  1. I would love to see NCL start using Charleston as a cruise embarkation port. I know the locals don't like the ships being based there, but it sure makes it easier for those living in the mid-South. Two hour drive for me vs 7 hours to Miami.
  2. Thanks! I had not seen this and was just going by what the national press was saying. I did not know that each state was proposing their own plans with different definitions of "at risk", including the differences in age groups.
  3. NCL is pushing that bankruptcy can down the road again. NCLH To Release More Stock
  4. Speaking to the highlighted sentence above, you have to put this "minimal amount of time" into context. When Dr. Jonas Salk developed the polio vaccine, the effort took approximately four years and was worked on by a relatively small team at the University of Pittsburgh. At that time, most of the calculations, etc. that had to be performed were done on slide rules, paper, or very basic computers that could perform a few hundred calculations per second. Flash forward to 2020, and we have literally tens of thousands of scientists all over the world working with supercomputers that perform up
  5. I wish the US was following the UK's lead on prioritization. I have at least two conditions that the CDC lists as high risk, plus I am almost 62, but based on what I have seen here, I will fall after the 20-year-olds and 30year-olds. 😲
  6. Pfizer approval to be sought very soon. If the FDA gives the vaccine the green light, Pfizer will likely make history as the first company with an FDA-authorized COVID-19 vaccine. It has plans to start delivering millions of doses of the potentially lifesaving vaccine to the most vulnerable overnight once the government gives a green light, possibly before the end of 2020, the company said. Pfizer To Seek Authorization Within Days
  7. Encore doing laps again. Wonder if it feels like NASCAR?? "Make a left turn, make another left turn, make another left turn". 🤣
  8. My biggest issue with these US plans is they cut off the "elderly" at 65 plus. I am just a couple of years short of that and have two conditions that the CDC defines as "underlying medical conditions". Yet, under the proposed plan, I will receive the vaccine after my perfectly healthy 30-year-old daughter, 28-year-old son, and 3-year-old granddaughter. How does this make any sense at all? I do have a letter from back in March that my employer gave everyone in our company that states that we could travel during the shut down because we are essential workers. Would this bump me up to Ph
  9. I just tried. First time, I filtered to specific months and came up blank. Second time I removed all filters and came up with over 2,000 cruises. I then was able to filter.
  10. And this lovely news too. Democrats-call-for-cdc-to-place-temporary-halt-on-passenger-cruises
