    SpeedNoodles reacted to Andrew72681 in Free trip from playing a Facebook game MyVegas   
    Something must have been broken in the game for the last week or so. Up until about an hour ago, I’ve been able to let it run on my iPad and it wasn’t maxing out daily rewards. I’ve gone from 3 million loyalty points to 4 million this week. Now just need some premium redemptions to come back.

    SpeedNoodles reacted to Jill in Air Travel   
    I’m in a Mediterranean Cruise tips group on Facebook and there was a recent post on this. 
     
    Several chimes in about Air2Sea and how flexible it is. Some were saying they picked the flights they wanted then called Royal and had them price the flights. 
     
    I always thought you were at the mercy of Royal to pick your flights but apparently that isn’t the case. 
     
    This is one reason I went with MEI (Sharla) for our October 2021 Odyssey Italy/Greece. We have a group of 4 couples so it’ll be like herding cats. She said we can start looking about 300 days out.

    SpeedNoodles reacted to CrznTxn in Refund after voluntary cancellation   
    As a followup on an old thread, we finally received the final refund for our cancelled cruises. The payment from our final non refunded cruise in June went through today and we are finally paid back. This is not a negative post as we had several great conversations with the Royal operators who were able to walk through all of our cancelled cruises this year and find where the delays were. They were always very friendly and it helps to be nice to them upfront and have all the data organized and ready. I am an organization nut and have all the payment and refund data for all our cruises in spreadsheets so we can access it anytime. We now look forward to our next cruises later this year and next and are optimistic that we will be able to return to the sea breezes, sandy beaches great folks we meet on our favorite form of transportation. 🛳️

    Our experience at Playmakers on Symphony last February was totally opposite.  The first time we stopped by it was very busy, but I caught the eye of one of the servers and smiled and he found our waiter immediately.  After that, we were generally recognized and always had someone at our table within  a few minutes, and meals and beverages came out at a very reasonable rate with very good, friendly, service.  Maybe they just have it together on Symphony.  I really enjoyed Playmakers.  Can I just go now?

    The percentages are pretty useless. Just look at the actual price.

    SpeedNoodles reacted to princevaliantus in Cruise lines are already canceling sailings into 2021   
    OK guys...you are confusing the Jones Act which restricts the waterborne transportation of goods from one U.S. point to another to vessels that are U.S.-flagged, U.S.-built and at least 75 percent U.S.-owned and crewed with the Passenger Vessel Service Act which No foreign vessels shall transport passengers between ports or places in the United States, either directly or by way of a foreign port, under a penalty of $200 [now $762] for each passenger so transported and landed. AND both can be waived by Presidential Executive Order which Trump waived the Jones Act for Puerto Rico, easing Hurricane Aid shipments to Puerto Rico in September 2017 for 10 days during Hurricane Maria.  A new law is not required.

    SpeedNoodles reacted to Neesa in Passport Expiration Question/Under 16   
    @KJones, @twangster, @Lovetocruise2002, oh boy another I told you so moment in my home! Thanks for the 411, I went ahead and did the Vital Check and while it put me back 52.00$ I will have peace of mind knowing I have a duplicate original in about 5 days. It was a pretty easy and quick process with a computer....and credit card. 25.00 for document + 7.00 processing fee + 20.00 overnight mail for security purposes. Still much better then driving to NJ from Florida and then going to the local health dept.  
    Again thanks for the info everyone! Have an enjoyable weekend.

    I agree. There's nothing to lose by waiting, and everything to gain (if RC cancels the sailing instead of you).

    My itineraries from my Empress ----> Odyssey sailings were Eastern Caribbean to Southern Caribbean (both 8 night).  So maybe "Caribbean" is close enough.

    SpeedNoodles reacted to DocLC in How does a cruise line mitigate risk on excursions?   
    I think the primary benefit of them forcing passengers to use one of their excursions in contact tracing. Because they can control who you've been in contact with both on the ship and on the tours, if anyone test positive for COVID or experiences symptoms, they can determine where to focus intervention first. MSC also claims that their providers are tested and screened regularly and that all vehicles are sanitized and have been set up to allow proper social distancing.
    When my wife heard of this, she said "Hell, no!" She says it's too much like a prison sentence.
