  1. I'm curious which ones have decided to push back? Atlantis has already started sending the "we're back!" emails so I wonder if they've had to backtrack already.
  2. Hey everyone- we're coming to a cruise on Royal hopefully in November. We've been away for a while, and since our last cruise, we've gotten married and I've legally changed my name. Is there an easy way to update my name with RC? I've tried emailing them, but obviously there's more pressing issues for them to deal with. I'm hoping there's some simple way I can do this.
  3. I'm not sure if we paid for the 4 Perks or not, but they have a line on the booking confirmation at a price, and we did pay above what just the taxes would have been, but it wasn't anything like sticker price. That's why I think we may still get more OBC from MLife as well. As much time ($$$) as my husband spent in the casino to earn it, I just want to get what we're entitled to. 😊 I have a printout of where it breaks down booking charges and it says "4Perks"- which I am assuming is enough if there were to be an issue down the road? I always carry a copy of it with me ever since we had an issue 7 years ago on a Carnival cruise.
  4. Hi All! New future Celebrity cruisers booked for February. My husband did the booking this time so I'm just trying to make sure I understand it all. We booked as an annual cruise benefit, but he also added the 4 Perks to our reservation when they were doing a promo to include them for cheap. I went into my cruise planner just now and it was telling me about my 300 in OBC, and was promoting the drink package. Now, my understanding was that the 4 Perks would include that. Is that just a standard thing everyone sees and I shouldn't be worried? Also, we had this from his MLife status from this past year's casino spend/play (not a status match) and I believe he is entitled to some extra benefits there- including OBC. If we have it from the perks, does anybody know if you'll still get it- as in get both sets of OBC? Last question (for now) will the casino status match to an equivalent level where he can get those perks? I have read some old threads and I got myself extra confused trying to figure out the Captain's Club vs the Blue Chip Club. The Casino board is so quiet, so I thought I'd ask here- sorry if not the right place.
  5. Thanks for the answer! Followup question...if you're in a Star or Sky level suite on an Oasis class ship, do you get the cokes/waters and stuff in the room for free as well? or is it a mini-bar like every other room on the ship? Sorry to ask so many questions- just happy to get clear info for once. We're (hopefully) going on HotS in an Owners Suite at Thanksgiving and its our first Royal, and my husband is a HUGE diet coke drinker!! 😊
  6. Do suite lounges include soft drinks like cokes for all day too?
  7. Hello All- First time Celebrity cruisers going in February and booked on Edge. We were able to snag the last open Sunset Veranda yesterday but now I'm worried about its location. We are on Deck 12 in the smack dab middle of the boat. Looking at the deck plans, it looks like there's a restaurant above us? Is this an awful and noisy cabin? I can't find anything for this room exactly (12266) and I haven't found a whole bunch about the neighboring ones either. I appreciate your input.
  8. Hello everyone- getting enticed by these great prices but can't find a key piece of info. Is the cancellation policy still the same for the future months if I booked today? I'm considering an October cruise but if life got crazy (not covid crazy, just regular life stuff) would I be able to cancel? I know other lines are doing "cruise with confidence" and "lift and shift" but I'm not finding that sort of verbiage anywhere on Carnival's site. Thanks yall!
  9. Hi..dumb question- how do you look for it using the code? I’m newish to the carnival comp system and learning stuff all the time. Thank you
  10. Very nice Kwokpot! We're not looped in with RC yet. We do have a free cruise because of our noir status in vegas. I wonder if they'll lift the "not on a holiday" restriction or if they'll extend the booking window for those. That'd be nice! Our current offers (a getaway and a last minute offer thing) expire on 4/30...maybe they'll get replaced with ultras. Here's hoping!
  11. I guess we just didn't make the cut! We've been Carnival cruisers for a while, but we took them up on a couple offers in the last 9-12 months and I guess didn't meet what they were after as far as play but I had hoped they'd lower their standards a little. We didn't get the ultras today- boo- our last cruise was Elite and it was great. We are supposed to be going on a Royal in August, but I don't know if I should be optimistic or not.
  12. Given the depressed market, and needing to get bodies to spend on board, I would've anticipated being showered with offers for free cruises. I haven't seen much of anything yet. Maybe its just too early/too uncertain right now, but bring on the free cabins and free play! Anybody else getting good stuff yet?
  13. Hi everyone! Typically a Carnival cruiser, branching out onto RCCL...well, trying to this summer. We can check in starting today for our end of July cruise. Like everyone else in the universe, we don't know if this will really happen given current circumstances. If this doesn't go forward, we're going to request to move our reservation to the end of the year (nov/dec) and then cross our fingers and toes. If I go ahead and check us in right now in a wave of optimism will it make moving our dates more difficult? Full disclosure: we are booked under a casino offer from an outside source and not royal directly- not sure if any of that matters!
  14. We had a few low play/no play trips and it made our future offers abysmal but they didn’t cancel our already booked cruises. My advice is that if you even think you might want to do a premier/getaway book it before you don’t play. We thought we were done with Carnival hence the low play but we ended up having such a nice time we’re really regretting not booking more when our offers were good. Now we’re trying to get back into their good graces.
  15. Well...its back again and now valid until April 9 (was March 3). However, if you click on the offers, it just keeps showing the dealers choice offers on the calendar. Seems like its struggling today.
