    This list is not accurate. We returned from a south pacific cruise last saturday and nothing is mention about the 5 islands who refuse us. I think Royal is on a day-to-day basis with the itinerary. The least they say so you not cancel, the better for them. If I knew my cruise would have been diverted to New Zealand prior to departure and if the cancellation policy was like it is today by the time I left home, I would have cancel. We had 6 sea days instead of 4 on a 11 days cruise. It was not Oasis but you reach a point that you want to get out and see something.

  2. I just return from the south pacific cruise... that only stop in Noumea and 30 minutes after all aboard, they announced the 5 remaining ports were cancelled. My trip of a lifetime, celebrating my 40th snorkeling in paradise disappeared. we then sailed to new zealand, no fishies, cold water and mostly cloudy in rought seas and got a compensation of 10%. since i used FCC to pay a part of this cruise (grandeur cancelled late august), the OBC received was lower. No fault of Royal but such a disapointing trip. I totally understand you. At least, you have the chance to cancel prior to departure.

  3. I personally came back from a south pacific cruise last saturday. I find that royal crew is doing beyond their best to provide us with a safe environment. They wipe the walls in the hallway, sometime in our cabin, the handrails and handles in the hallway at every shift... I still saw so many people (sorry but mostly 60's and older), coughing open air, no tissue, no elbow, no hands... I just read that both US and Canadian government recommend to avoid cruises. From my recent trip, I would say that the airplane represents the most potential transmission area. 

    Up to you to cancel, I never felt the virus was an issue during my trip (except all those islands refusing the ship in fear of the virus!)

  4. Up there, it is only other vendors. I only visit once, I knew what I was looking for so I enter only one hut. Bought it and on my way to exit, the man asked to help his family. He wasn't rude or insistent, I bought one more thing from him and left. All other vendors were looking at us leaving, they ask to visit their huts. I just felt sad and want to give more to this helpless population. In no way we felt unsecured or harass. We speak french so a little chitchat probably help.

  5. Cozumel is my home away from home. spent 2 holidays renting a condo in paradise! You want to go to Cava del Duero , Av. Lic. Pedro Joaquin Coldwell 599 B, Centro, 77600, Cozumel. It was refered to us by a local as the cheapest booze on the island. Good selection available and we got great tequila at half the price from home (Canada). Maybe on your way out of the port, check prices so you have something to compare with. Hope this help! Have a good trip!

    FYI: When we  sailed on Grandeur in January of 2018, we were supposed to have a 9-night cruise that was shortened to 7-nights due to a departure delay (Grandeur needed a rudder repair in Port Canaveral) After our cruise, we were still awarded the full 9 C&A Points. Hopefully, you can still gain the points you were expected to accrue, or at least partial points.

    Thank you for the info! In any case, i'll wait to see if points are added before looking at my options

  7. My husband and I were on this shortest cruise ever! We turned back before the H895 bridge! A bit sad it was cancelled, it was our first suite, needing the points to get to diamond level for our voyager cruise in february, in time for my anniversary... we already have 14 nights on explorer in december so don't know if we will be able to reschedule, there's a limit to weeks vacations one can have!!! Hope the best for Grandeur for the upcoming cruise! Due to the labor day weekend, it was a bit difficult to find a flight: 800$ for a return flight to montreal?! We decide to stay 2 nights in baltimore and booked a flight tuesday at 253pp. We enjoy the aquarium today, seeing more fish than our bermuda trip would have allowed! And as said previously, with the storm heading north, it would have been rocky on our way back. It wasn't meant to happen, that's all! I feel sorry for fellow passengers who didn't handled it well... people complaining everywhere about paying too much for this missed trip, not considering the great offer FCC is. 

  8. I've done Chef's Table twice so far, onboard Majesty last september and on Grandeur during the holidays. For what I understand, they have 2 menus. We got the same one twice.I checked the menus posted  here. It's not our menu. It might be depending of the ship, that's my guess. We didn't book it on the cruise planner. The chef's table waiter asked us in the MDR, they tend to spot the one who have wine at night. We paid 65 on grandeur and were only 3 couples. We saw a price chart at the Maitre D' desk. 65 is the lowest possible, probably 'cause it was far from sold out. I've always seen it at full price on cruise planner.

  9. I receive an email about a delay boarding on serenade of the seas for this sunday. it is due to customs.

    is anyone experience this on previous cruise and how long of a delay should we be expecting?

    they mention to arrive no early than 12. my seapass was schedule to 11-11h30.

    what time do you recommend to show up?

    thank you!

  10. We were on Grandeur for the 2018-19 celebrations. They did have a special menu in the dinning room, french cuisine based. We had booked Chop's but the menu was the regular menu plus they offered a 1/2 bottle of moet for 79$/pp. not worth it so we cancel and we choose a nice champagne instead. all the bands were playing in different venues around the ship. they had a ''special'' for a VIP table around the centrum. appetizers, one bottle of dom perignon and dedicated waiter for....900$. again, not worth it.
