  1. I am sorry if someone already asked. How about Alaska itinerary? Could I lift & shift northbound/southbound to round trip or round trip to northbound/southbound? Thank you for your answer.
  2. No, I only paid $500 deposit when I booked cruise for July 2020.
  3. Good news. I was able to use Lift and Shift to change our Rhapsody of the Seas sailing on July 2020 to Odyssey of the Seas sailing on July 2021. The same oceanview guarantee cabin. Btw, I just booked Rhapsody of the Seas yesterday. Save us $ 1300.
  4. Terms & Conditions Royal Caribbean International’s (RCI) “Cruise with Confidence” program allows individual guests and guests in non-contracted groups who booked a cruise on or before August 1, 2020, for cruises sailing between June 12, 2020 and April 30, 2022, to cancel their cruise up to 48 hours prior to the vacation start date and have the option to either (i) receive a Future Cruise Credit equal to the full amount of the cruise fare the guest paid for their cruise, or (ii) move their booking to an eligible alternate sailing and receive our “best price guarantee” for the re-booked sailing, or (iii) opt in for our “best price guarantee” on their current sailing. “Eligible alternate sailing” means a booking in the same stateroom category sailing with RCI on the same product and cruise length scheduled within four weeks before or four weeks after the date of the original sailing but in the subsequent year. For those sailings, RCI will protect the guest’s original price and/or promotion so long as the guest moves the eligible booking to the alternative sailing on or before August 1, 2020. It seems like it is ok for people who book after today. Have to call Royal Caribbean to confirm though.
  5. CRUISE WITH CONFIDENCE ENHANCED FAQS 32. If my client booked prior to August 1, 2020, is he/she eligible to Lift & Shift at any point prior to sailing? Guests are eligible to rebook under the Lift & Shift guidelines between now and August 1, 2020. After this point, Lift & Shift expires and is no longer eligible.
  6. Sorry for duplicating If someone already posted this. Actually I was VERY surprised to receive an offer for a complimentary veranda stateroom since I didn’t play a lot in the casino. Have to book by APRIL 25, 2020. However, it doesn’t mention the block out dates and the limitation. These are the sailings mentioned in the email though. Celebrity Eclipse September 6 and 13, 2020 Celebrity Millennium September 4, 2020 Celebrity Apex November 7 and 21, 2020 Celebrity Edge November 29, 2020 and December 13, 2020 Celebrity Infinity November 30, 2020; December 5, 14, 23, 28 2020; December 10 and 19, 2020 January 2 and 11, 2021 Celebrity Equinox September 4 and 25, 2020; October 5, 2020 November 6, 2020 and 27, 2020; and December 9, 2020
  7. Thank you for your answer. We just don’t know whether Royal Caribbean will charge us penalties if we don’t show up. I just don’t want to lose the cruise fare plus TA cancellation fees plus RC penalties at the end.
  8. We are also worried about catching COVID-19 or being quarantined in the ship. Therefore, we decide to cancel the cruise. What is the best way to cancel the cruise? I am asking this question because we booked the cruise through online travel agent and this travel agent would charge us $100pp if we cancel the cruise. Should we cancel before the cruise or just not show up? We already pass the final payment date and almost 30 days prior to departure. Thanks for anyone suggestion.
  9. If you have Choice Privileges Rewards points, the damage to your wallet will be only 30,000 points or 6,000 points plus $180 taxes included. It is a pretty good deal for me.
  10. I have a neighborhood balcony GTY for the August 2019 sailing on the Oasis. I already got deck number from eDoc and muster station. However, no assigned stateroom showed yet. The interesting thing is that my friends booked an inside GTY later than us. They already got the assigned stateroom. Still inside cabin, no upgrade for them though.
  11. On our first ever cruise, we played Bingo by accident. We even didn’t know how to use the machine on Royal Caribbean cruise. The couple in front of us had to teach us the rules and let us to get the machines first. Then my boyfriend won the first round and I won the second round on our first ever cruise Bingo. Ouch….
  12. Thank you so much for the quick answer.
  13. Sorry for the silly question. Two of my friends want to join us to cruise together in August. The problem is that we have late dining room time and my friends have my time dining. Late dining room time was not available when my friends booked the cruise. How could we have dinner together? No buffet, thanks. All suggestions are welcome.
  14. In Messina, we used CITY SIGHTSEEING MESSINA bus service. The bus departure from Messina around 10-10:30 and arrive in Taormina around 11:30. The same bus will take you back to Messina around 3:30-4. You will have 3 hours to visit Taormina. Not a bad option and it only costs $28 per person. https://www.city-sightseeing.it/en/tours-to-taormina-fromlow-cost-transfers/
