  1. While I am on that same Oasis sailing on September 19th, I have not received any cancellations for any of my bids. I did notice that the categories I placed a bid on were all cabin categories higher than those you listed. I also did not bid the minimum bids for any of them as well. Yet, I placed my bids on Tuesday (7/13) and received confirmation of my bid requests on Wednesday (7/14). And then received another email to "Act Now" and submit bids again on Sunday (7/18). But I checked my bids and they are all still pending and no cancellation emails. So I am just going to wait and see.
  2. With Royal setting up these negotiations to sail with 1/2 capacity, did anyone consider that they could start with Odyssey of the Seas out of Bayonne in August? At present, there are no bookings and no dates "revealed" for the US when it arrives. I also think that they can easily cancel existing sailings of Oasis through August/September due to the negotiation requirement if they are truly booked beyond 50% presently. I would not put it past them to simply cancel, offer lift and shift and FCCs to start sailing with Odyssey or Vision or some other vessel. Just my opinion.
  3. Knock me out. (Where is spell check when you need it).
  4. Can we just consider my original reply to be a foul ball. It doesn't hurt, but it doesn't know me out.
  5. I guess there has been some modifications to the option from when I did my Lift and Shift back 2 days after they offered it. The ever changing world of RCCL. Sorry for any confusion with today's rules.
  6. Your TA is correct. Must be the exact same ship, itinerary and length in days. I did it successfully for my August 28th cruise out of Cape Liberty on Oasis for a year out from the original date. Everything the same, including using my very low rate versus the higher rate today.
  7. If this move to the JS from a balcony is due to the Royal Up bid offer, I believe the rule is you get everything listed above except for the Extra C&A point per night.
  8. The Grand Suite Guarantee option does exist. I know as I have taken advantage of it for a cruise on the Anthem of the Seas for an 11 day sailing. Unlike the OP, I was awarded a Sky Loft Suite when then assigned suites (and this cruise is sold out). Trust me when I say that I have been looking and will continue to look for another opportunity like this on this ship and others going forward. With respect to the OP situation, I would not accept anything lower than a GS or the perks associated with the GS (and a couple of other things thrown in...just for upsetting me) as they did BUY the guarante
  9. I see that no one saw the price of the drink package for the Odyssey for November 2020 is north of $80 per person per day.
  10. I would never give Izumi a chance. I did not like sushi and not a fan of raw fish. After speaking with a staff member from Izumi on the deck, I took a chance. He walked me through a lot of items on the menu. Now I go to Izumi (non-hibachi) all the time when it is on a ship that I am traveling on. I enjoy so many of the other options on the menu (from the salads, soups, stir fry with your choice of protein, dumplings and many, many more options). If you have the UD package then go for lunch (around noon). Review the menu in detail with the staff. If not impressed, then you can leave and still
  11. Well I thought I would simply ask what a number of people are thinking. Is there any verifiable rumors as to when, where and what ship will be the next President's cruise. I know that they may very well announce this info officially (next week) at the Q&A session on Symphony. However, sometimes info is leaked and if so, feel free to post. I was there last year on Harmony when it was announced and trust me the line at Next Cruise was extremely long. I will not be on Symphony for the 50th Birthday Bash and would much rather call the customer service number than stand in a long line.
  12. Are you saying the Suite perks have changed from what is was for Oasis class ships? If so, then what are the suite perks for this sailing and future cruises? I was one of the suite guests from last year and previous years. I (as well as other suite guests I know) did not book this cruise due to the rather high prices. In fact, I booked the Allure the next day for a suite with a Genie for far less than the recent price of the Crown Loft on the Birthday cruise. Just saying.
  13. Symphony for the Birthday/President cruise on 11/2/2019 out of Miami. The one with all the RCCL VIPs on it.
  14. I see that the L2 Crown Loft Suites are now (today) at the lowest price I have seen at $8,731 (for double occupancy). Wasn't this category just below $12,000 at final payment...or somewhere near that price? Compared to those who bought before, this is a great score. A bit out of my price range...even for the 50th birthday celebration...but a good score in comparison. Any chance of refunds due to the price drop?
