  1. I agree - a little more info up front would have helped. I didn't follow the threads a few weeks ago regarding the other ships that were flipped flopped around. I guess this is what happened to those cruisers as well. My TA has just reached out to my group - everyone is waiting for more info to be released.
  2. I feel your pain. My group specifically booked for the ports. Already did L&S from '21 to '22 hoping the new protocols would ease by then. Now just waiting to see what the new itinerary is. I expect to see the Radiance only doing a 8 day trip instead of the 9 we booked. Hope I am wrong.
  3. You can call Royal and buy the deluxe package for you and the refreshment package for your wife. She can then buy drinks a la carte if/when she would like something. Only pain is that if there is a price drop you have to call back to cancel/repurchase.
  4. Mighty specific date.....I am currently searching Nostradamus' quatrains for some insider information on this prediction.
  5. Don't be surprised if the error is never corrected by Royal. I brought a much larger refund error to Royal's attention and it was never reversed. We just decided to be more generous with the staff on the next cruise.
  6. https://www.cruisedeckplans.com/DP/deckplans/dragdeck.php?ship=Quantum-of-the-Seas Looks like the whirlpool is above - not sure what the obstruction is.
  7. Bring a ship back to New London, CT and allow only Nutmeggers on. We have done a decent job for the last few months. I would be willing to risk taking the trip.....for research purposes only, of course.
  8. Who doesn't love the Junior Suites with the stripper poles? 🥰 Here is the list of Junior Suites with poles at the foot of the bed - list has been floating around CC for awhile. 8020 8520 8026 8526 8030 8530 8036 8536 8044 8544 8052 8552 8058 8558 8064 8564 8070 8570 8076 8576
  9. In the case of CT, many of the same front line workers are tested and retested on a regular basis. We may be testing at or about 50,000 people a week, but that number doesn't mean that we test 50,000 new/different people every week - the stats are not broken down that way. I won't get tested just to get tested - that is not how I have ever used health care.
  10. More importantly.....can I still get all the goodies from the inaugural sailing? I need more tchotchkes to dust! 🤣
  11. You could also go to the Roll Calls for this year's sailings and ask those already booked for ideas that might work for the children. In my experience, the types of excursions available usually stay the same or very similar year over year.
  12. Don't panic if the fridge is not in your cabin when you arrive. Even with an email to Special Needs, the information doesn't always get through to the ships. Your cabin steward will make it right asap. When emailing Special Needs be sure to include all your information - name, reservation #, ship, sail date, cabin # as well as your needs (fridge, distilled water, extension cords, shower stool, etc). Have a great trip!
  13. I had been thinking that the extra passes I will have from renting a Thrill Water Park cabana would be "worth" something. Little did I know that I bet on the wrong horse this year. I offered to cover the cost of a "friend" and her DH on a sunset catamaran cruise we are planning while in Aruba next year - we are negotiation how many rolls of TP that is worth. She is holding firm a 1 roll, but it is double-ply. 🤣
  14. Yes, Grandeur's Next Cruise desk is open on embarkation day.
  15. very smooth.... If you like rum and Coke/Diet Coke - try it with any of the root beers available from the Freestyle machines - my favorite is Kraken with diet vanilla root beer - last cruise the bar tenders had the shots ready for me to add to my drink cup before I made it to the bar.
