@PG Cruiser Happy Birthday! But what’s with the 100? You can’t possibly be 100, or maybe you’re a bot too? 😆

I’m celebrating two birthdays on this cruise.  My grandma who passed away last year would have been 100 yesterday (November 15th).  The celebration last night was for her.  My birthday is on the 23rd which I am celebrating on the 22nd, the last night of the cruise.  It’s funny how the cruise starts on her birthday and ends on mine.

 

Speaking of bots, I was seated two tables away from the famous “bot” on this forum, but I only saw him with a few side glances.  I know it’s not good to stare at people... 😂  There were clues that it was him.  First, he was dining alone. (Hmmm... solo cruiser).  Second, his waiter said, “Oh, good to see you back” (Hmmm... frequent cruiser) Then I saw what he was browsing on his phone - THIS FORUM! (Aha!!! It’s him!!!)

Dear Mr Bot, I must have looked “stalkerish” to you huh? 😂

I’m not a big seafood fan but I will eat Conch Fritters.  Yumm. 

I prefer “Cracked Conch” over the fritters.  I found that out in Nassau where I tried it the first time. The fritters have a lot of fillers whereas the cracked one only has light breading on conch meat.

So, I had this interesting conversation with the one in charge of reservations for  dining events.  As I have mentioned in a previous post, I have chosen the Bottomless Galley Brunch as the +1 for my Chops +1 package.  For some reason, the BGB hasn’t shown on the My Calendar on the app so I asked about it.  After going to the “back office”, this guy told me that they will have to confirm whether my booking for the package has gone through. I found that weird because I had already had my dinner at Chops last night. I have a witness on this forum, right @twangster?

Anyway, after going to the “back office” again, he came back to tell me again that the reservation might not have gone through.  This time he added, “Sometimes, people think their reservation has gone through, but if their credit card didn’t have enough funds, it won’t go through.  For example, if the purchase was $100 and they only had $99, it won’t go through.”  (That’s verbatim)

In the nicest way possible, I said that I was sure I had enough funds on my card.  Actually, since I purchased the package on the ship, it should have gone to my folio, not my credit card account. To this he replied, “We are still learning how to use the app since it’s new to us.”  Shouldn’t he have started with that???

What does your account show?

More importantly, what would you like to do?  If you need some help reaching the end goal, glad to assist if I can.

My folio shows I have been charged for the package.  I guess I’m just venting.  The credit card comment irked me. I’m torn between letting management know what happened or just letting it go.

On another thread, someone asked about sweeteners available on board.  Here’s what they have on the Empress - Blue (Equal/aspartame), Pink (Sweet N Low/saccharin), Yellow (Splenda/Sucralose), White Sugar and Brown Sugar.  No Truvia (stevia)
