  1. In the MDR, usually on the first night they introduce themselves to you, i.e., the waiter/his asst. I guess they don't do that in Luminea?
  2. I asked the Maitre'D in the Solarium Bistro on Odyssey what was the difference between his upcharge of $19.90 for a filet and the filet you get in Chops. He said no difference except the one in Chops cost $50.00
  3. Mykonos has one cruise pier, and when several ships are in port that same day, the first ship scheduled to arrive will get that cruise pier. There's a ferry shuttle from the pier to downtown area of Mykonos for a small fee.
  4. I believe it. That's why they go out of their way to ring up a bottle or two of water when you cash out your vouchers at the end of the evening.
  5. If you are looking at the port side, find the stateroom with the bed by the bath. You can find it by locating the "square" which annotates a stateroom with fold out sofa bed. All those staterooms have bed by the bath. Once you find the bed by the bath, the stateroom to the left will have bed by the balcony and will share the same "alcove" as the staterooms are built in modules of two. Your example of 1283/1285, to find the stateroom with bed by the bath, you count from 1287 (square/bed by bath). Every other stateroom will have bed by bath, so 1283 will have bed by the bath. It will share an alcove with 1285 (bed by the balcony). I assume from your post you are not looking for "connecting" cabins, just alcove sharing. Connecting staterooms will have a line connecting the two. Example: 1251/1253. Those are the only two staterooms in your area that are connecting.
  6. If you book thru Royal, you don't actually have to pay for your air until final payment. I wanted to upgrade once, but couldn't because the flight was not ticketed, i.e. actually paid for. I had to pay for the flight before I could be upgraded.
  7. You should have received $250 since that sailing is 14 nights. I would resubmit and/or call them.
  8. A B2B is considered two cruises, so you would get the shareholder credit according to the length of each one.
  9. We decided to do Cassis on our own from Marseille. Took a taxi to the train station and purchased round trip tickets to Cassis. Once arrived up the hill from Cassis, there was a bus for a couple of Euro to take us down to the port of Cassis. EASY PEASY!!! Not so fast. Getting back was a nightmare. There were no taxis in Cassis to take the 4 of us back up the hill to the train station (about 2 miles). Bus schedule to get up to the train station was sporadic. Finally got a bus to the train station and hopped on the next scheduled train to Marseille. Once we got to Marseille, there were long queues to get a taxi. We would have missed the ship, but the sailing was delayed waiting for a ship's excursion to return. We won't do that again. Rent a car would be the best bet. Taxi to car rental and taxi back to the ship.
  10. As long as they don't exhale, I completely agree. 🤣
  11. Concierge staterooms are larger than the standard ones.
  12. I have a rental car reserved in Le Havre, and the invoice reads "Le Havre Centre/Cruise Term." Anybody rented there lately? Will I be able to pick up at the cruise port, or do I have to get to walk/taxi to their main office on Quai de Southampton?
  13. No, it won't feel like a tunnel. The cabin on the port side is also a connecting stateroom cabin, but it has the bed by the balcony. 9298 has the bed by the bath. Same size stateroom. The only difference with the connecting stateroom is the stateroom door on a non-connecting cabin opens out into the alcove, whereas a connecting stateroom, the stateroom door opens into the stateroom. Sometimes it will conflict with the bathroom door. If that door is left open when someone enters the stateroom, they will clang together.
  14. Yes, the staterooms on the slant/angle have 2-3 times larger balconies than the aft balconies. 1407 has a normal sized balcony with little overhang from the sun/inclement weather. 9298 has 2x larger balcony than 1407. I would go for 9298. Better location on the ship.
  15. Yes, same as taking a picture ahead of time. Just do it when you check in at the pier.
  16. The width of all the stateroom balconies are the same. It's just the depth that vary.
  17. Do they really check your time slot anymore? I can't recall being asked for the past couple of years.
  18. It will affect your view forward since it is on a bump out, but balcony is normal size. Bed is by the balcony.
  19. I think World Class Bar is exempt? What about Martini Bar?
  20. You got that a tad backwards. Square = sofa bed, and triangle = upper berth. Upper berth is flush with the overhead, and located over the sofa.
  21. You each get one bag (30 items).
  22. The shuttle from the ship to the town of Livorno will not take you to the train station. You have to take a taxi from the ship to the train station to catch the train to Florence. Last time in Livorno, several years ago, the taxi to the train station is a fixed price, whether you have 1 or 8 people, so best to get a group and share the fare. Have not overnighted in Livorno, but I would suppose you would need to take a taxi to/from the ship. I'm not sure where the free shuttle drops you off, but I know it's not the train station.
