  1. We love cruising but I have asthma. Once I can get a vaccine for this, I'll cruise like I always did. But not before. So option 3....but then option 2.
  2. Honestly, as someone with mild asthma, my worry extends beyond the cruise. I'll gladly wait 6 months or a year if needed as long as I 100% know I will still be here to take it... 😐
  3. This may be a better place for this. We've been wrestling with what to do out for our late June RCL cruise out of Rome. It's looking increasingly likely this isnt going to happen so last week shelled out a good chunk for a Nationwide cancel for any reason policy (i was actually a bit surprised I could still find out on a cruise out of Italy). Not so much for the cruise at this point, thanks to the new RCL, but for the $5K in airfare that is non refundable. I like that if, say, I decide its too risky for me, or my MIL does, the rest could in theory still go and I could get reimbursed (this isnt likely to happen of course). That policy change actually made it easier for me to decide to actually MAKE the final payment, so thats good... I would love for this to abate in Italy and use to be able to go, but considering I am mild asthma (not serious but at least elevates my risk slightly i presume) and my MIL is 67 (another slightly higher risk factor), wanted to ensure that if nothing else, I have the ability to apply that ~$4K i get back to the future rescheduled cruise whenever that may be.
  4. I just sent this quote to someone. He was referring to those people. He said "“When I say protect, I mean right now. Not wait until things get worse. Say no large crowds, no long trips. And above all, don't get on a cruise ship.”

  6. I'm stunned that my June 21 cruise prices havent fallen. I am wondering if they will fall after final payment date for existing reservations
  7. I need to try to get out that day. It looks like the latest I can get out is 3:45pm that day. Is that doable do you think? I feel like usually we are off the ship in the 8-9am range, through luggage pickup and everything in another 1-2 hours? 1 hour or so to the airport...feel like we are still going to have at least 3 hours to play with? Does this make sense?
  8. By private do you mean a third party or specially a third party that we book by ourselves?
  9. We haven’t selected yet. Trying to think around her needs. Rome, Nice, Florence, etc. ive been on a similar itinerary before and my recollection was that most tourist sites had a restroom of some kind but it’s been 17 years so figured I’d ask figured As much re the bus. Was hopeful but dubious
  10. Or do the coach buses have them? Specifically referring to an upcoming cruise in the Mediterranean. A family member has a medical condition and needs access to a restroom fairly regularly (every couple hours max). Do the coach buses have bathrooms? Do the attractions?
  11. Ha...we looked at all the permutations and 3:2 ultimately was the winner. We were toying with trying our first ever NCL cruise because their single studio pricing is actually far more in line with reason, but ultimately decided to stick with what we know we like
  12. 5 including the MIL. So right now I have booked a room for 3 and a room for 2...Numbers wise it just made more sense than 4 and 1. I know the room for 3 has a 4th pullman bed but wondering if they will be ok pulling it down
  13. Booking for a family of 5 and a mother in law is a logistical challenge. Rooms are only a couple rooms apart and likely will have the same room attendant. If I ask him nicely, and tip him well, will he be ok with making up 4 beds in one room instead of 3 and one less in another? We will be tipping all the same per person of course. Or is this something that is a no-no?
