    RestingBird got a reaction from WAAAYTOOO in Royal Up Bid   
    Just put a "bid" in, on Mariner, about a month out.  OV balcony now, bid on a GS.  There are at least 10 left...I'll take that as a good sign we'll get one, depending on how many people ahead of us bid on them.
    8-26-19 just got off Mariner today, didn't "win" the bid.  But we were totally fine in our regular balcony cabin.

    Could you imagine if they didn't set a limit?  6,000 people trying to use the slides, etc.  There may be more available later and I'm sure Royal will sell enough that it will be way overcrowded.

    I love you all. I constantly check and double check, especially after I did something like this.
    Years ago, when my girls were little we flew into Florida to go to Disney and visit relatives. I had booked the car for the day before! Luckily, there was another car available.
    i can't even blame it on a Muscato!

    I haven't seen it in the cruise planner either for a July 12 Mariner cruise.  I am guessing we book it onboard.

    If it's available to pre-book, check your cruise compass... 
    When I look on MY cruise compass (we're sailing Navigator in July) it's listed under the tab "onboard activities" and it's called "The Observatorium".
    But it could also be sold out online.  You can always call RC and find out for sure.

    I booked a hotel for part of our honeymoon, but when we got there the nice lady at the desk told me no current booking for us.  Turns out I booked it for two months earlier 🤦.  There's money gone.  I was so mad that we left and booked a room at a different hotel.  More money gone, lol.  And my original was a wine free booking!  Looking back I wish I would've been drinking some wine so I could pass the blame.

    RestingBird reacted to CGTLH in CocoCay - Quick tour of Skipper's Grill   
    Thought it would be a good idea to post a quick photo look around of the offerings a Skipper's Grill on CocoCay. I'm going to assume that Chill Grill would have the same offerings.
    Per signage, the hours of operation are 11:30 to 3:00 

    Starting off it was nice seeing the beverage station outside of the buffet area. This area also has a soft serve machine.
    Getting a closer look at the beverage island area.

    Better view of the drink dispensers

    I'm not sure if the beer by the ounce dispenser is covered by the beverage package or not. Also want to say a hand washing station was on the other side of the dispensers.
    Fruit carving just so you know where you were.

    Skipper's Grill was divided up into multiple sections.
    Once for cold salads and pre-made sandwiches.


    Some sandwiches being made.
     
    Grill stations with the classic hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken, corn, and not shown fries.

    Next up was a taco/mexican station, here they had chicken, beef, pulled pork, rice, and beans. (Need to double check if I have any pictures)
    One highlight was the freshly made flour
    Finally two different topping stations. One geared towards burger fixings and the other for taco fixings.

     
     
    Finally a photo just for drool factor. This plate was a cuban sandwich (made with a soft sweet style bread), rice and beans plus some of the pulled pork.

     
    Also forgot to mention there is a small bar counter within the Skipper's Grill area. Don't recall if they did blended drinks but they did carry plenty of beers and spirits.
    Only major complaint I had was food temperature, nothing seemed really that hot. Most of what I tried was almost warm, some stuff was hot but for the most part it wasn't consistent. I might mark that as being there probably when they first opened around 11:30. Overall they weren't that busy at the time.

    RestingBird reacted to RTripp in Coco Cay Over Water Cabanas   
    I considered over the water cabanas. From when I booked, to my cruise (6/19 with Harmony) , I got sick & am/might be wheelchair bound & this would have been the only “excursion” I felt comfortable going on. But OTW cabanas will not be ready yet, so booked the Chill Island  Cabana. Want to mention that I found an **“issue” on the number of guests allowed, and have worked with RC Resolution Team and also with RC Corporate for 2 months. Resolution was not found & the excursion highlights to completing payment are still contradicting. I am mentioning this, if anyone is considering making the full payment & have friends chip in. Specifically 1)the excursion “highlights” state “room for up to 8 of your favorite people” which I took as myself plus 8=nine total. 2) the excursion “important notes” state “maximum eight guests per cabana” . 3) when you pay/complete this excursion it states “choose SIX people” . 3)RC Resolution team member Eva got back to me and stated it is “six adults and two children” will be authorized to use /be with me. We are traveling with 20 and it was difficult to pick& choose the 6/7 or 8 “ favorites”. Dissapointed that RC only offered a$25 credit for me finding the error. Hopefully other friends can stop in, but not stay. This is my first post, let me know if I should post my finding somewhere for others?

    That would be correct...although in my defense I have never cruised without it and this only happened once......so far
     
    Damn solo cabins on Brilliance......those doors close quickly behind you when you step out to look down the hall..lol
     
    Only good thing was that those rooms are about  pretty close to Guest services(deck 4)..but nothing like walking through the centrum in your boxer briefs at 2am......

    There could be one slight problem if you are not a Prime member.  For anyone that is not at least a Prime level member of Club Royale, they would charge you a 5% "convenience fee" to take cash against your sea pass card.  So if you  had to pay that fee it would  not be reasonable.  This "scheme" only works if you are already a Prime or higher CR member.  I should have mentioned that but I know that Stephanie does qualify for waiving that fee.

    I don't gamble...but I totally just took a screenshot of this reply...never know when it'll come in handy.  Thanks!
    P.S.  I mean all that in a good way, it's good advice.

    I redeemed points from Royal Caribbean Credit Card about three months before our Radiance cruise in May.  I called RCCL and asked if they received the OBC and she checked and yes they did and it would show up on the cruise planner about two weeks before sail date.  It did show up at the top of the home page for Cruise Planner and could have been used.
    There are two types of OBC, refundable and non-refundable.
    The RCCL credit card OBC is refundable. Our kids surprised us with  a $100 OBC to buy us dinner,  they are all put on your on board account, at the end of the cruise any unused OBC that is refundable is put back on the credit card you have on your  account.
    The OBC that you get from RCCL (when you book your cruise) is non- refundable so if you do not use that up you lose it.  I know that would be impossible but I thought I would share it.

    For me it is a legitimate fear.  I once tried to check into a hotel, only to discover that i had booked the room for the following week.  Luckily, they had plenty of availability.
     
    Thanks for all of the advice and kind thoughts.

    Don't feel bad.  I did the same thing not long ago.  It happens !  Unfortunately (for poor Michelle !) the TA took the brunt of the pain for my mistake.  Not only did I have HER book the wrong cruise, I had HER call back, cancel the wrong one and rebook the right one.  I know she secretly hates my guts but she never, ever shows it !

    I actually just called and cancelled.  It was very easy and took less than 5 minutes!  That will teach me to book after a glass of wine!

    On second thought, I'd call the travel agent and let them know what happened and then transfer the wrong booking to them and let them deal with cancel and booking again. That frees you up to spend more time on these boards!

    Years ago we changed door handles and locks on the house.  Most handles unlock when you open the door but this one would open and leave the lock in place.  Walked out in the backyard one early morning in my underwear to let the dog out.  Shut the door and bam, no phone or anything.  Nobody else was home.  Had to walk to the neighbors and call my wife to let me back in the house.  Changed the lock that afternoon!  🤣🤣🤣🤣
