  1. Yes, mistakes do happen, but a simple phone call to C&A would resolve the status issue. I don’t find the wording in the terms & conditions confusing at all. (A Crown & Anchor Society member can be added into a relationship with other family members in the same household and receive equivalent tier status; however Cruise Points will remain according to actual cruises taken and calculated using the Program level accrual system described above.)
  2. Sadly, I do not think anyone will be cruising for quite a while. I believe the clinical trials for children will have ended and all who want a vaccine will have access by the time we cruise. If the vaccine is required to cruise, only those who can not or will not be vaccinated will not be allowed to cruise. Of course, I do hope I’m wrong and cruises will begin much earlier. In that case, vaccines will likely be required - even if that means the first cruises will be without children.
  3. Once a person is linked to another, both receive points even if both do not cruise. For example, I have cruised a whopping 7 nights more than my husband and it was in a suite. His cruise history (that is, his actual cruises) show he has 376 points. His C&A level states Diamond Plus 390 points. The same is true for a minor child in relationship with a parent. The child could cruise one time and have 5 C&A points in his cruise history, but his C&A status would show his parent’s level and points. For example: Diamond 170 points. His cruise history would still show his 5 C&a
  4. Although we have had multiple cruises canceled this year, only one is listed in past cruises. The only reason I can imagine it is there is that we have outstanding FCC for only that cruise. Of course, no points were awarded since the cruise was not completed. FYI- the extra credit for suites did not begin until 2004. Beginning in 2003, an extra cruise credit was awarded for cruises of 12+ nights. Prior to 2003, all cruises earned 1 credit. Although credits were converted to points in January 2011 and reflect in the total points earned, we all continue to see 1 or 2 points for every p
  5. It is my understanding that the answer depends on who canceled the cruise. If we we cancel, we will not receive a Travel Protection Plan refund. If Royal cancels, we will receive a Travel Protection Plan refund.
  6. From NextCruise Terms and Conditions: 3. Cancellations. If the guest cancels a NDN Booking the cancellation terms applicable to your booking (which may vary from country to country) will apply. For Junior Suite and below categories, the reduced deposit will be held in full penalty (i.e., forfeited). If additional monies have been added to the booking fulfilling the required minimum deposit amount prior to cancellation and the final payment due date, Royal Caribbean will issue a future cruise credit (“FCC”) for the required deposit amount less the $100 per person service fee. For Grand S
  7. The suite perk that I enjoy the most is that the Concierge will make dinner reservations in speciality restaurants for us pre-cruise. We like to purchase the 3 night dining package. Royal will assign the restaurant the first night, but it isn’t always our choice. Rather than going to a speciality restaurant upon boarding to book the nights/locations we prefer, we have found the Suites Concierge will do this for us. He/she will email 5-7 days before the cruise with a list of perks and offer assistance. We reply to the email that we have X package and would like to request he/she make the r
  8. Is your Thanksgiving Cruise on Anthem this year or in 2021? Since Allure wasn’t due to move to Galveston until November 2021, I’m not expecting any announcements until the current crisis is over.
  9. I believe Allure has to have SOLAS required routine maintenance and inspections, including azipod repairs, so it might be possible that smaller changes such as converting Sabor to a new speciality could be possible. Maybe?
  10. We had to switch from MTD to early traditional on our Voyager cruise in February because MTD actually started at 7 (may have been 6:45). I’ll check the Compass. Due to health issues, I can’t eat that late. I love MTD so I hope this isn’t going to be fleetwide. EDIT: Just checked the Compass and.MTD was listed as 6:45-9 PM only.
  11. It has always been my understanding that if I didn’t pay my balance by final payment due date, I would forfeit my entire deposit. Has that changed? So far, I believe the only cancelations that have made by RCCL for cruise dates before final payment was due are Alaskan and possibly a few New England cruises. I believe they were given the option to move the deposit to a later cruise date with no NRD penalty or receive 100% refund.
  12. That would depend on why you received the OBC. As I understand it, if the OBC is from booking through NextCruise, it is supposed to automatically transfer. If from BOA points, you can ask that points be returned to your Rewards account; if received because they were a part of a booking promotion, none of the promotion carries forward to your replacement cruise. OBC from a TA would vary based on agency’s policies.
  13. (My opinion only since many 70+ year olds are healthier than much younger people) In a perfect world, all passengers and crew would need written consent from their physician. We, however, do not live in a perfect world.
  14. We are booked on the 4 night November 10 and 7 night November 14 and were able to get the same owners suite on the starboard hump for both - great prices yesterday morning! We are very excited about Allure in Galveston. Lori & Steve
  15. No reduced price for WiFi simply for being in a suite on Voyager Class. Check the Cruise Planner frequently for sales. I order the 2 device Surf & Stream plan if I find it for $18.99 or less per day and only click on one name when ordering. This way, my husband and I can each be logged onto one device each at the same time. That tends to be cheaper than each buying our own one device package.
