  1. I am assuming they are holding out hope that other countries might follow the lead of Greece. I am guessing the is unlikely at this point. We are booked in mid June but I am not holding my breath.
  2. Well...who knows what it will actually be but tomorrow could be something interesting. https://www.*****.com/2021/03/16/royal-caribbean-teases-update-coming-the-news-weve-all-been-waiting
  3. We are supposed to be sailing on the Infinity from Venice the same day and noticed that check in was available. Guess that means that final payment was due. We were supposed go to Bermuda last summer but when that was cancelled we took the FCC and then booked this one. It more than covered the new cruise so we didn’t have a final payment. We are doubtful it will sail, but also doubtful that we will be able to get into Europe. Just waiting to see what will happen.
  4. I wasn’t sure how that might apply to a cruise that sails but I am choosing not to go one now. Maybe there is nothing to worry about. I certainly hope that is the case. 🙂
  5. Thanks everyone. And just to be clear. We are expecting it to be canceled. I do have this lagging fear that some how the cruise will go but with not less than desirable conditions, however unlikely that might be, and we wont be able to back out. But really I was just asking cause I haven’t seen anything and wanted to make sure that I hadn’t missed it.
  6. Just wondering if anyone has heard anything about cruises in June in Europe. We used FCC from a cruise that was supposed to be last summer and were hoping by June this year things would be better. Right now we are not certain if it sails if we want to be on it, but also not certain about foreign travel even being possible. I will not be surprised to see it get cancelled, but I havent seen anything yet. Like I said, just wondering and dreaming about being on a real COVID free vacation.
  7. Thanks Hank. Yeah, not book yet, just excitedly waiting for the flights to start coming available. I love to travel and planning travel is a sort of hobby of mine. Probably wont buy for another six months unless I see really good flight deals and also probably not before a ban on US citizens entering Europe is lifted. But that is good advice and I am only booking things that I can cancel right now.
  8. Well there are a few things at least I am considering. I have never flown into Venice and only once domestically into Rome. I didnt know if there might be better choices between the airports. I was also generally interested where people found the best pricing to be, knowing that nothing is guaranteed to be the same. Why? I also am just curious about what others done and hearing the experiences of others. Also our vacation for this year was supposed to be a cruise in a week that obviously had to be canceled, and I really understand why, but we are still disappointed. I am trying to channel
  9. We are booked next June on a cruise starting in Venice and ending at Civitavecchia (Rome). Flights are coming available now and I was just wondering what others recommend or have done. We are not planning to do anything outside of the cruise other than flying in a day early. Last time we were in Italy we flew in and out of Milan and then took the train to Venice and to Florence and then Rome. So the question is would you fly in and out of Rome, in and out of Venice, fly into Venice and out of Rome, or something else?
  10. Yes I have seen that, but so far it looks like it is a voluntary move by RCCL and from what I understand no other cruiseline has followed suit. But it also wouldn't be the end of the world for that change to happen. We spent the start of our honeymoon in Venice a few years ago and would likely still plan an overnight in Venice before boarding the ship. As for the age. In a weird way I am looking forward to it. I spent about 5 months living on the Millennium and so going on Infinity has a nostalgia quality to me.
  11. So we are like a lot of folks looking at cruises because we are getting the 125% FCC for our canceled cruise that was supposed to be at the end of July this year. We are looking at the June 2021 to take a the Venice to Rome cruise on Infinity. Anyone have thoughts about the ports Venice, Split, Corfu, Kotor, and Naples. I used to work for Celebrity so I went a lot of places but of these, I have only been to Venice and Naples. Any thoughts about this by those who have done something similar?
  12. Right now this is where we are with our cruise. We are booked on the Summit to Bermuda at the end of July. Hoping it sails but preparing for it to not sail.
  13. I wonder how long things will continue like this. We dont sail until July and the ship is still mostly full. Only aqua class has a substantial number of staterooms remaining.
  14. What I find challenging with this new advisory is that it does not include a reassess date. As in “for those scheduled to be cruising between now and July 1 we recommend not traveling” The way it is worded one could read a 2021 cruise should be cancelled. Part of the reason I am thinking about it is that I am cruising at the end of July. I am not sure they are recommending we cancel, but the recommendation is not very precise or clear.
  15. My experience was that typically, no matter how many or how few, 50% of the kids onboard will not participate. Anytime school is in session that means a lot more individualized experience.
