Random Musings – February 26, 2013

Lot’s of random stuff to talk about this morning. Some I’m a few days behind on, and others more current.
  • Effective for sailings March 1 and beyond, Royal Caribbean will begin automatically adding a daily charge to your onboard account to cover staff gratuities. The charge will be $12.00 per person, per day for non-suite guests, and $14.25 per person, per day for suite guests. If you pre-pay your gratuities prior to boarding, this will not apply, and you can adjust the amounts if you are unhappy with services received.
  • More Royal Caribbean – The cruise line is currently offering a “3 Day WOW” sale offering reduced deposits, and onboard credits that vary based on length of your cruise. Click here for details.
  • Delta continues to impress me with investments it is making in its product. Building on recently¬†enhancements to its transcontinental inflight product, Business Elite services will soon include “Westin Heavenly Bed” products. (HT: Gary)
  • Where in the world is MJ this week? Washington, DC. Full hotel review coming Friday. Hint: I got one of the sweeter suite upgrades I’ve had in a while.
