  1. Can anyone tell me how the current kids program is working on the Dream? Are there specific hours or limitations as to how many kids can be in the program or how many hours you can sign up for? Also, we have early seating dinner and was curious what the process was if the kids wanted to be in the program during dinner and if they were open during that time. Thanks!
  2. Does anyone know what determines who gets the RoyalUp email? For my last two cruises I am listed as the primary with my email address but yet the other person on the cruise gets the email and I don't. And in one case I have a relative traveling and they didn't even get the email but the travel agent did. Curious if there's a setting that needs to be adjusted on the site because of that.
  3. Didn't find a post already on this but looks like Royal extended their COVID coverage from Oct 31 to Dec 31: COVID-19 Assistance Vaccinated guests and children not yet eligible to be vaccinated who are sailing on or before December 31, 2021 will have the following COVID-19 Assistance at no extra charge. • 100% cruise fare refund for you, and your Travelling Party, if any of you tests positive for COVID-19 within 14 days prior to the cruise or at the boarding terminal. • Pro-rated cruise fare refund if your cruise is cut short for reasons related to COVID-19. • If you test positive for COVID-19 during the cruise, Royal Caribbean will cover the costs of COVID-19 related medical treatment onboard, any required land-based quarantine, and travel home for you and your Traveling Party. *Last modified August 31, 2021. Subject to change. “Traveling Party” means your family members living with you in the same household and traveling companions assigned to your stateroom on the cruise. Conditioned upon compliance with the RCG COVID-19 Policies and Procedures in effect at the time of the cruise. Additional terms and conditions apply. See our COVID-19 Refund and Cancellations Policy and your Cruise Ticket Contract for details.
  4. How far in advance of sailing is the email sent to register unvaccinated for the testing at the pier? We have 2 children travelling with us. Thanks
  5. May I ask how this worked with the test results since only 3 people were registered when ordering? How did they populate the other names for the test results? We have 4 adults and 2 children travelling and was going to order the 6 pack but kept seeing how the test packs were designed to basically provided everyone with a back-up test (a 2 test kit is for 1 person, a 6 test kit is for 3 people, etc.). Thanks!
  6. Do you know what kind of test it is that they use and what the paperwork says? I am booked for CVS next week but want to have a plan B (and C and D), just in case we have a similar issue. I can't find any info on their site as to what test they provide. Thanks!
  7. With all of the recent cancellations both by cruise lines and people denied due to COVID testing, does anyone know what happens to onboard credit applied to your account which was transferred from the BOA RCCL credit card? The BOA site says that cancellations forfeit the OBC, however, i've also heard different stories as to what happens. Will points go back to the card? Will RCCL capture the OBC for a future sailing? Nervous to add too much and then either they cancel or for some reason my group tests positive before sailing and we cannot get the credit back. On a separate note, I also wanted to purchase OBC for someone travelling with me in another cabin and would normally do this in advance. However, if they also have an issue and cannot sail, what happens to the OBC then? As a result, I wanted to know if I could just wait and purchase it onboard. Thanks
  8. Do you know where you saw this on Disney's site? I can't find it. We may run into this scenario and wanted to send something to Royal in advance to see how they are handling and if another cruise line addresses this, would like to point this out to them. Thanks
  9. Interesting that the 2nd part is for outside the U.S. since the CDC allows for it and would basically be what we need since the kids can't be vaccinated anyway. As for the 1st part, they reference that this is not allowed to prevent vaccination but wish they included guidance on the test result portion itself. I guess i'll call them and get 20 different answers! 🙂 Thanks
  10. The CDC site kind of says that but can't find anything on the Royal site that does.
  11. Couldn't find this answer on the boards so wanted to check to see if anyone knows here since I also don't see it mentioned on the RCCL site. We had 2 kids test positive last month and are now well beyond the quarantine and infectious period. I've read online that you can still possibly test positive for months beyond that and the CDC states that if this is the case, you should provided the original positive test and documentation from your doctor that you are good to travel and they called this "documented recovery". Does anyone know if RCCL is allowing this? We are travelling the beginning of Sep so trying to figure out our options just in case they come back with a residual positive test. Thanks
  12. So curious as to how this will be viewed. Will RCCL be allowed to get around the FL law because of the island requirement or will the requirements of the destination trump the law? My gut is the FL law would win and RCCL would be expected to change the destination but who knows... Considering the FL law in place now it would have been nice if RCCL added some more detail to their email as to what that all meant for the itinerary or passenger population.
  13. Assuming i'm looking at the right port schedule site for St Thomas, Allure is not on the schedule until Sep so wondering if they already removed Allure from St Thomas at least in Aug so far. It was strange wording in the email to begin with since it really doesn't say what's going to happen with the stop overall.
