Wow!!!.... where will it all end? affraid RCI is really putting it too us. Can't imagine what'll be next. One drink per person per night in the CL? I heard they're thinking about a coupon system. So are they going to separate our OBC by category to be sure we don't use their money to pay tips? That's fair enough I guess. If I have any left by the end of the cruise can't I just take it out through the Casino and pay the 3%? Of course the best fun will be making sure I do spend it on anything I want right ThumpsUp I used to make a game out of seeing how low I could get my Sea Pass account since after a while there wasn't much I wanted.

Di I love the design and will want to have something for sure if it works out.

Good morning from the left coast. It's wet and windy and 48 here in Portland, the snow melted so now we have floods and landslides, but fortunately not where I live.

It took about 5 hours to read all the posts! Work kept interrupting Wink . I was really happy to see that everyone has decided to do this cruise it will be an amazing reunion and I'm looking forward to it. I've already started thinking about what Christmas decorations to take for the cabin (Christmas is very big in England so I'll have a mini tree).

I had a look at some of the threads about the trip, but there are so many, I just got confused. I'll try again tonight when my brain is fresher.

Just so that you know, there are lots and I do mean lots of cheap dollar stores along with street vendors in Manhatten. So don't cart many decorations along we'll buy what we need when we get there. Hard to tell what they'll be charging for luggage in 2010?!?

Morning everyone!

I just wanted to add, do not order the Christmas tree thru gifts and gear, it's a hideous fake tree, that you could get at a craft store for about $5. I think they were charging $50 or $60 for it! Sheesh!

Good morning everyone from a very wet, icy, slushy part of the country.

It's off to the dread grocery store today.................

Jean, any suggestions on what wine package I should purchase on my April cruise? I like a sweeter wine.

Have a wonderful day everyone...................be back later.

Good Morning Ladies,

Cold outside today. Jimmy Boy drooling is pretty much dried up so must have been something stuck in his mouth. Thank goodness, he does have an appointment on Thursday for his third in a series puppy shots.

Have signed up for the lose weight get fit thing on Sparkspeople and have not statred off with a good report as I am still eating Christmas candy, food so and so forth but I am doing my walking. Okay so it's has only been two days but that is two more then last week. lol!

Jean #2 good to hear from you. I hadn't even thought about Christmas decorations. Hmmmmmmm. I like the idea of waiting until reaching New York because of weight.

Off to get ready for the day as I have appt. for nails and toes. Wishing everyone a fine day. sunny

Ginny, throw out that Christmas Candy!

I'm getting a slow start too, I went to join the gym last night, and the price went up. Ugh!! I still can't go out and walk, because of the heel spur. So it's back to the bike or swimming.

I am having a hard time giving up bread and pasta since the cruise! Darn them! Evil or Very Mad

Hi Guys....you need to go to:
https://cruisefreekforums.forumotion.com/royal-caribbean-f12/royal-caribbean-2010-christmas-cruisers-poll-t1813-30.htm#36599
And vote for the Christmas activities you'd like to see.
Someone suggested a Secret Santa and to do ornaments...like Zoo Themed...Cute!

Di...The embroidery design is adorable and hoodies sound great...hopefully in both red or green....I think the design would show up well on those colors too.

I will bring a table top display for our cabin...it is all stuffed, so lightweight...a tree, 4 reindeer and a table scarf....easy to pack as well.

I've ordered the pattern so when we get back from Voyager I'll do it up on different colors of fabric.
We'll have to see which looks best. I think it would look good on navy too!

Nancy, Are you in Florida now for the winter? Somehow I missed that?!

Patti- You were asking about wines? Get at least the Platinum package, there is a good Riesling from Washington State on the Platinum and Diamond package. I think it is Chateau St. Michelle?? It's pretty light and fruity without being overly sweet.
You will have to ask Jean about red wines. I am never good at picking reds.

Thanks Jen................I'm not into the red wines. Like the whites and blushes.

Hi All. It has rained non-stop for 2 days here. Thank goodness we are far enough south for a rain event. Up in Phila. they have ice and sleet then further north in the Poconos they are buried. It is cold and damp so I have my new handy-dandy fireplace going and it's so cozy in here.

Patti my TwoCents on the wine question. I like a sweet wine so I chose a Pino Grigio or a Reisling. If you remember the wine I chose at dinner in Chops it was Chateau St Michele Reisling and I remember you liked it. It is available in the wine package. I'm sure Jean will have other suggestions too.

Didn't think about decorating my cabin for Christmas but I will now.

Thanks for the link Mar...........I went and checked it out.

The only problem I would see in having it at Portofino is that they have limited seating capacity at any one time. The Specialty restaurants are basically the same size on Radiance class and above.

When we did our group dinner at Chops on Radiance we had to guarantee them so many, which I don't believe will be a problem with this group............but they will also limit the number. They will have a set menu most probably offering 3 entrees.

Thought you might enjoy this..........a lot of you know Rick (rubbrrick).................he posted this today on Merion Mom's Live Live Live thread...................


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Just got off of the phone with Charlene of the D+ desk, asking for clarifaction of OBC's

What she told me was that as far as Fuel Supplement OBC goes........it goes with all other promotional OBC's and has no value. It is a USE it or LOOSE it proposition.

Except:[size12]"...Complimentary/Promotional Onboard Credits This onboard credit is not transferable and cannot be redeemed for cash. Guests who do not use the full amount of the onboard credit during their purchased sailing, will not be refunded any of the remaining credit. This offer cannot be combined with another OBC on the same reservation. Onboard credit is issued in U. S. dollars only.

Onboard credits that are purchased pre-cruise through Shop Gifts & Gear, Royal Caribbean Gift Certificates or through the Groups Program are considered "purchased onboard credits". These are bought by the guest or for the guest by a friend/family/company. These can be redeamed for cash.

[/size]So, you still can go to the Casino and get $200.00 worth of chips, go play, and return with 200. in chips, and they will give you the cash, and this will go against your OBC. Don't forget you will pay 3% when you cash it in.

Also........one other question that I got answered today........all Gratuities can come from OBC's!!Radiance 9-14-07 Polar Bear Express "Special"! - Page 5 Biggrin

There remains some confusion of the Royal Caribbean credit card.

So...........any unused OBC's are lost unless the rules of the OBC's that were pre purchased thru Gifts and Gear or programs that are considered to be purchased aboard credits.

Amazing that they would not refund money on the Fuel Supplement, but won't honor it as a purchased credit.Radiance 9-14-07 Polar Bear Express "Special"! - Page 5 Frown

Rick
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Then truffles2 posted this right after..........................

DH had talked with D+ today also (to make sure our OBC's got there-they did) and he said they sounded unsure about anything. He asked for a clarification and they told him they would find out and call back. So far, no return call. DH also asked how they would determine which credits they were using up first and they had no idea--said he was the first person to ask that.

Sorry affraid . I don't see where the fuel supplement is just like any other OBC that was my money I paid not a gift from someone like a TA, RCCL or from stock. I considered that part of my cruise fee. Am I wrong? Of course it was a CSR and we could call another one and get a totally different answer.
