheelchairs, and a few attractions (think splash zones for the little ones) are free. Snorkel rental, cabanas, beach beds, the waterpark, the helium balloon, and the zip lines all carry a charge, as well as some food options. 8. I would not advise shorts in the MDR, but they won't stop you. Saw plenty of people heading in there in shorts on our sailing. If you can convince him to wear jeans (which undoubtedly someone is still going to call a faux pas, I call it a compromise) and a polo or collared shirt that might be looked upon more favorably, but they really don't enforce their dress code...anywhere onboard. Hope that helps πŸ™‚
  5. Now I'm going to be singing this for the rest of the day. How lucky can one girl get, a @John&LaLa sail-along on the President's Cruise and a @twangster Panama sail-along? Y'all spoil us. ❀️
  6. @catwolfhorse Captain Aries Molina (sp?) Is currently aboard Mariner OTS.
  7. As a laser tag-crazy twenty-something with bad knees (ballet injuries) you should be able to give it the ol' college try. If nothing else you can hide behind a pylon and zap unsuspecting twelve-year-olds and they rush by.
  8. I'm on the Mariner 10/28 sailing, if no one has posted the captain by then I'll report back.
  9. When Dorian "hit" southeast Georgia it took twice as long to get my planters inside because my cat insisted on inspecting each one as it was carried in to the house. πŸ˜‚
  10. I feel your pain; luckily we get back the day before the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party (UGA-UF rivalry game). I'd try finding out if you'd be able to stream the game to your phone or a laptop. Unlucky you're going to be on Explorer pre-Amp because they're adding Playmakers. (May 2020.)
  11. I've read about OVBs getting bids accepted on GS and above in this thread, and JS getting bids accepted into Sky class. Can't really chalk it up to one definitive factor beyond RCI is just gonna do whatever they want.
  12. Try through RCI's US site, royalcaribbean.com. Unless you're looking for discount sites of course. I booked ours direct through RCI's site and haven't had any trouble, but your mileage may vary.
  13. Oh my gosh thanks so much for these!! We have a Chill Island cabana for our sailing coming up October 28 and I couldn't find any good photos to show my husband!
  14. Right now the only place that charges for entry is Thrill Waterpark. The beaches and pool are free to enter.
