  1. She's a keeper... Watched You tube how to just for the scan several times and none sunk in. She needs to tutor my sorry self I guess...
  2. QR Code!?! I'm lucky if I can figure how to get on line... can tell this is gonna be an adventure... CVS won't touch me with no insurance despite saying they will. Can't get a straight answer from Walgreens if they even do quick near me, Urgent care type can do it but at $160. Fiance' and her son can get done at CVS or Airport in Jersey. Her daughter can get done at school. I had to pass off a weeks job to a fellow I know to be available for the test. Was gonna get back night before cruise from Bahamas fishing trip but thats out the window and I had to hire that guy to fill in. Just me thats having a tough time getting done...
  3. Havn't opened the ones I got. Do I have to set up zoom app on my (Computer or phone)??? Do I need to scan something? If so I need instruction from my hyperhot hypersmart Fiance' I guess how to make that happen...
  4. Thanks... That explains it I guess... Had a similar thing with a doctors office last week. kind of... All the way through it was Info @ and the last link went to a not existent [email protected] Got sorted through that and ran into a lack of www... like this....
  5. I was able to get there off the main site to Optum store, but tried Matt's link again and still that way locks out?
  6. Needed to order more test kits and every alarm on my computer screaming about unsecure site???? Trying to enter through chrome using the link from the blogs main page and Matts article. Being told not secure, certificate cant be authenticated and flat out has me blocked from getting there. After several tries I was able to get to Royal's Q+a page???? Anyone else?... I went a few days ago and no problems.
  7. It arrived... My sister went and got me the un monitored one in the mean time (she knew I needed but not that it had to be the be the proctored one...) . Bless her little heart...
  8. Good thing I didn't need this in timely fashion. Two days astern and no delivery... Mot even shipped from what I can tell? See a disclaimer now in place pushing it to three, that wasn't there before...
  9. I do gamble some... Not a lot... Typically about $100 a night is what I am prepared to (and often do) lose... I have hit a couple home runs along the way and I have been handed a severe beating or two. I found the discipline to make my casino trips very limited...
  10. I want that free spin to try and win that key chain... After giving up 40 C+A points that they "misplaced". Going from emerald to gold runs my balcony prices up more than I should have to pay. I don't want to give up a single thing more... Even if it effectively means nothing...
  11. Been on plenty and checked just fine. This one check in itself went smooth. I noticed though that on computer "set sail pass" it says "choice". I get it. Thats a very low tier casino status title. I'm no big gambler so it fits I guess. Then on my phone app it doesn't show choice. As I will be boarding using phone does this mean I lose "choice" status? I am guessing it would get me a free spin trying to win a key chain but if that's what it is I'd still like at east that much... C+A already "lost" 14 years and 40 of my earned points with no resolution in 3+ years. I'd hate to think they are going to just stick me again on this????
  12. The day she came in she later went up river then out the Verrazano then came past me where I was fishing... The up river might trips have been a practice stop to see the statue and the freedom tower then a real one with guests last night... If it's gonna be a habit, I need to alter my striped bass September spot.... Right where they turned in is where I normally drift using eels for bait...
  13. Guess I'm the only one still admitting to being on this one...
  14. We also got the 1 check in times for my group. That might be the earliest? Other sailings I have seen earlier but seems this one is 1:00. Oasis slipped past me while I was fishing the other night .... Got my blood boiling in anticipation for this one...
  15. Next March... Original dates on original Indy sailing fit kids vacations this one only fits one (kind of).
  16. Am I missing options that I might not know about?
  17. She came past me the other evening while I was fishing. At first I though it was the Manhattan skyline paying tricks on me then I realized it was her massive frame sliding out for a spin...
