    SPS got a reaction from RWDW1204 in Who's going to be booted   
    Can we please stay a bit more on topic here? I'm truly wondering about his very topic and at least one full page worth of replies are birthday, retirement, & IRA/401k talk. (Sorry to vent, just frustrated)
    I have an Explorer cruise booked for January 29th. Given the rapidly approaching date, IF it sails, I'm sure it will be at a reduced capacity.
    I'm wondering if we will get booted since we we tend to "budget cruise" (interior cabin, re-pricing when the chance comes), even though we are VERY LOYAL C&A members that book early and A LOT of what we save on cruise fare to put toward CP items such as drinks, excursions, spa, & dining. I'm wondering if any of that will be observed and factored in on the Who's In/Who's Out list.
    The second frustration I'm having is that although a reduced capacity is almost certainly going to happen, RC is still selling cabins for this cruise of ALL types. (Interior, Virtual Balcony Interior, Promenade Interior, Ocean View, Balcony, & Suites)
    Why keep selling these when you know you'll have to cancel a large percentage? Wishful thinking on RC's part?

    YES!!!!!!
    I'm hoping @Matt is right about her staying in Baltimore.  Here's the key difference between her and Enchantment ..... The specialty restaurants.  Enchantment only has Chops, While, my beloved Lady G also has Giovanni's Table, and, my favorite, Izumi ---- which sits on the backside of the VCL ---- amazing views from there (pictured).
    In a year of shitty news, we really needed this.

    SPS got a reaction from AnnetteJackson in It really can pay to re-price your cruise!   
    UPDATE!!!
    With the current sale going on as of today (July 9th) I called again to receive another $144 off of our cruise fare.
    In just under one month, we have now saved $388! Keep checking those prices!
    FYI: I use the price alert feature on the Shipmate app to monitor prices. It sends me an email each time the price changes (up or down).

    Hello, All!
    Been a while since I've been here. Several times in the past, I've done a second "mock-booking" of my existing reservation, to see if I would come up with a lower price to no avail.
    With the current 2021 sale going on, I was able to see that booking an available cabin RIGHT NEXT TO MINE was $79 cheaper so I decided to call RCCL. (Not a bunch, but, hey, every bit helps!)
    To my surprise, not only was the basic rate $79 cheaper, but, I actually qualified for an additional discount as a resident of MICHIGAN! This has NEVER happened for me. In my experience, those discounts have usually been available for those in the home port state.
    At the end of the call, I had a $244 discount off my cruise fare!
    If not for finding this blog a few years ago, I wouldn't have known that re-pricing an existing reservation was possible.

    Those are the "cruise ships are petri dishes" people. Because of whatever reason, they are against cruising (from germs to jealousy) and don't think others should go either. I hope the opinions from those people are fully ignored.

    I fairly certain that the CDC doesn't want to hear MY opinions on anything. Whatever I would write to them would have way too much ranting and obscenities! 🤪
    On a serious note, I really hope that not too many submissions come from the "anti-cruise" crowd.
    I'm sure you know the type. The people that always NEED to comment "This is why I would never go on a cruise" whenever a negative story about a cruise pops up.

    How many people think we should buy a Monarch lifeboat for Matt to create a RCBlog studio/office/YouTube broadcast booth?
    Or, should it just be the furnishings from one of the pool bars?

    They beached the Sovereign this morning close to the Monarch in Aliaga, Turkey to begin scrapping her 😞

    Saved over $700 on my Harmony sailing last summer with a military discount.  It was after final payment so it was applied as a well used OBC.  So it pays to check even after final payment.
