  1. Just wondering what everyone's thoughts are regarding gratuities? Some major cruise lines have already increased their rates, and Royal Caribbean could be next. Do you usually just tip the crew member directly, such as the room steward, or just go with the automatic rate the cruise line charges from the onboard account?
  2. Hi everyone, just thought I would let you all know about the big change to testing announced by Royal Caribbean Group. Starting from August 8, 2022, vaccinated guests won't have to do a pre-cruise test on the shorter sailings. All the details will be released by the cruise line on the week of August 1. What do you think of the change? We're gradually getting back to some normality.
  3. Hi @Madison Cruisers, so sorry that you've been impacted by this. Are you able to post the letter or communication they sent you?
  4. Hi @FJB, thanks so much for the comment and glad you're enjoy reading the latest unbiased cruise news. Our forums are new and have only been active since the end of last year, so it will take some time for them to grow. We haven't even promoted our forums at all yet and have plenty of ideas for the future too. Thanks again for your post and all the best! 😁
  5. Hey @susank12, I think your best bet would be to get the train from the Venezia S.Lucia station in Venice, but you would have to change trains in Ferrara. Hope that helps! The cruise line shouldn't be giving you the running around like that.
  6. Carnival Cruise Line has not announced anything yet for the June 20th cruise. So far it's just the May 28, June 2 and June 6 sailings. We'll have to wait an see how the repairs go for more cancellations.
  7. Hopefully, it will all be fully opened soon. The article is correct the as the company which runs White Pass & Yukon Route got in touch with Cruise Hive directly.
  8. Hi @Susan G, I'm sure there are roll calls online that could help you meet your fellow cruisers. That could be a feature we might add to the boards if there was enough demand.
  9. Hey @REBECCA, that's a great question! Don't think I've ever seen a cruise line do a political related charter cruise. My guess is that if cruise lines can do nude cruises, then don't think politics would be an issue. I guess it would depend for each line.
  10. I also agree, I think it's going to be a while before they bring it back. Too many other things to deal with.
  11. If there is an itinerary change, Princess Cruises will no doubt send out a communication to impacted guests. Are you booked on that sailing?
  12. You'll have to ask them that. It all remains very fluid.
  13. Apart from a few limitations with shore excursions, the Alaska cruises are all good! Alaska is well and truly back!
  14. Hi @David W., you mentioned you upgraded seats, are you relating to your flight rather than the cruise? Even though they sent you a communication, I would try calling them.
  15. @Mark Chance, not long to go until your cruise, all set for it?
