  1. With on-line check-in, you get to select when you can enter the terminal to get processed. Usually try to get an early time.
  2. For our Feb 21 2021 Freedom cruise out of Galveston, our on-line check-in date was November 23rd. Just checked yesterday, and it has been moved to January 7. Anyone have an idea why this has changed? BTW - check-in date has changed, but not the final payment date 🤔
  3. If this was "all out there" in March, why would the CDC wait until late August and start asking for input on how cruising should be restarted? Confusing. .
  4. Could you please give me a web address where these requirements to resume cruising are published? I haven't seen anything about the CDC putting out guidelines or requirements yet....
  5. https://www.travelmarketreport.com/articles/CLIA-Submits-Plan-for-Gradual-Resumption-of-US-Cruises-to-CDC https://www.travelpulse.com/news/cruise/senators-introduce-bill-to-safely-bring-back-cruising-in-us.html And the bill doesn't exclude the CDC, it creates a panel with members from differnet government agencies, including the Department of Health and Human Services, which I believe the CDC comes under. Guess you could say they are trying to go over the CDC's head and go straight to their boss..
  6. With CLIA sending suggestions to the CDC and the 2 Florida Senators pressing them, I'm thinking (hoping?) that the CDC might publish the new guidelines by the end of this week. Anyone else have a guess?
  7. You need to realize that the ports themselves have a vote in who is allowed in their country. I'm sure they dont want alot of unsupervised foreigners spreading the virus around. Carnival has most likely coordinated this restriction with them....
  8. I usually do no/low carb. But, I'll eat whatever looks good while on a cruise. I can eat healthy the OTHER 51 weeks of the year 😉
  9. Work? They take the current no-sail order, change the expiration date to 30 November 2020, and publish it. Easy peasy...
  10. Let's see: 1) CDC taking input/suggestions til Sept 21. 2) CDC compiling suggestions, formulating policy - mid October? 3) CDC publishing policy/guidelines - late October? 4) Cruise industry implementing said guidelines - 4-6 weeks ramp up ships/get crew back/etc - mid December? 5) Maybe some Christmas cruises to end the year.... Remember, the CDC is a government agency that has been somewhat antagonistic to the cruise industry over the years. Don't see them suddenly speeding things up to make the industry happy.....
  11. Does anyone know if EZ Cruise Parking in Galveston is still in business? Been trying for months to get a reservation for our February Freedom cruise, but their website does allow reservations out that far....
  12. And what CDC plan is that? The CDC hasn't even attempted to publish any health and safety plans for the cruise lines. That's why the cruise lines keep canceling cruise, how can you set up and implement your plans if the government agency won't even give you the guidelines?
