  1. My travel agent managed to get a price drop on our junior suite on Allure for next year and they agreed to transfer over the $200 OBC attached to the old booking even though it wasnt part of the new promotion. Had to speak to 3 different operators but she got there in the end!
  2. I booked this almost as soon as the itinerary was released and the price has never gone lower than I initially paid (we live in the UK). We have a corner aft balcony booked on deck 8 - looking forward to some spectacular views from there.
  3. We did western med on Harmony on her maiden season . It's a great itinerary (I think we have done it 4 times now) with lots of amazing places to visit. Barcelona is worth spending 3 or 4 days in if you could spare the time - we have stayed in it 3 times now pre cruise and found new things to see and do each time. Do not miss Sagrada Familia- one of the most spectacular buildings in the world in my opinion.
  4. We are booked on Jewel to iceland in June next year- is that the cruise you are doing? We have Allure booked for August next year and recently booked Odyssey for January 2022. Have to help keep Royal afloat lol!
  5. Happy to report my travel agent has now successfully repriced one of our reservations which previously had been denied to her. Very much depends who you talk to!
  6. We have allure booked for 15th August 2021 . We have a large family group with all ages - it would be great if they added playmakers and the water slides along with some of the restaurants - not bothered about anything else.
  7. Just got a very quick response confirming that we can reprice more than once - great to have it in writing. The telephone operators do not seem to know this!
  8. Thanks for this info - I have just messaged them so I will be very interested in their reply!
  9. Thanks. I am aware of the variability of phone operators. My travel agent is independent and lives just a few houses down from me so I know her very well and I know she will do her very best for me so no issues there. It is good to know that you have repriced a number of times and also upgraded as we our potentially looking at that as well.
  10. Previously in the UK if we saw a better price after we had booked , the only option was to cancel , lose your deposit and rebook (occasionally they would allow you one free change as part of an early booking promotion , but usually only within about a month of booking). They now advertise a Best Price Guarantee on the UK website which allows you to reprice your booking with no penalty , or if it is inside final payment you can get onboard credit for the difference. My question is how many times can you do this- my travel agent has been told by several RC people on the phone that it is one free change (I have already repriced once) but nowhere on the website or in the terms and conditions can I find a mention that it can only be done once. I am aware that under US terms and conditions you can do it an unlimited number of times. Anyone in the UK have any experience of using Best price Guatantee , or more specifically using it more than once on the same booking?
  11. We had 8096 on rhapsody a couple of years ago on a Greek isles and Croatia cruise out of venice. Just a fantastic balcony. My parents in law had the aft cabin next to us and it was absolutely fine - large balcony and they loved it.
  12. We are from the UK and today the health secretary announced they have begun trials on a covid 19 swab test which will give a result in 20mins. If successful this type of test would be invaluable in getting the cruise industry ( and many others ) up and running again.
  13. What about cruises which theoretically can sail in August or september , but are currently maybe 70% booked or more - will they try to reduce the number of passengers by offering incentives to change sailing? There must be some sailings which will encounter that scenario. And I wonder what their initial capacity limit will be set at - 50% , 60% , higher?
  14. It's the ultra spacious family oceanview - there are 5 of them on deck 11. Yes it's one bathroom , but the cabin is the size of a junior suite. It was the most economical option to get them all in a balcony cabin of some sort.
  15. Am I correct in saying that there is a bathtub with a shower above it (not a separate shower) in the deck 11330 - I cannot find any pictures of this actual room , but I assume it is a mirror image of 11730. The walk from the elevators doesn't bother me so that is not an issue. From several replies here (thank you) looks like noise is not an issue. It moves us further away from the cabins in the rest of our party , but it's still on the same deck on the same side , so again not really a problem. In our party There is a family of 5 in a spacious oceanview balcony so the extra room we would have in our cabin would be great - one or more of our nephews and nieces could spend a bit of time in our room or on our balcony- I know they would love it. The other option on that deck is a grand suite which offers more space than the junior suite and the same perks as the aqua suite but for less money (£1000 less than the AS). However it doesn't have the "wow" factor of the aquatheater suite. Decisions, decisions !
