Think I might left it as there are no MDR reservation times available between 5:30 and 7;45. I've booked 7:45 all week and if we change our mind and don't mind queuing I'm sure they'll get us in...

What protection is their for people with dog allergies? You no longer get nuts on planes because of the fear of nut allergies so why should dogs be allowed on planes?

Thanks. It's our first time with Royal Caribbean so not sure what the situation is. With P&O, who we usually cruise with, we turn up and register at the desk. They usually ask if we are happy to...

Thanks - it sounds like I don't need to take my suit if a shirt and tie will suffice. As for dining, I'll look at making reservations now. Beginning to wish I'd not gone for My Time dining now!

We've been on two cruises affected by hurricanes. The worst that happened was a missed port one day as the ship had to sail "round" the hurricane. On the other cruise we had a couple of port changes....

Just wondering, my wife and I have My Time dining but we haven't made any reservations for the simple reason we are more than happy to share with other people at dinner. I'm assuming this is an...

Actually I've thought of one more question. We - that is my wife and I - have booked My Time dining for a bit of flexibility. Just wondering what sort of wait times are typical? We are happy to...

An excellent report, thank-you. We are travelling to the US next week to take the New England cruise departing 24th August and this has really got us excited! One question that I know has been asked...
Adventure of the Seas - Casino
I'm on the Adventure next week and am just wondering what the minimum bets at the casino are? I enjoy the odd bet but don't want to put down a fortune! Thanks.

And there's the problem - the "policy" is too vague and open to interpretation. Dress codes at restaurants or functions are normally unambiguous: black tie, white tie, lounge suits etc etc. Either...

Clearly a touchy subject but that's the problems with dress codes, be they on a ship, in a restaurant or at work. If you have one then it needs to be specific (eg black tie) and enforced otherwise...

I'm pleased I found this thread. We are going on our first RCI cruise in four weeks and I've been wondering about formal wear. British cruise lines such as P&O tend to be quite strict on their formal...

This has been puzzling me. We have booked My Time dining but if you need to reserve beforehand, surely that negates the flexibility that My Time brings? Also, there are only two of us but we would be...

Thanks, that's what I suspected. Our flight doesn't leave until 7pm so I guess it's better than spending hours sitting at JFK, though. I assume you have to be off the ship around 9am?

On a related issue we were thinking of taking the Manhatten highlights and JFK transfer at the end of the cruise as an alternative to taking a taxi. Has anybody done this before? Is it worth it? We...

Well thanks for all of this information. It's given us food for thought and sounds like there is plenty to do without having to book any onboard excursions!

Interesting reading. We are taking this cruise in August and I've been wondering about the ports of call - whether to take an excursion or just explore on our own. We're from the UK and don't want to...
New England Ports of Call
Hi All. We're on the Adventure of the Seas going to New England and Canada in August and have a simple question for anyone who's been on that cruise before. Are the ports (Halifax, St Johns, Bar...

I'm on a two night cruise this weekend that has a black tie night. Logically this must be either the first or last night; my money is on the last night. I doubt packing will be an issue on a...
Airport transfer
I'm thinking of booking a Manhattan Highlights and Airport Transfer excursion at the end of our cruise in August but wondered if anybody any experience of these. Are they worth it or a waste of...

I hope it's OK for our two nighter to Belgium at the end of May. A five hour delay is a good chunk of the cruise!

This is very true. We have been on may American cruises - mostly Carnival and NCL - and the quality of the burgers is out of this world. The American cruising experience is a lot different to ours;...

They are awful - avoid like the plague! I've never been one for flag waving jingoism but these "parties" are really no more than an excuse to sell more Pimms.

I've never had a bad meal in the Azura MDR - a few mediocre ones, but never a bad one. The food is always hot and plentiful, although a little on the unadventurous side. I agree with a previous...

This is true but even if you book through P&O it is worth it. We went a few years back and were able to by-pass the HUGE queue because we were on an excursion.
