  1. Thanks for letting me know and calming me a bit @mworkman @tdcackler and @twangster. I am more visual so thanks for that! I did get an email from someone at RCLsaying it has been set up but no instructions on how to access it or ref number. It was just a one liner saying it was set up. I wish there was a way to login and see it on your profile. I will give them a call next week or so and keep it posted. I booked it through RCL online. Thanks again for the help.
  2. I have been emailing and phoning back and forth over a cancelled cruise and finally got a dollar amount in credits promised. I have been wondering how and when this will happen. When I log in to RC there is no wallet or account place like with airlines where you can see credits. What is your experience? Is it a voucher? It has been a few weeks now. How long should I wait before I escalate? (ha... that rhymes) Cheers
  3. It seems the people in the video arrive at a really busy time. It looked like it was raining before they arrived and then cleared up so I infer that everyone just hopped in time around the time the rain stopped. I wonder if they started to turn people away just for crowd control purposes. I am sure that they would let you on if it weren't too massive a line up. It seems 1130 was busy. I will be Ovation out of SYD in October and will let you know....I plan on being there at 10-1030. Hopefully someone else will chime in like Pippa. BTW...I am inferring that you mean Matt and not Mark?
  4. I emailed them for traditional dining and they replied 90 days before my sailing I should email back. I guess it depends on your sailing. It seems that any 2 table top is only 2 inches away from another 2 person table. I guess so they can push them together if they need a 4 top. I am hoping it won't be so crowded during my sitting.
  5. I am just over 100 days out for Ovation and reservations for fly and northstar showed up last week! I booked it up!
  6. Just to be clear, are the windows talked about at chest level of this guy or the one where his legs are? It looks like the windows where the guys legs are can slide open given the panel in the middle. Can anyone that has been on the ship verify if these slide open too?
  7. What app is optimized for Ovation? Is the Royal app good for this ship?
  8. Marvelous photos. I love the whole report that others tend to leave out...i.e. transit in YVR, check in, airplanes (love your pics of the airplane! avgeek here)etc. I just watched a couple of videos on youtube onboard Ovation going under the Lions Gate into YVR and it looked so close...it was cool to see from your perspective. My questions are: On one of the videos I saw of Ovation departing YVR was that there were people on the bow the of the ship where people had said previously there wasn't access. Are they letting people go there now? Also, have you been able to ac
  9. We booked this hotel too before our cruise On Ovation in October! Glad to know it is comfortable and close! Hopefully you update soon and everything went well. Is this how long was your cruise? is it around New Zealand? I am guessing 12/13 days since you are posting? Also, is this the group cruise with Pippa? or is that next year
  10. I have heard so many recommendations about independent excursions companies/sites in the Caribbean but not so many elsewhere. Any recommendations for companies in New Zealand at the major stops? We will be on the Ovation
  11. Whoohoo! Just got another $150 off of my 2019 cruise because of this promotion! Still have my $100 obc! This is my second time calling in during a promotion to apply the offers and so far I have saved $405 since booking! I owe it all to Matt for his podcast and telling me just to put down the deposit and continue to check the sales!
  12. Sailing out of Sydney and our bev package has shown up 400+ days out. We want the regular refreshment package and it is going for 42 cad$/day (32 usd) gratuities included. This is for 12 day cruise. Should i book this now?
  13. Yeah, I just found this out as well. I went to book on Ovation but the room and deck I wanted only had one available. I booked just to secure it then called in and they had the room I wanted. Website wasn't showing it. Happy sailing!
  14. I called and it seems I forgot to add in gratuities . So it wasnt cheaper.
  15. Thanks, good to know. I only have a $100 credit because of the nonrefundable ticket. Nothing else.
  16. I already called in last week or so for the previous sale and saved $256! SO should i call in for New Dive and Discover Sale...should I call for the savings of $95? Is there a risk of always trying to call in and save?
  17. Yay! So I booked my first EVER cruise! I am booked on a 12 day Ovation of the Seas from Sydney around New Zealand! The itineraries were released this past week. Thanks to the many people who have posted on these forums as I have lurked and learned from you all! I chose Ovation and leaned toward RCL because of these boards and Ovation was the newest ship in the area (though I think Princess Majestic might be newer). As an aviation geek I can definitely tell the difference between plane types but, I didn't know much about cruising and ships but these forums helped heaps and I am still le
  18. I am looking to book Ovation in November. I just have to make a few arrangements before I book but i see that the price isn't so bad! How long before they go up and will there be a huge price difference? I see they have the sale on now, but will they have it on again or a similar prince again? I have to make a few arrangements with other things before I book. Right now it looks like Nov 19 is about 4500 for 2 for a 12 day cruise to NZ! Aarrrggh...so frustrated I can't book now!
  19. I agree. I somehow think that Spectrum won't be finished by Northern Autumn 2019...just an inkling.
  20. I just read on here (somewhere) Jewel was going to the Panama Canal then Bahrain...I will link it if I find it again..hope that helps
  21. I can't wait until next week for the rest of 2019! I am kind of hoping Spectrum will be on the Aus/NZ cruise I want....but I would be happy with Ovation
  22. When I go to book a cruise should I gave a backup cabin in mind or is it likely that i will have my pick when I book as soon as the schedule is released? I am looking for Ovation in 2019 autumn. I am a bit of a planner.
  23. This week and next are deployment for the remaining! Next week is Australia! Looking forward to grabbing one as soon as it comes out! Hope everyone posts as soon as it is released so I can stop working and book!
  24. newbie here so just making sure--So are you saying that is easier to get a 2 person table if you do MTD? (looking for Ovation) Overall, what I am getting is: email [email protected] 2-3 weeks before and confirm call ahead of cruise and confirm go to main dining room as soon as you board and confirm What if you are just a lonely newbie that just signed up for C&A? Do you still get the perks of requesting a 2 person table?
