  1. Quest is one of my favourite activites during a sailing and it hasn't become boring to me yet. My next sailings are on the Navigator and Explorer and I expect both to be good.
  2. Looking for 2 sailings ... 1) May TA from Florida to Spain, preferably on a big ship, or 2) Sept 10 night Greek Islands cruise from Italy, which is similar to my bucket list trip on Rhapsody in 2016. 2021 is definitely when I head back to Europe, preferably Spain and Portugal!
  3. I've heard it was my smile, laugh and the fact that I was traveling alone why they remembered me - it was about 3 years in between sailings, which was amazing.
  4. I'll be going on the Explorer for the 3rd time in November and have heard reports of the ship looking rough. However, it's a 9 night Southern Caribbean sailing so I'll be fine!
  5. Enjoy the package - I have the 3 night dining package booked for my Navigator sailing. I wanted to try all the new restaurants.
  6. I'm doing a S2S in November with no days in between - Navigator ends the day Explorer starts from the Port of Miami. Do I have to leave the port? I'm assuming it will be a different terminal.
  7. I'm also waiting for May 2021 to become available as I'd like to book a TA from Florida to Spain.
  8. Could only get through the first 15 pages of this thread. I booked the drink package at the $23 CDN/day pricing. I'm not even sure if I'm going on the sailing but wanted to secure the package in case. I got the confirmation shortly after booking it. I've had 2 such instances happen to me with 2 different outcomes. On one of my Adventure sailings, JS cabins didn't have single supplement pricing. A ton of people on the roll call upgraded to JS cabins and the error was never corrected, so it was a great sailing. Another time, Liberty of the Seas out of Galveston was priced around $400 for balcony and suite cabins. Myself and a bunch of friends booked but got an email a week later that the sailing pricing was incorrect. They cancelled our booking but provided us with a $50 OBC. I'm fine if they cancel it - it was an honest error - but it would be nice to get some type of compensation for it, even if it's the OBC.
  9. I'm doing a B2B in November - 4 night sailing in a suite and then a 9 night saiing in an inside cabin. I'll be doing both cruises solo. I will become Diamond Plus on my 2nd day of the 2nd cruise but realize I won't enjoy those benefits until my sailing next year. Looking forward to it!
  10. With the adult comedy shows I've gone to, I personally found it wasn't adult enough. It was almost as if they were afraid to go too raunchy. Either way, I usually stay for the entire show as they are entertaining.
  11. I don't know why I came to look at these pictures again 😞 I got a great price for my 9 night sailing and flights are already booked so there's no option to change. But I'm in an inside cabin - if I was in a balcony, I'd just live there throughout the day. How is deck 5 please? That's usually my reading and relaxation area throughout the day. Also, how is the Solarium?
  12. This is worrisome - I'm booked on Explorer for November. This will be my 3rd time on there and this is not what I'm expecting!
  13. I haven't had much luck with price drops lately as I book early being a solo cruiser. However, I would call in for pretty much any amount. The least amount I've called in for was $12 but they realized they forgot to apply my balcony discount, so I actually ended up getting a further reduction.
  14. My Happy Hour routine is to go to the lounge for the first 2 hours and consume 2 - 3 drinks with appetizers. Then I'll leave and consume the 3 drinks on my card over the last 90 minutes, usually bringing my last 2 drinks to dinner with me. I've been fortuante enough to get frozen drinks when I go to the pool bar as part of my 3 drinks. Hoping I can keep that up during my future sailings.
