    Wendylee got a reaction from teddy in The WAITING struggle...   
    We will be on the Allure a week from Sunday and can't wait. The Corona Virus threw us for a loop, but after careful research we are moving ahead. We come from cold country and want to get out of these arctic temps.

    Wendylee got a reaction from WAAAYTOOO in Packing Cubes -- What brand / type do you all use for your longer trips?   
    Love my packing cubes, I use them to organize by clothing type, cosmetics. When I get to my destination, ship or hotel I do not unpack the cubes. I put them directly in drawers or cabinets already organized and ready to go. The exception would be my hang up items.....I can always find everything.

    Wendylee reacted to Jim S in Diamond plus out of concierge lounges   
    Yes, I think RCCL have created a monster that they cannot feed. The number Diamond and Diamond Plus members is increasing dramatically every year. I think RCCL should introduce a new Crown & Anchor loyalty level at, say, 350 points. Access to the Concierge lounge could be awarded from that level. By the way, I am Diamond Plus with 262 points so I am not suggesting this to benefit myself, but merely suggesting the change as way to address the problem of the overcrowded lounges. The Diamond lounge could then be restricted to Diamond Plus members with less than 350 points. Diamond members would receive the normal 3 free drinks on their sea pass each night.
    Only my opinion. Hope I don’t upset anybody.

    Wendylee got a reaction from MikeK in WAPO: The Demise of Formal Nights on Cruises: How dress codes are tearing passengers apart   
    We have dressed for dinner  ( I find that fun to get all gussied up ) and sometimes not. I am there to have a nice vacation not to be thinking: "oh no, someone may think i am underdressed". Personally I don't care what people choose to wear, I pay no attention what so ever and enjoy our cruise.

    Things do happen on cruises and I have never had a perfect cruise. You seem to have gotten more then your share. I make a point of having a great time and don't discount my own reaction to things. My own attitude can have a major impact on how I process the negative happenings.......ok, what is plan B when I have no control over current events.

    Sorry for your troubles, vacations that don't work out are a drag, so I feel for you there for sure. RCC has their policies that affect everyone on the cruise when unexpected events happen to the current passengers and the next ones that are coming on board. Looks like  an issue with your follow-up and RCC's failure to do what they said they would do for you. If someone else out there was left whole after this ordeal, then you should be too. Keep at it to see if there is resolution for you, but don't expect to be an exception as they are dealing with up to 5000 guests, but defiantly get what is coming to you that is similar to what other folks on your booked cruise received. By all means find a cruise line that fits your needs so if this happens again you will feel you are being treated fairly. Good vibes for the next cruise for you...take care!

    Wendylee got a reaction from YOLO in What's your favorite ship and why?   
    We have been on the Oasis, Quantum and Allure. We both like the Allure for the atmosphere, crew and the many things t do. It feels like home to us. We are heading on another Allure cruise in March.

    I use Google flights, if you log in you can enable the price tracker and you will get an email whenever prices change.  I just booked a flight this week, Google caught a price decrease that only lasted for a few hours.

    In addition  keep in mind the cost of tipping the Royal Genie in Star Class is much more substantial  then other crew members.

    Wendylee got a reaction from Ray in Currency   
    We recently took a river cruise though Eastern Europe and needed 4 different currencies and ordered them from our bank. It took a couple of days to receive the funds. We had enough currency of each type, mostly for pin money. We used our widely accepted credit card with no fees for anything else we needed. It worked out great for us this way.

    Wendylee reacted to Jzx1103 in Anyone currently on Ovation or were on last weeks sailing, please help!!!   
    I know this is a long shot but any help would be greatly appreciated. We were on last sailing that ended on 9/20 on the Ovation. Our stateroom number is 13136, we believe we left two Wells Fargo Envelopes full of cash totaling well over $4000 on the desk counter in our stateroom. We must've forgotten to pack it after leaving our stateroom attendant her tips before leaving our room. Our stateroom attendant's name is Grace. If anyone onboard sees this please ask our stateroom attendant or guest services if any kind soul turned it in. Or if anyone on last weeks sailing retrieved something, please let me know. I'm posting this because I still believe there are people who would turn it in as opposed to keeping it all even though I mostly consider the money lost. But figured I try my luck. Much appreciated!

    I am Diamond and heading to Diamond +. I think it is worth it to get into the  Concierge Lounge and that perk alone makes it worth to for me for Diamond +. We always travel on the Oasis and Quantum class of ships. I think it is a matter of preference and what is important to each cruiser.....I like all the perks I am currently receiving in Diamond too and going to plus is another cherry on the cake.

    Wendylee got a reaction from WAAAYTOOO in Oasis Class Ship to Australia?   
    I would love it  if an Oasis class ship went to Australia, but will settle with Quantum Class I guess. I did take a different cruise line from Honolulu to Sydney, we did stop at the tahitian islands and it took 17 days to get to Sydney from Honolulu.

    It doesn't matter who these guys work for, they should adhere to their customer's, (Royal Caribbean)  customer service standards. I would report this rude behavior so Royal Caribbean  can address it with their vendor.

    Not looking good for the Bahamas. That storm is a monster. We are supposed to go to Coco Cay the first week in October. I’m glad to hear they evacuated the island.
    Prayers for those in the path.....

    I am more concerned about the local residents that work on the island and the clean up and sorting of their personal life they will have to do. This historic storm will change the northern Bahamas as we know it today. Prayers to all.
