There's always fine print about pricing mistakes with automated systems. I believe both sides can back out within 24-hours anyway.

There isn't any way to guarantee your request will be granted ... right or wrong, I'm guessing that there are too many moving pieces. I'm sure some matire'ds (or whoever) are better at managing this...

Generally when you change occupancy, the cabin gets repriced to the current rate. These "sale" rates and OBC rules are so finicky that it's very hard to know what will happen when you need to make a...

Breakfast is pretty much the same every day. Lunch and dinner rotate options a bit more.

On my last cruise over the holidays, we had something like $800 in OBC per cabin because of TA and RCI perks. We used it for gratuities, a few restaurants, and a few other splurges. We burned...

The TA we use is always able to call C&A and apply the balcony discount when it was applicable. It won't automatically show up in a booking.

We received an email Monday for Oasis sailing next week.

My parents call the Radiance ships the "poop" class because of the plumbing issues we've encountered. Hopefully this is a small hiccup with Jewel.

I had a conversation with my 17-year old niece when she cruised with me. We talked about alcohol and rowdy behavior. I just asked her to remember that just about everything in a public area onboard...

I've run into some worse cancellation terms with some of those types of agents. Other than having to go through that agency and not being able to make payments online through RCI's website, there's...

I seem to remember them on Quantum being on the top floor of the Music Hall. They were also not full-sized.

I've had several BW balconies and don't mind them. You get some noise leakage during shows but otherwise it's not too bad. I like being able to look down and see how busy JR is in the morning for...

I've had one as low as 110% ... you just have to keep looking but unfortunately they are few and far between.

They will have a special meal in the MDR for Christmas. The specialty restaurants will probably also be running special menus for higher prices (wine flights, etc). At least that's what happened on...

I don't know if this is still the case, but in the past if I was "too early" to check at the counter, the skycaps would gladly take my bag outside with a small tip.

I've gone as early as 9:45 off the big ships in FLL ... but I was still nervous enough to carry my own bags off. There should be no issues with that time.

I believe they are slightly bigger ... though I do long for the standard showers on the X's Solstice class. ;)

When there are issues with Oasis-class embarkation/debarkation, they get compounded by the size of the ships. Most of my experiences have been great, but then there was the time it took us an extra...

Another who had a great experience with Alla. There was so much to see that 2-days still felt cramped, but yes, that did include the Hermitage. I guess you'd have to look a their itineraries and...

They do offer more general deals now for nights 1 and 2, but I believe this might be the only way to have BOGO for a single dinner (ie, pay 1 cover for two people).
