I should have explained better. My wife manages to pack our items and the 2 kids clothes into just two pieces of luggage (defying many laws of physics, IMHO). If I brought a tux (or suit, etc) it...

I was on the came cruise as the OP. The CD was Elvis Pinto, he'll be onboard until Dec 16.

I don't suppose you'd consider selling that one, would you? Adventure is our favorite ship, we've been her 6 times. I'm on track for 140 soon, but somewhat unfortunately that will happen on our 11...

He was AD on Rhapsody last spring when we sailed on her, and he was CD on Adventure when we sailed a week before the OP on this thread. He seemed a little "toned down" on Adventure. We'll be on...

FYI Royal has a number of 7 night sailings out of New England to Bermuda, on Anthem, Serenade, and Grandeur.

Last week we did the "Treasures of Barbados" tour through Glory Tours. They were very professional, even to the point having their own check-in desk at the pier - no wandering around looking for...

I don't suppose you have photos of the cabin? I can't find any, anywhere.

I'd pick one of the Azamara cruises that goes to southern Asia. That whole part of the world is so alien and strange to me...I'd love to go there.

On one cruise we met a pair of gentlemen wearing kilts, and I noted that the design was from Clan Gordon, of which I am from. It lead to some great conversation.

I'd wear a kilt if I owned one.

Michelle is da bomb! Great lady to work with.

In answer to your question, I'd say you could rely in your own device 90% of the time, and if it didn't connect to the wifi hotspots, complain to...

How much do you tip the Diamond Lounge Concierge? We were just on Rhapsody and he assisted with serving drinks, and gave my kids two souvenirs (rather pricey ones, a model of the ship, and the glass...

We booked her for April 1, 2018, and Roatan has been replaced with the Cayman Islands, just as an FYI.

I think Vision class ships are the last class built to have enough elevators to accommodate the number of passengers onboard. We were on Rhapsody and rarely had to wait for elevators.

I sailed on Rhapsody Apr. 1-8, and my TA asked about the internet service just this morning. This was my response:

I’d call it “adequate”. We were in room 3055 and I had 2 bars out of 5. Some...

On our cruise two weeks ago I spent a lot of time at the Schooner Bar befriending the bartenders and watching them work. For mixed drinks, or any of the lower end liquors, generous pours were the...

That wasn't our experience on Adventure last November. Two different curries daily, with one being vegetarian. It's the "good stuff" that they make for the crew. We had a curry with okra, fish...

Actually, it does make sense. It's to prevent two people (like you and your TA) from modifying the reservation at the same time. How would it know what medication to keep and what to discard?

[QUOTE=khm1;52125439]One thing I found interesting about the changes to the ship was the gym. There used to be a huge hot tub as you walked in. It is GONE now. I really loved that big hot tub. No one...

What the heck happened in 2014 to cause that Suite price spike?
Thank you, this is indeed good news!

Can someone onboard please post the terms and conditions for using the 25% credit? I've heard it has to be used within a year, and can't be used on holiday sailings.

Those are the new, stripped down menus for Giovanni's. :( How very, very disappointing.

EDIT: Not only that, when I go into the cruise planner for the cruise I'm on this Saturday, it's *still*...
