  1. While I agree that we need to move forward and manage the situation as best we can, I do not agree that where it originated does not matter. IMO, it matters a great deal. That information could very well help us prevent future calamities originating from the same place. We also need to know how it originated....the specifics about its origin.
  2. It would be nice to be looking forward to a cruise again soon. The longer the restrictions of the pandemic persist, the more difficult it is to stay positive...about a lot of things. I do volunteer work in the library bookstore, read books by the dozen, paint, ride my bike every morning at 6am for several miles....and do it all while thinking how nice it would be having breakfast at sea on the balcony of a HAL ship. Tough times.......but still very thankful.
  3. Thank you for your garden pictures. Your flowers are really pretty. They should make you feel proud.
  4. Lots of emails from HAL. Almost none from Celebrity. I ignore them all.
  5. Fine ship. Will be missed by many of us who enjoyed her over the years.
  6. For me, she was the quintessential definition of an elegant ship. Really beautiful and great fun to sail on.
  7. Great picture. Those were the days.....
  8. Don't quite know what you mean, but I also enjoy going off on my own. I don't like being herded around. I don't consider that breaking the rules. Just would not want to cruise without that sort of freedom. Apologize if I misunderstood you.
  9. Great pictures. Wonderful stories. Thanks for bringing this super thread back to life. Sailed first in 1965 or 6 from Miami to Nassau on a three or four day cruise. Don't remember the ship. Later on the Emerald Seas from Eastern Steamship line, again to the Bahamas. Then came early Carnival ships and NCL and Royal Caribbean. Special memories from the magnificent Norway.....Great Ship. Discovered HAL later with the first HAL sailing on the older Noordam. Worked our way up to four star and pretty much left the others behind. We really like HAL, but worry about what she might become in the future.
  10. Great picture. I sincerely hope you make it. We all need a break.
  11. I share your frustration about the sometimes "mystery" of the food stations. We have often found ourselves going all over both sides of the lido restaurant trying to sort out what was available and where....not fun when the place is full of people scrambling around. I know this sounds kind of silly to some, but we thought it would have been better if there had been a bit of order to the situation. In the great scheme of things, a small matter.
  12. Not surprised to see this issue come up for discussion. I hope you can get your cash refund. It may be many months before any cruises, especially longer ones, are available from HAL.
