  1. The general rule Ive always read is "half the amount of clothes you think you will need and double the amount of cash" πŸ™‚
  2. Glad to hear the pizza has improved at Sorrentos πŸ™‚
  3. I spend at most 6 hours a day in my cabin. Most of that is between 2am - 6am. It is literally just a place to shower and sleep for me. This is why I generally only get an inside, promendade or oceanview cabin. Ive been told for 10 years now how that will change if I ever get an oceanview balcony. We shall see in September πŸ™‚ I honestly dont think it will change anything. I dont go on cruises to be hold up in a <300 sq ft space most of my time but couldnt care less what others do.
  4. I would have told them no too. Increase that OBC to 500.00 a piece refundable and 50% off my cruise fare and I MIGHT consider downgrading πŸ˜‰ No way they would agree to that
  5. If its the accessible crown loft suite, it has an elevator. Bucket list cabin for this full time wheelchair user πŸ™‚
  6. Absolutely this ^. I booked my September 1 Harmony cruise over 500 days out and got what I thought was an excellent price on a accessible oceanview balcony. The same cabin is currently 1100.00 more. I dont expect it to drop much until after final payment date.
  7. Lol!!! πŸ˜„ SOHO Hibachi in Calhoun. About 40 minutes north of Town Center.
  8. Yep, my local place is 15.95 for filet and shrimp hibachi with vegetables. That includes fried rice. For .50 a piece you can add a ginger salad and miso soup. 3 spring rolls is 1.50. Now keep in mind, its not a "show" place where they are actually cooking it in front of you but its excellent and cheap. These prices are ludicrous! I love sushi but Im doing the keto thing so thats out. I will just avoid Izumi this trip πŸ™‚
  9. If you could please let me know here in this thread, I would greatly appreciate it! Chops is really the only place Im interested in but figured I would include Jamies as well for just a few more dollars than what Chops cost alone. I will hold off until I hear back from you! Thank you so much!
  10. The rules say you have to dine on night 1 and 2, correct? They pick the restaurants for you in advance but these can be changed once onboard the ship? I guess what Im asking is, If I purchase this package now and want to eat at Chops and Jamie's, this will be allowed? Hate to miss the first formal night in the MDR but I dont want to pass this offer up. Specialty dining on RC has gotten OUTRAGEOUS during the the three years Ive been away! TIA πŸ™‚
  11. one stop shop below https://www.goportcanaveral.com/services/fly-snooze-cruise.php?gclid=CjwKCAjwhbHlBRAMEiwAoDA34-4ftOPULU--SW-6tqoeI86X_mhMNroVDmYn4QB9mbXC6dmIgV55hhoCyosQAvD_BwE
  12. The only problem with them is their latest pickup time at MCO is 12:30 pm. My moms flight doesnt arrive until 1pm. I reserved her round trip shuttle service for 67.00 from Cocoa Beach Shuttle. A little more expensive but they run at all times of the day and even late evenings.
  13. As of right now, she is on Equinox πŸ™‚ She will take over Edge soon though. Not sure when
  14. Carnival Magic is a great ship! Ive been on her twice. It was even better when Dr E was onboard. For me personally, I like Royal ships better but Carnivals "fun ship" atmosphere, included dining options and food in general. Guys burgers = better than Johnny Rockets (to ME) and included, The pizza was much better than Sorrentos. There is also the blue iquana and Guys BBQ that is included on Magic. The Windjammer on Royal was better than Lido buffet, the MDR is a tie but the specialty dining is where Carnival excels. The steakhouse was MUCH better than my last two Chops experiences. I would agree in that they are both more alike than different in general though. Service has been wonderful on both lines.
  15. She is beautiful, and a wonderful person and Captain from everything Ive read about her. I will sail on her ship one day πŸ™‚
  16. Unless something has changed in the last few months, I believe they only have to provide that if they are taking the dog off the ship into the ports of call. It would be the specific ports of call that require this. The cruise line requires nothing that I know of.
  17. Thanks CruisingJoe! I appreciate that! Ive been wanting to sail on his ship for a LONG time! πŸ™‚
  18. Is there anyway someone can help me do the math to see if Captain Johnny will be the Captain of Harmony on the September 1 cruise yet? That is, unless Royal Caribbean doesnt move him to another ship before then? The best I can tell, he will be but Im not sure Im doing the math right.
  19. I was talking specifically about Captain Kate's cat that John had a problem with πŸ™‚ of which Im sure is kept in her quarters except for the rare "guest appearance". As far as fluffy in the Windjammer, as a owner of a legit service dog, I agree with you 100%. I cannot stand these entitled fools and they make us all look bad.
  20. The same reason Royal allows this I guess? Afterall, a pet is a pet like you said πŸ™‚ Im not a cat fan but they are MUCH cleaner than a parrot. I know this because I had a African Grey. I dont think Captain Kates cat is allowed to roam out in public.
  21. Well, FWIW, this IS a cruise forum so ALL "problems" discussed here are "first world" problems.
  22. I have to agree here. Im in ketosis and have been for over a month. I use regular half and half in my coffee. It hasnt effected anything in the least. As far as sweetener goes I have just gotten use to cream only now.
