  1. I purchased the key on the Oasis Apr 7 sailing out of Port Canaveral, about 6 weeks prior at $19.99 per day per adult a pop (we had 4 pax in the cabin but only 2 adults and 2 toddlers, so it was worth it). I believe this was something like 30% off regular price key. However, that sailing got cancelled due to the crane accident in Freeport. So I rebooked on the Harmony (around Apr 2), sailing out of Fort Lauderdale for Apr 28 sailing. I then purchased the key on Apr 5 through the booking agent for $23.99 per day per adult, slightly more expensive than the Oasis above. Even today in Cruise Planner (Apr 12) I see the key as being available for the same price $23.99. So if i had a guess, you can buy the key from around 60-days prior to sailing to the time they sell out (maybe 2 weeks prior to sailing). The Royal Caribbean resolutions agent that helped me re-book told me the limit for Keys are set at 5% of total people on board, so if Harmony has a full sailing for 5500 people, 275 people is the max # of keys sold.
  2. ummm, it was in the news...construction crane fell through the top deck (aquatheatre was badly damaged)
  3. min bid is usually slightly less than 1/3 of the max bid, so in this case would be something like $1500?
  4. So....since Oasis got cancelled. I rebooked on Harmony Apr out of Fort Lauderdale for about the same price, on Apr 28 sailing (it's $150 more on Harmony, for Boardwalk balcony stateroom 9xxx) I received Royal UP almost immediately. Knowing the sailing is completely full, especially with some spillover from Oasis. I'm not going to put in a bid. But here's what the bid details were: Junior Suite - $400 pp (this seems quite expensive) Ultra Spacious Ocean View with Large Balcony - $250 pp Spacious Ocean View (could be larger stateroom or larger balcony) - $200 pp Ocean View Balcony - $100 pp Cheers,
  5. I grew up in Taiwan until age 9. My elementary school classroom had 60+ for 1 teacher. I also was told that in high school it can be as much as 100 students in one class with 1 teacher, sometimes with an aid. That said, I don't think Taiwanese education system is that bad. They are focused a bit more on academics than a broad-based education here in Canada after I moved here. That said, I have a 2 young ones (4.5 years old with ASD/SPD/OCD/ADHD) and a 18 month old so I can totally understand where you're coming from.
  6. has anyone on the Oasis originally sailing Apr 7 (or the other two sailings) received any refunds yet? I was told refunds would come Apr 8 but I have not seen anything.
  7. On the Oasis Apr 7 booked in a Ocean View Balcony for 4 pax Originally paid $2450 USD. received the Royal UP email about 6 weeks ago. These were the starting bids: Owner Suite - $800 pp Grand Suite - $500 pp Junior Suite - $200 pp Ultra Spacious Ocean View with Large Balcony (I believet this is the room for 6 pax with bunk beds) - $150 pp Spacious Ocean View with Large Balcony - $100 pp Entered a bid for GS/JS/Ultra Spacious Ocean View. Fingers crossed. GS for a total of $3400 on a 7 days Oasis for 4 people does not seem too bad. Considering I already purchased the Key for $280 total - and would refund it if I can get GS since it will have many of the perks as the Key.
