  1. Interesting question. Wonder why it hasn't come up on these boards yet.
  2. Yep...as long as they can use the cash from final payments coming in to help pay refund money going out, why change.
  3. Hope you get you're refund soon.
  4. Just FYI, common flu is usually a lot less than half the current 1.8% COVID rate. Unless I'm reading it wrong, it looks like in 2018-19 flu season, the common flu death rate was about .1% Obviously varies a bit year to year depending on severity. https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/2018-2019.html "CDC estimates that the burden of illness during the 2018–2019 season included an estimated 35.5 million people getting sick with influenza, 16.5 million people going to a health care provider for their illness, 490,600 hospitalizations, and 34,200 deaths from influenza (Table 1). "
  5. I normally detest dark beer, including Guinness. Guinness out of the tap in a bar (well, multiple bars actually) in Ireland is far and away the best beer I've ever had.
  6. Have fun! Please report back with how your day went.
  7. Whether they dress up in a tux, suit and tie, polo and slacks, t-shirt and jeans, or t-shirt and shorts, they will not stick out and will not be the only ones wearing whatever they choose to wear. Whatever it ends up being, enjoy your cruise!
  8. No reservations. Just got off the ship (waited for the mad rush off the ship right at first call to end, so maybe an hour after docking) and went past the lines at the taxi stand because we didn't want to sit in a van waiting for it to fill up, even if it saved a few $$$. One of the guys selling tours just past the vans said he'd find us a car taxi after we told him we just wanted a ride straight to Grand Case. Five minutes later we were in a car. I think if you walk out of the port area you're more likely to find a taxi but someone else may chime in on the best place to actually catch one...we may have just gotten lucky (when his first guy didn't want to take us, we just started walking down the street towards town....he chased us down about 100 yards later saying he found one). I'd head out to Grand Case earlier rather than later. Around lunch time it's a popular place for tours to stop (we had a couple tour boats and a couple vans worth of people stop by around then) so it may be tougher to get good loungers at that time. But I don't recall it ever being really full.
  9. If I recall, we gave the driver $30 for the trip there and $40 for the trip back. He didn’t quote us that much (think it was $25) but I tipped extra because I wanted to make sure he would come back at a pre-arranged time to take us back to the ship and when he showed at the exact time I tipped him even more on the way back. $20 for two loungers and an umbrella. We love Rainbow, it’s our go-to in SXM.
  10. We were there during the week of January 5th. Took a morning taxi from the cruise pier up to Grand Case and spent a good part of the day at the Rainbow Cafe. Taxi back to the ship in the afternoon. No problems at all and no sign of problems for us either.
  11. Is a suggestion that isn't enforced really a rule? No.
  12. Our large suitcase, open with a mid-sized suitcase opened and laid inside it, fit easily under our bed on Oasis last week.
  13. Cruises sail at capacity week after week. Call it a "fake sale", "marketing gimmick", "joke", or whatever you want to call it....it works.
