Emerald (4/7)



  1. This is a great question. I would also be curious to hear to hear what the ship guru's have to say. Our first cruise was on the Grandeur and it was lovely. Now that Enchantment is in Baltimore, we'd like to check her out.
  2. Turns out they didn't charge me either...for the cabin move anyway. I am embarrassed to admit I forgot a very important detail that @Ampurp85 helped me to remember. Having done this all back in January, I forgot that I had originally booked a different cruise, then switched to the Brilliance. My brain stored that little tidbit in a whole different file, lol. I am very happy she helped me remember before I made an ass out of myself with my TA. You guys might could use the giggle at my expense though.
  3. Thanks for clarifying @Ampurp85 ! It all makes more sense now seeing as how your experience has been that you've never been charged the change fee to move up a cabin category. It didn't sound right to me that at over a year out that they would charge us an extra $200 to free up a balcony and pay more for a JS. Like I said, I totally get the ship/dates/itinerary change charge, you make great points there. But, when we made the move to the new ship, that original 'cabin only' upgrade change fee moved to the new reservation so now I am paying $400 more for this cruise instead of just $200 and the original cruise has been cancelled. Had I waited a week, my cruise would be $400 less! I wonder if others have been charged to upgrade their room on the same ship for the same dates/itinerary like I was. I'm gonna go dig around in the rules on the website and see what I can find, maybe something changed? I use a TA and he didn't question it but maybe his info was wrong?
  4. Did they still charge you the $100pp change fee?
  5. I see what you're saying but if they were to down grade after the upgrade, they would have to pay a change fee for that too, right? Or maybe I misunderstood, I am really easy to confuse. I just don't think of things in the "how can I beat the system" sense so I vent, but in the back of my head figure there must be a reason for it somehow. We were on the Brilliance and we upgraded from balcony to JS and they charged us the fee. Then, just before they cancelled the Brilliance itinerary (like a week before) we switched to Odyssey and were charged another change fee. So, I get charging us for the ship hop, but I didn't think charging us for the Brilliance balcony to JS was very fair. Don't get me wrong, we knew the rules and we'll pay it, but it doesn't mean we have to like it or let it happen again. We have certainly learned our lesson. lol
  6. I second the other folks. Before I got my passport, I would just bring a copy of our marriage license to show with my birth certificate.
  7. I am team Quantum for now, but we are taking Mariner to Bermuda in a couple weeks so that could change. We are still in the beginnings of our exploration and have Grandeur and Anthem checked off the list so far. I hear so many great things about Mariner...the next 17 days are going to be rough! We have Odyssey slated for next June and I hope to add a few shorter getaways in between so I may have a more informed opinion in next years poll. lol
  8. I am also OK with the NRD and like most others, we always buy trip coverage in case worse comes to worse but the fee I'm not ok is the change fee. Especially if the change you make is an upgrade in their favor and made at over 300 days out. I just can't wrap my head around why they think its a good idea to penalize and as such deter customers for wanting to spend more money.
  9. I checked our check in today to see if our vaccine card was accepted and they were! I wonder when Bermuda will let us know our authorization was approved. I am pretty sure I read somewhere that we no longer have to upload our test results to the Bermuda website. I may be a little too excited, a little too early! lol
  10. That is almost exactly the one I saw that prompted this inquiry except yours is even cheaper than the one I found. lol Thanks for sharing Neesa!
  11. Thanks Wordell1. The same thing occurred to me but thought I'd ask since this float was so cool and super compact. lol In the end I am sure I will either forget about it or it would lose a priority war with more important stuff as I pack.
  12. Hi! I was online window shopping and came across a really cool compact inflatable float/lounge on sale. I don't recall seeing anything about this as I was doing my research. Can we bring our own floats to CocoCay with us? Thanks! ~T
