    Disney Kids club

    This exactly. It certainly doesn't hurt to ask. Last year we had a family member with us who was 5 months away from 13 and they let him in to Vibe. That same cousin later in the year, less than a week prior to his 13th, was turned away from Vibe.

    Points Reallocation for 2020

    I can see why they are changing it, I don't agree with it, though. For year we have booked to Studios for 8 guest total while using less point that a two bedroom. It was a pretty good gravy train of maximizing points. And shifted the Treehouse Villas to be more in line with grand villa at SSR...

    New pricing on transfers and food

    On Sunday of this week, the non-platinum guests in my group at Palo received a $10 discount on their tickets. That may be because it was booked at $30. I had no clue about the price increase so seeing $40 minus a $10 discount threw me off. On that note, I feel like Palo Brunch has gotten even...

    Celebrity Edge in Key West

    We saw that, too. That’s definitely curious. In other Key West news, how about Silversea damaging a dock the other day? It sounds like that pier will be out of service for three months.

    What are they waiting for?

    I thought that at first until it clicked that the lifeboat was yellow for DCL instead of orange for others.

    What are they waiting for?

    One of the Starboard lifeboats needed to be hoisted back up. You could see it powering across just as Dream dropped lines and began moving away from the dock. Why was the lifeboat down? Got me. Maintenance I would assume.

    Shuttle from Port to Alamo

    This can sometimes work in your benefit. This past May, between a Fantasy and Dream cruise, we rented a regular sedan (Corolla, Focus, ETC) and they could not fulfill it. The nice associate apologized that the vehicle we selected would not be available to rent. Without us even having a chance to...

    First look at the new ships!

    Slightly larger life boats

    Permanent week option

    And there is the link I was trying to find.

    Permanent week option

    They have guaranteed week offerings. If you choose you do not want to use that week at your home resort, you can then use the points at a different resort or a different time. The guaranteed week is only for the home resort you purchase at. If the point cost for that week goes up in the future...

    Seasonal prices differences?

    With it sounding like two permanent ships going to Miami, I am hopeful that that will ease some of the demand put on just having two on the East Coast during Summer. All hope may not be lost year. The third new ship seems to be the Wild Card of where it will end up. So we may end up with 5...

    DCL makes bid for second private destination

    I agree. Personally, I cannot wait to pull up to the pier and get ready to get off. The beaches there and a drink in my hand will absolutely amazing. We have agreed to book the inaugural for one of the three new ships and will probably book the first cruise to the new island.

    And the hits keep coming for Carnival

    You are 100% correct, Chuck. The company makes it clear how they disregard the importance of basic maintenance. Look around at any of their vessels while they are in port with you. Look at the hull, railings, wood, trimmings, funnel soot and items along that line. A good rule of thumb is if they...

    And the hits keep coming for Carnival

    If they are older, and they know it, then they should have a maintenance plan in place to accommodate the additional labor and material requirements to ensure proper operation. You are 100% correct. A major issue such as this is not an issue that would just happen. There is a clear negligence...

    Nassau or no?

    If @Herdman is a DVC Member, then signature spa services are 10% off whilst in a port. We typically do a hot stone or bamboo massage on Nassau day. Staying on vs getting off is not a black and white question. Would I book an excursion? I take a hard pass. Would I hop off and walk around for an...
