  1. I am probably on the same cruise as you on Symphony. I am not worried at all. The only way Royal would cancel is if the CDC forced them to cancel and I think they got it under control. All 48 people got off the ship and they did a huge deep clean of the ship on Saturday before the next cruise departed. That combined with the new mask policy I don't think they will have a problem.. There are going to be Covid cases on a cruise. Just like on land people have Covid but they have the proper protocols in place to deal with it. So no I am quite sure this cruise will be happening.
  2. Glad you give it such a positive review. I will be on her on Dec 9th and again on Dec 23rd. I love Celebrity and the refurb made me want to jump on these cruises since like you I live in Ft. Lauderdale area.
  3. The one is use is semi drive through lol. a lady comes to the car and helps you do the test but I get it you would still have to be in back of car. I guess I am just lucky I live in Ft. Lauderdale area and can get the free CVS tests lol
  4. you could always find a CVS in the area where the cruise ships leave from... I live in Ft. Lauderdale and there are plenty of rapid tests here in Florida
  5. I went to CVS and it was the easiest thing possible.. It was also Free.. I signed up two weeks in advance for a rapid antigen test. Showed up on my assigned day and time and 29 min later had my results. I strongly recommend using CVS
  6. Hello, I happen to be on the same sailing as you. I am curious what was the earlier check in time that opened up? I currently have a check in time of 12:00 pm but I am curious if there are even earlier times...
  7. Lol that's funny. Hopefully they will let you go. Would love to see you and catch up!!
  8. Hi Raye, in your signature it says you are doing symphony for the holidays.. Did you move it to Allure? I ask because I am on the Symphony new year cruise and was hoping to see you in the casino!
  9. No problem I just wanted to make sure the OP had the right info... Also This past summer they started to implament Genie type hosts.. They even escort people to the restaurant like a Genie.. They didn't make an official name for that class of suite like Star class but they are starting to have the same perks..
  10. Actually you are incorrect.. The top 4 suite categories in an Edge class ship include specialty dining Suite 12100 connects to Royal Suite 12102. 2 bedrooms w/ King Sized beds, Retreat Lounge/Sundeck, Butler 2 King Sized Beds, 2 bathrooms, Complimentary Specialty Dining, Retreat Lounge/Sundeck, Butler 2 Story Luxury Residence, Retreat Sundeck/Lounge, One bedroom, 2 full baths, Complimentary Specialty Dining, Butler Whirpool Soaking Tub, Expansive Walk-In Shower, Retreat Sundeck/Lounge, Complimentary Specialty Dining, Butler. That is the verbiage direct from Celebrity's travel agent website... The Royal suite, Edge Villa, Penthouse Suite, and Iconic Suites all come with specialty dining.. This past summer I was on Edge and Apex and personally spoke with people in an Edge Villa who had specialty dining included...
  11. no they are two separate places.. Both are in Mexico and Odyssey goes to both of them
  12. 15 years ago the main dining room was wonderful.. Now in my opinion its not good.. But that is of course my opinion.. I think you should book some specialty restaurants to mix it up and that way you can decide for yourself what you like. Half the people on here will say its great and half will say its bad.. Its so subjective
  13. Royal's travel agent call is this week.. I think they will be making a very similar announcement to travel agents that Celebrity did.. I also think during the travel agent call this week they will make the official announcement of when they will be able to sail from the USA. I am excited and I hope they will start sailing from USA in July!!!
  14. During a travel agent call with Celebrity this question was asked.. They basically said they are going to leave from Florida and they don't have to listen to that law.. Maybe they have lawyers who advised them they don't have to listen to the Governor thank god. But they said they will be leaving from Florida
  15. I am curious to see if Royal does their Check in Process at Atlantis. That would be cool if they do.
  16. I am on the same cruise as you and I am looking for the same expectations lol
  17. No Offense but you have no idea what you are talking about. Florida is no worse than any other state. In fact as others have said anyone over 18 who wants a vaccine can get one. I am 34 and I am fully vaccinated. Our state is absolutely ready for cruises to open!!!
  18. Back in December I wanted to go to Baha Mar in The Bahamas.. I was all set to go but found it EXTREMELY difficult to find a place to get a PCR test that would commit to turning around my results in a timely fashion so I could apply for The Bahamas travel visa.. Because of this at the last minute I backed out and went to Las Vegas instead.. The PCR requirement with the Travel Visa is what is stopping me from booking one of these cruises.. I was really hoping The Bahamas would say if your vaccinated no need for the PCR test but it doesn't seem to be the case.
  19. Hi everyone, some people that I know are booked on this sailing.. I happen to be a travel agent and when I logged in to see the inventory and pricing every category is closed.. This makes me think that someone possibly came in and chartered the ship. Is anyone booked on this sailing and got any kind of email notification from Royal about this sailing? Please let me know. Thanks - Stephanie
  20. I wish the CDC would just give a straight answer. If the answer is on Nov 1 we will lift the order and you can cruise out of the US just say so. That way cruise lines can plan and the public can also plan. I want to go on a Thanksgiving cruise and a New Years cruise.. If the order is listed by Nov 1 that can happen but if it isn't am I going to have to rebook a cruise out of Nassau?? Its so very frustrating
  21. I love Baha Mar. Its an amazing resort.. Just be prepared the prices for food is extremely expensive but the resort itself is beautiful and a fun place to be.
  22. Florida has been Open for months and still we have no cruises so no I don't think Texas opening up matters at all. I think we have to get the Green Light from CDC and then it will be a go.
  23. Yes I am a travel agent and got the email also.. It is for the Summer Season. Then it is still on track to move to Ft. Lauderdale for the Winter Season.. Hopefully we have cruises in USA by then.
