  1. I have eaten at Arlington TX restaurants twice in the last month, have been to two casinos, my college child had two roommates who had COVID-19,, shop in at least 5 stores weekly, volunteered at the airport, attended a wedding and funeral (not Covid-19 death), going to church for the last two months, volunteered at a kitchen, play golf weekly, go out to eat at least weekly, stayed in 3 hotels and I’m still standing. I take precautions, exercise, and take my vitamins with D3 and zinc. Life and cruising must go on!
  2. But Italy has about half the total number of cases of Florida and over twice the amount of reported deaths.
  3. What this incident should remind us that life can be taken in a blink of an eye and if only one moment in time was changed, Chloe would be alive. Just makes us wonder how many past incidents we have lived through could have turned out terribly wrong if one little thing was changed. Remember the mom left Chloe with grandpa because she had to take care of something at customer service. I am not blaming her just that a lot of things had to align for this to happen. The law suite should go away, but it won't because all is it about now is money and making someone pay for the misfortune I caused all by myself.
  4. You trust the CDC and scientists? They have gone from masks don’t work to masks provide better protection then a vaccine. Then they come up with a statement that says we never told anyone that masks protect the wearer after the CDC director said the mask will protect him more than the vaccine.
  5. "We've got to break that custom," he argued. He meant it. He only backtracked a little when he was called out on it.
  6. Where do you get your information? Your basement? https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/fauci-perfect-world-americans-stop-shaking-hands/story?id=70062797
  7. I saw a lot of hoverounds on cruises before this. I was also on a cruise that was called a floating nursing home.
  8. Really? Dr Fauci says no more handshakes after this.
  9. So if there are treatments, why are millions still dying yearly from the WHO identified diseases? I thought the WHO is supposed to help those countries, and not be political. But when the WHO president called a cholera outbreak in his country just a case of diarrhea, I have concerns what their real intentions are.
  10. Millions of people die yearly from diseases without pre-existing conditions. Lower respiratory illnesses, diarrheal illnesses, malaria, cancer, stroke, tuberculosis, and HIV/AIDS are just a few. Unless you don’t believe WHO. https://www.who.int/news-room/fact-sheets/detail/the-top-10-causes-of-death
  11. There was a sad story about a doctor in Houston that got COVID and was on a ventilator for two months before they died. It wasn’t revealed until the end of the story that after testing positive they were at home for almost a week before the symptoms worsened and that they had asthma (was on an inhaler). So if anyone has any symptoms and underlying conditions, get tested and insist on starting therapeutics if you have it.
  12. Two of my college child’s roommates were asystematic and had to quarantine with them. My child was tested several times and tests came back negative.
  13. I’m assuming it is a baseball analogy that if a ball (Covid infected passenger) gets past the catcher (safety protocols) you have a barrier (quarantine, therapeutics, preventives) so it doesn’t harm anybody else in the stands (passengers).
  14. We moved an October Symphony cruise to a Liberty cruise in February which at the time was the latest we could move. As far as RC knowing they weren't going to start cruising in all of the previous startup dates is like saying they should have cancelled a cruise months before the hurricane hit.
  15. We were told months ago by the CDC, the scientists, that we had to hunker down to flatten the curve. The curve has been flattened for months, the mortality rate is going down, yet they keep on extending the cruise ban. You are putting your frustrations on a company that is being yanked around by the CDC and the virus.
