  1. Yes two days later. We had just received a free voucher to wash the clothes we had and they asked we give them another day. I’m not sure what they would have done if they didn’t find it though. when it was returned there were two pieces of someone else’s clothing there. Our room attendant takes it away and apparently ran into the owner of the blouses so she was happy too.
  2. The room attendant said management is aware. I figure someone else’s got our stuff because we got someone else’s clothes.
  3. I’m on board freedom and we did the wash and fold laundry bag yesterday. Two bags were returned to us today right after dinner but they were not our clothes. My ticket was there with my name, stateroom number, and number of items. They seemed to write down another cabin number on my slip though. Has anyone ever experienced their laundry being lost and not returned? There were new swim suits, new shorts, and a couple of new t shirts included. Some other older stuff but I would sure hate to lose what I just bought. Any experiences? Our cabin attendant said If they were definitely lost, they would reimburse us. I would rather get the articles of clothing back.
  4. Ok good to know. I’m also thinking is the MDR even open on port days for breakfast and lunch?
  5. Awesome! Thanks for your help! I love this as an option. We have 3 straight port days with early starts. Room service breakfast will be welcomed for sure!
  6. oh great! Glad to know we can order from the MDR breakfast menu! I would like to order for a specific time in the morning so I'm glad to know we can order the night before. Thanks for explaining! Oh and I LOVE eggs benedict! Is there a menu available in the stateroom for the MDR breakfast/lunch/dinner) or do we have to ask the room steward or concierge for it? Thanks again!
  7. My thought is you are not going to get the full experience of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I think you will be rushed. If you rent a car, by the time you disembark and get there and parked it could very easily be 2:30-3:00. You would want to leave no later than 8pm to return the car and get back on board on time. That just feels very rushed. If you are okay just seeing some of it, ok. Just keep in mind that this part of Universal is the most popular and lines will be long especially mid afternoon. At least by dinner time, they will die down, but you have to eat too. Just a lot to think about.
  8. I received a letter from our concierge about our upcoming cruise this weekend. One of the perks mentioned is express room service. There seems to be a dedicated extension number for this so I'm assuming service is faster? As a suite guest, I read that we can order from the dining room menu. Does that include the breakfast/lunch menu or is it just the dinner menu? Also, can you call and order the night before for a specific time or do you wait until you want to order and eat? I would love breakfast room service on those early port days. I can't remember if the room cards you place on your doors are for continental breakfast or a full room service breakfast too. Thanks in advance.

    oh my gosh, i'm glad I saw this LOL. We leave next Sunday and we will be in Aruba in 8 days! I love your pictures too! They did change the time from 4 1/2 hours to 6 hours. I'm not sure what you do for 6 hours? I saw beach time, but is that like half of the time you are there?
  12. I agree with this. They don't change things up enough. I like to see new games being introduced. New shows too. With Quest, you have to change it up.
  13. Yes! That's outstanding! Thank you for sharing!
  14. oh good to know! thanks for sharing your experience!
  15. thank you. That is good to know. I love egg white, veggie omelets so I hope they can make those there otherwise, I know there is the omelet station in the WJ.
  16. Do you have to pay for these classes? I may want to take a spin or two LOL (I know it was corny!)
  17. Uh yea...I remember once being behind the railing in studio B. I hurdled the railing, ran, slide across the floor on my stomach to do the worm. and yes, our team was first LOL! (they needed a woman to do it). I had burns on my knees. I'm getting too old for this crap now LOL! And with recent knee surgery, no way I can participate. It will be interesting just watching.
  18. I booked my first suite and I'm still learning about some of the perks. I'll be on Freedom and it was shared with me that either Chops and Giovannis is open to suites and pinnacle members for breakfast and sometimes lunch. I was told breakfast is "made-to-order". Can someone explain how this experience is different than the MDR for breakfast? Made-to-order makes me think I just tell them what I want, but I wasn't sure that's how it worked. Also, how fast is service compared to MDR? One of the things I don't like about the MDR is how long a breakfast or lunch can take. Sometimes that's fine, but not when I have other activities planned. Thanks in advance...
  19. Okay thanks bob. We do have some excursions scheduled already, but we can take a look. We are in 4 different ports.
  20. Is it best to book on board on online? I know most times you save by booking ahead of time.
  21. Or does anyone have onboard spa prices? This is for freedom if that matters. Thanks again.
  22. I'm looking to book a spa couples massage online before our cruise next week. I see that prices start at $159 for a swedish 50 min massage (we are diamond members). However, when I go into choose days/times, the prices are way higher? $209 or higher ($229, $249). It also seems to depend what day (port vs sea) you choose. Is that the same on board? I know there are in port specials, but I guess I'm wondering why I"m getting all these different prices that seem to depend on the day, time of day, etc. Is that typical even when you book onboard?
  23. sounds fair. I would not have tipped either especially if I haven't used their service the entire time.
