  1. We were on Explorer 1/24 to 2/2 Terminal G and Luggage Valet was offered. MIA - American, United, Delta. (Delta only domestic flights) Flights depart between 11:30am - 11:59pm FLL Airport - American, Alaska, United, Delta (domestic only) Flights depart between 2pm - 11:59pm Southwest Flights depart between 2pm - 6pm
  2. As noted previously, we were on the 8/22 cruise that docked early in Baltimore on Friday 8/30 due to the propulsion problem. Totally agree...I seriously doubt that the Captain would have left the Balt dock if they had any idea that the problem was not fixed. Agree...the possibility of heading into a hurricane path with potential engine problems would be a concern for the Captain. Agree...People in Florida are being advised to evacuate and RCI personnel are not only dealing with GOTS mechanical problems but also Passengers, crew, employees, and ships that could be at risk due to
  3. I can appreciate your feelings about a 30 minute cruise. We were watching the Ship Tracking to see if GOTS left the dock on time since we knew of the propulsion problem. We were happy to see the ship leave but, as we all know, the ship made a short run and turned back to the dock. At first we thought perhaps it was a medical emergency but when the ship did not leave the dock after an hour...well...we figured it had to be the propulsion problem. Quite possibly you have not heard anything from RCI yet because, if employees are at their desks in Miami, they most likely have their hand
  4. There are many reasons why people choose to cruise on Lady G. Itinerary can be one of those reasons. Yes, lots of ships in Florida but that also means long travel to the pier. Many people can drive to the Baltimore port in a few hours. It can be a large savings for families to drive instead of fly. Baltimore has to be one of the friendliest ports we have cruised from. It is located right off of I-95. Arriving at the port, you drive right up to the ship and baggage is unloaded. If is not that traffic jam that happens at many of the ports. From that location, you drive
  5. We were on the 8/22 sailing. The propulsion problems started sometime Wed. You could feel the ship vibrating. In the Crown Lounge the vibrations caused the chandelier parts to strike against each other making a noise. Thursday they announced that we would be arriving back at Balt dock Friday eve. They hoped to be able to make necessary repairs before the next sailing. When we got into the bay, the ship really rolled side to side. Never experienced that before. Going over the Bay Bridge Tunnel in the daylight was also Very different. Normally the sky is dark both leaving the Bay and
  6. What is the depth of the pool in the Solarium in on the Adventure Of The Seas?
  7. Why has it been so difficult to locate a roll call for the 3/28 sailing of the Grandeur OTS? I am not alone...many have posted messages noting the same frustration. I tried to find a roll call many months ago and Nothing showed. So...I went to FB. There was a roll call. Having been a member of CC for something like 19 years...I really prefer the comfort of CC. Last week I tried again to find a roll call. Nothing showed but I keep clicking on "cannot find your roll call"...and after going around the "barn" several times...I located a Roll Call that was started in Dec 2
  8. We got off the Jewel on Sunday - Port of Miami. Express Departures were tentatively scheduled for 7:30am. AT 7:30, the dock workers were all standing around waiting for word to start offloading luggage, etc. The express departures and luggage offloading did not begin until 8:15am. Things moved rather quickly from that point. We were scheduled to depart 8:15...got off ship at 9am. Grabbed a taxi. When we got to the Miami airport both pre check and the regular Security lines were long. Lines moved quickly, it took us 20 minutes to clear security. Our flight was not u
  9. I was asked about cell phone service on this itinerary...Balt - Charleston - Port Canaveral - Miami - Nassau - Balt. Does regular cell phone service work when the ship travels the East Coast? I tend to think that you need the use of the ship cell tower since the ship does not "hug" the coast enough for land cell towers to reach the phones.
  10. We did not need to get vaccinations. I did take the precaution of carrying and using Insect spray as an attempt to avoid bug bites.
  11. Just off the Jewel OTS out of Miami. Yes, lots of people wore shorts to the MDR. We were on the Anthem OTS in December sailing out of Bayonne. Did not see anyone wear shorts to the MDR. This may have been because of the time of year/cooler weather. I can accept shorts in the MDR with a nice shirt/top. Seated, no one notices the shorts. But wearing a Tee shirt? My concern is that some people go ashore and perspire. They come back on ship and go directly to the MDR in the same clothing. After all, they are on vacation and if they have an aroma, everyone has to accept that scent thro
