  1. Oh, no!! That is disappointing. What complete roller coaster this past week has been! I guess I thought that most itinerary changes would have been sorted out before the announcement on Friday. I will have to mentally prepare myself for a potential change to the 8/14 sailing, as well. Thank you for the update!
  2. If you haven't heard about it, that makes me feel better!
  3. I just read (in a couple of places) that, at least for Symphony's 8/21 sailing (8 nights), the itinerary has been completely changed. Was supposed to be Labadee, Aruba, and Curacao, and (according to a couple of people who received an email) is now Nassau, St. Thomas, St. Maarten, St. Kitts & Nevis. Because I don't trust anything unless I read it here....a) has anyone else seen that change, and b) has anyone seen any other itinerary changes for Symphony? I'm on the 8/14 cruise, and, while feeling extremely lucky to potentially actually get to sail, also got really great deals on my excurs
  4. Just coming back to say that Symphony is out of dry dock and heading back across the Atlantic! Assuming a 10 day journey, she should be near the states by 6/17 https://www.cruisemapper.com/?imo=9744001
  5. I've been wondering the same thing. My 8/14 sailing of Symphony is no longer available to book (at least, I'm not seeing it), but there were a lot of cabins available when I looked earlier this week, so that made me think that they might be limiting capacity, at least for a bit?
  6. So, how confident do folks feel that the sailings that have been confirmed as going will truly go? I feel VERY lucky to be on the 8/14 Symphony sailing, but given that it is the first one out, I'm still really cautious about getting my hopes up. But, this seems like a big announcement that has been a long time coming, so.....are people feeling good about this being a pretty solid plan, and not just another delay that will end in more cancellations?
  7. I'm crossing my fingers with you. We booked 8/14 on Symphony pre-covid, and have been holding our breath. The 2022 August Symphony cruises are out of our price range at this point, even with the 125% FCC, so we would only want to Lift & Shift if canceled. I just looked on the RCL website, and the 8/14 sailing is not available to book at the moment. This could just be an IT glitch, or they are already at the capacity they want, but I'm feeling defeated at the moment. Still...fingers crossed.
  8. I know it is one state, but we were hit hard and slow to reopen, so it really is saying a lot if Gov. Murphy just ended the PHE in NJ today. https://twitter.com/GovMurphy/status/1400548584383262726?s=20
  9. If you go here , Richard Fain talks about it in the video, and Matt writes about the vaccine protocol in the blog post. I totally understand needing to see it with your own eyes. There has been a lot of "i heard x is happening" lately! And, as someone mentioned above, anything could still happen, but this is what the plan is currently.
  10. RCL has stated that they are not going to go the 98/95 route, which is why they have to do test cruises. They are still requiring all eligible passengers to be vaccinated, though. I’m so sorry about your cruise! What a disappointment.
  11. Do we know yet how long it needs to be between a test cruise and a paying cruise? Has actual information about that been shared yet?
  12. Yep! I stalk her location every morning to see if she's moved yet. I am hoping that because it is just a technical dry dock, she won't be over there for too long.
  13. He has since removed the ship names, but Brian Leavitt has posted this on his Instagram and Facebook feed. I know that this doesn't help me to figure out how long it will all take to get Symphony back up and running, but I will take any good news!
  14. This is great news! And, I didn't even think about that. He would be happy eating bread, and then grabbing something from the Windjammer or Sorrento's afterwards. Thank you so much!
  15. @tonyfsu21 I wanted to ask a question about this! My two kids (daughter will be 11, son will be 10) will be coming to most specialty restaurants with us on our Symphony cruise. We got the UDP, and are really excited about it. We plan to eat our meals together, and I'm a little concerned about my son. He is a genuinely picky eater (PBJ every. single. day. since the age of 3), and I'm concerned that even some of the kids menus will be too "adventurous" for him. I don't want to be a problem customer, but if we wanted to go to Wonderland or 150 CP, would they be able to get him something super bas
