  3. Often it comes down to TV rights. Many sports are emphasizing their own pay services to watch when you aren't watching on a US broadcast or sports network. Some of the phone apps use GPS to determine your location to see if your eligible to watch. A laptop without a GPS often works better when out of the country and the ship internet makes it look you are in Miami so laptops can have an advantage sometimes.
  4. That was Carnival's approach. Fewer ships but operating at 75-100% capacity. I prefer the reduced capacity approach. I didn't feel safe on Carnival.
  5. I've been using Walgreens ID NOW for a number of cruise and cruise lines including Odyssey earlier this month. It qualifies since it is NAAT.
  6. I suspect they blocked out the cabins involved with the move so they could get the cruises on the website to sell remaining cabins. It's a short sales cycle and not ideal so there will be a desire to get it out there. With cabins for moves blocked off they can begin to work on individual moves and notify Allure guests "soon". That's my guess.
  7. For Vancouver your choices are much like any port city. A hotel near the airport will be less than a hotel near the port downtown. There is light rail airport train that is inexpensive to reach downtown and the cruise terminal. Downtown, while costing more is more convenient to downtown restaurants, sights and the cruise terminal. Hotel airports are available from most of the major chains. Budget will be a factor. The cruise terminal in Vancouver is called Canada Place. Try a hotel search near the airport and near Canada Place for a comparison.
  8. Maybe until Allure moves to Galveston. They won't keep Harmony and Wonder in Port Canaveral. One of them heads to FLL or Wonder leaves the US. Time will tell.
  9. Also, group bookings can have different rules in play. Ask your TA. If booked directly you likely don't have any perks associated with group bookings so that shouldn't be a factor for direct bookings.
  10. It isn't really a cancellation and new booking in North America. I think the UK has that restriction. With a reprice (in North America) you retain the same booking number, same booking date, same deposit, etc. Like changing cabins doesn't cause a cancellation and new booking, neither should a reprice. Repricing can cause some forms of OBC to be lost. If you booked under a sale or promo that included OBC when you reprice you forfeit any offers from the original promo and you obtain any new offers for the current promo. That often results in loss of OBC but could result in new OBC if the current promo includes OBC. It depends but make sure to ask the question when looking into a reprice - "Will I lose my OBC?". Changing ship and/or sail date is another matter.
  11. Not that we are aware of. T&C's state "booked by". I don't know for certain but I don't think Royal is looking for ways to get out of this promo. They want loyal customers to be happy (and loyal).
  12. Yep. I've pretty much not booked a refundable fare for any cruise that is CWC eligible. (I'm usually big on refundable bookings)
  13. Poll Question: How long before @JC Pats loses, either temporarily or permanently, his Seapass card? According to video on the internet he has until 3:47pm to break his Odyssey record.
  14. No one knows for sure. Royal has not officially said anything. Crew rumors about a drydock are reported, but those are just rumors without details.
  15. Here is another method to support the blog: https://www.patreon.com/RoyalCaribbeanBlog
  16. Congratulations! Should be a great cruise and awesome event in Star Class no less. Enjoy!

  18. Oasis Sky and Star class include internet access but if a guest locks their phone in the safe, they won't get any emails
  19. Yes it can be. More common on pay as you go purchases compared to prepaid packages like drink packages.
  20. I'm always amazed how quickly longer cruises like this reach their conclusion. In the beginning it's like "I have lots of time to try this or that" then all of a sudden it becomes "there's only a day left and I haven't done everything I planned to".
  21. Not really seeing much change with luggage. On short 3 & 4 night cruises more people carry on. It's always been that way.
