  1. Update: My room is now no longer available on the Wonder sailing! So either it is sold out, or they moved me to this room. Still no confirmation email though.
  2. I was thinking about those, but reports of morning noise turned me off. Sure, the staterooms and balconies are generic, but the location is not.
  3. I just called. They said my only choice is to wait until they assign a room, and then call to switch it. I specifically paid extra and did not pick a Guarantee room, since I wanted to pick the location. She also said that it's still possible for them to rearrange and put me back in my original room in a few days. Ultimately, I will need to wait until Oct 13th. I doubt I will be upgraded, as I am in a CP Balcony room. They will not sell out by Oct 13 for a May sailing, but the preferred locations may be taken.
  4. The room I booked on Allure is showing available on Wonder, same date and sailing 😒 ! This is not a promising start
  5. Have a great cruise! Looking forward to hearing all about it.
  6. Thanks, Hank, I did see the post above about the lock and plan on taking one excellent tip! We will likely board at Mestre, would there typically be room for luggage? Our timing is flexible, and we will be traveling on a weekday. What time of day would be the least busy? Also, is there a limit to the number, dimension and weight of luggage? I can't seem to find this info on their website, but I did see this 3rd party site (HERE). In Canada, there is a size and weight limit.
  7. Another question about luggage - Is there a limit to # of bags per person? We may have 3 bags total between the 2 of us, plus a "carry on " sized bag each. We won't need assistance, but were wondering what is allowed.
  8. It's funny, the 3 hotels I was seriously considering were the Carnival Palace, Olimpia and Hilton Garden Inn. We ultimately decided on the Hilton (have stayed here before), but would love to hear more about the other 2 in case we decide to change.
  9. It appears to be a random whim. I have been tracking my cruise prices, and the refundable adder varies week over week. At times, it was $0, and other over $300 pp. Same ship, sail date and room type.
  10. I was thinking the same thing. Everyone I know in Ontario had at least 6 weeks between Pfizer or Moderna shots, typically longer than that.
  11. I have 2 upcoming cruises booked, 4 days apart. I will be Diamond Plus after the first cruise, and would like my status updated for the second. I spoke to multiple people at Crown and Anchor and was told conflicting information by different agents: Impossible to recognize D+ on the second cruise, it takes 2 weeks to process OR I need to CALL C&A after the first cruise and talk to an agent. However I will be in Europe and he did not know the phone number to call. He was clear there was NO email address. OR Email the loyalty email (that she provided). This is the best way, do not call OR Talk to the loyalty ambassador on the first cruise, but they likely can't do anything since the cruise needs to be completed OR Talk to the loyalty ambassador on the second cruise, but that may take many days to validate, and will only go through by the end of the cruise. No joke, I was told all of the above. I am wondering if anyone has gone through this and how they achieved? I am thinking about doing a combination of the last 3...
  12. @MeHeartCruising Thank you so much for the detailed reply! That really helps a lot. I think we will plan to take the bus, unless we decide to go farther into town
  13. Interesting, thanks. How do they go about getting everyone off the ship, when it is a normal port of call day for the other half of pax? To be honest, we likely will leave in the morning but I am wondering about how it would work if anyone wanted to stay on
  14. We stop in Barcelona next year on Royal Caribbean. I have been reading much conflicting information about best way into town (Columbus monument) from port. I understand that RCL ships are docked pretty far from the port entrance, and that walking is not recommended. A bunch of websites (for private drivers!) make it sound like it is impossible to catch a shuttle or taxi into town due to excessive lines. What is the truth?
  15. Thanks, I understand they want us out of the room early, but can we hang out at the pool, for example, until noon?
  16. Booked on Allure in Europe next year, and there are 2 embarkation / debarkation ports: Barcelona and Civitavecchia. Those that don't debark have the day as a standard port of call. We plan on taking the trip out of Civitavecchia, so on the day we leave, half the ship will have the day in port. My question is: How late can we stay on the ship on our debarkation day? I imagine everything will still be open, unlike typical turnaround mornings. Has anyone done this kind of cruise?
  17. Thanks for all the replies! What you all are saying makes perfect sense, but who knows whether Royal Caribbean sees it that way. It's true that the Canadian/US border is still essentially closed and we do have the 2 week quarantine requirement at this time, but I imagine that will be lifted shortly as most people will be eligible for their first jab. I don't think many Canadians will have their second shot by early Aug though. My cruise is out of Florida, so I am definitely monitoring what's going on there. I wouldn't be surprised if cruises will begin by Aug.
  18. Thanks @firefly333. I am really hoping they cancel, but I know lots of people are hoping they don't! The best would be if they offer 100% refund for non-vaxxed pax, but I really doubt that would happen.
  19. I have a cruise booked for August that is now paid in full. Being Canadian, we will not all be fully vaxxed by our sail date. Have Royal Caribbean announced the policy for people who are ineligible to cruise due to non-vaccination? Any chance of a full refund? I would much prefer a refund or even L&S over a FCC.
  20. Thanks @robtulipe! That is a great shot, now I have a decision to make...!
  21. It's been a while, Jimbo! Great to hear from you, things are good, can't wait to be back on the seas 😄
  22. Thanks for the pix! To me, it does not look like the balconies are that much bigger on 7094 or 7092. Remember 9092 seemed much deeper. I have 7600 booked now
