  1. Thank you for the speedy reply. So, it's wait and see for now.
  2. We aren't cruising until March of 2022 and haven't paid in full yet. If I understand the procedure for applying for exemption correctly, the members of our family who will be applying for exemption can't do so until two things happen: the cruise is paid in full and the email with the exemption form is sent, which won't happen until the cruised is paid up. Is that correct?
  3. How glad I am to see this thread. We're in a very similar situation with having booked 2 Havana class rooms for our family of 5. My eldest son is not going to be able to join us as I suspected would happen when I booked the trip, so I listed him as the 3rd passenger in his stateroom. I came to the same conclusion about not calling to cancel him. It's barely worth it financially.
  4. I'm helping our friends plan their first cruise, and it would be very helpful to be able to share the Daily with them from a 7-day Norse Legends cruise or at the very least any Daily of a 7-day European itinerary. Can anyone here help me out? Thanks in advance!
  5. In the past, I always bought the bare-bones trip insurance policy when we cruised. Typically, our cruises have been 7-day Caribbean itineraries that included a balcony stateroom for dh and me and an interior stateroom for the 3 growing kids, an excursion at ports of call, 2 nights in a hotel, and sometimes air fare from BWI to Florida; usually we drive. For these trips I've purchased policies based on a total trip cost of around $7000.00. The most I paid for a policy was $201.00. All three kids are independent adults now, and even though we've cruised several times with one o
  6. I am so sorry for you guys who were supposed to sail in June. If this is the first time you have been Covid-Canceled, welcome to our unhappy not-so-little club.
  7. Oh, snap! Two days. Been there. We missed being able to sail last year by a day.
  8. March 2022 on the Vista. The upside of our cruise plans getting cancelled 3 times in 2020 is that we have even more to celebrate in March of 2022 than we did in the spring of 2020. Two college graduations instead of one, several hundred dollars in OBC instead of none, and the youngest in the family will have just turned 21.
  9. My favorite coctail was a plain old Greyhound until I had one at a friend's house and he threw some tropical fruit in the glass with the vodka and grapefruit juice. I really liked it. In fact, It's my new favorite. I'm wondering if this concoction has a different name. If not, what are the chances that I could get a Greyhound with a fruit medly in the glass onboard when we cruise?
  10. I wish my canceled May cruise wasn't still showing up on my Cruise Management page. Does anyone know how to remove it other than waiting until Carnival removes it from its end. I haven't been able to do it myself so far.
  11. 😞 Sorry for your grandson and his parents. You're a nice grandpop.
  12. Glass half-full here or at least not completely empty. Our May, 2021 cruise was to be a graduation present for two of my children, who both graduated from college last year. Well, they both got jobs, one started in January and the other started last week, so neither would be able to go on vacation in May anyway. Dh and I were going to go without them, so it's a bummer for us, but at least we're off the hook for cancellations fees for the two kids.
  13. Thanks for the update. I hadn't check the website (or other online booking options) in at least 24 hours, so this is a new development for me. You think the "Oh, Snap!" will come tomorrow, maybe? As much as I don't want May cruises to be cancelled-since we are booked on one- we all know it's coming. Let's just get it over with!
  14. Maybe, why don't you post a poll? Seems like a good question.
