This thread has been great with updates but i have yet to see anything about CSR. Anyone know the fridge status there? 45 days out and would love to be able to have cold bottled water in the room.

Two things. One, I am worried about people plugging in the old ones and then the people replacing them getting confused as to which have been replaced and which haven't. Especially since the resorts are giving them to some guests for medical reasons. Are the new ones different in appearance? This whole thing seems very haphazard.

Second, does anyone have an update on CBR? The last one I saw was from several weeks ago.

When we were just there (8/20 - 8/25), the old fridge had a decal with operating instructions on the top. The decal covered the entire top. The new fridge did not have this decal.

Just got back from POFQ. Had both called and faxed in a request for a room with a fridge. We were in Building 3 and did have a working fridge. Not sure if it was new or old, but it worked!

My son checked into CBR Barbados no refrig. He called and was told only for medical reasons and said the women sounded mean. No offer of $15. he had one when he was in All Star Movies herbie section the last 3 days.

Pop from 8/30- 9/2----no fridge

BUT...............after 24 hour hours we politely complained hoping to get a credit on our bill and they wound up digging up a small traditional fridge/freezer within 30 minutes. They assured us that no medical needs guest would suffer if we got it.

DRAT............we really wanted the possible 15 buck per night credit, but we were happy to have cool and dry bottles and cans for the rest of our stay!

I know. I'm 12 days out from my Pop stay and I'd rather have a credit than the fridge too.

we checked in POR Mon and had requested one for medical purposes. we were told we had one but when we got to our room--a white fridge with the note on it. After talking to several people we got a fridge-a black one and I was told it was a new one

We're going the second week of November at POR. Would anyone say the fridge situation should be settled by then. Has anyone stayed in a wheelchair assesable room? Are they replacing them first?

Is it just my imagination, or does it appear the handful of resorts which haven't been switched over yet seem to have no new fridge activity?

I've been watching the status of Pop very closely since we arrive in 44 days and there are no reports of new fridges going in yet. Seems to be the same for the few other resorts still waiting.

In July and August there were constant updates about new fridges going in but nothing lately. Is this project on hold for a few weeks while they wait for more to come in?

Helps me Pirate Princess 2! DH & I check into CBR (hopefully Aruba) in 16 days and have noted a fridge request on my reservation. I do not have a medical need but a large Garden Grocer order scheduled to be delivered.

Quick question - did either your party or your inlaws have to ask for one once you got there?

Thanks again for the info. Hope you had a great time!
