  1. We were on the Anthem this past fall (October, 2019) This was our second cruise on the Anthem. Enjoyed it very much. Ship very nice IMO.
  2. Yes I saw these also On Oasis in February when walking the track
  3. I want to book a group cruise for summer 2022 also, but guess I'm ok with later in the year to see if things have smoothed out any. Sigh.
  4. Would really like to feel comfortable booking a cruise for next year orin 2022, but guess will wait a little longer to see how this virus messes things up.
  5. Hi all, Just want to say I was not expecting a refund anytime soon. Cancelled Feb 2021, b2b cruises March 15th. Been watching for the refund, and yesterday it appeared. Was very happy to say the least. It was a refundable deposit of $1,000 total so was extremely grateful they came through. Especially as we're in our 70's and who knows if will be able to cruise again. Loved all our cruises and will be sad if we won't experience one again, but just seeing and kissing our family, kids, grandkids, my 91 year old mother currently in lockdown, siblings, friends, etc will be the first thing on my agenda. Stay safe and healthy everyone.
  6. Lucky you. I cancelled b2b cruises for Feb 2021 on 3/12 &3/15. First was told would be 3-5 business days. Second time I called, it would be 7 business day. Third time I called said it would be 30 days, but not business days. Will see what happens when that time comes. Fingers crossed. (because we're 70 & 75, pretty much resigned that next year a cruise most likely wouldn't happen for us. ) Who knows. Not my priority right now.
  7. A way to sanitize the menus between use. After ordering my husband & I would sanitize our hands before eating. I could almost see all the germs/bacteria crawling on the menus. Sanitize the salt/pepper shakers (not sure how or just change them frequently) the butter dishes, etc,etc. Lots of places are germy for sure. The buffet tongs are especially one thing that are pretty gross. Guess would just look out for myself and sanitize often.
  8. They are not sending email confirmations I was told because of the volume of rescheduling,etc. Only giving conf # number. I got through by phone in less than a minute, gave conf # immediately . I document the day, time & person I talked to when getting this information. Refund in 3-5 or up to 7 days (business) i assume . I'm not rescheduling for the forseeable future.
  9. I certainly hope this is only temporary. I'm 70, healthy, workout every day, eat healthy. Just looking at the last 2 cruises we took, Oct 2019 & Feb 2020 & the majority of the obese unhealthy looking people were the younger ones, kids & all. Obesity just as bad as chronic illnesses, because that's what it leads to. My rant & my opinion.
  10. Absolutely agrees. Would go in a heartbeat if I had one scheduled. Just got back from a b2b so saving pennies for the next one. Common sense prevails.
  11. These are all hilarious. I too miss Bob's expertise. Hope he enjoys retirement. Unrelated note, we were on Oasis in Feb & had the opportunity to meet Super Mario & see him working in his office. He was very nice & allowed me to take a picture. Saw him at the top tier also. Everyone enjoy your day and your cruise if you are lucky to be on one.
  12. Our b2b on Oasis Feb 9 - Feb 23rd we're at max or close to max capacity. We enjoyed every minute. No illnesses that we were aware of. Did have an evacuation on the first week, but do not know why. Apparently something other than flu, etc.
  13. Not working on my desktop mac. Works on my surface. Does work on my Android (Samsung)
  14. We were on the Oasis Feb 16 & Feb 23 & there were some nights of 2 skating and 2 aqua shows.
  15. We are currently on the Oasis in our second week of b2b. No major issues at all. If the ship has not been to an Asian port or going to one, IMO is no problem. I agree there is just as much chance at the grocery store, restaurants, any public place. They are completely vigilant on board and you just have to be responsible to wash your hands, don't touch your face, etc. Hope you enjoy your cruise, because we sure are.
  16. We are on Oasis currently on deck 8. Not slow elevator service IMO. Elevators busiest right after muster drill and shows in the theatre. My husband has mobility issues so uses the elevators most of the time. I prefer to use the stairs, especially if only going a deck or two.
  17. My husband my only table mate so problem solved. While we engage in conversation with others, never to the depth of viewing their grandchildren. I guess if they insist I will let them hold the phone while I look at their pictures. And yes phones are germ factories so clean mine routinely and don't hand it to strangers. Hope for an uneventful cruise in regard to viruses, but an enjoyable one otherwise.
  18. We board the Oasis Sunday. Have no intention of cancelling. We're vigilant about handwashing & just hope others are too. We will wipe down our airline seat area & the hotel remote - the dirtiest thing in the room, wash after touching door handles, menus, etc. We will sanitize our room & utilize good hand technique throughout cruise . I'm a retired nurse and am extremely vigilant with washing hands, the first line of defense. It is so simple, but people just disregard sometimes. I feel you can contact any germ anywhere, so it's up to me to ensure my safety and watch where others put their germy hands. I am disgusted with women who go to the bathroom and walk out without washing their hands. It makes me gag to think they are going to eat with those germy hands. Ugh. I could go on forever, but this is our plan.
  19. No there is not a door. Don't remember for sure but there may be a curtain to separate it from the rest of the suite.
  20. Master bathroom has a glass enclosed walk in shower & a jacuzzi tub. Master bathroom has double sinks, very spacious, lots of storage, drawers, etc. The whole suite has so many drawers, etc. 1 large closet in main room & 2 closets either side of bed. As you enter the stateroom there is another smaller bathroom. My husband basically claimed that, except to shower, & I had the master bathroom to my self. 🙂 it was a truly lovely suite. Nice large deck which we couldn't use as much as we were in Canada/NE so a little chilly. Would really be nice in Caribbean. Enjoy your suite.
  21. We were in the Owners suite on Anthem in Oct/Nov. Beautiful, spacious room. Loved it.
  22. Received email today from RC to Royal Up on our 2/16 sailing. Will not be bidding. LIke the GS we're in on the 8th deck midship . Our b2b starting on the 9th is in 4 days. Can't wait to board. Maybe they'll give it to us really, really cheap once on board. LOL !! Hope everyone who wants to get their bids. Enjoy whenever you cruise. Can't wait to get out of this winter temps for a couple weeks.
  23. We received two Royal Up emails for feb 9 & now today a Royal Up bid for the 16th. Have no intention to bid on either one. In a GS on the 8th deck midship right where we want to be. Will let someone else have it. Can't wait to board in 4 days.
  24. I will do that. Heard from the concierges so all is well . Chomping at the bit to get on board. !!
  25. Thanks @ Merion-Mom. Appreciate the assistance. Email sent and will await response.
