  1. I feel your pain. Just keep in mind that the pandemic has truly hobbled the supply chain. We bought a new house in late February and had it inspected in early March. The inspection showed that one of three burners were inoperable. We had them order the parts immediately. It remains on factory backorder. It would not be so awful if it were not the only burner that includes the simmer option (it is a gas range-so that really matters.) Hang in there.
  2. Thanks for letting us know. I am sure you have lots of other things to worry about, but I am glad to know that things are progressing well.
  3. Just wanted to let you know that I hope all goes well tomorrow! I’ll be thinking of you. More importantly, please remember that beauty comes from the inside out-not the other way around. This, whatever the outward appearance of your foot, it cannot impact the the true beauty of your essence.
  4. I found lots of places along the beach in St Martens that had 2 chairs, an umbrella AND a bucket of 6 beers for $20. Awesome beach
  5. Very stressful! Selling our house was easy! Purchasing has been another story. The housing market is crazy.
  6. I have been really busy the last week or so with my job and finally finding a new house. We sold in December and have been renting. We have finally found the perfect house for us! Yay! I am sure ya'll aren't interested in that, but I obviously missed something. What was the Star Class announcement on Tuesday? Thanks.
  7. The bar tender was always available in the suite lounge on Harmony in August of 2019. In fact, as soon as I walked in for breakfast each morning, a mimosa was ready within seconds of my arrival (whether I wanted or not-although of course, I always wanted it!) All in all, I did not find the suite service on Oasis to be nearly as great as it was on Harmony.
  8. Sorry, I mistyped. I was on Oasis in March of 2020! Second to last cruise before they stopped. And yes, I do think cruises will be operational by March 2022.
  9. I was Sky class on Oasis in March 2020, and I will echo Waaaytooo's comments above. When the bar tender was there, he was great, but he was often absent.
  10. I use Sharla at MEI. She is incredibly responsive. I have never waited more than 12 hours for a response to an email, even on the weekend. She checks frequently for price drops and reprices even if the savings is only a few dollars. She is knowledgeable about both ports of call and embarkation ports. I have used AAA in the past and am far happier with MEI. I am not sure how the payment process works, but my credit card statement shows direct payment to Royal, even though I give the number to Sharla. Best of luck!
  11. I agree with everything said on this topic. I will give a personal endorsement for Sharla. She has been awesome and patient in helping navigate these tricky times.
  12. I am trying to figure out a 2022 Alaska trip, since it appears that our 2021 one is off. The last time I went to Alaska, Skagway was my favorite port because I loved the train trip up into the mountains. It was so beautiful! Plus, I love trains. Several of the 2022 itineraries list Haines, but not Skagway as a port of call. My 2021 cruise planner had both Skagway and Haines and listed the same shore excursions for both. Hence, my question: is the train in Skagway an option for a shore excursion from Haines. As always, thanks.
  13. Even if they can get a waiver for the PVSA, several itineraries sail out of Vancouver, so that would not make a difference there.
  14. I'm glad you're back. I have missed hearing from you and your lovely family.
  15. It looks like the decision on cancelling Quantum in Alaska for 2021 was based on the fact that the ship is in Singapore and is able to sail there. I am booked on Serenade for August 2021-does anyone know where Serenade is now and whether that may impact the likelihood of sailing? I realize this is all speculation.
