  1. So I got an email response saying not to worry, everything is good to go for my trip and the OBC. BUT no specific mention of amount, nothing that says if it is a split between true "use it anywhere" on board credit and casino freeplay (as some are experiencing.) I'm printing all of this out, tho we shall see if it actually works! We board on Monday. Dear Beth, Thank you for contacting Club Royale! Please let us be the first to wish you a happy anniversary! We have reviewed your reservation XXXXX and made sure it is prepared for our onboard guest services
  2. My friends were there last week and said that construction continues around the South Beach area but the floating bar WAS still open! We go in a week, we're excited! (Not only about the floating bar, but that will be fun...)
  3. We'll be in Nassau in 2 weeks so I've been doing research as well! I've not heard / seen great reviews on Junkanoo Beach. Rather, it seems recommended to take the #10 bus out to Cable Beach. Nicer, cleaner. BUT, am wondering if anyone here has had experience with Cable Beach?
  4. I think this is really interesting, as others who are on board now are having to "argue" their way through this all, with the same type of confusion - first - I don't know what you're talking about, then meetings, calls back to Miami, still giving less than promised, more arguments, etc. AND, it seems that Cristobal has been a part of several of these discussions. C'mon dude, stop playing dumb and SOLVE this the first time someone approaches you with this issue! As it's going to keep happening over the next few weeks!
  5. We're on the July 8th Majesty of the Seas so I've been checking the cruise planner. A few weeks ago, they had daybeds listed and then they went off. Then this afternoon, daybeds & cabanas were "there" but listed as something that must be reserved once on board. Now they are gone again. With the closure of South Beach area (and those related cabanas), I'm guessing that pushed folks that wanted to rent those over to Chill Island, etc. We have some OBC to use so I was hoping to snag one once onboard, but with inventory in shorter supply, I'm guessing it won't happen. Will just hav
  6. So we are sailing on the Majesty of the Seas in a couple of weeks. Obviously one of the smaller ships and a lot fewer dining options than the larger class ships. But are the menus for the MDR and Windjammers pretty similar to the larger class ships? Or scaled down accordingly? Just curious! And any specific food recommendations for dining on the Majesty, let us know! Food items, snacks, etc. Thanks!
  7. Again, it is frustrating, thinking that they MUST have had several MyVegas folks on by now. Are there THAT many customer service people rotating on & off that this situation is like a "surprise" to them every time? And apparently no memo / discussion to the customer service staff, concerning how to deal w/ this situation w/out the customer having to spend hours prior and on their cruise (and after, for some), simply getting what they promised from the get-go?
  8. Yeah, the hubs is not so keen on wearing pants on the cruise. And do they designate no jeans? Frankly, I think nice khaki shorts are nicer than jeans in most cases. On formal night, we'll likely go elsewhere (tho it's the Majesty, so not a TON of other options). But want to plan to go to the MDR most other nights. We'll bring a couple of polo shirts for him to wear (probably only for dinner) and maybe one pair of pants. But I guess this all begs the question - should there be ANY limits to the dress code in the MDR? I mean, are tank tops, tube tops and cutoffs ok? Folks might say tha
  9. Yeah, we're on the Majesty (only because we THOUGHT we were going to Cuba....) The app is pretty laughable for the Majesty. 3 weeks after they canceled Cuba, the excursions still list "All Day Tour in Havanna." So I guess I'll go with the website....
  10. But they at least knew what you were talking about? That's a good sign! Good luck and have a GREAT time!
  11. Eager to hear more about your trip! Hope you had a blast! We are on in just under 3 weeks!
  12. Stopping in Nassau on our upcoming cruise, and while we're doing "official" excursions the other two days, we thought we might do our own thing this day. I've heard not so great reviews on Junkaroo Beach. Seems the most convenient to the port, but more crowded and not as nice as Cable Beach. Does anyone have any experience visiting Cable Beach? Was it nice? Were there chairs avail for rent? How did you get down there (up there?) - I read somewhere that either a cab or bus would take you there. Also was wondering if you could bring your own drinks or are there places on or near t
  13. MrMarc, I'm in the same situation with MyVegas and the OBC. But as I've said a couple of places, I'm nervous that I'm going to show up and they don't honor the "deal" that they offered (in writing.) When is your cruise? Eager to see how it works out!
