  1. Do you know which rooms on deck 11 Boardwalk would not be obstructed by the Abyss slide? Want to see the sea:)
  2. Hi...starting to think of dining options on the Symphony....I was watching a youtube video where they specified a "Mongolia Stir Fry Station"... My question is: is the station there every night on the Symphony or is it just one night (Theme) on the cruise. My husband LOVES this..He has had it twice on different RCL cruises and it is one of the first questions he asks when we board. Thanks a bunch...
  3. Hello, Could you give me advice? I have an Owners suite booked on Symphony 2022 and I am concidering to changing it to Crowne Loft suite, current price 10500€. Price of Owners suite is now about 11000€. I have originally paid only 6000€ for my OS. Can I change the cabin class from OS to cheaper crowne Loft without extra money? Or will they compare the current price to what I have paid and ask me to pay 4500€ more?
  4. Does anyone know what the studio rooms look like, please? I'm looking to book for next year as a solo but can't find any pictures or information about it. Thanks [emoji41] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. We were able to lift and shift a cruise to the Symphony for next summer. We received a killer deal, so I was considering upgrading to the specialty dining package for this cruise. The restaurants look interesting, especially Wonderland. My son saw that and said HE would pay for us to go. lol We do love to eat on the cruises and I diet for months getting ready to eat whatever I want on the cruise. So eating is a big focus for us. We have boys too, so it is their ONLY focus in life! We have never been disappointed with the MDR, but there have been a lot of times when the meals w
  6. Have my FIRST Grand Suite....going on Symphony.....what is the best deck and either port of starboard side....and why??? Thanks...I have one on 8th deck booked but many available. Thanks
  7. Hi all, when I did the Lift and Shift for our Symphony cruise in 2022 they gave me cabin 6590. I was worried that it is going to be noisy room because it is on top of Boreros so I called and switched to 7590. Then today I take a close look at the deck plan, 6590 have this " Stateroom has third Pullman bed available" while 7590 doesn't have any key indicator that the room will have a sofa or not. We will have 3 people to stay in this room. Did I make a mistake by moving to 7590? Thanks in advance
  8. Does anyone know if the 1 bedroom aqua theatre suites on Harmony & Symphony are really as different as the videos I've seen on U-Tube? Harmony has no dining table in side at all, Symphony does with what looks like a very roomy living room area. Just wondering if the suites really are that different or if the videos were mis labeled or something. Thanks
  9. OK since 2020 is out after being cancelled 3 times. We have booked the symphony for 2021. Can anyone tell me the minimum height requirements for both the water slides and the abyss?
  10. We just took our FCC for the Harmony Cruise that was canceled and re-booked on the Symphony. We were able to get a Junior Suite for the amount of FCC we got from our Cat 1C cabin that was cancelled so that was nice. My question is are any of the Junior suites configured so the the bed is closer to the balcony vs having the couch closer to the Balcony?? Follow up question we are thinking about paying a bit more and switching from the Junior Suite to the Grand 1 Bedroom Suite and was wondering if there is a door from the bedroom to the balcony or is the only way to t
  11. are there still buffets on symphony
  12. Hello all I’m looking at two sailings, December 2020 I am also needing two cabins (not adjoining) I see the current “special”. Who are you booking through? I’m only gold in Crown and Anchor. i know I will be purchasing a drink package and that really gets pricey. thank you🛳 Christine
  13. Currently booked on the Oasis. The Symphony has dropped in price to only $270 more total for the same cabin. Both do the same itinerary and leave the same weekend. Have sailed Oasis and Allure. Wondering if we should switch to Symphony because it is newer or stick with the Oasis because it has been amped. Input from those that have sailed both. I seem to like the beach pool better on Oasis as well as the new outdoor solarium seating. The new clams and cabana beds seem nice too. But, the itinerary only has two sea days so is it really worth it to base my decision on that?
