  1. Those stairs to the tender were interesting; I’ve gone down stairs to get to the platform but never ones over the water! Thank you for the blog! I’m glad I saved it to enjoy during this lonnnnng time without cruising.
  2. I give my own December cruise a 5% chance of happening at this point. Florida is one of the worst states hit, and already Princess has canceled cruises through 12/15. I foresee cruise lines canceling all 2020 cruises. I hope I’m wrong, though!
  3. That’s very exciting news IF they sail healthily! 🤞 It’s hard to imagine there won’t be any cases after the small ships all having them, but one can hope!
  4. We have had many fantastic Princess excursions over the years, but we have also had many fantastic independent tours and DIY explorations. Our intent going into each cruise is to be able to choose what we see and visit in each port. If Princess has the perfect excursion, we go with that, but there have been plenty of times they haven’t offered what we were seeking. I know this would be a deal breaker for my hubby for most cruises if they implement this. 😏
  5. Yes, Christmas offers regular Princess options as well as traditional Christmas offerings like turkey, ham, and an assortment of European Christmas desserts.
  6. Thank you for sharing that article. I couldn’t get it to load yesterday without subscribing but was able to read it with your link. It seems like these test cruises will provide some good insight for cruise lines to learn how to better restart here when it’s safer.
  7. Awesome blog! It was so nice to be taken back to the days of actual cruising!
  8. The right side is definitely the best; you’ll have the water on your side til you cut inland. For a day in Anchorage, I’d recommend one of the following: 1) walk around downtown, take the free shuttle to the zoo, free shuttle to the Alaska Native Heritage Center, do the trolley tour, have a reindeer dog at Tia’s stand for lunch, and have awesome seafood at Simon and Seaforts or Glacier Brewhouse for dinner 2) rent a car and drive to Palmer/Wasilla to visit the reindeer farm to feed and pet reindeer and feed moose, meet a musher and his sled dogs a short drive past Palmer/Wasilla, and see some beautiful mountain scenery enroute Happy planning!
  9. Oh my goodness!! 😩 It certainly doesn’t bode well for our big ships when the first few small ships can’t even sail without an infection.
  10. I’d love to close my eyes and dream of flying to St. Maarten today! Unfortunately, I feel it’s far too risky to fly right now, and we’d have 3 long flights to reach the island. Plus, I foresee Americans spreading the virus there as incoming tourists have done here in AK.
  11. 17 days aboard the brand new Regal Princess in June of 2014...pure magic of new ports all over the Med, amazing food that was locally sourced, and the best onboard entertainment of any cruise we’ve taken!
  12. This is awful. It’s just gonna make cruises take longer to return in the U.S. This was a small set of crew and pax, and it still happened. I reallllllly hate to admit it, but perhaps the virus is too virulent to risk cruises for a while. 😔
