  1. Wow! I didn’t know that about Celebrity! I might have to give them chance!
  2. Not worth it to me! I always get the spa pass though and I love it.
  3. All the posts about the epic just crack me up. We spend so little time in our cabin that none of the layout weirdness bothers us. We spent 11 days on her in January 2020 and had an absolute blast. We are not picky people though and not much bothers us.
  4. I would cancel. Not out of worry for becoming ill myself (fully vaccinated) but the company I work for has a very strict time and attendance policy and I would most likely be terminated for being on vacation and if I have to quarantine. It’s just too much time away. My husband works for a government contractor and even they have loosened some restrictions, cruising is still a big fat NO. We tried for a late Alaska cruise. 😢
  5. I live near Seattle and the weather here is usually extremely windy and very very wet that part of October . We cruised to Alaska for our first cruise in September 2009 and it was very cold. I ended up buying some warmer socks for our excursions. The best weather we had was in Ketchikan and we ended up doing a snorkel excursion in a full wet suit. It was really great! I think as long as you are prepared for wet weather, and probably not much open on excursions, you will have a great time! I would love to sit cozy and warm in a ship.
  6. My husbands grandmother has been a widow for about 20+ years. She travels extensively (pre covid) and goes with some really great tour operators. She is also part of a national Widow Persons group that does a ton of local tours and trips and has even cruised with them. It might make the first few trips a bit easier if you are in a group setting. My condolences on the loss of your husband.
  7. The spa space is probably the best in the fleet! I have cruised on the Epic 3 times now and she is a quirky ship but still fun. I don’t enjoy the casino placement.
  8. The epic walking track is lame. I love the Epic with its many quirks it that area really annoys me. I love to jog in the mornings (not on a treadmill) and I just gave up.
  9. Fingers crossed! I live across the Puget Sound and can be on a ferry and to the cruise terminal in 30 minutes!
  10. Me! I work retail for a very busy retailer and my reward after holidays is a cruise in January.
  11. “The bill would temporarily alleviate restrictions for cruise ships transporting passengers between Washington and Alaska and allow cruise ships to sail to Alaska without requiring they stop in Canada. Murkowski has said her bill is in response to measures put in place by Canada that restrict cruise ships in Canadian waters until 2022.” I just saw the notification that you had quoted me.
  12. I live near Seattle and I would gladly jump on an Alaska cruise! Our government said that if things continue on the path they are on, WA state can be fully reopened on June 30th! Im not optimistic that this bill will get where it needs to be in time but maybe they can bring some ships here for a west coast cruise? Stop in Mexico for sure to appease the law but I would love to do San Diego and San Francisco.
  13. The week after usually has most kids back in school until winter break begins.
  14. I just put a deposit down for that exact cruise.
