Cruise - royal caribbean

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

How you do the advance booking for the van services?
You mean the phuket van services? I check at tripadvisor and saw his feedback not bad so I text him and he replied me via Whatsapp.

We just came back last week as well.

The check in process was rather slow. Onboard, some information was not given correctly even when it was printed on the activity paper. There was chaos and confusion on first day.

We didn't get to enjoy the ice skating and rock climbing as the queue were very very long.

Overall I can say it was a good and enjoyable experience esp the kids love it.

Hi,
Is child travel free with 2 paying adults a good deal? (3 adults and 1 child traveling).
Any feedback on the room with balcony? Thank you.

Can. If worried just bring a sweater/jacket along.

Take note to pay attention to the Cruise Compass (daily programme sheet). Usually day 1 have a parade by madacasar characters which will not be repeated.

Go for all the sit down dinners and night shows. In my opinion they are good. But if u missed the shows, it will be repeated on tv in the cabin the next day i think.

I recall there is breakfast with cartoon characters, meaning you can sit close to see their performance. But u need to call to make reservations the day before. First come first serve.

IMO, no need to go for the paid land tours at phuket. Because they will bring u to see nuts factories or temples (waste of time and boring for the kids). Instead, just get free tickets to go ashore, and there are many activities by the beach -- massages etc. Or u can take a short taxi ride to a nearby big mall too (http://www.jungceylon.com/) you can ask the crew about it for more details too. Can go for the facials there which i recall was very cheap.

Nothing much at port klang. We only alight to let kids buy chewing gums..

Hope the above helps.
