  1. In discussions with current officers and crews onboard various ships throughout the world, it looks like Royal will be doing “soft” opening dates - meaning cruising isn’t going to all resume on May 11th fleetwide. This has also highlighted by a recent article about Carnival, discussing “hot” and “cold” layups of various ships - meaning keeping some ships with full crew and keeping other ships with just the essentials. It will take 3-6 weeks to get “cold” layup ships (essential crew only) to get all crew back, 2-3 week quarantine of crew, and then provisioning. RCL is choosing specific ships to keep “hot” and “cold”: Symphony, Anthem, Navigator, Mariner, Majesty, Explorer - keeping fully operational as possible. Oasis, Allure, Jewel, Brilliance, Voyager, Ovation, and Radiance - keeping essential people only The bet is Europe will be open before US cruising, but I remain skeptical about both to be honest.
  2. I for one have been very concerned about this possibility. I think it is prudent that RCL reduce its final payment to be 60 days prior to sailing. I also think it should be returning cash versus FCC. I will not pay for anymore cruises because frankly the FCC would be worthless should the company go bankrupt. I am also cancelling cruise planner purchases for shore excursions and drink packages until we have a better understanding of how RCL will survive this storm.
  3. Just had my TA reach out. They are definitely available for booking; however, she was advised that there will be imminent changes to European sailings and communication would for forthcoming.

  5. Went to visit Next Cruise desk today. All sailings in Europe now are code red. Has anyone heard any communications on this? Also, Alaska sailings are code red out of Seattle and Vancouver. Can someone validate this for us? Thanks.
  6. The ban is something I am sure was discussed at Saturday’s meeting. Basically told CLIA to have plan in place this week.
  7. I redeemed my 75k points back in November. My final payment is due at the end of this month on a cruise. Does anyone know when the companion fare dollar amount is posted to the reservation? I know it will be up to $1,500. Thank you.
  8. Curious where you have heard that March 4th Sailing? We are booked and have yet to hear anything. Thanks!
  9. Hi All, Does anyone have recent photos of Crown Loft Suites post-amplification? Am curious to see if suites were redone. Thank you.
  10. Hi! We are in a suite on the 11/24 sailing on the Oasis. Has anyone sailing received an email from the Concierge’s yet? We are trying to arrange dining times, but have been told this must be done onboard. Thank you!
  11. Being uploaded to cruising power and rcl website as I type. Prices not that bad. 6/8 nighters out of Port Everglades as expected.
  12. Same boat as you, non pun intended. Booked over the holidays and NYE in a JS connecting to a balcony cabin for the kids. Kids are now placed in GTY and we are stuck with a JS connecting to strangers. RCL not budging since now we are trying what to do for the 2 weeks in terms of getting cabins that connect and also are available for both sailings so we don’t have to move rooms. Shame since we booked this back in January 2018 when this sailing came out. RCL - please take care of your loyal pax who book far ahead and don’t screw us over 1 month before final payment!
