  1. Can you use your phone to show them the results or does it have to be printed?
  2. I am waiting to hear back about that cruising too! Fingers crossed we both get it.
  3. We booked our COVID test for this Friday last week. Only way we could ensure that we would have an appointment. I also scheduled a backup test later that evening just in case we missed the appointment for whatever reason. The slots fill up quickly so I would book as early as possible.
  4. Does anybody know what itineraries these ships were on? Not sure if it makes a difference but was wondering.
  5. We just hit single digits for our cruise on Harmony next Saturday. Praying we still get to sail.
  6. I've never been to DR, I would love that! I wonder if any of the other ports may deny entry as well.
  7. Just saw that other ships are changing out SJP, I wonder if ours will get changed and to what new port. Hoping we aren't just sailing around.. but also wouldn't be that mad since I just want to get on the ship and relax.
  8. I am sailing on Harmony OTS in 3 weeks. I was looking back and noticed the previous cruise compass on Harmony didn't have open hours for ice skating. Has anybody that was on a ship that had ice skating, did they have open skate hours for you? If so, what ship were you on.
  9. I will be on this sailing too. This will be my boyfriend's first cruise ever!!
  10. I was reading Royal Caribbean Blog's newest blog and had never heard of a secret menu in the MDR. Has anyone ever done this before? If so, what was on the menu? I got excited when I read there was Indian food. My dad is picky and sometimes struggles in the MDR but he loves Indian food so I am very intrigued by this option. I am interested to hear if @Matt and Jenna try the secret menu on their upcoming sailing.
  11. I literally saw someone drop dead right in front of my in the Windjammer. Luckily I always sit in the back and one of the employees by the drink section worked super quickly to alert RC. They did CPR but sadly it did not help. On a different cruise, we had this one gentleman always wear different color pastel suits with a top hat EVERYDAY. We were doing a Med cruise and it was hot, yet I would see him in France with a baby pink suit and a matching top hat.
  12. Quick question for you all, we are leaving in 25 days on Allure going to Cozumel and Costa Maya. Our itinerary just got changed last week and the Mexico excursions dropped today, there are only 12 excursions for Cozumel and 2 for Costa Maya... for those that have recently visited these ports, were there this few excursions? I am wondering if they just haven't added all of the excursions yet or if because of COVID this is all that is available. Thank you!
  13. We have unvaxxed in our party so we are only able to do RC tours.
  14. Hello All, Our September cruise itinerary is likely going to change. As a result, I want to be as prepared as possible once that happens. We will likely either change to Honduras, Costa Maya and Cozumel or St. Thomas and St. Marteen - both with stops to Coco Cay. I am hoping we get changed to the first set rather than the two St.'s since we've been there numerous times. Anyways, if we get the first option I definitely want to visit the ruins however I think we only need one day of ruins. Does anybody recommend the ruins in Cozumel or Costa Maya? Cozumel has Tulum and other ruins (depending on the tour) and Costa Maya has the Chacchoben Mayan Ruins. I will take any and all suggestions. Thank you!
  15. Just an FYI, my friend is a pharmacist at a Walgreens and she said they are all out of COVID tests at their location. They are obviously ordering more and will have more eventually but just something to be aware of. I wouldn't wait until the last minute to get a test or depend on a walk in situation.
  16. I've never had any problems with sleeping on the pull out couch. However, I have never had a proper bed while cruising since I always cruised with my parents. I've always either had the pull out couch or the pull down from the wall bunk. Never had a problem, all generally comfortable especially for a pull out couch. I've slept on some bad ones at hotels where you can feel the springs but never on RC.
  17. For example, I have a $500 RC gift card, do you know if I could use it for my deposit if I book the cruise while on the ship?
  18. I would be using it to pay for a new cruise, we are looking at booking a Europe cruise for May 2022. I wasn't sure if I could book the cruise while on the ship and then just use my gift card while I am with there on the ship booking it.
  19. I have a Royal Caribbean gift card that I would like to use towards my next cruise purchase. I have heard the struggle to use a RC gift card and I am not too keen on using it. However, I am going on a cruise in 40 days (YAY!!) and I was wondering, if I book my next cruise while on the ship, does anyone know if I can use the gift card there?
  20. I agree - more testing will make the cruise safer. I am the type that would rather be safe than sorry. It would be much more inconvenient to have your cruise end early due to COVID rather than being tested before. Especially because both vaccinated and nonvaccinated are getting the Delta variant, I don't see why there is a problem with everyone getting tested prior to boarding.
  21. Perfect, that is exactly what I was wondering about! Thank you so so much. Now I have to figure out how I can get my shopping in, might need to change some excursions lol.
  22. Wow thank you so much for this! I know you said you stayed on board, but by any chance, do you know how it worked for after excursions? I wonder if there were specific lines to guide you back on the ship once the excursion concluded.
  23. I was wondering, has anybody been on a recent cruise and been unvaccinated? If so, how was the experience? We have an upcoming cruise and have paid our final payment. We have every intention of going on the cruise and are going to be unvaccinated. I was wondering, for those that were unvaccinated and on a recent sailing, how was it? Did you feel like you still got the cruise experience even though you were limited? I was wondering how the dining situation was in the MDR and how it was visiting ports. We plan to have excursions in every port except CocoCay. *I do not want any judgement towards being unvaccinated and do not want this to turn into a vax debate*
  24. Just looked at my calendar and my aqua park at Labadee is missing too! I had it booked but I do not see it anymore and there isn't an option to book it either. I am on Allure in September.
  25. We may be doing opposite itineraries. Once we have plans more set in stone, I would be more than happy to share what we did and hotels we liked. Ours is Rome to Athens May/June so it may be a little too close in terms of hotels but leisure things to do, I would gladly share what we do.
