Star Struck...Star Class on Allure 1/12/20

Recommended Posts

@MamaShark the RLS decor seems very different in the YouTube videos from Harmony to Allure. So I am excited as well to be able to compare them. I will take a lot of photos.

We still haven’t heard back if they will have the Crown Peach brought onboard but if we are lucky enough they do, I know my dad and FIL will be so happy. Luciano emailed us yesterday with the standard port arrival information. Counting down the hours at this point 😂

Agree.  Not just the RLS but all cabin decor in general.  I personally prefer the decor of HM and SY over OA and AL.  That's why I was disappointed to see that they did not redo them when the amped Oasis.

Whew finally all packed! I did pretty good, only two suitcases and two carry on’s. Lexi’s suitcase is about the size of ours and it’s just her stuff 🤣 she is definitely the best dressed! We fly out tomorrow around lunch time. We plan to get to the hotel then order food and watch the playoff games. Trying desperately to keep myself busy so time will pass, I cannot wait to get onboard! Still no update on the special liquor request btw.

@Rags1 you guys are going to have so much fun on Oasis. We are supposed to go in May.  We want to go check out all the new stuff. The genie group for Oasis looks great. 

I’m keeping my fingers crossed they keep the good ones. We’re in the AQ2BR in November.

 Hopefully they will, I can’t remember how long most contracts are maybe 8-9 months?

 

We are flying out now from CLT this weather is yucky!

Nope.  Way shorter.  Genie contracts are typically 5 months and sometimes they get extended to 6 moths.  Only under extenuating circumstances do they go past that.  

Our weather here is not much better today.  I am even more jealous now!!

Safe travels!

Thank you soo good to know. Then do they get like 2 months home? I find their jobs so fascinating. 

 

We are here and it’s a lot better  weather here! Update on the bottle request, they can get it onboard but it would be a $220 cost to us soo that was a pass.

Delighted to hear that you made it !  Good luck getting any sleep tonite.

Your experience with the liquor in the cabin is the same as our friends experienced a few years ago - after many denials, they finally agreed, but at an outrageous price.  I find it an interesting policy since you can drink anything on the ship in as great a quantity as you desire, but they refuse to allow a bottle of liquor in your suite.  Perhaps they fear that people will request many bottles of liquor and it will go to waste...

Yes, typically it’s about 5 months on, 2 off. Some who get extended will negotiate a longer time off.

When I get time I love to ask the genies about their life on ship.  I think it’s so neat. We will probably not sleep much tonight.... too excited

I just don’t understand the extremely high price I could see double or maybe even triple but $220 for a $30 bottle worst case is just crazy and we couldn’t even keep it in our room. So no crown peach this week, but that is okay! We plan to head over around 10am. Im going to try to sleep, because I know I’ll be going everywhere tomorrow but I’m just so excited! I feel like a kid again. 😁

Thank you all!

 

So we met Luciano! He is super nice and helpful. He took us straight to our room. Lexi had to be the first on and she couldn’t wait to hang out with him. 

Big difference we noticed between the RLS on Harmony and Allure.... the carpet downstairs. However the room is so nice and clean. 
 

 

I will post photos of my in laws owners Pan in just a bit. 
 

lexi is already in the hot tub playing and we are waiting on lunch.

Random question....actual books on the bookshelf by the piano?

Yes they are!!!! And it’s a huge selection! 
 

We had a huge spread sent for lunch, we had Sabor chips and guac/ salsa, burgers, fries, onion rings and part of the seafood tower brought to the room. That was really nice. We  finished  the muster then we hit the champagne bar for some martinis now we are on the deck waiting for sail away!
