  1. Yikes, I bet the medication thing could get out of control. I never thought about bringing an extra month supply in case of quarantine. Also, why can't they bring you booze or pringles? Seems like a no brainer easy thing to do.
  2. We were just on Summit and there was a number of opportunities for ballroom and latin dancing in the Rendezvous lounge between 5:30pm and midnight to live music and singing.
  3. I got quite a few espressos from Al Bacio on the Summit last week and they were very good quality.
  4. Summit will be more quiet and laid back than FOS. Shows on FOS will most certainly be more professional IMO. I like the pool areas on the Summit better and the food is fairly similar. I might give an edge to the Summit for wait times though. Throughout the ship and restaurants it seems like there is less waiting. The one exception I am aware of is the lounges can have slow drink service from maybe 6pm-9pm? I have been on both. I personally like the atmosphere on Summit better. The bands can be hit or miss on either but right now on summit the Moon light band or whatever they are called were very good and played a wide variety. The Rendezvous Lounge is very good for ballroom and latin dancing. They even have 5:30PM pre-dinner dancing at this point. From what i remember I believe the FOS would have more variety of entertainment, but some of it did take place past our bed time LOL. We are in our 40s but both ready for bed by 11. From what I recall both Summit and FOS have stuff later at night (after 10pm) but it is better attended by passengers on the FOS. some random thoughts...
  5. Thanks for all the information. I appreciate you all taking the time to share. I feel more confident to give booking YC a shot.
  6. Seems like a lot of the new "Suite Experience" "ship within a ship" locations are putting everything at the front of the ship. While our family doesn't tend to be seasick under "normal" conditions (13 cruises under our belt), we have always booked middle or aft staterooms. I will also admit that on a half dozen occasions in "rougher" seas I have needed seasick medicine and my daughter has too. My recollection from walking around all those ships over the years is that the up and down at the front of the ship can be quite significant. Can anyone comment on their experiences with this? I wanted to book a YC stateroom Caribbean Cruise on the Meraviglia next Jan/Feb, but I am having 2nd thoughts. I mean, the restaurant, lounge, and stateroom are all right up there at the front of the ship. If seas were rough could it be we won't even use the YC? LOL Thanks, zenworks911
  7. I heard one more rumor that I wondered if someone could confirm and then I will quit. Someone said that the ship's captain is actually named Captain Morgan. Is that true?
  8. Someone said they have a cruise ship size "Ding King" and that it actually worked. Can anyone confirm? https://www.ebay.com/p/Ding-King-Do-It-Yourself-Dent-Repair-Kit/1773018601?iid=283360610667&chn=ps
  9. Seriously, don't count on the app, on Harmony, some stuff would show up on calendar one day and then be gone the next, leaving you to wonder if your reservation was cancelled or if you forgot to make one. I would print your reservation schedule just before cruise. Everyone in are party had same issues.
  10. I think I have a copy of it at home. I will try to get it for you. Don't trust the app, when you get onboard, get a hard copy of schedule from spa.
  11. We did self disembark and left room at 7:30am. We were in a taxi at 7:45am. This was Harmony of the Seas last week. However I am not sure if you can count on that. We took stairs and did the luggage valet. You would not qualify for luggage valet because your flight is before 11:30am (i believe that is the cut off time). The elevators were already very busy and full.
  12. No it didn't work, i tried, and I also asked at the help desk and they said it was discontinued. Your best bet is an iphone or internet plan. Someone mentioned google voice, not sure if that really works though, i didn't try.
