  1. Just off escape today...they “ran out” of paper straws day 2
  2. Yeah...I thought it was a little high too and we did get a great initial rate for current cabin so they are probably trying to make up the money :). We decided just to sit tight with our current upgrade bids and we will be happy either way. Yes the sail away rates must be very tempting for you...enjoy your trip in a few weeks though!!!!
  3. LOL..not hiding anything..it is in my original post...Oct 28th Escape out of NY
  4. Funny..was that a test to see if I would answer you??? I almost did!!!!
  5. Yes, I agree Jamie. Now to decide if the extra 900 bucks is worth it...augh...we had an aft 2 years ago for our honeymoon on the Breakaway....so nice!
  6. Gotcha...TY. There should be several lucky ducks getting afts this cruise then!!!!
  7. Can anyone tell me the bidding range for an aft balcony on Escape Oct 28th? I am in a balcony so I wasn't able to bid on an aft but was given a price of $913.39 to upgrade, wondering how that compares to bidding range. There are several of these left. Thank you!
  8. I agree...it seems relentless...I don't cruise often but happen to be cruising soon and have been on the boards consistently for the past few months and don't care for what is happening. Of course it may be happening on other lines I just don't see it because I am on this board but man it is really putting a bad taste in my mouth.
  9. All the recent increases are getting old.
  10. Shellbelle28..thank you so much for speaking up about the curt response you received earlier in the thread....it's been awhile since on CC and the tone had definitely changed in the last few years...disheartening really.
  11. We have stayed at Hilton Garden and was very pleased with the transfers to and from the ship...however the end of Oct we are going to give Fairfield Inn a try as it is $121 less....will let you know.
  12. VERY NICE!!!! Thank you for sharing!
  13. I have to agree with you....I haven't been on the boards much since my last cruise a few years ago and recently got back on with an upcoming cruise and the vibe here has changed considerably....I am almost afraid to ask a question with fear of the negative outcome...it really is too bad.
  14. Gotcha...have a better understanding now....TY!!!
  15. From what I understand the doors open at 5:30, dinner at 6, show at 7...is it possible to get a seat at 5:30 and return at 7 for the show? We do have reservations. Thanks
  16. I continue to be amazed how unhelpful people's responses can be....either answer the question or move on......no place for soap boxes and GADave makes a good point.....geesh people
  17. Can you add new guests to your room after winning an upgrade bid? And if not, how late in the game can you book a cruise providing rooms are still available? Thank you!
  18. Does anyone know if the bidding inventory changes through the 80 day window? Was hoping to bid on an aft balcony as there are several unsold, but only given haven options and mini suite. Thank you!!
  19. LOL...right with you and not being techno savy. Thank you for response!!
