  1. Tested on the ship and confirmed to be negative but you have to fully pack and sit in the terminal for fours hours? I’ve got a few months until my next B2B so I’ll sit back and watch but if this doesn't change I will have to figure out which to cancel. Especially since I can’t pick check in times for my 2nd leg.

  3. Okay. Hmmm. I recall seeing an August link but not one that specifically stated "All August Florida".
  4. The vaccine recommendations remain as does the testing and insurance requirements for unvaccinated. I don't see any onboard protocols. No masks, no dedicated venues.
  5. Is it just me or did Royal quietly add a new link for August? https://www.royalcaribbean.com/the-healthy-sail-center/getting-ready-to-cruise?dPort=florida-august GETTING READY TO CRUISE FROM FLORIDA For All August 2021 Departures The protocols communicated here apply only to guests departing in August from Florida homeports. We will continue to update these protocols as public health situations evolve. Guidance for all other departure ports is still in development with federal, state and local authorities. Booked guests will be provided full details specific to their port of departure prior to sailing.
  6. Freedom has been redeployed to the Caribbean so they have cancelled her Canada/NE sailings. Other ships remain hopeful for Canada to re-open. Anything is possible especially with Alaska cruises bypassing Canada. Despite that, given how far behind Canada is with vaccinations I am doubtful Canada will open to cruise ships in 2021. Family there just got their second shots since they are over 50. The vaccine roll out has been painfully slow in Canada. Today (July 5) they are cracking the border open just a sliver for vaccinated travelers but they still requiring testing for vaccinated and everyone who is vaccinated must have a plan ready to quarantine for 14 days if they say you must upon arrival at the border. The border will continue to open slowly and hopefully by this fall fully vaccinated travelers will have an easier arrival into Canada but that probably won't include cruise ships arriving. Anything is possible in these crazy times so they keep these cruises alive for now, other than Freedom that is.
  7. I had heard a rumor but have found a document to support the claims. CFAR or Cancel For Any Reason has increased from 75% to 90% in the form of FCC. Coverage increases in many areas as well. https://creative.rccl.com/Sales/Royal/RCTPP/15045834_Royal_Caribbean_Travel_Protection_Program_Trade_Flyer.pdf If you previously purchased Royal travel insurance it appears you will be automatically bumped up to this new plan: Q.

  8. Mine did. Menu in this trip report: https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/boards/index.php?/topic/9160-radiance-of-the-seas-alaska-southbound-83118/&do=findComment&comment=83842
  9. Not really sure. I think it is an interactive process. They ask question and based on your answers they craft a tour. Give them a call and let us know how it goes.
  10. FWIW my Odyssey cruise in November is 5 nights and lobster appears on the preliminary menus in the app. YMMV.
  11. Generally on the so called formal night. I can't recall if it's 5 nights or 6 nights to qualify for lobster night. It also isn't offered in all regions.

  13. I think Royal is working with, or recommending Manulife for Canadians.
