  1. Really enyoying your review. If you see Mario again please say hello from Gale, Cindy and Mario the Camel. He will understand.
  2. I did the westbound TA on Rhapsody in November. We were in an Ultra Spacious oceanview on deck 3 and we did have a refrigerator. Cabin steward was awesome. Best diamond concierge, Grecia. There were so many diamond and above that on day 3 they gave us all a coffee card good for 2 free speciality coffees per day in the solarium cafe or dining room. Enjoyed the enclosed solarium but it filled up early. Wifi worked great but the entire system was down for 2 days. The card readers in the slot machines didn't work for 6 out of the 14 nights but they did double the amount of points you earned on the days that they were working. I personally wouldn't do another TA on that size ship but if you can deal with disembarking in Tampa (it was horrible) I would choose Rhapsody over Majesty.
  3. Christmas was a little different for us this year. My daughter had to be back in NC for work on the 26th and her boyfriend was going to his family's house in Orlando so we celebrated on the 23rd (filet mignon for dinner). As a surprise to her I got a ticket on the same flight as her. We flew to NC on the 24th. Since it was only the 2 of us we decided a movie and Chinese food would be our Christmas day activities. The movie went off without a hitch. Then it came time to order the Chinese take-out. We tried 3 places and they were all so busy that none onf them answered their phones. We wound up with Big Mac meals for Christmas dinner. It's not what you eat but who you spend your time with that matters.
  4. I was on Majesty in October. No diamond lounge. They used a portion of the Viking Crown lounge each night for the diamond happy hour.
  5. I have been using the set sail pass on the app for all ships that are available without printing a paper copy. Did need paper one for Rhapsody TA last month from Barcelona because Rhapsody is not on the app.
  6. On Majesty last week it was $54.99. In the duty free shop in the port in Cozumel it was $50.
  7. Satisfy my curiosity please. Why do you need to send the pdf out to be printed and have to pay for it when any printer will print them in black and white or color???
  8. I live west out by the everglades half way between PE and POM. PE is a no brainer, I 595 and in 20 minutes and I'm there. If I have to go to POM I will go out of my way and pay the tolls just to avoid driving on I 95. It doesn't matter what day of the week or what time of the day.
  9. Loving your review. Two quick things. You definitely can bring your own hair dryer. I do it on every cruise. To avoid the lost luggage tag problem amazon sells plastic luggage tag holders. They have different sizes depending on what cruise line you are sailing on.
  10. This is from another thread. Club Royale revealed: How points are calculated you are supposed to earn 1 point for every $5 spent on slots. When it comes to craps, you are supposed to get 1 point for every 10 minutes you are gambling for each $5 wagered as your average bet.
  11. It takes $5 to earn 1 point so for example 20 people x $21 = $420 / $5 per point = 84 points. It takes 400 points just to get $100 off a future cruise. Obviously the more people the more points.
  12. Oh good, have one more comp cruise to book in the next few days. Just have to decide which one.
  13. I just tried the casino number. All I got was a fast busy signal.
  14. My adult daughter and I did this class on Majesty about 2 years ago. She absolutely hates shrimp. When we arrived for the class we asked the chef if they could substitute something for the shirmp and they happily brought out sliced chicken breast. Our class was at dinner time and we couldn't eat it all. They gave us take out containers for what was left over. When we got in the elevator there were 2 college football players that my daughter knew. We happily gave them our leftovers when they asked where we got the sushi since we knew we wouldn't finish it. It was gone before the elevator doors opened again!!!!
  15. Really enjoying your review. I got off Allure the day you boarded. The reason you ported at Coxen Hole in Roatan is because Mahogany Bay was built and owned by Carnival Corporation for use by their brands, Carnival, Princess, etc., not because Allure is too big.
  16. I'm not sure about grand suites and above but all other cabins are available at the same time, usually 1 PM.
  17. I was there in June..Navigator and Majesty on the same day. No problem at all and we were second to arrive.
  18. Loving your review. Did a back to back in June on Navigator. I was solo in a virtual balcony cabin on the 4 night portion. Just so you know in case there is a next time, the virtual balcony does turn off. There should be 2 remotes in the room. One for the tv and one for the balcony.
  19. Thanks for the review. I leave on Sunday. Do you happen to know the table minimums for Ultimate Texas Holdem and 3 Card Poker?
  20. She “doesn’t want to take advantage of my generosity” as this is the 4th casino comped cruise I’ve taken her on. I think I finally got it through her thick head that I wouldn’t offer if I felt she were taking advantage. I never use all my free WiFi time. It took me 25+ years to get her to go. It has only been since her husband passed away several years ago that she finally starting to do things for herself. I really enjoy cruising with her (except for the snoring) and it is much more fun than going solo which I do often.
  21. Thanks, my friend doesn't want to share my 2 free diamond+ days. Once again she has lost her mind.
  22. Can you buy wifi for just one day?
  23. We have one booked every day at the same time on the Rhapsody TA in November to meet for games. LCR, Mexican train, ect. All on our roll call are just welcome to show up. No charge for use of the room.
  24. There is no diamond lounge on Majesty. They used one of the other lounges for evening happy hour.
  25. I just had a very good experience with Air2Sea. Back in February when I was booking my flight to Barcelona for this November's TA on Rhapsody my husband decided he wanted to go to Barcelona for a week even thought he wasn't going on the cruise. I was able to book him on the same flight as me directly through the airline and a return on the day the cruise leaves. The other day I got a notice from the airline that our flight to Madrid had a time change and we would no longer make our connection to Barcelona. I called the airline and changed the connection to the next available flight for him. Then I had to call Air2Sea and change my connecting flight. Once they verified that the connection time was too short they asked what flight I wanted. I gave them the new flight number and less than 5 minutes later I had an email conformation of the new flight. There were no charges for the changes since the airline changed the time of the first flight.
