  1. Glad I have decided not to cruise at this time of the year. Remember when everyone was talking about quiet August was for tropical development?
  2. People on Twitter are very, very unhappy.
  3. https://www.royalcaribbean.com/blog/what-to-know-about-cruising-this-hurricane-season/ Here is an article detailing Royal Caribbean's hurricane team.
  4. The only hurricane worth experiencing comes from Royal Caribbean.
  5. Poor Bermuda, ever since my cruise left King's Landing it's been poor weather for this country. Also the queen died right after we returned to port. I know the country desperately needs the water, but not the high winds. A resilient people, I wish them the best. Also hopefully no dragons. Very small number of active COVID cases there currently. No changes to policies regarding Travel Authorization. https://www.royalgazette.com/tourism/news/article/20220917/government-defends-cruise-ship-covid-policy-in-wake-of-cancellations/ And yes people on the island would like to see increased tourism, especially people near the port.
  6. I know a really cool dedicated Royal Caribbean fan and passionate cruiser who created this article showing pictures of the ship under construction. https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2022/08/26/aerial-photos-show-icon-of-the-seas-cruise-ship-construction-progress
  7. The US Congress has attempted numerous times to mandate changes for cruise ships, they will again be trying this year. The name of the proposed legislation is usually called the Cruise Passenger Protection Act. Cruise companies would be required to retain surveillance footage for 20 days, and they have five years to comply with the camera rule. As of now, I am not aware of any US law mandating the time that a cruise ship company must retain records.
  8. If it makes you feel any better about Florida's weather, dense fog in Germany resulted in a Viking ship ramming another ship. The kitchen ended up in a real mess.
  9. I just pray they don't learn to adapt to fresh pool water. No one wants the shock of their life to be at the end of a giant waterslide.
  10. I have not heard anything about these webcams since they went offline a few years ago. No news when or if they will ever be reactivated. I checked the links for various ships and news articles and they are all offline.
  11. This news story reminds me of a famous childhood song my mother used to sing to me as a baby. Star light, star bright, First Starlink I see tonight, I wish I may, I wish I might, Have the internet speed I wish tonight
  12. "Escape Room" (submarine-themed, located on Boardwalk Deck 6) provides puzzle-breaking team gaming experience As far as I know earlier this year in May the room was still being constructed, and the room was basically empty. It was expected to be completed sometime in the fall of this year. I couldn't find any other news about it for this ship.
  13. Bermuda for my cruise REQUIRED me to bring the negative test certified by a reputable laboratory to the front counter in Baltimore for check-in. I was NOT required to upload that test result to the Bermuda Travel Authorization document. There will be an automatic email requesting this test result to be added to your application from the Bermudan government. Which you can ignore. But you need to have a negative test result until such time as the government of Bermuda changes this policy.
  14. I have an article for you. https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2022/05/06/royal-caribbean-doesnt-require-back-back-cruisers-do-covid-test-anymore There are some exceptions: If your subsequent cruise visits Canada or Bermuda, you will need to complete a test before that sailing commences. Guest Services will contact your before the sailing to arrange for that testing. https://www.royalcaribbean.com/faq/questions/can-i-book-back-to-back-cruises-at-this-time
