    Yes.  I was just responding to this very idea on a different thread.  I think it is very wise to do this.  IMO, prices are just going to continue to rise.  As long as you book a fully refundable deposit, you really can’t go wrong.  You can add the FCC to your booking later.

    The general wisdom is to determine a price that is the most you are willing to pay and then buy it at that price.  After that continue to check frequently for price drops.  if it does drop then cancel and repurchase.  If it doesn't drop or increases then you have secured it at a price that had value for you.

    That is the number of days I have kept our 30th anniversary cruise to Greece this Oct from my lovely wife. I just told her yesterday, which was our half anniversary. And yes, she freaked out a little. Keeping the secret that long was a little agonizing because, as most of you know, sharing the excitement of an upcoming cruise, is one of the best things about cruising. Let's hope as is well come Oct and yes, if things clear up and RC is cruising then, we'll be on Rhapsody!
    Happy future cruising!

    Thanks for your feedback, everyone!  We just decided that we are going to go with Harmony since we like the shows a little more.  Based on your feedback, the ships are very comparable Looking forward to it! 
    We will be checking out Perfect Day at CocoCay for the first time too!  😀

    Roatan - we enjoyed the Gumbalimba Park tour with Zipline adventure (purchased through RCL, but I believe it's also available directly through the park). Included the zipline, monkeys/ macaws/ park tour, and beach time. There is a small cafe with limited food/ drink options. I think there is also a fresh water pool, and you could rent snorkel/scuba equipment.
    Cozumel - we opted for the Chichen Itza Ruins since we weren't sure if we would ever make a trip to the Yucatan other than another cruise stop. The history is fascinating (at least to me) and I'm glad I did it despite the long travel time and limited time spent at the ruins. If doing this tour, DEFINITELY book through RCL.
    Costa Maya - made reservations at Maya Chan Resort (not an RCL excursion) and was worth beyond what we paid. Friendliest staff, great (and constant) drinks and food. Fresh water pool is AMAZING. There was a seagrass issue (this was soon after Dorian) and they gave us a few options - automatic refund, or going to the resort and seeing for ourselves and offering to return us to port with a full refund if we didn't want to stay. We opted to stay and had the most relaxing time. Kayaks, SUPs, floats and (maybe) snorkel gear were included. Massages available for an additional fee.

    In Roatan, we loved the snorkeling there and I thought better than many of the other islands.  We used Roatan Eco Tours the first time and the second time we booked with Daniel Johnson.  Our trip with Daniel Johnson was cancelled due to Covid19, but we were really looking forward to the Snorkel, hangout, beach tour.

    We' eve been to Cozumel 2x. We chose Nachi Cocon Beach club.  It was all inclusive and limited to 130 people. Grounds were clean, food and drinks were delicious and the staff were wonderful.  We had access to their pool and swim up bar or chairs and umbrellas on the beach.  Other clubs have inflatables and are more of a party atmosphere. My family enjoys relaxing (with a little pampering).

    At Roatan we enjoyed Maya Key, which is close to the ship, for guided snorkeling and general relaxation.  For Cozumel, our best excursions were either the Amazing Secret River or Tulum, both requiring the ferry to the mainland.   (Diamond International in downtown Cozumel should be approached warily -- check prices on their website before you go into the store.  They are pleasant to deal with but notorious for overcharging tourists.  We have had both good and not-so-good experiences there.)
    At Costa Maya, you can walk the shops in the nearby village (take a short tram ride or cab), but we enjoyed Chacchoben Mayan Ruins. 
    We use Royal for lengthy excursions so there is no risk of being left behind.
    We sailed last September, and the weather was great.

    I absolutely loved both the Allure and the Oasis. Even though they hold A LOT of people, it's so large most of the time you don't even notice. In my personal opinion I think the Allure is perfect how it is (however it's been a couple years since I cruised on it)! But, I can't wait to see what they do when they do decided to amp her up! I am cruising on the Harmony this upcoming September (fingers crossed it's still a go) and can't wait. I watched a virtual walk-through of the ship on youtube and it looks amazing! This guy shows you everything, even his cabin. I am sure that they have other video walk-throughs of the other Oasis class ships as well. Good luck and have fun with whatever ship you choose!
