  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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 to follow protocols and take common-sense precautions. ANCHORS AWEIGH!!!
  4. I'm with you 100%. Such glitches, while not earth-moving, erode faith in the accuracy of the rest of the app.
  5. You make a valid point that I believe will apply to most sooner-than-later cruises.
  6. When the Medallion app is opened on my wife's phone, the countdown to sailing shows the cruise we cancelled due to Covid-19. It doesn't show up on my phone, or in the Cruise Personalizer online. Any thoughts on how to remove it? I've already tried uninstalling then reinstalling the app, and I called Princess and got no help there.
  7. September 21 is the deadline for submitting comments with regard to the Centers for Disease Control allowing cruising to resume in the U.S. Follow this link, if you haven't already, and let your thoughts be made known. https://www.regulations.gov/document?D=CDC-2020-0087-0001 There is a blue button over on the right side that says "Comment Now!" Click it and you're on your way.

  9. I recently found laundry tags on a shirt from two different cruises! I pulled them off, then was sorry I did. They do spark warm memories!
  10. In looking at the Royal Princess for May, 2021 interior cabins aren't priced on the website. They may eventually, but I suspect they are still considering the possibility of having to quarantine folks and not wanting to "trap" them in an inside cabin.
  11. The precautions and protocols I've been reading seem good to me. As mentioned, it's the yo-yos who feel they are "above the law" that give me pause. We're booked for next May, so I'm hoping things will be somewhat settled down by then.
  12. Maybe they should build a completely new ship, compatible with new social distancing regulations. They could name it the ms Divoc, which is Covid backwards. After all, Covid is changing the face of cruising ... possibly forever.
  13. No, I wouldn't opt for Fred Olsen just to sail my favorite ships. As another has said, it's the HAL crews that have kept us coming back.
  14. 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. 🙂
