Diamond (5/7)



  1. Brilliance cancelled from Tampa - to be replaced by Serenade (all tours that were paid for cancelled). Ovation of the Seas cancelled from Australia to New Zealand.
  2. We just got notice this morning, via e-mail from RCL, that our February Caribbean cruise has been cancelled along with all excursions. Upon checking Royal's website, there is no cancellation notice for the February cruise, BUT there is a cancellation notice for the first of three B2Bs next year from Australia-NZ-Hawaii-Vancouver (only one of the three so far). What has been everyone's experience with cancellation notices? Best route to take? Royal's current refund posture? Have already forwarded info to TA. Thanks for any insight.
  3. Did much the same with Budget in Fort Lauderdale, and it was a disaster. Not enough cars, not enough shuttles, not enough employees. In my opinion, you be well served finding another way!
  4. Does anyone know if the cruise awards earned through the RCL Visa card can be booked through a travel agent? Are any classes of ship "off limits". Thanks.
  5. If you "need" a booster, you would need it whether or not you are cruising. This almost has to be a "go with the flow" and "follow advice" decision.
  6. Good stuff to know. We will hit the "340 level" (meal with an officer) midway through three B2Bs, and will look forward to this special meal.
  7. Hope you get to visit Key West - great port with lots to do for the day!
  8. Added thought: CDC today said moderately safe for fully-vaccinated folks to travel. That would seem to increase likelihood of cruise actually taking place.
  9. We are going on three B2Bs on Ovation in 2022, ending in Vancouver. Appreciate all the tips! Most menu rotations on crossings, for us, have been repeat of earlier days, but as mentioned, menu choice makes this palatable.
  10. Have used AT&T International Day pass on many lengthy cruises - good "piece of mind" in foreign ports, plus no cost if not used. Great if you don't need to check your e-mail every day and are willing to use phone only on specific days of your choice.
  11. Thought on airfare: if you have airline miles, use miles to book. In most cases, easy to obtain full refund of miles, occasionally with a fee involved.
  12. With Canada closed, the Alaska cruise seems improbable in 2021
  13. If the airlines don't fly many passengers, then many cruise passengers cannot reach their ports - no matter what the cruise lines are able to accomplish.
  14. If Royal can start cruises from Barbados, why not Cozumel? Details might be tough, but could be worked out.
