  1. For us, on an 8 day cruise, it was going to cost about $200 more. But beyond the extra cost, I don't see anyone mentioning the other conditions of the RU2 offer.... (Unless I missed it.) The best offer on this cruise has: Exclusive VIFP rates $50 per person to spend onboard Reduced deposits from $50 per person Free room location upgrade Price Protection Sale ends March 1, 2021 But the RU2 only offers: Cheers included in your offer! Great VIFP Rates Non-refundable Deposit Sale ends March 1, 2021 After factoring in the $50/pp onboard credit, it's actually about $300 more. And after looking at our alcohol tab for the last cruise we took for 16 days, we only spent $550. So for half that time on a ship, this isn't a good deal for us. But for those who are getting the offer for less of an uncharge, good for you! We've never done Cheers because it doesn't come out to be a deal for us. But it would have been fun to have it. If the offers on the RU2 would have been comparable to the other fare, I would have considered it. Just to have the luxury of not paying for drinks onboard... But as of now, we will not be using the code. Oh well!
  2. USD. We were out of Baltimore. You’re welcome!
  3. I feel like the minority, so I haven't said much about it, but I will never go on that ship or its equivalent again. I did find it too crowded. And there were only two small pools. I couldn't even sit in the pool because kids were jumping in and splashing and getting water in my beer. I swore after that cruise I'd never go on that one again. Just got off the Pride yesterday. WAY smaller. Adults only serenity deck. Even though there were almost no children on the boat, the serenity deck never seemed too crowded. And there were TWO other large pools for the kids. One thing I DID miss from the Vista was the IMAX theater and the specialty restaurants. But it was worth the sacrifice to have a ship I actually learned without a map and didn't have kids ruining my vacation because they had no where else to go. Someone told me to book the Havana deck next time. But I don't want to have to pay a premium price to avoid children when I could just find another ship...
  4. Here’s pics of some of the menus from my cruise I got off of yesterday. Not all the bar menus, but hopefully this helps.
  5. A step back is right. Although they probably recycle, it's still incredibly wasteful to print out all those when you know most of them get thrown away. Not to mention the amount of time you have to stand there trying to find the stupid picture of yourselves. I mean, they did away with plastic straws, but it's ok to print all those photos on photo paper??? We sail on the Pride next week and I'm hoping it's on the Hub for us.... Although the screenshots with the watermark are useless to print, we had/have a ton of fun with our awful pictures and I still have those screenshots. 😂
  6. Short of going through every liquid in a suitcase, I don’t think they ever will. I mean, the run runners she has are shampoo and sunscreen looking bottles. Security would become a nightmare if they had to go through everything. Since an Irish car bomb is two liquors and a beer, I can’t imagine how much that would cost. Lol
  7. That does make sense. LOL. Luckily it's not my problem, I drink beer. But my friend is a professional Irish car bomb drinker and she's using a rum runner for her Jameson's, but was going to buy a bottle of Bailey's ahead of time. BUT, Bailey's, nor the equivalent are available in the Fun Shop. I guess she's going to have to figure it out once we board!
  8. Following. Someone told me on another thread that there are more options of liquor available via room service than from the Fun Shops. I haven't been able to find ANYTHING current online. So hopefully someone can educate us!
  9. I know why they don’t. But I wanted to see it. I figured an image existed somewhere.
  10. No prices. That was why I posted. Or is this in response to someone else’s post?
  11. Yep! And supposedly there’s happy hour before the ship leaves Baltimore. Yes! Super annoying.
  12. YES!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you!!! I can't believe my Google search didn't take me there. And the reason I didn't find it on the CC search was I limited it to the message boards. Thanks again!
  13. Hey all, despite a search on CC and an extensive Google search, I can NOT find a Red Frog Pub menu with prices that's newer than 2011. Does anyone have a picture of this? NOT the Red Frog Rum Bar. For some reason, those are plentiful. LOL
  14. So this is all very interesting.... My friend loves Bailey's for her Irish car bombs. She was interested in purchasing a bottle of Bailey's ahead of time but it's not on the Fun Shop menu. I'm also reading conflicting posts about whether they even have Bailey's on board. I just spent 10 minutes Googling for a menu of the liquor that can be purchased for Room Service and can find nothing. Does anyone have a current menu showing what liquor can be purchased in Room Service, please? Or am I misunderstanding how all this works. LOL. I drink beer so this is something I've never looked in to before!!!
  15. So if it was mentioned, I missed it. What ship are you leaving on? I ask because we're going on the Pride next month out of Baltimore, and instead of a 4pm departure time like we're used to in Florida, we have a 6pm departure time. So everything is shifting two hours than we're used to. So in our case, a 1pm boarding time isn't really that late. But I'm not judging you for your disappointment either way! We enjoy getting on board really fast, too. We're always so excited!
  16. That's so weird! What were your two options?
  17. Oh yes! I knew you were serious! Besides what I listed, it's great for small items that I didn't need all the time. Oh! I also put my hairbrushes, my jewelry pouch... It's been two years so that's all I can remember. If you go to YouTube, you'll see all sorts of videos about using them to organize. Seriously, you can find a YouTube video on every subject. LOL
  18. For about the third or fourth time. We're not using it for shoes. And if you don't use one, AGAIN, why are you on this thread?? I'm asking for solutions. Not personal commentary about how you don't use one.
  19. I should have forbidden men from this thread. 🙄 (Forgive me if any of you with useful advice are men.) I have never put shoes or clothes in my organizer. I put all kinds of odds and ends in the pockets along with my hairdryer, flat iron, old fun times, etc. I'm going to look at the Dollar Tree for the one mentioned above, otherwise I think the 3M Command strip trick may be the solution! We'll be on a 14 day cruise so yes, we unpack, settle in, and I try to keep things organized in such a small space. And I have plenty of time to drink a lot of beer 🍻 when I'm done. If you think this is shenanigans, not sure why you're even on this thread.... Thanks to those of you who gave me useful advice!
  20. So I've been using an over-the-door shoe organizer on all our cruises, but there was one problem that's sort of annoyed me. I wondered if anyone else has this problem. And if you DON'T, can you please tell me the exact organizer that you have and where you got it? So the hooks that came with it, although not especially thick, keep the closet door from completely closing. And the organizer hanger on the far side by the closet hinge will move around and then slide and fall down which is also annoying. I'd love to hear models where this did not happen. You can't tell from a picture on a website if a hook will be thin enough to allow the closet door too close. I'd prefer someone to just tell me what they have that works. Thanks!
  21. Thanks, Arzeena! I will not plan to seek them out next month. I don't want to chase our tail when our time there is brief.
  22. So is it open or not? Their FB page has a picture from June 7th. The address shows as 14 rue de l'anguille. The OP said Marina Port La Royale, Marigot. I'm so confused. LOL
