  1. It is first come first seated. We were very disappointed because we usually have to wait a year before we were served. The joys of booking in advance. It s very nice and a step up from Blu. They also serve lunch on embarkation and sea days. The wait was very short and it was mostly because the hostess was seating someone and we had to wait for her to come back. Still around as we didn’t die from starvation by having to wait. I have heard that they will will give you a pager if very busy or you want a certain table. We were never given one. enjoy happy cruising πŸŒŠπŸš’πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸŒ…
  2. You may smell some weed if lucky and have a great evening or night πŸ€— happy cruising πŸŒŠπŸš’πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸŒ…
  3. Your TA should give you a confirmation. Go on X web site sign in and enter your reservations if needed and then hit manage my reservation. The cabin number should show up hope this helps happy cruising πŸŒŠπŸš’πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸŒ…
  4. Why didn’t the TA Five you a choice or recommend one? Your TA apparentlyisnt give you the service you are paying for. Then on the the other hand before I book a cruise I look at the cabins available and pick a few a fun then tell the TA the one that I want. happy cruising πŸŒŠπŸš’πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸŒ…
  5. Not to get into politics but many people receive free stuff and make a life style off of it. Years ago on a TV show the host was interviewing a group of 5 year olds and asked them what they wanted to do when they grew up. One young girl said she wanted to draw. The host said that is great, you want to be a artist. She said no she want to draw, you know get that check every month In the mail ( she didn’t know where it came from but it was free and they lived off of it) Sad. The only job job a politician has is to get re-elected and they will do whatever it takes to get the votes. Happy cruising πŸŒŠπŸš’πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸŒ…
  6. I always ask the rep where they are located. And many are in a central state and have never cruised. We carry on a nice conversation and they thank me for my info. If if I get someone from a foreign country I respect what they are doing and amazingly can understand many of them and they are often very helpful. They aren’t any different than the employees on the ship. They are human beings trying to earn a living The blame is on X for not giving them the proper training and updating them with the latest policies and info, and their supervisors that they may have to consult if they don’t know the answer.

  7. Then you are interested in getting something because you asked or are curious and don’t want to miss out if they do. Can appreciate your intentions as you paid for a cruise and want to get the most out of it and if they give why not take? We don’t want or expect anything and that is why we never mention it to anyone. We like to celebrate by ourselves and others like the attention. The whole intent is for everyone to have a great time, make them feel special and want to cruise again, but I don’t feel anyone should get extra special privileges just because they are celebrating something. Everyone paid the price to cruise for the category they chose and should have the same service or attention. Yes I am in Michigan. I was born here, and I am still here and love it. .

  8. I can see someone in CC going to the MDR and being told that the lunch has ended and receiving a coupon for lunch there on the next sea day with priority seating. Happy cruising πŸŒŠπŸš’πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸŒ…
  9. What is the big perk that CC offers? The β€œfantastic” embarkation lunch in MDR. Why would they schedule anyone in CC to arrive at 2:00 when that service is no longer available? happy cruising πŸŒŠπŸš’πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸŒ…
  10. I worked in the auto industry, We would go on strike. The company had a figure that they would offer and would not exceed it. They would make the initial offer. The Union would reject it. They had to justify their existence. We would sit out for weeks and the union would say this is the best we can do, take it. It was no different that the original offer except the pie was cut different to make it look as if we were getting more. We were now out of money and wanted to go back to work and were β€œhappy” about the great job the union did by getting the pie cut different πŸ™„β˜ΉοΈ As the OP posted the total package is about the same no matter how you cut the pie. The difference is how you want it cut If you find a good TA that gives you great service stay with them, just beware that some charge for any changes including changing cabins in the same category We feel everyone has paid to cruise so why should any one get something extra because they are celebrating something Happy cruising πŸŒŠπŸš’πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸŒ…
  11. Basically many passengers are celebrating something. That is one of the reasons they are cruising Seriously do you need a cheap basic cake? There are too many other nice deserts to choose from. We always sail during our anniversary, birth days, and etc. We never tell anyone and smile as we see others basking in the attention of the employees singing to them. We don’t need Chuck E Cheese’s to enjoy our special occasion and don’t expect it. We feel everyone has paid to cruise so why should any one get something extra or treated special because they are celebrating something? That is us and every one has their own expectations. We don’t expect anything and therefore are never disappointed or feel slighted. Happy cruising πŸŒŠπŸš’πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸŒ…
  12. We looked at that cabin and decided not to choose it because the only light is the door. We like to lay 8n bed and be able to look out at day break and not be in a cabin. That is like a inside. Plus it is considered a SS1 and it cost more. happy cruising πŸŒŠπŸš’πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸŒ…
  13. Do a search for Daily’s. Many will post the daily sheets for their cruise. Try doing the ship name and daily. The activities and shows no matter what ship will be pabout the same except for longer or shorter cruises happy sailing πŸŒŠπŸš’πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸŒ…
  14. We had Capt Leo. Alex, Demetri, Kate and .... they have all been very good and visible. I think that Capt Kate stands because she is a female but the other Capt are always in the public areas when not on β€œduty” on the bridge. Capt Leo told me that he loves being on a cruise ship instead of a cargo ship because he can interact with the passengers instead of looking at shipping containers The Captain is a bonus but what affects us the most is the CD. Don’t want to mention any names but the worse for us was the female that always talked about her shoes and how busy she was the male that always mentioned his socks. Both try to be a celebrity and bigger that what they are instead of a CD. if you complain to either about the entertainment, activities, or noise level they claim that they don’t have any control as it comes from the main office. if you praise something they take credit and say they are responsible for everything except the production shows.
