  1. Yes, we did the $10 Port Pass/Aviary thing in Costa Maya. Once we walked through it, we pretty much had free reign of the port. It's a very arbitrary requirement.
  2. Our 6 year old daughter didn't want to leave Odyssey's adventure ocean on the Sep 5th cruise, despite the distance, and she still made friends. The kids handle it better than most adults I've found. The only "restricted" areas are some bars and the casino. And for shows we had to sit in the balcony if she was with us, that's really it. There were only approx 54 kids on that cruise, so we basically could use adventure ocean when we wanted to. (Most nights and one morning session) AO does have limited capacity, but they didn't hit it on that cruise. (We reserved the nights ahead of time just in case, but the morning one we just went up to check and did not reserve it)
  3. Wonder of the Seas will replace Allure of the Seas in Europe for summer 2022. Guests booked on Allure will get moved to Wonder.
  4. Got of the Odyssey yesterday, no covid on that sailing, however they did stop to drop off a crew member on day 2 back in Ft. Lauderdale that had a high fever (but tested negative for covid).
  5. It looks like Tropical Storm Grace is going to go to Cozumel tomorrow night/Thursday as a hurricane. Has the ship brought any of that up? I think Cozumel is day 5.
  6. There will be some that cancel or don't want to jump thorough the hoops, but I suspect not as many as you would think. Odds of getting a successful royal up bid (Even lowball) is much higher than usual because of this, though. (or someone being very unlucky and getting a positive test right before the cruise) https://www.royalcaribbean.com/booked/cruise-room-upgrade To check to see if you can bid or not
  7. The county opened a second testing site on the east side of town starting today at the Econ soccer complex. The original testing site at Barnett Park/Fairgrounds is still open. http://ocfl.net/EmergencySafety/Coronavirus/Testing.aspx
  8. This highlights why the CDC should not be setting policy, only recommending. The mixed vaccine thing is a great example of inane bureaucracy.
  9. There is https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/2463-odyssey-of-the-seas-roll-calls/ I think it may not show up unless you are logged in though.
  10. Carnival likely will hold out changes as long as possible to try to preserve the normal experience, but I'd still expect things to change on a dime, probably multiple times, depending on what happens on these cruises, particularly Mardi Gras. Last week Celebrity Edge had 7 cases, and Celebrity is using the same rules Carnival is. Adventure of the Seas was similar. And I'm fairly sure what happened on board is why Royal changed procedures so suddenly. I know if I was found positive on the ship, I'd start documenting everything (photos, videos, journaling) because that info is vital for feedback when everything is so new.
  11. There's a lot of meida obfuscation in the "breakthrough cases in Massachussets Story." It boils down to 90% male, during "Bear week" in provincetown. You can google it if you want. Gives a whole new context to that outbreak.
  12. Odyssey already had it this past week, Monday-Wed, schedule similar to Allure's.
  13. Here's a video log showing boarding the Freedom of the Seas two weeks ago with a 5 year old getting tested at the terminal in Miami. https://youtu.be/JCKukdWYHew?t=105
