  1. My in-laws are very into status. They constantly brag about being D+ and are super impressed when they meet Pinnacle members. So I like to wear my Platinum pin when we go to the MDR with them so that I can wow them.
  2. Nah, that seems good. The other stuff isn’t a bait and switch, it’s a totally optional addition you can add onto your cruise if it appeals to you personally. But you can absolutely have a fantastic cruise without spending a single extra dime. Enjoy!
  3. I’m definitely going with Matt’s philosophy about anything beyond diamond being just gravy. Should hit diamond in 2023!
  4. TA handles anything dealing with the cruise booking itself. Anything you buy via the cruise planner is yours to handle.
  5. That’s exactly the dilemma - If I can upgrade the cabin, I would rather do that. But I would be much happier putting some credits toward my existing cruises than booking a new one in a cabin I don’t like.
  6. We use the RC Visa card for our RC purchases and have accrued enough points for a new cruise. Here’s the question - can I upgrade from my rewards points cabin? And, if so, how?
  7. I found Adventure delightful on my previous cruise on it and have another trip lined up next Spring. Here’s hoping!
  8. For the price of Star Class, they should toss in Ben and Jerry. And maybe some ice cream too!
  9. Cruising with my in-laws, there was a night after Coco Cay when the kids were too tired for the MDR. So our wait staff sent our usual desserts to be delivered by the in-laws. I was wowed!
  10. On our first cruise, I didn’t get a souvenir because I assumed the shops would be open on disembarkation morning.
  11. RCCL could really use a good comms department. Little things like advance notice of switching ships could create some real good will.
  12. … which, now that I have that picture in my mind, I wish I had photoshop…
  13. It’s Matt, so I’m putting my money on him standing outside the Icon construction with a sign that reads “More Sabor”
  14. Ok, so wait, is my app wrong or is hibachi available for lunch? Because I’m definitely planning on grabbing hibachi for lunch.
  15. Right, so who’s organizing the search party?
  16. I didn’t see it in my Spotify feed either.
  17. Yep, that makes total sense. Thanks!
  18. I was doing some daydream mock bookings and came to realize I have no idea how the pricing system works. I selected the $450 per person option, which with four of us, should come out to about $1,800, minus the current 30% and kids sail free, so like $630. But the total was nearly four times that. What am I missing?
  19. Ship tours are starting to show up on the cruise planner activities page. Hopefully the rest will follow soon.
  20. Interesting. We found the Windjammer to be top notch on Ovation in July. Though we didn’t have to knowingly share the buffet with finger-tasters.
  21. I would love for crew members to have the option, at least. Our cruise over the summer had a large majority of cruisers unmasked and, juxtaposed with the crew all being masked, felt very classist.
  22. We did this in July and would have preferred to explore the town in retrospect. Between tendering and the 3-hour train ride, we didn’t get to see any of Skagway. And there just was not enough to see to justify three full hours.
  23. What about for kids? The rave reviews for Mayachan seem to be for things that matter to adults, like food, drinks, and service, but are there activities for kids there?
  24. If it’s anything like tmobile, don’t count on it at all. Best I could get was 3g. How did we live like that?!?
