  1. Estimate nearly another 50% that won't sail until all the silly rules are gone.... and you might have an explanation for a nearly empty ship.
  2. When I had to cancel, I was told it would depend on the source of the FCC. If Royal cancelled originally, it would be part of the refund, or, if it was a cruise with confidence FCC, it would be reissued as an FCC. As always, these things can change ....
  3. I use a work around (Android Chrome): Open the browser menu and select "desktop site". The icons will appear for use, and you can revert when done
  4. Even after a year and a half, in the extremely rare times that I am required (and only if I am willing to play along with the joke), to pull out the stained, torn, dirty, paper mask from March 2020 and put it on ....I feel like a buffoon for having a mask on ...
  5. I learned a few things tonight interacting with Royal that clarified a few recent items of ongoing discussion. 1. If you are not able or willing to comply with the announced protocols and restrictions, you can cancel and you will be refunded. 2. If you used a Future Cruise Credit, you may be refunded depending on the source of the FCC. If you cancelled under Cruise with confidence (even if your Cruise was later canceled after final payment as you anticipated) your FCC will be reissued with the original expiration date. If it was issued because Royal canceled, it will be included in the refund. 3. Lift and Shift is no longer an option in these cases. As always, every interaction can have different advice from Royal, but this is what I was told
  6. We intended to be onboard ... the new protocols say otherwise. FYI ... look for a 12:00 boarding time to open soon, also for those looking to upgrade, book or RoyalUp an Owners Suite (without the pole) will also be available in the system soon.
  7. Please remove Oasis 10/17/2021 ... we are no longer permitted on board ??
  8. This one was in an old school baby carriage, I didn't see the dog in the wagon. I only encountered the carriage dog once ... perhaps that dog was who jumped overboard at Port Canaveral?! ?
  9. In this case, it was a 30ish woman pushing a small (pekingese?) Dog in a carriage.
  10. Was this by any chance on the Anthem in February 2019? If so, I missed the dog (s) in the stroller in Coastal Kitchen, but did encounter them in a full baby carriage at an elevator.
  11. In the App, the menus finally posted late last week for our upcoming Oasis sailing, and the Seafood Towers they were still there. Those selections are gone today in an updated menu.
  12. I called Club Royale last week and part of the conversation was about the accumulated comps in the queue which could likely expire before we could use them. While they could not tell me any particulars, they did say that an additional extension to the March 31, 2022 date is being considered.
  13. I feel the same way ... but I don't plan to cancel and lose money. After consultation with RCCL, they intend to offer FULL refunds (including FCC) for those that don't agree with their restrictions. In my case, I will lend them the final payment amount for a few weeks in order to recover all of my funds. I would rather cruise, but I suspect they don't want my business currently ...
  14. I have learned over time that there is always more to the story. Newspaper articles today claim the passenger in question had and recovered from COVID19. Statistically, that would make her much less likely to test positive than a fully vaccinated person. Since that claim could easily be verified, is there a greater propensity for a false positive with onboard testing? While her approach isn't impressing most observers, one must wonder if she has a bit of a point in her argument, and is there a possibility of this happening more often?
  15. I'm excited to see they have extended the double points. Now, if they would just extend the Casino benefits that have been stacking up since last March ... ?
  16. My sample set is small, and therefore not likely to be considered statistically significant, but so far I see 0%.
  17. Unless I missed something, it appears that you just checked all the same boxes. ?
  18. Hey! I resemble that remark! ???
  19. Perhaps I wasn't clear (Sometimes I'm not), I wasn't calling for an unvaccinated cruise ... just one in which it wasn't a factor. Pre-March 13, 2020 rules, no segregation, no testing, no paranoia ... just a cruise. A sailing that nobody was worried about being near "Those people", just a cruise.
  20. I would add a 3rd ship to the poll ... completely free from vaccine consideration ... I would be onboard without reservation. To quote Billy Joel: "I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints, the sinners are much more fun" ??
