Probably nothing to do with the $30 OBC, but when we prepay our gratuities it shows as onboard credit at 1st, then disappears.

To the original poster: there is a huge (over 900 pgs) thread about service animals & cruising in the "cruising with disabilities section of this board. Don't let the huge legth of that thread...

We are on this cruise with you. There is an active roll call for this cruise. Personally, I am looking forward to those sea days. Since it is a "Journeys" cruise, I have read that there will be...

It's the bottle they are opposed to. I think too many people were smuggling alcohol in those bottles of water & soda. FYI: an 8 pk of bottled water through the cruiseline is only $4.50 if...

I agree with those that say the Dream class is very easy to navigate. She has many features that smaller ships don't have, like the water park area. Dream class is our favorite so far. I found...

We also prefer the coves to any other balconies. Using deck plans, we use the elevators as reference points, to see what is above/below the cove. We always try to be forward of the mid ship...

We love to explore the ship, take naps in the afternoon, watch movies, play games on a tablet.

We always choose the cove balconies on the Dream or Breeze. Love the more private balcony. We also usually try to get close to the elevators. There is no smoking allowed on any balcony, so just...

We almost always have a sit down breakfast in the MDR prior to leaving the ship. As others have said, you do not have to be off the ship as soon as your number is called. I do believe you have to...

We sailed the Splendor out of Miami this past February with a 12:30 return flight out of FLL. There were shuttle services right outside the terminal that got us to FLL with plenty of time to spare. ...

Thanks for the info, we will become Platinum on a cruise out of Long Beach too.

We will turn platinum on our next cruise. We have not made final payment, but as others said it does show priority on our luggage tags.

We are sailing out of Long Beach, flying into LAX. After much research, we decided on airb&b. We will stay in a host's guest room for a fraction of the cost of a hotel. Of course this will not...

We were there with you. The biggest issue on that cruise were the irate passengers. We didn't find the weather as lovely as you remember, but not a bad cruise in our book.

We were on the Splendor in Feb 2017. We had our balcony dividers opened up. We asked our steward 1st, but was told to call guest services so the order could be submitted. I believe our room...

Didn't see it on our last 2 cruises-7 days each. Hope to see it on our 15 day in Dec, love the B & B. There were other good choices... just missed the B & B.

We've sailed Splendor & Legend, & are doing the 15 day to Hawaii in Dec 2017 aboard the Miracle. While I liked the deck plan of the Legend (spirit class) better than the Splendor, I liked the...

We used the HUB app in February while aboard the Splendor. I think they are adding features to the app. The chat feature was convenient to chat with others on the ship with you, & yes it was $5 per...

Thanks for the good remarks on the medical care your daughter received on the ship. It is nice to hear positive stories, hope she is doing well. Another reason we should carry some type of vacation...

We have just gone out to the taxi stand at the port area & taken a taxi tour. It was an inexpensive way to see the island. He took us to some of the same bars as were on the bar hop tour & several...

We have had the opposite of CRocks experience. The bed is never configured the way we have requested through the online check in process. But a quick request to your cabin steward will get your...

This is true, I think the least expensive bottle of wine on the ship will be $26. But most are above $30. So your $15. bottle plus corkage fee is still less expensive than most of the ship's wines.

Agree that the blow dryer is not very good, but have had one in every cruise ship room we've sailed in. Usually in the vanity drawer & cannot be unplugged to move it.

Agree that "downey wrinkle...

Our travel agent gives OBC based on the cruise fare we pay. Last 2 cruised we have gotten a card in our cabin stating that we had been gifted $x amount of credit, but the card did say we were to use...
