  1. Anybody have past experience with special discounts available on Black Friday? We are interested in upgrading without using RoyalUp for our January cruise. Thanks
  2. I would try to change- the accessible rooms, while larger- have features that work for handicapped people- the sinks are much lower, to accomodate a wheel chair as are the closets. The shower is roll in and the water leaks all over the bathroom floor- again perfert for those requiring a wheelchair. Enjoy your cruise.
  3. Many people do not ask for top shelf liquor and get the house liquor.
  4. We will also be on the Oasis in August 2020, with our nephew, his wife and their 10 year old daughter.
  5. Interested in this comparison . We are Elite plus on Celebrity and Diamond on Royal (without the reciprocity) We didn't like Princess as much as Celebrity-found it "plain vanilla" and Carnival- not for us either- Also tried Disney- but it is very overpriced and for a niche market for young children and those who enjoy Disney. NCL IMO is at the bottom of our list-unless you sail in the haven which is very good- but pricey. Thus far- the negative take a way is the smoking policy- that might make me not consider HAL. For now, will stick with Royal and Celebrity.
  6. Unless you are in a suite, you have to reserve all of the shows- If in a suite, only the Comedy club. Not sure what applies to the top tier Royal members.
  7. While you get benefits a listed in other posts, we were in an owners suite on the Adventure of the seas and very disappointed. We love the suite lounges on the Oasis class ship, but on the adventure, it was a makeshift lounge with a portable bar. Not the usual snacks and drinks as on the other ships. No true suite deck, a few chairs in direct sun by the regular pool. We like the hot tub, suite cabanas and bar on the Oasis class ships- Missed a true suite restaurant also. On a positive note the suite was a good size with plently of storage, and we like no reservations and priority entrance to shows.
  8. Also, with the delux drink package- we always tell the bartenders to use "top shelf" liquor. It makes a difference.
  9. We were on the Harmony of the Seas and when we were in Labadee last year, a young man was alledgedly climbing from one stateroom to another and fell! Landed on the dock! People were getting off the ship and looked in horror! Of course he died. What a dumb thing to do! So sad.
  10. While a junior suite is a good sized cabin with a huge walk in closet, bidding on it will actually lessen the likelihood of you getting a true suite that includes great perks. If your jr suite bid is accepted it will cancel out the bid for grand suite or higher. The ship has many more JR suites then the true suites Enjoy your cruise, regardless of which cabin/suite you are sailing in .
  11. Would be great if the bionic bar was changed into a true Martini bar like on the Celebrity ships- (except the edge) The ice top is fun and watching the bartenders prepare drinks a show!
  12. Per room- also if you are in the picture and include others- will be covered for your package. Question- I called Royal and was told not available for my cruise- I used to book directly from mycruisephotos.com but cannot any longer- not out my sailing website yet-
  13. We tried the bionic bar on the Quantum. What a gimmick! Also the drinks were horrible and served in a small paper cup- went on the Harmony and wouldn't try it again- what a waste that is.
  14. I called for our January Cruise and was advised it isn't being offered yet- Perhaps it will prior to our cruise- as it is cheaper then purchasing on board.
