  1. That is an excellent price for a Drinks Package in Australia. I know what it says, but just check that the grats aren't added when you go to the cart to check out.
  2. Once you redeem, you receive an email with all the details of what to do next. I just email them back and give them my name, C&A number and booking number and ask them to apply the coupon. They usually get back to you within a couple of days. Yes, same points for MyVegas and Konami, so you can only redeem the points once.
  3. We cruise quite a lot and I've applied the 10% discount, a 5% discount, and several different amounts of OBC, since you have to wait so long before you can buy another of the same. All our bookings are through our TA or booked on board and transferred to our TA. When I emailed to add the code the first time, they told me my TA would have to approve the change, so since then I have copied him with the email and he immediately replies that they have his permission. No issues at all. I hope I can start buying OBC or purhaps a cruise soon or I need to find something else to spend my points on as I have 10.9 million at the moment.
  4. You can buy them online but only on selected cruises. I should have worded this better. I was able to buy 1 deluxe and 1 refreshment package online this past weekend for our Spectrum cruises, so they must be updating the website as they add the new ships. I called for the other 3 and didn't have to offer any excuse.
  5. We have been buying 1 deluxe package and 1 refreshment package since the rule was reintroduced and we have never had any issues and I've never been asked a reason other then me telling them I don't drink. I just bought 1 of each (1 D and 1 R) for our 5 upcoming cruises in 2019, over the Black Friday weekend. I was even able to purchase 2 online with no issues, which I had never been able to do before. I called and bought the others over the phone.
  6. We also use those little zip bags/purses for keeping all our different currency in the safe. We may have 5 or 6 different currencies on some of the cruises we do. Each in a envelope or small plastic ziplock then into the zip purse. We have a set of them with about 6 different sizes.
  7. Doesn't Carnival have the new Brisbane port tied up most of the time for their ships? I sure hope there is room for a RCI ship to be home ported there.
