    Charging my iPhone.

    Thanks. I have something like that on order. I don’t need it for the ship. They have US style outlets.

    Charging my iPhone.

    I am not asking about the ship. I have ceruised many times. I’ll be in Australia for 3 days before a cruise and in Singapore two days after. But thanks anyhow.
  3. I am buying adapters and power converters for my pre cruise stay in Sydney. Do I need to get different cables too? I was chatting to the rep at Apple and they said I should. I’ll also be staying over in Singapore after the cruise. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Airlines.

    We are on an RCCL Australian cruise next March. Now looking to book airfare. Just found out about Jetstar. I wonder if anyone has used them and if they recommend them at all. Most likely we will use them ( or another airline) from Hawaii as we want to break up the long flight from NY. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Promenade Stateroom: Noise?

    We've had a promenade cabin a few times. Since the prices were so good we could not pass them up. Well worth it. Never had an issue with noise except a little when we had the Ben & Jerry's Suite. But not enough to bother us much. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yes when we had the "rubber bands " On our wrists to ID roll call people at the agreed upon meeting place. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    No Dynamic Dining on Oasis Class

    I'm booked on Harmony and had my TA change it to second seating. We had MTD if it had DD. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Travel insurance

    On our first cruise from NYC we did not as it was last minute and an hour away. But while on this cruise we saw our first sea rescue and it opened our eyes. Over the years we've seen many more. Plus we travel to more exotic places. So we decided it was well worth it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    No Dynamic Dining on Oasis Class

    I am booked on Harmony for the US inaugural. I was not happy about the DD concept. So when we heard it was gone we were thrilled and our dining had been changed to second seating, our favorite. Now we will relax and enjoy our cruise instead of stressing over where and when to eat. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Food on Royal Caribbean

    I've never gone hungry. I always find something I like at each meal, venue. Taste is so subjective. I heard people say everything was inedible but yet they did not starve. So you can't really go by what others think. I think grits are gross no matter what you add to it, but others think it is a gift from the heavens. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. It's so true. We have been cruising for over a dozen years and have heard all the same over the years. Had lunch with an elderly couple that had been cruising for eons and all they did was complain. They swore they'd never cruise RCI again. In general I look it it is this way, as long as I am having a good time, I don't pay attention to small things. If my spouse gets grumpy that would ruin my cruise than any of the other stuff. But luckily cruises make happy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Pinnacle member attacked in Naples Italy

    Not the only reason. Many of the top travel sites warn about Naples. And we also have family there who say the same. And since we used to work in and visit NYC frequently we are always aware of our surroundings. But in all of the international cities we have visited this is the only one where we saw so much aggressive behavior. But I guess because you were safe, the rest is made up? .

    Pinnacle member attacked in Naples Italy

    When we were in Naples waiting for our Pompeii tour we walked around the port. We witnessed aggressive drivers and bikers and saw a huge altercation in the middle of the street. Naples is not a safe place to wander off on your own. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Mediterranean cruise

    Don't attempt tours like Pompeii. Hard enough to walk under normal circumstances. In Rome there was a bus tour that was good for people with Mobility issues. Not much walking. Look At the ship brochures and they will rate tours on walkability. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
