Diamond (5/7)



  1. We had a different experience with Cape Liberty on our Dec 2021 cruise. We had a 11:30am arrival time which I was very happy about. When we arrive at exactly 11:30am, we saw a very large line. We asked a rep to see if there was a different line for 11:30am and he said that they tried to organize it, but gave up. Several family ahead of us was boasting that they had a 12:30pm check in and no one was stopping them. This was our first cruise from Cape Liberty and was a bit disappointed with the fact that they just gave up. Those were his exact words.
  2. Absolutely, one of our main reasons for not going to the buffet. My family tends not to be too obtrusive so if there's a lot of people waiting for something, we would likely be the last to get it especially when there is no defined line. I do appreciate crew members who notices and ensures we get served before someone who just came, regardless of how loudly they ask for something. But that happens only once in a while. I'm just not sure why people don't use courtesy. I don't think they'll run out of food.
  3. Last year I advised a friend to read through this forum because he's very new to Royal. When he asked me about TAs, I couldn't really give him much help. But I suggested he read through this since a lot of TAs do post on this forum and that may give him an idea of who to contact. Fast forward to a week ago. He told me he contacted an agent and was very responsive - usually within a day, sometimes within a few hours. He was so impressed and he asked to book. But now the agent hasn't responded to any of his emails. It seemed really strange to me. I told him that there may be an emergency or something, but I assumed the agent would put a email auto reply if that's the case. I feel bad that I suggested for him to contact the TA. Not sure what can be done. So definitely do your homework!
  4. I agree completely. This doesn't change much for us since there is still a risk for fines should we test positive on an antigen test. At this point, we have no clue if we had Covid since we're not eligible for a PCR test in our province. Being asymptomatic doesn't mean we won't test positive in an antigen test. A friend has tested positive in an antigen test for several months now...even though it's been suggested that antigen tests are not as sensitive.
  5. Thanks! Sounds like I need to follow up on this.
  6. This is the first time for me as well. Seems like everyone is having different experiences.
  7. Did you get an email from RCCL that you received it, or it was your TA who told you?
  8. It sounds like I need to keep checking. If I booked through TA, will RCCL speak with me about it? And did I read it incorrectly...does it not show on the RCCL account online?
  9. Once I cancel my cruise (CWC), will the FCC be emailed to me or my TA? I read it would be showing on my RCCL account, but I'm unclear as to where it would be posted? Thank you for any help.
  10. We got the refreshment package and never even removed the plastic wrapper on the cup. Although we're not soda drinkers, we were able to get gingerale at restaurants and bars. I, also, refuse to carry that cup around.
  11. When we crossed the land border on Dec 31st (day we disembarked), we got our PCR tests on 30th on the Anthem. And I was randomly selected while the rest of my family was not. But he said I didn't have to quarantine while waiting for my results. I did anyway. Unfortunately, because I did it on Friday, the rep said that I can either wait to get it picked up on Tuesday or drop it off. So we just dropped it off. To be honest, I was sure it would be lost...but I got the negative result on Tuesday. Same as me.
  12. This is great news! I'm waiting for them to remove return testing all together...or at the very least, permit those who test positive re-entry and quarantine at their home without a threat of a fine. If we test positive, we are more than willing to quarantine at home for 10 days.
  13. Thank you. This is great advice. For some reason, I thought the only way to lose the FCC is for it to expire. If rebook for after sep 2022 and CWC isn't extended, I will try to wait to add until I'm sure.
  14. Thank you. So, am I correct in assuming that the FCCs that was applied to the Oct 2022 will be forfeited if I cancel Oct 2022 (if CWC doesn't get extended)? This would mean that if I receive FCCs from CWC cancellation, I only have one chance to use it for rebooking using non-refundable deposit if Royal doesn't extend CWC? sorry...I'm still confused as to how the FCCs work...it sounds like I shouldn't use it for non-refundable deposit until I know I won't cancel it...otherwise, I lose it with the normal pre-covid cancellation policy.
