  1. This also counts for cruises.
  2. One of those memes that make me think of the RCB crowd, especially #TeamDX (myself included!)
  3. I've gone on a cruise-planning spree! These will not only get me to Diamond, but I'll also get to take part in at least one Group Cruise next year! And...my first B2B! 😮 Jan. 26-Feb. 6, 2021 Anthem (Cape Liberty-Southern Caribbean) Sept. 25-30, 2021 Freedom (Cape Liberty-Bermuda) Sept. 30-Oct. 9, 2021 Freedom (Cape Liberty-New England/Canada) Nov. 22-29, 2021 Harmony (Group Cruise) (Orlando-Perfect Day)
  4. I hope they'll give you a credit or something! And ugh...okay, so my goal for 2021 is now New England/Canada; I think Alaska's waiting until 2022. Don't think I'll be rocketing from Pre-Gold to Diamond within the next 18 months after all.
  5. Please remove my 10/11/20 sailing aboard Brilliance (the Group Cruise). Currently nothing to replace it with until I do some digging. 😕
  6. Only if we're sailing toward Florida. If we sail in any direction to be further away from you... 😁 I've noticed I get the Maryland resident discounts on cruises out of Baltimore (not really a surprise there) and out of Cape Liberty. My Thanksgiving cruise out of Orlando doesn't have a MD resident discount.
  7. Another UDP question as I ponder whether to tie up more money with RCCL while I'm awaiting some refunds for previous cruise planner cancellations and taxes/fees/gratuities, and I'm not really sure I wanna tie up more money right now... Does the UDP ever "sell out"? Though I know none of us know what when-we-resume-sailing is going to look like, should I just bite the bullet and go ahead and secure the UDP now? Price, I'm not too worried about -- I've got OBC and a refund coming -- it's more about quantity available.
  8. When I first went with MEI, I just filled out the form and was assigned Sharla; she's definitely been fantastic! I was trying to move my Thanksgiving cruise from Anthem to Harmony this year due to a change in my availability and location for that week, and she spent 80 minutes on hold just for me...and got it done without any fuss! I honestly don't think you can go wrong with any of MEI's folks, based on all the stories I've read. And as for them being full-service, I think they're a go-to for RCCL/Celebrity/Disney simply because of their extensive experience with those cruise lines, leading to a bit more specialization. While I haven't tried to book a cruise with one of the other "Big 3" cruise lines through MEI, I certainly see no reason why they wouldn't be able to help you!
  9. Yes, yes, and yes. In most places where masks are required in restaurants for dining in, the rules state "except when eating or drinking." I would assume the same would go for bars. Social distancing would be tricky, but Royal's smart -- they can figure it out. I'm sorry, but if I'm walking to and from somewhere on the ship and I encounter a large group, I'd prefer to have a mask. Maybe it's because I'm just used to wearing one now without much of a second thought. No, this doesn't make me weak. No, this doesn't make me "not a real man" (whatever the frick a "real man" is... 🙄) and no, it doesn't mean I'm living in fear. What it does mean? I'm sailing and following any and all rules RCCL puts in place -- you know, like I always do when I'm sailing, or just generally being a member of society.
  10. My friends and family now have more understanding about how I'm really working when I work/study from home and that it's not all about watching Netflix all day (I can do that WHILE working, thank you very much! 😝).
