  1. about 3 million people in the usa die every year, 2020 will be no different.
  2. Unfortunately in the USA right now, no one has any rights, it all comes down to the opinion/political affiliation of the judge/district attorney of your case, not based on legal facts/precedent.
  3. it is nice to get off the ship but not a necessity, we would just stay on the ship, would not pay for an excursion. Once we took a post Brazil Olympics repositioning cruise from Rio - Florida, zero ports/stops about 13 days aprox, one of the best cruises we ever took.
  4. My home is the little orange striped one on the upper right
  5. I get flu shots every year and almost every year I get the flu, 2019/2020 has been a humdinger for me Dec 3 a cold virus, Dec 22 some type of flu virus, Jan 29 some type of flu virus. Been basically locked down since march 23 but i have to go back to work in october during wave 3. What have i done to prepare myself - exercise, diet. my blood pressure is now normal so if I get the Wuhan I got a fighting chance.
  6. da crepes are to big and heavy, they need to be smaller, light, somewhat crisp, in concept I like crepes but after I get one I am disappointed and I dont try again until the next cruise, one bad crepe experience per cruise is my limit, always trying to recapture that first crepe experience as a backpacker on the streets of Paris so many years ago.
  7. Hmm we have done about 4 TAs, if cost is a factor fly to europe and sail back to the states (you pay no international flight tax on the way over to europe, it is flight back that pays that tax, this would save about $200 pp if the port was in England) Once we got an outside 15 day for $299 on Royal, we probably booked within 2 weeks of departure.
  8. NCL, Holland, Disney, Royal, Windstar, Carnival, used to be a backpacker, just so convenient to cruise only down side is the time in port, however we had two nights shanghai, tokyo, and the port closest to Beijing. Overnights are the best. Reposition cruising is very reasonable pricing, also off season and after holidays, cheers
  9. bummer but not really unexpected, thanks
  10. We have done a 28 day Hong Kong to Vancouver, and a 30 day HNL to Syd (ending dec 1, 2019) We use to just really enjoy cruising.
  11. im not the smartest tool in the shed, took me a bit, thanks lol
  12. So is the 12/15 true? I was eyeing a 46 day on princess from US to asia around the middle of Oct, I was hopeful but now things look bleak
  13. I think someone on the cc once told a story something like this: I needed to get some preventative drugs to prevent disease while stationed in Africa, I asked the physician about possible side effects of the drug that could be bad for my health, the doctor said you know what else is bad for your health, - Malaria.
  14. I was right with you until you said you went to cinque terre from Naples. This has nothing to do with frugal, it has to do with bad choices. I mean say what? How many days were you in port in naples? thats about an 8 hour train ride.
  15. We did the Road to Hana, I know it is in a lot of guide books, but a lot of driving, we were not that impressed. Last time we were in Maui from the cruise port (short distance behind shopping center) we just took the public bus, numerous destinations, great beaches, lahaina, and a transfer gets you out to kannapali beach
  16. yeah the anarchists messed this up bad, bottom line is we need to get cruising, i concur
  17. definitely need to get their "ship", (actually ships but), yes florida gets your ships ready, cause cruising is starting soon, So Florida USA here we come. The CDC wants to ensure all protocols are followed before we can begin, the CDC is eager to get this going and florida is the perfect place to start, most cruise ships anywhere.
  18. I concur zero out cruises aint the way to go, we got to get back to cruising, So there will be no more disappointment
