I hear ya bruno, I do. I would love it if there had been something they could do for ya so you could enjoy the benefits of wearing the RObe. The RObes are a bulk order C9, there are X # of new RO's, so that's how many of item # dark blue robe they order. I would speculate that the thing with the "new" blue, the Caribbean Blue, was that the dark blue was out of stock. Then at the last minute it came in and they were able to embroider the original color in time. Anyone remember the maroon/burgundy RObes? The fact that they are doing the size specific RO fleeces is pretty impressive.
Which is a great segue to my main point. Be thankful! Try not to get upset about the gifts. I'm guilty of it too (
) and it can be easy to slip into, but they are gifts. I didn't spend the money I did for framed luggage tags, a fleece, the RObe, or (remember these Lifers?
) a towel. The cruise has definitely evolved since 2004 and the reason I go each year has remained the same and it hasn't ever been for the gift. I'm impressed and grateful that they have kept it up over the last 6 cruises.
very aware these are just gifts - it was just we learned about the whole Repeat Offender thing our first year, and couldn't wait to get four JC's uder our belt, to be able to get the cool robes. that's all. the robe was something I really looked forward to, and it felt good to walk up to Doria's World, patiently wait in line with a few others, and then be handed the robe same as my wife, and I said: "These are all the same size?"...and the girl said yes, all are the same. I immediately tried to put it on there, and was saddened by the fact that my shoulders barely got into it, and the sleeves were way up high almost like T-shirt length on me, and no hope of getting it around me. I really had looked forward to getting the robe for four years. As I said above, I would gladly offer to pay to purchase another XXL size and have them embroider it, and send this one back. ...BUT it wasn'e even an option - they just said sorry! I know it could be done, and I know others would also like to have that happen. I do love these Jam Cruises more than anything I have ever done in my life - the Ultimate Floating Music Festival with the best people on earth aboard!
