  1. I'm learning today my March sailing on Odyssey is cancelled. So far I've just put down my $1,000 deposit on that cruise. I have a cruise this November on Adventure and final payment is coming up. I still owe $1,000. 🙂 Does anyone have experience getting Royal to just move money from one sailing to another? Or will I have to pay the $1000 out of pocket, and then wait (forever likely) for the refund from Odyssey?
  2. Several JS's open on my upcoming Odyssey cruise. Would you pick one of the aft facing ones on deck 12, or those on the hump on 6 - 13 and why did you make your choice?
  3. Yeah... My excitement for this trip is waning.... First our 2020 cruise was cancelled and we lifted and shifted to this 2021, and lost our coveted cabin and changed routes Now no more Venice... If we do Venice then I have to figure out a way to get there as the ship is only doing transfers to Marco Polo airport not to Venice. and I still suspect Rhapsody may be swapped out for another ship. I've kinda given up on planning this cruise.
  4. We're Lift and Shifting... so I can't change categories.
  5. Yes 8596 is what we had this year... cruise cancelled... so we lost it. It's gone so the one next door is open and I think we'll take that
  6. I don't know about the deck 7. But I booked the deck 8 corner cabin 8596 for just my wife and myself without an issues. My travel agent warned me though, that SOMETIMES, RCI enforces it needs to be 3 people or more, so there was a chance they wouldn't let us have it. But she was able to book 8596, the corner cabin, for the two of us, without any issue. I would give it a whirl.
  7. Yes it's a J3. Yes' it's just the two of us.... they gave us the corner aft, with just the 2 of us with no issue Jimbo. I know many of you have specific aft cabins you recommend. I didn't know if there was another one I should jump for or avoid. That's why I asked. Heck who knows if we'll even be on Rhapsody.... and yes I'm hoping someone in one of those corner afts backs out. I'll keep watch.
  8. So.... had a great corner aft balcony (8596) booked on Rhapsody this summer that was covid cancelled. Picked out my new cruise for 2021, also on Rhapsody and both corner afts are gone. 😞 There's a million JS's available, just not the coveted corner aft. All the other aft JS are available.....8098, 8100,8202, 8600, 8598 But so are a number of JS's right by the centrum, which is an awesome spot to be on the vision class. Which would you choose? I know those vision aft corners are great, but are there any other vision aft's that are any superior than the others? Should I just not both and go back mid-ship? What say you ? and Why? And aren't you glad to get back to a post like this instead of refunds and lift and shifts and when will they start again? 🙂
  9. There are 3 quotes that stood out to me in today's call from RCI leadership.... 1) "We don't expect that... someday somebody blows a horn, and all the ships start operating right away. We think that it will be a gradual start, a little bit like society is opening up gradually." 2) "So we would imagine that we would start with fewer ships, and more likely to be more drive markets in the beginning, and then it would then evolve and grow from there." 3) "But certainly the newer ships have more public space per passenger. And would be heavily in consideration for the return to service, as well as other ships that we've modernized and having more venues on to." So... It's not like August 1, or September 1, All ships are going to sail as scheduled. Nope. Sure, we might be sailing again in September, or October but it's only going to be a couple ships and it's probably not going to be where they're currently scheduled to sail. Newer and Bigger ships are most cost effective and allow easiest social distancing.... and RCI believes travelers will people will still avoid being in an enclosed space like an airplane.... but may be willing to cruise... so lets make the ships easier to drive to. If all this holds true.... I think we're going to see the Oasis, Quantum class ships and the recently amped ships (Indy, Navigator,Mariner) deployed around the country, rather than concentrated in South Florida. Divide them up first between... NY/NJ, Orlando, South Florida, Texas, Seattle... Then places like Baltimore, Norfolk, Boston, Charleston, New Orleans. The fleet may get entirely reassigned for a bit... which will play havoc for those cruises we have booked this winter. Again all guesses, but that's what my brain came up with when I read these quotes.... What about you?
  10. Sigh. Ok. Thanks for the advice! Always appreciated.
  11. So basically it has to be another 6 nighter, same area within a month. There's only one sailing that meets that criteria. Only 1. That would be my only option? I'm going to have to argue that one! lol
  12. I actually have one problem, Jimbo. I'm hoping they overlook. My Rhapsody cruise this year is a 6-nighter. In 2021, all their Greece cruises within a month of my sailing are 7-nighters or more except one. Just one 6 night. Hope they don't try to force me on that one. If they don't, we'll be very happy about the change.
