  1. @Matt’s news blog about Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals, for items with percentages varying by ship, mentions see “the spreadsheet.“ Does anyone have access to the spreadsheet(s), and will post them for us? TIA
  2. You are right. I assumed it was a family member from same household - but I should not have made any assumptions. It’s likely I was totally wrong.
  3. Besides the test results, you need to consider the health assessment you fill out in the RoYal APP. I believe one question is if you’ve been in close contact to someone CoVid-positive ( in the last 14 days, not sure ?)
  4. Suggest you turn it in to Guest Services. They would know who was in the stateroom last. And if the person gets home and contacts Royal about a missing item, it would facilitate reuniting with the owner, if you turn it in,
  5. Matt’s article that Twangster posted is a great resource for families with kids. Is your cruise over Thanksgiving or Christmas school holidays, when more kids are expected onboard?
  6. Waiting on Grandeur to be added to the App. Barbados sailings are coming up.
  7. That sounds like a problem. If it persists, call Royal. Oh - Did you book directly with Royal (on Website)? If you booked with a TA you won’t be able to pay online, nor see details in the Planner.
  8. On CC, 2 different posters reported their February and March cruises had changed the due date in the cruise Planner to 30 days before departure. They had not received emails announcing it. Not so for my February cruise - currently showing November due date in Planner. @Matt , could you check with Royal to see if there has been a formal extension to March across all ships? Or are the posts I saw ( for Navigator and Anthem, February and March sailing dates) possibly one-offs? Thank you!
  9. Hi. My cruise is not until February. Hope you get notified soon!
  10. @Matt, any guess on Allure redeployment? Curious where Allure will be, when she repositions to Galveston next fall.
  11. Looks like crew exercises with tenders. Or could it be Coast Guard inspection? Will miss her when Allure is the big girl in town.
  12. For those with missing data, call your local health department. I was vaccinated at a small local grocery store chain pharmacy. I just called my Health department to see if they could look in the (TX) state database to ensure both Moderna shots and lot numbers were captured. They confirmed it was, and offered to make a duplicate card with my details, dates, lots, and verified by the HealthDepartment name in the clinic spaces. I’m definitely taking them up on this offer, for the household. We can keep the duplicates in safe deposit box just in case needed.
  13. @Galveston Steve , thanks, this naming scheme corresponding to pier number and streets makes more sense for new to Galveston people driving to the Ports. Can you confirm something? I thought I read the Port was signing an agreement with Lyft during last meeting agenda, and Uber would not be allowed in the terminal areas . Is this official?
  14. @Galveston Steve, thanks for the valuable input on the terminal prognosis. I like your option … keeping both sailings ! Agree about the Priceless comment ?
  15. @smokeybandit, I found two that will book the one night you need - Harbor House close to the pier, and Courtyard. Harbor house is also within walking distance of a good seafood restaurant. sometimes hotels will only show for a minimum of 2 nights during peak times like Spring Break. But if so, and you call directly, you can often book for 1 night, Good luck!
  16. @smokeybandit, which week in March? Lots of Texas school districts have March spring breaks (in this area, the 2nd or 3rd week) and Galveston beaches are a Spring Break destination. But - there should be hotels available for you. Good luck!
  17. LOL, to Twangster’s magic 8 ball answer. I should have asked this instead: If Galveston terminal is on track, the TA departs for Galveston Oct 30, 2022. IF they suspect the terminal will not be ready for her by the Nov 13 arrival, they’d have to delay the Oct30 TA (and probably add on a couple more European itineraries). Assuming Royal has past history where this has occurred (TA moved due to new terminal delay), is anyone aware the latest (closest in) to scheduled TA date, that Royal has adjusted TA start and new terminal inaugural sailing? Just curious. thanks!!
  18. @twangsterThanks! I had been hoping they would open these up for booking! Taking a chance on the November 13 sailing with an end Boardwalk Balcony overlooking the magnificent AquaTheater. I'd made a December 4 reservation from the previous deployment announcement - with a refundable deposit. Trying to decide if I wait until Final to cancel it - so will have an informed decision whether the terminal will likely be finished 3 weeks earlier. Would Royal announce by middle of August 2022 if Terminal 10 (aka Terminal 3) would be delayed?
  19. So does this affect scheduled Florida test cruises? Are they still necessary?
  20. @Pattycruise When I had the problem with a middle name not matching passport, I called American Airlines. (This was about 3 weeks ago). AA advised it had to match, and to go back to Air2Sea to create a new reservation (International tickets can’t be modified). I called Air2Sea and the first rep said, don’t worry it won’t be a problem, repeatedly. I hung up, called back and got a 2nd rep who insisted it was a problem, and apologized for the bad info the first rep provided. He said the passenger would be unable to board the plane with incorrect name. He canceled and rebooked quickly, insuring the names were correct. If I were you, I’d call Air2Sea again.
  21. @steverk I have a booking out of Barbados, so was interested in your question. I thought I’d check entry requirements listed by other cruise lines. I see that Seaborn is cruising from Barbados. Here’s what Seaborn’s website says about Barbados entry requirements for cruisers - there is an option to fly in and go to pier without quarantine: I have to believe when time gets closer to Grandeur sailings, this will also be an option I’m really looking forward to my Barbados Grandeur cruise next spring. https://www.seabourn.com/en_US/health-safety/barbados-travel-requirements.html What requirements must be completed prior to boarding? Negative COVID-19 Test: If guests are going directly to the pier from the airport no additional testing will be required for check-in and embarkation. If guests are staying at a hotel before embarkation they are required to complete a PCR test upon arrival. Guests should take their PCR test at the airport as it will be complimentary. Guests will then be transferred to their hotel to quarantine until results come back. Test results can take up to 24 hours. p.s. I was surprised to read in the protocols Seaborn was denying cruisers requiring oxygen or dialysis.
  22. If it’s an International flight, Air2Sea has to cancel and recreate a new air reservation - no way to correct the name in the existing air Record locator. We just experienced this recently, booking a flight to Barbados and noticed one middle name incorrect (didn’t match passport) . Good luck! Try to call early in morning or later in evening,
