  1. We are cruising Alaska in June 2021. The Air2Sea website just published airfare rates for our travel but I didn't see or find an option to reserve as refundable. I thought I read you could do this but couldn't find the details, I appreciate your help as this will be our 1st time using this method. Thx in advance!!
  2. I've had very good luck asking taxi driver to stop at liquor store before dropping us off at the pier. I give him a small tip and works like a charm.
  3. Looking forward to boarding the Glory out of NOLA on 18 Oct.
  4. We have a 7 day booked for 18 Oct out of NOLA. Flying out of STL so air and hotel are booked. Looking forward to this cruise.
  5. We too haven't had any issues bringing back a couple cans in port. Didn't try a 6 pack and agree, depends on who is at security desk. Cans were not opened when carrying on in port.
  6. DW and I pulled the trigger and bought 100 shares this morning. I think we got a great deal and I'm optimistic, over time, stock will go back up. We bought to enjoy the additional OBC on future sailings.
  7. DW and I sailed on her in a JS out of San Juan, had a great time. Sailed on her again out of Ft Lauderdale in an Inside Promenade. It too was a very good time. Not too big and not too small. We aren't into big ships with lots of bells and whistles but this seemed the right size for us to do plenty of R&R and yet be entertained. Both times had outstanding wait teams in the MDR and room stewards.
  8. We are sailing in mid-Oct and no plans to cancel.............yet. Already booked air reservations and hotel.
  9. Uncle Fester, DW and I were on this cruise too. I was hoping to meet you, perhaps we did but didn't exchange screen names. I thought your review was very good. We had a great wait staff for our MTD and thought overall the food in the MDR was good. We ended up eating breakfast in the MDR every morning which is the 1st time for us since we usually like to sleep in. This was our 1st time as Diamonds and overall really enjoyed it though I never understood why they were so strict about carrying drinks out especially since we were headed to an early dinner. It didn't make much sense since they were fairly liberal about using your seapass card to get drinks elsewhere on the ship during happy hour. I thought our Chops dinner was the worst ever and wasn't happy with the amount we spent vs quality of the food. I gave them a "0" on the RCI survey. Waiter told me they had a new chef, I would have thrown him overboard based on quality. This was our 10th sailing on RCI and I think the overall quality made it the worst for me. I can't quite put my finger on specifics but it just felt that way to me. Our next RCI sailing is on the Radiance in Alaska in 2021. Really looking forward to that one.
  10. Looking forward to see what they provide on Rhapsody in 2 weeks.
  11. Ditto! I simply tell them I don't know yet if I'll be comfortably full and prefer to wait until after the meal. I also tell them I don't want to waste any food and they seem genuinely delighted to check back with me.
  12. Thank you to all, this was very helpful.
  13. Sorry, should have been more specific, lattes, cafe mocha?
  14. DW and I will be Diamond on Rhapsody of the Seas. What kind of specialty coffees do they serve in the lounge for breakfast?
  15. DW and I really enjoyed our cruise on Grandeur out of Baltimore to the Bahamas last year. Smaller ship but we don't care for ships with all the bells and whistles and thoroughly enjoyed the ship and crew. Service was great all over the ship.
