  1. Yeah, but the waiver should be that the cruise line is not liable for ANY problems related to covid, including: 1. Quarantine in state room for any amount of cruise 2. Being infected and getting sick( no free treatment or transportation from ship) 3. Missing any/all ports No reimbursement, no future credit, no free care, no transportation, etc. Absolutely no compensation at all. You board the cruise and if any, or all of these things happen, you lose all your money. Do you actually think people would do that? Maybe, but the way everyone always wants
  2. I think you either have a excursion booked and leave with the group. Otherwise, no leaving the ship at all. You will probably not be allowed to physically scan your card and leave. Because once they let you off the ship, anything can happen......at least that's what I think.
  3. I don't see how they can "control" who the excursion takers are exposed to. Yes, the bus driver and guide probably will be tested. But there are so many activities that they cannot control. Restaurants(will it be closed to the public for the whole day), museums, trains, cultural experiences (farm visits, etc) I just don't see how it can even come close to controlling the environment except as someone mentioned above.....riding a bus, looking out the window. Never, ever, ever would I go on a cruise like this.
  4. We mailed a card and it arrived for my sons birthday 7 months later!
  5. Happy Travels! I have been looking for a similar site like CC for RVer's, have you found any?
  6. My "virus" awareness started in January. I had an Asian cruise, plus a 2 month land tour booked starting in Hong Kong on Feb. 1. When things started to heat up in Mid January in Asia, I was really aware of the impact this virus would have on the world. I had done research on pathogens in college and was shocked to see the images from China on social media. People dropping dead in the street, spraying of disinfectants on sidewalks, building hospitals in a week. I was not going to step foot on a plane or a ship, so we cancelled our cruise. It was the HAL cruise that never docke
  7. They got credit to their credit card( so cash) I think. I will ask again to be sure. I don't want to give wrong information.
  8. Good luck. I have been back and forth with our travel insurance. Be sure they will pay if cancelled or bankrupt. I paid a premium price for the insurance and they are literally making me jump through hoops to get the money I am owed. Oh well, I have the time for all the hoop jumping they want. Be prepared. It is not like the old days of making claims on your insurance that's for sure.
  9. My friends had their cruise cancelled by Viking and got their refund in a week. Not sure why they and their friends got theirs back so soon, but they did.
  10. We bought an RV with our yearly cruise budget! No more cruises for us for a very, very long time.
  11. Where are you seeing free inside cabins?
  12. yep! Even if there was some way to social distance on the tender to the port, imagine coming back? How would that be done? time slots? They will probably start selling tender tickets, kind of like specialty dining. Only those willing to pay can go ashore!! Same with any excursions. How would it be on a bus? What about coming back on board at a port? There is always a line. Tape on the pier? I just can't see cruising the way it was before 2020. Sadly, it will never be the same.
  13. The theater on Caribbean Princess can only hold about 600 people. The ship holds up to 3200. So, on the cruise to Greenland last year, there were lines an hour ahead of the show. If you wanted a seat together, you had to be there about an hour early. It was a mess and there were always many, many mad people. No fun and no way to "social distance".
  14. I know. I am truly surprised that people are even thinking of cruising at that time.
  15. We were on the Greenland cruise in 2019, got it for $700 each interior, wait until the last minute, especially at this uncertain time. Having said that, and this is partially joking and partially serious..........we think we got a version of coronavirus on that cruise!! We have never been so sick(80% of the passengers were sick coughing by the end). We were sick for 2 months after the cruise. My husband and I jokingly say that we cruise passengers brought the infection from Greenland!! Despite numerous visits to the doctor after the cruise, there was no diagnosis.
