  1. I think your underestimating. I don't think they will lose as much as one may think. I would bet a large percentage that say they will not sail if vaccine is required actually will, in fact, sail. It's like every time Disney raises it's ticket prices and you hear the masses saying they will not pay it and will not return then they are posting about their latest trip and how wonderful it was. It's easy to say you won't but the pull is there. People will be back, the cruise lines will not suffer because of this requirement.
  2. It will not be from Canada. Not this year. Government of Canada announces one-year ban for pleasure craft and cruise vessels - Canada.ca
  3. How would they know? There was a case in our town that was accredited to elevator use and I wondered the same thing. How would you know? The virus could be on the buttons someone pushed, could be just floating in the air.....or it could be the person you walked by in a hall. How could you possibly know?
  4. We have sailings in October and I personally don't mind if there is a mask mandate. With the number of people who say they will not sail if they need a mask, that could make our sailings a much nicer time. Less people to via for the deck chairs, less people to take up wanted dinning reservations less people in the pools and my personal favorite, less people in the casino 🎰. I can live with that. 😉
  5. Where did you see this? Is it conjecture or is it posted in the lawsuit somewhere? I didn't think there was a number.
  6. I've wondered about this since the beginning. He says he is color blind but has that been proven? It's easy to say but to prove is another matter. It would/should be on record somewhere if true.
  7. Tripping while carrying her down stairs would have been a tragic accident. Lifting her outside a window, 11 stories up while holding her with only one arm is negligent homicide in my eyes. You can not call it a tragic accident. Let's also not forget she had been playing in the children's water area minutes before and was probably slathered in sun screen which would make her slippery. The grandfather should have received a lot more than what he did.
  8. That would be horrifying. I feel so sorry for them. That would give you nightmares for years. To me, it looked like he held her out with one arm around her, not both his arms.
  9. I'm not sure that is correct. The mother and father were down at the service desk, they weren't in the area. Chloe ran to the window and grandfather followed her. Then he leans out, picks her up and puts her out. ETA- found this (279) Surveillance video shows moment Indiana toddler drops from cruise ship - YouTube
  10. I really doubt they will win but they may just give any settlement money away in the name of Chloe. Don't know. All I'm saying is they need to blame someone. If they blame the Grandfather then they have to blame themselves for leaving her with him. That could, mentally, be hard to do. This might be how they are coping. Not saying it's the right way, saying it could be their way. I hope it's not about money.
  11. I think it's more trying to come to an understanding. Trying to put the blame where they can move on. Yes, there is money involved but I think it's more to give them closure. It's not right but I really think it's for personal feelings, not personal gain. JMO.
  12. I want to disagree with this statement. He has to feel the guilt, accept it, before it will be a punishment to him. From what he has written in his statement he seems to still want people to fault RCL and not him.
  13. That is so sad. Three years probation SMH. That child lost her life. As far as I know the probation will just be staying out of trouble and reporting in to a probation officer or, depending on where he lives, reporting to a police station. Wonder what ever became of the lawsuits the parents were filing.
  14. 😎 couldn't find the rolly eyed emoji. Think what you will but that is never going to happen. A year, maybe two, but forever? Nope.
  15. How does tipping work for this? Do you just leave some cash at the table?
  16. There is a HUGE difference between security caring about drinkers and caring about masks. One is a pain in the ass for cruise lines but not a big consequence to it. The other could have the CDC close the line down, big loss of money. I think security/staff will be monitoring this like they never have anything before. It's going to be the difference between keeping business going and closing down again. Be interesting to see what Royal Caribbean Dude thinks. And masks are not going to be forever, not sure why you think that. Some may choose to continue but lots will toss them w
  17. The caveat for that though is when you return to Canada you have to do a 14 day quarantine. That could be hard for some. I don't see it going away till the borders are completely open either. Some will be able to do this, some not.
  18. Your going to get many responses and feelings on this so I thought I would throw in mine. I'm a non smoker who loves to play the slots. Even thought they set aside a non smoking section that only means you will not have a smoker beside you. In reality it is all one big room and smoke drifts. There is no getting away from the smell. Having said all that, I did not find it a problem but I'm not one of those who say they can't be around it because it makes them sick or whatever. Yes, you know there are smokers in the room however with the ventilation they use the smoke itself dissipa
  19. I think what was being said was if they DROP the lawsuit then the family would probably have to come up with the cost of legal fees. It is pretty well known that the lawyers expect a large chunk of what they pull in and that would pay for their time but if the couple drop the suit then the lawyers would be out that expense and probably bill the clients for wasting their time.
  20. Did anyone notice that Gofund me page was set up by someone in Charlotte, NC? Do they have family there? I wonder if it is in fact not a legit funding page. Sad if someone would use this for personal gain.
  21. I would be surprised if they didn't have time to talk before GF being questioned by anyone with the authority to ask for a test. Again, just my thought but I'm sure GF wasn't whisked off at that very minute. It would have taken time for everyone to figure things out, what to do next. He probably would have asked for the son/daughter and would most likely have been allowed to speak with them.
  22. I would bet that it would be on the advice of the mother and father. She's a DA and he is a police officer if I'm correct. That would probably be advice they would give knowing the legal system. They may not have felt he was impaired but testing over the limit would be held against him. Or even if he were taking meds for say cholesterol and mixed it with a drink that would be a reading they may not want in evidence. That's just my thought, could be totally off the mark.
  23. One of the best compliments I ever received was from a co-worker. After hearing about our vacations for years and how I looked/got the best deals she said 'your not cheap, your thrifty!'. That I am, that I am.
