  1. I’ve never had an Oasis class ship start disembarking that late from Ft. Lauderdale or PC. ONE time it started as late as 7:00. It’s worth the risk. Worse case they can take the other flight.
  2. You most definitely can get the cost to the penny if you are from the USA. Go to the website, pick the cruise put in your C&A #, state and any other qualifiers, (police, military, etc) Example: You are given an inside cabin for 2. Most cabins for 3 or more cost more on the base price no matter the cabin type. It’s not that much more, usually less than $50 for an inside cabin that holds 3 or more. If you are given a free inside, put in 2 people the first time looking with all your information. Choose the lowest inside price that is NOT a GTY. Write down the total cost. Go back and this time put in 2 adults and 1 child with C&A, etc. Pick an inside cabin, (you can now choose GTY if it is the cheapest). Look at the total. Subtract the 2 costs. This is the the cost to add a child including port charges. The first total is what you subtract from any cabin you might want to upgrade to. If you are Platinum or higher it is sometimes cheaper to upgrade from a free inside to a balcony for 3 people because of the balcony discount. If they later on have a “kids sail free” promotion, you can reprice your cruise. If you have any questions about the above instructions or need help, I’ll need to know your C&A status, (NOT your number), state and any qualifiers with the ship and sail date and I can give you a very close cost if not exact. Good Luck
  3. I was slow to put 2+2 together. I’m letting the admins of the two groups know and will be calling our county commissioners tomorrow. From our research, we are the only county in Florida that has any group, let alone 2, started in 2020 and continues to help to this day. Cor***vir** Mutual Aid and People helping People. Brevard, itself needs a testing site like last year. Hopefully, I’ll find out they are working on it.
  4. Thanks for clarifying. I hope Brevard County takes whatever action they can to stop this. Our county free health department has become overwhelmed since cruising has started. This wasn’t a problem before August. I’m in 2 different groups in Brevard County that help people that are struggling. Multiple posts, daily begging for information on where to get tested for free. These are people without health insurance.
  5. Because we have people that are sick in Brevard County that don’t have insurance and have nowhere to get tested. The person at CVS yesterday flat out told me that they are booked up within mins. of the opening window, mostly for travel. FYI: Many people live in Florida or fly in early. They could set it up on Thursday for Sunday cruises and Friday for Monday cruises and Tuesday for Friday cruises. Why are you assuming everybody would want to get tested at the pier? I am more than willing to get tested on my own, but there are NO appointments. Most everyone flying in or driving a long distance would prefer to get tested near their home. Let’s give Brevard County a break, if you don’t have an ID address for Brevard County, you can’t get tested at Walgreens or CVS. Problem solved. I have insurance, so I’ll go to a walk in clinic on Friday.
  6. Thanks. I should have clarified, free or low cost. I’m not paying $$$ for a test. Royal should do this for a nominal fee of $25 pp
  7. Good luck. I’ve checked all the Walgreens and CVS’s within 150 miles from PC and there are ZERO appts available for Friday. I need it for Monday.
  8. Thank you for ANSWERING the question without commentary.
  9. I have tried using the search feature for this to no avail. Someone asked me and I can’t find it. Besides the answer, please list what I should have put in for each category under search. 😊
  10. If you get Star Class, your Genie will take care of it if you don’t get notified with 48-72 hours before sail away. Usually, you can cancel any extras beforehand up until they close the manifest.
  11. If you change yourself from a balcony to a JS, how long does it take for Royal Up to resend out the new minimum bid pricing?
  12. Thank you so much. Excellent news. No need to write MB over this concern. The soda and water from 11-11 is important to me.
  13. Since you are on deck 17, please run in and order a beer, wine or soda when you are not eating in CK and Not during the cocktail Hours. If they say no: Ask if you can pay for it? (I’m not asking you to pay). Just want the answer. Im trying to see if they are denying what has always been for the SL. If they will let you pay, but not give it for free, I want to be aware as I have a cabin on Deck 17 in September.
  14. Can you go to the SL and get a beer, wine, soda or water from 11-11, exclusive of the cocktail hour and eating in CK?
  15. Curious: Are people getting them back faster if they have Global Entry? I just renewed my G.E. It took less than 48 hours to be re-approved. G.E. is for 5 years and your passport number is part of the process. My passport will expire before my G.E. does. I wonder if when I re-new my passport will it come quicker because I have G.E.?
  16. This is unacceptable. The cost of suites on Oasis class are expensive. I hope every suite guest gives a poor rating about this 11-11 fiasco. So.... Can I pay for a drink? So ... is the bartender there to get drinks for people eating? If I can pay for a drink in the SL, they can hand me one for free if in a suite. Will someone clarify this for me? Can I pay for a drink, but not get one for free unless eating in the SL? Thanks
  17. Who are the Casino Hosts? There are usually two on an Oasis class ship.
  18. Was she treated differently because the 14 days hadn’t passed, or did they use common sense and consider her vaccinated?
  19. I think you are correct. For Royal a Pinnacle with 750 points that is Signature or Masters in the casino is better for the bottom dollar than a Pinnacle with 1500 points and not even Prime in the casino. I’m guessing any Pinnacle with over 3000 points also got invited if they weren’t already cruising on the Adventure or Freedom. Just guessing.
  20. Before the pandemic: Actually, getting off between B2B cruises to do laundry at a laundry mat in PC or Ft. Lauderdale was easy. You can find many people who drive to the port that would drop you off at the laundry mat. Uber or cab back. Both cities have laundry mats less than 2 miles once you get out of the port area. Easy Peasy.
  21. Did you get a chance to get the names of the casino hosts, SL and DL concierges?
