  1. Was it "bubble excursions" only, or were you free to roam the ports?
  2. Easier and logical perhaps. But if it was "tag the unvaccinated", what is to prevent them from simply cutting them off? 🤪
  3. Well.... they'll have to make it even easier for the 'checkers' 🤪 There's a recent video on youtube where a traveler took the test at home in Mountain time within the 72 hours. Then, when checking in for the international leg in Boston, they were stopped because of the 72 hours rule. They tried to explain that the test was indeed within 72 hours, and the difference is only due to timezone, MDT vs EDT. It fell on deaf ears. Long story short, they had to retake the test. At least they got on their flight. Moral of the sad story- account for timezone changes when traveling East. Silly, yes, but it is what it is.
  4. I read somewhere that many travel policies are excluding coronavirus events because now they are known and forseeable. Is there a special upgraded travel insurance they need to get that provides evac coverage for coronavirus?
  5. Six additional weeks for mailing times? What are they using, the Pony Express? Actually, it wouldn't take six weeks by pony... 😆
  6. I've been to Venice a couple of times, and don't want to take sides. But one of the side effects of the pandemic is that the anti-tourists got what they asked for. Clear water, but no money, no jobs, closed restaurants. No one wanting to take gondolas. More people moving out due to no jobs, no income. Some of the extreme tourist hating local probably really like it like this. But it can't get good for the future of Venice. If they can manage tourism better, like perhaps limit the number of ships calling there, both sides can have their cake and eat it too. You know, a compromise, that thing that is all too rare nowadays.
  7. Sorry for replying to a two year old post- but does Consumer Cellular charge extra for the international roaming? Also, is it an option with any of their plans, such as their cheapest monthly plan?
  8. Even in better times, that would have been hard to track. But today, when cruises get canceled left and right, it must be an amazing feat of organization to keep it all straight. For the record, I have three cruises planned now. And the one for Feb 2022 got canceled earlier today. Allegedly for health concerns, but eight months out seems like a stretch to blame the virus.
  9. Just be mindful of a recent change at Amex- the credit is limited to one per person. So if you have account with two people on it, and they are both offered the deal, there should be no problem getting it twice. In the good old days, it was a much looser limit of one credit per card. You can imagine the possibilities. A married couple could get the offer twice per account. A family could get the offer multiple times per account. In those days, I would prepay everything so as to be able to apply more credits 😃 😃 😃
  10. So by "reinstating' the FCC, they just reactivate it with the original expiration? Wow, what bag of coal. Just to make sure, is the expiration Book By or Sail By?
  11. The injunction certainly weakens one side dramatically. In my non-legal minded world, it would be telegraphing to one party the court's train of thought. So it's like a "settle the case" or be prepared for a more thorough spanking.
  12. "Due to ongoing uncertainty with the re-opening of international borders, as well as subsequent changes to their global return to service, Royal Caribbean has made a few adjustments to their upcoming itinerary offerings. Unfortunately, as a result of these changes, Royal Caribbean has cancelled additional sailings onboard Ovation of the Seas, Quantum of the Seas, Serenade of the Seas and Voyager of the Seas, including your upcoming cruise vacation. Royal Caribbean is offering the following options for impacted sailings: ?100% Refund ?125% Future Cruise Credit"
  13. If that is what they are doing, it would be better to gray out the ones that conflict. Who knows, you might change your mind and switch to an excursion that costs more and makes NCL more money! 😀
  14. 2G speeds works perfectly for Google Maps, email, google drive, finance app, Uber, etc. About the only thing I haven't tried is streaming video, which I am not inclined to do when on vacation 😀 Everyone is different. If you need 4G, LTE or faster, then free 2G international data may not work for you.
