  1. • NEW! Lift and Shift - Lift and Shift is for those guests simply wishing to move their existing booking to next year. For CWC guests that are ready to move to an alternative sail date in the following year, we’re happy to price protect the original pricing and/or promotion if the alternative sailing is the same itinerary, length, and stateroom category. However, the alternative sail date that the guest will be moved to, needs to be dated within 4 weeks (before or after) of the original sail date, but for the following year. For example, if you are moving from a July 30, 2020 sailing, you must move to a sailing that is the same itinerary, length, and stateroom category, and the sail date should be June 30, 2021 – August 30, 2021. To be eligible, guests must move their booking on or before August 1, 2020. https://www.royalcaribbean.com/cruise-with-confidence
  2. I have hand sanitizer to use when my power is out (well pump, so no water). Just used it last Thursday / Friday since power was out for 20 hours. 😞
  3. You can renew an expired passport if it meets these conditions: Yes, but the passport must have been issued within the last 15 years. In addition, you must also have the passport in your possession, the passport cannot be damaged, you must have been age 16 or older when the passport was issued, and it must have been issued in your current name or you must show legal proof of your name change.
  4. But you still have to book by December 31, 2021. "As a result of this change, we’re providing you with a 125% Future Cruise Credit to come back and sail with us by April 30th, 2022. Please re-book using your FCC by December 31, 2021."
  5. Assuming you are an employee, would you be OK with your employer delaying your pay for X days/weeks/months? After all, these are unprecedented times.
  6. Maybe they will offer "bonus" OBC if you choose to sail on the un-AMPed ship or offer 125% FCC / full refund if you choose not to sail. They are currently offering those options for CA/NE itineraries that are changed due to CA port closures.

  9. Just received this email for my May 15, 2020 cruise: ABOUT YOUR UPCOMING TRAVELS Dear Guest, As global regulations and port restrictions continue to change amid this health situation, we are all facing, we know you’ve probably been wondering about the status of your upcoming Adventure of the Seas May 15th, 2020 sailing. The Canadian government implemented a new travel restriction on cruise ships carrying more than 500 people, which unfortunately means, we can no longer sail there. While we know this is disappointing, we must respect each country’s decision to evaluate cruise ship and guest entry, but we know many of our guests are eager to go on vacation or need a vacation at this point, no matter where. As a result, we’ll now sail to Kings Wharf, Bermuda – keeping in mind that the ship itself is quite the destination! We’re sorry for any inconvenience caused by this change, but we’re more than confident you’ll have an excellent time with us. Below, please find our revised itinerary. Given the situation and the change of itinerary, below are some options we’ve prepared for you. Option 1: If you choose to sail, we’ll provide you with a credit to spend onboard! $250 USD for Interior, Ocean View, and Balcony staterooms | $450 USD for Suites. This credit is refundable and can be used anywhere onboard. Any unused amounts will be refunded back to your credit card on file about 3 - 5 business days after the sailing ends. Any pre-paid Royal Caribbean International shore excursions for the original ports of call will be refunded back to your original form of payment in the next few days. Then, feel free to browse all the exciting shore excursion options for your revised sailing in Cruise Planner! Option 2: If you want to sail with us a little later, we’ll provide you with a 125% Future Cruise Credit to come back and sail with us by December 31, 2021. This amount will be based on your total cruise fare paid. And, we’re giving you a little extra, knowing that this is such a unique circumstance. We will automatically issue you your Future Cruise Credit by Saturday, May 30th, 2020 via email. So, there’s nothing for you to do! Taxes & fees, Cruise Planner items, and any RoyalUp upgrades will be automatically refunded. You can expect to see these in 30 days after you submit your request. If you purchased refundable air or hotel accommodations through Royal Caribbean, they will be automatically refunded to you. If you booked non-refundable air through Royal Caribbean or booked on your own, please contact the service provider directly for your options with them. Please note: If you opted into the Cruise with Confidence 100% Future Cruise Credit for this sailing, you do not qualify for this offer. And, if you used a Cruise with Confidence certificate on this sailing, you’ll receive a new Future Cruise Certificate for 125% of your total cruise fare value paid, including the value of your original certificate. If you were impacted by our global suspension (sailings through May 11th, 2020), and paid additional monetary funds on your current booking, you’ll receive two 125% Future Cruise Credits: one for the original booking and another equal to 125% of any monies paid towards cruise fare on this reservation. You are able to opt in to refund one or both via the process below. Option 3: If you choose to cancel for a full refund, we’ll be sad to see you go! We’ll process a full refund of any paid portion of your cruise fare to the original form of payment, including any non-refundable deposit. If you purchased refundable air or hotel accommodations through Royal Caribbean, they will be automatically refunded to you. If you booked non-refundable air through Royal Caribbean or booked on your own, please contact the service provider directly for your options with them. You can expect to receive your refund 30 days after you submit your request. Please note: If you used a Cruise with Confidence certificate on this sailing, and you request a refund instead, we’ll refund any NEW funds paid above the certificate amount, and we’ll reinstate your original Cruise with Confidence certificate. It’s important to us that you find the best vacation option and we want to give you as much time as possible to decide on what best fits your needs. To avoid waiting on the phone, we ask you to please click here and we’ll get the process started for you right away! Please advise us of your decision by April 13th, 2020 to ensure we process your request prior to your sailing. Lastly, your health, safety, and well-being continue to be our highest priority. Over the last few weeks and months, we’ve implemented new, temporary safety precautions that include health screening protocols on embarkation day for our entire fleet.

Should these change prior to your sailing, we will email you and your Travel Advisor directly.
