  1. Others will disagree, but we did it three times last year with no problems. Phila to Miami twice and Phila to Seattle. All were direct flights at good times on American Airlines. We did pay the extra to fly in the day before. Hope all goes well for you.
  2. We usually have a balcony, but we were just on the Breakaway, Room 5210, Oceanview and really liked it. We missed having a balcony, but the room was more open. It was much easier getting an elevator as well as getting on and off at port. The hallways on Deck 5 are much wider than on Deck 14. I vote you keep your perks and give the oceanview a try. (Note: There are no coffeemakers in the oceanview rooms.)
  3. We were on the Breakaway last week. They did have the towel exchange at each port. When you took the towel, they took your room #. One day we returned them and he didn't want our room #. We asked how they would know we returned the towels and they just said they didn't need it. I seriously doubt they have a system to check. It's the "honor system" so anyone could make up a cabin #. You can also get them from your room steward.
  4. It was part of the standard menu (I think it was $49) and there was no upcharge with the Dining Package. Prior to last week the Surf & Turf on the Breakaway was shrimp instead of lobster. We tried it twice. To be honest, it wasn't that good. I was a bit disappointed with my meal both nights. The steak was overcooked and dry and the lobster wasn't very good.
  5. Sorry if this has already been posted, but if not....We were on the Breakaway last week and Cagney's now offers Surf & Turf (filet mignon and lobster tail). It was included with our dining package. The waiter said they just started serving it. I don't know if it is available anywhere else.

  7. You cannot pre-book the comedy shows on the website. When you board the ship, go to one of the boards located at each end of the hallways and you can make your reservations for the Comedy Shows, Laser Tag and Go Karts (as well as shows in the theater and dining reservations). Do it early because some shows sell out fast.
  8. We used it in May and July and will be using it again tomorrow. We flew in the day before for the $25 deviation fee. All three trips were on AA (PHL to MIA and PHL to SEA). All three left from home in the morning around 8:00 a.m. and were direct flights. We do have to fly home from FLL for our upcoming cruise (an 11:40 a.m. flight. They assured us we would be fine. Still not confident about that!). I have AA's credit card, so we did not have to pay baggage fees, but you will have to pay $30 if you do not have their credit card. I was able to change our seats free of charge through their website. You will need the Record Locator number. Hope this helps!
  9. It was not fixed in July or May. Both times we had to go to the Shore Excursions Desk to request the credit. I think they hope you won't notice! Be sure to double check your onboard account.
  10. Hi - You will get two certificates for each cruise. One for Cagneys or LeBistro and one for LaCucina or Moderno. It includes one starter, one entrée and one dessert.
  11. We were on the Joy last week. The second restaurant choices are LaCucina, Q or Food Republic. The first was LeBistro or Cagneys.
  12. Thanks for the responses. We are able to board early, so we will book on the touchscreens when we book the Comedy shows. Drinks and lunch will have to wait!
  13. We are sailing on the Joy on Saturday. Will we be able to book the Go Karts and Laser Tag on the touchscreens in the hallway and/or the in room TV ? Thank you.
  14. Are you able to sign up for the Go Karts and Laser Tag on the touchscreens in the hallways and/or the room tv? Thank you.
  15. We received luggage tags for the first time on our upcoming Alaska Joy sailing in a balcony. That was a surprise. I thought maybe it was because we were Platinum, but we were Platinum for our May cruise and did not receive luggage tags by mail.
