    Cool Cruiser
  1. I have been wearing a mask at work for over 2 months now so this is not that big of a deal to me. As long as I don't need to wear an N95 or KN95 I am fine with it. My bigger problem with getting back to cruising is the next few cruises I would like to do are in Europe and I will be waiting until the historic sites I want to see are reopened and staying open.
  2. It depends upon the type of sailing. For port intensive cruises or cruises that have very scenic spots to sail in and out of I liked Serenade or Radiance class the best. I especially liked being able to be out on the front of the ship going in and out of Venice. For sailings with more sea days, I like the activities and entertainment on Oasis and Quantum classes.
  3. Well the article is misleading. The actual policy is the blade of the scissors can't be longer than 4 inches. I probably own at least 20 pairs of scissors and maybe one pair has a blade that is longer than 6". Also RC has scrapbooking cruise groups that are their customers. I can guarantee the scrapbook groups would not frequent a cruiseline that has extremely restrictive rules on scissors.
  4. I dress pretty casual during the day in shorts and t shirts for around the ship. In the evening I like dresses but take at least one sweater or wrap for the theaters that can get chilly. One thing I haven't seen mentioned is long pants and socks if you plan to ice skate, and socks and tie shoes if you want to zip line.
  5. On our only cruise in suite we didn't tip the concierge but that was because our friend's genie did everything for us that the concierge was supposed to do. The genie was who got a refund on a dining package refunded to the correct room after the concierge tried and it was refunded incorrectly. The genie also walked the two of us off with our friends so our group wasn't separated getting through customs. We gave the genie the tip that would have gone to the concierge.
  6. Glad to see some are getting the benefit again. Of course to be consistently inconsistent, mine was recently rejected because I had some thing on my booking that was not combinable but they could not tell me what that was. They were kind enough to send me an email for someone I do not know who has had their $200 shareholdler benefit approved. I emailed them back about sending me someone else's response in error but I have not heard anything back regarding my concerns about this misdirected email.
  7. I am having the same issue. I can't find it either even following the above directions. When I was talking with C&A the other day the phone rep couldn't find it for me either. I hope it will show up soon
  8. I will look forward to your review of the Key on Anthem as that is the ship we are going on.
  9. Thanks, I was thinking that the suites concierge might be helpful in getting them a reservation.
  10. Thanks for this information. I wonder if since our friends are in a Suite if they would be able to get reservations more easily, perhaps the concierge would be able to help. Something to consider.
  11. I am considering the Key as we are sailing with friends on Anthem who are in a suite. It seems like the Key gives some similar perks to the Suite. I was wondering if anyone knows if the suite VIP seats are in a similar location for the shows and if the priority embarkation and disembarkation are handled similarly for both Suite guests and The Key. I would like for our friends to feel free to take full advantage of their Suite perks without worrying about leaving us behind. It would also be advantageous for us to be able to disembark together which if we both have priority disembarkation that is done at a similar time and method would be useful. I am also not clear if my husband and I would each get a Voom code or with this since we both have to buy the Key which could be good for us. Does anyone know if our friends would be able to eat boarding day lunch with us even if they don't have the Key and just pay for it separately? I know on Allure prior to this program we all just walked in and had lunch at Giovanni's table together without a problem.
  12. We really enjoyed Baton Rouge Steakhouse.
  13. Venice was very easy to walk off an buy a pass for the vaporetto boats and used them to go everywhere. If you are up for the hike up the city wall, Kotor would be easy to do on your own on foot. Everyplace else we booked private excursions.
