  1. Then again, you might have been right in the first place.
  2. Ok, I do see what you're saying, but the bottom line is still only a $420 saving, and as has been pointed out when you add grats to that it's not much of a discount. I don't find their website on cruise pricing very clear most of the time.
  3. Actually I think I said the bottom line difference is $420. The -$290 is for taking the NRD option, while the cruise only has it built in. It is only giving a discount for deducting the AI. I didn't miss it, but they are using smoke and mirrors and comparing apples to oranges. The only way the difference is $710 is if you take the refundable deposit option with the AI and the NRD with the cruise only. I do get what they are doing.
  4. I don't understand the math, there is a $710 deduction for doing cruise only, yet the bottom line difference is only $420. Is that deceptive marketing or am I missing something. They both seem to be NRD.
  5. Maybe they had it confused with the aft Concierge cabins, which I believe do have solid metal up to the open area.
  6. No, it's the hot evening news item. The onus will be on the unvaccinated, which there are still plenty of them, but the vaccinated are supposed to be safe. Sounds good to me.
  7. Maybe it's just the way I'm reading it but it seems like they're inferring that Sunday Brunch is something that has always happened, but they're now making it better.
  8. There is what we're being told in marketing speak, then there will be what actually happens onboard. I'll be curious how close they meet.

    Privee Dining

    Did it go up? I thought it was $250, but I've never paid for it, just read that somewhere. I have been in there various times with GM hosted dinners, but don't remember how many are in there for those dinners. Lyn, did you count?
  10. Really? I always get an email when someone quotes or reacts to one of my posts. I think I get one also when they use the @ORV Must be in the settings somewhere.
  11. This feels like Deja Vu all over again.
  12. After a certain level all the cruise lines are pretty good. It just comes down to preferences at that point.
  13. Is he trying to bypass using a TA and handle the group booking himself? I could see that being a problem.

    I believe this is a question for your ta. With you being in the UK the rules are probably different than what most of us in North America have experienced.
