  1. No surprise obc for my February '21 sailing
  2. *immediately dumps entire paycheck into 401k* This is incredible!
  3. I forgot about those rolls!!!! Those are the BEST. By night 3 the waiter gets the point and makes us a special basket with just those LOL
  4. Majesty was our first cruise ever back in 2016 and stayed in an interior room, sailed to Coco Cay before they renovated and we felt we were treated like royalty the whole time! Majesty was our “first love” and the reason we will sail. Now, 4 years later, we are truly spoiled by offerings of the larger classes and would find it difficult to sail on anything less going forward. Mainly because we love more options for bars and activities and places to eat. That being said......at this point, I would sail on Majesty in a heartbeat if she was the only one sailing for the unforeseen future. I
  5. This was very cool to listen to! Thanks for shaking things up for us. Great questions from everyone!
  6. 1. Visiting Coco Cay for the 1st time!! 2. A revamped muster drill would be awesome!
  7. Really looking forward to seeing some form of cruising take place soon so we can gauge the aftermath and read about what people are saying about their on board experiences!
  8. My February Odyssey sailing was cancelled (but I didn't have it on the master list anyway), so we moved it to Oasis of the Seas sailing Feb 21. First time on Oasis, so not too disappointed, and I got an extra night out of it!
  9. What about the Cruise Planner FCC? I had $900 in Cruise Planner Credit for a sailing in August. I spent ~$700 and have ~$200 left unspent in my planner. Do I lose the $200 I didn't spend, and they start from scratch? If they do, I would still end up with roughly $900 (I think). Or do I keep the unspent $200 and then I get an additional 125% toward the $700 I spent on packages? I would just like to have the original $900 back to my account, but I'm not sure if it works that way?
  10. White Claw was served on Mariner May 2020. I feel like not alot of people knew about it, they weren't displayed or advertised as much as Truly.
  11. We snagged 40% off. It was originally $89 for my February sailing and we just cancelled and rebooked for $51.
  12. So I’ve never done a dining experience on the ship, but I have cruise planner credit burning a hole in my pocket. For those who know what Kobe’s Steakhouse is, is that what it is like? Kobe has it set up where you get soup, salad and then rice, noodles and choice of main meat, and sushi offered if you want. The “Izumi habachi experience” is $45 on sale for my sailing. Does that cover everything on the menu? When I look at the sample menu I only see sushi and soups and salads. I’m ready for the experts to let me know! P.S. the UDP is only $119. But Izumi charges a cover charge wit
  13. Same, this is all I received when I opted for 125% OBC. Once I knew I needed to start applying credit to my August sailing, I called RC cruise planner line and they applied in 5 mins to my cruise planner. Now I can go in a use it on anything I want which is nice.
  14. You are correct! I did it this morning! I cancelled on the website and they put it back on my FCC cruise planner credit. I went from $130 in leftover cruise planner FCC to $320, yay! Now I just need to actually set sail in August!
  15. Aww I miss those too! I also miss seeing all the updated cruise compasses posted ...the little things.
  16. Has anyone applied their Cruise Planner FCC and then seen a price drop afterward? Our DX Drink Package is on sale (after I just booked it 2 days ago at a higher price). Should I cancel online and rebook? Or call them? I have never cancelled and rebooked cruise planner stuff before, let alone while using FCC. Just curious what yall are doing in these cases.
  17. That's cool to read and starting getting an idea of what to expect! A couple things that caught my attention- 1. full service buffet. And 2. no mention about changes to their muster drill (unless I missed it?). I'm wondering how they are going to handle the social distancing during the one time we truly are packed in like sardines- the muster drill! I can't wait for RCCL to post about their protocols. I imagine that the cruise lines probably are keeping similar protocols to each other, for the most part anyway. #StillGoing
  18. I have say, I had the quickest phone call with RCCL in 6 months this morning! I wanted to go ahead and apply my 125% cruise planner credit to our August sailing, so I called the cruise planner line and literally had zero wait time, I was connected immediately. I paused in disbelief when the sweet woman answered. It was refreshing after the hours upon hours many of us have had to wait on the phone for our cancelled sailings (Until many of us smartened up and snagged an MEI TA ) It's pretty awesome having that leftover amount on my planner. Here's to August guys! #StillGoing
  19. I also received my 125% cruise planner credit today as well. I was happy with the amount. I did see how it says you have to apply it to a single sailing, which I wasn't expecting, but it's totally ok! I know we'll figure out something to apply it to outside of our drink packages. I do have a question as I might have missed it along the lines..let's say, I use it all. What happens if the price drops on my drink package? Normally I would cancel and rebook. But how does it work in this case using a FCC? Do I get that difference back as a cruise planner credit again?
  20. My family and I absolutely will be cruising at first chance. As serious as all this has been, I don't want the fear of "what if" to overrule the possibility of adventure for me. Just as with any disease or pandemic, it very well could hit me or my family at any moment, but the opportunity for memories and living life to its fullest outweighs that fear of there not being a vaccine yet. #StillGoing
  21. Hey! Have you received anything yet? Mine said 05/14 as well, but no emails. Just curious. My final payment on my rebooked cruise is due Monday so i'm like....antsy LOL.
  22. haha! Isn't it sad that we get excited over price JUMPS these days know the possibility it holds! Fingers crossed for you!!!
  23. We were on Mariner in December and we had attendants as well for the icecream, which was fine with us!
  24. I've done sugar free redbull and vodka when I need a break from my sugar high. Kraken and Diet is my fave, but I also enjoy a Skinny Pirate (Diet coke and Captain). If you ask the bartender what they have in diet (like gingerale or coke or sugar free juices) they can whip you something special.
  25. I believe when I was on Mariner in December they had White Claws. It might depend on the ship because cruise planner does show Truly in the picture as mentioned above.
