Ok, I am back from the cruise. We did indeed get the Yacht Club Benefits. So, I guess the shore side reps do not know how it works.
We ended up in cabin 16023. We usually do balcony cabins. The other cruise we took on Divina on a forward facing balcony cabin that was very nice. This was our first Inside cabin. It was very small cabin with a shower that was tiny. I think the restaurant was above us because every night about the same time there was a lot of banging and moving around of items.
A few notes:
Carry some tip money for the porters when you get there. They were pretty vocal about getting a tip for moving your bag 5 feet to put on a cart.
Try to keep up with the butler when getting on boarding. They move fast and you are mixing in with the other passengers. There were about 10 - 15 in our group going up and I don't think everyone made it.
On lobster day (Thursday) get to the Yacht Club grill early. They ran out of lobster or quit serving pretty quickly. We were limited to 1 each. There were people from other parts of the ship eating there also.
For breakfast, the Yacht Club grill is OK. For a little more variety, the buffets had a few more choices. We never tried the Yacht Club restaurant for breakfast.
You can get items from the Venchi bar included. I had a banana milk shake and many marrochino's. The hot chocolate was very rich. It was like drinking hot fudge, very thick.
We played the slots and charged to the room. There was no extra fees added.
Gelato bar was also included. I had a chocolate covered bar that was pretty good.
Don't waste your time going to the Yacht Club grill when it is raining. The overhang is too small for a spot for the tables. We were up there when it started and they moved the tables up next to the buffet. It would have been great to sit at one of these. You didn't even have to get out of your chair to refill your plate.
If you can't decide between the Butchers Cut and the other restaurant that list the filet mignon, we were told it is the same steak. It was very good. The sides were not. We would do the other (maybe it was Ocean Cay) since we could get crab cakes there.
For more varieties of beer, the sports bar had more.
They do allow a certain number of people into the Yacht Club from other parts of the ship. I am not sure if it is a day or week long pass. There were quite a few that got in using the glass door on the top deck by tailgating. It got quite crowded at times.
That all I can think of now. But, we had a great time. If anyone has questions, I will try to answer them.
