  1. I just put a deposit on my cruise for next summer and am now finding out about MSC Status Match Program. Based on what I've read on here, it would appear that I should be able to get a status match to Black so my question is, is it better to do the upgrade now or wait till closer to sailing so I can prolong my 3 year membership or is it based on cruise date rather than status match date? What are the advantages and disadvantages to doing the status match now vs maybe few weeks/month before sailing? I assume my status and benefits can be retroactively applied to the sailing I just booked.
  2. We are trying to decide which to go with for our Mediterranean cruise next summer - the brand new Grandiosa for obviously the newer ship and better amenities or the Divina for the slightly better itinerary and savings of over $400 for our family. We are wondering if going with a newer, bigger ship vs one that's only 7 years older makes that big of a difference and since both itineraries are pretty port intensive (one sea day for both) if we should go with a decision based on the ship or the itinerary (not to mention the additional $$ savings)? Would appreciate any of your feedback! Thanks!
  3. It will eventually transfer over to the app but probably won't happen till 1-2 weeks prior to sailing at the earliest unless they have improved the app feature
  4. 1. Refreshment Package - any "waiting period" between drinks? Is it included for drinks on Labadee? 2. Ice Cream - Are there any complimentary hard pack ice-cream available besides during meals in MDR? If not, when and where is soft serve available till at night? 3. Crepes / High Tea / Free Sea Day Brunch - I'm pretty sure these are non-existent on Allure but wondering if someone can confirm? And advise if ANY of the RCCL ships still offer? 4. Masquerade / Murder Mystery - would love to partake if they still exist! Is this a thing of the past or is it still available on Allure or ANY RCCL ships preferably without additional cost? 5. Shows - are we allowed to leave part way during a show and come back to "finish" the 2nd half on another day? I understand seats may be hard to find but wondering if they even allow people to come in during the middle of a show? Thanks for your input!
  5. What's the best specialty dining offer you have ever had or seen out there? Is it better to book online or onboard?
  6. How about for an inside stateroom - I noticed some of them have beds that are on the side wall while others, the beds are on the back wall directly facing the door - is there a way to guesstimate the location of the bed for an inside stateroom and what the configuration will be?
  7. It appears the latest update only has the first 4 days of my reservations listed on the calendar and still no way to link reservations with guests from other staterooms 😞 We're cruising in 18 days...really hope they get their act together soon!!
  8. Thanks everyone for your input...very helpful! Looks like I need to head to the gym and get myself some upper-body strength and muscles to gear up for this adventure!
  9. Can we link reservations on the app before we get on the ship with this latest update?
  10. Our kids are interested in the Aqua Park at Labadee - anyone care to comment about it? Is it fun? Worth the money? Pros/Cons? How long do they get to play out there before they get kicked out - is it first come, first served? We're wondering if parents are required to go on it with the kids or if they can go on their own (Ages 12+) Does it get overcrowded - is there a better time to go? And last but not least, can we purchase tickets when we get there or will we be at risk of it selling out? Should we hold out for any possible deals for booking last minute??  Appreciate some feedback! Thanks!
  11. Our kids are interested in the Aqua Park - anyone care to comment about it? Is it fun? Pros/Cons? How long do they get to play out there before they get kicked out - is it first come, first served? We're wondering if parents have to go on it as well or if we can just send the kids on their own - Ages 12+ Does it get overcrowded - is there a better time to go? And last but not least, can we purchase tickets when we get there or will we be at risk of it selling out? Should we hold out for any possible promotions for booking last minute?? Appreciate anyone's input! Thanks!
  12. Ahh!! That makes sense! What a bummer! Well maybe they will change their mind once we all get onboard and the restaurants are empty (wishful thinking)...I'd love some BOGO offers to try out some of the restaurants!
  13. Mine is Nov 18 - I only see pricing for each of the restaurants individually but I don't see offerings for any dining packages. Will it still appear before my sailing I wonder?
  14. I don't see any dining packages being offered for my sailing in my Cruise Planner, wondering if I missed the boat? No pun intended haha 🙂 Hoping that they will offer some significant discounts or savings if we buy onboard the ship that we won't be able to resist...have you seen any offers? How much is the package?
