  1. Ovation categorizes some on deck 7 as obstructed (they are really not), but on any Q class there should not be any above deck 6.
  2. It depends on your definition of total, but to the average person, no.
  3. It varies by ship and length of cruise, but figure somewhere around $25+ pppd.
  4. Maybe (unlikely to leave from LA), but the timing is off - it's usually late April and late Sept.
  5. I wouldn't bother. Biker, who is puzzled by anyone booking star class being worried about a final payment date.
  6. Just think for a minute - if that was really true, do you think anyone would ever sail them?
  7. But those are likely ship/date specific, not some fleetwide "sale" RCI would announce.
  8. I assume Wonder's AIS transponder still needs some adjusting:
  9. It looks like she's on the way now - left Port Klang a couple of days ago.
  10. Here are all the cruise destinations in the region currently at level 4: Antigua and Barbuda Aruba The Bahamas Belize Bermuda British Virgin Islands Curacao Jamaica Puerto Rico Panama St. Kitts and Nevis St. Lucia St. Maarten/St. Martin U.S. Virgin Islands CDC Recommends to Avoid Travel to Another Two Cruise Destinations (cruisehive.com)
  11. That's about as subjective as the food in the MDR. It depends on the location (all on deck 6) - it varies. @Merion_Mom can tell you which cabin to avoid.
  12. She finally left Dubai a couple of weeks ago and is sailing in Indian waters. Her first revenue sailing with Cordelia is listed for this weekend.
  13. She left Nassau yesterday. Biker, who likes resurrections, sometimes.
  14. Royal Caribbean has made a further update on its vaccine protocols for cruises departing the U.S. the cruise line will now accept mixed series of mRNA vaccines after updated guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Mix and Match is a Go for Royal Caribbean The CDC has clarified its position regarding mixing COVID vaccines to Royal Caribbean, and as a result, the cruise line updated its FAQ page with the relevant details. It does now mean guests will be classed as fully vaccinated even if they received doses from two different approved manufacturers. Royal Caribbean details, “For sailings departing from the U.S., the CDC will now recognize a mixed series of mRNA vaccines (e.g., 1 shot of Pfizer with 1 shot of Moderna, in any order) as fully vaccinated. The doses must be administered a minimum of 28 days apart. The guest will be considered fully vaccinated 14 days after the final dose.” Royal Caribbean Website The change will be welcome news for those who have received mixed vaccinations. Guests will be classed fully vaccinated not just by remaining with the same vaccine but also if 1 shot is from Pfizer and 1 shot from Moderna. Both are mRNA type vaccines. The doses must be administered a minimum of 28 days apart to be accepted, and guests will be fully vaccinated 14 days after the final dose. Royal Caribbean also accepts the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine, which only needs one shot and not an mRNA type. Before the Vaccine Update Previously, for guests to be fully vaccinated before a cruise vacation, they could only receive the doses from just one of the approved manufacturers such as Pfizer, Moderna, and Janssen. Before the cruise line updated its website on September 20, 2021, with the new guidance from the CDC, it said, “We understand some guests may have been vaccinated with doses from two different vaccine manufacturers. Whether these are accepted depends on where you are sailing from and the mix of manufacturers.” It went on to say, “The U.S. CDC has clarified their position regarding mixed vaccinations and provided updated guidance to Royal Caribbean. Currently, the CDC does not recognize any mixed combination of COVID-19 vaccines as fully vaccinated. To be recognized as fully vaccinated, guests must complete a vaccine series with products from the same manufacturer with the last dose administered at least 14 days before their sail date.” Royal Caribbean Now Recognizes Mixed mRNA Vaccines for U.S. Cruises (cruisehive.com)
  15. Welcome to CC. Realize that if you get it, while you can have the two other folks in the other cabin join you in the 2 bdr GS, they won't have suite privileges.
  16. I think that's true for anyone that wants to use independently. You can't set it up before being connected to the ship's wifi.
  17. You could try to confirm what the first rep told you - call again and ask a non-leading question of the rep on when excursions are supposed to be available.
  18. If she does, there likely won't be anything done very noticeable to customers.
  19. Yes, they just have a female USB at the end where you'd normally have the mobile device connector. The port folks would not notice that it's an extension (vs regular cable) and there should be no issue bringing it on board.
