  1. My March 26th sailing of the Empress was cancelled by RCCL on March 13. I took the FCC option. Received the FCC on April 6th. Yesterday, June 12th I finally received the refund to my Credit card for the port fees, taxes and prepaid gratuities. Still haven't received credit for the RCCL insurance.
  2. This might be good news for Florida sailings... https://www.porteverglades.net/port-covid-19-udate/?fbclid=IwAR1_-EEr2745v7sZDrDKe42JS47p1Nkpkw4cpcb2T9ah8a1QaAEdurfd0vc
  3. We love the dining plan and book it almost every cruise. Regarding over-eating, we find that now that we've done the plan a few times, we actually eat less because we know we can return another night to eat the other items on the menu rather than having the mindset that we need to order 2 appetizers on night because we like them both and don't want to choose between them!
  4. We are booked on this too and are hoping to sail!
  5. European cruises are scheduled for the week of Nov 11th. Dates often slip however.
  6. This happened to me on Monday and on Tuesday my pending bid was accepted and I was upgraded. Good luck!!
  7. I first was notified of bids available about 45 days before. We were in a JS and could bid on GS, OS, CLS and 1 bedroom AquaTheatre. OS, CLS and ATS were all min $700 and GS was $300. I looked up what cabin inventory was knowing I wasn't likely seeing a true quantity, but there were 15 CLS, 2 OS and 5 ATS, no GS showing available at that time. I don't remember for sure what the max bids were, but I think the GS was about $1250 and the others were around $4500. I bid $1000 on everything except the ATS that I didn't bid on at all. The GS rated a strong bid and the other just barely a fair bid. We were notified 13 days before sail date that we won a CLS. All cabins had shown as sold out for about 10 days prior to acceptance of our bid.
  8. My worries were for naught... we've been upgraded to a CLS our 1st ever Sky class cabin! So excited!
  9. Thank you for digging for this... not really the answer I was hoping for! 😋
  10. I was hoping they expired because my other bid was going to be accepted but they haven't processed it yet!! I thought maybe they expired because there were plenty of higher bids but it won't let me update them at all, even changing browsers and setting incognito.
  11. On the Royal up page where you can update your bid prices
  12. Has anyone bid on multiple rooms and had 2 bids expire but 1 still pending? If so did you end up winning the pending bid or did it eventually expire as well?
  13. I am bringing blank address labels with me so I can change the cabin number on my luggage tags in Hope that our bid is accepted after we leave home since I won't easily have access to a printer to print out new ones!😁
