  1. I'm hoping with the continued delay to restarting they extend the date for double points past Sept 30, 2022. I have a GS booked in October 2022 and I would like to cash in!
  2. Hopefully in Texas Gregg Abbott, who loves to shadow DeSantis when he thinks he's getting the upper hand in popularity, follows 'suit' (see what I did there?). Even if it's long and drawn out in the courts - at least it feels like they're doing SOMETHING.
  3. Sigh. I have 5 scheduled. One on Carnival in October (my friend I'm going with is diehard Carnival so I thought what the heck, I'll try it). Then Liberty in Nov 2021, Adventure March 2022, Grandeur Sept 2022, and again Grandeur Oct 2022. I'm not holding my breath for the October, I am pessimistic about November, hopeful for March, and if we're not sailing by next September, I give up.
  4. My November Liberty cruise has drink packages at $43/day with this sale - lowest I have seen in a loooonnnnggg time. So of course I booked it.
  5. What convinced me to go Passport only for the kiddies (I always keep a current passport) was when I read that you can't fly internally in Mexico to get to the US Embassy in Mexico City without a passport. So if I needed one to get home I would need to drive there from Cozumel - which would be like 20 hours on unfamiliar Mexican roads, and that ain't happening. There is a now a US Consulate in Playa Del Carmen which would help me out, but it was the fear of not being able to fly home if I needed one (from anywhere). A lost passport is much easier to replace at the consulate than starting from s
  6. May be wishful thinking - but we're booked for: Liberty Nov 7-14, 2021 Adventure March 14-18, 2022 Grandeur Sept 21-25, 2022 Grandeur October 19-24, 2022
  7. Fog is only really a problem in February-ish. Some years it's bad, like 2020, this year we had like 1 foggy day. If you can go into Hobby - do it. IAH is WAAAAAYYY north, and to the port will be like 1.25-1.5 hours with no traffic. With traffic, whoa-nelly - no thanks!) 35 minutes from Hobby airport is actually not that bad. Lots of hotels between the airport and the port, nicer in the Clear Lake area, so can definitely stay cheaper, but will need an Uber or taxi to get you there, which could negate the savings. We live near Johnson Space Center, and it is literally 35 minutes from door
  8. If either means we can finally get going again, I would do either. I do question the need to wear one outdoors or on the pool deck - but we went to Disney World with the masks being required unless actively eating or drinking, and it was annoying, but doable. I won't be thrilled with wearing one on the pool deck, but I will remedy that by ensuring I always have a drink in my hand. I am more worried about what the requirements for excursions will be. I don't want to have to be on a RC excursion to leave the ship. If that is a condition to sail again, they better start contracting with my favori
  9. What kind of items are being reported as non-refundable? just curious
  10. In the meantime - I am booking a suite on Grandeur in fall 2020 to get those 4X points! Can't wait to book the inaugural of whatever Oasis class is coming - was so bummed to have to cancel our Allure sailing for this fall However, I will happily take the replacement 7 night on Liberty if we would JUST START SAILING AGAIN ALREADY!!!
  11. They will greatly interfere with my drink package - but if I have to wear one to get to go on vacation, I will wear one. There are bigger, worthy hills to die on these days. Now get me on a damn boat! I agree with Twangster that the bigger issue is not being able to leave this ship without a booked excursion. All I can say is, they better start contracting with all the places I want to go!
  12. And any RC ship in and out of Texas also flies the Texas flag. LOL. And hangs it prominently in the centrum or promenade. As a non-native resident of Texas, I find this pretty amusing. The Texans love their flag! RC know how to pander to their audience.
  13. My 6 year old son, who was 5 at the time, wears a little captain's hat around the ship - and him meeting the actual Captain. Man, it was like meeting the REAL Santa Claus.
  14. Was scheduled for Allure Nov 2021 out of Galveston, but that was canceled and we were swapped to Liberty Nov 2021.
  15. We've always done the self carry off, and left when we felt like it, except this last time, we decided to put the luggage out and go on our time schedule. I must say - this was a MUCH easier option than I realized. I figured it would be royal pain, but honestly, no line, no waiting to get off, and bags were right there. Only glitch was my mother in law packed ALL her pants and we had a panicked search for acceptable pants the morning of departure (she worry my super stretchy pajama pants off the ship ). Pretty sure, unless we're in a BIG hurry (and we never will be, because we sail from Gal
