  1. Barrheadlass - I leave for this trip with OAT in three weeks! Doing the Jordan pre-trip as well. I will be sure to let you know how it went! This will be my first trip with OAT so I am interested to see how they do things.
  2. Thanks for the heads up! I have both the Hilton and the Delta and it was available for the Hilton so perfect timing as I am getting ready to book a January 2021 birthday cruise!
  3. The Rhapsody out of Venice to this day remains my family's favorite cruise! Suprisingly Katakolon was our favorite port, then Ephesus (Royal doesn't stop there anymore), then Dubrovnik. The ones I thought would be my favorite were nice, but those three ports blew me away. I reviewed it: https://soccermomtravels.com/2016/08/22/cruising-venice-the-greek-isles-and-the-eastern-mediterranean/ It is in like 10 parts so feel free to skip the boring parts!!
  4. Funny! I am doing Egypt in September and China next year!
  5. This is what I do as well. Works great and super small to fit in luggage.
  6. I am waiting for January 2022...It will be my 50th birthday and I really want to jump on a yacht club cabin as soon as they come out. I really hope that they do the same itineraries as they have listed for January 2021 for the Divina. I would love to do one of the January T/A's for my birthday. How vigilant on release date checking do I have to be to get a YC for one of those? Anyone know of any good tracking methods??
  7. Holy Smokes! Thanks for the heads up! One month to earn 350 points so I can redeem 5000.
  8. Did a 14 day Journeys cruise in September. It was 2 bottles per cabin. No exceptions for the longer cruise.
  9. Yes, you are correct. Panorama dining should be available starting August 1.
  10. Yes, you do. All of the specialty restaurants can be booked online.
  11. According to "them" specialty dining reservations for Dec/Jan cruises will open August 1
  12. I did nearly the exact same thing last year for my son's 21st on the Conquest. His birthday is in late December so we all got the NYE cruise benefit as well, but we had a blast...even the 16 year old! And everyone was back in time for the new semester to start.
  13. Some of the quizzes you are able to take daily, some monthly, some yearly, and some only once. They do not add new quizzes very often so if you are through all of the yearly and one time only quizzes it gets harder to earn points quickly. There are promo codes with some emails a couple of times a week and the weekly news quiz.
  14. Boy! I am WAY down the totem pole! I have H19BALL12 - Casino Discount I did not really gamble at all on my last cruise as it was a "Mom & Me" cruise with my teenage son, and I have already booked my free cruise under the April offers so we will see if I still get as many moving forward. I'm pretty happy to just be on a cruise so everything else is a bonus!
