  1. We are sailing towards the end of Jan on Divina. I got an upgrade offer email already back in early November and heard back that it was accepted on Dec 12th. We had a Bella balcony booked and upgraded into a yacht club deluxe suite. Booked directly through MSC. This is also our first sailing on MSC, but are Diamond aka Black card members, because of status match from Royal. Good luck on upgrades everyone!
  2. Does anyone know if the drink packages will work on the island, as they do on Royal's private stops? Just curious because they offer an "Ocean Cay" alcohol package as well. Don't know if this is needed on top of the premium package or what the deal is. Sorry, MSC newbie here! Thanks in Advance! Heading there in Jan.
  3. Hello Everyone... Sorry, newbie to MSC here. Heading out in Jan. Couple quick questions.... Also forgive me if this has been answered elsewhere, but I could not find it on CC. Is the ship drink package going to work on the island? Only asking because I see in the cruise planner that they have drink packages that say ocean cay. Didn't know if this was needed on top of the premium package or not? Also, our status match from RCCL got us black status on MSC. Is that going to be worth anything haha? Thanks for the info in advance!!!
  4. Oh No! Thanks for the memories 😢 I had two sailings cancelled at that time. In a JS. Ended up going on Oasis instead as dates weren’t flexible. Paid the “prevailing rate” for A JS a week out. OUCH!! NO price protection and very little OBC as compensation.
  5. Look up a menu from Anthem... Should be the same. From what I remember, you end up paying about the same as a cover charge one. Downfalls are no unlimited fries and rings and also the amazing sundae is gone 😞
  6. Seems about right to me.... as my earlier post stated it doesn’t end up being good for the customers at all in the end. About on par for what we were offered.
  7. I have been scheduled to be on the first two cruises actually after a dry dock, and they were both cancelled due to longer than expected work. What will happen if this is the case, is that they will give you price protection on a VERY few number of other cruse itineraries that you can switch to for the same rate or cancel for a full refund. These sailings will almost be immediately sold out as everyone tries to rebook at once, so then you will be forced to chose refund or pay the prevailing rate for a cruse that is a very short time away. (usually meaning super expensive) They will reimburse a VERY small amount towards travel expenses, but not even close enough to cover for most. We ended up having to chose an Oasis sailing, which was 2 nights less total, for the prevailing rate and was about 3400 more. Wasn't too fun dealing with it all but we of course had a good time once aboard. We had just been on oasis earlier that year but oh well. Its definitely the risk you take being on an immediate sailing following a dry dock.
  8. SO how was the cruise?? Do you have the menus that you could share now?
  9. What about Anthem out of Bayonne?? How early does boarding start in that terminal? Newbie to that port, sorry haha. Ive been on ships as early as 10-10:15 but that was port everglades.
  10. Hello All!! I see it's been a few months since anyone has posted in this thread, but i'm just curious as to if anyone has had any recent news of the day pass availability??? We have done day passes at other Sandals locations, but never this one. It was usually arranged per email. Does anyone have an email for someone at the resort that handles this? I would call, but I seem to have exhausted all my options for international calling them and can't get it to work!! We sail in a few weeks. Thanks in advance to anyone who may have some info!
  11. Hey Bob.... I know in the past, some ships offered 20% off drink packages for D. Is this the case any more that you have heard of? I was told yes on Navigator earlier this year but no on Jewel. Wondering for Anthem..... hmmmmmmm