  14. (Oh wow that photo is HUGE! I might have to replace it, oops!!) We just returned from the Symphony of the Seas Eastern Caribbean sailing from 3/16/19 to 3/23/19 and I miss the ship already!! When I plan our vacations I obsessively read trip reports and LOVE reports that have LOTS of photos. I hope this will be helpful in some way to others as they plan their vacations. Or maybe you'll just admire my photos. That's OK too. I'm still getting all of my photos sorted and Cruise Compasses scanned, but hopefully I can get this review completed before I forget everything! Me:
  15. Hi, would you book Allure or Symphony? We know we would absolutely love Mamma Mia but maybe Symphony has other advantages? Thank you your input!
  16. Booking our next cruise for spring break 2022. Looking at Oasis vs. Freedom. We just got off of Symphony in February. Is Oasis basically the same ship? How much smaller is Freedom (or how much smaller does it feel?) My family loved Symphony! We have four kids who will be 7-14 at the time. Is Freedom a "disappointment" after Oasis class ships?
  17. Hi Trying to decide between 12329, which is the last cabin or 14725, which is a deck higher and 3rd from back? Thank you
  18. We have always had the Pullman for 3rd person in cabin. (considering booking Cabin 1D #7664 on Symphony) What is the cabin like if we opt for the sofa bed instead? (considering booking Cabin 5D #7666 on Symphony) We would save approx. $200 with sofa bed option. Does the cabin steward close up the sofa bed during the day? Is the sofa bed in the way when it is opened? Or can you still walk pretty freely without disturbing the person in the bed at night? If anyone has any photos on an Oasis class ship with the sofa bed open, that would be helpful. Thank you in
  19. Can anyone tell me the bed placement of these two cabins on the Symphony of the Seas . 14182 and 14184. Thanks so much.
  20. I hope everyone enjoys this “normal” cruise question 😁 Contrary to our usual “Cruise budget”, we are considering the Unlimited Dining Package. We are booked on Oasis, Allure, and Symphony in the next year. Prices for the Unlimited Dining Package only vary by $10 per person. Which ship would you choose to splurge on the Unlimited Dining Package? I will appreciate any input from those who have experience with specialty restaurants. Our usual “stingy” (ahem frugal😉) budget does not allow for this splurge, but we decided to try it one time on one of the BIG ships. We
  21. Which end cabins have best view of Aqua Theatre ? The cabins that end with X329, X729? Which deck is best, Anyone have any pictures to share? As I understand it the slide may be in the way?
  22. I am set to sail 8/29 on Symphony. It is hard to tell but the ship looks half empty when I browse around at cabins. Ultimately, I guess this sailing will be cancelled. My final deposit is due 5/31, so I will just ride it out until then. Who knows what restrictions will be on cruising that early. If this sailing goes forward, will it be strange having 50% capacity? My friends and family think I am nuts to cruise now.
  23. Being hunkered at home has me thinking about our next tropical vacation! We've done Disney for our last 2 cruises and want to change things up. We want to do a western caribbean cruise to Mexico. During the time frame that we're looking at, Oasis of the Seas and Symphony of the Seas are going to the same ports. The only difference is cost - Symphony is about $1800 more. Our kids will be 7, 11 and 13. Both ships offer a lot of great activities for the kids, family and adults. I'll be doing some more research in the coming days, but wanted to get your opinion on your likes/dislikes of each s
  24. https://www.miamiherald.com/news/business/tourism-cruises/article241637751.html Symphony of the Seas had a medical evac of a crew member today 3/30.
  25. If it's Spring everywhere but Canada, that must mean that we just had March Break - and you know what THAT means. It means that it was cruise time again for me and the Jellybean! You may remember us from such critically acclaimed reviews as 'Freedom of the Seas 2016', and 'Oasis 2018'. Well, after two long years of waiting, we finally cruised a ship that wasn't even BUILT yet when we booked her, the mighty Symphony. This is not a live review, obviously, but I promise to take you from start to finish, with all the highs and lows and in-betweens. You'll laugh, you'll sigh heavily,
