  1. I surrender. If thats what it takes, i guess i have to join the hordes who save chairs.
  2. My wife and i both chuckled at the title of this thread and had the same question. Why would anyone NOT want to eat in the better restaurant? I know reasonable minds may differ, but we believe Blu to be head and shoulders better than the MDR and can’t imagine switching. YMMV
  3. You aren’t going to like this but... The terms of the cruise contract allow them to change your cabin. In your case, special circumstances dictate they should not. Most of us would be very upset, cabin choice is a big deal! I hope you get a favorable result. To answer your original question, NO, it does not happen often, but it can.
  4. Its sooo variable. I looked at a verandah on Edge just Wednesday morning and it was $1900. I tried to put it on courtesy hold real quick but couldn’t. At lunchtime when i had time to book it the price had DOUBLED to $3900. Yikes!
  5. The IV differs from a traditional verandah or balcony. First of all it can be closed or open like the windows in your car. Sometimes by the ship, sometimes by you. it has been described as an oceanview where you can open the window. The complaints are mostly that if you open the folding door to the verandah, the AC in the cabin is disabled. Also, there are not curtains so if you wake early and go out on the balcony your companion will have the bright light too and cannot sleep in. The only cabins NOT equipped with IV are sunset verandah which are traditional balconies.
  6. I think the focus, is what they are selling: fasionably new. im not buying, at least yet. you can stop some of the tracking by deleting cookies regularly, however if i shop nikon lenses, my wife gets nikon pop ups! Its kind of scary....
  7. The worst is “search engine” guy who asks if you tried the search engine! But seriously i prefer to think people are offering what advice they can, if they don’t know the answer (and in this case it varies) they recommend where you can go to find out. No one on here actually knows their specifics, so you aren’t going to get a direct answer anyway.
  8. Just to chime in, there are aft concierge balconies as well, category C1. You can keep your concierge points that way. I think there are a total of 4 possible aft view cabin categories: sunset verandah, C1 concierge, Suites, and on some ships Family Verandahs. If i missed one, someone is sure to correct me.
  9. It works either way, we usually purchase it before the cruise. It’s best to call rather than order online to get the discount. If you prefer, you can do it onboard by visiting the ilounge, but there is often a line.
  10. And just to chime in, you may be just fine with a one device plan. What it really means is one device at a time. When you are connected and he wants to be, he simply logs in and it disconnects your session. You can then log back in and end his session etc. So, unless you really need two at the same moment, one plan will suffice. We usually do it that way, and if we both just have to be connected simultaneously the second person uses their 90 minutes.
  11. If we had an inside cabin, we wouldn’t spend much time there either, but we LOVE our verandah. We have breakfast there, read there, watch sunrise,sunset, look for flying fish, dolphins, or whales. The sound of the waves against the ship is enchanting like the surf at the beach it’s our favorite place to be, AND can be affordable, on our 13 night cruise a balcony guarantee was the same or less than inside and oceanview.
  12. It is awkward to order them, after you hit the button, the screen goes blank, no confirmation is provided. The luggage tags do eventually show up though, but my comfort level was low.....
  13. No. If you have a very good tour guide,a little something is appropriate.
  14. Anyone have any luck with this? i can see the 3,5,7 bottle package BUT when i try to buy it, it asks me to login and then takes me to the beverage packages, which is NOT what i want.... Any suggestions appreciated
  15. You might like the C1 (concierge) cabins on deck 12, they have more of an overhang. Plus you’re on the same deck as the pool. One downside to ALL the aft cabins is the afternoon sun when sailing east is right in the window and the heat can be brutal.
