  1. Good point.... but we now live in world were tech changes are forced on people.... Talking about telephones... the lane line was very reliable and needed no power the Voip is not so reliable, after being forced to switch..... also power goes out no phone and as far as mobile phones, can be good.... but do we really need to contactable 24/7 ? No I do not carry it round all the time....
  2. quite so Les.... Without the Vaccine we are dead in the water.... which is depressing......
  3. Thinking thought The perfect cruise ? It really depends on one's expectations and if you are glass half empty or half full person... Some will find fault with everything.... Other delighted having everything done for them.... To us... we go with the flow and have enjoyed all our cruises.... maybe not perfect, but damn good Don
  4. Just a thought it was posted on april fools day..... and why would anybody live on burgers 24/7 An image the Golden Arches having a store on a cruise ship...... Not Likely...
  5. The old SOP's needed them for ISO9000 at our company...... we had them everything.... including how to make an SOP....... we were waiting for one on How to use the Lavatory Also it was a running battle working in R&D,,, a lot of the times we never did the same thing twice.... then we quizzed them.... do we need an SOP if it catches fire... what if it goes BOOM...... Right back to Cruising = Vaccination .... Going to bunning today... with masks and keeping our distance..... Nobody else was..... So is Covid over... all finished with... ???
  6. Started "Road Trips" with parent in the 60's stopping at motels, then start my our in the 70's. camping etc... then move on to Motels and Cottages, etc... Having nowhere to park an RV or Caravan... did not go in that direction . They look amazing... but not forus... and camping has stopped it is for the young people and we are more into comfort now..... I agreed I hope cruising will get back to a product we know..... But at the moment from where we stand... don't see it, happening this year.. and unsure about next year... the other point of supply and demand,
  7. Bit if worry Les.... State by state equals revolving doors and a very open and shut case...... as well as who's got the keys ??? Don
  8. I feel Covid is far from over.... fourth wave in europe.... india passes US for most infections in a day here in Australia states are still opening and closing like a merry-go-round..... Vaccination slow.... the cruise draw is closed...... Now talk here Travel Bubble with NZ is off for cruises until 22-23 season..... and My thought is the 21-22 season just local is shaky. so along with prices going up, unsure of product ( restrictions etc ) ... Cruising is more and more looking like a been there done that thing.... So back to road trips
  9. Land travel Before or After the cruise? First question is the cruise to go cruising or to get somewhere, something included in a bigger holiday...... There does seem that some on CC, simply cruise for being at sea on a ship, at the other end is those how cruise to bucket list, and out of the way places... Both are good.... it is up to the person before,after, or neither ? Agreed travelling a long way for a cruise, train trip, or other, arrived at least the day before. Also time restriction people have......
  10. I understand the pain ( could be in the back ) Never had the problem, as never stayed in a balcony cabin....lol Question... why have room service... if there is nowhere to eat it..... except in bed..... never been one to have food in bed.... that it why we have table and chairs,,,,, So bring back barrel chairs........ one can dream can't they
  11. I am surprised..... when will we know ??..... When the fat lady sings......lol
  12. Absolutely.. from our home port... bags are packed...... I am dreaming Where would i go first ?? well princess... could homeport out of our usual port..... what ship... no idea.. was the golden... then was the sapphire... now looking like the grand...... probably whatever ship nobody else wants ... Itentaries ... then had some great ones on offer for oct-dec 2020... the only ones i have seen are same old one..... Would like something 13+ nights (could be B2B) from homeport... going where ever ...... adn not over the top pricing.... So where wo
  13. I think the thing it with this.... it be happy with your lot ( or what you have ) I think it is called contentment...... example we live in an apartment, nothing flash, it has been all our's for the last 15 years, it has most things needed to be comfortable ( including a Dishwasher and a big TV) drive a 2008 car... Point is by doing this we have had some great holidays... Could have upgraded our abode, but holidays are more fun.... Still hoping for another cruise ......one day Don
  14. Well I expected it.... and there was a glimmer of hope... no rolling over... this time,,,, It is time to look at the Cruising thing, as been there done than..... and more forward with this thing I believe is called "road trip"where you follow a road....... by putting a tiger in your tank adn Go Well... Go Shell ( or some other place ).. But for the sea side feel you could fill up at Neptune........ and get a clean windscreen... Don
