  1. Was our second annual birthday cruise in January and we decided to decorate for others. Unfortunately we were in an end cabin and almost no one saw it. We will be back and bring it and others to change it up daily for the amusement of others.
  2. Still hopeful for 2 still booked for late this year and 3 so far for next year. As a strange year, I have moved almost all my vacation from this year to 2021. If the 2 this year fall through then we will move to late 2021.
  3. Our annual 2020 comp cruise that was to expire in March of 2021 was extended out to 2022. Extra time to decide when to take it. Not sure if they will offer another with the same expiration.
  4. Seen the new normal for boarding on our December short cruise. The earliest boarding time you can get is 2:30pm. Short circuits our getting on early and having lunch.
  5. NCL also put their ships in semi cold storage so it would take them weeks to bring their ships up to have reinspected. November would be really tough for them to sail even if they started reactivation today. Gambling that the combined safety panel gets approval by end of September it would take them at least 6 weeks to bring back up and inspect the ships plus bring back the crew. November for them is a no go. We have had word that some of the crew for Royal has been contacted to report back to their ships. So I am still holding out for our end of November & December cruises.
  6. Congratulations on your new upcoming cruise. We know they will have a great time and next year will welcome them into the wonderful world of cruising converts. Fantastic news on the repricing.
  7. I actually called Royal direct and worked through the associate there and found the information about our cancellation. They then call my TA and authorized our refund of the taxes, port fees and insurance while I was on the line. Went a lot quicker that way. Make sure you have all your information when you call; booking number, dates, amounts, etc..
  8. As a followup on an old thread, we finally received the final refund for our cancelled cruises. The payment from our final non refunded cruise in June went through today and we are finally paid back. This is not a negative post as we had several great conversations with the Royal operators who were able to walk through all of our cancelled cruises this year and find where the delays were. They were always very friendly and it helps to be nice to them upfront and have all the data organized and ready. I am an organization nut and have all the payment and refund data for all our cruises in sprea
  9. Sit 6 seats apart in the center of the theater "reserving" them for friends and family who never show up or do AFTER the show has started and have to chat and catch up during the show. Play through your putt-putt game while your ball is still on the green, no "excuse me" or anything. And then complain about it within earshot. And no I am not a slow player, they seem to be trying to set a speed record.
  10. One of my wife's good friends kept bugging us to go with her on their annual family cruise they take with all her brothers and sisters. We kept telling her we would be a "fifth wheel" on their trip but she kept at it. Finally the wife relented when another of her good friends said she would go and she cruises all the time. Sailed on Celebrity out of Miami to the Eastern Caribbean and both decided this was the vacation style we were looking for. Never have looked back and now go 3-4 times a year to make up for vacations we never took.

  12. The last two refunds have been in the 10 business day range, usually over a weekend even though the refund date is dated sometime that previous week. Not sure if it is our CC company but they have not posted the refunds until late Sunday/early Monday.
  13. The pattern is every other week the prices flip flop. We base our excursions on these every other dates and so far they have been true to form. We do keep checking to make sure there is not a lower price that sneaks in. So far we have some great prices on our different stops. Just wish they would do that on the dining packages, they do not seem to budge on those prices much although their banners extol 20% and 30% off shipboard prices when the prices do not change.
