    Looking again, I cannot see the current price of the DBP that I purchased for my Harmony GC, but I can see the current price for the UDP and the Coco Beach Club.  Weirdness.

    I noticed that my CP said that I had already purchased the DBP. Great! But, I didn't. I checked my order history and it was not there. See below. Hey! Maybe another intern sale!!
    So, this leads to an interesting quandary: What if I did want to purchase the DBP? I can't the way the CP is glitched right now. I can't cancel it and there is no "add to cart" option.

    Sorry...misread, I guess.  I still was able to see the current price in the offers so whatever the "glitch" is it comes and goes.

    This is not the case for purchased items from my cruise planners.  All of the specialty restaurants and drinks/VOOM packages that I have purchased are still showing up.  I do price comparisons every day.

    Go to order history and you will find everything you have already purchased...click on one and it shows the price you paid.
    I was in my daughter's planner and saw that same thing and it actually looked like she had booked the deluxe drink package which I know she did not!  So I checked her order history and saw she has 4 refreshment packages... 😊

    We've gone through this before where occasionally people experience this, but the majority don't.  I'm seeing all of the current prices on items that I've already purchased.

    We were on Oasis 2 weeks ago. Here are 2 pics of balcony rooms deck 9. Seemed like new carpet and new couch. Furniture probably not new but it seemed fresh and clean to me.

    @jticarruthers, yes, but most cruisers are not Diamond + and that is what RCL is banking on right now at that price.  Plus, other things when it comes to the price.
    IE.  My hubby and I are not Diamond and will not be for a while even though we sail every 9 months (7 night + cruise balcony).   I think I am more of a consumer they are banking on at that price than you....no offense.  I am loyal, I am purchasing the middle of the road cabin.
     I get every a.m. an iced coffee with an extra shot of espresso from the starbucks (cafe latitudes) on our way to the MDR for breakfast.   Don't know the actual cost, but lets say 6 - 7 bucks  Breakfast we always ask for the squeezed OJ.  Can't stand the fake stuff.  Guessing $3.  I am officially at $10 and I have yet to eat breakfast.  Husband hits the Gym after breakfast.  I go to the Solarium.  He hits the freestyle machine to fill his cup with a Powerade, I grab a bottle of H2O.  It is now 9:00 a.m. and we are at $13.     11 a.m. rolls around and we hit the bar for a cocktail...He is a Lava Flow fan.  Me I will stick with margarita on the rocks.  BAM  we are at $26.  Always ask for a bottle of H2O, BAM 29.  I never order another cocktail until I finish the bottle of water 1st.  Lunch @ 12:30. Be it in the MDR or WJ we get a soda.  Now I am at 32...again I don't know how much a soda goes for, guessing it is $3 a pop.  Back to the solarium @ 1:30 after lunch and grab my 2nd cocktail for the day.  I am now at 45.  Mind you only 2 alcoholic bevs all day long.  Still following my rule, I also get another bottle of water.  I am at 48 and it is 1:30  3:30 I call it a day at the pool to hang on the balcony.  Hit cafe latitudes and get myself a frappucino.  I am at $55.  Hubby refills his cup with Cherry Coke Zero.  He is at 51.  We always do a pre-dinner cocktail.  At 68 now   Dinner glass of wine, followed with a cappuccino and amaretto shot.  At @ 95.  (total alcohol bev = 5)  Off to show and get a bottle of water.   I am at 98.    Show over and I get 1 more bottle of water.  101. Granted that is a sea day.  Yet, you can see how someone like me can easily be a losing money maker for RCL.  Additionally, I think I ran low on the numbers.  My SoS cruise is also hitting both Labadee and Coco Cay, that means I am using the package 2 of my port days.  I have 2 sail days.  I am only  at a non RCL port 2x on my 8 day cruise.  Those port days also are unique.  I will stop at OSJ from noon to 10 pm.  We will be eating breakfast, lunch and dinner on the ship.  We will get off the ship after lunch, back on for dinner, off SoS after dinner, back on for the late show...IOWS will use our alcohol pkg that day too.  St. Thomas is a short day in port, depart at 4.  That means again, we will be back on the ship by 2:30 or so.  Using the package again, because as we walk off the ship we will walk off with a couple of bottles of water.  Get back on, change and hit the Solarium bar/pool for sail away.
    I get that 84 for my cruise is OMG compared to when we paid 57 prior.  I am not saying I will buckle and pay for it, but I do get the rise in cost.  I also believe it will come down since they need to make cruising affordable again, and $1600 for a 7 night cruise on top of the dining package, excursions like the Coco Cay Beach club pass, plus the cabin will price them out of the market.

    We were on Oasis last week and did the 3 night package. It was perfect! Gave us 3 nights of scheduled nice meals and 4 nights to be flexible. Lobster night on 2nd formal night in MDR was great. My husband had 9 lobster tails! Yes, we were those people but oh well. Made reservations the 1st night in Solarium; good way to kick things off with something light and delicious. Make your 3 night dining reservations as soon as you get on the ship at any restaurant so you get your choice of days and times.

    KBrad got a reaction from Tmorin in Show reservations on harmony   
    I too worried about that. We were able to pre- book Aqua show and Cats but in reality all the shows we could  get into with ease in the stand by line, just get there about 30 min early. We were on Oasis with 6000 people. It never felt crowded.  Don’t stress about it. You’ll have so much to see and do

    With the 3 night dining package you will get $35 to spend at Izumi... more than enough. And Chops, Giovannis and 150 order whatever off the menu all included. Playmakers and Portside you pay a la carte but both are very reasonably priced. You’ll love Oasis. Be sure to make your reservations as soon as you get on the ship to secure the nights and times you want

    I was finally able to reserve 2 spots for the comedy show. It automatically added it on for the last night. I guess all other nights were sold out and these spots just opened up.

    Probably means there are no more spots left but you can always keep checking in case of cancellations or just try the standby line once onboard
