  1. My wife works for NYU but her office is in Bellevue Hospital. She has seen a naked man run past her a few times with security chasing him. She still goes to work everyday. When we were on a Princess tour my 13yr old son was solicited drugs and a prostitute solicited me in front of my wife. It was a Princess tour but I didn't hold the cruise line responsible. I was upset about the drug deal but we laughed over the prostitute. I was a unique experience. The only way to see Jamaica is if you are locked in at one of their resorts.
  2. Sounds like a typical day in Jamaica right down to the naked man. We were there once on a Princess cruise and will not book any itinerary that calls on Jamaica. With that said you should be compensated for the broken bus. Over the years I have been disappointed with ship sponsored excursions. We do research either through CC roll calls or on other travel sites. Private excursions are 1/2 the price of what the cruise line charges and are better quality.
  3. For $1600 they should. Auto correct is my worst enemy
  4. We didn’t spend a dime on Labadee but we also had a drink package. We went to the beach and used the free lounge chairs and umbrellas. However we weren’t sitting in them for long as we were floating on the blow up rafts that we purchased at the dollar and up store at home. They were $5 each. We also brought a hand pump to blow them up. When we were done for the day we just tossed them in the garage. We at lunch at the BBQ buffet provided by Royal Caribbean.
  5. Upscale china, silverware and glassware??? Upscale from what? Paper plates, Dixie cups and plastic utensils? It's standard restaurant quality at best.
  6. Actually it is the roaring 20's in a sense that change is happening in the modern world. Victorians in their bustles, spats and high neck collars can't accept it.
  7. That's what my in laws say. My MIL also says another house up for sale when ever she hears an ambulance siren.
  8. As hard as I try to make a purchase I can never find anything on board that I can't get at home for less money. I'm not interested in being a billboard for Royal Caribbean by wearing anything with a logo and with technology being what it is I can take thousands of pictures that get stored in the cloud and don't even have to print them. They are with me all of the time since they are taken with my phone. These are all the memories I need. If I drove to port I will bring home liquor. I don't bother if I fly because the difference in price isn't enough to compensate for the extra weight in the bag. At this point in our life we are looking to eliminate clutter so we are not looking to purchase more crap made in China

  10. Forget about the Bahamas I don’t want to get on a cruise ship that calls at Port Canaveral. The only Florida port of call I would accept is on a reposition cruise that calls on one of the ABC islands.
  11. The NRD or booking Gty rates look great until something like this happens. If I can’t afford the category without a special rate I just book the one I can afford at a higher price. I would rather be in an interior than booking a suite and being down graded to a obstructed view. My guess is they are filling these guarantee rooms with Royal up bidders. Can’t believe this happened twice.
  12. They have cream? I would rather have that. 1/2 and 1/2 is the standard at restaurants.
  13. I think the Oasis class is great for families with all of the activity and entertainment. It wouldn't be my choice for a longer cruise as the sea and itinerary is why I cruise and the Oasis class doesn't provide those goals. I don't need a 9 to 12 day shopping /restaurant experience. There is plenty of that at home.
  14. I have severe osteoarthritis in my left hip so no Hoverboard for me. Maybe the oil would be of benefit. I have a surgical consult next week for a hip replacement maybe after that I can look into the Hoverboard. 😁
  15. I guess since you used the word refunded I miss interrupted it. So it's a $100 penalty with a credit for the remainder that expires 1 yr from cancelation date. I guess it would be best to wait until just before final payment even if you know you have to cancel sooner in order to extend the time to book a new cruise.
