I would not pay more for the same category of room. We always book guarantee when available, and have always been happy with the room, as well as the occasional upgrade.

It's very nice. Make a point to stop by and check out the selection. If you don't think you'd like it you can always eat somewhere else.

Some Quests have been family friendly, but extremely funny, especially with the instant-replays. Others have been R-rated (full frontal nudity) and also very entertaining. It really depends on the...

If you'd rather not run outdoors where you may experience actual sunshine, you might consider running on a treadmill at the gym. They have very good equipment and you can't beat the views of the...

I think you'll enjoy the solarium, steakhouse (Chops), and piano bar (Schooner bar). The production shows on Royal tend to be among the top in the industry. MDR food will be about the same as...

Thanks for sharing the info. There are certainly ways to get around this since pretty much any computer can be used as a router with the right hardware and software, and they can't really ban all...

We've been big Royal fans, but had a great experience on Celebrity on our last cruise. Great food, and a really good deal, with an upgrade to a very nice suite with a butler and private hot tub on...

We were seated once at an 8-top with all gay couples. This was not a gay cruise, they just had a very attentive Maître D'.

If it was really that rough, I would sit tight and hold on to something solid so that I didn't get tossed around 18 feet. Is it just me? Or is that common sense?

When you chose to go to CocoCay in the windy season, you're choosing a high likelihood of missing the stop. When it's windy, there are waves. When there are large waves, it's not safe to board a...

While that's the regulation, most cruise ships have enough capacity in the rafts alone to accommodate everyone. Rafts don't take up much room, and there are many more than required by regulation.

It would not be possible to deploy the lifeboats in those conditions, and would not be safe to do so. Fortunately there are many more life rafts than necessary for all passengers and crew. So if the...

I noticed that too. Most likely, they had to use the thrusters to keep the bow into the wind. The thrusters are designed to run for a few minutes at a time while docking, etc. They were not designed...

Times change. What was once seen as elegant can now seem tacky. People still enjoy dressing up, they may just chose to do so with today's style, rather than yesterday's idea of going out for the...

Not necessarily. They can screw some plywood over the damaged area temporarily. It only takes a few minutes. Not a big deal.

Nobody has a full damage report, and only after they do a full inspection will they know how long it will take. The drop ceiling can be temporarily fixed quickly. The galley can be cleaned up and the...
