  1. I'd combine your cruise with a land vacation and hit London and Paris plus something away from the cities. 20 years ago we took our boys on a three week London, Paris, Normandy (Bayuex Tapestry, Landing Beaches, and Mont Saint Michel) trip with some Loire valley castles and a weekend in Switzerland thrown in. They were 9, 11, and 13, and are all now independent travelers who love to see the world. I love cruising, and (fingers crossed) we're doing the Greek Isles in 2022, but I'm glad we did the trip we did with our boys.
  2. No, because we are not doing Caribbean itineraries any more except for family trips, and the airfare will price us out (we can drive to all Florida ports) when taking the kids and grandkids along. Hopefully by the time we want to do one of those, they'll be back in Florida. Fingers still crossed for Pacific and Europe in 2022!!
  3. Hubby is all done. I got my first Pfizer on Tuesday. Can't wait to be two weeks past the second dose!
  4. That's correct. We also booked the least expensive week, which was outside the L&S four week window. Also there was really good cabin selection, so there was no reason to keep our (highly doubtful) July '21 booking.
  5. Took your advice, cancelled the July cruise. Moved it to end of August 2022, and saved several hundred dollars on my aft JS!!
  6. Agree - when we started cruising with our boys, they were old enough to do their own thing on the ship, hang out in the tween/teen areas, etc. Having all the things to do on the ship, for all ages and stages made cruising the best all-around family vacation. And once our grandkids are past the toddler stage, it will be again. For now, our cruising is just the two of us, and new places to see is the attraction. We're still less than an hour from our front door to check-in at the Port of Tampa, and easy driving distance to the other Florida ports, so I'm sure there are plenty of "for the ship" c
  7. We are retired/semi-retired now, and don't need the "get away and be pampered" as much as when we were working and raising kids. We built our own backyard paradise a couple of years ago. Pool, spa, music of our choice, cheap drinks and no chair hogs. So these days we are all about the itinerary. We may do some Caribbean cruises to be with friends and family, but our currently booked cruises are all places we've never been.. Greek Isles, New Zealand, Transpacific. Of course, all this is up in the air, but we can wait.😁
  8. Sounds like we continue our game of chicken. We have a great price on a JS, so as soon as they cancel we'll try to Lift and Shift our Greek Isles cruise to '22.
  9. We're waiting for our July '21 Greek Isles on Rhapsody to get cancelled. Plan to lift and shift to '22. Wondering can/should we do that now, while stateroom availability is better...
  10. Agree. As a grandparent, I can't imagine living with knowing that my actions led to the injury or death of one of my precious grandchildren, regardless of legal consequences.
  11. When our July 21 Greek Isles cruise gets cancelled, we're going to buy a camper and hit the national parks. Since there's no vaccine on the horizon for me (hubby gets his second shot next week, but I'm not old enough) and international travel, hotels and restaurants seem like an unlikely option, this seems like a good option. We already have the tow vehicle, and travel trailers are pretty reasonable.
  12. We're booked for a Greek Isles cruise out of Venice in late July. We haven't booked air, hotels, or anything else. I don't think that it's going to happen.
