    Not only are there zero announcements still, they haven't even updated the silly pool girl calendar thing for September yet.

    How are other non-American's faring with the currency rates?

    If it wasn't bad enough that flights to the USA in early January appear to be much more expensive than they typically are in late January, the exchange rate against the $USD keeps dropping :( The Australian Dollar exchange rate has dropped from 72 in April to 67 at the moment.

    That makes a $USD3,000 cabin $300 Australian dollars more than it would have cost 5 months ago :(

    For Canadians:

    Last year I got an interior quad for $766 - 10% + $423 taxes and fees, for a total fare of $1,112.40 USD. Divided into 4 equal payments at the time, I paid between $330CAD and $400CAD/mth.

    The same room this year, I'd be paying $371 at the current exchange rate.

    So... Par for the course for us Canadians

    ok now, suddenly the calendar pool girl (September) thing was just updated moments ago!

    Haha! I love it. You should post this in the FB group. Lot's of people are loosing their shit over the delay.

    I'm actually not worried, all my pre and post hotels and flights are booked. I'm the guy with the pitch fork that dumps more gasoline on the dumpster fire by posting "Whoa Whoa Whoa Jamie's Crying" in response, haha!

    Australian dollar has risen a cent against the US in the last 24 hours!

    (That makes a $3,000 cabin $100 cheaper - that's like 3-4 shirts or a bunch of beers!!!)

    HURRY UP AND SEND THOSE BOOKING CODES SO I CAN PAY MY MONEY BEFORE IT DROPS!!!

    Silence sucks - That's what Rollins Band had on one of their t-shirts in 1994.
    Let's have the end of this ridiculous silence already. Please!

    How in all seriousness can this be all organzied in 123 days?
    I only see complete chaos.

    Yeah!
    I decided it was worth the time and effort to go to an UAE exchange and get some American cash.
    Took the risk. Not fun to see it so low, still, but I reckon it might go back up to 69 again in a few days.
    I believe that if Australia had elected Billy in Labor, our dollar now would be at least mid 70's and even high 70's by January.
    Oh well.

    This is getting ridiculous, I don't even care about the band announcements but the silence always makes you wonder whether the cruise is going to happen at all, so you don't necessary want to spent your money on flights and accommodation for early January Florida holiday if the cruise doesn't happen. I've been going to the cruise every year since 2014 but this might be my last one because i'm getting seriously fed up how it works nowadays. There are a lot of festivals, who are willing to take my money months in advance. That way, at least, I can better plan my holidays, travels and everything else in life that needs organizing before these trips happen than trying to get everything in place mere weeks before the intended departure date.

    That's been my concern as well, and why I haven't booked any flights or hotel yet. I mean, we're all 99% sure it's happening, but there's that little nag in the back of my mind that wonders if something has managed to go sideways and they're just going to suddenly pull the plug on the whole thing.

    I had a dream last night that we all showed up, and the only bands there were 20 or so crappy 5th tier bands that no one had ever heard of. We decided to have a mutiny on the boat, and took over the cruise ship for ourselves. :beerbang:

    There has got to be some insanely amazing 1st announcement like Mercyful Fate to get those who are (rightfully) pissed off at the moment back on the team. I'm sure the event will be as incredible as it has always been, but this lack of communication is just rude.

    Like one of the others who decided to go to Japan, if 70K doesn't happen, we'll book a kick-ass vacation and wind up saving some money in the process.

      It is more and more looking like there will be no gold-silver-public deliniation this year.

      The following VERY TIGHT timeline only JUST fits in to 16 days, even if announcements start today!

      I mean, technically they could leave every booking round open for just 2-3 days and work on all of the booking confirmations collectively, no?

      I did the math a few days ago on the discord, and if they allowed only 2 days between survivor tiers, there's a minimum of 12 days between announcing and payment cut off, 11 if they announce and send gold emails in the same day.

      Day 1: Announce
      Day 2: Send golds emails
      Day 4: Open booking to golds
      Day 6: send silvers emails
      Day 8: Open silver booking
      Day 10: Open public booking
      Day 12: Close payment plan
      Give me Behemoth and I'll be ecstatic

      Y'all seem to think that UMC can process gold sales in a day or two. The number of Gold sailors increases every year, and in previous years they had like a business week to process these things. And you want them to cram all that work into a DAY?

      If that's the plan, this is setting themselves up for a complete disaster when it comes to opening sales. I really think there HAS to be a change up this year, or a change in the monthly plan.

      And if I'm wrong, good luck to all of you. You're gonna need it.

      I recall Andy saying they would change the booking process at the end of the 2018 cruise (to allow more new people in the cruise). They didn't change it last year, so I think they are changing it for this year and also that's why we don't have any booking information and bands.
      If that's the case, I hope the new system will have a server crash proofed fail safe when we will all try to book at the same time...

      Last time there was a clusterfuck for me was 2018 trying to book my cabin, oh the horror, took over an hour, the website kept crashing, reload, retry, rinse, repeat, ugh! 2019 booking was much smoother.

      That was a given regardless :lol:

      I will have to watch the forum the day sales finally do go up. I am drawn to chaos.

      Robes, what robes? 5 years and I've never seen robes.
      If you signed up for the Crown and Anchor benefits, you are supposed to get bathrobes after a certain number of nights from the cruise ship. I forget how many cruises it took. RC seems to not be honoring the benefits anymore but our stateroom attendants have had no problem grabbing the robes for us the past few cruises.
      I should get around to updating my signature

      Y'all seem to think that UMC can process gold sales in a day or two. The number of Gold sailors increases every year, and in previous years they had like a business week to process these things. And you want them to cram all that work into a DAY?

      If that's the plan, this is setting themselves up for a complete disaster when it comes to opening sales. I really think there HAS to be a change up this year, or a change in the monthly plan.

      And if I'm wrong, good luck to all of you. You're gonna need it.
      What I am suggesting is that they choose to process all of the bookings before opening up the next tier. They don’t necessarily HAVE to. They can allow everyone to book from each tier and process them all collectively.

      Royal doesn't generally honor loyalty perks on charter cruises, hence the suite lounge and other similar amenities (like no-fee room service for suite guests) are not offered. But at least the bathrobes ARE there and can be provided by the stewards.
