  1. Wow! So they knew that it would be cut short. I think the ship turned around after 2 days or so. Free must have been tempting.
  2. Thanks. So you enjoyed Royal Caribbean and Royal. We'll look at alternatives. We have only cruised 3 times and all Celebrity. We loved it but searching for more reasonable alternatives.
  3. Were you in the corner suite? We were lucky too. We had made a trip to Costco before leaving on the cruise and had lots of essential paper products. Maris
  4. They are saying we’ll be vaccinated by July but I’m not optimistic. We have started looking at cruises but Celebrity is looking very expensive. I’m sure the cruise lines are hurting right now but the high prices are discouraging us. We may have to consider other cruise lines. Maris
  5. I’ll have to take a look at that too, though I think it will be too early for us. No idea when we might be vaccinated. This is the time of year that I really feel the need to get away. Maris
  6. I'm going to start looking for 2022 cruises today. The temperature is going down to -19 C tonight and feel like - 29. That is why I love to be away at this time of year. Maris
  7. A year ago today we were waiting in Fort Lauderdale to start our amazing cruise. We had no idea what the future would bring. But now I think we can see light at the end of the tunnel. We’re starting to watch cruise videos again. 😃
  8. Kearney Yes it was a great cruise. We were very fortunate to get home before everything shut down. We totally self-isolated for the first two weeks. Hard to believe that we are still having to be distant three and a half months later. We still haven’t held our grandchild born the end of March. We haven’t booked anything else at this point. I would love to cruise again but sadly don’t know if we ever will. I can’t imagine wearing a mask and social distancing during a cruise. Keep healthy Maris
  9. I sure hope we’ll able to cruise again by 2022. We discovered cruising late in life but I would sure like to try it again. My brother had told us for years how great cruising was. Glad we finally listened to him. You’ll love Celebrity. Yes crazy times right now. We thought when we got back from the cruise in March we’d self isolate for 2 weeks and then be back to normal. Who knew. Keep healthy & safe Maris
  10. Hi Thanks so much for that advice. I know I’ll read this entire review again before we go on another cruise. I may not get lost again. Maris
  11. Thank you Lisa! I loved doing this report and it’s quite easy to get great photos on those beautiful islands and in Cartagena. I haven’t even thought about cruising for awhile. My brother pointed out to me that a couple of people had recently read my review . Now I’m thinking about cruising again, just not sure when. It’s been summer here in Ontario for a few weeks now. I’m in camping mode. But hopefully we will cruise again. We’re just waiting until things start up again so we can read other reviews and decide to try it again. We loved this itinerary so much we’d like to do it again.
  12. Annie Yes, I would love to hear about your experience in Mexico. Pictures too. And I’m able to view the videos so keep them coming. I’m flattered to be included with that group who helped inspire you to write this. Thanks for sharing your experience. Great review. Maris
  13. Hi Annie Enjoying your review. You have a great memory for detail. I got a kick out of a couple of things here. One, all the things that you wanted to try & didn’t and that Dave made a habit of getting the coffee each morning. We did the same cruise in March (the Reflection’s last cruise). I made a note of all the things I wanted to do & didn’t do them and I made a habit of getting the coffee in the morning. Never went to Al Bacio though. I loved the cruise and I’m looking forward to reading all about your experience. Maris
  14. Linda Thanks so much for your flattering comments again. I am so glad that you enjoyed my report. These days are rather long. Everyone feels like Sunday and my husband and I are both retired. At least you have someone who comes home at 7:30. Though it's late, it would be really tough to be all on your own for 24-7. And you have those adorable puppies. Are you able to get out for walks with them? I won't be writing anymore in this report other than to answer people who have commented. We are keeping fairly busy doing yard work and remodelling our basement. Our young dog
  15. Thank you mouseRD. I’m hoping that next year our world will be back to ‘normal’. Whatever that looks like. Maris
