  1. I've been following for 8 or 9 hours. I just felt I had to comment, however inane it was. Edit: I'll add this. I live in Newfoundland, near where itineraries dock here in St. John's. We get similar storms frequently (in the midst of one) and have equally dangerous shorelines. I'm amazed at what the Norwegian Rescue teams had at their disposal and how well they used it. We have similar with equally trained personnel but for that volume of people to be removed in those conditions without incident is nothing short of amazing. I don't think it would have gone so well anywhere else in the world.
  2. Yes the lack of mint was my major gripe as well. LOL! First world problems.
  3. I was on FOS Jan 27th to Feb 3rd. I echo this review. The service was fantastic as was the service all around. Ship was showing her age but not distractingly so. Only small gripe was poorly stocked bars which seemed to not be able to keep supplies for certain drinks (but I always managed to not leave empty handed). This was my 5th cruise with RC. I didn't have The Key but for that terminal, if I had paid for it, I would have looked for my money back. The keys were with the pinnacles, followed by the emeralds, diamond+, etc. but after about the first 15 people or so went through after they opened the door, it was a circus and basically everyone just went on. I thought they did a terrible job of that, bordering on dangerous. It was much better coming off. I didn't see how the key worked for coming off but if it helped me avoid the long customs line I would probably do it next time. "I just returned from our 7 day cruise (ABC) on FOS" Dumb question I'm sure, but what does ABC mean in this context?
  4. I agree, I love RC but that is unacceptable as you have narrated it. I would take my NRD back and take my money elsewhere. That said, as a last effort, if you are going on an Oasis Class (Boardwalk so I assume yes) ask if there are any Ultra Spacious OV w/Lg Balcony available. A little more room and potential for privacy in one room with a balcony as well and still close to boardwalk. 7730 & 7330 I think off the top of my head. There are a couple of others in the same class but I'd take one of those first.
  5. The swimming pig excursion is a short boat ride away in the North Berry Islands, a little south and east of Coco Cay.
  6. I would also not that in the Cruise Planner there is a separate heading for "Perfect Day". That's where the pig swim is showing up for me at least.
  7. I'm booked on a May 10th, 2020 Harmony sailing (Perfect Day on May 11th, 2020) and so far there is very little available in the Cruise Planner as an extra. Parasail and Swimming Pigs tours.
  8. Hi, I put deposits on some voyages yesterday but I have not received one confirmation email. They are all showing up in my upcoming cruises page I just prefer an email for my own organization. Is this a thing now that they no longer send these emails confirming the payment and then another with the guest invoice attached? Or is it a batch thing that just hasn't happened yet?
  9. How can you go drinking all day if you don't start first thing in the morning? When you get that last drink at 3-4 am you need to get some beers for the state room fridge such that when you wake up at 7 am you can have 2-3 beers right off the bat before you get to the windjammer for the double bloody mary.
  10. Are you on the 27th Freedom sailing (28th to St. Kitts)? Did your husband book this? I'm on the that sailing and have the same questions. If you have already figured out the answers it would be great if you could share it. Particularly if the course will allow non playing spouse to accompany without paying a green free (and without playing of course). If you have made any other discoveries about golf on this itinerary that you could share that would be great as well. Happy sailing!
