"Live" - Aloha - Rhapsody of the Seas 5 September 2014 - Hawaii Bound

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

Well it has been 10 long months but Marie and I are heading back to sea. Daybreak tomorrow we head up to Vancouver to board Rhapsody and begin our cruise to the Hawaiian Islands. We did the same cruise in September 2012 but on Radiance. In fact we originally booked Radiance again for this year but the opportunity to do an overnight in Lahaina and go to the Old Lahaina Luau was too tempting so we jumped ship. (Thank you to the website that was kind enough to post these pictures that I "borrowed").

Here is our itinerary for our eleven day cruise. I love taking the route towards the islands because it starts with 5 days at sea where I can disconnect from work and everything else. :)

The ship has unlimited WiFi so it should be fun to report. :D

Looking forward to your report, Bill! Safe travels to you and Marie---the unlimited Wi-Fi package definitely makes for an easier live reporting experience!

 

An idea on the costs for an 11 day cruise for the package?

Here is a little humor to start out this report. When Royal Caribbean posted this cruise to their website they also posted a map of the itinerary. If you are the least bit familiar with the Hawaiian Islands you will see the problem right away. :p

We did contact Royal and let them know their map was out of whack. They thanks us but never changed it so I assume they used up their map budget for the year. :rolleyes:

 

Anyway, I did a few modifications just for my own peace of mind.

Thanks. :)

Trainman is reporting live from a ten day cruise on Vision and the unlimited for the cruise is $225 so I am hoping $250 for our 11 days.

Anyone know if we get a WiFi discount for Diamond? :confused:

If I recall, the discount was 20% for Diamond when I purchased it on Allure.

I know it was a little more pricey but we so enjoyed the aft balcony two years ago we had to do it again. Even though we arrived to Rhapsody late we still managed to luck into an aft JS.

Of course that means you will have to put up with a lot of pictures like this. :D
