  1. Pins get 6 drinks, the only thing at happy hour are snacks, no free drinks. D+ gets 5 drinks on card, no actual happy hour.
  2. @erinsmom03I think 12:01 should be fine and yes you can get a check-in time without passport.
  3. I don't think there was a semantics difference in what @twangstersaid though. I would not assume it is 2*2*2, I would assume it is 1*2, 2*2 and 3*2 As its based it is double what you get, that's all. If people don't understand basic math and can't comprehend...that's on them.
  4. For those who are sailing in Nov, you need to check the app. I know quite a few people who didn't realize their check-in was open because they were 1. waiting on an email and/or 2. going by what the website say in CP.
  5. Yes, you can modify booking from room type and price and still qualify as long as booking is not cancelled. Your booking date and number doesn't change unless it is cancelled. I swapped dates and ships and my booking number/date was the same, so it qualifies for the double points.
  6. I haven't actually read from a cruiser who has experienced the Key recently though. That being said it is pretty crappy to only have priority boarding during your scheduled time. That basically means if it is 3pm, you just get to go in front of the other 3pm folks. On the newer/amped ships the Key is $20+.....this makes it the worst "deal."
  7. @brilloheadI am only saying what a rep told me, we all know they have different answers
  8. European pricing is different. Anthem is sailing out of that market now. In the US standard drinks are $13.
  9. Are your B2B the same itinerary? Because if they have different ports, like how sometimes Allure does an Eastern one week and Western another? Then you might be charged differently based on that. Also demand and such.
  10. Based on the info I received, the only C&A status that matters now is Pinnacle, they can board an hour each way like those staying in suites. The RCG rep I spoke with says those with the Key will be similar to Suites/Pin as they are allowed an hour each way. So if check-in time is 1pm, you can board around noon, but you won't actually be able to just show up at 10:30. Of course based on ports YMMV, you could potentially be able to show up whenever.
  11. You still have to show up at assigned time but you will get an hour each way I believe. Right now suites and pinnacles have an hour leeway. That will be the deal for Key holders. So if you snag a 12:30 check-in, if the ship is ready you can board by 11:30. But you won't be able to show up at 10:30 or whatever the earliest time is.
  12. In some cases 10 is actually the max. With the size of your party, they will split you into probably a group of 6 and 7. Just read on FB about how some ships are only doing 8, per CDC recommendations. Poster was quite upset as 2 people always had to sit separately for the duration of the cruise.
  13. Remember this is very much a YMMV. One could get to PC and that would be the day they are enforcing the rules.
  14. You might not be able to change because times are all taken.
  15. In CP look at order history, it should give you a total paid. Divide that total by the number of days and you will get your sale price.
  16. Good luck, I noticed the "sale" prices on my 4 day sailings are $27.99
  17. If it is available but says online reservations unavailable it means sold out. It was available for this weeks Symphony sailing and I knew someone who tried to purchase it and got that message. You can only purchase the Key online. If it is not available to purchase that means it is not going to be utilized for that sailing. It was originally available for my Oct 31st sailing and then we all got cancellation notices in Aug and it was removed from CP.
  18. I can't really agree that RCG should have made changes before opening the bookings. Because they started manually moving people before the bookings opened up, it is just they couldn't do everyone's before they would have to put the ship up for bookings. I am sure there is a certain criteria when it comes to sailings. I am also sure that RCG held back rooms based on algorithms and criteria but they just may not be able to accommodate everyone as each ship may have a difference in layout based on bells and whistles. I understand there are a limited number of suite, room to accommodate 3,4,5+ pax which is why they asked for time to complete this.
  19. In most cases you won't be notified of check-in. It appears that 45 days will be the norm on certain ships now that most final payments aren't due until 30 days before. My Oct allure 31st sailing opened at exactly 90 days but then a week later FP was pushed down to 30 days and check-ins were moved back. Most of the ships currently sailing will have a check-in date in the app.
  20. @Reina del MarYour cabins will be allocated, they held back all the suites to allocate them to transferred guest. If you aren't staying in a suite, you will get like accommodations. They had to open the bookings, otherwise the sailing wouldn't happen. I get the frustration but there are thousands of people affected by this and they have to do them manually. You still have 5 days and then another week if you don't like where they put you cancel.
  21. First, C&A status has nothin to do with RoyalUp offers. RoyalUp is a third party service. Second, it depends on inventory and capacity. For example: I sail Oct 31st on Allure, people have been getting offers since Aug but I never received one. Even if I go to the site and put info in, it gives me a message about making sure I am within the 30day time frame. I well within but no offers. I assume it is because I am in a 2br GS and have no where to upgrade to. That might be your case based on your room type, ships capacity and juts plain inventory.
  22. @brillohead Thanks, for the clarification. I am sure guest service would have sent me to the proper people.
  23. @renzaIf you are cruising close to reaching the next tier you can go to guest services and get your benefits. Some very helpful people on the "blog that shall not be named" informed me of this and C&A confirmed it. I turn diamond midway through my Jan 16th harmony. I have a Jan 24th mariner a day after disembarking. I was informed I could go to guest services the first day and get my benefits activated, so that way I won't have to get the UBP.
