  1. He won it at Twin River in Rhode Island. He used to get tons of freebies from Encore, including free rooms, free shirts and logo jackets, free appliances and much more. Since they reopened, he hasn't received a thing. Oh well.
  2. Don't laminate it. If you want to carry it with you, just put it in a small plastic sleeve/pouch with a seal (similar or same thing they sell jewelry items in and they come in different sizes). You can even get a clear badge sleeve with a seal. Both I mentioned are sold on Amazon.
  3. Hubby won a free cruise certificate from local casino (not really free because you need to still pay the taxes/fees/gratuities, etc...plus we upgraded to a balcony cabin, but in long run, we still saved about $2K). We chose the Pearl - Boston to Bermuda cruise sailing out May 20, 2022 (we live 15 minutes from the pier) Some questions: How is the Pearl? I know it is an older ship and it is scheduled for a refurb this fall. How is cruising to Bermuda? Rough seas in May? Should I get a water package? Or just use the water from the dispensers? Any tips/info about the Pearl would be appreciated! Thanks!
  4. Having the table removed would be perfect solution. The power chair would easily fit in that corner. thanks!
  5. In looking at your pictures, it looks like there is enough space in the oceanview setup. The wheelchair seat comes off, and we could easily roll the base either under the bed or table or desk and the seat folds up and could go anywhere else such as in the closet or also under the bed. Thanks for sharing those pics.
  6. Thanks for the tips everyone. I should have also included this question: do any of these cabin configurations have the sofa first w/bed by the balcony door upon entering the cabin vs. the bed first and then the sofa by the balcony door. We have a power wheelchair. It really does not take up that much space in comparison to a scooter. We have often booked standard cabins and scooters have been no issue as long as the bed is by the sliding balcony door. Does the Gem have any configurations on Deck 5 where sofa/desk is first upon entering the room?
  7. Hi...looking for cabin recommendations for the Gem on deck 5 for Ocean View with picture window. Cabins are either under the French restaurant or under the bars. Want to know which one might be quieter. I am thinking under the French restaurant which would have limited hours (for dinner) vs. the bars (all day). Thanks,
  8. Looking at Gem on deck 5 for an ocean view with window (not porthole). What cabin numbers would you recommend as far as noise level from deck 6 above. Is it best to be under LeBistro (port side) or the bars (starboard side)? What is the difference between the Family Ocean View with picture window vs. regular ocean view with picture window? Is the cabin the same size but family has more beds? Thanks
