  1. Looks like parking at new terminal is up for reservations... portofgalveston.com even with promo code GRANDOPENING22 the cost is almost 2x higher than what we've paid at EZ Cruise in the past...
  2. Hoping for the best... Cancun and the rest of the Mexican Caribbean battle a sargassum seaweed invasion (thepointsguy.com)
  3. Check-in times are open in the Royal App... 3:15pm CST 05/03/2022
  4. RCCL Excursions in Belize and Roatan. Maya Chan in Costa Maya. Nachi Cocom in Cozumel. Never been to either so it be fun exploring new options...
  5. Maya Chan Beach Resort in Costa Maya posted on their Facebook Page that they will be closed from July 1, 2022 till October 12, 2022. Plan accordingly... We are visiting them the first week in June for the first time... I think Matt may be heading there next week on Wonder and can get the details...
  6. We UDP for a lunch at JR on Adventure of the Seas in 12/21.
  7. My bad... Need to pay more attention to this page: https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2020/04/01/whats-the-differences-between-each-of-the-oasis-class-ships
  8. Love to hear reports on the Sargassum (seaweed algae) population at all three stops...
  9. Yeah but the stage show is 'Cats'... Snore... So glad to be hitting Allure and 'Mamma Mia' before the swap...
  10. Not necessarily caused by COVID, but what is something you miss from current Royal Ships that you used to be able to do or purchase onboard? I miss ship specific postcards in the gift shop... Always enjoyed sending those out as well as purchasing an extra one or two for bookmarks... Switched over to shot glasses and now those seem to be dwindling...
  11. Am I imaging things or is there an upper age limit for Royal Caribbean shore excursions? The number 72 sticks out in my mind but I cannot find anything with a quick search... My parents are approaching that threshold and would be concerned if they couldn't join us on an excursion...
  12. Hoping that this terminal upgrade results in better ship assignments and varied itineraries for G. Seems like Galveston is the dumping ground for ships that didn't get Amplified... Liberty- last of Freedom Class to get full scheduled Amplification... not yet complete... Allure- Oasis Class but missing items found on others in same class... not yet complete... Yeah COVID and all that, but it would be nice to get nice things out of Galveston...
  13. We just sailed on Adventure in Late December and had UDP. Daughter has Peanut Allergy. Izumi on Adventure does not have Hibachi nor Hot Rocks. Menu also did not have noodle dishes. She could not have anything that was tempura or had Panko due to cross contamination issues. She had vegetable fried rice from the menu and two items chef made - a couple pieces of thinly sliced tuna with a dab of sauce and a shrimp based sushi roll that had a Fish and sauce on top of it. She would have enjoyed it more without the Fish... Honestly we had plans to eat here multiple times on that cruise and we never went back because the menu was pretty much off-limits to one of our party. We ate at Izumi on Vision of the Seas several years ago and had a great experience with noodles, hot rock dishes, etc...
  14. Are these cabins for 5 on Oasis-Class only bookable for 5 via the phone? Was trying to do a dummy booking for availability/pricing and cannot put 5 in a cabin...
  15. I've always used the Royal Key with the understanding that room for 3 has a sofa bed, while the room for 4 has two ceiling bunks. This has been for Vision, Voyager, and Freedom class sailings.... We are booked in an Aft Corner Balcony on Freedom Class for June that is for 3 but has a single Ceiling Bunk... and a BIG balcony!!! Had to research this big time beforehand as sleeper sofas take up too much floorspace when deployed... We booked two adjoining staterooms at the back of Deck 7 on Allure. One room is set for 4 and one for 2. Hoping the 4 is bunks but never sailed on Oasis Class
  16. So will the adjacent parking included in this project be enough to handle all passengers from Allure plus other RCL ship at same time? Booked our first Allure sailing for 2023 and started thinking about parking... Our current favorite lot, EZ Cruise, would be too far from new pier for our liking... Could parking be potentially sold at same time as booking if operated by Royal?
  17. We sail on 12/20. I work at Quest Diagnostics - the lab that the CVS PCR test would go to for processing... Getting tested on 12/18 at CVS but did not have confidence that results would be ready by PCR in time for boarding at 12pm 12/20... Weekend staffing/Holiday rush/etc... Instead, booked Rapid Antigen test done at CVS... Results in 30m... Clearing up something in above post: Vaccination produces antibodies to fight infection in subsequent exposure... An Antigen is molecule found in Sample that equals active infection and is what triggers an immune response...
  18. I have contacted Royal in the past about excursions when issues arose. They even refunded one several months after the cruise when I spoke up. I cannot remember if it was via email or via a portal on Royal Website... sorry.
  19. How was seating assigned during the theater and ice shows? All seats available or sections roped off? Sailing on AotS on 12/20 and cannot wait...
  20. I cannot remember which line, but somebody had 7 night sailings from Galveston that went to Bahamas. Looks to be about same distance to Roatan so it should be within fuel budget. I'd book a 7 nighter to Coco Cay out of Galveston in a heartbeat... I think the problem would be other stops same trip... Nassau? Key West? Cozumel? Not sure what maximum overnight nautical mile capacity is...
