  1. Ours just body slam the bedroom door at 5 AM. 😻🙀😹
  2. Ken, thanks for taking the time to explain those room categories. 😀 Also, thank you for being so generous with your time answering all of our questions about Lift & Shift, CWC, and all the other questions we seem to come up with. I really appreciate all you do, and I know that a lot of people here do as well.
  3. Fiona, the 1I is actually a new category I had never seen before. The other two categories that have been there over the five years I’ve been booking Oasis class ships are 2I and 4I. This 1I category is a new one to me. Our old cabin, 10329, is the farthest aft Boardwalk Balcony cabin on the port side of the ship, and is still showing as 2I. Cabin 10729, the farthest aft Boardwalk Balcony on the starboard side. The only difference I can think of between these two cabins may be capacity. 10729 has a sofa bed, 10329 does not. I think I’d really better get myself busy doing something other than obsessing about cruise cabin categories! 😂. I have a long “to do” list for this lockdown time, and I haven’t made anywhere the progress on that list as I’d hoped I would have made by now! 😱 Some progress, yes, but it certainly could be better. 🏖
  4. I did a L & S on our October 2020 cruise Sunday after failing to accomplish that goal during a 90+ minute call on Saturday. Got the right people on Sunday, but the one question that I forgot to ask the rep from my TA about was the Drink, Dine, Discover cancellation fiasco. We had opted at the time to retain the Drink, Dine Discover benefits instead of the $50 OBC they offered as default at the time. I do have an email confirmation that I opted to be grandfathered into Drink, Dine, Discover, but by the time I remembered to ask my TA rep at the end of the call, he said the office was already closed. I didn’t think we would do very well with the after hours line - didn’t work out very well for me on Saturday, so I’m going to try again one day this week when I have some time. I’ll let you know what happens. Our L & S moved us from Harmony to Allure, since Harmony will not be back to Port Canaveral until after our L&S window expired. I did mock bookings online before I called, and noticed a new category for Boardwalk Balcony categories on Harmony, but not on Allure. We were in 10329 oh Harmony. I noticed that 10729 and one other cabin about two thirds of the way forward on the Boardwalk were now showing as category 1I, not 2I as it was when I booked. I thought I might have a problem switching to the same cabin since mine was now a different category. I was pleasantly surprised that I did not get any pushback on the cabin switch. We are in 10329 on Allure. Oh, besides switching the cabin category on Harmony, they also bumped the price up by about $433 IIRC. Big difference for a cabin that is marked as obstructed due to the lovely purple slides! 😱 I did manage to L&S an Eastern Caribbean to a Western with only minor objections. Both itineraries do stop at Coco, Cay, so that may have helped. However, my old itinerary had three ports, the new one has four, with only Coco Cay in common. No issues at all about that. I did have extra taxes and fees added to my total amount, but with an extra port that wasn’t surprising. EDIT: Interesting, I just went back and did a dummy booking on our Lifted & Shifted Harmony Cruise. My old cabin, 10329 was still listed as a 2I category. The cabins showing as 1I are 10705 and 10729. Those two cabins are now priced plus $570 over my old cabin 10329! All the Boardwalk Balcony cabins went up about $200 since I last looked at about 5:30 PM Sunday evening.
  5. Thank you very much @Ourusualbeach for taking the time to provide the information on the changes to CWC and Lift & Switch, and for answering so many of our questions. Now all that DH and I have to decide what option we want to take, keep our cruise as is, L & S it, or CWC. It will be a difficult decision, but at least it helps to understand our options. Thanks again for your help.
  6. Thanks for the heads up. I’ll be sure not to push that button.
  7. Thanks @taglovestocruise for asking the question I was just about to ask, and thanks, @Ourusualbeach, for your quick answer. I’m wanting to get rid of the Big Box TA that I have no idea why I used for our current booking. If we decide to make a change, as much as I’d like the price protection, I guess our best option will be to cancel using CWC, take the FCC, and start fresh with a new booking. As much as I really want to cruise this October, we’re going to have to give this some thought.
  8. 14th birthday song "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)" by the Four Tops. I just missed “Satisfaction” by The Rolling Stones by days! DH was “ The Battle Of New Orleans” by Johnny Horton.
  9. Thank you. He is very well fed, for sure! Also very handsome and very sweet. 😻 He has a twin sister who helps leave cat fur and footprints everywhere, so double trouble. Good thing I think they’re cute!
  10. This reminds me of getting an FCC for your cancelled cruise 🚢 knowing full well you’ll never be able to use it.
  11. Cat laying on top of my car? Happens all the time at our house! 😂🤣😹
