  1. You can use your voucher to get a glass of wine in the dining room during the diamond cocktail hours.
  2. I called about my May 2020 Adventure cruise and it went up $1000 from when I booked it this past May.
  3. Punto de Vista has BOGO mojitos daily from opening (11:30 ?) until 5 pm. We always go there for a meal and mojitos when our ship stops in Puerto Rico. The food is excellent and authentic. Prices are very reasonable.
  4. I have several cardigans from Macy's that I love and wear all year. They're light weight but warm and wash well. https://www.macys.com/shop/product/karen-scott-crew-neck-cardigan-created-for-macys?ID=10172598&CategoryID=260&swatchColor=Blush I also like the idea of you wearing your black hoodie with a bright colored 3/4 or long sleeve t-shirt.
  5. Sorry, I haven't been on for awhile. Try a low heat setting with out steam. If that doesn't work go to medium. It's been years since I did any batik.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. I agree. Why take the chance that something could happen to your checked luggage.
  9. 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.
  10. Since you prefer Celebrity to Royal, have you looked into a fall Canada/New England cruise on the Summit?
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. On our last 2 Anthem cruises (Nov. 2018 and May 2019) we were able to use our Diamond vouchers in the dining room.
  15. At the end of your cruise ask your cabin attendant to use his/her vacuum.
  16. We've never had a problem getting $1 bills at guest services.
  17. The Northstar wasn't working for the entire previous (May 9-19) cruise.
  18. Yes. Also hot tea, flavored water, coffee, hot chocolate, juice at breakfast, milk.
  19. My husband's favorite drink is a coconut mojito. That's what he drinks when we cruise. The Anthem bartenders make very good mojitos.
  20. I also swear by d-mannose. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23633128 https://clinicaltrials.gov/show/NCT01808755
  21. You should check your cruise planner at RCI's website. You will be able to choose an arrival time, fill out your setsail pass, print out luggage tags, etc. Whenever we have purchased liquor onboard it has been delivered to our stateroom and our cabin attendant has always put it in our cabin. We have never found it in the hall outside our cabin. I imagine that you will find your water in your cabin when you arrive. If it is not there before dinner call guest services and ask about it. You should bring a print out of your receipts for anything that was purchased before the cruise.
  22. I sent a new pair of black jeans to be washed and ironed. They came back faded and no longer looked new. I will only use the laundry if I need something pressed.
