  1. Unfortunately for all the cruise lines I believe this will be true. I doubt if they'll have enough people cruising in the near future to be profitable. Were we live most people are afraid to go shopping without a mask & gloves, no less be cramped up on a ship for a vacation. I seriously doubt if the cruise lines can hold out that long.
  2. It makes me wonder if any of the cruise lines can survive this pandemic. Even a vaccine doesn't give sufficient numbers of people that safe feeling.
  3. Yea, I am but the way things are going it doesn't appear to be promising even for the 2021 season. There are many more safer places to go to for vacations that are much more isolated. Unfortunately, our cruising days just might be over for many years. 🤧
  4. For only 25 %. It's not worth the risk. You know they'll be back sailing as soons as possible, virus or not.
  5. Exactly. Why pay for the experience of sailing on a cruise ship having to wear masks, social distancing and having many of the venues limiting the number of people allowed at one time? Almost everything on the ships was packed to capacity the way it was before the pandemic began so if they decide to sail at full capacity, finding a seat at the pool or entertainment venue will be almost impossible unless they do so by a lottery. That's not my idea of an enjoyable vacation. We'll be among those that wait for a vaccine & live with any mask & social distancing.
  6. Noro doesn't concern me a bit. I never bothered taking much precautions against it other than avoiding touching anything before eating & the washing of hands before. The chances of contacting the covid-19 on a ship are greatly increased since people are literally on top of one another at most venues. There are so many safer options for a vacation other than a cruise ship that we've put off for many years as cruising had become our go-to vacation option. I'll be ready to cruise again after they have a dependable vaccine & there are many test cruises taken by others who can test th
  7. I'd like to see around 150 cruises on all the cruise lines without a single infection before we book another one.
  8. We've never had any complaints about the food temp on either the Royal or Regal buffets either. I once complained to the sous chef about an item being to salty & he tasted it & had it removed from the line immediately. They do listen to the people & react accordingly. It also pays to complement them on items which were outstanding. I really hope when they're back in business the buffets are still in service.
  9. They sure would but in the mean time it would be passed on to a dozen others before being quarantined to their room. We'll wait for that vaccine before venturing back on another cruise. We've cruised so much in recent years it's time to explore some different adventures for a while until the dust settles. 😉
  10. They will as soon as someone reports it.
  11. I'll be excited to see many test cruises take place just to see how it goes in the future. Maybe in late 2021 we'll give it another try but only after there's a vaccine and there are dozens of successes without a single incident. Even at that, I doubt if a cruise will ever be the same again.
  12. I sort of doubt it. They'll be even more cautious about sailing on any ships since they've probably seen many cases of extreme situations & would rather wait it out until cruising gets back to somewhat more normal times. If that ever happens.
  13. We've had our flags out in our front yard for a while now along with our political sign for our candidate. I expect to see many more flags out this week.
  14. I'm also thinking about just a total refund since it doesn't appear to be likely that they'll be a vaccine for the immediate future. Not that we won't cruise in the future but until they come up with a viable solution, sailing on a ship just wouldn't be enjoyable.
  15. Yea it is. Other then your assigned location which is located on your cabin door, nothing earthshaking has changed since the discontinued bringing your life jacket.
  16. This occurs when a persons been to 40 or 50 drills and hears the same old thing time after time.
  17. They can't even keep track of the people who don't scan in at the muster stations before all this mess happened.😄 LOL
  18. That's very true. In that case people who mustered at an outside location could then be led to their proper indoor location by a crew member.
  19. In the outside occurrence that something does happen it doesn't make much difference where you were initially reported. They'll lead you to a different location to join the rest of the crowd.
  20. They could always schedule more muster locations around the ship so people could spread put some more.....like having some of them on deck, basketball court, gym, around the pools, etc.
  21. Always turn on the TV as soon as you get to the cabin to let it play the video while yo go to lunch. I suspect the amount of chairs available at the pools & piazza will be limited to keep plenty of space between people. I imagine that the chair hogs will be watched very closely since any seating will be at a premium. They could also limit the number of people in the show lounge for each performance so that spacing could also be increased....and at the same time increase the number or performances accordingly. It's not my idea of a fun cruise so we'll just wait
  22. While I can agree with the concept, it's only one of many gatherings that occur during a cruise. What would they intend to do about the embarkation seating, buffet lines, elevator crowding and show lounge? These things make me think about our future of cruising on any cruise line until they come up with a vaccine. While I would really hate to see the end of cruising as we have known it, I've got major concerns about the future of all the cruise lines right now.
  23. I hope they open up soon. I'd really like to see some test sailings before the fall season begins to see how many cases (or not) of the virus show up and just what physicians form Princess will be using.
  24. IF this outbreak continues possibly they could require people to be vaccinated and issue shot cards to prove it. (just speculation on my part)
