  1. Do the unvaccinated folks have something that tells them apart for the vaccinated ?
  2. On current cruises, they talk about cloth bracelets to be worn AT ALL TIMES designating that you are vaccinated. Are these traclets in addition to the cloth bracelets? Otherwise, how does staff determine who is vaccinated or not (and should be wearing masks)?
  3. Is there a TV channel that broadcasts the Captain announcements? I have heard that the ‘front of ship’ webcam channel does but others say NO. Can anyone confirm?
  4. A cruise blogger posted a video saying that on the 2nd sailing of The Edge, an unvaccinated couple left a shore excursion to site see on their own. This is a violation of the rules. They got caught and were kicked off the ship at a foreign port. Does anyone have firsthand knowledge of this?
  5. ? You stopped going because you didn’t like the music ? OR ? You stopped in for a drink because you liked the music?
  6. My last cruise had a placard in the bathroom stating towels left hanging will not be replaced but towels on the floor will be replaced. I found they replaced even the towels left hanging. I guess old habits die hard.
  7. Thanks all. I realize it has been out of service - as have all the ships- for over a year but the message was that the tendering dock was the wrong height for the port transfer vessels and that the life boats were the right height but too unstable to use in rocky seas. After several passengers fell, they stopped using the Magic Carpet for tendering. Also was mentioned that the Magic Carpet is too windy for dining so it is now planned to only be a bar. Just wondering if this was a single event or a new policy.
  8. Is it true that they no longer use the Magic Carpet as a tendering dock or as a restaurant? Someone reported this on Facebook.
  9. To Dr TeeRick or anyone else ‘in the know’, what does it take for these vaccines to move out of Emergency Use Authorization and into regular approved vaccines. Thanks
  10. I have had fellow passengers take my wet clothes out of the washer (when it was done) in order to use it themselves. They piled my wet clothes on the counter because I wasn't there when the washer ended. Also want to be there right when the dryer ends to hang/fold my dry clothes. This means sitting in the laundry room waiting for the end of each phase washing / drying.
  11. I have enjoyed reading and learning through this thread. I wonder is this thread breaking a record for number of posts / views on Cruise Critic?
  12. You all think the 2021 summer in the Med will be canceled?
  13. What is your guess for a REALISTIC start up date?
  14. Is it widely accepted that even if you have had your 2 doses of vaccine, you will still be required to have a negative test before flying / cruising?
  15. Barcelona is shut down from COVID and Americans are banned from entering so I am wondering if this September is realistic for cruising ?
  16. I am talking no mask wearing, crowded elevators, self serve buffets, etc.......you know “normal”. OK if they require a vaccine before boarding but then no more COVID restrictions. Fall of 2021 ? Next year? Never??
  17. Sounds good since I live in CA but apparently it is still up the County because my County still says ONLY health care providers and resident of Long Term Care facilities.
  18. To slow down the “bleed” and set a pace for all the phone calls and refunds. They may be cancelling a few ships at a time.
  19. The cancellations in Europe are only for Edge and Constellation. They have other ships sailing Europe in 2021 that they have not cancelled.........yet.
  20. Apex, 12 day, Barcelona (RT) to Greek Isles, Sept 18, 2021
  21. This is my trial booking. See the MembersOnly Discount. AI is still there
  22. Nope..... you don’t lose the perks. I was offered a 5% discount but still had AI, for the booking I was using as a test. I am just at the Classic level for CC.
