  1. I’m glad that Royal made a decision. I was on the March 21 Majesty out of NOLA. We got a sweetheart of a deal. Even with the 125% FCC I doubt we will find anything close to what we paid during a time where I can cruise. I’m a public school teacher and can’t just take off any time. I’ve been struggling tonight with the disappointment of not traveling. I remembered something I told a student who was sad that the musical program he was the lead in was canceled along with school... It’s ok to be sad or disappointed when you have been looking forward to something for a long time. I’m not sure if anyone else is or has been struggling with their feelings about this shut down, but I wanted to remind us all to give a little grace. We are all in different places- some saved and paid for many many months- some got super sweet deals but in the end, after we cry or rant, there will be future cruises and maybe just maybe this pandemic with plateau and end sooner rather than later. I wish everyone well as we wait for our next chance to be at sea!
  2. We are set to sail out of NOLA on March 21 and got an email stating that they have the Cruise with confidence plan as well as enhanced screening happening at the port. It also said "we can't wait to welcome you aboard". Not saying that they won't cancel or can't cancel but I did take this as we are still planning to send the Majesty out with people on her.
  3. Hubs and I are on the Majesty on March 21. We have an interior room mid ship on deck 4. We have contemplated putting in a bid for an ocean view since it's only $20 a person. Hubs mentioned that we could get a "worse" location and that is his reason for not doing it. I kind of feel like we should. BUT here is my question.... if we bid and are accepted, and then decide to use the 48 hour sail with confidence program- what happens? Would we know that we have been given the upgrade by the 48 hour window? Can you cancel a cruise with a pending bid? I'd love your thoughts on this situation.

  5. I'm thinking that this will mean things like adding some deeper discounts to the "add on" type services. Maybe dropping the prices at CocoCay or Labadee on cabanas so that they stay full. I also wonder if it means suspension of things like the Diamond Happy Hour on all ships or limiting suite lounge amenities too.
  6. I was just saying this!! Or how about public transportation? At least on a Royal ship you see people actively cleaning! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  7. Thank you! After this “don’t cruise” doom and gloom, I needed to hear something positive. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  8. Our local news is reporting an announcement on new procedures for those cruising will be announced tomorrow. The report said this statement is coming from the cruise industry and the federal government. Has anyone else heard about a new procedure coming out? Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  9. I know there used to be a special beach club on Labadee for suite guests. I haven't found anything on CocoCay that is only for suite guests.
  10. On the Majesty there is no "speciality" dinning. The MDR, Windjammer, Johnny Rockets, Sorrentos, Cafe Latitudes, and Compass Deli are the food choices. I know that seems a little crazy with all the options on the larger ships. I'm not exactly sure what "credited" restaurants means but the app is showing MDR with the exact same menu on day 3 and 4. I was hoping that someone had been on the MJ and could clarify if that is really the case.
  11. I wonder if all ships are moving to this format. We sail on Majesty on March 21. Can not wait to pull anchor on our trip! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  12. 14 days until Majesty! It's an empty nest cruise.... yeah us!
  13. yes I did and it shows the same thing. Not a big deal though. I was just surprised to see the same menu 2 days in a row. Another question, I am a Diamond member, can we use our diamond drink credits in the MDR? or do we have to go to a bar?
  14. While we LOVE a balcony and Jr Suite, we are just as excited to book an interior cabin at a great rate so that we can be cruising. Now that said, Alaska is the exception to our interior to cruise philosophy. Alaska needs a balcony so that you can be out in the elements. We also have learned that the dinning packages are very desirable for our tastes. We tend to stay away from the MDR and Windjammer.
  15. The Hubs and I are cruising March 21 on the Majesty. We are planning on sailing. We are both in our mid 40's and in good health. This is our first empty nest cruise and we are both super excited about getting away. Of course if either of us present with fever or the cruise is canceled then we would travel, otherwise this momma needs her vitamin Sea!
