  1. Hmmm....debating whether to cancel a cruise because they insist on testing, when you book the cruise, where as testing is required. Interesting....
  2. Now things are really trending toward some sense of normalcy...I wonder when "Amplication" will resume? Also, any ideas on the Utopia Class?
  3. Which, I feel will continue to be the case; because, the science says vaccinated persons are leading candidates of spreading the virus, and RCG, stated, the staff will continue to be fully vaxxed & boosted... not to mentioned the 80+ percent passengers. Cruise lines would serve themselves better, to forgo it all together, like most of society.
  4. Yeah......protocols tend to never go away & they all will opt-in; pre-covid cruising is done forever. <smh>
  5. Like policy, once standard behavior protocols are in place, they tend to never go away. So, although covid hysteria is fading away, like most other infectious outbreaks; something new will take its place, to keep the "new normal" going....and I'm not talking about another variant.
  6. Really, you can't go wrong with any view. 270° put the cruisers view closer to the water; neither less, can't go wrong with either one.
  7. This would be my guess...with dual use, for potential future overnight guess accommodations
  8. A Lazy River would be a great addition...really, at all of RCG private destinations.
  9. I think they were advised what potentially would happen & how it could effect their record
  10. This make utterly no sense whatsoever....why would a multi-billion dollar company, segregate a ship with clearly different protocols(which is not a good "PR" look), just to "Discourage" non-vax passengers from sailing...when the multi-billion dollar company can simply, just say "Vax Only Cruise" like what's currently happening on Adventure otS. This clearly an attempt by RCG to maximize revenue...by any means necessary. Which is understandable business decision, imo opinion; because, of the huge amount of unnecessary occurred debt, by all these cruise lines. Make no mistake about it....this is maximize revenue generating decision, by playing both sides(cake & pie) of newly implementing Laws. Cruising is risking, not just the probability of an outbreak on any particular cruise...but the amount of potential monies loss by passengers, be it testing added expense, interruptions, infection(vax or un-vax), forfeit travel plans, possible separation or removal of family members, cost to get back into the States, etc This makes no sense as well....a "shrewd" business opportunity to snag passengers, in the mist of a so-called "pandemic", where as, all cruise lines are in the same boat. Ha Ha...looky-there...I made a pun too.
  11. Kinda suspect the Icon will be a hybrid Oasis/Quantum class ship
  12. One by far, twilight on the high-seas...i love seeing the atmosphere & distant conditions during twilight...love it. 2nd: a good beverage(?) while enjoying the pool with the Mrs. & friends; and, specifically on Oasis Class, a good beverage(?) at Trellis Bar during the early evening, with the Mrs. friends, and strangers. Finally...Mingling. People are interesting & share really fascinating tales & experiences. I really enjoy the many conversations with strangers & believe it or not, one can actually learn something new or pov from the casual interactions.
