  1. I really like the Concierge Package, got one every cruise I've taken with BPL.
  2. Here is what the new website shows, do any of you have ideas on this: THE OTHER RULES FOR EARNING POINTS REMAIN VALID: ON-BOARD PURCHASE POINTS: 2 for every dollar spent on board or on costacruises.com before departure. FLIGHT POINTS: up to 500 as a lump sum for expenses incurred for Costa flights. 3 YEARS OF VALIDITY:from 15 June of each year, only those points accumulated during the previous 3 years are considered valid. RATES EXCLUDED: cruises purchased with the Basic Rate or other promotional rates and/or special discounts do not allow you to earn cruise points. Members who book with a group rate are awarded cruise points based on the cabin they select; double or triple points will not be awarded, even for advance bookings. Corporate Rates and students groups also do not qualify for cruise points. For these rates, however, you may still earn points through on-board purchases. https://www.costacruises.com/costa-club/general-conditions-2019.html These new guidelines make this by far, the most restrictive cruise loyalty program in existence.
  3. Costa as shown above is out doing MSC; making their program just like the airlines, where low fares don't get status points, and only apply for three years.
  4. Costa is screwing long time guest big time. All status points last for three years and only "Classic & Premium" category reservations qualify for status points. CostaClub: new General Conditions 2019 Starting 1 January 2019, the guidelines for earning CostaClub points will change. By choosing the Total Comfort Rate, Classic or Premium (or other future non-promotional rates), your points double or even triple depending on how far in advance you book your vacation. Choosing a Suite comes witch even more advantages! Here’s how it works: THE OTHER RULES FOR EARNING POINTS REMAIN VALID: ON-BOARD PURCHASE POINTS: 2 for every dollar spent on board or on costacruises.com before departure.

  5. https://www.bahamasparadisecruise.com/solo-cruiser-landing-page.php Information on singles pricing
  6. Lets see after 700 days at sea, Royal gives you a "free cruise" as well.
  7. Here is what I found from the website: No Single Supplement Fees We are proud to be the only cruise line to offer no single supplement for solo cruisers on all of our cruises in an Ocean view stateroom. That means a single person in an Ocean view stateroom only pays for one person - and not the double occupancy price! https://www.bahamasparadisecruise.com/solo-cruiser-landing-page.php
  8. BPL sells its cabins on a per cabin bases, thus no single supplement, and thus in theory you should get the full point amount. They do need to work on the wording of this, as there are two different policies at work. Example, do Comped casino bookings earn points?
  9. I wonder if URComped casino comped trips count? If the casino gives you free voyages, do you get tier credit like with other lines?
  10. I have used URComped several times, ask for my Host Tyler. Say George sent you.
  11. Fly out of San Jose, Delta will get you back to West Palm, as will Spirit, with taking the Virgin Train or Uber to WPB.
  12. I contacted my URComped Host, about this unexpected booking. Thanks for the heads up, I would love to go on it!
  13. The Freewinds was a Commodore Cruise vessel, before becoming the OT 8 training vessel. Considering you have to have spend $500,000++ to reach OT 7, it may be the most exclusive ship in the world.
  14. The Empress does have an amazing two story multi-tier dining room, while Majesty has none, but just two basic dining rooms.
  15. I disagree with this. 1. The Disney ships have Remy which is 5 star and i would say my dinner at Murano on Celebrity, let alone Queen's Grill on Cunard.
