  1. We’re not sure if it was because we are Platinum loyalty level or because we had a mini suite - think probably the latter. We also had booked club class dining - it was very good this evening, in a nice section of the dining room, no wait to be seated despite a queue at the entrance & an extra main course of fillet steak on the menu.
  2. Just thought I’d post a few first impressions of our return to cruising today. We arrived at the drive through testing centre at about 11.40, our boarding time being 12.15. It was very well organised & after queuing for about 15 minutes we were swabbed & then directed to the drop our car off at the ship. Again very well organised by CPS. As we’d printed off our luggage labels we just handed our cases over but there was quite a queue of people waiting to collect luggage labels. There was a long line to enter the terminal but as we had priority embarkation we enquired at the head of the line if there was a separate queue or entry& the staff member said we can’t really do priority in the current situation but you can go straight in & join the queue inside. There wasn’t really a queue inside & we were quickly checked ( passports etc) & then sent to sit down while we waited for our test results to come through by text which took another 10 minutes or so. We then went to the check in desks & were given our medallions & went through security & onto the ship. We were on board by 12.40 so an hour all in 👍. The cabins were ready but we stopped off first at Bellinis for a drink & the International Cafe for lunch. Everything was great & the mask wearing was only required in the elevators, food lines & in entertainment venues although a lot of people wore them walking around. The weather was kind & we spent a lovely afternoon on deck in warm sunshine & are now enjoying our pre-dinner cocktails ! We are so glad to be back 😁 !!
  3. Thanks for the info. We’re still happy to have a small upgrade anyway !
  4. We have just been notified that our bid to upgrade from a balcony to a mini suite has been accepted & are very pleased. However our cruise doesn’t sail for another 3 weeks & we had also put in bids for a penthouse & for The Haven so my question is, is there still a chance that we might get a higher upgrade nearer the time or is this upgrade final ?
