In order to save a couple bucks and still get a balcony we opted for the Guaranty Stateroom. With Royal Caribbean this means you pay a lower price for a stateroom but you don’t get to choose which one, just the category. In our case we chose the ocean view balcony stateroom, but he had no idea which one we were going to get until the day before we boarded. The fine print says you may not get assigned a stateroom until even the day of boarding.
We arrived at the port before they even began boarding because we were that eager. The 1st thing we did was run straight to the windjammer buffet for lunch and went straight to our stateroom to check it out and we saw a dolphin swimming around in the port!
Here is the tour of our ocean view balcony stateroom – 9570
Day 2 was a sea day and Memorial Day so we explored the ship a little bit and then lounged around the in the pool in the Solarium most of the day. I loved how everyone (including us) wore an american flag something. I had a tank top and the ribbon on my hat, and a lot of people had bathing suits, cover ups, shirts ect. with american flags on it.
We took a picture in front of the Zoltar machine. I don’t know why but this became our thing to take a picture in front of it every time we sail. We never play it, even though I sometimes get tempted to just for fun but, we’ve done it the first 2 times on the Allure of the Seas so now I think we just have to every time!
They offered a special for the specialty dining and we finally gave into the high pressure sale pitches. It was a pretty good deal when you thin about it. We love eating at Chops Grille and that costs about $45 per person for one meal. But for $80 per person we received 3 nights of specialty dining so since Day 2 was formal night we had dinner at Chops Grille that night.
