  1. I am getting an OBC from HAL - I see a list of what it can be applied to, the list does not mention grats. If I have no other charges, will it be applied to the daily gratuities? thanks!
  2. We recently stayed at the historic Riverside Hotel - loved the location by the Intercoastal Waterway and Las Olas Blvd. We did a short cuise on the Carrie B (adjacent to hotel) and those houses along the water were just amazing - a very plesant day of our vacation.
  3. It may be too late to make reservations in the 4 MDR's - are you select or traditional? We were select, a group of 6, that made reservations far in advance. On our recent sail I think we saw folks trying to get changed - not sure how it was working. There seemed to be sort of a "select section" that we rotated thru but there were often empty tables so it would seem to be folks could be accomodated. FYI - you can get the special selections from the restaurant adjacent to where you are seated if you ask. For example, in Cyprus, you could ask for one of the special selections from Cosmopolitan. For our group of 6, things went very smoothly.
  4. Well I am seeing free grats and for verandahs and suited, free drink package, at least on the May Europe sail I am looking at (this is on the HAL website) Seems like a pretty good deal to me.
  5. So I found better deal on a May cruise - I have little HAL experience in price machinations - I am booked with HAL, NOT TA. If I call to get re-booked on the new deal - will I keep the cabin I have? will I keep the air I have booked thru FlightEZ? (this is SUPER importatnt to me, as prices have increased for the flights) I assume the deposits / monies paid will just be figured into the new booking verification? Thanks! One more thing - my current booking has an OBC from HAL. If I do not max out that OBC, does HAL put it back on my credit card at the end of the cruise?
  6. Oh I meant the HAL flight partner - FlightEZ? - Yes on one ticket and early morning arrival to AMS so several more flights to VCE thru out the day. I am leaning towards just leaving it alone - and as someone said, it could change again before our trip in May! Thanks for the input.
  7. So I booked a flight from the US to Venice that has a connection in Amsterdam, very pleased with price, has since increased by hundreds of $$$. After booking, the connection time was changed from over an hour to 50 minutes - seems tight but booking did not change. On the airline website, it advises the connection is tight and I MIGHT miss next flight. Soooooo - leave it alone? call EZAir? call airline? I really don't want to lose the price I got. I am NOT arriving DAY OF cruise so there is margin for rebooking. Anyone have experience like this? And if I miss the connection, I will deal with airline? or EZAir? we do not usually have cell phone service once we leave the States. Thanks for any input.
  8. Well if the movies are "fleet wide", I can tell you some of the ones just offered on Edge. There were probably about 10 free movie choices and then more you could purchase. The free ones that I can remember - The Hustle - this is a remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and I LOVED it (also loved DRS), Yesterday - very nice, lots of Beatles music, also the new Star is Born. Several I had not heard of that looked interresting - Hampstead? Lying and Stealing, The Mule (I'd seen that). Rocketman, Lion King and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood were shown several times in theatre or up on deck but not as in-room options. I do wish they would post somewhere ahead of time a list of titles, times and venues for these selections. We wake up very early - like to watch movies. I was pleased there was a decent selection of choices.
  9. I'm not much of a shopper - I hate the sale scrums that used to clog up that part of the ship but it would be nice to be able to buy a reasonable priced T shirt - I read on board they are $90? I don't think so😐
  10. Do they still have the Saganaki (melted cheese) appetizer in Cyprus? I've seen it on some sample menus but not others. Was the sea bass quite good - I was hoping for a whole roasted fish (like in Greece😉) but I guess it's filets. Have they happened to have the whole roasted fish in the OV cafe that you know of? They did that one day on our last cruise - I think the day after we left the Azores? and it was delicious. Thanks for all the info - we board next Friday.
  11. I've been doing this lately (also a first time FlightEase user) and you can pull up your flights, then go to the "change flights" tab - see what comes us and if you don't want to change, just close down and keep the fights you have. I too was thrilled with flights I was able to reserve for Premium Economy altho to he honest, I'm not 100% sure what class I am in on some of the flights - I think some are actually Economy Comfort, not the Premium Economy which is MUCH better but on the most taxing flight, it is truly Premium Economy.
  12. So I was looking over the deck plans in anticipation of my upcoming cruise - is there onlt one hot tub? I see one in the solarium - we usually like a soak several times during our sails. One does not seem enough for a ship this size.
  13. By the way - where is the elite happy hour now that there is not a Sky Lounge?
  14. Thank you for starting this post - we are getting ready for our maiden voyage on The Edge on Nov. 15 - I think with you? Anyways, following the various posts thru out the year has made me a bit uneasy at times as to if we are going to like The Edge - we are long time X cruisers. I'm especially interested in where is a good place to play cards during the day and which bars are usually quick to walk up to and get a drink. I'm really looking forward to the 4 MDR's - we made our select dining reservations quite a few months ago. It sounds like reservations are being honored and each of the different dining rooms is a pleasant experience.
  15. You've got to be kidding?! That's rough. But if you've only given them $25, how are they going to come after all the rest of that money?
