  1. Father, after doing a quick Google Search I found their Offficial Site with regards to all of their Parks. Joanie https://www.nps.gov/aboutus/news/public-health-update.htm 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response The National Park Service is modifying its operations on a park-by-park basis in accordance with the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state and local public health authorities. While most facilities and events are closed or canceled, many of our outdoor spaces remain accessible to the public. Before visiting, please check with individual parks regarding changes to park operations. If you choose to visit a national park, please ensure that you follow CDC and state and local guidelines to prevent the spread of infectious diseases and practice Leave No Trace principles. Updates about the NPS response, including safety information, are posted on www.nps.gov/coronavirus.
  2. If we do have an Alaska season Father, it will not start before 1 July...... Joanie
  3. Just an FYI: Glacier Bay is only cruising. No walking just stay on the ship and enjoy:) Joanie
  4. I do not know how hard the "stone" is. Here is one of the written word sites: https://www.ktuu.com/content/news/Alaskan-destinations-among-National-Park-Services-delayed-openings-closures-568978331.html Joanie
  5. Also closed until 1 July are ALL National Parks in Alaska to include Glacier Bay and Denali. Joanie
  6. One and only cruise we took to Cazumel, Cabo etc., aboard Oosterdam in 2011, I started itching like crazy before we headed to San Diego. I had what appeared to be bites on my lower legs and ankles. Hubby had nothing (we do share a bed.) It was not until we were home and I realized that these were not BB bites as I'd suspected but Sand Fleas. Sand fleas are nearly invisible, though I did see a couple while I was lazing on my verandah. My Dr did say that it is almost impossible to tell the difference sometimes between bites of various insects.... Joanie
  7. Just read in Cruise Industry News QUOTE: "Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV) saw two of its ships, the Columbus and Vasco da Gama, meet some 12 nautical miles off the coast of Phuket, Thailand to undertake a unique passenger transfer and repatriation operation involving 239 passengers."

  8. Thanks KK. I felt the same way. I'm happy to have this thread!! Joanie
  9. Just saw this on Yahoo News. Awesome to see the Cambodian Premier shaking the hands of Westerdam Passengers as they came off the ship:) https://www.yahoo.com/news/video/cruise-passengers-took-cambodia-bus-204551389.html Joanie
  10. Since the post you've quoted, I have changed the font and color. I am now using Tahoma as the font at size 18, with the color being #000066. Sail, can you try again? I think you, as well as AlanF65 may have posted to a slightly older post:) The only thing I have left to change would be the size of the font. Joanie Joanie
  11. OUCH!!!!!!!!!!! OK, I've changed the color, and noted someone above posted my favorite font causes problems, and now that I can actually see what the problems are, let's see if this post is better. Edited: Thanks to all for their Screen Shots. What gets me on seeing them is the Font is NOT Comic Sans Serif, which is the font I have always used. I've chosen Tahoma for this post. Joanie
  12. Hmmmm...... Can you take a screen shot of one of my posts, such as this one? I cannot see any problems with the preview of all devices it shows (The final button up top right) I've tried a modified color of the one I've been using, so if it id the color then I fixed it. If not...... Joanie
  13. What I find funny is that a few booked passengers are upset that even though the ports of entry were closed by Government Agencies and have placed at least 2 cruise ships under full mandatory quarantine, they seem to not feel any anger at the airlines who have stopped all flights into and out of the same cities/ports. Take a breather people. Life is worth living, even if it means we quarantine a couple of cruise ships for a few days. EDITED: I hear no demands of the airlines to protect us from any airborne contaminants. Is it their job to do so or the cruise lines....I would like to see that, but they cannot. So all I can say is Deal With It as life continues on. Joanie
