  1. Just wanted to come back and thank Paulette for posting the e-mail for the dining department. I sent them an email this morning and got a prompt reply with my issue fixed. I was not able to even close to being able to get this fixed on the phone with customer service! Yay for Cruise Critic!
  2. Thanks! I just sent them an email so hopefully they can help us out!
  3. We have a party of 8 on our upcoming Rhapsody cruise. One couple did not know to request MTD when booking (the other 6 of us have MTD). When we tried to link the reservations we found out that they are assigned to late dining. The have been put on the "wait list" to join us. How likely is it that we will be able to get this fixed if we go to the dreaded podium upon boarding? Should I try to send an email to the dining department and see if they will change it now? I have never had this issue before and would like to avoid any problems. We have the 3 night dining package so I know we will be able to sit together on those nights.
  4. I will be sailing on Rhapsody in 3 weeks..Barcelona to Venice...very port intensive and only 1 sea day. We have the 3 day dining pkg. and aren't too concerned about the food in the MDR as we plan to eat some wonderful lunches in port (Italy 🙂 ). I haven't sailed this class before..my last 2 RCCL ships were Harmony and Oasis so I'm sure the ship will seem small to me. We did a similar itinerary on Harmony out of Barcelona and I will say it was a waste of that ship since it was such a port intensive itinerary as well. I am going in with an open mind..any day at sea is better than a day at work 🙂 We are in cabin 8544 which is a "spacious ocean view" and has a floor to ceiling window. Anyone had this cabin or similar before? We have always had balconies except in the early days when we had a traditional ocean view. 🙂
  5. This is our group's plan also. We planned to go to Nice first and then back track back to Cannes. Can we buy a day pass for the train or what would be the best option for us? We may get off at another stop on the way back to Cannes depending on how much time we spend in Nice.
  6. Thanks so much! I love your attitude and that's how I feel. It is what it is and there's nothing that I can do to change it. One of my favorite things to do on a cruise is lay by the pool and watch people and read. I am just going to have to adjust my expectations. The forecast is not looking good for our cruise at all...just hoping for a little sun:)
  7. I am far from a newbie..this will be my 17th cruise and my 4th from Galveston in September..so I'm well aware that it's hurricane season and that it could rain everyday. I have been extremely fortunate to have had great weather on every cruise. So my question is, what has been your experience with programming etc. if it rains everyday?
  8. Perfect! That's what I thought, but one of my friends (who is a seasoned cruiser) told me that it doesn't work on the ship while in port. I have been on 18 cruises myself, but don't usually stay on the ship. Thanks!
  9. Quick question.. I searched the Carnival website and these boards and can't find the answer. If I should choose to stay on the ship while it's ported in Cozumel, will my cheers package work? I have heard conflicting answers. Thanks in advance! Cheers!
  10. I'm leaving on the Oasis this Sunday. I FINALLY was able to purchase my drink package yesterday. I can't even imagine the amount of money they must be losing. A lot of people, especially those not invested in Royal, are probably getting fed up and looking at other cruise lines. I know I would be tempted. Apparently the wait to talk to someone "live" on the phone is horrendous also..I'm sure it's due to the high call volume from the website being down. It's VERY frustrating!
  11. This has gone on for years! I have been trying to purchase my drink package for 2 days now and can't get into the Cruise Planner. I do not want to get on the phone with a rep right now either as I am at work;). Carnival is no better. What is up with these cruiselines and their IT departments? They have to be losing money over this...Ughh! The good news is that I will be on a cruise in a little over a week and hopefully using my (discounted) drink package..
  12. Thanks for the info! I have sailed out of PC several times, but usually book my flight for the later afternoon. This time I booked an 11:30 a.m. flight. I also booked Cortrans for an 8:00 a.m. pick up. Hopefully all will go well!
  13. Loving your review! I did a similar itinerary last July on the Harmony and it was fabulous! I can see why you need a sea day..it is exhausting to say the least. We didn't take a sea day as it was our first trip to the Med or even Europe for that matter, and we just couldn't get enough. I would do that trip in a heartbeat again..and hope to. My favorite cruise by far! I also love the Freedom! Have a great trip!
