  1. Bring small denomination US bills for street food or souvenirs. Or you could charge at larger establishments/larger items.
  2. So if you self test with a non proctored test, do you bring a photo of the test? or the actual test stick?
  3. For us it makes sense. We try to cruise every quarter, and more if there's a pop-up opportunity, but we also travel outside cruising, to various vacation/family spots a few times/year (air, car, hotel etc). Annual policies cover all travel over the covered period. We used to purchase cruise line or travel agent offered plans, but found the an annual policy to provide wider coverage for far less premium than numerous single trips, la carte line or travel agency policies. Since we have to possibly deal with medical issues, it provides peace of mind. You'll have to research the coverage options and weigh cost for your individual situation, but in our case it costs less for a broader annual policy.
  4. And if you like them, order early in the cruise as they're fresh and can run out towards the end.
  5. The number of "new" is very healthy and encouraging. Nice bow wave of new business. Someday will be gold and beyond.
  6. Been to all but one, but I found every step we took, could be a picture. Beautiful and historical.
  7. I uploaded my vax record 2 ways. At first I scanned the cards. Then I discover I could upload the VAX proof OCR from my doctor's office. The OCR was getting approved almost immediately, whereas the cards could take a few hours or couple of days. Either way, still had to do the terminal visual inspection of them. I'm fine with the terminal check.
  8. Found that frustrating. You uploaded your cards, they approved them, then you still had to carry it for inspection before boarding. Guess they may want to add vacs card to travel docs if they hadn't already.
  9. Excellent - my wife goes to the Park to get one as soon as we board.
  10. Prime time Windjammer can easily be overcrowded. We avoid it for primary meals (prefer sit-down venues) - we'll use it "off" primetime for snacks and desserts.
  11. Saw those a while ago. Its worth it to some people, others its not. To each his own. Everyone has their own opinion of value and price point for some value. "Is it worth it?" can only be answered by the person asking the question.
  12. Did you go to the casino cash desk? You ask to charge your room for a play ticket (min is $20). You can't pull credit from the machine.
  13. When we sailed on Azamara Quest last Dec (from Miami), we had 2 guests tap out at the terminal pre-test. I think only 368 or so sailed at that time. (At that time, Azamara was testing everyone just prior to boarding). By the end of the 15 day cruise, there were around 19 guests who where infected and in quarantine cabins. The Capt was good at keeping everyone informed of "the numbers". Sailed Celeb and RCL since then and no idea how many have tapped out prior to leaving.
  14. Actually capacity is limited by the number of spots on the escape craft (both motorized and inflatables). So cabin capacity can actually be on the high side, but with excess escape capacity.
  15. Also depends on the "training" of the security staff.
  16. Has anyone spoked to RCL customer service regarding Coco Cay options still not up on cruise planner? I'd like to make things perfect.
  17. We joke about just leaving the coffee pot on the burner all day --- by the end of the day you've captured the taste of Starbucks.
  18. But its the same menu . Unless you really like it.. IMPO - once was enough for a few years.
  19. We're booked on Wonder the week of 15 Jun 23 and still no CocoCay excursions on the cruise planner.
