IDK if any wine packages will be offered. It is reasonable to think and hope so, but no way to know until we board. (I was hoping to find this out, along with other things, on a BVE on Dec 6, but Princess cancelled us out when the ship was delayed in dry dock).
There may be a way to "diddle" with the credit card process. Until I finish my order, I won't be able to advise. Nonetheless, they do have Customer Service, so I hope I can pay over the phone. Or, at the very least, have the wines pulled and boxed and totaled up.
Right now, my shopping basket has too many bottles in it and I need to pare it down. I need to get that done as some of my selections could get sold out on me.
My almost final report is that I was so busy leading up to the trip, I only completed my 24-bottle order today. Not only was my previous edited cart lost and I had to start over, but the promotions changed. I do not recall seeing a limited promotion for 20% off case or more - but I guess it was. I had even spoke to someone on the phone at the time. Anyway, suffice to say, I was not getting any automatic discount today. So I phoned in and did get 20% off Old World wines and upped my ratio of them. Then the rep said she was going to give me 10% off for the rest. I thought I was getting both - but then she re-priced it and I got 10% off everything, including a couple of "7" prices.
Anyway, I also wanted to pay with a gift Visa for $200 US I need to use up and the balance to my regular Visa. Nope, couldn't take two payments, so I didn't actually have to see if the Canadian address was going to be an issue. So, she sent it all over to the store, asking them to have it boxed up for tomorrow. I will pay at the store and then hopefully use two different cards. I can ask again about the pricing and see what they do there. I certainly do wish my other cart was not lost in the process as I had 20% off everything except "7" prices.
We'll see if it all fits in two boxes as well. I have time to deal with it tomorrow between arrival and dinner. Hope something works for you, CIANA
