  1. Oh boy. Getting closer to our May 8 2021 Mardi Gras sailing... that would be the third cancellation. Crazy times. Wondering if we should just move it to like 2023 or something.
  2. Thanks a bunch for the reply. Is the transition purely for environmental reasons? Or is LNG or some combo of fuels considered more fuel efficient over traditionally fueled vessels? Or all of the above? Haha
  3. Cheng- Always appreciate reading your words, I learn something every time. I’m a complete empty box of knowledge with ships, so apologies if this is widely known... but is LNG a common fuel in the shipping industry? I would imagine there’s obviously a fair bit of data and knowledge, or else how would Carnival get the equipment and such to run a ship off LNG... but for the uninitiated like myself, it seems a bit “Oh, that’s new technology” with all of the usual worries that come with anything new. We are sailing on her in May, and I’m well convinced of her safety. I’m just curious a
  4. If vegetarians want to save the animals, why do they eat all their food?
  5. Rudi’s is available to book on our May 2021 Mardi Gras cruise at $38/each. The menu isn’t available though, and before I book, I’d like to see the menu. The write up about him making funny faces with the food isn’t doing it for me right now. We are big foodies.... literally just booked the Chef’s table for the same cruise about 10 minutes ago. But funny food faces isn’t enough to make me pull the trigger.
  6. I started looking at replacement cruises as soon as I got the email this morning. Our April 2020 Breeze cruise was for our anniversary... didn’t happen. The Jan 2021 Mardi Gras was in between both of our birthdays (both in January)... not happening haha. So this May 8 will be for our anniversary, although it’s a week too late. I looked for a bunch of replacement Jan 2021 cruises but didn’t see anything terribly exciting, so we went for the make-up anniversary attempt. I consider us lucky with this May 8 sailing... we managed to get the last (or so we were told) extended bal
  7. Same for us... we were on the Jan 16 sailing. That one was a re-book from our April 2020 Breeze getting cancelled. So... we are now booked on the May 8 sailing of Mardi Gras. We’ll see if the third times a charm!
  8. March 9 is when we moved our April 2020 cruise. Haven’t received a refund for FTTF or the two shore excursions yet. Guess I’ll give it the full 90 days before I attempt to call customer service.
  9. Oh that’s good news.... we’ll see what happens!
  10. Cool idea Sid, always great to escape and take a trip with you, even if that trip has already happened!
  11. Vaccines are made with dead viruses. This journalist gonna make a big deal about that too?
  12. Italy, Spain, and I’m afraid Finland... doesn’t matter where, I think it’s all going to be affected. Just waiting on word from Carnival while I research other cruises. We booked a Jan 2021 Mardi Gras cruise because our April 2020 cruise on the Breeze was a no-go. Wouldn’t be surprised if we had to re-reschedule this one.
  13. Radiance is in Spain, but they’re closed. Already cancelled her first 4 European sailings also.
  14. I noticed the Jan 2021 (and later) sailings not appearing anymore and initially chalked it up to thousands and thousands of folks re-booking due to this mess. Then I thought... what if they have to halt construction because of this? It’s certainly a mess with no good solutions. As an aside, I’m now researching other cruises in the event we have to re-schedule again. I just read an article, posted yesterday, that the Carnival Radiance’s transformation has been officially postponed. She’s at dry dock in Spain. It was supposed to be a 38 day job, and now the first 4 European sailings ha
  15. We booked a Jan 2021 sailing because our April 2020 Breeze cruise got caught up in this mess. Gonna be real upset if this one has to get rescheduled too!
