  1. Super excited! Who’s going on this sailing with us?
  2. Hi everyone! My family and I are going to do a B2B on Freedom starting on the June 17th sailing and then on this June 20th sailing. Me, Hubby, daughter (will be 17 years old), son (will be 9 years old), son (will be 5 years old), and my hip mama will be sailing. We are super excited! Who is sailing on this one with us? Say hi and introduce yourselves!

  4. I am thinking the announcement about cancellation of June cruises will be today or tomorrow. I just checked my cruise planner for 2 cruises that I have booked in June and it says that the sailing has been suspended ???
  5. Overeating. My hubby and I wanted to fit as many dining experiences into our 4 night cruise that we wound up napping or falling asleep after every meal (and we did not accomplish much else!) ???
  6. I would have liked to be a volunteer -I’m healthy with no preexisting conditions; very committed to mask wearing, hand washing, and cleanliness; and I have a job where I am currently working from home (and could work from anywhere). However, I have 3 young children and a spouse with a preexisting condition so it would be best for me to observe from the sidelines and cheer on those who are able to get cruises rolling again. Much success to those who are selected!
  7. The Maryland style crab cake on Mariner was the worst for my husband and me. Full disclosure: my husband is from Maryland so he knows his way around good seafood (and I learned from him ?). I read in a number of blog posts that the crab cakes were good so we were excited to try them. The crab cakes in the MDR should have been called breader cakes because there was hardly any crab in it, so we were disappointed. Luckily, we had the UDP and saw that Chops also had crab cakes on the menu so we decided to give it another shot. The crab cakes in Chops has less breader but it was pretty flavorless. At that point, we gave up on getting anymore crab cakes on the ship but all of the other food we had on Mariner was great! I’d definitely get the UDP again.
  8. I’m just here for the comments and to take notes on where to stay for my next cruise
  9. I am glad that Mr. Fain is remaining so positive. That gives some hope, but again, they have to know by now which ships will NOT be sailing in November so I am disappointed that RC has not revealed at least that much information to its customers yet. I have other sailings to look forward to for 2021 but my November 2020 trip was the biggest one yet that I had planned for my family. I need to know if I should cancel all of the ancillary plans/bookings (hotel, car rental, etc.) I have related to this cruise but I’m not canceling until RC has said that the November thanksgiving Oasis cruise is a no go.
  10. The NCL suspension does seem to indicate that November 2020 is out for RCL too. So heartbroken...really wanted this one to go. Here’s to hoping we will cruise again someday.
  11. Any guesses on when Royal will make the big reveal on whether ships will sail in November/December 2020? It’s less than 30 days from November 1st, and based on prior cancellations by Royal, we should have had Royal’s decision about November (at the very least) by now. I am still hoping that my Thanksgiving Oasis cruise is a go but I have been holding off on confirming other plans (like car rental, hotel for night before, etc.) until we get official word from Royal that things are a go. I would even be ok with Royal saying we are still waiting for the green light from the CDC but here are the ships we plan to deploy (or not deploy) for our start up phase. Thoughts?
  12. We have no idea what we are going to do. We are traveling with our 3 kids and while my husband and me would prefer to fly, the cost to pay for all of us to fly to any of the Florida ports is high and we are not ready to do any flying with the kids just yet. On the other hand, I like the control we have with our driving bubble although we are not looking forward to an 11 hour drive with the kids (I’m sure we will be pulling our hair out with stops and bored kids...), being tired before the cruise starts, and having to get a rental car so that we can comfortably fit all of us for a long distance trip. So we are holding off on making a decision until we have more concrete info about when and how cruising will resume.
  13. Perhaps I am just late to the game but did you guys see this? Just popped up on the Royal app for November 2020 Oasis cruise. Hopefully that means no more having to find creative ways to stay in touch with your sailing group, buying Voom, or using your phone plan data so long as you can chat with them via the Royal app. Yay! ?
  14. @WAAAYTOOO yes- last year’s Black Friday/cyber Monday deals were not worth the time I spent hoping for good deals. But I am fine letting go of these sales if Royal (and the CDC) say that cruises are a go in November!
  15. @WAAAYTOOO and since these cruises are quickly approaching the 60 day countdown, I am not sure if there will be too many more big sales like this, especially if cruising begins again in November. I am really leaning toward YOLO booking all of the items I want in hopes that our holiday cruise sails.. .
