  1. Agree! We did this a few years back and it was one of the most fun and invigorating things we have ever done. We always do extensive research and book our own excursions as they are less expensive with smaller groups and often more authentic than those offered through Royal.
  2. Does the MDR accommodate seating requests such as a table for two for breakfast? Also, does breakfast run after 9:00 a.m. in MDR? No early dining on vacation for us!
  3. Though I don’t celebrate Christmas, this photo of this smiling child with his ship makes me believe in elves! Glad it worked out. Namaste.
  4. I second this and would add select ska/reggae/rock steady tunes by The Dualers, the Ska-talites, The Mighty Diamonds and most of the songs on Ziggy Marley’s One Bright Day album. I would also add some old school funk such as Earth, Wind and Fire, Parliament, Ohio Players, Gap Band, etc.
  5. Very good review and I liked that there were no photos - my imagination was put to good use!
  6. The Diamond Lounge, the friendly and funny crew, the perfect sized ship, etc. Plus, Baltimore is a great city within driving distance.
  7. Grandeur for its great location and view and the mini egg rolls we eat only there.
  8. We research and do our own thing in ports. We like art, cultural and historical and just plain quirky things to do. Sadly, the Caribbean is often written off as not having as much “culture” as Europe, Asia, etc. We know better.
  9. Depends on if you like top shelf or the cheap stuff. We are Diamond and very light drinkers so might have 2 drinks on a 12 day cruise. If we want a quality drink, we happily pay for it. As for the possible longer time to board, it is not an issue as we travel light and always have a book.
  10. Actually, I check the dining room menu first and generally opt for the buffet for its superior salad bar and expediency.😊
  11. A gift card to Amazon or his fave local store so he can get exactly what HE wants.
