  1. Maybe it depends on the particular barista but we have never had extra punches taken for a double shot.
  2. We have the same tags and they work great. At the hotel, the morning of the cruise I pull them out and loop them through the handles our suitcases and we are all set. They are very durable. I think ours cost about $6.
  3. They still leave the vouchers in your cabin for you to cash out at the casino cashier. I had to sign each of them and provide photo id, as well. Easy enough!
  4. We were on the two cruises just prior to dry dock in November and had a great time. I really couldn't find anything to complain about, including ATD. Each person sees thing through their own eyes.
  5. The coffee credits do carryover the the second leg of your cruise. We had the same type b2b cruise in November and all remaining credits from the first week were added to those we acquired for the 2nd week. We traded our elite minibar setup for coffee cards on each leg of the cruise.
  6. We recently downloaded the Ocean Ready app and created a login. I was able to add photos and personal info but it would not find any future bookings. Is there a time frame for future cruises? I entered my booking number but received a error message that name not found on this sailing and to check my spelling. Is this app only effective a short while before you cruises?
  7. Same experience for us on the Royal in November. We were on b2b 7 day cruises (booked as 14 day) and traded the minibar each week for coffee cards. During the second leg of the cruise we found those unused punches leftover from the first week rolled over the the second week.
  8. How far in advance of your cruise can you create logins for the Ocean Medallions apps. I have downloaded OceanReady and OceanNow but can't seem to create any logins.
  9. We have been on the Royal and Caribbean Princess since the new coffee card deal went into effect and both times we were asked which card we wanted to have the coffee packages added to. Room service gave us the option as to the distribution. The status has nothing to do with it. If you had booked a suite, for instance, you could trade out the minibar for coffee cards, even if it was your first cruise.
  10. The 15 coffees are encoded onto your ship account, fifteen each for the two people in the cabin. The barista scans your cruise card or medallion and deducts one coffee each time you get a premium coffee.
  11. You will have many opportunities to purchase the cards once on board. We did a B2B on the Royal Princess in November and our coffee cards were valid for both legs of the cruise. We are elite and we always trade our minibar setup for coffee cards (digitally encoded on our cruise card of course). My DW likes specialty coffees every morning while I use my card for only brewed coffee and an occasional latte. The odd thing to me was that when we traded our minibar setup for the 2nd leg of the cruise for coffee cards the barista told me that I then had nearly 30 punches for specialty brews remaining on my card, so they not only carryover but are also accumulative. I guess I could have used my punches to get coffees for my DW and kept our minibar setup but it wasn't worth the inconvenience.
  12. https://www.foxnews.com/travel/carnival-cruise-line-will-no-longer-sail-to-antigua.amp We found this news story about the pending departure.
  13. Same with us! We missed a cruise a few years ago because of two unrelated flight delays. It was a terrible feeling and now we always fly a day early.
  14. Looks like a beautiful area! If you google "lighthouse point eleuthera bahamas".
  15. The last three times we did B2B all we had to do was go to the Princess Theater and wait until all "in transit" passengers got there then we were checked back in. They scan your cruise card when you go into the theater and again as you leave.
