  1. That's one long sentence. But it's nice to know that RCI compensated you for the inconvenience.
  2. I used an iOS app called QR Code. It's free. I had a guarantee boardwalk for Oasis Dec. 8. For the longest time, when I viewed my SetSail pass it only had "REPRINT" under Deck and "GTY" under stateroom. It did list a muster station though. When I scanned the barcode, the last four numbers (all of the numbers after the dash) were 8323. Sure enough, once my cabin was assigned (exactly 30 days out) it was cabin 8323. As soon as my cabin was assigned, I called and moved it to another cabin in the same category located more where I wanted to be (higher).
  3. I just called this week to prepay my gratuities for 12/8 Oasis. I was off the phone in less than 5 minutes which includes the 2 minute hold for an operator. Easy peasy.
  4. I’m one of those who always purchases the beverage package. I enjoy the convenience and I enjoy trying different brands of liquors and unusual concoctions. I wouldn’t have as much of an appetite to risk trying something new if I were paying in real time, but with the beverage package, these are sunk costs (not free, I know…don’t beat me up). I realize that everyone is unique, but for me having convenient access to refreshing alcoholic beverages is just as important to having a great dining experience each day of my cruise. I don’t have an opinion either way on smuggling. But I do have a question if someone has any experience on that subject, disembarking in the United States. What do you do if you still have some liquor left over at the end of the cruise? Do you throw good liquor down the drain, or do you try to smuggle it by US Customs? I understand that any amount of liquor is allowed into the US as long as you pay the duty, but that’s only if it is in its original sealed packaging. I know if you don’t declare liquor and they find it, you might be pulled aside and made to pay the duty. But, if you don’t declare liquor and they come across an unmarked, unsealed bag of liquid, are there more severe consequences?
  5. Thank you. I forgot about the Intercontinental. I stayed there back in the 80's when I went on either the Carnival Jubilee or Fantasy. Or more likely, it was the early 90's.
  6. I upgraded from YC to Premium Plus on the 4/13 Seaside sailing to take advantage of the Connoisseur drinks and the broader Champagne selections. The cost was $17pp/day.
  7. That's awesome! Have a great cruise. PS: That other person who was down on you was out of line.
  8. We got off the ship for a few drinks in Old San Juan and then took a short taxi ride to Oceano's for dinner. It was fantastic. Roof top dining on the beach.
  9. That's exactly the information I was looking for. Thanks a bunch!
  10. I'm on Seaside next week, 4/13. I too decided to upgrade after reading about the Champagne Bar. I'll let you know my thoughts and share the menu when I get back. BTW, like you, I upgraded to Premium + from YC. I'll also let you know how that worked out.
  11. Thank you, sverigecruiser. I'll give this a try.
  12. I don't often drink champagne or sparkling wine, but I saw that Seaside has a champagne bar and I thought I'd like to try some different brands seeing as I have the Premium + package. Can anyone offer a rookie some suggestions for their favorites that might be available by the glass on board? And for that matter, does anyone have a photo of the champagne bar menu?
  13. I upgraded from YC to Premium +. However when I first inquired by email, they sent me this: Good afternoon, To upgrade to the premium plus package, the pricing will be $308.00 per person. Feel free to give us a call if you wish to confirm the upgrade. Best regards, Heather De La Cruz Cruise Consultant MSC Cruises (USA) Inc. 6750 N. Andrews Avenue, Suite 100 Fort Lauderdale, FL 33309 E-mail: MSCExistingReservations@msccruisesusa.com Phone: 1.800.666.9333 Next, I decided to call because I only wanted to pay the difference between Premium and Premium +, $17/pp per day. The person I spoke with was very accommodating and agreed that I could upgrade my drink package for $17/pp per day. Here's my receipt.
