  1. DH and I attend the shows nightly and our least favorite are the production shows, and on many of which we've walked out. They generally have zero or weird plotlines and leave quite a bit to be desired especially when you've sailed on the same ship multiple times. I think they're already dead and someone needs to bury them!
  2. There's no advantage, but it's just something to do to get out of the way before sailing. Some like to do it to make the cruise seem closer. Do it now or do it later, it's up to you.
  3. Congratulations on the award. This forum is becoming more about the CEO than about the cruise line. Half of the home page is dedicated to her, and now more threads. I get that she's into the increase women's roles initiative, and loves to also promote Captain Kate as her banner waver, but enough already.
  4. I don't know if this is the site you're looking for, but this one will show the seas, winds and weather. http://passageweather.com/
  5. I think "Elvis" has left the building. Radio silence since post #1.
  6. I'm fairly easy going and immune to sales pitches (DH spent much of his career as a sales manager in insurance) but my experiences with Canyon Ranch were overpriced and downright unpleasant.
  7. Creams, lotions, potions during facials and massages and on several occasions skin brushes were being pushed during massages.
  8. You're lucky that your note to not sell products was respected. I wrote notes and verbally mentioned my preference for the same and was subjected to non-stop product sales on multiple occasions. I'm glad yours were honored.
  9. I always asked for a female masseuse when scheduling massages and was accommodated. I stopped frequenting the Canyon Ranch spas about 5 years ago because of the non-stop sales pressure during the service despite asking for a quiet massage before the service and telling them I'd not be buying anything. I finally gave up after advising several different masseuses on several different X ships that if they pushed sales during the service I'd not be tipping. They did push products non-stop, and I've given up. I can get relaxing massages at home, much less expensively, without the sales pitch. It's really a shame, because I always looked forward to a relaxing massage and facial on board, but Canyon Ranch must really be pushing its operators to sell, sell, sell and has ruined the ambience and relaxing atmosphere, at least for me.
  10. You can also remove users from your ignore list if you change your mind.
  11. The last time we were on Connie, we were told that Ocean liners was to be replaced with Qsine, and Tuscan was on the deck above the pool deck. We've not been back aboard since the change though.
  12. You are, of course, absolutely correct. I meant that I log on in the US and don't make the extra step of going to any of the other sites. Sorry.
  13. I watched them make several and Bailey's was added.
