  1. On Symphony of the Seas in late January of 2020. Flying in to FLL as it is cheaper that Miami. Looking for options on how to get to Miami cruise port. We will be arriving the day before the cruise (!) so we are open to either staying in FLL or MIA. Looking to hear what others have done and how happy they were overall with that choice. Brian & Livvia
  2. Agreed with Bob. Typically 5 per person per day is the true break even point. (Depending on your tastes and level of whiskys and wine) YMMV. -Cheers-
  3. Our 7 day was cut short 1 day due top the Noro virus outbreak. Up to 5% of the ship was affected. We were fine and continued to cruise and party in normal fashion! Never seen so much cleaning for so long a time. Quite re-assuring actually. We docked at Jamaica but they did not let us off. So we headed off to Cozumel...but the Captain decided to not even go there as they would no let us off either...so back to port. RCCL will be refunding all passengers the full cruise booking amount. All shore excursion for Jamaica and Cozumel are refunded.
  4. I did send them an inquiry but have heard nothing as of yet... Anybody else on who is the headliner entertainment on Oasis of the Seas next week?
  5. Does anyone know for certain who the headliner entertainment is for next week on Oasis of the Seas?
  6. Cruising again January 6th. I am am also about 30 plus days out from having both knees replaced. (Looking forward this this almost and our next cruise!!!) I can still get around fairly well but at the end of the day, I have found that having an ice pack REALLY helps with pain management. We have a refillable ice bag with a wide mouth screw top. My question is how do I get ice to fill it and not be 'that guy'? Can I ask the room attendant to have a bucket of ice for me every night at turn down? Can I order it from room service? (free?) What other options are there.
  7. Find one of the ships "Compass" and download it. No older than 2 months if possible. That will give you a day-by-day breakdown on ALL activities and give you a flavor of the pace and availability of entertainment and leisure. Quite honestly, one of my favorite pastimes once on the ship is to get your favorite adult beverage and go to the BACK of the boat on deck 5 (...any one feeling me on this..) snag a wooden chase recliner/chair and chill out looking at the boats bubble trials as you steam forward....now that is true relaxing!~ ...cheers...
  8. Just so I am clear... We are on Oasis OTS this January... If we wanted to download and use the Royal App, that is free to use but... If I wanted to use the text others that are ALSO using the APP, I would need to have a Voom package of some sort...Correct?
  9. Help me figure this one out... There are 3 couples traveling together. 2 couples reservations are linked. (6 total in our party) We currently all have 'my time dining' selected but want to change it over to 'traditional' for early seating. (If still available) We sail January 6th, 2019. What is the best way to change our dinning preference to traditional? I don't see it anywhere on the cruise planner. Brian & Liv.
  10. I have been to the naughty room...All perfectly an honest mistake ...RIGHT... Seriously...have my 2 bottles of wine...also had an EMPTY litre drinking water bottle...that flagged it for me... The crew had a good laugh.
  11. I feel that it has a LOT to do with the composition of the passengers. We were on Broadway neighborhood deck 10 on Harmony OTS last year. Terrible noise from the BW area. It all stemmed from young kind (14-17 : Both male and female) that gathered out on the boardwalk area and, surprising enough, up on the sports deck overhang to Boardwalk. There were anywhere from 15 to 25 of them and the seemed to travel in packs. The first night it went on until 1 AM and the I called security and guest services and made a nice complaint. They eventually got to them and they disband for awhile...30 minutes...then 2 AM it started up again. Mind you this was with our balcony door closed and latched. I called again and asked what the noise curfew was and the told me 11 pm - 'strictly enforced'. HA! They broke them up - again. Second night MUCH better and I saw security sitting out there at midnight! (Thank you RCCL). Third night OK. 4th night OK. 5th night...some dude brought his guitar and was trying his best to be Bob Dylan and Elton John. Not good...Called at midnight and they flushed him away... All I am saying is that your mileage may vary by who is on the ship. We normally go with Outside balcony view...then you are almost guaranteed to have a sound nights sleep...
  12. Yes - the math checks out correctly but what I was originally questioning is if 2 is the right number for the first cruise given the time frame and the cabin type, Thanks
  13. Here you go.

  14. I lied - oops - I did get 2 points. Still wondering if the math is right? Mariner of the Seas Nov 21 — Nov 28, 2004 Points earned: 2
  15. So, help me with the math and some additional information... We took a 7 night on the Mariner and had an Owners suite. We only got 1 point. Does that seem right?
