  1. Why do you think that. The current administration issued an order that went into effect mid cruise for some people.
  2. Based a sample of one (me 😁), even with a heavy for us number of cruises for 2021, our we only accelerate our path to Diamond+ by a month or two. In order for this to make a big difference in loyalty levels, many people will have to book more cruises in 2021 than they would have booked in 2020 and 2021 combined. While I'm sure Royal would love for that to happen, I have my doubts. Just my (sometimes) humble opinion.
  3. There is a difference between active and passive RFID chips. Based on this: https://www.reasonstocruise.com/wearable-technology/ the current WOW bands use passive so WOW bands can't talk to each other. This describes the difference: https://www.atlasrfidstore.com/rfid-insider/active-rfid-vs-passive-rfid In order to do contact tracing with bands they will have to include active RFID chips and a power source.

  4. We will go Diamond to Diamond Plus, but if our 11 night cruise in January doesn't happen it will be later than we expected pre-pandemic. It is nice to have a chance to make up some of the lost points though.
  5. I forget how wide Ontario is and was thinking he would cross near Toronto. Ok, plan B. If flying is allowed, we can send a bunch of weather balloons and lawn chairs and the family can fly across the border.
  6. Ok, I have to ask. Can you walk across? I can see a group of us setting up a shuttle system to get our Canadian friends to Fl so they can cruise. I will volunteer to take people from the NY/NJ boarder to MD.
  7. Thanks. A very nice outcome after a day of confusion. As a result we should be Diamond+ on our late 2021 cruises. We are looking forward to the extra perks.
  8. Ken, Does the letter you received provide any insight into what Double Points actually means? Thanks. Tom
  9. Thanks. I had to go into incognito mode in Chrome to see it.
  10. The lowest I've seen in the last couple of years for the Deluxe Beverage Package is $39 and I've seen close to $70 so I think $43 is pretty good. If I am on the fence for a beverage package or anything else in cruise planner, I tend to book it knowing I can cancel for a full refund up to 3 days before the cruise. I understand that not everyone can or wants to tie up the money, but it keeps your options open. YMMV Tom
  11. Can you share what you like better about Captain's Club? Thanks.
  12. This is what their website says: 1. Who is eligible for this benefit? SHOW LESS Any shareholder with an eligible reservation holding a minimum of 100 RCL shares at time of sailing. ____________________________________________________________________________ https://www.rclinvestor.com/contact-us/faqs/shareholder-benefit/ I don't know if they check.
