  1. Carnival once and Disney once. We’re pretty much cruise newbies overall. We enjoyed both so much, though, so we’ve been super psyched to try RC. March 2020 and August 2020 were no gos.
  2. Awesome! I am so excited to (fingers crossed) finally get on our first RC cruise
  3. I got a floating cabana for $1049 in June 2020 for a March 2022 cruise. The cabanas are currently $1699 on cruise planner. My water park tickets ended up going way down, and I rebooked ($43 a person down from $79) but the cabana prices have just gone up, up, up. I actually booked way back then because people on this wonderful site told me it was a good deal. Hope that’s helpful!
  4. My third try at my first RC cruise!
  5. I should have known you all would not only calm me down, you’d have all of this crazy inside scoop!
  6. Thanks, all! I always come to you before I panic, lol.
  7. Hi all. A friend just told me that their feb 2022 cruise (Miami to Caribbean on harmony) just got canceled. I came here immediately since I know you all have the scoop, but I didn’t see anything. I am wondering if it has to do with ports that are not allowing visitors any time soon (my friend thought their Jamaica stop might have something to do with it?). I don’t want to spread rumors, but with a March 2022 being pretty much all I’m living for right now, lol, I was wondering if others had heard of cancellations into 2022.
  8. This video is amazing! Thank you so much for this blog. We are booked in a gls on Anthem in March 2022 and I am increasingly worried about it actually happening! This video made me want to go even more!
  9. Oh man now I can’t find the review and I’m haunted by my guesses about what was in the coffeemaker.
  10. Following as well. Star class on Anthem out of Bayonne March 2022 - counting the (hundreds) of days... we will just drive to the port that day (we live about 90 minutes away), but I love all of these tidbits about how to do star class right!
  11. That’s a great point. I’m just wondering if I could sneak in a long weekend getaway and then reap some benefits from that on our big family cruise. Speaking of family, I’d love the long weekend cruise to be just hubby and me. Is it problematic when you and your kids are at different C and A levels? Does it impact anything?
  12. Looks like I have something else to obsessively visit RC’s site to look at!
  13. Am I correct that having a C&A number but never having cruised (thanks, 2020) means I would not be eligible for the double points on my first cruise? Our first cruise is scheduled for March 2022 (just saw that’s now included in double points) in a suite for 7 nights. I’m thinking if we took a three day cruise somewhere for the cheapest price possible first to qualify for gold, that would mean we’d be platinum by the end of that March cruise. Are the perks worth it? This is all crazy dreaming at this point anyway since my husband would likely look at me like I have three heads if I suggested this directly to him. Figured I’d try a more understanding crowd first!
  14. I have this one too! I’m a teacher and it’s often a class I need to teach.
  15. I also had a bunch of confusing moments, like wondering why no one was wearing a mask and deciding to leave the ship to run home and pack some extra toiletries. Dream logic is amazing.
  16. thanks again for your advice when we were booking - GLS 10724 here we come (in like 450 days).
  17. So this is probably weird to post since I read this blog WAY more than I post so I feel like I know all of you and you have no idea who I am, but... I couldn’t resist. I had a dream last night that for some reason, only my scheduled Anthem cruise (March 2022) was allowed to sail right now. I was SO excited to do a live blog here, and I kept telling my family how happy you would all be to see the pics and hear our experiences. We were at the port and I almost missed the cruise because I was taking pictures of every single thing for this live blog. I woke up super disappointed that it wasn’t real. Apparently thinking about our first Royal cruise and our first star class cruise has been the only thing keeping me going these days and my subconscious wanted to get going! Anyway, just sharing for a laugh. Happy Saturday!
  18. Just as an FYI, I checked my cruise planner today after they loaded the Black Friday deals, and there were some solid savings for my March 2022 cruise. I returned my 79 dollar water park tickets and got them for 43, and I got the 100 photo package for 124 (it was 254 yesterday). I figure I can always cancel it if I see a better deal next Black Friday!
  19. Wow, those prices are so good. I am seeing 100 prints/digital for 249.99 for my March 2022 Anthem 7-night. I wonder if that will drop on Black Friday?
  20. That's what she said she was, and I got a follow up email from her as well saying she was my personal representative. I do check my 2022 cruise price every day, so maybe they think I'm booking a lot of cruises!
  21. Hi all! I just received what felt like a really random phone call from someone from RC. She said she wanted to see if she could help me book any future cruises. I told her I was all booked and all set and she just said ok thanks for choosing RC and hung up. Have I made some kind of special list? Am I getting scammed? Just curious so I thought I would ask the RC brain trust.
