  1. Agreed on all of this AND crispy bacon.. if I am served/only offered glistening, flimsy bacon, I would rather have none at all. cook those bad boys LOW N' SLOW
  2. I just don't see how wearing a mask is a dealbreaker. You're choosing staying home over having a vacation merely because a piece of fabric may have to be lightly attached to your face? If you have a well fitting mask, it shouldn't fog your glasses (I wear glasses every time, sometimes 2 pair if it's sunny, NERD ALERT) and with a light enough fabric, breathing easily shouldn't be an issue. If it helps us all stay safer and greatly lessens spread via moisture, why not wear one? I do it to keep others around me safe, not because I like the way it looks or feels. Wearing a mask in a public venue on a vacation on a Royal ship > not wearing a mask sitting at home for sure!
  3. Hah!! Thanks so much, I saw that bullet and was thinking of it as "Oh, I can use it up until the last night of the cruise."
  4. Speaking as a Californian, I regularly park hop Disneyland+CA Adventure in one day and Universal Hollywood in one day. It's easily doable to see and do everything in all 3 parks in 2 days time, so I would definitely do the 7-night on Harmony! BUT I have never been to the muuuch larger parks in FL so what do I know!? Maybe if you choose one Disney park only?
  5. So let's say I go ahead and use my new 125% credit for the DBP and UDP now since it covers and they go back on sale later, can I still cancel and get the OBC back and repurchase with it as usual?
  6. Damn, I checked yesterday and all the sale prices were still there so I left my cart. Today I get my 125% OBC in my inbox and the sale prices are gone! I seeee a correlation here...
  7. I would absolutely be on board pre-vaccine and even if they do stipulate masks in common areas (aside from while actively eating, I guess). I have been wearing a mask on intensive, daily 4-mile dog walks since early April, I am ready for the slide stairs!
  8. I was originally traveling to England and Ireland this year and had looked into this, too! Once I saw how long it was to Holyhead on the train I was researching flying instead and the Irish Aer Lingus flights are pretty cheap!
  9. Hi Raye! Do you know if I booked an April 2021 cruise now and knew I wanted to L&S to 2022, does the final payment on the booking still go by the original due date (which would make sense?) or does it shift to the payment due date for the new cruise? I really really need to get the ABCs on my vacation list but the 2022 Freedom prices are $1,200+ than the same cabin category in 2021! ?
  10. I, too cannot figure out my FCC. I opted in to 125% FCC from the second round of cancellations (sailing May 3). My cruise was $1279 including taxes and port fees. We received $302 each and no refunded taxes or port fees. How is $604 anywhere close to the $1279 I had paid? Let alone a value OVER 100%.. I called this evening and finally got through to a Royal rep who confirmed that my automated FCC looked messed up. She said she would be forwarding the discrepancy to the "back end team," apparently an FCC department of sorts, and I should receive additional FCCs in my inbox soon. I really hope it gets corrected because with this paltry credit, I can't afford my replacement cruise just yet! ? ? ?
  11. yes! our cruise was $1279 total and we both received $302 and no refunded taxes or port fees as of now. I was hoping for at LEAST $1000 FCC for what we paid. Guess I should be calling since I deserve the taxes and port fees at least!!
  12. Has anyone received their 125% FCC and was extremely shocked by the low value? How is it that we received only 50% of the original booking price that I paid in full? I know the taxes and port fees come out (where do they go? we just lose that?) but I was expecting to get back at least 100% of what I had paid in FCC between the two of us. $600 won't pay for 1/3 of our replacement cruise. ?
  13. Hah, I do like this line of thinking. YOU try it first, Mikey! Also, I just noticed your avatar is strong bad, it's been so long since I thought of ol' homestar and the gang!
  14. Are you getting the 125% FCC or just 100%? on $1338.47 - $100.97 (taxes/port fees) = $1237.50 x.25 = 309.37 309.37+1237.50=$1546.87 in FCC for person 1 with the 125% FCC deal as far as I know. I can't figure out where you're getting 1255 and 496 from though so I might be way off!!
  15. For the 125% OBC - Will they send an email with a code like FCC or will it just magically appear one day in my cruise planner? Where would I look for this?
  16. Also I should say YES to the original question! I miss vacation so badly. My last was skiing in Mammoth in late February and it's been such a long road since then. I should've been to Puerto Vallarta and spent a few nights at Disneyland by now. Would be leaving Saturday night to Miami to see an Oasis class for my first time ?
  17. Wow! Is that a B3B in Jan 2022?? How amazing! I just added another for 2021 hoping we'll finally be sailing by then but pricing 2022 is in my sights!
  18. 130 days since I got off the Oosterdam from a cruise to the Mexican Riviera (Love that it leaves 5 minutes from my apartment, don't love the average age on board) BONUS: 189 days till Oasis of the Seas to Labadee! I hope we're all cruising by late summer ?
  19. Some of my friends at Pig Pen Theatre Co. produced content specifically for Virgin's Scarlet Lady which would be an awesome option! That way the content they create will fit any guidelines like PG rating, sets, number of actors needed etc. They create awesome folksy musicals where the actors are also the musicians. Please enjoy me as a pirate in their The Old Man and the Old Moon:
  20. Something like Once On This Island would be cool! Family-friendly musical with huge dance numbers and a Caribbean theme.
  21. Has anyone ever stayed on the line after a call to Royal and then actually took the survey they tell you to wait for? I always try and it always just hangs up on me. Such a nice operative just helped me save $350 repricing my 3 cruises and I would've loved to leave a good word for him!
  22. That's what I was thinking! I haven't received my credit for the 125% in OBC but the price is sooo low. They're banking on me buying it anyway and using my future OBC for more things! Pretty good move, I'd say.
  23. My Oasis is at 19 days and still lets you open the cruise planner! It loads all the items but if you try clicking around too deeply it recognizes the cancelation and generates an error page.
  24. My Jan 2021 cruise on Navigator finally loaded beverage packages in the cruise planner today at a whopping $89/day! The booze/voom combo is wild. ? Make that money Royal!
  25. I am hoping for August normalcy for you, Joe! It doesnt hurt that I alsooo have a land vacation to Jamaica in Aug for my birthday. ??? I can't wait to be back on a ship just sitting on the balcony breathing in the sea and feeling completely relaxed!
