  3. When I started this thread, I never expected it would last this long and have so many responses.😮
  4. Mailed mine in on September 1st, it was received on September 3rd, check cashed on September 8th. Let the waiting begin.🙄
  5. Just heard from a friend that's the Head Waiter in Chops Grille on Freedom, that he has been asked to submit his documents and that he would hear soon about a return date soon.
  6. Anyone know where passports are actually processed? I'm mailing an application to Irving, TX, and we live in Dallas (which is minutes from Irving, TX). How is the processing timeline these days? Weeks? Months?
  7. Thank you for sharing the video and pics. We booked one of these staterooms for a B2B on Freedom in December 2021. We visit the spa and solarium frequently, so the location is ideal. Did you feel much motion?
  8. Looking for opinions or pictures of the "new" Junior Suites on Deck 11 on Freedom Class ships (Freedom & Independence).
  9. I've won $250+ playing Bingo twice I've won $1600 on a Slot Machine I've won the Blackjack Tournament 4 times (prizes $150 to $500) I've won free dinner at Chops Grille at a special Trivia competition I've won many bottles, key chains, corkscrews, and other RCCL goodies at the Meet & Mingle raffles And.... I won a free 7 to 10 cruise about 10 years ago after filling out a survey for Royal Caribbean
  10. Jewel of the Seas, November 2010, sailing to Southern Caribbean, Columbia, Costa Rica, Panama, and Grand Cayman with my family and friends from England. My brother joined us as a surprise for my Dad. We were sitting on the pool deck getting ready to do a champagne toast after boarding, and my brother walked up and asked if he could join us. My Dad's reaction was priceless.🥰😍🤩
  11. If Royal Requires A Covid-19 Vaccine Before Cruising Will You Get It???
