Hi! Hotels in Barcelona are expensive so have you thought about a Hostal. We have used these on our last 2 cruises out of BCN & providing you do a lot of research, as there are more bad than good, they can work out very favourable & in the main centrally located. Google hostal grau. Six of us used this one last time & all were very satisfied......... Wilba.

Hello Wilba gave a tip about Pre paying your gratuities which also covered "My time Dining" about 4 weeks ago and at the same time he mentioned Pre Paying for the wine package to also save money, as he has for his next cruise from the far east. But typical I can not now locate the post to give you.... Anyway do you sail in the next 3 months and if yes have you checked with RCI or your Cruise Agent regarding the Fuel Supplement Payment and on board credit. I have spoken to both and the information I received was very wishy washy to say the least.

Yep just checked he does mention the wine package on the 12th, but he also did another post since when he was recommending Pre pay tips and the wine package to save money (he actually gave the web site to go to) I can remember because I asked him what ship he was on from the far east and he replied the Legend OS...... Just annoyed I can not find it now. Regards.

Well this should cover the "My time Dining question" and guess who did this post ? Yes your right "Wilba" read on............I've just found this on the 'other' site after a long trawl through it (their search option rarely works) so here's a run down of MY Time Dining:...........Dinner is served in the Main Dining Room Same menu as traditional seating Same impeccable service as traditional seating Must pre-pay gratuities to participate - this includes tips for your waiter, assistant waiter, head waiter and stateroom attendant Guests will not receive a table assignment or permanent table mates You will have the ability to request a certain waiter (subject to availability) My Time Dining waiters share their gratuities amongst the other My Time Dining waiters; feel free to reward your waiter with an extra tip for providing excellent service You will be seated with the party you arrive with; you can request to be seated with other guests or alone To provide you with a smooth, non-disruptive meal, once dinner service begins for your table, no additional guests will be seated Reservations are recommended in order to avoid a delay in seating (reservations will be taken once onboard) When reserving your cruise, you will need to provide your reservation number and the number of guests participating in the My Time DiningSM option Offer is subject to availability +Available on the following ships and dates: Oasis of the Seas December 12, 2009 - November 27, 2010 Brilliance of the Seas now - December 23, 2009 Freedom of the Seas now - December 27, 2009 Serenade of the Seas now - December 26, 2009 Jewel of the Seas now - December 21, 2009 Radiance of the Seas now - December 20, 2009 Independence of the Seas now - December 26, 2009 .

Hello Wilba, please look below at one of the questions by me at 15.09pm, when did you write the post? It’s annoying me because I cannot find it. It’s when you informed me you were sailing on the Legend OS. Regards.

What Would Be Your Dream Bucke...

By Eleni House

Did you know, that the Great Wall Of China can be seen from space?This week in the office I was rather excited for both for myself and for one of my customers. We had been speaking over the past few days regarding booking a journey of a lifetime for one of her bucket list itineraries that she has wanted to do for some time now. When putting together this type of Tailor Made cruise package, I always ensure we are getting exactly what the customer wants, as well as what they expect from their p...

Whether you are relatively new to cruising or a seasoned cruiser, you must have a favourite thing when it comes to cruising? Do you love the formal nights, is it the prospect of a new port of call, is it not having to do the laundry the whole time you are away, or sitting on your balcony just watching the sea go by and enjoying the peace and quiet?For me it always comes back to the same old thing – the food! I just can’t help myself at all. I spend all of my time just looking forw...

 Royal Caribbean cruises have brought some changes info effect this month with their on-board booking programmes. The changes I read about are mainly based on the US market and I am struggling to find out how we are effected here.One thing I have read is that Royal Caribbean will be taking the option away for people to receive their bonus on-board booking on-board credit on their current cruise and instead having to take it with the new cruise.Also I read that reduced deposits will not ...
