  1. Are the thermal suites open on ships that have them? We have been on two cruises in the last month on ships without a thermal suite (Adventure and Mariner) and the sauna and steam rooms in the men’s and women’s locker rooms were closed during both cruises.
  2. For anyone cruising this week, how many NFL games were available on the ship on Sunday? Also, is the Washington - New York game available tonight?
  3. Last I heard no one was forced to fly any where. I just stated I wouldn’t fly into or out of Florida right now because there are too many people in this state who are not vaccinated. Personally I would not want to be in a place like a crowded airport that will have a significant number of people who aren’t vaccinated. We had plans this last weekend to fly to see our son, but we cancelled the trip because we didn’t want to risk being at a crowded airport. I know we are fortunate living in Florida that allows us to drive to 5 different ports in 4 hours or less.
  4. I wouldn’t worry about cruises out of Florida being “lax”. We have been on two RCI cruises recently. With the exception of being at home, being on a ship is the safest we have felt. The one thing I would worry about, and this may or may not apply to you, is getting on a plane. Personally there is no way I would fly into or out of a Florida airport right now.
  5. When we were on Mariner a few weeks ago there were crew members constantly reminding passengers to put on a mask when walking around. We saw this mainly on the Promenade and when leaving the Schooner Bar area. It didn’t matter if you had a drink with you or not. By constantly I mean we heard it several times a day, which really wasn’t too often. Most passengers wore masks when they were supposed to be wearing them.
  6. Has the Persian Garden been open on ships that have it?
  7. When we were on Adventure last month crew did exactly what you stated. However, when we were on Mariner last week you placed the cup on the machine and added ice yourself. The only thing the crew did was push the buttons to dispense what you wanted to drink.
  8. You could sit at the bars that were designated vaccinated only. For the bars that were open to everyone you had to sit at a table.
  9. That must be a recent change. When we were on Adventure last month and Mariner last week we didn’t have to upload a photo of our vaccine cards. However, we had to show our vaccine cards to 4 or 5 people at Port Canaveral during embarkation.
  10. We got off Mariner a few days ago. The majority of bars and theaters/lounges were designated vaccinated only and masks weren’t required even if you weren’t drinking or eating. It was better when we were on Adventure last month when you never had to wear a mask on the ship.
  11. I would pick Oasis. It has been recently updated (amped) and has a few more features than Harmony. Plus Oasis has a pool in the Solarium. However, I don’t think you can go wrong picking either ship.
  12. We were notified 3 days before our cruise on Adventure several weeks ago that our minimum bid for a JS was accepted.
  13. Starbucks is included if it is sold at an RCI “shop” like Cafe Promenade. For example, when we were on Adventure a few weeks ago, Starbucks was included in the drink package at Cafe Promenade. However, if the ship has a stand alone Starbucks shop (Navigator, for example), Starbucks is not included in the drink package.
  14. I don’t think it is glaring that she was vaccinated and still got fatally ill. None of the current vaccines available has a 100% efficacy rate.
