Diamond Plus (6/7)



  1. Cancelled an Alaska cruise with refundable deposit in October 2021 (8 months ago).. the sailing was for June 22 so it has already passed. I booked directly on the Royal Caribbean website so can't get a travel agent to follow this up. Every time I call the call center they say they will escalate to a supervisor and I need to wait another 45 days. This has occurred 4 times now. Also emailed the reservations email address and didn't get a response. Does anyone have any tips on how to get this deposit back? There doesn't seem to be any way to speak to someone that knows what they are doing. I'm almost ready to give up and cut my losses.
  2. I'm half joking.. I used to live there before moving to Melbourne.
  3. It was to replace Carnival Spirit, so if you take that into consideration it is not much different from original plans.
  4. Splendor was pretty gaudy, but they tried to remove a lot of it in the refurb for Australia. Quantum wins the battle for Brisbane hands down.
  5. Well Carnival have just announced this so they must be confident in the South Pacific. It's going to do the other half the year in Alaska,similar to Quantum.
  6. Disney are now sending a ship to Australia in 2024-25. And a new Carnival ship by the end of this year to replace the old Carnival Spirit in Brisbane. Royal are gonna have to lift their game in a few years. The competition is really heating up.
  7. P&O have bailed on the South Pacific for early September cruise due to uncertainty in the region. Getting really close to Royal Caribbean season there.
  8. Works out to 15/16 drinks per day at the moment. I could do that on a few days but not for 9 days straight.
  9. Looks kind of similar to the Universal Sphere video above.
  10. https://www.coaster101.com/2019/06/22/inside-360-degree-universal-sphere-dome-theater/
  11. One week to go.. anyone booked on Pacific Explorer? Only requiring a self RAT test 24 hours before! Too easy!
  12. Seems to line up with what is showing in cruise planner at the moment, South Pacific itinerary only has shore tours for Noumea available.
