  1. We are going on the Oasis and it's been awhile since we've sailed RCCL. Is dress slack and dress shirt ok for all of the dining venues or does he need a tie and jacket?
  2. I have an outside TA & their office has been closed and have a very limited staff working from home and I haven't been able to talk to anyone in person, so I called RCCL and told them I would like to do a L&S and they couldn't do it because, if it is with an outside TA, & the acct is locked, they even checked with their supervisor to double check. I am so bummed because there are only 2 cabins left in my category that I want to switch to & my TA said it could take up to 3 weeks because they are so backed up and are focusing on the cruises being cancelled now. Also on the other cruise right before it, we are switching from the Adventure to the Freedom next year (which is the Adventures replacement). On the Adventure, my category was a 6V, on the Freedom it looks like a 4V for the same catagory, will they do that (not sure if they even have a 6V)?
  3. Thank you, that is what I was hoping for!
  4. I have an excursion booked on a cruise that I plan on doing a lift and shift. I used $50 OBC and paid the rest with my Credit Card. If I cancel the excursion before I do the L&S, will they put my OBC back onto my reservation that I am switching? I read somewhere on these boards it is best to cancel purchases and excursions before you make any changes or cancel because you will get your money credited back to your card quicker.
  5. I can really relate to your debate. We have 2 cruises booked with one day in between. Canada/NE on October 8th (Adventure) & Bahama on October 18th (Oasis). I am trying to get in touch with our TA (office is closed and tried to email them to get back to me & no reply), so I called RCL 2 days in a row and was on hold for an hour & 15 minutes with no pick ups till phone went dead. I was planning on doing the lift & switch, but I am constantly second guessing myself. I really don't want to go this Oct, because if it does sail, I'm sure there will be extra precautions being in place, (don't want to wear a mask, take a chance of some ports not being open, and having the hot tubs and pools closed). What I really want is to get a total refund by them cancelling, but am afraid to take the chance. We also have a NRD, and I think the only way we will get the cash back for that, is if they cancel.
  6. We have a $500 NRD, if we were to cancel & take the FCC, is that split $250 pp or $500 that either one of us could use on our next cruise? Just wondering in case one of us isn't able to go on cruises anymore due to health reasons.
  7. I know right?! I better run to Walmart to clear them out, lol! 🩹🩹😷🩹🩹
  8. I have been wearing a mask since this all started, but when I went to Sams Club this week for my major grocery shopping I ended up pulling my mask down over my nose to breathe, but kept my mouth covered, my glasses were fogging up & couldn't see. I am so over these masks, but will continue to do so until it is safe. I don't mind when I am outside, as they don't fog as much and can tolerate it, but when inside stores, it's so annoying. If we have to wear a mask on the cruise, i'm paper punching a hole in the front of my mask that I can insert a straw to drink my cocktails and when it's not in use, I'll cover the hole with a little round bandaid, lol!! Hey, gotta do what ya gotta do, haha!😷🍹🤪🍸
  9. I'll paper punch a hole through my mask to insert a straw through and cover it with a round bandaid when not in use, lol!!😷🍹🍸🍺🏝️🤪
  10. I agree that there will be no summer cruises, but I am wondering about Sept & Oct & if they will bring the Oasis up to NJ for 2 months of sailing. I sure hope so, but now I have another concern, my husband is 67, a retired coal miner & has lung nodules in both lungs. He's not on oxygen or inhalers, but did have fluid around his lungs last year and was treated for that, but recovered. He's otherwise in great shape, exercises for 2 hours every day & then later in the day goes for a 3 mile walk, in way better shape than me! So, will they deny him boarding if he is under 70, but has a history of lung issues?
  11. So someone age 67 with previous lung issues not requiring O2 will be denied boarding?
  12. Yes, this whole thread is referring to 2020, not 2021.
  13. I am the OP & was just wondering if they are even going to bother bringing the Oasis to Bayonne if the summer cruises are all cancelled? We have a booking for October 18th, and I hope they are back in full swing by then, but to bring a ship here for just 2 months, not sure that is going to happen, who knows!
  14. I was hoping that if there is going to be a cancelation of our cruise, that they would make the announcement before I have to make my final payment. So are you saying, if RCL cancels the cruise, I can't opt for a refund, even if they cancel it before I make final payment?
  15. For those having FCC issued, I really wish they would honor the price we paid for the exact same cabin & sail month. The FCC of 125% isn't going to cover or come close to what I paid for my cabin.
