Jan - We did the Alaska to Tokyo (different cruiseline ... sorry) last September. Great, interesting cruise ... but, yes, that one-way air was a "killer".😬

Im using miles for either business or first so shouldnt be too bad, cant believe at my age I booked so far ahead.

LOL

Who knows what will happen  a year from now  😎

YES if some Countries cannot  conform to the protocols now  they may well be locked out of enjoying the rest of the World in the next year or more

I mean the rules the ship will have.  I don't want to travel in a bubble with a small pre-assigned group, be told when and who to eat with and some of the other rules they intend to impose.  I don't mind masks and social distancing, but I don't view a cruise as a school!

We miss sailing as it was, not sure we will miss what future sailing may hold.

I guess only time will tell.  We sure are not thinking of sailing at the beginning.  Want to see how the first few months go and then we will think about it.  I know there will be many post here on CC that will give all of us the answers we want and need to make up our minds.  Hope it is soon.

Skip ANA their Bus class seats and rock hard on a LAX-Tokyo  plus their Tokyo  terminal feels like it is in Okinawa......

If you have the miles, my recommendations is Singapore First suite (or business) - direct flight, ANA First or Japan First or business.

You can get Singapore awards only with their miles (from Chase Ultimate awards or Citi Thank you)).

I am with you!  Looking into land trips now.

We've done three in the last three months in our rv. All in CA/OR/WA. With Hairy Red Dog. Had a great time and will be doing at least one more before year end. I wish Canada was open to us.

A year ago we were in Paris, not only do I miss sailing I miss traveling. 

 

Agree, I am on a Staycation, which when you were already working from home sucks even more (I know, a first world problem).

 

We did however make it to Paris......Ontario......

Just to rub it in my calendar popped up a notice today that I have a 5am flight to Vancouver tomorrow. Yeah, that ain't happening. Was headed out on a TP to Honolulu.

Yeah - I've had a few of those as well as reminders for final payment, specialty reservations, etc

Hey, gas is cheap and so are the hotels..... you got a car...use it   So far I have been AZ, UT, CO, WY, MT, SD, NV and planning NM... plenty of options away from the masses and risk and good open restaurants too

It is a big country  It is yours to explore or not.  Time spent locked up is neither good for your mental health or future..... You only have so much time in life.... do not waste it... there are no refunds or rewinds

You know that I frequently disagree with you 🙂 But 100% on this. GET OUT! We've only covered NorCal, OR and WA coasts mostly as we hate the heat. But it's been great. We have a small motor home as well as a small dog 🙂 We even stayed in an EV park in South San Francisco and had a couple of outstanding lunches in the city.
