  1. The CDC would lock everyone in their home for the foreseeable future if they had their way.
  2. At this point all I want to do is actually sail on one of my booked cruises.... is that too much to ask?
  3. Cruising has changed and in so many ways is less expensive than it was. I like the option of spending my money as I choose. I like the entertainment RCI provides and use my extra money to buy dining packages to switch things up. I like not eating all of my meals in either the buffet or main dining room but that’s me.
  4. Count me in on the $20. It’s exactly what I do. Just be aware, if you buy online in advance, they don’t add an 18% tip but they will add it if you buy onboard.
  5. I think you will definitely see a big push towards the larger ships going forward. They bring in a premium cruise fare and can sail at a much lower capacity and still make money. That will be key to getting back to profitable.
  6. Jr. Suites tend to be mid ship. I wouldn’t worry about a bad location too much.
  7. Can you lift and shift a December cruise to a holiday cruise 2021?
  8. I’m curious why people say UDP is too much food. I tend to order similar to what I would in the main dining room in the past. Appetizer, entree and dessert. Do people really feel the need to order multiple apps, Salad, soup, etc?
  9. I feel pretty confident that amping won’t happen but I’ve been wrong before. I’m okay with it although I know the kids will miss the slides. I’m just happy my Diamond lounge should stay in its prime location.
  10. I purchased the unlimited dining package for my next cruise. What did you like best about having it? Did anyone have any issues with using it?
  11. Leave the number at one. Increasing the number actually is booking multiple cabanas. You only book for one person.
  12. Book Harmony. The kids will love it. You won’t be disappointed
  13. I used to swell on every cruise as well until I started buying the drink package and switched to bottled water. They use a desalination process to filter the water. Believe me or not, but I noticed a huge difference when I switched.
  14. It depends on how things are selling on a particular ship. Oasis class ships tend to pay a premium though.
  15. Nothing as long as it's before final payment.
  16. The UDP includes lunch and dinners. Most specialty restaurants are open on seas days only. I think it's a great addition.
  17. Per delivery. Order as much as you want for that service charge.
  18. Your cabana attendant will bring you drinks. With your package you will not be charged, and without a package you can pay as you go.
  19. I can't seem to find any photos for the thrill park cabanas with the exception of the stock ones from the cruise line. Can someone post pictures that are closer up and as well as the actual view. I know they aren't exactly private or luxurious but would like more information before booking. Thanks.
  20. This is actually where the cruise lines make a profit. My understanding is the cruise fare doesn't really make the company break even. It's the extras that do it, which is why you can see some great "deals" half way though a cruise on dining and drink packages if the cruise is down on revenue.
  21. What about a new husband that has never cruised before. I was married for 25 years and lost my husband. I am getting remarried and my new guy is brand new to cruising. I would hate to not be able to share time in the lounges with him, as I have done with my husband in the past.I know people don't technically get any status until after their first cruise.
  22. Do you need to make reservations for the shows with reserved seating?
