  1. 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
  2. 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 about how common it is not just in the cruise industry, but in shipping as a whole.
  3. If vegetarians want to save the animals, why do they eat all their food?
  4. 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.
  5. 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 balcony on the hump, deck 9 port. Our Jan 2021 cruise, we had a cove spa balcony. None of those were available for this cruise, so once all our monies transfer over, we just have a little over $100 to pay by February for this cruise haha.
  6. 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!
  7. 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.
  8. Oh that’s good news.... we’ll see what happens!
  9. Cool idea Sid, always great to escape and take a trip with you, even if that trip has already happened!
  10. Vaccines are made with dead viruses. This journalist gonna make a big deal about that too?
  11. 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.
  12. Radiance is in Spain, but they’re closed. Already cancelled her first 4 European sailings also.
  13. 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 have been cancelled. After reading that, I assume Mardi Gras is having the same issue. Guess we’ll know by Friday! I know it’s a silly thing to stress about... but we really needed our April cruise (big move, two career changes) to de-stress. Neither of us have a lot of flexibility with our careers, and I don’t think anyone is able to book an interim vacation right now anyways (land or sea) to make up for our April cruise. So we reluctantly pushed it out to Jan 2021. I think we could most likely book an Oct-Dec 2020 cruise somewhere... but then again, what if this mess continues and disrupts those also?
  14. 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!
  15. Howdy! We just booked this cruise! We were scheduled to leave April 25 of this year on the Breeze. We decided to cancel, not because of a fear of getting sick, but the fear of being quarantined for days on end, which we can’t afford to do with our careers. We were eagerly counting down to the days, but now our count has jumped back up. Our anniversary cruise now turned into a birthday cruise (for both of us) on a brand new ship! We were in a spa balcony on the Breeze, and now we are booked in a spa cove balcony for this trip. Odd that the spa is on deck 5, but it’ll be ok!
