  1. Their tips are included, that is one reason why the gratuity is higher for suites. I think it amounts to $5/day pp Happy cruising 🌊🚢🇺🇸🌅
  2. If all you want is a spare bath get a suite near the spa and gym. Many times I would use. the facilities in the gym to shower. They provide towels, soap, shampoo and etc. Happy cruising 🌊🚢🇺🇸🌅
  3. Exactly. If you logically think about it the Butler’s pay is tips. Do you think that they would work for the daily tips from one person? Happy cruising 🌊🚢🇺🇸🌅
  4. Personally I think this is a perception. Before ever being in a suite we stayed in AQ. Passengers thought the attendants were those that were among the best. One time we had a rookie that was their first time ever on a cruise ship Since being in suites that were always SS1 or SS 2 the service was just as good as the one time we were in the RS. There were times in a SS2 that the Butler was a almost annoying as he tried to do everything for us. He seen us walking with a drink in our hand he wanted to carry it and asked what was. We told him a Woodford Old Fashion. After
  5. I don’t know what the on the rest of the page but I think it pertains to purchasing the drink package. If you purchase a drink pack the price stated doesn’t include the 20% gratuity. If you upgrade from classic to premium it is $10/day plus 20% gratuity being $12/day. happy cruising 🌊🚢🇺🇸🌅
  6. If it is 1 : 1 ratio than a suite with two passengers would have to have 2 butlers. 🤷‍♂️ Don’t think so. You need to get back to that PCC and ask if he would guarantee it and refund you cruise if it wasn’t as he said Happy cruising 🌊🚢🇺🇸🌅
  7. Why can’t you cancel and then rebook? Happy cruising 🌊🚢🇺🇸🌅
  8. Thanks for the heads up and sharing your experience. Hopefully you still were able to keep your original rate Happy cruising 🌊🚢🇺🇸🌅
  9. We have cruises booked into 2023. We booked them when prices were reasonable at $200 to $250 /day pp With perks in either AQ or SS. Now i see prices are $300 to $750/day pp for AQ and SS. We enjoy being on a cruise but we can’t justify paying $600 to $1500 per day for both of us. We can do a nice land vacation with more.choices and less restrictions for a lot less. Even the lower class cabins are still way too expensive for what we would be getting. We could stay in Key West at a nice place, have all the drinks we want, dine in nice restaurants, free internet
  10. We had the premium drink pack and I did it because it was 1/2 off probably because lack of interest. My wife didn’t do it but was allowed to be there with me. She sampled the drinks. The BT made 5 very full and potent drinks. It is a lot to drink in one hour if you aren’t a drinker. It was a Mojito, espresso martini, Hemingway daiquiri, and I don’t remember the other 2. The Mojito was the weakest as far as the type of drink. The others consisted mostly of alcohol. The cocktails are basically a choice of the BT. It was a fun time, entertaining, and a chance to meet others that
  11. I love the AI. It is the only way I could get the drink package without my wife telling I don’t need it and it isn’t worth $70/day and I do agree with her, but when it is included you have the choice of paying the price or don’t cruise. Cruising isn’t a right. it is like the resort fee that some hotels and most casinos charge if you use the facilities or not. It is a method to generate. more revenue. I think the cruise lines are doing this to get some money from those that frequently cruise and don’t spend a dime extra while on board. Happy cruising 🌊🚢🇺🇸🌅
  12. I like having that window washing ladder in front of the balcony. I hook a hammock to it from the balcony and enjoy laying in it overlooking the sea below. 😱🤷‍♂️🤗 Happy cruising 🌊🚢🇺🇸🌅
  13. I think 1552 has the bed by the balcony. 1554 has it by the bath if it makes any difference to you. Some prefer the bed in one of the locations over the other. happy cruising 🌊🚢🇺🇸🌅
  14. At that time It was more about who I was with instead of the cruise. And I guess it is still the same today. It doesn’t matter where we go, it is still about the person I am with Did you move to Texas during the oil crunch? The joke at that time was for the last person leaving MI to turn out the lights. Many from MI moved to Texas at that time and then many moved back because things went bust in Texas. My cousin was one of them. What goes around comes around. Happy cruising 🌊🚢🇺🇸🌅
  15. Was on the Bob Lo Boat 56 years ago cruising on one of our first dates together with the love of my life.🥰 Happy cruising 🌊🚢🇺🇸🌅
