The whole process from begining to end could take up to one year. The wife and I go shopping for supplies, like sun tan block, solarcaine etc about 2 weeks before and one week prior our packed up luggage is sitting by the front door.
So, are you the type of person who prefers a smooth sailing, or a rocky sailing?
a little bit of both.....smooth sailing during the daytime so you can enjoy the sun and poolside, a little rocky at night so you can realize you are still on a ship...plus you get awesome sea legs when you get off the ship in port..
What music do you prefer to hear poolside? A) Piped in radio type B) Steel Drum C) Calypso?
I got hooked on a new drink while I was on board. I wouldn't call it "exotic", but it was new to me. The husband and I hooked up with another couple and they introduced me to the Mojito. Very refreshing and tasty! Of course, I had some of the old favs such as the pina colada, margarita, mai thai, etc...
LOL! I have an embarassing moment for each RCL ship I have been on. One embarassing moment was announcing (rather vocally) that I was about to use the washroom in our room on Voyager when I thought only my sister was at the door, but our room attendant was there as well. On Radiance, I was singing on an elevator and on Serenade just 4 weeks ago, I knocked over the bucket/wine stand thing behind me in the dining room and it made a loud crash and ice went everywhere. Our waiter, our assistant waiter AND the head waiter made sure it was quite a distance away from me the next night!
QUESTION: Can you name all the ships in the Royal Caribbean fleet without checking any other sources (i.e. the website!)
Nope couldn't quite do it. This was my best, and I missed 4.
Adventure, Enchantment, Empress, Grandeur, Jewel, Majesty, Mariner, Monarch, Radiance, Rhapsody, Sovereign, Serenade, Splendour, Vision, Voyager.
What is the most exciting part of a cruise vacation?
Sailed with hubby and 19-year old nephew last year on the Voyager. I already know everything about hubby but learned, the hard way, that dear nephew can't fall asleep unless the TV is on. And we, of course, can't fall asleep unless it's quiet. My patience lasted until day 6; not bad for being with two guys 24/7.
On the Radiance this past May....in Chops....due to the fact that 3 of us were celebrating birthdays that month and one was "along" for the ride...being a January baby! They brought us strawberry desserts, champagne and of course did there singing for us.....we were also celebrating one anniversary in the same group...lots for just 4 people!
Question: If cost were no object, would you opt for the Royal Suite just because or an aft balcony, or a hump room? or pick another.
