  1. I was told there is no way Allure can dock anywhere in Galveston without the new terminal. I am booked for 3/2022 so I just hope Allure will be doing 7 day cruises from somewhere else in FL if not TX. I have a great cabin at a great price and don't want to rebook.
  2. They need to wait for the new captain. Captain Kate on Celebrity Edge was due to leave when cruising stopped. Her relief is coming from.Greece and cannot get a flight. So she and her cat stay.
  3. This is great news. I hope it is the full dry dock and not just the Azipods. Any idea??
  4. My niece had a friend no show and they didn't do anything other than refund port charges and the shore excursions and drink package which niece paid for and they gave her OBC back. We tried to get last minute replacement but couldn't. You can do that up to 24 hours in advance.
  5. I was on the shorter cruise before yours and the Diamond lounge was never crowded. I went almost every evening and found a seat. I liked the outside area as well.
  6. The daybeds are all grouped together at the corner of the beach. Just arrive at the same time and choose 2 next to one another. anyone can stop by. There were six of us but only 2 of us bothered with the wrist band and our attendants never said a word. This was at Adrenaline beach under the zipline.
  7. Thanks for the recommendation. we are starting to research tours like this for our Christmas cruise on the Allure next year.
  8. I have a daybed booked for January so I will report back. Last time I got a pretty good deal on a Cabana at Columbus Cove and loved it!! Trying something different this time because I'm with a different group of friends and they are ziplining so I'll be close and can watch them.
  9. Thanks for the laughs. I have never eaten a minion but I can imagine they would be CHEWY. And taste like bananas 😜🤣😂🍌🍌🍌
  10. Kids who are D+ by 18 retain that for life but only have their own points. This is clearly stated in the FAQs along with spouses having the same status regardless of someone having less points which many people clearly never bother to read. And kids get basically no Diamond benefits. And I have had to remind the LA or DC every time we have cruised that they should be getting a gift. They should get the internet and a photo. There is no reason these are not kid friendly gifts. It's so lame. If you have kids, ask a bartender to swipe their seapass to see what they have as it likely depends on the ship. It will not be presented on a letter in the cabin like it is for adults.
  11. The 7 night cruises on Majesty out of New Orleans are less than a Cabana ($800 or less for Oceanview). And most of them stop there! No way. The water park might be worth it for older kids but the littles get a free water park and the pools are all free and look very nice. I splurged on a $200 Cabana at Labadee once. I cannot imagine paying those prices but sure many will!
  12. We learned on our last cruise to ask for the savory bites to get them every night. I love those bread sticks too. I am looking forward to trying the new vegan menus as we have been following a plant-based diet recently (as a dietary reset and for weight loss reasons) and I am curious what they make! I have enjoyed learning this new way of cooking and have been losing weight as a result. We are pretty strict though, and don't include any oil or salt. But still looking forward to trying new things.
  13. If you haven't already purchased internet, it will ask you when you log in if you want your free day or your credit for a package. We have rarely used it lately since they started offering the 4 device deal for under $8 a day per device. We had a 10 night cruise last and we could stream Netflix or anything in our room in the evenings.
  14. Many guests have been told cash tips given directly to crew cannot be kept. That they still have to put it back in the pool? Is this true?
