  1. Aw geeze. Is this really common -- does RCI know people outright lie to get these cabins?
  2. Chlorine Bleach. 🙂 Anyway back hand sanitizers, perhaps suggested use of sanitizer is for killing bacteria as opposed to viruses.
  3. Wow, this is a terrific itinerary. We did a British Isles cruise some years ago. We enjoyed it a lot but it was not near as extensive as your trip. Anyway, thanks for sharing. It sure brought back some good memories and makes us want to experience this itinerary again! PS: Additionally, thanks for the frequent paragraph breaks. Makes reading your review even more of a pleasure (for my tired old eyes). Haha Edit: Yikes! I just noticed the original date of the review. Doesn't make it any less enjoyable. Lol
  4. I might be with Sverige on this one. If I see something that I don't think I will like I won't be inclined to give it a try. For example, I hate eggplant. Folks will say, "Oh you should try mine. It is really good". Someone could make the best egg plant dish in the history of the world and I would not like it. Because it has egg plant and I don't like egg plant. Same with anything that uses mung beans. Hate them. Hate the smell of them. Okra & Rhubarb? Ick, bleh, pfssh. 😀😀😀
  5. Human ingenuity. I can imagine getting that banana was a pretty big deal, under the circumstances.
  6. Wow, that is an eye opener. I was surprised to read Japan has no infectious disease center. Double checked and it sure looks like Japan does in fact have such an agency. Sadly, if that is true, it kind of makes one wonder about the rest of the claims. But the comments about hospitality staff working instead of also being quarantined sure makes a mountain of sense. Thanks for sharing. Edit: Sorry. I just saw a previous post also questioning Japan's lack of a CDC-like agency. Sorry if it sounds like I was piling on. Not my intent at all, and as I said, the other comments sure make sense.
  7. Oh, Oops. Me too! 😀 Anyway, I hope the med authorities get a handle on this thing and we see it wind down.
  8. Huh, I've never experienced anything like that entering the UK.
  9. You hit the nail on the head. Both cruises in Asia they collected the passports when we boarded. Gave them back late in the cruise with all the necessary visa stamps. I think they have been collected a few times on Med itineraries too, but I can't recall where (Turkey, Adriatic?). I do recall way back when in Turkey we were given this half-slip form that indicated we were cruise ship passengers. We were told we had to have it with us while on shore.
