  1. I get tired of both mailings and email the Offer Wonderful Savings that are neither. They just keep moving the target prices.
  2. Be assured, they will NOT lose money. Just a shell game.
  3. Like the napkin idea !! As I watch the staff " Disinfecting " the handrails, I notice they only wipe the top of the rails while our hands wrap around to the underside. Need to do better. Hope the dishwasher temperature is maxed out, hot tubs have extra chlorine, and cabin stewards are spending a little more time in the rooms(especially on embarkation day).
  4. Excellent review-- lots of work. Hope RCI reads this.
  5. People die on cruise ships. That why they have a morgue, Just think of all the Medical Emergency call you hear each cruise; not to mention the ambulances portside when you dock.
  6. Maybe finding out if they are rotating crew from China and the like without screening.
  7. I agree. Its a waste of time to post "sorry you're not feeling well" or "looking forward to this cruise" or" Hope it works out for you" etc; just to get posting numbers up.
  8. Anyone on or just off the ship that could advise of the officers. Especially the cruise director. thank you
  9. Just advised my T/A to cancel my upcoming Anthem cruise. I'll try another ship or NCL. Maybe to keep your status (at every level) you must cruise at lest 6 days a year (or every 18 months).
  10. The Star had propulsion problems in Jan of 2017. We missed half our ports as it only had One engine. Then it had NONE after leaving Melbourne causing us to be Tugged back. Missed all of NZ. So bad we had Australian News helicopters circling and news crews in ports. Abandon ship
  11. in 2017(?) I was on the disastrous NCL Star debacle where both engine failed. The Brits on board were surprised how little protection {refund} US passengers as opposed to them. Apparently British and maybe EU consumer protections are better.
  12. We were on 33 day cruise from Hong Kong to NZ in Jan 2017 I recall. The STAR missed about Half the ports as it only had one engine(azipod?) working. The issue was not new. We learned it was ongoing back to April the prior year. They offered us $200 per cabin.......what an insult. After almost daily protests in the atrium and Australian TV coverage, they sent the area VP out to cruise with us. The passengers were so angry he left after one day. We did everything but" loot: the ship's store. Videos on U tube. Passengers were on their honeymoons, bucket list cruise or possibly their last cruise Ever due to age or health. THEN both engines failed and were adrift in the Tasman Sea. 3 Tugs had to come rescue the ship and take us back to Melbourne. Now they couldn't Guarantee an on-time arrival in NZ to make or flights; so were jumped ship. By now we were being offered more and more up to almost 100% credit and FIVE years to redeem it. The officers and front desk crew gave us bad information; some said Lied. The Hotel Manager said "What do you want me to do---ROW? Using our last of the credit next year and then back to ROYAL.
  13. Thought it was just me. 50% off second guest after they raise the prices. Peanut under the shell scam.
