  1. According to today’s episode of cruise radio podcast, NCL On March 31 until at least June is reducing all shoreside employees to a 4 day workweek and a 20% pay cut, and also looking to temporarily discontinue the employer 401k match, and are borrowing 1.55B from revolving creditors. I’ve lost a significant amount of respect for this company. It just leaves a bad taste in my mouth, but it’s a business.
  2. I am still not too hopeful for a Mediterranean sailing season in June, but we shall see.
  3. Love these photos! The Edge looks beautiful. Praying for a miracle and I get to sail in the Apex.
  4. Barcelona to Rome. I have a feeling it’s not going to happen, but we will see.
  5. we are still holding out for our June sailing on the Apex.
  6. I’m still holding out for my June Mediterranean cruise. I think it will die down by then.
  7. This is great news, but I’m still debating on whether to wait or not. We are flying in to Barcelona June 18 and leave out of Rome June 18. Any thoughts on to wait or not? i think it has to be rescheduled with the same cities.
  8. A lot can happen in a few weeks, but I have not seen any progress updates on the Apex. It should just about be complete, right? I’m not sailing until June, but I’m dying to see some shots.
  9. Apex should be debuting soon. We have the pride at sea sailing for June of this year bikes. Fingers crosses this illness settles down by then.
  10. I don’t think we will be doing our apex Mediterranean. Understandable, but I feel like Europe is not meant to be. Last trip I had was London and Paris in 2004, but the bombings in London happened right before our trip and it was a high alert then, now this. it did cross my mind of maybe just switching to cruise Norway, but our airfare won’t be so flexible for changing. May just be a regional beach trip somewhere this summer.
  11. We are just waiting on American Airlines, since we booked a non-refundable flight to Barcelona and leaving out of Rome. We don’t sail until June 20, so I imagine they are just taking it month to month. It’s very reassuring to know Celebrity is being pro-active. I suppose anything could happen from now until June, but we have anticipated a postponement to visiting Europe.
  12. I have the apex booked for June 20 sailing and it seems like the airlines and cruise industry are both doing a future credit. I’m not going to be surprised if this just may be pushed back until next year if both give us a future credit. America airlines see. To have it so it has to be the exact same stops or another flight that is equal to or less than the amount for them to cover.
  13. Yup. We travel June 20 from Barcelona to Rome. I won’t start worrying until the beginning of June.
  14. We are on the next sailing. I’m still not too concerned. A lot can happen in a short amount of time.
  15. We have a Mediterranean cruise booked for the end of June and have full intentions of going. I think, like the flu, cases will start to drop off once the weather warms up.
