  1. Hi all! Thanks to your wonderful input here we have decided to try Allure out for the summer (hopefully we are all cruising by then). We currently have an Owners Suite booked on Harmony, so we will be moving our booking. Upon our research, the crown loft suites are available for less, and seem to be more impressive than the Owners Suites. Is this perception correct? Any pros or cons to the Crown Loft suite? On a lark, we asked our TA to check into the panoramic Owners or Grand suites as well. I'm sure they'll be way out of budget, but man are those cool! So opinions sought on Owners vs Crown L
  2. Thanks everyone! One piece of info I inadvertently omitted was that we are in an Owners suite. Any impact on those amenities?
  3. Hey everyone! We are on our third attempt to take our 1st RCCL cruise. We had been scheduled to go on Harmony in July, and then November so now we're trying to reschedule yet again for NEXT July (2021). The bummer is that Harmony is being moved from PC to Italy/Spain when we're looking to change our dates and Allure is being put in its place. Are we going to be missing out on a lot by taking that boat? If so we can still cancel and get a refund, but we have been so excited to try something new (we've been Carnival cruisers for a while). I know they are considered the same "class" (Learned that
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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 f
  8. 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!! 😊
  9. Do suite lounges include soft drinks like cokes for all day too?
  10. 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.
  11. 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!
  12. 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
  13. 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!
  14. 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.
  15. 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?
