  1. Just back from another Liberty of the Seas cruise and this time we were told that the hard ice cream in dining room does have egg in it. I guess they changed providers? The sherbet does not have egg. Also, all the pasta on the ship has egg in it according to head waiter. All the pizza, too. Kids camp dinner at first told us they could not accommodate allergy (pizza is main food every night) but I I asked a second time and they said they can substitute food if you tell them an alternative.
  2. On several competing cruise line's websites, you can easily see the price for 4 people in a cabin at the top level search. Is there a way to do this on the Royal Caribbean website that I am missing? For example, if I want to search for cruises in November on certain ships, when it shows the itineraries, I can also select the number of people per cabin and see the pricing for those types of cabins. On Royal Caribbean's website, I cannot see a way to do this. All the pricing is assuming 2 per cabin. To see the pricing for 4 in a cabin, you have to select each itinerary, select the number of passengers and room type, etc., through many clicks. The ability to see the pricing for 4 to a cabin at the top level is important, because often the cheapest cruise for 2/cabin is not the cheapest for 4/cabin, due to availability of cabin categories and such. The two big travel agent websites I've used also do not provide this search capability. I know RCI seems to have a horrible IT department, but perhaps this time I am missing something? Thank you
  3. When we were there in May 2019, they were very strict that the lounge chair were only for people ordering food and or drink. The pool itself was free. However, there isn’t really anywhere to leave your stuff if you don’t have a chair.
  4. Pool was nice at port, but the day we were there they were very strict that you can only use the lounge chairs while consuming food and or drink.
  5. When we were there in May, they were very clear and strict about the lounge chairs only being available to people while buying food and drinks. We were there early in the morning and there were almost no people by the pool, and the place did not offer any coffee drinks. Later in the day, they made several loud announcements about the lounge chairs being only for use while consuming, and a server shooed away my wife with our toddler when she asked to order coffee. I think the cheapest drink was well over $10 but I’m not sure. I had read on these forums that the lounge chairs were free and planned our day around that, but that was obviously incorrect information. Maybe some days they are lenient, but not the day we were there. The pool is free though!
  6. With regard to the 9277-9294 rooms, is there any deck noise from above? Specifically looking at 9280, it seems it is under a high terraced step, so something is presumably between the actual deck space with loungers and the room? We had a cabin under an open deck on a Princess ship once, and the cleaning or stacking of deck chairs at 5am always woke up my wife (though I never heard it!).
  7. I don't doubt (though can't confirm) the accuracy of WisconsinFan's definitions for some official culinary protocol. However, I will note that Ben and Jerry's calls their produce "ice cream" even though most every flavor has at least egg yolk in it, e.g. https://www.benjerry.com/flavors/cherry-garcia-ice-cream CREAM, SKIM MILK, LIQUID SUGAR (SUGAR, WATER), WATER, CHERRIES, SUGAR, EGG YOLKS, COCONUT OIL, COCOA (PROCESSED WITH ALKALI), FRUIT AND VEGETABLE CONCENTRATES (COLOR), COCOA POWDER, GUAR GUM, NATURAL FLAVORS, LEMON JUICE CONCENTRATE, CARRAGEENAN, MILK FAT, SOY LECITHIN.
  8. Update after our cruise. The softserve had no egg, as reported above. The main dining room scooped ice cream also had no egg. In the main dining room, the chef was also making egg-free special desserts every night. Unfortunately, our waiter (who was awful) never told us. On the fourth night, the head waiter or whoever higher up came by and asked how things were going, especially with the allergy. He asked how the special desserts were, and we had no idea what he was talking about! Anyway, bottom line, on our cruise, the ice cream (not Ben & Jerrys) was fine, and they were making egg-free desserts. I encourage anyone to speak up, ask questions, and see what they can do or are already doing!
  9. Headed on Liberty of the Seas next weekend. Does anyone know if there are eggs in the ice cream? My 3yo daughter was recently diagnosed with a minor egg allergy, and since she won’t be able to have various baked goods (likely) I was reminding her how much ice cream she ate on our cruise last year. Then I remember some ice cream has eggs in it. We will definitely check on board, but was thinking I better start easing her out of her ice cream dream to avoid seven days of crying if there are eggs in the ice cream! thank you
  10. For over a week, I have been unable to access the boards at all with Chrome. I get the message " Bad Request Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of a request header field exceeds server limit. " I also have issues on my iPhone using Safari. Things are very slow and the "activity" links don't work. The work for me on my desktop with Firefox.
  11. The itineraries do have different ports. Mahogany Bay in Roatan for Carnival is very convenient. Costa Maya vs. Belize is more convenient which is usually only the RCL but a few Carnival cruises. I’ve heard the Jamaica ports have different plus/minuses. Liberty has a small splash area for kids in diapers. Not sure that was mentioned. Already mentioned was difference in kids programs. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  12. I’m not in a position to experience this, but it sounds just like the internet and cable companies. Best deals are to lure in new customers. Loyal customers foot the bill. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  13. Thanks for all of the information. Is there any part of the "beach" where a 3-year-old could dig in the sand? One post mentioned it was hard packed. Is it at least "sandbox-like" or better? Is there any access to the sandy area north of the pier (not by the dolphin thing)? Thank you.
