  1. This has to be quarters on a naval ship, probably an aircraft carrier.
  2. Not good. https://www.foxnews.com/travel/2-costa-cruise-ships-toward-florida-sick-crew-members
  3. November 2020. Here's the thing though, Covid 19 could disappear in the warm summer months but come back in flu season just like any other flu. It's imperative that a vaccine is found for this virus as soon as possible.
  4. We live in Sebring Florida halfway between Bradenton on the Gulf side and Fort Pierce on the Atlantic. So far no cases of the virus in Sebring or Highlands county. We live on a golf course and are members, it remains open but members are riding in their own golf carts instead of pairing up. No food and beverage in the clubhouse but the pro-shop remains open. No one puts their hand on the flag stick. I carry around a small bottle of Purell in the cart and use it quite often while playing, we don't shake hands after the round with our fellow competitors, just give each other the V sign. We made 2 grocery runs this past week standing in a line of about 50 waiting for the Walmart or Publix to open at 7AM, everyone in line stood at least 6 feet apart. We bought what we needed and were out of the store in 15 minutes. We have about 600 movies on DVD, never watched so many movies in one week like this past week, I really miss sports on TV especially Golf, Hockey and Baseball. Also miss dining out, we usually have 2 dinners and 1 breakfast a week here in town. I sort of lost my cool with a fellow golfer on Friday, this guy is sort of a goofball and is 61 years old which makes him a kid at our golf club. He loves playing the slots and gets quite a few free cruises. So on Friday this guy decides to drive over to the Hard Rock Casino in Tampa (90 miles) where there are Covid cases in the area, he had 150 dollars in free slot play and had to use it by 7AM. He left his home at 2:30AM and was back in time for his 8AM tee time but I got on him for taking a chance and possibly leading to infections here in Sebring, he giggled and said he took precautions, what a jerk. My own feeling is that this virus will be around for awhile and I can't imagine that there will be Cruise lines up and running in 30 to 60 days. I hope I'm wrong but I don't expect to cruise until the fall at the earliest.
  5. They did that to us for our 3/29 cruise on the Regal, the next day the cruise was cancelled when Princess ceased all operations.
  6. I've had sandwiches made at a station right next to the pre-made sandwiches, the pre- mades are pretty bad.
  7. Go Go White Sox, I'm a fan since 1952. As to your post, at this point all I'm hoping for at this time is for this virus to disappear sometime in the near future and the cruise lines will be up and running by the time your cruise comes around. There have been quite a bit of cost cutting by Holland America but all the other lines have also cut costs. HAL still is a good product with very good food, great service and IMHO the cleanest ships on the high seas.
  8. I would cancel, I hate to be party pooper but this virus is just starting out in the US and I don't see any kind of improvement in the near future. I'm hoping that it dies out in the summer months from heat and humidity and hopefully the lines will be sailing in the fall. I cancelled a cruise today with Celebrity for August 9th and lost 200 dollars out of 500 because it was a no refund deposit with the remaining 300 going to a future cruise before Dec. 1, 2021.
  9. THIS IS IN LARGE CASE BECAUSE I TALKED TO MY PCC's YESTERDAY AT PRINCESS AND HOLLAND AMERICA AND BOTH SAID THAT THEIR CRUISE LINES WOULD NEVER INSTITUTE A POLICY OF NEEDING A DOCTORS NOTE STATING THE PASSENGER WAS HEALTHY ENOUGH TO CRUISE. DID SOMETHING HAPPEN TODAY CONTRARY TO WHAT MY PCC's TOLD ME YESTERDAY.
  10. Can't prove you wrong but I will disagree on Holland America, IMHO HAL cruises have at least 50% over 70, one of my pastimes on cruises is people watching and I'm pretty sure on this one point. The longer the cruise, the older the crowd.
  11. I guess it depends on what line, certainly Holland American has way over 13% over 70s sailing with them, Princess and Celebrity maybe not quite 50%. RCCL, Carnival, MSC and NCL more like 13%. I have no way of knowing the actual figures but based on my 62 cruises I think I would be pretty close.
  12. I just talked to my PCC's with Princess and HAL, both said that their cruise line would never ever institute a program like needing a Doctors OK to travel on one of their ships, RCCL and Celebrity are pissing off a lot of people who make up a large portion of their clientele.
  13. My guess is once this crisis is over the notes will not be required. To me it's discrimination, I see plenty of 50 years on cruises in electric scooters and some very big people who need to lose some weight. The bigger question is when will this be over, the no sail for 30 days most of the lines have implemented is a joke, this virus is not going away in 30 days. My hope is that it will die off due to warmer weather in the summer months, flu viruses do not do well in the summer months.
