  1. I went to Magens both pre-pandemic in August 2019 and post- in August 2021 and both times we had no trouble finding a taxi (aka converted truck/bus) whenever we decided to leave. On both occasions there were about 3 taxis lined up and waiting for return trips. I can also attest to there being no trash (??) anywhere on the beach.. maybe that previous comment was determined from the parking lot/ticket window alone? Keep in mind the beach entry fee is $5 pp once you arrive.

    If you get a chance to grab an itinerary with a Cartagena stop, go for it! You’ll have a great time.

    A Panama crossing was on my list but I will make sure to look for this as a stop. Everything I know about Cartagena I learned from the 1984 romantic adventure classic, Romancing the Stone, so your skyline photo makes it look so impressive!

    I sure hope they are going to offer more than these and with some type of discount!!! 

    I am very surprised it's still only these 4! Although if we go by the time it took them to change it for Cozumel the first time, we should get an updated cruise planner on Thursday. 🤞🤞🤞

    only see ships going to Aruba

    You can do this now in a tricky way which is how I found all the cruises going to the ABC islands.. Some cruises only go to A and C but I wanted all three so I searched for Bonaire as a port destination and got all the results that included it! 

    You can do this by going to the hamburger drop down menu in the upper left > Cruise Destinations > Cruise ports. This brings you to a full list of the ports RC sails to. Find the port that interests you, click on it and scroll down to the list of itineraries available that include the port. Use the blue on white navigation to scroll to the end of this list and click "View all itineraries in this category" Boom!

    There may or may not be an announced "sale," but prices will get both better and worse between now and then. You're close enough to sail date that you should be checking the prices every day (at a minimum).

    The one thing I have left to purchase only fluctuates in price during the advertised "sales" - I do check every day. I have been buying Christmas presents and putting off my last purchase but I am hoping it goes down one more time prior to then.

    So I just checked the port scheduler and looks like Freedom will also be at CocoCay on the 4th (naturally Oasis is not listed yet).  

    Hmm, every other day there is only one ship listed, I wonder if they will swap around the Freedom; it's supposed to go to Cozumel right before. Maybe they'll get swapped for Nassau too??

    Do we stay on the ship and enjoy what it has to offer or get off an explore the island? Talk about first world problems.

    I am on Freedom the day after we disembark and am now going on two IDENTICAL cruises, at first I was disappointed to miss out on Coz again, but I guess it's cool we can explore Oasis and not worry about what we may be missing on our first stops in Nassau and Coco Cay.

    Somewhere someone posted a photo of the right test to purchase for cruising. I must stink at searching because I can't find it. I have this one, and am hoping we got the right ones. Anyone able to kindly verify or point me in the right direction? I know it's been discussed to death, sorry!


    Yes, this is the correct, proctored test. Not sure why you got so many conflicting answers, it just needs to have the "Ag Card" designation.

    Plus Jarell has never made this car trip and wants to see Alligator Alley. If you’re from Florida seeing an alligator is just a Tuesday but hey 🤷🏽‍♂️ get your thrills babe LOL 

    This made me actually lol! I have only seen a baby alligator once in New Orleans so I am on team See-an-alligator-while-in-Florida, too. Like @PPPJJ-GCVAB, I am getting off Oasis the day you guys start your adventure. Can't wait to see your posts! We S2S and get off Freedom on the 12th and I will absolutely need some fresh Oasis content to drown my sorrows! hahaha

    I've seen the type with a lanyard that lets it hang around your neck - Maybe? 

    I am team mask-lanyard allll day (although I havent religiously worn masks since CA dropped the mandate in June) and love how easy it is to remove to eat/drink while also not having to worry about shoving it in a pocket and all the excessive fabric touching that goes with that. I have been on two vacations since covid and we just brought a ton of varying cloth masks each to deal with the constant need to swap it out for a fresh one. 

    I could see the lanyard being handy when you're walking the ship and moving between locales that do and do not require masks.

    Royal has indicated they will include testing for B2B and S2S (side to side) i.e. - changing ships.

    I've thought about trying to do a Binax over Voom but there is a lot of risk involved if it doesn't work or if heavy rain blocks the internet when I need it.  Murphy's law - Voom won't work when you need it most for a critical activity.  

    My cruises, an S2S to me, don't qualify for a Royal test as the second one leaves a day after the first returns, so I have a night in Miami booked. I am thinking of bringing the Binax/Voom as my plan A and having an Antigen test either booked or taken at MIA on that day in between as plan B. 

    ... wait, Binax could still be my plan B once I have LTE in Miami! Wow. And the 6 pack is a great find. Thanks! 

  12. On my Oasis cruise Nov 3rd, the UDP has never been available for purchase and I got access to the CP over a year ago when I L&S'ed from the same cruise in 2020. I keep checking regularly but it has never appeared. My cruise directly following on the Freedom Nov 8 has had the UDP available since booking.
