  1. Sounds like not enough people buying on board. I can see the benefits to logging in after the cruise. Once you are home, have some time and are missing the on-board experience.
  2. I can’t answer the straw question. But there are a variety of cup designs. We are a family of three and have always been given a different design for each person.
  3. Our experience so far is that it is easy to book dining in the ship (if you have done a package) - the only one that fills up is the teppanyaki at Izumi as it has limited seating
  4. I’m not sure where the OP is coming from, but if at all possible spend time in Florence before or after your cruise. We did a Harmony cruise in 2016 and because of the cost of airfare (from Canada) we wanted to make it worthwhile, so we spent a few days in Each of Venice and Florence before the cruise. This allowed us the most spectacular day in Cinque Terre. I am so glad we did it this way as we were able to really get to see lots of Florence and then our day in Cinque Terre was a huge highlight for us.
  5. Love the cups. I am particularly proud of my Harmony Inaugural Season cup. I use it often - especially filled with adult beverages at my son’s baseball games😬
  6. If you ever can get back into your reservation, just buy the package. If the price goes down, you can always cancel and repurchase at the lower price. I admire your mellow attitude about all this - dealing with RC customer service shore side is very frustrating.
  7. That's probably right. I thought I read somewhere that they did that, but I can why they wouldn't!
  8. I may be wrong, but I had thought that you could by it past the first day, and all drinks purchased beforehand were converted to the beverage package. We have bought the package for the past two cruises ahead of time, so I admit that I am not up on the latest rules and regs.
  9. I have found if you are not logged in - it’s gone! Go John! You can do this!! And if it gets desperate some of these count for 2 to 3 reasons (such as the views).
  10. April 2003 - Legend if the Seas from Honolulu around the Hawaiian Islands and up to Ensenada Mexico. I can still remember seeing the ship for the first time and being surprised how massive it was! Then in 2012 we were on Splendour out of Venice and it looked tiny compared to some of the massive ships in port that day!
  11. We tried it out on Harmony. It was fun. But agree, not a place you are going to hang out much. But, some people love it. My kid enjoys creating his own virgin cocktails. Given that it's been around for a few years now, and they did put it on SOTS, I doubt its going anywhere, but for those that don't enjoy it, there are lots of other choices.
  12. We have done two Mediterranean cruises - one with and one without the beverage package. They are port intensive days if you plan to tour a lot so you probably don’t need to purchase the deluxe - though it does include bottled water, fresh OJ, coffees (not Starbucks). If you can find a post showing the price of drinks onboard you can easily do the math to see if it is worthwhile. I like having things prepaid and not having any surprises, so for me it is worth buying.
  13. A few years ago we were on a cruise from Venice, and arrived at the port around 1pm. It was absolutely jammed. It took us 45 minutes to check in and board. I'm not sure why, it may have been all of the people flying in the day of. In any event, I just wanted to say that it isn't always empty at 1pm, and may be port dependent.
