  1. I know it wasn't full menu. If I remember correctly, we received a couple of appetizers (including the guac) and your choice of one or two of the entrees - but it's been quite a while, so I may be misremembering. Sorry!
  2. Depending on where you're renting from, you may consider spending the little bit of money for a cab to pick up your car. For my family (admittedly out of shape), the hill/mountain that we had to go up and down to get to Enterprise was a rough start to our day. The car rental was absolutely worth it though. We went the other direction out to St. Andrews. No caves, but we could walk on the sea floor and got some stunning views of difference in the Bay with the tide going out.
  3. We thought the Guacamole/margarita tasting (under activities in the cruise planner) was a better deal than the dinner. That price includes a drink!
  4. Hello! I'm just starting to plan for my cruise next year out of Montreal, but I wanted to thank you for the wealth of information!!
  5. You may mention this later (I'm only on page 5 right now), but this is the BEST spot for stargazing at night! There are hardly any lights, so you can see a million stars.
  6. Make sure you're not over or under Boleros. I was over them on my cruise and I could understand the words of the songs in my stateroom. I will say, the band was great! But it was too loud in my stateroom. Loved the Empress and am looking forward to sailing on her next year!
  7. And I would echo with, never book a cabin directly over Boleros, either. And after that experience, it goes hand in hand with my, never book an inside gty stateroom again, rule! That said - the sound quality of the amplification system in Boleros is impressive! :-)
  8. We did this in January and did not get any souvenir items. I have to admit, we laughed when we booked it - we're from Texas and know how to make guac. However, the food/beverage inclusions made this a less expensive option to full dinner at Sabor. We had a great time - enjoyed the food and drinks!
  9. Hi! From what I've been able to piece together, the private journey is more expensive, but I'll get a more personalized tour experience. Although with the private car, that still does allow for some personalization on the tour. I think I'm going to have to really chew on this...
  10. Sure! Here’s the Private Journeys link: http://www.royalcaribbean.com/privatejourneys/request/ And here’s the details from the private car excursion through Royal: HIGHLIGHTS Customized Guided Tour: Choose your own itinerary and explore the city on a private small-group tour alongside an English-speaking guide. Independent Exploration: Visit distinguished museums, see stunning Russian Orthodox cathedrals, shop for souvenirs, or enjoy a tasty lunch (time permitting). Private Escort: Sightsee around the city as you ride in the comfort of a private vehicle. Thanks!
  11. Hello! I’ve been researching excursions and have found both private car/van excursions on the cruise planner and a separate link to Private Journeys, which honestly sounds like the same thing as the excursions. Can someone help me understand the difference between them? If it helps, I’m looking to use one or the other in St Petersburg next year. Thanks! Michelle
  12. Enjoying the blog! I'm taking a Baltic on Jewel next year and really enjoying the insights!
  13. Without knowing when you're going, the issue may be caused by Bar Harbor being a tender port...
  14. We did the Mexican Cooking, Tasting and Beach Break in January and it is hands-down the best excursion I've taken in the Caribbean! The staff is fantastic, we cooked a delicious 3-course meal and the beach was beautiful (although a bit crowded).
  15. Try to ride Northstar at Sunset - SPECTACULAR views!!
