Thank you for posting the video, Chris. It was nice to hear the singing!  I'll be on Explorer until Dec. 22 and am looking forward to seeing the decorating.

 

I've heard Explorer is a lovely ship! Yes I get excited for the holiday decorations every year!

Did you guys see my Labadee video?

 

Which do you prefer, Labadee or Coco Cay?

 

Did you hear the itinerary on Mariner has changed? The 4 day cruise is going to Coco Cay twice now - instead of having a sea day!

Haven't been to CoCoCay yet, so cannot say. However Labadee was nice to say "I went to Haiti!"

All tips go into a tip-pool, and the tips get distributed evenly between that department.

 

You can give tips to specific crew members through guest services.

Many guests have been told cash tips given directly to crew cannot be kept. That they still have to put it back in the pool? Is this true?

They don't have to physically put money in the pool.  Royal assumes they were tipped the standard amount and reflects that in their next paycheck.

Love the video, but I'd probably edit out the schlong and balls suntan lotion gag.

In the casino, yes, any tips we get - we put it straight into the pool. I assume it's the same for all departments, but I can only speak for myself.

I agree with Biker19, a lot smaller than I expected.

 

 

A lot smaller than I expected as well.

Actually pretty spacious compared to many two man cabins I've seen, with two desk areas. And a private bath.

I think it's pretty well in line with what I expected.  A couple of years ago I got a behind the scenes tour of the Amsterdam from their Security Officer (a Cruise Critic friend of mine) when our ships were in port together.  His Officer's cabin was about the same size as yours but he didn't need to share his.  I'm curious, you have the lower bunk which I assume means you were in the cabin first, but he has the 2 big shelves while you only have 2 small ones.  Is that by mutual agreement?

Interesting, thanks for the info.  Makes even standard passenger cabins seem quite spacious!

So if you get an gift (not in in cash) such as a gift card or items from home- would you be able to keep that?

Yes, I was there first. Everyone wants the bottom bunk. Sometimes, we will have an agreement where we will swap beds half way through the contract.

Yes, we can keep these type of gifts. Most of the time, I get candy from guests.

Yeah for sure! I spent a lot of time in my parents cabin when they came on for a cruise during Europe season.
