  1. Yep... same with us... just a tease, LOL! ... and you have to love the pricing rollercoaster... went from $53 earlier this week back up to $71... I'll grab it when it goes back down.
  2. Just an observation... As @MiguelB pointed out, you can get the balance, but ONLY if you have not applied any of the FCC from that particular FCC certificate to another booking. Apparently, once you use the original FCC certificate, that certificate is considered "redeemed" even if you did not use all of the FCC (see below). They will only issue the new FCC certificate (for any remaining balance) after you sail on the booking you applied the bulk of the original FCC to... we applied most of our FCC to our 4/24/21 sailing and here is what I just pulled up. It makes sense since the FCC
  3. Watching the day of the week tiles on the elevator floors advance... Thursday, Friday... very sad.
  4. Yes, you are correct. You are supposed to receive an e-mail with a new FCC certificate number for the FCC balance once the cruise you applied the bulk of your FCC to is completed. For us, we have to wait until we complete our 4/24/21 Symphony sailing before we'll get the balance of our FCC. I read somewhere on the forum that the deadline/expiration date to apply the balance of the FCC is extended based on when the new FCC certificate is issued.
  5. Social distancing would not be an issue for us if that's what it takes.
  6. OK, not completely related (at least the same 2 ships)! I stumbled across this cool pic and wanted to share without creating a whole new thread for a pic (click on it for full screen)... Allure and Oasis under construction at the same time back in OCT 2009 at the STX shipyard in Turku, Finland. What a sight that must have been! I'll bet you'll never see two simultaneous major builds for the same cruise line at the same shipyard again!
  7. Here's my timeline FWIW and may differ for your Odyssey cancellation... Our 5/31/20 Oasis sailing was cancelled by Royal on 4/16/20. We received the e-mail from Royal with our FCC certificate numbers on 5/22/20. We called our TA on 6/10/20 to have Royal apply the FCC to our upcoming (hopefully ) 4/24/21 Symphony sailing. As the TA was handling that FCC transaction with Royal, they (Royal) mentioned that we also have our 125% OBC from the Cruise Planner purchases available which we also applied to that same cruise. The OBC will not show in the Cruise Planner until you instruct Royal
  8. I have looked at Junior Suites and from what I recall, just the one bath... here is what Royal lists for a "J4" cabin:
  9. Quick note... Harmony is the only Oasis class ship that does not have a pool in the solarium...
  10. ... Matt just posted this today... for those that miss this great content, see the "Royal Caribbean Blog" tab at the top of the page... buffets are here to stay in some form: https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2020/07/01/there-will-be-buffet-royal-caribbean-ships-when-cruises-resume
  11. Just for those that miss the great content on the "Royal Caribbean Blog" tab up top! Matt posted this today... 95% of all crew have been repatriated... 97% by 7/15/20... https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2020/07/01/royal-caribbean-have-repatriated-95-of-its-crew-members
  12. Yeah, they're quick to cash that check. I'm sure things will be ramping up now that they are returning to some level of normalcy. I'm just glad we did not need our passports.
  13. I agree... Although certainly not directly related, it's also not a good sign that Broadway has extended their suspension of all shows until at least 1/3/21... https://www.playbill.com/article/check-the-statuses-of-broadway-shows-during-the-coronavirus-shutdown
  14. Obviously nothing has been confirmed. Your guess is as good as mine, but what I do know is that Oasis is scheduled for her last 2020 sailing out of Cape Liberty on 10/25/20... she is scheduled to sail out of Ft. Lauderdale on 11/04/20 (4-night short cruise). Anthem (8 & 12-night) and Adventure (11-night) are not scheduled to return to Cape Liberty until NOV (post recent cancellations). The earliest they can resume sailing is 9/16/20, but who knows if the CDC, NY & NJ, etc., will green light the re-opening of the ports. My gut is leaning toward a cancellation of the rest of 2020 in
  15. ... Oasis coming in this morning to Miami... strange that there is minimal to no activity at Port Everglades and Port Canaveral of late... https://www.portmiamiwebcam.com/
