  1. Not sure about next year. You could check the roll calls for now. This is what is on the CC info page: Royal Caribbean International Meet & Mingle Please Note: Royal Caribbean Meet & Mingle Parties will be PAUSED through the end of 2021 due to new social distancing requirements on board . Thank you for your understanding!
  2. They may eventually email you but we never received one for our Aug 30 sailing on Serenade. I found out because I saw that Tree_skier was able to register. I would not rely on anything IT related with Royal.
  3. 100% agree. You can't be sure you are actually getting an "upgrade" until you know what you have. Sometimes location and your view is more important than some extra room in the cabin.
  4. We're on Serenade in August for an Alaska trip. It is one we booked in 2019 for 2020 and subsequently moved to 2021. When they moved her from Vancouver to Seattle so they could sail they cancelled our Internet package. Again, we were originally on this ship and they never actually cancelled the cruise. They just moved her to Seattle and will depart one day later. Spoke with RC and was basically told there is nothing that can be done. I have to repurchase at the going rate. I emailed customer care at the suggestion of the rep I spoke with but haven't heard anything.

  6. It shouldn't be an issue for those of us that already received our Bill Gates microchip when we had the vaccine. Seriously though. The point isn't even turning your phone off while on the cruise. You are still giving away all of your information when you do use it so what good does turning it off on the ship do? We entered the Orwellian dystopia so long ago that the mounds of information already available on individuals is immense. Credit cards, Computers, phones, smart devices, your tv .......on and on and on.
  7. So we had Serenade out of Vancouver scheduled for August of this year. When they made the initial announcement regarding the status of the cruises we decided we would wait until June for an update before we took any action. We were pleasantly surprised with the announcement that the cruise would be happening out of Seattle now. We had also previously purchased the Voom package during the Black Friday sale. We received an email a few days ago that our Cruise Planner purchase had been cancelled. I called RC yesterday to see if it was going to be reinstated since I assumed it wa
  8. From the UK website for Serenade sailings. Vaccine Requirement Royal Caribbean guests age 16 and older must complete all doses of their COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days before their sailing. For sailings departing after August 1, the age requirement for vaccination will change from 16 to 12 years of age. Guests under the age of this requirement don’t need to be vaccinated and will receive a SARS-Cov-2 test before boarding. 
  9. They don't have any of the bookings available online yet. I also checked a short time ago. They have a sample itinerary shown but that's all so far. I think it was a copy/paste from Radiance because it still shows Victoria as a stop and I doubt that's going to happen. Not sure if we'll have our original itinerary or not. Wondering if the sail date is going to change too though. I took a quick look at Air2Sea and it shows the original sail date but doesn't let you look at flights. It also shows the day after and you can see flights using that selection.
  10. We were supposed to go out of Vancouver on Serenade at the end of August. Now we have to wait and see if they'll move us to Seattle and sail or if they'll just cancel those sailings that were scheduled out of Vancouver. Either way, it's nice to hear that we're getting closer to sailing again.
  11. I'll be curious to see if they move the embarkation point from Vancouver to Seattle for all of their Alaska ships. We were supposed to go at the end of August on Serenade out of Vancouver. If it makes it through the House, it will start getting interesting.
  12. They have both. It shows in the pricing whether it is or isn't.
  13. Big Rapids, Mount Pleasant, Grant, Newaygo, Fremont, Cadillac. Many of the small farming communities on the West side. Not arguing that folks aren't wearing them in many places, just saying that there are places where they are not. In the past 3 weeks I've been to the U.P., all through the Northwest Coast that you mention and over to the Tri-City area. For the most part, those places have people wearing masks. The communities I mentioned, not so much.
  14. I went to Vegas back in July of 2020 to celebrate my brother's 50th. Masks were mandated. Wore mine. Still had a great time because I enjoyed being with the people that we went with. Probably the smallest crowds we've ever seen out there. It was crazy to see the strip that empty. We'll be heading back out at some point this year for my daughter's 21st. If masks are still required then we'll wear them. For us, it's about spending time with our friends and family and masks won't prevent us from having a good time. We're also booked on a couple of cruises in September 21 and Ja
  15. Not in my neck of the woods. I would estimate about 1/3 of the people I see don't have a mask on unless the business directly enforces it.
