  2. We have cruised for over 25 years and now have a check list that covers about everything to pack and do before leaving. No matter how many cruises we that there is always something on that list I would have forgot to do or take every time. Some major items, passports, boarding passes, cash, cell phone and charger, for me hearing aid and batteries, believe it or not socks, reading glasses. Things to do at the home before leaving. Once each and every one is checked off. We are ready to go and no need to turn back for forgetting something important.

  5. January to March are usually the best perks offered. Lowest cruise prices start in September.
  6. We always play bingo and purchase the most expensive because it is always the best deal. We do win and we do not. One time that we did win we had six cards and one electronic pad and one free single card. I won on the single card. My wife won the final jackpot once. I see bingo as the only game that I see now way it can be fixed. Fixed to do what? I have seen the big jackpot won and asked after it was over. Bet that does not happen very often. He said it happens every few cruises.. The cost of a Bingo game is way less than the donations at the slots. At least with bingo, it lasts a while. I see those with many cards not win. So, yes you have better odds, the more cards you play. No way does that guarantee a win. What makes me most happy is if I am the only one who got bingo. No splitting the winnings. Those who do not like playing when there are not that many. Check this out. The last bingo on a small ship and the jackpot was $100.00 Why only $100.00? There was my wife and me and one other couple. That was it. Cost $20.00 to play one game. It was cover all. We won. So you never know!
  7. Your list may go on and on but none of them are required to purchase. You certainly have the option of purchasing anything you want or not to purchase. Most of everything you mentioned is not a necessity for most.
  8. Celebrity is the opposite. Odd numbered cabins on the port side.
  9. To each there own. My wife and I are both diamond and really enjoyed the steak dinners twice. The was and fold is great for those real long cruises. The gathering with the officers for only diamond is nice. So I like the perks. Not a big deal but nice.
  10. On our 25th we both were able to get the 25% off of each of our cruise fare added to the OBC. I just called because we will be doing our 50th soon and was told totally different in contrast to their Milestone information which is. Milestone Reward must be redeemed at least 30 days prior to sail date and will be applied to the booking on the week prior to sailing. Only one Milestone Reward is redeemable per guest, per booking; more than one guest per booking may redeem a Milestone Reward I was just told I need to do the Milestone AFTER our 50 cruise is completed. So it will be the 51st. That is not what it says. She also told me we can only do one at a time. Mine of the 51st cruise and my wife on the 52nd cruise. I think that is totally incorrect. From what I read it is like the 25th that we did.
  11. If you already have the highest cat OV booked. It does move you into a balcony room. That is only a one time deal anyhow. The great added perks for being Diamond are nice. Dinner for two at the specialty restaurant. Captains get together just for Diamond. Chocolate covered strawberries on every cruise. Those are expensive. Unlimited wash and fold on every cruise and a lot more. Plus a dedicated diamond number for help. That I have used and they are super nice people. So as I said. The one time upgrade is no big deal. But the other perks are nice.
  12. Same cabin for cabin upgrade. Example OV to OV, let's say you have an ocean view with a port hole up front. You can then get that up graded to an ocean view let's say mid ship which is more expensive or on a higher deck.
  13. I have posted this in other topics. Depending what you like for drinks this is what I do. I also do not drink a lot other than sodas. The soda package is perfect for me. My favorite is Coke Zero. When they announce shooters special which is a great price and they are 2oz shot glasses. I go get my coke and buy a rum shooter. A shooter can be just about any liquor you like. I also enjoy an OJ with gin. OJ is included in the drink package. So doing it that way is very inexpensive even if you pay full price for the 2 oz shooters. If I might want a frozen drink. I will just purchase one. Still the over all cost is really low.
