The QR Codes aboard the ships actually use a service to redirect to a deep link based on some additional information.

 

The Johnny Rockets QR Code redirects to:
 

https://rcc.app.link/JohnnyRocketsMenu

 

app.link is a commercial service hosted on Amazon servers (What is app.link | Branch) that provides this sort of thing; one part of the step is based on the browser to return code to redirect the link through an installed app based upon the detected device. In my case when I captured this, it's redirecting my browser to:

http://ms-windows-store://pdp/?PFN&_branch_match_id=869689643569291716&utm_source=Print Media&utm_campaign=Johnny Rockets - Digital Menu&utm_medium=QR Code
 

Which basically does nothing; not sure it's even correct for a Windows desktop either, as I don't believe it should even get an http:// prefix; the "ms-windows-store://" should be the prefix to initiate looking for a Windows App for Royal Caribbean matching whatever rules are passed.

 

But in any case, it's unlikely they want to even provide access to the menus via QR Code on a desktop browser, so they may not even have configured any of this part of the API and we're just seeing it go a little weird if we try it this way.

Yupp, that's what I thought.  😜🤪🙃

Nonsense

If I can look up and see the sky unobstructed by glass or any other thing I'm outside. It's really not complicated.  

 

A semantic argument over in and on is just nuts.

That makes sense.  I had no clue where the actual file was located.

Diamond Lounge situation.

It's open, no service, but I did find a business card for Elaine Santana Diamond Concierge

 

Still have this sign up as you leave

And no coffee machine.

Coffee at Johnny Rockets was fine

Just confirming -- Diamond Lounge is still located on Deck 11 with the big windows?  Thanks

Got an invite to CK for dinner, but declined it, since it was only for the two of us. Glad they are utilizing the venue

 

Whattttt. really. As just a lowly Diamond with 144 points, I would love to go to Coastal kitchen.

 

Say you might know this but will they have something in my room when I arrive about the Crystal block that is due me.

I am on the Ovation in Sept and it was the last RCI I did made it to 140 points but got no crystal.

 

How much begging will I have to do on the ship with the C&A folks?

 

Meanwhile enjoy the rest of your quick cruise and take photos of leaving and also with the dust and smoke in the air, see if any nice sunset photos are around. 

 

Oh and wake up Twangster will ya.  haha

nice to see a 3rd person on cc is also on your cruise.

But you could build one with a little creativity and a smile

Yes they have.  First Allure cruise I had those they are called skillet potatoes and I added the egg as well, we have had those every Oasis class cruise...my fave and no crowds.

Lovely LaLa with her waves

Selfie was hard because the waves kept hitting as I composed shot

Stay in a suite and you can go to CK 🙂

 

 

If the block is not there, go talk to the loyalty ambassador.  We were due one on the second leg of a b2b on Oasis.  After the LA confirmed it with Miami they brought it to us.  We're due one on the first leg of our b2b this Nov/Dec on Harmony.  We've gotten them on Allure, Oasis and Anthem.  What's funny is the ship we've been on the most  is Grandeur (7X) but never timed it right to get the block.

Personally, I think relying on app is goint to put off a lot of customers. 

 

Agreed but I think it will be the way of the world going forward.  Happening everywhere.  I'd guess that the vast majority will still have a paper option if you ask for it, but paper will no longer be the default.

Going back a few pages to yesterday John, you said you had a new couch and saw new carpet and pool furniture, what is the general condition of the ship, like is there lots of new furniture and things look good? We are on Allure October 24 and were last on it 3 years ago and were worried that it missed many updates last year in Cadiz. Hoping lots of worn out stuff was taken care of since 2018. I know they replace things periodically but some things were looking rough last time.

 

Also where did you get the Bella door sign? My daughter needs one for her Lola.

Same here, we didn't get the one we were due a couple cruises back, but we were on Vision and they had a little ceremony at the recognition for tiers.
