  1. We were on the Symphony in Dec and Oasis the end of Jan beginning of Feb and found the Solarium better on Symphony but the Windjammer better on Oasis. Both were good but one was better than the other respectively. Go figure?
  2. Not at the MDR, however there will be a kiosk near the main entrance on deck 4 for Oasis class ships just outside Izumi that you can make your reservations for all the specialty restaurants on board.
  3. Actually all the islands in the Caribbean and even in Florida are really Cays. The Americans call them keys but they should all be pronounced cay. But you say tomayto I say tomahto. Same thing but different. It really does not matter in the end. As long as we are all happy and get along and have a nice cold beverage together.
  4. And the Solarium Bistro and room service.
  5. But that is buying the vanilla and adding more to it. And you only have to wait an additional 3-12 months??... No thanks! I will just buy it in the bottle all ready to use when I am in port thank you.
  6. That is a lot of work... I will just buy mine. All that growing, picking, drying and then the boiling and getting the extract just right, not to mention the cost of all the equipment needed. Might as well have a meth lab for more profit. lol
  7. You don't "need" to but do you really want to possibly delay your embarkation process due to slow connection low battery or a thick thumbs? I just print mine and have them ready to go and I am through the line in less than 5 min. I would have my set sail pass, my neg covid test and my passport all together and ready to show them as I pass through. I have never had a problem.
  8. You get bathrobes even if you are Gold status. Just look for them in the closet.
  9. My next cruise is not until Dec 2022 and I get weekly e-mails from RCL about that sailing wanting me to book this and that. heh all of my packages have been booked since last November. i check but there have not been any better deals. I have had e-mails from my TA about fare changes when they have happened. Not much but $100 better than a sharp stick in the eye.
  10. That is the only way to wear it.
  11. Ok?? ...no fly for me. The only way I would wear a fly if it was required and then it would have to be with a PC and it would be a court event or something like that. I don't think I am that high on the radar to warrant a court invite or would even want to go.
  12. I watch and watch but nothing... but then I get an e-mail from my MEI agent and she says oh there was a drop here is a new invoice with a reduction. Yay!! That is why I use a travel agent. Love you Michelle!
  13. OMG!! don't buy it on the ship. Wait until you get into a port to get some more if you really need it. It will cost you 10x what you will pay on land.
  14. I will be wearing mine for formal night... just with an Argyle Jacket and vest not a PC.
  15. Heh...I booked a southern 8 day cruise for Dec 2023 to Aruba, Curacao, and Labadee in March and still today the cruise planner only shows 1 stop in Curacao. No dining available, drink pkg just showed up last week. The Key is $41.99...lol.
  16. Nah...inside, then balcony, then suites for the double point bonus only... back to balcony after 2022.
  17. We were on Symphony in Dec and Flight was performed but there were some technical difficulties and they had to stop and restart a few times. Felt sorry for the cast as they were stopped, lights and sound went out while they were mid song.
  18. ok beverage pkg just showed up but wow!! $98 pp/pd. Glad I will be Diamond by then.
  19. LOL... cruise planner is now only showing 1 stop. 8 day cruise FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA WILLEMSTAD, CURACAO CRUISING CRUISING And that's it.
  20. 242 days out and the Dining pkgs are going up. Glad I got mine booked early at a lower price. Same with the refreshment pkg. With inflation and all prices going up not sure if the summer or holiday sales will get any better.
  21. We were at 11 points before Covid...I did not chase points at all. I just booked my regular cruises at our regular times and by the end of this year we will be diamond. We only cruise once a year due to work schedules so there is no way to take extra cruises. Even the short weekend cruises would be logistical nightmares. We need months of advanced planning to pull off a cruise.
  22. I turn it off and lock it in the safe for the entire cruise.
  23. Heh... even the itinerary in the CP is not up to date on a Dec 2023 cruise. It is only showing 1 port for an 8 day southern caribbean cruise...lol.
  24. I had to ask for them on Allure several years ago and they are simply the best, however my wife says its to much bread as she likes the bread they already bring. I have not had them since 2019
