    bossdog421 got a reaction from PRebecca in Booked Star Class! Oasis Ultimate Panoramic Suite! Questions...   
    Yeah I'm excited. First time booking Star Class! For those that didn't follow along, i was just on Harmony in January for my 10 year wedding anniversary  and did a live blog here it was a blast!  That was our only other RCCL cruise and had a great time in our Sky Class Loft. Gotta say i was totally jealous watching those genies zip around for other groups. I knew i was going to book one just not this soon!  Seeing some of these prices I just couldn't pass up the deal... seriously not even taking into account that i wont need flights this time its about half the cost of my last cruise and it's STAR CLASS and we can now celebrate wifes 4.... i mean 30th birthday! ( i get to celebrate too my 40th is next week but canceled due to covid)
     
    This room looks like it's a newer addition as part of the amplification.  It looks amazing. Has anyone here had the opportunity to stay in one of these rooms? Only 2 things are concerning me. First is no balcony. Obviously  this is made up for with the insane views, just a couple floors up and we got the suite deck anyways. Second is how far it is from the suite lounge / the rest of the star class suites. From what i can tell about the deck plans EVERY other star class suite is aft. I have no issues walking across the ship to get to coastal kitchen (i plan on being more #teamCK this time but now i'll have specialty dining included so still going to be limited, no MDR at all this time!)  a couple nights but I'm slightly worried about genie access with it being so disconnected for the rest of the star suites.  Any input on either of those items would be appreciated.
     
    I am ready for a vacation! Working in healthcare int he middle of all this craziness is exhausting!  A September sailing seems like a pretty safe bet.

    I knew it was gonna happen after my last cruise lol...
     
    I may have jinxed myself already, not sure they can transfer the reservation and move the sailing.  I got a denial on the transfer saying it was over 60 days even though the invoice is dated 2/24/20. Maybe because i used that $200  anytime booking and it was Feb 2nd when i sailed?  Really hope they can move some things around and make it work! The itinerary is identical to the cruise I already had booked next year so keeping them both is not ideal here.

    The cruise i was talking about is officially changed to 9 night Bermuda and Northeast when attempting to book.
     
    My wife is good with it except the rep i spoke to said it would be 100 a person to move. So not going to transfer.
     
    I might still book but I'll sit on it for now and hope it drops more.

    Odd that the itinerary has changed and isnt updated on the website, looking at the booking now and it still says Canada. His is on Adventure leaving from Cape Liberty in June?

    Hi Guys! Been a while... Working in healthcare right now is nuts!
     
    Last night my wife looked at me and said, "Am i crazy for wanting to book a cruise right when this is over?" While my mind hasn't had a chance to process much besides work I instantly felt like i am ready for a vacation already. Now all i can think about, aside of work, is cruising again.. lol
     
    On my last cruise i took advantage of the Next Cruise program. I am currently booked for a cruise in Oct of 2021.  I seem to remember that one of the perks is that i could change the sailing within a certain amount of time.. though I am not 100% on that. I currently do not have access to my paperwork to check.  Can anyone confirm that?
     
    While the resume dates of sailing are still uncertain I am seeing some deals that are tough to overlook. I think May is going to be a wash, i just dont see things going back to normal, even if it is I might still have a lot of work to do to normalize the business. June.. maybe.. I see a 9 night Canada cruise in a guaranteed suite for a price that is great. Even if things aren't normal it seems the refund policy is on point. I'd like to move my next reservation from next year to this June. Hell even if it's not possible i might book it anyways.
     
    What do you guys think?
     
    Stay safe everyone! Remember Washy Washy!

    Ships docks on day x and you are free to go off and on through to when the ship leaves the next day.   
    Typically the gangway is staffed 24 hours so come and go at all hours.

    Ugh...that's unfortunate! I'm lucky in that I live in Maryland, so Grandeur (and its replacement next year, Enchantment) do this Canada itinerary regularly. Whether I do June or July this year, I'll get to experience Adventure, which was the bigger push for me behind booking out of Cape Liberty this time and actually flying to the port. And with the OBC deal Royal is offering me to keep my June sailing is just too good to pass up, so that's an added motivation for June.

    bossdog421 reacted to Chadster in Next Cruise Booked- Changing Dates?   
    Yep.
    Just for reference, here's the itinerary pulled from an email that Royal sent my travel agent that she then forwarded to me. They haven't notified me directly; the change came about yesterday.

    I vaguely remember that 60 days is the magic number.  But I could very well be wrong as I've never done that through NC.
    And the 9 night is no longer going to Canada.  @Chadster is on that sailing and it's going to Bermuda now.
  24. Thanks
    bossdog421 reacted to Ogilthorpe in Next Cruise Booked- Changing Dates?   
    Having recently booked and revised a NextCruise booking, I can confirm that 60 days is the free change period from the original date of making the reservation.
