  1. I still cannot cancel an old water purchase. If this is not a temporary website issue, I can call to cancel?
  2. Although there was an email today saying the sale was continuing, today’s prices for all of the shore excursions are higher than yesterday.
  3. I have the same issue with the water package. Last night I was able to book the lower priced package but I have not been able to cancel my old package.
  4. Can you ask for a different combo of the capsules in a suite? We will have three adults and none of us will want decaf. Thanks
  5. You still had to have an at home test before the cruise? You didn’t have to upload that?
  6. We all filter what we see with our own emotions and interpretations. Our minds need to interpret what we see. Unfortunately, the family might not be able to emotionally accept what we see. If RC is not to blame then the reality of what the grandfather did might be too much for them to handle now and possibly always.
  7. In April we ended up having two days in Nassau after our CocoCay stop was cancelled. On the first day we walked to Junkanoo Beach. We were on guard since we had heard about safety concerns. We walked to the beach and stopped in a couple of shops on the way back to the ship. The next day we had a walking brewery tour. I felt very safe on that tour and I highly recommend it.
  8. I booked the escape room on the app during lunch in the Windjammer on embarkation day.
  9. I don’t know if that is true. I contacted an MEI agent for my first cruise. I did not get the referral here but found her on a Disney TA list that noted she also could help with RCL. I never had to contact her about price decreases, they were always done automatically. As far as she was concerned I was just a new client, but I have booked with her again based on my first experience.
  10. I booked all my excursions and my drink package last year on the Black Friday sale. I booked my cruise 14 months out and for my cruise Black Friday was the best discounts.
  11. I was on the Anthem last April. My husband does not travel with me, and I call him every day. I bought the voom package. I was able to call him every day. The WiFi was very spotty with my iPhone, and it dropped the call often, but I did call. I also FaceTimed him a couple of times. Once , the WiFi was so annoying I used minutes at sea.
  12. If I am remembering correctly, they was a towel stand as we were leaving the Anthem for our shore excursion. You could oiscknone up on your way off the ship, and return it as you boarded.
  13. Thanks, I want to book 2020 and this is interesting.
  14. I signed up for it through the Royal IQ app in April while eating lunch on embarkation day.
  15. Welcome @Randy! I am sorry you forgot to make your payment! I have a great TA from MEI that makes sure I never make that mistake! I can refer her if you’d like?
  16. I too wear a release lanyard at work. Where would you see a release being needed?
  17. My TA sent me something like this for my Anthem Cruise https://www.amazon.com/Waterproof-Dustproof-Businesses-Stationery-King/dp/B01M0IFY2A/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1536513768&sr=8-2-spons&keywords=waterproof+lanyards+for+cruise&psc=1 I never had to remove my sea pass.
  18. Have you looked at the Main Dining room menus or any recent trip reports? In April we were on Anthem. We ate in the MDR 6 out of 7 nights. I prefer steak or seafood for dinner and Si was perfectly happy with the choices. I also ate in the MDR for breakfast and lunch on multiple days.
  19. I am new to cruising and I do have an upcoming Disney cruise booked. I will be honest, I am hoping to be a Disney travel agent ( just for fun) when I retire and a few agency have a requirement that you have been on a Didney Cruise. A few obvious observations: My RCL 7 night cruise was less than a 4 night Disney cruise. This is true even when I add three deluxe drink packages, a cabana on CocoCay, and a brewery tour in Nassau. Of course, if I wanted to book a cabana on a Disney cruise it would cost me three times as much as RCL. This is not a cost I have to worry about since everyone does not have equal access to booking (like RCL) and I will never be able to book a Disney cabana. As a “Disney freak” I am sure I will love my Disney cruise. I honestly cannot wait for it to be complete so I can book my next RCL Cruise.
  20. I will say we had our luggage picked up the night before. By the time we finished breakfast they were calling our number. We walked right out and met a porter that walked us through security . It was very easy and seemed to get us through the shortest line.
  21. I walked to Junkaroo last April. At the beach they will ask if you want to rent chairs, umbrellas, or have some food. They accepted “ no thank you”, right away. I would not call it dirty, and many people spent the day there. It was fine for a free, short beach stay. If I wanted a full day beach stay I would most likely go somewhere else.
  22. I am going to jump in here. I contacted MEI for a couple of reasons, mainly because I knew absolutely nothing about cruising, and they support this site. I booked about 14 months before my cruise. I received about 6 emails before my trip: I found you a better price. Those price drops ranged from $30 with onboard credit, to over $300. I did not book with MEI because I expected anything extra. I actually booked a second cruise before the first, and I am waiting for the next large release to book another. Although I did not ask or expect anything, my agent sent me lanyards, a portable phone charger, pens, and a $50 onboard credit. I just post that to say, if that is important to you ask. It is not to me. It came as a complete surprise. The level of service I received was amazing, and I think I should be sending her gifts.
