  1. I've read the "updated" section under captain's club and it doesn't mention anywhere that roomates will no longer be allowed. I kind of like the idea of the welcome event being held outdoors .. depending on weather of course!
  2. Thank you! Now, I'll just have to wait and see what changes take place once cruising restarts... and I can imagine there will be changes.
  3. Warning! Thread Hijack... But I thought this would be a good place to get some answers 😉 I'm an elite member and in the past I was able to bring my non-elite member roommate to elite functions (fully allowed - not sneaking or cheating the rules) is this still allowed? Or more accurately was this still allowed before cruises stopped last year? Just wondering if we'll be able to take advantage of this on our girls cruise next spring. With the all in promotion the only thing we would really use would be the coffee house breakfast. TIA
  4. We're going!! Come join us on our roll call..
  5. yes, we were willing to go... if I cancelled then no chance...
  6. Us too! Made our final payment, completed online checkin, ready to go!
  7. We paid ... and are still not giving up on 12/20/20 Caribbean Princess.. used FCC from cancelled spring break cruise but still out $$$. It took Forever to get back our $$ for taxes on the cancelled cruise. If the ship sails with passengers, we'll be on it! I guess I'm not totally convinced we'll actually be sailing because I haven't completed the online checkin.. or ordered our medallions... usually I do that as soon as possible.. I'm ready to go...
  8. We were on the Royal June 1st 2109 southbound from Whittier to Vancouver. We didn't miss any ports and found the Royal to be a great ship for Alaska. Yes, the on deck space is more limited but we never had any problem finding space at a railing even in glacier bay. We had an inside room so we spent lots of time out on deck. We had no problem docking at all ports, no tenders. We did cruise Glacier Bay and Hubbard Glacier but cruise ships don't dock there anyway. I'm glad we didn't listen to all the naysayers who said we would miss ports and the Royal was not a good ship for Alaska. It worked out perfect for us. My avatar picture is from the Royal in Glacier Bay... it was awesome!
  9. We are booked Nov 20th 9 night Southern Caribbean Explorer of the Seas!! Not giving up hope. Really want to go.. even if we just float around for 9 nights!! Coco Cay or Labadee would be a bonus - we are scheduled to go to Labadee anyway. According to the website this would be the Explorer's first cruise back in service.
  10. Yes, they had soft ice cream outside by the pool on deck 10. The first part of the cruise they had vanilla and chocolate but at the end they broke out the strawberry!! Since the Empress is so small when the Windjammer is closed the ice cream is the only free option - not that I ever went hungry. We loved the Empress and would sail on her again in a heart beat. The library had daily word and soduku and they cruise staff held trivia several times a day usually in the Schooner lounge. It would be really neat to be able to sail into St. George - we've only docked at King's Wharf and taken the ferry to both St. George and Hamilton. Enjoy your cruise!!
  11. Thank you for the article. This confirms what was posted on our roll call by someone who is on a B2B2B. Safety first... but I'm crossing my fingers for calmer seas and winds next Wednesday ☺️.
  12. She was scheduled to be in Virgin Gorda from 8am to 7 pm. It would totally freak me out if we got off the ship and did whatever we were planning then went back to the tender location to find out the ship was gone and it was only 3 pm!! Hopefully everyone onboard was notified of this change before she arrived in Virgin Gorda this morning.
  13. Yes, Virgin Gorda is specified on the itinerary for the Jan 3rd sailing and the Jan 11th sailing.
  14. The Empress of the Seas was scheduled to be in Virgin Gorda today and appeared to moored offshore this morning however she is currently shown as docked in Tortola. Just wondering why? Maybe seas to rough to tender? We sail on the Empress on Saturday and going to Virgin Gorda was one of reasons we chose this ship and sailing.
  15. We were on the Explorer over Thanksgiving and the helipad was open just about all cruise (it was closed the last sea day because they were painting it). Definitely go out at night - awesome place to see stars!! It is one of our favorite places. They will close access to the helipad if there are high winds. Also, go and check out the peek-a-boo bridge. It is located on the pool deck -with access from the solarium. We are disappointed that it will be removed during the upcoming refurb. We've really enjoyed it on this class of ships.
