    Combine BOGO & Additional Dining Package?

    Yes there have been reports of a couple people doing this.

    I thought Dogs weren't allowed?

    Taking other's kids off the ship

    So based on a couple of different experiences the answer is about as clear as Royal always is. It varies based on who happens to be working security. Based on that I would make sure to have the proper documentation.

    Solo trip. Double points.😁

    And those would be? I read of no exceptions in the press release that Royal issued.
  7. On the site that travel agents use 9179 is NOT connecting. The pair of cabins forward of it are (9175, 9177)

    Most have a sofa. Some connecting rooms may have a chair instead of a couch. It sure if that applies to the Indy though.

    When part of a party cancels

    Just to add to the above. One name from the initial reservation must remain on the booking.

    When part of a party cancels

    While it does state in their website that name changes can be done up to 24 hours in advance I would be more comfortable doing any changes 72 hours in advance. https://www.royalcaribbean.com/faq/questions/electronic-cruise-documents Royal Caribbean provides complimentary electronic cruise documents (eDocs) for all guests. You also have the option to request printed cruise documents for $35 per document. Contact us if you require these documents to be reissued. Please note, however, that a reissue fee may apply. Names may be changed up to 24 hours prior to sailing provided one of the original names remains on the reservations.

    Hang your head in shame RC

    I know that what you stated about if a category A is not available they get offered a category B for the price of a category A however in my experience this bo longer happens. Speaking about Carnival, I know that they used to do this as there was an agent in our office that used to wait until all the lower category accessible cabins got booked then called and ended up with a suite category of an accessible cabin for the price of an inside. Carnival put a stop to this a couple of years ago. I’m not sure if Royal does this however I have not read any reports of them doing this recently.

    Booking when one person is TBD

    Just put down the name of one of your other kids. Name changes can be done up to 24 hours prior to sailing. No charge.

    I’ve found to to be 15 to 20 minutes before the cabin is released back to inventory.

    When part of a party cancels

    If you cancel the other guests before final payment and Royal refunds their money then there is a high probability that you will lose the cabin. Even calling Royal you will most likely get different answers from different people. If you really want that cabin and can absorb the cost then have the people be a no show and get their port fees and taxes refunded. As mentioned insurance will only pay out on the actual fare booked and if they try to claim insurance after final payment they may run into the insurance company not paying at all as they had a duty to mitigate their losses by informing the insurance company in a timely manner. You are between the proverbial rock and a hard place. One other point. Name changes can be done up to 24 hours in advance. If the other guests don’t cancel then it gives you time to try to find someone to take their place

    Guessing that the OP is from the UK where what we refer to as pack n plays and cribs they refer to as cots.
