  1. Meh. I think that joke fell a little flat. 😝
  2. Where is the facepalm reaction for this post? 😉
  3. And only 473 days until we can cruise again!! What? Too soon? 😝
  4. 119 pages in and I finally have something to submit.
  5. See Chris Rock’s routine about eating at that kind of establishment.
  6. Given that, I would say you are making the right choice. Of course, the S. Caribbean routes are so much less crowded if you like ports.
  7. I preferred the original earlier in this thread 😁
  8. We liked Wonderland on Symphony but it’s a single trip kind of thing. More of a show than a perfect meal. There is a Playmaker’s on Symphony though.
  9. I think you will actually see both. But I do expect the existence of FCC will drive prices up. My guess is based on travel outside the US taking far longer to recover than travel within the US and the limited options will further drive cruise bookings (I am including cruises starting from the US in US domestic travel for this comment only). Further, issues with travel services provided by small businesses will further increase demand for cruises.
  10. Here is what I expect although, as mentioned previously it is all hypothetical. I don’t think even the cruise lines know. 1. Crew cabins will be single occupancy. To do that they will move crew into inside and ocean view cabins previously set aside for passengers. 2. Passengers will only be placed in cabins with balconies. 3. Due to the lower passenger count, expect fewer crew (less required). This will lead to some venues being closed or having reduced hours. 4. Demand will not be as weak as everyone thinks initially. There is pent up travel/vacation demand now. Late
  11. While I understand everyone’s anger at the prices, allow me to suggest another item that may be happening: a Royal IT screw up. Their pricing systems are dynamic and with no one cruising right now, it may just be a case where they are ignoring those systems so that can process cancellations , refunds, and credits while furloughing unneeded IT staff or contractors. since that is happening, the pricing systems are pegged to their highest possible value. Just an alternate theory.
  12. Sigh. I just read the title and thought there was some new, weird cabin type that Royal was introducing. 🤦‍♂️ And then I had to share 😁
