  1. Thank you so much for all of the thoughtful responses. Does anyone have a copy of the vintages wine menu with prices? Also, are tapas available in Vintages on Serenade of the Seas?
  2. This is all very interesting. I didn’t realize that Starbucks gift cards can be used on the ship. Our cruise has six port days and four sea days. Thanks so much for letting me know about the opportunities for “free” drinks. Are the drinks at the top tier event (we are Platinum) free? Thanks again for your help!
  3. Thank you for your responses! I really appreciate all the advice!
  4. We are going on an 11 day Southern Caribbean cruise (yay!) It has been several years since we last cruised and beverage package prices are crazy — over 1200 dollars for the two of us! So..... a few questions: Does Royal offer drink coupons for Crown and Anchor Platinum level members? Are drink coupon “cards” offered on the Serenade of the Seas? Are there any events where free drinks are offered? Art auctions with free champagne, lol? Does anyone know the prices of drinks on the Serenade of the Seas? We are planning to bring two bottles of wine on board. Any other suggestions?
  5. I did a search and couldn’t find the relevant information so... does anyone know of a FLL hotel that offers free parking while we are on our Caribbean cruise? A free shuttle to and from the cruise port would also be great. Thank you.
  6. Can I walk into the old city of Rhodes from the cruise port? I have read that the Avenue of the Knights is a must see, but what else would you suggest? Thank you!
  7. We are planning to do a Rhine River cruise. Which cruise line is preferable -- Avalon or Viking?
  8. We are thinking about booking a cruise on this ship. We will have a toddler (age 15 months) at time of sailing. What pools can the child use? are there any amenities for him?
  9. You may enjoy a balcony cabin-- when you put your little one down for the night , you will be able to enjoy a glass of wine while listening to the sea. In ports, you can visit beaches and enjoy the water with your baby. The lifeguards in the pool area are VERY vigilant about not allowing babies in the pools so any other opportunities to enjoy a beach vacation are great! The best stroller (in my opinion) is an umbrella stroller that reclines. An umbrella stroller will fit in the hallways and the reclining is perfect for napping. Also, as was previously mentioned, be sure to request a pack and play as they have limited number of these cribs. There are mommy and me sessions every day --I never attended one, but they seemed interesting. The nursery on the Allure is wonderful! But be sure to make it your first stop to reserve the hours you want....
  10. Thanks for the advice. Their facebook page is amazing!
  11. Thanks for the reply! It sounds like "Harbor East" is the place to stay!
  12. Thank you for the information! Any recommendations on flavors?
  13. We have reservations at the Marriott in East harbor. Two questions: 1. What is your opinion of the water taxi as a way to see a little of Baltimore the day before our cruise? 2. Any nice dinner restaurants within walking distance of the Marriott East Harbor? We prefer something to give us a local flavor of Baltimore. Thank You!
