  1. Luckily the video posted shows a child getting a very mild nasal swab. Only the tip of the swab was inserted. I’m going to keep my eyes open for more videos in the months to come…
  2. Oh that’s excellent and super helpful! That was barely anything!!! Thank you 😊
  3. My understanding was the the initial PCR test was the nasal swab and the mid-cruise antigen test was the saliva test? Regardless, it’s good to know they are at least less invasive now. Though I guess that’s dependent on the person.
  4. We’re cruising in November also, so hopefully things will be different then.
  5. Can anyone who has sailed from Florida recently with children under 12 confirm what type of testing they are doing for the kids? Is it the nose or mouth swab? I’ve only had the invasive nose swab and am not sure my daughter could handle that one, lol.
  6. So, finally got my new cabin assignment. Of course, now they are telling me that ALL aft balconies on Independence are for 3-4 person capacity. So, with only two of us, we cannot get an aft balcony. Third one I have had to give up with all these changes.
  7. A perfect example of why you should keep trying:) I called three times trying to do the same and was told I couldn't.
  8. I wouldn’t hold your breath. Now they’re telling me that all the room re-assignments won’t be done until mid-October. But don’t worry. Today is still the last day those of us with non-refundable deposits can get a full refund🙄.
  9. This is ridiculous. Now they’re telling me room re-assignments won’t be complete until mid-October, but today is still the last day I can get a full refund (non-refundable deposit). How does that make sense?
  10. Same here. Interesting how they're giving aft balconies to passengers who did not originally have them. Does Independence maybe not have the hump balconies? I'm not sure, but it doesn't make a lot of sense. I am just bracing for losing my aft. It was one of the reasons we booked Brilliance (which was in place of our August 2020 on Navigator that was cancelled). At least Independence is a bigger ship...
  11. Thank you both. We are in an aft balcony on Brilliance, but I'm reading that the aft balconies are technically a different category on Independence, so I anticipate losing it, which I am not happy about. However, we also got a good price on this one, so it's hard to justify cancelling...
  12. I have been trying to follow the threads re: all the Summer 2021 changes, but have yet to see anyone post that they have received their new confirmation/room assignment. The deadline to cancel for a full refund is tomorrow, which is when they claimed they would have the info to us (I was switched from Brilliance to Independence). Has anyone gotten their’s?
  13. This is the closest to my question I could find, so I hope you don’t mind me asking for further clarification, OP. Our sailing is 11-19-20 (non refundable deposit). There are 4 of us. So if I opt for a FCC prior to final payment, each of us would get $250 FCC per person, correct? When does that need to be used by? TY!
  14. Sounds like they switched you to the early seating for traditional dining. My Time Dining definitely didn’t start until 6:45 on Oasis. Glad it worked out for you though!
