  1. There are also cruises out of Baltimore... my December 13, 2020 is still bookable!
  2. The pride out of Baltimore is showing my December 13 cruise and they have not yet been listed among the cancelled ships.
  3. It’s anyone’s guess right now how the cruise lines will deal with the closed ports. Iternary changes are a cruising fact of life; sometimes it works in your favor; sometimes it doesn’t.
  4. I’m booked on a UR Comped cruise on Celebrity for May 2021; balcony with only paying taxes and port charges. First time on this line; I have status with both Carnival and Royal. It was very easy; I chose what I wanted. They called and asked some questions ( typical bankroll, game of choice, etc). Then they approve it and get back to you. Could not be easier; even have my stateroom already assigned vs, tba, which I don’t like). give them a shot. If you need a specific referral I can direct you to the person I used ( I get nothing for this referral).
  5. I have been to Atlantic City twice this summer and casinos were open and running. Some had a thermal imaging thing when you walked in ( I think hard rock); others had hand sanitizer stations and masks are mandatory. Every other machine turned off; seats also removed by those machines or taped off.
  6. As I am booked on a B2B on the sensation starting August 1 I should be fine!
  7. I got an up sell offer on my August 1 cruise on the sensation from OV to junior suite for $250 for a five day cruise and I took it! I paid very little for the OV and suites are always out of my price range. I am on a B2B so I will have to move for my four day after this but I figured it was worth the hassle for the experience.
  8. I love the Indian food on the splendor. As well as the BBQ on the Sunshine. Those should be standard on every ship.
  9. People are in good spirits and really enjoying all the ship has to offer. Every venue was packed tonight! The dancers could not put on their usual show so instead they have a stripped down version of the jazz show and let me tell you.., it was hands down the best show I ever saw on a carnival ship! The cast seemed to really enjoy just singing and not dealing with all the costumes and dancing.
  10. From what I have heard, Bermuda was without power. The trip has been very rocky with rough waters. 18 foot swells according to the captain. The entertainment crew has been amazing in trying to keep it all fun! Most of the people applauded when we found out about the FCC. I asked at guest services and they told me it included taxes and port charges, even though they already refunded us the port charges.
  11. Because of Humberto the 9/16/2019 sailing out of Brooklyn went to Charleston instead. We were supposed to have at least a few hours in Bermuda. Just got an announcement from the captain that they can’t go to Bermuda but are giving us all 100% future cruise credit with two years to use it! So we wound up with 5/6 sea days which is actually fine by me. And my next cruise will be free. Can’t beat that and kudos to Carnival for fixing an otherwise not so great for your vacation situation.
  12. I am sailing with someone who does not have a passport and is using his drivers license and birth certificate, which is fine for Bermuda. My question is if it gets diverted to Canada , what happens to him and anyone else who does not have the right paperwork?
  13. I got it a few years ago and used it in products in the spa.
  14. https://www.cruisehive.com/carnival-sunrise-to-relocate-to-brooklyn-due-to-pier-repairs/33658 just saw this about the move to the Brooklyn Pier. Thought I would share.
  15. I am on the sept 16 cruise where they are switching but am going to get to Brooklyn early since I am platinum and like to be on the ship early. I am hoping they have the platinum lounge set up in Brooklyn since I know I might be waiting a bit to get on. NYC traffic always scares me ( I am coming from Orange County/suburbs) so I never underestimate it. All it takes is one bad accident or construction and one can literally sit for hours. I usually either get a ride or take the train down to NYC and then hop in a cab to the pier. I am thinking it will be a little bit disorganized for my sailing.
