  1. Thanks for your comments. We booked our first Princess cruise for November out of Los Angeles. Keeping our fingers crossed that all works out and we get to go. We have had five cruises canceled since last March. We love Celebrity but they continue to raise their prices and we no longer feel that the product matches the price.
  2. We were booked on the Pursuit for a cruise in September out of Civitavecchia. We canceled about a month ago as we felt things would still not be back to what is considered normal. Even somewhat normal. That was a lot of money to invest with so much doubt. Now I’m glad we made this decision. I have had enough experience dealing with investment companies like the one that purchased Azamara and in most cases it’s never good. They’re in it to make a positive return on their investment and will do whatever it takes to reach that goal. As I stated on the X board, this move does not sur
  3. Not surprised in the least. Azamara never really fit into the group. There was never new builds in the approx. ten years under RCG. Now that they own Silverseas, it makes even more sense.
  4. This describes my experience on NCL last year. The ship had far too many people but the Haven made all the difference. I think we’re ready to try MSC again for May of next year. We had two cruises canceled this year.

  8. Ernie, great photos as well. Since I lived my first thirty-five years in Florida I miss seeing things like this. Of course there are other things that I don’t. 😉😉😉🙂 Hope all is well.

  12. Noticed that she also shows Freeport as the next port. If they were transferring crew members over to the CP then it looks as though she will be headed across the pond. This was my fourth Carnival ship after the Fantasy, Sensation and Celebration which still remains my favorite Carnival ship.
  13. I sometimes chuckle when I read comments calling a ten year old ship “old”. The Caribe was 39 years old when we cruised on this ship. Another of my favorites was the Seabreeze from Dolphin Cruise Line. This ship was 36 years old when we cruised in 1993. Seven nights to the eastern Caribbean. A true beauty.
  14. Hopefully Discover can electronically transfer the funds to your bank. I had the same situation after Chase closed out my dispute. I asked for the funds to be sent to my bank. The funds arrived within three business days.
