  1. Just another way to make money. I certainly wouldn't use it. And I could understand it going up as the beach became more crowded, but not the other
  2. Check on Craigslist. My wife found hers for $300 which was a steal since it lists for $1200 and was only a year old.
  3. I have 2 sets that i got at IKEA. Not super expensive, but I would do without them now. Small is good for undies, med for T-shirt’s or pj’s, swimsuits. Large for just aboutanything- polo shirts slacks, non hanger items.
  4. Thanks for the opportunity. Not everyone drinks (or can drink) champagne, wine, alcohol. For the gifts, it would be nice to be able to get an OBC for the wine/champagnes or as other posters said, a beach mat, snorkel equip., or other logo materials
  5. Agree with the others about checking the planner and the gangplank signs. Also, remember that digital watches (apple, and others) CAN change to the local time on their own, this is NOT SHIP TIME. The all aboard is ALWAYS SHIP TIME, not local time
  6. DOLLAR TREE - decor and magnets. Build your own and you can personalize it at the same time. Also PARTY CITY for decorations, magnets from Dollar Tree, michaels, hobby lobby, or Walmart
  7. From the travel.state.gov website. The passport card is used for: Entering the United States at land border crossings and sea ports-of-entry from: Canada Mexico The Caribbean Bermuda The passport card cannot be used for international air travel. The passport card is Real IDcompliant and can be used for domestic air travel. so, if you have to fly, you will still need to go to the embassy and wait for clearance. Yes, a passport may seem expensive, but over a 10 year period, it’s only about 15 dollars a year (11 for renewal)... the cost of some drivers licenses or even a movie ticket.
  8. Panasonic lumix is just slightly over $100, but I’ve seen good reviews and it is compact enough to carry in a pocket
  9. Another option could be Evernote. Multiple platforms, can include pictures, more flexibility.
  10. The Mrs. uses a Pride Go Go that we found on Craigslist. Less expensive than new, and it disassembles into 4 pieces. Heaviest parts are the battery and the motor. They weigh about 30 lbs each. Easy to take apart and put together (the grandkids 12 &10 could put it together. Have taken on flights across country with no issues.
  11. If they are on harmony (like allure & oasis), they are available to EVERYONE. They are amazing little view ports into different things. Think of them as a spyglass or microscope into another world. You can get a map(I think) of where they all are at guest services Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. The OP never mentioned if they complained to guest services. The crew on the Flowrider may have done all they could, but when guest services is notified, it’s possible more can be done. Our last cruise two of the elevators In a bank was not working. Reported to guest services and someone was working on them next day. Just proves that you can’t assume someone has reported the issue Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. For a LOT of information about the renovations, checkout royal Caribbean blog dot com. It has a good article about the updates and estimated completion dates Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
