  1. Thanks for the info. We have a business that is essential so we have been open (although I wish we wasn’t) but have taken every precaution we can with social distancing, signs, tape on the floor and sanitizing after every customer. I do not think this is close to being over. A lot of people are not taking it serious enough and I think there will be a second wave. I’m glad they closed the schools for the rest of the school year. It will be interesting to see what they do for the next school season. I’m in a suburb right on the columbus line. I like Dewine and think he’s taking every precaution.
  2. Did Dewine confirm school closing for the test if the school year? I have t heard that or heard from my daughters school yet. I am being told that Trump is saying everything will open up the first of May. I really hope not. This is far from being over and I see a round two coming up if so.
  3. I have been watching the stock for RC and also NCL and Carnival. I wish I would have bought back when it went down to $20 because at this point I could have sold and doubled my money. I'm still waiting to pull the trigger and not sure when (or if) I want to jump in at this point. I wouldn't be doing it for any OBC or dividends and certainly not doing it with money that if I lost it then it would devastate my wallet. Merely for the thrill (and hopes) that I could make an extra buck (or course you never know...and once again I'm kicking myself for not jumping in when it was so low and now doubled what that would have been). I haven't been buying and selling on the market for many years and I'm a little rusty...but, thinking about jumping back in again with several "affordable" stocks. I really hope the cruise lines recover and not file bankruptcy. I can't wait to get back to cruising but I feel like it's going to be quite some time before that happens. 😞
  4. I did not have any concerns with getting back in time and there was plenty of time to shop before going back to the ship. I’m hi early not sure what ship others were on since I didn’t ask but did see some around the ship after that.
  5. Now I remember where I read about Carnival. Check this out (although not "official" yet). https://www.travelweekly.com/Cruise-Travel/Carnival-CEO-talks-coronavirus-crisis-on-HBO-show
  6. Oh that's crazy that they are making people put down a cash deposit when you have the 125% certificate. If I took the cert, it would pay for the cruise I was looking at booking and I would have more left over. No way do I want to put out more cash when I have cash I already put out to book in the first place. I may have to rethink taking the 125%. :( I had to LOL at the whack-a-mole comment. Spot on. haha
  7. Well, we haven't talked anymore on the subject. We were thinking of Symphony OTS for the end of May but now I'm doubting that they will even be back on schedule again by then. I'm going to take a look at other cruises during the summer and see. I just don't know at this point now. It was supposed to be for April 12th. :( I was so bummed when they cancelled but knew it was coming. I heard a rumor the other day that Carnival was considering cancelling the rest of the year??? That can't be so is it? We booked our flight using points so as soon as we cancelled it just returned our points. So, we got lucky with that. Yea the foot and ankle is still not going well. :( I have yet to get a phone call from the foot specialist. I have a feeling I won't until all this blows over. I'm still in so much pain and still have so much swelling by mid day to evening. I look like I have elephant legs. Yea they have a stay at home order for the last 1+ weeks but it doesn't apply to our business and it's still booming. I'm kinda shocked with what all is going on at this time that people are still out spending a lot of money. But, I'm not complaining. Thanks so much for your thoughts and checking in on me. Take care! :) Thanks so much. I just feel like it's never going to end. :( I'm looking forward to that day as well. Sakari is so bummed about not getting to go and it was going to be her birthday. You take care too.
  8. Thanks for the info. I'm going to save this post for future use for when I do have to do this.
  9. I logged into RC site and clicked on my booking and planning and it popped up. Now that I have already read it, it now appears at the top where it says "recently viewed", "Order history" then "300 USD CREDIT" then my "cart". I took a picture of it with my phone for reference, just in case it disappeared. I'll try to attach it using my phone.
  10. We were looking at that cruise too and another one. I hope you get to take your cruise graphicguy! Fingers crossed for the both of us. I didn't say anything about adding another 25% ?? I'm asking if we used the 125% certificate to pay for a different cruise, since ours was cancelled by RC, and then if they extended the time again (which is now mid-May at this point but IF they extend that date again and cancelled the cruise booked to replace our April 12th cruise) to a later date, then would they just reissue another 125% certificate?
  11. We have $300 in OBC from using our points. When I log into RC, my cancelled cruise comes up with a pop up box that says they will move it to your next cruise and there's a link to click on it. I don't have a booked cruise yet since they just decided to extend the cancellations yesterday. I hope that pop up box still comes up for me to move it to a new cruise once we book again.
  12. Our Oasis cruise was cancelled (April 12) and have been looking at other cruises and found one for May 30th. Those of you that don't think cruising will start up again any time in May or June, if we booked that May 30th cruise, wouldn't they just extend another 125% certificate and you'd rebook again? Just wondering.
