  1. Does anyone have experience staying in the Royal Suite since the Amplification on Navigator of the Seas (or even just before)? Per deck plans, it looks like it is DIRECTLY underneath Johnny Rockets Express. Many years ago, perhaps on Navigator or Mariner, we stayed in a cabin underneath Windjammer and it was insanely noisy. Just curious for anyone with experience staying underneath Johnny Rockets Express in the Royal Suite on the amplified Navigator to see if there was any discernable noise in the mornings or at night. Thanks!!
  2. We've been exclusive loyal to Royal for at least 20 years, and over the past several years we've been exclusively on the Oasis class ships and love them (although our last voyage on Symphony left a little to be desired, but I digress). We're looking at the Disney Fantasy for next summer as we CONSTANTLY hear amazing things about the ship, and I'm curious if there are any families who have been on BOTH an Oasis class Royal Caribbean ship AND the Disney Fantasy, who can really help me compare them. My wife and I would have our 12 year old daughter with us. On the Oasis class, we enjoyed the karoke in On Air, liked walking on the Promenade, we loved the AquaTheater (but I know there's nothing like that on other cruise lines), and enjoyed some of the more casual dining such as El Loco Fresh, Sorrento's pizza, and Windjammer for lunch. We also liked the open feel of Central Park and the Boardwalk. Yes, I know some of those are the neighborhood concept exclusive to Royal Caribbean, but outside of the pool deck, does the Disney Fantasy have enough outdoor activities? I'm curious the general types of onboard activities that aren't just bars/lounges/nightclubs. The rotating dining concept seems interesting, but I wasn't sure if people were truly happy with it. Are the tweens really happy with The Edge? That's one area where Royal Caribbean is lacking - their program for tween ages. So, if you've been on both an Oasis class ship and the Disney Fantasy, please reply and let me know thoughts/experiences you can share. THANK YOU in advance!!!

  4. We are considering Oasis out of New York/New Jersey NEXT May (assuming everything subsides), but I had a BIG question - I've heard the seas traveling down the Atlantic can be a lot rougher than Caribbean seas. Now, we got off of Symphony in early March (Miami and Caribbean) and those were some of the roughest seas I've ever encountered in 20+ Royal Caribbean sailings. I know that if there is a storm of some sort, it can make an impact. Just asking - GENERALLY speaking, how are the seas on the larger cruise ships for people that have gone out of NY/NJ versus going out of Miami/Ft Lauderdale/Port Canaveral? Thanks in advance and stay safe, everyone!
  5. Hi - does anyone have recent main dining room menus (or heck even specialty, including coastal kitchen, since they can change) for Symphony Eastern Itinerary? We're doing the Coco Cay, St. Thomas, St. Kitt's run. I was going to study in advance to see what I could ask for that might be gluten free... Thanks in advance!!! -Rob
  6. My daughter and I both have celiac. A year ago I wasn't overly impressed with the gluten-free choices on the Symphony. Anyone been on there recently that has info on gluten-free options - cakes, breads and the fun stuff (not just the obvious "hey - grilled chicken is gluten free" - lol)? For instance, can we not get gluten free pasta in the main dining room? How about at Jamie's Italian? Any recommendations for specific "off the menu" gluten-free items you've requested and they've been able to do? I know people say to let your Head Waiter know and they'll take care of it. Problem is that in reality we'll get a preview of the next night's menu, but nothing really special happens other than choosing something gluten free from the next day's menu. Plus we really like the specialty restaurants and did not know what types of fun/cool gluten free items they can make. We can get burgers, steaks and grilled chicken anywhere of course - but we are hoping they can do some really good breads, pastries, breakfast foods, or other great goods in a gluten free method, which would normally be full of gluten. Thanks in advance!!! -Rob
  7. Looking at taking a cruise out of Cape Liberty next June. We've never sailed out of NY/NJ and come down the Atlantic coast. Are the seas typically rougher than sailing from Florida and doing the Caribbean? I know it's hurricane season, so take out the remote odds of an early hurricane. Just curious as to whether the waters are any rougher or not based on your experience. Thanks in advance
  8. What are the best “off the menu” gluten free entrees or desserts that you’ve had the MDR or a specialty restaurant make for you? Curious what all they can do besides the few “official” Gluten free items on the nightly menus as there are not many official ones on the menu itself. Be specific please! I truly appreciate it!
  9. For anyone who has been on the Symphony, what are some tips/tricks you found that aren’t necessarily publicized in all of the usual e-brochures/marketing? Thanks in advance for your thoughts/tips/stories!
