  1. I remember that. I think you posted lots of pix from that cruise. It looked really nice.
  2. The amplification was never a big deal to me since we have never been on an Oasis class ship. But I think you're right about the debt pay down. So sad. The frustrating thing is that we want to cruise and they want to cruise but we can't cruise. Oh to have a time machine....
  3. I'm flush with cash since they cancelled the Allure TA. It's sitting in my savings account. Sure would like to to know if they are going to just keep Allure on it's current 5 year dry dock track (2025) or send it back early due to not finishing the upgrades. Now that my Brilliance cruise was cancelled for November next year I'm booked on an Alaska cruise next June. Hopefully that one happens.
  4. From some of the sunburns I've seen on people during cruises I'm sure that would wreak havoc on the temperature checks as well.
  5. Actually, we've only had about 30 people tell me on the roll call that they have left. Before Covid we had over 425 people on the roll call. We are currently at 396. I'm sure there are more that have cancelled the cruise but didn't let us know. It will be interesting to see how many are on the TA (if and hopefully it happens).
  6. I just hope everything goes according to plan and we are able to sail on the TA out of Barcelona. Fingers crossed that borders open and no quarantine period at either end.
  7. That is my thought. They were ready to go into that dry dock when they arrived in March so everything is probably sitting there at the shipyard.

  8. We had our carpet changed while we were in port on Explorer many years ago. We were asked to put all of out stuff the was on dressers into the dressers and to put our luggage out on the balcony. When we returned in the afternoon we had new carpet and just had to bring our luggage back inside and stow under our bed and take our other stuff out of the dressers. No big deal.
  9. Are you using our website? I have lots listed there.
  10. I would invite you to our house to clean our our fridge and make it pretty like yours but that would defeat the purpose of social distancing ;o) In the meantime I will drool over yours. Thankfully we are both safely working at home, but because of that there is no time to clean the fridge.
  11. You sound EXACTLY like irzero. Did you get blocked and have reincarnated as a "new" poster? Language and tone is exactly the same.
  12. Thanks for this! I find that very helpful. Hopefully they will be able to do the full amplification once Spain has reopened.
  13. My thought is that as you mentioned, Allure already has cruises booked in the Mediterranean until the TA in November. Once Europe opens up (and it will be before the US does), RCI will be wanting to be bringing in revenue as quickly as possible. I do not see them canceling cruises in order to bring Allure back to the Caribbean before it is time. Those cruises are already sold and they have guaranteed passengers for the Mediterranean season. Those European and Mediterranean ports are going to want to start making money, too. I wouldn't make any changes at this time. Your Septe
  14. Well that's a bummer. We would love to have you up here in NE. Guess that leaves you with more $$$ for our (hopeful) Allure TA in November. Keeping my fingers crossed and thinking positively! Otherwise, just fly up here to Boston, rent a car and do a Canada/NE drive. We've been talking about it for years. You can fly into Boston, drive to Portland, ME, go to Kennebunkport, drive up the Maine coast then head up into New Brunswick, Canada and then up to Nova Scotia. I think there is a ferry that goes from Nova Scotia to Maine that you put your car on and spend the night. We've
