  1. You might have a slightly better chance in August.... ours was early July. Either way... fingers crossed for all cruising to start up sooner rather then later.
  2. Well.... Alaska is off the table for us... we thought about holding out to the bitter end and hope that there was still a chance for AK to be a go.... but there was just too many signs saying it most likely wont happen... even with all the pressure on the CDC. Also... what kind of cruise would it really be with all the potential restrictions and rules etc. So we bit the bullet and have lifted ours to 2022. The countdown is on again.... for the 3rd time.
  3. Agreed with the above statements.... we've been twice to Coco Cay and the layout is so well done that you never feel overly crowded. We haven't gone to the water park, and have heard mixed things about the crowds there, which really leads me to believe that the water park crowds can vary greatly depending on the time year, the ship, the make up of the passengers, etc. Such as, if its summer vacation with a ship full of families, prob going to be a little more crowded than in the middle of winter with schools in session. But also.... time of day can vary greatly.... I think @Matt did a
  4. Both are awesome.... you cant go wrong with either choice. If you haven't been on either one, you wont be disappointed. Personally, I'm a sucker for getting the most bang for my buck... so if it was me, I would go with the cheaper of the two options as you will basically be getting the same experience with both ships in general. Plus then you can use that savings for another cruise or as fun money while on the cruise. But, as mentioned before... take into account all in costs as well... such as transportation to and from the port. That could sway your decision depending on your
  5. I like the change of pace from the usual placement and size. While I think they could of done something more creative and possibly keep some of the classic elements... it seems RCL doesn't move to far from the norm, too fast.... despite them being trail blazers in mega ships. Go figure?
  6. We've started tossing around the idea of flying up and spending a week exploring ourselves.
  7. So Royal is expecting to have an 'update' tomorrow, the 12th, regarding the Canada situation.... one would hope and wish they would just go ahead and give everyone on effected cruises the same options to cancel, refund, credit, and/or L&S just as if the cruises were officially cancelled. But I have a feeling the update is going to be just more hot air about how they are reviewing all options and will keep us up to date with more info in the future.... blah blah blah. Been emailing our TA about L&S already..... told her that if they do officially cancel... here's the option for L&
  8. Now, we'll still prob. have to wait weeks and weeks for RCL to respond with cancellations.
  9. Most likely the same thing her friend is thinking.... except her friend looks way more excited! LOL
  10. Bloody Mary for 1st breakfast Irish Coffee for 2nd breakfast VRB (vodka redbull) for the lull Long island iced tea for 1st lunch pina colada for 2nd lunch (water... lots of water) Coconut mojito lava flow for the down time Wine with first dinner beer with 2nd dinner ask bartender to surprise me before entertainment (water.... lots of water.... and more water) old fashioned gatorade sleep.... shower... repeat. CHEERS!
  11. I can pack my bags and be at Port Canaveral in about 5 hours... lets do this!
  12. Pro Tip: if you are on an Oasis class ship that also has a Wonderland restaurant (i.e. Harmony OTS) .... they have a Bar above the dining area that you can get drinks from without actually having to go and dine at wonderland. Our bartender knew what he was doing!!!! We had the UDP and made it a point to go see him almost every night! Made us some of the best drinks on and off menu!! A definite hidden gem of a place to get drinks. Also.... Wonderland was a very neat experience too! (if you are into new and different things) But if you are the kind of person that gets Chicken tenders and f
  13. Just FYI, while cruise planner sales are usually region and sail date specific... just wanted to let people know who are booked for Alaska in 2021, you should check your cruise planner for discounts. Just looked myself... and the DBP went from 57 down to $43, Voom for 2 devices went from $27 ( I think) down to $18. So these are real discounts on the prices and not that fake banner sale price with funny %off math they show all the time. Went ahead and scooped up some items with the Bonus OBC we had from our cancelled cruises earlier this year.
  14. Forgot the deck we were on... but it was about halfway up in Central Park. No issues at all. Been on 3 of the oasis class ships, and can only remember one time feeling the boat move.
  15. Completely understand that thought process.. and I think each person has to weigh that in their decision to cruise or not.... personally.... sign me up! lol But I think we all hope things get back to some form of normality soon.
