  1. Due in part to one of the D's being a DINO 😉 Tom
  2. We missed a brand new ship by 1 sailing - perhaps it was the Glory? We were originally booked on the inaugural sailing, but it was finished up early and they slipped in a 5 nighter (as I recall) before ours. Still, it had plenty of "new ship smell". I wonder, after all this time, just how much "new ship smell" the Mardi Gras will have? At least there won't be cigarette smells embedded around the casino yet! My vote is for 8/7 - just switched from a forward excel corner suite to an aft corner a couple of weeks ago (someone else must have thrown in the towel).
  3. Agreed - but lets bundle in abolishing daylight saving time while we're at it ! 🙂 I had a cruise cut an hour short (on the last night!) one time thanks to that... Tom
  4. I've always thought a consumption tax would be more equitable (nuts and bolts for equity sake to be determined). Tom
  5. I was not sure if their response meant that they (themselves) wouldn't or that anti-vaxxers still wouldn't -- having not gone back and read their previous posts. Tom
  6. I wonder how many anti-vaxxers would take that shot in the arm if it was at a pandemic level? !
  7. Perhaps it's out of sight, out of mind. With all other modes of travel, people are long gone - free to spread whatever they have with some degree of difficulty to trace. Put a few thousand people on a ship for a few days, and the petri dish effect can be seen (by media too). Having said that, if the crew and guests are vaccinated --- what's the harm?? Tom
  8. And, a little more science (relating to risk of infection from a contaminated surface) released by the CDC on Monday: Science Brief: SARS-CoV-2 and Surface (Fomite) Transmission for Indoor Community Environments Findings of these studies suggest that the risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection via the fomite transmission route is low, and generally less than 1 in 10,000, which means that each contact with a contaminated surface has less than a 1 in 10,000 chance of causing an infection
  9. If they're going to use science when crafting various protocol - they need to be open to adapting that protocol as new findings emerge. I'm sure that eventually they will, but this is layers deep government we're talking about here. 😞 Tom
  10. I hope so - as that would bode well for August! 😄 Tom
  11. Since June just dropped off, I'd say one month - however: Tom
  12. I wonder how the supply lines are in some of those ports as far as provisioning a large ship. No doubt there's less competition for the contract - and probably higher prices owing to everything having to get shipped in to begin with. I'm sure they'll figure out the nuts and bolts - just pleased to see "alternate solutions"! Tom
  13. We're scheduled to board when you debark (8/7). Just waiting for the word, a word, heck - SOME word ! Tom
  14. But, I'd have free meals and entertainment! YIKES
