  1. Sorry to hear your vacation was abruptly ended. I am glad you both received the medical attention you needed. As other have stated, travel insurance (medical and non-medical coverage) is something to look into on your next vacation. If you used a credit card to pay for the entire cruise, I would call them to see if you have any coverage.
  2. It is common practice to provide proof of cancellation from the travel supplier (cruise line, airline, hotel, etc) what submitting a travel insurance claim. It will show if there were any refunds (cash, credit) provided by the travel supplier to ensure you have not already been indemnified. I was able to get a proof of cancellation letter from Royal Caribbean. It did take a long time (6 weeks). It was in the beginning of the pandemic.
  3. ArriveCan app set up is an annoyance. I find it to be similar annoyance as entering your passport and proof of vaccination info to check-in.
  4. At the land border, the CBSA agent will ask the same questions that are on the ArriveCan app and you will have to present proof of vaccination. They may send you to secondary inspection to complete that just to not hold up the general line.
  5. I have booked both in USD and CAD. The refund on the Cruise Planner is exactly what was paid. But whenever I book the cruise in USD, the Cruise Planner is in USD. Exchange rates and Credit card Foreign Transaction Fees will apply on the credit card statement.
  6. Have you tried contacting pharmacies near you and asking if they provide Rapid Antigen Tests for Travel?
  7. My TA was able to call Royal and apply my FCC to a Feb 2023 sailing. It's worth a try. YMMV
  8. I was told we are not able to book ships currently on their inaugural season. So may have to wait for 2023 Annual Tier Comp.
  9. Depending on play, you will also receive cruise offers on select sailings/dates throughout the status year. I just wish these offers includes taxes & fees. I know MSC casino cruise offer program does cover them.
  10. I used them as our pre-cruise testing in February. Very simple process. Book appointment online. Results in 20 minutes.
  11. Prior to switching between devices, enter logoff.com on the internet browser. Then on the device you want to access the internet, connect to the ship's wifi and enter logon.com on the internet browser. You are then prompt to enter your VOOM credentials.
  12. If your sailing is a "One-way Cruise from Barcelona, Spain" https://www.royalcaribbean.com/faq/questions/will-i-have-to-take-a-test-before-i-cruise
  13. Speak to a manager/supervisor. You may have better luck speaking to the casino host about your exprience with your Signature tier status. Give them a chance to make it right within reason. With increased capacity since the restart, it is reasonable to arrive earlier to a show even with reservations. Especially to shows at Studio B and Aqua Theatre where seats are very limited. Enjoy the rest of your cruise!
  14. Was on Oasis in February. They only had two traditional craps tables onboard. Only one of open most likely due to reduced capacity at the time.
  15. You can take the test on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday prior to boarding. Many recommend doing proctored covid tests https://www.emed.com/products/covid-at-home-testkit-six-pack
  16. Specialty restaurants are casual/smart casual.
  17. The space on the Boardwalk where they had donuts/coffee in the morning is now used for Playmakers arcade games and fooseball tables on Symphony and Oasis.
  18. Ultimate Dining Package allows $20 credit at Playmakers and $35 credit (+$10 surcharge for Hibachi) at Izumi each visit
  19. Once onboard, speak to the casino host. They will let you know the schedules on when they run the poker tournaments.
  20. They have sit & go tournaments throughout the sailing. Sometimes they put it on the Cruise Compass and sometimes the host will announce it at the casino. Good luck and have fun!
  21. Yes. Once onboard, you can check the themes throughout the sailing at the Windjammer Marketplace on the Royal app under Dining - Restaurants.
  22. We like Caribbean night at WJ for the oxtail and goat curry
  23. +1 for Portside BBQ. My wife and I split the 3 meat combo for lunch and each had their spiked iced tea. We were so full afterwards! We skipped MDR that night and had later dinner at the Windjammer buffet right before they closed.
