  1. Yes, agree. There is also talk that some are also turning into long haulers and no one knows the extent of it.
  2. Unfortunately as the younger generation is getting infected, it is hitting them hard. I think even after cruising restarts it is going to be an ever changing situation. And if masks are required, based on what I have seen TV with sports fans there will be plenty who won't listen. Target field the home of the Minnesota Twins baseball team has a mask mandate and you can only take it off when eating or drinking, many-many folks don't wear one.
  3. Good to hear! Maybe the website got it's second vaccine shot?
  4. DaveKathy, happy for you. Unfortunately it is random. I had no problems for years and then two years ago it was very buggy for me. Tried three different browsers and private mode in each. I'm on a Mac and I had my wife on Windows give it a go. Nothing worked. Then a week later it was fine. But these are all trivial issues, this internet thing is a fad and I can't imagine they are losing any money let alone frustrated customers.
  5. You know little things like keeping kids out of adult areas and chair hogging.
  6. If cruise lines would have actually enforced their own rules starting years ago, it certainly would have enhanced many passengers trips immensely. And those rules were nothing compared to what they will have to deal with now.
  7. Instead, 'to the extent practicable' In a new checklist for port and local health operators, CDC replaced the 'within the same 12-hour period' phrase in both references with 'to the extent practicable.'
  8. 😁 The whole situation is fluid. As others have said, the November date could very well get moved again and possibly more than once. I might be in the minority, but I don't believe there is a conspiracy to keep cruising down. One of the reasons we all love cruising, is the unique experience. That unique experience is also going to make it even harder to have proper Covid procedures that work. From embarkation to debarkation and everything in between. Finally as hard as it may be to hear, there are more important things we are dealing with right now. We are still losing to many souls and on
  9. We have to fly and do some major planning to go on vacation, nothing less than seven days is worth it. Since the cost of air is a certainty, we try to maximize our time away.
  10. We decided last month to try to move our deposit for our January 2022 trip to 2023, if we can't we'll just eat the $100 deposit. Were tired of all of the unknowns and instability of the ever changing situation. I booked a villa on the south side of Jamaica, near a small village. Wide open house plan and right on the beach, so lots of fresh sea air. We invited our two adult kids and their significant others, they just have to get there and we'll cover the rest. If need be because of the Covid situation, we will just stay at the villa and have the cook pick up any grocery items.
  11. Agree with KWW88, it really isn't that much time to kill. You will most likely get to the airport around Noon. I like the brunch idea, it will be relaxing and you start off your trip with a belly full of good food.
  12. My question for those who say if the crew and passengers are fully vaccinated, we should be able to cruise. How do you prove they are trully vaccinated? Really for sure, vaccinated. Of course if the vaccination is given to the crew by the cruise line, it is much easier to know. But passengers? I am fully vaccinated and the little 3x5" card looks like a 12 year old could fake one in less than five minutes. I remember when this all started and cruise lines were taking temperatures of passengers to embark the ship, so people started suggesting to take Ibuprofen beforehand to make sure if you d
  13. The way cases like this go through the courts, it could be years in the making.
  14. Maybe I'm off today, but I thought the latest packages included airfare?
  15. LOL, no. A true Wisconsinite here, so I was channeling my child hood from the 70's.
