  1. I use a Big Box store TA and they regularly have Group rates that are far lower than the X website pricing. Same AI and they usually throw in a nominal OBC as well as a cash card to be used after sailing. You just have to ask and insist they check even if they say they don’t have a Group.
  2. Do the unvaccinated folks have something that tells them apart for the vaccinated ?
  3. On current cruises, they talk about cloth bracelets to be worn AT ALL TIMES designating that you are vaccinated. Are these traclets in addition to the cloth bracelets? Otherwise, how does staff determine who is vaccinated or not (and should be wearing masks)?
  4. Is there a TV channel that broadcasts the Captain announcements? I have heard that the ‘front of ship’ webcam channel does but others say NO. Can anyone confirm?
  5. A cruise blogger posted a video saying that on the 2nd sailing of The Edge, an unvaccinated couple left a shore excursion to site see on their own. This is a violation of the rules. They got caught and were kicked off the ship at a foreign port. Does anyone have firsthand knowledge of this?
  6. ? You stopped going because you didn’t like the music ? OR ? You stopped in for a drink because you liked the music?
  7. My last cruise had a placard in the bathroom stating towels left hanging will not be replaced but towels on the floor will be replaced. I found they replaced even the towels left hanging. I guess old habits die hard.
  8. Thanks all. I realize it has been out of service - as have all the ships- for over a year but the message was that the tendering dock was the wrong height for the port transfer vessels and that the life boats were the right height but too unstable to use in rocky seas. After several passengers fell, they stopped using the Magic Carpet for tendering. Also was mentioned that the Magic Carpet is too windy for dining so it is now planned to only be a bar. Just wondering if this was a single event or a new policy.
  9. Is it true that they no longer use the Magic Carpet as a tendering dock or as a restaurant? Someone reported this on Facebook.
  10. To Dr TeeRick or anyone else ‘in the know’, what does it take for these vaccines to move out of Emergency Use Authorization and into regular approved vaccines. Thanks
  11. I have had fellow passengers take my wet clothes out of the washer (when it was done) in order to use it themselves. They piled my wet clothes on the counter because I wasn't there when the washer ended. Also want to be there right when the dryer ends to hang/fold my dry clothes. This means sitting in the laundry room waiting for the end of each phase washing / drying.
  12. I have enjoyed reading and learning through this thread. I wonder is this thread breaking a record for number of posts / views on Cruise Critic?
