  1. CocoCay Closure & Tropical Storm Dorian Update August 28, 2019 at 01:00 PM EST We'll share our next updates at 06:00 PM EST. We've been closely monitoring Tropical Storm Dorian, as it enters the Caribbean. Based on current projections of the storm’s path, we decided to close CocoCay on Wednesday, August 28th, 2019, and it will reopen on Wednesday, September 4th, 2019. Our CocoCay Team is made up of over 400 Bahamian locals on the island and it’s important that they evacuate to care for their families and secure their homes, as soon as possible. We evaluated all options, and this is the best decision, as there is no room for error when it comes to the safety and security of our guests, crew, and employees. This is our top priority. As a result of the CocoCay closure, guests that pre-purchased Royal Caribbean International shore excursions for CocoCay will receive a refund to their onboard expense account in the form of a credit. If guests’ onboard spend does not reach this amount, the remaining balance will be refunded to their credit card on file. The following sailings are impacted: Navigator 8/26/19 Adjusted Sailing DATES DAY PORT REVISED PORT 8/26 Monday Miami, Florida Miami, Florida 8/27 Tuesday Nassau, Bahamas Nassau, Bahamas 8/28 Wednesday CocoCay Nassau, Bahamas 8/29 Thursday Cruising Cruising 8/30 Friday Miami, Florida Miami, Florida Mariner 8/26/19 Adjusted Sailing DATES DAY PORT REVISED PORT 8/26 Monday Orlando (Port Canaveral), Florida Orlando (Port Canaveral), Florida 8/27 Tuesday Cruising Cruising 8/28 Wednesday Nassau, Bahamas Nassau, Bahamas 8/29 Thursday CocoCay Nassau, Bahamas 8/30 Friday Orlando (Port Canaveral), Florida Orlando (Port Canaveral), Florida Empress 8/24/19 Adjusted Sailing We’ll sail to Cozumel, Mexico, as planned, but now, we’ll stay there overnight.

So, we’re going to wait a bit more to evaluate the new data, which we’ll receive this afternoon. Then, we’ll confirm alternate ports and share your final itinerary changes with you by 3 PM on Thursday, August 29th, or sooner. HARMONY 8/25/19 & SYMPHONY 8/31/19 While these itineraries were never sailing to CocoCay, these itineraries may be impacted by Tropical Storm Dorian, as we want to steer clear of any adverse weather. We are sorry for this last-minute change and thank you for your understanding and cooperation during this unusual and unfortunate circumstance.
  2. We are scheduled to be on the Summit sailing Sept 8th. I have severe asthma. If they are just drying the carpets and leaving the old carpet down, I am concerned about what it will do to those of us that are air sensitive.
  3. Really would like to see 3 elevator areas. Front, Mid Ship and Aft. It would make all of the cabins at the aft of the ship more desirable. An Elite only lounge would be nice. There are so many of us now that we could fill an entire lounge.
  4. When we tried to make reservations on the Infinity last month (Select Dining), we were told that they no longer take reservations. Also, we have requested a specific table in the past and we were told that they don't do THAT anymore either... We are Elite and being able to reserve a time and a table made the dining much better, in our opinion. We will be on the Summit in September.....
  5. Just sailed the Infinity on a trans Atlantic last month. You might gain info reading the reviews on Cruise Critic. We love to cruise and go often - but won't be going on the Infinity. That decision was based on the quality of the food and the indifference shown by many of the officers and the staff.
  6. Hope this resolves. We have 4 weeks before we sail Trans-Atlantic and need the connection to work as promised.
