  1. In the process of booking our flight home to the USA from Sydney arrival port. This will be after a 19 day Transpacific Cruise starting in Hawaii, with our trip starting on 5 days before pre-cruise. Overall a long time to be away from home. Looking for your input if it is worth the stopover in Auckland for a day or two (the connecting city for Air New Zealand back to the USA)? We are already staying a couple of days in Sydney post arrival. I typically become Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz feeling by the end of the trip, 'there is no place like home', but I also don't want to miss the opportunity if its worth the extra time and $$$. Advise also if two full days and nights are enough time in Sydney post arrival.
  2. What is the latest you have had to wait for your room assignment on a ‘Guarantee Junior Suite or Better’ to be given? No rooms in the suite or regular balconies categories are showing available online. Sailing is Feb 10 out of Miami. We have never sailed without things locked down at the time of booking. They assure me when I called the Guarantee shows the category type, but they cannot give a date certain for issue. Have you had to wait until the day you board and are they giving out on first come, first serve? Are they waiting on any last minute cancellations from those currently booked/paid? When do TA’s release their unsold or cancelled room blocks back to RCCL? I am assuming/guessing that is how it works. Have you ever gotten a room less than the expected Guarantee category or in a scum location? Or can we expect Unicorns and Rainbows? Are they holding back to wait for the JS to surface and not the ‘or better’ category? Does all this vary by ship or is this a Corporate function that manages all ships? Thanks for your guidance and information on your experience.
