1. Any other CC members from this Board on 5/7 cruise with us? I started a Roll Call, but no responses.
Not on, but keep in mind that fathom is TINY and CC peeps make up only a small percentage of people on a much larger ship, so for something as niche market as fathom is, odds are a LOT of people will never have heard of this site.
2. Do we pick up pool towels near pool or get in cabin? Sign for these each time we take out?
Both. They have them by the pool, but my cabin had two in there - and my steward would replace one if I used it (even though it was just for sitting on the chairs as I don't do pools.
3. Do we need to make dinner reservations ahead of time for Pacific Grill?
First-come, first-seated. And usually with others. I always got pushback if I said I would rather have my own table (I was solo) and usually ended up at tables where I ended up feeling very uncomfortable because of the conversations. NOT my idea of fun (plus being gluten-free I was super limited because it is so small they don't have the resources other larger ships do...so that didn't help things).
4. Is the room service charge $5 just for breakfast or all the time?
I don't do room service, but I think it's all the time.
5. I don't quite understand the Super Power thing I read about. How does that work?
Not sure which "Super Power thing" you're talking about. The board outside your door is something you can fill out or not (several of us on the cruise that ended today crossed out "Spirit Animal" and wrote "Patronus". :P
There is a "Find Your Super Power" thing you can do on board where about three of the Impact Guides will put you in small groups of 2 or 3 and ask you some questions, then go off and "deliberate" and come back with your Super Power(s) on a little sticker. It's just for fun...but weirdly several of us found that our "determined" Super Powers seemed to gel with our strengths on the Curiosity Test in the Curiosity Advantage workshop.
6. Early morning coffee available in buffet? (I'm usually up at 5AM!)
Not that early usually. But there is a kettle in the room and a box that has tea and Tasters Choice packets. I brought my own Starbucks Via packets (which I used even in the buffet because the free swill was pretty gross iMHO).
