  1. Stand Earth appears to be an environmental group that wants to end the use of fossil fuels. I suppose they want extend the CDC order because with the ships not sailing they are not polluting. A convoluted reason to write the CDC to continue the stop order when the CDC stop order has nothing to do with stopping pollution. I don’t think the CDC will take letters sent by the group seriously. I don’t think the cruise lines take the group seriously and neither should we. The group sent 63 letters. Hardly a massive number. Cruise lines might want focus on the group to stir cruise fans up about the group to get us to write more letters to the CDC supporting cruising. If the CDC has only received 3000 comments that is not much of a response..... Maybe the public does not care right now if cruises restart. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. It doesn’t appear to me that Stand Earth is going to effect the end of cruising. Covid 19, vaccination and treatments, and economics are going to determine the future of cruising. Also even if the CDC says the cruise lines can sail tomorrow that does not mean there will be sufficient bookings to sustain the industry. Just like some have wait and see approach to taking a vaccine...I have a wait and see approach to returning the cruising. The data has to show me a vaccine is safe and the data has to show me that cruising is safe. Trip reports have to indicate that cruising will not be stressful. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. I don’t think there is a universal answer. I expect a vaccine will be mandated by some schools. Don’t get vaccinated then unvaccinated children can’t attend those. Find another school or home school. Long term care workers may be mandated. Also other health fields. Those workers who don’t want the get vaccinated will have a choice. Get vaccinated or no employment at those places that mandate vaccination. Cruise lines could mandate vaccination, it will be a business decision. Really depends on the Covid situation down the road. Some countries could mandate vaccination and cruise lines won’t be able to go to those without proof that passengers have been vaccinated. Since there are countries requiring Covid tests that requirement would certainly be on the table. But really it is all speculation right now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. There were only two lounges 8 years ago and there are only two lounges now. There was no lounge that was not either. Hey if you want to make up stuff go ahead......we won’t pay any more attention to your reality distortion field. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. There are two lounges. The Diamond Club and the Suite Lounge. (previously called the Concierge Club) If you were in a suite then you could have used the other lounge no matter what loyalty tier you were in. If you were in a suite that would explain your recollection. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. It didn’t exist for any tier lower than Diamond. You remember wrong. I have been cruising RCL since 1996. Almost one every year including January of this year. If you are Diamond that is what you are recalling. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. Thanks for your report. The above is what I wanted know. I will wait for better times. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. I think science is working. Time will tell about Warp Speed. I don’t have any issue with the attempt. I hope it is successful. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. I personally would avoid the cup match holiday dates of July 29 -30. Stores will be closed and beaches will be packed. Public buses will be on a reduced schedule. People camp out on the beaches. It is a four day holiday weekend beginning on Thursday. Thursday and Friday are back to back Bermuda holidays. It is the big Bermuda holiday of the year. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. Azamara and Celebrity points are added together. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. I participated in some of promo even though my situation is the same. I won’t ever advance from E+ to Z. Celebrity should create a tier in between E+ and Zenith as more realistic loyalty incentive. That in between tier does not have to have major perks. A few minor perks would be good enough.

  12. I believe it is their less than stellar IT department. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. Since they continue putting out Power Up point activities it likely they are getting participation beyond CC members. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. I would not either. It was fun reading about the new ports and finding the answers myself. This was my favorite of the power points activities so far. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  15. The ports link is in the email on the left and the link to the quiz is on the right so obviously they intended the port page to be used to find the answers to the quiz. I opened the links and the two pages were side by side in my web browser. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
