On the sea day trying to get into my VPN timed out almost immediately. Today, in port, but on my balcony with only about 2.6 Mbps (the 8Mbps was up on the solarium) - - it tried and I think had more...

In port today and with clear skies and the ship docked, the speed on that premium plus thing (the $350 plan) is 8Mbps downstream, fast and consistent, which means my email runs instead of taking a...

I didn't look at any of the prices after I saw the package I bought. And it really is consistent and fast. Really. I'll see if I can find a full list and paste it in here.

I quite understand it's not at all for everyone. But I'm hoping enough people who can use it - will; and wont abuse it so it doesn't get hinky and bogged down that they continue to have this plan and...

I don't know -but if that's something new - my guess is that's what it is. I remember someone posting a week or so back (maybe a little more) that they were on the Allure and there was a day when...
Mini Review - WiFi on Allure, all you can use plan
I'm on the Alure right now - not fretting over my minutes. I hadn't seen this plan mentioned but I'm not the most consistent CC RCCL Board reader. But there's a Premium Plus Voyage Plan with...

Also remember that while your brothers might not be turned away, other people have looked forward to a special night with a different ambiance. They've spent time and perhaps money to have that...

DH and I are both self employed, and both happily love our work. So we tend to be very connected. I have a private professional practice so staying in touch is pretty important for me. I do email...

OK, I went a little crazy. I don't think I needed the small bags. We use folding luggage because DH is a clothes hound and men's suits just do best in them and they have little compartments at the...

I really appreciate the responses.

I do think that if we were still doing multi-destination trips (I don't consider 1 cruise to a few ports in the same area multi-destination) I would definitely...

I did think this would be great for multiple destinations. But for various reasons our multiple destination trips seems to be diminishing. But I will remember if that changes, And I like the idea...

Cross-packing, this is something I always think about in advance and rarely do. An other good justification.

See this is a justification I can ... well justify. I love to color code, and my husband has that genetic issue that some men have where they can look right at a cabinet or refrigerator or shelf and...

Good point. When I roll my clothes I can pack more in the suitcase and my big bag tends to go over 50 pounds.

I use plastic bags for all of our electronics, and meds (one bag reads "bad tummy"...

Packing Cubes question for those who DON'T Pack light
Hi everyone

I adore the look of those packing cubes. But I wonder if they are worth it for us.

We are NOT light packers. We carry multiple suitcases and if need be we will take another one, so...

Pack dressy things in dry cleaner bags - that way things can move without wrinkling. Most dry cleaners will give you a few bags if you ask nicely, or maybe they will charge you $1 for a bunch of them.

Well now I feel dumb. I don't think my friend was on a cruise this trip (rare for her) but just in Cabo ... on land. Do people really take entirely land based vacation???:D

Not seeing much information at all. A friend sent me this email at 6:00 am PDT but I'm not sure what ship she's on.

I really don't want to give a medication name - but if you ask your doctor for a mild beta blocker that's used for stage fright, he should know what I'm talking about.

Our best traditional tour was a sea plane trip out of Ketchikan to the Misty Fjords area.

I've flown in smaller planes so that wasn't scary for me. But at one point we were flying in thick cloud...

I don't suppose getting off the ship in an ambulance and spending time in a Caribbean Island hospital quite counts as a shore excursion.

But honestly, apart from DH almost dying, it was an amazing...

Early on I said this was the Best Review Ever, and now I'll say it again.

I linked to it on my roll call for anyone who's not been on the Allure (and even those who have been).
