  1. Yes, I am aware of that. I bought some when the stock was 30ish, but unfortunately only like 20. So holding 100 shares and showing a screenshot to the indicated mail should be enough.
  2. Can someone out of the US confirm that the shareholder benefit is applicable? We are from Switzerland and hold some shares. Would be nice to get the benefits! What will they accept as proof?
  3. Royal Caribbean has announced very strict rules for the sailings: TLDR: 1) All guests and crew must be vaccinated except kids. 2) Vaccinated guests need to get tested before boarding and after leaving the ship at the Barcelona Cruise Terminal. 3) All kids (2+) need to get tested before boarding, in the middle of the cruise and after leaving the ship in Barcelona. 4) Masks are required on all public spaces except pools and while eating in the restaurant.

  4. Those vaccines have official (not expedited or emergency) approvals in some countries. Our country (Switzerland) is one of the most advanced countries regarding science (including health care) and two vaccines are offficially approved: Pfizer and Moderna. The process for approval is very strict and thorough. For instance, AstraZeneca has not been approved yet. It looks weird to me that some here are denying the vaccines only because that they haven’t been officially approved in the US FDA yet. While I understand that people are skeptical, we should look at the science. There is a l
  5. Due to an error on Royal Caribbean’s system, the cruise on July 2 is not listed but bookable by phone! I got the second cabin on the ship and we are excited to join this cruise. As I hoped and suggested, it is an Amsterdam-Iceland cruise. We are really lucky because we wanted to do an Iceland cruise for such a long time and we can only leave town next year in July.
  6. Possible, but very unlikely imo. Charters are more likely in the Mediterranean.
  7. Any idea what's up with Jewel on July 2? There is a gap on the website and in the PDF of 12 days. I'm curious to find out whether there will be another Iceland cruise. As of now, there are 3 British Isles, 2 Arctic Cycles and 1 Iceland cruises.
  8. I totally agree with you OP about some concerns. Of course it is not about a specific date. But the more people have been vaccinated, the more we know about it: Whether it works, if it is safe, if it has side effects etc. I will surely wait for a few months to see how it is going to develop. I suppose that all measurements will still be necessary through 2021, but the infection risk will decrease in half a year due to many factors. For one, there is some small proportion of herd immunity. Then, there is also people who will be vaccinated. The situation is going to improve a lot alr
  9. I completely feel your frustration. We were booked on the June cruise to Norway/Iceland as well. Reading into the matter, I now understand their plan is to reduce the length of the individual cruises. From their point of view it is less likely that people get sick onboard of a < 7 night cruise if you consider the incubation time. This must be why they canceled the Jewel cruises (mostly 12 nighters) and also the Adventure ones. They moved Adventure to the Mediterranean for very short cruises. Speaking about the Baltics cruise, I imagine that they will cancel the Russian ports due
  10. I understand that they want to move around some ships. But why would they completely cancel the Jewel cruises (British Isles, Norway-Iceland)? Those itineraries are incredibly popular. Will there be another ship taking over?
  11. With every click on the Royal page, the price goes up $200. At first, it says "from $2500", then you go click on general Balcony cabin, "from $2800", and then you pick the normal Balcony cabin which is the cheapest possible and priced from "$3100". -- me, everytime on royalcaribbean.com
  12. Cheap af compared to other cruises currently offered. But a limited port selection, probably that's why.
  13. Napoli is great. You can go to islands (like Capri), have a local cruise around the Amalfi coast (Amalfi, Sorrento and more), go to the old sights (Pompeii or Ercolano), to cities (Napoli, Salerno or even Rome – 1hr by train), or just go to the beaches. Similar things can be said about Athens, although I personally do not like the city (very hot in summer, ugly flat buildings, and very messy). Of course all the ancient sights are amazing.
