  1. The Sailaway rate on the Aug 29 sailing includes the Free Open Bar as always before. The $679 rate that includes two perks: you can choose any two of the options; however, if you do not choose the alcohol perk, you will still get the Open Bar along with your choice of the other two perks (ie free wifi). We have a Sailaway rate and will get free open bar but do not get to choose our cabin or any of the other "giveaways."
  2. I can empathize with your request to have accessible cabins available when you want to book them; I, also, spend a great deal of time trying to find an accessible cabin. But again, those who have difficulty walking cannot just store their scooter or wheelchair in some out of the way place. How are they to get around their cabin? How are they to walk to and from their alternate scooter parking spot? Should the cruise ship also provide valet service? Not a reasonable idea at all. I do agree that the cruise lines need to increase the number of accessible cabins available-especially as to the larger and larger aging population.
  3. Why would you opine that people book accessible rooms just to store their scooters?Scooter users are generally handicapped in their ability to walk; this may not be as extreme as other's but it is still a handicap.
  4. I can't tell you how many times I have requested the orange extension cord from Special Needs and it was not provided. Then the request to the room steward for one takes sometimes days for it to appear. Case in point: you cannot count on the ship providing one.
  5. Thank you. Just checked but it is not in the summary, I will just keep checking.
  6. We are booked on the Sun at the end of the Summer and I would like to include the internet along with our other on-board amenities. I have looked everywhere on the website for how to purchase and what the rate is but cannot find the info. Can anyone provide me how to book or do I have to wait til we are on the ship. And how much is internet access?
  7. There are always cabins on each ship that are held back from the general public reservations. Their locations are different ship to ship. Special Needs may be able to help with a search for a better located cabin on your ship.
  8. Email: special_needs@rccl.com I would guess you know that Empress is no longer going to Cuba and that is why the price drop was so drastic and people jumped on the bargain price.
  9. The no more open bar was also posted here:https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/21130-norwegian-ends-open-bar-on-sun-and-sky.html Then, again, maybe they just copied the info from CruiseRadio!
  10. https://cruiseradio.net/norwegian-cruise-line-stops-open-bar-on-two-ships/ No more open bar on Sun and Sky. So glad we booked the September 7 yesterday!
  11. I, too, suggest that you check your homeowners' policy. We had luggage stolen and were reimbursed through insurance.
  12. Thanks, to upgrade wouldn't be a bad option since we start at the lowest price.
  13. Has anyone had experience in changing their guarantee stateroom after the room has been assigned? Just wondering as Royal Caribbean permits a change as long as it is in the same category as the one finally assigned.
  14. I believe that they are only offering the bid opportunity to certain customers via email at this time.
  15. Sun was scheduled for Cuba but is now being rerouted to ports in Nassau and Freeport.
