  1. It IS too early to guess for this storm. But how about some experiences from previous cruisers of what happens when a storm changes the plans?
  2. I saw a lady drop her phone & crack her screen in line in San Juan! Total choas ensued as she tried to find her paper docs after that.
  3. Our January cruise was right in the middle Omicron. I didn't even get the suitcases out until we got our negative results!
  4. We enjoyed The Key on our last cruise because it was basically free due to Covid OBC. To me the best part was the early boarding and Chops lunch. It was very relaxing to go to a nice sit down lunch and not have to worry about eating lunch in the Windjammer. The menu was pretty small. Google "Chops lunch menu Royal Caribbean" & you can find pics of it.
  5. We were standing in line in San Juan and a lady fumbled her phone, dropped it and shattered her screen! Accidents happen.
  6. Yep, they do. Make sure you're watching your clock in the same time zone as your embarking from. My theory is the quicker I'm onboard, the quicker the cruise begins.
  7. @CruzOnBye It IS confusing. I just took this screenshot from the RC website that clearly days 90 days. My next cruise is 11/13 and according to the app, my check in will be available 9/29 which is 45 days.
  8. There will be a separate check in line for The Key. Arrive at 11:30 and look the sign that says The Key and you'll zip right in.
  9. Explorer will finally get it's refurbishment 1/29/2023 - 3/4/2023
  10. Pan American Pier is in the industrial area. I don't recall any nice beaches in the area. We have Hilton points so we've stayed at Embassy Suites near the airport & walking distance to a beach, Condado Plaza Hilton & most recently Caribe Hilton. Taxies available at the airport & we Ubered to the Pier.
  11. @@CruisingNewbthat happened to me for my January cruise, which had been planned for-ev-er. Then things started going haywire! January Omnicrom, positive tests, excursions cancelled, Puerto Rico losing their mind just to name a few. So, enjoy this calm and hope there are no storms.
  12. Try Galveston Saltwater Mom's. I've never used them because I live in Houston, but I've seen them mentioned in Facebook groups.
  13. Our last cruise was in January, right in the middle of Omicron. I stayed out of the gym and we did grocery pickup. We'd both been exposed at New Year's and felt like the threat was great. We both work from home.
  14. When I did my test in January, the proctor would not let me continue because my middle name wasn't on my account. I had to hang up & go to my account and add my middle name on the same line as my first name, thus matching my passport.
  15. Wow! Bonaire was the most strict about masks on our So Caribbean Cruise in January. They had officials on the dock while we were waiting on our excursion. I saw them tell many people to put their masks on.
  16. I saw it on Explorer in January but wouldn't hold my breath to see it anywhere else!
  17. My check-in time opened about 11:50 pm EST
  18. If you're talking about the Bank of America Royal Caribbean rewards card, you log into your B of A credit card account and look for "Cruise Points" That section will tell you how many points you have, their expiration date and give you an option on redeeming them. I have always used my laptop, not the BOA app, to use the rewards. I just redeemed 15,000 points for OBC last week and was pleasantly surprised to see it already applied to my Nov 2022 cruise
  19. @SolariumSnoozerYou're exactly right! I had forgotten that we had The Key letter waiting for us in our room. I dug it out and it has the 25% off dining purchases on it.
  20. They DID remove those two items from The Key. It wouldn't hurt to call & ask if they can give you OBC since you're not getting exactly what you paid for. Room service is free, except for part of the breakfast menu, but the 25% off dining should be addressed.
  21. You should get an email a few days before your cruise reminding you of The Key benefits, one of which is early boarding. It will tell you when you should arrive.
  22. Do you know if you can apply OBC to one booking from each of those games?
  23. Seriously? I looked today and EVERYTHING was sold out. Even OBC
  24. Thank you! Was beginning to think we had missed something. If they want the names to match, they should include the middle name requirement when setting up the account. Have fun on Freedom. That was our ship until they switched us over to Explorer.
