  1. All is well, just busy. I keep in touch with @WAAAYTOOO and it's all good.
  2. We have been warned many times that prices will rise. Some of those factors were discussed last year: https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2020/06/24/expect-royal-caribbean-cruise-prices-go-soon https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2020/06/24/inside-look-how-many-people-are-still-booking-royal-caribbean-cruises
  3. That sets off all kinds of red flags to me. What if the ship had to skip Haines at the last minute? #ShipHappens
  4. D+ get tours but not the actual Behind The Scenes tour offered at a price to all guests. Sometimes it's a galley tour, sometimes a bridge tour, sometimes a backstage entertainment tour and sometimes none, all or some of the above. They are unique to CAS so depending on how many qualify on board the specific tours vary. While the not the full Behind the Scenes excursion activity they are still fun and informative. CAS verbiage: 8. Diamond and above members are eligible for Entertainment tour only. Behind the Scenes Tours including the Galley, Bridge, and enhanced Ente
  5. For Alaska, it's possible the original terms from February are still available. Something to inquire about or look back to see if you have the notices from then. https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2021/02/17/royal-caribbean-pushes-back-final-payment-date-2021-alaska-and-new-england-cruises In addition to pushing back the final payment date, Royal Caribbean has offered guests options for changing their sailing or getting a refund: Leave their bookings as they are, and wait to see what happens. All final payment dates have been extended to just 45 days prior to embarkation day.
  6. https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2021/01/21/royal-caribbean-cancels-quantum-of-the-seas-2021-alaska-season https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2021/02/17/royal-caribbean-pushes-back-final-payment-date-2021-alaska-and-new-england-cruises
  7. Only Quantum was cancelled. The rest they held, giving the option to cancel or wait it out.
  8. Enchantment has a trampoline. Has for some time. https://www.royalcaribbean.com/cruise-ships/enchantment-of-the-seas/things-to-do Scroll down a bit. BUNGEE TRAMPOLINE Only ship to bounce you high over the bow with 4 massive bungee trampolines.
  9. I think the spokesperson was addressing the greater area.
  10. I can only imagine how much social media is blowing up right now with questions. They've got the weekend to discuss the ramifications and it may be mid-week before we hear anything but all you can do is be patient and wait. And maybe overindulge in some adult beverages.
  11. Details to come, but neither ship was scheduled to do one-way itineraries.
  12. Serenade and Ovation will sail to Alaska. Posted by Michael Bayley.
  13. Still a fluid situation changing daily/weekly. If I know Royal like I think I know Royal, they won't announce anything just yet.
  14. I think we'll learn more in the coming days. There is a lot to this new requirement including the need to address guests who have birthdays in July or August that will turn "vaccine age" but can't get vaccinated in time to sail. I realize this new requirement may be unsettling but we need to see how it plays out and what their offers will be. Give it a few days.
  15. Looks like the title needs to be updated... Alaska is not a total loss. https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2021/05/21/royal-caribbean-will-restart-cruises-alaska-summer-2021

  17. A spokesperson for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey issued a statement after RoyalCaribbeanBlog.com reached out for an update. "We are working closely with Cape Liberty Cruise Port in anticipation of the ‘trial cruise’ required by the CDC’s Conditional Sail Order to take place by mid-August, with a regular schedule of cruises expected to resume by the end of August." "At this time, there is no timeline for cruise resumption at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal." https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2021/05/21/florida-tells-royal-caribbean-it-does-not-need-its-permis
  18. The CDC's instructions for cruise lines under the Framework for Conditional Sailing Order (CSO) are to submit the port agreements to the state Department of Health, but Florida has responded by saying they do not need to give cruise lines permission to operate, and directed cruise lines to go right to the CDC for test cruise permission. https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2021/05/21/florida-tells-royal-caribbean-it-does-not-need-its-permission-cruise-ships-sail
  19. https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2021/05/21/florida-tells-royal-caribbean-it-does-not-need-its-permission-cruise-ships-sail Florida tells Royal Caribbean it does not need its permission for cruise ships to sail
  20. Symphony is in drydock now. We don't know how long she'll be in drydock but it's only 10 days back so unless she is in drydock for a long time timing should work out for July.
  21. Do you deliver to the Atlanta area? I'll take a hundred plase.
