  1. Looking forward to seeing this in person next year!
  2. I had cancelled cruise planner purchases on 5/15 and no refund. Last night I DM'd RCCL on twitter letting them know I cancelled on 5/15 and and asking when I can expect my refund. Their response: "Thank you for this info, and I apologize for the delay. I will go ahead and set up the refund for you. You should receive your funds within 30-45 days." I asked why this wasn't set up to process back in May and I've already been waiting 45 days. Their response: "I'm not sure why, but I have taken care of it and I'm glad I was able to resolve this for you." So now I'm waiting again. Hopefully the refund will be coming soon! I wonder what would have happened if I had not contacted them?
  3. We've stayed at the Hilton Baltimore Inner Harbor which is right next to Camden Yards and had a great stay. We ate Irish food at Tir Na Nog Irish Grill & Bar at Inner Harbor which is right next to the Top of the World Observation Tower, the USS Torsk WWII submarine, and the National Aquarium all at Inner Harbor. In the other direction of the hotel (by University of Maryland) was Edgar Allen Poe's gravesite at the Westminster Church Cemetery. Just up the street from there is the Lexington Market which is an inside market that's been around since the 1700's. It's got a lot of food stalls and delis. We ate crabcakes at Faidley's which are so good and the size of a softball. We didn't have a car and we were able to walk everywhere even with our son who was about 10 at the time. If we had more time in Baltimore, I would have liked to visit Fort McHenry which inspired the Star Spangled Banner.
  4. Which of these rooms did you like better? I’m looking at booking these exact same rooms ? which do you think would be better for 3 people?
  5. We were already booked on Ovation for next May but now I’m trying to decide about switching to Quantum? I was excited to go to Skagway so I’m not sure I want to give that up. I need to do more research on Sitka and Icy Straight Point.
  6. Neighboring Seminole County just did the same 14 day self quarantine for cruise travelers
  7. When I was looking into cabins in that same area I found this video about cabin 6682 on Ovation. I’m not sure how much smoke goes up to the 7th deck?
  8. We stayed at the Best Western Plus Oceanside Inn on Seabreeze Blvd. It's a minute walk to the beach, very reasonably priced, and breakfast was included. It was great to take a walk on the beach both in the evening and before heading to the port in the morning. ?️ About a 10 minute walk up Seabreeze Blvd, there were restaurants and shops.
  9. I’m not the original poster but this is a great thread! I had no idea that you could call and add to your insurance at a later time!
  10. I've been looking into these 2 excursions as well, looks like one is much longer and offers food, but they look so similar. Hopefully you'll get some responses from someone who's been on one of these excursions!
  11. We had the same experience with the Kummelweck on Harmony, it wasn't very good at all.
  12. I see, thank you! I've been reading the Alaska Cruise Handbook and trying to plot out our route on the map ?
  13. I was looking at map and I have a question about the route Ovation takes on the round trip Seattle/Alaska cruise. Does the ship actually go northbound east of Vancouver Island? Or does it go northbound on the west side of the island? And which way does it go on the southbound return trip?
  14. Interested in this as well even though our Ovation cruise isn't until May 2021 ?
  15. Here’s a picture of the map I received last week which shows Breezy Bay. The snorkeling area is the regular Chill area, not the newly named Breezy Bay area.
  16. You’re welcome! We have gone searching for local freestyle machines and have found Fanta Zero in all the fruit flavors at Firehouse Subs, BurgerFi and Five Guys ? my son loves the Fanta Zero Fruit Punch flavor.
  17. Our local Publix and Target carry cans and 2 liters of Fanta Zero but only in Orange. It looks like Fanta Zero Strawberry is only available through fountains and freestyle machines. https://www.coca-colaproductfacts.com/en/products/fanta-zero/strawberry/fountain-drink/
  18. On Harmony there were no vegan desserts at the Windjammer buffet but they offered to make one.
  19. I’m currently on Harmony and the bottled water included in the refreshment package is a brand called ‘True’
  20. We boarded Harmony this morning. They asked us 3 questions:: 1) have we been to China, Hong Kong, or Macau in the last 15 days, 2) were we in close contact with anyone from these areas in the last 15 days (that we were aware of) and 3) did we have any flu symptoms in the last 7 days. We answered no to all and that was it.
  21. I was wondering the same thing! Hopefully someone has an answer ?
  22. We stay at the Country Inn & Suites in Port Canaveral. Free breakfast, free wifi, and free overnight parking. They also have a shuttle if you need it. Keep checking prices... our rate dropped quite a bit as we got closer to cruise time.
  23. Airboat ride on the St. John's River
  24. I just repriced as well and I had originally used OBC to purchase, and when I cancelled the refund was credited back to original form of payment (in my case OBC) so I was able to re-purchase right away again.
  25. I have a cabin 7570 booked on Ovation and the confirmation says it's 50% obstructed. I've searched google and youtube and can't find any reference to this specific cabin. I'm thinking the obstruction (other than looking down on the lifeboats) is a davit?
