  1. I have never been on a chartered cruise, but heard about them. Well I am now on one because a company gave it as a perk and I am so frustrated. I was asked to pick my room and pay the upgrade and that was all. Help! We are diamond+ and wonder if we will get points and benefits for this chartered cruise. I know it is not until December, but I am used to planning etc. Who do I speak with or contact to get any information? Thanks for any info you can give me.
  2. She is on her own then. My bad I guess. Isn't hindsight wonderful? Thanks
  3. This is only her 2nd cruise so I am sure she does not qualify, but thanks for telling me. I will, as Biker19 suggested, call when the price is down lower. The last cruise my husband and I took, the price came down until 3 weeks prior to boarding. We didn't need it but I was watching it to know how to book this one.
  4. We are diamond+ so we don't get the package as the free drinks are adequate. Our daughter is coming on the cruise with us. Has RCI gone back to the old ways and making everyone in the cabin buy a package? I guess I never thought of it before because we didn't need it but now I am having a hard time with this.
  5. You have a great tutorial but I am not too good at downloading the Royal IQ. Please tell me how to get this started and then I can do it. Sorry everyone else who knows how, but I am "older" and into this as a newbee. Loving your review. Thanks for taking the time to do this. Kay
  6. We were recently on Radiance and had the privilege of being D+ after several, many, several cruises meaning it has taken time and on Radiance we were allowed into the lounge for D+ and above. One night we decided to go into the D lounge and were totally interrogated by the concierge. Not only was he doing his job he was totally rude about it. Looking back on it Mr. Bathrobe guy would never have gotten in there. I agree it is not the bar staff problem but if this is a special place for people who have earned it then where is the person in charge. That sure disappoints me. As Asctony said we did earn that right and I was thrilled when I did." How do we know that he was not rude, mean or violent. I don't think we were there so do we know. I love the fact that I am in a D, D+ place that we can have drink and snacks and be able to meet others that have worked hard to become members. I hope I meet some of you there, but if I see bathroom guy I will leave.
  7. It sounds like many have similar problems. A couple of years ago I was going on a cruise with my friends. When we got in the line to board I took my passport out and handed it to the lady and she said this is not you. I had taken my husbands passport. They took me to a room to straighten it out. I was told that if my husband could fax a couple of my birth certificate it would be OK. Of course my birth certificate was in the safety deposit box at the bank. Yes, I did make the cruise by just barley. No way would they take a copy. I definitely open my passport prior to leaving home to make sure I have my own. The whole story is humorous now but it was a nightmare then.
  8. Are these choices 1 per person or just 1 for the cabin. We have 193 points. thanks
  9. Bob I called the other day and I was told that they would give you what you asked for on the last cruise unless you changed it. I asked how do I change it if I don't know what there is to choose from. I asked if they would send me a list so I could choose because I did not want the cheese and fruit I had last time. She said something like they have wine and you know a beach towel and then was silent. I gave up and told her to put down the beach towel. I will see the Loyalty Ambassador when we get on the cruise.
  10. I cannot wait to read your review. It is because of you that we will leave the end of August. When you reviewed the last time I printed out everything and couldn't get enough, but it sure has helped us get the best out of our time in Alaska. I will follow along with your review and hopefully will know that planning through you was the best.
  11. We are D+. It is just $200 for both. We sail the end of August. Just keep hoping. I had about given up when I got the call.
  12. No, I got an email about a month of two ago asking me if I wanted to be put on the list for an upgrade to a JS for $200. I checked yes and thought maybe it would not happen because it has been so long but today I got the call. I don't think they looked at my profile but I had asked there too. they did say if they call and couldn't get the person they would move on to the next person on the list. So glad I was home when they called!
  13. We are doing the land portion first and leaving from Seward. We will also be ready to see what we can see from our balcony. Really excited and like you we will be ready to hit windjammer when it opens.
  14. Thanks for the encouragement. This is actually Radiance in Alaska to Vancouver. We are early risers anyway so it may be just fine. Hope I am not just convincing myself :)
