  1. I am surprised that they have a list of what the new price would be for sold out categories at all (and admit to it)!
  2. We will also sail in May ‘19 and I had thought that surely it would be completed by then. Although construction timing is difficult to predict, I hope that their confidence is warranted. Would be nice to have the pier done so that it’s a faster in and out!
  3. Thanks! I thought you had said so before, I just could not locate it. Thanks so much! Lynn
  4. Sorry, this isn’t a ghost question I know that the answer to this is here somewhere, but I simply cannot find it so please forgive me if this is repetitive! Are there any options for getting a fare reduction over time when the cabin booked is one that has only 2-6 per ship and tends to sell out fairly quickly (so that none are left to which to compare)? In our case we booked the Panoramic Suite on RCL Adventure of the Seas where there are only 2 of these suites total. We booked it more than a year out, so I would expect some probability of a price drop, but how would I know if it
  5. FYI - I have made a list of the available mixed drinks (at least the ones that aren’t the basic types like a screwdriver or gin & coke) on the acceptable list in the suite’s lounge. I would be happy to send it to you
  6. As innocent a play as you will find (any sexuality is such a caricature that your child is likely to miss the reference ). I do remember asking my father on a trip to NY when I was about 10 why I couldn’t go with him to see No No Nannette _ just made me want to see it more that I couldn’t! I haven’t seen it yet!
  7. I’ve also wondered if it’s worth the time. I’ve done escape rooms with family and friends, but I am not sure doing it with family and a large group of strangers would be a lot of fun (although it’s hard to imagine).
  8. This. At most we would drink 2 alcoholic drinks a day and 2 sodas. It would be truly insane for us to pay for a drink package (so we don’t).
  9. We use to pay $75 a day for ours for someone to stay overnight and come one during mid day (they had a doggie door and fenced yard). They were old and the one time I boarded them they were a wreck (and hoarse) when I returned so paying that was worth it to travel without feeling horrible. I can imagine 4 would be pricey ! It did keep us from traveling for quite some time until we found someone we trusted to that degree with our furkids and our home. Glad you found someone to help!
  10. I don’t think so, but someone else who has been at this a much longer time could say for sure.
  11. I must have 100’s by now, it’s semi insane (I got lucky and made friends with two women there running the big groups so I became a virtual magnet I think). Most people have playe profiles and are looking (it seems) for people posting little other than myVegas content (super easy for me since it’s my sole reason for being there ). Once you have a lot of people posting points it becomes relatively easy max your points everyday (although w a sick kitty this weekend I hardly turned on any device). The only people I exclude are the ones posting political opinions/memes. I will add you now.
  12. Thanks for the info So I am now reasonably good at getting the extra points (tons of “friends”) who play a lot and joined some decent MyVEGAS groups. I can become “impressive” pretty quickly but even then I somehow burn through it pretty past MyVEGAS Slots. I also do that on blackjack. However, I can regularly keep chips on the 3-15 million level in Konami and Pop! Slots. I tried building max points slowly, but it likely is best to do it quickly? It’s all hypothetical at this point! So far my tactic has been to spin low and frequently (1-2 of them on lower levels will run a while with
  13. I have been trying to build up loyalty points - I cannot imagine how much time I would need to play to get 1,000,000 points! If you have a secret let me know I don’t enjoy it, that is definitely going to impact it all, I still have made quite an effort this last week to see what it’s all about and the loyalty points build very slowly.
  14. HAPPY NEW YEAR AND FAIR SEAS IN 2019 From the U.S. east coast (a little early, but making sure it gets done ), Lynn
  15. As long as you aren’t upside down at the end and had fun, you’re golden Happy Sailing
  16. BUMMER I used to do a special “spell” when hubby was on call as we went to bed to try to ward off late night calls - it usually worked So shoot me a message the next time and I will see if I can’t abracadabra something up for you! Lynn
  17. Ok daggumit... how do you have 30k in three days? I max out on chips every day and it’s taken me lots longer. Unless you are buying chips? I just max out the free stuff (otherwise it might turn into something akin to playing real slots ).
  18. I completely agree, a govt mandate makes it quite different from an employer issue. We do have the official document which lays it all out clearly at least (or clearly enough). I think that our only option at this point is to cross our fingers. I was even up last night reading the wording to see if she had the option for leave without pay, but they don’t. There is some wiggle room for “brief or intermittent” time off ( not defined), but then a mid-level supervisor who is rarely given any independent decision making would have to walk that fine line so I don’t have a lot of faith in that
  19. I really appreciate that you took the time to say you care. It is very nice of you We will go anyway, we do not have a claim for not going. But her portion is over $2800 which is a lot for her to give up (or us) in addition to the already expensive cruise. Clearly we never would have booked a 2br 2ba for just the two of us, but that isn't going to matter to anyone in the end. I have a minor update as of today - I phoned Chase and although it was someone from card services rather than claims, she voiced the opinion that the claim might not be covered as it was an "employer issue."
  20. @Baked Alaska Thank you both I hope it does too Yaya, but I cannot say I have much faith left in humanity (sorry, present humans excluded ). I am a behavioral scientist and I would not want to wager on the likely actions of the players in this “game.” I will try to call and see - I assume that I will get the usual “submit the claim and see” that we see in my practice constantly. They often will not tell you if it’s covered, but give you the “if medically necessary” (to be determined by them at them at at that time but who knows which rules). I am really trying to be hop
  21. Thank you It is certainly a unique situation, but since it is s Goverment edict it seems closest to the jury duty than a pure employer situation and they do use that as an example of covered instances. Good idea on the swapping, although it could cause a few other issues (Certain benefits are for guests 1/2, also if 2 is a no show the effect on the 3rd passenger is unknown). ‘The 3rd passenger quandary (or 2nd for that matter) is one I hope has been run into before since that odd pricing is so frequent now that there surely is a way they typically deal with it, just not one I know
  22. I am bringing this question here now because I don’t know who else to ask. It’s a super sensitive issue right now, I just cannot wrap my head around this - my family is feeling a huge mix of sadness, anxiety, and anger and I very much hope people will consider so I would ask that. We have a cruise booked for the 4th week in January. The cabin was an expensive one, but it’s going to be split with my adult (step) sister and so it made it more reasonable when it is divided 3 ways. It has been planned for nearly a year and we’ve all very much looking forward to it. The problem is that my
