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.

 

That is staying power!  Mine wore out a long time ago, alas.  And I agree, much cooler than the casino shirts.  We should send another pleading email!  😊

Frankly, with double points being available they would have been handing them out like candy.

 

True. With all of the cancellations being L&S'd to 2022 we ended up with a B2B2B where we would have received two blocks between when we got on and when we got off. We were going to give the second one back to the LA.

Still have my t-shirt from many years ago, though the size -S is a bit snug.

 

That is a major problem with cruising.  The more times a shirt goes on a ship, the more it seems to shrink for the next cruise.  I just don't understand why!

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.. 

We were on a NYE cruise on Brilliance when they were having a clearance sale on obsolete glassware, and we bought them for $1 apiece. Gave as Christmas gifts the next year.

Salt air dehydrates the fabric causing it to shrink😉

A rather quick "Never mind!" change like this can only lead one to start taking odds on Nancy Ramos' future w/RCL.  Announce the demise of Crystal Blocks one day and have your boss override it the next.

Who knows?  Maybe it was Michael's idea.  He wasn't sure but guessed they were for Pinnacles not long ago.  

 

I think the calls for Nancy's demise are way too premature.

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.

Besides, all those blocks people left onboard means they don't need to have so many made, they can just use those. They ought to be glad.

Probably too soon as you suggest.  Having your boss countermand you like that isn't pleasant unless she agreed or chose to take it on the chin for the team.

I am nowhere close to 140 points so have never gotten one.  Didn't even know what they were or that this existed till this thread.  But you could count me in the 60% that would leave it in the room as I have no interest in cheap tchotchkes.

They don't dare terminate her... that's a job no one wants.  Anything you do is wrong in the eyes of one guest or another.

We also were stockpiling the coins you’d be given to use in a special slot machine in the casino.  Since they’ve now taken all the machines out, they’re useless.  I now have 30+ coin souvenir.

Almost a keychain's worth.

So excited they will keep the crystal blocks.  We will be getting one on Quantum next Sept. on our Alaska cruise.  They could get rid of the pins though, except for maybe the Pinns.  We just throw the pins in a drawer.

I love the pins! I attach it to my camera strap or lanyard along with other fave pins!

How do you get the pins?  I think I might have one but without climbing the stairs I can not confirm.

I did get a luggage tag once.
