  1. There's a "new" sale that runs from 10/16-10/20. It's called the Seeker Sale. It's 30% off every guest, plus up to $300 instant savings, plus kids sail free on select sailings. As always, end dates are subject to change.
  2. Just off Anthem and was told they are no longer reusable. They must have your current muster station on them.
  3. Just curious if anyone has stayed at the Crowne Plaza Newark Airport? It's in Elizabeth as well.
  4. Ok was just curious as we are booked on a B2B on Feb. As a TA I check prices regularly and I was going to offer to notify you. As as far as June goes...it looks like there are still group rates. Not sure if you booked direct or not, but this could help lower the price a bit.
  5. For Brilliance 9/27/20: I show a 6D Balcony is $2909.54. A guarantee balcony is $2780.54.
  6. As a TA we often have group rates, added amenities, and personalized service...but either way you can still book items through your cruise planner. (Excursions, drink & dining packages, etc.)
  7. You would just want to avoid Miami (and Ft Lauderdale) the first weekend in February because of the Super Bowl.
  8. You should be fine. They all state to book directly but they will apply them either way. If you book onboard they may have you pay the $100 deposit per person then you can get them applied.
  9. It depends on which Harmony Sailing you’re looking at for next February. The 16th Sailing has the Rockin’ The Caribbean group. (50’s, 60’s, & 70’s Music) so prices are a little higher than they normally are.
  10. Are they virtual gift cards? (Long number with a pin?) If so you can have them applied to an existing booking. If you’re wanting to do a new booking you’ll need to pay the deposit first then request the gift cards be applied and you’ll be refunded any excess. An email will need to be sent to shared services and it takes about 10 - 14 days to be applied. I’ve done this for clients a couple of times. If your gift cards do not say “virtual” gift cards then they can be applied by calling. Let me know now if you have any questions.
  11. Thanks for the help. We really loved the promenade room on Explorer so maybe we will book that. Thanks again. You're welcome!!
  12. I'm actually a TA. I see 2 cabins available - 7203 and 7603. Another option is the Central Park view - just 1 available (9179) right now for $2373.06. You should be able to call Royal Caribbean directly.
  13. Would you consider a Promenade View cabin? I'm showing for 3 it's $2313.06.
  14. It looks like there’s still 4 available!! Sure wish we could take advantage of it. 🤔
  15. We are on the 8/29 Anthem Sailing and received the same Royal Up offer. We currently have a D1 Balcony.
  16. I was actually looking at RCCL’s booking engine. I am a Cruise consultant...so couldn’t agree more!!
  17. I did notice that you can get an Ocean View Balcony for a little less than a Boardwalk Balcony. If that interests you!!
  18. Yes it looks like you’d have to book a Category 1I for 4. Category 2I is only a guarantee at this point. It looks like you could get cabins next to each other on Deck 9 (9327 or 9323 & 9325) - If you want to be towards the back.
  19. That's really good to know...in all my cruises I ALWAYS thought you needed a chip to get the machine to work at all. Thank you!
  20. One thing I noticed is you are showing a picture of a Freestyle Machine. In order to use the machine you must have the "special cup" with a chip in it. Otherwise nothing will dispense. You can always take a refillable bottle to a bar or to the water station and fill it. If there's a sign that's posted to not use your own cup, then use theirs and dump the water in your refillable bottle.
  21. Good to know...that was my other question. We’ve only done a B2B on Princess and we just sat in a dining room and they scanned our cards. Once done we were free to go about our day, but we had the same cabin. i wasn’t sure how fast we’d get our new room. We have a deck 12 Ocean View Balcony the first week and then a deck 12 Central Park Balcony the 2nd week. (At least for now - Unless something opens up between now & February)
  22. What happens when you have to switch cabins on a back to back?
  23. I’m hoping they eventually add a Solarium pool. 🤗
  24. I agree with the other responses. The Rockin' the Caribbean cruise group shouldn't cause other shows to be cancelled. There are actually 2 cruises - 2/16 and 2/23 for the same group. We ended up booking the 2/16 cruise, but only because we will be on 2/9 and wanted to do a back to back. You will usually see special events for the group around the ship, but all the regular venues should still be available to those who did not purchase the exclusive package.
