  1. My OBC via a local TA appeared in my account under my purchases and gifts. I could see it there (with an option to cancel or “unpurchase” it) along with the internet plan I myself purchased.
  2. Had free coffee from the samovar in the Lido this AM. Coffee was also free in MDR last night with dessert course. Anything espresso-based will be a charge, but it is very reasonable compared to other lines and even many independent shops on land. Unsure of iced tea situation.
  3. I plan on roughly following this for my day in Mazatlan next month: http://www.jennex.com/Self Guided Walking Tour of Mazatlan El Centro-1.pdf I’ve started mapping out the locations I’m more interested in on a custom Google map
  4. I upgraded to this box after having earring posts bent under “general suitcase packing pressure” when I used Ziplocs and little cloth bags: https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/wolf-palermo-zip-jewelry-case/5509883/lite?country=US&currency=USD&&mrkgcl=760&mrkgadid=3313964214&utm_content=35855568693&utm_term=pla-321753254327&utm_channel=shopping_ret_p&sp_source=google&sp_campaign=674512793&rkg_id=0&adpos=1o3&creative=158291011861&device=t&matchtype=&network=g&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIkKaRhoXG5gIVsSCtBh3VvgRcEAQYAyABEgIC6_D_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds Think I bought it on eBags for much less, plus a 20% coupon!
  5. Not sure about reflection, but the Silhouette did not carry Tatch this summer. Good luck!
  6. You can make reservations in advance if you wish, but the point of Select Dining for me is to go whenever I feel like it and not have to plan ahead......so I have never made them. Almost always get seated without a wait, but if you go near when the first show gets out, there can be a 30 minute wait. You get a buzzer and can entertain yourself in a nearby bar.
  7. I used SPB for a 2 day private tour (just two of us + guide) earlier this month. Very well organized and good communication in the planning stages. Was very nice to have such a tiny group because we could easily add in some impromptu stops we just happened to be passing when we had a bit of unexpected “free time” in the intensely timed/choreographed itinerary.
  8. Had Grand Mariner soufflé last week in MDR....probably night 10 or 11 of 14. It wasn’t listed on the menu, but our waiter mentioned it.
  9. I just returned Sunday from 14 nights in Concierge on Silhouette. We had footstools, which I do agree is a nice addition.....but I don’t know if Concierge is worth the price (even though I paid for it as a move up bid, so not a very large financial investment). Do you need canapés every afternoon? There is already so much food....and it’s more of a nuisance to have the stateroom attendant interrupt you to bring them, then pick them up later. Everyone loves a free bottle of bubbly....but it would be cheaper just to buy one if you want it. Veranda was actually larger in our original cabin, before winning the move up bid, as it was near the hump. I don’t think we used any of the other “benefits”
  10. My blood pressure went up like 20 points just reading the original post and contemplating this 4 hour window.
  11. I wear this on my face everyday; it even makes a good primer for makeup. Don’t recommend if you have dry skin. It’s the one with the pink cap. https://www.amazon.com/Missha-Around-Finish-SoltreeBundle-Natural/dp/B072635YF3/ref=sr_1_4?crid=1PIDVC5AB2S8J&keywords=missha+sunscreen+soft+finish&qid=1561425407&s=gateway&sprefix=Missha+suns%2Caps%2C186&sr=8-4 They also have a blue cap version that I wear on my arms/legs when I’m not covered up (I almost always wear long sleeves outside; use a rash guard at the beach/pool). And a green cap version that is waterproof. I have spent years and hundreds of dollars in wasted greasy products to find these!
  12. I renewed my husband’s global entry at this beginning of this month. Online app took about 5 minutes. Did not need an interview, office visit, passport scan, photo, whatever else people have asked. Approval seemed automatic and more of a formality. New card was mailed in 1-2 weeks.
  13. I wish there was enough time, but we fly out next Wednesday. On the bright side, vacation is almost here!
  14. I have seen many threads and comments on CC about the “black hole” of requesting the tags online and how it’s better to call.....but I did the online link about a month ago and received my tags in less than 7 days! But now I’ve been upgraded and they are moot 🤣🤣I have to print out the updated set
