  1. DH and I were on that cruise, too. It was a very unique cruise. I wish I was back there. 😁
  2. One of the cruisers on my Amsterdam RT July 27 JOTS cruise must be a travel agent [or have access] and mentioned that a new July 25 cruise was showing up on the cruising power site. After spending 1 hr and 22 mins on the phone I was able to book the new itinerary. It is only 11 nights rather than 12nts. But, I was glad to get a large balcony on deck 7. The price is a little less and in line with one less night cruise. Also, this morning I got an email that one of my FCCs was applied. [from a March cruise } Win-Win This is the itinerary: STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN [overnight before
  3. Thanks for this information. We have a Mardi Gras cruise scheduled for February 7, 2021. We know this is not going to happen. Even if the cruise takes place I can not see a scenario that New Orleans would let a cruise ship dock for 3 days and let thousands of passengers roam their streets. . . . and I doubt Mardi Gras [as we know it] will take place next February. There is no Mardi Gras cruise currently available for 2022. We usually book with Royal Caribbean, so I am less familiar with the L & S procedure for Celebrity. We booked with a Sail Beyond promo that included
  4. I found this article today and thought it was very interesting. I can see where a coating such as this applied to the many exterior railings and surfaces could be VERY useful for cruises. https://fredericksburg.com/news/state-and-regional/afraid-of-touching-objects-amid-covid-19-this-virginia-tech-professor-has-a-solution/article_ea745ae2-878c-5e81-97be-3d28261a3927.html I feel there are going to be many strategies that need to be implemented to make cruising safe. We will need some out of the box approaches.
  5. Mapquest says 15 min driving time. An airport taxi service says 22 minutes. I would like a little more time. . . but, it sounds doable.
  6. DH and I were on the March 7 Grandeur cruise out of Baltimore. When we left our house there were no CV cases in Virginia [where I live]. When were returned it was a different world. . . . but, there were a number of measures onboard I think will be the norm. I did not notice anyone shaking hands or hugging and hand sanitizer was everywhere. You had to use it. [before you enter the theatre, at all meals, at the casino entrance, just everywhere] I noticed the crew being very firm about that. We had our temperature take
  7. Today I got all of the taxes, fees, etc refunded from the second cruise of our B2B on GR that RCL cancelled. [March 19] We were out to sea when all cruising ended and lucky enough to get back to shore without any CV or isolation after our cruise. We have 2 FCC. We have thought of taking at least 1 of them--but, it did not seem to be worth a try since so many were still waiting for refunds.
  8. I agree the higher priced cabins will have priority. However, there will be a need for special needs cabins [many are inside or OV] and OV family cabins.
  9. DH and I were on the March 7 Grandeur cruise out of Baltimore. When we left our house there were no CV cases in Virginia [where I live]. When were retuned it was a different world. . . . but, there were a number of measures onboard I think will be the norm. I did not notice anyone shaking hands or hugging and hand sanitizer was everywhere. You had to use it. [before you enter the theatre, at all meals, at the casino entrance, just everywhere] We had our temperature taken and answered questions about travel history before we ever went through security at the termin
  10. I suggest you spend time reading about Alaska on the AK port of call board. There are VERY helpful people there that can give you lots of good information. Alaska is a very different kind of cruise. There are many questions you need to ask yourself and they will inform your itinerary. I wish I had spent more time researching before I planned my trip. I would have done more DIY for the land portion of our trip. For example--How long do you have for your vacation? If only 1 week then a roundtrip is all you have time for. But, that will give you the least flavor of Alaska. I
  11. I am glad to hear this. I have no health issues, but who knows if Drs. would sign a letter? I have a Baltic cruise booked that leaves 3 days after my 70th birthday. LOL
  12. To answer the other part of your question. Would I pay $420 more to upgrade? Normally I would be all over that. Yes, that is a good deal for 4 passengers. However, I would not do it for a July 9 cruise. That just puts you $420 further "in" on the cruise. I have 2 FCC to use. July 9 is before the end of the 100 day federal stoppage. ] JMHO
  13. This is a quote from a review of aft JS cabin 7560. [suesnake2002] With the coast guard inspection rooms were ready at 2.. . . . Muster drill was held outside. At two we went to our room. We noticed our luggage on the metal racks, so we just grabbed them and took them to our room. This way we could unpack and get this cruise going. I had a mid ship js on rhapsody once. I felt this room was a little smaller. But unlike rhapsody, we had a huge walk in closet. We did show our room to friends we made on the ship. And they referred to our closet as another cabin. Lol
  14. Yes, the 2 outside Aft JS on deck 7 do have a walk in closet. The aft JS cabin next to mine had one. I visited that cabin. I think it was 7150. IIRC we were in 7152.
