It doesn't make sense to book inaugerals anymore with Royal it seems until you are sure it WILL be the inaugural ... especially if you have to fly to port.

I hope they do something really nice for people who can't change their travel date and are disappointed about missing an inaugural cruise.

Are you saying that STX, the ship yard, is having problems? RCI already has Allure's financing in place. What is your point?

Wow, sounds like somebody has a chip on their shoulder or something. We booked Oasis/Allure inaugurals simply because we thought it would be exciting to be on the first full sailing of such an innovative new ship, and on Oasis it was. We anticipate the same on Allure. "Status" had nothing to do with it.

Well a little birdie in the know told me that Falmouth is still more than a year away from being ready so both Oasis and Allure will continue going to Costa Maya. Of course when will RCI tell everyone this?

Haven't changed yet, but we will! I just got the email from RCCL, literally about 5 minutes ago, saying the date has officially changed.

They are offering up to $100 reimbursement to cover airline change fees, and booked pax have til 2/26 to switch to 12/5 and keep their same cabin.

Hi Meg

Is that $100 per person ? And is that only if you have flights already booked?

ummm weird how RCCL UK offering £100 per person which would work out around $160 per person
