  1. It's been nearly three weeks and the OP has not responded to your question but I too would like to know. Melandria's experience was at Langosta and I'm not familiar with Hacienda Tequila in the Puerta Maya or International port areas.

    We have not been to either so the only advice I can provide is this: Maya Key is close to the cruise port and Turquoise Bay is quite a long drive to the northeast (about 10-11 miles as the sea gull flys). If travel time is a concern, then Maya Key would be the choice. I'm sure others who have visited both will have more info for you. ETA: just saw your other thread on this topic and it appears you chose Maya Key, albeit for other reasons than travel time.
  3. Thank you for the follow up Mike! Good to hear that you can still select an arrival time only in the app and do the rest later, at leisure.
  4. Could well be. I think I've always heard it's pretty much tied to final payment date for the sailing but perhaps that has changed.
  5. So I would say that you're within final payment date so the TA's likely would have already returned their unsold inventory.
  6. In addition to Mema's explanation above, without know how far out your cruise is, the web site won't show you all the truly available cabins in any category. There will be TA holds which may be returned about 45-60 days out plus, I've never seen the RCI web site show you more than about 10 cabins as available. If it's showing none available, I would be very skeptical at this point. We got an RU offer for all the suite categories but in checking availability on the web site, only one of the five suite categories were showing available but yet we could bid on all five.
  7. Shows opened yesterday, 64 days out, was able to use both the app and the web site to get reservations that we wanted.
  8. Yea, those "New" states... they aren't so new so maybe the AI generated software didn't think it was relevant any longer. 🙂
  9. Agree. And since your check-in window is a week from today (or a week from last night at midnight, port time), I would be interested in knowing if the app still allows you to select arrival time without going through the prior traveler info step. Some have reported recently that you cannot do that any longer.
  10. True, that screen does show our check-in date accurately, I just hope the option to start check-in actually returns on that date.
  11. I did notice one interesting update on the app after I updated it this morning, the "Check-In" icon at the bottom of the initial page is gone. Previously, it was there but when you tapped it, the next screen said (paraphrasing) "check back closer to your cruise date." I hope it comes back when our check-in window opens.
  12. I too have had no issues all this week, contrary to what others mention above... until today. The web site forced me to change my password this morning ("User name or password not recognized"). I also had to login to the app using the new password. Sure hope that's it. 🤔
  13. I am going to guess that your check-in window has not opened yet and thus the message you're getting? FWIW, I always use a TA and am currently outside my check-in window and can't do much on my booking except pre-cruise purchases, etc. but I don't get the message you're seeing.
  14. I'm sure I will be corrected if this comment is inaccurate but last we used it, the shuttle is only day of cruise and only from airport to cruise port. So if you come in the day prior and are at a hotel, that shuttle won't be an option.
  15. There's another thread this morning (below link, perhaps you've seen it) where it's being reported that the skip ahead to do arrival time only in the app no longer works and you have to do all the check-in info prior to arrival time selection. Don't know if that's a glitch because of the issues RCI has had with the web site and app today or if it's a permanent "fix."
