  1. That has been our experience on Freedom this week and last. Also, not necessarily delivered to correct section of ship. (Correct deck but starboard rather than port)
  2. We have heard there is a new policy fleet wide that requires any wanting to do the stand up surfing must do the boogie board first. You are required to get a white band and do the boogie board once and then they will give you the blue band for stand up. Has anyone else heard this? Apparently new policy recently implemented. It is in effect on FR. Anyone else on another ship now that can confirm (or deny) that this new policy is felt wide?
  3. There have been a few summers over the last 20 years that RC left SJU without a ship. Most years there is one ship there during the summer...but not always! Agree. Flight prices have increased dramatically over the last 3 or 4 years. We are looking at switching our 2020 and 2021 sailings to depart FL rather than SJU for that very reason. Sad because we love SJU and much prefer the islands you get to from there....but comparing airfare/cruise fare we can do FL cheaper and have a newer ship!
  4. From all of the posts here and the press releases, it looks like SJU won’t have a ship over the summer. That is very sad news if it is true. St. Maarten is usually early or late in a sailing from SJU so Weds doesn’t sound likely for ship out of SJU.
  5. Thank you so much for the fabulous info you always provide. Does Venice have any 2021 schedules out yet?
  6. Has anyone done the “Eggfast”? I had never even heard of it until this week. If you have done it, how much did you lose? How often did you repeat it? What was your favorite “egg recipe”?
  7. Jan....I am the same...down 0.6 this week and down 0.6 last week. Wish it were more but happy it is a down. It it has been awhile since I have checked in, As of this date last year, I had lost 70+ lbs (over a 2 year period I think). Then we hit cruise season, holiday season, other travel season....and I gained. I had gained 17 lbs back by August. So mid-September I decided I had to get back seriously on program! (Since all of my “seasons” start again at Thanksgiving. ) So, I have lost 6 of the 17. I am still struggling with the food demons but trying to take each meal one at a time! Thanks for letting me “be accountable”. Belle....always great to see your creative writing!
  8. Even when I can/could do them online, they rarely showed up,on the ship. Mr. Ski almost always had to them onboard again even though we had done them online.
  9. We have never paid attention to the RC Black Friday sales as we are usually traveling. What is typically included? Just beverage packages? Dining packages, shores, spa, etc? Actual cruise fares? For the “Cruise Planner” type items, is it typically all cruises or just ones within a certain timeframe? What has has been your experience / memory? Thanks.
  10. Agree Royal is famous for not putting info out timely. There have been numerous occasions where I read info here on CC and pass it on to my TA before RC sends it to her. She MIGHT get a 24 hour or 20 minute heads up on new releases but most of the time NOT. RC might announce new ports/itinerary briefly before opening bookings but not much ahead of time. It can happen....but you can’t count on it! I agree the TAs “should be alerted” but it just doesn’t usually happen.
  11. Thank you so much Madflyer! You always provide awesome information! I greatly appreciate you sharing!
  12. Thanks. Thanks. Typo on my part. I meant 2021. Thanks so much! Report post #595 Posted yesterday at 12:46 PM I appreciate all of your info!!!! Thanks. So looks like "no" Athens from early June until early September. Interestting. Thanks to all!!!!
  13. Have any of you "techie" folks "figured out" what dates Odyssey is scheduled for some of the Med ports in summer of 2022. I would love to get a rough idea of what dates and what ports. Thanks!
  14. Yes, I am “assuming” that also. Just thought maybe others were reading port schedules might have a better “guess”. Thanks.
