    Agree with both. 
    I also did the chill cabana for a February 2021 cruise.  We enjoy it so much (empty nesters) that we would hate to wait and miss out on the high demand item if the cruise doesn't get canceled.

    I've already had four cancelled cruises this year and I've always up till this point kept on throwing money into the cruise planner haha... I'm not doing that anymore as constantly going thru the cycle of Dispersal and purchases each time becomes tedious and at this point I'm betting most sales in there are just placeholders for additional funds...because with no end date to this suspension honestly except the dangling carrot for Oct 1... which many are doubtful about..further compounded by the Wonder of the Seas article where it was mentioned
    “We look forward to the arrival of Wonder of the Seas after the epidemic has been brought under control," the company said.
    Well first off... in no way is this epidemic under control in the US and theres not even a remote possibility at this point of anything being under control by Oct 1 so in a sense by continuing to throw money into sales in the cruise planner we are continuing our role as RCL unsecured creditors 🙂
     
    there is and always will be sales. This much is certain so it's a personal choice. I for one am not biting the carrot ... four times already so no fifth. If by some sheer chance my sailing for Nov does go ahead I'll possibly do some last minute purchases and maybe even for my back up FEB 2021 but short of cruise taxes I'm opting to no longer throw money into the cruise planner and have to deal with more credit refunds again later. Managing this has literally become a full time job outside of my day job 🙂

    Thank you both. Sometimes it helps just to hear opinions. 🙂
    Ok...we ended up purchasing it as it is a good price for the waterpark at a busy time.  If the cruise is cancelled and it takes time for a refund, not a huge deal (as long as the refund comes).  I do find that Black Friday can be hit and miss.  Sometimes there are good deals, but not necessarily for the things that you want.  So far we are at 0/4 for getting to the new and improved CoCo Cay.  Hopefully one of these times...lol.
    Drink package is on sale too ($70 CAD instead of $90)....so it's tempting...but with kids, I still can't see us drinking enough to make it worthwhile (and that is putting a lot more money out than 4 waterpark passes)

    Just logged in to see if they assigned us a room yet for our Spring break cruise next year and noticed a lot of price drops on the cruise planner. Thrill water park pass was down to $52.99. Has been hoovering around $100. It never dropped below $79 for our canceled June or August cruises. The drink packaged dropped from $71 to to $53. For our August cruise I got it for $49. so going to hold out a little. The 100 prints or 100 digital photo package is down to $134. It was $149 for our August cruise.

    Take the information as you will. This is the most up to date that I could find. Let's hope that things get better soon. We can't cruise if there is nowhere to go.

    Think they have a steeper hill to climb.  Had some major issues with their Princess and HAL fleet pre-shutdown.  Also have been under a consent agreement for environmental issues (illegal dumping).  Think that's why RCL and NCL held hands on the new health protocols.   Not a wide bridge to cross on past performance.  Just a guess.

    Thank you for your post. It has made my day! I think being part of the TROPICAL PARTY is great idea! Lots of umbrella drinks, the sound of the ocean and laughter, and the smell of sunscreen (cause skin cancer sucks).
