  1. I think the reason Royal does it that way is because of restricted access to the Suites lounge. If your sea pass card opened the door there would be nothing to stop you from going into the Suites lounge, which would exacerbate overcrowding during the early evening.
  2. I have never removed tips, and never will. I cannot see or understand messing with a person’s livelihood because I perceive less than exemplary service. In my opinion tips are part of the cost of cruising and should be accepted as such. It is much more effective to make your feelings known on your survey. That way the crew member will either receive counseling, not be offered another contract or fired outright. Such a large percentage of the crew perform over and above expectations that I feel it’s fair to overlook someone having a bad day. Think about your own career and how you may have underperformed due to illness or personal problems. Would it be fair for your boss to dock your pay for that week?
  3. Yes. Elite, Elite Plus and Zenith only receive Diamond status. Diamond, Diamond Plus and Pinnacle only receive Elite.
  4. Points are not transferable between lines, They do offer status match according to your Celebrity status.
  5. On Allure now. Disembarkation delayed. Ship still full of people at 10:45.
  6. So much for another rule Royal is too gutless and greedy to enforce.
  7. Thanks. Steps would be a problem, I will be dragging a large suitcase and possibly a carryon.
  8. I wouldn’t think the LA would be the deciding official on that issue, Crown and Anchor would make that determination. Since the inception of the Crown and Anchor Society I’m sure that Royal has kept computerized records of the manifests for each sailing. Claiming cruises before then have always required pictures or some other substantive proof that you actually sailed on that cruise.
  9. Thanks, hopefully that will be the terminal where the Vision will be berthed.
  10. I will be sailing on the Vision out of New Orleans in January. Considering booking the night before the cruise in the Hilton Riverside Hotel. What is the approximate distance from the Hilton Riverside to the terminal?
  11. Just completed my online check in for the Allure 9/9/18 sailing. Shows Pinnacle club on my set sail pass, but earliest arrival time offered was 1:00 p.m. That would certainly negate Pinnacle early boarding. Plan to arrive between 11:00 and 11:30, don’t anticipate that will be a problem.
  12. Wow aren’t you the magnanimous, understanding soul. I suggest the next time you are seated at a table with or near a dog you request your meal be served in the dog’s dish and you sit on the floor to eat with the dog.
  13. Glad you enjoyed your cruise, the Oasis is a great ship. You also learned a valuable lesson about cruise critic, take what is said here with a grain of salt. It seems to be human nature to be more willing to post negative comments rather than positive. Thanks for your feedback.
