  1. You've been holding your breath since April/May, but the vast majority on these boards realised in August that it was a bust for 2020....stop dreaming! 😉
  2. I cannot do as you ask....but have noted the prior trail of responses, for your convenience. Following these through, it seems even clearer that the reference was to cruises resuming in the USofA. Incidentally, I did not state that the USA was referenced in bmwmans comment as you suggest!😉 Take care.
  3. bmwmans' first sentence is absolutely correct. His second sentence, which you have misconstrued intentionally or otherwise, is an opinion shared by many of us....that comment was clearly in relation to cruises commencing in the USofA, not Europe! 😉 Given that November is less than two weeks away, there is ZERO chance of a resumption of cruising from the USofA before 2021...hopefully a happy new year to all avid cruisers.
  4. Having sailed YC three times, I cannot recall anything in the YC area that could be described as 'kid friendly'.....other than the chocolate goodies and snacks! The pool is very small, and designed really for adults. That said, there is NOTHING to stop you taking a 4 year old and the YC crew will be more than welcoming towards a child....we have witnessed that, and interacted with the parents who said it was working well for them. As parents of 3 (now adult) children, we would not have chosen the YC with them.
  5. OTOH, many will opine you are being WAY too flippant! 😉
  6. Yes, big time.... and you need to factor in COVID-19 impact on debarkation! 😉
  7. They are less troublesome than some of the adults you might encounter!! 😉
  8. That's not what the OP said, see quote above, they will have their own cabin!
  9. All of that is correct, and def something for the OP to consider!
  10. IMHO, and my DWs opinion also, a resounding yes! We have sailed both inside and balcony equal times on many lines. On Meraviglia we have sailed YC on 2 occasions....once in an inside, and then a deluxe suite (balcony). Without a doubt, the deluxe suite is far superior to the inside....but we agreed that we'd always choose YC inside, rather than a non-YC balcony, because the YC experience is superb!
  11. Bermuda July 2021, on Oceania Insignia. Assuming it goes ahead, we shall continue only if we are free to self explore as we have four days there. No way will we be doing tours so, if that is the only way to get off the ship we will stay home.
  12. Yes, pre COVID-19 that was the way....not so under the new COVID-19 protocols.
  13. It is a problem, on Grandiosa they do NOT allow self disembark luggage (hand luggage, yes) as part of their COVID-19 restrictions....they disinfect all luggage leaving the ship, so that the cruise terminal area is not contaminated, and also your hand luggage as you leave. Makes perfect sense, if you think it through!
  14. That makes absolute sense, and will need to be factored in for flight timings!
