We board next Sunday. Are there separate lines for loyalty status? Do they adhere to the check in times selected online! We have a 11.00 to 11.30 slot so hopefully that won’t be too busy.

As well as the shuttle it’s a flat, easy walk into town if you wish. As you exit the gate on the dockside keep the sea to your right and you will pick up a waterside pathway. This will take you...

We’ve done a boardwalk balcony on Oasis. Yes you can see the Aquashow but it’s much better to experience that from the aqua theatre seating anyway.

We found the noise resonated a lot, even with...

If you buy say a drinks package or a restaurant or dining package there is no additional Spanish tax when onboard when you redeem those purchases.

Apparently they have one on Symphony in the WJ as she doesn’t have a wipe out cafe.

We cruise Celebrity and Royal and have not sailed without an included drinks package for several years.

We monitor prices and only book when we think the price is right. For our B2B in Symphony...
When is the “sweet spot” for getting a deal on upgrade?
I just checked our May 6th Symphony Cruise and that has 14 crown loft suites and 3 Aquatheatre Suites still available. That’s an awful lot of lost revenue on an early sailing of a brand new ship. ...

Pretty much heading the way of other social media. Been on cruisecritic 8 years and unfortunately it’s becoming less friendly on occasion.

Unfortunately that info is straight from RCI UK Executive Office after I queried why it didn’t appear on my planner. The escape room also doesn’t show and waiting to see if that’s going to be...

The Gastrobar menu offered on Eclipse was only on sea days and the times were pretty restricted. I liked the idea of what they did with cellar masters on Equinox as that venue seems woefully...

I wouldn’t book on the US site even if I could because the US big TAs usually offer additional booking perks over the RCI site.

I’ve used a big US TA a few times. I’ve had to call them to get...

Well I guess I must be getting old as when I read the OPs question I winced, poised to scroll down and read dozens of “how dare you” responses. We’ve only been cruising for 9 years and how things...

I saw that video on another thread. It looked a bit bland but perhaps it’s not been completely finished. The menu just doesn’t inspire me enough to spend $39.

Gosh. I cannot knock your dining choices but alas this just falls into the hands of Royal to reduce the MDR offerings to push more people into speciality dining. I’m guessing in 10 yrs there will...

The booked cruise is likely to have warmer weather than a western Med Cruise. If it was me I would choose the cruise before the one you have booked. That’s still quite late in the season so places...
Silhouette Dining Poll
Personally we’ve tried Murano twice and not been impressed. It feels like how a French restaurant in London in the 80s would feel, trying to impress with style over substance (who uses plate cloches...

If you go to the dining room when you board you can make them aware of your reservations for your group and of your requirement for two tables together. They will probably keep the table assignment...
