  1. Einstein defines insanity as "doing the same thing many times expecting a different outcome". RCCL forces us to be insane in this instance.
  2. These are the outlets on Vision from Feb 2017. The first one is below the dressing table. The last one was under the bed. Both US and 220v European are provided.
  3. I am american. I live in Scotland (North Ayrshire). I have been here for 18 years. I sailed out of Harwich a couple years ago and found the British population onboard the ship very overwhelming. I sucked it up because, after all, I am in their country. I would never put down and call names to the people of the host nation. That is just bad diplomacy. Regarding the "Welcome home all Americans" banner: it was in America, in the Nation's Capital of America. If they can't say it, then there is something wrong with the country. I am retired US Navy, and I am often appalled at the way the UK treats their service members, both active and veterans. (I know that All Americans does not mean servicemen and women, but just go with me on this). Open your mind and see how other countries act and see if it can be used in your own country. Maybe if everyone did that, it would be a better world. Remember, it is an American company, sailing from America. It is going to cater towards the majority of their guests from that location, Americans. I've heard that cruises from Galveston are heavy on the Country music. They're Texans after all.
  4. From Cruise118's Ts&Cs: "£1 deposit is limited to first 1,000 bookings only. Remaining deposit is required if you do cancel your cruise, the remaining balance will be taken on the 29th June 2018." "Customer must sign up to a Direct Debit payment schedule in order to qualify for £1 deposit." They have your bank details so they can get that £300pp.
  5. I had watched the price of my cruise on the Symphony daily since I booked. I saw the price for the same balcony stateroom jump or drop by as much as 32% in one day. 23/01/2018 £1,190.00 24/01/2018 £949.00 -25.40% 25/01/2018 £1,189.00 20.19% 26/01/2018 £1,239.00 4.04% 29/01/2018 £949.00 -30.56% 30/01/2018 £999.00 5.01% 31/01/2018 £1,189.00 15.98% 01/02/2018 £949.00 -25.29% The price varies on a daily basis so the only comparison that can be made is at the same time on the same day. (all the tracking was of no use to me though, as re-pricing isn't allowed in the UK.)
  6. I just came off Symphony on Saturday. I still have a hold on my credit card of £333. The charges for the on-board account have been charged and the additional £333 is tied up until the bank releases it. Can your debit card support such an issue? If it can, then use the debit card if your want.
  7. C6DF6 is the right number. C6FD6 seems to be the wrong one.
  8. I just got off Symphony of the Seas last week. What a lovely ship. I was looking over my balcony one day and noticed the numbering of the life boats below. Life boat #2 has a number C6DF6, Lifeboat #4 has C6FD6, and Lifeboat #6 goes back to C6DF6. (in case you missed it, it is the reversal of DF/FD in the numbers) Is this just the OCD in me? I wonder if even the captain has noticed this discrepancy. What do you think?
  9. The cantilevered hot tubs on Oasis aren't in the Solarium. They are just outside the doors to the Solarium so anyone can use them.
  10. Sailor_to_Cruiser will be on Symphony of the Seas original inaugural cruise, April 21-28 from Barcelona. Coffee Strolls each morning at around 7am ship time (EST +6) and other scopes as I feel.
  11. Didn't RC recently recruit a team of people to sit in their corporate headquarters and test their website development? Did they not get any takers, or did these people not know what they were doing, or did RC just not listen to them? Seems this should have been fully tested before they flipped the switch. They at least made it LOOK like they were trying to do the right thing.
  12. Can someone please verify that the MyVegas rewards can be used in the UK as well? I have been racking up points (260k so far) in preparation for my next booking but have this fear that the UK market will be left out of this promo like so many others by RCCL.
  13. Yes, it amounts to about £24. Odd that they quote 2 different currencies in one photo. I hadn't noticed that one. I guess I should stop complaining about it all now. After all, I'm still going on a cruise. Right? Enjoy your cruises.
  14. This one is what my cruise planner is showing: Different prices for different people. My sailing is 21 April on Symphony. Is that yours as well?
