  1. Here's my story. Several weeks ago I did online check in for DH and I on my phone. I took his picture, but didn't take mine (bad hair day, lol 🤣). I figured I could add it later. I can't find a way to edit the set sail pass on my phone. Is there a way? Next thing I did was look at online check in on the computer. I could edit it and saw a place to add my photo, but this time I was in my PJs with no make up on 😲, so I figured I'd add it later. So, a few weeks pass and I was going to edit online check in today on the computer to add my photo. I get an "oops there is a problem, please try again later" message. I've received it all day. I noticed that my edocs are available. Does this mean that I can't edit anymore or is there really a glitch? I sail in a month. The edocs don't have a set sail pass, but we have them on our phones. I prefer a paper copy so I don't have to mess with my phone at check in. Am I out of luck? Thanks for the help!
  2. If you get the chance....you were going to verify that getting money for slots using your onboard account doesn't incur a fee. Also, another CK question. Can you substitute a side item that is already being offered on the menu? In other words, if you get an entrée that has a side you are sensitive to, can you order basmati rice or roasted potatoes instead, if it is already on the menu for that night? Also, is there a problem getting sauces on the side? I looked at the CK menu on the app and noticed everyday appetizers and entrees along with the offerings that change every night, but I didn't see anything like a baked potato or rice on the everyday offerings. Thanks in advance!
  3. Thanks John! I don't mind donating a bit to the slots, but to pay a 5% fee on top of that doesn't put me in my happy place for sure.
  4. Just clarifying that on Harmony, cash downloaded to slots from your onboard account is charged 5%? I heard that Harmony wasn't charging the fee. I guess I will bring cash as we are not Prime. Thanks!
  5. I have a casino question. Don't know if you spend time in there, but if you do, can you get cash downloaded to your slot machine from your onboard account to gamble with? Most importantly, is it "free" or do they charge a 3% fee for the cash? What about the table games? On other cruise lines I am used to getting cash on slot machines without a surcharge, but not so from the tables. I heard that the Harmony was allowing the downloads to slots for free, but that is not our previous experience on Royal. I hate to travel with lots of cash, so that would be great news. Plus, I would get extra credit card hotel points!
  6. Another CK question, if you don't mind. The app menus show this (I'll just pick one entrée to make it brief) - Day 1 - filet mignon Day 2- prime rib Day 3 - spiced chicken breast Day 4 - lamb loin Day 5 - grilled duck breast Day 6 - lobster Day 7 - veal chop Is this the CK order for this itinerary? I am asking because normally day 2 is a sea day and the 1st formal night in the main dining room. On this itinerary though, Coco Cay is day 2 and the first sea day is day 3. I was wondering if CK switches up the prime rib and spiced chicken breast nights to match up with the MDR formal dinner? It looks like the day 6 lobster night aligns with the 2nd formal night in the MDR. I'm trying to decide on a specialty restaurant lunch and/or dinner and want to pick our least favorite meal choices for those times. We pick healthy options at home, but on a cruise we splurge with more beef and lamb. Since you've dined at CK many times, which are your favorite nights and how does this Harmony CK compare to past cruises? Again, thanks so much for your time.
  7. Thanks so much. I have been wondering about the JS situation. We are very flexible with our dinner times so am glad to hear that the CK manager works the JS folks in. Happy belated birthday! Enjoying your live review.
  8. CruizinKittie40, you will enjoy the temperature change in Alaska. Bring layers and you will be fine. The scenery is amazing. Enjoy your cruise! Sorry about this, but just have to say......Roll Tide!
  9. Following along. We will be on Harmony with this itinerary next month. Unless our Royal Up bid is accepted, we will be in a JS. We will try to get in to Coastal Kitchen for dinner as often as we can. If you have the opportunity would you ask if JS people are getting reservations fairly easily? I know it depends on how many Pinnacles are onboard and how many full suites are reserving, but certainly there must be a "normal" success rate for JS reservations. Much appreciated. Enjoy your cruise!
  10. How much do you usually tip? I will have to be pushed onboard for the first time next month.
  11. Hope that you and your family have a wonderful cruise!
  12. Carnival is starting to offer paid upgrades now. I actually like the way they do it. Under your booking they will offer an upgrade for a set dollar amount and tell you the exact cabin you will be getting.
  13. I find it a bit fascinating to think about the upgrade scenarios and how they optimize their profits. It is obviously a money maker because all of the cruise lines are participating now.
  14. If you are on the same sailing as we are, then that is strange that my JS upgrade would be the same as your GS upgrade to OS. We got a good price on our JS during a flash sale. The 400pp upgrade cost for a GS would still price out nicely for us. We are going to bid, but very happy with our JS so no problem either way.
