 Did RC just open these rooms up for booking?

I don't think anyone knows the answer to this question but my guess is the answer is "no".  I cannot see Royal offering up any new cabins with all of the COVID issues that are going on.  I thought I had read that they had closed off all cruises to new bookings for the next few weeks.  Not sure that went as far out as 1-30-22 though.

We were originally booked on this cruise (OA 1-30-22) but cancelled (along with 2 other Oasis January sailings) a few weeks back.  As far as I know, our suite (Star Loft) never came back on the market.  I figured they were going to just hold it for RoyalUp.  Who knows ?

I can see being disappointed.  I can NOT see being upset.  This isn't 2019, and things have changed dramatically even in the past 10 days.

I agree. While many folks I know are testing positive for Omicron where I live (West Tennessee), nobody who is jabbed up is being hospitalized or dying from this variant. 

There are many positive signs that this virus is becoming endemic. As Matt indicated in today's blog update, the situation on sailings this past week were all very manageable.

What I fear most is the at home antigen test results on 12/29 😱

Agree  We're flying to Tampa at 7:15 am on Jan 2 and boarding on Jan 3 at 1:30 (Brilliance). I plan to test on Jan 1 so we know we're cleared before leaving home. After an unsuccessful search for a local testing site that will be open on New Year's Day, I ordered RCL's at home kits. We're completely vaccinated and boostered, but I know several people who got breakthrough COVID. Three family members will be at home between Christmas and New Year's, but 1 works in retail and 1 in a restaurant. They're the ones I worry about getting exposed before we leave.

We work in retail as well, so I completely understand the tension there and potential for infection breakout.  I am wishing you good results and a happy cruise.  

We can take the Proctored test at midnight so registers as 2 days before our cruise (Anthem 12/31).  We took at home non proctored tests this morning and got negative result good news, so if all holds constant for the next 15 hours or so then we will be good to go!
