  1. Don't clump together, I like the saying. It was in full force in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin this weekend. Some people are still not taking this virus seriously! My home town (Kenosha, Wi.) now has over 1,000 cases of the virus and 27 deaths. Salons and barber shops are opening up along with restaurants and bars. Most are at least trying to do the social distancing which is good. We will probably wait a few more weeks before we enter a restaurant. We enjoyed a beautiful Memorial weekend, it's great to get outdoors a lot more now. I wonder if the coronavirus effects bees, they sure are clumped together in this picture. Cheers - Ken & Darlene
  2. Our Sept. 26th cruise on the Ruby Princess was not listed as being canceled. Princess put that announcement out on May 6th, a lot could have changed in a weeks time. Cheers - Ken & Darlene
  3. I Haven't heard a thing from Princess about our Sept. 26th cruise. I knew Princess announced all Alaskan cruises were canceled this year, but our northern California Coastal cruise was still a go from Seattle. If canceled, I'm surprised it's still available to book on Princess's website. Hopefully we should know more in a few days. I'm glad I only have a deposit (FCD) down on it. Final payment would be a big no at this point. If you hear anything from Princess, please post. We also have a roll call for this cruise, folks are wondering the same there. Cheers - Ken & Darlene
  4. I just checked the Port of Seattle website. It has a updated cruise advisory, all 2020 cruises including Princess, Holland America and Carnival cruise ships have been canceled for the rest of the year. Below is the link to read. Our Sept. 26th cruise on the Ruby Princess is history. Cheers - Ken & Darlene https://www.portseattle.org/page/covid-19-updates-2020-cruise-season
  5. Thought I would check in after a couple weeks being silent. First of all, happy "Mother's Day" to all you moms! Wish I could take my wife and family out to a restaurant to celebrate, but will have to settle again for pickup food. I'm glad the warmer weather is arriving, spent yesterday digging up a patch of lawn at my daughter's house to plant a garden in the coming days. I love being outside when all possible. I'm still wondering about the cruise we have booked on the Ruby Princess for Sept. 26 out of Seattle round trip. It's the first cruise after the canceled Alaskan season that is still scheduled to go. It's a northern California coastal cruise. I have until July 26 to make final payment and will wait till that date to do so, but I have my doubts this cruise will happen. On the home front in Wisconsin, we are still in lock down mode till May 26th. I don't understand these protesters with guns storming our state capital and other areas demanding the governor open everything up. What's a couple more weeks of waiting. I'd rather be safe than sorry (just my feelings). Our city (Kenosha, Wi.) now has 629 coronavirus cases with 19 deaths. Wisconsin as a whole has 10,000 cases and about 400 deaths. I've heard some news that a vaccine may be available by Sept., that would be incredible if true. Hope everyone is doing the best they can. Stay safe! Cheers - Ken & Darlene
  6. It's another not much happening day in our household. We decided to take a ride around town this afternoon and dropped off a couple items on our daughters front porch. At least we got to see the grandkids for a few minutes and say hi as we stood on the front lawn. Afterwards we drove to a BP Gas Station by our house and filled up the car. The place was packed with cars filling up as the cost was at a unheard price of 98.9 cents a gallon. It's great to have cheap gas, but no where to go. We have a bunch of Turner Classic Movies recorded to watch. They are actually relaxing to see in the evening instead of all the news about the coronavirus and we refuse to watch our President's daily briefings. Kenosha, Wisconsin where we live now has 189 confirmed cases of the virus with 5 deaths associated with it. Many households in our neighborhood and around town (including us) have been placing heart decorations in our windows. It's nice to see people coming together to beat this virus. Hope everyone is finding something entertaining and fun to do. Keep up the effort and stay safe! Cheers - Ken & Darlene
