  1. We have sailed on RCCL 3 times and NCL about 6 times. I find that the cruise lines have a lot of similarities. Dining: NCL: I do like freestyle dining. But it makes me eat more at the buffet because I forget to go to dinner until it is too late. 🙂 RCCL: You have My time dining which you can pick your dining time. I do like having a set time and the same waiter/waitress each night. Entertainment: I think both cruise lines does a great job with entertainment. I think it really depends on what you are looking for. Activities: NCL hands down has more activities happening especially on sea days such has different trivia, games, etc. TV Channels: NCL has a more variety of TV channels and selection. Also if you want to catch up on your movies in your staterooms movies are free. RCCL you have to pay $11.99 to watch a movie in your stateroom. Pool Deck: RCCL has a much larger pool deck with lots of places to sit. Staterooms: I find RCCL staterooms (at least balcony rooms) bigger. Lots of drawers and storage. Bathrooms seem to be a little larger on RCCL. Beds I find much more comfortable on NCL than RCCL. Staff: Both cruise lines have amazing staffs members. Food: NCL has the best french fries while RCCL has the best pizza. If drink package and dining package aren't a concern I think Pride of America is your best bet on seeing and experiencing Hawaii. It is on my bucket list but haven't been able to do it yet.
  2. I tried to find it but they were only showing Cricket. Also the men soccer had some game last weekend and they were showing those games. I couldn't find anywhere on the ship that was showing the women's world cup. I did see that I missed a great high scoring game last week with the USA women scoring 13 goals. 🙂 I did catch the last half today while eating lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings. Have a great cruise. We had a great cruise!
  3. No World Cup games are being shown. But if you love cricket they are showing it. The TV selections are very limited!
  4. I will let you know. I know when we cruised in the past they have shown the men's world cup games but we were in Europe. Thanks for the reminder of the app. I need to download now.
  5. If you go into the cruise already thinking it is going to be bad that isn't a good sign. Go in with a good attitude. Example: We were going on a cruise with another cruise line. I read all kinds of negative reviews about the staff being rude to the ship being in horrible conditions. I actually wasn't expecting a lot from this cruise. We get on the ship and had the best time. All the staff was amazing. We have actually been on that ship again. As someone said people may post more negative reviews before they post positive. Have a great time. Sounds like an amazing cruise!
  6. I am wondering the same thing. USA women play Tuesday and we will be on the ship!! I hope they do! 1 more day until we get on the ship!!
  7. I have friends who are sailing tomorrow on Majesty out of Fort Lauderdale and they have changed their itinerary. They have a sea day on Thursday and going to Costa Maya instead of Havana, Cuba. They are adding a refund in the value of 50% per stateroom of the cruise fare paid as a credit to your onboard account. If you don' use the onboard credit they will refund back the credit card on file. They are a little disappointed as her parents were supposed to go but because her step dad was born in Cuba he couldn't get the correct paperwork needed so they cancelled. It is a shame that this is happening especially people who are already booked.
  8. Love your review so far. We are on the Harmony sailing on Sunday, June 9. We have done the Oasis so I am excited to see the Harmony. We were on the NCL Getaway during spring break with over 1800 children 18 and under on board (only reason we knew was because CD announced during the "drill". Our cabin was next to a group of teenagers who decided on the last night to invite about 1000 of them to their cabin. Loud music, knocks on our door and doors slamming was too much to handle. Called security and they showed up after 1AM. They were quiet all week long but this last night was out of control.
