  1. Right after we got off our cruise on the Harmony, we booked a last minute Christmas trip on the Mariner. I really loved this ship! I thought the size was perfect! My kids had just as many things to do and it was super easy to navigate around. We booked another trip on her for September, but L&S to 2021 recently.
  2. Another option is to stay at the hotel at the airport and take the shuttle to the port. It is very easy to get to the port from MCO!
  3. I’m going with IT glitch! My 2 L&S cruises in 2021 are missing. I’m guessing they are fixing the no remaining balance issue that appeared yesterday.
  4. Also, Johnny Rockets is free for breakfast.
  5. My husband and son did this class on our last cruise. They really enjoyed it! It sells out, so you will want to book in advance and it took almost 2 hours. They said it was a great group of people and they came back very full! I took my other son to Johnny Rockets while they were gone because sushi is not his thing!
  6. I was able to switch from Independence of the Seas (Dec 20) to the Symphony of the Seas (Dec 21). I would push your TA to call again! In my case, I was on a Western and I was worried they were going to say Western + Perfect Day was not the same itinerary. They did allow it because I was on a 5 night right before the holiday sailings and in 21 I didn't have many options.
  7. There was a limit before the pandemic. If they think it is going to be crowded, they implement a return ticket process for some of the slides. They also started to add early entrance into the water park that you could purchase on board (I can’t remember the cost). When we first got into the park, they encourage you to ride the big slide while the line in short. We never had a problem with really long lines. The crowd thins out after lunch and then my kids rode the slides until their legs couldn’t climb the stairs anymore! We loved our cabana experience here too!
  8. I thought any time there is a price drop before final payment, you can call to get the price adjusted. That hasn't changed with CWC. I took the price adjustments in CWC for when the price drops after final payment. I have called numerous times to adjust my price before final payment.
  9. If you want the kids in a separate room, you have to be connecting, next door or across the hall. I don’t think they would allow the 1688/1388 combination. We were on the Mariner in two interior rooms in December with a 13 and 8 year old. I couldn’t get connecting rooms because we booked last minute. We are going back on this ship in 9/21 (pushed out from this year) and found the 2 BR suite was roughly the same price as 2 connecting balcony rooms. Our kids loved this ship!!
  10. I think South Beach is cheaper because it is farther away from everything. If you want a quiet place, this would be what I would choose.
  11. Thought it was interesting that 45% are taking refunds, 55% FCC. Millennials are asking for refunds, families (assume he meant Gen Xers) and Baby Boomers more likely to take the credit. Also mentioned that certain nationalities have higher propensity for refunds. Certainly doesn't sound like anything will start much before the 4th quarter. They don't want to begin sailings until their 4 pillar strategy can be implemented and that is still being worked out. Sounds like China will be first to resume, then maybe limited sailings in US to Coco Cay. Probably will use larger ships or amped ships which better support appropriate social distancing requirements. Analysts didn't seem thrilled that they are not seeking out more debt opportunities like competitors. Bookings for Q4 and 2021 are up, especially among loyalty guests. I'm sure L&S is the thing driving that! Doesn't sound like they are rushing to cut prices to fill ships.
  12. I submitted a screenshot of the L&S rules from the website and gave them copies of the original receipt and the new receipt. They did come back to me to confirm the cost of the new cruise and to make sure I didn't have any pending claims for the original sailing. I just emailed everything to them.
  13. We found that once your teens are considered adults (13), it isn’t significantly more to book a second cabin. We prefer the extra space. On the Mariner, we stayed in 2 interior cabins and I would do it again in a heartbeat!
  14. I think that they are doing L&S to get us to select ourselves out of cruises at the end of this year for some of these Caribbean and Bahamas itineraries. You must decide by August of this year. If the restrictions are still in place at the end of next year, I bet they offer something similar. We all think we got deals to push out our trips. They definitely did this for a reason!
  15. I switched from a Western Caribbean to a Western Caribbean with Perfect Day. In my case there was no Western Caribbean itinerary that was even remotely close to what I had booked. When asked what I wanted to switch to, I gave them the ship & date. When they brought up it wasn’t the same, I told them there wasn’t one that was identical to what I had, but it was the same itinerary type. The agent asked the supervisor and she okayed the switch. In my case, it’s the sailing right before the holidays, so I didn’t have many options to pick from.
