Ok, I know I am getting antsy with 76 days left but was wondering now that the cruise is paid in full, can we fill out our embarkation forms online now or do we have to wait for documents to come in the mail? And yes sometimes I post just the see the # of days I have left!
We were just on the "Radiance" and even though I had filled out the forms online, the gate agent re-enterd all the information. She was very apolgetic yet didn't explain why this happened. From watching the boards, I think this is the exception rather than the rule and it was only 2-3 extra minutes out of my day.
I tried to fill out the online embarkation forms with about 70 days until sailing, but they wouldn't "take" until less than 60 days to go. Don't know if anyone else has had this experience, but don't despair if you don't have any luck this early...try again closer to sailing date.
I was able to fill in all my information at the Royal Caribbean web-site for a 2-22-04 cruise, no problem as long as you have the right number. You can also call Royal Caribbean for your number. You do have to wait until 60 days before your cruise to actually book excursions on-line, but you can still check them out before that.
I wish I had read the 60 day thing for excursions before I booked the Whale tour. I just went on line to book it. They will probably notify me that it didn't take. And I do have the confirmation #, thanks.
Since this is an Alaskan cruise we are going on, are passports still needed to use the online feature of embarkation? This is no problem with two of us, but four others in our party aren't planning on renewing passports. They are over 3 mos past expiration date.
Thanks all for filling me in. This is a terrific website!!
We booked with the cruiseline this time. I know there are great things said about capt Larrry, but since this our first cruise, we will probably book everything from the ship. We like the feeling of the cruiseline being responsible. When we get more of a feel for how things work, we will get a bit more independent. Therefore we must take another cruise to assert our independence...right?!
So will wait to hear from RCCL if they took my reservation early.
