  1. Hi, just booked 12512 and 12510 for September 2016 on the Fantasy, does any one have pictures of the balconies. Thanks
  2. Thank you, I can see it there as an option. But I don't see it under my pre-cruise dining selections, all the others are listed seperately but there is no package deal.
  3. I'm on the Radiance, everything but the package is out there. Makes me wonder if they are getting rid of the dining package.
  4. [quote name='lovetotraveltx']Was all set to book Celebrity Millennium Southbound Alaska, June 2015. Then clicked on Royal for the fun of it and saw that Radiance of the Seas does the same trip. It has just been refurbished and has a lot of specialty dining which appeals to my husband and I. Should I consider Royal before I book the Celebrity cruise? What are the pros and cons doing Alaska on RCCL? Thank you![/quote] Radiance is a beautiful ship, We were on her several years ago and loved it. We are taking a B2B to Alaska on her this year.

    Chefs Package

    Thanks I will keep checking. Sent from my C6606 using Forums mobile app
  7. [COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]For my cruise RCCL has already put out on their site to sign up for MTD and the specialty restaurants, but they do not have the Chefs package out there. It is 100 day to my cruise, how long should I wait before I call.[/FONT][/COLOR] [COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana] [/FONT][/COLOR] [COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Thanks[/FONT][/COLOR] [FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3] [/SIZE][/FONT]

    Cruise 'Snobs'

    [quote name='PattyG12']We had the same issues on the Explorer last month. It seemed like the older people (walkers, wheelchairs, hover-rounds) were the rudest of the bunch. They spoke down to us constantly. DH and I are early 50s so we're not young by any means. Also, we tried to be polite ... like we were both raised.[/quote] Had the almost the same issue on another ship. We were waiting in a line for lunch in the WJ and older lady cut in front of me in a hover round, I told her the line started back there. She said very rudely that she was old and hungry, I told her so was everyone else in line and get to the back. Some people behind me high fived me and said good going.
  9. I have a cruise in June and have already paid it off, 1) It is done and over with, no worries about how to get money for the cruise. Some of this I paid with RCCL points 2) I have time to book excursions (pay them off) Most companies want their money right away in full, this is now done. 3) Airfare which wants it money right away in full, this is now done. 4) I already have the douple points on my RCCL card and will used for onboard credit, which I plan on doing in January after my Christmas purchases or as soon as I have enough points to get the amount of credit I want. 5)Now nothing to do until RCCL opens up for dining reservations and other stuff you have to wait until 30-90 out.

    Prepurchasing Photo Package

    [quote name='Truluv']We bought the package of 15 photos. The CD had all of our pictures and a caption that confirmed that we were able to select 15 photos at no charge. They are "locked" by the CD software so they can't be saved or printed. (Each picture also has multiple watermarks on them.) There's a box to check off the ones you want. After you check off "purchase," the software on the disk unlocks them. The photos that were purchased then appear as unlocked on the page of pictures, and you can download them. A message then came up asking if we wish to purchase additional photos. The whole process was pretty easy. I just wish that the locked ones could be enlarged on my monitor to facilitate the selection process. There are several packages available for purchase, including a CD of all pictures taken on your cruise.[/quote] I don't understand what you mean buy purchase. Didn't you already pay for 15 photos. How much were they to purchase and did they charge your credit card. I don't want to pay 199 for the package and then have to pay again for all the photos I want to put on my drive and say send to Walmart to get prints.

    Going to check to see if I can get this on my Nook, Why we get fat by Gary Taubes Only lost 2 pounds since I last posted, I could be positive and say only 38 more to go instead of 40.

    Let's lose weight together for next cruise

    Hi Ladies (and any guys who may be on this thread) I like to join, My cruise is in June 2014, so I have some time, I joined Curves 2 weeks ago. I like to lose a total of 40lb before the cruise. I have just got my second hip replacement and am ready to go. But I'm up there in age and my metabolism is like it is going backwards and I do love my wine. I weigh in at Curves on Saturday so will let you know then. Lisa

    New tipping policy review

    [quote name='blueblock']On my cruise in July, I noticed the same excellent service I have always had.[/quote] Example please on why you think it is so excellent? I'm removing the tip and paying cash, None of anyone's business why. I budgeted 700 in tips for a 14 day cruise, will my service still be excellent.
