Following.
We arrive in HON tomorrow as well but no formal tours booked. We are going to do the hop on hop off buses to re-visit places we've been before (we lived there in the 80's). We are...

Cruises out of SJ are great and usually port intensive. You will like it.
We've stayed at the Caribe Hilton. Very nice. Short taxi ride from airport then short taxi ride to ship.
Taxi prices are...

Interesting news item. The "My Pillow" guy on TV had been advertising Buy One Get One sale since forever. I read an article where supposedly the Better Business Bureau gave him a grade of "F" because...

Most of the cruises are 7 days so 2 free days out of 7 is only about 29% savings. I guess that's how RCL makes up for giving the extra 3% on cruises divisible by 3. Hmmm...... For them it's still...

Bad Idea? Good Idea?
I thought it might be fun to start a thread about things the RCL used to do which were good ideas or bad ideas.

Examples:

Bad Idea: Having poorly dressed and made up "pirates" going around the...

I'm guessing, as Bob said, supply & demand" too. As cabins approach being sold out the price goes up.
Perhaps only less desirable located LIS are left while only a few SIS are left but in better...

One of the things we like that was mentioned a little above is the fact that the Diamond lounge is open all day. It has a cappacchino machine and depending on the ship, they will have snacks (such as...

"One man's ceiling is another man's floor"
Interesting how people are split on preferences. We have cruised both ships several times and we prefer the Freedom. But really, both are great and the...

Another factor about the hurricane season is the possible change in itinerary. RCL reserves the right to change the itinerary at the last minute due to weather without compensation. We cruised on...

Lot's of choices. All sound good to me.
Since you have only gone Eastern/Western, have you thought about Southern routes? Going out of PR there are usually many ports and few sea days per itinerary....

On Board credit is per cabin. I think the amount depends on the category you book. Not sure.

It makes no sense to us but it probably makes sense to RCI. I believe that many times they upgrade you when they need your cabin which is why first timers can get upgrades. Perhaps because a 3rd bunk...

With all the talk of "free" places to go, I prefer to refer to them as "included".
LOL

I know that. Obviously you can book anything through a 3rd party including all the other things I mentioned. I like the convenience of a TA. My point was simply that you can't do many 3rd party...

Here are our picks with reasons.
We haven't tried the Oasis or new class class ships yet

You're going to get a lot of different answers. In our case, we like a good TA due to all the other things associated with travel (planes, trains, boats, travel insurance etc). For instance, we...

We've been to several but we don't go anymore.
Some are great, some are lame. It all depends on the actors and perhaps the audience as well.

For watching ships, we like to eat clam chowder and drink beer at Grills.
