Carlene Cruiser,

Ahoy!

A little about Royal in a nutshell. Her ships are excellent, her service is great - there is plenty to do...it is not the "party" atmosphere of carnival but Royal can still "party on". Royal is more upscale than Carnival, but with a great spirit. Royal is not Holland America where they tell me that you could have more fun watching grass grow. Only problem - the food - well it needs some fixing! Oh, well I do not cruise for the food but it really needs improvement.

I sure that you will enjoy your cruise on whatever ship you cruise and
Happy 21st!

Diane

Welcome aboard and the food is just fine! Used to ski in the Butler chain quite a bit. Royal Caribbean is the way to go! 8)

YOu'll love Royal and food is not five star gourmet
but good. If you're a foodie, try Chops or Portofino
if available on your ship.

Welcome aboard. If you love cruising you'll love RCI. Go expecting to have a blast and you will. Where are you going? When are you going and what ship are you on. I saw your Future ticker but my memory is bad.

3 days is a shortie so get onboard early, before noon. Be in your swimsuit and get yourself here! Make a full day of the Friday, do the Yellow bird in Nassau and have a great day at Coco Cay! It will be over before you know it and then you will be planning your next one!

Carlene,

You are lucky, living in Orlando. I live in Texas, and at the moment, we only have one cruise terminal functioning. You have at least 5 to chose from.

I've cruised on RC, Carnival, and Princess. You will have a great time on RC, but it is somewhat different from Carnival. I have loved every cruise I have been on.

Have a great time!!

Yeah living in Florida is great because of all the ports...although I have lived here my whole life and Iam comtemplating moving lol. One sucky thing about florida is the way of thinking with cruises.....Since I live so close to the port I can get good deals because I dont have to worry about airfare, but with that in mind that shortens my "needing" to fly all the way across the US to go somewhere besides the caribbean. So all I ever do is bahamas and Mexico...lol.

All that matters...is it's a vacation~!
