    L454S got a reaction from Va4fam in Booking Next Cruise ... On Board or with TA??   
    Once you book with the TA, the only way you can get the "Booking Onboard Deal" would be to cancel and rebook while onboard your next sailing. If you book a nonrefundable with T/A, that will cost you. Even if you book a refundable with the T/A, you will have to cancel and rebook at the current rate while onboard.
    It works well when you book onboard(especially the longer sailings) and then transfer the booking to get your T/A OBC. You have 60 days after booking onboard to transfer to your T/A. If your current cruise(the one you are on) is through an agent, it will be on file with RCI, and usually is automatically transferred to your agent on file. My agent generally gives about 8% of the cruise fare(before taxes) as OBC.

    L454S got a reaction from Balsam in opinion of My Time Dining.   
    We tend to use MTD like a personal fixed seating. Make our online reservations in MTD for the same time every day. After boarding we go to the dining room and pick out a nice table for 2 that we like and ask the hostess for that table. If we like it on the first night( service, etc.), we just ask the hostess to make it the same for the cruise.
    This may be harder to do for seatings about 7PM. Generally, a lot of the early diners are still there, so a lot of the tables are occupied. I find a little flexibility helps. 
    This works well for early seatings, not sure about later(8PM on)

    Cafe Promenade is a good place for early risers to sit and read, get some coffee. Lots of seating and well lit, port side on deck 5.

    Agree with Matt, we would like to see a permanent RCI presence here in NO. History does not favor this however.

    L454S got a reaction from Neesa in Does Royal Caribbean Waitlist?   
    We wanted a particular cabin a couple years ago on the Jewel T/A. One member on our roll call had booked it however.
    This member was waffling on canceling his sailing, so we called and were put on "waitlist" for this cabin. We were told that we would be first to get this cabin if it was cancelled. This person DID cancel so we called RCI and were told it was booked. When we questioned this with a manager, we were told they had made an error and saw our waitlist hold still there and it was overlooked.
    Just a heads up, give it a try with a grain of salt.

    L454S got a reaction from raahc in Coffee in your cabin   
    Agree with above. There are 2 sizes of carafes. A large carafe is what we order. Just write it on the order card...A LARGE CARAFE of coffee. Sometimes they send 2 small carafes. We like half and half with coffee, so we write "a small glass of Half & Half" on the card and it works well. Be specific.
    If that does not work, get a small carton of milk from the WJ and stick it in the ice bucket overnight, or if the fridge is working put it in there. You can even get a small milk in the evening in the WJ, just ask.

    You can have room service deliver a carafe of coffee with cups, etc. any time for free. We fill out the door card and set it out in the evening for coffee service for 2 to be delivered at a certain time. You can also just call room service and ask for it , but sometimes it might take a few minutes depending on how busy they are.

    L454S got a reaction from Baked Alaska in Cell phone WiFi calling and texting?   
    Orange Crush is correct, we do this on EVERY cruise. Phone is always in airplane mode onboard the ship. Only time we take the phone off airplane mode is in a US port, USVI, San Juan, where AT&T is accessible. 
    The caveat we found was .....on an iPhone, you have to select and set up wifi calling BEFORE putting into airplane mode. We leave WIFI calling on ALL the time, home or away. We tried showing some fellow cruisers how to do this several times, problem is if they switch off airplane mode to enable wifi , phone will incur large charges out in mid Atlantic ocean.
    We found other carriers had wifi calling also. I don't doubt there are those carriers who don't support wifi calling.
