  1. I put in my booster date and it worked fine. They just want to make sure you're either fully vaccinated or boosted.
  2. Only thing I am doing is Thrill water park again at CocoCay and wandering around the island. That is the only place I am getting off... Labadee looks nice, I may get off for a little bit but the ship is the place for me too!
  3. That would be epic! I remember them doing that with Oasis, Allure and Harmony when Harmony came out many years ago.
  4. It's just a rumor at this point. We really need to hear it from Royal Caribbean directly. They should announce something in the coming weeks if it is true. It would be a big bummer for sure since I know so many people are looking forward to this one. If it happens, that would royally be painful but I will just book another cruise.
  5. Looks like I am slowly heading towards the decision to cancel as well, unfortunately. I am booked on Navigator 1/17 and as of now I am still on it, however with everything going on, not knowing what could happen with things on the ship and ports etc, and most importantly having an unvaccinated 4-year daughter at home, I don't know if I want to take any chances of bringing something back home and giving it to her. I know she can catch it at school too but their daycare is also impacted as staff/classrooms have had positive cases, so we are keeping her home for the next week and maybe longer. Sigh...don't know what to do... I had to cancel my LA hotel tonight before the 6pm deadline for a full refund...what's weird is the rates are now even less than when I booked the hotel a few months ago. Guess everyone is cancelling literally everything. Omicron has really impacted so much. Still blows my mind that airplanes are packed, sports stadiums and the like... wish i didn't have to fly to LA from Seattle to get on the cruise...
  6. So sorry to hear about this happening to you...something no one ever wants to experience. I hope your 3 year old is doing okay? Take care and I know you'll get to get back on a ship sometime again in the near future.
  7. That is a bummer for sure. I always look forward to AquaTheater shows. Looks like no "HIRO" on this sailing. Regardless, have a wonderful time and Happy New Year!
  8. Hopefully we avoid another shutdown as that won't do anyone good and it will just leave people more frustrated and angry that we can't seem to get a handle on this thing and we'll be spinning in circles forever as new variants come out every year. Personally, I am going on Navigator of the Seas in 18 days. Am I cancelling? No. Am I aware that my cruise experience may be impacted? Yes. Am I still going to enjoy myself regardless if no ports or shows are there? Yes. As much as I love to visit ports and watch shows, the main draw for me about a cruise is the ship itself and the ocean views. I can walk around the ship and watch the ocean for days without knowing anything else is going on. Just get me out to sea and I am a happy camper. I will continue to mask up and protect myself and those around me. I wore my mask in vaccinated areas during my 4 cruises in 2 months and returned home healthy each time.
  9. Finally visiting CocoCay after nearly 2 years of waiting was the best part! I was really happy and fortunate to go on 4 cruises in 2 months between August and October, and one of my favorite things about being back onboard was seeing all the smiles on the faces of crew members excited to see us back doing what we love, and vice versa. It had been a rough 15+ months for everyone and simply having the chance to go back out to sea and enjoy what we love most was truly the best part. And of course I love love loved the limited capacity, the amazing shows, the late night Sorrento's pizza and the drinks flowing nonstop. Cruising is back and I am so glad to be part of the comeback like everyone else! Here's to 2022!
  10. Does anyone else think they will replace Labadee with CocoCay like they did for Odyssey in November? I hope so! 2 visits to CocoCay would be epic in a week!
  11. Less than 90 days, so excited! I am even more pumped that my first Diamond cruise will be on the Wonder of the Seas, should be special. Free drinks woot woot!
  12. I would love to but am no longer booked on Freedom! Change of plans this year! Hope to go some time in the future
  13. Wow just noticed the pricing for this cruise, I cancelled a few months ago but now my room is $450 less. Must not be selling well? Enjoy the reduced capacity (I think)!
  14. Why can't Royal just do 2 days at CocoCay? No one wants to go to Nassau! LOL.
  15. Have a great time everyone! I had to cancel a few months back but had my fun on 4 cruises in 2 months. I'll be on Odyssey in April 2022!
  16. Hi @MaryS! I am so happy that I met you at Thrill Waterpark and we got to go on the Slingshot together, that was so much fun I miss it and can't believe it's been over a month now! How have you been? I just wrapped up my 4th and final solo cruise of 2021 last week (on the Norwegian Encore, last ship to go to Alaska in 2021 and it was epic!). I shared a bunch of pics, reels and videos on my Instagram, Facebook and YouTube pages, more coming soon. Hope you enjoy and get to relive some of the memories that I posted from our Oasis cruise
  17. Hey there! Was on a cruise on Oasis and not checking these forums! Ovation was not operating when I was onboard in August, but it sounds like it is back up and running from the last few cruises.
  18. Looks like Royal is not going to extend this promotion, so here I am going through the website trying to book another cruise for Fall 2022 since I got nothing around that time! I got 3 in Feb, March, and April 2022 which will get me to Diamond status, but Diamond+ is the next goal! Pinnacle seems like a stretch lol.
  19. I am pretty sure they'll be doing something special, but not sure what yet... usually inaugurals have cool festivities and stuff, like balloons when entering, music, maybe fireworks at CocoCay are in store for the world's soon to be largest and newest ship! I am WONDERing myself as well.
