  1. Will be happy that I can now fly 5 hours for cruises out of California. Now I can do a land vacation and then add b2b or b3b cruise. Not limited to cruising out of Galvestone if we did not want to fly all the way to Florida.
  2. Last I saw Nadja, she was on Liberty out of Galvestone in October 2019. She left the ship I think the next cruise after our cruises. She is really one of the great concierges that royal has. It was a very nice 14 days with her.
  3. Breakfast was served every morning in Chops for Suite and Pinnacle guests on Liberty. Lunch is now just a room that you can bring your plate from windjammer to eat in.
  4. When we were on Liberty last Oct/Nov, I saw just a few wearing shorts in DL. Many more shorts in the SL even though there was less people. Felt sorry for the D concierge. He stood outside the door to lounge checking seapass cards the first couple nights of each weeks sailing. It was standing room only even after early dining time when it usually clears.
  5. Even in communism, the ruling party is more equal than others. Every socialist and communist nation in the world!, the ruling party is more equal than the plebes Leadership gets better everything compared to the commoners. Though their philosophy tends to say there is no class divide and everyone is equal. Sent from my SM-T377P using Tapatalk
  6. Still can not believe the society we live in nowadays. The mantra is "never my fault. Someone else should have prevented this from happening." What ever happened to accepting responsibility for your actions? In this new society, it is always blame someone else besides yourself. Tell grandpa to look in the mirror first before playing the "victim". Only victim was the innocent child. Sent from my SM-T377P using Tapatalk
  7. I am with the Dec 2020 start date. We have a month on Vision and hope to board her on Jan 4 2021. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  8. Just 3 this year. If vision doesnt sail in Jan, then add another 4. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  9. I got my refund for 2 sailings in June about a month ago. Cancelled it 90 days in advance and got it about a week or two after the 90 days. Am happy that I got it. But we also used a travel agent. Waiting for june/july YC itineraries to become available to book with MSC again. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  10. Last oct/Nov we were on Liberty and the cigar lounge was still there. Also vintages on the promenade was still there but barely anyone in it. Sent from my SM-T377P using Tapatalk
  11. Wow so sorry to hear about your refund. We were scheduled to be on Seaside also for B2B in June. Cruises were cancelled in April by MSC and got our refund about a month ago. I did use a travel agent. Hope you get your refund soon. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  12. Luckily we got to do our Brilliance cruise this past Jan. Our summer and fall Oct cruises have been cancelled. Looks like our cruises in Jan 2021 on Vision is not looking good. Definitely miss cruising and the people we meet onboard tremendously. Plus the stay at home order on Oahu is giving me cabin fever. This has been the longest drought on cruising since we did our first cruise 6 years ago. We have done a cruise every 3 or 4 months since we started. Praying that cruising returns soon.

  13. Have been using this big discount store headquartered in Kirkland Washington from our first cruise. You get a shopping card when the cruise is over for about 8% of your cruise fare. To bad they went away from giving you OBC about 2-3 years ago. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  14. I agree in not changing anything. You get a free cruise in a star class cabin...what is there not to like? Sent from my SM-T377P using Tapatalk
  15. It is pretty quiet most of the day and night since you aren't right over the walkway and far enough away from mini golf. But the best is when the zip line is running you can people watch. And sometimes hear the screams of fear or joy! Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  16. My vote is for the aft facing CLS. When sailing Oasis class, we have to get that beautiful cabin. We have had the direct middle cabin and you can see the aqua theatre shows at a distance. We like that cabin but think I prefer the cabin directly above the landing for the zip line. Agree with other poster in that I will not get CLS on the port side. The basketball court is used to late at night and they play all types of games on there. Just can't relax on that balcony with the sound of the ball bouncing and people yelling.

  17. The deck 17 suite stewards stay in that position when moving ships. Met a very nice gentleman that was our steward in a CLS on Oasis. Then about a year later, he was our steward on Allure. I commented on what are the chances that we would have him again as our steward. He said that once they get promoted to suite steward they stay there. It is a promotion and more money for them.

  18. How are you two doing? We are fine and still travelling albeit no cruising. Will be back in Orlando in a month but no cruising. One bright point of this lockdown is all the money we have saved since Feb from not cruising. See you two in a future cruise and stay safe! Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  19. I would book the cabana with the new lower pricing first and THEN cancel the higher priced booking. That way you are sure to get a cabana before cancelling. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  20. Going so high for all cruise stocks does not make any sense right now. I had some buy limits since april that have not hit. Instead of prices going down, with no income coming in, the cruise lines stocks are going up. Stock rising makes no sense to me. Glad I got to buy a bunch in march when cruise stocks tanked. Had to buy bargain priced shares of RCL, CCL and NCL. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  21. I love MSC for their YC experience and VALUE. What we do miss are the crown loft rooms on the big ships. Now if MSC had Crown Lofts with Yacht Club amenities and pricing it would be perfect for my family and I.
  22. Sorry late to this thread. Last time I was on Explorer in 2017 Alaska it was CL and DL just like in your pic. But the CL is gone on Explorer and there is now a SL where the DL used to be? Booked Explorer for June 2021 and have not been on since 2017. I believe the DL is now where the cigar room was? Also Explorer did not get her AMP correct?
  23. I have a buy limit set in the upper $20's. Dont need more RCL stock but at that price, would be worth buying more. Stock market is a legal form of gambling for us folks here in the 50th state. Although you can do your research on companies and make an educated guess. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  24. I cant believe the stock went from $19.50 in March to the prices we have today. Aren't we all happy to have bought on this price drop? Never in the past 5 years would I have seen RCCL or any cruise stock sink to the lows in March. See you all onboard when the sailings resume! Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
