  1. Received this too. It was only a matter of time that the major travel agencies would start to cover the additional $14 pp add on for the beverage pkg. Glad to see that it is starting to happen.
  2. Called Captains Club to find out about the release date for members and they did not know anything about 2021 sailings let alone when the release for CC members would be.
  3. Out of all of this, the single most interesting thing I see is that X is comparing themselves to NCL and what they charge for a beverage pkg !! NCL?? Really?? True, they are the only other major line that offers a pkg as a perk, but NCL????
  4. Don't forget that you will be cruising the coast and when in port you can make calls and have free internet and calling because for all the ports you are in California, except for the onestop in Mexico, where you can get a calling plan from your wireless provider for about $5 a day If you take the $300 obc it will pay all your tips and leave a bit of money for extras
  5. I remember the days when there were NO perks and we all just paid for our drinks and at the end of the cruise got a printout with all our charges. We all just paid on the back end. Now we pay upfront!
  6. Bottom line for me is that if I want to go and pay the extra $14 pp per day then I will. If I choose to go elsewhere, someone else will pay the $14 and be happy with it. When you fly now, if you want the legroom that you use to have you have to pay extra for what we all use to get in a normal plane ticket cost that wes included in the price. Most people grumble about it, which is fine, but we still fly, and people will still cruise, but might choose to not pay extra. To each his/her own. Figure it out with the bev pkg included and the $14 pp and without and then add the Bev pkg and it will still cost you more than if included with the $14. Just my opinion
  7. Remember, when you get the Beverage PKG as a "PERK" the price is reduced and NOT full price. When you purchase on board you pay FULL PRICE with no reduction, so, it will cost you more onboard
  8. The point of the ad is to get people interested in cruising on X. I think that they missed the point. I love the song, and yes I know what it is about. The song on it's own is fine. The song on an ad campaign?? If I didn't know what Eden was, how the hell am I suppose to know that this is on a ship ?? X is trying to convince me that if I sail with them this is how my "TRIP" will be?? I may have the beverage pkg when I sail, but I have never been on a "TRIP" like that on a ship. The pint is to get people to cruise on X, and I think that they missed that point. The print ads actually show more about "life on board" than the TV ad. A hit and a miss in my opinion.
  9. WOW, way better than Equinox 3 weeks ago. It least they are newer!! After the mes they created, I doubt they will cut them back to jut a selection of 5 and go through that again
  10. Anyone currently onboard know if they updated the movies to be newer?? Maybe list a few that are showing now?? Last month on Equinox the movies were decades old other than the latest Dumbo movie
  11. Well I have admit that X listened!! Today I actually got a personal phone call direct from X thanking me for my feedback regarding the removal of the free movies. I had previously received an email thanking me but the phone call was the topper. I expressed our thanks as we have 24 days of cruising coming up with a B2B, and there are some nights where the entertainment is "been there, done that" and a nice evening in watching a movie is very relaxing. Just like we do at home sometimes on TV or at the movie theater. Just hope that they will offer some a bit newer than what was available last month! We will take what we can get
  12. Wonder if they have upgraded them to be more current too?? Wouldn't that be even better???
  13. Glad I wrote to them !! Hope that now that movies are back, that they might be a bit mor current as well, but we'll take what we get I guess. I will say that Princess (we don't sail often) has the BEST selection of movies in the cabin though.
  14. And the movies are OLD ones. Nothing very current or recent.
