  1. I disagree. As a travel agent, many of the properties I am in touch with in the Caribbean have told me it’s a major issue. The two islands that have mostly spared so far are Aruba and Turks and Caicos. And the worst have been Dominican Republic, Cayman Islands, and some parts of Mexico. Mexico is very hit and miss though. Depends on where. Cancun and Cozumel have been mostly spared but Riviera Maya and Playa Del Carmen have been hit hard.
  2. Thank you for your review. It is appreciated
  3. A dry dock does not mean any type of new features. A dry dock is not a amplification. It’s just a required technical service of the ship. Kinda of like changing the oil and rotating the tires of a car.
  4. Of course Royal is throttling. There is no question about it.
  5. The speed isn’t terribly impressive but you can tell it’s Starlink by the low ping.
  6. Completely agree. I think it’s completion date will slip.
  7. I probably will be there. Depends how many cabins our travel agency gets. If it’s only one cabin my co-worker Kym will go. She books a lot more Royal then I do. If we get two cabins, thenI will get to go! But my family and I are booked on the Allure on the Dec 30th cruise in a 2BR Grand Suite. Out first time in a 2BR on an Oasis cabin which we are very much looking forward to.
  8. Geez. I wish that I had the problem of having “only” 50 mbps on a cruise ship. I can’t believe Princess already has that. I really don’t have too much interest in trying Princess however, haven’t heard too many good things. Hopefully Royal can increase our Wi-Fi speeds to 50 Mbps soon. I’d settle for 10-15, I’m just tired of only getting 3-4.
  9. I don’t remember telling anybody how to dress. I said it was my opinion. And I acknowledged that times have changed and that I needed to change with them.
  10. Just my opinion. I know people are going to say don’t worry about what what other people are wearing. But I’m kinda old school. I’m 51, and I grew up enjoying when my parents took me out to a nice restaurant and we all dressed up. It was a special occasion. Times have changed and I have to change with them I guess.
  11. I agree with you. But unfortunately, I am in the minority. I don’t mind jeans. But allowing shorts is ridiculous.
  12. Actually, neither the Majesty or the Empress were Vision class ships. They were smaller.
  13. No. They are not all you can eat. They usually let you order two appetizers or desserts but only one entree.
  14. No one here can guarantee you 100% that you won’t have some cases of COVID on your ship and that you may not have a port of call cancelled. I personally don’t mind if a port is cancelled because I love the ships. You commented that you don’t want to spend 8 days at sea. If that’s the case, you may want to think about cancelling because the chances are higher right now that a port might be cancelled. Perhaps you would prefer to cruise when the COVID cases drop and there is less of a risk.
  15. Jesus. This whole thread is ridiculous. When it comes down to it, we are talking about the option of going on a vacation. A lot of people in the world don’t even get the opportunity to do that. I am about to go on my first cruise on Sunday post COVID. I’ll sleep with a mask on if they want me to at this point.
  16. Thank you for the clarification. Did not realize that.
  17. Are you saying they did not have all of the pool and hot tubs open for all of the passengers? I understand the comment about the shows but not the other. Thanks. Going on the December 19th sailing.
  18. Yes I got the email as well and I went to the website to check it out and of course the website is down. Royal IT at its finest.
