  1. Thank you for this information. I just never tell anyone my weight - now they'll all know. Oh well, not worth skipping the fun.
  2. I am travelling with family members and we have our reservations linked in cruise planner. When we first booked online we all chose MTD. Now I know that unvax kids are not allowed to do MTD from reading blog. The 4 year old is in another cabin from mine - will this affect my MTD? Are we going to need to eat together in the MDR or can we go alone?
  3. When they weigh you before getting on Northstar is it just a scale that shows the weight to everyone standing there? Just want to know to mentally prepare - I'm within weight limit but may be embarrassed for the entire family to see.
  4. Thank you. We're new to cruising and don't know all the ins and outs. We have kids who want to enjoy these activities sailing with us. Hope we can get times. Sailing in April school vaca and know the ship will be pretty full.
  5. For the complementary times for activities like Northstar, Ifly, etc are they open for reservations once boarding the ship or do you book that day?
  6. New to traveling outside of USA. I know travel insurance helps with costs of cancellations of plans. But on the medical side of things doesn't your own medical insurance cover you for healthcare? I've read some stories of people getting hit with huge bills after becoming ill (heart attack etc) on cruise ships and not having travel insurance. Just trying to understand how this works.
  7. My sailing if for Apr 17. I spoke with 2 different representatives on the phone yesterday and asked for my final payment date (just wanted to be sure information was consistent) and the date given to me was March 18. So that changed from January 17. No notification was sent to me, I just was calling with another question and decided to ask. Wish they were better at contacting people with information. Question: do they notify you when your final payment is due or are you just expected to know it and pay up?
  8. Just completed your blog on your Anthem trip. Really enjoyed it. Thanks again for all the effort you put into this. It is so helpful.
  9. Thank you for this response. The wording of no one would be allowed off the ship if unvax unless on a royal excursion threw me. Thought that would be over the top, but who knows these days.
  10. They can supply a small fan? Never heard this before, is it any good?
  11. Thank you. We're traveling Anthem in Apr. with 3 kids. Ages 4, 7, 14 - so this information was very helpful.
  12. I know that if you're traveling with unvaccinated children that you need to use RC excursions in the Bahamas. But does this apply to stops in the USA. We are traveling out of NJ and stopping in Orlando Florida. Can we get off the ship on our own since no excursions for this stop are offered?
  13. Thank you for this information. A family sailing with us still has yet to apply for passports (sailing in April). I'm a little afraid it won't be back in time since she doesn't want to pay for expedited application. Will hope it all comes together in time.
  14. If you have been exposed to a positive case of covid with close contact you may not show a positive result yourself immediately. You could still be incubating the virus and become positive while sailing thus exposing other people on the ship. Once you've been exposed it can take 3-5 days for you to have a + result is my understanding. I wouldn't want to expose others, I would cancel..
  15. Does anyone know if someone sailed with a birth certificate only and they contracted covid on the ship would RC be able to fly them home as they state they would do. Or will they be unable to fly due to lack of passport.
  16. Thank you both for your input. I totally agree with both of you. If the service is poor no tip should be provided, exceptional service rewarded. I just wasn't sure if I should do a percentage based tip or flat amount. This information was helpful.
  17. We rented a cabana at chill island @ coco cay. We are a party of 8 people who will come and go through day. Can you recommend an average tip that people give the server at the end of the day.
  18. I guess I got lucky. Able to save on both cruise fare and planner items.
  19. Trying to reach Royal since 7a EST. That is their posted hours of operation. Want to reprice my cruise fare. But at 7 message said closed at this time, and same message again at 8a. Thought I might have difficulty getting through being a busy day, but didn't figure it would be closed. They don't have hours on the weekend, this stinks.
  20. I vote NAY on the return to self serve, People cannot be trusted to not touch food and put back, Lick spoon (gross), or multiple other offenses. And just touching a serving utensil after many people have already touched makes me squeamish.
  21. Thank you for the information. We will be on Anthem in spring. Traveling with a couple of people who many enjoy doing these while onboard.
  22. Does anyone know how much they charge for Ifly and Northstar?
  23. Thank you again. Looks like a perfect outing for us.
