  1. Have stayed in 8046 and multiple times in 6028 (a sweet 16). We find the sweet 16 balconies much more spacious and useful than the triangular ones. We would book sweet 16s over the triangular balconies every time. However, we may not want to book 6035 because it is port (smoking) side and not far from the open deck at the theater lobby one decks below (possible smoker hangout).
  2. Good advice above. IMHO best Ocean View on M Class ships. The larger windows are "left over" from when the area was the conference rooms....not originally designed as staterooms. I would book here.
  3. X has offered a disembarkation day Everglades air-boat tour. We did this some years ago and it was very well run. Luggage goes into the tour bus hold and terminates at either FLL or MIA. Very easy and fun.
  4. Thank you for this post on the fate of the old R Ships. Very interesting.
  5. Have actually stayed in 6302 and would NOT recommend. Balcony is slightly larger than standard, but nothing like the sweet 16 on M-class (which we have also stayed in multiple times). The balcony of 6302 ends, but the roof of the restaurant below (at balcony floor level - it was blue in the ship photos) continues out. Not only does that block your view down to the water, but crew would walk & work there using the window washing machines (yes, on the restaurant roof right outside your balcony) while the ship was in port.....most days. Guess why that's why the res
  6. Completely agree with the above post. Well said. To the OP: 1. Welcome to CC. I see this was your first post. 2. Suggest in DR you do a tour or shore excursion. Don't recommend any independent exploration there. 3. As others have said - Nassau is nothing special.
  7. Easy to keep prices high when your ships are not sailing. Why cut prices when it's all demand & no supply. Be patient.... when the ships return and are not at capacity (whatever that is) ... deals will follow.
  8. Mark - Amsterdam is a wonderful city with spectacular sights. Can't comment on this particular tour, but can only suggest that you look into what is there.... and see what you want to see.... not what the slow-moving X bus tour takes you to. Some great sites include: Rijksmuseum Van Gogh Museum Anne Frank House Daily flower auction at Aaslmeer Keukenhof Gardens - In early May it will still be open You will miss most of these on the X tour and that's a shame. Please consider staying near the Museums and seeing what you want to see. It's an eas
  9. One last thought - If C1 is in your budget, the balconies of these aft cabins are amazing on all M-Class ships.
  10. Try this Thread: https://boards.cruisecritic.com.au/topic/1289058-sweet-16-cabin-question-on-summit/ Do a search there is plenty of info here.
  11. Can't help with window-washer location, but have stayed in 8046 and the larger angled balcony is nice. However, that larger balcony makes the balcony in 8048 not-private (right next to the angled balcony). The person standing at the edge of the 8046 balcony can look right on to the balcony in 8048. I would not stay in 8048. Prefer the "sweet-16" cabins to either of these.
  12. Here in New York it's hard to believe any cruising will begin this year.....but I sure hope you are all right. Fingers crossed and watching with optimism!!
  13. If needed you can lift the bed frame to slide the case under the bed. Have found that the frame extends lower than the actual space under the bed and is easily lifted slighty. Three cases should be no problem....you have the whole space under the bed.
  14. From a Cruiser in New York: Please try to understand the situation here. Writing from just outside NYC. New Yorkers have been strong & determined. I am proud of our state and proud to be a part of our recovery. As a whole, there has been incredible compliance with tough restrictions for 12 weeks now and counting. We have done an unbelievable job of beating back a horrible illness brought to us because ...well, everyone from all over the world comes to New York. If your area has not had a hard-time with this illness, be grateful. As everyone knows, N
