  1. Anyone sailing on the Beyond soon ? We have been on Carnival and Royal only, but this new Celebrity really calls our attention. We are just a bit afraid that we might be let down by the activities and entertainment on board compared to the Oasis class ships as it is more targeting an older audience. (We are in our late 20's). A comparison learns us that when you add up everything Celebrity is not that much more expensive as it includes gratuity, basic wifi, drink package and obc.
  2. You guys were right, I couldn't modify or cancel my bid, today we received an email from Royal that our offer was accepted. We will move from a central Park Balcony to an Ocean View Balcony for just 50$ p/p on a 14 day cruise on the Wonder of The Seas to Barcelona Still can't believe it how cheap we got it .
  3. Emed currently only has stock of the 6 pack Still hoping for an answer from Royal soon to get it sorted out. Enjoy your cruise !!!
  4. Does Anyone already have news on the tests from Ihealth being approved by Royal ? Still waiting on any confirmation from Royal itself. We can't seem to order from the Optum store with an international credit card and Emed 6 tests are overkill for only 2 persons.
  5. Thank you, that's good intel. Fingers crossed.
  6. I just wanted to check our royal up offer for our upcoming cruise, but when I login I get a message Not eligible for upgrade. We do have an outstanding pending offer for a Balcony room, but I can't modify or cancel it ? Anyone has a similar experience with it ? I only bid like 50 dollar per person (upgrade from central park balcony) on a 14 day cruise so I highly doubt our bid will be even accepted. Sorry still new to the whole Royal Up program so trying to find out how to deal with it.
  7. Royal is increasing capacity from what I can see. Transatlantic for the Wonder Of The Seas was sold out according to my travel agent and now a lot of cabins are bookable since the CDC lowered to level 2. Feel a bit mixed about it, but for the industry that's good news.
  8. very expensive I must say. You better compare prices via www.hotelscombined.com before booking.
  9. I like to have both, its just easier to preview everything in advance, but in the MDR its fancier to keep the paper menu.
  10. Thanks guys really interesting to know how they manage it. I was a bit afraid that the menu would be starting to look unappealing after week 1 because of eating the same items over again. We had that on Carnival once on a B2B and got a bit bored tbh. Might book a few speciality dining restaurants nevertheless to mix things up.
  11. In case you don’t know or haven’t heard about it be aware that for a transatlantic sailing the test requirement is only 1 day prior to the sailing instead of 2 See the statement from Royal we received yesterday. Transatlantic Sailing We can't wait for you to join us on our Transatlantic sailing. Please note, the following information is only for guests departing from Fort Lauderdale, Florida and ending in Barcelona, Spain. Due to the fluidity of this situation, our protocols are subject to change, and we are committed to keeping you informed if they do. Some destinations we visit require additional testing and may have restrictions for guests who are not up-to-date with their vaccines. As a result, we strongly recommend getting boosted before your cruise. Testing Pre-Cruise All guests 2 and older, regardless of vaccination status, will be required to present a negative test result for an antigen test taken no more than1 day before our sailing.During the Cruise & Prior to Disembarking Guests 12 and older who are considered unvaccinated by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) or who are not up-to-date with their vaccines will require additional testing during our sailing depending on itinerary.
  12. Exactly, its based on cabin number so you should be fine with it.
  13. Sorry if the question has been raised before, but didn't found a topic about it. We are on the Wonder of the Seas cruise from Fort Lauderdale to Barcelona and I'm curious to know if the MDR and Windjammer would just have repeated menus after week 1 or is there more variation ? Same question for the entertainment especially now that that doesn't seem to be up to par yet on the Wonder. This is our first cruise longer than 7 days that's not a back2back so we are a bit in the dark on what to expect.
  14. Ultimate DIning and 3 Night dining packages are gone on the cruise planner for our upcoming Wonder of The Seas Cruise. Is there any difference for booking the restaurants prior to our sailing or are the prices the same onboard ? Also do they offer any kind of deal when you book multiple restaurants on board ?
  15. Yikes .. you are still allowed to take an Xbox console with you right ?
  16. Hi Alan Meanwhile Royal has accepted our vaccination passes so we are good to go. just wait a couple of days and try again, maybe it was’t clear. Make sure you upload the EU digital certification pass with the number on it together with the manufacturer of the vaccin, your name, date it was taken. if not give them a call. I advice you to use VOIP to call to the US.
  17. My GF is vegan as well and she likes the menu on Wonder so far for our upcoming cruise. I thought these menus where fleet wide. Care to share what you would see improved ? I honestly think that they are doing a good job with all the offerings in all the Venus likes Windjammer.
  18. It makes sense actually because you can only stay in one cabin at the time.
  19. For those who are on the inaugural sailing what are the things you like, dislike and what can be improved ?
  20. Agree with you. Don't think having game consoles in public places will do any good so I understand the policy on that. I don't even have to drink anything to get angry sometimes with certain games so those ones are on the blacklist for me during the cruise It's all about respecting your fellow cruisers.
  21. Hi Dimension, don't know about Raspberry Pi4 , but as for the remote you can get a universal remote model bn59-01315a from Amazon I can confirm that one is working.
  22. And I am sure some people pack their consoles to take on the ship as well. Raises his hand Its perfectly doable with a xbox series s on longer itineraries because you aren't gonna see the shows over and over again. For trips of 7 days or shorter just leave it at home and enjoy the entertainment onboard.
  23. You can see the dinner menu in the royal app.
  24. For just 100 dollar OMG nice one
  25. That’s awesome Mark ! Enjoy it, wow that’s a great upgrade. doubts that gonna be the case with us as we just heard from our travel agent that the sailing is completely sold out.