  18. Few bookings in front of me. Some I'm over the top excited. Then one that just isn't sitting well with me... The great ones are fine. Not a thing I would change. The "one" I'm not sure if I can change even... It was originally booked as 5 night on Indy doing Labadee and Jamaica, great price, great dates that fit our kids school breaks... When RCL shuffled the deck, we were down graded to Mariner: with a different leaving port, different dates, Labadee (Wont happen likely) and Nassau? Worst part is its not blending with my fiance's kids school break datess. We would need to leave her daughter on shore for it and take her demonic son and a friend to kind of force fill that spot since she can't make it. I'm teasing about the demonic part but he requires a lot of "supervision"... He's also not so keen on cruising... At this point its just kind of an afterthought. One nobody is overly excited for. They never gave me a FCC option or Lift and Shift. It was take one of these two dates or its a flat refund. . Since he really doesn't want to go (he is psyched to be going on symphony on an earlier trip) we thought about cancelling one of our balconies and drop the kids..... Well.... This was purchased as one of those "second guest is 60% off" deals. Each kid falls under that so not much at all would come back if we cancel "the kids" . The whole trip was so inexpensive cancelling the whole thing wouldn't kick back enough for a good 3-4 night jump. It would however be a good deposit for something nicer where the kids don't go along at all. I don't want to just dump them all together but school vacations don't mesh til summer and this is an early spring thing if they did some how let me lift and shift. Do I just hang on to it and hope for the best? Do I get a refund on a fare so low I can't buy anything else? Do I eliminate the kids and use that refund for a deposit for fiance and me? Do I try to see if RCCL will work with me on shifting dates, ship and itinerary? I often get stuck on easy questions like this and I do value your input...
  19. Thank you... For some reason that top line wasnl showing when I went to the page. Needed to redo my cookies...
  20. I asked this in another thread. I was answered........Kind of ???????? Every place that I read about the new tests said through August31???? I was told by others here that it was extended til December? I don't doubt it but I stull havn't seen it in writing? Does anybody have a copy of or link to the extension ????
  21. Had she had the right answers she could have sold me a trans Atlantic and trans Pacific balcony...
  22. I never had a planner before... Always been self serve... I have to PLAY travel agent to some degree in one of my businesses, big game fishing charters. Book air charters, coordinate to fly new guest in on the flights I have taking the previous gusts home. Booking hotels, planning meals, provisioning drinks and snacks on top of all the fishing stuff.... So I enjoy doing my own legwork... The drawback to doing it over the phone with random agents is some just don't get it. What I'm asking or talking about often requires multiple calls before I find a rep well versed or understanding of what I'm looking for. Then after three years working on a separate problem I kind of hoped this would be my one contact who could give me a clear series of steps to bringing that problem to happy resolution...
  23. It came with real Royal tel numbers and extensions along with direct email link... She did answer. Is she just limited to selling stuff? Like excursions or planner stuff?
  24. A few weeks ago I received a letter from someone stating they have been assigned to me as my "Certified Vacation Planner". In that letter they said they would assist with all booking questions and handle details... I didn't ask for that but felt it a nice gesture as C+A and I work through trying to find the 40 days and 14 years of sailings they misplaced. Thats been an ongoing irritation for three years now. Any way.... I have questions about COVID testing on my brutally tight work schedule. Dropped her an email with a moderately extensive list of whens and wheres and cans? "Call customer service"........ Just exactly what does she do if she doesn't answer questions as she said in the first letter?
  25. I'd need the quick ones. My previous tests have all cost me about $150 each. CVS nor Walgreens would even test me but that was like a year ago.. I guess (hope) it has changed. Somewhere between Palm Beach and Miami I hope to find one... My schedule is such that I fly down. Provision the boat and go to West End , Grand Bahama for wahoo fishing. Two groups a week each. Bring first group with me. Fly first group out and new group is on same plane coming in. Bring home second group. Clear customs for boat then take them to immigration (unless they have whats called an LBO card from Customs/ Immigration). I can do that at airport then pick up fiance/son from one flight and her daughter on another. So you can see I'm spoken for right up to leave for the cruise time...
