  1. I was booked on this cruise in April ‘22 but canceled it a few days ago because of the high cost of airfare. If this cruise sails, maybe these ports will become more frequent stops on Southern Caribbean cruises.
  2. I’m not paying for a test that I can get for free at home. My next cruise is on Sunday Nov 14th. I plan to schedule the earliest test time on Friday. I always get my results the next day. Even though I’ll fly in on Saturday, I’ll still be able to get the email and hopefully the hotel will print it for me.
  3. What in the world is an “early bird” premium? Depending on how quickly a flight books up, buying early is sometimes cheaper than waiting and visa versa. I’ve often saved quite a bit booking earlier. The earlier you book flights to Europe, the better.
  4. This hasn’t resumed since Covid. However, before Covid, Miami wasn’t one of the ports that offered valet. Ports offering it were Ft Lauderdale, New Jersey, and Seattle.
  5. I did; out of Southampton. I’m also sailing on Anthem in November.
  6. I’m booked on Allure over New Years Eve and very few cabins are available; no balconies at all. I wonder if they hold back 50% or if this is such a popular time to cruise that they we will sail close to capacity? I’ve been on 3 cruises so far since sailing started again with about 20% capacity on all and loved it!
  7. Grenada is the best place to purchase vanilla. It’s known as the “spice island”. My parents told me a long time ago that they could smell vanilla from the ship after arriving in Grenada.
  8. I’m not a fan of the bathtub/shower combination but can maneuver over the high “wall”, even though I have a major knee problem and walk with a cane. However, if I’m able to either book a grand suite or Royal Up to one, I’ll do it every time. I love going to Coastal Kitchen for breakfast and lunch! I also love the extra room with a somewhat separate living room.
  9. Ive been able to request it on a day other than 1 or 2. Just ask the crew members walking around the ship after you board. It doesn’t appear on my bill until the day I actually eat in the restaurant.
  10. I answered this on your other thread posting. You’ll be able to take a test on the ship.
  11. There shouldn’t be any problem getting a test for travel. We were on Anthem out of Southampton last week and they offered tests to anyone who needed one for travel. A notice was in the Cruise Compass. We had ours the day before disembarkation and had our results that evening.
  12. I’ve been on 3 cruises since June and haven’t seen any chilled soup on the MDR menus. I wonder if the poster who referred to beef Wellington meant beef tenderloin. I haven’t seen beef Wellington on a menu for at least 5-6 years.
  13. Rack of lamb never disappoints. I also love the vidalia onion tart and pumpkin soup.
  14. We just booked Hampton Inn and Suites.
  15. I was on the same cruise and totally agree with all but one of your comments. I’m not a Windjammer fan but I absolutely hated it on this cruise. My 3 attempts to find something I liked were unsuccessful. I’m not a fan of Mexican food but that’s all I saw. Every staff member we encountered was wonderful. Our stateroom attendant was one of the best we’ve ever had in 40 cruises. Never had any problems that weren’t immediately addressed.
