  1. On our Explorer of the Seas Cruise on Dec 13-22 a group of Doctor Who fans and celebrity guests were on board. We weren't a part of that group, but ran into some of them on the boat.
  2. we really liked te amo beach for snorkeling.
  3. It has the new policy about carry on here: https://www.royalcaribbean.com/faq/questions/food-drink-onboard-policy
  4. RCLcruiser2012, being on an internal or external railing is not allowed on the boat. So quite similar, actually.
  5. Also, I don't know how many people realize that using that other site it not a good idea as it lets people know when you will be on vacation. Much more privacy here.
  6. The roll call used to be there right when I went in on the app. Now I find it hard to get to the roll call unless I sign up for notifications. I still go to it, but I definitely miss the ease of the app.
  7. If I'm reading it correctly, this doesn't say access to the equivalent of the thermal suite like the Carnival and Celebrity rooms include?
  8. Thanks for the helpful info as we will be on explorer in December. I like mint so glad to know I can find it.
  9. Only you can decide whether the money is worth it to you but it sounds like you would like to keep what you have. Personally I'd take the extra money and make my way to other areas on the ship to sit out at the times you have mentioned. We've loved having a balcony but when we don't we've found it works almost as well to go to some quiet areas in the morning and evenings to sit out on deck. They obviously are not as convenient as just opening the balcony door, but there are quiet areas before people are up and about, and while they are at dinner or a show.
  10. Yes. Confirmed. The time would be inside the parentheses otherwise
  11. We also like the (paid) thermal suite that have saunas but the ones in there often aren't as hot as dry heat as the more traditional (free) saunas.
  12. It is harder to find sauna/steam info---it usually isn't marked on the deck plans or on the info for the ship (although sometimes the paid thermal suite is marketed by the cruise line). We purchase a refundable rate so that if a ship had a sauna but got rid of it then we have options. As Bob says, it is hard to tell what will happen with future dry docks. Also, web searches are challenging when some have had them in the past but no longer do.... From the other board I mentioned, combined with other research (someone please correct any errors!) Still free steam and sauna as of now, but dry docks are coming for some of these: Adventure of the sea Brilliance of the Seas Explorer of the Seas Freedom of the Seas Grandeur fo the Seas Independence of the Seas Jewel of the Seas Mariner of the Seas Radiance of the Seas Rhapsody of the Seas Vision of the Seas Questionable Voyager of the Seas (dry dock soon) No sauna: Enchantment of the Seas (removed a while back) Navigator of the Seas (only a steam for those who booked treatments) Splendor (only a complimentary steam) We are wiling to pay for the sauna so I'm most interested in which boat have no sauna at all.
  13. I was researching this last night and there is a separate general cc forum that talks about men’s sauna and steam. It matched what Bob said that navigator is the only one people know of so far where it had been free but has been removed. See the August 1st post on men’s spa facilities. It lists which are free and which are for pay. I wish royal had a place we could check for this.
