If I do that you know we will have to have a rum tasting here. Plenty to choose from. 🍹

LOL. I just threw out about 3 dozen of the "loving cups" that JC just mentioned but fortunately I hung onto about 2 dozen of the glass shooters that they used to peddle in the dining room.  I dragged those home from Europe too.  We could set up a nice classy tasting of those rums..

Hmmm If we all write to Michael Bayley...will they go back to giving us chocolates on our pillows and the RCI pen & paper in the cabins :classic_smile:

Don’t forget the neon yellow ShipShape t-shirts! 😂

That's an easy decision for me - mail it to me.  No more luggage weight issues or hassles with TSA flagging the block as a suspicious item that needs secondary screening by an officer.

All the suggestions about just going to the LA onboard to ask for one are a bit of a moot point since it says RCI isn't going to be "ordering" them any longer once what they have are gone.

Maybe RCI could change its mind.

Wow.  Quick change.  I will continue to get blocks for new ships but will decline for blocks I already have.  I have, in the past, given my blocks to crew members or honeymooners.  No need to have multiples.

Yeah we asked onboard Adventure February 2020 and they said they'd mail it.  Covid hit a couple weeks later and we gave up hope it would ever arrive.

I was supposed to get one on Adventure 2020 but I was not on the list and they had no extras. The LA said it would get mailed to me and, sure enough, it did eventually arrive even with Covid.

I asked the Loyalty Ambassador on the Freedom today about the Odyssey, and she advised that the Odyssey does not have any blocks.  If that is true, then Royal knew months ago that they were going to eliminate the blocks.

Umm… months ago they were negotiating multi billion dollar loans.  Dropping things like treasured glass blocks seems like a minimum trying to reduce debt effort.

Wow! You brought back some fond memories. I remember our table of 8 got together daily trying everything to earn those ShipShape dollars...then near the end of the cruise, they would set up a table to redeem those dollars for keychains, pens, water bottles, and yes...that "priceless" ShipShape t-shirt.

I love it...still have mine...but it's not neon anymore it's a soft yellow and looks very vintage.

Actually our youngest son wore it on a cruise a few years ago and got so many comments on it...many asked if he would sell it to them. RCI should definitely bring them back....much cooler than those casino shirts.

Raise your hands if you have ever left a block in your cabin when debarking.  

Hand raised, I think we only ever took the first one and it just sits in a cupboard somewhere in it's box.

I was wondering the same thing.  If the C&A point recognition blocks are no longer given, I would assume the Pinnacle stratums to recognize point levels will also be gone?  

 

Yup, just my luck.  😞   Naturally those are ordered, but they may not have the "blanks" to engrave any longer.

Our table competed as well, and those of us who won our ShipShape t-shirts wore them to the table the last night.  We were so darned proud of ourselves.  😁
