  1. How long before our cruise on 11.28.21 will we receive our medallions?
  2. We are booked for Nov 28 on Caribbean Princess and have downloaded eveything on the Medallion App, sort of a pain in the rear end but all in all there were no major issues. That being said we liked the way things were before, putting all your info in your PC and printing out boarding passes and luggage tags. It will be intersting how things work with the Medallion while on board.
  3. Thats why we are looking at Oct. 17, free upgrade from an outside to a veranda at a really low price. We, even though vaccinated are still a little hesitant in booking a cruise but we have not been anywhere since Nov of 2019 and really need a cruise. Thanks for helping out.
  4. Yes, sorry I should have explained it better.
  5. Just called MSC and the agent had no idea what percentage of their ships are limited to, why would they not know and what are they hiding. We really like MSC and would like to sail on October 17 but every other line I have called gives you the exact percentage of passengers the ships are limited. Can someone help me out.
  6. Royal and the Regal, very classy ships.
  7. I just want this damn virus to go away so we can return to normal life, after that everything else will fall in place including cruising.
  8. In the old days it meant something, thus the word POSH, Port out, Starboard home. You didn't want to be on the same side as the sun as there was no AC on those old ocean liners especially on north-south routes. We have never booked a cruise caring what side of the ship our cabin was on.
  9. Late November 2019 on Niuew Amsterdam, had 2 cruises booked for March and July of 2020 and always book in late Nov. So we lost 3 cruises and have no idea when we will cruise again.
  10. I can't ever remember a hurricane in the Caribbean in January. We live in Florida and have been tracking storms since 1993, hurricane season is from June 1 until Nov 31. We have cruised in the Caribbean many times in January you have no worries, just nice weather.
  11. Here's a fact, number 7 smells a lot better than number 2.
  12. With cases spiking again and the vaccine now looking months away, I think you made the right move. We probably won't sail until 2022 either unless there's some kind of miracle and the virus dies away on it's own which happened with the 1918 pandemic.
  13. We aren't big drinkers, one cocktail each day before dinner in the Passport lounge. If the rumors are true then we won't be sailing on Celebrity anymore, why pay for something we aren't going to use.
  14. The Edge and Apex are not that much larger than the Equinox and her sisters and only about 100 more passengers.
  15. I have to disagree on your ratings, none of the mainstream cruise lines are 5 star. You want 5 star you need to sail on lines like Seabourn, Crystal and Hapag-Lloyd, their Europa and Europa 2 are both rated at 5.5 stars. There are only 3 more ships in the world that are rated 5 stars and all belong to Siverseas Cruise Line. As far as the mainstream lines go, Celebrity is the best, We've sailed with Princess 20 times and are Elite status and believe me, Princess is not anywhere close to Celebrity, most of their ships are rated at 3.5 stars. They have gone downhill in recent years with their food budget decreasing along with other cost cutting measures. I would rate Holland America who we have sailed with 22 times, close second to Celebrity, very classy and clean ships with outstanding service. BTW, the star ratings are from the Berlitz Cruising and Cruise Ship annual publication by Douglas Ward but I agree with his ratings and purchase his updated book every year.
  16. What do they do about other diseases? We've been on 62 cruises and to tell the truth we believe the lines have been lax in cleanliness, ventilation and buffet procedures. Holland America is our line of choice and they do the best job in cleanliness and buffet procedures, not sure about ventilation.
  17. I'll be the one to decide when my cruising days are over, not you.
  18. That's exactly what we are hoping for, a vaccine that is extremely effective like the Salk Vaccine.
  19. I'm not sure what they can do but we have decided not to cruise if there is any kind of chance of catching Covid, probably looking at another year or two before the virus is not part of our daily lives.
  20. Probably cost cutting measures, with no income it's hard running a company with business as usual.
  21. Agree 100%, we love cruising with 62 of them but I'm not getting on a ship until it's 99.75 % to do so especially from Covid. I did not go with 100% because there are other bugs that can be caught on a cruise ship like the Norovirus and other flu strains and colds. It's just that this Covid crap is another animal especially for people like us who are in the mid 70s
