  1. I had requested this several times in the past from different cruise lines. Answer was always the same....you pay the full price of the cruise AND you cannot disembark the port you want unless they already have a customs setup for that....which they never did.
  2. We live by San Francisco. Used to think about moving but now to old :O) Just enough energy left for cruising !
  3. We love Alaska. We live in California so it is one of the easier cruises for us to take. We have been going every year for decades..
  4. Just a bit more than a month out & only 4 signed up for the Meet & Mingle. We need a minimum of 12.
  5. sorry about this posting... Do NOT know what happened...it took a prior post & put it on my new topic...
  6. sorry about prior posting.. Anyway... Does anyone know if MSC currently offers this service in Miami ? This is where...for a small fee... they take your checkin luggage the night before you disembark DIRECTLY to the airport & have it checked in. You do not see your suitcase until you arrive at your home base airport. thanks
  7. We are slot players on every cruise we go on. I would say moderate in the fact I do not play high machines but frequent the casino a lot. We get offers from all the casino clubs but they are usually ones we cannot/or choose not to use. Limited to certain ships/certain sailings and certain category cabins. We got an email offer from the MSC casino club last month for 30% off a cruise and some casino cash. Only catch was it had to be booked by the end off this month. Time was running out so I called the casino club a few days ago. I was really quite shocked when I was told ANY cruise ANY category cabin and I could use ANY travel agent I wanted and then they would adjust the price. That was definitely worth some research. So I had a YC3 cabin held for an October cruise with an internet agency we had used many times before. They were offering prepaid gratuities and $500. OBC. I called MSC & gave them the booking number. They not only took off the 30% but also another %5 percent for our black card status...we got that with their status match promotion with our Royal Caribbean card. Since the price was lowered so much, the agency readjusted their OBC to $300. because it is based on the final price of the cruise. They still included their tips. Needless to say, I just put the down payment on to firm up the booking.
  8. The YC2 cabins on Divina are amazing. YouTube them... i was shocked to see on the Seaside they reclassified them and now have no yacht club access. We had booked those many times. Wanted to try seaside so booked a YC1. Thought them very small. The 2 so-called closets looked like an after thought. They were very small. One had the 2 robes in it and there was only room for about 2 other items. but.....we did have the full yacht club experience which is what it is all about. We were lucky enough to find a YC3 on the Seaside available this October so we snagged it. Can’t wait !
  10. We have one booked in Oct for $3100.pp
  11. We are much older than you but also on an Alaska cruise this July. We do an Alaska cruise every year. I do not recall seeing many children which means either there are not many or they have a good kids program that keeps them busy. I do not think they have a dedicated kids space/area like other cruiselines so not sure what they would do.
  12. Thanks but we are only interested in the bus.
  13. We will be on the Mariner this July. We are NOT staying at the Hilton where the Regent bus picks up but can be there at any designated time. This transportation is NOT included in our booking. I have conflicting info on if we can still sign up for it. I hear it is $129.pp Does anyone know the time it leaves ? thank you
