  1. And YES the baby in the photos is staying home..... 👍🐍Just like the other question, family going on Feb 13 Independence to Cozumel and back, so that is a closed loop cruise, 6 kids 26 - 28 getting off the boat renting RTV’s etc. (yes, I and hubby are staying ON the boat, LOL). Do we need passports... I hate to ask a similar question, but it would be lovely for the poor kids did not have spend the extra. $ , they will never use a passport again They all work so hard , and of course, have bills beyond belief, I am paying for their cruise, they are really good kids, I am blessed....Thank you friends....
  2. I know Gold Card Suite passengers are offered a made to order breakfast in Chops on Independence of the Seas. Is there a made to order lunch for suite guests in Chops or is it just a sitting area to eat your Windjammer meal?
  3. Hi were going on a 3 night on Independence of the seas end August from Southampton just a couple of ? Do they have a kettle? Do they have tea bags , coffee in rooms? What plug sockets do the have is it US ones? Our first time on RC. Thanks
  4. My fiancé and I have decided for our honeymoon for the Independence of the Seas Oceanview Balcony. I am really nervous to book because I want to make sure that room 8564 has sliding balcony doors for the view. I searched and searched online and can’t find the answer. If anyone has stayed in this room and can answer and/or has any insight we would greatly appreciate it!!!! Thank you! 😀
  5. I am sailing this weekend on Independence of the seas to celebrate my dad's 70's birthday with my family of 4 incl 2 small kids, my parents and a brother, total 7 of us. We had cruises with other cruise lines but all first time with RCCL. I have done some research but couldn't find all the answers and would like to get some help. Your comments on any of following will be greatly appreciated! 1. We are staying in suites and just got a message from concierge as a reply of my question, if there are any specific nights that MDR is recommended over specialty restaurants (because my parents are not huge fan of buffet and probably will go either specialty restaurant of MDR for dinners). The concierge recommended MDR on formal nights which is 3, 10 and 13th day. I was wondering if there is any difference in themes or ambiance on each formal nights or is it pretty much the same? Any other nights do you recommend to stay in MDR ? 2. I am trying to arrange celebration dinner in one of the specialty restaurants or on chef's table (I guess it is table in MDR?) Which one would you recommend and do they do birthday cakes or anything for the special occasion? 3. Concierge said that there are reserved seats in the shows for suite and diamond/pinnacle guests and advised to arrive 15mins before the show. Is it usually competitive or easy to get a seat? I wonder how early I should arrive to get a seat safely. I guess it is full ship on this sailing as in the middle of school hols. 4. Concierge confirmed that there are no bed guards available. I am planning to put my 2 kids(4 and 8) in the king bed to share or one each in single beds, but little bit worried about 4 yrs old as I will be sleeping in different room. I have fordable bed guard at home, would it be worth to carry it? Thank you!
  6. rotation on Harmony. I also included Allure but need verification. When is Anthem's next turnaround date? That should be a rotation date for her as well.

  7. In the next seven months, I will earn an Oasis and Majesty that I need. I am also working on a trade for Rhapsody. Those 3 will get me to 23 . What I will still need are the Empress, Independence, Legend, Quantum, Sovereign, Spectrum and Splendour. .
  8. On Indy at the moment- Captain Iv still on- spoke to a member of staff who isn’t sure if Captain Teo is coming back on Independence- they think he is moving on.
  9. That's great,I meant hope you had a great time. We were on Independence of the seas and went to Zeebrugge at the end of May
  10. On Independence in May we booked on board and our Giovanni's bill showed no gratuity added. I always give $10 minimum cash tip regardless because the service deserves it.
  11. onboard IOS now and before sailing I struggled to find pictures of the new suite lounge so here are some!
  12. Just please keep in mind that you are on a ship with thousands of strangers. Just because folks are on vacation does not make it a safe environment. We have done many many cuises with our daughter and we have all had loads of fun BUT you cannot give children that age independence on a ship and assume they will be safe. There are all of the same crimes as there are in cities.
  13. Hi all, We will be sailing in March on Independence of the Seas in cabin 9640 which is the center hump balcony cabin on the port side. Anyone have any thoughts they can share about this cabin? I think Liberty and Freedom of the Seas are the same class of ship for anyone who has sailed on her sister ships. Thanks!
  14. Hi were going on Independence of the seas for 3 nights end Aug , have no onboard spending. If we link our Halifax clarity card to our account and are billed in usd I'm I correct in thinking we would get conversion charges? Also if we are people from another cabin onto our card does the final statement have the cabin numbers on it ? So we can sort who spent what?I Thanks
  15. Hi Everyone I am wondering about the Diamond Lounge. Sailing in April 2020 on Independence and will have just turned Diamond. Is there food ? Drinks ? Open all day ? Thanks for any information or comments. ☀️🌴
  16. Independence of the Seas & Liberty of the Seas
  17. Quick question. We’re sailing at the end of Nov and wonder if anyone knows what time the hot tubs close in the Solarium (if they close at all) ? We know they definitely close down the pools at a certain time but not sure about the hot tubs. Thank you!
  18. I have a dilemma and wonder if anyone has any advise. I am looking at Indi cruise ex Southampton on the 26September. This is an extra sneaky cruise, have really used up our quota for this year so would be doing this on the cheap. The UK website still shows over 200 rooms available. Do you think the price may come down after final payment with this large number of capacity? Final payment here in UK is at 57 days out which would be July 31st. The dilemma is that I have GBP200 of Tesco vouchers to use which would knock GBP600 off the price but the terms and conditions to use Tesco vouchers state that the cruise has to be booked and paid for no later than 56 days before departure, so a very small window Any advise from anyone who has done late bookings after final payment when there is still a lot of rooms available? We were going to do a land touring holiday in Europe, but if I can get the price down hubby may go for another cruise thanks for any advise Sue
  19. We're just doing a 3 night cruise in August our first in RC, really like to do the Escape room can it be booked before or once on the ship? We have booked the Sky pad is that all that can be booked ? Want to try and get most things done as will everyone else. How does it work once onboard? Also the Laser what's your experience of doing these t things Thanks
  20. rotation on Empress, Mariner, Serenade, Liberty and maybe Harmony if they did a 10 week rotation (has Capt Johnny posted on Twitter that he's back?)

  21. We've just done a cruise on the Jewel in June and away again on her in October and IMHO she's perfect for Europe! Having done Navigator, Independence and numerous Oasis class cruises she was surprisingly roomy and not at all busy in the usual places like the WJ/pools etc
  22. Is this only on Independence? Just wondering what the show is on Explorer of the Seas, leaving Southampton 31.08.19.
  23. Hi going on the independence of the seas in October just wondered who is the cruise director really hoping it’s Joff who was on last year he was one of the best ones.Any info would be appreciated.
  24. I understand these 2 BR grand suites located in the aft of the ship were previously one larger suite (Presidential maybe)? My question is because these suites are essentially one very large suite split into two large suites, is there an advantage of one side vs the other? From what I can tell on Youtube, aside from the differences in the layout (for example, where the master is located), the two cabins on each aft seem similar. The only exception is looking at the balconies for 6416 and 6716 where the port side cabin has a bar, and the starboard side cabin has a hottub left over from the one huge balcony for when the two were one large cabin.
