  1. We loved the Grand when we went last year to Alaska. We were on the Emerald for a Cabo trip and I believe that is a sister ship of Sapphire. If I had to choose between the two, we enjoyed the Grand much more.
  2. Looks like no one is sailing this year! https://www.carnivalcorp.com/news-releases/news-release-details/carnival-corporations-north-american-brands-extend-pause-cruise?fbclid=IwAR01uPPXhAiiWjQJFwLyqmTQ-e6E_7jmsMUrtHiFleqacELzZiJdizLZC4w
  3. Official names have been announced for the virus responsible for COVID-19 (previously known as “2019 novel coronavirus”) and the disease it causes. The official names are: Disease coronavirus disease (COVID-19) Virus severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) Why do the virus and the disease have different names? Viruses, and the diseases they cause, often have different names. For example, HIV is the virus that causes AIDS. People often know the name of a disease, but not the name of the virus that causes it. There are different processes, and purposes, for naming viruses and diseases. Viruses are named based on their genetic structure to facilitate the development of diagnostic tests, vaccines and medicines. Virologists and the wider scientific community do this work, so viruses are named by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV). Diseases are named to enable discussion on disease prevention, spread, transmissibility, severity and treatment. Human disease preparedness and response is WHO’s role, so diseases are officially named by WHO in the International Classification of Diseases (ICD). ICTV announced “severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)” as the name of the new virus on 11 February 2020. This name was chosen because the virus is genetically related to the coronavirus responsible for the SARS outbreak of 2003. While related, the two viruses are different. WHO announced “COVID-19” as the name of this new disease on 11 February 2020, following guidelines previously developed with the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/technical-guidance/naming-the-coronavirus-disease-(covid-2019)-and-the-virus-that-causes-it
  4. I seriously do no see Los Angeles allowing cruises out any time soon. Our kids are not even allowed at parks yet!
  5. No travel agent here. I do not see a credit card on file, on my account?
  6. We have not officially canceled, but we are certainly NOT paying. I seriously could not find the cancel button, so we will see what happens when our date is up, tomorrow. haha
  7. I just saw the email about our final payment.. I laughed.. and wanted to cry. We are right after yours, so just seeing what plays out. Sadly, not going to go this round. We just might hold off for a few years until our oldest can be in a cabin with the younger 2.
  8. We are booked, but just have not canceled, sadly. I live here in the Los Angeles area, and I cannot imagine them being allowed to doc. Our kids are not even allowed in school in most of the areas. I cannot imagine LA County being open enough to allow cruises. That might be equivalent to allowing concerts. So sad though, I would love to chill on a balcony with my husband... the ENTIRE time. hahaha I am more curious on what Princess is going to do and what will happen. Our deposit was from FCC so not too worried about that.
  9. We had a corner aft on the Grand (also on Emerald to Mexico) and it is the BEST honestly. We were covered and never had a hot patio area being where we were. We had the best of both sides. When we were at the glacier, we went up top for a while, went back to our room, when the boat was turned AFT to the glacier, we were full view and watched it get smaller in the distance leaving Tracy Arm. It was BEAUTIFUL!
  10. We have been scheduled on the 26th. We booked with the future cruise credit we had from our previous cruise. We have not canceled, because I just am more curious on what they will do. We will NOT be paying anything out of pocket. I would honestly be shocked, as well, if it went forward. I mean, our kids are not even allowed at school and most us in the area are still trying to be safer at home. I would love to go lock myself on my balcony and have food and drinks delivered to me, to my room... but we know that would not happen hahaha
  11. On another cruise ship company, a clothing MLM takes over the entire ship! I have heard stories of people not knowing their party cruise was their cruise and that was a bit much. Just think of an entire ship in crazy looking print clothing, getting their drinking on. Sounds fun for them, who did not pay for their cruise! hahaha
  12. Only certain people think that. Those that believe in science, also will wear masks in public 😉
  13. I am not expecting our December cruise. We have not done anything about it, as our deposit was with that one program (escaping my brain at the moment).
  14. Raspberry Romance was my favorite. Only because when I was feeling a bit off from the waves, it calmed my stomach so I actually wanted to eat. There were a few from Crooners that we just loved. I would have to locate a menu 😉
