  1. I guess I just look at it differently. I don't look at the "new cases" info to determine the cruise dates. A cruise ship is a finite space. The closest comparison for safety right now is Disney World. All the cruise lines have to prove is that people can be safe in a controlled environment. If the Disney bubble shows that it is possible to control the environmental issues enough to provide a reasonably safe space, all the cruise lines have to do is follow their example. The next few weeks will determine how much we can protect those in a controlled environ
  2. I would. We don't even get off the ship at Half Moon Cay anymore. Key West is one of my favorite stops.
  3. My favorite breakfast. Probably 2/3 of my mornings will be there. Plus, a few days for lunch. Favorite place to eat on the whole ship.
  4. It's just that the booking flow has you request accessible, then confirm that you qualify for accessible then offers you the choice to pick a room or let them pick. We are starting to "know " the accessible rooms by ship type. Have to stay in the same rooms every time, for the most part. Thought choosing this option might get us upgrades every now and then. Since switching to accessible rooms the upgrade fairy has pretty much disappeared.
  5. Has anyone chosen to have Carnival choose your room when fully accessible room was needed? Sometimes it is the only option that comes up. But, when it gets to the final booking page there is no reference to needing an accessible room. Someone had told us once that you could not choose that option for accessible, but they keep offering it. Just hoping for some help.
  6. We are on the phone with Carnival right now booking mid October.
  7. I have looked all though the AARP site and have never found these cards. Where are they? Nevermind: Found it.
  8. Disney owns cruise ships and Disney will let the government of Florida know when they will be starting back up.
  9. We have cruises booked for Sep, Nov, Jan, Apr and next Nov. Lots of future cruises are filling up fast. To each their own.
  10. And I would go on the cruise without hesitation. I am rarely within 6 feet of most people on a cruise. Like to look for quiet spots or use my balcony. Pizza delivery and room service are fine with me. Only use the MDR a couple of times per cruise as it is. Have never seen a show in the showroom, so that doesn't matter to me. And don't drink alcohol. Bring my own cokes. To each their own. I will sacrifice a few things to go cruising again. We have cruises booked in Sep, Nov, Jan, April and next Nov.
  11. Or, like they stated yesterday, they are pulling the bookings to control the inventory because they will be starting at less-than-full capacities.
  12. I truly think people will keep cruising. This is just based on me and my co-workers and friends. Plus, when I say co-workers you should understand that my office books people on Disney cruises. The calls are still coming in and my co-workers are all still talking about the cruises we have coming up. Unfortunately, "Floating petri dish", I am afraid that might linger for a while. Comparing it to John McCain's "Human cockfighting" reference about Mixed Martial Arts matches. It did stick even after rules were changed, government sanctioning, etc. They survived but it took a long time
  13. This. We had a blast. The service was so great that we spent the last day walking around finding Managers and letting them know how impressed we were with everybody. After we got home we completed the survey and wrote a letter. Carnival is always great but the Liberty just stepped it up a notch and it was great.
  14. Because I like cruising. I have a pattern that I book and pay off my cruises and I am sticking to that pattern because it works for me. As far as to why I am not afraid of the company going under and losing my money: 1) Industry leader. Smaller cruise lines might have trouble. "Carnival" is almost synonymous with cruising. 2) Took on the funds needed to bridge the gap until cruises start again. 3) Money is still coming in daily for future cruises. The cruises have stopped but the cash flow has not. 4) People want to cruise. For each person that will not
  15. Pizza delivery and no shows. No problem.
  16. Agreed. People still want to cruise and money is still coming in for future cruises. Carnival won't declare bankruptcy. It would be ridiculous. They would declare> another company could buy all their ships> and make all the same money Carnival would have made. Doesn't make any sense. The ships will still be full next year. Maybe at slightly lower prices. All is well.
  17. Have cruises booked for Sep, Nov, Jan, Apr, Nov and we are working on Jan 2022 as we speak. Rather hope for the best and have fun to look forward to. We have had to reschedule one cruise so far. Hopefully that will be it.
  18. I went 11 years between my first and second cruise and now take 3 cruises a year. My first trip was on the Jubilee out of Puerto Rico. Amazing itinerary with St Thomas, Antigua, St Lucia, Dominica and more. Anyone else cruise on the Jubilee? I heard it has been scrapped.
  19. Grilled ham and cheese. Wife gets the tomato and mozzarella.
  20. Not being enforced at all. I've heard of accounts from both Orlando International and SFO and there was an article in the paper saying passengers weren't even told about, much less enforced.
  21. This is exactly why I don't know. According to an article from National MS Society some of the drugs suppress the immune system overall. But her particular drug just targets specific areas. And, according to the article, people on these drugs should keep taking them and should follow normal precautions. I'm sure Carnival won't have this type of knowledge.
  22. Yeah, having problems calling right now. The Disney World cast members that work in the parks are getting two weeks pay to sit at home. Those of us at the reservation centers are working 12 hour shifts to try and handle all the cancellations.
  23. My wife has Multiple Sclerosis. Since Carnival hasn't put out an official list I guess I'm asking if anyone has contacted them to find out. Thanks
