This is the official “Unofficial GC” announcement!

Freshly Amped Allure 03/14/2021

7 of us in the RCBlog community have already booked this one!  More are currently asking for permission lol.

Who’s going to YOLO and Book It next? 

@tiny260 just told me that as of yesterday, MEI already has a group set up for this sailing to get possible group rates 🙂

 

uggh so tempting, we are planning a cruise with friends for the end of 2021 and we already have a sailing for April of 2021.  Plus its around St Paddy's Day and our daughter is involved with Irish dancing.  Not sure we can take her away or leave during such a big weekend for her.  I would love to celebrate Paddy's Day on a cruise though!

I can't even get pricing info right now, about 200 people are looking at this trip. Waiting on Michelle for more info.

I wish - that's right in the thick of tax season.  But tune into my scopes May 2020 when I'm on Allure three weeks after her amp!

Doh...we actually considered this cruise but went with Harmony instead as we haven't been on that one yet. Would have been neat though!

Darn it! 😎 

We’re re-booked on Symphony now (4/24/21) with our friends since RC cancelled the Harmony cruises... one of these days my wife and I would really love to meet you all on one of these cruises!

It would be very interesting to compare the prices before the unofficial announcement and after  🙂 

Allure hasn't had her announcement yet.  I'm curious too how they will change.  We booked Oasis also to sail her three weeks after her amp and got an amazing ocean view balcony guarantee rate, and this was right after they made her announcement.  I full expect to be in the last room allllll the way aft (which we have actually had before, lol) or a blocked view but that's okay.  We don't really plan to be in our cabin other than to sleep & shower!

I didn't find that the prices changed too drastically after the announcement for Oasis.  I had booked long before the details were released for the first sailing immediately after the AMP.  The prices have gone up since, but they seem to be trending similarly to another Oasis class sailing that I have and I didn't see a spike because the details were released for the AMP.  It's the next season release after the AMP where you will notice the prices go up across the board -- at least that's what I saw for Mariner and Navigator.

Between xbox and bumper cards, never going to get my kids to leave the sea plex (and dh too on computer game side)

I try to stay positive usually but going to be realistic here for a bit. While the Seaplex is a great venue, the lines for the bumper cars are long and they don’t run them all day long. There are only 3-4 XBox stations and they are usually packed full of kids. Just let your kids know to be realistic about it and how often they might get to use those things. That is one of the main reasons why we chose to stay on board most of this cruise, so our girls could utilize that space more.

Thanks for the tip!  I know to line up early...and yeah, we're going March break so crowded x10.  Will definitely warn them.  We have a Nassau day on our cruise, which means ship day for us.  Guess it just depends on what they run at the Sea Plex at the time.

Btw...are you liking the ship a bit more in the warmer weather?

The weather is great this time! We have made good use of our balcony.  No parkas needed lol. I still am not a fan of Quantum class. The things that I did not care for last March still bother me this time around.

Will have to agree with you on this one ... We prefer the Oasis class much better.  But, don't get me wrong - being on ANY ship is always a good thing - ha

Our kids had a blast at the sea plex, mainly hanging out with new found friends.  Made for some *cough* adult casino time *cough*

Lol...good you didn't have to pull out the parkas.  I hear Quantum isn't for everyone so can understand.  I think we'll enjoy it but will be interesting to see where it rates compared to others. (and will have to make sure the $18 drink package doesn't bias the trip...haha).

And great you had a chance to try it again, and you must still be having a blast with the Royal blog group!  So fun following along on here and periscopes.

^^^This is the best part! 

I have always known that the RCBlog community is fantastic and in person they are nothing short of that! 

Hoping for more of these group cruises in the near future...like maybe Allure 03/14/21...?

@Matt I have already rounded up quite a few for you already!

One day I'm hoping to be able to cruise with the RCBlog community on a GC  (I'll have to ask my #Genie if @Lovetocruise2002 will be allowed back into the suites)  haha
