We were in the same ballpark on the 9/20 sailing of Freedom for the 4 nighter. I remember hearing somewhere that we were right around 1,100 (but I had the drink package and my memory is the single point of failure in that process! 🙂)  and the crew was actually around 1,400 I think. 

We're hearing that our upcoming Freedom sailing (10/8 - 10/11) is going to be over 3000...  makes sense for a 3-night weekend jaunt.

I'm curious if there's a target date for full capacity cruises to resume?  Do we think by spring it will be like old times?  Or are they taking it more slowly?

I am sure there is a lot of accounting behind some of the capacities. I do think they are going to increase capacities slowly because RCI would not want a high number of cases on board as it would discourage future cruisers. I also do think that there is lower demands and some travelers I know are still waiting for there to be consistent protocols before they book a cruise. Unfortunately with the times we live in its hard for RCI not change or adapt their protocols with what is going on. I have not been on any reduced capacity cruises yet, but I have heard its been great.

That's less than Sept 12 selling, I read it 2400. Well about 2300 because of people turned away for lack of covid test.

After all this time and email reminders... 

So many people still travel to the port all packed and without covid test? 🤣

@Vlad Yes, lots of people think just because they are vaxxed they don't need a test. I don't understand people who show up places without even the most basic bit of research. 

From my experience, best is CVS. They have this Minute Clinic. You schedule 2 weeks in advance, any time. Received results in record time. Goes into my chart app.

@travelerpete Nope, they release the capacity on the ship only. There isn't a way to be approximate anyways as people can be turned away at port. There may be cancellations all the way up to sailing, which is why they don't give a guest count until way after sail away. They didn't even do this before Covid.

Thanks - This is my first RC - I've always gone on NCL - I've been looking forward to Oasis for years but stayed away because it was so big - can't wait to see what it's like 🙂 Excited only a few days away!!!

1231 sailing on Freeeom this week (4-nighter) per the Diamond concierge.  Ship capacity 4500.  

it's also the middle of the work week, in the middle of Hurricane season, but I thought it would be a leeeetle bit busier.  

4 nighter on Freedom, Sept 27th, 1130 onboard

Does anyone know if RCCL adjusts the number of crew members needed for each sailing based on number of booked passengers?

They can't really.  Crew visas don't allow them to get off the ship and stay on land so crew onboard are onboard regardless how many guests there are one week to the next.  

They are taking cabin attendants from closed sections and tasking them with cleaning duties elsewhere like constantly wiping down railings and cleaning tables in the WJ between guests.  So when a cabin attendant isn't being a cabin attendant when his or her section is closed they find other things for them to do.

Just spent 5 days on Anthem with 1699 other passengers, heaven 🙂

 

That's amazing! I'm sailing on Anthem in November. Can you please tell me what it was like up on the pool deck? The only other time I sailed on her it was packed so I never ended up hanging out there 😞
Was there enough chairs? Did it feel crowded up there?

As it was a UK cruise in October there were plenty of available loungers on the pool deck 😉, the inside pool and solarium were busier but we always found a couple of loungers. Nowhere on the ship felt crowded, not even We Will Rock You, though they did perform it twice.
