  1. We're on for June 2021. If masks become mandatory, we're canceling permanently as well. No one in their right minds after spending a fortune as it is on a cruise wants to wear a mask.
  2. Ever since our first aft balcony - we always dive for those first. Very little motion out aft, just some warped shaft harmonic rumbling, but awesome.
  3. First cruise, Grandeur, 2004. Seeing DW's face light up when she saw the flowers from me in our first cabin, an inside. At the midnight buffet, wanted to try one of the chocolate covered strawberries, Jen never had one before, watched the woman in front of us take the last six of them for herself....head waiter took note, next night at dinner, brought the table a platter of them....remembering the wonderful lit up ice sculptures and watermelon carvings, the port visits we had in the Caribbean....magic. -
  4. A great ship with a story. I cannot confirm this, but I heard that her hull is still intact in some shipyard after the fire took place in 1966. She was sold and then became the Hanseatic seen here burning.
  5. In our case, after our Lift & shift to a cruise next year, all of our excursions, the Chef's Table, the Taste of Royal, all that gets refunded within 45 days. Just not sure if that's 45 business days or includes weekends.
  6. When we talk about "refund days" does that include weekends, or is it, for example, 60 business days?
  7. Hope this doesn't happen to us. We did a lift&shift to a cruise next summer. Was told that everything just shifts. We would just have to pay an additional $43 in port fees & taxes. Was also told to ignore the first statement and to wait two weeks for the correct statement. Was also assured there's no down payment or final anything except the aforementioned port taxes and fees. So, tomorrow we are supposed to see the "final" statement and in 45 days get refunded the money we paid into the original cruise excursions and amenities we also paid for.
  8. Thing on that was, "HIPPA" should be "HIPPA" and cheers to the amazingly brilliant idea on the "government agents" thing....
  9. It'll be a constant monitoring and policing NIGHTMARE....
  10. I'm not against mask wearing, but I see potential for this being a legal disaster, HIPAA violations where someone asks for specific reasons they can't wear one, etc. There's this card floating around online, a vague attempt trying to make it appear official, when it isn't...and, if you catch the error in it, say what it is, LOL
  11. Probably right. This will end up being a huge legal mess though for RCL and they'll lose a LOT of business over it.
  12. How would RCL handle it if someone presents them with a documented medical condition where they can't wear one? There are people who cannot wear masks.
  13. For real. If anyone needs emotional support from an animal, they should stay at home in the house with their pet.
  14. Funniest bit about this thread is reading all of you "experts" argue about it😁 cheers, chill out, have a great weekend, and don't lose any sleep over this "virus" that is soooo ten minutes ago.
