  1. Yes , NIH cancelled the hydroxychloroquine...probably because they were pressured by the libs. There were many testimonials of people who were given it and had fabulous results! By the way, my sister (a nurse) has been on this drug for over 30 years (for RA) and has never been told that it could cause heart problems. From what the scientists have said, If you HAVE an existing heart problem, this drug may not be good for you.
  2. Great! Well my DH may want to try this restaurant as a treat....he loves raw oysters (not me). Maybe he can find someone to go with him:) I think you have to like raw oysters to be able to watch people eating them:)
  3. I would hope that RC would require proof that you have received a covid vaccine or at least sign off that you won't sue RC if you contract it while cruising. I hate shots, but am looking forward to this one! In fact, I would love to be one of the volunteers who are testing the vaccines. To think of how wonderful this vaccine will help the WORLD is so wonderful...and we will no longer have to feel like we are locked up, living in fear, or feel like we are living in a socialist/communist country!
  4. Just make sure there isn't a charge for the lobster and oysters as they may be specialty items:)
  5. I agree...this is a very subjective decision. After experiencing the Oasis class ships' specialty restaurants, we feel it is just not worth the extra money, especially Wonderland, which looks interesting and unique but the food is awful. When we left there we had to go to the Windjammer to eat. Spending $716 (4 x 179) extra on food when there are so many complimentary places to eat on Symphony, just doesn't make sense to us. (Even though the tip is included if you pay pre-cruise, you really do feel like you should leave a tip).
  6. I'm on day 90 so I called my TA....only to be told that we would have to wait until 90 days from July 22!!!! I was told that the TA didn't send the paperwork to RC until April 8 which RC processed it on April 22 for our May 10 cruise that was cancelled by RC and on March 27 I told our TA to put in for a full refund. Needless to say that I am VERY upset with our TA because they didn't send our request to RC on MARCH 27:( They had no explanation...just an "I'm sorry." Should I try and call our credit card company which the amount has long been paid off?
  7. Totally feel for you!!! I'm on day 87 and I haven't received a penny! I plan to call on Thurs. when it will be day 90! This really is ridiculous considering so many people have not had to wait this long!
  8. I agree....we won't either until we receive our refund (cancelled on March 27) from the May Symphony cruise RC cancelled.
  9. I agree. We do not plan on booking any more cruises until we get our money. It would be different if they processed "in order the cancellation was received." But the refunds seem to be all over the place! It's just not right that people who cancelled in March are still waiting and people who cancelled in May and June have already received theirs! I know, I know...life isn't fair!!!:):):)
  10. You sure are one of the lucky ones!! Good for you! We requested our refund on March 27 after RC cancelled our May 10 Symphony cruise. We still have not received a penny and our big box TA's recording says not to call about this until after the 90 day mark. So should I wait for 2 weeks to call if we don't receive our credit? Or call RC about this and bug them?
  11. I'm in the same boat (er...excuse the pun:). I check my cc every day now for my refund for my May 10th cruise that I cancelled at the end of March. I did receive an email from RC at the end of April asking for my patience and that I should hear from them again by May 6 unless I receive my refund. I haven't heard a word.....still waiting............. I've read that many people have called RC and/or their cc company. How much longer should I wait to do this?
  12. No way would I cruise with a mask on. How are you supposed to eat, drink, or swim in the pool with a mask on when you are doing this around people? Nah...we'll wait until the vaccine is available, hopefully by the end of the year. Who really knows how much a mask helps? Fauci changed his mind two times concerning this subject. In March he said that wearing it really only makes you feel good, and doesn't really help stop the virus. Then he said by wearing the mask you are preventing others from getting it and now he's saying it can help both ways....go figure:( And remember when some peop
  13. Is your final payment date now extended to May or June 2021?
  14. I'm not sure if this has been asked/answered: If our final payment is due at the end of May for our Sept. 2020 cruise and we want to lift and switch it to Sept., 2021, will our final payment be extended to May, 2021?
