  3. I grew up on the Mississippi & have always been a water baby... I grew up in Dubuque, where our bluffs & sheer cliffs rise high above the river. There are pictures of me on the river as a baby. However, my earliest memories of being out in the boat & on the river, are from when I was 2, with our family, friends & neighbors. Being on the water is one of my happy places 🙂 When you can bring the mountains down to the water, I am truly happy 🙂 I started going to camp as a 5-year old, as did my friends & family... Camp songs tend to stick with you & we still spring into spontaneous camp songs, when we are together & sometimes even on the telephone. Reading through so many of these posts, one song that repeatedly springs to mind is... Barges, I would like to go with you, I would like to sail the ocean blue. Barges, have you treasures in your hold? Do you fight with pirates brave and bold? Out of my window looking in the night, I can see the barges flickering light. Starboard showing green and port is glowing red, I can see the barges from my bed. Barges, I would like to go with you, I would like to sail the ocean blue. Barges, have you treasures in your hold? Do you fight with pirates brave and bold? How my heart longs to sail away with you, As you sail across the ocean blue. But I must stay here, beside my river view, As the barges sail away from here. Barges, I would like to go with you, I would like to sail the ocean blue. Barges, have you treasures in your hold? Do you fight with pirates brave and bold? Out of my window looking in the night I can see the barges flickering light. Taking their cargo out into the sea, How I wish that someday they'd take me. Barges, I would like to go with you, I would like to sail the ocean blue. Barges, have you treasures in your hold? Do you fight with pirates brave and bold? Out of my window looking in the night, I can see the barges flickering light. Silently flows the river to the sea, As the barges go by silently. Barges, I would like to go with you, I would like to sail the ocean blue. Barges, have you treasures in your hold? Do you fight with pirates brave and bold? Out of my window looking in the night, I can see the barges flickering light. Anchors start to pull and engines start to roar, As the barges pull away from shore. Barges, I would like to go with you, I would like to sail the ocean blue. Barges, have you treasures in your hold? Do you fight with pirates brave and bold? Out of my window looking in the night, I can see the barges flickering light. Stars are brightly lighting up the sky, As the barges seem to skip right by. Barges, I would like to go with you, I would like to sail the ocean blue. Barges, have you treasures in your hold? Do you fight with pirates brave and bold? How my heart wants to sail away with you, As you sail across the ocean blue. But I must stay beside my window clear, As the barges sail away from here. Barges, I would like to go with you, I would like to sail the ocean blue. Barges, have you treasures in your hold? Do you fight with pirates brave and bold?
  4. We have an annual policy as well. We actually cancelled, due to surgery & have not yet reached out to them - as officially Celebrity is offering compensation of some form. Now that I'm recovering - I will reach out to talk with them. According to Celebrity - we should be receiving full refund for Airfare, Taxes & Fees. We had originally been quoted 7-10 business days & have not yet reached out to Celebrity to check again, knowing everyone else is calling. Our reservation was removed from our Trip Planner last week or the week before, I'd have to look @ my notes. I thought that was a good sign for processing - but still have not seen a credit on our credit card...
  5. I think once the extreme crisis is over & there is a plentiful supply of the antibody tests - we'll see many people lining up to verify their suspicions they had been exposed to it earlier on... If only they could verify if there is immunity, if you've already had it & built up the anitbodies!
  6. We've seen nothing yet for 03/15/20 Eclipse. Not for the Airline Tickets Nor the Taxes / Fees Nor the FCC
  7. Oops didn’t mean to make it sad… We don’t currently have any cruises booked to look forward to... But many others do & we are certainly looking for new ones! Cheers to all… Enjoy your countdown to your next Cruises! Happy cruising
  8. We’ve been following them. Some were already part of our roll call, as they were to be on our cruise as well. Others joined for the conversation - while they were sailing North to San Diego... With many of the posts - it felt like we were there with them. We wish them all a speedy, safe & healthy trip home!
  9. Very Happy to See You All Made it Safe & Sound... Sad we weren't able to board on the 15th... Glad they took care of you, especially those of you who had not planned on this leg of the cruise! Adding a little salt to the wound... A short while ago, my calendar sent me a reminder to let me know I could check in for our flight home, from San Diego to Anchorage tomorrow night... In other words, Johnny & I should have gotten off our the cruise this morning... Celebrity Eclipse - 03/15/20 - Santiago, Chile to San Diego, CA... We Wish You All Safe & Healthy Travels on-wards to your homes! Cheers -- Von & John
  10. Greenpea... Such a Great Finale to your Review!!! Sorry you had challenges posting on Board - but you've powered through since!!! Fantabulous Photo! You may want to switch it out for your CC Photo... I know the Villa was not in your original plans - but I could see myself grabbing a quick shower - getting rid of the sand... Did they stock your fridge w/ fruit, veggies or drinks by any chance? So Happy for you & Sistah to have such an amazing time together... It's been an eternity since the last Von Bond - you may have inspired us 🙂 Such a fantastic positive return to CC... Cheers -- Von & John
  11. Adding a little salt to the wound... A short while ago, my calendar sent me a reminder to let me know I could check in for our flight home, from San Diego to Anchorage tomorrow night... In other words, Johnny & I should have gotten off our the cruise this morning... Celebrity Eclipse - 03/15/20 - Santiago, Chile to San Diego, CA... Celebrity cancelled our cruise on the afternoon of 03/14/20. The good news: the peeps not allowed off the ship on 03/15/20 - made it to San Diego to disembark today. They'd been on the ship for their cruise & ours... Many had been on much longer. Additional good news: they hadn't been to a port in 15+ days and they were all healthy!!! We wish them all Safe & Healthy Travels on-wards to their homes! Cheers -- Von & John
  12. Unfortunately the article is hidden behind a pay wall... Do you have a simple synopsis of the article? Or is this the same as what was posted on the HAL Blog?
  13. I recall that episode... Thanks for the memory! And, I hope something similar works on this occasion...
