  1. Will we be allowed to take a kettle on board or will it be conficated? if we are not allowed to take our own is it possible to get a kettle in the room?
  2. We did the 2 SPB tour and found it excellent. There was 8 or 10 , cant remember , in a mini bus much better than the ships mega tours. agree that you should not book an evening tour on the first night it is a long day. we got to see so much but it never felt rushed and I think we did a couple of things which the big tours dont do. Lunch at a pie shop where the locals eat and a trip down the escalators into a subway station, which was like a marble hall complete with Chandeliers . On out return to the ship on day 2 we were met by one of the company directors thanking us for choosing SPB. Totally recommend SPB
  3. Thanks I have rung Cruise 1st and they said it had happened to other people, becasue we are part of a block booking . They said it will be OK at checkin .😊
  4. I have just printed my seapass and the C and A level does not appear on the document or even in my edocs. when I try to add my number it says it is invalid. But my RCL C and A account is showing the correct level and number . can anyone confirm that the information is held in the bar code and I will not have an issue at check in and on board.
  5. Dont get too excited the continental breakfast is usually just a tray of danish pastries, if you are lucky.
  6. Yes i remember those days . Diamonds only got wine or beer in a separate room no snacks. one of our group was D+ and she used to go across to the D+ lounge and bring back plates of snacks.😊
  7. On a topic somewhere I saw a flyer for an $89 10 drink card which could be purchased on boarding. I have done many RCI cruises and have never seen this on sale on boarding. I dont want to buy the drinks package because I am Diamond and will get drinks during the happy hour and will pay for any drinks after that time . this 10 drink card would be useful. Anyone seen or bought one of these?
  8. On a recent NCL cruise we had to attend the naughty room to collect our luggage, they had found my kettle and this was not allowed. We did get it back on the last night. what experiences have people had with being summoned to the naughty room on RCCL ? what had they packed which was not allowed? Did they give you the item back on departure?
  9. We are seasoned cruisers with RCCL, Celebrity but contemplating an Caribbean MSC cruise and have a few questions. I have been reading the reviews and they have raised a few worrying points. are announcements in 7 languages? is smoking allowed inside the ship? is the Buffet closed in the evenings? we did a disastrous Costa cruise some time ago and found these , amongst other things , spoilt our enjoyment. thanks
  10. Careful what you post on Facebook groups. I was bumped off the group for the Indy TA on 26 october for mentioning the meet and mingle and posting a link. Someone else was bumped for trying to organise a slot pull. if you post something that admin dont like they just remove you but don't tell you why.
  11. Dont hold your breath re getting an upgrade based on your C and A status. we are Diamond + and have never been given an upgrade.😟
  12. Please can you post some photos of the cruise compass showing what activities there are during the sea days thanks
