We are Aug 15. So not sure if mine will go thru.

That’s going to be a close one... biting my nails for you.

Well, that pretty much toasts our B2B on Allure from July 11 to July 25. Now I'd like them to officially cancel the Allure July cruises so we can get our money back.

Me too!  Fingers crossed!! Already had two NCL cruises canceled, which is why I came over to this side!

I would love to know how quickly they can resume after the test cruises.

Maybe Royal is going to try an all vaccinated cruise before to get them sailing? Unlikely though. Just spitballing ideas.

I'm July 17 on Symphony.  Now let's see if RC will *NOW* cancel it.  This ship is definitely not sailing mid July.  

If RC doesn’t cancel those sailing before the end of the week, I no longer know what to expect at that point.

We’re supposed to be on the Symphony on Aug 7. Chances are low I suppose now that we’ll be going. I’d really appreciate it if they would just cancel on us so I can make separate plans.

Same here. I have one scheduled on Allure Aug 8 but that’s not likely to go as scheduled.

Guess that means all of July on Allure will be canceled ? I was hoping they would do the test simulated sailings earlier in July - we are booked for July 25 on Allure

I think it's a good sign that the crew will be on the ship and trained. My question is how long will the CDC stall it.

Pt Canaveral and Allure is promising

Article in the paper today says Carnival Mardi Gras is coming in tomorrow.  Article says there will be 5 ships in port tomorrow and lots of crowds.

Terrible customer service and PR by Royal and Michael Bayley.

 

Joyfully announce test sailings for 2 ships without first cancelling cruises in July and August and notifying customers affected. 

 

That announcement lacked any empathy or concern for paying customers who really thought they were sailing in July on those ships. 

 

I expected it because logistically it came impossible for Symphony to sail on July 17th, my sail date but i feel bad for those customers who are less informed and dont keep up with cruise news

Someone on Bella thread said Odyssey is coming in tomorrow as well. CRAZY
