  1. Wondering if HOS has cabanas around a pool that can be rented for use during a cruise. I have looked on deck plans and website and don't see anything. Thanks for your response.
  2. Thanks Judy, Boy this sign sure says what they have not told us. Was this the Silk Room on deck 5?
  3. If her name is Marlene Preto, we have been in contact with her and no luck.
  4. Does anyone have a diagram of the layout with table numbers and location of the Silk Dinning Room on Deck 5. I am working with a group and we have our table assignments but I want to know exactly where these tables are located. Thanks, Linda
  5. Judy, I have a request if you are able to do it, if not, don't worry about it. I am the coordinator of a group, 27 seniors, and we are having a terrible time getting our dinner reservations. The Silk Dinning Mgr. agreed to seat all of us together at 5:45pm. Would you please find out his name and ask him how I can communicate directly with him before our sail date, Oct. 6. Going to the RCI home office is not working for us, we really wanted to eat at 6:30 as a group and all they say is NO, I am not happy with how RCI handles groups. The worst part is RCI opened MTD months ago but kept putting us off saying they could not handle it until 50 days out from sailing. Guess what, now MTD is booked up and our group is stuck, and it sucks. Thanks to you if you are able to inquire, love your review and hope we can get this worked out before our sail, if I don't I will be talking to the Dinning Manager and let them know how unhappy we are. Thanks, thanks, thanks, Linda
  6. I take a 3inch memory foam pad I got from Amazon and it is great. I also got a sheet for it and a waterproof carry case. It is bulky but we deal with it. the case: DOKEHOM DKA1015RDXL 130L Thickened X-Large Storage Bag (4 Colors), Fabric Clothes Bag, Ultra Size Under Bed Storage, Moisture Proof (Red, XL) The Pad: Milliard Tri Folding Mattress, with Ultra Soft Removable Cover and Non-Slip Bottom (75" x 31") Since it is a tri fold it fits nicely in this case. I am not taking a chance on sleeping on a rock hard bed, especially with my bad back. Linda
  7. I have been looking at the web site and want to know can you purchase a bottle of liquor for consumption in the cabin. I do not want the "package" which includes sodas, etc. I only want a bottle. I called RCI and could not get any answer except for the "package" which I do not want. Does anyone know if this can be done and how to do it. I plan on checking when we are on board. Thanks for you response.
  8. Sounds great, we sail Oct. 6 to eastern Caribbean. I am looking for cruise compass that shows formal nights. We are going to Labadee instead of Coco cay and our first day is a sea day. Also looking for info on what is offered each night, when bars open, etc. Thanks in advance, looking forward to reading all about it.
  9. Thanks for the replies, I am mobile except for long walks and the tub is no problem. Since the ship is so large I thought a scooter would work better than me taking my rollator.
  10. I am thinking of renting a scooter for a cruise on Harmony of the Seas and want to know if anyone knows the width of the cabin doors on Harmony. We are booked into a Junior Suite so I will have room for the scooter in the cabin. Would like to hear from folks who have had a scooter on this ship. Thanks for your response.
  11. We have a group going Oct. 6, San Juan, St. Maarten, Labadee, and want to plan our activities and reservations requests. Does anyone have the cruise compasses for this itinerary? Would also like to know when shows are offered, chocolate buffet, parades, etc. any thing will be appreciated, thanks. Linda
  12. I am also asking for Eastern cruise compasses. We have a group going in October and want to plan our group activities and see when the various shows are scheduled. Thanks in advance.
  13. I gave up and purchased a 2 inch memory foam topper. It folds up and fits in a carrying bag, got all from Amazon. It works very well.
  14. I did write down what we wanted and it was never done. I crossed out what I did not want so that they could see what we really wanted. They never complied with our request. So sorry this has changed.
  15. We were also on this cruise, third time we have done it. We did not eat in the MDR. We wanted too on last Gala Night but no reservations were available (had My Time Dinning) and we did not want to wait up to an hour for a table. We did eat in the Canaletto and were disappointed in everything but the Lasagna. The service was very slow and we were told the kitchen was short a chef, then why did you take all these reservations???? We had reservations at the PG but had to cancel and never could get another evening reservation. Our SS suite was great as were our cabin stewards, Frederick and Fan. They had 28 cabins and were very friendly and eager to serve. Our request for ice in the later afternoon was always kept. Lido at lunch was overcrowded as was several dinners, difficult to find a table for 4. Food was just OK, nothing to brag about. I enjoyed the pasta station several times and it was good. Had sweet and sour pork with noodles at the Asian station that was excellent. Dive In is always good. We did not like the breakfast room service menu. HAL has grouped items together where you either take it all or nothing. We like the muscli and croissants with the delicious coffee. We had to select the "continental" to get the muscli and then were sent dry toast, one pastry and one croissant and fruit. A lot of food is being waisted by doing this and I did comment about it on my survey. The ship is in excellent condition and we did not experience the elevator problem as we were close to the mid-ship elevators which worked every day. We only got off the ship twice to do some shopping at the port. I enjoy the casino and blackjack. Someone hit a slot for $10,000 on this cruise, that is a real win. Any questions, will be happy to answer, I have all the Daily Activity programs.
