  1. If anyone is up early and would like to watch Oasis of the Seas pass under the Verrazano Narrows bridge you can watch live streaming on https://www.nyharborwebcam.com/ This should happen about 0630 - 0730 AM eastern Wed Aug 18 give or take. after she passes under the bridge you can watch her progress to her docking on https://www.portnywebcam.com/ This is the first time an Oasis class ship will arrive in NJ/NY area
  2. I would like to know the ship he is sailing on this Saturday out of Florida Is it a test sailing perhaps. I am holding on tight to the ‘they say talks with the CDC are still ongoing’ My B2B is Sept 12 out of Bayonne
  3. Been following this thread and also posts on other social media outlets. I am double Pfizer dose 72 days apart with a B2B on Oasis in Sept. I am mentally exhausted by all the logistics and planning I have had to do re insurance, making sure I was vaccinated, trying to find flights since as you know the land border is not open ( our preference is to drive to Cape Liberty) finding a place locally that will do the PCR test for my flight. Holding off on booking flights and then this potential issue surfaced. I do not understand the difference in wording re accepted vaccines between RCG and Celebrity, I listened yesterday to a webinar where Celebrity rep explicitly made no mention of the duration between vaccines.
  4. A beautiful sunrise greeting Nieuw Statendam as she is in view on www.ftlauderdalebeachcam.com
  5. Arriving a short while ago on PTZtv www.portstmaartenwebcam.com Ship is out of sight at the dock now
  6. Same here with a stop in Bay of Islands and Auckland on the north island.
  7. I chose Radiance because I liked itinerary better. I have been to many places in New Zealand and Radiance out of Brisbane went to ports there I had not seen. Radiance out of Brisbane was the only sailing that went to Great Barrier Reef which I have not seen on my previous Australia visits . Pricing was less For Radiance TP as I did not lift and shift but simply transferred 2 existing bookings to these two Radiance sailings. I have cruised out of Sydney two previous times and dates of Radiance worked better for us to add a visit as my daughter & SIL who live in Sydney.
  8. Watching these developments closely. We as well as you know are on Radiance same sailing in 2022 and I also have one March 31/22 on Radiance to Great Barrier Reef out of Brisbane.
  9. actually on the brochure under ‘Pacific Voyages’ there are couple of 17 night sailings to Honolulu on Radiance out of Brisbane
  10. I will. 😀 We are both very conscious of the chair hogging thing.
  11. Spent the day in one today On Oasis. We grabbed it about 9:30 am First come first serve. It was port day in Labadee but we chose to stay on ship We are B2B and are at Labadee next week so will get off then. my husband stayed longer than I and when he left he had two couples in negotiations as to who would get the cabana 🙂 he should have said ‘best offer’ gets it 😂
  12. John I assume the charters are because of the Super Bowl. Will the ships sail out of port or stay and be used as accommodations for VIP etc?
  13. My travel agent did some calls yesterday. The 'downgrade' would be to an oceanview balcony not a Boardwalk/Central park as I was wondering. There are plenty of oceanview balconies available on both of my sailings that are impacted Feb 23 & March 1.. In our case we are B2B and when we booked a year ago the second person was 50% off and we did receive a decent senior discount on both sailings. The amount of $$$ we would be refunded is not that high and if we took them up on the 'offer' RCI would get away rather inexpensively for their error at least for us. These sailings were also on the Going Going Gone sale but I cannot confirm if JS were offered. However as of now there are NO same oceanview balconies on both sailings. 😞
  14. Yes I was Offered Royal Up for the Feb 23 sailing. It came on Dec 26. three sailings are oversold Feb 16, Feb 23 and March 1
  15. Agree it is an offer. We have done the numbers for the benefits in refund/OBC as we are B2B. Very interesting for us especially since they are protecting our double points. We have til Jan 31 to submit the survey. I would like to have the same oceanview balcony if at all possible. Once you check out the survey in the email to show your interest this last line concerns me. Phone call will be in order first before I hit submit. . "By submitting this information, you're confirming that you're interested in changing your Junior Suite to a standard balcony stateroom. Once you hit submit, all changes are final."
  16. I have checked for my two sailings Feb 23 & March 1 and there are no suites higher than JS available 😞
  17. I am also on March 1 sailing and the one before Feb 23 and the offer is for both my sailings
  18. it is not on website yet. I booked through travel agent and he has access. They may be able to give you pricing or book by calling RCI
  19. Gotcha thanks for clarification John Noted 🙂
