  1. This form will also allow you to indicate you have a CPAP (and any other special needs like dairy intolerance, mobility, hearing, etc). They recommend doing it at least 30 days before sailing. https://www.royalcaribbean.com/resources/guest-special-needs
  2. I keep hearing extension cords aren’t allowed. I’d love to hear what kind/how!
  3. My 2¢ on prints - do you have an album you would put them in and look at them? I, personally, prefer digitals and make a photobook from Shutterfly (or similar) and have that printed instead. Takes up less space than a photo album and you can use scrapbooking things like adding text about what you were doing, dates, etc. Also - Shutterfly gives away free photobooks all the time! I like cheap lol.
  4. Yes! Insurance is so important. On our honeymoon in Mexico I got so sick the resort doctor thought it was my appendix. Took me to the hospital, and they demanded money upfront before even looking at me. It wasn’t my appendix (thank goodness, I can’t tell you how happy I was to leave that hospital - long story). The next day my grandma passed away. We ended up leaving 1.5 days early. Insurance reimbursed the hospital visit, the missed time on our vacation, and our changed flights.
  5. Hi! We leave soon on Indy. My husband is a bigger guy (6’1”, 400lbs). He’s worried about fitting in the chairs at the show, dinner, etc. Anyone else have experience with this and willing to share your experience? thanks in advance!
  6. I don’t get why people are so bent out of shape over shorts in the dining room. Do you avoid restaurants at home where people wear shorts also? I’d bet $5 that your local steak restaurant has everyone from dresses and slacks to shorts and tank tops. They’re simply clothes. Be happy they’re not naked. OP - I’m going on Indy next week and I have a few dresses and some casual clothes planned to pack. My husband will probably wear shorts and a button up, maybe slacks and a polo.
  7. Do you or your wife drink at all? If not, you could call and request an exception. They’ll have you get the refreshment package, but will allow only one guest to get the alcohol package with a reason.
  8. We had this happen twice recently. We first booked the Explorer for mid-February and it was chartered. They offered us $50/person in OBC for switching to a March date with the same itinerary. Fast forward a month and the cruise was chartered again. This time we were offered two additional dates, or a different itinerary/ship. We accepted the switch to Indy on 2/22/20 and the additional $50/person OBC. While super frustrating, it worked out for us. Better ship/itinerary, and $400 OBC. Sorry you are going through this too!
  9. Indy has a 13 also, but no staterooms on it. Congrats Soremekun!
  10. That really sucks. I agree with calling the agent directly, and escalating if possible. If they don’t respond, call the Royal Redeployment Department at 888-281-9344.
  11. I haven’t cruised this specific ship, but have noticed a ton of canceled Coco Cay port visits due to weather lately, and no canceled Labadee. Not sure if summer makes a difference though, just my 2¢ on itineraries.
  12. If you have the Internet package, you could use iMessage (or Facebook messenger if android users).
  13. In my experience, they’ve tried to put us back into the exact same room if at all possible. When you or your travel agent contact them, just let them know your intentions with your friends and they should be able to assist, especially if the bookings are linked.
  14. I’m not imagining we’ll have many purchases onboard besides maybe 2-3 drinks a day and maybe $50 in arcade spending. So I’m considering a cash account as I really don’t use credit cards often and have a lower limit. With a cash account, do you prepay or settle up at the end before leaving? Do you literally have to pay cash, or can I pay off the account with my debit card? We prepaid gratuities, so could we realistically cash out the last night onboard and avoid the morning line?
