I really don't understand why mask are not required in the casino but everywhere else inside. Am I missing something here?  

They are not required in the Vaccinated zones

I think because it’s a vaxxed only venue. And from what I read on the daily planner was that a lot of indoor venues were *everyone (vs vaccinated) and required masking.

That should be right, same here for our 12th...booked Thursday test.  I wish they'd just tell you which day in an email so everyone gets it right!

Our CVS in Florida only schedules appointments 2 weeks in advance, so need to wait until the 3rd or 4th week of August to get ours scheduled. Were you able to schedule yours now where you live?

Main  Dining Room menu can be found on the Royal App on your phone for your sailing right now. You would just need to download it to your phone.

Menus are on the app


I have been in that darn app every day for the past month or so and have only been able to get the “We’re busy planning the fun……” message. Some days, I’ve only been able to get into out 2022 cruise! I’ve updated, refreshed, deleted, reinstalled. Finally got it to show our cruise for this September. After seeing both of your posts just now, I went back there and surprise! There’s the menus! Thanks. Some days we like, some days, well, we may want to make alternate plans.

We are in a suite. Coastal kitchen is as great as always. 
ship is in great shape. 

Are reservations for CK dinner easy to get?

We’re in Florida and got our reservations at CVS online 2 weeks in advance. Many around us were filled immediately, such as the one that’s a mile away, so we are going a bit out of town where it’s not as populated. Our local CVS told me reservations open at midnight and are filled immediately, and that was for 2 weeks out!

We are in a suite on the 8/22 Allure cruise. How long before your cruise did the concierge email you to get your preferences?

Correct, I called and talked to the lady in charge at Walgreens and she said, no problem, no crowds here, I told her I was worried about that and that timing is critical for us, and she told me to schedule online a week ahead...so actually not on the books yet.  I expect Florida is just inundated due to cruisers that are scrambling.  I am going to go online next week and keep track and as soon as Thursday  is open pencil us in.  Then we plan on trying to get the Rapid in Florida at our friends Tampa area CVS so we may have 2 just in case.  He's responsible for getting us on their list for Saturday.

 

That's all we can do I guess...I wish RCI had some way of submitting the results online before the cruise....so at least you don't show up at pier and they say, "Oh these won't work!"😵

We didn't bring anything for the other crew (should have!) but now are really going to try to get more at one of the ports!

We are taking Walmart gift cards.  A steward once told us they love those cuz then they can buy what they like.  Much easier than trying to pack a bunch of stuff.  And nobody else can take anything from them.

CASH is even better..they can spend it anywhere they choose.

My DH is having the exact same issues on his phone. Did all booking appear after you deleted and reinstalled? Not being tech savvy, we weren't sure what we needed to try.

That happened to me twice and I just deleted and re installed the app.

The CVS literally right across the street from us doesn't do the rapid antigen tests, so we are going to a CVS about three miles away. We reserved our appointments the day that they opened up the 8/19 date. I just went out and checked, and that CVS still has appointments available for the 19th. I guess it all depends on the demographics of an area. Where we live there are a lot of cruisers - three miles away, not so much.

The casino is a vaccinated only space.  It's the same as a vaccinated only show where you don't have to wear your mask as I understand it.

We are on the 8/15 allure sailing and got our concierge email today.  

Thanks, we are on the 8/22 so we will look for it next week.

 

Now, if anyone knows the name of the head chef in CK…

Thanks for all the info. My Wife and I are deciding if we will cancel our September cruise on Allure. I know Royal are trying to get sailing going but much of the protocols make no sense whatsoever.

Any idea what the hours on the FlowRider are, and what restrictions are in effect there?

You need to put one of those Flow Riders at your house, you would save money rather then buying cruises.................

Have you priced one?  I am pretty certain, that Mrs xpcdoojk would not approve.  

 

I am waiting for our friend Andrew to build one in Ontario, and when I retire, I am going to park my future Airstream in his yard for at least a few weeks every summer.
