  1. Currently 3 booked. First is next April, then a TA on Legend next fall, spring cruise 2021. Unless the DCD succeeds in destroying the industry altogether.
  2. Pool in my back yard. Still looking for a steel drum band and someone to bring me drinks though...
  3. I don't sail again until next spring (I moved my cancelled cruises to next year to be safe), but I hope Carnival is still sailing at reduced capacity then. I was worried that Carnival would fully book every cruise and then have to decide who could go and who could not. That would have been a disaster. Can you imagine of they cancel your cruise, then ask you to have faith in them and re-book instead of taking the refund, and you do, but then they tell you you can't go anyway? Something like that would have been last straw for me. It's a trust issue for me. I know some things are out of their control but if I book with them, I would expect them to honor it and sail. I have continued to book cruises, and even bought stock in CCL, because I trust the company to be able to survive this shutdown. If they start doing things like over booking just to cancel, I would have a hard time trusting them. On the BRIGHT side, It would be very nice to sail on a ship that is at 60% capacity a few times!
  4. Some of these ships are 30 years old, or close to it. I think a couple of them were set to be laid up or sold anyway. They must cost a fortune to maintain. That said, I know a lot of us have special place in our hearts for the smaller ships. One of the best cruises I have had was back on the Imagination, and it could be one of the ships they are looking at. Ironically, these bigger ships they have now will not be able to sail at full capacity for a while anyway.
  5. That makes as much sense as anything. Obviously they won't be able to sail at 100% for a while, and I was worried they would take full bookings then have to decide who could go and who can not.
  6. I'm Booked for April. I think you will be ok. Do you have specific concerns of just the COVID stuff?
  7. Sunrise. The re-build was a disaster. They packed in a bunch of staterooms to increase capacity, but they made the common areas practically unusable. Serenity area was the worst in the fleet, and if you were not up there guarding a spot by 9 AM you could forget about getting in. Lido area just added a bunch of tables. You are sitting right up against the person at the table behind you, like touching them. The area to walk past the burger and Mexican food stands is the same spot where the people waiting for food have to stand, so you can't get past them and you have to go up a deck and over. It sucked.

  9. Love the pictures, really cool. First cruise was on the Valor when it was still brand new. I fell in love with the experience immediately. My first wife did not. My current wife loves cruising hahaha.
  10. I WILL BE BACK! My wife and I have cruises scheduled for next year and we will be there. No doubt about it. I need my cruises and I have already waited too long.
  11. Thank you for that comparison. I was thinking of trying Celebrity as well. Did you find less kids on Celebrity?
  12. Hard to say without knowing what you are actually looking for. The Vista class ships are great IMO, and I sail without kids as well. I LOVE the Havana cabins, no kids under 12 and the area is like your own little neighborhood for the entire cruise. I actually have one booked on Horizon for next spring.
  13. People with petty complaints: I'M NEVER cruising Carnival again! Carnival: Hold my beer...
