  1. Rebooked my cruise for 2022 & staying optimistic. I really miss cruising. Electro, I know what you mean by the fingertip handshake. I worked for an insurance company & shook a lot of hands. I usually got a surprised look because I apparently have a strong handshake for a woman. Maybe comes from years of dealing with horses. Anyway, had to laugh about the germ comment. We typically shake hands or hug at church - well not this year, but back before covid. I'm sure I've been handed plenty of germs. Hopefully, it just made my immune system stronger.
  2. We are in the same boat. Our 2020 cruise was cancelled & we took the 125% FCC, never dreaming that this pandemic would still be going on. So, our 2021 cruise was cancelled. We are to the point that we would have been happy this time to just get our original amount refunded. However, that's not how the FCC works, even on a double cancellation. So, we rebooked for 2022 & just hope that this pandemic is over & NCL is still in business. My current beef is with American Airlines, who says they will issue a credit, but it's only good until the end of this year. That's annoying bec
  3. My credit showed up yesterday along with the 10% coupon. I suppose we will just book for next year and hope for the best. Our travel companions got theirs as well.
  4. 28 degrees right now. I will welcome being above freezing. We got a little more sleet/snow last night. We've been fortunate that our power hasn't gone out. I know some that have been out for days. Our hot tub has icicles hanging off the cover from the condensation. Still a toasty 104 degrees inside though. I'd love to be in it, but I sure would dread getting out. My main concern right now is my outdoor faucets. They're covered, but I worry that isn't enough. Plumbers are gonna be real busy when the thawing begins.
  5. No need for y'all to act all high & mighty. I was just saying how I felt and if you read my next comment you will see I am not whining or jumping up & down or stomping my feet. Geesh!
  6. Yeah, I figured they would not go back to the original booking, but I asked anyway. As my hubby always says, you don't get what you don't ask for. All I can do at this point is remain optimistic that they will get some ships on the water and maybe we'll be able to do our cruise next year. At least I have all my warm Alaska clothes to wear during the deep freeze we are having down here. I don't know about San Antonio, but it is miserable in the DFW area. It was really crazy to see pics of snow in Galveston.
  7. We got our email today regarding cancellation. Since our 2021 cruise was booked using the FCC from our cancelled 2020 cruise, they say we cannot get a refund of our original payment, just the FCC. Kind of bummed about that because I have growing concerns about solvency if they don't get some ships out on the water.
  8. I don't understand why the Canadian government will not allow ships to go through their waters. It's not like Covid (if there were to happen to be a case on board) is going to fly off the ship onto the mainland. Anyone know what the reasoning is there? I don't see why they wouldn't allow a ship to dock or drop anchor just offshore to satisfy the foreign port requirement with the stipulation that no one is to get off the ship, staff or passengers.
  9. Our May 2021 cruise is already paid for by the credit from the May 2020 cruise being cancelled. So now I'm wondering what happens if this one is cancelled - another credit or can I just get a refund of my original cruise. I suppose if they started sailing in the Caribbean I could just book a Caribbean cruise to satisfy my cruising itch. I so miss being on a ship at sea. I sure feel for those in Alaska who make their living off of tourism. Hopefully people on land vacations there will help, but I can't even imagine how much they are losing by not having the ships come in.
  10. I don't typically get flu vaccines, but I don't have high exposure - well maybe at the grocery store. I've been fortunate enough to have never gotten the flu even when I worked in daycare and at a veterinary clinic. I did get them on occasion when the clinic paid for them & had the pharmacy tech come give them to us. I did get the 2-part shingles vaccine back when it was in short supply. My Walmart pharmacist called me when it was available for the 2nd dose. However, had there not been supply issues, I don't know that they would have done that. I had shingles once & never wanted
  11. We rebooked our 2020 Alaska cruise to 2021. Staying hopeful. That's all I really can do.
  12. We are scheduled for Encore in May of next year. Since it is an Alaskan cruise, the pool areas won't be used by us. Looking forward to trying out NCL.
  13. Math Teacher, Lady Lion is correct - you call to have it done. We did everything over the phone through our travel person, as we were dealing with 2 cabins and wanted to be sure we got the reservations linked together.
  14. It's always been my understanding that you need to book a year out for Alaska if you want to get the cabin you want. I think our cancelled one was booked about a year out as well.
