  1. Cool thanks for the feedback. Excited to see these cruise ships restart and hope to be on one of them... I booked Odyssey in November because the way things were looking a month or so ago, ships sailing out of the US this summer seemed like a long shot. Hoping to get 1 additional cruise in before Odyssey in November.
  2. If money is not an issue, I would definitely book Odyssey from Florida over Adventure from Nassau. Odyssey is a newer ship, offers more amenities and you don't have to go through the various hoops like flying into another country such as the Bahamas (health visa and all that). I checked prices for July 3rd and they are insanely high, so be prepared to open up your wallet if you decide to go that route. If not, the Adventure sailing should work out nicely as well ?
  3. I am looking into Freedom summer cruises, most notably the 3 and 4 days sailings out of Miami leaving in July, however I know that Freedom is also the first to conduct test cruising from 6/20 to 6/22. What happens when Freedom "passes" or "fails" those test cruises? If they pass, the July cruises are good to go I assume...and if they fail, they are a no go? Curious since we are in final payment at this time.
  4. Everyone has an idea of what a cruise looks like for them going forward. If you're down with the restrictions, please have a good time! And I get what you mean about vaccines being shoved down people's throats, let's just say there was a reason for that...
  5. I was also looking at the new Odyssey sailings and the ship has no cruise scheduled between 11/11 and 11/15. So I think it may just be chillin' at sea or at port?
  6. I actually want to see a full 7-night cruise happen (no test cruises). One is vaccinated with no masks and restrictions, One is unvaccinated with masks and restrictions. Tell me which one is more fun and which one you'd rather go on.
  7. I was also looking at the new Odyssey sailings and the ship has no cruise scheduled between 11/11 and 11/15. So I think it may just be chillin' at sea or at port?
  8. I immediately looked at this cruise since I was on the now old Odyssey inaugural on 11/15, but holy guacamole the prices!
  9. Fully agree with this as well. I think that's what people are missing the point on...if an outbreak or something happens with unvaccinated people, you are putting the whole industry in jeopardy. I know vaccinated people can cause issues too BUT far less likely than unvaccinated people. Vaccinated people are less likely to get severe illness or die, unvaccinated people...well...you know the death count...
  10. That's awesome, we'll see how these unvaccinated cruises go at the restart. Fingers crossed shit doesn't go down and the industry gets shutdown again by the CDC. They are watching. Don't F up cruise operators!
  11. I am with you...I really don't want to cancel my Royal cruises...shoot... look at Norwegian, Carnival, Celebrity, they are requiring the vaccine. Come on Royal...
  12. I haven't heard of any severe cases, but there have been breakthrough cases "people getting infected after getting the vaccine". It is around 10,000 people out of the 101,000,000 that have gotten the vaccine, so like .00000000001%
  13. I would not got on a cruise if I wasn't vaccinated. Plain and simple.
  14. All good, everyone has a different opinion, I was just going off of what I am seeing on other social media sites like Facebook and my thoughts, most people aren't too happy with the decision. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out. Fortunately for me my next cruise isn't until November. I am a big believer in that the best and safest way to get cruising restarted out of the US is to require vaccines for all those who are eligible. Plain and simple. It's temporary, not forever, just do it at the start, because if something happens onboard, the CDC is ready to shut it down again.
  15. Yay!!! Cruise embarkation day! Thanks for the pics, keep em coming!! Sorry about the slow internet, hate when that happens!
  16. Shocking news of the day... Carnival requires vaccine but Royal drops it. Who could've predicted that? Disappointing news for sure for myself and all other Loyal to Royal cruisers but let's see how this all plays out. I think Royal dropped the ball on this to be honest but we'll see...oh and that Carnival Mardi Gras ship don't look too bad...I got a feeling that Royal may reverse course... usually happens when there is a huge backlash from their loyal customer base. Michael Bayley (President/CEO of Royal Caribbean) said that 80% of their guests prefer to go on cruise ships that ARE vaccinated, so of course this decision makes perfect sense. LOL.
  17. Welp looks like this isn't the "Inaugural" sailing anymore...bummer... good thing at least they didn't cancel this 5-nighter leaving 11/15...prices for the July 3rd inaugural are crazy!!!!!
  18. Awesome!! It's almost cruise day!! Also a huge fan of Danny @ Harr Travel, no doubt the best at ship tours out of anyone I have seen. Can't wait to see this one!
  19. Safe travels! Looking forward to following along on your experience!
  20. I just hope they don't cancel or change the 11/15 sailing, 5 night sailing to Perfect day and Labadeeeee.
  21. Sounds like a plan! Have a wonderful time ? I hope Seattle delivers you beautiful weather during your visit!
  22. Also if you want a one of a kind view of Seattle, head to Kerry Park, which you'll see on the map I posted above ?
  23. Hi there! I have never stayed in a Hilton in downtown but I would definitely recommend trying to find one near all the action in Seattle downtown. Not sure if you're renting a car or Uber/Lyfting it but in red circle is where the cruise port is, in blue circles is where all the action is you'll want to experience especially if it's your first time to Seattle.
