We were repeatedly woken by neighbours having long, loud discussions in the early hours of the morning. We banged on the wall a couple of times....it made no difference. Every morning when we went to...

As soon as you board, contact Chops and Giovanni's and make your reservations of choice. Make it a priority as the time slots fill quickly.

We enquired about the discount on board the Freedom in December. They denied there even was one. We asked them to check again, same answer. They printed out our Diamond benefits and there was no...

If I recall correctly that comment was in relation to the small size of some lounges in relation to the number of D & D+ on ships. He said they were aware that the lounges were, in most cases not big...

He was quite clear that Diamond members would not lose lounge access. He's going to look really stupid if he goes back on that.

We were on the Harmony 2 weeks ago. At the top tier event was a Q&A session with Michael Bayley, who joined the ship in Jamaica.

A diamond member asked him specifically about plans to stop them...

The Brilliance. Amazing crew & such a happy atmosphere. The food was dire, but it really didn't matter as we were having an absolute blast.

We left the Freedom this past Saturday. We both found the cruise very underwhelming. That said, the food was really good and we had no complaints with that. The bed was comfy too.

We were on the Transatlantic on the Brilliance last month. We completely agree about the food in the MDR. It was a great cruise, we had a wonderful time....but the food was terrible.

The speaker in our cabin was off. Unfortunately, we had one of the hallway speakers directly outside our door, which caused the problem. A couple of cabins either way would have lessened the volume. ...

He went on.... and on....and on. His morning announcements lasted for about 15 minutes, by the time he had finished reading his never ending birthdays list. The guy drove us nuts, to the point if we...

We have sailed the Vision twice and it is one of our favourite ships.

We had ample storage for the 2 of us (we don't travel light), but no fridge. We really like the service & food on the Vision...

Picked up 2 replenish drinks packages for our December sailing on freedom at under £14 per day each.

My DH loves rum baba. On the Navigator last Nov, the staff in chops got him 2 from the mdr for his dessert as they were on the menu that evening.

A cruise is guaranteed to cheer anyone up! I thought I'd mention the fact RCI are making it as clear as mud which ships qualify for the offer, as our friend was all excited at the prospect of $1200...

The T&C's say otherwise I am afraid, (SY is Symphony). The promotion seems to be available until you click on the T&C's it then gives the exclusions. I've copied and pasted the first part of T&C's &...

It depends on which cruise you have booked. Certain ships and all 2018 transatlantics are excluded from the offer, some friends of ours only realised by reading the T&C's just before booking, that it...

Drew & my DH are friends. Drew told him that the main reason he was moving from the Oasis was because he missed the guest interaction. No welcome aboard shows etc. His job was basically staff...

We got an email last September, when they did away with the select package, telling us we could upgrade for $10 per day + grats. The cruise it pertains to is not until this Nov, it has the booking...

I have absolutely NO faith in them to do what is right morally. They are running a business & are governed by the law. Unfortunately, the law says they have do precisely nothing...and that, I...

I don't like to be a naysayer, but why on earth would anyone have booked flights for this cruise, when it was obvious there was some sort of issue? We deliberately held off to see how this panned out...

I suspect the only reason I have my email is the fact I contacted Michael Bayley for answers.

I'm sorry, I was attempting to reply to a post that seems to have vanished...my excuse is that I was ironing at the time & can clearly not multi task! :)

Not exactly. The fees and taxes are more for the Navigator & The Serenade. The only protected part is the actually fare before those charges are added.
