  1. Gene Sloan at the Points Guy just posted this on his twitter account. BULLETIN: Royal Caribbean Group (@NewsfromRCgroup) has bought the remaining third of @Silverseathat it didn't already own. It's paying in shares of Royal Caribbean Group -- 5.2 million to be exact. At yesterday's closing price, that's about $250 million worth. $RCL
  2. Wow, I had no idea they owned planes. I had to google to find out, it's true. Wamos owns about 10, so there should be no problem getting sick people back home from cruises now that Pullmantur has filed for bankruptcy. Tripadvisor reviews complained about the food and lack of food, besides lost baggages on a charter flight of all things. How in the world is that possible since this was in April, 2020?😂 MIAMI and MADRID, May 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. (NYSE: RCL or "Royal Caribbean") and Madrid-based private equity firm Springwater Capital ("Springwater") today announced an agreement to form a joint venture dedicated to bringing culturally authentic, best-in-class cruise experiences tailored to Spanish and French tourists through the management of the Pullmantur and Croisières de France ("CDF") cruise brands. As part of the terms of the agreement, RCL will sell a 51 percent stake in Pullmantur and CDF to Springwater. RCL will have a 49 percent stake, and retain full ownership of the ships and planes currently operated by Pullmantur and CDF, which will be leased into the joint venture. RCL will also provide marine operations servic
  3. Royal pushed out some credit yesterday, I received a full refund via email from the credit card company. Thank God.

  5. Here's info from Celebrit, it should be the same for Royal: CELEBRITY CRUISES EXTENDS GLOBAL SUSPENSION OF CRUISING Tuesday, June 23rd, 2020 Given ongoing global public health circumstances, Celebrity Cruises. has decided to extend the suspension of most sailings through September 15, 2020.

  6. Someone tweeted them yesterday about their September sailing and they responded that they will make their announcement on June 23rd, which is tomorrow.
  7. I found this website (you will need to go down to the middle of the page) and select the line, then the ship. It provides some pictures and with some ships, if provides you with a list of rooms designated as obstructed. Some of the newest ships, they provide will you an idea of what the obstructed room deck looks like (take note of the camera next to the room on the deck layout). The check tool tells you cabins to avoid. https://www.cruisedeckplans.com/DP/deckplans/index.php
  8. Well, if you charged it to Amex, they will at least send you a email, I received one from them with the Airline had to refund me, so I don't bother going to the Amex to see if they credit my money back. I hope they send another email.
  9. Now that they are starting to return to their building, maybe things will get processed a bit faster. We can only pray. I am still waiting on my May cruise refund. Seeing someone get their July refund, makes me want to hurl something, but I am being patient. Maybe it will be this week. 🙏
  10. Every cruiseline will being asking people to wear them, not just Royal. Until a vaccine is found, I'll wear them in order to NOT get the virus. You could be aysmptomatic without even knowing it. What would you do if the cruiselines request proof of vaccine in the future?
  11. Umm, there were still many in the US, where they are still trying to get them home, many that got home were in that part of the world. I am talking about a typhoon is happening there, iit may have passed by now. As I said, many countries closed their borders, how are they going to get them home if they are working on ships that were sailing the Caribbean? They had to wait it out on the ship, got better idea? Why didn't you present them to the cruise lines. As far as the US Embassy helping Americans, all they are doing is getting charter airlines willing to go there, people are paying the the nose for those flights more than their return ticket was on an airline. So they either purchase a ticket at exhorbant prices or stay in that country. That is as far as the Embassy is doing for Americans, alerting you about it, nothing more. If you don't have the funds to get home? You stay there.
  12. I am sure those with years of service will come back. It also depends on their job situation back home, is there work for them?
  13. I saw this posted yesterday at the Facebook page and thought wow, you would have thought they were the only ones out there trying to get home. Grown adults acting like little children, someone is going to pay dearly for destroying property. Trying to get 10 of thousands home while typhoons in the Philippines are going on and airport closures to international flights has to be a logistical nightmare. Anyway, their ship is headed to Coco Cay, they should give them all inside cabins, just for their enjoyment. 😏
  14. OK, it's because they can't do it themselves?
  15. I have had to back away from that area when I see that.
