  1. My wife and I are booked for February 20, 2021. Not canceled yet, but I feel that will change. It's unfortunate, but there are worse things in the world.
  2. We had a 4pm flight out of FLL last year, so we did a Best of Miami tour excursion through Carnival. We got to do some site seeing and explore a little bit. They hold on to your luggage on the tour bus which was a plus. They drop you off at the airport in the end. Worked out very well and enjoyed the tour.
  3. Hopefully February 20, 2021 on Mardi Gras and February 5, 2022 on Horizon.
  4. Remedy (posted by John Heald) 1.25 oz 8 year rum 1.25 oz coconut rum .5 oz orange juice .5 oz pineapple juice .5 oz coconut simple syrup .25 oz lime juice Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. I make my own coconut simple syrup: 1 cup sugar 1 cup water 1 tsp coconut extract
  5. The Funship. 1.25 oz white rum 1 oz vodka 1 oz apricot brandy 1 oz amaretto 1 oz orange juice 1 oz pineapple juice 1 oz sweet and sour mix .5 oz grenadine Mix all ingredients in a shaker with ice.
  6. Yes, very simple. -2 oz vodka -1 oz chipotle pineapple syrup (I use Monin) -1oz pineapple juice -1/2 oz simple syrup -6 to 7 mint leaves Add all ingredients (save 1 mint leaf) into shaker with ice. Strain into glass and add mint leaf. Enjoy!
  7. Until there is a vaccine, it's hard to say how cruises will look if/when they resume. Any idea thrown out there is possible though. After a vaccine is available to everyone, I think cruises will return somewhat back to normal. Some changes I can see happening are: -Ships only allowed to sail at 80% guest capacity. -No more self-serve buffet. Stations will have employees serving guests. -Reduced amount of pool loungers to allow some extra space. -MDR going mostly to a table for 2 per stateroom. Tables can be combined (or large table can be requested) for families or large groups sailing together. -Extra amount of hand sanitizers and hand washing stations set up around the ship.
  8. Funship, Remedy, and Chipotle Pineapple Martini amongst others. My wife and I would watch the bartenders make the drinks and then try to guess what is used and how much when we get back home. Some trial and error, which could be fun. 😄
  9. My wife and I sailed Horizon in 2019 but were unable to book Havana. We booked for 2022 (February) too. Did it early so we could get a room in there this time lol.
  10. Not sure if this helps, but someone posted a link to a drink spreadsheet to help calculate prices on here a couple of years ago. Many of the drinks are listed.
  11. That's key. If one ship has a quarantine situation, the whole industry could be forced to stop sailing once again.
  12. They are still flying, but a lot of planes have been grounded and many of those flights don't have as many passengers. When you say 90+ days, you mean from now? That I can see. I'm sure people are hoping to be able to travel this summer and may be buying tickets at low prices.
  13. I hope you're right and those that have summer cruises booked are able to sail. My main concern is if sporting events are allowed 0 fans, then I'm not sure how they justify cruises to have any passengers. Now, if/when stadiums are allowed to have spectators (even at a reduced capacity), then cruise lines should be able to get the green light.
  14. I only brought up the sports aspect as far as fans in attendance goes (nothing to do with the billionaire owners or millionaire players finances). If they do not allow fans in the stands, it will be hard to imagine other industries such as cruise lines being allowed to sail with 2 or 3 thousand people on board. As for sports coming back, I'm all for it, even with nobody in attendance. As long as they can provide a safe environment for the players and others involved, they should go ahead and do it.
