  1. Maybe it's the language of the request...a refund versus a repricing.
  2. Was your cruise booked before the protocols were established? If it was, that would make a strong argument for a full cash refund. I've cancelled three so far, all booked prior to protocols, and have received cash refunds.
  3. But the original poster to this thread reported this: "They claim the CDC just made the rule for them and just told them today."
  4. Does anyone know if this "700,000 have sailed" figure includes those that sailed from Singapore during the pre-vaccine time period? Or does this only include US sailings along with the new Caribbean departure ports?
  5. We've liked using Next Cruise due to the reduced deposit feature. On our last few cruises, we've paid for the "certificate", taken it home and then booked our subsequent cruise within the time frame stated (30 days? 60 days?) It doesn't require getting an appointment at the Next Cruise desk, just fill out the form and drop it off. The only downside I found is that the TA I used to book some of our subsequent cruises still required I pay the full RC deposit and wouldn't accept only the certificate as the deposit. But I can't say that's the policy of all companies.
  6. I agree...I don't understand people who behave like that based on what someone's relationship is with a current pharmaceutical.
  7. Their website states parking is guaranteed. After cruising from there multiple times, finding a parking spot has never been an issue.
  8. My opinion is (after working the last seven years of my career in addictions) you definitely need a cruise. I hope this all works out as you sound like an honest person who wants to do the right thing by answering honestly.
  9. Are these the tests that had the expiration dates extended by 3 months?
  10. I received the email "Your Healthy Sailing Update - North America Protocols" last night. I read it, realized these are the same protocols that cruisers report complying with in recent months, and dumped it in the trash as nothing new. But today, reading this site, I realize that these protocols are in effect through March, 2022 (which covers 2 of the cruises I have booked) which is definitely NEW information. Don't you think that the protocols being extended that far out would be an important bit of information for Royal to include in this latest notification? I reviewed my email several times, and there is no mention of that date. So I guess I'll hold on to my January stateroom for now, pretending like I'm sailing (which I'm not) and using CWC to cancel at the last minute.
  11. I am often a "less is more" person except when it comes to cruising... More is Better!!! Go for the extra day already!
  12. I think someone posted on this blog previously that the fee went to $30 per day starting sometime in Oct. I'm no help with parking alternatives, I've only parked at the terminal. Good luck.
  13. This is the BAC Royal Caribbean Visa reward points screen. Items or onboard credits you can use your reward points to purchase.
  14. I'm not sure if it matters which you select, but when my husband and I cruise together I've always purchased the shared OBC and there hasn't been a problem with anything we've purchased. If I cruised solo, or with my sister, I would choose individual.
  15. I just got a trip tik last year when we were planning a driving trip. Requested it through the AAA website and if I remember correctly, received it through the mail within a week. Yeah, I know, sort of "old school", but since I pay for the membership I try to use it.
  16. And, apparently, they have much to say about it.
  17. Although we generally drive to cruise ports nearby for cruising, other travel plans usually have us flying SW. If I trust these professionals in the air with my life and safety, I can certainly trust them to make a personal health decision for themselves.
  18. Uh oh...here comes an @Matt lock down!
  19. Definitely sounds like a case of the "Blue Flu" to me (firefighters and police will get this reference).
  20. Gosh, it may be a new Royal Caribbean policy: - you can pick your cabin but can't keep your cabin. Hopefully, everyone will be assigned a cabin they can deal with for the length of their cruise and still have a great time! After all, you're still on a cruise!
  21. Yesterday via email I received the code: SAILOASIS for $50 off on Oasis cruises departing May-June 2022. I assume new bookings, but didn't read that far into it. It was combinable with other offers, though.
  22. I am also in the "prohibited" group who will be forced to continue to cancel our cruises booked pre-mandates. Fortunately for us, I can cancel almost last minute for a refund but unfortunately for Royal, that leaves no time to fill the room. And thank you @cruisellama, "not qualified" is one of the nicer things a "prohibited" person like me has been called on this blog!
  23. Any ideas about which protocols would be changed or cancelled? And I'm curious about the capacity limits - I've read posts on here where the passenger count seemed to be as low as 17% yet others at 30-40% - how is that determined I wonder?
  24. Aha. Ok, continue to impress me with which Carnival ship it is...
