    Srp431 reacted to WAAAYTOOO in Internet package Buy it before on on board?   
    That is correct.  The D+ discount is only good when purchased onboard.  You cannot combine your D+ discount and a cruise planner discount.
    Sometimes it’s cheaper to purchase pre-cruise through the cruise planner than to wait to get onboard and use your D+ discount.  The price for one of my upcoming cruises was discounted 45% pre-cruise and my D+ discount is 30% so I purchased it ahead of time.  
    Obviously if you’re using the 2 free days, that has to be done onboard.

    SIDE NOTE - do not pay the $8 locker rental when you do the wave runners! There is a compartment on the front of the jet ski and one on the back you can store things in. We had a rather large bag on us, a fanny pack, our tennis shoes - and everything fit perfectly fine. They did warn us that the compartments aren't water sealed but we had no issue. Everything was still dry.

    Me, husband and our daughter were sailing on Holland and we meant an older lady who used a walker to get around.
    Her walker had a bike horn on it and if you did not move out of her way she would honk away.  So thru out the cruise we'd hear her horn and laugh.
    My husband was a frequent victim of getting the horn blasted at him.
    So as we where waiting to collect our luggage, we hear her horn.  
    We all three turn and look, there she is strolling by but we notice on her blouse, it 20 plus name tags from the crew members.
    My daughter turns to us and says "Guess they did not get out her way, wonder what she did to them to get their name tags"

    So, our first cruise with my brother and sister in law on the Navigator. One cruise day after a morning by the pool, screwdrivers, bloody marys, beer, etc my wife says "let's get changed and have lunch in the MDR" to which we all concur. We get to the MDR and were seated with a group of folks from Missouri. Table conversations continues (my brother in law is a TALKER, he could be a politician) our lunch arrives and I chow down. My wife asks "so where in Missouri are you folks from"? One of the gentlemen replied " just south of Platte,  just across the river from Leavenworth, KS". At that point in time, I quietly sit back, wipe my mouth and said "Leavenworth, yeah, I spent some time there." Conversations ended, there was a total silence and the Missouri folks started looking out the window, their plates and anything except us. Of course, after I explained to them that I spent a year at the US Army Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth when I was on active duty they livened up and we were all friends again. We still get a chuckle out of that.

    OBTW, my husband is a wise arse.  He still takes/wears that outfit, but he says that he does it now hoping he will make some tips while on board to offset the cost of the cruise!  If now only he would use youtube to learn how to make towel animals!

    I have 2.
    1st story
    I work for a national mens clothier.  I go off and buy what I think is a great outfit for my husband.  White/navy blue striped cotton sweater, and navy shorts.  One a.m. we were at the pool and it was kind of chilly, but he knew it would warm up, so he wore this outfit.  It is @ 10 a.m. and he is sleeping on a lounge chair next to me...snoring.  Passengers are walking by and glaring.  Thus, I nudge him so he will stop snoring.  He stops snoring, but they are still walking by and mumbling under their breath.  Huh? I don't get it, why are they looking at him this way.   A few mins later a bar staff member walks up to me and asked if I needed a drink.  I looked at him, looked at my husband and broke out in laughter.  His outfit was almost identical, just different stripe design on the sweater.  I am positive all those passengers thought he was part of the crew sleeping on the job!
    2nd story
    We as a family (siblings and cousins) decided that we were going to surprise my Mom for her 80th with a cruise.  She got wind and said she was not going.  We (siblings/cousins) decided we were still going and celebrate my Mom's Bday without her.  My brother is a practical joker.  He went to Staples and had a 24x32 picture of my Mom printed up.  In his mind, she was going on this cruise with us no matter what.  He took it with him on the ship, but kept it a secret.  Formal night rolls around and VOILA he pulls this picture out for the photos..  I can't recall the Captain's name, but he was European and needed staff to translate.  There is my brother asking the Captain to take a picture of him holding this huge picture of my Mom.  The captain could not wrap his head around he was being asked to do.  I am pretty sure when he got back to the bridge, he told everyone, now he has seen it all for the photo ops.  
    My brother also makes calendars for every family member as a xmas gift.  Every month is a photo.  That yr. her bday month was the picture of the Captain holding this picture of her

    I kept hearing about savory bites so on our last cruise, I asked about them in the MDR.  They didn't have any ready but made them for us, and brought them out every night.  (It was just a 4 night cruise).

    We used Jaital.com & booked Divi Little Beach Resort. The water was amazing, the beach was beautiful & they had lots to do if you were so inclined. The price was about $40.00 pp and included beach chairs, towels & umbrella. There was a nice bar and restaurant also. We would go back as it was a very nice day. Located a taxi right outside the pier and it wasn't a great deal of money. Divi Beach has cabs lines up outside waiting to take you back to the ship as well. Enjoy!

    Yes, I fear that this delay will cause boarding to be busy.  Arriving early isn’t going to help you, unfortunately. I would plan on being there by 11:30 but you may end up waiting. Hopefully they will at least let you wait inside.

    What a wonderful gift !  You are all going to have the times of your lives.  They will never forget it !  The ATS are awesome !
    Be sure you have at least one nice meal out on the balcony.  Sometimes it can be waaaytooo hot out there, but it's so special.  It's usually a little more tolerable while underway vs being in port b/c at least you get a little breeze.
