  3. The latest from St. Kitts - ST. KITTS & NEVIS PHASED APPROACH TO RESUME SOCIAL & ECONOMIC ACTIVITIES Effective Friday, June 12, 2020, the Prime Minister of St. Kitts & Nevis Dr. the Hon. Timothy Harris announced that, under the new SR&O No. 25 of 2020, Government will be introducing new regulations. Effective Saturday, June 13, 2020 through Saturday, June 27, 2020, the new regulations are part of the process of gradually relaxing restrictions and reintroducing the Federation to more economic and social activity. The Prime Minister announced: • Saturdays through Sundays, nightly curfews will be in effect from 12:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. The shorter nightly curfews will facilitate nightly religious services with the same protocols already established for daytime services. • Beaches will now be open from 5:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily for the purpose of exercise. • The suspension of retail liquor licenses has been removed and bars can open in compliance with physical distancing measures. • Restaurants can open for in-dining in compliance with physical distancing measures, maximum per table allocations and appropriate sanitization programs. • Restaurant patrons are required to wear masks on arrival except when eating and drinking. The borders of St. Kitts & Nevis remain closed to commercial traffic by air and sea to prevent and/or delay the possibility of importing new cases of COVID-19 to the Federation. A coordinated effort is being made with regional and international partners to determine the opportune time at which to open the borders. The continuing relaxation of restrictions is being implemented at the recommendations of the Chief Medical Officer, the Medical Chief of Staff and medical experts. Based on their advice, the Federation has successfully flattened the curve. On May 18, it was announced that all 15 confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 in the Federation have successfully recovered and there have been 0 deaths to date. As of Wednesday, June 10, a total of 417 persons have been sampled and tested for COVID-19, 15 of whom tested positive with 402 persons tested negative and 0 test results pending. 13 persons are currently quarantined in a government facility while 0 persons are quarantined at home and 0 persons are in isolation. A total of 829 persons have been released from quarantine. St. Kitts & Nevis has one of the highest testing rates in CARICOM and the Eastern Caribbean and uses only the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test which is the gold standard of testing. The Federation was the last country in the Americas to confirm a case of the virus and among the first to report all cases having recovered with no deaths. Click here to read the Emergency Powers (COVID-19) Regulations as part of the Government's response to contain and control the spread of COVID-19. The Government continues to act under the counsel of its medical experts, who advised that St. Kitts & Nevis has met the 6 criteria established by the World Health Organization (WHO) for doing so and that all persons who need to be tested have been tested at this time. At this time we hope everyone, and their families remain safe and healthy.
  4. People trying to compare pricing of two cruises by spending hours and hours assigning an arbitrary value to every minor element of cruising...and then thinking they’ve reached a valid conclusion that everyone else should agree with! 🤔
  5. Between airlines, cruise lines and country restrictions, 2020 cruising is dead except for Carnival’s ill-advised attempt to get off a few Caribbean cruises.
  6. Good call, flashfearless!! $600million at 14%. 😳🤞
  7. A short summary: 930 pax no casino no kids no photographers no art auctions no junk sales in the common areas no charge for beer/wine at lunch/dinner $20 per day beverage package (includes tips!) no charge for alternative restaurants no charge for wifi no charge for launderettes no charge to enter spa no formal nights no art auctions no nickel and diming well-travelled, sophisticated, unpretentious fellow passengers
  8. Magic Kingdom capacity is believed to be 100,000. At 65,000, they begin phase 1 non-entries to limit the number of people in the park, so I’d guess 50,000 would produce plenty of profit.
  9. Disney World capacity at all parks is supposedly 330k. Sorry, but 165k doesn’t seem very empty to me...
  10. We got a single refund notice originally, but had no trouble re-booking with both credits recently. We think it was just an issue with processing the sheer volume of refund/voucher requests.
  11. Interesting how they use a marketing spin to book these balconies as Priva-Sea...
