  1. Going to St. Kitts, through RCI. They have 37 excursions to choose from. Any advice? What would you do your first time? We like beaches, short hikes, scenery.
  2. I did that two years ago, it was amazing. No longer see it listed. In fact a lot of excursions are longer listed. Don’t know why. My guess would be the hurricane wiped out the schooner.
  3. We brought a large box fan on Oasis, and never had any issues. They’re only $20, not a huge loss, if they’re confiscated. I’ll take the risk. Can’t sleep without a fan.
  4. They will be walking from the elevator around the corner to a door I believe. The upper level of Dazzles is only a few seats. They shouldn’t be walking past rooms to get there.
  5. Hope deck 9 is noise free. Last time we brought a box fan on Oasis, might do it again for the white noise.
  6. I did a two week honeymoon in Rome. We stayed in a hotel and walked everywhere. There’s an ancient port town called Ostia Antica, it was really interesting. For those not seeing Pompeii, it’s a good option. Might be closer to the cruise port, don’t know for sure. A bus and train service that area. Can’t remember the names of the tour companies we had in the city, all were excellent, it’s a great place to explore.
  7. Is breakfast served on the island if the ship is in port 7-3? Are there healthy options? My wife and I are vegetarian, and from what I read so far, it only mentions burgers and hot dogs for entrees.
  8. I noticed RC changed their excursions on the cruise planner. Use to have reviews from guests. That’s been removed. Less excursions offered as well. Possibly due to the hurricane destroying some of the property used on excursions is my guess.
  9. Booked a ocean view balcony on deck 9. 9306, 12 rooms from very back of ship. Good distance from the elevator. Looks like a low foot traffic area. But a few rooms away is Dazzles. Little concerned with the loud music. The rooms seem well insulated from sound though. Thoughts? Anyone been on deck 9, Harmony of the Seas or similar? We’re not picky, just want a balcony with an ocean view that’s not obstructed by anything, with a good view of the ocean. This will be our 2nd cruise, 1st was Oasis. Would like to try a smaller ship next time to compare.
  10. My wife and I are in our 30's, no kids. After doing a lot of traveling, we decided to take a cruise. Our 1st cruise was in 2017, interior room on Oasis of the Seas w/RC. Had a great time! Fell in love with cruising. Enjoyed the excursions on St Thomas/St maarten, before the hurricane destroyed them. Did not like Nassau. We wanted to cruise again right away. Unfortunately our house flooded twice in 6 months, and other things happened that put vacations on hold. Now life is moving forward again, we booked another cruise. This time, it's Harmony of the Seas, and an ocean view balcony. Cococay, St Thomas, St Kitts. I wanted to try a smaller ship like Rhapsody and considered Carnival Cruise Lines. Charleston is nearby, but that didn't appeal to me for the price. Our first experience was good though, so we stuck with RC. The balcony's are cheaper on larger ships, that's the main reason I choose Harmony. Ended up getting room 9306, back/port side of ship, 12 rooms from the very back, and a good distance from the elevator. I noticed deck 10 and above was an extra charge, so higher decks must be better? We aren't very picky, and all we want is an unobstructed balcony, with a nice view of the ocean. Being mid ship didn't matter to me, because I don't get sea sick. One concern is it's 7 rooms down the hall from Dazzles. On Oasis I remember the room seemed fairly sound proof, but I do remember Dazzles having loud live music. Anyone stay on deck 9 on an Oasis class ship, and were you happy with it? Also, I noticed St Kitts doesn't have many excursions. We're considering staying on the ship that day. Anything fun to do there?
