  1. You can remove any wax remaining in the fabric by ironing it between clean white paper towels. The heat will melt the wax and the paper towels will absorb the melted wax.
  2. Not too long ago Royal changed how water could be brought on board. At one time it was OK to put a luggage tag on a case and send it through with your luggage. Now it has to be carried on board by the passenger.
  3. I agree. Why take the chance that something could happen to your checked luggage.
  4. We did 2 Alaska cruises, both with Royal and both were great. The first cruise was a 7 night round trip from Vancouver. We loved Alaska so much that we went back a couple of years later and did a 12 night cruise tour, south bound. Those were the days before we could afford or wanted to spend the money for balcony cabins. We spent a lot of time on deck and in the public rooms. I don't think that we missed anything by not having a balcony cabin.
  5. Since you prefer Celebrity to Royal, have you looked into a fall Canada/New England cruise on the Summit?
  6. I just called to checked on the 2 cruises that I have booked. My Dec. 2019 Anthem cruise went up $200 and my May 2020 Adventure cruise went up $600.
  7. We were on the Anthem in May, MTD. My husband either wore shorts or jeans every night to the dining room without any problems. He was far from the only one who was dressed like that.
  8. We always buy third party travel insurance through the trip insurance store. The insurance is calculated on the non-refundable costs of the cruise. So, taxes, fees and port expenses and travel insurance are not included when calculating the cost of the cruise.
  9. On our last 2 Anthem cruises (Nov. 2018 and May 2019) we were able to use our Diamond vouchers in the dining room.
  10. At the end of your cruise ask your cabin attendant to use his/her vacuum.
  11. We've never had a problem getting $1 bills at guest services.
  12. The Northstar wasn't working for the entire previous (May 9-19) cruise.
  13. Yes. Also hot tea, flavored water, coffee, hot chocolate, juice at breakfast, milk.
