  1. Thank you for sharing these great pictures! My family and I will be sailing on Oasis when she comes to NJ. If possible, can you please post pictures of the new teen club? My DS would greatly appreciate it. Enjoy!
  2. When I was on the Anthem earlier this month, we requested extra padding for the bed. We were pleasantly surprised when we were given a MyPillow topper. It was wonderful!
  3. Yes, it definitely is not a lazy river, but the children love it! My son spent hours in there. That lounge chair in the bottom left with the towel on it is the best spot to watch your children. You can see them in the current and wave pools. Since the current pool is in the kid's Splash Zone, I love it when the "mature" guests get in and complain that the children are splashing and being loud. I politely remind them that it's the kids' area and not theirs.
  4. The sign states it's the minimum shoulder height, not the full height of the child.
  5. The sign states 1.10m or 3ft.-6in. Current Pool Minimum Shoulder Height
  6. Yen is fantastic! She is very well respected with the crew and has a good relationship with them. Yen went above and beyond for us. We were celebrating my son’s birthday and she filled our cabin with balloons, had a pastry chef make a Star Wars cake for him, gave him a bunch of presents of his favorite things. Be sure to fill out the questionnaire. Yen definitely pays attention to it. Enjoy your cruise!
  7. I am MLife Gold due to my C&A status. For my March 2018 cruise, upcoming January 2019 and February 2019 cruises I was able to get the $125 onboard credit for each sailing. I called with my reservation numbers and my MLife and C&A membership numbers. The onboard credit was very quickly added to each cruise planner. For the March cruise, I called two weeks before sailing with no issues. The other two were a couple months out so I could put it towards beverage and dining packages.
  8. We were on the Anthem when my DS had turned 12 a few days before we sailed. I was one of those parents who didn’t allow my 11 year old to sign himself out. I liked knowing exactly where he was. He’s an only child. So, that first time in the teen club was huge. My DS loved it! He went the first night and meet many new friends. It is very important to go the first night. Also, your child goes in alone, no need for a parent to go in and sign them up. Apparently that’s not cool ; ) Be sure he has his sail and sign card. My DS has a phone so he would let me know if he left the teen room and went somewhere else. When they did scavenger hunts he needed to be with another person. We have been on the Anthem several times since then and they do a lot of activities in the Living Room (teen room) and Seaplex. I was surprised how many teens stayed and participated. What ship are you sailing on?
  9. That’s what my DS and his friends do. They tend not to communicate through regular text, but through Snapchat and Instagram.
  10. My DS and I use a clear phone case with a card slot. They are available for most phones on Amazon. Here’s the link to the one we purchased. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B075TTM1LD/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  11. When I called MGM today, I was told they stopped doing status match over the phone and are now doing it by email. The email address is mlifeadjustment@mgmresorts.com. Include your C&A and MLife membership numbers.
  12. Your genie and luggage valet will take you off the ship and hand you off to a porter. Be sure to have a tip ready for both the luggage valet and the porter. It was our understanding that the luggage valet would stay with us through customs, but they can only go out so far. I had that tip already out. We then had to stop, transfer our luggage to the porter, and get out extra tip money. I like to be prepared so I don’t need to get my wallet and take cash out. Especially, since it’s so hectic in the terminal.
  13. I grab a pillow from the rattan loungers and wrap a towel around it. The pillows come in handy while watching the outdoor movies too. :cool:
