  1. I'm pushing 80 and travel often with two middle aged daughters. We booked the owners suite on the SKY for a Bahamas vacation a couple of years ago and it solved all of our issues. The Sky's OS has a king bed and bathroom which is separate from a very large living room (which has a pull-down Murphy style double bed along with a sofa bed) and a half-bath. The OS experience allows you to bypass lines at embarkation, disembarking, meals, shows, etc. The balcony has plenty of space for four people. You might want to think about this rather than than paying for two separate rooms. When we went
  2. I've enjoyed several Uniworld cruises as a single. In April, I hope to sail with Tauck as a single. Tauck offers the "no single suppliment" only on the lowest category, however. With Uniworld, I was able to choose whatever category I wanted. I know I will enjoy the Tauck experience as I have done many "land based" trips with them in the past. I'm not so sure that I'll like aquarium class. Right now...I'm just hoping I get the chance to find out!
  3. This made my day! Such fun to read positive experiences in the midst of all that's not. You sound like someone I would want to meet on my next cruise. Thanks for posting!
  4. Thank you so much for posting your review. We have booked the owners suite on deck 9 for an October cruise. It's much like yours, but the balcony is slightly smaller. Needless to say, we follow CruiseCritic regularly and are hoping for a return to normal sailings by Fall. We were on this same cruise this past September and had Efron. Agree with you - he's topnotch. I'm so glad you were able to go and enjoy the Sky! She's one of our favorites.
  5. Disappointed, but thank you both for replies.
  6. Can balcony dividers be opened to connect with adjacent cabins on Pursuit?
  7. We used the free air from CLT to MIA last Fall and were given nonstop flights on AA. Our flight left CLT around 9:30am and the return flight left MIA around 1:00pm. If I'd been paying for tickets, these are the exact flights I would have chosen. I was very pleased.
  8. I'm planning a family reunion for 2021 and want to explore options on the Sky for October of 2021. I cannot find any mention of this ship sailing at that time. Has anyone heard what is being planned for the Sky? ( I've specifically chosen the Sky for the Owners Suite/Penthouse arrangement so I'm not really interested in another ship.)
  9. I had the same situation and went ahead and purchased my own package. They were offering something called Caps and Corks which allows me to enjoy beer and wine but no mixed drinks. That's ok because it's mainly the wine I'm after. If I decide to get a mojito I can just pay for it. To me, it's just not worth the worry of having to depend on someone else to get my drinks on their card. Also, passengers 1 and 2 would NEVER forgive me if I caused them to lose their perks.
  10. We had suite 9001 and can definitely assure you that you will be spoiled forever!!! Be sure to take advantage of breakfast in Cagneys. It's such a peaceful and elegant way to start your day. Also, you will want to have your butler serve dinner in your suite a night or two. The priority boarding in Miami was very, very nice. Instead of waiting in a long line, you are escorted to a private area with some snacks and drinks and have a very personalized check in. Yes...it might be a splurge, but it's also an experience you will forever remember...long after you have forgotten the actual cost.
