  1. It used to be the standard that flight changes were made quarterly (in the "old" days). Now it is a different game. So many things can disrupt schedules. Airport/runway construction/maintenance. Aircraft fleet recalls. Weather related incidents that cause damage at airports. A big issue now is lack of employees, especially flight crews. Changes are usually done by computers, sometimes they don't make sense or work. To play it safe, take some personal responsibility and monitor your travel plans. And, wear your mask and be nice. 😷 I feel sorry for flight crews having to put up with unruly passengers.
  2. Today, on the initial Cruise Critic page, there is a short story about the arrest/payment.
  3. The 94th Aero Squadron restaurant chain started up more than 40 years ago. They were located next to airports/runways. Many have since closed, but a few remain across the USA. Google for locations and history.
  4. Hahaha, Your Title--you have to be kidding, and put up a Carnival picture? It's space, views, salt air, no a/c, and wind that we like. Just chilling, reading, napping, and having meals and HH out there. We don't do the pools, this is our personal space on the ships (which takes up a lot of our days). 😎
  5. Don't you DINKS know how to spell--it's Weekend. Ha, ha, just kidding. But you will be surprised at our older and very interesting music library. We are 68 and 74, and it includes artists from every era. To include, for your reference, Gerry and the Pacemakers to Dua Lipa. Enjoy the cruise!
  6. Negative, not for a year after this pandemic has lost steam. You are taking a gamble...
  7. Celebrity was founded by the Chandris Group (which we have sailed with) in 1988. Millennium class ships didn't arrive until 2000.
  8. Star Clippers sailing yachts. Love having less than 200 passengers and going into ports where the big ships (crowds) can't go. Have sailed them over 10 times. Next up, a 13 nighter sailing out of Malta in April/May 2022. Hopefully, by then, Covid will really be under control.
  9. Covid isn't the only reason people wear masks...
  10. It's OK if vaccinated people want to wear masks in certain situations. If they issue wristbands to vaccinated people, then that should solve any weird vibes. Check their wrists.
  11. I believe this would be a logistical nightmare 🙄
  12. Not so sure about this. We have been going through this airport since the early 90's. It was always "an island airport"--sometimes better than other times. The upstairs bar was always a hoot with all types of characters. It was remodeled and enlarged, and not too long after that, the hurricane messed it up big time. It takes a long time to recover in the islands.
  13. To all the people that suggested "grab a taxi and go somewhere for several hours" apparently haven't tried this here. We did several times after disembarking smaller ships, and almost missed our flight home a couple times. Lack of taxi's, some don't want go too far from the airport(missing good fares), traffic congestion, lack of communication, and plain old "island time" issues. The getting back to the airport part was much harder (and stressful) than leaving the airport. Many drivers would not return to pick you up at a set time. Just a heads up...
  14. I am sorry for all the negative issues this is creating, but it is to be expected for the the initial restart of cruising. And, probably for another 6 months or so. It's not just Celebrity's fault, so many factors, countries, and ports involved. Y'all that want to go on a cruise soon are kind of the "guinea pigs" so you will just have to go with the flow... ( I meant this in a nice way).
