  1. I'd try anyway. Never know.
  2. We're likely to bail from our March and July cruises if the situation doesn't improve. And stay at home. Hate to be the contrarian but I think the stock will continue its downward trend for a good while. So many others have to be in the same, precarious "to go or not to go" position. For us, the risk isn't worth it as we have work and family responsibilities to maintain. And those who are older and retired are at greater risk according to reports.
  3. Our March 2020 sailing on Adventure OTS (8 night Eastern Caribbean) has been sold out for many weeks. There's suddenly availability in all categories. It looks as if passengers are bailing. We will either upgrade (if prices come down) or bail (if the coronavirus situation becomes more dire).
  4. A group of apes is called a shrewdness. A group of owls is called a parliament. and a group of diamonds is technically called a... cluster.
  5. Call Royal Caribbean or your TA. Explain your situation and ask if they can assist in finding you back-to-back cabins available on both sailings. It's a bit of a hassle and somewhat stressful (but not a whole lot) to have to switch cabins.
  6. Been on Liberty many times. Definitely Chops! My usual order there is: Forest mushroom soup, colossal shrimp cocktail, black pepper bacon, 9 ounce filet, a pat of horseradish, asparagus, mashed potatoes, and mushrooms. And dessert. Be sure to skip lunch that day.
  7. Chatted with the ship's environmental officer while on Explorer. She stated she was aware of the phenomenon and advised against it due to ducks being made of plastic. She also stated Royal will be rolling out updates to their program which will include communications discouraging these ducks.
  8. Depending on the sailing, they have shorter-duration passes, i.e. 3 classes, 5 classes, or ultimate. The ultimate pass also includes a body composition test.
  9. Bulleit (orange label) was on sale on our recent December 2019 Explorer sailing. $19.99 for 1L. Sans tax.
  10. St Kitts. Take the local ferry over to Nevis in the morning. Walk to Pinney's Beach. St Thomas. Take the local ferry over to St Johns and take a taxi/bus to Trunk Bay. CocoCay. Grab any chair on the beach. Snorkeling isn't too great here.
  11. Definitely Uber or Lyft as it's both the cheapest and fastest way. There's also presently a 15% off promotion code for those using Lyft from IAH (Bush) airport. (Saw it on the app after landing at IAH last week).
  12. For me, fancy usually means the newer ships, i.e. Oasis or Anthem. Or any ship in the Oasis or Quantum class. These ships have more "glitz" and attract an upscale clientele. If you pay attention to the ups and downs of prices, you might be able to snag a nice balcony for a decent price. YMMV.

  14. We recently cruised Explorer from Miami. Scheduled 7:00 self-assist debarkation started late and at 7:35. We were in a taxi by 7:50 and at MIA airport by 8:05 am. You may not want to use Uber/Lyft. We noticed surge pricing and long wait times. Given there was no taxi queue, we decided to get in one. Our taxi fare also wound up being cheaper than the quoted, surge price.
