  1. Booked! Our first sailing to Bermuda. I think there is almost 20 in our group.
  2. I will let you know 2 weeks from today. I will be going inside the new terminal. Wife has a hook up.
  3. Only email I have received is that bid was not win…after we were already sailing. LoL
  4. They are apparently still on back order. We have not received ours yet from April 7th sailing.
  5. I read the same thing. Called the county health and human services division and they were able to provide it to me so I could write it in. I sailed 3 times with no issue prior to reading of someone's denial because of no lot number.
  6. Wasn't feeling well on last week's Liberty cruise and the crystal block was the last thing on my mind. Realized today that we hit 281 on that sailing and should have received a block. We have a sailing in July on Independence and wondering if we can wait and request one on that ship instead?
  7. Congrats! Check again in 24 hours. Ok now the cruise critic response… what cabin were you originally in what did you upgrade to and what was minimum bid and what bid did it take to win?
  8. Posted answer in the event someone does a search like I did and stumbled across your old thread.
  9. Our bid showed pending until the second day of the cruise! LoL
  10. We collect the 3 liter liquor bottles since they are not available in Texas. Not sure about other states, but someone told me they were not sold in the US.
  11. See below. Apparently they extended the amount of time you have to redeem.
  12. The days of $39 DX packages are gone, long gone. Purchase at the price you are comfortable with and if it goes down you can cancel for a refund and repurchase at the lower price. No they will not just refund the difference.

  14. We are D+ and had to factor in our 5 “free” C&A drinks on our current 5 night cruise. Price for DX was $66. Do we normally drink more than 5 when cruising? Yes, but not more than would exceed $66 each. We are in port two days and both will be at an all-inclusive resort. No chance that we will exceed the 5 C&A drinks those two evenings. We carried on 2 bottles of wine and a case of water as well. Going into this 02/09 sailing the decision was already made to skip the DX package.(first time since offered) A few months after booking the price dropped significantly on Grand Suites. We upgraded and now alcohol is complimentary in the suite lounge between 5-8pm. We did not exceed our 5 free drinks yesterday, so $0 alcohol on invoice. It’s a sea day so we will see how it works out today
  15. I forgot our insurance company now reimburses us so I will pass the deal on to someone else. Thank you.
  16. How much do you want for them?
  17. Wowza! Hope you snagged the deal. Going to check all my current reservations. I know next weeks is showing $66. Pass.
  18. I saw $100 obc last night. Just checked and it shows "sold out". I have been able to apply to an existing reservation if it was less than 30 days of booking. However, the cruise cannot be more than a year out. I booked one 3 weeks ago, but the cruise is May 2023 so they would not honor. Points were refunded.
  19. Been playing for about 4 years and have never been overcharged. I have spent less than $10 and have received about $1000 in onboard credit. I had a free cruise also, but I had to cancel because of a work conflict. They refunded my loyalty points. I don't play every day but when I do it's for less than 5 minutes.
  20. Next week will be the first time to sail without the DX. Will enjoy our 5 "free" Diamond Plus drinks. It's a 5 night sailing and going to all-inclusive resorts at both stops. We will definitely not exceed that on port days. I am sure we will drink more than the 5 on sea days but will not be worth $66 (+18% grats). This is a test and I think in the end we will be far under $778 that the DX would cost us. If this works out, we might give it a try on our April 7 night sailing. I find myself getting drinks on night 6, and especially night 7, that I would not normally consume in an attempt to "get my money's worth".
  21. If you can leave on short notice and get covid test done today or tomorrow, there is a "free" 7 night Southern Caribbean cruise leaving out of Barbados on 02/06. @BrandonOwen grab the clubs and go!
