  1. Tempting .... but not yet, although, I did book refundable for the Explorer cruise, so, you never know. will have to look at the itineraries first. If it's "my girl" sailing it in the Fall of '22, the odds are greater of a switch. Now, these sailings are THIS coming winter..... if, by chance, our cruise on Oasis gets canceled in September, we could always book Grandeur over the winter as a replacement.
  2. Please add October 27, 2022 --- Explorer .... Nothing like Halloween on a Cruise Ship.
  3. I didn't think there were any International flights out of DCA .... Either way, dang, BWI is still my favorite.
  4. Interesting with Washington .... I'm assuming Dulles (IAD) . No International flights out of DCA and I would assume it would say Baltimore if it was BWI
  5. My wife and I are in our 50's ..... we don't need all the "bells and whistles" to enjoy ourselves. Plus, our kids are grown, so, the fewer kids the better. It's smaller, more intimate, just a slower pace, which is what we love. Just show us where the bar, the food, and pool are, and we're good. Even at night, we love going to the front of the ship and star gaze (We constantly watch it when the ISS goes over when we're at home in the central Appalachians.)
  6. Who knows ... things seem to be in a state of flux right now. For those of us that love Lady G, it's very comforting to know that there is a plan for her..... and there are some AWESOME new ports and itineraries to choose from. Assuming these become popular, hopefully she'll be sticking around for a while.
  7. Here's an updated photo --- Everything above Deck 7 is gone and everything from the VCL forward is gone. Looks like the only thing left would be the Casino (Deck 5 aft) and the Main Dining Rooms (Decks 3 & 4 aft) ..... There is no Deck 6 aft on Sovereign
  8. Hehehehe ...... So far, my daily departed Lady G (very cozy & intimate, more like old style cruising) -- we don't need all the bells & whistles to enjoy ourselves.---- We would've like Brilliance more had there been fewer kids (totally our fault for booking a cruise over Easter) ---- the back patio of the Windjammer on Brilliance is insane. Loved Navigator (pre-amp'd) ---- it was like the Goldilock's of ships --- not too big, not too small
  9. If there's one thing we've learned over the past year, without humor, we wouldn't be able to survive this crap
  10. Coming to a cabin near you.
  11. I wonder what airlines fly in and out of Barbados
  12. The way I found it was going in through "Ships" --- then selecting Grandeur, and lo and behold, sailings pop up ---- what really made it so wonky is that all the descriptions of the ship still referenced Baltimore, Bermuda and Canada sailings and such. Also, the sailing having times on certain days without a port or mentioning a Sea Day tells me things are still being put together. I think we unintentionally just got a sneak peak at things to come. New and creative itineraries, which seems to be the trend. For examples, sailings from Florida going to Bermuda --- that's new stuff right there.
  13. Just to make sure you understand.... the government hasn't given Royal a dime in assistance during these times...... they ARE struggling and are trying to stay afloat (pun intended) just like all the other cruise lines. The federal government, to my knowledge, hasn't given any financial assistance to any of the major cruise companies (RC, Carnival, Norwegion) ----- Also, to assume that Carnival would've reacted differently during these tough times is just that, an assumption. When you made the booking, there were options out there, like, for example, booking a refundable deposit, which would
  14. Those days in which it doesn't say "Sea Day" but has a time..... It almost looks like they're trying to fit in another port within those times. That would be incredible.
  15. Makes me wonder if these itineraries were revealed prematurely ..... you never know with the RC web site ....
  16. And this is the moment I'd be getting my TA on the phone..... STAT.
  17. Yeah, there's no way we could get off work for 14 days, it looks AMAZING .... But I wonder if the 7-nighter might be in play.
  18. Although, there is the question of...... what's she going to be doing in '21? We shall see.
  19. Check out the pricing on this sailing... https://www.royalcaribbean.com/cruises/itinerary/7-night-deep-southern-caribbean-from-bridgetown-on-grandeur/GR07BGI-1345718143?sail-date=2022-02-13&currency=USD
  20. This is a new one ..... they just released a couple of sailings on Grandeur in 2022 that start/end at Barbados. Wow. Looks like I need to relocate closer to my precious Lady G. The pricing and the couple of itineraries released are definitely in a "WOW" world.....dang. And the pricing is good to. You just need to get there.
