  1. March 9 is when we moved our April 2020 cruise. Haven’t received a refund for FTTF or the two shore excursions yet. Guess I’ll give it the full 90 days before I attempt to call customer service.
  2. Oh that’s good news.... we’ll see what happens!
  3. Cool idea Sid, always great to escape and take a trip with you, even if that trip has already happened!
  4. Vaccines are made with dead viruses. This journalist gonna make a big deal about that too?
  5. Italy, Spain, and I’m afraid Finland... doesn’t matter where, I think it’s all going to be affected. Just waiting on word from Carnival while I research other cruises. We booked a Jan 2021 Mardi Gras cruise because our April 2020 cruise on the Breeze was a no-go. Wouldn’t be surprised if we had to re-reschedule this one.
  6. Radiance is in Spain, but they’re closed. Already cancelled her first 4 European sailings also.
  7. I noticed the Jan 2021 (and later) sailings not appearing anymore and initially chalked it up to thousands and thousands of folks re-booking due to this mess. Then I thought... what if they have to halt construction because of this? It’s certainly a mess with no good solutions. As an aside, I’m now researching other cruises in the event we have to re-schedule again. I just read an article, posted yesterday, that the Carnival Radiance’s transformation has been officially postponed. She’s at dry dock in Spain. It was supposed to be a 38 day job, and now the first 4 European sailings have been cancelled. After reading that, I assume Mardi Gras is having the same issue. Guess we’ll know by Friday! I know it’s a silly thing to stress about... but we really needed our April cruise (big move, two career changes) to de-stress. Neither of us have a lot of flexibility with our careers, and I don’t think anyone is able to book an interim vacation right now anyways (land or sea) to make up for our April cruise. So we reluctantly pushed it out to Jan 2021. I think we could most likely book an Oct-Dec 2020 cruise somewhere... but then again, what if this mess continues and disrupts those also?
  8. We booked a Jan 2021 sailing because our April 2020 Breeze cruise got caught up in this mess. Gonna be real upset if this one has to get rescheduled too!
  9. Howdy! We just booked this cruise! We were scheduled to leave April 25 of this year on the Breeze. We decided to cancel, not because of a fear of getting sick, but the fear of being quarantined for days on end, which we can’t afford to do with our careers. We were eagerly counting down to the days, but now our count has jumped back up. Our anniversary cruise now turned into a birthday cruise (for both of us) on a brand new ship! We were in a spa balcony on the Breeze, and now we are booked in a spa cove balcony for this trip. Odd that the spa is on deck 5, but it’ll be ok!
  10. Thanks for the kind words! We are bummed... but it’s ok! We are looking at doing a short land vacation to make up for it. But we re-booked on the brand new Mardi Gras for Jan 16... which is right in the middle of both our birthdays and will be a nice break after all the holiday craziness. Hopefully the Mardi Gras won’t face any more delays and we won’t have to reschedule that one too!
  11. I just cancelled our April 25 cruise on the Breeze. I’m not at all scared of the virus, I think the hype is ridiculous and harmful. My wife and I are in our mid 30s and mostly in good shape. That said... both of us are in careers where we could not risk getting quarantined for any length of time due to this whole mess. Also, we were scheduled to be in Grand Turk the day of our 5 year anniversary, and would have been pretty sad if we were turned away (and yes, I know that could happen anyways without this virus mess). I called, sat on hold about 90 minutes, and then had everything switched to our new cruise in about half an hour. She applied the FCC while on the phone and then credited us for what we had already paid to the April cruise. Done and done.
  12. It’s important to actually READ that article. While sad, the decedent already had underlying health conditions. Also, there’s this... “It's important to remember," Azar said, "for the vast majority of individuals who contract the novel coronavirus, they will experience mild to moderate symptoms, and their treatment will be to remain at home, treating their symptoms, the way they would a severe cold, or the flu.” This is no different than the flu. Everyone needs to relax. Corona has been around a long time, this is just a new strain.... again, just like the flu.
  13. Thanks, Tandem! We decided we’re going to alternate vacations. So this year, it’s a cruise for our anniversary. We are planning a DC trip next year, then another cruise after that. I’d like to cruise every year, but.... happy wife, happy life!
  14. This is our 5th anniversary.... wow, 50! Any tips for making it that far (other than lots of cruises!)
  15. Thanks! This will be only our second cruise. Our very first was with NCL on the Spirit in 2016 in an oceanview cabin. She’s old and small, but we didn’t know that at the time lol. We didn’t really do any research for that cruise, we knew where we wanted to visit and that was the ship that kind of checked the boxes. But we loved it and had an absolute blast! For this Carnival cruise, we knew we wanted to go to Grand Turk, and we wanted to do it on our anniversary, which meant booking the Breeze. I splurged and got us the spa balcony without telling my wife (she knows now). It wasn’t until after we booked that I started doing research on the Breeze and realized that the NCL Spirit sure is old and boring! Haha. We are super excited! We don’t mind a party, but I think being able to escape to our balcony and spend some time in the spa area is really going to allow us to relax and enjoy!
