  1. Do you happen to know why Eclipse might have gone into dry dock in Vancouver? This is the first I've heard of it.
  2. When did Eclipse move from being docked to being moored? Any idea?
  3. Yep. It makes no sense at all since Canadian ports are CLOSED to all cruise ships. I think that site is posting 'old' or faulty information.
  4. To me, this statement suggests that the passenger was indeed tested AFTER she was disembarked, as has been reported. There has been nothing written that reports any COVID-19 tests were available on board during the cruise. Thanks, Argo, for sharing this snippet of information from the source.
  5. As of one minute ago (Wed 04.01.20 0955) it's still showing docked in San Diego. https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/details/ships/shipid:289359/mmsi:249666000/imo:9404314/vessel:CELEBRITY_ECLIPSE
  6. Your post, of course, is simply asking people to post known validated information and to stop spreading hysteria, which I really agree with. There is SO MUCH misinformation being repeated by folks who THINK they know what they're talking about. Even some of those who were aboard the Eclipse are making assumptions, without facts in hand. Unfortunately the vagaries are starting at the very top of our political chain, with tons of misinformation, conjecture, and innuendo being spouted 24/7. Thanks for your post, tongue planted firmly in cheek, face straight or not.
  7. I was wondering. Hope I didn't come across as being critical. In any case, since you're booked for an April 20 sailing I will GUESS that Celebrity (aka X) will likely announce a new set of cancellations on or about the 10th, based on what happens with that pesky Covid creature in the next three weeks. Once X formally cancels the cruise then they should offer the 125% Future Cruise Credit OR 100% refund of all monies paid for the cancelled cruises, as is now happening. "Should", of course, being the operative term. It really depends on what the accounts say the cruise line (inclusive of all cruise lines) need to do to stay in business. The scary part is if X or other lines are forced into Chapter 7 or Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Then we ALL lose, some, if not all. of the money we have paid and there is little any of us can do about it. Sorry I waxed on. Things are slow around the Collins ranch these days and I find myself quite bored.
  8. All Canadian seaports are closed to cruise ships until July 1st, as of now. Border issues are very different and have nothing to do with port restrictions or closings.
  9. Maybe rent a car and drive back to Vancouver if you can't fly into your country? The border closures are in place but you would be allowed into your own country. Good luck with that. But, you still have ten days or so before you get back to San Diego, yes?
  10. I think I actually understand the question regarding borders, since Ontario Cruiser (OC) is probably out of Ontario (yes, I went out on the proverbial limb on that one). That said, if OC has to leave Canada and drive to New Jersey (Bayonne) to leave on a cruise the border crossing restrictions of today would likely not allow such travel, since it's for recreation and travel (non-essential). Of course, even worse than the border crossing issue is that of the Canadian ports being closed to cruise ships, maybe until July 1st. If those port restrictions aren't lifted the border crossing problem is moot, since OC couldn't catch a cruise anyway. I hope this makes sense.
  11. I found this for you to check out. Not sure, other than location, why the price would be more. https://www.cruisedeckplans.com/DP/deckplans/category-detail.php?c=2713 The big difference, from what I can see, is that the actual veranda is closed off by doors and you have to open them to go out. The Infinite Veranda is closed off by curtains and yes. only the top glass would open, leaving a safety obstruction with the bottom half. Also, the top glass can be closed by the bridge captain, if need be. I've not been in an Infinite Veranda, so I can't offer my opinion on it. Some folks really like it, others not so much. In any case you're in a Sky Suite and that, in and of itself, is very sweet.
  12. Very good point. I work part-time, seasonal, for a desert guiding company and our tours have all cancelled during what is normally the busiest part of the year. Thank goodness, for me, that I don't rely on the income to pay our mortgage. However, my boss is going nuts trying to figure out how her business can survive even two weeks without normal income, much less gratuities. Some of my guide associates rely on the income for their bread and butter.
  13. 2 much tim in the son, Den.
  14. So, I will assume you have a 'pen'chant for half & half, eh? Get it? 😎
