  1. I'm so interested in the bid process I would love to try to book a cheap room just to try for better bidding options next time. Curious what you bid on and your options etc One week countdown! I'm sailing with my brother will be interesting how sharing a room since we were kids will turn out? 😁
  2. Thats exciting I'm on that sailing date as well! I hope this is great news for you. When did you get charged? What room category did you win & what did you originally reserve? How much more did you bid and what bid catagory did you choose, weak, fair strong? Would love to hear the details.
  3. Sorry once again I must reiterate you are comparing apples to oranges the Easy Package is mostly a free throw in or for people who don't drink Martinis which there are plenty. It isn't advertised as a Martini program- you could have had that for just a few dollars more still hundreds less than Celebrity. There are few cruises who would get their value out of the price of a premium drink package and MSC is the only cruise line who allows this low level package and gives it out free many times with no hidden fees like the other cruise lines charge which is a plus not a negative. You could have upgraded your free package a fraction of what you would pay at Celebrity who once again charges $70USD plus 20% gratuities on top of that -yes I said 20% plus 10% tax. You could have paid 140 to upgrade your package no gratuities or tax and had your martini drink you wish and still saved 600 or spend the $10 and save $780. I continually see cruises book MSC to save thousands and then seem confused when they don't get champagne treatment even though MSC offers this white glove treatment for a fraction of the cost
  4. Sorry the actual price as per RC right now quoted straight from their own site is $63.00 - $89.00/per day for 2019-2020 plus 18% gratuities and 10% VAT so too price is $808 USD MSC charged me no tax or gratuities for a grand total of $200 In Canadian which is even less USD to add drinks and wifi. I am continually baffled at the posts I see upset about MSC drink package when cruisers could still by 10 drinks per day out of pocket and still not spend as much as other cruise lines.
  5. Didnt it also cost you hundreds more for the package wigh RC Plus major tax and gratuities. Their soda package is aa expensive as MSC drink package?
  6. I emailed as I couldnt print my tickets and had an emailed set within an hour! Great service
  7. I agree on this site as well as on facebook groups the YC seem to take over everything. Only YC Menu's pinned etc. I wonder if its the organizers who push towards that way as I am curious why nothing else gets pinned as there are way way more rooms for NON YC. Don't be concerned - you paid a fraction for your trip and drink package compared to the other cruise lines out there MSC is way cheaper so even if you have to upgrade a few hundreds to get a better drink package. Do a fake cruise booking and you'll see
  8. The same people who expect to be treated like royalty and have their butler run around like crazy for them
  9. If yoy bid on a doom that has an aurea experience associated with roo ? Will you also recieve the experience benefits of aurea if your bid is accepted
  10. My MSC cruise that I just booked has these packages available to purchase before the cruise, it is probably in your account somewhere if you dig around for it. Package details indicates that if you purchase any of the print packages you may purchase the digital copies on the ship discounted by 50%. Please note these are CAD prices so US is 3/4 the price.
  11. I have seen many inquiries regarding internet packages & pricing. I too had many questions prior to booking my cruise but I was unable to find these details ahead of time to see if the upgraded package to buy internet and drinks with my cruise was worth the money. Now that I have my cruise booked and paid for I have this information easily available in my MSC account. For those who might be interested I have compiled this information as provided to me fromure MSC which for a 7 day Caribbean Cruise departing Miami on the Meraviglia, I am sure it would be a great guide for other 7 day Caribbean/USA cruises. Please NOTE * I am CANADIAN and all prices shown here are CAD so prices in US$ are much cheaper ( I would multiple by .75 or 3/4 the price) If anyone has pre-booked in US$ maybe you could provide exact US pricing information including which package and your price. * MSC indicates that booking before the cruise saves 20% on all packages offered but I am not sure if anyone has been offered specials 1.

  12. Yes sorry you are right my mistake; I misunderstood liquor for alcohol
  13. Actually that is not accurate there are many beverage packages you can prebook for your cabin. Order them from your MSC account in the Beverage section. I suggest everyone peruse it as there are lots of fun surprises you can book and reasonably priced. Here are the wines I found - Please note prices are Canadian so cheaper for US BOTTLE OF RED WINE IN CABIN Book now Including: 1 bottle of Woodbridge Merlot Can be consumed in cabin It's wine o clock! Per stateroom $ 27 BOTTLE OF HOUSE SPARKLING WINE Price: $ 21 per Stateroom BOTTLE OF HOUSE SPARKLING WINE Book now Including: 1 bottle of house sparkling wine Simply bubbly!
