  1. the CDC already said that they wanted to extend the no-sail order until next year BUT our government said NOPE. Sounds to me like this one is a HARD STOP. I think our chances are better now than they have been previously for a November startup out of Canaveral and Miami. Carnival voluntarily pushed the date to the end of October, even when the CDC had the no-sail date set for the end of September - so Carnival was ALREADY planning to not start up again until November
  2. OR.... the folks she knows do not know EVERYONE in the industry. I used to work for Walt Disney World and anytime anyone heard that I worked there, they asked me if I knew "so and so" who works in Epcot or at Magic Kingdom or works in the warehouse at the Polynesian. there are thousands of employees (or as Disney calls them "Cast Members") and you cannot possible know all of them. Just because this one person hasn't heard anything doesn't mean that NOBODY has. If they are starting off with just two ports, there's a large percentage of crew that aren't going to
  3. perhaps when you call, just say "I have cancelled my cruise and I'm calling for the OBC that the email said I was eligible for" don't mention WHEN you cancelled it and if it does come up - mention that the email didn't say that you had to have cancelled it recently...
  4. I've been creating "cruising" related decals to hide when we return to sailing! I'll have quite a collection by the time I get back on a ship! :-) just found this really cute ANCHOR idea that I'm now trying to recreate... I've got plenty of time to perfect my crafting!
  5. my ads are all for cruises... LOL I recently got this computer (so that I could work remotely due to this pandemic) and the only places I go on here are Cruise Critic and the Carnival website... all my ads are GREAT! 🙂
  6. so very true!! I wish I was less afraid to be happy!! I think I will bring my twinkle lights on our next cruise and see if I can gather the nerve to wear them in my hair! I love this. (or maybe find a way to incorporate them throughout my skirt (it's a lacy outer later with a satin inner layer... I think it'd work!)
  7. LOL thanks! I've got some more for you... ... watching the teenage girls talking NON-STOP over each other and not even noticing that nobody is listening ...the little ones trying to get mommy or daddies attention to "watch me!" while they do something like raise a foot off the ground or spin in a circle while holding one arm up ... seeing the pre-teens notice each other and try to get each others attention while trying not to make it obvious that they are trying to get the others attention (I've got a teenaged daughter and I have seen this a LOT
  8. oh yes!! People watching is one of my favorites! Checking out the different outfits on people, (some wear things well, while others not so much... I'm always in the "doesn't wear things well" category, so I am comforted by others in the same boat!) looking at the good looking and the not so good looking peeps... hearing snippits of conversations as folks walk past us and then trying to piece together how we think the "rest of the story" went... watching the husbands who are obviously brow-beaten by their wives... trying to fi
  9. you SHOULD care if it affects their "tax situation" - because that "situation" could very well greatly affect the cost of your cruise and what services are included in said cruise. you sound like you're very passionate about this topic, maybe you should take this and run with it and try to make a change for the crew... find a solution that will positively benefit everyone. (well... except the cheapo's that want to remove their tips - but THOSE are the people I don't care how it affects)
  10. should we also point out that many of these employees are also receiving free room & board, and likely have no grocery bills to speak of either as most meals are covered too. (favorite snacks and incidentals is a minor expense) and I believe someone else said that by American standards their wages are not so great but by the standards of where they come from, it is above average pay for them. Also, the "tipping" positions are a coveted position because they have the potential to make so much more $$ than say, the guy working in the galley cleaning the pots and pans.
  11. there are also people that die from the flu that DID get their flu shots... and that certainly wasn't their decision! as I said in an earlier post, I have a friend who has gotten the flu shot every year and she ended up getting the flu multiple times in a relatively short period of time, one of those times required hospitalization because it was so severe. She was just lucky enough to live in an area with a flu strain that wasn't protected by that years shot... she no longer gets the flu shot every year because she doesn't believe in their effectiveness.
  12. same! and "passport vs birth cert" or "can my mature 8 year old kid go to serenity with me?" or "how do I sneak on beer?" LOL
  13. I've done that too! LOL but this year, I want to participate!
  14. well, considering I didn't include anything "factual" in my post - only my own personal opinions... and I stated that a vaccine would have to be more effective than the current flu vaccine. If it's 100% effective, I'll get it without question once it's PROVEN to be so. (it wasn't necessarily a "comparison" just an example of what I don't consider to be effective enough for me - FOR ME, not you or anyone else reading this post. For me.) And this next comment is not directed at you, but I'm not an "anti-vaxxer" just because I don't get the flu shot... I've gotten all
  15. I also have not had the flu in quite a few years - and I have NEVER gotten the flu shot. So it seems like it's LUCK for both of us. I also wash my hands before I eat - I don't touch things that I don't need to - if I'm in a line where the person in front of me is coughing / sneezing, I step back and keep my distance. If the coughing/sneezer is behind me, I let them go in front of me and then I step back from them! I'd love to see some statistics on this, actually. A comparison of how many have gotten the flu when they've gotten the flu shot vs the number of folks
