  1. Thanks for the advise, I called and could get 2 week extension which goes to November 9th and maybe more info will be forth coming in early November.
  2. Booked this cruise in January 2020 before I was aware of covid and who thought it would still be affecting us all. Final payment is 10 days from now and must decide to rebook to next year especially if we can't roam in ports by ourselves or make final payment and hope Carnival cancels and receive $300 obc. I got this cruise as a solo for $368.00 and to rebook next year is $510.00. Does anybody have and insight if Mobile is any close to being prepared to have the port ready? My gut says it will be cancelled but would be nice to have any insight into readiness of Mobile port, thanks all.
  3. Scheduled out of Mobile january 9, 2021 and booked before Covid showed up, if not allowed to get off ship unless on carnival excursion I would not be interested in sailing. Hope as some have said they offer an opt out if they do sail but I figure Mobile may be low down on their list of ships to get ready when they do being sailing.
  4. I have a 5 day cruise out of Mobile January 9, 2021, I booked it in January 2020 and never imagined the covid effect on cruises to last this long. Now with access to ports on my own hinted at not being allowed not anxious to take this trip. My final payment is coming up in 3 weeks and if Carnival cancels and offers OBC for another cruise can this be used to make final payment on another cruise? My January 9th cruise was reduced to a very low price even with the single supplement so realize a new booking will be much more expensive. Anyone dealt with this type situation? Thanks.

  6. Thank you so much for your quick and informative reply. Realize it is a year away but thought I would check that off and I am sure I will have many questions as this is whole new experience but I am looking so forward to this experience.
  7. Looking at Danube River cruise and bus tour next September at goes to Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria, and Germany. Will be my first time to Europe and do I need some special visa to visit these countries? Thanks for any help.
  8. Each year I switch between Jacksonville and Mobile for a January cruise as both are easy driving distance from Tennessee. Jacksonville gets me to Princess Cay or Half Moon Cay and Mobile gets me to Progresso and Cozumel. I like the smaller fantasy ships and have had enough of the large and getting larger ships and finally discovered Star Clipper for trips to small islands main cruise lines can't get into. Feels like the remaining Fantasy class ships may be hanging on a short rope.
  9. 5 star Excellence ressorts in Punta Cana have abut 1 get one free plus free airport transfers and great cancellation policy if you want to compare.
  10. Do you use Uber to get to port and are they readily available pre and post cruise?
  11. Know some cruises are without solo supplement but is there an easy way to determine those cruises or do you have to call Windstar to see which cruises fits that category? I wish there was an easy way to see those with no solo supplement.
  12. Thanks so much that is great info and I will use this for my upcoming trip to Progresso.
  13. Did you find Autoprogresso to be a reliable tour operator and do they deliver what they promise? I want to do the ruins but don't want to be in a big group with a Carnival excursion. Thanks.
  14. Thanks to all for your positive thoughts and sure Europe will stay on my list in the future. Roz hope you all are full steam ahead in Music City soon and get the Gulch open in time for the Titans to do good this year.
  15. Altho Gate 1 sent email that my June final payment date was put off until 30 days before my trip in September decided to cancel this 17 day trip due to all the uncertainty with Europe opening and availability of air. Gate 1 was very good about this and offered 75% back if you cancel rather than lovsing all of deposit or using deposit as future trip credit until 2022 which I thought was very generous and I took that as I am looking at two other trips with them I intend to take next year as things stabilize. I really wanted to do this trip in September as this would be my first time in Europe
