  1. I was writing an article on SeaPass cards for the site, which is how I ended up on this page. I e-mailed Royal to have them verify, and this is what they sent back. There are some on here I didn't know anything about and thought you all might find it interesting also. "Below are the colors for our Sea Pass cards. 1. Royal Caribbean light blue SeaPass card: All non-Suite staterooms 2. Royal Caribbean silver SeaPass card (sometimes looks white or pearlescent): Suites on Freedom, Voyager, Radiance and Vision class ships, as well as Majesty and Empress of the Seas 3. Royal Caribbean gold SeaPass card (sometimes looks yellow): Pinnacle Club 4. Royal Caribbean sky blue SeaPass card: Royal Suite Class Sky Level (Oasis, Quantum and Quantum Ultra class) 5. Royal Caribbean burgundy SeaPass card (sometimes looks black): Royal Suite Class Star Level (Oasis, Quantum and Quantum Ultra class) 6. Royal Caribbean seafoam green SeaPass card: Royal Suite Class Sea Level (Oasis, Quantum and Quantum Ultra class) 7. Royal Caribbean orange SeaPass card: Interporting (when we embark guests in two ports of call during a sailing) 8. Royal Caribbean beige SeaPass Card: Royal Premier (China)"
  2. Just curious: Is the main color of the card blue, purple or gray? I can't really tell, but I like the look of it!
  3. Hi all, I've reached out to Royal's PR department, and this is what they tell me: "The cruise compass you reference below from Harmony of the Seas was actually misprinted – human error. Harmony of the Seas, along with all 6-night or longer itineraries still offer Formal Nights. All itineraries 5-nights or shorter offer a 'Wear Your Best' evening onboard. Here is how we describe this: 'Nighttime’s the right time to wear your best look. That means a step up from your typical dinner wear, and includes collared shirts, dresses, skirts, blouses and pantsuits. Jackets, tuxedos/formal wear sports coats and blazers are also appropriate.'" Hope this helps a little!
  4. Your signature says it all, Love my butler. 🙄 To me, if someone breaks the rules and hangs the decorations, those decorations are fair game. The door belongs to the cruise line, not to the passenger, and technically the cruise line can confiscate just about anything it deems "unsafe" -- power strips, candles, etc. Same concept here.
  5. I think it's delightful. I'd much rather have a fun, upbeat, positive message like this than some stuffy, impersonal bit of corporate speak. It's well-written and creative. Have you seen the letter they wrote during the whole drink package debacle? It was brilliant (and not written by an intern)!
  6. No worries! I've seen it too. Just can't quote it, unfortunately. Have reached out to Disney directly, of course, but waiting on a reply. Thanks for your help, though! 🙂
  7. Thanks, Schmoo here! I did see that above but was trying to track down something more official (like an email or press release).
  8. Hi hurricane18. Would you mind posting the email? We're trying to get the details of the cancellation. Wondering if it will be a sea day or if it's being replaced with another port.
  9. Hi everyone. Cruise Critic's updated story is here: https://www.cruisecritic.com/news/3891/. At the bottom, you'll find Viking's official statement in full, as well as a link to the line's website, which I believe someone already posted. Viking tells us that's where it will put any updates.
  10. Thanks, Eglesbrech. I'm looking into it to see why it happened and whether it can be expected on future sailings or other ships.
  11. Hi there. Are you able to share which sailing this was, specifically?
  12. They do in the US, but they generally aren't used for the face. Also, regarding your other comment, how do you eat cake with a spoon?
  13. I've always wondered why they're rare in Europe. Is this the reason people give? I'm confused why a facecloth is any less hygienic than a towel. What's their logic? I'm also curious how people who don't use washcloths (or flannels or whatever we're calling them) apply soap to their bodies. If it's bar soap, how do they rub it in the right places without the bar getting totally gross, and if it's liquid soap, how do they not waste half of it when it slips through their fingers? Plus, rubbing it on your body with your hands doesn't exfoliate or scrub off dirt the way a cloth does. (Not trying to stir any pots. Just genuinely curious about the mechanics behind this!)
