  1. Very interesting observations. Had a sense there was a process that could be followed to "ladder up". I'm not a gambler, but I have family members who are at that level. I enjoy watching.
  2. Will RCL seek a gaming license for a land based casino?
  3. Seems to be a few ships all getting redeployment orders: Apex, Summit, Equinox, Reflection. Some are from the south and central American rotation. Wondering if they can't get the bookings they want. New president has to make her numbers.
  4. I was surprised they even serve popcorn as it tends to be something that can get all over the place like in a movie theater.

  6. Give the D and D+'s a couple of extra drink coupons and give the lounge to the Pinnacles.
  7. This might be a strategy to cull Diamonds and above....
  8. Thousands of sailors an marines have sailed on US nuclear powered vessels. Carriers have as many on board as an Oasis class ship.
  9. https://www.jacksonprogress-argus.com/arena/thestreet/royal-caribbean-makes-big-change-passengers-will-love/article_3446e71d-3ff5-5b88-89e1-6354fa7552ff.html Found a link...
  10. Always thought Celebrity was pretty stingy in the the BC area.
  11. Has anyone heard if the APP will now allow you to view onboard photos to select for purchase? Heard that you won't have to go to a kiosk to view anymore.
  12. This year I've been observing points about 7-days from disembarkation of previous cruise. That's just what me and my wife have seen this year, can't speak for across the board.
  13. It was a great experience when we sailed with them. (Just as the sale happened). They have on-board destination "history buffs" who provide pre-excursion review of local history and politics. Very interesting small ship - you'll probably recognize all your fellow passengers by the end of the cruise.
  14. For some reason - I really like the "Floating Island" dessert offered in CK. Always make sure I make the serving day and time.
  15. We were on a "cabin crawl" on Allure recently and we visited a very interesting family cabin located forward, ocean view, with an inclined window facing forward. The room was a nice size with a curtained cubby area with bunk beds, a queen sized bed and a pull out couch. Can't remember if it was on deck 8, 9 , 10... as we were visiting so many cabins during our venture. Does anyone know what such a cabin is called or classified as? Have friends with kids who want ocean view but don't feel comfortable with kids and a balcony at this time.
  16. But it really needs the Ultimate Abyss
  17. DIfferent ratę structure that offers the ability to purchase a more inclusive experience. They offer "perks" which include pre-paid beverage, tips, internet, and OBC based upon what class and package you elect to purchase. Most of the time is an uncharge from RCL fare (except for lower suite packages), which can be less than Royal when you consider the perks. Also, Celeb ships are medium sized ships without any notable toys for adventure seekers. Only pools, hot tubs and spa. Kids are welcome and they have programs for them, but its ships are not a draw for kids as they do not offer the "attractions". We sail both brands, but Celebrity a little more.
  18. Yep just saw the PDCC stops on the Celebrity site for the 3-4 day cruises. Refection and Beyond. Both nice ships, but with no "toys". Guess a move to get younger families on Celebrity.
  19. Did anyone notice on this sailing that there was no "lounge hogging" going on despite 6700 people? It was a very pleasant experience.
  20. It's sounds like it, but in the past when they've run an ad like this, it ended up being a disappointment or at least underwhelming. I was under the impression that PDCC is very "booked" with current fleet sailings. If this is going that way, expect higher loading on the island. But maybe there will be an isolated stop like they do with Labadee.
  21. I noticed that too which had me scratching my head when Allure was sent first, and Galveston is gateway to lots of families in the central part of TX and surrounding drivable region (OK, LA, MS, AR, MO) Allure doesn't have enough "kid" stuff compared to the competition. Harmony is coming (updated version), but Icon would be a real draw.
