  1. I am on the Anthem for an 8 night on February 6th. I am hoping they will just shorten it to 7 nights since that is what the itinerary typically is anyway. But I also can't check in.
  2. I am on one of those reduced capacity sailings before April. I was hoping Anthem would make its way back over carrying crew back here like it carried them home earlier this year. Since it was here they would go ahead with what they could. But you are right, who knows? And even it does make it back over here, will NJ even allow cruising? Again, who knows?
  3. We have (had) a cruise on Adventure out of Stockholm so now I am curious to see how they handle that. Not as interested in Barcelona. I know they have changed ships out and then moved everyone over to the new ship (Galveston coming up I think)? But what do they do when they completely change the itinerary and port that you begin and end in? I looked at it again this morning and it is still the same, showing in Feedly but not on their actual page. Hope no one got transferred to the mail room! (I tried to upload a screenshot of the page in feedly but it looks like it is not work
  4. This just popped up in Feedly for me where I have their press center as a source. But, if you go to the press center it is not on there? So I don't know the accuracy? ROYAL CARIBBEAN ANNOUNCES UPDATES TO 2021 SUMMER DEPLOYMENT Royal Caribbean Press Center News Feed 4h //keep unread//hide MIAMI, Sept. 17, 2020 – Royal Caribbean International today provides an update to its 2021 summer deployment, announcing upcoming redeployments of six ships. Tapping market research and listening to feedba
  5. I came across this video today of someone that is onboard one of the ships that has started sailing (MeinSchiff Blaue Reise). He talks about how boarding was different and the procedures they have on the ship. I thought it was interesting and possibly what it would look like when we can start back.
  6. There is a lighting tech that has been stuck on Quantum for the last several months. He is a pretty funny guy and talks about his situation and goes on tours of the empty ship. If you are interested in that kind of thing here is the first video in the series: Just thought I would pass it along. Something amusing to watch to pass the time. CT
  7. I also vote for the Crystal Caves. There is also a small beach available next to where Anthem usually docks. The weather sounds like it will be perfect.
  8. Now Monday....I am going to wait it out. They are covering hotel costs. Short cruise, but life is crazy sometimes. We will set sail from Cape Liberty, New Jersey on Monday, February 10th. We’re currently finalizing our itinerary and compensation details and will share the details with you at 2:00 PM EST. We are trying our best to still make this a great experience for you.
  9. Hmmm...changed again: We’ll set sail from Cape Liberty at 10:00 PM on Saturday, February 8th instead of 3:00 PM on Friday, February 7th. Additionally, our visit to Port Canaveral will now be on February 11th from from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM and to Perfect Day at CocoCay on February 12th from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Unfortunately, we’ll be unable to visit Nassau, Bahamas. I guess I will be sitting in a hotel lobby! Oh also, be glad you skipped Charlotte. I was trying to get to Newark from Charlotte and everything was cancelled due to the local tornados and just crazy
  10. I have been in an interior studio on Anthem three times. It is small, but there is the virtual balcony which really helps. If you don't spend much time in your room or a small space does not bother you they are great. The only advantage to a regular interior room for solo travel is the double crown and anchor points if that matters to you.
  11. I have had this on and off as well. I download using Pocketcasts on Android. I have just skipped forward to get out of the loop.
  12. We went in June. They take you across the water to another island. The pigs are all running (and swimming) in an area that is about 200 x 100ft. About half of that is in the water. They don't make the pigs do anything. They can choose to swim or not. About 5 or 6 pigs choose to swim when we went with about 4 or 5 just sleeping on the beach. We were in the water about 20 to 30 minutes and you feed them and then can hold one and get a picture. They took pictures (which you could later purchase online) or you could use your own camera. At the end they brought out a bunch of piglets to play with.
  13. On Anthem now and due to a medical emergency we are supposed to arrive at the pier in Bayonne in a few minutes. The Captain announced around noon that a passenger needed to get to the hospital but could not be flown by helicopter. So we have cruised quickly to arrive tonight instead of at 6am tomorrow. So whatever the decision on your itinerary tomorrow at least you know the ship will be there!
  14. I used the digital set sail pass at Cape Liberty a few months back and they happily scanned it in to get me checked in. They then printed out a copy on paper that I had to show everyone else. Would have been the exact same thing I printed at home.
  15. The first time we cruised on the Anthem in an inside room I thought the virtual balcony would just be a gimmick, but was really surprised to find it was nice to have and (kind of) made you feel like you had a balcony. So maybe a useful gimmick. We were told that the camera view you had was the view on the actual side of the ship you were on and that it faced because if the motion of the ship did not match the view on the screen that people would get motion sickness. No idea if this is true.
