  1. Good question, I would like to hear a response on this (in case I forget cash). We usually take cash so we can tip the guys taking the luggage, bartenders, and of course the room steward.
  2. We just finished this one on Liberty (Dec 26th) and had a blast. Maya Chan was great and we will be back. The disembarkation (facial recognition) in Galveston was super fast. Enjoy!
  3. Yeah, not sure either. I assume they would use the Passport # and look you up in the system and compare facial recognition? Not sure but getting off the boat today and not having to pull it out allowed us to pass through customs in 15 seconds. Hopefully all ports will add this feature soon.
  4. Just finished a 7 day on Liberty OTS this morning. I don't feel the new protocols could have been any better last month. Maybe you didn't need to wear a mask in a few areas, but it really wasn't bad at all. Once your in the dining room, mask off. Once you have a drink at the bar, mask off. We had a great time!
  5. Agree, we just returned today off of Liberty OTS and all of us, even the kids 10, 12 are vaccinated, and we were told not to leave the RC sponsored excursion to head back to the ship or we could have problems. This was in Cozumel and the tour guides said we should stick with them all the way back to port. They are taking things pretty serious.
  6. We always leave our passports on the ship, but we instead bring a copy of our passports and/or our passport cards. We've never needed them or been asked to show them but have always been told to take a copy (at the very least) off the ship.
  7. What did the fish say when he swam into the wall? DAMN!!!!
  8. I tried to do it this morning from the Mobile Browser and it was a continuous loop for me. When I would click "Plan My Cruise" it wanted me to sign in again (a continuous loop). I logged onto my PC and was able to cancel and rebook in seconds.
  9. So, I wanted to fill everyone in on something that happened to me recently so that you can at least check and make sure the same thing doesn't happen to you. My family of 5 are set to cruise on Dec 19th out of Galveston on Liberty. We made final payment 3 or 4 days before the final date back in early September (and as luck would have it, final payment was pushed out the very next day). No worries though, I was happy to have everything finalized and ready to go. A couple of a weeks ago we found out that one of our kids would not be able to make the trip and thus I called into RC to cancel him. Everything went smooth until about three days later when I noticed on the RC website that the "Pay Remaining Balance" was blue, and no longer greyed out. I clicked the link and sure enough, I now had a $408 balance due after being told I would get an FCC for $1,000+. It's taken about 10 days now for RC to fix it, but had I not called I am worried that my cruise would have been canceled for not paying in full before the final payment date that had been extended. I'm not sure what the policies or procedures are there, but I wanted to bring it light in case you want to periodically check your reservations and make sure you're not also showing a balance. I wasn't going to post about it until I saw the youtube video last week from La Lido Loca (link below). He had the same issue ($52 balance) but he didn't find out until going through embarkation. I wouldn't think things like this would happen with today's technology, but with Covid and some of the new policies, procedures, and technological system changes, problems are likely to occur. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJbwTclM_LM Good luck and happy sailing!
  10. We are on Liberty in 32 days and are a family of 4. Yesterday I received the "Royal Up" e-mail and was curious why the bid is for two people and not all 4 of us. I'm curious if anyone has seen this before? Do you pay/bid for 2 people but everyone is moved if it's won? Thanks
  11. After seeing the path the ship took today (after my post), I assumed that might have been the case. Hope everything turns out ok for all involved.
  12. I see that Freedom is pulling back into Nassau right now. It's 4:00 pm there and Freedom was there yesterday correct, and today was a sea day before docking at Coco Cay tomorrow. Anyone have any idea clues? I wonder if there is a Ship issue, it appears to really be swaying and the ocean doesn't look that bad.
  13. What about the Deposit. I paid $250 for each person and they told me the FCC for his deposit would be $50 (unless I misunderstood her). Thanks fo the tip.
  14. So, my family of five is scheduled on Liberty, Dec 19th and my 18 year old may not be able to get off of work (brand new job) to go with us. 1) What are my options for: his cruise fare? his excursion fare? his soda package? Any chance any of this can be refunded or added as an onboard credit? ***UPDATED -Answers below***
  15. i have the exact same question. I have a Dec 19th cruise and a 10 year old waiting to get vaccinated.
  16. I assumed it would come and today it did, an updated itenerary. Cozumel, Roatan, and Costa Maya! I'm kind of excited for this one because I have already been to Cayman and Jamaica. I love Cayman but Jamaica is not really one of my favorites, so I'm excited for this one.
  17. Thanks, I assumed it would go to Cozumel, Costa Maya, and Roatan. I hope that is the case.
  18. @Zurc @Momof4crazytocruise Headed out on her Dec 19th. We just had our Jamaican excursion canceled this morning. I'm curious if you guys have an itinerary change and what it is? I know Grand Cayman will change since they are not allowing ships until 2022, but what about Jamaica? We were supposed to be on the Marth Brea tour but it canceled for some reason.
  19. @janderson I've been to Ft. Lauderdale (from Houston) twice now and usually the flights from here to Ft. L and Miami are about the same. I also use Google Flights to track prices. Usually booking flights 3+ months out will give you the best pricing options, but usually we fly there anywhere from $125-$250 RT, on United. As for a hotel, we stayed at (Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Fort Lauderdale Downtown/Las Olas), its a new hotel and a walk (2 blocks) from Las Olas Blvd where the restaurants are, and it's a quick Uber to the port. There are also some nice hotels on the beachfront that are fairly inexpensive we've stayed at as well. ** I think your issue with pricing is simply that you are going spring break week to one of the biggest spring break locations in the US. Your Hotel/Flight prices are going to be higher than any other time of the year.
  20. Sounds like a good plan. I too am on Liberty Dec 19th and pretty sure it will sail. It should complete its Dry Dock work about the first week of September and head back to the States before final payment. I would assume we would hear something about a test sailing by then. I think they are going to try and make the Country Music cruise (late Sept) happen, so December in my eyes is very likely.
  21. I had Giovannis Table on Allure OTS, by far was the best Filet I've ever had. Amazing food.
  22. I'm not sure about you, but I'm ready to get back on a ship. The family and I will be on board this Holiday Cruise, but who knows what the itinerary will be. Anyone else looking forward to this cruise?
  23. UPDATE - I am on the phone with RC right now discussing a couple of items regarding an upcoming cruise and decided to ask about the FCC's for my canceled July 11th, 2021 cruise. He told me they had been issued and gave me all of the information. I told him I had not received anything via email, (yes I checked spam) and they were checking with support to find out if/when they were e-mailed out. So, if you want them, you may want to give them a call. **** latest update - they are emailing them to me now. @VoidoftheSeas
