  1. I live close to Meyer Werft and saw that you can do a tour there. Since I am sailing on Odyssey I would like to see the ship being build. Does anyone know what would be a good month / period to go do the tour and be certain of seeing this particular ship?
  2. I got alot of information on the Shorebee website. I gives you lots of tips per port that you are visiting. Do you know where you want to go?
  3. That website is actually how I got into this 'mess'. So confusing and also confusing to see which travel agent is reliable and good with follow-up and customer service.
  4. I have never had agents bidding against each other with OBC before. Apparently I missed a good bargain last time 😞 They are saying that when there is a price drop, the OBC will also lower. Is this normal? Seems a bit unfair to me, because then the agent benefits more from the price drop than I do, right?
  5. I am in the process of booking a cruise with RC and have some agencies bidding against each other with onboard credit. Now I was under the impression I could use this in my Royal Caribbean account online to purchase a drink package for example. I did so in the past when booking with OBC directly with RC. But apparently I can't do this with the OBC from the agent. So can someone explain to me how this works? When will I get it and how can I use it? I can buy a drink package on ship but the price would be much higher.

  7. Can I book under US rules if I use an American TA? I live in Europe. Thanks!
  8. Hi, I am looking at a specific RC cruise for 2021 that I am looking to book. They now have an offer of BOGO 60%; I have an adittional offer of 480$ OBC from a travel agent. This seems like a good deal to me; but I haven't booked many cruises. What sort of discounts can I expect during wave season from RC? Should I wait a bit longer; or is 60% the best I'm going to get? I was looking for a deal with beverages included but have already been informed RC doesn't give those away very often.
  9. I am looking at the Holy Land Cruise of RC on September 7th 2021 on Odyssey of the Seas. It visits Jerusalem. On their own site RC noted that a visit on Saturday would mean Sabbath in Jerusalem and most things closed. Much to my surprise the itinerary is planned in such a way that exactly on Saturday the ships goes to Jerusalem. Don't understand why they would do this but curious to your experiences with this cruise and/or visiting Jerusalem on a Saturday.
  10. Hi, I am relatively new to cruising. Have sailed Symphony of the Seas in 2018 which I loved and Jewel of the Seas in 2019 which I enjoyed, but didn't enjoy the ship itself much. For 2020 I am looking a new cruise ships and came across Enchanted Princess of Princess cruises. I had never heard of them before but the ship seems since. I am just wondering, in comparison to Royal Caribbean (my only experience with cruising) how dus Princess compare? Is it a similar level of service?
  11. Thanks for the tips and compliment! I will look at P&O cruises, they were not on my shortlist.
  12. Hi, Summer of 2018 we took our first cruise. Royal Caribbean Symphony of the Seas - western Mediterrenean Summer of 2019 we went on Jewel of the Seas from Rome to the Greek Isles. We loved Symphony of the Seas. Especially : Solarium: large and quiet. Entertainment at night: much to choose from, high quality of shows. We like Jewel of the Seas but: solarium too small; way too much noise. Enterainment at night: very little choice. Low quality. So now for 2020 we are a little bit lost on what to do. We live in Europe and do not fly. So that limits the possibilities to Europe mainland and UK. We would prefer a route we haven't done before, but ship has to be 'better' than Jewel. We like the itineraries to the North (UK, Norway, Iceland) but are hesitant because of the weather. From your experiences what ships and/or routes would you recommend? We are 2 adults mid 30's, no kids. Thanks!
  13. On cyber Monday this cruise was 2609 pound per person. Now it's 2659 per person. But this small increase doesn't compare of course to 14 days deluxe drink package.
  14. On the UK website there is an all inclusive sale going on. We are looking at a cruise for 14 days and my husband always gets the deluxe drink package (I get refresh since not allowed alcohol). So this seems like a very good deal. I see there is a 75 deposit. Does this mean if I cancel more than 57 days in advance I will only loose 150 pound deposit? And should I change bookings will they transfer the deposit. This is for a cruise in 2020 so hesitant to book so early bit this seems like a great deal. Also, I booked my 2019 through a US travel agent. Will they be able to get me this all inclusive special even though we've already booked and it's an UK offer? Asking here since they are closed for Christmas. Thanks!
