  1. Just to confirm my understanding, this means we can rebook a cruise that was cancelled on us right now and not pay any deposit until May 31, 2020 - is that correct? Does anyone know what the refundable deposit is? With everything that is going on in the world, I'm leaning to book refundable deposit to I can cancel and get money back rather than FCC. Can I use my FCC to pay for the deposit too? Thanks all and keep safe.
  2. My family was scheduled to cruise on the March 15th Harmony cruise but we cancelled a week before the 48 hr cutoff time for FCC. As this cruise is now officially cancelled by RCI, can we change from a FCC to refund? We're worried we won't be able to use the FCC as they only give you until Dec 31/2021. Any chance RCI may extend the expiry date longer, say 2 or 3 years to use. How does everybody else feel about that? Has anybody who cancelled earlier on one of the affected cruises consider requesting a refund instead or getting the higher FCC? Thanks.
  3. Ren - thank you so much for taking the time to post the Compasses and the departure times - very helpful!
  4. Great review! My family will be on Harmony sailing the same itinerary in March. Do you by chance have the daily Compasses for this itinerary? If so, would you be able to post? What was the price of the Native Choice tour that you took in Costa Maya (if you don't mind answering)? Is this a private tour or through RC? I've read somwhere that you can't punch the Seapass cards on Harmony, is that correct? If so, I'll have to get another type of lanyard. Is the International Pier in Cozumel near downtown Cozumel or do we need to take a taxi or is walkable? Thanks for your help.
  5. Does someone remember the price for the basic Voom Surf Package for 1 device only on Harmony of the Seas for a 7-day cruise? Thanks.
  6. Great review as usual! Question: where did Harmony dock in Cozumel? Was it near downtown Cozumel? I didn't get to explore downtown Cozumel on the last trip so hoping the ship would be docking nearby and I don't have to get a taxi into downtown. Thanks for your helpful tips.
  7. To ADPMOM - I just finished your last Harmony review and have made notes of your tips for our Harmony cruise next year. When you have time or if you pass by the Vitality Cafe, can you see what food options they have there and the opening times. I'll be on Deck 6 and thought it would be convenient for breakfast if they have oatmeal. Thanks so much!
  8. Danish viking - thank you so much for your input. I hope you don't mind but I have a few more questions: (1) do you know if the bus stop is close to the Andersen Hotel or do we need to go back to the train station to catch Bus 25? (2) how frequently does the Bus 25 run on a weekday? (3) does Bus 25 drop off close to the cruise terminal check-in point? Is it the last stop? Thank you again for your help.
  9. I've been reading the various threads about taking public transport to and from the Copenhagen cruise port. I've booked the Andersen Hotel for next year and understand I can take Bus 25 directly to the cruise port. My question is does the bus have room for luggage storage if there are 5 of us and each have rolling luggage and carry on? I don't recall anyone mentioning luggage and how the bus handles it. Is the bus usually full going to the cruise port? Any input appreciated. Thanks.
  10. I will be travelling for the first time solo on NCL Bliss and have the following questions which I know fellow Bliss cruisers can answer: 1) If doing the race cars, will there be someone to take a picture? Can a person bring their cell phone and take a selfie? Will they allow you to bring a cell phone or small handbag into the car? I really want to have picture of me in the race suit and helmut to show everyone I got the nerve to do it! 2) Is there a sauna in the women's change room or just in the thermal area? I just got off Epic last month and was disappointed there was no sauna unless you pay for the thermal area. 3) Do they still provide body wash and hand soap in all types of cabins? I'm in an inside this time as I'm going solo. I know they have it in the balcony cabins on Epic. That's all for now. Thanks in advance for your help.
  11. lx200gps - thank you for that info. I'm sorry I worded that sentence poorly. I was aware of Super Shuttle and wondered if there were any other shuttles servicing the San Pedro cruise port for more options. If Super Shuttle is available, I will have no problems using them at all. Thank you for your input.
  12. I'll be disembarking a cruise on a Sunday and wondered if I need to book in advance a shuttle to take me to LAX or will there be shuttles waiting at the port rounding up passengers to LAX like in Miami. If not, any recommendations for a shuttle other than Super Shuttle. Thanks for any help.
  13. Thanks for your review of the good and bad of the Epic! Question - which side (port or starboard) is the smoking side on Deck 7? Thanks.
  14. Will be on a cruise in August. The ship is providing a shuttle which we pay to get us into town. Is that the where the first HOHO stop is? or is there a stop close by the Barcelona cruise port without going into town? Is so, which stop is it and how far? Thanks in advance for any help.
  15. For those who have sailed on the Epic out of Rome, can you tell me where they hold the luggage on disembarkation day. It is out in the open or is there a room where they hold the luggage. As I have a late flight out, I planned to stay on the ship until the majority of the passengers for early disembarkation and the cruisers heading into Rome for the day have departed to avoid the mad rush. I just wanted to make sure my luggage will be safe until I get off around 10:00am. I don't want it on the pier and have it mixed up with the luggage from new passengers coming on, etc. Thank you in advance for any help.
