  1. Gosh.....this sounds sneaky to me. Wouldn’t they know the ship’s itineraries in advance and know they must depart U.S. waters and then return again? Will they quit booking transatlantic cruises? All of this is confusing to this novice.
  2. The first paragraph on page 20 seems to imply it would (b) Scope. This framework applies to any person operating or intending to operate a cruise ship in U.S. waters and to anyone operating a cruise ship outside of U.S. waters if the cruise ship operator intends for the ship to return to operating in U.S. waters while this order is under effect.
  3. I can’t help but wonder about the 2021 European sailings in which many are longer than 7 days. Will those be cancelled?
  4. I have contacted my Congressman and I really feel the CDC will once again be an independent body free from presidential pressure if we get a Democratic President and Senate. Right now the odds appear good we will but I remember 2016 and not count my chickens before they hatch. Right now I’m trying to decide whether or not to cancel my WDW trip for Thanksgiving. We are Disney Vacation Club members and I have borrowed points from 2021 that will expire on me if we don’t use them. Seriously thinking of just going and staying inside the condo. I t will at least be a change of scenery🥺
  5. If Biden wins the election, then I most certainly believe he will follow the science and take the advice of scientists and the top infectious disease experts in the country. The economy is going to take a hit until we can get this virus under control. It just doesn’t make sense to me to develop a herd mentality and let millions of people die due to the erroneous thinking of economy first. How can an economy thrive if workers are continually getting sick and can’t work and companies then have to go into quarantine and shut down? There needs to be a national plan such as a mask mandate a
  6. Maybe through Zoom but this is bad if a bunch of people end up with COVID. I guess they are doing contact tracing and they were even around the Biden campaign Tuesday night too.
  7. I think it would not be wise for cruise lines to ignore the advice of scientists and infectious disease specialists and sail again based purely on political considerations during an election season.
  8. Axios is a news site and Jonathan Swan got the scoop. He interviewed the president not too long ago. So my guess it is true in light of how everything the CDC has been recommending lately gets shot down or altered.

  10. This is the reason I booked Fly2Fun with Carnival so I could cancel with no $$$$ tied up till final payment. We just recently got our refund ($5000) for our cancelled air though Delta (Delta Comfort) for our cancelled Norway Legend cruise in June. Don’t want to go through that again. The bad thing for us is that we paid for this cruise with Carnival Gift Cards which did transfer over to the rebooked one next June. This is the first time we had bought the discounted AARP Carnival gift cards. We thought we were so smart and thrifty at the time.....lol. Lesson learned. However, I guess
  11. Do you or anyone else know if there was ever a Roll Call on CC for the March Transatlantic? The only one I see is for a March 6 Panama Canal. Just strange. It seems that if there were folks previously booked then we would have heard from them.
  12. I don’t see any sailings out of Long Beach till May 2022.
  13. If my memory serves me correctly, the Carnival Legend was suppose to sail to Europe in March, 2021 from Tampa. I can’t find it now on Carnival’s site or even a roll call for ii🥺 All I see is the Transatlantic back to the US in October and the European sailings. I am beginning to become concerned. How is the ship going to get there? Will the European sailings still be on the Legend or another ship? Could this be a sign that the European cruises will eventually be cancelled? I would appreciate any info that you may have that I may have missed. Btw....we are booked for the June 4 Norway
  14. Not with Carnival. A few years ago I was able to do it with Princess. To the best of my memory, I think I could not do it till the tickets were paid in full. I suspect the same would be true through Carnival but it may be difficult to upgrade if you wait till final payment date. Btw, We usually book our own airfare with upgraded seats but I liked the flexible airfare available with Carnival in these uncertain times. Maybe someone else will post with more recent experience doing this.
