  1. We sailed on the Allure of the Seas in 2018 and there was a family comedy show. I do not see this on the cruise planner or on the Compass versions that I have been able to see. Is this still a thing on Symphony Western Caribbean itineraries??
  2. We have an upcoming Symphony of the Seas Western cruise (Nov) and have stops at both costa maya and coco cay. We have two 12 year olds and are trying to decide between the two water park options. We have been to Costa Maya several times but have NEVER done the Lost Kingdom water park there choosing instead to hang out on the beach in Mahahual. We have never been to Coco Cay so that experience will be all new. I am sure my kids would be happy to try both, but I am not particularly keen on paying my own $99 admission twice to stand and watch (I won't be sliding down any slides myself). Maybe it is more of a question of alternatives? Costa Maya has more alternatives than Coco Cay for beach breaks, excursions, port shopping, etc.
  3. Do all passengers in the same cabin have to board together or can my wife and I board separately.I want to be among the first on the ship before noon she has some things to do and can only be at the port after 1pm. I assume all passengers in a cabin have to board together so that they can enforce carry on wine and soda limits per cabin.
  4. Our first RCCL cruise was on the Allure in August 2018 and we did the 3 night Specialty Dining Package. We enjoyed 2 of the 3 specialty experiences but have decided not to do another specialty package on an upcoming Symphony cruise and maybe just do one or two specialty restaurants. On our last sailing I remember seeing staff everywhere trying to push specialty dining but I didn't see what they were offering specifically. Does anyone know whether on-board specialty dining discounts are common place and what specific discounts are generally offered on board? BOGO?
  5. Trying to decide between the NCL Breakaway and the RCL symphony for an upcoming family western Carib cruise. The ports are all the same except for Harvest Caye (Belize) vs CoCo Caye (Bahamas’s) and the price is remarkably close. I don’t like that my kids won’t be big enough for one of the slides on Breakaway (that will be such a tease) but the Breakaway does have a ropes course not offered on symphony. I am not sure if the ropes course is a once or twice a cruise thing unlike the water slides which can occupy them for hours. Can anyone comment from a 12 year olds perspective what the better ship option would be?
