  1. You would be incorrect. The Jones act was temporarily waived (quite needlessly, but It became political)There are tons of cargo just sitting at the ports waiting for trucks to pick them up. The bottleneck is with the lack of truck drivers reporting to work in Puerto Rico. Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Pizza - Majesty of the Seas

    Sounds like typical Royal "pizza". It is worse than a generic brand frozen pizza, in my opinion. I am an avid pizza eater and I really wish they would find a way to have good pizza onboard. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  4. Gratuity: A small sum of money given for a service over and above what is due. -Merriam-Webster So if it is "compulsory" is it really a Gratuity? Sounds more like a tax. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  5. I very rarely give anything a "perfect" score on any survey. It has to be something that is way above and beyond my expectations to earn that high of praise. I expect the servers and staff to do the job that they were hired and trained to do. If they do so then I will give them a 4/5 or a 9/10, depending on the scale. Having a server beg me for a perfect score would just anger me to the point of a lower score and a complaint to their supervisor. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  6. I've never understood why some people will read a post and then proceed to attack the op. If you don't have anything constructive to offer then do the rest of us a favor and go on to the next thread, we don't need to read your condescension. To the OP, I hope you get a refund on your excursion and I think you should get some OBC for your troubles. [emoji6] Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Your Favorite Part Of Your Balcony

    Sitting back and listening to the waves hitting against the ship.. Eating breakfast while enjoying the scenery.. Watching the stars at night.. Sipping on a Lava Flow.. Watching runners as we are leaving ports. Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    OMG.... Slamming Doors

    We have also always heard the toilets flush on cruises, especially at night when it is more quiet. You can hear toilets flushing in some hotels at night also. I also hate the door slamming, but I'm not going to let it ruin my cruise. If it becomes an issue then I will complain to guest services. Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    OMG.... Slamming Doors

    Once on Mariner my wife had the balcony door wide open and I opened the room door without even thinking and the suction effect pulled the closet door completely off its' hinges. We were able to reattach it with no problem and enjoyed a good laugh. Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Tired of all the games with pricing

    I agree. In fact, we just reserved our first cruise since 2013 due to the diminishing value of Royal's product. They have to pay for all of these new ships somehow, I suppose! I don't really see much value on being a repeat/loyal Royal customer either. They seem to have made a corporate decision that they are going to place their focus on NEW cruisers at the expense of their existing customers. Cruising had been our first choice of vacations since 2007, but we now look at land based vacations just as much or more-so. Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    What else are they cutting out!?

    They are going where the money is... China. We will be lucky to have dinghys sailing from the US in another 10 years. LoL Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  12. They are going to build the type of ship that offers the most possible ROI. They are also targeting new cruisers. To get new cruisers attention they need new ships that cause a media splash. Personally, Voyager class is my favorite by far. I wish the Mariner would come back to the US. Sent from my iPhone using Forums

    Which line has the best food overall?

    The best answer is "whichever one you like best". Taste is so subjective that you can really only rely on your own experience. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
