    PRebecca reacted to CrznTxn in How many cruises do you have booked at this time?!   
    7 so far which is way more than usual. Will wait until a little later to book the latter half of 2022. Would not be so many but the previous ones were moved to the 2nd half of this year and all my vacation from the start of the pandemic in 2020 has been piling up and they want me to get rid of it. 😃 Cannot think of a better way to burn off vacation time.

    ...when you unexpectedly  have to get a tree taken down, and that could be paid for with your canceled cruise refund, but you still decide to take the FCC and switch booking to another cruise. 😂

    Greetings!  My wife and I love to travel.  Only one RC cruise under our belts, though her family did a few Disney cruises long before she met me.  We will be cruising Independence of the Seas Jan 31 - Feb 4 2022 and would love to meet some other people.  We love anime, gaming, musicals, drinks, and just meeting new fun-loving people.

    When we went on our first Royal cruise in 2019 we knew nothing about Royal except it looked interesting from the commercials and website. Searching for a forum board to gather information on what there's to do led me to Royal Caribbean Blog and there I found a community of friendly, supportive experienced cruisers willing to share their knowledge. Our first cruise with Royal was so AMAZING!! no way it would have been without this community that @Matt built from a hobby. So that's why I give to @Matt to help him keep all that he does going. Would you have know to read pass cruise compasses or even know they existed? Would you have know about when the best time to board is? Would you have know when to buy from the cruise planner and to keep checking? All these things I was clueless about, thanks to THIS community of helpful experienced cruisers we had an Amazing time!! 
    Plus it's fun to watch Matt loose it when people give to say "thank you" @MattTHANK YOU!! YOU ARE AMAZING!!!

    This has always been a special community. Matt’s positive attitude and approach to keeping things positive and accurate sets the tone here. His blog really is the only source of RCI information that you need. I missed the live broadcast but watched the replay. Well deserved Matt!

    PRebecca got a reaction from ChrisK2793 in Testing onboard is working. 2 Passengers on CelebrityMillennium test positive.   
    These are definitely my biggest concerns for November, it's my husband's luck that this would happen to us. It's not nearly enough of a concern to cancel but it's in the back of the worry part of my brain!

    I agree. If you're booking any summer cruise, you should have a large tolerance for change and uncertainty.
    For some, that's not a problem. Others, maybe not.

    Are the five Diamond plus drinks reloaded onto card at 12:00am allowing one to keep it going late night using the following days vouchers?

    PRebecca reacted to Zacharius in Hotel Recommendations - Ft. Lauderdale   
    I'd like to go against the grain here and recommend the possibility of a rental car and a hotel further afield. Hear me out here, because it's what we do every time - land at the airport, rent a car, and then the entire metro area is your oyster...go where you want, eat where you want, hotels are often cheaper with more options. Then, return the car the next morning to the cruise port (a few companies have locations at the port itself) and take their free shuttle to the dock. 
    Just an idea that I like to share because it works so well for us.

    Just re-booked for Oct 2022 Greek Isle cruise after ours was cancelled for the second year in a row. That's the downside. The upside is that we decided to take the FCC which will allow us to move from a JS to a GS for only about $800 more total. Not a bad deal. We did hate to lose our corner aft JS balcony. It was huge. I guess they're are bigger problems than that.

    PRebecca reacted to FionaMG in Same ship different departure port at the same time   
    It's called interporting. They've been doing it for several years now on this particular itinerary. It can be a bit weird for those boarding at the secondary embarkation port (which in this case is Rome) because some of the onboard activities, such as the welcome aboard party are out of kilter. However it's a wonderful feeling walking down corridors filled with disembarking passengers' luggage and knowing you still have several more days on board.

    My lady and I started in a balcony cabin on Explorer during its inaugural year. (Hint 2000). We moved up to a Jr. Suite because of the coffin-like shower for cruise 4.  Then a Grand Suite for cruise 7. We were hooked. We can't go back. I don't even bother to suggest it to my wife anymore. 
    We'll be celebrating our 50th anniversary in February 2022. So, it works for us.

    ONLY for Canadians.   Not tourists.   Regardless of vaccination status non-Canadians will still have to quarantine with unvaccinated Canadians.
    Still need a Covid test when you land and must self isolate while awaiting test results (they say three days, but usually sooner).
    Trying to temper my excitement (as my 11 year old isn't old enough to be vaccinated yet, so it's all irrelevant)... but holy this is an exciting first step back to travel!!!!!!!
     
    Woot!!!!!!!!
