  1. They probably hired the same programmers. It also blocks VPNs. App and Tapatalk is broke as well. If it ain't broke don't fix it. As a Director of an IT organization I would never have let this go thru. Always run parallel systems and let the users flush it out as beta testers. Stupidity rules. Go back to something that works.
  2. Hey John,Did you do this thru rose colored glasses? [emoji16][emoji16][emoji16][emoji16][emoji16] I liked the colors..... Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  3. If that happened to me I, even as a Pinnacle, would take a picture of the person with my phone and go directly to the Guest Services Manager and inform them the Concierges are not doing their job and make a formal complaint. Have your friends do the same. They will pull the person aside and give them the riot act and a warning. Multiple occurrances and they will get tossed off the ship. I have personally seen that happen. Complaining on CC does no good but taking formal action does. Concierges work for GSMs. They keep a profile of guests so enough complaints and they could get banned. Being complacent and taking no action gets no where. As stated, write, not email, Bayley and one of his Executive Assistants will contact you via phone. It works as I personally have experience doing this. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  4. I hope you're not referring to my triangle pin and me as I go way above for the crew and make all the flag buttons you see them wearing. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  5. The triangle Pinnacle pin I designed makes a lovely necklace for the ladies so they don't have to wear a magnet on their clothes. My wife's is embellished with Swarovski crystals thanks to a fellow Marine. If I'm aboard, I give these to guests who make Pinnacle on our cruise. I think RCCL should give our a temporary pin as it is an accomplishment to make Pinnacle. See designs above for "awaiting pin" or "Finally" or something to that effect. Maybe Congrats et al. I'll be making the Pineapple Award to give to crew that go over and above. Like Napoleon, a piece of cloth goes a long way, or in this case a pin.
  6. You may want to book a room for the 50th. If you don't go it's only $200 lost. We watched price gouging on 2019 Serenade eastbound TA go crazy to $18k for a balcony. We booked late and got one of the last kinda reasonable rooms. Once people realize its the 50th it will fill up. It's about $2500 for two for a balcony now. We like the balcony much better than JS and have had GS and above to get to Pinnacle but cost per value is not there any more IMO. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  7. Another good looking Marine with long hair? :D Hope you enjoyed the chaos. We're chillin in a VRBO awaiting flight to Barcelona for Costa and Symphony then Serenade. Busy 2 months.
  8. Hey John, Thanks for the hands-on reporting. If I had done buttons and magnets for the cruise I might have done something like this...:D. This is what happens when you have too much time on your hands. Anyone going on the Symphony TA or the following Serenade, I already have done buttons and magnets. The colors print out much better than they display below. If you see me on the ship, just ask. I'm bringing a couple hundred to give out gratis. I'm not doing the nice brass pins because of the snafu on the Mariner. I've made some for the Progressive Trivia and regular Trivia winner buttons as well - so if you want one - get your game up. Lots of sea days.
  9. I would have at least put the ship name, ports, and dates on the magnet....... their design team needs some work.[emoji4] But freebies are just that. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  10. Like the Marine Bear magnet! Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  11. There is an online link to temperatures. Unfortunately at happy hour with no PC that has link shortcut. Google it. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  12. Another thing to investigate is St Brendan Isle to obtain Florida residency. No state income tax. Also a mail drop. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  13. We just got a storage unit directly across from Thrifty car rental at the front gate to Port Everglades. Keep a small roller bag with Caribbean clothes so we can swap after TA and dump jeans. Runs appx $50 monthly. Can get Thrifty shuttle to rentals and cross street, get clothes, and off we go to AirBnB or hotel. Life is great! Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  14. We got a suite on Costa for two at $2800 on the sailing before Symphony'sTA. New ports as well. Includes a drink package. In fact we have been on Costa twice and really like the atmosphere. They are also the only cruise line that gave us a free upgrade from inside to Balcony. We are looking at options since now we're homeless and live on ships and AirBnBs. It is definitely competitive. We'll be looking at MSC as well. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
