  1. That's completely understandable and reasonable to want. I would imagine a remedy would be to provide "fully vaxxed" cruises from certain ships/locales. I am not vaxxed but I do not want to go on a cruise where I have to be masked up and distanced the whole time either, so we're not booking anything. I also don't want to be on a cruise where it's obvious between the vaxxed and un-vaxxed, I think that's a recipe for judgement and unpleasant verbal exchanges. Will be interesting to see how this plays out for everyone - I can understand both sides of the issue. As an aside, we decided
  2. This negates the big picture though and is only focusing on cruising. If you're truly concerned about only being around vaccinated people, living life in general would also have to create big issues for you, not just the cruise. How do you know the people you grocery shop next to are vaccinated? Or at work? Do you currently go to the movies, restaurants, what about that? How do you know the people you're flying with are vaccinated? Once you're off the ship and on an excursion, how do you know the people you're around are vaccinated? What about those nice tight lines in customs with people jamm
  3. I am tempted to book January 30, 2021 on Symphony, particular sailing has a great JS price. I just don't know if I should pull the trigger - like everyone, I've already been disappointed a couple times this year with bookings. I definitely DON'T want my money tied up - are they still giving refunds?
  4. Jeez, had our March cruise canceled now this...time to change my signature!
  5. Logged in just to report that we finally received our refund today, filled out the form on March 20th.
  6. I'm in Texas and my county has also been sheltering in place since March 14th. The first few days were the most difficult to get used to, but I think we're getting the hang of our "new normal" 😬 I feel like I cook 485 times a day and lord knows every surface has seen Lysol. So far so good though, DH works in one of our spare rooms, I'm in my office, and DS is upstairs playing away, so we spend our days working from home and then have dinner together. We're also sure to get outside for our daily walk/run to get some sunshine and fresh air. We're in a small community so it's quiet for now -- bus
  7. Yeah I read the same thing this morning, bummed! I'm in the DFW area and Galveston is a nice place to drive to and cruise from. Understandable though, they're doing what they can given the circumstances. I'm just grateful we're getting Oasis class ships at all 😊
  8. I feel ya! I should be packing today, leaving tomorrow at 7am on a flight to Miami, then boarding Symphony on Saturday. I know there are "bigger problems" to be had, but it's difficult not to feel bummed about something we were looking forward to. One thing is for sure, it will be one hell of a celebration once life resumes to normal again.
  9. We used Travel Insured and took the refund (you can also choose to receive a voucher).
  10. We cruise twice a year and will resume that schedule once it's safe to do so. We absolutely love to vacation this way and can't wait until we're back on a ship!
  11. Jeez. The OP even wrote "potential" in the subject line, there were no absolutes mentioned. I'm surprised to see the arguments that stemmed from a simple post meant to spread some dang hope. I think if anyone here found out they had Covid-19, and started to experience their *health declining*, they'd be hopeful to know there "might" be something that "could" save their life - which is better than nothing, at this point.
  12. Since a vaccine could be a ways off, looks like there could be some promise using antimalarial drugs along with other antibacterial drugs. I heard during the press conference tonight that this combination was going to begin getting used in NY, perhaps beginning on Tuesday. If this is successful, I think it would help settle everything down. At least people would have a fight in the game. Hopefully we'll know more by the end of next week regarding if it's helping people or not. Here's the article, I know other news outlets have written about it as well: https://www.foxne
  13. We also decided on a refund yesterday, getting our cash back became our main focus. We can always book another cruise, but having money tied up with the state of the world became unwise for us.
