    RBRSKI got a reaction from Sweety in Oasis Dream Come True (almost a Reality)   
    So I am currently booked for the March 8th sailing on the Oasis with my son who will be on Spring Break.  I am also booked for the March 22nd sailing with my wife and daughter because her break is during that time frame.  My goal is to sail on the March 15th cruise which would make it a B2B2B!   I have a couple feelers out to some friends who have shown some interest.  God I hope it Happens!   😊  Cross Your Fingers for Me!!!!

    I think my best bet will be to watch it on a daily basis and hope for the best.  I am waiting for a couple of people to get back to me, as they might want to join me!!!

    I would have no words at this point for anyone who continues to defend this grandfather and the parents. The parents should just do the right thing at this point and have their civil suit dismissed. 
    I keep saying this is a terrible accident, but at some point, the grandpa has to be held accountable. I’m in my 30s and even I can’t stand how personal responsibility is a dying concept in today’s society. Always blame someone else. Always go for the lawsuit and the money. As if that will bring your baby back.

    RBRSKI reacted to twangster in Diamond Event on Majesty   
    In the early 70s there were a couple ships that had ~600 guests each.  At the time wine was offered with dinner complimentary.
    Today there are 85,000 guests eating dinner tonight on Royal ships.  Same tomorrow night and the night after.  Complimentary wine for 85,000 at dinner doesn't scale.  
    Somewhere between 1,200 guests and 85,000 guests they had to make the tough call to eliminate complimentary wine at dinner.  It just doesn't scale.
    Last week on Anthem the LA did something unusual at the top tier.  Not only did he announce the number of members in each CAS level on board, he also told us 85 will be graduating to Diamond at the end of the cruise.  That's one ship out of 26.
    Let's say the conservative average is 5 graduating to Diamond every week on every ship.  5 x 26 x 52 weeks = 6,760 new Diamond this year.  That many last year, that many the year before.  
    The Diamond ranks are swelling and they can't sustain everything the way it was in the past.  
    Just like the complimentary dinner wine had to change, so will CAS benefits have to change.  
    Royal is adding >10,000 guests with new ships by the end of 2022.  By that time there will be 20,000 new Diamond members.  
    Somethings have to change, CAS doesn't scale as it's offered today.

    How about the parents that have gone on national TV blaming RCCL?  They should be ashamed of them-self! It was terrible that she lost her life, and the step grandfather will live with it for the rest of his life.  The parents should have moved on ( which I am sure will be a hard thing to do) and look to other things that might help them find peace.

    I think I would have more respect and feelings for him (and the family) if they would have admitted his guilt and negligence.  
    The whole "not me, it must be someone else's fault" approach in the face of clear and damning evidence has influenced my view of his situation and not in a good way for him (or the family).

    While police and law enforcement officers around the country fight the battle to earn the respect they deserve, I've lost all respect for the South Bend Indiana Police Department for continuing to support Alan Wiegand given that he and his wife (a prosecutor herself) continue to sue Royal Caribbean when the video footage clearly shows the step-grandfather leaning his upper torso OUT the open window and then holding the child OUT the window for 34 seconds before dropping her!  How can anyone in South Bend, Indiana rely on the police or Alan Wiegand to properly determine if a crime has been committed and how can a court of law rely on their judgement and testimony when they have clearly demonstrated that their judgement is impaired and seriously flawed!

    While I was on the Navigator for thanksgiving, I stood in the same area that the grandfather stood with his granddaughter, now I am 6'1, with my two feet firmly on the ground with my lower chest against the teak railing I looked over the window frame to the outside.  I felt uncomfortable, I wouldn't  put a bag, drink or anything (especially a young child) on that part of the ship. Very poor poor decision on the grandfathers part.  And shame on the family to use RCCL as the scape goat!  And of course this is my opinion.

    The cruise line would never release the name of the person in the room you want so that is a no-go.  I have read many times of people asking the cruise line to intercede on their behalf and never have I heard of it happening.  The TA will have no ability to help you, either.
    Unfortunately, there is little to do in this situation.  I completely understand your desire to keep the same room for your B2B but I would not hold hope that you can make this happen.  The only possible thing that I could think of to do would be that MAYBE if you join the roll call for this sailing and ask to see if MAYBE the person in your room happens to be on the roll call that MAYBE you could get in touch with them directly that way.  Other than that, I can't think of a thing to suggest.
