  1. Yes, and I normally ask questions there but this was specific to Suite Gty experience.
  2. If you view your set sail pass - the barcode usually has your room at the end - use a qr scanner to id it. Also you can "add to apple wallet" and click review and it will show your assignment if done as well. I only hit review and don't add to apple wallet.
  3. We have a suite guarantee and also have RoyalUp bids in place. What has been your experience if you've done the same? I can see my assigned room (although still saying GTY) through the app trick and can see JS assigned, which was why I figured I'd bid for the higher rooms. If you were in Suite GTY and also RoyalUP'd where did you end up?
  4. Keep in mind that if you booked with a TA you will need to call them to have the update made.
  5. I suspect we won't see kids sail free for awhile, given the need to recoup so many losses. Also, the limitations on vaccines for kids could also be playing into the decision to not offer yet.
  6. This was what I was looking for in regards to the Cruise Planner. https://creative.rccl.com/Sales/Royal/Promotions/Snapshot_of_CruisePlanner_Offers
  7. Nothing jumping out to me as changed, but just received this email from RCCL. October 16 - 31, 2021 Sailings Protocols Here are our health & safety protocols for U.S. sailings, including government mandates and CDC pre-cruise testing requirements. These are subject to change and we’ll keep you informed. Save the link below for additional details, FAQs, and future reference.

  8. I would say the RCCL is a much better experience over Carnival. While Carnival is referred to the "party" atmosphere, I think RCCL is a step above Carnival. Just my opinion of course, there are folks who love Carnival - just not for me, I prefer RCCL and Celebrity.
  9. While at times you may be correct, there are certainly sales where folks have been able to get adjustments to prices paid or OBC for differences after Paid In Full.
  10. Just checking to see if anyone has gotten update on the what the next sale expectations are?
  11. My exact experience. I've already sent them a note about the expiration, but I did not see anything in the package about the expiration date being extended. Will advise once I hear back from Optum. S
  12. QUESTION ABOUT Invite to Royal UP - We are 48 days out, and have not received an invite to bid yet, and I keep seeing the 30 days message when I navigate to the RU URL. Do you suspect we won't be offered to RoyalUp if they haven't sent yet, or have most seen invites after the 30 day mark? We only previously bid on RU prior to Covid and got the invite very early (Like 60 days out). Sorry if this was previously answered in this thread.
  13. Thank you! Just took a peek - always love your thorough reports.
  14. Great news! I must have missed those reports - will go look for them. Enjoy!
  15. Nice to see The Bird sailing again. Looking forward to your updates.
  16. I saw ours on FOS 10/31/21 dropped from $1700 to $799 this morning too. Hubby still said no, but we're doing the Beach Club at least.
  17. True, but people were asking where the RCCL tests were. Figured I would share the link.
  18. I don't see why you couldn't order two packs, but as shown above might be cheaper at eMed.
  19. For those looking for the storefront to order BinaxNow tests, here it is. I was just able to place my order - same options 2 tests or 3 tests. https://store.optum.com/royal-caribbean/
  20. Use this link https://store.optum.com/royal-caribbean/ and ordered. 2 or 3 test options.
  21. Thank you all for your feedback. I'll try to be patient and continue to wait for the 30 day mark.
  22. I've been checking the Royal Up URL (https://www.royalcaribbean.com/booked/cruise-room-upgrade) since 60 days out, but keep getting the 30 day notice. When did you receive an invite to Royal UP? Thanks for sharing your experience.
