    I believe the lowest price I ever saw for our Wonder sailing last week was 230. I didn't follow this blog as closely then and did not purchase. After that it never got below 265 (so we did 3 package instead)

    I saw it listed at $17.99 several months ago, but since then it's been $22.99.  I still keep checking but the price has been unchanged for months now.  I'm not buying any of the packages, because I usually just drink iced tea, juice at breakfast, and one mocktail/day so it's not worth it for me.

    Don't let tipping anxiety get in the way of having fun.  If you've prepaid the gratuities or choose have them charged daily while you're on board you're good to go.  You can keep some cash handy to reward any individual crew member that you feel went above and beyond for you.  It is not expected but will be appreciated.

    daha699 reacted to PPPJJ-GCVAB in Next RC Planner Sale?   
    Prices do change…higher, lower, according to different sales.  My advice is book when you see a price you like…because you can always call and get a lower price anytime up until 48 hours before sailing.  Lol my family laughs at me because once I have a cruise booked it becomes a ritual for me to check the pricing pretty much daily!  And I will say I have saved quite a bit!  Not that I am a frequent cruiser either…although that is my ultimate goal!!!

    This is a major plus for my wife and I who will be sailing as Diamonds for our first time on Sunday!  We prefer the "smart" drink menu anyway, including some frozen multi-colored ones we can enjoy by the pool...

    You can also order a drink priced higher than $13. They will just charge you for the difference.

    daha699 reacted to Cruise4TheSoul in Wonder of the Seas delayed?   
    I was watching a cruise vlogger who is also a travel agent last night and she mentioned that there are rumors that Wonder will not be ready for her inaugural sailing and Spring cruises may be cancelled. We are booked on the March 25th sailing, so needless to say, we were not happy to hear this. Has anyone heard anything about the possibility of March/April cancellations for Wonder?

    2 days - so anytime after midnight. Technically, they could get you if your travel is from a time zone ahead of EST, but they seem to look for three things: name, date, and NEGATIVE.

    daha699 reacted to twangster in Post COVID Royal Up win question   
    Suites are selling well right now so there may be no actual suites to RoyalUp into unless someone cancels. Bidding windows are driven by other people bidding I think.  A low entry bid could mean few have submitted a bid yet.  Honestly none of us know how the external vendor, "PlusGrade" has the algorithms set.

    The RCCL test is the Binax test. Same thing. RCCL distributes it as a convenience, but it can be ordered from EMed (especially if you want to order the 6-pack).  At this time Royal only accepts the proctored BinaxNow test.

    daha699 reacted to WAAAYTOOO in price of shore excursions and dining packages   
    Sorry, I really don't know the answer to that question as I never even looked at the price for CCBC passes for either of those 2 cruises.  The only CCBC passes that I have purchased were for a Mariner cruise (9-20-21); they were $53.99 PP, but that cruise was subsequently cancelled.

    $224 / 8 = $28 per day.
    For Symphony with Hooked and Playmakers that's not bad for 2021.  In 2018 maybe that went on sale but post-restart I'm not seeing UDP discounts like before.

    Depends on the ship.
    Newer ships with more specialty restaurants will have a higher daily rate for the UDP compared to a ship with fewer specialty restaurants or places like Playmakers where UDP also works.  
    On an older ship someone might see $24 per day while the newest ship or a ship with newer options might be $31 per day.  It's not that $24 is a sale price rather it reflects the venues on board where you can leverage the UDP.

    I got the SY Christmas (12-23-21) and NY sailings (12-31-21) for $199 but that was many weeks back.  I haven't seen it go that low for a long time. $224 seems to be the new "sale" price.
