  1. I saw a few taxis but I think they were pre booked. It might be worth checking if Uber work in the area or finding a local firm you could call before debarkation.
  2. 5 hour journey home but made it in one piece. We got off the ship at 6.15am with our own luggage and on the road at 6.40am. We we both had a great cruise, regardless of the little niggles here and there. Our favourite cruise line is still Celebrity but Royal Caribbean is up there as well. Those of you who are going on soon, have a great time. All the best ian
  3. Last day before home. Plenty going on on the ship. 20C outside, sunny but blustery on the outside decks. Formal last night was ok but lacked atmosphere due to the MDR being less the half full. There was a parade and an individual birthday cake for each couple for RCCL 50th birthday. Time to pack and get ready for the final evening. Thanks for reading and contributing everyone. All the best ian
  4. I think you will need photos and set sail passes completed for everyone. If you go to your set sail pass and then swipe left you should be able to get to the others if they are on the same booking. Alternatively complete on the website. Enjoy your cruise.
  5. Im with you, I much prefer the later theatre time after late seating. The show lasts about 45 - 50 minutes. We managed a drink in the Diamond lounge before 8.30pm meal.
  6. When we arrived there was a sign for Pinnacle, Suite and Expedited boarding. Go to this area and you will be asked a few questions and sent to security. Your sea pass cards will be outside your room. Not or sure how busy it,will be when you arrive.
  7. Cadiz yesterday. We like Cadiz, it is such an easy town to walk around with a decent beach and shopping/market area. At sea today, calm seas and 20C. Towels were on the sun beds nice and early again 😂. It always amazes me the lengths people go to to get a sun bed. Now that we are coming to the end of the cruise i’ll try to sum up with some tips, some of which I have already covered. If you can, complete your sea pass info on the Royal App. It makes boarding a lot easier. The Windjammer can be like a cattle market at times. If you like to eat of there, whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner, try to work out the quieter times for your own sanity. Better still, use the dining room for breakfast every morning and lunch on sea days. Buffet breakfast on deck 3 and a la carte on deck 4. Tender ports, see my earlier post regarding this. Make time to see the sunsets. They are different every evening and never fail to impress. The shows are mainly 7pm for late seating and 9pm for early with a few exceptions. There have been a couple of adult comedy late shows at 10.45pm as well. Formal on this cruise was day 3, 10, 13. If if you enjoy your spa treatments then wait for the discounts in the 2nd week. The full body massage went from $169 to $99. Also, if you are Diamond and above you will get a $50 discount after day 3. The best tip of all, relax, enjoy and let go. It’s your cruise and even a mediocre cruise is better than a good day at work. i may not have time to get on tomorrow so if I don’t thank you for following and reading. If you have any further questions I will do my best to answer them. bye for now Ian
  8. No problem. The Cruise Director is Cuddy Cudworth. He’s been very good and does seminars throughout the cruise on ‘Monkey Mind Relaxation’. Well worth a visit.
  9. Not sure whether we actually docked in Gibraltar but there was another medical emergency during the night before Cadiz so maybe. The cruise has has been quite eventful with a number of medical emergencies, one passenger jumping overboard and being rescued before being put off in Gibraltar. Allegedly it was because he lost $17000 in the Casino but not sure how true that is. You know how the grapevine works on cruises. Then there was a fight among a large group of people (17 I heard) and they were also put of in Cagliari I think. I havent seen seen the seafood night mentioned to be honest. Where did you find the tracker?
  10. Cagliari yesterday. There was a free shuttle into town for those that wanted to do their own thing. Unfortunately I feel that the food quality in the main dining room has deteriorated as we get to the latter end of the cruise. I had the New York Strip yesterday as there was nothing I fancied on the main menu, and although I like it medium rare , it was very tough and somewhat inedible. To be honest the last three nights in the main dining room has lacked menu variety and imagination and also quality of food served. It is a real shame as we enjoy our main dining room experience. At sea today and the sea is like a mill pond. It is warm but a little overcast. There are two performances of Grease tonight, the first at 5.45pm and the second at 8.45pm. There will also be a matinee performance on the last sea day. All the best Ian
  11. Do you mean the coffee drink cards? If so, I believe they were but I don’t know the cost I’m afraid.
  12. Naples today. I wanted to go to Pompeii but all tours were booked so I missed out. I’ll hopefully get there next year as we will be doing a similar itinerary on Anthem. The port is in the city so if you just want to get off and walk then it is easy to do so. The entertainment has been somewhat eclectic but I think that is the same for most cruises. The usual quizzes, bingo and lots of karaoke, some silent disco’s, pool parties and dance classes. The headliner shows have been interesting. There have been a lot of complaints about one particular show which was a comedic string quartet. As I said, eclectic. Many walked out, some stayed. I stayed and enjoyed the originality of the performance. Apparently it won an award at Edinburgh festival. Not everyone’s taste but full credit to Royal for trying something different. We’ve also had a juggler, a comedy/variety entertainer a swing vocal group and the usual music/dance shows. Tonight is a London West End singer. It is also formal night so I’d better sign off and get spruced up and the tax on. All the best Ian.
