    Yo2slick reacted to MinnesotaCruiser in Even when cruising resumes....   
    My parents are appalled that we are booked for two more cruises.  They say ships are dirty.  Honestly, after going on one I think going to the grocery store is 100 times worse- there’s just no way to track it since everyone is not in the same place for a week plus.  Not once did I go into the bathroom and there wasn’t some attendant cleaning it and it seemed like the second I touched something on the ship someone was right behind me wiping it down.  Our stateroom bathroom was cleaned twice daily.  One of the cleanest places I have ever been!  Much judgement towards my husband and I are from people who have never been.

    They are saying in Oklahoma the kids may not go back after spring break.  All stores are sold out of TP, Paper towels, water ect ect.  Its getting out of control.

    Yes, you will still need to purchase internet. That is a perk only on the ships that have Royal Suite Class -- Allure, Harmony, Oasis, Symphony, Anthem, and Ovation.

    Yo2slick reacted to Ampurp85 in How early can you book addons?   
    There are probably only a few options available this early. I think most stuff will start to open up when you are under a year. I don't know if you booked through a TA or online. Online will tell you all the perks you have available based on your class. However, I think that only grand suites and above, possibly only on oasis or quantum class ships, get Voom included in the fare.

    My wife and I purchased the Key on Liberty and we really enjoyed it.  We utilized every benefit of the Key and for us it was worth it.  Not having to wait in line at all was worth every penny by itself and then you throw the internet in with it....

    Yup..carrying off that large sum of cash and paying off the credit card bill immediately.  Then reaping the rewards from the credit card points!!!

    If you're taking multiple trips a year and spending $15000 or more ONBOARD each trip, I'm available to be adopted!

    Yo2slick got a reaction from whenismynextcruise in Credit Card Pre-authorization hold   
    They are essentially charging your card temporarily to make sure you can cover it.  That affects your available credit available and if it takes 2 weeks to fall off you are holding onto charges you have already paid for on your final bill.  No different than buying something and returning it to the store.  They take your money right there and it takes them 3-5 days to return your money back to your account.  Thats why I like using my AMEX because the holds fall off very quickly.

    I just set my account up as a cash account, we don't spend much on board, pre pay most all we can.  Early debarkation morning (around 5:00 or so as I am an early riser) I go down to GS, there is never a line, and pay the final bill with my AMEX, never any holds, never any "suspect" charges after the fact, as they can not charge anything else to that card but for the one single transaction.

    This is exactly what you should do use Amex.. I use a Royal Caribbean Visa and it takes 2 weeks for all the holds to fall off.

    A daily hold is like a pre-authorization.  The final charge is what the net result of your on board account is when they add any onboard credit and subtract what you have spent.

    Just to add, we have done two RC cruises before and didnt know this, I only found out recently on here, you can order more than one starter or desert if you like in the MDR and speciality restaurants. We are on Adenture of the seas in October and am defiantley going to be ordering the Carpaccio and Black Pepper Bacon in chops 🙂

    I don’t think you have to dress any different than you would then at the MDR. For men, nice pants and a shirt with a collar. No tie or jacket required.
    I always order steaks and have been very happy. My wife eats seafood and also has been happy as well. No complaints from the food when we have gone. Everything has been good.

    Yo2slick got a reaction from spiralqueen in The Key   
    They sell a ton of stuff thats pure profit on the ship......I thought the Key was one of the best purchases we made.  I boarded right after suite guests and pinnacles, sat down to a quite Chops lunch, never had to stand in line for a show or try to find a seat, got to ride the flowrider for an hour while everyone else had to wait, priority at ports of call (again no waiting in line), internet included which we were going to buy anyway and on disembarkation I had a great breakfast and was then escorted off the ship in front of everyone waiting at the gangway straight to immigration and customs.  I didn't have to wait at all during my cruise and for that I would have paid even more!!!  Not to mention the look on my wifes face every time we went straight to the front of the line or to our reserved seats.

    Its per person but keep in mind that anything you buy will have an 18% gratuity charge added to it.  So its really 116.82 per person.

    I stand corrected.  We bought our dining package on board but at a discounted rate.  Now that I think about it adding the 18% to ours on board makes it about the same price that I saw on the cruise planner.  Thank you for the correct info.
