You can often get sushi as a freebie in Vines if you order wine. Sometimes there is a choice of sushi or another offering - whichever you like. With the beverage package it's nice to sit in Vines in the late afternoon or early evening, have a glass (or two) of wine, and partake of whatever freebie food item they are offering. We've actually just sat there a while, had our wine and a nosh, watched the people go by on the ship and watched the sea go by out the window and... ended up skipping dinner.

Sorry, I did not make it clear enough. I want to know how long the bonus cards being given out now are good for.  just in case we didn’t use them on this trip, will they be good on our next one? I need to know their expiry date to know this. Someone said they have extended the usual time period due to people having bonus cards they couldn’t use due to Covid.

 

 

off topic. Sorry for the reply before this. There is a message in the reply spot which I could not get rid of. Where do I go for a tutorial on using this message board? Ie adding quotes, etc etc, you all look like pros!

Anyone order these over the Holiday weekend and still not get the emails with the card numbers, etc?  I figured it would take a couple of days, but I am getting worried now.  My credit cards have been charged.  ( I know I can cancel the charges on my CC, but just wondering if anyone else has or is experiencing this.)    Thanks!

You can try here: 

https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/859-need-help-using-the-forums-check-here/

 

It would be a lot easier to help you - or anyone - if one could see step-by-step what you are doing.  It appears as though you may be trying to type your reply into the area of the post you are responding to after clicking on QUOTE button.  Normally, you want to type BELOW the copied message you QUOTEd. 

 

I think if you hit keyboard ENTER key while typing within the QUOTEd section, it can cause the quoted section to post and your message ends up in the next post.  Something like that, but cannot recall the exact sequence.

You must be clicking on "Quote" which replicates the message you were looking at and allows you to respond if you type your response below the replicated message. If you wish, you can go below the replicated message and hit "Backspace" on your keyboard one or more times to delete the replicated message itself.

 

Why you seem to be intending to do is make a new message. To do that go to the bottom of the page** and click on "Reply to this topic." This will allow you to type a message without replicating another one.

 

** The "Reply to this topic" box is only on the last page of the thread, so if you are not already on the last page, you must go to it.

I am getting ready to order. Question.  I understand the bonus cards have an expiry date on them. If I use them to pay on the fare side - no problem,  If I save them for our trip to add to our folio…..how much time are they allowing us to use up the funds?  We sail in February.  Thx for your help.

 

I would not wait until the last night of the sale.  I ordered mine over the holiday weekend.  I immediately received "confirmation" but without codes and pins.  I attributed that to the weekend.  Found out, by calling, that my order was rejected due to something not matching.  Phone agent reprocessed order.  Within 15 minutes, I received e-verification with codes and PIN.  

 

It was recommended to me to use the bonus cards toward any payment since they have an expiration date.  Then use the vouchers that have none.

I did it today. Had to get Royal bank approval as it picked up an unusual transaction, but got all cards electronically  within 5 minutes . Thank you for reminder to use bonus cards first!

If you once hit "quote" and then didn't actually make a reply then the quote will show up every single time you try to reply to something in the thread. (Been there, done that.) Simply select the entire entry, delete it, and then refresh the page. It should be gone.

 

I have actually "lost" a message I was trying to quote because I did "something else" while mid quote. It was just gone. Then, when I went back to the thread and decided to post something else, there was the dang quote just saved and waiting to ambush me.

 

Seriously, you are not alone. Just select it all, delete it, then refresh the page and it should be gone and stop annoying you.

I placed two orders, one for me and one for my wife.  Mine came through almost immediately, however, I did not receive even a confirmation email for my wife's order.  Both of our credit cards had been charged.  I called customer support (18339073079 | princess@buyatab.com) and they asked to reaffirm the information on my order and they opened a ticket to research the problem.  Within about two hours, the emails with the cards and pins and the receipt showed up.

 

You might have to try that if you haven't already done so.

Trouble is, I don’t know how to select the entire entry, delete it, snd refresh page! This is why I am trying to get a tutorial page to learn this stuff. I went to the forum assist on the Cruise critic intro page, but it didn’t walk you throug( this as slowly as I need to walk.  I will have to wait til I see our grandkids next…thankfully often snd soon now!  I love being old snd wise, but the tech savvy part is trying.  However…the “terrible two” paragraphs did not turn up on this…………thanks for your advice.

I use a PC so Mac will be different...

 

Use the mouse to select the text. Hit delete. Hit backspace to take out anything else.

 

Alternately: Use Ctrl and the A key to Select All. Hit Delete. If there's anything left use the backspace key to delete it.

 

You can refresh the page using the F5 key on a PC. Browsers have a page refresh button. In Firefox it looks like this:

Got mine immediately.  Call them!

I didn’t have any problems with my purchase  of gift cards plus bonus cards.  As soon as I hit purchase my phone rang from VISA confirming the purchase.  All emails came through with cards and bonus cards.

I ordered my $500 card this morning.  This is the third time I've purchased with a bonus card.  The first two times I didn't receive the bonus digital cards.  I waited a month and finally emailed customer relations.  In each case, I got the bonus cards a couple of days later.  This morning, I got the bonus cards in about 5 minutes after the purchase of the plastic ones.  Now, I'm just waiting for the plastic one in the mail.

Is anyone still getting an error message when trying to buy gift cards?

Thank you

No error messages nor problems this morning.  I ordered 500 x 4 E-Gift Cards this morning at 3:54 am PT (Friday 6:54 am ET); I received by email the receipt at 3:55 AM, followed by the 4 gift cards (4 emails) and bonus cards (1 email) at 3:57 AM.

---

 

NOTE:  This was my second order of 500 x 4 E-Gift Cards. 

 

-- My previous order was made earlier this week on Wednesday at 11:19 am PT; I received by email the receipt at 11:20 AM, followed by the 4 gift cards (4 emails) and bonus cards (1 email) at 11:22 AM.

 

-- Both times I ordered using my Princess Barclays Card Visa. 

 

-- The first time this week I received an informational text from my Princess visa (after I already received the E-gift cards by email):

"Free Fraud Alert:

Princess Rewards Card ending in {XXXX} - A charge for $2,000.00 at EGIFT CARD{999 999 9999} was APPROVED on 07/07. Reply 1 if valid. Reply 2 if not valid."

My July statement just posted this morning.  The first transaction is listed; I only received 2000 points for the $2000 order.

 

The transaction description is "Buyatab - Pr 8339073079  604-678-3275 DE".

 

Guess we need to call someone!

My statement reads differently maybes because it has posted but it reads the merchant as Princess Cruises

and Merchant location CA and then just a phone number
