I know what you mean about the ice. I HAVE to have ice with my diet coke. Our steward was good about leaving us ice. But that once a day rule is silly. I also miss the razor, lotion, etc. that they used to have in bathroom - just less stuff to pack.:thumb We were actually thinking of going to go on the Carnival Legend next year because I have wanted to see Belize and Roaton (sp) but then RCL decided not to do the partial transit after April of this year so we went with the Jewel in order to get the partial since a 14day is harder to schedule. I am looking forward to the Jewell but we really think Carnival food is better but service on RCL is better. Right now we book by itinerary.
