  1. Please share your source of this information. Everything I read is that she is in Greece and not scrapped.
  2. Leaving more questions unanswered seems to be the wrong way to go. Just provide information as soon as it is available without a 'teaser' post. Why? Providing specific and precise information when many are hesitant to even book a cruise is the right policy.
  3. I really would of thought this 'news' would of been officially released no later than 24 hrs from the original posting. I am not at a PR guy, but just seems to be too prolonged at this point to serve as a positive response or purpose.
  4. Would be a good thing, but just not the 'wow' factor worthy of the hype posting from yesterday.
  5. Understand that and I originally took it the wrong way. The 'lifetime' response originally stated seems to be a perfect teaser to a World Cruise.
  6. Royal had no idea that cruises to Cuba would be stopped by the government due to increased restrictions. Took longer and was more expensive than previously estimated to bring her condition up to Royal standards. It was also a wise choice at the time to spend the money to give Boleros a heavy Cuban theme. Empress really was perfect for these Cuba sailings. Best espresso at the cafe in Boleros on any Royal ship I may add. The added cost could of been easily recouped had she been allowed to sail for years longer without the government intervention. Empress was easier to sell off due to her recent renovation. Horizon will need a little more love, but World Cruises command a high per diem. It would justify the investment needed to get her ready.
  7. Hope Royal gives me credit somehow if I am correct... Seems like a riddle thrown out there for someone to figure out.
  8. Image of a world globe also in his post.... It seems to all fit together.
  9. The original 'lifetime' reference means to me a World Cruise as you usually do it once in your lifetime. I am guessing the former Celebrity/Pullmantur Horizon doing this cruise because of the Horizon reference. Her smaller size will allow her to visit more ports.
  10. You have full text of his original Facebook post by chance?
  11. Did he really say lifetime? Did he originally post this below? Sounds like a carnival barker to me. Unlike Royal who many of us respect. Someone please correct me. if he did not post this..... Get ready for the news of a lifetime. A big announcement is on the horizon. 🌎 Stay tuned!
  12. Alcohol available onboard at the same average price per drink of a land based restaurant or bar? This is too easy...
  13. Return of drink package at $18 a day? Pre-covid price and to makeup for those who had this price for the cruises that were cancelled?
  14. Hope the WJ was open for dinner with those high passenger counts.
  15. Sounds like a guarantee to me. Those like me who pay extra to pick a certain cabin and pay more. Moving you to another random cabin after paying a premium for a specific cabin and location seems not so good.
  16. If I was moved, I would knock on the cabin door of my original cabin to see if it was empty. This seems so bizarre. It has to more to this.
  17. Always sailed out of terminal 6 on Royal on our last 4 cruises from Tampa. Used to be able to see ships docked there when camera panned over to that direction, but all the new buildings that have just gone up over the past couple of years blocks the view. 2 more weeks until we leave on Serenade!
  18. Waiting for beer by the yard myself....🤤
  19. Good to know. Doing my first b2b soon. I have to think that b2b's are getting more popular as they test you onboard after the first leg and you don't worry about testing for another cruise a day or a few weeks later.
  20. Feel sorry for those cruisers who don't follow Cruise Critic. It has been so useful with all the 'hoops' that are required now. I would be so lost without the helpful information many share here.
  21. Bottom right corner one side of the box with sticker. Right below REF #. Add three months to it.
  22. Got mine yesterday also. You have to add 3 months to the original expiration date. Mine originally expired 9/19/21, but the extra three months makes it valid until 12/19/21. https://www.emed.com/hubfs/Case 01269955-COL-03030 BinaxNOW™ COVID-19 Ag Home Test Product Expiry Update - Customer Letter EN - US.pdf?hsLang=en
  23. I would say most of us sailing from Florida are driving. The airplane factor does not come into play. Folks like me near Florida ports cruise often and don't fly. Everyone should be fully vaccinated anyway at the pier. More concern eating out where those around you might not be vaccinated.
  24. Royal can use it's large customer base and just offer testing at the pier for a decent rate. They seem to be more focused on high pricing at CocoCay for it's add-ons there. Folks struggling just to board should be it's main focus.
