I have read some of the entries here and it seems to me that RCCL is losing it's touch with some of our loyal cruisers. I mean as long as I have been here in this lovely chat community I have not read such negativity from the mega cruisers as I do now. Kind od scary again is RCCL losing it appeal just wondering, this is for the mega cruisers and just those of us that cruise now and again.

RCI seems to be pushing the envelope with many repeaters when it comes to many things. The nickel and diming, testing extra-fee food in the main dining room of a couple ships, goofy new ad campaign, dysfunctional website, playing games with on-board credits, etc. It all combines to be annoying at times, and I think RCI is right on the edge of pushing many loyal customers to try something else. The "breaking point".

It might be that RCI is shifting it's marketing to concentrate on first timers and put less emphasis on repeaters. That seems to be the message behind the new ad campaign.

I am not abandoning them. I'm just becoming less enamored of RCI.

It's sort of like the "My child would never do that." Then you find out they did.

Good analogy.

It's like my mother said her kids wouldn't ever do that...but I did:-).....

Our last cruise with RCL was a pleasant one on the Adventure of the Seas, but we haven't been back in the last year....It's us repeat cruiser's that make the money for them I would have to say....But I will cruise until they tell me not to......Happy Cruising......There are 6 inches of snow coming tonight, yes indeed, I'm cruising....

We are two hours northwest of Minneapolis/St. Paul and only got 4 inches. I am willing my cruise ticker to speed up!
