  1. I have tried that and generally you are lucky if you get an extra ring. I did ask the MD in charge of lido about why it is so hard to get extra onion rings and he had no idea and said we should be able to get extra, but apparently the people who run Guys Burgers on the ship do as they wish.
  2. We have gotten the coupon book a few times and have never used it. BOGO for specialty restaurant but we prefer to meet our table mates and waitstaff the first night so do not use it. Last cruise we did give the BOGO to a friend made thru the roll call.
  3. Can get onion ring but they do not like putting on two or more for some reason. Rings better than the burger
  4. Bus system is excellent, would buy daily pass for each day you are there, can do bus and water taxi.
  5. I would ask a cruising friend for recommendation. That is how we got our last two, they do seem to leave suddenly.
  6. Aruba, Curacao and Amber Cove would be beach days for sure. San Juan take a stroll to the old forts
  7. And typically he will leave before the end of the cruise, that happened twice when we did a journey cruise with him.
  8. Just off Sapphire princess and they had a shelf marked take one leave one. So left one and took one. It did have a very small quantity of books in there for lending.
  9. Royal class has best buffet we have ever seen on a cruise line
  10. Freeport for sure. If we ever went back it would be a port day for us
  11. Looks like he will not be doing any journey cruises. When they announced the Hawaii cruise out of San Diego last year he said he expected to be on it. Nice fellow but if you book a cruise because he is on it be aware his plans change all the time
  12. When you have a problem a good pvp is invaluable to resolving it
  13. We have had that when there was only a couple of Diamonds. Once we are the only Diamonds so had very interesting private hour with captain on his bridge.
  14. Only other way is to cruise a lot and become Diamond. They will often offer as diamond benefit tea with the captain on the bridge
  15. We will be Elite for the first time on our upcoming cruise this week and see no reason to tell the world. Happy to just enjoy the benefits
  16. Steward does not have corkscrew anymore have to get it opened by room service. Silly isnt it
  17. Went downhill when the porterhouse was discontinued. These days not the superb dining experience they offered when the steakhouse was first introduced
  18. Let me clarify. Did not get quote from TA before getting pricing from cruise consultant on ship.
  19. I figure if I just transfer booking to TA, the TA may not give us a good price when he did not originate the booking and wants to be sure he is competitive
  20. For years we take the bus to the Waikiki beach. Very nice shaded spots where you can take your towel and lay out on the grass for free. And come and go as you please. Last time they would not let us have senior pass going as I did not have my drivers license with me to prove our age. Going back driver let me on for a buck.
  21. We got pricing on an Asian cruise from the onboard consultant and it was higher than what our TA quoted. Showed it to him and he immediately told us he had no authority in terms of pricing
  22. But taste will depend upon how much water is added.
