  1. I've had three cruises cancelled so far - one in April, one in August, and one in December. I have one booked in March and one in July. Are we ever going to get to cruise again? It's getting to the point that I'm just ready to give up. I won't even get into discussing mask requirements or shore excursions. But seriously, is cruising over with?
  2. I've had two cruises canceled that I had paid a certain amount of deposits and payments that I believe are supposed to be future cruise credit. (I'm not including the on-board credit that they'd offered for rebooking.) I'd like to book one of the offers I've gotten using that future cruise credit, but I can't figure out how. The website wants me to pay another deposit. Anybody know how?
  3. I'm only on page 2, but the fact of the matter is, they will not know if they will be cruising until they know if the no-sail order from the CDC will be extended past July 24(?) or not. I suspect they stopped taking further bookings as a risk mitigation for that possibility. I'm hopeful and optimistic, but we'll see what happens.
  4. Yes, to some degree I'm an extrovert. Mostly I would just start chatting with the people sitting next to me at the casino bar, and the length of the conversation varied depending on if we had mutual interests. When you hit it off with people, then discussing meeting up for lunch or dinner or to go to shore moves you away from the bar. 🙂
  5. Update on the suitcase... The original cost around $85. I bought a smaller softside replacement for $115. Carnival sent me a check for $100! That was really above and beyond expectations. The service on Carnival is so good, in my opinion.
  6. I'm enjoying coming along for the ride. Thank you for posting your live review!
  7. I agreed to the Uber driver from Friday evening picking me up at 11am Saturday. He drove me to a liquor store to pick up my champaign and then to the cruise port. Since there were thousands of motorcycles there for an event, he asked for more money.
  8. I looked it up on Target since I had to send in information to Carnival to get reimbursed. It was this one. https://www.target.com/p/skyline-28-hardside-spinner-check-in-suitcase-purple/-/A-52840961 I'm buying a carry-on size soft side to replace it. More money, but I'll make good use of it.
  9. I took an Uber from the airport to a town about halfway to the cruise port where I stayed in a bad Days Inn. That was $30. Then I took an Uber to the cruise port the next morning, which he charged me more than he should have because I paid cash. If I were doing it again, I would just stay at a hotel at the cruise port, even those those hotels were more expensive. Thanks for your kind words!
  10. It's Sally Hansen. I've liked all of their products. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00KE4ELUM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  11. In the morning it was time to leave. I was instructed to be at the Reflections dining room at 8:45 for debarkation with my airport transfer. It was a challenge getting over there though since they had a lot of the stairways closed, and I wanted to avoid the elevator madness. I made it just in time though. Debarkation was pretty orderly as far as I could tell, but when I found my bag and placed my carry on bag on top of it, it kept tipping over. It turned out that the wheels on two sides were damaged! It looked like it was thrown at some point and landed on one of the corners badly. I re
  12. After dinner we met up at the casino for a little while, and then I wanted to be sure to get to the Alchemy bar before I left. I'm ashamed to admit that I still hadn't made my way over there yet! I had one more drink left on my drink package, so I asked the bartender to make me something with raspberries but not too sweet. It was very delicious and just a little tart!
  13. So my last day was a sea day. I had my spa appointment at 8am for my manicure and at 9am for my haircut. They did a fantastic job! I'm much happier with my nails than I was after the manicure on my cruise in June. And the hair stylist was more thorough and careful in cutting away damaged hair than I've seen in many, many years. Maybe I need to go on a cruise every time I need a haircut! After that I headed down to try a spiked shake. I had the raspberry chocolate truffle shake with whipped cream. It had a chocolate liquor in it. It was very tasty! I spent most
