  1. Can we please stay a bit more on topic here? I'm truly wondering about his very topic and at least one full page worth of replies are birthday, retirement, & IRA/401k talk. (Sorry to vent, just frustrated) I have an Explorer cruise booked for January 29th. Given the rapidly approaching date, IF it sails, I'm sure it will be at a reduced capacity. I'm wondering if we will get booted since we we tend to "budget cruise" (interior cabin, re-pricing when the chance comes), even though we are VERY LOYAL C&A members that book early and A LOT of what we save on cruise fare to put tow
  2. This post has been up for over an hour and there’s still no reaction from @coneyraven?
  3. Congratulations! Not only have you been kicked off the ship in a foreign country, but, now you have to find a way to travel home amongst severe COVID-19 travel restrictions! (Queue the sad "you lost" tuba music from The Price Is Right)
  4. I fairly certain that the CDC doesn't want to hear MY opinions on anything. Whatever I would write to them would have way too much ranting and obscenities! On a serious note, I really hope that not too many submissions come from the "anti-cruise" crowd. I'm sure you know the type. The people that always NEED to comment "This is why I would never go on a cruise" whenever a negative story about a cruise pops up.
  5. Saw this article posted on the FB C&A page. Interview with Healthy Sail Panel member, Dr. Scott Gottlieb. https://www-foxnews-com.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/www.foxnews.com/travel/health-expert-cruise-ship-safer-travel-coronavirus.amp
  6. I’ve had this same problem in the past. This is the first cruise I’ve ever been able to reprice at all, let alone twice in a month!
  7. UPDATE!!! With the current sale going on as of today (July 9th) I called again to receive another $144 off of our cruise fare. In just under one month, we have now saved $388! Keep checking those prices! FYI: I use the price alert feature on the Shipmate app to monitor prices. It sends me an email each time the price changes (up or down).
  8. Ever since this article came out, this has been a big concern for me, as well. If this is what happens, I can't help but feel like we'll be punished for taking advantage of a good deal. Our next cruise (Late January '21) continues to be available for booking and I'm starting wonder if someone that books MUCH later at a higher cost will be accommodated while loyal customers that book early, like myself, are left standing on the pier, so to speak. I certainly hope the determinations would not just be made by initial booking costs. We like to book cheaper fare so that we can spend more
  9. How about a cruise that just sails to BOTH of RC’s private destinations? Maybe even multiple day stays at one Like: Miami/Sea Day/Labadee/2x sea days/Coco Cay/Coco Cay/Sea Day/Miami
  10. Hello, All! Been a while since I've been here. Several times in the past, I've done a second "mock-booking" of my existing reservation, to see if I would come up with a lower price to no avail. With the current 2021 sale going on, I was able to see that booking an available cabin RIGHT NEXT TO MINE was $79 cheaper so I decided to call RCCL. (Not a bunch, but, hey, every bit helps!) To my surprise, not only was the basic rate $79 cheaper, but, I actually qualified for an additional discount as a resident of MICHIGAN! This has NEVER happened for me. In my experience, those discoun
  11. A little of the late, great Mitch Hedberg for you........ I bought some fake plants, but, I did not pretend to water them, so they died. I was at a friend's house and he asked me if I wanted a frozen banana. I said, "No, but, I want a regular banana later, so, yeah."
  12. Have you cruised with those other companies during a potential global pandemic?
  13. Isn't there also a way for the one person that does cruise to get the C&A points for the person that doesn't show? I seem to recall something about that a month or so back.
  14. Hmm, you may need to call Royal about this. I do know that a woman on one of our cruises brought her own olive oil. (She was on a very restrictive diet for health reasons.) Our waiter in the MDR kept it in a galley area for her and would bring it to the table for her each night.
