  1. I hope you have a wonderful birthday trip no matter what you choose! I’m looking at something to celebrate my birthday October 2021 and this year is our 15th wedding anniversary and all our plans were of course cancelled but we are looking to maybe combining these missed milestones. I would love to do a 21 day cruise!
  2. Have you considered the Epic? It has the best spa of all the ships. The bathroom layout is a little weird but it doesn’t both us. We did an 11 day to the southern Caribbean in January and it was amazing! I’m a sun worshiper but we did see some amazing things at all the islands. My husband is a giant kid and loves the slides. 🤣
  3. Yikes, I highly doubt that. Every tourist economy is suffering.
  4. 1: my husband works for the DOD and travel always has to be approved with a full itinerary. 2. I guess you just have to have a positive test? If you come back from vacation and have it, they assume you got it on vacation. Especially if you live somewhere with a low Covid rate. 3. For my job and my husbands, it more to have less exposure. A cruise would put us with 4500 strangers. Likely no one from our area. 4. My job doesn’t care where I go as long as I’m willing to take an unpaid quarantine. My husband absolutely can be fired for lying about his vacation or destination. 5. I don’t see it as micromanaging. I appreciate what both of our companies are doing to slow the spread of the virus. To be fair, my husband has always had to submit a vacation request with an itinerary if we are traveling more than 100 miles from his base.
  5. I have a similar issue. Our company is very generous with PTO but we can only roll over 40hours.
  6. We don’t have anything booked for the first time in years. We can only cruise once a year usually but we had hoped to go to Alaska this year and do something for our 15th wedding anniversary in November. We won’t cruise for a long time. It makes me sad to think that but I know things won’t be the same and my husbands job has very strict rules about travel. My husband wants to buy a boat, but I think a small travel trailer would be a better buy. We live in Seattle area so we could definitely take some beautiful road trips. I just went back to work last week so I’m not really thinking of any time off yet. I’m just saying 2020 is a wash and we can start fresh next year.
  7. @chipmaster that is a huge bummer. We recently rented a cabin near Mt.Baker. It was so nice to see different walls and scenery. I hope you can find somewhere else to head too.
  8. I’m sorry! My in-laws were hoping to fly in and see us for 4th of July but they also would need to quarantine and they just can’t afford to take that kind of time off.
  9. We have a local boat club that we can rent from I’ll keep pushing that!
  10. 🤣🤣🤣 He isn’t although I’m sure he is a very nice man.
  11. I keep telling him we won’t use it as much as he thinks we will. We live in Seattle!! It rains most of the year 😂😂
  12. So update on travel ban and quarantine. I am back to work as of last Sunday and we also have a quarantine rule in effect for any air travel. My husbands job rescinded the travel ban for 1 week, saw the escalating numbers and brought it back. Now the Dept of Defense has a 100 mile travel limit so even if my husbands company changes again, he can’t go anywhere. We have a friends wedding in October that we may have to cancel. I can’t take 3 weeks off. 😩 In positive news, we are considering buying a boat!
  13. Also here in Seattle, we haven’t even been approved to move to phase 2. I don’t see these cruises happening even if for some reason, Canada magically allowed cruises or Alaska waived the test requirements. Seattle just isn’t ready in regards to the virus yet.
  14. 🤣🤣🤣🤣 As a very realist personality myself, the optimism in your posts always lifts my spirits. Have you considered buying your own boat? My husband is obsessed with the idea of owning a boat.
  15. 🤣 I wouldn’t be able to cruise this year anyway as my job and my husbands require 14 day quarantine for any flights you take or cruises. We both can’t be away for that long but I really do love watching these boards to see what is happening.
