  1. Aww. Mine's name is Charlie. I get him in my lap every morning while I'm working (from home), and our other cat poking me in the face every night in bed. That's if the dog decides to even let me into my side of the bed. 🙂
  2. Ah, that makes sense then. I would expect the same here - the airlines have taken a similar stance on masks. Love your avatar btw - we have a longhair kitty that looks just like that.
  3. Only denied boarding? From the thread title I thought maybe he got keelhauled or walked the plank. 🙂
  4. As mentioned, a U.S. "bubble" cruise (roundtrip with only U.S. ports) wouldn't be legal under the PVSA. A roundtrip out of Canada would be but I'm not sure the Canadian government would allow it to have ports of call in Alaska since the border is closed. Based on my limited knowledge, the only legal possibility I can see would be a roundtrip out of Vancouver to Alaska but with no port stops - that is, just sail to Alaska for scenic cruising (Glacier Bay, Tracy Arm, etc.) and return. I think some people might be up for that but I'm not sure if it'd be enough.
  5. I think he/she meant not to buy the stock now, not that one shouldn't book travel.
  6. Thanks for the tip; I called yesterday and they were indeed able to see it. As best I can tell, the issue was that I was trying to view someone else's reservation while signed into my own account. We set up an account for my mother in law and the shore excursions showed up correctly when logged into it.
  7. Same here, all shore excursions for my Glacier Discovery Northbound are 20% off. Maybe I shouldn't have bothered, but I canceled all my booked excursions to take advantage of the sale, and there seems to be a glitch - I booked two cabins together (one for myself and my wife and one for her mother) but they were assigned different booking numbers. I booked all the shore excursions together. When I went to cancel, on my name and my wife's were listed, so I canceled those two, and then when I checked the second booking, her shore excursions have disappeared. Does this mean all 3 were canceled but only two were refunded? I don't want to rebook until I get the refunds and know for sure.
  8. Same, I don't think I'd stand for that either. Sometimes I just want to walk around on my own.
  9. Some of it was amusing, but it seems the crux of this author's issue is that other people take up space. I find this to be the case in most of the places I visit. 🙂
  10. The cynic in me expects that, once the pandemic blows over, the ship excursions only policy will remain in place because the cruise lines will find it too lucrative to give up.
  11. What cruise lines have cancelled through the end of the year? The latest I'm seeing is end of September.
  12. I mailed my request on June 10 and got confirmation of my OBC by email last week, and I confirmed it does appear on my printed documents. This is for a November 30 departure date.
  13. I received a refund of my port taxes and fees ($245 pp x 3 = $735) today for my 5/22 Alaska Glacier Discovery Northbound cruise on Noordam, which was canceled in early April.
  14. Same here for my shore excursions - I couldn't find them on my statement at first because they were backdated over 2 weeks.
  15. Interesting - my taxes/fees were 245 pp, so I'm expecting 735 back (3 passengers). 2 passengers would be 490 so I'm not sure why you only got 480, unless you had a different itinerary with different fees?
