  1. Thanks. When I sailed the Jewel I had W13 inside the Schooner Bar.
  2. Anyone know where muster station U15 is on Serenade of the Seas? Thanks
  3. Thanks southendcruiser, this is what I was worried about. I think they also did a Coast Guard inspection on the Oasis upon her return to the US. I remember getting texts and phone calls from Royal Caribbean a couple days before the cruise to not arrive early to Port Everglades. I arrived at Port Everglades after hotel check-out as planned. Although I had to sit for a long time, at least I got a seat and boarded the ship as soon as possible. Last October on Norwegian Escape in New York she was delayed arriving due to a storm in New York the day before and then had a Coast Guard inspection. I had just ran 5 miles through Central Park in a race and was waiting in line to check-in when the terminal became full. Standing in the same spot for a couple hours was not fun as they stopped the check-in. I could see the crew muster drill with the Coast Guard take place from inside the terminal. At least the Serenade is much smaller compared to Oasis and Escape. As for The Key, I think I'll pass this time. The carry-on luggage delivery to stateroom was the one perk that would influence my decision. If there's a good chance boarding will be delayed to 1PM or later and staterooms open at 1:30PM, then this benefit would be lost, and possibly lunch at Chops Grille.
  4. Thanks Carol! Started online check-in and the earliest option to arrive is Noon. I plan on arriving by 10AM and thinking about purchasing The Key in part to enjoy lunch at Chops and have my carry-on luggage delivered to my stateroom. If embarkation was delayed, then I'd lose out on the luggage delivery. At this point it all comes down to whether or not I want an internet package. Either way the ship will go Vroom....
  5. How long does Serenade of the Seas (or Radiance class ship) take clear when arriving to Boston for the first time following a Transatlantic sailing? I'm on the Sept. 10 5-night cruise to Bermuda. 5 years ago I was on the first Oasis cruise from Fort Lauderdale following her transatlantic sailing from drydock. Took a long time to clear ship and didn't get to board until well after 3pm. Since Serenade is a much smaller ship, I'm hoping it doesn't take that long to clear. Thanks
