  1. We stayed in the JS for many years for some big reasons. Full bathroom instead of standing in the tube shower, Walk in closet, a little more room and double points. Now that we are diamond plus the double points don't mean much. Due to age getting to the next level is out of the question. When the price was right we got some GS and LS rooms and it will spoil you living the suite life. We are staying in another LS this June and like Twangster said if you can swing the price Loft Suites are highly recommended!
  2. If I have a note from my Mother will that count?
  3. I have used Diamond Lounge concierge and Suite concierge and gotten excellent service from both.
  4. We stayed at the Old San Juan Sheraton and enjoyed it there. The porters helped us learn the bus and tram systems (its free) and helped us find a good restaurant with good local food. The hotel is right across from the pier where cruise ships park (not the pier you will be leaving out) That is also close to where the bus stop is to catch Old San Juan local transportation. They have bus stop signs showing where to catch the bus. The big buses go around the outside of the city. The smaller trams go on the inside. Easier and more convenient than Uber or taxis. I think the ride to the pi
  5. Most of the info you get depends on the type of room you have. Grand suite and above requires few advanced reservations. The are dedicated reserved areas of suite guest. I believe the comedy show will require reservations for anyone. Like most have said on here, don't try to do everything. Relax, take things at a reasonable pace and enjoy yourself. Remember your on vacation.
  6. I thought one of the advantages of a TA was for them to call RC and iron things out!
  7. If you are looking to climb the C & A ladder quicker you might look into a Jr. suite next time around because you cruise points double. We did that years ago and now we are diamond plus members. Sometimes the Jr. suites aren't that much more than a standard balcony room. The Jr suites are bigger, nicer bathrooms, walk in closets on Oasis class ships, and getting on and off the ship is sometimes quicker. Keep price checking and you could bump up.
  8. A pirate goes into a bar and the bartender says: "Long time since I've seen you , man, you look terrible". The pirate says: "I feel fine". The bartender says: "Well, you didn"t have that wooden leg last time I saw you". "Well, I got into a battle and a cannon ball hit me in the leg, but I'm ok" "Well you didn't have that hook on your arm either". The pirate says: "Got in a sword fight and lost my hand". The bartender says: "What about the eye patch?" The pirate replies: " Well a bunch of sea gulls flew over the boat and when i looked up one of them crapped right in my ey
  9. How many lawyer jokes are there? 2....the rest are true!
  10. We have been to most Caribbean islands multiply times so cruising around at a slow pace and maybe stopping at Coco Cay and Labadee would be ok to begin with. I think the hard core cruisers would be satisfied to just cruise around at a snails pace and enjoy the ship.
  11. Will my wife have to pin the note to my shirt just before check in?
  12. Like Twangster said, its not just the big guy we bail out but the LARGE supply chain that gets bailed out also. Something simple like milk, goes back to the small dairy. When the auto industry was bailed out, they ended up paying back the government with interest. It wasnt just given to them free and clear.
  13. Just got back from 4 day cruise to Mexico and back on the Brilliance of the Seas. Not sure anyone will care to hear how it went since no one will be RC cruising for at least the next 30 days. Didn't seem like anyone was sick on the cruise. Washed my hands about 49,000 times, give or take a few.
