Gold (2/7)



  1. Black Friday got me Surf/Stream Voom for 35% off and my refreshment package for 50% off.
  2. So, I am cruising with a friend. Do I buy 1 Voom, with two devices, or do I buy voom with one device for each person? (It's cheaper to buy 1 voom with 2 devices)? Also, if you book voom with 2 device, can you cancel one device without canceling the entire order?
  3. I made a Facebook group for this sailing, too: https://www.facebook.com/groups/417232959848750/
  4. Uhhhh... Yum! Pray tell how??? Is it just soft serve and a shot of Baileys? How do you mix it up? What do you put it in? Do you get a cup/glass from the ship?
  5. I have fun with the "Drink of the Day" to try new things sometimes, and I have wine with dinner, most nights. I had a pineapple-chipotle martini as the 'drink of the day' once and it was a favorite! I bought the pineapple-chipotle syrup when I got home so I could make it for a party. I don't get the alcohol drink package (I just don't drink enough to justify the cost), but I'm going to try the refreshment package on my next cruise. I like gourmet coffees and I'd go for some fruity 'virgin' drinks and maybe a soda with a burger or pizza.
  6. I've been looking at hotels to stay at for a few days prior to cruising next year. I liked the look of the Catalina Hotel and Beach club https://catalinahotel.com/ , but I haven't stayed there. More of a funky, boutique hotel. There is a "Members Rate" when you book on their website, as opposed to through a booking site.
  7. I just got a text from TA, "It's done" So, I guess she was successful. What path would you recommend to get a new TA? I remember following Jason Poole on Periscopers, and saw so much positive feed back about him, but I did a search and didn't find a link for him. Maybe is isn't doing it anymore.
  8. So TA says that RCCL still says that to get the reduction, it has to change to a NRD. From TA: "RCCL still saying it has to be changed to non refundable. Still working on it." I can book it online as a refundable deposit booking for the reduced price... so why the push-back from RCCL?
  9. Yay! Thanks... I contacted my TA. She said RCCL told her that the reduced price was for NRD, so I sent her the screenshots showing her that the reduced price was not for NRD. She is calling back now. Why is it that you (or your TA) can get differing answers from different RCCL reps??? The reduced price on the itemized list says it's a CAS offer. I asked my TA what that means and she said it means it's a cash offer. I should hear back from her today. Thanks for your answers. ( @FionaMG too. )
  10. HI, So, I have a cruise booked and I see that it's offered for a lower price this weekend. I have already purchased the drink/internet for the cruise, because it was 30% off this weekend. If I rebook the cruise to get the lower price, does that mean that my drink and internet will have to be refunded and rebooked? I don't want to lose the sale price for the drink/internet. Thanks.
  11. What concerns me about bidding on "Royal Up" is that it's not just the bid. If you are offered and accept, don't your gratuities and taxes also increase? So you're paying your bid, plus increased taxes and gratuities.
  12. I booked our internet and beverage today for 30% off. We'll see if it goes below that.
  13. Packing cubes! Yes! Love them. Another tip I have is colors... pack a color scheme, so that you can mix and match into several outfits. I use a website https://coolors.co/ (if that link doesn't work, it's coolors dot co) It works best on a computer, not cell or tablet, although the creator has been working on apps for phones, so maybe that works now. Anyway, if you have a favorite piece, say a patterned scarf, you can either play with the color generator or take a pick of the scarf and select colors from it. You'll end up with a palette. Bring items from that palette to coordinate. It makes for easy clothing choices. Here is a favorite palette of mine from the site: Happy traveling... and packing. ~Debbie
