  1. Is the “lack of limes” a thing with Royal? LOL! A few years ago we were on Brilliance and they ran out of limes early in the trip, too. Everything else was in full supply so we joked at how strange that was, especially for a cruise departing Florida. Obviously not the end of the world, but it definitely had an effect on my favorite cocktail at the time, the mojito! The OP’s post just triggered that memory.
  2. I get it, but I think you missed my point. Someone mentioned they get into PC at 6am due to the itinerary change. IF RC amended a Disney excursion to take advantage of the early arrival time, one could effectively have more hours at the Kingdom. Not a couple of hours. Then it might be worth it. Either way, I would be upset with the itinerary change that only included 2 ports from NJ, but I’d try to make the best of it.
  3. The video may be a bit misleading. I don’t believe you actually have to wear a headset during dinner, but I plan to dine in this restaurant on my 2025 Utopia cruise. I think the overall experience of the views from this “train” will be interesting. As long as it’s done right and they account for any possible motion sickness. If you’re done true VR in real life, you’ll know what I mean 🤢🤮
  4. I’d be quite upset with that revised itinerary, only 2 ports. I’d rather skip PC instead of Nassau, although I’ve been to Nassau many times. Arriving so early in PC could be a positive if there is an early excursion to Disney. It’s about 75 minutes to Magic Kingdom. If the excursion can get you there at 9am, you’d have a good 5.5hrs to explore. If Disney is of no interest, there’s Sea World or Universal. And, of course, the spaceships. Just trying to make lemonade out of this lemon.
  5. I received this email that my November 2024 cruise dropped in price. While the cost of my particular suite didn’t decrease, the cost of my mom’s cabin decreased by $320 (Boardwalk view balcony). I called Crown & Anchor and they reduced the price and sent a new invoice! I’ll keep watching for decreases on my other cruises 🥰
  6. I remember the magnificent ice carving demonstrations.
  7. Is this the receipt you were referring to?
  8. I also just booked it for 2 of my upcoming cruises - Feb 2024 Allure and Nov 2024 Oasis. Canceled the Beach Club cabanas. We’ll have seniors with us who love to watch the crowds, yet need a place to lounge if necessary. I booked the Hideout cabanas so hopefully it’s a compromise between action and “peace”. My mom’s gonna LOVE this 🥰
  9. Isn’t ironic that a ship built for families is so very expensive? When everyday people are complaining about the price of gas and other necessities, how are those same people expected to afford a cruise on this Iconic vessel?
  10. Wow! I as curious and checked a few dates for Mar/Apr 2026. Waaay too expensive for the suites, let alone a balcony cabin. I’ll stick with Oasis class for a while and perhaps even go back to some of the smaller / older ships.
  11. Wow! $7500 for a 4nt trip to the Poconos seems extraordinarily expensive, especially if alcohol was not included. But I did like “bing bong”! 😆
  12. I’ve done Grandeur and Brilliance out of Tampa. It’s spectacular going under the Skyway bridge at night, but I agree with you. While Brilliance was nice, I do prefer the larger ships now. And I’m not the biggest fan of the Western Caribbean. The waters can get quite choppy.
  13. What a great problem to have! I’m very close to Tampa and Port Canaveral, so spoiled being that close! Good luck on getting into the retirement home.
  14. How many Star Class suites are there? On Oasis, for example, I counted about 11 (Ultimate, Grand and Owners Panoramic suites, 2 Star Loft Suites and 6 2br Aquatheater suites). Is it the same for Allure and the newer ships? We currently have a Star Loft booked on Allure but I can’t see the others. I’m in the process of booking Utopia, although I wish there were longer voyages on that one.
  15. You just won’t let it go, will you? Geesh! To the OP, good on you for trying to find the rightful owner. Hopefully the ring makes it back home. If it was my ring, I’d be forever grateful.
  16. Ours went up $40 for our November 2024 (2 people in a suite) cruise but did not get a notice for our February 2024 cruise (3 people in a suite) yet. Both itineraries are going to Coco Cay. While I’m not thrilled with the increase, for us it’s not the end of the world given how much we’re paying for the suites.
  17. This map is very helpful as it clearly outlines where the tram does and does not go (great for some of the seniors traveling with us).
  18. @Toddcan, of the two, which cabana/area did you prefer and why? Thanks.
  19. We did it a few cruises ago and really liked it. There was a lot of food, you can’t finish it! Thank goodness for the fridge in the room.
