  1. The Rocky Mountain Explorer train sounds appealing.
  2. I wonder how long it will take Celebrity to cancel/reschedule the affected cruises? I’m on Solstice from Vancouver 9/18/2020 to Hawai’i. and final payment is due 6/20/2020.
  3. https://dbedt.hawaii.gov/blog/20-09/ And before anybody comes up with ‘you know what happens when you assume’ this is from the State of Hawai’i. I figure they do have some insight into the matter of the affairs of their own state.
  4. They require masks to board the flight. They are then allowed to take them off. https://www.dallasnews.com/business/airlines/2020/05/13/airlines-are-telling-crews-not-to-crack-down-on-passengers-without-face-masks/ “ Airlines are telling their crews not to enforce face mask rules once customers are on board and planes leave airport gates. Fort Worth-based American Airlines is instructing crews that “once on board and off the gate, the face covering policy will become more lenient.” “The flight attendant’s role is informational, not enforcement, with respect to the face covering policy,” American said in the note to crew members. Dallas-based Southwest Airlines “will not deny boarding based solely upon a customer not wearing a mask; however, we will request that customers comply with the policy out of respect for the well-being of other customers and our employees during these unprecedented times,” spokesman Brian Parrish said in a statement. Others, such as United, said they will only deny passengers boarding as a “last resort.” Delta is also asking flight attendants to de-escalate conflicts with passengers that refuse to wear face masks, but won’t divert flights for that reason alone.”
  5. I’m sure it is, prior to CV-19 you folks had me very excited about my cruise. It sounds like the employees on the ship do a remarkable job, but they sure don’t get the necessary support from corporate.
  6. I’ve never stepped on board a Celebrity ship, our September sailing was to be our first, but our TA thought we’d be a good fit for the cruise line and we’d enjoy ourselves. I will say that I’m finding it difficult to cut some slack to celebrity when their patterns apparently is to hoard other people’s money. Prior to the pandemic I was having difficulty with the X website, and many on this board informed me that the X IT left much to be desired. I believe this lack of investment is biting them now in crisis. If I were the management team, I’d send out an email/letter to all stakeholder (those with money in their accounts) and say “We are swamped with this unprecedented event. We only have X amount of people working on refunds, so that’s why it’s taking so long” But what I’m wondering is if they just prioritize all new bookings, and if there is time left over at the end of a shift they can process a couple of refunds. The way this company has been operating doesn’t feel honorable, but it’s predictable for big business. I just don’t see myself giving RCL any money ever again after this ordeal.
  7. This last group of cancellations was for a longer stretch of time (7 weeks vs. 4 weeks) so at least Celebrity was a tad more proactive this time. I just have a hard time believing they’ll start a summer cruise season for 6-7 sailings.
  8. Two things: Are these same issues happening with RCLs other lines? And has anybody contacted the consumer division of their State Attorney General if they feel they’ve been dealt with dishonestly?
  9. To every problem there is a solution.
  10. I hope your state doesn’t regret these choices.
  11. I posted this in another post, but this article: https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/northwest/washington-states-once-bustling-border-towns-and-islands-fall-silent-due-to-coronavirus-pandemic/ Had this quote. B.C. has 67% of Washington’s population, but only 14% of the Covid-19 deaths. I don’t think my cousins in Vancouver are that anxious for me to pop in and visit anytime soon.
