We did express walk of this morning from Allure of the seas. We had a great cruise just putting that out there. We just realized after getting home that we left out Samsung tablet on the sofa in our cabin. The case is very similar in color to the sofa so that might explain why it was overlooked. We called Royal and they acted like there is not much hope of getting it back and told us to wait for few days to see if it shows up. You would think they would be able to just call the ship!

 

Is there a number I can call the ship and get a hold of a crew member on the ship ?

 

Does anyone have any advice or have been in a similar situation? It would be greatly appreciated. This was our 58th cruise so just goes to show there is a first time for everything.

Only number I know: Lost and Found: (800) 256-6649.

 

EDIT: Also try sending an email to the Concierge.

Good Luck. RCCL is not known for a good track record on lost and found. Hopefully with something expensive like that the employees on the ship will make an effort to get it back to you. Generally that would be the exception not the rule:(

Depends on whats on it and how important it is. I was curious if any photos etc on it might be priceless

it shouldnt be priceless, when you make this mistake you just move on and learn the lesson always triple check electronics are packed and all items before leaving.

Hello Cruise1814, I know how you feel. Exactly! Only I had a bit better luck, in that I remembered it just as we were getting a taxi to leave the pier.

 

We cruised the Allure last November and I left my Galaxy S10 on the sofa in our cabin. I had to look in my carry-on bag for something, just before we left the cabin. We'd already given the room a thorough going over, before then. I don't know how I missed it, as we walked out, but I did. Then just as we were waiting in the taxi line, I went in the carry-on again, and realized the tablet wasn't there. I was fit to be tied. Practically crying, because, they wouldn't let me go back to look for it. They just handed me the lost and found phone number and wanted me to leave. I said no. I had to speak to someone official. Especially since it was a weekend, and the lost and found wasn't even open. I stood next to the Royal Caribbean worker, who stands at the podium by the exit, and begged him to call the desk. I refused to leave. Stayed right by his side, being as in the way as I could be, and tried to call the ship desk from my phone. I called Royal Caribbean and I called Crown and Anchor society. I asked for every supervisor I could encounter. I called anyone who would answer the phone. And begged.

 

I sent my family on to the airport, and told hubby, I was standing right there till that ship sailed again. He'd could pick me up at our home airport the next day. And I pestered that worker to call his supervisor over, and over. And then I cried, for real.

 

I don't know which call or which person, finally got someone on board to look for my tablet, but about an hour and a half later, some very annoyed looking person came out with it in hand.

 

Anyway, while I was there, I was assured, repeatedly that they store and keep record of everything that is found, and that if I was inquiring immediately after the cruise, they'd could make arrangements to get it to me. Whether that was true or not, I don't know, but it's worth being persistent with your inquiries. I do wish you luck, as I know what a sick feeling it is to lose an item with so much info in it.

 

(By the way, in the process of all those phone calls, what I learned is that you really cannot call the ship. That number they give out, for family to reach you in case of an emergency, really does not call the ship. It actually takes you to another department, that also does not work on the weekends.)

I hope you get it back - we lost a camera on the 5th day of the cruise back in 2010.

 

I have heard of people getting things back but most of the time, I am sad to say it's probably gone (unless you have that tracking thing apple has on their devices).

let me guess no thank you , no tip given, what a sense of entitlement some of you have , if its so precious that you will miss flights and beg and cry, how about taking better care of these electric goodies you all seem to cant live without.

Hello UncleAlbert, your guess would be dead wrong. I did tip that fellow at the podium, (nicely) but unfortunately not the lady who carried the tablet out, as she headed right back in before I could even approach her.

 

I really wonder what it's like to be so perfect as yourself, to never have lost anything in your life. How blessed you are.

I am sorry but i have been a front desk clerk and have had to deal with this type of hoffing and puffing ,demanding your item you lost. one lady had the nerve to threaten to call the police on us, on a jacket she misplaced. smh

you are lucky it wasnt me because if you refused to move out of the way i would have had my goons escort you off the premises

I'm curious, if you lost something valuable, would you have meekly crawled away, and left without it? Especially knowing just how simple it would be to retrieve it ? Somehow I doubt it. More likely threatened to sic your goons on them?

 

I'm so glad the fellow at that podium was much more willing to be of help than you would have been. BTW, I never, ever demanded anything, of anyone there. If you read what I wrote, I said I "asked" and yes, "begged". The operative word, much repeated in that situation was very obviously: "Please ! ". And yes, I went up the ladder, as much as possible, as any logical person would do. And the reason was I staying by his side, and in the way, was because, like you, most workers would have just forgotten about me. I would have been out of sight, out of mind, and the worker happy to be unhelpful and uninvolved.

 

The purpose in my post to the OP is to say that there are some workers who are willing to help, but you have to be persistent and cut through the chaff to get to them. Keep trying.

I agree I really hope for the best for the op that it will be returned only time will tell and either way I hope they post.

Don't let the "front desk clerk" bother you.

I find there are a bunch of non-skilled job workers out there who think that they are in some sort of a power position.