  14. So wondering what WILL be available, if everything isn't already snapped up due to the construction. So it seems that concerning Bungalows, Cabanas, Daybeds, etc., these are the possible options?: Oasis Lagoon: "28 daybeds & cabanas" https://www.royalcaribbean.com/cococay-bahamas-perfect-day-island/explore/oasis-lagoon/details Chill Island: "14 cabanas & 35 daybeds" https://www.royalcaribbean.com/cococay-bahamas-perfect-day-island/explore/chill-island/details And I guess that if the whole South Beach area is under construction, the floating bar will be out of commi
  15. And now it looks like for our July 8th sailing that only Water Park cabanas are available. Daybeds WERE listed before but may be all booked up by now? I was hoping we could book one upon arrival since we'll have some OBC to use, but oh well!
  16. So can you post your experience upon boarding? If things go smoothly? Did you call Royal Caribbean or Club Royale? I have a letter that states what we will be getting, but I just fear getting there and the $$ not actually showing up in our OBC account. Thanks!
  17. When is your cruise? And was it a MyVegas points redemption? Did you get a letter / email stating the amount? Did you talk w/ Club Royale? I don't mean to be greedy, but we were initially going to cancel due to the itinerary change. I would have saved our points for something else, as well as our money (since we'll still be spending quite a bit on airfare, food (in travel, in port, etc.), parking at airport, etc.) for another larger ship / different itinerary. But the offer of OBC persuaded us to stay!
  18. Was anyone else booked on the June / July Majesty of the Seas sailings, via redeeming MyVegas points? These were initially going to Cuba, with a revised itinerary to Nassau & CocoCay due to the cancellation of all Cuba travel. Should be nice but was SO looking forward to Cuba. I got an email, as did some others who have July sailings, saying that we could cancel the cruise or get OBC because of the changed itineraries. They gave us a very specific # of the OBC amount, and said it could be used for anything on board. Note - the email was sent by Casino Royale. Just wondering ho
  19. So the options posted now in cruise planner are: Thrill Waterpark Cabana - $599 (Not interested) Bungalow - At South Beach apparently (not in the item headline, but in the description): $244 Daybed – Chill Island: $149 Do they also have bungalows at Chill Island? Can you just do the clamshell rental onsite (or at least onboard)? In your experience, is this better than the freebie umbrellas? There will only be 2 of us, so trying to balance the expense with the value. But man, those bungalows look cool! We have some significant OBC, but just wondering how mu
  20. Just called and got the Voom & Deluxe Drink Package and the Refreshment Package, totaling $418, including gratuities. I did a drink calculator and it came out to be about 410, but that was JUST with drinks, not with the VOOM, so I think we'll come out ahead, especially over the cost if we signed up onboard. And then just the fact that we won't have to worry about budget, etc. once on board.
  21. So I'm gathering that they have made a lot of progress, but some areas of the "Perfect Day at CocoCay" island will still be under construction? (Coco Beach Club, etc?) We'll be there on July 10th (our 15th wedding anniversary!) so just wondering what we area we should hit. And for those that have been before, do you find an area and plant there or do you move around? Prob depends on if you get a cabana, etc.? Thanks for any insights! Beth
  22. Couple of questions.... Would love to snag the savings of advance booking of the "Deluxe Beverage Drink Package." Seems to save $15-20/day (on the Majesty for a July sailing). So the hubby has been sober for 17 years, but doesn't mind that I drink. I've heard that there are exceptions to the "both in cabin must purchase the same plan" rule. We would be fine w/ the hubs getting the Classic Beverage package if they would allow that. And can supply a letter from his sponsor or doc as needed. Our questions: * I'm sure this would be tricky to book online, since they usually re
