  1. This used to be a trick but I think Carnival started advertising it more IIRC -- for breakfast I love ordering fried eggs (over easy, sunny side up, etc.) at the omelette station. There is usually someone else in line who is surprised you can do this.
  2. Love the Spirit class! As others have said it's the perfect size for us, great layout, and not crowded. Our favorite spot to hang out in the evenings was the little bar in the back of the ship next to the art gallery. It's the service bar for MDR but it has seating as well. Small and quiet which means plenty of opportunity to get to know the bartenders and the few other regulars who would frequent this bar.
  3. Looking forward to another bumper boats video with Imagination's beaching.
  4. My theory (and it's just a theory) is that Fascination is tied up until space opens up at Aliaga. I wouldn't be surprised if they already have an agreement to sell her for scrap, but there is currently no room with four cruise ships currently beached. Once at least one of those ships is completely scrapped, Fascination will make her way to Aliaga. Until then, it's probably cheaper to tie her up at Cadiz than to have her out in the water.
  5. I think I figured it out. There's a footnote that says "Due to the three-month reporting lag, we include Silversea Cruises' result of operations from January 1 through March 31 for the quarters ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 and from October 1 through March 31 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019." I bet that's the source of the revenues on the income statement.
  6. I think the first cruises will be short cruises (4 days or less). Those cruises will probably only go to private islands to minimize the amount of cruise passengers mingling with locals (less chance of spreading the virus). I'm not sure if there will be cruises out of ports that could not reach the private islands for a 4 day cruise at first. If things go well, they'll probably expand to short cruises to other ports that will accept cruise passengers. After that they'll return to longer cruises.
  7. I'm curious what the passenger ticket revenues are as well. Since no cruises departed this quarter that I'm aware of, all the money they took in from customers should still be sitting in customer deposits, no?
  8. I'd love to see the old school ships on a stick with the marble bases.
  9. Not to mention that the other cruise lines will probably be hiring around the same time, so they'll all be competing for workers.
  10. Those photos are so surreal. I know the ship is being scrapped; it's just crazy to see them banged together like that. What a sad ending for those ships.
  11. If anyone else is wondering what the Inspiration looked like on the inside right before she was sold, check out this video. These photos were taken the last day crew were allowed on board. I imagine she's even more stripped down now with furniture, etc. removed.
  12. So sad to see how poor she looks on the outside. It's like a metaphor for the state of the industry right now. 😢
  13. Pictures have been posted in the other thread. There is also a video of a rusted Fascination arriving in Cadiz. I'd recommend avoiding that thread if you don't wish to see them. 😢
  14. Maybe Festivale but I've always loved the name Tropicale so that what I'm hoping for.
