  1. I agree. I do not think there will be any upgrades until the next dry dock. They certainly do not want to take her out of service once sailings resume and they start making money again.
  2. I do enjoy the side CL but, if budget is an issue than book a GS for less. Did not care for the AT higher suites. It was too noisy. All the amenities are the same and then you can budget for extras. The only thing that was different is we received a bottle of champagne from the hotel director in the CL. Even though you say your Star may be out of price range, if you are purchasing the UDP, and Beverage package, it may be better to look at STAR. Keep in mind the grats are also included. Things to watch out for getting a good price no matter the suite: 1. Look at goi
  3. This above. I found that the genie was surprised I didn't want to see all of the shows and she convinced me to. Although I will have to admit, I did get to see them from a different perspective. Sitting in the front row was definitely different then the normal suite seats. I am normally very happy with coastal kitchen, so I don't buy the UDP or drink packages since I can grab wine and water in the lounge. I am booking with my family and then with my best friend and her husband. The husband has never been on a cruise, so for them it was a no brainer to share the A1.
  4. Those Oasis prices were really good when they were first released. Since it is getting close to new releases in the fall/early winter there should be some great deals.
  5. The lowest I have seen pre covid was 3500.00 pp on Allure.with diamond plus discount. Had a star loft for 3800 pp on oasis with diamond plus discount. I had an ocean panoramic in the presidents cruise for 4100 ppl with diamond plus discount. booked a lift and shift in an a2 for 11 k for 8 people. There are deals are out there. I booked a n oasis A1 for Jan 2022 When the first came out for 3551 with diamond plus. I didn’t include taxes in these numbers though.
  6. My husband has lots of vacation banked now that we are not traveling due to covid. This is the first time we have tried a b2b. We have to get off in Miami and head to Fort Lauderdale. We want to go to Australia on a long trip so this is testing the waters to see if we can be cruising for 15 days straight before spending a lot of time and money.
  7. We are on March 26th. We board after the Symphony sailing on March 19th.
  8. Not anymore. They pulled up the rope due to Covid. My daughter went to ring the bell when she moved out this summer after finishing her degree and the rope is gone. She did get to walk under the Arches though.
  9. Good to know. I was curious as to how it would work from Empress. Glad I didn’t take the chance and stick with the Os.
  10. That may be the issue since there is no corresponding cabin to be cut and dry. Good luck! Hopefully you will get a sc
  11. What was your original cabin on Empress Rs or Os?
  12. My Odyssey was a OS suite swap. However, another couple wanted to go and the Odyssey only has 2 OS on the ship and the other one was not available. They would have been fine with a GS My TA said booking the Empress Os to Odyessy GS would be risky since he had to call and do it and they may not "downgrade" the suite. They did not want to take a chance and get a FCC since they had 2 huge ones from Viking river cruises. Maybe the OS are not available on the sailing you want. I have been able to l/s the 2020 Presidents Cruise SC from Barcelona to a 2021 Anthem from Sout
  13. This happened to me initially with my TA trying to do it through Royal CSR , then it appeared in the options for him to l/s and he did it with out a problem.
  14. In an OS? I am on 1/2 but l/s from an Allure sailing in an A2.
  15. I did a lift and shift from Empress to odyssey mar 2022. 8 night.
  16. That’s the thing. The prices were not as high as normal. Not sure if it was because the sailings were announced After initial deployment or because the itinerary isn’t that great.
  17. I am booked in a gl as well and contacted corporate. I wash assured via email that Quantum will have Royal Suite class. Although my invoice does not look the same as other Star invoices
  18. So Quantum and Ovation are booked for Alaska in 2022. I got a great price on Quantum and was concerned if they wouldn’t sail if we could lift and shift to 2022 if the program is still active.
  19. They actually take your bags from the hotel.
  20. If it’s a kids sail free sailing make the 3 rd person a child.
  21. Looking at the deck plans there looks like there is a change to the number of Owner Suites from its sister ships. Does anyone have a confirmed number of OS on Odyssey?
