    I'm no sheep and I'm tired of hearing this. I have a family member who works in a hospital and sees a lot of death. I have a friend who's job the last few months was to tell people they were positive. Both of them have seen a lot of death. Death from people who were supposedly healthy.

    This is my issue with people like you - just because I believe something doesn't mean I'm a sheep. Just because you disagree doesn't mean you're wrong.  Stop calling people like me a sheep and I'll refrain from calling people like you something worse. Wear the damn mask or don't and deal with the consequences. OR DON'T. Disagreeing is one thing - name calling is another.


    I just don't understand why we can't disagree with respect.


    I never named called anyone or even mentioned you specifically!  Sheep is a term that describes people that follow the masses and DO NOT THINK FOR THEMSELVES...I happen to disagree with your "Im ready for a new normal" statements but never called you out for it.  Im just simply stating my opinion and YOU are the one getting offended by it.

    These Yo2slick think for yourself sessions sound fascinating.  Wish I could have been there.  
    So during this session you decided that limiting what droplets might enter or leave your mouth and nose is not a good idea?  Can you walk the rest of us through your logic?  What made limiting droplet exposure a bad idea for Yo2slick and those around you?

    This is truly not sarcasm, I would love for you to explain your process.

    IF you would have read my post then its not hard to understand or comprehend.  Do we wear masks for flu season?  NO!  Do we wear masks or gloves in public for any other infectious disease before COVID???  NO!!!  Herd immunity is a very real thing and it works plain and simple.  Buying into the fear mongering brought to us by the Mainstream media is not something Im willing to do.  I notice how you completely skipped over the part that the government workers are not required to wear masks at our DMV and went straight into attacking my way of thinking.  That in itself proves my point that most people are sheep and don't think for themselves.

    We are wearing masks for exactly the intent you referenced in the article. To prevent you from getting others sick. You may be an asymptomatic carrier or you may be infected but don’t have the symptoms yet. It’s not to protect you it’s to protect everyone else.  

    Our DMV is requiring the public to wear a mask when entering the building but the employees at the DMV are NOT required to wear one.  So that entire argument of "its not to protect you, its to protect others" is thrown completely out the window when the government that is forcing citizens into this "New Normal" BS doesn't have to follow their own guidelines.  

    I have not worn a mask since this started and I will not wear one.  If a business requires it then they don't need my money.  I actually think for myself instead of blindly following the masses that listen to people with an agenda.  

  4. Here is my deal breaker.  If the onboard experience is changed then there is no point in going.  We go on vacation to have fun and get away.  If all of the ridiculous restrictions on land are on the ship as well.....I can stay home and save money.  If people would use some common sense then we wouldn't be going through all this crap right now.  Washing your hands should have always been in practice.  Locking down and suppressing everyone's immune systems was a mistake and we haven't even begun to see the economic effects of the response to this virus.  Just wait and see, when this election is over in the US...COVID-19 will be a thing of the past.  Stop listening to Mainstream media and start thinking for yourselves.    

  5. Honestly, I think doing away with the buffet and completely changing our way of life is ridiculous.  If you don't like the buffet then dont go.  There are plenty of other options available.  Covid-19 isn't the end of the world and some of the responses and policy changes over the last couple of months is going to set a dangerous precedent moving forward.  I can't wait for our next cruise but if the onboard experience is going to change drastically then I can't see spending money on a trip I will not enjoy.  Time will tell I guess.

    I never seen lava flows and margaritas on the menu. Do you order them outside the list? How much do they cost compared to cocktails on the list?

    When you ask for a lava flow make sure to tell them you want it with Kraken.  You can ask for any liquor you want.  If they can make it, you can get it.

    This would be my husband and I. We do almost no drinking at all at home (ok except for the last couple weeks) but certainly got our money’s worth with the UBP on our last cruise.  Much like the Disney Dining Plan, I like the all inclusive feel of having the package prepaid (at Disney, I always go when it’s free).  We come close enough to even to make it worth the convenience for me.

