  1. I feel dress is same on Mediterranean cruises as others on Royal Caribbean. No suit is necessary for men in main dining. I have found that to true on dressier nights also. Nice shirt is sufficient. As for tours, the royal excursions do seem high. Look for info under the ports of call or on TripAdvisor to decide if you want to do it your own or if a tour is better. we did this cruise in November some years ago and maybe a light jacket is that was needed. check the Rome boards for hotel info.

  2. We did this a few years ago. Your luggage travels on the bus with you. It was a bit chilly that day but enjoyed it. Didn’t see much wildlife though.
  3. Another in favor of Spain Day tours. We did their tour to Alhambra. Early start but so worth it. We also did one to Montserrat when we left ship in Barcelona.
  4. About building a new cruise port - how long has the flood gate issue been going! Still haven’t gotten that working. Some say due to Italian bureaucracy.
  5. On our last time cruising prior to COVID, there was some issue departing ship in Miami. Walkoffs did not begin until 8:30 am. Our scheduled 8:15 departure got us off ship at 9:30. Fortunately, we had a noon flight. First time we had been delayed like that.
  6. Was looking at those for an edge cruise. Would be interested in photos and review after your cruise.
  7. We bought this for our cruise on Brilliance. We are Diamond (thru Celebrity status) and did not know the Diamond Lounge has complimentary coffee (Lattes also) that you make yourself. Had not been on Royal for quite a while. Took 2 punches for most coffees at the cafe. Was not that great IMO. Did not have a beverage package. We are sailing again in April/May on Royal and will enjoy the coffee in the Diamond Lounge - hoping it will be open for self serve along with our complimentary drinks.
  8. In over 20 cruises, never sailed in a suite but would like to try it. Have to have at least a veranda.. We booked on Royal Caribbean Odyssey in a JR Suite for next April as cost was low. But, does not come with perks so to me it is just a larger cabin.
  9. It’s seems Venice got what it wanted but to the nth degree. After visiting Venice via cruise a few times, we knew we wanted to stay a few days which we did a few years ago. Just discussing with my husband that I want to go back and vacation in Venice.
  10. We are new shareholders. Filled in form for various upcoming cruises and received replies/OBC quickly. One rejected as original booking date was prior to June 2019 due to early booking and lift and shift. Every little bit helps. gail
  11. Last time we sailed - December, 2019, our cruise on Silhouette was moved from Ft. lauderdale to Miami. Could happen again!
  12. I sure hope it happens. I booked for December, 2021 out of Miami. If you have concerns, pay as late as you can to still take advantage of the Card bonus.
  13. We did Alaska starting on May 22 a few years back and had wonderfully warm weather and clear skies except for morning in Ketchikan. Alaska many be one of the places you and your son would find a balcony enjoyable. We saw ice floes and other sites from our balcony. Also a lot of daytime hours to spend outside. We sailed on the silhouette that time. Gail
