  1. Thank you for the heads-up on the OP. I did a little "research" and I get your drift. From now on, I will read the whole thread! 🙂
  2. I have not read every post in this thread, so not sure if this has been mentioned. If so, I apologize. Yes, the food was better years ago...higher quality as cb at sea says. The other thing that was higher was the price of a cruise !
  3. Hi Bill...Glad to see your post! Hope you and Rita are well. Laura
  4. We loved listening to the "Rosario Strings", mostly in the Centrum before dinner. This was many years ago. Sometimes they would stroll through the dining room during dinner and play requests. I think there may have been more than one group who used this name, but all with similar format . They could play pretty much anything on their violins and other "strings". Anyone else remember them? 🙂
  5. Also, someone who has no passport (by her own admission) and only cruises to the Caribbean, obviously has never taken a transatlantic voyage of any sort and should not be offering any advice on them. Personal experience, CB.
  6. Pay no attention toCB. This "advice" is just another of her constantly repeated stock posts. Her favorite line is "you're a family now, so that's how you vacation" She doesn't get it that some vacation options are more suited (or not) to young children. Speaking from personal experience, our grand-daughter accompanied us and the rest of the family on a cruise at about 20 months, and my daughter said "never again". It all depends on the child and the family make-up. I hope whatever you choose results in a wonderful vacation for all. 🙂
  7. I hope mr. "luxury lines" doesn't ever get caught in the rain...his nose is so far up in the air, he'll drown ! (evil grin emoji here!)
  8. Thanks for that info. We have not stayed there for a while, but the buffet was included at that time when booking with VT. I think buffets everywhere may be gone for quite a while! 🙂
  9. I say ditto to this post. We have stayed here at least 4 times and book through Valutrips. Rooms are large clean and comfortable and they used to offer a complimentary breakfast buffet (not sure if this is still the case).
  10. I am pretty sure that he is not with Royal any more. Irky from Turkey. He was the best trivia guy ever! Funny, personable...a real delight. 🙂
  11. This is the best thread !!! Thank you Ukigirl for your humor and creativity. You made me laugh and really brightened up my day. Also, your "waiter" is very handsome!!! My best wishes to you and the "waiter" for good health and happiness as we all get through this. 🙂
  12. Our grandson was supposed to leave yesterday (3/14) on Navigator (RCCL). Since cruise was cancelled, he was offered 100% refund OR 125% FCC.
  13. You are right if it comes to being quarantined . Two weeks in a small space with a toddler could be "difficult" to say the least !!! 🙂
  14. FYI...very young children are at very low risk for corona. 🙂
