  1. We booked New Zealand South Pacific Crossing last week. Cruise begins on 3-28-21. Cheers, Denise
  2. Have your TA call back! We got a firm NO on any adjustments when our cruise price dropped by a couple of thousand dollars after final payment. Our TA called back the next day and we were given credit for shore excursions, beverage cards, a cabin upgrade and $$ toward a future cruise. It can’t hurt and might help. Good Luck, Denise
  3. If the port was Florida we probably would be cruising every month. LOL. We are near San Francisco. We have fewer choices but certainly take advantage of those we have. I have finally figured out the weight thing and might gain a pound or two but its gone the next week. Cheers, Denise
  4. Thanks! We usually do long cruises so a 5 day cruise has never been in our sights. However, we always go away for hubby’s birthday. We couldn't resist the half price for 2nd passenger sale. We got a great deal and also had a sizable credit we had to use. Definitely win/win. Did I mention we live 30 minutes from the port? Heaven. Cheers, Denise
  5. I was wondering the same thing about the MVP party. We just booked a 5 day cruise also. Cheers, Denise
  6. We just booked for 3-28-2021! Our final payment is 12-2020. We had an email that gave us $150pp OBC if we booked before 9-17-19. Also had a $600 credit from a prior cruise refund. Add the explore 4 and internet for a verandah. We are happy cruisers. Cheers, Denise
  7. Wow, your photos are great!! Thanks once more for taking us along. Cheers, Denise
  8. Thanks so much for taking us along. We had the best cruise ever on the Maasdam in June. Three heavenly weeks. Cheers, Denise
  9. I worked in a call center for 13 years. The answers you receive all depend on the rep on the phone. Sad but very true. Cheers, Denise
  10. Very well said! We also thought watching the Love Boat was as close as we would get to a cruise. I feel excited, blessed and thankful every time I set foot on the gangway to begin a cruise. The crew work so very hard to make our cruises memorable. I thank them every way I can. Crew polishing the railings, a quick “thank you for all you do” brings the most brilliant smiles. You get several chances every day to make someones life a little brighter. Shine your light on them. Cheers, Denise
  11. Yes. I keep my phone in Airplane Mode on the ship. The unlimited Medallion Net was really wonderful. Cheers, Denise
  12. I agree, Kay was a very personable and lovely woman. Cheers, Denise
  13. We were on the June 18-July 9 Maasdam cruise. The EXC presenters were excellent. On our cruise they were out and about quite a bit. I spent time talking with almost all of them outside of the EXC desk. Lance, however, was a different story. Not once in 21 days did he say hello, good bye, how are you, when he would encounter you in the public areas. I found him to be most unsocial and a bit arrogant. As a rule, I never even know who the cruise director is but since he announced the EXC programs and gave the port lectures he was recognizable. I have heard that they won’t show the lectures on TV due to copyright infringement. Whether that is true or not, I have no idea. Cheers, Denise
  14. Thank you for posting this info. We now have found our 2021 cruise. 🤗🤗🤗 Cheers, Denise
  15. Thanks for taking the time to post during your cruise. We cancelled the VOV for 2020 to take our kids and grands on a trip. Hopefully we will be able to book for 2021. We are also booked on the Tales of the South Pacific this year. Cheers, Denise
