  1. Our cruise on Allure was shortened by 3 days. Those that cancelled were offered a 100% FCC and a full refund of any pre-paid purchases (internet/drinking packages, excursions, gratuities, and port taxes/fees). For those of us that decided to still sail, they gave us a 3 day credit as refundable OBC and an additional 3 days credit as FCC; both amounts equal to cruise fare paid per person. We were also given the full 7 days of C&A points.
  2. Last time I assumed the forum was informed about something new and I was wrong, so just in case, the Next Cruise program now has an option were you have 2 months to decide your booking. I put down a deposit for my 2 staterooms ($200 each) and I have 2 months to decide what ship and date I want to sail.
  3. Not sure if it's worth mentioning but the one under the desk, on Allure, listed 230V
  4. Regular texting does not work on Wi-Fi with android phones. Im unsure when it comes to Apple, but believe its possible.
  5. Last time I checked the chat feature was only available on Allure and Harmony for now. Push notifications are now enabled but I don't think they are 100% reliable
  6. I've never eaten breakfast in the MDR; probably because we've always cruised with other couples. I planned on trying it this cruise so thanks for informing there's a buffet in there as well.
  7. What time did you arrive at the terminal?
  8. I figured since the passport provides verified info, they were going by that criteria I was going to upload her picture before we sailed anyway, just so that it was done, even though I know they'll do it at the port.
  9. One of them got it without her photo which is why i figured it was more probable due to her having a passport
  10. I gave up trying to figure it out. I started our check-ins with the app but finished them all via computer. My wife and daughter got expedited arrival but the rest of us didn't . The only similarities are that my wife and daughter both have their passports as the rest of us do not.
  11. @Marmaduke might be referring to Expected Arrival...isn't that the only benefit being offered by checking in using the app?
  12. If her phone is not in airplane mode she will be using data. Some don't realize apps, emails. etc use your phone's data and it doesn't take long to accumulate charges. You might want to try to talk her out of AT&T service as it's not going to be cost-efficient and a waste of money. You may as well use that money towards a 2-device VOOM package to appease her.
  13. I've gotten so used to referring to the boards for answers that I didn't think about RCI FAQ. It says you do keep prior perks.
  14. If we do go ahead with the upgrade, say from Boardwalk Balcony to Ocean View Balcony, we loose the perks that come with the BB room right?
  15. From what I've been reading online waivers are no longer available. I was able to do it before they stopped, so will find out in September if I'll have to do it again once onboard.
  16. As was I for our kids....Maybe some of the ships are different when it comes to minors? Out of curiosity, which ship are you sailing on, if you don't mind me asking?
  17. I was thinking that may have to be done but didn't want to throw it out there not having experiencing it myself....thanks for the verification.
  18. Once you're onboard, goto the available networks on your phone and choose the ships WiFi....it should sync once you do that.
  19. There seems to be an update about every 2-3 weeks so maybe it'll be better your next time around. It'll be in Beta mode for awhile so I'll give you update in a couple of months
  20. The scanners are actually a little bigger than the ones at the airport so as long as it fits, you can carry your luggage on board yourself. But in doing so you'll have to lug it around with you until are able to access you're stateroom at 1:00pm. Otherwise you check it in with the terminal porters and as @melski94 stated and it will be delivered to your stateroom.
  21. On Allure, would you say it's better to watch sail away from deck 7 cabin balcony (unobstructed) or on deck at the front of the ship?
  22. Others have indicated Push notifications were active, I just don't know how reliable. But to reiterate, it's currently available only on Allure and Harmony
  23. I believe the after-hour charge is $7 per hour per child. I'm guessing that has to be arranged ahead of time because I've read if you don't pick them up by 10 o'clock, it's a dollar per minute charge per child; but they don't start charging until the 16th minute.
