  1. No, this is likely not going to be the new norm. People are confusing emergency measures right now with permanent restrictions. Once a vaccine has been made, distributed and the population immune to the current threat, there really will be no reason to impose ablanket age related moratorium. Spif, as long as you stay healthy, there will be no reason to think your cruising days are over.
  2. Jim, when do you travel? With Princess cancelling all cruises until May 11th, I think it is only a matter of hours before RCI group does the same thing. The travel ban last night pretty much sealed the deal. The cruise lines just can't run an operation with so many restrictions and the avalanche of changes can completely overwhelm the operation.
  3. The european travel ban pretty much sealed the deal. RCI group isn't far behind.

  5. They really had no choice. You can't run an operation not knowing where you can sail, if your customers will be able to travel to your ships and if you have no way to keep your customers and crew safe. Others will no doubt follow suit and my guess is that it will last longer than 60 days.
  6. Have fun and safe travels Jim. Funny enough I was just thinking that it must be about time for your next adventure. It will be interesting to see if the vibe on the ship is different from your previous cruises.
  7. Hey Paul! Coincidentally, I found out just the other day that I have friends on this cruise. I'm sure at some point you will run into them since they frequent the bars regularly. Chris and May are from Toronto and are very friendly. Have a great cruise guys!
  8. You've got some wonderful images there! Thank you for sharing this as I enjoyed the whole thing on a very cold and crisp, waaaaaaaaaaay below seasonal, November morning!
  9. Did you or your partner ever get an explanation from Celebrity?
  10. Was your friend's email address ever used in a form on your computer? If it was, it could be that it was memorized and entered when you filled in your booking. When you and your friend traveled together, who was the primary on the booking? There is an explanation for it and it is not necessarily incompetence, or bad record keeping.
  11. Op, think of it as an adventure. After all, that is what your handle is, right? With an eight week old newborn, I don't have a cruise in sight so I would gladly trade places with you. Try and leave that dark cloud of negative energy at the pier and remember - you're going to be enjoying a week on the water while some of us are stuck on land, in the rain, and we have to make our own beds each morning!
  12. Jim, I'd recommend removing the photo of your boarding pass. Someone with nefarious intentions could do a lot with the ticket number and PNR visible. Looking forward to following along on your review. regrettably, no cruising for me anytime soon!
  13. Jim, have you considered Uber? We used uber when we docked at BCN last November off the Eclipse and it was painless.
  14. Very nice! Been 27 years since I was in Tokyo. Great city. I'm looking forward to your reports and photos. Smooth seas!
