  1. Back on topic please......protesters and politics have nothing to do with Carnival
  2. There are a variety of reasons why a port can get changed as you are aware. Booking a cruise based solely on one port of call is taking a chance. Is it a tender port, no one knows what situation with corona will be, etc. Just something to consider before final payment.....p
  3. Cruise Critic guidelines do not allow members to recommend or post contact information for travel agents, personal vacation planners etc. They also do not allow one to ask members to email them for contact information. Hope this clarifies this for you.. Host Carolyn
  4. Are you looking at Carnival or private tours? Especially from Cozumel with ferry involved and distance I would really check out private tour operator folks because you need to ensure they get you back in time.....And also post on the Cozumel and Progreso ports of call boards to hopefully get some first hand recommendations. https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/456-caribbean/
  5. Welcome to cruise critic and the crazy world of cruising and Covid. This particular thread was sent up as a place where people can talk about what's happening in their hometown, with their family etc, more infected non-cruise -related discussions If you will start a new topic on the Carnival board called something like "August 2020 on the Magic" you will be able to get more input and perhaps find others in the same situation in early August.

  6. They just had first case of covid-19 this weekend despite lockdown which had just been eased. Lock down again. Island may not open for cruise ships till late fall. My son has home there, no idea when they can go back, were hoping July but now doubt it
  7. I saw this. It's awful.. More than anyone should have to bear at one time. Our cases are spiking just as we are "opening up" gradually but people are out everywhere doing their thing and no masks etc.
  8. This has gone so far off topic, again debating stats from different sources. As we all know you can get a different set of stats pretty much site for site depending on what you want to hear. The status of states with homeports will affect cruise departures but arguing and debating statistics is not Carnival related. So if we can stay on topic re how social distancing on a cruise will affect cruising on Carnival, will leave for those who have an expressed an interest in discussing that topic.
  9. But testing is up a lot too. At the daily press briefing they stress how many more tests are being done.....and then there's the Tyson plant with 555 cases
  10. North Carolina where I live and several other states going up. Our numbers here have trended up at higher rate last 10 days than at any time so far
  11. Here is a link to the roll calls for the Carnival Magic. If your date isn't listed you can create one here as well https://boards.cruisecritic.com/forum/491-carnival-magic-roll-calls/
  12. Mardi Gras...1988, I think with a friend from work. 3 nights from Miami to Nassau. I loved the ocean liners!
  13. Butterbean, is this the letter you are referring to??? A letter linked in another post looks like same info?? I don't want to clean it up till I know it this is the right one since one post says "wrong letter"??
  14. This above thread has numerous smaller threads merged into it. I go through regularly to try to merge general threads on refunds into this as well as merging questions re FCC and OBC into that larger thread. Try to strike a balance between merging general topics but leaving some with more specific questions and situations. Can't please all the people all of the time so try for a simple majority part of the time. Been hosting here since late 1990s and this has always been challenging keeping threads sorted out!
  15. My son lives there and can't go back to Roatan till probably mid summer...they were here when everything began shutting down. Will have to be tested here then quarantine there. But no cases there so it's worked so far, some cases on mainland
  16. As of the middle of.last week Roatan had no cases! On very tight lockdown. Some cases on mainland though. Western Caribbean itineraries will be "interesting".
  17. You also have to take itineraries as a sort of mystery cruise at this point as Roatan and many other islands have not yet decided when cruise ships can return and restrictions such as masks, temp checks etc they will require. So what itinerary is listed now is really tentative except private islands
  18. Beautiful pictures! Be glad you went when you did! May be next year before any ships call in Roatan. On complete lockdown and even property owners off island probably won't go back till late summer
  19. This isn't specifically Carnival related but I hope you will comment on the Carnival excursions that you do pay for as well as others. During this weird time of no cruises, I'm trying to strike a balance between Carnival related threads and those that just relate to cruising where we can hopefully have good discussions without any politics or disparaging remarks ----in another words just hanging out as if we were on the ship sitting around the bar with a couple of drinks talking about what we like to do in different ports
  20. No problem......definitely subject to interpretation. 😁
  21. There used to be excursions from Seward that departed in the morning and returned early afternoon which would get you to the ship on time. The embarkation time is not a suggested time
