  1. Able to check in for this second leg of my B2B. Switching cabins unfortunately but I'll trudge on!
  2. We were able to get ours, even though my new roomie is from a different state ( ex-roomie was from the state of matrimony but divorce after 32 years is a heckuva change for an old phart like me :>)
  3. If it's still a close call, NOT flying would make the decision for me personally :>)
  4. I'll admit that "The Gift" storyline threw me on my ear a bit when it was introduced. The transition to "The Book" has been a work in progress for Royal for some time now (it has been performed under both titles this year but no idea if that will remain that way). I recently got to talk with one of the entertainers that was glad to hear that some veteran cruisers would even be able to take note of the evolution (I was raised with an appreciation for live theater/entertainment so no problem on my end). Made my reservation for this run but haven't needed them for many of the shows this year. Hope we all stay healthy enough enjoy this run (plus the 6-night for some of us ;>) Hagar the (not so) Horrible
  5. Makes me miss the old "Diamonds in December" promo (but not sneezing at all of the double points I have racked up as a solo cruiser this whole year ;>)
  6. I was contacted 5 days prior this week (for SR cruise on 10-2)
  7. Been able to cruise a BUNCH this past year and do appreciate so many of the artists already named here. Want to add 2 groups that have caused me to book the ship they were on while looking for a late booking pre-Covid, "Abbacadabra" and "Savannah Jack." Fortunately, "Savannah Jack" was a late replacement this year so did see them once already
  8. I have received a drop in air pricing that resulted in a credit card refund, pre-covid. One of my customers received the same thing at the end of 2021 for his family of four. Air2Sea did make sure this the fares qualified for the refund but that just amounted to checking to make sure the lower fare wasn't a special pricing issue, like a "flash sale" or a restricted rate (like only flying on Tuesday /Wednesday).
  9. I didn't wear the robes when I was built like my earned nickname (Hagar the Horrible), but I can and do now that I have lost 80 pounds A minor stroke in 2020 and then DW of over 30 years wanting a divorce last year were both good motivation. Twenty pounds to go still............
  10. I should have clarified that the lack of a charge for overweight luggage was on the Royal info sheet. I didn't double check what they based it on since I knew my bag was 45lbs.
  11. On Wonder in March. I had last cabin on deck 10 port side, and it was "Wonder"-ful!
  12. We had a "CL" on Symphony in October of '21 so fully intended to respond to this post. Brought a smile to my face when I recalled that DW actually slept upstairs with me since I no longer need my "CPAP." I hadn't actually seen the couch in action but after 32 years together I was hit with the "D" word the following month! Oversharing ? Just thought it was interesting what a post can shake loose, especially from a warped mind (my horns help hold my halo up though ;>)
  13. An extra feature advertised with this service is that you don't get charged for an overweight bag. Loved it in June and July on Ovation even though weight wasn't an issue for me for these 7-night runs
  14. I left the Explorer at the end of April and Mario had joined us for the start of 6 months there (if my mind was functioning correctly ;>) Hagar the Horrible, and the #2 cruiser onboard since "SM" was there (my points were not even worth mentioning compared to Mario's!)
  15. When I used to use them, I had email confirmation of request fulfillment within 3 days. Even though this is post Covid and things are not running as we hoped, I agree with calling.
  16. Amen, I am an old phart and repeatedly question my sanity regarding this aspect of my travel "adventures"
  17. There are still nuts like me "out there" that redeye in the day of the cruise. Only do that 3 of my next 5 runs but the other 2 I fly in the morning of the cruise
  18. I used the cruise lines round trip transfer in January and found it to be very efficient.
  19. Fave-Abbacadabra (tribute band) when they did the inaugural shows for Oasis (and Allure the following year?). Least-another vote for Cats
  20. Legend of the Seas check-in in Shanghai 2009. Luggage drop-off was located in the terminal to be dropped AFTER check-in. Fights broke out, employees were terminated, and once onboard the staff/crew were so apologetic as they kept reminding us that we were in good hands "NOW."
  21. I had a B2B in one of the single balconies when Quantum was brand new. DW wanted to go on the 12-night leg and Royal didn't know how to price it. They just cut my price in half so they could add her taxes and off we went >>>>>>>>>> Close quarters is an understatement and a far cry from the suites I spoiled her with later in life
