  1. Received this morning from RC: Dear Guest, We’ve been diligently working to prepare for our Royal Comeback. It’s taken months of planning and coordinating to get up and running - from activating new homeports and communicating with local governments and authorities, to ensuring our new protocols maintain your wellbeing with our Healthy Sail Panel. Our original plan for Anthem of the Seas was to begin offering sailings to Spain, Portugal, and the Canary Islands beginning September 2021. However, we’ve decided to extend our British Isles cruise program on Anthem of the Seas. Unfortunately, this means your sailing has been cancelled. We know how much time and effort go into planning your vacation and apologize for any inconvenience caused by this change. Below, we’ve outlined your options along with a few additional details. Of course they wait until after final payment to make the announcement. We have three more cruises booked and at this point we just want our deposits back. Not cruising again until RC gets their act together. Terrible way to treat customers by RC.
  2. Why do you think that? Ships don't have to be refueled at their home port they can be refueled where the LNG barge is. No?
  3. Yup All Inclusive resorts a good alternative to cruising. No more cruises for us until they get this mess straightened out. I just hope we get our money back if we cancel because of their protocols.
  4. This is ridiculous. Make final payment, have cruise canceled, wait for refund. No more cruising for us until they get straight or the CSO is canceled. There are other options that are less stressful.
  5. Thanks. I read the article but it doesn't say they have reached an agreement. Wouldn't RCG have made an official announcement if there was an agreement.
  6. Yeah, no, that's not gonna happen. I can think of lots more compelling reasons to get the vaccine than having Dinner with gov horse face. 🤮
  7. If Murphy has anything to say about cruising it's going to be a long wait for cruising to restart from Cape Liberty.
  8. Thursday Cloudy and more humid with a couple of showers and a thunderstorm; breezy in the afternoon high in the mid 70s Hot next week with highs in the 90s
  9. NJ has the highest death rate per hundred thousand from covid, 293 per hundred thousand https://www.statista.com/statistics/1109011/coronavirus-covid19-death-rates-us-by-state/
  10. If this is how cruising is going to be I think we are done with cruising. We just returned from a seven night all inclusive Caribbean vacation that had none of the ridiculous CDC guidelines. It was so enjoyable that we booked another stay at the same resort. We have four cruises booked and if/when they are canceled we will continue to vacation in the Caribbean but not on a cruise ship. At least not until cruising returns to something resembling normal.
  11. Thanks for your reply. Ships at sea would seem to me to be the perfect environment to examine the spread and effects of long term close contact. A petri dish at sea.
  12. How is the shipping industry handling Covid? Are there special precautions for sailors? I assume freight is still moving so they must be doing something to protect the crew. It would be informative to see the numbers infected, hospitalized, treated, recovered in that close of an environment. How is the navy doing with the covid?
  13. Passengers have been passing through EWR daily for months. Is there any difference between passing through an airline terminal and a cruise terminal? Just curious.
  14. We were upgraded to a GS on one of our Explorer cruises , after that there was no going back to an inside stateroom. 🙂 Cheers! 🍸
  15. The day the cruise line industry starts adopting the same invasive, inconvenient procedures as the airlines is the day we stop cruising. At that point you might as well hop on a plane and fly to your destination. No thanks.
  16. Or an airplane or a train or a bus or a subway............
  17. I have a class A commercial drivers license. I'm also over 70. Every two years I am required to have a physical to confirm that I am physically fit to drive an eighty thousand pound vehicle yet the government says I need a doctors note to take a cruise because cruising is way more stressful than maneuvering an eighty thousand pound vehicle through NJ rush hour traffic.🙄
  18. No. Good luck finding a doctor to sign the form RC requires. a. Effective Monday, March 16, boarding will be denied to any person age 70 or older, unless the guest provides written verification from a qualified treating physician that certifies the person has no severe, chronic medical condition and is fit to travel. b. Effective Friday, March 13, boarding will be denied to any person with a severe, chronic medical condition, including those specified by the CDC. Guests of all ages will be screened prior to boarding, regarding underlying health issues that may prevent them from sailing, i.e. chronic heart, lung, liver, or kidney disease, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, or cancer.
  19. I agree with you here but being 70 and over isn't a disability, is it? 🙂 Cheers! 🍸🍸
