  1. Yes, the date to use the FCC was extended but the date to decide on whether to take a refund was reduced. Those sailings have until the end of 2020 to opt for a refund. The previous round of cancellations have until the end of 2021 to opt for a refund. I had a back to back scheduled in May, the first sailing falls under the first round of cancellations, the second sailing under this last round.
  2. I’m pretty sure it’s use it or lose it since it’s from the TA. Royal won’t convert it to OBC.
  3. No reason to spend money on skype when your carrier and phone supports WiFi calling. That might be cheaper for international calls but definitely not cheaper than free. As long as you’re calling US numbers, no additional charges for WiFi calling.
  4. No. WiFi is WiFi. It does not matter what WiFi you use.
  5. No one can predict that. Panama Canal itineraries are very popular, there may not even be anything available after final payment, much less price drops. However, who can say. With so many cruisers cancelling due to the Corona virus, even Panama bargains may be had.
  6. An Uber XL should accommodate 4 adults and luggage. I have used an XL for 4 adults and luggage several times with no issue.
  7. The coupon is for the value of one 24 hour period of surf. You can get surf + stream, you just pay the difference.
  8. Yes. It’s one of the “coupons” loaded on your sea pass card.
  9. The amount off a package is whatever the cost of a 24 hour period is which may be $24 or maybe not. On Liberty in December, a 24 hour period was still $20.
  10. No issue on my iPad but I do see it on my iPhone.
  11. Yes, every cruiser can set up their onboard account to their own payment option, whether it be credit/debit card or a cash account.
  12. No, you don’t have to do anything. Your points for the September cruise will be added about 7 days after your September cruise is complete and you will then be Diamond. Your January cruise will automatically reflect your Diamond status. As noted above, you will need to call if your Diamond balcony discount lowers your price for that Jan cruise.
  13. Since you have accessed to the SL, you aren’t missing anything but Liberty does use the Viking Crown Lounge for overflow. The servers will serve the Diamond drinks in the overflow area (and not limited to the 3 on your sea pass) but they don’t set up snacks in the overflow area anymore as the area is open to everyone.
  14. No, you can’t get the C&A discount when purchasing prior to cruising but it is still likely cheaper to purchase prior.
