  1. Thank you, maybe I’ll get something today.
  2. I remember those days and they still exist every once in awhile. We got a free cruise in July on the Empress.
  3. We are sailing on the Harmony 11.10 and had a grand suite, received notice today that our RoyalUp bid was accepted 🙂 We are now in a 1br AquaTheatre Suite - can someone share the differences between the two - other than obvious location. Are there different suite perks between the two types of cabins? We have sailed in GS several times so I am familiar with the perks for a GS, just wondering about the ATS.... Our cabin was updated immediately however our luggage tags still show the old suite on deck 8 - is there a way to fix this? This is our daughters wedding as well (getting married on the ship) so this is really special cruise 😉
  4. Thanks - I am going to try the champagne, we had a call with the wedding planner and she said as long as we all checked in at the same time, we are using a bus for transportation, she didn't see an issue with it. I am going to keep them in the case they come in, that will be easy for scanning. If they say no, I'll blame it on the coordinator 🙂 Tell me a bit more about the photo booth - love the idea. Who organized it? Was it through Royal? Thanks for the tip on the dessert bar, I think we may go with this
  5. Hi - thank you for posting all this great info, our daughter is getting married on Harmony in November. I know its a different ship but same class and still got a feel for te day. We are doing gift bags for everyone sailing - we have 16 cabins, so a nice group. Royal said they will deliver them fro 2.00 per cabin. Did you do this? We are thinking about putting a bottle of champagne in the bags, wondering if that is allowed? I know that everyone over the age of 21 is allowed on bottle of wine so we are going to count the champagne as that. I have two volunteers who will put the bags together as soon as we board the ship (figure that is easier to gt on) Love the dessert bar - can you tell me what type of desserts? Thanks
  6. Thanks again for the helpful tips 🙂
  7. Thanks so much for your feedback (on both threads) - I am excited to visit STJ 🙂
  8. We will be in St Thomas on RCCL in two weeks - I have always wanted to go to St John and spend some time at Trunk Bay but I am a little nervous about doing a ferry on our own. Can you explain how the RCCL excursion works - is it a set time for pick-up? Do they give you enough time to go to Trunk Bay and enjoy the beach? I don't want to shop if that's all the time they allow, we really want the beach and beverages 🙂 Thanks
  9. can I ask if you have done this - we have been to St Thomas many times and I have always wanted to go over to St John but really try to play it safe, doing the ferry on our own makes me nervous. We did notice that RCCL offers St John on your own - do you know how it works. Thanks
  10. Loving the review - can you tell me what the changes are in the ultimate dining package and the new? We booked the ultimate before the change. Why did you go to Jamies to book your dining, is this the only place or can we use concierge?
  11. Thanks so much - we will be enjoying our day in St Thomas :)
  12. We have not been to Sapphire Beach in a few years, can you tell me if they are still allowing day visitors, there was a bar there to have some beverages and lunch is that still an option. Do you know how much the taxi would be? Thanks
  13. We just booked a last minute trip on the Empress in July - we are thinking of just grabbing a taxi and heading to a beach to relax, swim have some beverages/lunch. Anyone have any suggestions on a nice beach/bar area Thanks
  14. Thanks - not sure we would go with it - I do love the ones for Disney though......good to know its optional
  15. Loving the review - we are sailing November, our daughter is getting married on the ship. We are excited to try the Harmony, loved the Allure. Can you explain the WOW bands again, do you have to use them or is it an option. If we want to keep our cards can we?
  16. Disappointed with the review of 150. It was our favorite last cruise; we’ll try it again next week but may not go back for the 2nd reservation. Oh oh and Nassau spot on “the most over visited port”
  17. Love the start of this - we are sailing on the 13th only in a grand suite but we are sailing the harmony in November and are interested in hearing about star class experience. Enjoy!

    Water Taxi

    Thank you how was the beach, clean? Do you remember the cost for the water taxi
  19. We will be in St Maarten in a few weeks. Last time we were there we did a tour with Bernards, so we are thinking of something different. Has anyone used the water taxi, can you give any advice. How was the beach on that side, how are the restaurants/bars? We are hoping for an easy beach day with some lunch and a few beverages...... Can anyone offer any advice - thanks
  20. I usually inform the agent when I book and its also in my profile with RCCL. Once on board, to be safe, I also let the concierge and the waiters know
  21. Too long of a walk and bridges to navigate, you could Uber to the gate area and then walk in. It’s a nice park/beach. Uber wouldn’t be more than 10.00
