Pinnacle (7/7)



  1. Same here, we booked the first cruise that was supposed to be from NJ. 3 others cancelled and now June 2022 and then August 2022. Fingers crossed.
  2. And the funny thing now is the data shows that mixed doses creates an even more robust immune response. I didn't think that would be the case but it seems it is.
  3. Awesome post, thank you. I wish there were more and more posts of first cruise after cruise restart. If its good like yours was it gives others [me] more confidence and expectations of what to expect.
  4. That was actually going to be my question, but you answered it. That really stinks because that is what I use, have used since the pandemic started. Even my employer is OK with it and I work for the Government.
  5. Thanks, it seems most ships are sailing less than full. I wonder if that is a demand thing, a Royal Caribbean policy for now or forced local restriction? I assume in Florida its not a local restriction.
  6. Curios if anyone knows if the cruises from NJ at least for now are going to be severely capacity limited? If it is, is it limited by rules or limited by not enough bookings? The idea of being on Oasis with just 50% capacity sounds pretty emjoyable.
  7. I honestly don't know how this industry as a whole survives this. The "start up" or "restart" of cruises is proving to be a bigger mess than the shutdown. Its not getting better, its getting worse. I'm not sure its EVER going to be free going wherever, whenever without issues. You can't go here, you can't go there, you need to jump through hoops, even when you jump through those hoops wherever it was is still taken away. I don't know if this ever ends.
  8. And just like I was saying the other day. This, this right here is why cruises are coming to and an end for me. This is my absolute nightmare scenario. I can't fly, serious phobia. I don't know what I would do in this situation. I can't have this kinda thing hanging over my head every time I cruise. I just would like to say the media sucks. They love this bullshit. They don't report every successful cruise but this one is top news.
  9. This is a nightmare scenario and ultimately what ends cruising for me, depending of course if this last forever. This is the exact thing that will end me cruising in the future. I don't fly, I simply do not fly. I cruise and cruise from NJ/NYC because I do not fly. If the threat is go on a cruise fully vaccinated, test positive and be stuck in some foreign country/island and be forced to fly home. We have 2 cruises booked with credits from cruises cancelled from last year. June 2022 and August 2022. June is to Canada, no biggie if the shit hits the fan, quarantine in hotel and drive or take the train home. The next is Coco Cay, Florida no issue, the Bahamas would be trouble in this scenario. If things continue to work like this then those 2 cruises may be my last. I can't have that constantly hanging over my head. Am I being unreasonable?
  10. This situation stinks, I feel really bad for you. Its a really crappy position to be in. Its nice that he is understanding and wants to stay with his grandparents. Our son is 8 and would be in the same exact dilemma if we didn't get cancelled for August 22. We were cancelled a while back and actually ended up relieved because of all the crazy protocols and vaccinated/unvaccinated stuff. I feel bad about the choices you had to make. I hope Royal does something more for you. You didn't book under these protocols and rules.
  11. We started sailing on RC on Explorer so Voyager class, then sailed Anthem when she moved to NJ. LOVED Explorer and it has a special place in our hearts as is it was our Honeymoon cruise ship but when Anthem came here we were just blown away by everything she had to offer. 270 is just out of this world amazing. Best place to have breakfast and watch the sea from the very back of the ship. We just loved breakfast from there. Next one of these years when our cruise doesn't get cancelled we are gonna sail Oasis. 3 times cancelled now. Next up for an Oasis try is June 2022 and August 2022. ?
  12. Well if it is cancelled I would just move it to 2022 because the 9 night Canada/NE cruise is AWESOME. We have done it twice and plan to do it again. Those ports never get old. When you get to go you will love it,
  13. Yes that was our first idea, its only 5 days but all of a sudden my wife is feeling bad in her words "dumping our new baby off" for 5 days. Our in laws LOVE kids and her mother is a nurse.
  14. Thank you guys, I appreciate all the nice comments. We actually booked or really I did refundable on this one, so how does that help us? My TA, MEI said we can just move it to another cruise, how does that work? Just literally take the money paid in and move it to any cruise down the line? The August cruise is paid for already, its a Lift and shift so its all paid up or I think we owe 80 bucks because of taxes/port fee differences. Thanks again guys, truly appreciate everything.
  15. Ok as everyone on here our cruise plans have been on hold for well over a year and are now pushed back to next summer. Well missing cruises so bad and not having a cruise in a few years now we booked a second cruise for next year, June 5th. So we sail June 5th and August 14th. Anyway a few weeks after we booked the June 5th cruise we found out we are pregnant. Baby due February so the June cruise is really not gonna work now because baby won't be 6 months old. The August cruise will just make it. Question is we can move the money from the June cruise to anywhere further out in the future right or at least that is what I read? The other question is how do we add the baby to the August sailing? Is it a pain to do, I mean we have a TA so I guess it'll just be a headache for him? Do they charge for 6 month old baby? I know it's not ideal to sail with a 6 month old but the August cruise is a lift and shift about 10 times from last year. We kinda have to do that one unless I don't understand the rules? Thanks for any help or advice.
