  1. Yes! This exactly. I will wait until the non mRNA vaccine is available and then re-evaluate my stance.
  2. Guess that rules us out. I have no intention of getting the "vaccine" and I fear for those who do.
  3. Bloggers with videos about the latest cruise news. So I guess they are vloggers. Either way, they are providing news about cruising. I guess I don't understand your point.
  4. Sign me up. Although I just watched a cruise news update with Ben & David and they said that Carnival, at least is considering a reservation system for all venues on board. You'd basically have to plan everything in advance. If all lines follow suit, then I'd pass. I cruise....eh hem, I mean I used to cruise so I don't have to plan...
  5. Exactly us! Pre-pandemic I would spend Saturday morning pouring over my favorite cruise deal watch sites with a cup of coffee. I'd find something interesting and then head over to Youtube to search for videos posted by previous travelers...then I'd scour the deck plans in search of the "best" stateroom. If everything looked ship-shape, I'd pitch the plan to my DH (which was just a formality, of course). I pray those days return, but until then there will be no more booking for us. Appreciate all the responses!
  6. Hi everyone, I've taken a serious break from most social media over the last several months but this morning found myself caught up in some reflective contemplation on the events of 2020. What a ride! My last cruise was February 29 and was the second to last before the shutdown. Like so many others, I've had several cruises cancelled since March including one that we booked for March 2021. When we made that booking back in July I was fairly confident that by March 2021, the pandemic woes of the cruise industry would be left in the wake of the Silhouette, my favorite cruise ship. Man
  7. Interesting question. My take is that short cruises are not meant to prove anything. Rather, they are meant to ease back into operations and provide both passengers and local governments an opportunity to test the waters. With so many precautions being angled to take place, the next and most obvious step is to try them out on real people. If, like you suggest, there is a case of Covid, then the next phase of the planned plan is subject to kick in. Perhaps the only thing it will prove is how well the best laid plans from the last several months will play out in real time. Paper plans can
  8. We were first introduced to the suite life on Royal in a Grand Suite. We liked it for the cocktail hour in the suite lounge and the larger accommodation. But then I heard that Celebrity offered suite class things like drink packages and additional OBC as well as a dedicated lounge and dining room, so we left for Celebrity and never looked back!
  9. Just did a search for any updates on the outcome of this meeting and found nothing. Anyone else have any luck?
  10. Ugg...makes me long for a cruise. I didn't watch the whole thing but I noticed it was a mixed bag when it came to those who were wearing masks outside. I also wonder what the passenger capacity was for this sailing. I prefer to cruise when masks and social distancing aren't required, so it will be a while. But it's nice to see operating ships and crew who I presume are happy to be back to work.
  11. I encountered a former student and their family while having a beer at a sidewalk cafe in the Las Ramblas market area. Royal Caribbean, Allure of the Seas out of Barcelona in 2015. What I learned? There's nowhere in the world where I can get a drink without looking over my shoulder. Thank Goodness I retired!
  12. Brilliant! You are exactly right. As more of this type of information becomes available, CC will need to start a post-covid travel tip page.
  13. Much as I would like to try Oceania in March, 2021, it's not looking good. Darn. Won't be making final payment in December...and I really wanted to try the Riviera.
