  • Favorite Cruise Destination Or Port of Call
  1. Shel Silverstein (a poet) wrote about this situation: "Do you want to visit the wonderful far off land of Oz where the wizard lives and scarecrows can dance and the road is made of yellow bricks and everything is emerald green? "Well you CAN’T because there is no land of Oz and there is no Tin Woodsman and there IS NO SANTA CLAUS! “Maybe someday you can go to Detroit.”
  2. Total Covid cases now up to nine: 7 passengers and 2 crew. https://quirkycruise.com/first-caribbean-cruise-ends-early/
  3. Four close associates of the original passenger with Covid have tested positive, and another one had antibodies. As stated above, it can take 3 days for the infection to be detectable, while quarantined. There are no balconies. What kind of ventilation system does SeaDream have? The ventilation system will be a major stress point. However, there are no signs it has moved without close contact so far!

  4. My refund for an October 3rd cruise came yesterday, Oct 20.
  5. Poor Holland America, and other cruise lines, too! I'm on the "If the cruise line doesn't have well-documented stringently enforced mask & distancing rules, then I'm not sailing -- or I'm suing for reckless endangerment if they aren't enforced" end of the spectrum. Cruise lines won't be able to win, no matter what.
  6. I'm having a similar problem. My guess is that HAL is waiting until the CDC determines ship capacity issues. It's better to assign category guarantees than to assign potentially unavailable cabins if the CDC says "every 3rd cabin must be empty but connected cabins count as one-cabin unless the ship sails on a Tuesday or the ship's cook is Irish, in which case every 4th cabin must be empty."
  7. Land of the Midnight Sun! If you like to sleep in a dark room, you will need to bring clips for the curtains and good eyeshades. Having daylight on two sides of the stateroom 24 hours a day may account for the lower price.
  8. My letter for the replacement cruise for the Ryndam/Rotterdam said "Your cruise fare and promotions have been protected and you will be in the same (or equivalent) stateroom category." Is there a list of cabins considered equivalent to an aft VS? I did request "no upgrade" for the cruise. Thanks.
  9. Add Terns of Endearment (Donna Andrews, humor, but includes norovirus outbreak...)
  10. I asked for a refund for an October cruise yesterday. Today, the Myers Rum Refund arrived. Of course, it was for the old $36/bottle price.
  11. My June 1, 2021 Baltic cruise has been rescheduled to May 9th. Will the final payment be due a month earlier now? A minimal search found no answer, but apologies if this is something I should have found myself.
