  1. Thanks for your reply but whether you would use it in consideration was not the question. Just trying to gather data for friends to make their decision. We might eat there twice a week but we have friends that go every single day (and that is for a “snack”) between lunch and specialty dining dinner.
  2. Thanks. I thought I had read of some ships not including it.
  3. Since JR’s pricing changes...and sometimes varies from ship to ship...I thought it would be helpful to know what the various prices are on each ship currently/recently (2019). This might help folks decide whether to purchase the Unlimited Dining Package. If if you are currently on a ship or have been within the last few months...please list the ship name, the fee per person for JR, and if it did or did not include soda/cola.
  4. 150 CP was our absolute favorite! Wonderland is fabulous if you want to be a little adventurous. Jamie’s and Hooked are ok but not our favorite.
  5. If you are booking a “last minute” cruise (after final payment date) and want to pay all of the fare with points how do you do that? (Redeem a “free cruise for two” after the typical final payment date.)
  6. Since many people like to see the compass ahead of time....here is one for viewing. Not positive, but I think this was the first time SY did this exact itinerary. Of course, events/dates/times always subject to change based on Captain, HD, CD, LA, weather, etc. Miami Seaday Seaday St Maarten San Juan Labadee Seaday Miami COMPASS_SY_05-04-2019_ST M, SJU, LABADEE, 3 SEA.pdf
  7. If you have purchased "The Key" where do you see it ahead of time? I would think it would be somewhere in the cruise planner but I don't see it. Does it show on setsail?
  8. The Ultimate Dining Package indicates "40% off wine bottles" in the specialty dining venue. I am sure these aere dumb questions but....does that truly mean if they normally charge $32 for a bottle of wine it will now be $19.20 if purchased while dining in that specialty restaurant? Is gratuity based on the $32 or the $19.20? Has anyone gotten the discount at a bar before dinner? Sorry....we don't buy wine bottles but my sister does. She likes to have her wine before (and during) dinner so just curious if she can buy a bottle prior to dinner? Are you limited to one bottle? (Don't judge.😀) It truly is not for me but I know she will ask so I would like to know other folks' experience. Thanks for any/all info and sharing your experience.
  9. What????? What specifically is your onboard complaint? Obviously I am not reading this correctly because I do not see where you identify what specifically happened that needs correcting. Now if the post was about the website or the off-shore call centers I wouldn't need any further explanation! Both of those suck and need totally revamped but onboard service is always impeccable with only an occasional hiccup here and there which is expected in any industry dealing with humans!
  10. I recently saw an archery contest listed on the activities page of the SY on the RC app.
  11. I have no problem with "associates" winning the prizes. They came to the party with you. I am good with that. It is the people that show up early for the next event in that venue or that stroll in just because they see a "private event" sign, etc. When those folks win the prizes and don't even know what Cruise Critic is...that is what irks me. The fact that they realize it is an event for a specific group but then still accept the prize....that is annoying.
  12. We have attended a few that had the "ice breaker" games. I am not a fan. I did participate but I think the time is much better spent just having everyone introduce themselves (screenname and where they are from). Then if I spot someone I specifically wanted to meet I know who to go see. I agree that if there are 200 participants then that is a little time consuming and probably unrealistic. But the times there are 50+ attendees is definitely the "exception rather than the rule". I had not thought of it until replying on this thread a few days back but I really do like the idea of having your screen-name on the prize ticket. That way when it is drawn the name can be announced and then the host doesn't have to remember to ask the screen-name. It also might help just a little on keeping the "party crashers" from winning prizes.
  13. The link to register for the M&M is still working. Quite a few CC members have the link listed in our signature. If you have your "settings" "set" to show the signatures you can see the link and click on it. I agree that the link that listed the party day, date, time, & location went away a year or so ago. I believe the problem with the invitations (for those that registered) more recently has been "mail delivery issues" onboard. On several sailing we had trouble getting "other mail" in addition to the M&M invitations. I agree with another poster that stated it is kind of "sucky" when non CC folks just happen upon the party and win the prizes. I am always happy to talk about CC and suggest folks come to the site to chat. It seems somehow there are always a few that come to the party and win a prize. Then when asked their screen-name they reply "I don't have one. I just saw the party and decided to come in." Maybe a suggestion would be to actually write your screen name on the raffle tickets before they are put in the bucket. That way anyone putting a ticket in would at least know they were "supposed" to have a screen-name to attend the party. (Or a member of their group have a screen name!) Mr. Ski rarely posts and actually does have a "log in" however he prefers just to log in under me and post on occasion. (He knows he better state it is him posting though. LOL) So even though he rarely posts he does have a screen=name but we just always call him "Mr Ski" since I am the one posting 99.999% of the time.
