  1. I see no reason to believe any announcement they make. Fool me once....
  2. Some people never learn. Plan land vacations until this is over. We are looking forward to spending the month of July in the beach house we have rented. We are able to do that because we don't have our cash tied up in a future cruise that may or may not happen.
  3. I think we overestimate how much some of the poorer locations in the Caribbean really want cruise ships there. We stayed a week in Roatan on a land vacation. According to the locals we talked to, they would prefer cruise ships go elsewhere. They prefer those who come for a week because we eat in their restaurants and spend money in their shops instead of at the cruise port or prepaid tours from companies not based on the island. We were told that most of the excursions, even private ones, were handled by a handful of companies that did business throughout the islands and that locals benefited
  4. I would hesitate to spend thousands of dollars on a cruise only to possibly be told I could not board once I arrived.
  5. I would go to the ruins in Progresso. My reason is because Progresso is IMO a crappy port. Though they have a beautiful beach, the locals constantly pester you to buy cheap made in China goods. Drinking just one beer, we were approched 14 times. We went back to the boat. For this reason we went to the ruins the next time we were in Progresso so as not to be harrassed. In Cozumel there is more to do and you won't be constantly harrassed.
  6. I don't get it. If I wanted candy, I would just bring it and pay reasonable prices.

  8. BLT's are free. https://www.carnival.com/~/media/Images/explore/dining/menus/room-service-all-day-menu.pdf
  9. There are some not very nice people on this thread. People are allowed to disagree, have different opinions and express them. It is unseemly for 3 or 4 people to gang up on someone because they do not like their opinion. There is no rule that one has to like NCL to post in this forum.
  10. Those whose contracts have been cancelled and are no longer being paid can say whatever they want.
  11. Carnival. I enjoy the open Lido and the freedom of not having to schedule everything.
  12. And still, I am getting an email from them daily asking me to book a cruise. Even if they do somehow stay afloat, I will never again sail with them.
  13. Well, my post was posted over a week ago. Sorry if I offended.
  14. My last post too. What it comes down to is that some people are spontaneous, live in the moment people. Some people like everything all laid out and pre-planned. Neither is wrong. JUST DO YOU.
  15. In my first post, I sent you a funtimes. The shows and nightlife are pretty much the same.
  16. Facing facts and assessing risks is not a negative thing. Considering how my actions may impact others is a positive thing. I do not want to cruise right now. For all I know, I am a silent carrier. For all I know, if cruises come back too soon, the cost could be in human lives. If the only way I could have a positive attitude was to know I would cruise by a certain date, I would need to re-examine my priorities and life.
  17. You don't even have to have a preset MDR time. We do "your time dining" so we can eat when we please. We don't like schedules on vacation. If we are having a great conversation with newfound friends or have just discovered a great musician, we might not want to leave just because we have a scheduled meal. But, that's us. You do you and enjoy. https://cruiseradio.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/CARNIVAL-HORIZON-FUN-TIMES.pdf
  18. You don't have to schedule any of that. Carnival truly is free style.
  19. I agree. Too many think only of what they want. Yes we have freedom. The freedom to be selfish seems to be in full force.
