  1. while it is true the perks are a little scarce at platinum and emerald there are some and your not that far from diamond it is worth the wait ask your room steward for the C+A robe they are very comfortable and the one big advantage so far for me as platinum was the check in at the port my indy cruise from ft laud this past February I walked into the big room only to see a huge amount of people waiting to check in and to my surprise I was directed to check in desk further in the room marked platinum there was no one ahead of me my check in took less then 5 mins and I was seated in a very comfo

  5. all just rumor right now but stand by as has been pointed out many times on this forum all the other lines are doing it so royal is just following suit the haven msc and the ability to upgrade your experience I suspect that most of these perks will be kept on the down low to a degree to minimize hurt feelings of the unwashed who cant afford such luxuries I for one always wondered what was behind that door on 14 that many went in but few came out the plot thickens
  6. and so it begins shades of msc pay for your experience money talks BS walks
  7. I love this what we have here is a great communication
  8. I may be an old fossil but I prefer the older well kept up ships freedom indy liberty are my idea of a mega ship I have sailed oasis class and did not like the feeling I got we seemed to be herded everywhere we went staff was mostly tired and stressed I hated the inside balconies everytime I opened my blinds it seemed like I had an audience I love the feeling of knowing the staff on the small ship if I had my choice for favorite ship in the fleet it would be enchantment so cozy personal for the most part it has always said welcome so happy for you to be here I am on the brilliance in oct and a
  9. I have said this before I go on a seafood diet all the food I sea I eat
  10. ok earlier today I got criticized for predicting that in the not to distant future royal will be an all ala carte experience from embark to disembark think about it check out the msc model
  11. this is very true pay no mind to them this is the way they are I live in a city in florida of 70000 made up of almost all new Yorkers I ignore the rude ones and seek out the nice ones after 23 years living in the "little apple"i have come to realize there is good in everyone sometimes you just have to look deeper and you will quickly learn how to tell them apart when I first moved here I picked up an Orlando paper whose lead editorial was entitled Rude Coast my town has a terrific mix of new York and southern redneck 23 years of culture clash has been a riot to watch but all in all they adapte
  12. I can tell you when royal will change there perks for diamond members it will be feb 2019 how do you know you may ask BECAUSE that's when I become diamond I hope they don't take away my plush crown and anchor robe my prediction before to long cruising with royal will be a total ala carte experience from boarding to disembark
  13. this was my experience to the tee I went to the desk once never to return again the rep gave me a price so over the top that I questioned if there could have been a mistake this is when the whole experience went south the rep told me that's the price I thanked her and left nextcruise is apparently a sub business overseen by royal which seems to operate on commission I will go with AAA or my royal senior vaca planner for all future cruises
  14. love the blog next time in Falmouth book the beach buggy ride with lunch ride was ok lunch was good but definitely jerk the real treat was the van ride through the real Jamaica it takes well over an hour to get there well over you will se how it really is and on the way back you will stop at a well guarded shopping mall for some shopping the poverty is incredible and right in the middle of the shanties is a mansion saw dozens of examples of this Jamaica is a fascinating place to visit but you must see it with a guide never alone
  15. this depends twice my ship freedom and indy were on pier 29 which is a long way from the ship there are courtesy shuttles that run often but central parking is a long way from the ship and I have been told there is no customer parking at 29
  16. the restriction on the package specifies stand alone starbucks are not included like the one on oasis
  17. lets keep this subject going come on casino people like me I'm trying to figure out how all this works why slots give more points then roulette etc tips I work every cruise to better myself but just realized it was necessary to introduce myself to the casino boss on my last cruise and unfortunately I noticed the pit boss staring at me and instead of realizing that was a good thing I gave him a nasty look I would be tickled if I won any certificate but I could use some tips
  18. ah it is so nice to not have such worries we lowly emeralds which I finally achieve the first night of my oct sailing will have to do for now and I know for a fact I will never be able to enjoy the mysteries of the suite lounge my income has doomed me to this fate but my booked future cruises will get me to the diamond watering hole sometime in feb 2019 for now I will deal with the luxuries Jack experienced in steerage on the titanic maybe I can meet a rich spoiled girl as he did to show me the luxuries of the suite class if not for the cruise but for an hour or so but with the spectrum now go
  19. I for one am truly saddened by this topic I never gave this a thought till I read this I love meeting people from all over the world and take great interest in sampling the food culture humor entertainment and for that matter every aspect of the area from port to returning to port ah well I guess this had to come up eventually
  20. 90 seems a little high to me for a 3 day cruise I have a solo 5 day oct 1 on the brilliance cost me 29.00 through Royal I was on the majesty last sep as one of the hurricanes approached we came back to port Canaveral a day early we were all given one days fare onboard credit to our sea pass account which had to be used before we disembarked one day credit not on the total just the basic nightly cost a very small amount we were offered to stay on board and go with the crew out to sea to ride out the storm which I initially jumped on then the details came out the ship goes into emergency mode no
