  1. If someone is denied boarding, do they get a refund? I hope we will make our Nov cruise, and I’m okay with wearing a mask, getting tested, etc. But it is going to be hard to sell my DH on this. He hates wearing a mask, although he does it.
  2. Next cruise: Allure Nov 15, 2020 Next I think will cruise: Oasis March 2021 Most disappointing if canceled: Allure in Nov. Scheduled to be our 1st on Allure & 1st CLS. We have a CLS in March, but our next 3 cruises will be on Oasis, so it will be 2 years before we MIGHT be booked on Allure again.
  3. We are booked to be on Allure Nov 15. I am willing to wear a mask to get on board, but my DH is not happy about that. Our adult son said he is willing to sacrifice the time to go with me! 😜 If cancelled, we will be disappointed but okay. I really hope to go, though.
  4. Our sailing is the very next one after transatlantic. If that is already canceled ours will probably be also. 😢
  5. Friday we made the final payment for our mid-November cruise on Allure. We know there’s a good chance it will be canceled, but if somehow it does sail and we are not onboard we would be very disappointed.
  6. I’m so sorry about your cat! We lost a beloved dog to kidney failure last Dec. We didn’t even know she had kidney disease until November.
  7. We are also having a hard time dealing with continued pandemic restrictions, canceled cruises, social unrest. We spent many years saving money, doing without extras so we could enjoy the lifestyle we now have. I am aware how very lucky we are. But it’s still hard dealing with so much change and restrictions. I’m retired and DH works from home. You would think we see enough of each other, but he actually works 10+ hrs a day, 6 days a week. When we are on a cruise we are totally focused on each other. This is important time for us. Yes, we may need to find an alternative; but we don’t want to.
  8. It’s a much smaller area on Freedom, no hot tub or cabanas. I thought it was still very nice. Comfy seats and tables, some in shade, some in sun. I actually took a nap out there one day. Very true! I think I misunderstood the question. I forgot about the tiered area as we found it too hot and preferred the Solarium or our own balcony on the preAmped Freedom.
  9. We were lucky enough to be on Freedom’s only (thank you Covid 19) sailing after amplification. There is a new, beautiful suite lounge and outside seating area on deck 14. You can access the area from the exterior with your sea pass card.
  10. I am really hoping we will be on our Nov sailing. I am anxious to see what protocols the cruise industry puts in place when they reopen. They are extremely invested in having a safe way to restart cruising. That doesn’t mean I don’t understand how serious this virus is. Looking forward to getting back to a favorite part of life doesn’t make me reckless or uncaring. We have followed the guidelines, including not seeing our granddaughter for months, and will continue to do everything we can to help stop the spread.
  11. I really enjoyed watching this! DH and I were on this cruise and had a great time. The corona rainbow in Aruba was amazing! Then again, maybe it was a warning. 😉
  12. Yes, there’s usually a little bit of Jana in each blanket! 😜
  13. Thanks! She needs a bath, which she will get this weekend. 🐶💦
  14. I’ve been crocheting a blanket for Baby Girl Wasky coming this July. She will be our second granddaughter! Jana seems to think I’m making the blanket for her. 😉
