  1. Does anyone know how (or if) these work within the casino? Wondering if I would still need to carry the sea pass card to gain points on slots or at the tables?
  2. I don't really like the kind of straw in these new cups. It just isn't the same as a regular straw. Probably preferable to a paper straw though
  3. I can understand a bit your frustration. Last year I took my son, then 17 on an Alaska cruise. He had a great time with the teen club, met lots of people and had a great time. when we go again he will no longer be able to take part in the teen club. There is a gap where young adults may still be going with parents an thus don't have any friends or bf/gf with them but little opportunity for mixing and mingling with young adults their age. Still lots to do, just not any organised way to get together with others your age.
  4. @Vee2525 I just caught that you wrote "drunk package" Maybe the best typo ever.
  5. So he wants to track even though he is on the drink package? Might I suggest one of these:
  6. I have to agree that the community here is top notch. thank you @Matt for this great space.
  7. Some people don't take passports off the ship, but I think it is essential. think about what you might need if, heaven forbid, you missed the ship!!!
  8. I think I would call in and see if they can assist you...
  9. Be happy to turn over bags to the porters, give them a tip and they will get your luggage on board. Nothing worse that dragging luggage around until you can get to your room. Nice to keep a few essentials to tide you over until the luggage gets delivered. Things like a swimsuit, essential medications and sunscreen are nice to carry on with you.
  10. I've only done this once and it was before Uber was a thing. We picked up a rental car at Disney and dropped it off near PC, then when the cruise returned we rented again and dropped at the airport. Worked great. Make sure it is all booked in advance as there will be no availability if you walk up and ask for a rental. I would say if I was to do it again I would probably UBER
  11. FuzzyWuzzy is correct, you can get ice from the Freestyle machines, however it is much easier to ask your stateroom attendant and it will be taken care of. A tip at the end of the week is appreciated.
  12. Your experience with the teen center will depend on the mix of teens on board. If there are many of similar age it will be great, if the largest group is older you may find your son may not feel inclined to get involved. My son was older, 17 last cruise and while he is introverted, he had a great time and loved everything the club and the other teens did while on board. Some of the organized activities that I thought he would love he took a pass on as the older teens separated from the younger kids and did more things on their own. By day 4-5 our stateroom became a regular hangout. You sh
  13. Not really going out on a limb as far as accessories, but The attachable lenses can really help increase the range of shots available via iphone. also, although I would sooner be dead than use a selfie stick they are great for getting a good couples/family shot without leaving someone out as photographer.
  14. I should say that I played quite a bit, slots and roulette and blackjack, played every night and made the $$ hold out.
  15. I don't know about a boatload, but I use cash and save the fee. Last cruise I set aside $500 and came out slightly ahead.
  16. I personally find no value in the photos no matter how they are purchased. I find it such an invasion of my vacation to pose for them, I avoid at all costs. my wife on the other hand thinks a few photos are worth it, so you can see that other than our agreement on cruising we are completely incompatible. ;)
  17. Definitely no DVD rentals but there are pay per view movies on offer.
  18. In addition to the great value, I love that cruise vacations offer something for everyone. my wife is happy to sit in a lounger and soak up the sun and read, I'm more of a wanderer and always find plenty to see/do. This sometimes leads to a donation to the casino but that all part of the fun.
  19. somewhat depressing not seeing @Expressman on that list. I have to do something about that. Best wishes to those heading out, play a hand of Blackjack for me.
  20. I am loving the direction of this thread
  21. Can someone remind me what the 12 steps are
  22. Yes there will be a sail away party up on the pool deck. Usually a lot of fun to watch and if you are so bold you can dance along with the entertainment team etc. I can't remember specifically but it lasts maybe 45 mins to an hour
  23. I'm sure there are others that can answer more precisely, I believe you get a point for every $5 played on the machines. they know who you are if you insert your room card into the machine. For table games, the dealer will record you info from your card...
