  1. I always fly in at least three days prior to my cruise if flying from U.S.A. - more if cruising from Europe or U.K. Great to sight see and not be stressed in case of unforeseen difficulties. Remember the 2017 shooting at Fort Lauderdale airport??? I flew out three days before my cruise on Westjet. Winnipeg, Manitoba --> Calgary, Alberta --> Fort Lauderdale. When we were within an hour or two of Fort Lauderdale, the pilot came on saying that there was a shooting and there was no room even on the tarmac to land a plane. We were re-routed to Montreal, Quebec and arrived at
  2. Well today, November 19th, the Manitoba government mandated even more stricter rules regarding Covid. We have been Code Red since November 12th and unfortunately some people are not taking this virus seriously. They showed huge lines of shoppers (mainly at the big box stores) and some not social distancing. We also had a rally about 100 people last Saturday objecting to wearing masks in a small city that has one of the highest rates; they had to transfer patients to Winnipeg as the hospital had no available beds.

  4. I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba (Canada) and effective today, the entire province is in Code Red. We have seen a huge uptick in cases (for us) and yesterday the death toll was nine with 431 new cases. I know that does not seem like a lot compared to other provinces, states, countries etc. but is a huge increase for the province. We are in code red for at least two weeks and hint from the government that it will be extended a further two weeks to cover two incubation periods. All non-essential businesses are closed (most retail stores, salons etc.). You can order on-line for some bu
  5. Century Cruises -- Only in America… are there handicap parking places in front of a skating rink. It could be a parent/grandparent who is watching someone skate Only in America… do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front. So true Only in America… do they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering. Could be a person with vision problems, who chooses to walk and use the ATM machine instead of going to as bank.
