Email from RCI


Recommended Posts

Have others received this email on recent cruises?
We leave on Oasis Saturday and got this today :

We are contacting you with important information regarding your upcoming sailing on the Oasis of the Seas on November 2, out of Fort Lauderdale. Due to recent government budget reductions, U.S. Customs and Border Protection staffing has been affected, creating a longer immigration processing time for departing guests, and the ship has experienced a later clearance time for arriving guests. Therefore, please do not arrive at the cruise terminal prior to 12:30 p.m. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation, and look forward to welcoming you onboard.

And we had this notification back in APRIL! And same results, arrived 10 ish, boarded 11 ish. No idea why they keep sending these bogus " notifications" out...but like a broken clock they do, until one week when the ship might be late and then, they might be right ;)

[quote name='RCI Cruisers 004']Yes, they have been doing this for several months nd there have been tons of posts on it. You won't have a problem with it tho. Another obozo glitch ![/quote]

Did you just blame a POTUS for this? No matter the party, that is pretty ruthlessly absurd.

[quote name='ahecht']We really need a sticky thread on these emails. This comes up every week. Yes, it's perfectly normal, no, you shouldn't change your arrival plans.[/QUOTE]

People don't read the stickies. They'll still start threads like this.
