  1. Does anyone know if the veranda wall can be opened to join the next cabin's veranda? We are in 10280 and 10273.
  2. We just did the Blue Lagoon Excursion through RC last weekend. There were 11 of us, ages 70-5 yrs old. We chose the Dolphin Encounter so the 5 yr old could join us and it was absolutely amazing. Very well done. We have also done 'swim with the dolphins' and we rank the encounter at Blue Lagoon more enjoyable. Lots of close up time with some incredible dolphins. We all loved it.
  3. We were at Senor Frogs last weekend. This is still the case, made at your table, and the Conch Salad was excellent. We had 5 kids with us and they had a great time as well. It's 'touristy', but still a lot of fun and close to the ships/port.
  4. We were there last weekend and had a ball. No damage from storm. Still clean and well kept. The Dolphin Encounter was amazing. There were 11 of us from 70 to 5 yrs old and all enjoyed immensely.
  5. I sure do. As it is, we only have 1 1/2 days. We are staying a couple blocks from Berlin Wall Memorial, which I think you referred to as the 1/2 mile or so of the wall. We plan on spending the afternoon there, the visitor center, walk the length of the mall to the Documentation Center at the other end. It sounds very informative. Then we have the entire next day. We considered the HoHo bus, but thought we would be able to fit more in with the private tour for the day. And the Wall Memorial by Checkpoint Charlie sounds interesting too. Thanks for both of your suggestions and opinions.
  6. I'm looking for opinions/advice on touring Berlin (adults only). I am trying to decide what to spend time at, since it will be limited, even on our private tour. So hoping those of you who have visited Berlin could weigh in. So far our must sees are the Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie and the Berlin Wall Memorial. Choice between the Wall Museum vs the DDR Museum? Is it worth a visit inside the Charlottenburg Palace, or just a walk around, or even just a drive by? Is it worth it to go to the Reichstag, up to the dome and viewing platform? Anything else I'm missing? Any help/opinions/suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks
  7. Everything is included...food, pools, kids pool area, toddler pool area, beaches. And if you bought the drink package, it is also included on the Island, using your seapass. What is not included is the Water Park, roughly in the middle of the Island, where all the slides are. You can look at RC website and they will list the slides etc that are inside the Water Park. The Island is not huge, very walkable with lots to do. We were there last weekend, weather was awful, cool and windy, so not crowded at all even thought there were 2 ships there. Very small lines at slides. But I'm sure due to the yucky weather.
  8. My 11 yr old grand daughter has many food allergies as well. This is her first cruise. Should we call ahead to find out the ingredients of the foods/meals or do it on a case by case basis at each meal?
  9. Loving your review. My DH and I are taking our 2 adult children, their spouses, and our 5 grandchildren (ages 12-5) on this 3 night cruise in Nov. for my DH birthday. We did buy the water park for our entire crew, planning on spending time their first thing in the am before it gets too crowded. So far, it sounds like the kids can enjoy the pool when we arrive and after dinner, the Ice show and the balloon drop before bed.
  10. I'm from Pittsburgh too! Moved to FL years ago. Did they accept Credit Cards for the umbrella rental and food/drink?
  11. I was on the Equinox 2 weeks ago, my 3rd time cruising on her. I don't really have much to add to what has already been reported. The ship looked great, Capt Kate was gracious and very much out and about. Staff was wonderful as always. We were in cabin 2152, an aft concierge cabin. There were new chairs on the balcony that recline, but no foot stools. This made reclining ridiculously uncomfortable. The table was small, about 14 inches round. It didn't even hold the tray for our coffee in the am. We asked for a larger table and our cabin stewart had one on our balcony that day. We didn't ask for foot stools. Just a note that the floor we were on had a completely covered balcony. The rest of the balconies in the aft (stern) of the ship are mostly uncovered. We had reservations (made weeks before we boarded) for select dining. We had the same table and the same waiters each night. While on board, they were constantly giving discounts for specialty dining. We ate at Murano's...2 for the price of one. It was excellent. We upgraded our included drink package to premium, as we like to try different wines. Never had to wait for service at any of the bars. Except maybe at the Martini Bar...it was always crowded there. Pool chairs were plentiful if you did not mind sitting away from the pool. There were the typical pool chair hogs, especially on sea days. I saw pool staff removing towels that did not have other belongs on the chairs. The Celebrity shows were the same as we had seen before...singers and dancers very talented and energetic. A couple comedians and singers that were entertaining. If anyone has any questions, I would be happy to try to help.
  12. Has anyone done the 3 night (weekend) cruise on the Navigator? I will be taking my grandchildren on their first cruise (ages 5 through 12) and am looking for any info that I can find about activities etc.. Thanks
  13. I was in 2152 in 2016 and loved it. I have booked the same cabin for this month to the Caribbean. We did not hear any noise from above...but we are early risers,. Occasionally we hear some music from the deck above, but we enjoy that. It is a bit of a walk, so we try very hard to make sure we have everything we need before leaving the cabin. It is covered a bit more than the cabins below., but not completely.
