  1. My friend Carol and I have just booked this cruise. 79th birthday celebration for both of us. Visited Bermuda many years ago, so looking forward to many memories.
  2. I leave May 5th on Ovation of the Seas( for 8 day Alaska) sister of Quantum. Since I am solo I have cabin 12631 which is a virtual balcony. Will post after cruise. First trip to Alaska, First time Ovation, first time inside with virtual balcony. LOL!
  3. I did call Royal and they verified Ovation, all paperwork says Ovation. Just bummed that I lost $75 and didnt know it LOL liz
  4. Hi, just received email from Royal regarding $75.00 onboard credit remaining on my account. Booking number was the same as for Ovation of the Seas my current cruise but listed Anthem of the Seas sailing May2. Called customer service and they told me this was a promotional onboard credit and thats why I am not entitled to it on transferred cruise even though booking is the same. Why did Royal mess up by sending me an email for Anthem for May 2 when my booking shows Ovation May 5th?
  5. Thanks for this Twangster, I will be heading north on May 3rd for my date with Ovation of the seas May5th
  6. thanks maybe I will gamble $10 LOL! before cashing out
  7. okay stupid question what do I do to cash out at casino
  8. Will Royal use my OBC first? Will I receive cash or check back if all cash not used?
  9. hello booked my test with Ihealth. will be using this proctored test on May 3rd at 5AM my cruise is May 5th. I did not want to spend the money on Abbott when I have 4 free ones. Now if Royal wants to bar my boarding for this so be it..... I will post my success here
  10. Thanks twangster, wonder why I am not Gold, why did they give me 8 points but not make me Gold? Oh well no matter.
  11. C&A has me listed as Pre-Gold 8 points, does that give me anything for my upcoming Ovation of the Seas 8 day. I am Solo and booked during the double points offer. Someone said I would be Emerald after completing this cruise. How is that possible?
  12. Documents received! 30 days yeah! Now to packing or what to pack for no more that 50 lbs. I am a big woman and my undergarments weigh 10 lbs LOL!!!!
  13. Thank you, twangster for this video, deciding if I really needed my camera or just use my phone, seeing this video I know I need my camera with lots of GB's, also binoculars. I dont have a balcony (virtual), guess I will spend time either 270 or solarium or if its beautiful day like you had, outside somewhere.
  14. Booked on Ovation May 5th. I think this cruise is first for the season. Hope Royal has kept everything spiffy for us
  15. Wow! iluvwine 6 times. Do you live on West Coast? I live in Florida and 12 times to the Caribbean because I dont have to pay airfare. I am looking forward to this cruise but disapointed I needed to cancel my European travel plans for a second time. Hopefully next year will be better, but being 80 and traveling solo it might just be wishful thinking and planning LOL!
  16. Anyone joining me? First trip to Alaska! I use a walker so most port excursions are either budget busting or too strenous. But scenry will be all I need. Live in Florida so I will be purchasing rain jacket, duck boots, hat, gloves and puffy vest, just in case Will leave this on board to be used or donated.
  17. I have cancelled this cruise, because St Petersburg was my main bucket port. Royal wont dock in St Petersburg if confilict is still on the horizon. If this were Black Sea cruise I believe the whole cruise would be cancelled. Visit cruisecritic site for more info and answers to any concerns you have. This is where I get my main info.
  18. Hello folks I too am on this cruise (covid willing) My first time on Anthem and TA. 78 year old widow from Gulf Coast in Fl, in virtual on deck 11. I will be connecting with Voyager of the Seas in Copenhagen on May 15 for Baltic cruise, that's a first also. Had same itinerary for 2020 but we know how that went. Hoping that the ports are open when we sail. Just wondering if Royal will give us free testing in Southampton. I will make a decision in March on these 2 cruises would hate to cancel and go through the trouble of 2020 again, but not worth the Baltic cruise if ports continue to be closed.
  19. I'm a member on another forum annnnd a few comments have indicated that some are canceling European cruises. I will wait until March to make decision on these 2 cruises. Hate to think about canceling after the hassle of 2020, but dont want to be stuck in Europe either. My Voyager of the Seas cruise is port intensive and may decide to just cancel that one and come home when this one ends.
  20. Come and join me I am Sandra age 78 from Punta Gorda. FL traveling solo. Disembarking Southmpton on May 13th from Anthem of the Seas. Hope we get to visit the ports on this sailing!
  21. Hello, Not many posting on this TA. I'm on May 15th Voyager of the Seas Baltic out of Copenhagen after this ship docks so appreciated the magnets and clothesline info. Most of the other ships I've sailed have had clothesline in shower. Hilton Garden Inn at Heathrow has coin laundry so I will be clean for next leg of this trip. I am Sandra age 78 (solo) and resident of Punta Gorda little further South of Dunedin. I use a walker so will be limited on the port trips but thats okay love being on the ship. This is my first TA but have been to Europe on Land trips, although the ports on Baltic will be new except for Copenhagen.
