Does anybody have a PDF version of the table/seating map for the Da Gama dining room on EOS?

I've never seen a PDF map for any dining room on any Royal ship. Table numbers can change cruise to cruise.

I read on this thread that there is one formal night on a 5-day cruise (we are going to Bermuda).

Which day of the cruise is the formal night? Is it on the first full sea day or another day?

Thanks for your help.

Last year it was on the first full day (Sunday) with the Captain's welcome aboard party

In April it was the first full sea day.

We will doing the 9 night Bermuda/Caribbean cruise on Explorer on July 31st. This is our 6th time on EOS. It will be me, my DD and her little sister from her sorority. It was a spur of the moment booking taking advantage of RCI's BOGO sale. Plus my DD was in Tampa all Summer doing her Marketing Internship and this will be our annual vacation together. I booked a JS to surprise the girls. They think we have a regular AFT balcony cabin. :D

 

Cannot wait to sail on EOS one more time before she leaves NJ. So glad Leigh X. is the CD too. We've sailed with him a few times and know him well. He's a wonderful CD and guy.

 

Looking forward to see the changes at Bayonne since we haven't sailed out of there since 2012. Definitely will take photos of the pier's construction progress to post on CC threads. Happy Sailing!

Can't wait in 27 days it will be our 8th adventure on the Explorer and the last out of Bayonne. Unless she comes back. Wishful thinking. 9 days of fun, food, friends and Mohitos.

Is the Explorer leaving Bayonne permanently?

Anyone know who the current loyalty ambassador is on the Explorer? I am hoping it isn't the same one as our last cruise :rolleyes:

 

This past week it was Natalia (very efficient and accurate booker) and Alex Mangabeira.

 

I had asked my room steward and Natalia about the single serve wines that I never received. Both said they would talk to their manager. Then I got a recorded call from Alex. He said 'you only get 1 amenity'. Yeah I know that. So I don't think he really listened. I went to guest services and Anita fixed it right away.

That's too bad. I've only been on it once but would have liked going again some day.

Too late now! They are changing a lot of things. Quantum will only be here for a little while. Anthem of the Seas will be here just for the winter 2015-2016, then Liberty of the Seas will be in Bayonne to stay.

I think it's time for Ex to move on. Ship is clean but rooms are sorely in need of updating. There was a pervasive musty smell on our floor. I am looking forward to newer ships.

You got that backwards. The Liberty will be in Bayonne for winter 2015-2016 . The Anthem will be in Bayonne when Liberty leaves.

Yes she is. I love her. I wish she could be refurbished and stay here. We already pay premium prices for cruises from NJ but when Liberty arrives which is 7 or 8 years old we will be paying even more. Not to mention Anthem. We need to keep our Explorer home.

I never fly but I am considering going to Florida to try ships like Oasis of the Sea & Allure etc. I get tired of the same ports leaving from the N.Y. area.

Yes, the ports are limited. We do this cruise mostly out of convenience as we hate flying.

Realistically, I don't know how much more they can get for Liberty. Ex in peak season has always been priced high. I am not sure that people would pay even more for a ship that, as you said, is not really brand new.

 

Maybe high to start out but once the novelty wears off prices should come down to normal Ex levels, imo.

The prices for Liberty are much more than the Explorer. We generally travel during peak season because that's the only time school is closed. A Junior Suite is 6 grand for the same cruise we are taking on the Explorer this year. Hopefully it will start high and go down as you stated. So for now we are doing a cruise out of San Juan next year.

"Prior to Explorer of the Seas' arrival in Southampton, she will undergo a ship-wide revitalization that will refurbish much of the ship. This refurbishment will be similar to other refurbishments that have been taking place across Royal Caribbean's fleet."

 

We're on EOS from Southampton in August 2015 therefore interested in the refurbishment. Can anyone expand on "similar to other refurbishments" as this is our fist RCCL cruise.

The ice shows are on sea days. You go to the ice show according to your muster station. It will be listed in the daily cruise compass.

On Explorer, the ice show performance is set by your muster station.

 

Recent movies are shown in the screening room.
