  1. I’m guessing the CDC will appeal this decision.
  2. We booked a Baltic Cruise on the Carnival Pride for August 21, 2022. Hoping we will be able to cruise in Europe by then.
  3. I totally get your frustration. Hubby and I (both 68) have decided to get off this merry-go-round and take the refund this time. The downside is that we will have about $4000 in Carnival gift cards to use when we feel it is safe to do so. Just hoping Carnival doesn’t go bankrupt and that we live long enough to use them.
  4. Our European cruise for June 2020 was cancelled and we rescheduled for June 2021. We bought Travel Insured International through Trip Insurance Store and initial application date was 6-22-19. I immediately called TIS after we rescheduled and our dates were changed for the same term for June 2021. I am worried now that the rescheduled cruise for June 2021 will also be cancelled. If cancelled by the cruise company or ourselves will we be able to change the dates on our policy again or will we just lose the insurance?
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. I can’t help but wonder about the 2021 European sailings in which many are longer than 7 days. Will those be cancelled?
  8. 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🥺
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.

  14. 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
