  1. Something with my posts must be off. Those posts don't have anything on Aqua80. That is okay though, I saw it last week. It was fantastic! Thanks 🙂
  2. Correct, nothing on 11 any longer. Have to go up to 12, port side. It's just outside the elevator area. Rain/sun = not good, except that little area in the back of the picture. However, everything you see here is a smoking area, plus where I am standing taking the pic is smoking, and has a few chairs
  3. Thanks for mentioning this. Our in April was $54, and now with sale is $39.99. I cancelled and repurchased as well. $28 savings is nice.
  4. Well the smoking area did change on Navigator. Now that JR's is on the deck where the smoking area was, there is no smoking on deck 11. You must go up to deck 12, and there is an area that is somewhat protected by the VCL above. According to the APP, the areas to smoke on Oasis are still basically the same. Deck 15, just a bit further back (same area as Harmony & Symphony) and 16 seems to be there as well....according to the app.
  5. Odd... I get offers multiple times a month for complimentary sailings. I am only Prime, but this year I got an inside to balcony upgrade for $73 solo on Mariner, $88 solo on Oasis that is coming up. I thought those were good deals. They have offered a few free upgrades to OV, but I am not interested in an OV room. All that extra light to wake me up, and no fresh air to compensate.
  6. Well... if Prime, you have gambled that much, but maybe not spent that much. Prime is 2500 points. In regular slots (not video poker or table, which require a bit more money) 1 point is earned with $5 ran through the machines. So 2500 points is by playing $12500.00 through the machines.
  7. There is no way to know what $ amount it will take with the exception of... in order to earn 2500 points to become Prime, one will have to play $12,500.00 through a slot machine. Does not necessarily cost that much, but that is how much that has to be run through the machines... if only playing regular slots.
  8. Just from the video footage I saw, I know I am going to like it. It's so much more expansive than I had in my mind, not to mention the furniture they put out there is really nice.
  9. Josh's exact words at intermission... "Let's go get some popcorn." Me: "Okay" Him: "and not come back." 🤣
  10. You forgot the question of... "no matter which, will RCI enforce it." I'm sure that question is easily answered. 😳
  11. The outdoor area forward of the Solarium looks much better than I had imagined. It's gorgeous out there.
  12. this video is great. I love seeing crew/staff being able to enjoy the facilities and food on the island. That is awesome.
  13. I've made prime and earned a certificate on $2 that was promo money from the casino. I doubt that will ever happen again, but man that was a fun cruise. However free JS's require a big chunk of points to be earned... usually. It's hard to say how many for a free cruise, but I can tell you that when RCI gets desperate (Cuba cancelled) even people that have spent extremely little get offers. My Aunt got a free 8 night on Empress, in July, after those cancellations... and she only had a total of 212 points for the year in Casino Royale. 😱 As far as the financial problems... I do not know if anyone here can give advice on that, as I would not know how to bring it up to someone I know... but if I was truly concerned, I guess I would find a way.
