  1. I just returned yesterday from a 7Night cruise on Harmony and on embarkation day which was May 1st, 2022 I had dropped my bags off before my checkin time which was 11:30/12:00 but I had to wait in a very long line for about an hour before I even entered the cruise terminal. Once I was in the terminal it was about 20 minutes going through security screening to boarding the ship before I boarded the ship. I was on Mariner April 19th, 2022 & I entered the cruise terminal after my checkin time @11:00/11:30 and it took 15 minutes for me to board the ship. I even dropped my bags off toward the end of my checkin time. I embarked on independence on March 21st,2022 & I had dropped off my bags a few minutes before my checkin time @ 11:00/11:30 which I had to arrive between my checkin window for my cruise on independence that embarked on March 21st,2022. Also I had to wear a mask checking in for independence in March & April when I checked in @ the cruise terminal for Mariner, & I had to wear a mask in the cruise terminal to go through customs just to re-enter the United States in March & April but for my cruise on Harmony I did not have to wear a mask when checking in or when going through customs to re-enter the United States. All 3 cruises that I went on since March 2022 had embarked & disembarked in port Canaveral.
  2. When i visited Nassau last month as a port stop there was construction in the port area.
  3. On my last cruise I didn’t purchase an internet package & i didn’t put my phone in airplane mode; I just connected mi iPhone to the ship’s free guest wifi and I was able to use the free royal caribbean app, camera calculator, settings, fitness, watch, & calendar apps & I could use 20 of the apps on my Apple Watch that don’t need to connect to the internet
  4. I used a Walgreens rapid naat test and it was accepted for my recent sailing on March 21st, 2022 because I tested negative for covid: i think that a rapid antigen test from cvs will be accepted for sailings that is very soon after testing negative for covid
  5. I scheduled that exact same test @ Walgreens for my Mom & I but they tested her & I at the same time at the person who had the last appointment in the vehicle. My mom’s appointment was 15 minutes before mine but the tested both of us @ my appointment time because we were in the same vehicle. hope that helps.
  6. You can get a passport if you want but since you are leaving & returning to Port canaveral that is a closed loop cruise from US seaports so all you need is your driver's license & birth certificate.
  7. Add April 14th 2023 Mariner of the seas.
  8. It’s not normal to get an email when online checkin opens. Online checkin opened for my March 21st sailing on February 4th but I did not get an email when online checkin opened.

  15. My mom & I will be going on our first back to back on Independence in March 2022 & I would like any tips that people who have been on back to back cruises can inform me about back to back cruises If it helps we are staying in the same stateroom. I also have a couple of questions that I want answered: 1st question: if I purchase a beverage package for the first part of the voyage & I want the same drink beverage package for the second part of the voyage do I have to purchase it for both of the cruises? 2nd question: My mom and I will be driving to port Canaveral and parking @ the terminal and I want to know if we would have to pay parking for both cruises or just the first cruise? 3) When getting off the ship for the first half of the voyage does my mom & I have to bring our luggage with us off the ship and back on when we board the ship for the second half of the voyage or can we leave the luggage in the room since we are in the same stateroom for both parts of the voyages?

  17. Replace Mariner April 19th, 2022 with Independence March 25th, 2022.
  18. You will get cheaper price if you purchase anything in the cruise planner site vs if you were to reserve the same things that could be purchased before the cruise while you on the ship. if you pre-purchase anything in the cruise planner you can cancel it and repurchase if the price goes lower & also if you changed your mind you can cancel that purchase. For example: I’m sailing on harmony May 2022 & when I purchased the soda package the cruise planner listed the price at $8.99 pp/pd plus 18% gratuity where as if I were to purchase the soda package on the ship it would be $13.50pp/pd plus gratuity, so by pre-purchasing I already saved $4.51 pp/pd plus gratuity.
  19. Traditionally royal releases there Black Friday deals for cruises & cruise planner days before thanksgiving
