  1. My TA ignored my requests for a price drop , cost me several hundred dollars . Didn't use them on last cruise , booked with RCCL , saved several hundred dollars by calling RCCL directly for price drops . I only used the TA as they were linked with my credit card and I got triple points if I dealt with them , but those triple points aren't worth that much . I let them know not to call me anymore .
  2. On allure they had beef tenderloin on same night as lobster night . I asked our server for two tails along with the beef for a surf and turf . He brought the plate with the beef , my wife took the veggies and I took the beef . He had also brought the two lobster tails with the sides on another plate . They will accomodate you as best as they can .
  3. The Allure needs a dry dock . I was on it last week and she is looking a tad worn in places .
  4. Just off the Allure yesterday . I saw 3 , possibly 4 little doggies on the cruise . None were wearing service vests . I saw little kids playing with one and petting it and the owner was pleased with the attention his cruise partner was getting . I don't think service animals like to be handled by strangers. I'm glad they weren't large dogs , but just give it time .
  5. Just got off the Allure caribbean cruise yesterday. First formal night I walked up to the gatekeeper at the entrance of the dining room and asked if formal wear required. His response was ..... we do not turn anyone away . I was in shorts and a collared shirt and he was insisting that I enter for dinner. I didn't go but I did the second formal night wearing a jacket and long pants and noticed that about half the guys wore jackets and the other half didn't . So theré you have it , wear whatever you want . I will never bring a jacket again . Long pants and a shirt is what I will were on formal night and a shirt and shorts for the other nights in the dining room. Another observation in the windjammer , some people were dressed formally up there also . .
  6. We just graduated to emerald , so I can book 2 cruises in junior suites or 4 cruises in our usual baclcony rooms to get to diamond where any meaningful perks are . Think I will book balcony and just pay for the expresso and save thousands of dollars , lol And I get two more cruises whilst I climb to diamond . Cheers
  7. I fired my agent for the same reason . I get extra points on my credit card if I book through them. Last year I was noticing price drops and sent emails but was totally ignored by her. Also left voice mails ... no response . So this year another agent calls to let me know she would be handling my acount . I politely told her I will be dealing direct with rccl moving forward. I have saved over 400.00 in price drops on my upcoming cruise . One quick call to rccl and everything was handled very well. And I get a confirmation email with in the hour . No more T A for me .
  8. Ship .... Oasis class We have tried other classes and find the big one suites us better . That particular class tend to cost more , but that's o k with us .
  9. I got two price drops on Aluure Sept cruise . Booked direct with rccl I do mock bookings about once a week . No discounts after final payment though
  10. We had a jumper the last night of our cruise and the oasis was late getting into port . Lots of people missed their flights . Every other cruise was OK though , without delays . You should be fine .
  11. My September sailing on allure opened up a few weeks ago and I booked all my shows . I was surprised that they were open so soon.
  12. My first oasis sailing I had deck 9 , 5 cabins back from the end and it was perfect viewing of all activities And good view out the back of the ship . I wanted to try a boardwalk balcony as it was a new experience at the time . We enjoyed it but we are back to ocean view balconies now.
  13. One thing about tribute bands .... music is very repetitive , so if you are a fan of the band you will enjoy. We had a journey tribute band on the anthem and while they were good I could only take so much of the high pitched singer . One show was more than enough for me . There was also another band that played a variety of music and I liked them much more . I always book on the 8th floor and every time I passed by Dazzles it was usually packed in the evening . I guess the music hall generates more revenue . Less dancers and more drinking .
  14. That Bermuda sailing was the only one I experienced rough seas while on the Anthem . Wont be doing that cruise any more . Caribbean is much calmer seas .
