  1. We were meant to be disembarking today :’(
  2. We picked up on this issue within a week. Here we are over 90 days later waiting for a refund. Wife currently on phone to RC now but I expect we will be fobbed off again ? Sad really as this will make me think twice booking with them again. Our first ever cruise was with them and we loved it so much we booked 2 more...
  3. I kept track on the notepad on my phone. It was scary to be honest. Was never falling over drunk but we were both tipsy a good few evenings. The package cost £1k but at ship prices we spent around £4K. I know this will scare some people but we had a great time and were no trouble! I’d copy and paste the list here but might break the site ? Enjoy, Nikkoo
  4. This. 110%. Even if it’s double the price, which it won’t be! Was great and so so so so so so easy.
  5. We parked on port last year and it was great. Parked up and they took our cases from us as soon as we got them out of the car and roof box, there was 6 of us. Then just a 3 min walk to checking in in the terminal. 20 mins later was on the ship ? It was our first cruise and one of the many things we worried about. Booked 2 more while we were on board we loved it that much ? Have a great cruise and look after the ship, we’ll be on it in August ? Nikkoo
  6. That’s really great news ? Its showing interiors and ocean views as fully booked now for our dates!! Hope a few people have saved a few quid Nikkoo
  7. I’ve got to say it’s a great package. I was not going to get it. About 4 weeks out we talked ourselves into it. We had a blast! Did not get drunk, just occasionally tipsy. It’s amazing how much you will drink when it’s hot. For fun we kept a list. Even on port days when we got off the boat we always drank enough. It adds up really quickly when a spirit and mixer or glass of wine is $12-13! I would not sail without, even if I ever get to diamond plus. Have a great cruise, Nikkoo
  8. Explorer had a motor bike when we were on her back in August, no car though!
  9. Mine was August 2020, so this year for 14 nights. Next year is still out of reach expensive for us as a family of 6 ?
  10. It might be a uk thing right now. We had symphony booked for feb 21, just for the 2 of us, and that is coming in £550 cheaper right now. As we booked on board for that one we were told we could reprice once. It’s a 23% discount so even though it’s a year away I can’t see us saving much more. If you’re in the uk reprice this weekend. You could well save a lot more than the deposit you would lose!!! Peace, Nikkoo
  11. I’d say keep on checking the price. We saved a huge amount today on a 14 day cruise out of Southampton going this summer. I had settled on paying far too much as we loved our first one. Today we got around 30% off, but lost our deposit as we are in the uk. Still a saving of over £3000!
  12. Even the things we had on the planner are a bit cheaper except the deluxe beverage package. I can’t believe we have saved this much, I hope others have too. I think the group cruise is 2 weeks or so before ours, be good if you all saved money too ?
  13. Hey guys, We just rebooked our 2020 cruise out of Southampton and saved over £3000 even after losing our £900 deposit. Was for 3 interior rooms Being from the uk we can’t reprice but even losing the deposit we saved thousands! If you’re already booked reprice quick before they realise ? Good luck guys, Nikkoo
  14. I would suggest you price the cruise with the unlimited dining and drinks packages (both of them) and then price it again when they do this offer next. You may find the ‘offer’ is more expensive, I know we did! Much like ALL offers I have seen from RC, they have a price you’re going to pay them and regardless of %off or deal it changes little.... unless they make a mistake! In the UK we CANNOT reprice the cruise if the price goes down, so once it’s booked stop checking! Also I think I saw this offer last year and it did not include speciality restaurants... So maybe price just with drinks package (£45/day per person on average)
  15. It’s been like this for 2 months... maybe the uk market just does not do the unlimited dining and they need to fill the seats?
  16. Just checked. Nothing. It even says multiple entrees and multiple places every night. Feels far too cheap...
  17. The 3 night one is priced at £70 ish... This is for a 14 night cruise on Anthem if that makes a difference. thanks, Nikkoo
  18. Sorry photo went in twice! They both have the same description. Both are unlimited dining. We have bought the cheaper one, of course! Just wondering if we have missed something...
  19. Oh... also a photo of you pops up so nobody else can use it. Very clever! Nikkoo
  20. Hey, We found they always told us before making if we had to pay extra. Every drink you get you hand over your sea pass regardless of package. It has your drink package on it, age, room number, if you have prepaid tips... everything! For the surf and stream we got a bit of paper with our unique code on it when we checked in. hope this nailed all your questions and have a great cruise. Nikkoo
  21. Also, to be honest our kids used to visit us all the time 4 x 14-16 and nobody batted and eye lid. I would say not ruthlessly enforces. But the 30 min rule with saving chairs was. Thankless task that guy had but he done well ?
  22. When we were on there during the summer it had 18 on a bit of paper taped over the 16. Maybe this is a Europe or uk thing? Just a thought, Nikkoo
