Looking forward to this one.  Booked as soon as it came on the market. As soon as we had booked flights they went up about 2-300%! Amazing!

Same! I managed to catch a nice price drop and switch to United a few weeks ago though so I'm pretty happy.

We are tentatively booked on this cruise. We have reserved a hotel before and after in Barbados. (Hope CDC will drop the Covid test requirement for reentering the US by then. We are vaccinated.)

We have reserved the refundable flights on Royal Caribbean' s air which looks to save us some money.

Exciting itinerary: We are really looking forward to visiting new ports!  Trinidad and Tobago should be very interesting; and we especially want to visit Dominica. The pictures look like Hawaii, so beautiful!!

A few observations:

1).  The refundable upcharge is miniscule.  (less than $100).

2).  The price for the 14 day (early 2022) was almost exactly the same as this 7 day (the day they released these Grandeur sailings).

3).  This is a pretty good ship for combining Drinking and Dancing ... The Centrum has room for both.

51 days to go.  Still very little information about this cruise.  With five of the seven stops currently listed by the State Dept. as level 4 - Do Not Travel, It's tough to research tours and things to do on each island.  I'm sure some of the independent vendors would love some tourist dollars but it's tough to commit with so little to go by.  Are we at the point 'Heads we sail, tails we don't'?

Matt and Brandon, are you guys still planning on going on this cruise or have you cancelled?  I had heard from someone who was also booked on this, but they have since cancelled.  I am still scheduled, but I haven't booked flights yet.  I am scheduled to go with my aunt, but the price of the tickets from the airport closest to her house are now $766 per person.  The flight down isn't bad on the day before the cruise with only one stop and a flight from 5 AM to 2 PM.  However, the return flight leaves Barbados around 6 PM and makes 2 stops and doesn't get us back until 11 AM the next day.  With this 17 hour flight, I am considering cancelling this cruise to get the future cruise credit.  I could use that $766 on excursions for my back 2 back on Allure next April.  With the ability to cancel within 48 hours, I don't think I have to decide anything right away.

Still cant check in, I'm flying from the UK and it seems a minefield of misinformation.

 

anyone else still sailing ?!

As of now, I am still planning on sailing.  But, I haven't booked flights yet.  The Barbados testing requirements may be an issue for me.  I am from a small town and I am having trouble finding a location that will do the test that Barbados requires.  I will have to place a few calls to see what I can do.  My plan was to fly from North Carolina on Saturday, stay at the Courtyard by Marriott in Barbados for one night and then head to the ship the next day.

Sorry for the delayed response.  We cancelled and booked Silhouette over on Celebrity.  Leaves Dec 3 from Ft Lauderdale for 10 nights.  Visits St Maarten, St Lucia, St Kitts, Barbados and Antigua.