  7. Thought I would check in, still hunkered down! At least the weather in southern Wisconsin has been nice the past few days. Our morning walks are something Darlene and I really look forward to. Been doing a little yard work and tuned up my lawn mower for the season. Our biggest disappointment is not seeing the family and our 6 grandkids during this virus lockdown. Kenosha as of this morning had 79 cases of the coronavirus. Milwaukee is now over 1000 cases and Wisconsin as a whole is over 2000 cases. I feel bad for those folks and all the medical staff in the hot zones like New York City. These folks are real hero's!!!! Well I hope TMC has a good movie on tonight. I do have a few recorded though. Stay safe everyone. Cheers - Ken & Darlene
  8. Hi Stan, at least you got your cruise in during January on the Grand Princess. We we're able to complete our two week cruise on the Sky Princess in February from the 8th to 22nd. Right after that, everything starting happening with the virus. We will probably miss out on our Sept. 26th cruise on the Ruby. We we're hoping to do another California coastal cruise round trip from Seattle, but we will give it some time and see what happens. Good to hear from you, stay safe my friend. Cheers - Ken & Darlene
  9. Cruiserkenn, hopefully you will get to do your Hawaiian cruise next year. Darlene and I really enjoyed our cruise there on the Ruby Princess. The sea days were relaxing and fun as well. It was one of our best cruises ever. Here's a couple more pictures for you to enjoy from Hawaii. You have to try the shave ice in Lahaina, Maui and don't forget to decorate your cabin door. Cheers - Ken & Darlene
  10. Hi Stan, nice to see your picture on here with Stanley the Bear! I will never forget our California Coastal cruise with you and your wife a few years back, great time! Cheers - Ken & Darlene
  11. Here's one more from our Hawaiian cruise on the Ruby Princess. We had a great "Meet & Greet". Cheers - Ken & Darlene
  12. What a nice way to share memorable cruise pictures with each other during these trying times with the virus lockdown. Thank you (richsea) for starting this thread, it's a nice break to see all the beautiful cruise pictures posted here and to share one or two of our own. I'd like to share this picture of the Ruby Princess docked next to the Aloha Tower in Honolulu last April during our Hawaiian cruise. It was one of our favorite cruises ever! Cheers - Ken & Darlene
  13. Still surviving here but the coronavirus is still on the grow in Wisconsin! My home town Kenosha, Wi has 24 cases and Milwaukee just 30 miles north of us has over 500 cases. Wisconsin as a whole has over 1,000 cases. We are hunkered down most of the day except for our morning walks. Getting some projects done around the house, rented a carpet cleaner and cleaned the carpets on Thursday. I miss watching the Brewers play baseball, opening day would had been yesterday at Miller Park. Hope everyone is doing there part to beat this virus sooner than later. Stay safe. Cheers - Ken & Darlene
  14. Received a check in the mail today from Bottom Line Technologies from our cruise on the Sky Princess for Feb. 8-22. It took 4 weeks to receive which wasn't bad. So I went to the credit union to deposit to just take a break from the house, doors were closed and they are only using the drive up windows. I suppose it's that way all over the country now with financial institutions. Darlene and I have been watching a lot of Turner Classic Movies on TV at night. Been recording them so we have them ready to go. Darlene has also been doing some baking, so the goodies go hand in hand while watching movies! Wednesday I'm planning to rent a carpet cleaner from our local hardware store. It's one project we wanted to get done this spring, so it's a good time to do it since we're hunkered down. The news has not been the best around here with the virus, Kenosha jumped from 5 to 10 cases and Milwaukee doubled up from 100 to 200 plus cases in two days. We don't plan to leave the house at all, except maybe for a few things from time to time at the grocery store. Stay positive and safe everyone, we will get through this! Cheers - Ken & Darlene
  15. Thanks for starting this thread. My wife and I have plenty of time on our hands being indoors all day as we are retired. We do take our morning walks to get some exercise. Fresh air really helps! We had to cancel our Las Vegas trip for April 1-4, easy decision. Just hoping we can start cruising sooner than later. We have the Ruby Princess booked out of Seattle for Sept. 26th and are keeping our fingers crossed. We are taking this coronavirus very seriously. Kenosha, Wi. where we are from has 5 confirmed cases. Milwaukee which is only 30 miles north of us has over a hundred cases with 4 deaths to date. With everyone doing their part we can over come this virus. God bless the medical personal and everyone in the fight to protect us. Stay safe cruise critic members. Cheers - Ken & Darlene
