  1. I think eating at specialty restaurants with your husband sounds like a great idea, if you got a great deal definitely keep it. I am guessing you will be mixing it up with the MDR/main dining room a few nights here and there? Windjammer is closed for dinner so I will need to look for different options. I will probably do MDR on formal nights and other nights just grab something quick from Two70... might even do Pizza a few nights lol... All good regarding facebook. Hope to meet you onboard. There isn't an official meet and greet but I am planning on being on the pool deck during sailaway at 6pm before heading to dinner. You can't miss me since I will be wearing a "Cruising with JT" tshirt lol, please stop me and say hello! Sorry if I missed your name @MicDay earlier?
  2. I saw that! Although I am definitely doing Windjammer for breakfast and lunch since it will be closed for Dinner, which is when I will go to the MDR or other quick places to eat... I might only do MDR a few nights since I am going solo (don't really want to be eating solo for 1-2 hours lol). It is interesting that entertainment options are not open yet, although I think it is getting closer. Check in opened, then eDocs came, and now Entertainment I would think will come, OR they may just ask you to reserve when you get onboard via the app which is fine. Last time we went in 2019, we only booked "Pixels" their awesome cinematography show on Cruise planner, everything else was wide open if I recall. Can't even remember their main theater show which we may have reserved or walked in. We will know more in the coming weeks. Also if you guys are not on the FB group for Ovation August 27th sailing you should join, it's got a lot more updates and conversation regarding this sailing, testing, etc etc.
  3. Agreed... I have already booked flights using miles but the cancellation policy is flexible... I am not sure about 11/14 Harmony or my 12/5 Oasis... I think for now I am only confident about my 8/27 Ovation and 9/19 Oasis...but things are changing so fast... go away Delta variant...
  4. I am hearing that you can do drive through rapid tests and they don't really ask you why you're there since you're sitting in the car?
  5. Why would anyone get a test by themselves when they have to pay for it? Everyone is going to opt for the complimentary test from Royal in a separate terminal. From my understanding, rapid-antigen or PCR tests are not covered by insurance if they are related for a "travel" reason. They are only covered if you actually have symptoms. Not sure lying is a good idea either.
  6. I honestly think there may be a huge backlash from Royal's vaccinated customers about this and maybe Royal might change a few things. They should just do the testing at the terminal on the day of sailing, so much can happen in between 3 days prior to sailing and the day of sailing. Heck, make it less stressful for your guests! No other cruise line is putting their guests through this kind of experience. Last minute changes, protocols etc. Come on Royal.
  7. I am hoping Royal Caribbean offers guidance on this. We still have a few weeks to sort this out, luckily. I am planning on getting tested on Wednesday the 25th, going the antigen test route for quick results and don't want Q-tip shoved up to my brain.
  8. Booooooo! I understand why they are doing it, but it's almost like being vaccinated means nothing now -- https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2021/07/29/royal-caribbean-will-require-negative-covid-19-test-all-us-sailings-longer-4-nights
  9. I think I might be the only cruiser staying on the ship the whole time I've been to Alaska twice, going back mostly for the ship. I miss cruising, the ship is usually my destination (unless it's going to Perfect day @ cococay)
  10. You will enjoy Mendenhall Glacier and White pass scenic railway for sure! I have never done the whale watching or sea otters/raptors.
  11. @DarinMHi! Me too... I am booked on Nov 14th, just created a roll call here but not much action, I recommend joining the FB group that has been created as well for 11/14 Harmony! Almost 300 people in there and active + fun! First sailing out of the US for Harmony let's goooo!
