  1. Sooooo, do people now need to wear a badge, pin, sticker stating they’ve been vaccinated so everyone doesn’t flip out and play mask police. Asking for a friend. Erika
  2. We love aft balconies, assuming they are in a good location. We always check what is above and below. Looking at the deck plans, it looks like it’s below other aft cabins, which is good. But is above the Shall We Dance lounge. If you are night owls and don’t mind possible noise, I say go for it. But if you are an early bird and/or a light sleeper, this may not be your best choice.

  3. Interesting. I think this might answer what I’ve been wondering, IF they require tours only through the ship, would they let you off the ship say to shop. Based on that, it sounds like ‘self exploration’ would not be allowed. Bummer for the guests and the businesses that won’t have income Erika
  4. Maybe I misunderstood, but he kept talking about the color status. I can understand the quarantining of new crew for 2 weeks (but at the same point, they don’t plan to do that with guests and if everyone is vaccinated.. just saying). But the other items make no sense unless there is a code red outbreak. The crew need downtime and to be able not to be locked up like a prisoner. Just saying.... I just wish the cdc would get over this issue as personally, I still say, safer on the ship if everyone has to prove having to be vaccinated versus a plane where no one has to.
  5. Ok, so the cdc says it’s now safe for people that are vaccinated to fly. Great. Who at the airport is confirming that travelers are vaccinated? RCI is stating that only vaccinated people and crew can be on a ship when cruising resumes (and negative tested minors). Who feels safer at this point on a ship vs a plane? Just curious. Erika
  6. We FINALLY made d+ and we’re looking forward to getting our towels. I don’t see how a fresh new towel could be a hazard. The room steward should be able to leave that (and bottles of water) when they prep the room. And anyone want to bet, if you ‘bought’ bottles of water, they would be delivered to the room? SO much safer then ‘leaving’ free bottles of water. Just saying....... Erika
  7. We did 8586 on Grandeur and loved it so much we booked it again for February 2022. The spa is a quiet place to be under. And an aft view is awesome Erika
  8. I’m hoping the medical emergency is more a precautionary situation and nothing major. But I have to state, it was nice to see a live on ship type report for a change. It has been way to long. Don’t flame me, I’m not cheering the medical emergency. Erika
  9. Correction. I JUST got the email tooo. Here’s hoping they are seriously considering moving forward with cruising soon. Wonder if there are ‘right’ answers. Lol Erika
  10. We booked Grandeur for Feb 2022 recently as well. No survey. Erika
  11. Got my email today. To bad, once again they f’d up and put my father’s name on it. So now I have to wait till they reissue it. Tell me how they know who I am when I book or get on the ship, but for some reason they keep thinking I’m my father. I never sailed when I lived with my parents or before I was married. Frustrating. Once again, if I had first dealt with their ITfolks before I sailed, I probably wouldn’t have. Erika
  12. Just called c&a and they said our FCC was issued on the 12th. Now just hoping my TA has power. thanx all Erika
  13. For those of you that got your FCCs for your March sailings, did you use a TA? thanx, Erika
  14. Interesting. I was just coming to find out about the FCC. We were notified on January 12th and by the next week had our TA put in a reservation to go to this. Supposedly RCI will hold that sailing/cabin/price until February 26. But like ya’ll said, the website says February 12. Then it still says 45 days. Probably why RCI said February 26:, which is 45 days. Hoping for sooner. I want to lock in that other reservation. Following Erika
  15. I don’t see those options on RCI site, not my TA site. As an FYI, we were in Columbia in March and Loved it!!! Last full, safest, healthiest cruise of 2020. Erika
