  1. All I see noted here is the weight restriction. What about height, is it checked? The guidelines show a weight requirement based on height
  2. Crazy band name. Hope it's not the named after the band lead. But seriously, I was kind of hoping for more of a 'best of' list than a good and bad. It would be nice to see a performer listed in the Compass and know that was a 'don't miss' show.
  3. Sorry but I don't understand this statement. Are you saying the band was mediocre but the singer was good?
  4. I have been following these boards for a while and I have seen questions about favorite drinks, favorite food, etc. But other than random mentions in trip reports, I really haven’t seen a summary list of favorite entertainers. Not the big production shows themselves, but the rotating bands, headliners, lounge acts, etc. I’ve seen good ones, but some just seem to be on a different level. I’ll start out with some standouts for me with my limited experience on my most recent sailings of Allure and Grandeur. Centerpiece - On Allure of the Seas last year the rock band named Centerpiece performed in Dazzles off and on in the evening. Excellent band especially the lead guitarist. I wanted to hear them more. Their sets were amazing. Las Vegas Tenors. This was a Headliner group also on Allure and a lot more entertaining than I expected. My whole party enjoyed this group. Gary Caouette – Stand-up Comedian. He had the ‘required’ cruise jokes, but many were more creative than I’ve heard before. If I’m guessing the punchline before it’s delivered, as in most of the comedians I’ve seen on board, then the performance doesn’t really stand for me. I really enjoyed his sets and as a plus, he didn’t rely so heavily on ‘adult’ shock humor which I think is a crutch. What are some of your favorites and why?
  5. I was on Allure last year and had Whistlepig rye. I remember specifically because it was my first time trying it.
  6. That cabin's balcony on Anthem overlooks the center of a lifeboat so will have a view similar to the shot below. Thanks for the photo. That's what I expected. Someone had a layout of the lifeboats and supports (I know that isn't the correct term) which is how I picked the cabin so that is was centered over a lifeboat. This was the same price as an ocean view so it seemed reasonable to me.
  7. Yes. This is the cruise we are doing. I couldn't remember the name of the primary group. I kind of hope there is some crossover. They have some legacy groups that I don't have much familiarity with but kind of know some of their songs. I just don't want to feel like a second class citizen. The RCCL price for this cruise doubled since we booked. I don't know what the theme participants paid.
  8. I forgot to mention that this trip with the bike was a success. I found it easy to get off the ship and ride in Charleston, Port Canaveral and Miami. Charleston was easiest. Just off the ship and go. Port Canaveral required some walking from the road down an embankment to a bike path right in the port area. The road in and out was not busy at the times I was out but I could see it being harder at peak times. Miami port to South beach was not hard at all. It was an easy route to the bridge from the port area and then a comfortable trip north to 15th street, then east to Miami beach. I took an Uber back to the port only to save time back to the ship. The traffic on the MacArthur Parkway made the trip back almost as long. I wouldn't recommend the MacArthur Parkway based on my view of it. Pretty fast and distracted traffic. Here is a photo of my bike on Grandeur of the seas. I asked if I could get a little closer to the Centrum before taking it so no one would get upset. A crew member took the shot of me. He was fascinated with the bike and wanted to order one.
  9. My last cruise was on Grandeur in March so I think I have an idea what to expect. I'm just hoping that there aren't a lot of venues taken over that we will not be allowed into. I've seen special events for groups before, but I think this is a big event. There appear to be a lot of entertainers scheduled.
  10. I happened to pick a cruise that has a large group of 50s music cruisers. What can I expect? Will the entertainment be more limited for those of us that didn't book for this event. Will some theme events be inclusive for all of us? Just don't know what to expect. I hope we won't feel like second class passengers. Hoping for some insight from others that may have been in the same situation.
  11. Topic: Adventure of the seas cabin 7206 pics please Did you complete this trip? I would like to see pics also. I have a trip upcoming in Nov.
  12. I'm interested also. I found this video. I assume it's the same layout. But another photo had a pole next to the bed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgTGLma919A
  13. According the RCCL website the water slides on Adventure have the following weight limits. "220 lbs. maximum for Typhoon℠ and 250 lbs. maximum for Cyclone℠ on Adventure of the Seas " I can probably do the 250 lbs one if I don't go too crazy on the ship. But which one is yellow and which is blue. Is one better (faster) than the other?
  14. News article of someone being rescued for a medical condition. Footage of the air lift is included both from inside and from another helo. Thankfully the Coast Guard is there to help. https://amp.app.com/amp/1460953001
