  1. We booked a "Grand Suite with Large Balcony". Does anyone have a picture or information they could share on how the sofa makes into a bed? TIA
  2. @Hoopster95 @twangster I realize I am posting two years after the fact. I just had to comment and give Hoopster95, Twangster, and all the contributors my thanks and appreciation in case you happen to read my reply. What an awesome review! I took my time reading it and was just smiling the whole time. After my perfectly planned Symphony cruise was canceled in May of 2020, it was too sad to visit CC. However, hoping for happy vacation days ahead. We booked an Alaskan Ovation cruise for 2021. Thanks again for the amazing information and extraordinary pictures and videos!
  3. Good luck is all I can say. I had a May 30th cruise booked. After the first round of cancellations, I was just waiting for my cancellation day to come. On April 16th, I used the Royal Caribbean web link to request my refund and printed the confirmation. May 8 I called Royal directly. After being on hold for 1.5 hours, I was able to talk to an agent. At first he wouldn't confirm anything since I had booked via a travel agent. But he eventually spoke to supervisors and did confirm that my refund was processing. Today - I just got a call from my TA saying that my FCC had been processed and would I want to book another cruise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I almost flipped my lid. So here we go again!!!
  4. Thank you for your help! Actually, after reading your reply, I changed from Chrome to Edge (or whatever it is from Microsoft) and typed in the number and it worked. Glad I can put this part behind me. Now I will just wait.😪
  5. No, the sun is still up. I have not received an email for my May 30th cruise. The link on this thread to receive a refund did not work (thank you for posting though). Maybe it will work later. I got an error message. I did book through a TA. Can I cancel on my own or will I have to cancel through the TA?
  6. Yes, exactly what he does! You forgot the eye roll, though. What I would like to say to him is, "Ok college aged know it all." That comment would not help at all as true as it is. I have to keep reminding myself that he knows everything.🙄
  7. I just made boomer. My college age son is always making fun of me. But I am proud of it!
  8. Thank you! I just love that dog! Wish I lived near you guys and could babysit, I mean dog sit, when you were on your adventures.
  9. We purchased our American Airlines flight in December for our May 30th cruise. In February, our flight time was changed by 2 hours and 19 minutes. At that time, we were not offered to change our flight or receive a refund. I did read on one of the frequent flyer blogs that you could receive a refund if the change was 2 hours or more. But I read about the policy some time after the change was made. Any thoughts about getting a refund now? Probably next to zero. . .
  10. I hope you are right. People are much more important than money. I hope the sick get the help they need. It is just hard to see several years of gains slip away in days and the worst may be yet to come.
  11. Well, I am supposed to sail May 30th. I priced out the exact same cruise in June of 2021. If our sailing is cancelled, the 125% FCC would not come close to covering the 2021 cruise. May cruises are cheaper than June cruises and the price may drop, but still... My 401(k) is falling faster than a lead balloon. The financial news leaves me sick to my stomach. If only 80% was offered, I don't know what I would do. I would think about taking the cash and running with it. I should have done that with my 401 (k) when I had the chance. At least I am able to put food on the table and have a job. My heart goes out to so many many people affected by this halting of society.
  12. Too funny!! You had me there for a minute! We moved a few years ago. Now I miss my hot tub.
  13. I love Disney. I love to cruise. I am not a scientist or doctor. But I'd have to agree. I am much closer to people much more of the time at Disney World. The words that make me cringe - "fill in all available space." You are seriously shoulder to shoulder and face to face with people in tiny pre-show areas and lines. People are sneezing, coughing, and breathing just inches from you. The only time I have been that close to people on a ship is muster drill on the deck of Liberty and walking out of Studio B from muster drill.
  14. Great, thanks! So the T & C in regard to taxes and port fees makes total sense.
  15. Just wondering. . . If you are responsible for the port fees, taxes, and prepaid grats on the new cruise, are they refunded to you from the original cancelled cruise? When we missed our San Juan stop due to riots, we were refunded the port fees. We were already sailing when the decision made to skip the port. So the situation was different.
  16. We won't visit the Beach Club until early June, so it may change. However, where did you wait for the tram to pick you up at the ship?
  17. Well, I just read your recent post. You and I were posting at the same time. I am glad you put the ball in her court. I am glad you are still going on the trip. Anything could happen on a cruise, or any where else for that matter. So, glad to know your grandmother is in good hands should your mom decide to go. It is hard to have an aging parent. I hope your vacation is wonderful!
  18. In the past few years, I have had to encounter things I never thought I would. I see things in a different way now. Here is what I would do if I were in your shoes. Honor her feelings and let her know you hear her concerns. You have probably already told her all the reasons she doesn't need to be concerned. Maybe try once more. Then, let her know that she would not be able to get her money refunded should she cancel. Tell her that you will respect her decision. Then, try to be at peace with what she decides.
  19. For my May sailing on Symphony, the menus are listed in the app. I looked up your sailing. According to the app (don't know if it is correct), the main entrees are: Pan Seared Fillet of Sole Chicken Parmesan Braised Beef Short Rib Caribbean Jerk Pork Loin Creamy Wild Mushroom Risotto Roasted Chicken Breast NY Strip Horseradish Crusted Salmon Spaghetti Bolognese
  20. So glad you mentioned this. . . I was a little unsure about not having a sea day on day 7. You are right, day 7 has always been a little sad. We head to Coco Cay Beach Club in June. Now, I am looking forward to it more than ever.
  21. I like this idea, too! Just an FYI, my Dollar Store white board did work on Harmony. My neighbors wrote sweet comments on it throughout the cruise. I put it on the side of the fridge when we got home. The last sweet note is still on it. If you happen to be reading this post Harmony July 14, 2019, Cabin 12610 - Hello and thanks for the messages! Your former neighbor 12612
  22. That does it! Vacation ruined! Just kidding! Seriously, thanks for the post. Good to know because I like to know what to expect on a cruise and this might have surprised me.
