  1. I wear a few different pairs of specs and depending on their design, I will either get fogging or not regardless of if I put the nose bridge over the top of the mask. A little tip if you can’t get your glasses to stop fogging. Get a small piece of tissue paper and fold it into a thin strip. Place it under your mask just below your nose bridge. It almost always eliminates fogging. It is a little troublesome whenever you take off your mask, but it was something we learnt at work since we have to wear one all day.
  2. Oh, I didn’t know there was an antigen test at the terminal now. In other news, super excited for you. Sad that the seafood tower is gone though. ?
  3. I personally have never seen a no tipping sign here. Tipping itself is getting slightly more common with ride hailing and food delivery apps becoming the norm. Whenever its raining (which is quite often) we tend to tip them just for the slight inconvenience it causes them, but of course it's not expected. And yeah, with ride hailing apps, flagging a taxi down is now a thing of the past lol
  4. As someone from a country where tipping isn't the norm, it gives me a little anxiety whenever I'm tipping. Am I tipping too much, or worse, too little? I feel like the staff are in the back scowling because we short changed them.
  5. Yep I received 1 right when I booked the sailing even though it was over 6 months away. I was like, that can’t be right. Even before covid, check in was 90 days earliest
  6. Thanks everyone Yeah that's what I was thinking too since there is different accounts for both getting and not getting it. That's good to know. I remember sticking to the mini bar last time as I was worried we would get charged for it
  7. Guess I just want to clarify on special case scenarios where the dining and beverage packages can and cannot be used. For the most part, I understand what each of the packages include, but what about the small clauses that is not immediately apparent. Also, what is part of the package itself vs Suite/Star class benefits UDP - Does it include food served in snack locations around around the ship that cost extra (e.g La Patisserie / Bar foods) DBP - Does it include drinks that are ordered from room service? Does it differ if you're in a suite with free room service (i.e Sky class) or star class with in suite dining? - Starbucks isn't included but what about drinks from Vitaly Bar on ships that have them. While I know it may differ from ship to ship, curious on what has your experience been for those who have purchased these in the past.
  8. I hope it’s only temporary. I’ll be really sad if it’s a permanent change
  9. I filled out this form for my CPAP as well. They will provide an extension cord as well as distilled water for your humidifier (If you're using one) They did forget to put the extension cord and water in my stateroom on the first night, but a quick call to guest services got that sorted real quick
  10. In general, the first few emails were spaced around 3 - 5 days between mails. With then having to assist more immediate guests. Once it got closer to the cruise, emails basically went daily for the most part.
  11. @Leikela Awesome! I remember getting crazy excited once those Genie emails started coming in. Eli was amazing. I’m pretty type A as a person and she was very accommodating to my requests and plan changes. Super friendly but not overly overbearing. I wouldn’t mind getting her as our genie for my Jan cruise too.
  12. I’ve only been in Star class, well actually cruise in general, once so I can only offer what I experienced. I too sailed from Singapore with covid restrictions so mine may be very similar to @Leikela This may differ with others more experienced with star class and from other locations Speciality dining is only available when the restaurants themselves are open, meaning lunch or dinner time. For this we did order in advance with our genie. For all other room service, especially those late in the night, we called room service ourselves. Reason being that we figured the genie was resting and we didn’t want to bother her. You can only get stuff from the room service menu at those times anyway so no real issue I remember reading somewhere that bar drinks are not included in room service charges, meaning that even though you have the drinks package, it does not apply to room service. For my cruise, we ordered drink with in suite dining through genie and once through regular room service. Both were not charged. I will say though that it’s definitely not gonna be the same as having a drink at the bar, since it is prepared before hand and sitting there for some time before reaching your hands. Can’t give any info on alcohol since my family doesn’t partake but yes mini bar is stocked with your choice of drinks. Maybe alcohol can be one of these
  13. I’ve slept in various sofa beds over the years. Most of them on vacation and I owned a sofa bed for a good portion of time too. After trying the sofa bed on Quantum’s OLS, I can safely say that it’s the comfiest sofa bed I’ve used. No, it’s definitely not comparable to a real bed, but it’s no where near as bad as many sofa beds out there
  14. I’m not one to complain too much about certain restrictions. Wearing masks outdoors? Sure. Bars close at 1030pm? That’s fine. Shows are reservation only and Low capacity? Understandable. But for me, this just goes beyond what I would tolerate. For people who bought drinks and dining packages, they would be refunded those as it doesn’t apply with the restrictions. But for star class, as those were included to begin with, I would say it’s more a drawback. Essentially, you’re not compensated whatsoever for not being able to dine in. Sure, they may give you an extended menu for in suite dining, but it would still not come close to the value of the drinks and dining package on its own
