  1. We were on the Bliss in November and the wi fi was amazing. We are going to be on the Royal in a month so we can compare.
  2. You need to go to Deck 6 The Social midship. We did the November 3 sailing and got on very early and they were all sold out. They handle all the reservations here. Laser tag and the go karts to the left, show reservations right when you come in the door, when we were onboard we went to Teppanyaki to reserve and change our dining reservations which is directly across from The Social. Don’t miss Prohibition it was the best show and well worth the charge. We found the comedy shows quite good too. As soon as we got onboard we hurried to the Social and glad we did because by the time we had finished the lineup was quite long.
  3. We were on the Bliss for two weeks doing the Panama Canal. The service was great. I think the people who say the service is horrible have either never worked in the service industry or should be cruising on Crystal.
  4. We did the November Panama Canal cruise and ate in the Local and the specialty dining. I had prime rib in CAGNEY’S and have to say the prime rib which we had twice in the Local was far better. We did the local for breakfast a few times until we found the Observation Lounge. We usually skipped lunch but if we had lunch we always went to the Local.
  5. My daughter is on the Bliss now and sent me a picture of them on the lounges. I did notice that they had what looked to be towels at the foot of the lounge chairs.
  6. We have sailed on NCL, Princess, Holland, Carnival and Royal Caribbean and found that each cruise line will have something different that we like. A couple of years ago we cruised on Holland and the food was to die for the next year, same ship, same itinerary the food wasn’t so good. We enjoy Princess and have had great times on them as well. If you could take a few good points away from each cruise line you would have a great cruise. They all have something that makes them unique. For sure you will find the passengers on Holland older and I am almost 60. We enjoy NCL and tend to go to the Specialty dining which compared to the other lines doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Sure people can go on a cruise and find something that wasn’t quite right, but at the end of the day I am not cooking or making the bed!
  7. Looking forward to your review! My daughter and bf are on the same cruise as you. Both my husband and I are on the November 3 Panama Cruise. If you are looking for a nice place for Happy Hour or dinner tomorrow check out the Lift. It is a short walk along the sea walk from Canada Place to the Bayshore Inn.
  8. I totally agree, we always take advantage of the half price pressing on the first day. You can’t beat spending $2.00 a shirt and enjoying the cruise.
  9. By this time next year all the Oceania ships will have been through dry dock and will be losing those plastic shower curtains. They will be replacing them with glass doors. Another thing to remember is the average age on Oceania is 65.
  10. 30 plus cruises and have never gotten sick after or while on a cruise. I always make sure I wash my hands constantly and don’t touch the door handles with my bare hands. When we get onboard I take my sanitizing wipes to door handles, remote, phone, light switches etc. I guess it has saved us from getting sick.

  12. They don’t, unless they are sitting on the railing.
  13. The price went up a while ago. I believe it changed just after the transatlantic cruise might have changed on the Panama cruise but it was well before the start of the Alaska cruises.
  14. We usually cruise in October/November and May when school is back in session. At these times there are no more than a handful of children onboard. Also we try and cruise for at least 10 or more days which tends to have an older crowd onboard, 50+.
