  1. Seems just like another "Bait and Switch" or shell game. 😡They give and take away or give and increase the prices.
  2. just a Shell Game they use 60% off second guest -- next week 30% off each all the same Don't like being played.😡
  3. Fantasy?? Most likely all cruises are hopeful planning. This year we "had" an April 2020 on NCL Dawn NYC to Barcelona which was very similar. All of NCL's T/As were multiport with the schedules set years before. Face it RC doesn't do good TAs to Europe ! I would like them to see that.
  4. As an example, look at NCL's Getaway on April 11th 2021 5 sea days 10 ports including an overnight in Lisbon. Trying to get Royal to do better. Remember I'm a stockholder and D+ so want to cruise RC vs NCL !
  5. Come on Royal. Your repositioning cruise itineraries stink. Just checked for 2021. Too few port. Too many sea days. You are making this D+ and stockholder book on NCL.
  6. wait until we start pointing our finger gun and clicking our cheek to say hi!!!! Imagine the horror in our kindergarten classes teachers.
  7. Is anyone else disappointed with Royals Repositioning cruises to Europe. Booked my 2020 repositioning with NCL as they visited many more ports than Royal. 2021 in no better: usually 2 ports of call vs NCL's 5-7. Already ruled out Royal for next year. As a stock holder this needs to be reviewed.
  8. The USPH sets the "Minimum" standards but are they FOLLOWED ? Bleached out??? Didn't say drastically Exceed the standards; just actually followed. I'll take a bleached out swim suit over quarantine. Home pools and spas don't have the numbers of people in them each hour. Maintain the Standards without fail. You never picked up a dirty plate of utensil?
  9. My other question is what are they doing to increase cleaning to prevent illness. We have all seen cleaning staff, not just on ships, going through the motions of wiping the top surfaces of places like handrails. Will they start wiping the underside too? Taking Washy-Washy seriously that little mist is not cutting it, Wiping down the Entire table, especially in the Windjammer? Increase the temperature of their dishwasher? Running the eating utensils Twice?? Increase the chlorine % of the pool and hot tubs? Sanitizing bathrooms/showers? We've all
  10. I get tired of both mailings and email the Offer Wonderful Savings that are neither. They just keep moving the target prices.
  11. Be assured, they will NOT lose money. Just a shell game.
  12. Like the napkin idea !! As I watch the staff " Disinfecting " the handrails, I notice they only wipe the top of the rails while our hands wrap around to the underside. Need to do better. Hope the dishwasher temperature is maxed out, hot tubs have extra chlorine, and cabin stewards are spending a little more time in the rooms(especially on embarkation day).
  13. Excellent review-- lots of work. Hope RCI reads this.
  14. People die on cruise ships. That why they have a morgue, Just think of all the Medical Emergency call you hear each cruise; not to mention the ambulances portside when you dock.
  15. Maybe finding out if they are rotating crew from China and the like without screening.
  16. I agree. Its a waste of time to post "sorry you're not feeling well" or "looking forward to this cruise" or" Hope it works out for you" etc; just to get posting numbers up.
  17. Anyone on or just off the ship that could advise of the officers. Especially the cruise director. thank you
  18. Just advised my T/A to cancel my upcoming Anthem cruise. I'll try another ship or NCL. Maybe to keep your status (at every level) you must cruise at lest 6 days a year (or every 18 months).
  19. The Star had propulsion problems in Jan of 2017. We missed half our ports as it only had One engine. Then it had NONE after leaving Melbourne causing us to be Tugged back. Missed all of NZ. So bad we had Australian News helicopters circling and news crews in ports. Abandon ship
  20. in 2017(?) I was on the disastrous NCL Star debacle where both engine failed. The Brits on board were surprised how little protection {refund} US passengers as opposed to them. Apparently British and maybe EU consumer protections are better.
  21. We were on 33 day cruise from Hong Kong to NZ in Jan 2017 I recall. The STAR missed about Half the ports as it only had one engine(azipod?) working. The issue was not new. We learned it was ongoing back to April the prior year. They offered us $200 per cabin.......what an insult. After almost daily protests in the atrium and Australian TV coverage, they sent the area VP out to cruise with us. The passengers were so angry he left after one day. We did everything but" loot: the ship's store. Videos on U tube. Passengers were on their honeymoons, bucket l
  22. Thought it was just me. 50% off second guest after they raise the prices. Peanut under the shell scam.
