  1. Most bars use a gun and sometimes it’s gross. The lounges (CL, DL) use Seagrams in the can.
  2. Am I correct in assuming that you can’t book these cabins with just 2 people? I’ve tried several times and it always disallows booking and says to try a different category.
  3. The lobster there was probably the best I’ve ever had. The clarified butter they serve with it is a slightly sweet “caramelized?” butter and since I have a sweet tooth was delicious.
  4. What’s really wracking my brain is I’d love to know how many people actually jumped on this “glitch”. 500? 1000? 5000? It’s got to be a bunch to cause such a dilemma for RCI.
  5. It was Giovanni’s on sea days but has been changed to Chops. No special meal privileges on embarkation for suites.
  6. You’ll be able to have breakfast and lunch on sea days in Chops, but no special dinner privileges.
  7. They have to be tall due to the slosh factor of a moving ship.
  8. I’m glad you got some satisfaction but it wasn’t worth the trouble to me. Especially since we’re Diamond and were in a suite so we just got our macchiatos in the suite lounge.
  9. They have a Mystery Dinner Theater in Giovanni’s on the first night which is a whodunnit mystery for the guests to solve. I’ve never done it but most report it being a little cheesy but enjoying it. No limit on apps or sides.
  10. I just got off of the Vision transatlantic and had purchased the coffee card. I asked before using if I could get any size for one punch and was told one punch per shot. A medium would be two punches. I went straight to guest services with the printout from the cruise planner stating “any” coffee. After getting nowhere with the guest services, she summoned the mgr of dining services. And after showing him their ad, he refused to budge saying a punch per shot. I then sold their card back to them. The moral of the story is to ask first and give them their card back if they won’t comply with their own advertising.
  11. Since Giovanni’s usually has their Mystery Dinner on night 1, I’ve never seen anything other than Chops assigned on the first night. Possibly Sabor, but I’ve never seen it. You can change on the ship. You can do Chops for all three, but don’t discount Giovanni’s. Most believe (as do I) that Giovanni’s filet is better than Chops and they have excellent pasta, sides and apps to go with it. $68 is as cheap as I’ve seen a 3 night, but if it comes up for less you can cancel and repurchase
  12. I was responding to your original post and what I’m saying is that if you upgrade to a suite gty, there’s a 99.9% chance you’ll end up with a JS and nothing higher due to the new Royal Up program.
  13. With the Royal Up scheme, you can bet on an assignment to a JS. Any available GS and ups will be put up for bids.
