  1. I do not see them getting rid of Radiance class. Do that and they have lost half of their Alaska deployment as 2 Radiance class ships sail from Vancouver. They are also a favorite class for many.
  2. I was in Martinique in November on a cruise. We had a note emailed to us before the cruise stating that a passport was required to go ashore. When we got there. There was no Passport check when disembarking or reboarding. Alway good to have a passport if you are not sure if a port requires it
  3. Canada announced yesterday a extension of the cruise ship ban to Halloween. Essentially cancelling the rest of the Alaska season for 2020 for all lines
  4. Unless Royal decides not to bring quantum of the Seas to Alaska in 2021 we will see Quantum of the Seas in Vancouver as the September 27 sailing from Seattle will end in Vancouver. The Norwegian Bliss also has to go under at low tide and still looks like it barely clears the bridge.
  5. I can see older ships getting the hand washing stations installed like newer ships. The crew will serve the food so they would need to find a way to keep queues to a minimum the island setup they have would help . Coke freestyle machines would be eliminated or moved to a crew manned drink station and a new glass would be provided each time.. condiments would be those single serve packets. ( relish needs 2 or 3 packs to get enough). The frozen dessert on the pool deck may move in to the windjammer dessert station or a food venue on the pool deck if the ship has one. which would possibly mean you could get it at dinner
  6. I am booked for Alaska at the end of August. BC provincial health officier has stated travel may not be able to resume for 12 to 18 months. That is inline with the vaccine. So Alaska cruises may not happen this year. Might not happen next year ether as 18 months puts us in to 2022
  7. The reduced Capacity means who is currently booked will still go on the cruise. Not sure though when the CDC will allow ships to sail from or to us ports
  8. If we wait for a vaccine that could come in 18 months and for everyone to get it some of the cruise lines may not be around or have less ships as they are losing money as the ships are now just doing loops in the ocean. With no income coming in. they could get non us cruises going if ports have reopened to soften the financial blow but the virus would have to stop spreading for it to happen
  9. Likely the Carnival Spirit could be used as it will go out of service till Canada reopens to Cruises in July
  10. The problem is if Canada closes ports then cruises out of Seattle would be affected as well as the Jones act requires a stop outside the states. Seattle based stops typically stops in Victoria so a closure would affect it aswell Canada wants to delay that start of the season
  11. This one seems to survive in heat as Singapore has cases and it is always above 28 Celsius there
  12. I did a similar cruise in 2012 on Radiance and for boarding day. There is a all aboard time that is in place for the purpose of the muster drill. Passengers have to be onboard for the drill but are welcome to go ashore again after the drill. On day 2 the all aboard time is similar to that for a port of call
  13. Boarding Caribbean Princess recently there was a passenger in line at the entrance to security that was told to go to terminal 21 as there were sailing on the Island Princess. Don’t know how the luggage handlers can miss the island Princess name on the luggage tag
  14. does the bars serve Canned or fountain coke during the diamond happy hour on all ships or is it different from ship to ship. I am sailing on Serenade in August and want to know if i can use the 3 drink vouchers to get unopened cans that i can store in the stateroom fridge
  15. I was on Caribbean Princess in November and was not required to show my passport in Martinique even though i had it on me when I went ashore
