    Why cruise in September?

    We still cruise every September, even after being on Anthem in 2016 during Hermine with 100mph+ winds on the way to Bermuda. Still had a blast. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day is our peak work season - so no vacation time then. As long as I am on the ship I really don't mind where we end up or the seas along the way. Also less kids and lower prices are a plus.

    How many reservations do you have?

    We have 6 booked currently through April 2020. When new itineraries are released we book right away and collect price drops along the way. Typically 3 cruises per year.

    Questions about Grandeur Cabins

    We always get an Interior Stateroom in the middle of Deck 4 between the Centrum and the front stairs/elevators. This area gives quick access to most activities, shows and MDR. Also convenient for a quick pit-stop if needed. ;) Ocean View if you prefer natural light, Interior for darkness. We are rarely in our room except for sleep, shower or change. These rooms have the affectionate shower curtain. :eek: We had one of our best cruises on her in April and will be back on her again in December. :D

    New England Ports of Call

    Another good source for information is Tom's Port Guides. He has PDF files that you can download will a lot of useful information.
  8. I have made this trip three times so far. The Anthem as well as the other cruise ships are too far out to sea. Basically, while you are in port you have coverage -- other than that you will have "cellular at sea" service with applicable data charges unless you have some form of a plan.
  9. I have gotten weekend price drops on about a third of my cruises over the years. Residential (NJ), C&A as well as just plain one day price drops.
  10. 1986 Emerald Seas - Admiral Cruise Line. (Later acquired by RCL along with Little Stirrup Cay, now Coco Cay) They still threw streamers when leaving port on sail away.

    Just off Grandeur

    I saw that you stated you that "we ate all of our dinners in the specialty venues", that was my point regarding specialty restaurants. I do agree with you the specialty restaurants leaves something to be desired. We used to do dining packages all the time until this last time. The decline and leaving something to desire is why we stopped going - except Izumi, still being subjective. I also agree that food taste is highly subjective as I need to look no further than my DW across the table.

    Just off Grandeur

    We just got off 9N Grandeur on Saturday before you got on. We ate all but one night in the MDR, MTD 2-top. Our food was very good and had the best service we've ever had. The only specialty restaurant we go to now is Izumi as all the others quality have gone down hill almost as much as the prices went up.

    RCCL Website

    Same for me as well 0 and Pre-Gold instead of D+. All future and past cruises listed properly. Checked info and gender was blank as well, entered male, saved, logged out and back in and it now shows all points and D+ again. IT glitch of the week.

    Oasis/ Quantum class

    I guess we go against the tide. We prefer Quantum class over Oasis class. Plenty to do on both classes, but Oasis always seemed crowded, venues too small making it hard to get seats if at all. Oasis is the only ship we were on that had a waiting line outside the entrance every day to get a seat in the WJ. Quantum class never seemed crowded. However, Oasis class has better shows and Aqua-Theater.

    Quantum Class cabins

    They are the same. I have stayed in inside cabins on both ships Quantum and Anthem.
