  1. So far this has gotten way off topic. It Is about the announcement being postponed until Monday not speculation about why it was postponed or speculating on the virus itself or the HAL ship. PLEASE, please stay on topic-- this is a difficult time for all and arguing and spreading misinformation don't help anything. There is a thread on Holland America re the Zaandam
  2. The booking is secure.....the agent is just that, an "agent", selling a product that happens to be a cruise...the booking is with the cruise line, tour operator, airline etc
  3. This thread is to discuss conditions where people live. I would not book anything before at least September but thats just me. Very unlikely any ship wiill sail in May. Here is link to a thread that may be helpful
  4. Glad you can get out!!! Azaleas out here, lovely and lots of pollen...We can go to grocer, drug store, doctor, take out and delivery from restaurants. Home Depot and Lowe's will be open and were packed today cause it will be good yard work weekend. Friends in healthcare can't even see grandkids but my neighbor is letting fiance and other daughters boyfriend visit..smh 😯😨 Y'all be careful now.....
  5. Our county goes on lock down Thursday at 8am for 3 weeks...grocers will be insane tomorrow! Sounds like a lot of you are in the same situation. Hope you'll stop by and let us know how you are doing and we have a fun Memory Lane thread going
  6. Found cruise card from my 1st cruise on the Commodore Caribe -- loved the ocean liners - and my name was my nickname aka "Caro" and they said it was okay because my name was right on the drivers license!! We were on two years in a row and both times the Shirelles were guest entertainers --- it was fun hanging out with them and their spouses and hearing all the great stories about Motown
  7. I'm glad to see you guys getting a break from all that is going on now BUT if it gets political, argumentative or snarky, it goes ...not gonna let this board get over run with these technically off topic to Carnival threads but I also know we all need to lighten up!!😊
  8. Where in western PA? Grew up in the Burgh but spent lots of time in Zelienople and Butler area with grandparents. stay well!
  9. ********* I'm not going to clean up the off topic posts on this thread until now but please use our new thread pinned at the top of this board created for just the discussion you have been having, i.e. How things are where you live
  10. I just saw that choreographer Debbie Allen is doing dance classes on Instagram! Looks like my dogs and I have new activity....you might want to check out her virtual studo?!
  11. I think this is the "new normal", certainly nothing like it in my 7 decades and unfortunately not going back to our "usual normal" in the near term . Here in Charlotte we are not on lockdown but it may come. some people aren't taking it serious enough. One friend who works in hospital near Asheville in quarantine. My son's bar here has big outdoor area that can't be used now either --small business and they are open 5 hours a day for beer, wine, soft drink and snack takeout and burgers and hot dogs to go from 5-7pm. They have no idea when they will get back to their house on Roatan but glad they changed air ticket 2 weeks ago or they would be there indefinitely. It's locked up tight, no flights at all.
  12. Since we are all one big community we thought it would be a great idea to start a thread on each form so that our members can have a place to socialize during this time of social distancing or "stay in place" that we are all doing. Cruise Critic is a community and now is the time that we need to be able to socialize and show support for one another. All we ask is that you please show respect and kindness to each other and please also keep ALL politics off of this thread no matter where you live. Everyone is frustrated and stressed but I know as a host I would like to know how you are doing. Best wishes and good health to all of you. Be kind to each other. Carolyn

  14. The original Mardi Gras in the early 80s I think......I do remember vividly meeting some nice guys from Canada. Pat and I were in an empty bar on a rainy afternoon playing the piano and singing all these ballads and people kept coming in putting dollar bills in the regular guy's tip glass.
  15. ****** We will now resume out regular programming, i.e. the offer to use Carnival ships as temporary hospitals ******
  16. Ordering mixed drinks to go here as well in NC. 😁 Just not designer, Alchemy Bar type drinks
  17. I With so much of the country and so many ports on lockdown and businesses closed I don't see how cruises could start up again for at least a month after the virus peaks....and who knows how long on that will be. I tend to be optimistic by nature but wondered when cruises were halted why it wasn't at least late May.
  18. Lots of reviews on this section on Carnival ships. https://www.cruisecritic.com/reviews/
  19. Yeah!!!!😃😃😁😁 A positive, fun thread, much needed today. Please please let's keep it this way or the wrath of the ghosts of Fun Ships past will descend upon you😮😮, First thing I will do......a perfect pins colada ....🍹🍹🍹(close...)
  20. ******* see pinned threads, one for UK and one for US cruisers**** since policies etc appear different and posts sometimes hard to follow.....hope this helps
  21. To discuss bookings, cancellations etc. relating to US market
  22. To share information and discuss booking and other questions pertinent to MSC operations and policies in UK
