  1. We are booked on the Mardi Gras December 5 as well. As much as I would love to sail, I keep telling myself the likelihood is slim to none. Between whether the ship is ready, cancellations in general, and our particular risk factor just doesn't look to be in the cards.
  2. We were able to lock our patio door on the Vista.
  3. If they were to do the rapid testing, I wonder where they would stage it? If there were positives, inside the terminal would just expose others?
  4. Going to be lots of disappointed cruisers. We are booked in December, wondering if there will be further delays that impact us as well.
  5. Thank you for sharing your friend's story. Best wishes to her. We are in the group then never travels without insurance, just a portion of vacation costs to us like parking and pet sitting. I wouldn't ever jeopardize our future finances over such a small cost and peace of mind. We've used it - and been grateful to have it. Nothing will ever convince some that it is worth it, and I hope they never need it and don't have it. Safe travels, everyone.
  6. We are just off the Breeze on Saturday. I bought premium wifi a couple of days, mostly to check on Hurricane paths and weather, and needed to communicate with family. I WAS able to use my cable tv app to watch live tv, downloaded something from Netflix as well (just trying to get my money's worth for the wifi). YMMV Our cruise was pretty much an older crowd, and I'm guessing less than usual were using wifi - not sure if that makes a difference.
  7. We just got off the Breeze from Bermuda - it was ROUGH the entire trip. I can understand them not wanting to do that again! Bermuda was battening down for Humberto when we got there, and I imagine with another headed their way they aren't ready for a boatload of passengers.
  8. Thanks for posting that! I don't do social media and hadn't seen anything on the Carnival site (which I figured was good news).
  9. I'm not sure why you would say this. Carnival won't leave if their excursions haven't returned. They've waited for us as well on a late return due to traffic issues.
  10. Helps when you consider swimsuits as rain gear😉
  11. We are on this cruise also. Departure time is 3:30 (always has been). Got out my rain gear and umbrella!
  12. I had wanted to post a reply to this thread but didn't have the right words, and your words are perfect. We've cruised most classes but feel like the Fantasy class gives us more a feeling of being on the ocean and enjoying the full experience, and that is why we cruise. We are not into floating cities or malls, don't want to make a schedule or reservations for something we may not feel like when the time arrives. We've never used a swimming pool on a ship, nor some of the other features available. We do love the comedy club, and we miss the old shows as Playlist Productions isn'
  13. Hurricane Matthew, 2016. I remember it clearly.
  14. I was in love with some Effy earrings, but just couldn't justify the price on board. Found them at Macy's half the price.
