  1. Anyone know what the Brilliance is doing November 5 - 9, 2020? Searched to see if chartered . . . but can't find anything. This would follow the Beantown cruise October 25 - November 5 - Boston to Tampa. There are cruises listed after November 9th.
  2. Yes - I did mean 2018!!!! Packing now for my 2019 cruise! I look forward to going back to Cuba.
  3. If the dog does not behave as a Service dog should - they should be removed at the next port and they can find their way home. On my last cruise, I did not enjoy the dog poop in front of the elevators or the jumping on other passengers. Some of the passengers that were jumped on were with walkers or canes. The dog even jumped at people from behind - all of which can be very dangerous. The dog was NOT aggressive - overly friendly (with diarrhea) and in my opinion, not a Service Dog. THINGS SERVICE DOGS IN PUBLIC SHOULD AND SHOULD NOT DO: "Jump, scratch, mouth or exhibit other “out of control” behavior. A Service Dog should NEVER exhibit rude, ill-mannered, untrained, or behaviors that are considered inappropriate or nuisances. They should NEVER infringe on other patron's personal space in a way that appears untrained or impolite." “The American Disabilities Act gives a person with a disability the right to be accompanied by his or her service animal but covered entities are not required to allow the animal to sit or be fed at the table.”
  4. MINOR DETAIL - you are actually eating macarons - and they look fabulous!!!
  5. I actually sent an email to Royal and asked if I could bring boxed wine. They said NO! Which doesn't make sense to me. I'd rather haul a box in my suitcase than bottles. And they do make small boxed wine. I think that rule needs to be changed!
  6. Concerning USB - did you look at the light fixture(s) next to the bed? Somewhat hidden -
  7. I suggested to Royal via email - they give Diamonds and above a deal on the coffee card - and the reply was - 'that's a good idea - I'll forward it'. It would be great if we could at least get the card at a better price to make up for no cappuccino machine or lounge. Something to make up for no lounge . . .
  8. Oops . . . . I was thinking balconies . . .
  9. Thanks for the OUTSTANDING review - and loads of information & pics. I will be on the Empress for 28 days later this fall! I'm really looking forward to it - and have a better idea of what to expect. I'm hoping I can pick up a drink card early on and use it throughout my cruises . . . .
  10. A cruise I was on had a quilting group. (not me) I saw they had sewing machines set up in the conference room - and they were sewing/quilting away! I know various professionals that need to keep up their education (ie doctors & dentists) can do continuing education on cruise ships.
  11. I am doing a B4B on the Empress in November (and I'm a Diamond soon to add a +) - so I am very interested in your review. Thanks for taking the time.
  12. Sorry to re-display on the fantastic photos - curious - how did you know there was a Diamond event on the first day? Information in your cabin?
  13. I'm doing a B2B on Anthem. Entertainment showed up at the same time for both cruises. Day 96 and Day 101 for the 2nd cruise. I'm still watching for iFly and North Star . . . assuming they'll be available sometime in the future for reservations.
  14. I've read about the Everyday Sunday Brunch - that includes Mimosa's and Bloody Marys. But I haven't seen anything recent. Anyone that has cruised on her the last few months - are they still doing this? Please give details. Also - no formal nights on the Empress?
