  1. no, Capt Kjetil came on Nov 5 (?) and is off Jan 14. Even if my start date is wrong, you're boarding in the middle of a rotation so that gives the chart a cushion for the correct start date.
  2. and as you note, your experience is at least 1 year old. I was there this year, and this year, is what we experienced as noted in my prior post. I suppose I could have tried breakfast in Chops, but the gold card from the concierge had no printing on it, just our names, at a quick glance the host would know we weren't in a suite. I didn't want to chance being denied and thus embarass myself and DH. Even after GS printed us gold cards, I didn't try as the letter clearly stated my 2 benefits, ice cream and suite access
  3. when DH and I book an interior we request to have the bed separated, it gives you more room. Besides, after being married so long, who said we HAD to sleep together. Spices things up when you can honestly say "my place or yours"
  4. I just asked the same thing, could be a medivac cuz ptztv shows Cozumel as Indy's next port of call.
  5. It's 9:52 am and on ptztv port cam I see Independence pulling in at terminal G. Does Indy do a Miami port of call or is it for a medvac.
  6. we have the B & J Suite on Liberty Feb 2019 and had 2 cards. A regular blue one and the concierge had left us extra gold cards for access to the Suite Lounge, it had no charging ability so we had to carry 2 cards. I was checking our balance on Day 3 at Guest Services and the clerk looked at my blue card and said "you're supposed to have a gold card". So he printed new gold Seapass cards for us. Now we had 3 sets. The gold cards Guest Services gave us were for room access and charging and the gold card from the concierge was only for access to the Suite Lounge. Our welcome letter for the Suite states we only get the daily scoop of ice cream (per person) and access to the Suite Lounge. You only have to flash your gold card to get access to the reserved seating area in the theater. I also used it to use the reserved deck loungers by the pool (nobody checks anyway). No breakfast in Chops/Giovanni's, no Suite cocktail party, and no priority debarkation to the dedicated Suite/Pinnacle line at customs/immigration.
  7. no, Capt Gjerstad is on. The first name with the notation "started rotation" is the current master on a ship, started rotation means when he started his 8-12 week rotation. The second name underneath that has no notation is the captain on vacation. My start dates are always suspect, with my current information, Capt Kjetil is on until Jan. 14
  8. that's what a pinnacle told me when I started fretting. I thought I read it in here, but now I don't see it (even with my glasses). I thought I read it somewhere in the Crown & Anchor section after signing in. https://dlxffu6hwewxp.cloudfront.net/cas/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/CAS_Member_Benefits_Grid_APRIL-2019.pdf

  10. I can't remember the details but we did the El Yunque rainforest tour with airport drop off. I can't remember what the minimum departure time was in order to be able to buy this excursion. And is SJU one of those airports that you can't check your luggage until 2 hrs before departure?
  11. ty for the correction, he may be going on vacation at the end of your voyage
  12. On one of our cruises this year, during our Meal with an Officer, we had the Food & Beverage manager hosting our table. I asked about the drink card and he told me it's only offered if bar sales are down. The ship must have been making money because they never offered it during our cruise.
  13. Ty DB. Empress may not be right, anyone have a correction?

  14. on one of our longer cruises 3 yrs ago, I bought the Premium Drink Package and they didn't make my husband buy. Then 2 years ago, upon boarding, at the display, the bar server said I could buy and husband didn't have to. And I've bought the 10 drink card without husband having to buy, but the drink card is meant to be shared anyway.
