  1. Can you please find out when RCI is planning on banning smoking in the casino? Hope it's soon - well maybe not since I'll spend more time in there then which I know will not turn out well😬
  2. After repeated issues occurred after adding a CC in the online check in we went to cash accounts on our last few cruises. No issues. No worries. No hassles. RCI cannot handle technology. They should just go back to the old manual CC swipe machines with the carbon copies πŸ˜πŸ˜‚
  3. Love Book of Mormon so much but can you imagine the line-ups at guest services after that showπŸ˜³πŸ™„πŸ˜‚
  4. There's been no mention of Mercedes Lafluentes on a ship since she left Mariner in February (for the CD convention I believe). Is she no longer a CD with Royal Caribbean?
  5. Right, and whether it's a suite or not. We've booked either longer cruises or suites in the last 3 years so that's makes sense.
  6. I don't know but the last few cruises we've booked our deposit has been $450 per person. Our current exchange rate is approximately 1.35 so $333 x 1.35 = $450 (someone posted $333 so that's what caught my attention). Also, just before I posted the comment yesterday I just happened to see a post on one of the social media boards with the same details as OP - it was eerily similar circumstances with the deposit, the same tone and "never again" stance. The poster also had dog breeding stuff on their profile which was mentioned here and they were from Canada. It all seemed to add up but it could've been a huge coincidence, of course. The post didn't last very long and is no longer there. I don't know, this whole thing makes no sense to me and I've invested way more energy in trying to understand it than I should have. I got sucked into the black hole 😏 πŸ˜‚ πŸ™„
  7. I believe the OP is Canadian and our deposit is around $500 CDN per person
  8. YES!!! Just reading through this thread and finally got to the end and I've been saying this in my mind since the beginning. Had the cruise been booked as refundable in the beginning I'm 99% sure the cost would've been $600 or more higher than what they paid. This is all for not. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot - OMG I can't even.......πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ
  9. Using 4 24 hour periods is better IMO especially on longer cruise. Doing it this way you can have wifi on 8 different days (partial days). Example: sign up for one 24 period on day 2 at 2pm and have it until day 3 at 2pm. Then sign up day 4 at 2 pm and have it until day 5 at 2pm etc. If there’s port days in between we can use wifi there. On shorter cruises we may just use 2 48 hour blocks. It really depends on the cruise length and itinerary. And you cant combine both coupons and put 4 days towards one package.
  10. And some airlines are currently juggling more equipment swaps due to the 737-max being taken out of service. Airlines who have many of these are struggling to maximize the fallout.
  11. Totally agree with you and that's what I was trying to say. When I booked a guaranteed on Ovation I did the same as you with a 5d balcony gty and we were assigned to deck 10. I only booked a gty on this class of ship because I could pick a minimum guarantee as I would not be happy with an obstructed balcony on these ships. I think the OP needs to get more info on what she has for gty. It should not be a guarantee at all as she did not book one to begin with and she should be able to pick another cabin now. I would demand that to happen.
  12. That would really concern me because if it's just a balcony gty then technically they could put you in a central park or boardwalk balcony. I'd be getting that fixed for sure. You should request a 3 way call with your TA and RCI to sort it out. No hiding anyone's "lies" then if there are any.
  13. What type of guarantee do you have now? Is it Oceanview guarantee, Neighborhood guarantee or just balcony guarantee? And what was the exact category you paid for?
  14. We you by chance on deck 7 aft of the elevators?
