  1. please do not read my posts if you dislike the script or few capitals in the messages i post, i now understand why so many do not comment or many have left CC due to the few that are ready to criticize the color or subject matter. i graciously accept suggestions when it pertains to a matter of importance, not my color choice or script Worry about more important things in life HAGD
  2. well i do like RED, white and blue.....guess it's American and being Patriotic, so guess no need for your response to my post.
  3. my 3/31/18 - 3/31/19 PRIME awarded UNREDEEMED cruise expires march 31/2020 did b2b in Nov 2019 and achieved my 3/31/19 - 3/31/20 PRIME status with UNREDEEMED awarded cruise expiring 3/31/21 had planned on 1 more cruise before the 3/31/20 cycle ended to achieve Signature as i only needed 2200 points, since i average 7000 points per week sailing wonder what Crown Royale will offer to keep me gambling when ships finally do sail....πŸ€” Figure more important and pressing issues........only time will tell as Royal and all cruise lines have so many headaches that will result in both favorable and unfavorable results for us the loyal cruiser.....πŸ€”
  4. In the past have received them on Grandeur, both non-alcohol & alcohol frozen drinks, at the VCL bar and other bars with blenders, think $$$ tips may have been a factor πŸ‘
  5. we have sailed in numerous suites aboard Grandeur including GS 8508 with no disturbances overall our experiences we find the starboard forward suites much quieter than port forward suites. this past Thanksgiving on our B2B we had port forward suites GS 8012 & OS 8004 and both were noisier than what we had experienced in the past. enjoy your sailing aboard aboard GOS πŸ‘
  6. just off Grandeur on a b2b two weeks ago, smoking areas: Deck 9 pool deck PORTSIDE Deck 5 PORTSIDE Casino (smoking areas marked with signage) Enjoy your cruise aboard the Grandeur πŸ‘
  7. great thanks for the replies....πŸ‘ Bob since my questions are answered you can close this thread if you want.
  8. bump to the top...... Anyone currently on GOS Who is current Hotel Director ? Who is Casino Mgr. and Casino Host ?
  9. trying to find out if John Denton is still HD (Hotel Director) on Grandeur or has he rotated to another ship ? am hoping he will be aboard for our upcoming B2B embarking 11/16/2019. Also anyone know who Casino Host and Casino Mgr. are on our upcoming B2B sailings ? thanks in advance for any replies.... Cheers, Scott
  10. thank you Andrew for the fantastic review, really appreciate the info & details about ship and your excursions. wishing all safe travels πŸ‘ Scott
  11. at the Nassau Colonial Hilton 2 years ago, our ship GOS along with 4 other ships, very crowded and LOUD, service subpar and very slow, they no doubt were overbooked, no refund was available since we (2) checked-in and had 2 beers each according to the staff, never got our food so we went back to ship and enjoyed a nice lunch in the WJ will say prior visits were great positive = was able to get full refund from AX
  12. Andrew as you have said numerous times in this thread........"ONLY TIME WILL TELL"......no truer words can be said, πŸ‘ So many behind-the-scene logistical scenarios playing out (hopefully providing positive outcomes for all) 😟 Assumptions and speculations by the media and even a few here on CC truly fail to convey the reality of the catastrophy that has already taken place in the Bahamas and leaving the many many many still in harms way πŸ˜• Prayers for all whether asea or ashore and not let us forget the thousands of first reponders also at risk God Bless Dorian's victims and their families Amen πŸ™ Scott
  13. yes 3-4 years ago, friends crashed a drone and in their search for the downed drone, on the northwest side of the Cay, they encountered a peacock, they even produced a pic as proof when we did not believe their story
  14. a FYI for all regarding Casino Royale....who never receive Casino Royale invites and Casino Royale special offers they are ELIGIBLE FOR via email or snail mail. we are US based going on 5 years in suites with RCL we average 4-5 cruises a year and currently D+ on our way to Pinnacle (i only play table games - Blackjack & Roulette...no slots) since the initiation of the new RCL casino program and awarded their PRIME tier 1st year despite having nearly 32K points, Casino Royale had me at 23K points, so no Signature Tier despite me questioning their points total πŸ™„ (yes we received the POST casino free cruise certificates when disembarking every cruise) i nor my fiancΓ© also a Casino Royale Prime tier member (she plays both slots and table games) have never received ANY Casino Royale offers, no Golf Tourneys, Tournament Invites or even Summer Sizzles via email or snail mail when the CasinoRoyaleOffers.com site appeared we were FINALLY able to see our free annual Prime cruise, and all cruise certificates (Post Cruise) we had received...NO other offers or invites over the years and many phone calls with Casino Royale no one on their end could figure why we did not receive any offers from them. so just Saturday last week i had a 3-way call with my TA & Club Royale Supervisor and questioned the never receiving any offers (such as the many offers others post here on this and other CC threads) <BTW my TA deals with only Casino booked cruises (any cruise line)> during the call i was told by the supervisor that our Casino Royale accounts were "CODED NOT TO RECEIVE ANY EMAIL OFFERS"....hmmmmmm😳 well never did i ask for our accounts to be that way and we wanted to receive all offers or we would sail another cruise line.....so 5 days later i received the Summer Sizzles offers via snail email and many offers and invites via the ClubRoyaleOffers.com site well guess RCL listened and wants our business....booked B2B (7 dayers in a GS) only port fees and taxes, and we both still have our free annual cruises remaining to use before 3/31/2020 and other non-expired certificates we have earned. So for the many Casino Royale players from the (US - Canada - Europe...etc) (IF YOU USE A TA) make sure that you let them both (TA & Royal Casino) you want to see ALL offers & discounts you are entitled via email or snail mail and are (NOT CODED only TA) as we were. To All.......Good Luck in the casino.....when in doubt about the casino program ASK your TA/Casino Royale both together as i did via a 3-way call i requested my TA to do. and hopefully you will get the answers you've been seeking and some great cruise deals....πŸ˜€ Cheers, Scott
  15. Andrew i suffer from the same and quite often while asea a bout with gout will arise, have found eating strawberries or cherries to be helpful, so each morning i get a small bowl of sliced strawberries and with my dinner dessert i ask for a small bowl of sliced strawberries which all servers have provided when i asked. Lastly my doc told me wearing flip-flops does not help the issues so i now were Keen Uneeks as they provide some support and are really comfortable meshed shoe that are made in many colors, not cheap but worth the comfort. BTW great Live thread and great pics, thanks for sharing with us. Cheers... Scott
