  1. Jeez, had our March cruise canceled now this...time to change my signature!
  2. Logged in just to report that we finally received our refund today, filled out the form on March 20th.
  3. 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 -- businesses might open in May, still yet to be seen. April will be a long month, but we remind ourselves we're grateful for health and a home to stay safe in. One thing I make sure to do every day is find something funny to keep the spirits up!
  4. 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 😊
  5. 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.
  6. We used Travel Insured and took the refund (you can also choose to receive a voucher).
  7. 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!
  8. 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.
  9. 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.foxnews.com/science/french-researchers-publish-antimalarial-and-antibiotics-combination-that-could-shorten-covid-19
  10. 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.
  11. We decided to take the refund, today. We put out a lot of money for this cruise (for us), and I was excited about the extra 25%, but ultimately it no longer makes sense to keep cash tied up in these uncertain times. We have a small business which came to a grinding halt, so the economic impact has been swift for us. I'm now focusing on looking forward to the day we're no longer being told to stay in our homes, heck, going out to dinner will be seen as a luxury once this is all over with (I'm in TX where all restaurants, gyms, non-essential businesses, etc, are shut down). As many have said, once this blows over, we can always book another one.
