  1. From what I have read, the CDC thinks the other types of travel are safer because they are shorter trips. The travelers may pass the virus among themselves, but they have different destinations, so the risk/results are spread out and wouldn't devolve on one location/port. Poor excuse in my opinion, but that's what I see. EM
  2. I see white cliffs. Could this be Dover?
  3. Plenty of pics available on cruisedeckplans.com. A modest membership fee gets you access and can be recouped by submitting your own pics. EM
  4. I don't think test cruises will happen. The requirement came down before vaccines were rolled out, and the conclusion that being vaccinated makes a guest very unlikely to become seriously ill would make all the elaborate plans for evacuating sick cases and setting up plans with local hospitals, etc. moot. Simply requiring vaccination of everyone makes it realistic. The cruise lines do not need to make it mandatory, but if the ports of call do, the cruise line can refuse boarding, so it becomes a rule - just not theirs. EM
  5. I don’t think we will be pulling the average down, but rather pulling it apart. We are both above the age range, have only one home. It might be considered a vacation home, as since we are both retired, we are on permanent vacation. EM
  6. My experience in booking for one and adding a second later was that I had already paid the single supplement, so all that it cost was the port fees and taxes for the second person. $28 was pretty cheap for a 16 night cruise...but my sister still hasn’t paid up... EM
  7. I had it for a time. But to me, it was only worth it if the only line I sailed with was Carnival. But we sail a number of different lines, and although I could redeem the points on other lines of the Carnival family, they were only worth 3/4 of what I got when I used them on Carnival. So I let it lapse. EM
  8. And here I thought this thread was going to be about babies being conceived aboard a Carnival cruise... My first Carnival was in 1999, on board Fantasy for 4 days. I had been on Royal Princess (1) in Jan. to South America, and just wanted to cruise again. There was quite a difference... But it didn't deter me from sailing Carnival many more times, because I can drive to two ports. EM
  9. Suggest you check the S class cabin sticky at the top of the page. EM
  10. Best answers will be on the Royal Caribbean forum here. More traffic there. EM
  11. Unless you are under the exercise room of the gym - treadmills - there shouldn't be any noise. EM
  12. Just go to your App Store and type Marine Traffic into the search. The one with the blue ship is it. EM
  13. I believe we had Manaus a few pages back... and Santarem, too. EM
  14. You will get a quicker answer if you ask this on the board here for Royal Caribbean... A lot more people visit that board. EM
