  1. I remember seeing your report on TV when they aired it. Have really loved your review. Thank you for getting me excited about my next cruise.
  2. I was wrong the freeplay also has the 1 year sailing limitation.
  3. Not only is it 14 days from booking, the sail date has to be within a year. So that eliminated my newest cruise. It looks like the $100 freeplay is 30 days still with no sailing limitation.
  4. Thanks for the replies! Not sure how many are going to be in our group yet. Last cruise we had 22 but I'm guessing this one will be closer to 10 maybe. We are normally a drive to the port kind of group and this time will involve flying into Florida. This is actually my favorite part, planning everything.
  5. I've been a regular Carnival cruiser for years and have 1 Royal cruise under my belt. It was not an enjoyable experience because of circumstances out of Royal's control and what I thought was lackluster food. The highlight of that trip was the suite and the concierge we had on the Liberty of the Seas. I am now looking at the Harmony of the Seas and the 2BR Aquatheater suites. From my understanding the Genie that is part of the Star class suites will make my previous experience look a little bland. I have also read there seems to be a marked difference depending on the Genie.
  6. I didn't find Royal head and shoulders above Carnival overall. I do love Carnival but on most aspects of the actual cruise I found Royal better. Now some of that might have been the Vista Suite but I am looking forward to going on an Oasis class ship. That will probably be my next non group cruise with just the family. I do leave on a Carnival 4 day cruise tomorrow and I am really looking forward to the food after the Royal trip.
  7. Been a Dallas Stars fan since they moved down here. My daughter also played hockey, inline and ice. She lives down in Austin and still plays in a couple of leagues as does her husband.
  8. We had 20 but 3 people didn't want it and I had a free 1 device package. So everyone who wanted access took part. We were spread across 7 cabins.
  9. We bought 4 4-device packages for our group. It made the internet package really affordable. One of the best things we bought on the trip.
  10. You are absolutely correct. It is one of the reasons I wanted to wait and write the review. My last 7 day on Carnival I had a great time and had considered it one of my best but when I looked back on it I realized the actual cruise was nothing special. The reason I enjoyed it was the excursions and the people with us. This cruise was just the opposite. I had a horrible time but when I look back at it, the cruise itself was fine and I honestly feel if I hadn't injured my ankle it would have been awesome except for the food. My biggest regret was not partaking in more of what was offered.
  11. We were testing Palo Alto Global Protect at my office.
  12. We went with a small group on the Oct 13 Liberty of the Seas cruise to Cozumel, Grand Cayman, and Jamaica. This review is a little late. I wanted to get a little distance from the trip before posting a review. It was not a good trip and I wanted to make sure I was fair to Royal Caribbean in my review. I am a long time Carnival cruiser and this was my first RCI cruise. We chose this cruise for one reason. The 4BR Vista suite came open and it fit with our time frame. We had a total of 7 cabins booked for 14 guests and there were 8 of us in the suite. It has been too
  13. Is sports betting available on all their ships? Do they offer parlay's, money line bets, or over/under or just single game line bets? This would really make my upcoming cruise way more exciting.
  14. Thanks for your review and I love your website. I'm in the Villa suite in October so reading about it has been nice. I have also been experiencing the joys of Royal shore side customer service. We have 8 in the suite and 14 other right by us and I have been worried about dining. I'm glad to hear the concierge is helpful. One question that is probably weird, does the pub have a dart board? We enjoy that the carnival ships have at least a plastic tip board. Once again I am enjoying your review.
