  1. I booked through a third party site using paypal as a deposit. Saved $5 per person too and no fraud.
  2. Per Royal Customer Service "The package does not include room service, beverages, or any dishes that have an additional cost in a specialty restaurant or Main Dining Room (i.e. lobster, filet mignon, surf and turf, etc.). Additionally, the package is not valid for Chef's Table or Culinary Experiences/Activities (i.e. Sushi Cooking Class, Bottomless Galley Brunch, etc.)."
  3. Check your price. Indy 11/21/19 was $52 when first booked, went up to $65, down to $61, back to $65. Now it is showing $56. I purchased at $61 and canceled and rebooked now at the $56.
  4. I will be sailing on Independence of the Seas. I received an email response stating that Izumi and Playmakers are both included and they are considered a la carte venues meaning there is a max of $35 allowance.
  5. I was able to cancel a flight booked through Air2Sea within 24 hours about a month ago through a phone call with them.
  6. Thank you for sharing this idea. I'm going to try to make one up for Indy in November. I will try to make it bar specific. Boleros should be more Latin/Caribbean drinks, Schooner - Classic cocktails, Playmakers - drinks at sporting events so beer, Pool bar frozen drinks ect. I will have to do more research and find bar specific menus to help me with the options and scores for each. GO BUCKS! O! H!
  7. Initial offer was $49 now it is $46. 27 days out from sailing on Indy.
  8. Fine print from Royal Caribbean member benefit. 7 Diamond Lounge is an exclusive benefit for only Diamond, Diamond Plus and Pinnacle Club members and cannot be extended to include friends and family. Complimentary specialty coffees are only available in the dining room on days when breakfast is being served. On ships where a Diamond Lounge is available there will be no Nightly Special Diamond Event or complimentary speciality coffees available in the dining room. The Diamond Lounge is designated as a smoke-free area. We respectfully request that guests observe a smart/casual dress code when visiting the Lounge (no swimming or pool attire is allowed, footwear is required at all times). Guests of 21 years and younger must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times. Guests and friends of Diamond, Diamond Plus and Pinnacle Club members are not allowed into the Diamond Lounge due to limited space. I'm thinking turning Diamond after all at a ripe age of 33 was a big mistake reading responses from past and present Diamond members.
  9. I first wanted to go to Paradise Beach, but with an 18 month old, I narrowed it down to Allegro or Playa Mia for the kids splash area.
  10. November 1998 Grandeur of the Seas. My first cruise ever. I also celebrated my 13th birthday on that cruise. Just over 20 years later, I'm now at 89 cruise points!
  11. I agree. Roysten is the best off the beaten path tour driver in the Caribbean. If you want the cookie cutter tour, then book elsewhere, from the cruise line excursion desk I suppose.
  12. Big Beards, no need to look further.


    My wife and I have done this tour in the past. This is an action packed nonstop activity tour. Bring snacks for the bus ride. It is well worth it for first time visitors to see as much as Dominica as you can in one day. Everything we went to and saw was excellent. Note: Your tour group will all hit the buffet back on the ship when done, then you will all go to your cabin to clean up and nap until a late dinner around 8 or 9 and see your tour group again eating a late dinner in the buffet. At least that was my experience.
