  1. Exactly... I never knew Allure's hull was painted blue until I arrived at the port! When you're up close it's obvious... As you mentioned, distance, brightness/color/angle of the light, and angle of view makes it harder to distinguish on Allure's hull painted with the lighter blue color...
  2. We enjoyed the embarkation day lunch back in MAY 2019 when it was still held in Chops Grille... I can see how the quality may be inconsistent now that it's held in the MDR for a larger crowd. Yes, you can cancel any Cruise Planner purchase usually up to 2 days or so prior to your sailing (when they close out the Cruise Planner for purchases)... check out the terms/conditions at the bottom of the page (after clicking on the item to purchase). They will tell you when the CP closes out for your sailing. Our CP closes out at 11:59 PM EDT on 4/22/21 (we sail on 4/24/21... hopefully!)...
  3. Yes, we love that steak lunch! LOL! We may have to reconsider if they make too many changes to the program going forward...
  4. One thing I'm curious about going forward... the Key embarkation day Chops Grille lunch is naturally held during lunch hours in the MDR... starts before/at noon... I'm assuming they have to give you an earlier scheduled boarding time so you don't miss the lunch... hmmm... I guess we'll see once we get back to cruising!
  5. Very true, but fortunately for just my wife and I, it's only $308 in total (currently) for the both of us and well worth it in our experience... we had it for under $20/day last year on Allure (and purchased it for $16/day for our MAY 2020 Oasis cruise this year before the cancellations). I agree that as it creeps toward $30, the value is lost. At a price point close to or under $20/day, if you are also getting the internet package for each person, then you effectively get all of the other Key benefits for the cost of a single glass of wine per day (per person). Unfortunately, there is no
  6. As @MuttMutt stated... you can go into the "ORDER HISTORY" and scroll down to the purchase and expand to see what you paid... Click on "ORDER HISTORY" at the top of the page in the Cruise Planner... Scroll down and click on "VIEW ORDER DETAILS" to expand the section... Naturally, divide the total cost by the number of nights of your cruise to get the daily rate you previously paid (ignore the gratuity amount)... Yeah, we lucked out with $44/day... hope we sail in April!
  7. It's at $21.99 right now for our 2021 Symphony and Oasis cruises. Grabbed it for Symphony last night and may have to grab it for Oasis too this weekend... I'm not confident we'll see the under $20 price point going forward until some sort of normalcy returns. Also wondering if they will actually start to limit the Key under the current climate/restrictions and they will start to sell out.
  8. Oooh no... I guess I better consider making the DBP purchase sooner than later before they get greedy. Decisions, decisions... We got the DBP a couple of months ago for 4/2021 Symphony for $44 (now it's $53)... 10/2021 Oasis is $46 (might have to grab that) and 2/2022 Odyssey is $50 (as @SpeedNoodles just mentioned)...
  9. Oooo... I really like that itinerary... I was telling my wife about that one! Our 8-night FEB 2022 Odyssey sailing is very similar (Aruba, Grand Cayman & Curacao)... I also really like the 8-night Mariner itinerary that stops at both Labadee and Coco Cay plus San Juan, St. Kitts and St. Croix!
  10. I know! We too love the 8-NIGHT Mariner options out of Port Canaveral in 2022! The last 2 itineraries look very interesting as well! Hmmmmm.... so tempting!!! Bermuda, Nassau & Perfect Day! Aruba, Curacao, Dominican Republic & Labadee !!! Labadee & Perfect Day! Plus San Juan, St. Kitts & St. Croix!
  11. I guess only 2021 sailings are currently impacted? My 2022 sailing of 8 nights is fine... I guess they figure this will all be sorted out by then...
  12. Try Quantum class for sure. Anthem is based out of Cape Liberty. Like stated above, Odyssey will be based out of Florida. We booked Odyssey for FEB 2022 out of Ft. Lauderdale and can't wait! It will be our first Quantum class experience.
