  1. Had the key for an 8 night Eastern Caribbean itinerary on Adventure OTS leaving out of Port Everglades. We had our own security line and check in line (although we got there early so it didn't give us an advantage at the time). Lunch at Chops wasn't crowded and we were out within an hour. My husband planned to spend some quality time on the Flowrider and the extra hours were well worth it. Most of the times were split between him and one other person. Having the reserved spot in the Lyric wasn't really necessary for the most part but it was very handy for Studio B. We did have priority disembarkation at each of the ports even though we docked at the pier. Disembarkation at the end was pretty pointless going through terminal 29. We had an escort to get off the ship but then we were just with everyone else. Overall it was well worth it for us.
  2. Yep the app has all the menus. We leave in 10 days and the menus on the app are similar to the ones that have been posted recently.
  3. It seems like Barbary is worried about getting kicked to a different room because of a stellar bid?
  4. I don’t see it being a scam. Counting on it being available and you winning wouldn’t be wise if you needed more space. For us, we are more than fine with the room we have. If we do win with a bid that is cheaper than what it would be if we booked the bigger room, then that would equally be awesome.
  5. Rarely do I have pockets so I have a wallet iPhone case. There are spaces for cards and some cash. Has a wrist strap so it’s easy to carry around.
  6. The airport and the port are right next to each other so there’s nothing in between. I think the closest Walmart will be the one on Sunrise on the west side of 95.
  7. 30 days out from being on Adv OTS (3/30 sailing). We are currently in a balcony. Spacious Balcony: $150 pp JS: $250 pp GS: $450 pp GS 2 Bed was also available but glossed over that starting bid. Can have DH forward me the email if anyone is interested in the $. Online all suites are sold out. Put in a min bid on the JS.
  8. Why not give her the option to pay for 1 device VOOM then? Then you both don't need to worry about racking up a huge bill.
  9. Personally we leave the auto gratuity as it is (prepaying actually) then tip above and beyond as we see fit. Since RC doesn’t give an actual breakdown, I would never want to take away a tip from someone who helped in our vacation but we didn’t meet face to face.
  10. It's not a hold on a credit card, it's a pre-authorization "charge". It shows up as a small dollar amount on your active statement but will fall off. Doesn't tie up a significant amount of credit available unlike using a debit card which places a larger hold on the actual amount in your account. Unless this is your first time ever traveling with a credit card, you've experienced this many times without even knowing about it.
  11. Not at all. Just be aware if you use a debit card, there will be significant holds placed on your account until everything is reconciled. Not a problem if you have a good amount in your account but can tie up fund available. Most use a credit card which doesn’t attach the same high hold amounts.
  12. We leave 3/30 on Adventure and the eDocs still don’t show in the cruise planner. Luckily my husband saved the email that contained them so I could print the luggage tags out.
  13. $19.99 on Adventure. They removed the 20% off banner and kept the price lol.
  14. How was the volcano hike in St Kitts? Doing the same itinerary in March.
