  1. Be thankful the person running it knew what they were doing. We were going to do it on Allure last year. We asked how long we had to get the names. The guy kept telling us to came back when we were done and whoever had the most would win. We tried clarifying, an hour, 2 hours, 3 days....? Needless to say, we said "screw this" after taking two selfies. LOL
  2. No, it was more than a year before the cruise. Good luck
  3. It worked for me last year. I waitlisted 2 cabins next to each other. I received an email in less than a week saying the cabins had become available.
  4. Yeah thanks. I couldn't remember what the Oasis class windows looked like but I found this picture TY took in the Solarium. Different, but they do open.
  5. I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure the windows on Oasis class pool decks also open.
  6. Yes. I grew up in Queens and started riding public transportation on my own at 10 or 11. If I hadn't moved to LI, my kids would be doing the same.
  7. I love deck 6. Quick run down to the promenade for early morning coffee or late night pizza.
  8. My 14yo daughter takes the ferry to Fire Island with her friends. I heard through the grapevine that my sister was horrified.
  9. Yes, but the point is some parents don't want to go in. You only have to be 14 to enter a Disney park alone.
  10. It should be like it is onboard. Over a certain age you just need to sign a waiver and they can use Flowrider, rock wall....
  11. I don't think so. The windows slide to the side.
  12. That's just silly. If the cruise was 2 months later she would be in the teen club. Would you say the same thing about a girl that just turned 12?
  13. Has Allure started stopping at Coco Cay yet? All of the cruises between today and 11/3 show it stopping at Nassau.
  14. I don't think they have any 7 night cruises out of Florida on Freedom or Voyager class. It stinks. That's actually the reason I tried Carnival when I did.
  15. I was going to say something similar. In the last year I sailed on Allure and Carnival Magic. My Magic cruise was $100 more than Allure.
  16. I have heard of exceptions between the 2 teen clubs or within the AO age groups. I' haven't heard of them moving someone from the Youth Program to the Teen Program.
  17. Is that insurance through the cruiseline? I always purchase through a 3rd party so I put in the dollar amount I want to insure. Plus I add gratuities after I purchase insurance.
  18. I prepay. I usually wait until the week before to call and add the gratuities.
  19. I have to agree. Even when I'm booking a one night stay in a $150 a night hotel I make sure I know the cancellation policy before booking. Then I check the confirmation to make sure it's right. Like other posters have said the OP would have been able to change it within 24 hours. Last year my sister-in-law accidentally booked the wrong cruise. It was non-refundable but she was able to call and change it within 24 hours. Luckily she posted it on Instagram and my kids saw that she was on the wrong cruise.
  20. How long was the cruise? A 7 night cruise is normally $250 pp. Is that some sort of new "deal"? No deposit for kids, but double for adults.
  21. I may have missed this somewhere, but why was the deposit $2000 for 6 people in 2 balconies?
