    CDunninTX reacted to Skid in Royal App Update   
    This is the latest I found on which ships have the Royal App and what features are available on each. Seems like Allure and Harmony are the only ships with the chat feature. Got the chart from here. @Matt's post from May 16 showed that it was on Quantum (not listed here) and that it should identify Key buyers (which it did not on my May 18 Symphony sailing). So this chart may or may not be 100% accurate and I could not find it on the actual RCL site.

    My husband and I got these for the cruise we were just on. The card was easy to get out and we used them as our wallets when on shore.  They worked great!  They are RFID blocking so you have to take them out to open the door but that feature protects your credit cards while on shore.

    I never seem to need a lanyard. I look nerdy enough without looking like I am at a convention. 🙂

    If he only drinks sodas.... then he can do basically whatever he wants! 🙂
    I was on a cruise recently (not a RC) and there was a "kid" on there who turned 18 ON THE SHIP..... he was at the front desk asking for a new cruise card at 12:01am!!!  (it was an Australian based cruise, so he could drink once the card came through). he was damned excited! ha!

    GUNS??? What for????
    In France nobody, whatever their age, can buy a gun without a license. And I'm happy with this. However, I know that having guns in America is a constitutional right and I respect this per se, it is a cultural difference. I do not think my son is interested in guns, although he has practised archery.
    I know this is not the place for this debate anyway. But thanks for the information, travelling is all about cultural enrichment.

    CDunninTX reacted to JLMoran in RCL offer new internet level ?   
    Which ship and sailing are you seeing this for? Just checked my Cruise Planner and only shows regular Surf and Surf & Stream options.
    I would guess this is something new for ships with full O3b internet; maybe they have found they can open up the pipes another level on those ships and get something closer to 10 MB/second instead of the current ~4 MB max with Surf & Stream.

    I fear that will be their response...  "Your airline did not cease operations for 24 consecutive hours" (even though all flight were sold out).  
    I rarely fly in the day of a cruise.  I couldn't make it work this time.  In the future I just won't book a cruise if my schedule doesn't allow me to fly in the day before.

    I've said this before but thank you for blogging this for us.  This is a real eye opener.  I would have assumed that if my flight is cancelled, I could get the rest of the trip refunded.  We do fly in the night before but not 24 hours before as taking another full day off of work/school gets to be hard.  Between the Boeing Max problems and weather delays so many flights have been  canceled recently that I wonder if this a way for the insurance to not pay out.  I think it would be rare to have your flight cancelled and then the airline can book you immediately.  My experience is that the airline (SW) can get you to your destination 2 days later if you are lucky since most of their flights are full.
    It makes me wonder what we would do if we had to deal with canceled flights.  The Max 8 planes were grounded 2 days before our spring break cruise so I was thinking through all the possibilities in case that happened. Rent a SUV and drive one way?  It would be a long miserable 16+ hour drive but we could do it.  Purchase on another airline?  Its spring break so many flights are flying full.  I wonder if I'd have been covered.  Time to break out the fine print and see what my policy says.

    Today, April 7, 2019 as I write this I *should* be sipping a beverage having boarded Liberty of the Seas in Galveston, TX.  Mother Nature had other plans.
    Instead of a cruise live blog, I thought I'd do something different.  An "OMG I missed my cruise and need to file an insurance claim" live blog.  If interested, follow along with me on this journey as I file my first ever insurance claim for missing a cruise, live as it unfolds.
    Today's Itinerary:
    4am Depart home on way to airport 6:15am Board aircraft 6:16am Score awesome 1st row seat on Southwest Airlines with ample legroom  6:20am Begin watching 2nd half of free movie I half watched on last flight a week ago 6:50am PA announcement of one hour air traffic control delay into Houston 7:10am Finish watching 2nd half of free movie I half watched on last flight a week ago 7:35am PA announcement that all morning flights into Houston are cancelled and please deplane 7:45am Discovery that there is no possible way to reach Houston today in time to make the cruise 7:54am Phone call to insurance company 9:22am Back home to ponder life I always advocate flying in the day before a cruise and getting a hotel.  I've cruised out of Galveston a couple times before and that has always been my approach.  In fact that is my default approach for all cruises that I take.  In this case family commitments meant that wasn't an option this time and with a relatively short direct flight arriving into Houston's Hobby airport at 10am on boarding day I thought I'd take the chance.  What could go wrong?
    It's a beautiful sunny day here at home today.  Weather?  What weather?
    I have an annual insurance plan with Allianz.  Like any insurance policy it has coverage for various events based on "covered reasons" with different coverage limits for each type of event.  My initial phone call confirmed this should be a covered event with a coverage limit of $2,000.00 for "Trip Cancellation".  That isn't a whole lot compared to the cost of a cruise but as a frequent solo cruiser it's enough to cover the whole cost or at least take a sting out of my losses for most cruises I tend to take.  
    I've never filed to a travel insurance claim before.  This is a first for me.

    Just got off Allure of the Seas on Sunday.  Didn't notice any issues from the propulsion issue.  We made an unscheduled stop in Grand  Cayman for a medical emergency it did not effect our arrival time in Cozumel at all.

    Concur with Twangster.  Bring your snorkel gear if you can fit them in your luggage, and you can snorkel off the beach (by the floating mat rental).  There are plenty of fish at the man-made reefs.
    Post cruise blues are helped by, you guessed it, posting your experience on the various fora shown here.
