  1. I just purchased the drink package for my husband and I already had the royal refreshment package. When I called to see about getting the package for him, they asked why wasn't I getting it and I said, I don't drink!!! They let us have it just for him, guessing since I already had the royal refreshment one

    Day trip to Nevis from St Kitts

    We did this several years ago and had a great time. Pretty much most of the boat was our group! It is a nice sail over to Nevis and then had lunch and beach time, then sailed back. Everyone enjoyed the day!!
  3. Ok, I had called RCCL a few months ago asking when the schedule will be out for 2021 for Australia. They told me this Jan or Feb, which would work out perfectly since we are going on the Navigator March 1st and plan to book while on the ship for the perks. I just called and the guy I talked to said that it won't be out till June of this year!!! OMG!!! Really? I find that hard to believe but does anyone out there have any insight to when it might really be??? If it really isn't till June, can we book a cruise and then change it?? Thanks!!
  4. I've tried to find the answer here but nothing that is current. Sailing on the Mariner for a weekend. I am a diamond member and I know that I can get 1 free 24 hour of internet but would like to know if they give you any other type of savings if you purchase it on the ship for a package? I called and the lady tried to tell me that I get 2 days and I kept telling her no, that is for plus!! So has any diamond members sailed recently and know exactly what the coupon is for internet packages (prefer someone who has done a 3 day cruise!)...thanks!

    Paid upgrade email

    Also got an email asking if we wanted to go on the wait list for an upgrade on a weekend sailing of the Mariner. Tre was no price listed but we said sure! Already in a GS would be cool to be in an OS!!!

    Australia / New Zealand for Dummies!

    We flew of out Detroit to Honolulu and spent 2 nights to help break up the flights and time zone. Leaving Honolulu at noon and arriving at 7:30pm the next night was perfect since we caught a cap nap on the flight and was tired enough by time we landed in Sydney and got to our hotel (Rendezvous Hotel Sydney The Rocks. it was great, opened the balcony curtains to a lit up Opera House!!) We were able to get a great nights sleep and got up in the morning to see the Voyager pulling into port. After we did our cruise to Fiji, we came back to Sydney and spent 4 nights. During that time we were able to do a back stage tour of the Opera House (highly recommend!!!) regular tour of the Opera House, and then did the Hop On Hop Off bus for 2 days. We were able to see so much!! After Sydney we took off for Cairns for 4 nights then onto Brisbane for 3 nights. Try to do so much while you are there! We are already planning our trip back in 2021 to do a cruise around Australia!! 14 nights on the top half and 18 on the bottom half which includes NZ!! can't wait!!
  7. From the US here, we sail the Caribbean all the time!! As for flying over, Miami is a major international airport. You can sail out of either Miami or Ft Lauderdale when landing here. We really love the eastern and southern routes when sailing. Just don't feel that safe when going to Mexico anymore. If you have any questions on the islands, feel free to ask!!

    Retirement Cruise

    Just did the Voyager in Feb for my retirement and our 25th anniversary. Went to Fiji, New Caledonia and Vanuatu out of Sydney. It was one of the best cruises we have ever been on!! Met some fantastic people on it!!

    Hotel choice

    We were in Sydney for 4 nights after our cruise in Feb, we rented a condo in Wooloomooloo and it was perfect. The hop on hop off bus picked us up right around the corner and would take us downtown for the day. On days that we stayed later then what it ran, just took Uber back for a faction of the price of a taxi. Was nice having a washer and dryer so that we were able to get everything cleaned before our next flight to Cairns!!
  10. Thanks everyone for your help!! Looking forward to our visit there!!
  11. Thanks Sent from my iPad using Forums mobile app
  12. We will be staying for a vacation in Australia after our cruise to Fiji. I gave read that you do not usually tip, is this correct? Say for waiters or cabbies? Thanks! Sent from my iPad using Forums mobile app
  13. We will be on the Voyager in a couple weeks for a 12 night cruise to Fiji from Sydney. Does anyone know what nights are formal nights? I'm pretty sure there are 3. Thanks
  14. We are leaving the end of the month on the Voyager out of Syndey. I was hoping to be able to have our room decorated to surprise my husband for our 25th anniversary, but it says that the decorations are not available on the Voyager. Does anyone know why, is it because we are sailing out of Sydney? Funny thing is, RCCL sent me an email asking if we wanted to have any done!! Guess I will have to do something myself!
