  1. Can this discount be applied when you book Voom on-line? Or do you need to call to have it applied?
  2. Thanks everyone...and the chart is really helpful!
  3. Thanks! Are closed shoes required, or are sandals OK? Would rather not have to pack shoes...
  4. Are there any restrictions on the Northstar, like height, weight, clothing, shoes, etc?
  5. My sister, her husband, and I were booked and paid for. I was to be in one of the new solo cabins. He passed away suddenly a few months before the cruise. Royal was very helpful. They switched names on the cabins...put his name on the solo and mine on the one with my sister. Then we cancelled the solo cabin. We had insurance so the solo cabin was refunded. The customer service rep was very understanding...we never would have thought of doing it the way she did it for us.
  6. I had my travel agent put the gratuities on our cruise and when I got an updated confirmation from Royal it showed our total “paid” amount as less than we actually paid. It was correct on the previous confirmation. I called the TA and she said her copy from Royal showed the correct amount. She hadn’t looked at our copy from Royal because she assumed it was the same. She had to call Royal to have the amount corrected, and Royal then sent me a corrected confirmation. I ALWAYS keep a copy of each confirmation and then take the final one with us on the cruise just in case of any questions or probl
  7. Does anyone know how many formal nights there are on a 13 night cruise? TIA...
  8. I have 20 RC cruises under my belt and have never come across a military discount. Have had several seniors and one or two state ones, though.But I keep checking...
  9. Darn! Oh well, I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. We will be coming from Valencia so hopefully the schedule will allow a daylight passage. You would think they would want to do the transit during the day but I guess the schedule wins out.
  10. For anyone who has done a trans-Atlantic from Barcelona to the US, did you go through the Strait of Gibraltar during the day or at night? We are booked on Barcelona to Bayonne in September of 2020 and really hope we go through during daylight hours. I am asking this here because it isn’t really port-specific and I couldn’t find any other appropriate place to ask this questions. Thanks in advance!
