  1. Going on our 3rd cruise in the Yacht Club. Have found the service and food in the Yacht Club to be excellent. Have done the Steak House, and Seafood specialty restaurants outside of the Yacht Club and was greatly disappointed. We did the buffet once for snacks and it was fine, and the Pizza Restaurant was great...in the Yacht Club you can order a pizza and your Butler will deliver it to your room.
  2. We ended up booking direct flights on United from Barcelona to Newark for $438...not too bad...but prices into Philly never dropped from the $1800 range.
  3. Crazy Fares to Philadelphia...like over $1800 each. If I fly to Newark NJ...it's $356, and from JFK it's $178........big differences. This is our 3rd time flying back from Barcelona, and never paid more than $450. I had hopes that prices might drop for Philly, but if not I'll book into one of the NY Airports, rent a car and drive home, which is an option. We just got off of a TA on the Royal Princess where we ended up in Brooklyn. We rented a car with AVIS, and it just cost $60 to get home, where we dropped the car locally.
  4. We have a March Cruise which ends up in Barcelona. What is the best time to book your air through AIR2SEA. I noticed that the prices seem to fluctuate often. Should I book now, or wait it out a few months? (Just wondering what your experiences have been) Thanks
  5. We will be doing our 3rd MSC Cruise this coming January. All were out of Miami. 100% fantastic experience. All cabins were in the Yacht Club where everything is first class and is a segregated part of the ship! Private Pool, Private Dinning, with all drinks included in all ship venues. I have heard from other passengers outside of the Yacht Club that they didn't have the same experience. It's an UP charge to get a Yacht Club Cabin, which is limited...but try it...You'll like it.
  6. We will be on this cruise...will be our 6th Transatlantic, and we also did 1 Transpacific. Motion of the ocean is no biggie...lots do to, and like you we love the Oasis Class Ships. Allure is one of our favorites, and this pricing can't be beat. It's always good to bring some extra reading material, and load up some shows from Netflix. We always find something to do, and love hanging out with fellow cruisers.
  7. Do they still offer Bloody Mary's during the Elite Breakfast?
  8. We booked a Holy Land Cruise on the Jewel of the Seas which sails round trip from Rome.....great stops including Jerusalem and Haifa in Israel. Departs 11/5/19.
  9. I'll be on the Edge next month, and will judge the cabin then. As for the video, it looked like a typical sales and marketing commercial. There is no way they will make the cabins and the rest of the ship look like the Edge. On old ship is an old ship, there is only so much they can do, as we have seen many times when they dry dock and upgrade a ship. With that being said, lets see what they produce verses what they market.
  10. Agreed....we only get room service when we have to leave the ship early. We use room service as our wake up call....with a pot of coffee and other varied items.
  11. Great review. We will be on the Seaside next month in the Yacht Club. Last year we really enjoyed the Yacht Club Experience on the Divina so much that while on there we booked the Seaside. It sure does spoil you!!
  12. Was on the Divina last year in the Yacht Club and took along a Sports Jacket. Will be going on the Seaside in November and will not take along a Jacket....so silly to wear a jacket in the Caribbean...I'm on vacation and will dress for comfort.:D:D
  13. I have to agree. MSC is turning a lot of people off with bad phone service. I want to make final payment on a Yacht Club Suite....waited on phone for over a 1/2 hour...then hung up. NOT A HAPPY CUSTOMER.
  14. With 53 cruises under our belts, I"d have to say...I like them all. Going on Celebrity Equinox in a few weeks, then going on MSC Seaside with a Yacht Club Suite in November. I do understand the loyalty thing, as you get more Perks. We are Diamond Plus on Royal, and that means Free Drinks at nightly event for a few hours, free internet time, free Specialty Restaurant, laundry, upgrades...and others. On Celebrity we are Elite, and their Perks are similar but a bit different than Royal. MSC does the status match, and we are Black Card on there. We sailed on MSC last year on the Devina, once again in the Yacht Club and were really WOWed! The MSC Loyalty Program, in my opinion needs to be upgraded. I do love each line....your on vacation...enjoy...but LOYALTY PERKS are a nice thing to have.
  15. We just viewed the movie....I give it a THUMBS DOWN!! Being a guy...maybe it's just a Chick Flick.
