  1. Yes it is a cooler, and like a cooler you need to put ice in it. We ask our room Stewart for a ice bucket then take the top off and put it in the “cooler”. Keeps things a little cooler and he/she will refresh it when they do the room.
  2. Guess this is not part of their “save the seas program” with rubber and plastic. They want you to throw away the old one and purchase the new.
  3. Just for reference, I just checked a site that gives you past pricing history and it appears that the lowest a JS got to was 1,239.00 each. That was March of 2018.
  4. All kinds of beach access and chairs that you do not need to pay for. All over the island.
  5. Here is part of an story from business insider, talks about Royals pre cruise thoughts on getting the add-one: Michael Bayley, the CEO of Royal Caribbean International, uses reference points to increase how much money customers spend on the company's cruises by emphasizing pre-trip purchases. The idea is that spending $100 on a drink package, for example, will seem less expensive if you by it alongside a $1,500 cruise ticket. If your reference point for what that cruise should cost is $1,800, then buying the drink package to make your total pre-cruise expense $1,600 still feels like a deal. And once you're on the cruise, you're less likely to consider the cost of the drink package when buying other items, meaning you're likely to spend more overall. "What we found is if you spend $100 before you sail, that's spent and gone - you don't even put it in your budget for when you're on vacation," Bayley told Business Insider during a 2018 interview. "So every pre-cruise revenue dollar that we generate will often generate 50% more onboard revenue for that customer." The strategy worked, and it was one of the reasons Royal Caribbean doubled earnings in the three years after Bayley became CEO at the end of 2014.
  6. Did Navy time also, and you do need to remember they do not have their hands tied the way the Navy does on yard periods and repairs. It would not surprise me at all if they don’t cancel anything but piece it back together during different port calls.
  7. It’s 6 months to book it, not sure how long you have to take it. We found out the hard way. We had a lot of cruises booked also and were not paying attention and never received a notice about the pinnacle cruise or our name tags. I think a porch pirate now has pinnacle name tags. It just passed us by. I called C&A and they informed me that my time limit for booking was over and I lost it. 😩
  8. What types of things do they give away at these types of events? Hope you had a great cruise.
  9. We were their last week and it was to cold for us. However we do live in Florida and don’t get in our pool unless the water is above 85 degrees, we are now spoiled. We did see people in the water just not sure where they were from. For the slides, it did not look like it had any lines so if you can take the colder water it might be worth it.
  10. Thanks, I never heard it come up before either. As stated above you with the countless threads on the subject why no one has tried it. Can this gratuity be mandatory, none of the others are.
  11. I need to ask this just because 😇. Seeing how we all know that it helps to get a little quicker service if the server knows you are going to give them a couple of dollars when you get a drink. (They remember you and keep coming around.). What would Royal say if you told them you did not want to pay the gratuity when you purchase the package? Do they make gratuity mandatory, and if so then it is gratuity or a fee. Sorry just had to ask, I do prepay the gratuity’s but with tipping such a fun topic I had to ask.
  12. Let them know that you are D+ when you purchase it and they should take care of it then. Check your bill first day just to ensure, but when you buy it they should be able to tell you the cost.
  13. This has to happen on the ship, but they are always very good about it.
  14. I think you can increase your daily budget, Disney tickets are more than 100 these days. 😇
  15. When you hear people bragging about all their big win’s, ask to see their annual win loss statement. While yes, some do but as stated before, they don’t keep the lights on with us winning.
  16. I did years ago on Majesty. Went to windjammer for a Hamburger at lunch, told that they don’t do them and I had to go to Johnny rockets. Talked to Food and Beverage manager later and he told me that because they make money at Johnny rockets they will not serve hamburgers in windjammer, they want the customer to pay. Don’t know if that is still the case, but I went and cancelled 3 cruises on that ship and will not sail it now because I don’t believe you should have to pay for food and tip the waiters again on a cruise ship. Like I ask the poor guys and girls that are stuck pushing the speciality restaurants around the ships, “Why do I need to go to your place, is the main dining room that bad” or “Sorry, I am already tipping the dining room for my evening meals”.
  17. Have the put out yet how access to the Costal Kitchen is going to work on this cruise? I thought they had a problem last year with so many pinnacles.
  18. Can you not check the percentage of onetime arrivals for the flight you are looking at? That should tell you a little something about your chances. If it’s on time most of the time I would go for it. Of course I would get insurance that said if I missed my ship they would get me to it.
  19. I booked at guarantee JS on this same cruise back in March and had my assignment about a month or so ago. Funny I got another Royal up offer today for this cruise and when you look online it’s full.
  20. I know one who wished they had done that, when she made pinnacle, her almost ex did also without having cruised in a few years. He called C&A and booked the free cruise.
