  1. We're the week after you and received the same email last week. We're not losing sleep over it. Actually we were not shocked. It just seems like they are slowly creating a new itinerary. I wonder if they come back and put Labadee back in for the day we were suppose to be in OSJ. We have gone so far from OSJ-Labadee-St. Thomas - Coco Cay to OSJ-St.Maarten-St.Thomas I coco Cay . And now we are at St.marten - St Thomas - Coco Cay leaving the possibility for them to add in a new port.
  2. One thing to realize about cancelling and rebooking at a lower price is between the time you cancel and rebook they may sell out. We met a couple on our last cruise that lost their cabana doing that. There are limited cabanas and there could be 5000 passengers on that day. In essence if there are only 2 left, including the one you cancelled and 2 people book before you can rebook you are SOL. No cabana for you. What you should do is book the lower price under the name of someone in your cabin, I.e. your spouse/partner. Than go back and cancel the one under your name. This way you are
  3. YouWe too have been to Coco Day 3 times. (Nov, May and July). We have done no upgrade...I.e grab a lounger. We have done beach bed and we have done cabana (Chill island). Personally for me if it was just 2 of us I would grab the Coco Cay beach pass (we did that for our last cruise before we did the lift and shift....it was @49. Per person). Granted we would not have that cabana experience, but since they only limit to 225 or so people, we didn't feel the need for the 2 of us to go nuts and worry about finding lounge chairs. We want the food they offer. Hubby is a beach person, I am a p
  4. We lifted and shifted our May 2021 to 22 several months ago, we did it back in October, but it may have been early November. so you can see they definitely are offering May sailings. The original sail date was May 15th for 7 nights on SoS. We got the exact same cabin, but the sail date is May 1st. The itinerary changed a bit. It's no longer stopping at Labadee, but instead St. Martin.
  5. Out of curiosity how many county inspections do you have to do? Trying to figure out for the de!ay time between each inspection. IE we need 7 inspections by the county....survey, framing, grading-soil removal, plumbing, electrical, gunite, and fencing before we are allowed to do the water fill - can't get the water truck without the final inspection.
  6. If you are using their shuttle to get to the port they will stop at every terminal. The thing to realize is as the buses fill up, they will not open the doors. They travel as a group. So let's say they know they need 4 buses. At terminal 1 the 1st 2 buses open their doors number 3 and 4 do not. Bus 1 fills to capacity. Number 2 doesn't. Terminal 2 bus 2 and 3 open their doors, number 1 and 4 don't. So on and so forth. Thus, if you are hoping to ride the shuttle on the same bus that probably not going to happen. Are you flying non-stop? If not can you somehow meet the east co
  7. We watched it Saturday and laughed at how 4 people missed the ship at their 1st port. We felt for them, but laughed because we felt like it was a PSA from RCL They than made another hint at it when they docked late in Rome and if you decided not to use RCL for excursions the ship would not wait.
  8. I too believe they are probably reducing the load by not selling cabins. It may look like those cabins are sold when viewing on line, but in reality RCL just removed them from their inventory. Hope your cruise goes. We were suppose to be on her May 15th, however, we did the lift and shift back in Nov. Point being the cabin we had may have never gone back up for purchase, thus, reducing the load. On another forum, I have seen many posters stating they did the lift and shift too for the week of my cruise, my guess would be 50% did what we did. Our ship was 95% (guesstimate by doing
  9. I laughed about the very steep walk to Circular Quay. 2 years ago we stayed at the Intercontinental (located across the street from the botanical gardens) in Sydney and I can still remember walking down that hill to the Opera house wearing heels, I swear my husband still has bruises on his hand from my death grip. I could not imagine dragging luggage. Pretty sure I would have been just like your wife....add in some swear words. We were there in May and from our hotel room I watched Ovation dock one morning. All I thought was ... I am so jealous of the people getting on the ship. I th
  10. If you look at the photos, the supports for the fence are facing in towards their yard/house. Other photos show (back side) show no poles or supports. As a realtor that means the neighbor placed the fence up on their dime. IE D's has 3 walls of his fence showing the poles/supports inside. 1 wall is flat bc the neighbor already did the frame. NOW for them the gate to the backyard has to be flush with an alarm. Hard to scale
  11. So interesting. 1. As you can see that is why we have so much brushed concrete since it is required 36 inches for code around the entire perimeter.. 2. They use to allow just a gate at 6 ft., but now any new pool must have a metal fence at least 3 1/2 ft high surrounding the pool itself even if you have the privacy fence. In our area with your design, it looks like you walk right out to the pool from your back door, you would have to get the automatic pool cover and door sensor on the house with an alarm company for insurance. Virginia impo is a litigious state. Everything is CY
  12. @melmar02curious too on which you chose. In our area the pool builders do 1or the other, but not both. Thus, that is another factor when choosing your builder. We decided to go with chlorine, but took some of the design suggestions from the salt water pool people. Are you doing the remote control panels that you can doing everything from your tablet...I.e. Change pool lights, turn the bubbles on, etc? If so keep me updated on how you like it. I noticed from your renderings that you don't have a fence all the way around the pool. In our area there are 3 must have mandates for co
