  1. Thanks for your thoughts you've provided. Here's mine: If there were to be a true emergency, many passengers will be in a panic, running around trying to figure out what to do next ... even though they attended a muster drill on deck. That's why the announcement is made to proceed to your muster station as noted on your key card and cabin door, and why crew members are stationed in stair lobbies to provide instructions. Just as the room stewards do now, they will check each stateroom to be sure the guests have evacuated. I see no reason to believe we'll all be doomed if we don't go physically stand under our lifeboats ahead of time. This is just my opinion. As you've indicated above, your mileage may vary. 🙂

  3. My DW and I have been faithfully remaining quarantined at home for the past six weeks. We worship via live stream, and pick up groceries curbside after ordering online. We chat with friends and family via PortalTV, Zoom, and Facebook Messenger calls. Our state is to begin reopening this coming Friday. It will be interesting to see how that goes. We have a cruise booked for next February, and have faith that all this will be substantially over by then.
  4. Royal Caribbean has filed a patent for EMUSTER ... possible electronic safety drills before sailing. It would take place on your cabin's interactive TV screen. This would certainly be a welcomed relief from cramming up on deck, which is about as anti-social-distancing as you can get. What do you think of the concept? Do you think Holland America will follow suit with a similar program?

  6. That's beautiful! Thanks for sharing it.
  7. It was disclosed today that a Saudi Arabian fund has purchased 8.2% of Carnival Corporation. While there may be some concern with a foreign entity being the third largest shareholder, it has brought a significant uptick in CCL stock. It's up just over 23% as I make this post. It also indicates that there is confidence in the future of the company. What do you think?
  8. Perhaps cancel and get your deposit back. Don't re-book yet. I would think they will be running great specials later on to entice cruisers to come back. Just a thought. Edited to add ... like Colo Cruiser said! We were posting at the same time!
  9. I am not at all worried. Of course, I haven't made final payment yet, so my financial I interest is minimal. I feel in my gut that this will be resolved within a few weeks. Things won't be the same, but we'll cruise again.
  10. That's fantastic! I saw on cruise ship tracker that Disney and RCI have a ship at their respective private islands. This is an excellent time to do this for the crew. Don't you know they're having a blast doing what is normally forbidden?
  11. I agree. News outlets are reporting that incidences of the virus in China are going down, and that people here is the USA who have had the virus have recovered or are recovering nicely. While it's a potentially serious disease, I'm afraid there has been too much knee jerking over it. I'm looking forward to my next Princess cruise. I'm just sorry I have to wait until early next year!
  12. Congratulations to the OP. Complimentary upgrades are very nice. We're booked in an MA, so I'm doubtful we'll be upgraded. If we are, that will be nice; but I'm perfectly happy with the booking I've made. Smooth sailing!
  13. Yes. You should be notified (if not already) about the disposition of the payment you've made.
