  1. Replying to my original question. After setting up a Crown and Anchor Account ( I don't remember how I did it ) I read somewhere (probably on here) that after completing your first cruise you would automatically receive your Crown and Anchor membership number and your points. So I did NOTHING except wait to see if the wife got her membership and sure enough, about 4 weeks after the cruise she received an email welcoming her to the C&A. As of now we have not done anything to set up out accounts, but will look into that.
  2. Emailed Crown and Anchor as suggested and all has been straightened out. I had two accounts, they combined them, and I now have my 9 points. Thanks to all for your great help.
  3. Just Checking ... Wife and I went on a 9 night cruise in May on the Grandeur. I had gotten my Crown and Anchor membership number pre cruise. Wife received hers after cruise. She was awarded her 9 points when she got hers, I am still waiting. Question is .. Should we both get the 9 points or does just the "primary" name (evidently her)on the reservation get the points? BTW, the cruise to New England and Canada was fantastic and we are booked for next April to Bermuda (2 night stay) on the Grandeur. Thanks, Dave
  4. Was on the Grandeur of the Seas from June 13 to June 22. I specifically asked our waiter in the MDR if there was a special menu for vegetarians/vegans ( I had heard there was) and he did confirm it. Remember, you have to ask for this menu specifically. He, being very helpful, offered me a copy but did say they do change from time to time. I would think this is company wide so enjoy. This is the Dinner Menu.
  5. Great info to know. Our first cruise is tomorrow and now i know what to do if the cabin is not in good order upon entering for the first time. Priceless.
  6. Keep in mind that these questions are asked for first timers (like us in 3 days) who are unfamiliar with Cruising practices. Ok, so it seems that room service is divided in two separate happenings. 6:00 AM to 11:00 AM for breakfast and 11:00 AM to 6:00 AM is for regular dining. There is no service fee for the Continental portion of breakfast but a $7.95 delivery fee if an American breakfast is also desired. The rest of the day there is a $7.95 delivery fee for everything (the menu I am looking at (blurry) looks like a $2.95 delivery fee but that doesn't make sense). I assume the delivery fee include a tip for the deliverer ? But how about the deliverer of just a Continental breakfast, what would be an appropriate tip (18% ? of what ?) And, talking about the cabin attendant(s). It seems to me that there are usually 2 attendants to a cabin, primary and their assistant. If I want to give additional gratuities at start of cruise ($10/$20 more or less?) what is an appropriate amount to give? To both or primary to split. Hope to get some actual $$$ answers, not the stock "Give what you think it is worth"
  7. Thanks for posting the MDR menu's. Is the MTD (My Time Dining) menu the same as the MDR's menu? TIA
  8. Price changes can happen anytime, not necessarily on a day basis but on an hour basis. I just noticed that prices in the Cruise Planner have changed, some up and some down, possibly because of the holiday approaching. As others have said, buy your item when you are comfortable with the price and watch for reduced prices.
  9. What we use when we were traveling internationally was Across the Body bags especially designed for travelers. They have steel reinforced shoulder straps, RFID pockets, room enough for a point and shoot camera, and most have a water bottle holder. Wife has a BeSafeBag by Daymakers and I have a Travelon Anti Thief Classic Bag. Both on Amazon. Mine is a bit larger than hers and can hold a 10" tablet to her 8".
  10. After purchasing an excursion, etc. the purchase will be in your "Order History" but the excursion will also be in the "Recently Viewed" option. The "Recently Viewed" option is where I watch for price changes as it is updated with new pricing as they happen. Just delete options not bought but viewed. I also keep a sheet of paper with the price history of my excursions and other purchases (Key, Drink plan, etc).
  11. Actually what RCL is doing is to give an OBC. The amount is dependent on what class of cabin you have. We had booked 3 Spacious View Balconies on the Grandeur on Thursday when on Friday morning I noticed the offer, called our TA and each cabin got an additional $75 OBC. Call you TA or RCL and ask for it.
  12. One thing to remember if a trip to Disney World is contemplated don't wait until the last minute to leave the park because Murphy lurks. The traffic leaving Orlando from mid afternoon on the Central Florida Greenway (417) to the Beachline (528) and to Port Canaveral and Cocoa Beach gets quite heavy and unforeseen things do happen. If we had young children, for the Disney experience, I would go to Disney Springs, having made reservations for early afternoon at T-Rex restaurant (they can be made on Disney's website) or try at the entrance, and the kids will love the animated dinosaurs that perform every 20 minutes or so. Then leave about 3ish so not to watch the boat disappearing into the sunset. OH yeah, our "kids" are in their 50's and we have been to T-Rex several times.
  13. We have 3 adjoining balcony cabins for 24 Apr 2020 on the Grandeur to Bermuda. Are the dividers between the cabins able to be opened to have one large balcony? Thanks
