Diamond (5/7)



  1. Mariner 04/09/2022 per Guest Services: Pax: 3,284 Kids: 826 Capacity: 85%
  2. @Matt @SpeedNoodles @AshleyDillo @bazingau Thanks for making this happen! IMHO, the new format looks great, and should be very useful and easier for forum members to find/post roll-calls without creating duplicates!
  3. Answers from Royal Caribbean's FAQ web page: https://www.royalcaribbean.com/faq/questions/what-documents-are-accepted-as-proof-of-vaccination According to Royal's FAQ response, pax should be OK to board with a letter as proof of vax. See attached image, and link to the Royal FAQ topic for full info.
  4. Yes, it all depends on the particular sailing and not guaranteed. Here are the details for Military, EMT/Firefighter & Senior discounts from Royal's FAQ page.
  5. @Matt & @SpeedNoodles & @AshleyDillo - For your consideration - can we please resurrect this suggestion from @bazingau for you to consider making a separate subtopic ("folder" if you will) under Roll-Calls for each ship name, so that roll-calls can be placed in the "folder" (subtopic) by ship name for ease of use? I'd recommend still following @JLMoran's topic name format syntax for the roll-calls in the (new) separate subfolders. And hopefully the admins could simply move old/existing cruises into the respective new folders by ship name to get us started. Thanks for considering.
  6. CP prices are definitely going up, up, up. I just looked for my November cruise and Drinks (DX, Refreshment, and DX w/ Voom) packages, and the two separate Voom Internet packages were all the highest I've seen them so far. Ouch.
  7. Harmony of the Seas - Oct 02, 2022 (7 Night Eastern Caribbean & Perfect Day) October 02-09, 2022 Orlando (Port Canaveral); Perfect Day at CocoCay, Bahamas; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas; Philipsburg, St. Maarten; Orlando (Port Canaveral).
  8. Check-in for my upcoming May 7th cruise opened at midnight last night (45 days out). Check-in didn't show as available at first. I kept refreshing, and was able to check in at about 12:05 am. If your cruise is May 8th, perhaps you will be able to check-in after midnight tonight?
  9. I haven't been on Wonder yet to go to the Mason Jar. But other specialty restaurants that I've been to thus far just have a separate lunch menu (different from the dinner menu). It's been my experience there is no restriction on the amount of food one could order. However, I know there are some a la carte restaurants where you would have to pay extra per item(s) ordered. I don't believe Mason Jar is one of those. See @Matt's blog post on specialty restaurants, and his review (complete with menus) of the Mason Jar. The Brunch Menu from the Mason Jar (in the aforementioned Mason Jar review) may answer your question, too. Hope this helps! Folks who have been on Wonder, and to the Mason Jar, will hopefully chime in and provide more accurate Mason Jar-specific info.
  10. Can't answer for Allure, but here are some recent pics of the snacks available at Cafe Promenade on Harmony and Independence.
  11. It was closed three weeks ago on Harmony. Maybe @Pooch can update us (please) since they were just on Harmony last week?
  12. I haven't used the Royal chat app myself, as I always purchase Wi-Fi and use other chat apps to connect with folks. However, in @Matt's article "Royal Caribbean's chat feature is now available on every cruise ship", he says all users that you want to chat with have to purchase the $1.99/day chat feature; and maybe most importantly - guest users will only appear :online if they have the Royal app open to the “chat” window. This leads me to believe the app may not be very useful, as one could not communicate with an "offline" cruiser who doesn't actually have the app actively launched on their phone, AND with the Royal chat window actually open. So if your kids have the app on their phone, but they are playing a game or doing something else with their phone, presumably they would not get a message alert, or you simply could not even message them. Seems pretty useless to me. I can't imagine many pax opt for this paid chat feature, but I could be wrong! Would be interested to hear from any folks who have actually used the app as to its usefulness. As for me, Wi-Fi will always be worth the cost of $15.99/day to stay in touch with folks on the ship and at home.
  13. Was very happy to see this post by @Matt "Hochberg of the Seas" this afternoon. "UPDATE: Royal Caribbean crew members continue to serve guests at Windjammer across the fleet. While there was self-service on some ships today, crew will be serving guests tomorrow again in Windjammer." https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2022/03/22/spotted-cruise-ship-passengers-serving-themselves-buffet-again
