Balcony is well worth the $$$

There's nothing like being able to sit on the balcony in the morning with coffee (from room service) while getting ready for breakfast. There's nothing like watching the sun sitting on the waterline...

Not just Wine on AOS

Last summer on AOS, the Plat, D, and D+ party had more than wine. They had several specialty drinks on trays being served by waiters. I don't know if this is every cruise, but we've had a choice on...

Platinum

The good news is: We had a special line and a special waiting room.
The bad news is: There were so many Platinum members boarding at the same time as us, the "special" line didn't make any...

Some Answers

Toiletries: You can pack whatever size toiletries you like on the ship. It's the airline that has the restrictions.

Snacks: Cookies are baked and served fresh (and free) in several places on the...

Dolphin Swim at Blue Lagoon

We had previously been to Nassau and weren't planning to get off the ship. We did the Blue Lagoon Dolphin Swim and it was FABULOUS! You don't have enough time to enjoy the beach for very long, but...

Cabin attendants will bring more, but

We always throw a few of the wire hangers in, just so we don't have to wait to get things put away in the closet on hangers. A few things we just put on the hangers, fold them and lay them in the...

Don't bring them

Pool attendants will check them out to you. You can also get them for shore excursions to the beach, etc. The charge, if you lose one, is $20, but well worth the risk not to (1) use valuable luggage...

Soda card

The price for teens (up to 18) is a good deal. The individual canned drinks are around $2.25 each so the break even point is more than 2 a day. Since you have to pay for a soft drink, even at dinner,...

Always with a TA

Our TA is great. We get OBC from the cruiseline, plus the TA and gifts like wine. He always makes sure we get the cabins that are exactly what we need, takes care of price drops and makes sure we...

Me TOO!!!

We always do the "after holiday" clearance. I shoot for black, since I can coordinate it with 2 different looks easily and I go for a cocktail dress instead of long formal. Works perfect on formal...

Same here with Zip Lock baggies

Also, I make my list differently now. On a sea day, I give myself a dinner outfit on the list but since I'll be at the pool, I can list swimsuit/coverup and by having a cover-up that looks like a...

Here's my packing tip

Zip-lock bags. We discovered this a few cruises ago and now it is impossible to pack without them. I have a list with each day and what we need for that day. We use the snack size for any jewelry, Qt...

It's the airline, not the cruiseline

I think someone mixed up the airline vs cruiseline on this issue. We've never had a problem with the cruiseline.

Bag Special

They also have a "bag special" during the week. It's all you can fit into a plastic bag (size similar to a tote bag with drawstring). It's $25 and you can stuff lots of underwear, t-shirts, shorts...

2. Walking onto the ship and "WOW" moment.
3. Midnight Buffet Amazement (and photos, photos, photos)
4. Waking up to a...

Travel Agent made offer and withdrew

RCCI didn't make the offer and apparently the TA should never have made the offer either. When you originally booked, you were happy with your choice. It must be disappointing to think that you...

I've met more responsible, respectful parents with children than elderly on cruise ships. Case in point is the number of rude remarks on this thread regarding parents and children. Again, let me...

How about a poll for a cruise w/o Elderly?

"those kind of people" from the guy who works for a cruiseline. We are middle class with occupations such as police officers, teachers. We use a mass market cruiseline (RCCL) to cruise once each...
