  1. Those are some awesome pictures! I’m following along to get new ideas for our 2nd Alaska cruise in 2021. So far, I like your choices!
  2. What is particular was bad about it?
  3. I appreciate your responses! Looks like I made a good choice with a port side cabin. Since we’re on Deck 9 we’ll take elevators up and walk down to wherever we need to go. A little exercise is never a bad idea. Thanks! ,
  4. Sounds like a good start to our cruise! We will be heading north in NZ..Dunedin to Bay of Island. Thanks for answering!
  5. We just booked a NZ cruise on Ovation of the Seas for Oct. 2020. We booked a balcony on the port side. Is this the better view leaving Sydney and cruising up the New Zealand coast line? Or does it matter?
  6. Thanks for the review! We’ve been on Anthem and just booked Ovation for a New Zealand cruise for Oct. 26, 2020. We did like the Anthem, so am happy to hear the positive comments about Ovation. Do you think there is a “better” side of the ship in viewing Sydney as you leave and along the coast of New Zealand? Port or Starboard?
  7. We were on the March 15 sailing. It was our third time on Navigator. The second time was out of Galveston and I was not impressed. This time - it is totally a different ship! It had a fun vibe. I really liked what they did to it!! We thought the staff was the most friendly and helpful of any cruise we’ve been on. I would highly recommend it.
  8. We have plans for the beach on this day also, so no interest in an island tour. We just wanted to add the Aloe factory in as something else to do, because we do have an interest in it. We just weren’t sure of the best mode of transportation to get there.
  9. Crewsweeper, thanks for the information suggesting the taxi might be the best option.
  10. We’ll be on Royal Caribbean Navigator in a couple of weeks and have a stop in Aruba. Is it possible to visit the Aloe Vera Factory on our own? Take a bus? I know we’d have to walk some after the bus. Walk the entire distance? What would the cost of a taxi be and would a taxi be easily available for the return?
  11. Thanks for doing the review! We’ll be sailing Navigator on March 15, so interested in reading your thoughts on the changes and the island stops, as this is a new itinerary for us. Also interested in what you think of the inside room, since we’ll be inside on deck 8. Happy Sailing!
  12. Looking forward to your review! We want to book the Ovation for the fall of 2020 as soon as bookings become available,,,hopefully in March.
  13. Thanks for the answers!! Looks like it will all come out the same no matter which option I choose. I’ll choose shared so my husband thinks he is getting a bargain, too. 😉 fyree39, yes, this is a BofA credit card.
  14. I logged in to B of A to redeem my reward points for $$ off our cruise. It has an option for “individual” or “shared”. What is the difference?
