Sorry about the migraines, been on meds for 20+ years, rarely have one. When we retired I tried to go off the meds but the BP went up so guess I will be on meds, at least no migraines.

Jen--are you recovered today?

Story time--Ken and I met when we were 13, started dating at 16 (when my parents would allow)

We got engaged in Dec '66 and set a date for Thanksgiving '67. Ken got scheduled to be overseas with the Navy at the time of our wedding so we got married in Sept '67 instead. We were together all of 6 mo. the first 1 1/2 yrs of our marriage.
That's our story.

Feel pretty okay, today, just a little tired and run down. Went to the chiropractor and she gave me some vitamins.

Started writing to him in the fall of 1965, we finally met when he came home on leave in February of 1967 and were married in November of 1967. Oh, and I still have ever letter he sent me packed in a box up in the attic.

It was a good game and the Buckeyes had their chances. A missed field goal and 2 two point conversions would have given us 5 extra points and a victory.

Thought you might all be interested in this post by pmshirl who got an email today from RCI with this information.......................

Radiance 9-14-07 Polar Bear Express "Special"! - Page 4 Onboard_Credits
Radiance 9-14-07 Polar Bear Express "Special"! - Page 4 S

Radiance 9-14-07 Polar Bear Express "Special"! - Page 4 S
What can I use onboard credits for? Below are examples of how you can spend these credits onboard*.

Spa Services
Beverages
Internet Café
Photos
Shore excursions
Specialty Dining
Onboard shopping
Bingo
Casino


*In order to redeem onboard credit, items must be booked/purchase onboard via your SeaPass account. Onboard activities reserved on royalcaribbean.com cannot be paid with onboard credits. Onboard credit will appear on your SeaPass account typically by day 3 for sailings 7 nights or longer; for sailings 6 nights or less, the onboard credit will appear on your SeaPass by day 2.

For all voyages beginning on and after January 1, 2009, all complimentary/promotional onboard credits will have no cash value.

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. Royal Caribbean credit card points can also be used to apply a credit to the onboard account. Onboard credits that are offered through special sales and marketing promotions, such as this one, are considered "complimentary/promotional onboard credits". GAP points applied to Groups are also in this category.

D the hoodies sound nice, the design is really cute.

Well it didn't take long for them to wipeout the OBC uses did it. I noticed that tips were not included and of course that is one thing I use my for. Of course I do use it for Specialty Dining if the ship has it and the Casino but then how I am able to use it if they charge me 3% for getting cash in the Casino to play with, seems to me that is double dipping on their part. (charge me for getting cash and then won't allow to take what's not used up by end of cruise). Mad

I really hope that you can use use the OBC for tips because that's what we were planning to use ours for. I mean we wouldn't have them if they hadn't given us back the fuel supplement. Oh I almost forgot the stock OBC. We usually don't spend much a few goodies from the shops, a couple drinks, maybe a few pictures. They really are starting to get rediculous.

Feeling the same way, have next cruise, stockholder and TA credit on my next two cruises which is really nice but golly. Guess I will have to use the spa for an overpriced service. I know I know at least I have the obc to use the spa.

pmshirl posted this back to me when I asked about the Casino..........


Patty: You can set up an account with the VIP program ( I have never done this), sort of like linking your checking/savings account through the casino for advance money! Assuming ( like I said I have never and will Never do this) it is your money that is being withdrawn from your bank, there wouldn't be a 3% charge!

I have been sent the application to apply for it, but No TY!Radiance 9-14-07 Polar Bear Express "Special"! - Page 4 Biggrin I just take enough of my own cash to cover my addiction! LOL! This is the 1st Casino cruise I took them up on, I have had many offers, but they were all for 4-5 night cruise's. This is for 11 nights. so here I go!Radiance 9-14-07 Polar Bear Express "Special"! - Page 4 Smile

As far as tips go................you were never really supposed to be able to use your OBCs for tips................but they never made an issue out of it. Now...........I am sure that there will be a coding system used to differentiate between their money and yours.

I just told Jim about the change and he said that now he will be visiting the "spa" to get those special neck massages that I can't seem to give him.

Maybe now I'll get that wine package....................OK Jean, I need your help!!

Di, I would think that the FS should be yours to spend which ever way you want. You did not ask them to refund the FS in the form of an OBC. If they don't, I would raise holy h*ll.

I don't believe that you will be able to use your Shareholder OBC for tips.

Evening ladies!

Diane, I LOVE the Polar Bear embroidery pattern and if you are sure you are willing to take us on, I'd love to hire you to add it to a shirt!

OK, 7's... not too many in the Rayfield history. As a matter of fact we are "minus 7". We got married on May 6, 1989. I thought it would be cool to be married at 7:00pm, so our invitation could say "5-6 @7 89". My mother wouldn't hear of having a wedding starting at 7:00pm though, so we were were minus the seven! LOL

I have a chunk'o OBC for my cruise next month and since Ray isn't joining me it's ALL MINE!!! Wonder how I will spend it! LOL I've never had a problem yet, so don't think I have trouble starting now!

Susan, I need to run a test of the bear first. Sometimes they just don't look as good on fabric as they do online. But, first my machine needs to go in for yearly cleaning and maintenance. So as soon as we get back from the cruise I send you a sample and you can decide if you like it.

I think they'd look nice on denim too!

I guess it's a good thing we drink. Embarassed We once had a $3.57 credit, on a short Monarch cruise. Other than that, we have had no trouble using up OBCs.

No 7s here, really, other than meeting in the 70s...
