  1. Buff - THANK YOU for your describing your experiences. It will help many! Yesterday I received an email from American Airlines recommending arriving three hours ahead of any international departures from Charlotte (CLT). It's not just Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS).
  2. Buff - were the AA kiosks not accepting frequent flyer numbers nor confirmation numbers? I usually use those instead of a credit card if using a kiosk. Was the line for business class running more smoothly?
  3. I keep watching for our August 28 Adventure cruise. No cabana prices have dropped yet. I'm ready to book, but not at $1,899 for the overwater ones.
  4. With two ships having turn around on the same day it could be crazy. I'm using Royal's transfer for that reason. Bags will be picked up outside the cabin and I won't see them again until baggage claim in the US. If you are concerned about connections in the US, book Five Star with American or VIP Select with Delta. (Or whatever service your particular airline offers.) They do an AWESOME job!
  5. As of Tuesday, June 15, 2021 at Walt Disney World, masks will only be required when on Disney transportation including buses, monorail or Skyliner. They ask that unvaccinated guests continue to wear masks. In North Carolina food service employees do not have to wear masks if fully vaccinated.
  6. Bird IS THE WORD! Can't remember if it was Celebrity or Princess, but muster was done in stateroom on the TV. In fact, you couldn't watch anything else until it was completed. Bon Voyage!
  7. UG - the return to US test is for commercial air passengers only. Return travel to the US via land or sea does not require a Covid test. I suggest reviewing the CDC.gov website prior to your cruise for any changes.
  8. As of today, per the TSA the face mask requirement for ALL transportation networks is in effect until September 13, 2021. Yes you will need to wear a face mask at the airport and on the plane this August.
  9. Kind of cheap for Crystal to charge for the test! Royal Caribbean is paying for the test on their Bahamas cruises. Surprised that Crystal is nickel-and-diming their guests.
  10. I would imagine that a transfer thru Crystal is your best bet. They should transport your luggage from the airport directly to your cabin. That is what Royal Caribbean is doing for their transfers. Taxi is about $40 with tip.
  11. FYI - those with Royal transfers will drop off their luggage at the airport, which will be brought to the ship and placed in cabin. Royal passengers will be checked in at the Hilton then bused to the pier for immediate boarding.
  12. Hawaii is set to go to ZERO restrictions once 70% are vaccinated. I plan on enjoying my reduced restrictions on Adventure! Thank you Bahamas for requiring vaccinations. Now if Disney cruise line would have adult only sailings...one can dream.
  13. I think it is great to have Coco Cay all to ourselves! August Adventure sailor here.
  14. Our flights for August 2021 to Nassau have more than tripled, $4,217.30 from $1,317.30!
  15. Interesting that Crystal has not yet defined the boarding times for the July departures. My Royal cruise in August allowed me to select a half hour time slot between Noon and 630PM, for a 9PM departure.
