  1. Good Luck with the next procedure, glad to hear all positive news. 10k miles on a 2018 is fantastic, I like to see 12k-15k a year when buying used, that's way under. I am sure minimal driving in 2020 helped, but hey, your gain - good luck with the new wheels too!
  2. Hopefully it's not more of nothing. Maybe Oasis from Bayonne in September has a chance. I'm still working on backup plans.
  3. Welcome to the forums. So you're aware this site isn't affiliated with Royal Caribbean. Did you use a travel agent? If you waited and Royal Caribbean cancelled your options should have been something like: 1) Lift & Shift 2) 125% credit or 3) refund. I could be mistaken as this was a long time ago. Did you make a choice? If so, which choice. You might need to escalate this within customer service if you don't have a travel agent. I'd also file a dispute with your credit card.
  4. You all would hate us. 3 Grand Suites on Anthem, all Bermuda sailings so total of 15 days at sea ... 2 dinners at CK. Not that we don't love the restaurant, but sailing with friends who aren't in a suite sometimes you "lose" the benefits to enjoy time with them. Mix that in with specialty dining and quick breakfast and lunches ... We just didn't take advantage. If Oasis in September is a go I'd like to have breakfast there a few times, in addition to a few dinners. Lunch? Depends what the Windjammer would be like.
  5. Matt's blog post should help explain the suites on Anthem: https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/category/category/royal-suite-class
  6. Go with the Grand Suite if budget allows, it's really the first / lowest real suite. Jr. Suites are larger balcony stateroom with a few perks but probably not the ones you care much about (well maybe dinner at Coastal Kitchen if it's available both venue and seating).
  7. I'm sure having that view was worth the few minutes of 'awkwardness'. We've done the Viking Crown at sunset, it's awesome. I actually love the views at night too, looking over the clam pool deck and sea at night.
  8. That would upset me honestly, the prices for these events aren't cheap and to feel uncomfortable...I would have complained. They could have suggested a different time for your event, or shifted karaoke by 30 minutes to avoid that. I understand Royal did all they could to keep everyone out of your event but, idk... I am just picturing the conference room awkwardness where the next group is standing around the hallway waiting for current occupants to leave.
  9. That puts a new meaning to "rinse & repeat" when talking about your job.
  10. As others have stated, the groups department can help here. If you don't have a group, maybe it's not too late to convert the bookings to a group? Although, I think they all will need to be part of your agent/agency first. I have personally worked with the groups / events department back in 2016 when I did something similar (just took a cruise to destination & married on island) they aren't easy to work with. This is where a travel agent is worth their weight in gold, from knowledge of what can and cannot happen to dealing with the "no contact this person - no that person - send an em
  11. I wouldn't mind a little extra time to decide but being someone with a September cruise out of Bayonne I'm currently all-in anyway. If my quick and dirty math is correct, currently the same room (Grand Suite) for September 2022 is 28% higher so I need a Royal cancellation to shift and preserve the price. With that said, I'd much rather shift my $500 deposit than over $4000. Then again, if it sails and there is a restriction I'm not thrilled with, like mask while sitting at pool, I'll be sitting on a $4000+ voucher. Luckily I expect by July (my final payment) we will know a lot more t
  12. I was just coming to post this LOL. For me, there was an ad the size of a Rockefeller Christmas tree on the front page taking me right to Adventure and they even slid in the Vision of the Seas under the same ad. Then change to departure port of Nassau under South America & Caribbean like @John Blahnikmention above. Slightly different link, same results: https://www.royalcaribbean.com/cruises/?departureCode_NAS=true&shipCode_AD=true
  13. Traction Park? I WISH! LOL. I LOVED that place. I actually lived in NY and the drive to Action Park would have been too far, plus didn't get my license until 1996 (after turning 18 - I was a year+ learners permit guy - dad didn't think I was mature enough, probably right ). I still remember the little seated car on the single rail taking you over 94 to go back and forth from the "motorway" section. They had a few different go-carts and the ones that required a drivers license, they let me drive them with my learners permit - fun fact, that's how I memorized my drivers license ID from going on
