  1. Thanks for the advice. We were able to L and S for August of next year. They didn't have our category available but upgraded us to the next category up. I am thrilled as we wanted the same itinerary and didn't want to deal with masks or monitors this year. So, we were able to get the same itinerary and the price protection. This was a L and S from a PR cruise last year where we paid about $350 a person for three of us. Last year they let us move it to Symphony since there were no PR cruises going out during the time period that we could L and S. There was NO way we would get that price
  2. I am trying to lift and shift our canceled cruise for next year. Since they do not have the exact same room category available on any of the dates that fall into their parameters they denied me. Has anyone had luck with having them waive this option? Also has anyone had luck with trying to pay a little more to move to a different category or accepting a lower category? Tia
  3. I guess we should ban all kids. Disney may as well throw in the towel now. if you don’t like the rules don’t go. RC and carnival have lots of kids during the summer. Even if everyone was vaccinated, I know of at least two people personally who got sick with Covid a month after their last shot. It can happen. Luckily if you are going to the Caribbean you at least have sunlight on your side. It kills the virus. There are other lines that cater more to people without kids. Go that route as they are requiring vaccines and will be cruising this summer as well. Give RC a break. T
  4. Yes, I am not counting on Lift and Shift. The room I want to Lift and Shift is from a previous cruise last year that was canceled and we moved it to this year. I got a great deal and paid with points so I would rather not get a refund. But... it is better than a FCC.
  5. Question... so we are booked on Symphony July 24 and obviously it is not happening. We have three rooms booked and I plan to Lift and Shift one of the reservations. That reservation had the drink package at a pretty good price because of Black Friday. If I Lift and Shift the cruise does the drink package Lift and Shift also? If not I want to cancel now. The last cruise I had booked it took forever to get my planner money back and I was on the phone multiple times where they said they didn't see any reservations for packages.
  6. It was just the French roll shaped loaf in the paper sleeve that they sell at grocery stores. I would get one and just eat the whole thing with butter. Yum. Carb free stinks. I want bread!!!!! I didn’t realize La Bombonera closed. That is sad. But we haven’t been to PR in about four years. I love OSJ.
  7. Make sure you have the fresh bread in OSJ. It’s available at any grocery store. I am drooling thinking about it! No other bread like it. Or maybe I was just happy to have carbs for a change.
  8. I’m going to get crushed for this but here it goes. I am only posting because I care and not to cause problems. Otherwise I would just let it go. Please stop allowing the powers that be to win. Please. They have tried to turn us against each other forever because we have different color skin. The absolute stupidest reason in the world to assess a persons character. Now they are using the vaccine to split us. The vaccinated think unvaccinated people are selfish and uninformed. The unvaccinated think the vaccinated are sheep and uninformed. Stop falling into the trap. We don’t
  9. If I remember correctly, a couple of years ago Allure had a chat app that was free. It has been a while back but I am pretty sure we communicated that way with the kids.
  10. I have never complained about a ship or a cruise. I always enjoyed every minute of not cooking or cleaning and having the kids full all the time. There may have been things that were not to my liking, but there are so many options for that reason. However, after this, I will be soaking up every second with joy. This really did teach me to not take the privilege of going on an incredible vacation with my kids for granted.
  11. I just got this from a travel agency. Is this just the same old, same old or did they get some information? Anyone know? The CDC has approved sailings resuming from U.S. ports beginning in June. The cruise lines have worked with the CDC to implement the strictest health and safety standards, and are committed to giving you the safe and amazing cruise experience you’ve been waiting for. For vaccinated travelers, the new guidance allows for more freedoms — like no masks and your choice of shore excursions. This is the news we’ve all been waiting for, and our ded
  12. I agree. Not everyone lives an hour from the port. We need to make plans for animals if we are leaving, airline tickets, hotel reservations, etc. There is so much more to this than getting on the boat. A lot of preparation goes into a trip and to sit and wait is pretty irritating. I’m sorry but they know what will happen. In order to get a crew and set the ship up to sail it will take time. They have to start this process for a ship like Symphony to sail with loads of people far in advance. If they have not started it will not sail. So they have to know one way or the other. Putting tons
  13. I agree with you and feel your frustration! We are getting close to a month out from July cruises and still no word. And, I feel like they are making things worse by saying, "maybe and maybe not." Before you knew that they would be canceled and you could make a game plan, but how many people have the money to plan and pay for two vacations? I personally don't have 15K to put down on two trips that may or may not go. I hope that they do make a decision and an announcement by tomorrow.
  14. We have done both itineraries. You really can't go wrong with the Caribbean, but personally I prefer the ABC island cruise if you are going to go out of PR. We have done both itineraries out of PR and Aruba/Curacao was our favorite. That being said, if you can get a Roatan/Belize on Harmony or Symphony that would be my first choice. We went on Allure for the first time a couple of years ago and I don't think the kids would ever be happy with a smaller ship again. At the time they were 12, 14, 16 and 20. They loved the ship so much and had a blast. I think we could have gone anywhere and
