Just noticing traditional dining is 5:15  5:30 and 7:45.  Not 5 and 7:15 as advertised.

Yes, as we signed up for 8:15, 7:45 is at least reasonable...

I love your reviews!  How are you liking the food in the MDR?  I know it's subjective, but just wondering.  Thanks.

Only been lunch so far, but the beef tenderloin was excellent.

Your live review is just adding to my excitement.  We board on the 29th for New Years, I'm really hoping we have the new beds!!

Yes, I should have asked you a few days into the cruise!

Barbi McCulloch is a tremendous vocalist.

 

We were onboard Royal last cruise and her one showtime in the Vista Lounge (10:00) had two standing ovations.  People were giving her individual standing ovations between songs and the line to talk to her afterward was more than twenty minutes long.

 

You should most certainly see her show if you can.  She's also the guest soprano for Encore and her Queen of the Night aria was flawless.  

 

Definitely do not miss Encore with her as the soloist or her show.  I've been lucky enough to see her on two ships.

Got called to the naughty room for the power bar in our suitcase that does NOT have a surge protector. Once they saw it, it was fine, other than a waste of time. Tip: put power bars in your carry-on instead.

I guess its good they have a safety first approach and they aren't just looking for hidden booze.

Lunch 2.0. (I won’t mention lunch 1.5 of a hot dog and fries...)

Love your reviews and am following along!

Thanks for the tip on the power strips, we always pack ours and have never been to the naughty room but won't take that risk anymore. Who needs that time suck when you are on a cruise?!?

The terminal personal will take it regardless.

They don't care, if it looks like a surge protector even though its not they will take it.

I would pack it.

At least onboard you can plead your case to security.

In the terminal they will give a receipt to pick up on disembarkation day.

Nice start! We were on the Nov. 24 sailing right before the mini dry-dock. I will be excited to hear of the changes coming forward!

 

Bon voyage!

The best place to watch ships leave Ft. Lauderdale: the jetty at the end of Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park. It looks like it’s been repaired from the hurricane damage.

MDR Dinner was average. Our request for a table of eight was not honored, so we had gone to see the maitre d’ earlier to switch tables. I forgot the menu pics, but here are some of the dishes. The soufflé was excellent.

I recognize Jo from the Regal last year.  I'm also wondering, have they rolled out the 17 new craft & international beers on the Royal yet?

Moving along at a good speed of 21 knots. Seas are calm. Beautiful evening.

The TV map was only enabled two days ago.  That and the weather app were both down for the first 6 days of our cruise due to glitches from the change out of the TVs and the installation of OM.  I really missed it as I like to check our progress.  Enjoy!

Completely agree.  She was amazing but I also thought that the other vocalists seemed to all be wonderful and a notch above what we've experienced on other cruises.
