  1. Yes, I saw that last week. When I said it technically wasn't cancelled yet, I mean that Princess still shows our cruise as upcoming when I sign in to our cruise personalizer and we have not received a notification from them yet. I'm sure it will come after their announcement tomorrow.
  2. I foresee changes, but not nearly as drastic as most of you. We do have to reclaim our "new normal" lives soon. You can't force people to get a flu vaccine. And, yes, I did get a flu vaccine last fall, after never having a flu vaccine in my life. I see heightened awareness of handwashing and face touching, etc., but I don't think people will need health certificates to cruise. They would really be useless, as someone could get infected on the way to the ship or in the days between their doctor visit and the cruise. It's not realistic. I want (and do) take health precautions, but I don't want to live my life wrapped in bubble wrap to keep germs off of me. I wore a mask to the store last week and I felt horribly claustrophobic and anxious, and I'm not an anxious person at all. I just think things will somewhat revert back as more and more people develop immunity to it.
  3. Wow. Maybe I'm too optimistic, but I am sure hoping that things will be somewhat back to normal schedules later this year. We were supposed to do The Grand May 30 (which technically hasn't been cancelled yet) to Alaska, but were actually thinking of booking a Caribbean over Thanksgiving, after we get more info about credits etc from our May cruise.
  4. No end date announced. Just "until further notice"
  5. We are booked on The Grand for May 30th. I check the website every day, expecting to see that it is cancelled. The company I work for put out a policy that if an employee leaves the country they will have to quarantine for 14 days before returning to work. Also, if an employee goes on a cruise they will need a doctor's report before returning to work.
  6. We love the Grand, too. We are booked on a May 30 Alaska Cruise. Not going to happen, but haven't received any notice from Princess. It still shows in our personalizer, too.
  7. Absolutely!! We are booked for the May 30th Anchorage to Vancouver, which we planned on going to. Now, with the port of Vancouver closed until July, not sure what is going to happen, but we will rebook!
  8. We have the same cruise scheduled for May 30. Haven't heard anything from Princess yet. It may take a few days.
  9. Yes, I knew that. We are flying into Anchorage and the Princess site itinerary says Anchorage with Whittier in parentheses.
  10. We are booked to cruise from Anchorage to Vancouver on May 30th on The Grand. Hmmmm. Thankfully, for the first time ever, we booked airfare through EZ-Air!
  11. The problem was Princess didn't HAVE one of the tests, even if they had wanted to test the crew member before they were ordered to. If they had a test right when ordered to do so, they could have cruised, but left late. They had to wait for the CDC to get a test to them to preform it.
  12. After 4 of us went on a snorkeling excursion in Hawaii, two other members of our party (who did something else) told us about a man local to our area who had went missing the year before while snorkeling in the EXACT area we went. He was with his son and his body was never found. They were assuming a shark got him. We were like "something you could have told us BEFORE we went", but they didn't remember until we were talking about it and they went back and checked the info.
  13. My additional OBC showed up the day after the email went out.
  14. We showed up and LOVED it, LOL Jaws freaked me out a little more than Titanic. We were floating around the Caribbean, so not worried about an iceburg. However, sharks are always a possibility. But I remember laughing about it then.
