  1. Purchased from: Optum (3-pack) Order date: 01/12/22 (11:55 PM) Approval date: (UNK, Immediate?) Shipped date: (UNK, No e-mail confirmation) Received date: 01/17/22 (02:55 PM) Manufacture date: 12/08/21 Expiration date: 11/20/22 Effectively 4 day turnaround since I ordered at 11:55 PM.
  2. We're on the same sailing as well! Fingers-crossed!
  3. This is just pure speculation, but I believe Atlantis may have temporarily "banned"/disallowed cruise ship excursions/access to the resort due to Covid. I'm assuming they want to limit access to the resort for their own paying guests. My wife and I had booked the dolphin encounter and water park excursion for our OCT 2021 Oasis sailing, but it was cancelled and all other Atlantis excursions were pulled immediately from the Cruise Planner at that time. No explanation provided. They also do not appear in the CP for our upcoming FEB 2022 Odyssey sailing. Once again, just speculation on my part! I do not know if you can just show up on your own at this time (in the current climate)... maybe contact the resort directly to get a definitive answer before planning any visit.
  4. One more question... If the couple we're sailing with purchased the DBP, the Key, etc., do they automatically reimburse those CP charges for the no-show passenger (husband may not be able to make it)? Thanks again!!!
  5. Hi @Etoh... I received your message... these are the acceptable travel documents that appear in the drop-down menu during the online check-in...
  6. Just ordered the 3-pack from Optum for our FEB sailing. Not taking chances with potential supply and shipment delays. I'll update the main tracking thread when I receive them. Just an FYI... As of this evening, this is the message on the Optum website concerning current shipment window...
  7. Just curious! Does the remaining person in the room get the same C&A points or do they get credit for the no-show as well (double) since they are paying the full cabin rate now? Our friend may have to go solo next month! Thanks!
  8. Once you complete the first guest's check-in, you'll see this confirmation and then you can click on "Check in more guests". As long as their reservation(s) is linked to your reservation, they will appear... You will go to a screen showing all linked guests. Your screen may look a little different since we are all checked in... Even after you check them in, you can always click on the icon on the upper-right to go back in and modify/change your info or boarding window until the check in period closes... And, as usual, you can always come back and update your check-in info until the check-in window closes...
  9. You are very welcome! If you are checking in using the website, here are the pages... You'll see when you go through the phone app later you can upload the pics of your vaccination card/record, but it's not needed for initial check in to get your boarding time window. Once again, the security photo can be skipped and uploaded later... I believe the credit card info pulls automatically from their reservation, but if they are OK with it, I would obtain it just in case! We had checked in at midnight and originally chose the 10:30 AM - 11:00 AM window, but our friends did not check in until later in the morning and we had to change it to 11:00 AM - 11:30 AM. We switched so we could board together... I hope this helped! Have a great time!
  10. The only potential issue is that you need to answer some questions before you get to the boarding time page (last page). You'll need some personal info including form of ID (eg. Passport number and expiration date). You cannot progress until the ID/Passport info is entered from what I can see. You can skip the photo upload, etc., but not certain key data. We could not check in our friends (linked as well) because we did not have their info. Also, you do not need to upload proof of vaccination (photos of CDC card, etc.) until later... you can complete that through the app on your phone.
  11. Midnight Eastern time for us.
  12. Quick question! I can't remember! Is the RoyalUp program limited to reservations booked directly with Royal or can you still qualify/bid even if your reservation is through or transferred to a TA? Thanks!
  13. Yes, as @SpeedNoodlespointed out... it appeared for us sometime last month (about 45-60 days out)...
  14. We had a similar experience with our OCT Oasis sailing. For Nassau, we had booked the Atlantis Dolphin Encounter and Water Park excursion and it was cancelled a couple of months before sailing. All of the Atlantis excursions were pulled from the Cruise Planner... my guess was that they decided to limit access to their facilities to resort guests only at that time. We were able to switch excursions since we were so far out from sail date. It is strange that a boat tour was cancelled...
  15. Yes, we had our PCR tests at CVS before our early OCT cruise. CVS (at least locally) sends the samples to Quest Diagnostics and results were back in about 36 hours. No issues with Royal.
  16. No one would book a cruise... LOL! Similar to the sales hit Corona beer allegedly took at first!
  17. It looks like Wonder will have the full/combined Izumi Hibachi & Sushi restaurant like on the other Oasis class ships rather than the split restaurants like on Odyssey.
  18. ... like Wonder of the Seas and Disney Wonder... I guess it's hard not to repeat. Everything sounds better with "of the Seas" attached!
  19. I may be a little boring, but I like "Melody", "Illumination" and "Aria" the most... Fantasia sounds like Disney. If they did not already have "Serenade", I would have liked "Serenity of the Seas", but I guess that would sound too much alike.
  20. The good thing is that remaining OBC (for missing ports that are not replaced/swapped out, etc.) will be refunded to your linked CC at the end of the cruise. It's not a use it or lose it situation last I've heard. See @Neesa's post and their group's experience with missed ports, etc... The letter received while onboard... I've even heard that people have seen that remaining OBC credit hit their CC right after disembarkation. I personally cannot confirm, but that's what some impacted folks are claiming. It appears, at least at this time, Royal has actually been very efficient with the handling of the resulting OBC and refunds. Good luck and enjoy your cruise! We loved Allure when we sailed on her back in 2019!
