  1. My husband and I, 72 and 74 respectively got our first shots of the Pfizer vaccine last Tuesday in Brooklyn. NYC is getting the vaccine it has into arms and I for one am thankful.
  2. I could easily imagine a federal vaccine requirement and I hope we will have an effective vaccine to mandate. The anti vaxxers put the rest of us at risk.
  3. Sorry to hear this but it makes me feel better to know I made the right decision when I cancelled.
  4. This is not flu. It is much more highly transmittable and it has a much higher death rate. I have gotten both flu and norovirus on cruises even though I was careful. My husband and I are both over 70. We are booked on the Serenade next week and are thinking seriously about cancelling. I am actually more afraid of quarantine on the ship than I am of getting the virus. If I do get sick I'd much rather be home. Our lives are worth more than $3000.
  5. We are thinking about booking an aft cabin on deck 7 (B3) on the Marina. The deck plans show these cabins as having larger balconies. Is this correct? We'll book one of these if the balconies are larger. If not, we'll probably book a more mid ship cabin.
  6. On the Serenade recently I was asked if I minded having my appetizer and salad served at the same time. Yes I minded and asking for the dessert order before the rest of the meal is served- I mind that too. Dinner in the main dining room used to be an occasion, now it's not up to the standard of low end casual restaurants on land. I have one more cruise booked on the Serenade and that will probably be my last. I'm not blaming the servers: they clearly have too many tables to serve.
  7. Thanks so much for this video. It makes me feel a little better.
  8. We are on the January 10 cruise. I did not see the cabin assign until I checked in.
  9. We booked a balcony guarantee and were just assigned 7064 which the deck plan says is obstructed view. Does anyone know what the obstruction is and how bad it is? Is there any way to change the cabin assignment? I know you take your chances when you book a guarantee cabin but we seem to have come out on the losing side especially since there are very few obstructed view cabins.
  10. Wow you guys are touchy. I don’t think I’m better than anybody else. And by the way I don’t think the food on Celebrity is nearly as good as it was ten years ago. Who am I to tell others what to like? I’m just asking a question about what I might like. I’ve seen Perry’s act on many cruises and I’ve never seen him insult anyone who couldn’t take it or didn’t think it was funny. I’m not disputing that you have. If you don’t want to see Perry on the Explorer I’m sure there are many other things you could be doing. I think Perry is on the Serenade for cruise before Jan 10.
  11. This is what I mean by more than standing room only. These pictures were taken on different nights by different passengers and posted on Facebook. See all those smiling faces.
  12. Perry's shtick is making people laugh. The people he is making fun of keep coming back for more every night. He is playing to more than standing room only crowds on the Explorer of the Seas every night this summer.
  13. Yes. We have taken more than 25 cruises on Celebrity where we first saw Perry on the Connie. We followed him to Princess and now RC. He makes me laugh until my stomach hurts and there’s no better way to End the night.
  14. Thanks for your replies. I'm sure I'll have a good time on the cruise because Perry's on the ship. I won't be disappointed in the food because I'm not expecting much. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised.
