  1. Hi all. Looking over my set sail pass for my cruise on symphony next week and noticed something I never before. Below my name on the set sail pass it has my crown and anchor level of emerald and next to that it says 'choice'. Looking at my wife's set sail it just has her crown and anchor status of emerald and nothing else. Any idea why mine has "choice"?

    Package is great covers almost every drink other than really high end 15 year or older scotch , even includes 18 year old chevis regal. We pay extra for some of the better wines and once in a while 21 year old scotch like blue.


    Since I'm not a scotch drinker (at least not yet lol) do you drink it just straight? 

  3. Heading on symphony next weekend and wanting to try some new drinks with the drink package! Outside of the usual Miami vice etc, what are some go to drinks? I'm wanting to try some scotch and others like that, but what's the best mixers to try? Jack and coke has been my go to. The drink menu at Boleros looks interesting. 


    Looking for lots of ideas! 

  4. Thanks! As per usual, the Royal Caribbean worker on the phone said I couldn't get it back in any way and of course when I mentioned going to the casino he changed his answer. It amazes me how big of a company Royal Caribbean is and how clueless most of their workers are on common items 

  5. Hi. I purchased obc for our upcoming cruise with some reward gift cards I had gotten from Amex. If I don't use all of it by the end of the cruise, am I able to go cash it out at the end of the cruise? If that doesn't work, I could technically just go to the casino and cash it out and pay the percent fee right??

    Thanks for the update.  Could you use the gift card to still purchase OBC and then use that on-board to pay your gratuities (which will be around $200 for 2 people) leaving about $50 to spend on board.

    Yes that part I can do. One would think in this day and age they could split payments but what do I know 🤣

    If it does not work to use the gift card for a partial package purchase, you can always use it to buy on board credit.

    Ah Bob you are a genius as always! I never even thought of that. And if I remember, if I purchase obc it'll show up in my cruise planner and I can use it towards the package now too

  8. I want to buy a drink package for 2. I want to split the payment and use two cards but I'm not sure I can. Online it won't let me. I called and was told they could pay for one package on one card and the other package on another card but would have to pay for each one in full. Any idea if I can do different?? I have a American express $250 gift card that I wanted to use towards it. Thoughts?? 

  9. Hi all. We've been to st Thomas a number of times. We'll be there again in March on symphony and looking to do something different. We've been to Megan's bay many times. We've also done a city tour. What else could we do? We like to be adventurous as we're still young! Thoughts?
