    Just priced the holiday on Royal Caribbean website. £1687 for three of us,not sure if that includes the drinks package, but we weren't being offered the package yesterday anyway when the agent quoted us £1913 !!! This is for a 3 night break, remember. Glad we booked when we did. £1687 is just under double what we paid. Crazy!!!

    I'm not too keen currently, but will reserve judgement until I have seen exactly how it works
     
    The idea of having to prebook each evenings dining & shows over 6 months before sailing just doesn't sit right for me!
     
    The whole essence of freedom dining, in my opinion, is the flexibility & 'freedom' to do as you please each evening, I don't know 6 months before what I will feel like doing on each evening of my holiday - it just seems to make it all a little formulated and scheduled - not how a holiday should be.

    I think the Sainsbury's advert makes you very humble and proud of those that laid down there lives for our country.

    In respect of the current Rememberance memorials and services taken place, my Dad wrote a little poem which I thought I would share
     
     
     
    As walking throughout this long dark day,
    we remember the price the fallen paid.
    Our debt to them? Our lives and freedom,
    from earth to heaven and out from Eden.
     
    Blooms and blossom, earth and ground,
    no sense or reason have we yet found.
    Lives so wasted, though fully invested,
    Our young soldiers raw cries still test us.
     
    They walked, then ran into their sunset,
    No pause for thought, in coldest sweat,
    As rallying forward, no backward glances,
    To their death, onward march advances.
     
    Today? Once yearly we pause and say,
    Thank you for giving us our peaceful day.
    You are never forgotten, nor left ignored.
    Your sacrifice has seen our lives restored.
     
     
     
     
    Always spare a moment to think of those who gave themselves for us.

    Popsicle thanks for sharing this remembrance poem. It did make me stop and reflect the sacrifices that our young men and women have and in many instances are still making - God bless them.

    I have been close to the limit (or just over but got away with it  ) once or twice, but I am a serial over packer!
     
    I think the allowances are pretty reasonable if I am honest, it is achievable with a bit of careful consideration - something I am clearly not capable of!

    People that sneer at families & children

     

    People that spend the entire evening meal moaning about everything

     

    People that feel the need to gloat about 'how much they paid'

     

    I could go on, but I will refrain!
