  1. I seriously doubt it will open up by then. As of right now, the only port accepting visitors is Puerto Rico and they are very strict about having had a test before you can enter. The CDC has not said that cruising can start again. The crews are still scattered all over the world. I would be surprised if our February 20, 2021 cruise sails. (She is supposed to resume cruising on February 6th, 2021.)
  2. They talk about reduced capacity yet now they have opened up the Mardi Gras for more bookings when she first sets sail. They have said for quite a while that it was sold out for those dates.
  3. I'm not looking for connecting cabins. I'm looking for cabins with connecting balconies. They will only open the dividers if the balconies connect. (Meaning that it won't obstruct one of the doors.) It looks like in all of the pictures that I've seen that instead of windows and doors, there are sliding glass doors. I asked our PVP if both panels will open and he said that there is a rumor that they will but he couldn't confirm it. If both do, that means that every divider could be opened.
  4. Unless I'm missing something, cruisedeckplans.com doesn't show it either. I know that if there is cabins that connect by an inside room, that the divider cannot be opened. Ours and Brothers are not set up that way.
  5. I know that the deck plans are published but it doesn't tell which balcony cabins connect to which balcony cabins so that you can have the divider opened. Someone that has access to goccl might have an updated version of it. The last one I saw was Mary 28, 2019 and it just says "Information not available at this time". I'm sure by now they should know which opens to which.
  6. 1. Does anyone know if they have finally said which balcony cabins connect to which balcony cabins? 2. Does anyone know where the smoking sections will be?
  7. Same here. At least at home I don't have to wear a mask all day.
  8. Mine was always on the Destiny. They made them smaller after the Destiny Class.
  9. I can't imagine how many people are in the same predicament that you are in. So many flights and hotels booked that now don't match up with their cruises or time frames. That and vacations where people have to put in a year in advance for the time off. What a mess! Hopefully things will work out for you.
  10. We are finding it very hard to be optimistic that our Feb 20th Mardi Gras cruise will even happen. Even if the ship is completed by then, will there be any ports open to ships? Will they have the same stipulations that Puerto Rico has put into effect? If that's the case, it won't be worth getting off of the ship. https://www.cnn.com/travel/article/puerto-rico-require-visitors-covid-19-results/index.html It's hard to even think about making reservations for flights and hotels at this point. Will the CDC even allow cruising by then? I hate playing the "Wait and See" game.
  11. Another set-back for Michigan. Bars had been opened for the past couple of weeks. Our numbers climbed considerably. Our Governor declared that bars could now be take out only. The only time we drink alcohol is on a cruise so it doesn't affect us. My first thought was why would anyone buy alcohol from a bar to take home. It's a lot cheaper to buy a 12 pack or a pint from a grocery or liquor store. I can't imagine someone going to a bar and taking home a martini in a Styrofoam cup.
  12. We booked the Mardi Gras for February 20th right when they first started taking bookings on her. Now we have doubts that it will even sail with the virus seeming to get worse instead of better. That and if cruising even does start back up again, what will the changes to cruising be like? Will the ports even be allowing ships to come in by then? At this point, who knows what the future holds?
  13. That depends on personal circumstances. Age, physical conditions, people not wanting to tie up their money for an extended period. There are many reasons to cancel rather than re-book not knowing when it will be safe to cruise will start again.
  14. Thank you. We love cruising but we love living even more. 🤣