    I just love not having to worry about a bill at the end.  We can run around and have fun and do whatever we want and its already paid for.

    My wife and I just booked our cruise for December 2020 and we could not be more excited!! While I was looking over the cruise planner I saw the price of the "Refreshment Package" for drinks. I am not sure if I can justify paying the price they have set for that specific drink package... I am wondering if anyone on here knows the price Royal charges for their mocktails, fresh squeezed juices, and bottled water.

    Keep checking the prices on the cruise planner.  You can catch some good deals every now and then.  I dont drink at home at all and I got my moneys worth with the DBP.  Lava flows and margaritas go down real smooth in the middle of the ocean.

    +1 on that.  $3281 off on my RLS for that sailing.  Same thing, second reduction in a matter of weeks.

    I just got off the phone checking on our April 2021 sailing on Liberty.  Price would drop 400 but we would lose our onboard credit so its basically a wash.  Guess Ill keep checking.

    In general, the consensus appears to be, if you were already planning on purchasing internet for everyone, then the Key is a good value. You will get embarkation lunch from Chops (usually served in the MDR) and have access to reserved seating at the theaters, which are things that JS normally do not get.  There will be a location (usually the main theater) where you can drop off your carry-on luggage at embarkation and it will be delivered to your room.  This is a perk that neither suites nor senior C&A members get !  There are also special reserved times for certain activities (flow rider, etc) but generally I’m not sure this is a perk that many take advantage of.  Then, there is a special disembarkation day breakfast and escort off the ship.  Overall, I think that, for new RC cruisers (someone who has minimal C&A status), the Key is a nice program.

    We had the Key on our first cruise last year on Liberty.  We thought it was well worth the value and would purchase again no doubt.  The only thing we didn't take advantage of was the drop off carry on luggage and most of the reserved time slots for activities.  Our carry on had all of our documents, medication ect and I wasn't comfortable handing that over to someone.  The reserved times sound great but its kind of a joke.  They are only for an hour on maybe 1 or 2 days of the cruise depending on the activity.  I did the flow rider 1 day for 1 hour and that was it.  Other than that it was great.  Priority embarkation and disembarkation is amazing!

  11. I bring a certain amount of 1s, 5s, 10s and 20s.  We tipped 5 at breakfast, 10 at lunch and 20 at dinner service.  Kept some cash for emergency, shopping at port and then tipped our room attendant on the last morning.  Also carried some for shore excursions to tip ect...  I also used the 1s for tipping at the bar.  Works well for us. 

  12. I believe you have 48 hours from the time of booking to change sail dates ect....  Now if you booked at NextCruise on the ship then you have 60 days to make changes.  The penalty is 100 per person to change ship or sail date.  Thats with a Non Refundable Deposit.  When we moved ours they took 200 from 500 we put down on deposit and transferred the other 300 to the new sailing.

    I am curious as to why the holds matter at all? I always put a card on my account (AMEX) and I have never even looked at the account during the cruise. We get the final statement at the end of the cruise. I review that and then look for the charge when I get home. I have never had a problem with the 2 of them reconciling. So I guess I dont understand what the holds even really mean.

    They are essentially charging your card temporarily to make sure you can cover it.  That affects your available credit available and if it takes 2 weeks to fall off you are holding onto charges you have already paid for on your final bill.  No different than buying something and returning it to the store.  They take your money right there and it takes them 3-5 days to return your money back to your account.  Thats why I like using my AMEX because the holds fall off very quickly.

  14. On our cruise last month I had daily holds for our purchases that fell off quickly.  On disembarkation day I had 2 holds still present and the final charge.  The holds fell off the next day no problem.  This was an American Express card and I went with AMEX after reading some people having issues with holds (probably Debit cards) but AMEX was quick to release these holds.

    Yes, you can get multiple apps, sides and desserts, but only one entrée. Everything is great. I really enjoyed the lamb chops.

    I assume you're talking about the specialty dining?  I ordered 2 or 3 entrees in the MDR with no problem but never tried it in Chops.
