Gold (2/7)



  1. Check out the cruise compasses and/or app each day, and for things that you really want to do, show up as soon as they open registration/sign ups, which might be about a half hour before the activity starts. It usually will list something like “bumper cars: 9-12, sign ups 8:30). Have fun!
  2. I think it’s kind of hard for cruisers to say that the ports are being unfair. The ports have a responsibility to their citizens, and while a lot of the islands are doing pretty good on vaccination, they still have less medical capacity overall if there is a huge spike in cases. Preliminary data about omicron is looking positive (in the sense that it appears to be less severe) but it’s still a little early to make the call that omicron is no big deal. My take: I think cruise lines are doing a good job overall, but I also don’t blame the ports for being cautious.
  3. Oh no! That’s terrible to be at the port but unable to get off the ship. Worse than if they had just stayed at sea, I think!
  4. I would still probably drop off my bag at the terminal, and take a small bag of large purse with the things you’ll need for the afternoon. Otherwise, you’ll have to carry you stuff around with you until your room opens. If your check-in time is around 2 pm or later, it might make more sense to carry on, since your room should be ready by then.

  6. That’s the Bahamas rule for air travel. Not cruise ships. Different modes of travel = different logistics = different rules.
  7. I read elsewhere that this email went out inadvertently to Anthem passengers sailing out of Bayonne. It’s based on the UK protocols (notice that it mentions the UK 2 day requirement), and doesn’t actually apply to US sailings.
  8. As Matt had said many times, nobody knows for sure what Royal is going to do until they announce a policy change. Until then, this is all speculation, and mostly speculation that is colored by folks personal and political opinions about vaccine mandates.
  9. Right. You would not pay anything extra, but you would get double points. The double points are not always applied automatically. You may have to call the loyalty desk.
  10. I haven’t been on Indy, but Mariner is a great ship! I don’t feel like you’d be compromising at all!
  11. I’m so sorry to hear that! I’m at 20 days til our cruise, so I’m going to start taking extra precautions now. Unfortunately, my partner has grand jury duty all the way up to our cruise, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed the doesn’t pick anything up there.
  12. This is an interesting read, thank you for sharing it. Especially the recounting of situations where people boarded ships despite knowing they were symptomatic and later causing a number of breakthrough infections. Unfortunately, some people are just not going to do the right thing, so I understand why both the cruise lines and the CDC want certain protocols in place.
  13. Can you check the room against the deck plans? You should be able to see whether or not it has a balcony there.
  14. It does work. When check in (re) opened for the harmony group cruise, I stayed up til midnight and got the first time available, noon. I might have gotten earlier if I’d been able to check in when it first launched, but I wasn’t booked yet.
  15. Same! We got ours back a lot sooner then we expected!
