Cool Cruiser

Cool Cruiser (2/14)

  1. Great airline. (Our favorite) BUT, remember that they do not "interline" with anyone else, so if your flight gets cancelled, you can only rebook on them. This is not an issue with their more popular routes (Where they have 2-3 or more flights daily) but if you book to somewhere they only fly once a day.....) Of course this also goes back to "Rule number 1" (NEVER fly to your departure port the day your cruise departs..... NEVER)
  2. To the original question.... No I do not think that there will be another "pause" UNLESS there is another Diamond Princess scenario. Then all bets are off and(In my opinion) over half of the cruise lines we know and love will permanently cease operations. In a nutshell, that's why I am cheering every time I hear of another line saying '"100% vaccinated ONLY.
  3. Annnnd. Based on this (very good) review, I googled the lawsuit and found this: https://shipmonk.co.uk/2021/04/04/star-clippers-awarded-substantial-damages-in-row-over-the-worlds-biggest-tall-ship-now-known-as-golden-horizon/
  4. LOL.... And something like COVID has never happened (in modern history) either!
  5. Only one.... But it went so well it somehow stuck for the next 40 years! 😊
  6. LOL.... Then you have the (little known) trick airline pilots used to use... When the crowd in the back was getting a bit too rowdy (drunk) we could raise the cabin pressure a "bit". (Normally kept at between 7000 and 8000 ft) The higher pressure would quickly conk out the drunks. Of course I am talking about the 60's and 70's so I have no IDEA what is done now! 😁
  7. Nope, but if YOU were on a Cunard 9 day out of San Juan on early October 1980.... Well never mind, (but DAMN it was a good Honeymoon!) 😁
  8. When our kids were young, we had to adhere to "school holiday" periods... and (trying to raise 2 kids) we always chose "basic" mass market lines and trips. Result? Yeah, we have seen a lot of drunk and unruly behavior. Since the kids went off to college, our travel habits have changed. No more "spring break" or holiday cruises, and more "longer" and exotic trips. (Read "no college kids and no youngsters out for a booze cruise" trips.) Result? Have not seen any questionable behavior for years and YEARS.
