    ChrisK2793 got a reaction from tcneal in RCL TMZ Story - True or False?   
    And yet they always seem to be the first ones to report things that have ended up being true 99.9%  of the time

    The original article clearly says the FCC being offered was for 125% of the fair paid ...... do you REALLY think the charter company was going to give the nurses an extra 25% out of their own pockets for next year’s cruise if Royal had already refunded the money to the charter company for the nurses?

    The stock market is just ridiculous at the moment. It is now only 13% down and yet the economy is shutdown, many companies have zero sales, thousands will go out of business, we will hit over 20 million unemployed by the end of the month, there is going to be credit and mortgage issues to come, companies will be posting quarterly results showing <20% of forecasts.. No one really understand what the market is going to do, but we all do know the economy is in the shitter right now.
    If you have cash on hand and are patient, there is money to be made in the stock market at least. If you brought RCL under $30, I would sell as soon as possible. That stock will be going down again, as will the market.

    ChrisK2793 got a reaction from WAAAYTOOO in 2 bedroom ATS vs Star Loft Suite w/kid   
    We’re in a crown loft facing the rear of the ship right now on Oasis, getting off this morning.  Ours is 1738 which connects to the Star Loft next door.  When the Aquatheater Show is going on it is VERY LOUD in the room. The one night this cruise that we were in the room while it was going on, you could hear the music BLASTING from 830 to 930pm and again from 1045pm to 1145pm.  We didn’t care overall because we’re not usually in our room at this time of night and were only in it that night because our 8yo wasn’t feeling well.  But if you have a child who goes to bed at 7pm, I could see BOTH the Star Loft and the ATS being way too loud for him to sleep anytime the Aquatheater show is going on.

    ChrisK2793 got a reaction from Baked Alaska in Booked 8 tickets with the intent of only 4 boarding. Drink package problems   
    I don’t understand this ....... it sound like whoever booked it just wanted to make the COMMISSION on the cost of the extra people who they know aren’t going.  I currently have a 2 bedroom grand suite booked on Independence in august for THREE of us ...... the room holds EIGHT people ...... at no time was I told I have to book 5 more fake people in the room to book it ..... SOMETHING IS SUPER FISHY HERE

    ChrisK2793 reacted to Atlantix2000 in ? On cash tip vs tip on Sea Pass in specialty dining .....   
    You can hear that rumor about plenty of land restaurants too but no one really knows for sure.  Waiters will always prefer cash because then no one knows how much they actually received.  That lets some of them hide their earnings (whether to avoid taxes or to avoid splitting with others).

    ChrisK2793 got a reaction from Ogilthorpe in Unlimited Dining and Royal App   
    If you happen to be staying in a Grand Suite or better, the suite concierge will send you a welcome email about a week before the cruise ......... you can reply to that email and ask them to book the restaurants and times you want for each day and it will all be booked for you before the cruise.

    ‘they’re on a 4 night cruise for $96 UDP ..... at $179 , I’m guessing you’re on a 7 day cruise ...... Theirs is $24/day, yours is $25.50/day ..... just as good a deal.

    ChrisK2793 reacted to emsff02 in Unlimited Dining Plan - SOLD OUT!!   
    Sorry to hear this. This is the reason why many recommenced that if you know you want a particular thing, purchase so that you know you have it, then watch for price drops and repurchase at the lower because you are never guaranteed that the price will drop and may miss out.

    ChrisK2793 reacted to Brobbins246 in Izumi hibachi Explained   
    For a "normal" specialty restaurant like Chops or Jamie's Italian, this is recommended because they can fit the two children onto the reservation last minute and configure the tables without much trouble.  But for Hibachi, there's a limit of 8 to 10 seats around the grille, and they often sell out in advance, so adding the kids on the ship might be harder.  I would recommend paying the $45 for all 4 of you now to reserve the seats, and get your OBC on the ship for the difference.  That's what I did with one child on my cruise.

    ChrisK2793 reacted to AshleyDillo in Which ship for TransAtlantic with almost 10yo in Fall 2021   
    I would say that the ships would be nearly equal in which ship would be more fun for a 10 year old.  They both have tons of activities that would appeal to that age range.  Since you've done the Oasis class more often with it being in your backyard all the time, I would give Odyssey a try.  Having the separate 2nd bedroom might be a nice treat.  The suite lounges on the Quantum class ships don't have the same draw as Deck 17 on Oasis class, so cabin location isn't as big of a factor.
    The other direction to take would be to consider whether you (or your kiddo) would prefer pre-cruise in Barcelona or Civitavecchia/Rome.

    It really depends on your server ....... we were just on Harmony 1/19-26 and ...... all 3 of the nights that we ate at 150 Central Park with the UDP our server (who we tipped well and asked for every night after the first)  insisted on bringing out an extra entree each night for us “to try” ..... he actually would have brought 2 extra entrees each night but we said please no lol

    Sometimes there is onboard credit available. Currently, there is $50 on board credit available for 25,000 gold Vegas coins (you have 66,020).

    It's the gold coin amount and sadly 66k is not very much. He does have a ton of coins that he could play with and earn more gold though.

    ChrisK2793 reacted to WAAAYTOOO in Where to report issues? Email addresses?   
    Without knowing the nature of your concern, have you demanded to speak with the Hotel Director ?  As we have learned from others with onboard issues, it is unlikely that you will get any results once you leave the ship.  It is important that you voice your concerns before you leave the ship. Once you speak to the Hotel Director and still don’t get a resolution, THEN try and contact someone at Headquarters.

    Personally, I’d never want some random stranger to unpack and put my stuff away.  I could see if it were your own personal butler at home who does that stuff for you all the time and knows how and where you like things, but I can’t see how a stranger putting your stuff where they think is good would be convenient.  I’d be going crazy after trying to figure out where everything was.

    You need the original and I will share two pieces of advice that you didn't ask for.  Either before you go or when you return order a copy of everyone's birth certificate from the state they were born in.  We have an extra one for each of us in case something happens so we aren't scrambling at the last minute.  Second item is once you have that second "official" birth certificate for the kids go ahead and get their passports.  The way things are going it is best to have them for flying and any other type of travel.  I know it is an expense but it really isn't that much per year and then you can we ready to travel at the last minute should the mood strike you.

    ChrisK2793 reacted to Balsam in entrees at specialty dining   
    How much do you need to eat?
    Not sure why people have a fixation on getting multiple entrees (or Main Courses as they are known everywhere except the US)?
    If you're really hungry, you can have two appetisers, multiple sides, and three desserts. Add in one main course, and that should satisfy anyone. If you're still hungry,  head up to the Windjammer for a second meal.
    Personally, I think anyone that complains they don't get enough food on a RC cruise is either a greedy moose, or a complete miser trying to get everything they can for their money. I've never heard of any cases of passengers starving on cruise ships..
