  1. We have eaten dinner there several times on different ships. It was delicous.Desserts are really good. Well worth $15 pp.
  2. I have had my first covid shot. Now I am waiting for the second one. I was thinking that by June, everyone who wanted a vaccination would have had one. It was well organized. Maybe they will step up production.
  3. Am I over hopefull? People on this site stay caught up on the crusing news. I would love to hear some opinions.
  4. Carnival Cruises has announced they will implement the following Covid-19 prevention protocols aboard all ships when their cruising reopens in November, 2020 In November, Carnival Cruises is scheduled to ADD departure sailings from: Miami Port Canaveral Orlando They have a list of things that will happen. Protective wise. May be true. May not happen. Interesting article,
  5. I grew up in Muscle Shoals. We played a High School in Huntsville (football) my Senior year. I remember when Huntsville was not a big city! North West Alabama is beautiful and the people are so nice. I don't miss the winters. I still have family in MSC. I called Carnival today, and they said it had not been cancelled. I think it is sailing, if it does. with fewer passengers. If we have to use masks, I am fine with that. If they serve all of the food, I like that. If they give a covid test when you board, I like that. If they take our temperature, that is fine. Currently my social life
  6. I was burned very badly when I was a child. Plus I have a very rare blood type. The local radio stations put out a call for people with my blood type to please donate. My Mother told me people lined up to get tested and donate blood. I was in the hopital for six months, and then spent years having plastic surgery. Every day of my life has been spent thanking those volunteers.. And when I had a small pox shot, I was already immune. I had received it from a donor. It does greive me that in time people have been forced to do it. But my donors volunteered. They saved my life. I like to think t
  7. I had a lot of Carnival Gifr Cards from my cancelled cruise for my husband and me, and my daughter's family. It took a long time to get a refund but I did. I do not want Carnival to go belly up. So I figure that if they cancel all cruises until 2021, I would get a refund. If they tested everyone getting on the ship, and just floated around for a week or so, I would be happy. I like ending the buffet too. Holland America, I think, always serves the food when you go thgough the line. ( think they do so). They have, or are, moving the Breeze to Cape Canerval. We are booked on the Dec. 5.2020
  8. Thank You. Volunteers like you always amaze me. Many of our worst diseases have been cured by brave people stepping up. God Bless You.
  9. The Magic will be sailing out of Port Canaveral on Nov. 8, 2021.
  10. I am leaving a fun Trivia round, heading to the casino to donate my $40 bucks, then when I have lost it, heading to the coffee shop for a skim milk latte and a big chocolate cookie. I wish!
  11. If you live in Northeast Florida, and read the Florida Times Union, there is a LOT of testing going on. And More is coming. The Death rate in Duval for the entire pandemic is 70 people. All over 70. Every death is a loss, but all of those who died were very old. ( I am too) Most were in nursing homes. Very expensive nursing homes so it was not a lack of care. The Deerwood area in JAX and one in Orange Park. I do not know anyone who has had it. I do not know of anyone who knows of who has had it. I have had three repair folks in my home during the Pandemic. I asked them if they had been
  12. I have received my e-mail. It stated that cabins would be assigned starting last Friday, and we would be notified of our cabin number. It also said that we all have $200 On board credit.
  13. We were booked on the Radiance for Dec.2020. 1 Made the reservation almost 2 years ago. I am worried about catching the virus, but I do take hydroxychloroquine ( for Rheumatoid Arthritis) and have for 20 years. It lessons the damage inflammation RH does to heart, lungs, etc. Makes sense it would help lesson any inflammation. But my husband does not. I am praying we have a vaccine before that. I think about when it will be normal again, but will we be the way we were then? DO you have hand sanitizer in your car, your glove compartment, your China cabinet?) Do you have enough masks
  14. It was a HUGE hassle to get my refund. I had been told that $400+ ( cruise credit) would be added to a reservation I booked for March 2021. That was some weeks ago.. So that means I have to call Carnival again. and just the thought makes me grit my teeth. I love to cruise, I have always loved Carnival. so from now on,..after I use the gift cards I received for the refund, it will be in cash. That might just be me. But for me, it is not worth the hassle.
  15. Thank for the photos. I did not realize that they were that obstructed. I may see if we can change cabins.
