  1. Ok I better understand your question.. Yes Thanksgiving is a very popular week for Oasis class ships. However, I have found that after final payment they drop the price. I have found that out of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years that Thanksgiving is the most reasonably priced.. I think this is because not all kids have off from school the entire week some kids only have off Wed, Thurs, Fri, and some only Thurs and Fri.. But the boats always sell out eventually. I personally go on a Thanksgiving cruise every year.. This year I am on the newly amped Oasis but I got a really good deal..
  2. As others have mentioned Odyssey is a Quantum Ultra Class not an Oasis class.. But the other reason the price is high is Next year is the first year the ship comes out.. Whenever Royal has a brand new ship come out it is always priced the highest.. Take a look at Oasis you might be able to find a better deal..
  3. Chops Grill, Jamie's Italian, Izumi, and playmakers all cost extra to eat there.
  4. Yes.. Now Make sure you print this whole message and take it with you! I know its crazy to have to do so but there seems to be such a struggle between corporate and what is done on the ships.. I have heard it has been a fight based on what the Hotel Director of each ship wants.. To me that's CRAZY!! The hotel directors should Have to do what Corporate tells them to do..
  5. good idea.. Twitter and facebook messaging seems to be what works. Its quite annoying that we have to fight for what is supposed to be included.. I had this issue on Navigator back in June with playmakers.. I had printed documentation and it got sorted out. Hopefully it will work out for you.. I also have the UDP for our Oasis sailing.. (I'm on with you) im hoping Portside will get $35 worth of food as some people have been reporting it is only getting $20..
  6. if I were you I would send Royal Caribbean facebook team a message and let them know what the email from your concierge says.. They will write you back saying the concierge is wrong and that way you have something in writing from Royal Caribbean corporate so you can make your case.. They always back down when people bring in printed documentation.. Its crazy we have to fight for these things but that's the way it is..
  7. Matt, I hope to see you on board the 24th sailing.. It would be great to catch up..
  8. Hibachi is Absolutely included with the Unlimited package... However each ship has handled it differently.. Some ships let you order the 2 protein option and others let you order the 1 protein option but hibachi is included with Unlimited package only
  9. NO!!! I NEVER do that. That Drives me CRAZY when anyone splits 10's.. I get up and leave the table when someone does that!!
  10. hmm yeah.. They might of sold their quota for your sailing.. That happened to me with Symphony last year..
  11. Its possible they sold their quota for your sailing.. Just curious.. When in December? Is it over the holidays? If so that might be the reason.. I have a 3 night Navigator on Dec 13 and its still possible to buy..
  12. Thats weird.. I have 3 weekend sailings on Navigator coming up and it lets me buy the package for all of them and shows up in the planner.. Was the fb page the Royal page? Or run by a fan?
  13. I would book the week they are released best chance of getting the lowest price.. Then I would price watch like a hawk to see if the pricing goes down at all.. I would totally get 2 rooms. You guys are all adults essentially and just having 2 bathrooms vs 1 bathroom makes all the difference.. Plus the people who would have to sleep on the sleeper couch will be so uncomfortable.. Sure the sofa is fine for kids but in my opinion its horrible for adults its just really not comfortable.. Also because Royal has a limited number of cabins that fit 5 and 6 people they jack the prices up and its often better to book 2-3 cabins rather than 1 cabin..
  14. This is true lol.. But in all seriousness I really do win sometimes.. I play blackjack which is part strategy and part luck... When both are on my side I have come out a winner and walked a way with a few thousand..
  15. Mathematically you do have to win sometimes.. lol.
  16. Hey Everyone, There is no exact science or date to when the shows show up.. Sometimes they show up 6 months in advance, sometimes 90 days, sometimes 60, sometimes 50.. You just really don't know.. You have to just check everyday but it will eventually come so literally just do a quick check everyday..
  17. According to the menu $20 works fine.. You can get the 3 meat option with 2 sides and dessert and still get some wings if you want.. I can't eat more than that anyway..
  18. Was this a slot winning? Every time I win money on Blackjack I Never have to fill out a tax form.. The only time I did was for a slot win..
  19. But based on the pricing of the menu.. It looks like $35 will be plenty! I am very excited to Try this!!
  20. This is great news!! Bring on Nov 24th!! Cant wait to go on the new Amped Oasis!
  21. I saw it on cruise critic.. Where exactly on facebook did you see she is leaving today? This is good news I am just curious where I can find it.
  22. actually I live in ft. Lauderdale.. They changed the tax in broward county to 7% back in January.. Is it possible the receipt you saw was for someone who Didn't have a drink package and was just buying a drink? If so that's the reason for the Tax... The OP was referring to if you have a drink package.. If not then I don't know why they charged tax..
  23. would the other cruise line you are referring to happen to be NCL? if so what they do is ridiculous and I don't know how they get away with it.. There is no law that says they have to charge tax.. Not only that the sales tax in Miami doesn't even match what they charge.. They basically just wanted a way to get extra money out of people. Its quite annoying.. If your not talking about NCL sorry for the rant lol... But I have been on 45 Royal cruises and they never do this so don't worry about it..
  24. Also, I know your frustrated because you thought you had a great deal.. BUT on some level you should of known this deal was too good to be true.. That week that you picked is thanksgiving in the US.. I realize your not from America so maybe you didn't realize but holidays always cost a premium so there is no way they would only charge you what they first quoted.. I know that doesn't make you feel better and your still frustrated but I am not sure what else to say.
  25. That is exactly right.. Its very frustrating for me. I am a small agent who cant compete with big guys like vacations to go or cruises.com.. They buy up blocks of cabins when itineraries are first released and that's how they give people deals.. Now I have a host agency that buys some but they don't buy it for every sailing so its a crap shoot on whether I can actually save people money.. What I can do is offer really good customer service and OBC.. But plenty of times I lose out to big guys. Im not mad about it. its business and I understand but yes you now know how the big guys get deals lol.
