  1. We are currently on the royal heading to LA. Yes boarding will be probably late due to the ship first artiving in the Us after south america. We know all thecrew have to go thru customs as well as all the guests. Expecting public health and probablycoast guard. We are staying on for the first mexican cruise and have to change cabins. Going from guest entertainer to a guest. The ship is amazing. Entertainment top notch. If you want to see the early show yeah come early but we have had no issue showing up for last show a few min earlier and getting a seat. Enjoy
  2. We are currently on deck 7 way forward, and we have had some bumpy rides on this south american journey but have not noticed much difference inthis cabin as many i have had all over the ship. Biggest noise is anchor drop. That wakes me every time
  3. Thankfully we made it into stanley today. Beautiful day. Hundreds of penguins were seen on the port side at Gypsy cove from the ship as we sailed in. Then again as we anchored tons of penguins could be seen in the water from deck 7 outside. I have never seen so many surrounding the ship. Was a great site for those that could not get off the ship due to tendering and mobility issues. On our way to the horn...

  5. that white area adjacent to your cabin is crew area with two staircases and one elevator. I use it often to access my guest entertainers cabin on deck 7. It is on every deck. There is also duck work and electrical stuff there. I believe you are the first cabin above the stage. The rigging/lighting goes WAY up and the sound carries. We had a similar cabin on the Star once on Aloha deck I believe. Yes it was definitely noticeable.
  6. He went on vacation. Matt arrived back jan 12. I love Matt, i find him to be one of the best CD. You need an energetic CD and matt provides this. It is clear by how many attend his activities that he is quite popular.
  7. I am on board too. Port everglades states we are at 4, but crew on board say the royal wont fit at pier 4 so we will be at 21. Guess we will have to wait and see. Yes shuttle will be avail. I recommend one person stay with bags while one takes shuttle. Then drive over and pick person up.
  8. Click on my blog in my signature a click on label for coquimbo at bottom of page
  9. Was on the crown for a month in nov. Sabatinis still is using the old menu. We loved the new menu on the caribbean so we opted to not go this time. Great thorough review. We had a bit diffeent experience in some areas and similar issues in others. Personallyni too prefer the bigger ships, especially royal and regal
  10. the walk from San Martin cruise port to Paracas would take over 3 hours each way. Take a taxi
  11. On the crown in nov on 14 day then 10 day, booked as 2 separate cruises and got minutes rolled over.
  12. the few times we have been here, we have done a variety of things. It is easy to take a taxi right from the pier to downtown La Serena for a nominal fee. Make sure to confirm price before you get in taxi. Easy to find taxi to go back too. One time we just walked around Coquimbo and had a meal. One time we took an excellent tour to the Elqui Valley and wine tour - independent.
  13. As non Argentinians you can not buy your tickets in advance. You can just show up and get tickets once you arrive. Make sure to also buy Park Entrance tickets (sold separately). Note the train is only one way and you are dropped off within the park. I recommend a tour that includes the train and park.
  14. I was on too. We boarded nov 3 for trans atlantic then stayed for the ten day Caribbean. I wrote an entire detailed review in my blog ....link is in signature. Glad to see sanctuary got better. We were there the first sea day but seemed to be ignored. I think they needed more staff. Crew are amazing on board.
