  1. We have a $900.00 MSC shipboard credit. How can we spend that?
  2. That is a great question. I'm going to post it separately.
  3. We have a very large shipboard credit to use on our next sailing. We are staying in the YC where I was told the concierge could arrange for private tours. Does anyone know if it would be possible to use the MSC shipboard credit for specially arranged tours?
  4. Looking to take a cruise excursion that includes a private beach cabana at Chankanaak Park. Has anyone done this? If so, did you enjoy your day? How far were you from the beach and pool?
  5. Since Covid-19 doesn't care if you are here legally or not, I would hope that everyone residing in the United States receives the shots when they are eligible. We are all in this together and every shot in the arm helps us to defeat the virus.
  6. 50 percent of all those over the age of 65 have already had at least one vaccine shot in the United States. In the State of Virginia, most people over 65 in my town, have received at least one shot and many have completed their dosage. The state allowed those over 65 to make appointments on the 13th of January. Our state vaccinated those over 75, people in nursing homes and residential settings got the shots first. Teachers, medical workers, essential workers and those over 65 are currently eligible in Virginia. Unfortunately, when the vaccination system was set up, it should have been a u
  7. We have been to Ocean Cay twice. The first time we were "regular" passengers in Aurora Class and the second visit we were in the Yacht Club area. On our first visit we had decided to take the tram to one of the further out beaches. There are several different beaches and they are marked. There is even one designated for the crew. Several of the beaches cater to families. We headed out over the bridge past the Yacht Club area to a more secluded beach. There are beach bars everywhere. I strongly suggest setting up near one if you are a thirsty beacher. We did rent umbrellas on the path
  8. We have booked three cruises and two land vacations in the last month. We are vaccinated and raring to go. Our first trip is scheduled for September 25th. Just hoping that the new varients don't ruin our plans.
  9. If you don't get the code to punch in until after the video, it would force passengers to watch. This makes so much more sense than the previous drill process. By the time the staff got to the third language, no one was paying attention. By watching a video, folks could listen without distranction.
  10. Virginia is now giving shots to those 65 and older, teachers, essential workers and continuing with health care workers. 13.3 percent of the states population is now vaccinnated and we are finally moving along nicely. We were able to see our grandaughter last night for the first time in four months as our second shots are now effective. I finally see the possibility that we will get back to normal sooner rather than later.
  11. I wonder if anyone knows how MSC is handling onboard passenger safety drills on their sailings currently operating in Europe. The drills have always been my least favorite part of cruising. It would be wonderful if Covid forced changes to the drill proceedures.
  12. How do you volunteer to go on a trial sailing?
  13. I would definately do that. It can be challenging to spend all that credit.
