  1. Don't worry.

Double Points is available to existing Gold, Platinum, Emerald, Diamond, Diamond Plus, and Pinnacle Crown & Anchor Society members. Double Points provides Crown & Anchor Society members double Cruise Points on sailings departing on May 1, 2021 – September 30, 2022 (“Eligible Sailings”).
  2. Can you please tell me where the updated information is referenced ? As of this moment the terms and conditions do not reflect the information that you have provided. https://www.royalcaribbean.com/terms-and-conditions/promotions The terms and conditions still state "Double Points applies to new individual and group named bookings, and named existing bookings on all Eligible Bookings made before January 31, 2021. Double Points is available to existing Gold, Platinum, Emerald, Diamond, Diamond Plus, and Pinnacle Crown & Anchor Society members. Double Points provides Crown &am
  3. Well you live and you lean. This is the response that I received from RCI customer service. “I apologize for the confusion, I used the incorrect words and thank you for the clarification and understanding.” Double Points on sailings: As you indicated, double points offer is eligible on all your sailings and it only excludes Chinese citizens not departures out of China.
  4. I hope that you are well. I just got a response from RCI with regards to an enquiry that I made about the Crown & Anchor Society Double Points Offer. The reason for the enquiry was because I was unable to enter anyone's C&A number during the booking process, which is a condition of receiving the double points. I received a response which included the following " Please be advised that all your reservations qualify for double cruise points as they were created before the 31st of January 2020 and its applicable for all sailings (Except China departures)."
  5. Thankyou all for your responses. I have just checked my cruise planner and it is even worse than before. After I updated my spreadsheet with non sale prices, low and behold there is another sale on. Most of the items that I had booked earlier that I had updated outside of any sale are exactly the same price WITH the new sale offers. The Private Photo Session now is 60% off, however the price has gone up 21% when no discount was offered. First sale the price was 70% off $159.99. Sale over the price was $ 159.99 New sale the price is 60%
  6. I have a 7 Night Perfect Day Bahamas Cruise in October this year on the Oasis of the Seas. Day 3 is a stop in Orlando from 13:00 - 21:00 I used to live in Jacksonville, however I don't know much about things to do in Orlando that can be done on an afternoon day trip. The shore excursions offered by RCI range between approx.. $50-85 per adult. There is myself, partner and two daughters 10 and 12. Am I better off staying on the ship ?
  7. Many people think that sailings may not resume before March, 2021. What do you think will happen to the "Crown & Anchor Society Double Points Offer", each time the sailings are further pushed back / cancelled will they just add 12 months to the last round of push backs / cancellations ? A couple of other questions based on the RCI website Double Points Offer, it states that "Single Cruise & Suite" get 3 points a night. I don't wont to sound pedantic as they are NOT using plain English. Are they simply saying that a single cruiser booked in a suite gets 3 points
  8. With the recent ring in the savings sale, I spent $2,000 on shore excursions, photo packages and other treats to be enjoyed on board the vessel during our cruise. I was quite proud of myself and thought of all of the savings that I had just successfully made. (Just in time) After the sale was over I entered the new post sale price information in to my spreadsheet and to be honest I was disgusted. Not one of the items that I purchased matched what was advertised with regards to the discount that was advertised during the sale. In fact 3 of the items, the
  9. Captain and First Mate 2-Pack Cruise Lanyard & Waterproof ID Key Card Holder Clip picture. May the games begin !!!
  10. You can always start a debate with these ones !!!! A pack of two, one is labeled Captain and the other First Mate. You tell me who is going to get the Captains Lanyard or should you ask your wife first ? https://www.amazon.com/Waterproof-Retractable-Organizer-Essential-Accessories/dp/B07S851HTB/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=2-Pack%2BCruise%2BLanyard%2B%26%2BWaterproof%2BID%2BKey%2BCard%2BHolder%2BClip.%2BMatching%2BRetractable%2BBadge%2BReel.%2BTravel%2BOrganizer%2BBag.%2BEssential%2BCruise%2BShip%2BAccessories.%2BCaptain%2BFirst%2BMate%2B1%2BBlue%2B%26%2B1%2BLite%2BBlue&qid
  11. Well the best intention was there. I am not surprised that that didn't happen to me. I found out what extreme paranoia was, that was for certain. I was convinced a few times that she new when she made totally innocent comments. As you can see from the video, I made it all the way to the end. More surprises are already in the pipeline, all we need is the ships to start sailing.
  12. I'm going on Oasis of the Seas (Sorry about the typo)

  14. You've thought about it, you've dreamt about it, you've researched it - Are you going to do something about it? Lets have a look and see what I did. Many Many Many years ago, my parents took the whole family on cruises around the south pacific. I still have a hand carved fisherman's sail boat model from Fiji with 1977 carved into the side. (Hmmm 43 years ago) Back then you could throw coins over the side of the ship when in port and the local would swim down and pick them up, how times have changed. We are addict's, all it took for me then was a taste 43 yea
