Default Question about back-to-back cruises
Yes, even I have questions! For those who have done back-to-back cruises on Royal Caribbean...when you checked in at the pier did they just want your first cruise booking information or did they want all of your b2b booking info?

Hi, Dave!

Boy, I better not screw this one up. They just want the information for the first cruise. When you're on your first week check to make sure you're on the manifest for the second week. You can do that a the Guest Relations Desk or with the Loyalty Ambassador. You should receive your new seapass card on the last night of your first cruise. All the "intransit" passengers will meet in a designated area and be escorted off the ship to have your pictures taken for the new seapass card. The whole process takes about 20 minutes. They'll have a special lunch for all the B2B passengers. It's a great feeling not to be leaving the ship after the first week.

Thanks, Sonny. Now that they've officially announced the December Diamond event I suspect there will be many B2B passengers.

Dave, you'll love the B2B. We did one last year and it was a thrill to know that, as everyone left the ship, we had another week of cruising to look forward to.

Only 75 people did the B2B on that cruise. About forty of them got off the ship for a few hours in Miami. That left about 35 of us wandering around an empty ship. What a cool feeling! We went to the back of the ship in the Windjammer and had a drink while we watched dolphins playing. No one to bother us. What a neat memory!

I know you'll enjoy it!

I'm really looking forward to it. Plus, I reconfigured the cruises a bit yesterday and will now get enough points to make Diamond Plus after the December cruises.

Dave, are you in the same cabin for both cruises? I'm glad to hear you'll finally reach the D+ status. If you happen to have enough points during your second cruise you should get the D+ status while on that cruise. You're right about a lot of B2B passenger taking advantage of the double and triple points. The prices are a lot higher than when I booked my cruise. I got JS's for $1150pp. Now I would have to pay that for a D-1 category. I'll be 70 points away from Pinnacle after my three weeks of triple points. RCCL sure got their hook in me with all the different statuses. By the time I get my Pinnacle pin they'll probably have another goal like Pinnacle plus.

I couldn't get the same cabin for the cruises. I won't have 175 points until I leave the last cruise, so I'll be D+ on the Rock Legends II cruise but it won't mean anything because that is a charter! Oh well. At least I'll have D+ perks for our cruise in June to celebrate our son's high school graduation. You can't beat the Concierge Lounges on the Oasis and Allure. They are the best, especially with the breakfast and lunch menus.

The prices have been going up for December, that's for sure. I suspect when they officially announced it would be another special month for Diamond and above members that the phones got busy.

I'll be willing to bet I see Super Mario on the Liberty in December. It is his favorite ship. They even have a photo of him with the crew posted outside the loyalty ambassador's office. I think it was for his 400th cruise. No telling how many points he has accumulated. He has done the Liberty at least 80 times. Mario Salcedo article
