  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.

    Amount you bid doesn't always seem to factor in, so you can win a bid even with the minimum. 

    Also, not everyone will qualify for an upgrade. If you can't modify or cancel a bid, it is usually a sign they have accepted your bid. 

    There is a whole thread about RoyalUp.

    Thank you, that's good intel. Fingers crossed.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.


    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 than
    1 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. 


  5. 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.



  6. 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 ?

  7. 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.

  8. 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. 

  9. 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.

    weirdly - I submitted a minimum bid to upgrade from an interior to a balcony, for the march 18th sailing.  It was accepted this morning.  I thought this strange since it is so far out still to sailing. I am not complaining though!!!

    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. 😞
