  1. Social distancing would not be an issue for us if that's what it takes.
  2. 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!
  3. 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 to apply it to a specific booking. Once we applied it to the booking we wanted, it showed up in the CP a couple of hours later (they tell you up to 72 hours). I initially thought we were supposed to receive a second e-mail from Royal when the OBC was ready, but we did not receive one. It will appear in the CP as credit...
  4. I have looked at Junior Suites and from what I recall, just the one bath... here is what Royal lists for a "J4" cabin:
  5. Quick note... Harmony is the only Oasis class ship that does not have a pool in the solarium...
  6. ... 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
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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 Cape Liberty, but that's only my opinion (and hopefully I'm dead wrong!). Canada and Bermuda sailings have already been suspended through 10/31/20 and are no longer on the schedule.
  11. ... 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/
  12. Our renewal applications were mailed out and received on 3/6/20 just before the crap hit the fan and remained in limbo until now (almost 4 month turnaround). Just got the e-mail and tracking numbers this morning confirming that both passport books and cards have been mailed. 😊
  13. Just remember that you risk paying much higher prices through the Cruise Planner for beverage or dining packages, etc., if you skip the sales that may come along earlier (possibly Black Friday) and wait until the last minute.
  14. Eessshh... she'll still effectively be a little baby almost 10 months old when we sail on 2/12/22.
  15. My gut is saying 2020 is done... likely early 2021 at this point unless the CDC, federal and state/local governments lighten up and we dodge a COVID relapse this fall/winter. Not that Broadway is any indication, but they just cancelled all shows for the rest of 2020. 😞
