  1. I can see the necessity for doing Covid testing just prior to cruising, but carte blanche vaccination is another animal entirely. At risk individuals voluntarily getting the vaccine makes sense, but perfectly healthy people? Not so sure. How come medical doctors are reporting that this "spike" protein in the vaccine could compromise your body's immune system for protection from future viruses? If this is survivable, similar to flu or cold... shouldn't it be an optional vaccine? I think the fear of the unknown or what "could" happen has caused people to jump on the vaccine as the panacea for al
  2. Allure of the Seas, Transatlantic to Barcelona, March 1-13, 2020! Best Cruise EVER! And best plane ride back after 5 days in Barcelona and Montserrat!
  3. Thank you, twangster! I have a room on hold on both the Hawaii sailing and the first Glacier sailing in 2022. I was mulling over the obstructed balcony vs. regular balcony or even a virtual balcony. This is such helpful information for those of us trying to make a value decision. The last time we were on Ovation was the 13 night Glacier cruise two years ago. We had a deck 8 Accessible Junior spa suite which was converted from a Grand Suite. That was a great value for our family. But cruising solo changes the value ratio quite a bit! This will help make a more informed decision. Thanks again!
  4. Also, you can dine at these restaurants for lunch, if you choose.
  5. ... and how many people have to sail on a cruise to make it pay? Cruise Lines are not going to just sail without profit. So does a ship have to be at 50% to make money or is it more like 75% plus?
  6. I feel you were reading my mind! Lol! That was my exact answer...
  7. I should have said must be checked out by Sep 1... I have a September use year. The Cast Member put me on hold to talk to a supervisor first. So it's coming from at least one level up of management. Of course it could change by the end of the year, as anything. I was trying to lend my support to those thinking Disney may not be reopening in June.
  8. 15 hours ago, datolim said: We believe Parks' profitability will be impaired for a longer period of time given the lingering effects of the outbreak and now assume an opening date of Jan. 1 as our base case," Hodulik wrote. "That said, the economic recession plus the need for social distancing, new health precautions, the lack of travel and crowd aversion are likely to make this business less profitable until there is a widely available vaccine." https://www.msn.com/en-us/travel/news/when-will-disney-world-and-disneyland-reopen-one-analyst-predicts-it-may-not-be-until-
  9. Thanks for the heads up! Booked the TA and the week after on Harmony! Great deals. $387 pp double on Neighborhood Guaranty for Nov 14, 2021.
  10. I was on this cruise. It was very easy debarkation in Barcelona. Walked off no wait to get off ship. Relatively short wait at passport desk. Picked up my two bags and walked outside. I was actually surprised at how smooth it was. I think they started staggering the number of people they were letting on the elevators and escalators which caused the line to back up behind us. Stayed in Barcelona until March 17. Had a great time! Went around sightseeing. Toured Montserrat. Enjoyed dinner, breakfast and lunch in different cafes. Went to La Sagrada Familia. Purchased wine and a few gro
  11. Bring a square of vinyl drawer liner to place in the wire corner shelf where all your items fall over or through the slats. You can trip to fit when you get there. Or if you know the exact dimensions... cut to size before you travel.
  12. You should get an email from Royal UP! If you don't, you must wait to be within the 30 days. They are trying to make it seem exclusive and by invitation only, I think. Lol!
  13. I think it is possible that taking extra reserved seats can be considered hurting someone. There are one or two handicapped cutouts near the front of the theater stage plus a seat for a companion marked with a handicapped logo. We had a Star Class family take over those seats. They were not handicapped and there were so many of them that I wondered if they were all truly Star Class or just part of the family. They were not entirely happy that we wanted to put our daughter in the handicapped cutout right next to them, nor would they give up the companion seat. Our only other option was to put h
