  1. OK Karen after this last one I'll bow out of here - HAPPY FATHERS DAY to all the fathers!
  2. Another example of POOR DESIGN Man with a cruise in August
  3. Our friends are owners also (dogs named Romeo and Juliet!) - I saw this sticker on an SUV in front of me in the drive through bank line and had to snap it for them 😃 "I TRIP OVER MY WIENER" (oops, probably offensive to someone here, if so, sorry!)

    Ugh sure do hate it for you, and hope that Disney pulls through. 🤔 It's not fair to expect anyone to wait when they are staring at a 50% penalty and DCL brings up "voluntary" to spin it like DCL might still wait - well, per CLIA's own PR statement they were speaking for their members who had already agreed to the suspension: “This voluntary suspension applies to all CLIA members to which the No Sail Order applied (vessels with capacity to carry 250 persons or more). CLIA member cruise lines will continually evaluate the evolving situation and make a determination as to whether a further extension is necessary.” https://cruising.org/news-and-research/press-room/2020/june/clia-announces-voluntary-suspension-of-cruise-operations-from-us-ports They really need to revisit their policies. Just keep trying! I looked back on the boards and found this posted back in March from a round of previous cancellations - I realize that the snip below is not the same situation as yours, but it shows they have done something nice for a cruiser in the past and maybe there is hope that they might go back and help you out. Good luck!

  7. Sorry I was able to see it so I didn't think about paywall. It's OT for this thread, but I know you feel for the crew and just wanted to be sure you read about it: Royal Caribbean’s payment vendor Wirecard reports $2.1 billion missing cash The company that Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. uses to process crew payments, Wirecard, said Thursday that auditors cannot locate $2.1 billion in cash on its balance sheet, raising concerns among cruise employees. The Munich, Germany-based fintech company has been plagued by allegations of financial mismanagement and wrongdoing for the last few years. On Thursday, Wirecard suspended its chief operating officer after announcing the $2.1 billion shortfall. Crew members who have Wirecard accounts use debit cards to access their Royal Caribbean paychecks and are worried their funds may be affected. Wirecard’s shares plummeted more than 60% Thursday.
  8. Wishing you a great cruise! JMO but I do think you'll make it! 😁 OT (not ACL) but I've been reading about the nickoVision (European) start up and have been waiting to hear how it went: https://www.cruisetradenews.com/first-european-river-cruise-resumes-sailings-post-coronavirus-recovery/ (BTW also I'm sure you already know this but the major lines have just announced a suspension until September 15 https://www.cnbc.com/2020/06/19/cruise-lines-voluntarily-suspend-all-trips-out-of-us-ports-until-sept-15-trade-group-says.html

    This info might make a difference in your situation - fingers crossed for you! Cruise Lines International Association, the leading trade organization for the global ocean-going cruise industry, says its member cruise lines have voluntarily extended the suspension of U.S. cruise operations until Sept. 15 amid coronavirus concerns. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention's current "no-sail order" is scheduled to expire on July 24, but no extension has yet been announced. CLIA's member lines carry 95% of the world's ocean-going cruisers. The new order will apply to all CLIA member ships that the current CDC order applies to – vessels that can carry 250 or more passengers. "Although we had hoped that cruise activity in the U.S. could resume as soon as possible after that date, it is increasingly clear that more time will be needed to resolve barriers to resumption in the United States," Bari Golin-Blaugrund, senior director for strategic communications told USA TODAY, noting the organization informed the CDC of its continued voluntary suspension. The extension comes with a caveat: The situation will be continually reevaluated as Sept. 15 approaches and the suspension may be extended further, Golin-Blaugrund explained. https://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/cruises/2020/06/19/us-cruise-ban-cruises-suspended-until-sept-15-industry-group-clia/3222379001/
