  1. We've sailed on Seaside in YC once, and are going again in April. We've done suite class on X several times and loved it. I'd say the food in YC isn't quite as good as Luminae, but there were some things we liked very much and we certainly never went hungry. The YC pool and bar/grill area is wonderful, and you'll enjoy the YC lounge too. As far as smoking goes, not a smoker, but there were definitely smoking areas on one side of the pool deck, the shaded area with tables. There's also a smoking area outside at the front of the YC lounge. Half of that seating area is for smokers. Enjoy your cruise!
  2. Oh, that's a good back-up plan. My husband's never been to Key West. We're sailing Seaside 4/18. No plans to cancel.
  3. Thanks everyone. Looks like we'll be purchasing internet.
  4. It's the "depending on length of cruise" thing that I'm curious about.
  5. We're sailing on Seaside in April. I know that internet isn't included now, but supposed to be included for sailings beginning in May. After I made my final payment back in January, I actually read the fine print about what's included in our Yacht Club "Experience." (page 5 of our email confirmation) It says Premium Internet Package, up to 4GB, (depending on the length of your cruise.) After reading that I called and spoke to a rep, who assured me that internet was included for us. I know that speaking to a rep unfortunately doesn't mean anything with MSC, as you tend to get a different answer depending on who you speak to. I canceled the package I purchased online. Now I'm wondering if the depending on the length of your cruise is going to determine whether we get it or not. Anyone know?? If it's 4GB complimentary, we won't bring all of our devices. If it isn't, we'll purchase the 4 device package and bring laptop/iPad. Prefer not to lug everything, but unfortunately I do have to check work email on vacation, and I prefer to do that on my Ipad.
  6. I think I know the answer to this, but can someone refresh my memory. Trying to purchase the 20 pc. laundry package. I know we did this last year, and shared the package between the two of us. One package for 2 people. No need to check the boxes next to both of our names, right?
  7. This is what we plan on doing. Not even going to try over the phone. Not worth the time/hassle.
  8. We're sailing in YC on Seaside in April, and if it's still the reasonable $17/day upgrade, we're probably going to do it too.
  9. Great, thank you. We're on Seaside in YC again in April, and can't wait. I think we're going to treat ourselves to the upgrade.
  10. George, were you in YC and did you upgrade ahead online or once you were on board?
  11. Making a note of this. We'll sailing in April. 🙂

    On the MSC website getting ready to order internet for our cruise in April. We're just missing the complimentary YC internet by one month. Doing the same as our last cruise, 4-device, 8GB. I seem to remember asking the same question last year when I ordered this package. You only have to check one of the boxes for our stateroom (it's showing my husband and I) because it's for 4 devices. It's NOT $147pp, correct??
  13. It was the same on Labadee when we sailed with Royal Caribbean. Paying for the umbrella is pretty standard.
  14. We matched from Diamond (RC) to Black (MSC), and are now Diamond with MSC. We sailed with them for the first time in January 2019, so we must have done our match in 2018.
  15. I hear ya. I always book by myself, but have been trying to get thru to them for the past week, and still no luck. I don't have time with my job to sit on hold for hours, and unfortunately, it sounds like that's what you need to do.
