  1. I was on Adventure at the end of August the smell of smoke was noticeable outside the deck 3 MDR, but I have a strong sense of smell, hate cigarette smoke, and didn't really notice it in other nonsmoking areas. I was even able to deal wit the nonsmoking area of the casino.
  2. Congrats! We are heading to Bermuda on Saturday and the 4 of us tested negative this morning, so I totally get it!
  3. I was wondering this myself. I am gluten free and can have wine, Truly, any hard liquor (vodka, tequila, rum, whisky, etc), club soda, regular soda, and many of the liquers, so I don't really see how being gluten free would affect the ability to have the DBP.
  4. Praying for someone or blessing them doesn't pay the bills.
  5. I totally know what you're saying. We were on Oasis in May and there was a great Billy Idol cover band. A lot of people got there early and took up the seats on the first floor, but didn't seem to know anything about the music. It was kind of annoying, frankly. I didn't let it stop me from dancing, though. So much fun! Looks like you had a wonderful time! We loved Oasis and I can't wait to go on it again (having a suite definitely enhanced the experience). Totally agree with you regarding the Suite Lounge, Suite Deck, and Coastal Kitchen.
  6. Azova offers proctored video tests for Covid tests bought outside on the US. https://athomevideo.azova.com/
  7. I say yes. I sailed on Oasis in May when it was at least 75-80% capacity. We originally had a Boardwalk balcony room (got a great deal on it to begin with) and won our minimum bid for a 2 br Grand Suite. If we had booked that suite, it would have cost us over $10,000. Our total cost was under $4,000, which also included internet for all 4 of us, Coastal Kitchen dining, free drinks in the suite lounge, etc.
  8. I can't speak for Antigua, but we honeymooned on St. Lucia and had an absolutely amazing time there. It's a beautiful island and the resort we stayed at was fantastic (The Body Holiday in Castries).
  9. What is the top tier event like? We will be cruisng as platinum members for the first time this month.
  10. We made reservations for the Solarium Bistro for dinner one night and had our kids. No issues.
  11. I'm in the FB group for the Aug 27th sailing, but not everyone uses social media, so I wanted to see if anyone here was going.
  12. Just making sure that supervised = proctored telemed test. What could mean one thing in one country might mean something else in another country.
  13. This is from the Bermuda government's website: "A valid pre-travel COVID-19 test must be a COVID-19 NAAT test listed below or a supervised antigen test. COVID-19 Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT)” means a type of viral diagnostic test for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. NAATs for SARS-CoV-2 specifically identify the RNA (ribonucleic acid) sequences that comprise the genetic material (nucleic acids) of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The COVID-19 NAATs accepted in Bermuda are: “COVID-19 PCR test” (reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction), “COVID-19 LAMP test” (loop-mediated isothermal amplification), and, “COVID-19 TMA test” (transcription mediated amplification). A valid pre-arrival test result must meet the following standards: The COVID-19 test type must be indicated on the test result: RT-PCR, Rapid PCR, RT-LAMP, Antigen, The test must be performed by an accredited laboratory, healthcare provider or pharmacy" Based on this information, is a negative test result for a proctored (telehealth) antigen test (for vaccinated people) acceptable?
  14. This cruise is almost full; I'm surprised there aren't more people in this thread.
  15. Hopefully it means you won it. Good luck and please post here to tell us whether or not you won your bid.
  16. I can't cancel or modify either of my bids even if I wanted to.
  17. Thanks! I wasn't sure if it was a glitch or if it meant that I might get it. Here's hoping I do win.
  18. We are booked on Adventure at the end of this month and judging by mock bookings, it's pretty full. I received the invite for Royal Up a while ago and put in two very low bids for suites. When I go to my Royal Up bids, I can see the two bids that I put in, but can't modify them. One just says "submitted" with no other options, and the other one goes to tell me "no eligible cruise found" when I click on "modify". If I click on the "click here to see other upgrade options", it takes me to three other options that I haven't bid on. This is very different than my Royal Up experience for Oasis back in May. I was able to change, cancel, or modify any of the bids that I had made. Has anyone had a similar experience, and if so, what was the outcome?
  19. That would be great if Bermuda didn't require it as well after that date, but I don't have my hopes up.
  20. So.... what about in the case of a 5-night cruise to Bermuda? Bermuda has their own documentation to fill out and as of now, testing is part of that.
  21. RC isn't requiring testing on 5-night cruises? Where did you see that info?
  22. Awesome. I was on Oasis in May and felt the same way about the crowds. We had a wonderful time, but it was impossible to get a deck chair on the pool deck and the pools were crowded. Also agree about the trivia. With a ship that big, trivia could have easily been done in the Music Hall or another larger venue. We didn't eat at any of the specialty restaurants, but were pretty happy with the food at Coastal Kitchen, MDR, El Loco Fresh, and the Windjammer. We also loved the salad place in Central Park.
  23. I was on Oasis in May and did not see anything for the 10 drink card.
  24. I was there May 15-22 and only saw some small lizards (definitely real) and heard some birds (real or not).
