  1. I am on board Allure right now. Our party had expedited arrival. We were not staying in a suite or anything else. As soon as we enter the terminal, we are escorted to a staff member with an iPad. They scanned our set sail and we went straight on the ship. We did not have to go to a counter, sign any paperwork, or take any photos. We were literally on the ship seven minutes after dropping our luggage at the curb. It really was expedited! I believe expedited arrival and priority embarkation Are two different things.
  2. This is an actual thing. After a day in Labadee we had dinner in the MDR. All the staff were dressed in Hawaiian shirts and there was loud, distorted, reggae and “island music” playing. We couldn’t even hear each chat. Granted we were seated under the speaker. I asked the waiter to turn in down. No problem he says. 20 mins later nothing. I asked the supervisor and she turned it down right away. She said it was a new thing they were trying. It was so loud and annoying. Totally ruined the ambience. Then they did the Congo line thing. The music got cranked up for that and stayed like that thru coffee and dessert. I complained again. I really hope this doesn’t become a regular thing. If you hated the announcements, you would walk out on this.
  3. I know this sounds trivial, but it’s the little things; Our first few cruises was on Harmony at Port Everglades. We embarked the ship on the Royal Promenade. It was spectacular as a first time cruiser for us and then future guests. Our last cruise we entered on deck 5 but it was by the elevators. It wasn’t pretty. There were crowds of people lined up for the elevators and didn’t have that feeling like the other entrances. Why would this happen? Is there a pathway that prevents this?
  4. I was in a similar situation. It takes time they will come. My own theory is that you achieved prime and then the casino offers start coming in the following “season” (April?). I had called and asked why and no one knew. Then when the new season started they came in fast and furious. So many I can’t even use them all. Have patience and o feel they will eventually come. Also so keep checking clubroyaleoffers. I find that’s updated well before the emails and mail outs come.
  5. I know Hooked is specialty but is it all you care to eat like the MDR? What’s the policy for most speciality venues?
  6. Does anyone know what the connection is on the TVs on Allure? Is it the same as Harmony. I connect my external device on Harmony using the remote and HDMI.
  7. Thanks guys. That’s what I thought. Canadian passports don’t have addresses.
  8. Can any one foresee a problem where your address on file with Royal and actual id don’t match? I can’t think of any. When I physically check in I show my passport and nothing else. Am I missing anything? Dave
  9. Very sad. I was just on the HOTS and was used to seeing the cast all about the ship. They seemed like a new cast that were all very close and tight. Often i saw them enjoying other shows, amenities and the ports together.
  10. The way they make them on Harmony was pineapple juice, coconut cream, and yellow Red Bull.
  11. Does anyone know the host’s email for the Harmony?
  12. Which is was what I did exactly. Checked in allmost every day after play. Their calculations were wrong.
  13. The mistake has to be made in the hosts calculations of the table games because one can see slot points on the machines. I didn’t receive any large payouts or use any sort of promo chips. Remember the on board hosts told me how many points I had.
  14. I sailed twice in November. First cruise I accumulated 1500 points. So the second cruise I know I needed 1000 more for prime since it would be last sailing for the season. I played tables and slots. On the second last day the host said I was short 2 points. No problem. I went to the nearest slot and acquired 20 more points to be sure. I went back to the host and she said yes I have reached prime for next season. I made her double and triple check. Her assistant even did the calculations one time to ensure. Now i call CR to confirm status and they say I’m short 1 point. I escalated which meant they emailed Miami. I got a response today saying tough luck. Your short a point and that I’m responsible for calculating my own points not their hosts. Their suggestion was to do a short sail to accumulate the balance. Very annoyed.
  15. Harmony doesn’t use hdmi. They use Ethernet for their tv channels.
  16. Yes. Just off the Harmony and worked for me. I bought a Samsung Universal remote off Amazon for $15.
  17. On HOTS right now. Just spoke with the cage manager and host. Both stated that the entire amount is paid in promo chips. It can never be cashed out. This is the dumbest promotion ever.
  18. So do we know if there is any condition on the original buy in amount ($2000)? Is there any requirement to play any of this? If not, you could buy multiple amounts of this, get your bonus, and then cash out the original. You then play with only the bonus. Something doesn’t seem right. I’m leaving on Harmony next Sunday and is very tempted to try this but a little reserved. I called Casino royale and even a supervisor couldn’t answer my questions. I’ve posted this in the casino forum but no replies yet.
  19. Where can one see the brochure you mention? If would like to take a look at that!
  20. Saw this in my cruise planner. The fine print is so vague. Has anyone tried this yet?
  21. You also get private free golf cart shuttle in Labadee and access to the better BBQ. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
