  1. In the VIP amenities, I noticed there is no mention of complimentary beverages while playing in the casino. Have they done away with that with the push for getting passengers to upgrade to the higher level of booking that includes beverages, wi-fi, etc? In the past, we have always had complimentary beverages in the casino offered to us with these types of bookings.
  2. Nothing negative to say vs. the 7 day. Positives are extra sea days, which are always welcomed in my book. Sailing under the Golden Gate bridge is a wonderful memory!
  3. Forgive me if this has been covered. I did a search and read a lot of lido cabana threads, but nothing answered my question. We just booked one for our Alaskan cruise next year. I did read that some felt it was best not to be too close to the end where the Dive In is located. I booked the St. Tropez, which is the last cabana on the other end. Is there a reason that being on the end there will be less desirable than being in one of the center cabanas? My thought was that with only having "neighbors" on one side, it might be quieter, but I guess that's really dependent upon what
  4. I went ahead and booked it. Based on the one photo, it looks like there will be SOME view, even if it is fairly limited. It is a casino offer that is too good to pass up, so we'll just roll with it. Not even sure the cruise will happen, it's for next April. Not counting my chickens just yet.
  5. I have, thanks. It doesn't look like there are photos for that particular cabin on the site. It won't allow me to view any of the photos unless I sign up to be a paying member.
  6. The cabin is an obstructed veranda, so there is definitely a veranda. I'm just concerned with how obstructed it actually is. I've seen pics of a few of the other cabins available for my offer, and they are squarely in the center of a tender, so there is basically no view at all. This cabin appears to have a break in between the tenders, so I'm hoping there will be some opportunity to see out. Thank you, VictOriann, the pictures helped. I do think your pics are a decent representation of what this cabin will be like as well, and it looks as if there is enough of a gap between
  7. Thank you. Those are the only pictures I could find as well. Unfortunately the photo of the view from the balcony is a pretty poor representation, and I still can't really tell what to expect as far as obstruction. Was just hoping someone might have some more info. Thanks for your response, though!
  8. We have an opportunity to get a pretty good deal on an obstructed verandah on the Koningsdam. Wondering if anyone has sailed in 4145? It looks like the cabin is situated in between two tenders, so we are hoping for at least some ocean view, unlike some of the other cabins that are squarely in the middle of a tender. I have done Google searches and have only found one photo and it's a very poor picture taken from inside the cabin. Hard to tell what the view is really like.
  9. For our sailing it was $315 PP. Yours may vary depending on the difference between an inside room and a balcony on your sailing.
  10. Yes, we had to pay all of our charges up front at the time we booked. And we were advised that all of it is non refundable, so make sure you are booking what you want! Our offer was for an inside cabin, we upgraded to a balcony, and we also had to pay the upgrade fee at the time of booking as well. There is also a $100 PP deposit that must be paid when you book. That money will be posted to your shipboard account when you board.
  11. True enough! LOL But let's say I had 15 drinks in the casino, then went to see a show and wanted a cocktail. If they're counting the casino drinks, I'd have a problem. (Although, realistically, if I had 15 cocktails in the casino I probably couldn't even WALK to the theater to see a show. Ha!)
  12. I doubt this would ever be an issue on our cruise, but my travel agent brought this up, and did not know the answer to his own thought. LOL We are going on a casino VIP sailing, where we are offered free drinks while playing in the casino. We also booked with the Best Sale Ever package, so we have free beverages with our fare, available anywhere on board the ship. I know there is a limit of 15 alcoholic beverages per day. Since the casino offering of free beverages is independent of our beverage package, would the drinks ordered and consumed in the casino be marked against the
  13. In my experience, all the places on Stone Island that I have been to, readily accept USD. Be aware, though, that they don't have to adhere to official exchange rates, so you may end up paying more for your tab if you are paying in USD than you would if you pay in pesos. As much as 10% or more. If we know we are planning to do restaurant beach days at all the ports on our Mex Riviera cruise, we will buy pesos in advance from our bank. There is a fee, but it is typically offset on our first port. Or if you are traveling with a group, you can all place one order together to save
  14. I have used them several times over the past 10 yrs or so. In both Cabo and Puerto Vallarta. Everything was as described, meeting up with the tour was simple. I would recommend them if they have something you're interested in.
  15. Also, just wanted to add that if you are in a mini-suite, that is not considered a suite as far as earning extra suite benefits such as priority boarding.
