Diamond (5/7)



  1. I'll be there! Probably just me -- DH doesn't want to travel just yet. Hoping to make it my first S2S -- will be boarding Oasis on the 5th.
  2. Hmmm -- how does one view the actual error message from the server? And what does "the reservation is locked" imply?
  3. My thanks to all who commented! I hope your issues with Cruise Planner are resolved soon @WAAAYTOOO and @SpeedNoodles. That is one part of the RCL process that continues to work on my end.
  4. I'm looking for feedback on how to "manage" the RCL app. I've uninstalled/reinstalled it twice on my iPhone with the same results, which are: My reservation on Freedom OTS (4 night) in 134 days keeps on showing up as "We're working on the fun. Check back later for more details. Sailing on a Charter [no, I'm not]? Details of your adventure await onboard." , but my Oasis OTS (7 night) in 140 days shows up in all its glory. Any ideas on how/why I can / cannot see the earlier sailing on the app?
  5. I think that my current reticence is based on not wanting to jinx myself or our cruise
  6. I will be S2S (kind of) -- Freedom OTS 29 Nov - 3 Dec and then over to Oasis for this cruise. Freedom was originally supposed to be Navigator, but then RCL decided to move Navigator to the West Coast. Looking forward to my first S2S and my first Oasis-class ship!
  7. I was shocked to see it -- and quick to purchase it!
  8. Perfect Day Coco Beach Club on Freedom OTS (29 Nov - 3 Dec) for $46.99!!
  9. Per the FAQ page you linked to, "Members will receive double Cruise Points on bookings made through June 30, 2021 for sailings departing January 1, 2021 to September 30, 2022."
  10. Possible update -- Cruise Planner for my reservation on Navigator for 29 November - 3 December 2021 (**WAS FLL-Nassau - Coco Cay - FLL) now shows as "Cancelled" but with a new itinerary -- LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - CATALINA ISLAND, CALIFORNIA - ENSENADA, MEXICO) in the title box.
  11. I believe they had a specific time to go through it; mission complete!
  12. Correction; it will pass through Emssperrwerk at 3:30 p.m. Pacific (6:30 Eastern). That's what happens when I don't check my phone's World Clock . . .
  13. Another "I wonder:" How does Odyssey (and its tugs) maintain its position in the Ems River while waiting for the next part of the conveyance through the Emssperwerk? Do they use anchors, or just continual position adjustment by the tugs? Since the speed numbers of the tugs vary between 0.0 and 0.2 knots, I assume the latter.
  14. I think I found the explanation; according to a German news article, it won't go through the "Emssperwerk" (the bridge at Gandersum) until 00:30 Local (i.e., 12:30 a.m. on the 28th). I'm sure it has to do with tides and river height. That should be 4:30 pm Pacific and 7:30 pm Eastern. Samstag, 27. Februar 2021 03:30 Uhr Schiff in Warteposition (Papenburg) 04:00 Uhr Passieren der Dockschleuse (Papenburg) 08:45 Uhr Passieren der Friesenbrücke (Weener) 12:00 Uhr Passieren der Jann-Berghaus-Brücke (Leer) Sonntag, 28. Februar 2021 00:30 Uhr Passage Emssperrwerk (Gandersum) 03:30 Uhr Schiff drehen auf Höhe Emden I wonder if, when it's on the move, its speed is in negative knots (kn) since it's going backwards . . .
  15. I notice that it's been "paused" for the last 10 minutes between Gandersum and Oldersum, and that an EMS boat is headed downriver (towards Eemshaven). Hopefully just a preparatory move toward the next section of the trip.
