  1. Are the beds in Millennium veranda cabins (specifically I'm booked in Concierge class, but I assume they are the same in all veranda cabins) able to be split into two twin beds?
  2. Yeah. With multiple versions of drinks packages on the same cruise, it could be real messy.
  3. I don't know about MSC (as some have said here, MSC won't do this), but on Disney Cruiseline, we've asked for and received blank cards to use as extra room keys. They are able to issue cards to staff for entering guest rooms. I don't see why they couldn't issue an extra card to a passenger as well (if they wanted to).
  4. We are often in this situation (on other cruise lines), but we always try to get connecting cabins. That way, we can open one cabin and still access the other through the interior door which we always prop open. If your cabins are not connecting, I would ask for extra room keys, but understand that they may not make that accommodation for you. May be worth asking a supervisor to make a final decision if you don't get the answer you're looking for up front. With drinks packages linked to the card, I'd find it very difficult to decide to swap cards.
  5. Good point. Do they also charge the card when you reach a particular threshold of charges while onboard?
  6. Related to that, our cruise does stop in Colombia. Do you have an idea of how long it typically takes for an American family to clear customs and immigration?
  7. We're sailing the Divina on Dec 30 from Miami (staying in Maimi the night before). I would like to know approximately what to expect from the check-in process. When should we expect the port to open for embarking passengers? We like to show up as soon as we can for check-in. Is there anything in particular we should ask at the check-in desk? Should we try to verify our drinks package upgrade, internet package, or excursions before boarding? We are status-matched to Black card except for my mother-in-law who is Silver, but booked in the same cabin with Black level members. Will we all be given priority boarding privileges? I've heard we might expect boarding to start between 11:30 and 12:00. Is that a fair approximation? When should we expect to gain access to our cabins (two Fantastica balconies on deck 11). I understand we will need to link our credit card to our account after boarding, but that it doesn't have to be done immediately. Is there something that we should consider doing immediately or soon after boarding? When's the best time to book specialty dining, either from the Black card status or additional dinners? Thanks for any input?
