    Pretty awesome! I have received $500 back from Amex already.  Charged $1500 with my Amex card with a Royal Caribbean Rep last Friday the 8th. $500 was credited this past Thursday. Very quick turnaround.

    904Duval got a reaction from SebagoSue in MDR Maximum Table Size   
    Unfortunately the stated policy is table max of 8.  That group dining form and table request is bogus.  Best of luck in getting a table of 10. 
    It did not work for my group of 18 for 2 tables of 9.  We actually had a group of 22 and just had 4 tables next to each other in MDR.

    Vaxx Card, DL and passport should work.

    I also like to pick my cabin online by myself. And then get my travel agent involved. I don’t understand why someone wouldn’t use a travel agent. 
    Travel agents cost you nothing extra. 
    Travel agents are paid a commission by the cruise line, which comes out of the cruise line’s bottom line, and not charged to you. Support this important service industry. 
    In return you get expert advice and extra set of eyes.  I used my travel agent to herd my friends reservations together and then book us as a group.

    904Duval got a reaction from foxrunner in Coco Cay 2 ships C.C. Beach Club?   
    Yes price drop should occur. Even with 2 ships.  Coco cay is huge and suppose to handle 2 ships.  I think everyone who posted state fair market value is around $100 for Beach Club day passes.  
     
    You are NOT bidding against yourself if you reserve a cabana as that’s a (presumed)  separate class from the day passes. 

    Royal published max capacity for Beach Club is 450. I think there’s 20 overwater and 10 beach cabana which gives a presumed max   capacity of 240 (at 8 passes each) for that class of passes. 
    So there should be 210 day passes independent of the cabana.

    You should wait for a drop in price. You could wait for the Black Friday sale after Thanksgiving. I would pay about $100 pp or less for the Beach Club (BC) pass.  The lobster and grouper lunch is worth it. And 2 ships gets a little crowded.  But the BC has a max capacity.  
    I would book the regular cabana right now. It includes admission to the beach club for 8 people.  So with your current group you’re getting the cabana for $200 at current price or if you could find 2 more people it’s way worth it. 
    You can always cancel whatever you book in the cruise planner when you get a better price. 100% refundable until a few days from sail date. Takes about one week for the refund to post on your credit card.

    Double dipping seems possible. 
    Reading the fine print of my $500 off offer it does not state only one offer per a cabin. Only one offer per card member across all Amex channels. So it appears two separate card members could each use their offer on the same cabin.  
    If you have two cabins, you could put one card member in one cabin and the other card member in the other cabin.  And then it would definitely work for both cards to the corresponding cabin.

    Looks promising as just received confirmation email.  Fingers crossed.  We will see if it works. I will keep you all informed. I followed all the fine print and used it for final payment after adding the offer to the Amex card.
     
    Amex is very reliable on their offers as it already recognized the charge .   I assume it’s now up to Royal Caribbean to validate it.

    904Duval got a reaction from 4ensic in Because of the COVID situation, I added Medjet Horizon to my BlueGeo insurance   
    The Medjet company only transfers (medical evacuation) hospital to hospital.  So it won’t transfer you if you’re just in quarantine and not in a hospital. 

    One would assume you should be able to get your money back if just joined today or yesterday. Especially if you stated your start date of coverage as the the first day of your cruise. 

    I actually enrolled in Medjet this year as a supplement to my travel insurance. The main reason is it covers med evac to a hospital of your choosing. So it’ll fly you to a hospital near your home instead of a hospital in Miami if you’re hospitalized in the Caribbean.

    Miami and South Florida will take the money from the cruise industry but doesn’t mean they have to like it!  If they can get federal funds, they’ll take that as well. 
     
    This whole Appeals Court fiasco was sad and disappointing last week and now after yesterday is a joke. 
     
    Like him or not, FL Governor DeSantis went to Harvard Law and practiced law with the Navy JAG.  So he actually knows the legal system.
