  1. In order to qualify for the free cruises or money off simply insert your seapass card to track your points.
  2. Keep checking the cruise planner. On one of our recent sailings it showed up and then a few weeks later it was gone. About 4 weeks prior to sailing it showed up again. Possible there may be some cancellations.
  3. I just received via email a dining survey from RCI. It asked questions in regard to the type of dining I would like to see on the ships. They asked about the types of dining (casual, fine, buffet, MDR, specialty), how likely I would be to dine at those and whether I would pay extra. They wanted to know if I would prefer a tasting menu, fixed price menu or ala carte pricing. They specifically asked me several questions about five types of dining establishments. They were Fine dining with a twist, high end steakhouse, dining in the dark, underwater dining and tree top dining. This further leads me to believe they are going toward different specialty type of restaurants that would be an additional fee.
  4. I can't see them getting rid of the Key. They are making money on it. I can see them not releasing it long term because it is a fairly new product and I am sure their marketing people are pricing to see what the market will bear......
  5. This would be great. I think it would free up space in the Diamond lounge.
  6. Anyone know what the Beach Bash entails? I am already booked on one of the dates.
  7. We have eaten there. I Really enjoyed it and would definitely go again. My husband (meat and potatoes guy) didn't go away hungry but probably only go again if I really coerced him.
  8. Myself and daughters (then ages 13 and 18) did it on the Oasis a few years ago. We had a blast. Yes it was a bit pricey, but it was very fun.
  9. Watch for price drops on cabanas. If you book one and the price drops you can call, cancel and rebook at lower price. If you decide to get the GS, when we went to Coco Cay in March there was an area by the chill island cabanas that was reserved for just suite guests. Upgraded buffet, Shuttle service, loungers and umbrellas.
  10. I agree with fishermen. We frequently stay in a GS. However if this is his first cruise he will be blown away regardless of your cabin. We had a cabana on Chill island in March. My children say it was the best day of the cruise. They had a shuttle specifically for the cabanas that would take you where ever you wanted to go on the island. The beach area is private. My kids loved snorkeling right there.
  11. I use a lanyard with a plastic pouch when I am on the ship except to dinner. I generally don't carry a purse. The pouch is also convenient to carry a few ones for tips to the bartender. I do not wear a lanyard off the ship.
  12. Is this for US sailings? I saw something similar but it was for Australian sailings.
  13. I am Prime, I am only able to cruise twice a year. I have been consistently getting offers for Junior suites.
  14. Myself and my three daughters dined at the Chef's table on the Mariner in March. They were selling it in the Windjammer. I ask him if there were discounts. I said if we could get a discount I would book it for the 4 of us. When. I got back to my cabin there was a message that the four of us could dine for $50 per person. We booked it and it was excellent. On a side note I was called another night and asked if two of us wanted to do it again for free as they needed to fill two spots. We declined as I didn't want to leave part of us out. So the take away here, especially on shorter sailings and they are actively promoting it on board, is to ask for a discount.
