    Welcome to the message boards!
    The Royal website has a link for Coronavirus updates

    How are you getting to the cruise?  If flying there is probably greater risk on the airplane compared to the cruise ship.

    SpeedNoodles got a reaction from KJones in Upcoming sales on excursions   
    Welcome to the forums!
    Sales happen all of the time, however the BEST deals that I've found on excursions were random times between advertised Cruise Planner sales - prices that were never to be as low, even during advertised sales (easily $30-$40/pp lower).  My advice, for what it's worth, is book what you want early and then check your cruise planner regularly for price drops - don't wait for sales, you may miss the best deals!

    We have the drink package, so we really will not need the wine. I was just going to bring some along in case we got quarantined. LOL

    I was about to ask the same, it's not a phrase we're familiar with, especially when on a cruise 😁

    If this is true good for him that he can afford that type of tip...but he sounds like the type of person who tips well and expects a lot while he lets everyone know how much he tipped them. Maybe I’m just salty because I don’t like being told what to do by strangers. 
     
    I want his job. I make a decent living and can’t imagine being able to give others 1k on any trip. My room steward gets an extra tip. Bartenders, depending on level of service may get extra. Anyone after that if they show over and above  service - for me it’s the coffee people. They seem to learn my name immediately and what I like so they deserve a few extra. I don’t care what anyone else does except when they take the grats away. I may judge them for this but, who am I? No one. Move on. Next.

    Ok, first, if you're reading a forum where people are shaming other people, leave that forum.  That's unnecessary.  We don't do that here. There's no reason for you to feel badly about a cruise like that. 
    $50 is plenty because it truly is on top of what is expected.  If you WANT to leave more, that's fine - if you want to leave less, there's nothing wrong with that either.  I've left less, I've left more, depending on my particular room steward.

    Totally understand the original poster's (@kittysoul) question and dilemma.  You are kind to show compassion and concern to make sure you are tipping appropriately.
    Totally don't understand why ANYONE feels they have the right to browbeat others about tipping.  It's a personal decision based on each individual's experience on the ship and their own economics.   Maybe those people should mind their own business and let the rest of us enjoy our cruises!

    Some conditions apply such as you have to be an existing Captain' Club member but in theory anyone with a CAS number has a Captain's Club number so that might work.   Doesn't apply to solo cruisers who already get double points. Verandah or higher.  Other conditions.

Savor the best of wine country or explore the wilderness of Alaska, and many breathtaking points in between, in modern luxury style.

    Single digit dance!!! The weather sucks today. We don't typically get this kind of cold so late in February. The wind chill has dipped under -20F.
    I'm on my 4-day weekend, and I only have two more nights of work before we go. Sunday and Monday. Oh, and I requested Monday off because it's guaranteed to be the LONGEST 10-hour shift OF MY LIFE. I should know soon if it's been approved. TICK, TICK, TICK

    I live in Orange County, NY a little "upstate" about 90 minutes from Cape Liberty and the taxi service has always been subpar around here, soooooo glad to finally have decent Uber/Lyft service.
    One night, leaving a bar with my wife as the Uber pulls up I notice that obvious taxi yellow color. Didn't think it was for us until I matched the car and plate to what Uber was providing. Yep, the guy was moonlighting in his taxi as an Uber driver. 
    Cannot beat them, join them he said... Smart man.

    Hmm, I guess I stand very corrected! 😅 Genuine apologies, I would have sworn that I read here or somewhere else that standard SMS texts don’t work over WiFi because of the data protocol used, even if you have WiFi calling enabled. Might also be because I’m on an iPhone, given @Hoski‘s comment.

    We might look into just having someone stop by and check on them a couple of times a day.  We have doggie doors so they can go in and out to the backyard to do their business...The majority of their time is spent laying around and sleeping 😴
