    Asking not because of Covid, but just in general.  Is it better to buy insurance for your cruise through the cruise line when booking or making final payment, or perhaps is it a better deal to go with Allianz or AIG or someone else?  Thanks for your thoughts.

    I personally use the cruise companies insurance along with medijet transit for emergencies to get me back to the states.

    In case you hadn't seen this.

    I think it's across the Carnival Corp lines, so don't know if any Princess ships will be included.

    Any guesses?




    If you google these ships, there is a great one where there is three of the ships beached in Turkey to get melted for scrap, it looked like they had them at full speed with a lot of soot out of the stack and they just beach these ships as the people climb on board.  That beach had three carnival/princess ships beached!

    We're booked for 18 days on Island Princess next June. (No idea if the cruise will actually happen of course.) It's truly a bummer that there is no IC on Island Princess. To add insult to injury I don't think there's a Vines either. Ships with no IC or no Vines are crazy. I would never book on that ship except my wife really wants to do the itinerary.

    You think that is crazy, we will be on the Island for 110 days doing the WC without IC or a vines with the full drink package!

    Does anyone know if we can still use the punches on a coffee card?  I was cleaning this weekend and found an old one and was hoping my kid could use it for blendeds.  Again, I know this has been asked a million time, but I didn't want to scroll through pages and pages of searches, so please don't harp on me.




    No it went the way of the dinosaurs! Sorry you can no longer use it.

  5. I got the invite plus a chance to be in the live presentation, I have been accepted and was asked for questions to pose to her.  I provided the 3 questions in which I am interested in, how will the virus be handled by crew and passengers, will the vaccine be required, how will we know if the ports will allow the ship into port.  We have booked a WC originally 2021 but moved it to 2022.  The live event will be on Zoom and I have received the code to get in live.  I am curios when cruising will start and hope our world cruise gets off.


  6. Its an interesting fact that Carnival corporation is the leader in the coronavirus and deaths among its passengers.  In the industry I used to work in, this seems like an issue that needs a very through investigation (root cause) prior to any Carnival Corporation ship sails the high seas. They need to look to see if crew members from certain countries brought it onto the ship, was it from a port/s visited by each ship, why did it take long to find it on the ship, do they have procedures in place to detect it faster on each ship (maybe purchasing that portable machine that the president highlighted), how do they now board passengers in the future (temp checks, passport checks), how do they handle passengers (multiple) when they get sick on the ship.  Just my thoughts.  I believe they need to perform a root cause of their ships over other ships getting sick and how they will handle this in the future.

  7. Yes in your booking documents it tells you what visas you need.  We also are on the 2021 world cruise.  Some of the visas you can do on line 6-months before you go.  See you on the ship!  Look at your bookning summary it is under "visa requirements".
