  1. We are shifting our January 2021 cruise, to January 2022. Since our inside room is category 10, we need to book mid deck 3. When I look at deck 4, there seems to be a couple of issues. Michael's club and the casino. I'm not sure what is in the middle between the photo gallery and the casino and if that is an issue, my guess is no. I'm thinking rooms 3054 or 3058. I would appreciate any input. Thank you in advance and I hope you are doing well.
  2. Thank you for this. I was told it many years ago, but forgot. I believe many people do not look at the whole picture of possibilities where they could have been infected. Like getting worn down before they travel and being more susceptible. Did they fly? If they drove, did they stop to eat, get gas and use a restroom, stay in a hotel and so on. That said, yes I believe you can get sick from being on a cruise.
  3. We are in the process of lifting our January 2021 to another in January 2022, we're still deciding on the one we prefer. We both work from home in our personal business and know how fragile our income is. And really, January 2021 isn't that far off in the grand scheme of things.
  4. After a slight delay of ten years, in 1999 we finally took our honeymoon on the Mercury. I had never been on a true vacation before and was quite worried if I would be able to figure out how to cruise. It was supposed to be a one and done, but we booked the Millennium for the next year and we continued to vacation (land and cruise) from then on. Yes many changes have come about with Celebrity, but we still find the product to be very good. We are currently looking at doing a Lift and Shift for our upcoming January cruise. Not ideal, but with the current situation it makes sense for us.
  5. Yep, Coke. I had a lot of diet coke on my last cruise...with a smidge of whiskey.
  6. Besides the volume of calls, I wonder if this problem is exasperated by people working from home? I've seen amazing call centers where there are big screens with the number of calls on hold, longest person on hold, length of current call and so on. If they are working from home, they probably don't have the same accountability. That said, a lot of business's were not good before the current situation.
  7. The first thing that came to mind was the white chocolate chip and macadamia nut cookies. I'm not a big sweet lover (just a big guy), but I loved them. They were very hard to find though.
  8. OP I wish you the best solution. I just emailed my 'big travel agency' today in the hopes of doing the L&S. 1/21 to 1/22. I was unable to find another 10 day that was in the same class, we are S and the only ship doing a 10 day January 2022 Caribbean is the Edge. So I am looking at the Equinox (love the ship) and a 9 day to the ABC's. If what I read on the Celebrity website is correct, all our perks will transfer. It seams like the best solution at the moment.
  9. Also agree it makes sense to do the math with perks. For us, we drinks a bit so no brainer. We also need the internet for our business. Those two alone are a big savings for us, depending on the actual cruise fair. And so far it has made sense. Last year we had a lot of OBC so my wife was able to get the iPad she had wanted for a while. Another example on our cruise this past January, we were on a 10 day and I can easily guarantee you that our drink bill would have been WELL over $1,500. So, it depends what works for you.
  10. Learned from this? That I was right, no matter what proof is out there, some folks are just going to do what they want to do. And the "I want it crowd no matter what", is stronger than I thought. As for Americans, we are not the best at learning from history. Let alone changing our behaviors accordingly.
  11. Thank you for obeying the rules (or, 'suggestions' as some people take them). I keep seeing news reports of people that are disregarding the rules and then having outbreaks of the virus. And yet they won't change their thinking. I can't imagine how hard it is to be a health care professional and having to risk your life over somebody that doesn't 'believe' this is serious.
  12. Per the norm for us, the cruise price has gone up for our Jan 2021 cruise. We also have all four perks, so the discount does not make sense. If I understand correctly. 🤔
  13. I don't know if it is still there, but there was a bar in Milwaukee, WI that had some type of sensor if someone didn't turn on the water in the bathroom to wash their hands. When they excited the bathroom, an alarm with a red light would go off.
  14. I am not a fan of the air dryers as well. But I also hate when they stick a towel roll on the sink counter and you have to rip off a section. My wish - when things get moving again, that the 'non washers' would start. I'm amazed there is no age or social status that fits a 'non washer'.
