  1. The operative word here is should......and you are not considering hold ups by customs, weather delay, i.e. fog, and other ship related issues. I was told CCL Legend would be docking at 630AM. We got off the ship at 2PM. There was nothing that CCL could do about it. I just felt sorry for the folks standing in blocks long line outside to embark.
  2. Buyers remorse can be brutal....BUT, I can't begin to imagine the problems created if EVERYONE decided to make changes at the last minute. The paperwork would be insurmountable. The rules and regulations have been put in place to help all passengers with RCI.
  3. Just like Tea.....I bring my own Constant Comment.
  4. Excuses....excuses. There are offices and staff EVERYWHERE and you could have handed it to them and revealed your cabin number.
  5. We have booked Cuba for 01/20/20 and are considering if we need to purchase travel insurance from an outside vendor. Arch RomeRight & CF Travel Insured. Any thoughts?
  6. My preferred seating at any venue is first row balcony. You get to see better including everything that is going on in the depth of the stage.
  7. Moral of the story....purchase gift cards directly from RCI. Going thru all the hoops to save 10 bucks doesn't seem worth the time, trouble and aggravation.
  8. Poor people will continue to do what makes them poor....wealthy people will continue to do what makes them wealthy.
  9. Room service is complimentary for continental breakfast including coffee. RCI introduced the $7.95 fee to cut costs on late night food orders by passengers that ultimately leave uneaten and food is wasted.
  10. I use Chrome and Foxfire and neither have failed for me. Using Win10.
  11. I WAS turned away from the MDR for wearing flip flops...which to me are no different than open toe sandles that many women wear. Now I always wear black house shoes for comfort. I believe the "rules" are not applied company wide...just what mood the Maitre D is in for a sitting.
  12. If you go to the Windjammer. you are going to get your tray there. No need to squirrel one away in your cabin. When you finish, call your Cabin Steward....they will be more than happy to pick your tray up rather than leaving the "leftovers' in the corridor for someone to trip over.
  13. We enjoy both Chops and Giovanni, and usually reserve Chops for our last evening's enjoyment and entertainment.
  14. If you are on a private venue or in the middle of the ocean, the captain is not going to turn the ship around and take you to the nearest port. Your mother raised you I'm sure she can take care of a 12 year old grandson. Sent from my SM-G920V using Forums mobile app
  15. Would you wear pajamas to McDonald’s or Burger King or Cracker Barrel?
  16. Yes you are very lucky you didn't get to spend the rest of your cruise in the brig. Ships Have Padded Cells for Problem Passengers. They're often a courteous and helpful bunch, but they also have the power to confine you to quarters, lock you up, and, in some circumstances, escort you off the ship to sit in a foreign jail
  17. I am a tea snob so I take my own tea and they bring me hot water.
  18. Perfect is very difficult/impossible to achieve....relax...enjoy your vacation and embrace your friends.
  19. It will be posted on the back of your cabin door. Don't worry...they will make sure you attend.
  20. I would be more concerned about a fellow passenger stealing from you than a crew member. The staff value their sacred position/ job and would never want to be the center of being accused of theft. Their entire career, earning capabilities and their family at home depend on this most valuable possession of a job. Every cruise line is adamant concerning honesty with the staff.
  21. We are cruising Rhapsody of the Seas, December 22, 2018. I thought that I should probably make my reservations for Chops and Giovanni's. Went to the Cruise Planner and proceeded to find that All of the Speciality Dining Dec, 24-25 are booked solid and there are NO spots open. I did get to book Giovanni for Wednesday, 26th and Chops for Friday, 28th. Maybe we might have a cancellation but it doesn't look too promising at this point. If you haven't made your reservations yet...better hit it soon and hope you can find open spots for reservations.
  22. Shop at your local trusted jeweler. Find someone that you can trust face to face to be making any kind of purchase. The hassle of dealing with a problem 2000 miles away is not what you want or need.
