  1. I used to be a glass artist, so working with fire was a necessity. In mythology Prometheus stole fire from the Gods and gave it to man- Just seemed like a natural name to take at the time.
  2. Actually the Havana interiors are not nearly as expensive as the suites and you still have access to all of the Havana areas. I would love a Havana suite but out of my price range. At this point I would take steerage just to be on a cruise:)
  3. Im also curious about the Havana area on New Excel class vs Vista class. On the layout of Excel class it appears much smaller than the Vista class and off to the side of the ship. Guess we will have to wait until the reviews on those first Mardi Gras cruises.
  4. Cookies from the buffet with soft serve in between= ice cream sandwich 🙂
  5. Only time will tell. Have a Hawaii cruise in Nov. I think after the Holiday surge starts to dissipate numbers will (hopefully) start to go down. Im hopefully getting vaccinated in the next 2 weeks. Im still looking forward to cruising as long as I have bookings, Whether they go, is going to be month by month.... We will cruise again someday!
  6. Yep, total bummer but not too surprising. Im taking the refund this time. I know I will go on future Royal cruises but my schedule is getting tight for rebooking and I don't want any more money tied up in bookings for the moment.
  7. well, scratch off the Symphony OTS. Got my cancellation notice a short time ago...
  8. For Symphony Im booked in a forward window cabin, Allure is a central park balcony and Celebration an interior Havana.
  9. First solo booked for April 24 Symphony OTS Sept 5 Allure OTS Nov 6 Carnival Celebration TA A bit nervous but glad to find this thread on CC. My husband or family will sometimes cruise with me but DH doesn't like cruising near as much as I do so I figure Im going cruising with or without him:)
  10. Following this thread, first solo cruise on April 24 (if it goes) and next solo on Sept 5th, even planning a solo TA in 2022. Even when traveling with others I like my "alone time quite a bit" and as someone mentioned above I plan to bring a book for mealtimes and bars. I also have not been able to make reservations for anytime dining on RCL-will not give me an option to book a time but it looks like it will for a specialty restaurant (I very badly want to try Wonderland just waiting until the cruise gets closer before I put down anymore money).
  11. You may need to pick several future cruises to choose from, just keep giving dates until they find once that works. I was able to move a cruise from May 2021 to Sept of 2022 on Horizon. All onboard credit transferred. Still got same room class (Havana) Carnival had not cancelled that cruise yet. I did it this morning. Just emailed my PVP and traded a few emails and gave him the approval.
  12. Got this email from Carnival just a short time ago Dear Carnival Cruise Line Guest: Thank you for your continued patience and support as we work through the ongoing pause in our cruise operations. The health and safety of our guests and crew and public health in the communities we serve remain our priority. We are working diligently to ensure we meet the requirements of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) so we can welcome our guests back on board and resume cruising when the time is right. We know that you are booked on an 8-day itinerary and CDC guidel
  13. While it remains to be seen what the protocols will be actually be (since they are subject to change) when cruising starts in the US, my question pertains to Back to Back cruises whether on the same line or a 2 different cruise lines. If we are suppose to get a COVID test 3-5 days before our cruise, how would this work if we are already on a cruise. Will we be able to buy a COVID test on the ship? I know many including myself have B2B cruises booked. May not be an issue if you are on the same ship /same cruise line but what if you are getting off one cruise line and getting on a different c
  14. Just booked the Nov 6, 2022 on Celebration as well. Never done a TA and never been on a new ship. I know a lot could change (delays etc..) At this point going solo, got a reasonable deal on a Havana interior and was afraid Havana rooms would fill up, so I took it. While the itinerary isn't super exciting Im okay with that. Im mostly excited for so many sea days. I find I am wanting to take longer and longer cruises. I just Love being on the ocean. Funny seeing how I'm only 5 miles from the beach, it just isn't the same as being on a ship.
