  1. Here is my very short list: 1: Carnival Pride (December 2003) 2: USS Anzio CG-68 These are the only two ships I have sailed on. Can't wait for our sailing on Liberty in two weeks. Would not recommend the USS Anzio. Food was very comparable to Golden Corral. There was no stateroom attendant. The bathrooms were community style. They didn't offer an alcohol package. The sailing was for only offered in 180 nights. And the port schedule was way too variable.
  2. The biggest problem I see with the Royal Up Program is with the extras. For example, if I am in a Oceanview balcony room and I get The Key Program and get an accepted bid to a grand suite The Key is essentially useless. I would much rather do a Voom combo with the drink package then only to have The Key with a GS. I have a bid in for a JS and GS on my upcoming sailing on Liberty. I would keep The Key if I got upgraded to the JS but would change two things if I upgraded to the GS. If I got the GS I would not get The Key. Instead I would get the Deluxe Beverage Package with Voom and the Chops lunch special.
  3. Called again and got the same answer. After I got off the phone I actually received an email joining me to Club Royale. I might try to just do the redemption and see. I heard that you can cancel the redemption and return the points to the account if they do not accept the voucher. I will let you all know.
  4. Not if you utilize the drop off option for The Key. We are going to do that.
  5. I do not have any included special discounts. This is my first time cruising with RCCL and I am not using a voucher. The lady specifically said that because of the rate that I booked at I cannot redeem the OBC voucher. I may try again and see if I get the same answer. As for using the TA, they are not the most receptive or attentive bunch. I would not rely in them to actually do anything about it. There prices are great but the customer service is less than desired.
  6. Just got off the phone with a rep for Club Royale. She told me that I could not redeem my $100 OBC voucher since I received such a good discount on my sailing. Thought that was interesting and strange. I did get a great deal, but it is interesting that I couldn't get a discount due to a discount I received. I did earn the ability to obtain the $100 OBC but can't use it. We went originally booked through RCCL but transferred to the USAA travel partner, Member Travel Privileges.
  7. I received my Royal Up email exactly 60 days out from our May sailing on Liberty. Just FYI
  8. Wife and I are going on Liberty on the 5th of May. We paid $44 pp/pn a little while back.
  9. That is actually where I was going with this question.
  10. I was wondering what would happen if the President closes the border to Mexico on how it would affect cruise ships pulling into Mexico? We are going on Liberty in May and have Cozumel as our first stop. Maybe I should start thinking about other ports like Belize or Roatan. I am wondering what others are thinking about this possible glitch in the situation. On another note these latest discounts offered by RCCL on excursions just saved me another $60 off of Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals. Good thing I am a Cruise Planner stalker.
  11. There is a parking option at the hotel. And the lady It talked to said that their is a shuttle for $5 per person. Not sure. I will line this all out when we get there.
  12. We are going on Liberty on Cinco de Mayo. The night before we are staying at the Four Points by Sheraton. They have free parking at the hotel for cruisers and a $5 per person shuttle. I reserved early to we got a pretty sweet deal on the room.
  13. I have cancelled and rebooked twice for my upcoming sailing on Liberty. First bought at 52. Then it went down to 47 on Black Friday. Last week it went down again to 44. Real easy.
  14. Our sailing on Liberty had been bouncing between 47 to 52. I had never seen 44 and was starting to get jealous of the others that were getting that price. It hit on our 60 day window, so maybe that was a trigger. Not sure.
  15. I am sailing on Liberty in May and just saw that the Deluxe Beverage Package went down to $44pp/pn It was $47pp/pn on Black Friday/Cyber Monday. Cheapest I have seen it for this sailing.
