    I wouldn't be surprised if there's a movement to mandate HEPA filters on cruise ships despite the statistics that show that the transmission of viruses and diseases is much more likely on land.
    The bottom line is if you act like an idiot and expose yourself, not wash your hands and take measures anywhere, you'll get sick.

    Yup, I agree.  The price of that sailing was high enough without adding various drink packages for the 3 of us.

    My guess this is one way they are going to try and make up for the hiatus in sailing this year.  People will pay the prices.  Not everyone, but there are those that will pay it.

    I just looked at my Nov '21 sailing on Harmony (RCBGC over Thanksgiving) and saw $84/day for the UBP.  That is steep in my opinion.  I know I can book it now and hold it to see if price drops.  But, I am probably going to wait and see what happens with it.  Plenty of time between then and now.

    DublinFC got a reaction from Ogilthorpe in Air 2 Sea and Cruise Planner Confusion   
    That was my thought as well.  I had to call twice, my mother called while I was on hold the 1st time.  Always have to answer when mom calls 🙂.  Anyway, both reps mentioned small charges.  The 2nd rep was looking into the charges so I took the time to make the post while on hold.  My floating beach mats, gratuities, and taste of royal lunch were applied to the flights.  I was able to make the actual payments for the flights, just waiting on an updated invoice from my TA to make sure all is well now.  When cruising operations are back to normal I think I am going to call again to make sure everything has been worked out correctly.

    100% agree, but I want my darn cruise 🙂  But, yes if we are cancelling at that time cruising will be the least of our concerns.

    Use the drop down menu near the top to change ports.  They are all Florida/Caribbean ports though.

    Hate to hear people are now losing their jobs over the current COVID-19 situation.  I hope things turn around soon and they can be brought back to work.

    I have to agree with @Zachariusthis is just a suggestion.  I understand the concern people have.  The media is really playing this up.  We are going to the DR for a week at a resort and we are looking forward to every minute we have there.

    DublinFC reacted to Tim B. in Oasis Denied and MEI Awesomeness   
    I know catchy title but the worst happened this week. I have a cruise for this Sunday, 8 March 2020 on Oasis of the Seas. We booked this cruise a year and half ago and was really looking forward to it. I woke up Tuesday morning with the room spinning out of control and feeling very nauseous. I knew that feeling, it was the flu. Knowing I couldn’t just ride it out I had to go to the doctors and get a note indicating my status to inform RCI.  Under the rules I had to be 14 days well to sail and I was well within that window.  
    So off I went to the walk-in clinic where they jabbed a cotton swab so far up my nose I thought they were hitting brain. Nurse puts it in a container and says I will be back in 10 minutes to let you know the results. PA walks in next and says what I already suspected- Influenza Type A....UGH! There goes the trip. At this point I send an email to @michelle at MEI to let her know what was going on. 
    Michelle let us know our options - Go to insurance (always get insurance people) and get the money back or she would TRY and rebook us but no promises. She had me choose 3 cruises by priority and she would give them a call. This morning I woke up to a new cruise in December 2020 and all the previous items for the Oasis cruise will be refunded and the cruise money itself will transfer over to new cruise. I just have to replan the cruise for what we want to do. I love doing that already so I’ll have fun doing a new cruise planner. 
    I found about MEI from this blog, as I have never had an agent before, and this is a classic case of why they are so important. I have learned so much from this site so thanks to @Matt for starting this blog forum. 
    Plug for Michelle - she did an awesome job in a very short amount of time and I am so thankful for her help. If you ever thought of an agent but said no, I could do it myself, think again...I would still be on the phone with the flu trying to fix this mess. Instead I was home in bed taking Tamiflu and getting rid of this flu without having to rebook or fight the insurance for a refund!
    Thanks again and maybe this thread can help someone else in the future if the worst happens to you pre-cruise week. 
     
    Oh BTW - someone should be getting a Royal-up for Junior Suite 12636 soon since I had to cancel. And, I did have a flu shot this year so It didn’t work so well.

    I am looking forward to eating at JR just for the atmosphere and the feel of a diner.  My dad used to take me to one as a kid and it was always a good time.  I am sure the food will be similar to a quick service type of meal, but i am alright with it.  When the meal is finished and if I dont think its worth a 2nd time then oh well I tried it.  I think vacation is the time to try new/different things.  Especially on a cruise where usually if you do not like the food served you can get something else and still have a good meal.

    The equipment needs to fit properly -- something you don't need to wrestle with. There are some newer styles that are worth checking out. On my older gear, the strap around the snorkel attachment keeps getting twisted.
