  1. We are pretty comfortable with most of the restrictions on board. I would like to see what kind of "walking" excursions the cruise lines are going to offer since we cruise with two scooters and generally go off on our own and explore, which wouldn't be allowed initially. However, we are also fine with staying on board too. I'm fine with wearing a mask in common areas and while waiting in line if I can't social distance, however if I'm on deck and there is no one around me any my cabin mate, I would like to be able to take my mask off. We love to go to the top deck and just sit i
  2. We currently have a 4/9 cruise booked out of Tampa - 10 nights. I'm thinking this cruise is going to get cancelled since the reports from the Tampa Port are stating they don't anticipate cruising to begin again until mid-April. Also, being a 10 day cruise, I'm fairly sure there will be no cruises longer than 7 days til probably. mid-year 2021. We've only paid the deposit so far and I'm budgeting for paying this off, but would prefer not to tie funds up on a cruise that most likely won't go til 2022. Does anyone have any insight as to when cruising will re
  3. Awesome! Thank you so much - I think for 2021, at least, we are going to go with the cruiseline insurance we've already purchased and our Global Assist as a back up : )). We've not had a need for any medical care or anything like that as of yet, but as we grow older, it's always in the back of our minds and with COVID, that adds another layer of uncertainty.
  4. Thank you! I knew I couldn't claim an expense that was fully covered under another policy, I'm more concerned about having more evacuation coverage than what the cruiselines offer on their policies. FWIW, we also have Global Assist through our company benefits package, which might be enough on it's own that I don't need to purchase additional evac-only insurance. I'll have to take a look at what benefits we are offered.
  5. I have a question about yearly policies - if we already purchased insurance from the cruiseline for our booked cruises and then purchase an annual policy - can we collect off both? I'm specifically thinking if coverage from the cruiseline policy isn't adequate to cover evacuation or repatriation costs. And I'm hearing lots of positive things about Allianz. Has anyone else used a different annual policy and had a good experience? Thanks so much!!
  6. Personally, I think it's going to depend on the length of the cruise and where it's departing from. I don't think anything over 7 days will sail til mid-year at least, and smaller ports that support one or two ships will come online later than ports like Miami or Port Canaveral.
  7. We have a January 2021 Journeys cruise booked (been booked for about 18 months). We have decided to push that out to a 10 day Journeys cruise in December of 2021. IF cruiselines can sail the beginning of the year, they are going to be limited and shortened itineraries. I don't see anything over 7 days sailing until mid-year or so. We are also sailing out of Charleston, which I don't think will be operational for a couple of months after sailing resumes. That being said, we found an awesome 7 day cruise in a balcony cabin on HAL for mid-Februrary - we are going to book that usin
  8. I'm thinking that if any of the results would have come back positive for Corona, they would have had to quarantine the crew, thus the reason for delaying embarkation on this sailing.
  9. Let's also not forget that grandpa also tried to blame all of this on the fact that he's colorblind - he said in an interview, "he was told" that because he's color-blind, that's the reason he didn't see the window was open - which, of course, is totally disputed by the video because, well, you can't lean out of a closed window (for obvious reasons). Mom is an attorney, I think she knew exactly what would happen if this lawsuit was pursued. If she gave a fig about grandpa, she would have highly encouraged him to take the deal that PR offered of no jail time for a guilty plea. Obv
  10. Even if you can't get traditional dining and have to take YTD, you can request the same servers each night - just let them know what time you think you'll arrive and they'll usually have a table just about ready for you : ))
  11. When we were on in the Summit in June, they did. All we needed to do was park in the corner of the elevator lobby and then call guest services - within 5 minutes the scooters were gone - they also charged them for us and returned them bright and early the next morning.
  12. I did use Uplift with RCCL for our last cruise - it worked well for me. That being said, I think the only time I would use Uplift again would be on a last-minute deal that I just can't pass up. Something that needs to be paid in full at the time of booking. But, as others have said, no one is forcing anyone to use the option. Some people will find value in it, some will not. Those that don't find the value, simply don't use it : ))
  13. I don't get it either, and I'm actually pretty happy to see them switch to Pepsi, just for the Bubly : )))
  14. the Pure Leaf, Propel, Gatorade and Starbucks will not be part of Bubbles, but will be a part of the alcohol package.
  15. I know NCL has a contract with Pepsi as well. Does anyone who's sailed NCL know how they handle that? Can you ONLY get Pepsi products or do they have a supply of Coke for the bar?
