  1. Blackjack is my recommendation. 1. Download a free Blackjack app onto your phone. 2. Print out a basic Blackjack strategy chart (you can find one via Google). 3. Play for hours on your phone and while following the rules of the chart. 4. Attend a free beginners blackjack session prior to casino opening. Hint: You can bring the basic blackjack strategy chart with you to your table.
  2. Sailing AQ for the first time next week. Is room service included with AQ? Can one order via the X app? Am accustomed to RCL where complimentary breakfast room service is limited.
  3. Given the OP hasn't done Oasis class yet, I'd recommend the 8-nighter Allure. She's still a beautiful ship despite being slightly dated. And it's an additional day/night at sea. I'm also not a fan of the "enclosed" CocoCay or Labadee destinations.
  4. Was Persian Gardens open and accessible to Aqua pax? Were the steam and sauna spaces available for use? Thanks for your detailed review.
  5. Yes, Vision has separate sauna and steam in the locker rooms.
  6. Received noticed that my September 2022 Rhapsody cruise was cancelled. As per RCL, "Our original plan for Rhapsody of the Seas was to begin offering sailings departing from Tampa beginning April 2022. However, we've decided that Rhapsody of the Seas will now offer sailings in Europe for the Summer 2022 season instead." Relevant email text below: Dear Guest, We have an important update to your September 2022 Rhapsody of the Seas cruise. As we continue to review and analyze our itinerary plans, we've been repositioning some of our ships in anticipation of our re
  7. We did something similar in Port Everglades a few years ago. We read reports that Royal will put you onto a crew shuttle that goes from ship to ship. Royal, to our surprise, put us onto a passenger shuttle that went from Harmony, to FLL airport and then to Adventure. Total travel time of 1.5 hours. We wished we took a cab instead.
  8. We had Patti LaBelle, Chita Rivera, Charo, Patti Lupone and Nikki Blonsky on RCL Navigator of the Seas out of Barcelona. July 2008. Memorable!
  9. We are on a August 2021 cruise that arrives into Piraeus at 5:00 am. Is it possible to be the first ones off the ship and at Athens (ATH) airport by 7:20-730 am? We are eyeing a 8:20 am intraEurope flight.
  10. Storage at 55 degrees might be ok. But full bodied Cabs really should be served at 16 and 18 degrees Celsius (61 – 65 degrees Fahrenheit). We love Caymus too and consider the Diamond 2 for 1 in Vintages to be one of the best RCL C&A perks.
  11. Be sure to visit downtown St Petersburg next time you visit! Have really grown to love it here. It's a San Diego - French Riveria - Brooklyn mash-up geographically.
  12. That's a good reminder. I also remember the Grandeur JS being essentially the size of a standard balcony. And as someone pointed out earlier, these sailings are port-intensive. Folks won't be in their rooms much.
  13. That is a chunk of money saved. Congrats!
  14. Sorry to hear about the cancelled B2B. We "have" a B2B (7 nights each) on Brilliance out of Tampa for August 2021. We are doubtful that they will sail as planned. We've booked the Celebrity Millennium out of SXM as a backup.
