  1. Per RCCL's latest earnings release: "Starting Aug. 8, testing will be required for unvaccinated guests on all voyages and for vaccinated guests only on voyages that are six nights or longer. " https://finance.yahoo.com/news/royal-caribbean-group-reports-second-120000818.html Hey - it's a start!!
  2. You do a great job with this site, @Matt and I appreciate your explanation. I get it and, unfortunately, the ambulance chaser may ultimate be right regarding outcome of today’s hearing. We’ll see?
  3. I’m disappointed @Matt elected to use this blog’s Twitter account to retweet ANYTHING from this ambulance chaser. Why give him a bigger platform?
  4. Which is exactly why I didn't promote it on a public board...
  5. The loophole I discovered doesn't cost you (or any fellow cruiser) to see the price of your drink package increase as I don't use for unintended purposes. Would you agree that there are many viable and justifiable reasons why one person in a cabin would like to purchase the drink package and another wouldn't (like, perhaps, a medical condition that prevents a spouse from drinking alcohol)? I'm not taking advantage of the loophole to extort 'free' drinks from RCCL; merely finding a way around what I (and the OP) find to be an unfair policy. I'd be willing to bet that if you found yourself in a similar position to OP and me, you'd feel the same way. For what it's worth, the reason I didn't post the 'loophole' publicly was, to your point, because I'm aware some might use it to take advantage and "share" a drink package.
  6. OP -- check your private messages. I discovered what I think is a pretty easy loophole to resolve your issue...
  7. Have you previously stayed in a suite on a Oasis Class ship and had access to Coastal Kitchen? If not, you may wish to reconsider the UDP and plan to have most of your dinners in Coastal Kitchen. We were in a crown loft suite on Symphony back in September and had originally purchased the Ultimate Dining Package. We were convinced by a few on this board to drop it in favor of Coastal Kitchen (it was our first time in a suite on an Oasis Class ship) and, in hindsight, we were glad we did. We found the dining in Coastal Kitchen to be superb and, in fact, had most of our breakfasts and dinners there. We supplemented with a couple evenings in specialty dining, but ultimately are glad we didn't do UDP. Just something for you to consider...
