  1. I agree - the crew was great and the passengers rolled with the changes very well!
  2. Just talked to one crew member. They are sending him home on 3/21. We didn’t get the letter but asked at Reception and they will send. We live in Florida, so this is less of a headache for us - our car is at the port. Most folks taking it all very well. But, I’m not sure what this accomplishes. The ship is incredibly clean. There is much more danger in my local Walmart.
  3. Sitting by pool on the Rivera now. Very empty. Kind of spooky.
  4. Right now - we're still going. The State Department warning about any cruise travel set us back a bit though.
  5. It does say 48 hours before departure in the email that I received: "If you are departing between March 10th and September 30th of this year, you may cancel up to 48 Hours prior to departure and we will issue a Future Cruise Credit for 100% value of the cruise fare you paid."
  6. Right - but that is the State Department and not the CDC. So, their perspective may be a bit different?
  7. Here's the link. It pretty well says to avoid cruise ships. https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/international-travel/before-you-go/travelers-with-special-considerations/cruise-ship-passengers.html?fbclid=IwAR23mRlu4-382HLuSM8i0KWQBSaZ4heDniggmxR3kBR6e2EgWiKr6B0EseM
  8. Here's the direct link. It pretty well says - don't cruise and we can't guarantee that we will get you home if you get stuck somewhere. We sail on the Rivera Wednesday and have not yet cancelled. https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/international-travel/before-you-go/travelers-with-special-considerations/cruise-ship-passengers.html?fbclid=IwAR23mRlu4-382HLuSM8i0KWQBSaZ4heDniggmxR3kBR6e2EgWiKr6B0EseM
  9. Now the U.S. State Department has issued this statement, "U.S. citizens, particularly travelers with underlying health conditions, should not travel by cruise ship." It goes on to say, "This entails avoiding crowded places, avoiding non-essential travel such as long plane trips, and especially avoiding embarking on cruise ships." Finally, "While the U.S. government has evacuated some cruise ship passengers in recent weeks, repatriation flights should not be relied upon as an option for U.S. citizens under the potential risk of quarantine by local authorities." We had planned to go on 3/11 but this is a pretty stark statement - stay off cruise ships. We still have until Monday afternoon to decide. https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/international-travel/before-you-go/travelers-with-special-considerations/cruise-ship-passengers.html?fbclid=IwAR23mRlu4-382HLuSM8i0KWQBSaZ4heDniggmxR3kBR6e2EgWiKr6B0EseM
  10. We're about 95% certain that we're going as well. Does anyone know what the upgrade chances might be when we check in?
  11. Wow - that is a lot of cancellations! We're on the same cruise and won't make the call until Monday. Right now, I'm leaning toward going.
