  1. Denise...I'm not sure I understand what dates you are on the Koningsdam to HI...is that January of '21? We are booked R/T SD for a 1/16 departure...and I believe it goes on to MX after that...is that the one you are booked on?
  2. Thanks Grandma for always keeping your cool and being so helpful. I'll miss you and your help!!
  3. Make that + one please!!! So agree with all your points!!
  4. Yes we would...in fact the last several cruises we have not disembarked at all. That is mainly because we are never sure how DH will be feeling regarding walking etc. But the sea days are my favorites and I have always said I would be happy to sail around in a circle!! :)...maybe I'll get my wish? 🙂 But we are lucky in that we have sailed quite a bit in the last 15 years and been to many ports. I'm sure I would feel differently if I was younger and new to cruising!!
  5. Please be tempted Paul...we could see you while you are in SD! 🙂 We have been on the Volendam and it is a nice sized ship..We've sailed HAL quite a bit because many sailings are to or from SD..not our favorite either but have always enjoyed the cruises.
  6. Please read your "small print"!! I also bought the policy that covers preexisting conditions...but there is a "bullet" point" that says ...nothing covers a pandemic!!! 😞
  7. I guess I don't understand...why do you think that RCCL (and or AZ) has created this "horrific PR nightmare they have created"??? Please explain???
  8. I was told that it could take up to 6 weeks to receive the FCC document/certificate..what ever it is that HAL will issue!! Maybe once we receive that we will have an answer?? At this point I think booking something in '20 might not be a great idea?? I have an early October cruise on X booked and I'm beginning to wonder what might happen to that one?
  9. Thanks Paul!! A disappointment but better safe than sorry at this point!!
  10. Well we love cruising!! And my DH's cardio doc told him on Friday that he didn't want him to take a T/A in April. He will be 84 this year...and has coronary artery disease...so he IS in the high risk demographic!! We are very disappointed...but we also take our doctor's advice!! If your chances are increased that you could die if you contract the virus then maybe you would think differently? It could be a VERY bad thing...even if we love cruising!!
  11. Our DD works for Azamara as a Business Development Manager...for the So Cal, AZ and NV markets. This means that she is the interface between AZ and the TAs in that region. We heard from her today ...and at least on the AZ front there is a hiring freeze and all non essential travel for AZ employees is banned. She is very concerned for the TAs and their income and business...and feels this may have long term consequences for the cruise industry. The dry dock for the "Journey" has been modified and they are quite concerned for what will be the status of the ships once the normal move to Europe should occur in April Just an FYI from her perspective.
  12. Paul...we have just cancelled a T/A for April on HAL...we both really wanted to go as we were meeting our German cruising friends in Amsterdam...but Kenneth's cardio doctor said he didn't think he should go...he will be 84 in July and has cardio vascular disease. You know me...I LOVE to cruise...but Kenneth's health is of course the #1 concern. Our situation may be very different than others..because of Kenneth's age. Let's hope for everyone's sake that we can all stay healthy...no matter what decision we make regarding cruising right now! 🙂 Best to you and Marsha!!
  13. I have been told by my TA that you can't apply the FCC to a current booking...can you do that because HAL cancelled and not you? There might be different "rules" based on who cancelled? We chose to cancel not HAL.
