  1. In our part of SC many things are going back to normal. We have 10,000 residents in our county. So far, 7 cases of which 6 were on a Princess cruise together. The county high school has announced they are going to have a graduation ceremony. There are only about 750 students in K to 12, so maybe 50 to 70 graduates. It will be held in the football stadium. Each graduate gets 2 tickets. Guests will need masks and must space out. Names will be called and each one will walk across the stage. No handshake and nothing handed out. But, I’m very happy they will have a ceremony.
  2. Thanks, I was hesitant to admit I didn’t get it!
  3. We were excited to see a real, live soccer match this morning. Even if they weren’t our favorite teams, it made things seem a little more normal. Now if only the EPL would start back up!
  4. The county I live in has 11,000 people. 7 have been diagnosed with Covid 19., but 6 of those contracted it on a Princess cruise.
  5. A clarification please. Cruise was with DH and 2 adult sons. Son from California isn’t sure he wants to go next time. The original fare was about $8,000. Rounding, it was split $3,000 for me and DH and $1,000 for sons. The 125% gives us $3,750 for DH and me and $1,250 for sons. If Cali son doesn’t cruise we would lose his $1,250, but still be ahead $750. Can we book the three of us? You are such a nice person to take the time to answer all our questions. Thanks!
  6. I just got a refund from a Hilton prepaid reservation before our May 17 Galveston cruise. Between the time I booked and prepaid and now, we had a fraud issue and got a replacement card with a new number. Credit went through with no issues. If changing number doesn’t matter, then I would be surprised if changed expiration date matters. BTW, kudos to Hilton for the refund of a non refundable room. I also cancelled Delta flights and that is still pending. Waiting for FCC from RC, but it’s not a rush, so I can wait patiently. Curious to see how it is split. The four of us were in the villa suite. I’m hoping it isn’t split evenly, but split based on each person’s cost.
  7. One local restaurant is offering a roll of TP with each take out order.
  8. What I heard about refrigerating eggs. The USDA requires eggs to be washed. That removes some type of coating that normally stops bacteria. So, without the coating eggs must be refrigerated. I won’t stake my reputation on this, but heard it on a Food Network show.
  9. Our county in SC has had 6 cases, all from a group on a Princess cruise. We have been able to get take out food, but no restaurant dining inside or outside. Grocery stores have a reasonable selection of everything but TP. I may not get the brand I usually buy, but most things are available. Our weather has been fantastic! We feel like Mother Nature is compensating for the lockdown.
  10. Just received the rest of the refund on my credit card. Less than a month, I’m happy. Now just waiting on Hilton and Delta for refunds and FCC from RC.
  11. I cancelled the cruise planner purchases on 3/31. Received part of them 4/16. Still nothing on the rest. Chops dinner was refunded, Sabor and Giovanni’s wasn’t. Liberty on 5/17 cancelled by RC last week. So I’m not sure there is any rhyme or reason to when the refund comes.
  12. This reminds me of our first cruise on NCL’s Southward in 1979. Food was great and service wonderful, even for lowly interior cabin passengers. But boy did it take a lot of luggage for a week! Main dining room was your only option with set times and large tables.
  13. Our local grocery was sold out of yeast from people baking their own bread. I’ve been baking bread for over 50 years. I’m happy to think that at least a few of these new bakers will keep it up. I also wonder about how it will change the way many offices work. In 1996 when the Olympics came to Atlanta, most offices went to a more casual dress code. After they were done, the dress stayed more casual. Office managers found out that it improves morale and didn’t hurt productivity. Will this crisis change the way people work? I’m retired, so it doesn’t matter to me.
  14. We like the Oasis better, it seems roomier when the curtain is open. Since it is only the two of us, having a separation isn’t important. Harmony seemed darker and a little claustrophobic. If we were sharing with a third person, Harmony would be better.
  15. Yes, there’s a curtain across the whole area.
