  1. Thank you all, the comments are helpful.
  2. We have booked cabin 2154 on the Reflection for our 50th anniversary in March. Just wondering from those of you who have stayed in this suite how you liked it. Good, bad, and the ugly...would you book it again? What did you like most and least about it? Thanks for your comments.
  3. We, too, always tip extra in person to the cabin steward and our wait team, as well as any very good bartender we've had. We also tip extra to the maitre 'd if he/she did something extra for us. Begging for the ten rating is on every cruise line, though. We have been told in the past by certain crew that if they get a certain number of low ratings and bad comments, they are demoted...have not been able to confirm that, however. The bad comment could be something very minor.
  4. On our Equinox cruise last month we had the card in our cabin we could fill out with feedback. I had waffles one day that couldn't be chewed or cut with a knife and mentioned that along with all the good things they were doing, raving about our cabin steward and a girl at guest services. When we arrived for dinner the maitre d' was waiting at our table with our assistant waiter. He apologized for the waffle and assured me it wouldn't happen again. Later during our meal, another "suit" came to apologize about it and promised it wouldn't happen again. That was about five days into a ten
  5. Yes, I always wear them except on formal nights. If you have a dressy pair, like maybe a satin pair with a jacket, for formal night, that would be perfect!
  6. But if their job performance is falling short, shouldn't their supervisor know? In other jobs you are warned and eventually let go if you don't perform. I do take into account that the kitchen may be the origin of slow service, or that large table with many demands, but it's easy to tell if the waiter or cabin steward is the problem as well. We, too, usually speak with the maitre 'd or guest services and things are corrected then. When this happens my score for the survey also changes for the better. If people don't know what's wrong they can't correct it. I am always honest with
  7. I don't remember, it's been about five years ago. Her filling came out and they replaced it for her. They were talking about it when they got back.
  8. I believe there is also a dentist on board as well. A friend of ours had to see the dentist on a cruise.
  9. We didn't prescan anything for our recent Equinox cruise either, even though my printer has a scanner. I entered passport numbers and credit card info into the on-line pre check-in. At the terminal, like you, they scanned our printed boarding pass, and took our pic (we didn't even go to the counters where the agents are). We sat anywhere we wanted and waited about 30 minutes or so and they took handicapped passengers first, then boarded by loyalty group. They checked everyone and there was a couple in front of us trying to get in with Elites and they made them wait out of line for their g
  10. You better hurry up and get that copyrighted and start making those shirts!
  11. Lol, I was speaking in general, layout, etc. I didn't mean exactly alike.
  12. Recently off the Equinox and I saw all kinds of tees, some offensive (which is subjective and differs from person to person) but most weren't. The best one I saw was a picture of a cruise ship with the slogan, "It's NOT a boat!" I loved that because I want to scream every time I hear someone call it boat!
  13. The Equinox is the same as the Reflection. I'm not sure about the glassblowing, though, don't remember it on Reflection.
  14. The price for each item is listed on the ticket that goes with your bag. Each Elite person in your cabin gets one bag of laundry free, so if two people are in the cabin and both are Elite, then both get a bag free. You have to write "Loyalty" on your ticket. Also, as someone else mentioned, I would not send anything that is really good. They use very hot water and colors do fade. They do not press with the free laundry, so it comes back folded in your bag, but not always wrinkle free.
