  1. Hi Everyone, We are onboard the Explorer of the seas at the moment. Booked thru a travel agent , it is a popular one ,know I can't name them ,wish I could. We checked with the agent about our onboard credit, assured that it would be on our account once we were onboard,or within the FIRST day or so. We waited and waited, finally went to guest services who suggested we ring our agent. Contacted them to be told that yes they were aware of the problem (There is 4 couples in the same situation as well, that we know of). They aren't able to give us our onboard credit ,whilst we are onboard. But we are required to spend the amount and then forward our account to them to be reimbursed... WHEN we arrive home. I will be ringing in the morning and asking to speak to a supervisor. Refuse to talk to a call centre again. I think being fobbed off when we ask for the obc ,that was part of our booking contract,which should be on our account this cruise,is not a satisfactory solution. Just annoying. Deb (and Bob).
  2. If you are in 2 cabins did both cabins get the offer We are on the NYE cruise of of Brisbane and we got the offer to and we accepted to

  9. Hi everyone, Last year on the Voyager of the Seas, there was a man escorted off the ship in Brisbane by police,believe that he was charged , the previous evening he was caught in the disco, very drunk,pulling girls knickers down and taking inappropriate pic's, he was on the cruise with his wife, he was screaming to everyone going off at the port that he wanted a refund for entire cruise, his wife followed him with luggage. I felt sorry for her.
  10. Hi Everyone, Found a better than normal pricing for a Xmas cruise on Explorer of the Seas, promende cabin, $1972 ,Balcony is $3000.Still expensive but cheap for a Xmas -New Year, 12 days from 22nd of December. Internet travel agent,tips are even included. Cheers Deb
  11. Hi Everyone, I had a guarantee balcony coming up on my Voyagers of the Seas,leaving 19th Feb, I scored a Superior balcony ,deck 8 near the aft ,when they rang to see if I wanted a paid upgrade to a balcony guarantee recently I declined ,I explained that I would be already on board and didn't want to risk a guarantee ,as I am doing 3 consecutive cruises on this ship anyway ,she said she could book me any one of the closet balconies available ,so I was able to book a balcony at the AFT ,(for a grand sum of only $150 extra,-solo cruise) and still keep my OBC bargain ,right on the corner with a wrap around balcony , I had previously had a aft cabin before,so love them . Sometimes a guarantee can be wonderful,sometimes not .But still love the fresh air and the sounds from a balcony . Cheers Deb
  12. Hi Everyone , There is a balcony deal on Voyagers of the sea -27th Feb from Sydney 7 day ,at only $571 each ,inside and outside and balcony all at the same price ,on the RCI site. I am already on this cruise ,so got cheeky :Dand I just rang and they offered me a upgrade to an outside cabin from my inside for nothing ,or a $150 to a balcony ,not bad for a solo cruiser .:D Cheers Deb

  19. Hi Everyone , This is a last ,last minute one ,sail on the 21st of Oct 10-night Thailand, Cambodia & Vietnam Cruise on Legend Of The Seas. You will visit Ko Samui, Bangkok (Laem Chabang), Sihanoukville, Ho Chi Minh (Phu My), Nha Trang, Hue/Danang (Chan May Port) and Hong Kong. Was just checking and discovered this one ,even a single cabin is only $515 ,there is outside cabins twin $424 ,single outside $708 and twin balcony $1099, It is amazing what you ' find when start searching for cruise sales.' Flights would be extra ,but when you consider the cruise price ,would be worth it . Cheers Deb
  20. Hi Everyone , Researching for the 25th November ... I have way to see the 5 ships ,with fantastic views and perspective of Sydney,I have just booked a helicopter flight over the Sydney Harbor for the 25th ,hoping to get heaps of great photos out the windows of all 5 ships. Cheers Deb
  21. Thank you for your replies have talked her into a balcony cabin ,the money saved can be used on board spending instead . Cheers Deb
  22. Thank you for all for your feedback, think a balcony may be the best choice, save the extra for onboard spending instead. Cheers Deb :)
