  1. I've had luck getting dining type changed when we've linked the reservations but that may not happen in all cases.
  2. Call Royal and ask them to link your reservations together. With linked reservations, they 'should' be able to just seat you at a bigger table. (at least that has been my experience when linking reservations together even when they weren't booked at the same time)
  3. To be safe, I would call Royal and ask that they add your mother's name to the list. You will also need to add her name to the disembarkation list as soon as you get on board. It has been my experience that if your name is not on the list you are last in line meaning if someone on the list comes up, they take them first. On our Liberty cruise this past May, they disembarked in the order you registered.
  4. When Explorer sails from Miami, does the ship offer luggage service to FLL?
  5. Hi, Has anyone used wheelchair assistance at the Royal Caribbean cruise terminal in Galveston? If so, how does it work. Do you ask a porter? Any information would be appreciated. Thanks,
  6. DH and I (mid-50's) do the Chef's Table every cruise and consider it one of our favorite activities. My parents (mid 80's) don't particularly care for it. It really depends on you and your likes/dislikes.
  7. We did not have the drink package. I have not heard of anyone getting a credit for the wine for having the drink package since it's included as part of dinner.
  8. I don't know for sure about the brunch because we didn't ask about it. However, whenever we told them we had the UDP and wanted to do one of the specials they gave us some type of discount.
  9. We didn't use use the A la cart restaurants but when we asked I was told the credit was per person (the Chefs table credit was per person).
  10. My experience using UDP on the 11/25 sailing of Oasis was the following: Once on-board we were able to book all reservations for the week. We did not have any issues getting a table for the time/restaurant we wanted. Only Giovanni was open for Embarkation lunch. Chops was reserved for people who purchased the 'Key' We were able to book Izumi for habatchi on the first night and were told if space is available they will allow you to use the UDP package. JR was not included with the package Our waiter brought lobster tails to the table on lobster night (we did not ask for them, he just brought them) Tip/service charge is included but if you have an exceptional waiter then I would tip more (in cash) We were given a $30 discount off the price of the Chef's table - which I highly recommend Sea day lunches have limited hours 11:30 - 1:30 so if you want to eat at a specific restaurant for lunch then you need to make a reservation (high recommend doing this)
  11. On Oasis now and have UDP. Johnny Rockets was not included as part of the package. We were allowed to do Izume habatchi the first night. This is offered if space available.
