Sonny, I'm not sure how our travel agent booked things. My husband has taken care of everything. I'll have to ask him.
I've been reading some reviews of the Sovereign of the Seas on cruisecritic.com and have a few more questions. I'm sure I'll have more has the reading continues.
What is the "Not so Newlywed Game Show"? Is it on our ship? Is it audience participation? Tell me more please.
Also, what is the Quest Scavenger Hunt? Same things, is it on our ship, etc.
And has anyone done the Yellowbird Party Boat Tour while in Nassau? I've read its 3 hours long and you go to an island for a little r & r, however the critic wrote that you only have about an hour and a half on the island. I'm assuming the 3 hours includes the travel time as well. Is it worth it for the price then?
We just returned from our first cruise on the Sovereign. We loved it. There was a "Love & Marriage" game one of the nights. You had to audition to be a part of it. The questions are fun and like the Newlywed Game - pretty personal. I would have been embarrased to answer some of them!
Me and my hubby just took our 1st cruise in June it was fun but go to your Dr. and have him give you a perscription for the sea sick patch you put behind your ears. We felt the boat rock everyday and I got very sick leaving port canaveral and coming back where tyhe water was more choppy. Don't miss the Quest and the Love & Marriage game they are audience participation and lots of fun. Windjammer food was soso nothing fabulous,drink are made strong, and take your camera w/ you everywhere have fun !!!!
Jenny25 - Thanks for the tips. The first time I had ever gotten seasick/motion sickness was last year in Florida when my husband and went deep sea fishing. It was the worst 5 hours of my life. I'm for sure going to the doctor to get something just to be on the safe side.
I've been reading about the Quest and the Love and Marriage game. Both sound like lots of fun.
We aren't picky about our food and love to eat, so I'm sure we will be happy with everything we try.
We don't drink, so I'm not worried about strong drinks.
And I love taking pictures, so I'll have my camera in hand the whole time. In fact I am going to go buy a 1G memory card for my camera so I can snap away. Now I just wish I had the Canon Digital Rebel, but for now I will settle with my Fuji Finepix camera. It takes really great pics too though.
Smileygirl, if you or your hubby are not drinkers then the Yellowbird Party boat will not be for you. The reason it takes 3 hours is the rum punch starts flowing freely as soon as you take off, you then go to the private island area ..no rum punch there, but on the way back the party starts...most people who do this really have a great time, but the majority of it is drinking and partying.
Blue Lagoon might be more what you are looking for.
Thanks for the tip, Cruise Specialist. Actually my husband and I have opted to do no excursions while in Nassau. Shortly after the ship docks (provided it's on the scheduled time), my husband has a golf tee time set up and we will be heading to the golf course. He's golfer, I'm not. I'm just going along for the ride and to be the photographer. After golf, then we are going to head to Atlantis to look around and then back to the area around the ship to shop and just walk around.
I'll be leaving for my cruise on the 12th of August, and can't wait. My wife and I will be completing our Crown & Anchor membership documents while on board, but I realize that the "credits" for this cruise won't be applied to that membership until this (our first RCCL) cruise is complete. The general idea, from what I understand, is an exclusive membership for prior guests of RCCL. Friends that we're going with have been on two previous RCCL cruises, and I'll let you know what I see as a difference between their ammenities relative to ours. I'm guessing that other than special offers for discounts on future cruises, there may be a few onboard discounts as well... but on cruises booked afteryour virgin RCCL cruise andenrollment into the C&A Society. I'll let you know what I find out.
However, I'm still trying to figure out what "DH" means from your initial post, SmileyGirl... I'm puzzled!
Less than 14 days from now, the limo picks us up for our drive to the airport! I think the kids are equally psyched about the limo as they are about the cruise!
