  1. We're starting to see all the different cruise lines offer strong standing that if airlines, trains and other mass transits can move through the country or the world, why not cruise lines. The sanitation changes with all travel entities have shifted the ability to move forward!
  2. Keep in mind.....if all cruise lines can only sell a percentage (ie: 60%) of their staterooms, reserve another percentage for those who need isolation, and finally spread crew and staff into less compacted rooms....the bottom line....prices can't be what they were. I understand that and am willing to accept that as I want to cruise....
  3. For the reasons described, I don't want to use FCCs for future 2021 cruises right now. Unfortunately I found out the hard way you have to tell your TA in ADVANCE if you don't want your FCCs applied to your new booking. My PC was able to re-do it, but she had to go through her supervisor.
  4. World-leading experts headline scientific summit on COVID-19 hosted by WTTC & Carnival Corporation Renowned global scientists and health experts convene for virtual public forum aimed at providing the general public with the latest insights and best practices for living in a world with COVID-19 https://www.carnivalcorp.com/news-releases/news-release-details/media-alert-covid-19-global-scientific-summit-july-28-2-pm-530 This sounds very informative. The article includes a link to the public to register for the summit (no fee involved).

  6. As someone who is anxious to get on a ship again, thanks. Every month we keep having to cancel (this will make #5 during our Covid pause) and now this looks like a November cancellation - just when I thought we might be good to go.......
  7. It's just so frustrating to have piecemeal information and deadlines extended week by week.....If HAL already knows a new deadline - just let us all know so we can re-book or not!
  8. I didn't know either and looked it up: http://www.aos-usa.org
  9. Will you show quotable information about this please. My most recent story from today shows Cunard is suspending "until November", not through November and it mentions nothing about HAL.... https://www.afar.com/magazine/cruise-lines-temporarily-suspend-operations-virgin-voyage-delays-launch?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=062220 CruisesSuspended&utm_term=Daily Wander Newsletter
  10. Oh HAL are you listening! We are already Three cancelled cruises so far and with two more on the horizon for 2020......Certainly NOT our decision to cancel.....
  11. Keep in mind the older ships have less flexibility if required to accommodate to today's new standards for retrofitting for Covid-19 requirements. And with the reality of sailing at diminished capacities, refurbishing ships to meet new world requirements and sailing only partial ships in the fleets, the CCL Corp decision is fairly black and white.
  12. We're booked on both of these also! I With the KDam parked in Puerto Vallarta, she's anxiously waiting for us all!!
  13. Perhaps you received a Club 21 Offer for a free or VERY HIGHLY discounted cruise and if that's the case you are probably correct. I receive flat Club 21 Casino discounts on all my sailings ( a percentage discount for each sailing) and any and all HAL promos always apply to all my casino discounted cruises, on top of any HAL "promos".
  14. I beg to differ. Sometimes the "fine print" is confusing. I can share that all of my cruises have the casino discount and we were able to take advantage of this promo on all our cruises. Even if HAL cancels, we have some tremendous bonuses and discounts! just call your TA and take advantage - if you wish - it's yours to decide!
  15. I'm sure each of their lines have higher and lower percentages. I'm anxious to learn their staggered fleet re-entry - which ships, when and where are the big questions......
