  1. I know that's acceptable for RCL, but I'd rather have something on paper than just electronic.
  2. I contacted my insurance company and they said something interesting. As of tomorrow, you don't have free blanket coverage for COVID19 testing. They might extend it, but it's ending today as far as she knows. You might get charged differently if you are being tested for travel vs. being tested if you have symptoms currently. If they do extend the coverage, you won't get charged if you get tested for symptoms, but would for travel. It's how it's coded by the healthcare provider. I'm not sure the results would be different, so use this information any way you see fit.
  3. I don't want to make a mistake when it comes to getting my rapid test. I contacted CVS, but they charge almost $200 and they only do PCR tests. My local CityMD will put it through insurance and they will provide paperwork for the cruise line. What made me nervous is that they said that I have to check with the cruise line to make sure they put the required information on the report. How the heck am I supposed to know? Is there a sample report with the info needed by RCL?
  4. I'm interested in previewing the sushi on the Oasis. The blog was last updated in 2017: https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/menus/izumi-menu-oasis-of-the-seas I found a more recent one here: https://eatsleepcruise.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/12/Oasis-Izumi-Sushi-Menu.pdf Is it my imagination or is there a lot of cooked rolls on this menu? Yes, shrimp and octopus are cooked, but do the flash fried rolls still contain raw fish? Also, what's with all the rolls with asparagus? I haven't had sushi in a while, but I don't remember asparagus being used so much. Edit: here's the sample menu from RCL: https://www.royalcaribbean.com/content/dam/royal/resources/menus/izumi-menu-sample.pdf I have no idea what to believe.
  5. I splurged on my upcoming cruise and got the Ultimate Dining package. This is only me 2nd cruise on RCL. (The first was in 2019). The cruise planners seem to indicate most specialty places are not open for lunch on port days. It's Playmaker's, Johnny Rockets, and Portside BBQ. On sea days, Chops, Giovanni's, and Izumi sushi seem to be the three additional options. Are the lunch menus different than the dinner menus? I heard that Chops charges extra for some steaks. Is that true? The menu I downloaded from this site doesn't seem to indicate an upcharge except for maybe the lobster. Does that matter for the UDP? Are the coffees in Chops covered by the beverage package? I've heard different things for the a la carte allowances. Is it $20 or $35? Is that per day or per seating? If I wanted to go to Izumi for sushi twice, is that allowance total or separate?
