  1. This was my November 15 Allure. We had an L1 but did the lift and shift. Red is available.
  2. Judging by the lack of activity in my former roll call, I'd say they probably won't have an issue paring down.
  3. We lifted and shifted both our November and January cruises. Before booking anything else I need to see a trend line. As for the CDC and White House, I'm of the belief that it's time for people to be allowed to exercise personal responsibility. The cruise lines will do what they need to do. If you're good with that then go for it. I'm not ready yet.
  4. Half kidding because we could do 7 days without getting off the ship too.
  5. Royal would love to see you do only private islands too. LOL! Kidding...well only half kidding.💲💲💲
  6. The last time we were in there on Freedom which was a few years ago there were only a couple of cigarette smokers and the air wasn't bad at all. We did a Princess many moons ago and there cigar lounge was brutal. My eyes were watering.
  7. My take is nothing is permanent but recommended to continue but I've been wrong before. Recommendations start on page 9. "The following chart summarizes our recommendations and indicates which of them can be scaled down, modified, or discontinued over time (M) and which should continue to be implemented to address SARS-CoV-2 and other infectious diseases (K)." https://www.royalcaribbeangroup.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Healthy-Sail-Panel_Full-Recommendations_9.21.20_FINAL.pdf
  8. Got to meet some interesting people in the Connoisseur Club. Me the retired cop and my son the detective got a good laugh after meeting these gems in the club. https://www.11alive.com/article/travel/four-women-charged-with-using-cruise-ship-to-smuggle-cocaine/85-255775653
  9. We're with you. March cruise cancelled, couldn't see the grand kids for 3 months, wife got laid-off, broke her foot, I'm a year from potential retirement and the market is tanking, wife's work called asking her back but she can't with a broken foot (there goes unemployment), on top of all that cops are being targeted and we're an LEO family. 2020 can't be over fast enough.
  10. We sail in suites on both Royal and Celebrity and have found the suite experience on Celebrity a better value with drinks, tips, OBC, and internet included. We enjoy the Retreat Lounge and Retreat Sun Deck. We probably don't utilize the butler to his full capacity. The poolside grills, outdoor buffet seating, and outdoor Sunset Bar are a plus. Luminae blows away Coastal Kitchen in my mind. Of course there are some sacrifices. Even though there are plenty of bars, I do miss the pub and the shows aren't as spectacular. No rock climbing, flow riding, zip lining, or slides. It's more of a relaxing cruise. When we take the grandkids it will be on Royal.
  11. My 86 year old Dad has been receiving IVIG infusions every 28 days for over 30 years. He's done remarkably well but his hematologist says no live virus vaccines. If one is suffering immunodeficiency disease then the best advice is to follow doctors orders.
  12. You may get an effective vaccine for 300 million people but that doesn't mean they'll 300 million people will take advantage.
  13. If herd immunity hasn't started in the US after the week we've had I'm not sure it exists.
  14. Being out in the middle of the ocean where no one bothers me.
