  1. You must have forgotten that they added one or two scrubber stacks that fold down in the last drydock.
  2. The no kids is a very good thing. The pumped up charter fare, not so much.
  3. I heard that Royal did rapid tests for people that showed up at PC without a test results. This was from another passenger who witnessed it.
  4. The Staff Captain said 562 passengers were onboard. He did not say how many no shows. There were a lot of volunteer employees/passengers who stated this was their 3rd or 4th test cruise.
  5. All volunteers participating in this event will need to take a COVID-19 test (PCR or antigen) with an accredited test provider, such as a drugstore chain or diagnostic lab, no more than 3 days before arriving at the terminal for embarkation
  6. The Chase Sapphire card reimburses you for Global Entry if you charge it to their card. I took an L ride to the Custom's House in the dead of winter and did the interview. The guy waiting with me was from Indy,
  7. The antigen test is a quick result test. Some CVS's do it in the parking lot and you don't leave until you get the results.
  8. Late Sunday night/ Early morning Monday for the booking number/ room assignment. All reservations have to be made on the app once onboard according to the information sheet.
  9. The wife got the original volunteer email the other day. Got the Mariner email today. D+. The trouble is finding an appointment for the mandatory covid testing.
  10. Seems like a lifetime ago nowadays, but I'm sure a lot of people here know the answer. The Mariner would be the obvious and longest timewise Voyager Class ship he had, but what was it the last? I can't remember, but don't think it's the Mariner.
  11. Julie took another position with Royal and will not return to the Empress in the forseeable future.
  12. Allure was selling them on Day 4. Empress on Day 5.
  13. That's was what the rumor was. They also have the Symphony at the same time?
  14. That hangglider under the Allure sign is probably gettting removed during the amping.
  15. Julie is getting off on January 26th to take a different position with Royal. Great HD.
  16. Saw a couple of loungers fly off Deck11 and hit the Windjammer windows Tuesday. This was only the second time I've seen this. Usually they are pretty good about lashing them down.
  17. Saw some posts complaining about the ride in on Oasis Sunday.
  18. The Empress. The pool is drained, upper deck closed, no chair hogs.
  19. We've been literally bouncing around the sea between Miami and the Virgin Islands since Friday. I was wondering how the bigger ships are handling the swells which are up to 18' today. We are already going to be 3 hours late into San Juan.
  20. Maybe they weren't doing formal when Cuba was on the list, but doing them,now.
  21. It's Steve from Canada on the Empress, not Steve Davis. Steve from Canada started as CD on the 3rd of January. He was a CD on another line. His last name is Knisley.
  22. One formal, one dress to impress on Empress. Didn't matter either way. MDR packed all the time maybe because the food is pretty good.
  23. I went to get my 3 free spin tokens today in the Empress casino as was told by the cage person that the free spin slot machine was being removed next week and there would no more free spins for prizes. The Loyalty Agent knew nothing about this and was going to look into it. Perhaps another perk going to the wayside.
