  1. Nope, use or lose. If you have that much OBC, you should use the casino trick to cash it out.
  2. Airlines have been very anti pre-flight testing or vaccination proof requirements.
  3. Free spins have been gone for a while, it's just converted to $6 credit (which is better anyway)
  4. They better not continue the test cruise requirement. They're an absolute waste of time to begin with, especially for a crew that's already been sailing with protocols for months
  5. 7 day cruise. But the odds of any of those 7 being contracted on board are slim. If there was a documented case of covid spread on board, it'd be front page news
  6. So my cruise accounted for 7 of the entire fleet's 41?
  7. With the CSO expiring next month, no one knows what the rules will be for test cruises after that.
  8. The agent was probably just looking at the cheapest suite that was still showing as available
  9. I fully expect the CSO to be extended through the spring
  10. In an era where cruise-related stuff changes weekly, not much has changed about who needs a Bahamas health visa.
  11. If you have a legit goal of climbing up the C&A ladder and it's within your budget comfort zone, then yes. Though I'd look at the price difference between a JS and a "real" suite since a JS you're basically just buying the double points and not much else
  12. Actually it's a generic 3x4 card holder targeted towards ID tags at conventions. But marketed as a vaccine card holder they can charge more. Or at least that was my experience when I got 25 generic convention ID card holders (and lanyards) for $7 and a vaccine card holder was $5 for a pair.
  13. I despise getting dressed up. Shorts and a button down shirt for me on formal night. I felt bad for about 5 minutes. To each their own.
  14. It's not needed just for a port stop. Only if your trip originates in the Bahamas.
  15. We're just over a month away from the CSO expiring. I'm surprised the CDC hasn't already extended it. Then again I'm not surprised. They'll surely wait until Oct 30 to extend it.
  16. My own anecdotal observation: I signed up at cruisewatch.com that supposedly checks prices. I've gotten 3 price drops in the last 2-3 months for 2 different cruises. They came proactively from my TA, including one that I didn't see myself on RC.com. I got no notifications from cruisewatch.com
  17. Adventure is on her way to drydock as we speak https://www.cruisemapper.com/?imo=9167227
  18. What is turnover like among the crew? I would guess people are either one contract and done, or have long careers.
  19. I only had the message alert still leftover, but not any new messages.
  20. One of those 230 day, around the world cruises?
  21. That's a youtube feature https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/7288782?hl=en
  22. The suite email just introduces the concierge and gives an overview of the suite perks specific to that sailing. Then if you have any questions or requests you can reply to the email
