  1. If they do, I think a lot of people will try other cruise lines. The DL is one of the biggest perks for most people. Also, if they take it away and only have the 3 drinks on the sea pass it's still a bad thing even if some people don't drink more than the 3 drinks. It's nice and seems easier to meet people in there imo. Plenty of other fish in the sea. Maybe that's one way of skimping on things. If people don't request it it's another win for RC. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿค” Uhm, I must be missing something??? ๐Ÿ˜Š
  2. I heard that PE weren't allowing the porters to take you directly to the immigration lines anymore and they now had to wait with you. So nice of you. Just because someone does something different than you, you call them a scrooge? How classy. ๐Ÿ™„ Was this a big black guy? I read on here several years ago that there was one that was really aggressive. Many people complained. I don't remember if they later said he toned it down or he just disappeared. I never came across him but wonder if he is still around.
  3. Time to shake their hand and say have a good day. ๐Ÿ˜ธ Tips like that are better spent giving it to someone who works their a$$ off such as your room attendant or some other cruise employee imo. I have never seen a cruise worker stick their hand out for a tip. So annoying when porters do. I believe there is a sign in PE/FLL that says tips aren't required, but it's not very visible.
  4. I think it's 24 hours that you have to cancel without any penalties. You have up to 60 days to transfer it to a TA if you want to. If the price drops just call RC and they will adjust it for you. Sometimes you will lose some of the perks when repricing so make sure in the end it's worth it to reprice it.

  5. Ignore Mattj2000. He's often grumpy. If you don't want to spend to much time booking while on the ship start researching now so you have an idea what you might be interested in. The best prices are usually with the nonrefundable deposits so make sure you're ok with that. They often don't tell you this so ask if they are or not. Go over everything with a fine tooth comb before signing. What's in the contract is what you're getting so make sure whatever they tell you that it's in writing. Some of them are good and some just want that booking and don't want to spend time with the customer imo.
  6. No problem, it was just a thought. Have a great cruise.
  7. I would think so since they won't be paying any to Freeport. It would be nice if they gave people the option to donate the fees for the ones that would want to. Every little bit adds up. Let us know what they do. When is your sailing?
  8. We haven't been on deck 6, but we have been on deck 8. There wasn't any smoke or noise from below, but we were above cabins. I don't think you will have an issue with the blue deck that's off of your balcony. Just go with the mindset that it will be there and you won't be disappointed. We also usually had a decent breeze it just depends on the winds. That being said I would try to get a cabin higher up. It can also be a long walk to the elevators that bothers some people, but for us it's fine.
  9. Thanks. I'm on Allure in November so first time on an Oasis class and only in a regular balcony. The suite lounge on the Explorer only had the typical HR.
  10. Is this just on certain ships? The Explorer wasn't doing this last October. ๐Ÿคจ
  11. The government needs to have people prove that a true service animal is required. Issue them a license and have a national registry so companies can verify if it's a true.
  12. I always thought the gratuities were split among the wait staff and it didn't matter who ate where. If they were to keep track of who is eating where then they will also have to factor in how many people have the gratuities removed. I think people should let the wait staff in the mdr know if you aren't going to show up for dinner. We always did when we used to eat in there. If not then the table waits on you thinking you are running late. It happened to us and it's just annoying waiting on someone who never shows up.
  13. I had also wondered that, but he didn't say.
  14. There was another thread saying they weren't able to get a second entree in the same place. They had to go to another one for a second entree?
  15. That's what I was thinking. Why would it make a difference where you eat regarding the tips?
