  1. Two connecting rooms or one large room. Either way you'll have two reservation numbers- anything over 4 guests you will have an additional reservation number.
  2. I wish you a speedy recovery! For the future, this is a travel agent's literal job, to sit on hold (and get cut off after 3 hours, yes) and fix this for you. But for now, I would just keep trying to call and get it sorted out. You could send an email to [email protected] or reach out on social media but calling is likely the best course of action. Good luck!
  3. Terrapin is brewed in my city. I don't drink beer but we go to that brewery quite often (and have a friend who works there and supplies us with plenty!).
  4. The travel agent invoices are going out just fine, I don't know if it's a systems issue or not.
  5. The same argument could be made for "why would anyone pay for a meal on a cruise when there are so many great included options?"
  6. I will be wearing a mask on my upcoming cruise, the numbers are too high for me to not personally. Do what makes you feel comfortable!
  7. Key word here occasionally! They aren't just handing those out. Group rates are the biggest perk, but they aren't for everyone either.
  8. You want a room as far aft as possible!
  9. It might depend on the ship and such but it's been harder and harder. My advice is always don't book GTY if you want an unobstructed view.
  10. They have been very strict with the GTYs lately, you can't change your room once it's assigned.
  11. When an agency offers an automatic onboard credit for booking a cruise, this is known as “rebating.” The amount of the onboard credit comes out of the agent’s side of the commission. (Not the agency’s side.) With large Online Travel Agencies or Warehouse Agencies such as Costco who do a huge volume of business, their agents make a salary plus small commission so this does not affect their paycheck much, if at all. But for self-employed agents like myself, that onboard credit comes directly out of my pocket.
  12. Yes, but it's not a perfect software. It's still manual checking a lot. You're paying for a TA whether you use one or not, it is built in to your cruise fare.
  13. You can order in-room decorations online, but unfortunately she might see it in advance. https://www.royalcaribbean.com/royalgifts/ Congratulations!
  14. It's always the area I decide to walk through and I always forget.
  15. I don't understand why someone would become a TA just for discounts. There just aren't that many anymore. That's not to say they aren't out there but It's not just "free travel all the time"
