  1. We sailed her in May, 2003. It was a fantastic 10-day sailing in the Baltic. We, too, lost power for about four hours one day while we were at sea. No lights, no flushing, etc. Being daylight, it was fine. At one port (I forget which) we met her sister. The captains had a good time hailing each other with their horns. We loved the ship. The photo shows what was under the "porpoise" dome.
  2. I always enjoy seeing photos of newbuilds' progress. Thanks, aliaschief, for posting the link.
  3. I just saw another post on this that beat mine by a few minutes! I used the CLIA site, but did not use the boilerplate they provided. Here is what I said: (You are free to copy and use.) I am asking that the CDC/Biden Administration drop the conditional sail order and allow cruising to start in the U.S. The order is obsolete. We now have vaccines and protocols. Multiple ships are cruising other places in the world without spread of the Covid-19 virus. The data is there that cruising can be done safely.Is there any other industry in the U.S. that you prevent from doing business this way?
  4. Thank you, Jacqui, for this information. Yonnie was certainly one of our strongest anchors on the Holland America board. I, too, will pray for Joe in his loss. Rest in peace, KK.
  5. That is certainly my hope, too! Thanks for posting the update.
  6. Just learned that Princess (and Holland America) have cancelled all of this year's sailings to Alaska. How sad Canada powers-that-be are doing this! It's hurting so many people, in Canada as well as Alaska. If you want to move your booking to 2022, better do it quickly before those sailings fill up.) have cancelled all of this year's sailings to Alaska. How sad Canada powers-that-be is doing this!

  8. We're booked for an Alaskan cruisetour for June, 2022. We, too, are hoping that everything is cleared up by then. Final payment is in March. If things aren't open by then, we'll just forget it.
  9. They did not have the proper protocols in place. They didn't think masks were necessary. The protocols for cruising to/from U.S. ports are quite strenuous and thorough.
  10. Remember the old mantra from the sixties, "Give peace a chance?" The only way to determine if the protocols work is to use them. IMO reinstating the cruise ban is knee-jerk, and would likely deal a fatal blow to most of the cruise industry ... and scores of support industries.
  11. That is correct ... as it stands NOW. There is a lot of water to flow under the bridge between now and then, and it's possible that protocols will not be as stringent by then. (We can hope, anyway.) Meantime, I hope they will be more relaxed in May when we plan on being on a cruisetour. I'm so anxious to go that I will minimize excursions and simply enjoy the ship.
  12. This is over-the-top in my opinion. Apparently she is happy to further damage the Florida and U.S. economy. Couldn't she phase her order in over time? So many people in the travel and cruise industry are badly hurting already. Judge, please don't make it worse!
  13. Meghan has too much baggage to serve as a Godmother. How about Laura Bush? She served as First Lady without scandal, and has always presented herself as gracious and caring. I do very much like Bindi as a Princess Godmother, especially for Discovery. It just seems to fit.
  14. I'm trying to have positive thoughts that the CDC won't extend the no-sail order this close to the expiration. It will be good to have cruising back underway, even if it is limited and phased in. The next variable to watch is Canada. Our Alaska cruise tour is dependent upon Canada reopening ... primarily Vancouver. The seasonal flu can be hedged against by getting this year's flu shot. We've been told it is more important than ever. True or not, I don't know. But, I've had mine and am not worried. Covid-19 doesn't make me hesitate at all. I will do my best t
