  1. Thank you for the info. I would definitely try this on Oasis if the bid prices are reasonable. We are in a central park balcony.
  2. Do all cruises offer "Royal up"? because our Oasis cruise in August is not listed yet as eligible.
  3. It says "pending" and I see there is the ability to modify. I guess it's just a waiting game. It's a short cruise on an older ship Adventure OTS so maybe that works in my favor.
  4. I'll have to check that part, I didn't notice that part. Thanks for the info, this is kinda exciting. Can't get hopes up too high though.
  5. 2 of mine say pending! One had another status. I would love that 2 bedroom grand suite. I mean with 2 kids that would incredible. Thanks for the info.
  6. Same,same exact things I just saw on my 2 cruises. I found that odd as well.
  7. What is the typical response time for winners? Is it usually quick or a drawn out process? Our sailing is July 26th so not too far off.
  8. Oh we paid very little for this cruise, most was FCC. Also the rate was very low on begin with. Thanks for the advice though because this is brand new to me. I made 2 bids, and I guess we'll see what happens. Any other advice is appreciated as I want to learn as much as I can about this process. Kinda cheesy I think you don't get the extra points.
  9. Wow! You won the bid on that amazing room, good for you! I'm hoping for the best. I also bid on the Owners suite now for just over the minimum. I see that there is a way to modify the bid. I really like this program. I will try for something on every cruise it's offered. I think I'm just gonna leave it as is and see.
  10. Thanks for the replies. I didn't know what I was doing or I would have bid more. I thought it was per person so 4 people but it's only your first 2 guests. I would have bid more if I knew that. Do they offer this on every cruise? We are on Oasis in August too.
  11. For an email out of the blue about Royal up and never have tried this before. I went through the options and there were some good ones. There was an upgrade to a 2 bedroom grand suite so I was like ok, why not try this for the first time. Bid the minimum so I don't we will get it but in the future I know the process. Does anyone win with the lowest bid? It's Adventure OTS on a short cruise to Halifax, 4 days.
  12. Sounds like Anthem OTS is the new love boat. It is an amazing ship that is for sure.
  13. I hope I didn't offend because I absolutely love Canada and Canadians. Canada just seems the most cautious of countries right now, at least in the northern hemisphere. I mean China is a bit crazy too which actually surprises me. Who knew they cared about anything especially their people.
  14. https://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-news/fda-authorize-covid-shots-children-5-june-rcna25386 So again this is coming up pretty fast. I'm not worried about Royal Caribbean making this mandatory but Canada which is the most skittish and scared of the countries making it mandatory with no wiggle room. Now our son won't be 6 months till June 19th. It's just something I'm gonna have to keep my eye on. 3 doses for a 6 month to 5 year is absolutely ridiculous and unnecessary. Use a little common sense here FDA, just make it 5 years old is the earliest anyone should get vaccinated. Just a little common sense please.
  15. Very interesting, thanks for the info. I guess we'll try and upload our cards. I assume you still have to bring your physical copy too on the cruise, to the terminal, and of course port stops?
  16. Excellent thread because I was wondering if you can upload your vaccination status. Our check in doesn't open till June. So I suppose you have to upload and bring the physical copy?
  17. Thanks guys, you all made sense and talked me off my depression over this. We haven't been on a cruise since 2019 as al lot of you have and the thought of having to cancel over something like this would be really disappointing. We sail Adventure OTS July to Halifax and they Oasis OTS 2 weeks later to Coco Cay.
  18. https://www.reuters.com/business/healthcare-pharmaceuticals/moderna-plans-file-eua-covid-19-shot-very-young-kids-by-april-end-2022-04-20/ I'm one of the biggest vaccine advocates. I have 3 shots, my mom has 3 shots, my wife and 8 year old son get their 2nds shots tomorrow. I got mine pretty early on when you had to fight for an appointment. That being said I will not get our 3 month old, or 6 month old at the time of our sailing in July vaccinated. I just feel that is too young and I have not seen data that 6 months to 5 year olds are getting severe Covid, hospitalized with Covid or dying from Covid. I'm worried that this will be a requirement by the cruise lines in general and Canada in particular where we are going in July. If this becomes a requirement what are our options? Will we be able to cancel? I mean this wasn't the deal when we booked so I would think we would have that option. I'm more worried about Canada. Love ya Canada but they seem the most cautious to fault than other. This would be a deal breaker for me.
  19. Thank you, that pretty much clears it up unless the Canadian government changes this between now and July 26th. Thank you again.
  20. I hope its not "booster" fully vaccinated because my wife does not want to get boosted. Thanks for all the info and advice and links.
  21. We are finally going on our first cruise out of this god awful pandemic in July to Canada [two weeks later Oasis Coco Cay]. Anyway what is Canada's definition of "fully vaccinated". I have 3 shots so that includes the "booster". My wife and son only 2, no booster. Thanks for any help.
  22. It's why I take the stairs just about 99.9% of the time. The elevators on cruises are annoying number 1, and extra calories burned number 2. The most rude passengers I encounter on a cruise is typically around the elevators.
  23. Interesting info, thanks. I hope the booking number stayed the same because we are supposed to get double points for this cruise. Thanks again for the clarification.
  24. I don't know if we technically cancelled and rebooked or just repriced because our travel agent, John from MEI took care of the whole thing. We booked or rebooked or repriced with KSF. We went from a balcony guarantee to a spacious ocean view balcony cabin# 9528 and saved 250 bucks. Great deal and it pays to have a great travel agent.
  25. We saved money and got a better cabin I think?. John from MEI redid our short cruise in July and we saved 200+ bucks. We also went from a regular balcony guarantee to a spacious ocean view. We also have our cabin number so we don't have to wait for the GTY cabin assignment. Is an spacious ocean view an upgrade over a balcony guarantee? This is on Adventure OTS.
