  1. It's a texting app/website that allows for private chats. If you've booked into the group with MEI travel, you'll receive instructions on how to join it.
  2. Depends, I had refunds from the pandemic I never received and had to dispute several hundred dollars of charges with my CC company (eventually resolved) but with the most recent sale, I received refunds within 3 days. Items purchased 11/18 & 11/19, cancelled items on 11/19, refund posted to my CC on 11/21. As with all things Royal.. YMMV.
  3. No there isn't. Aqua 80s, CATS and Frozen in Time are all there is. As far as I know, there are no known plans to add an original production show. (a shame, CATS is blech)
  4. Typically, I'll go to Guest Services on Night 4 or 5 (of a 7-night sailing) and see what the prices for transfers are. They may advertise it in the Compass, but I know they'll offer it regardless so that's when I go. I paid $27.95 for my transfer from Bayonne to EWR in October when I was on Oasis. I would expect any transfers to JFK to cost more.
  5. Pricing is different from every ship and sailing.. depends on supply and demand mostly (plus some random Royal IT things I'm sure). That's a pretty decent price for the 3 night package. If it goes down more, you can cancel and rebook.
  6. I saw a Facebook post last night (11/19/22) from @Big Dawg Ron that Navigator now has Starlink.
  7. Yes, but they will not show up on the final invoice provided on disembarkation day. You MIGHT be able to go to Guest Service and get a full invoice printed out (including the 0.00 cost items). I typically keep a running track on my phone and update it each morning.
  8. For closed loop cruises (Starting and ending at the same port), a passport is NOT required, but highly recommended, in case of an emergency. The cruise TJ is referring above to is not that, as cruises departing and returning to different ports DO require a passport book.
  9. I would buy the wifi. It may cost more but being able to communicate instantly is less stressful. You could also do the whiteboard but have it IN the cabin (all the walls are magnetic so you can put it up anywhere in the room).
  10. Wonder just got back to the US from her European season and from multiple reports, there will be things added (like the Quest & Effectors II), that were not on the April cruise compass. I think the compass @SpeedNoodles posted is a good starting point, just keep in mind, things are always subject to change. A couple of other things to keep in mind, Wonder doesn't start 7-night sailings until mid-January (she's doing 6- & 8-night sailings from now to that point) and not all of her Eastern sailings are the same (Some go to PR, some don't, which can impact the show/event schedule, among other things.) So having an exact compass for your sailing may not be possible until your sailing. The best advice I can give, is to check the RC App later in December/Early January to see what they are posting as schedules. You can check the sailings prior to yours to get an idea of what will happen when.
  11. As with many others, somewhere in the middle. On Day 1.. I will book my Specialty Dining and everything else I end up doing on board, revolves around that. As for excursions, I do book those out in advance, as some of the places I like to go, can book up quick and/or have limited capacity. I do NOT try to do everything as I am a believer of Less is More. (Less activities, More relaxation).
  12. 7 new things Royal Caribbean leaked about Icon of the Seas | Royal Caribbean Blog
  13. If it's available, you would go to the cruise planner > entertainment - the options would be listed below. You would "purchase" them just like anything else on the cruise planner (remember to fully checkout to save your reservations).
  14. Co-Sign on Nachi Cocum - it's the "furthest" out day resort out from the cruise piers but that means a 15-20 minute taxi. Limited # of ppl allowed in, great beach, pool, lunch included and extras available (someone will come by and let you know there are extras available for rent, but nothing close to harassing). It's my go-to place when I visit Coz. home Nachi Cocom Beach Club Cozumel | All Inclusive Day Pass (cozumelnachicocom.com)
  15. I don't think anyone has said they can do no wrong, they do plenty wrong, every day - they're not perfect entities. I think the point being made by most everyone else, is that Ship happens. Planned, Unplanned. doesn't matter. It happened. Could Royal learn from their mistakes, sure! Do they, not always. To me, life is too short to worry about it. If the Solarium is closed, it's closed. Find somewhere else to go. If they run out of my favorite drink (which happens ALL the time), I'll order something else. I'm on vacation. Not doing a ship inspection. By the way, they don't expect top dollar from you. YOU made that choice to pay what Royal was offering. If Royal is not up to your standards, move on to something else. Life is too short to worry, about anything. YMMV.
  16. I was able to book on board entertainment for my Wonder cruise on 12/18 (Effectors II and 365 Seasons on Ice) - inTENse was unavailable to book.
