  1. 'Please spare us the rhetoric - all media is to blame and all the politicians are to blame - In our Cancel Culture we are more afraid of hurting someone's feelings than doing what should be done. ' Thank you for your rhetoric. I agree, both sides are to blame.
  2. As the coronavirus continues to spread worldwide and throughout the U.S., some Fox News hosts have actively downplayed its severity, accusing Democrats and the media of pushing a hoax to undercut President Donald Trump. In stark contrast, Fox News brass is taking the outbreak very seriously. In a Thursday memo to staff, obtained by The Daily Beast, Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott and network president Jay Wallace warned employees about the risks of COVID-19, and announced steps the network will take to combat its spread, including telecommuting, reduced in-studio guest bookings, and enhanced office cleanings. Fox News brass also emphasized the channel’s duty to keep viewers informed with accurate information, underscoring the seriousness of the unfolding epidemiological situation.
  3. FYI, just canceled our RCI Rhapsody Jun 13, 2020 out of Venice via our TA. We made final payment week ago. Apparently RCI didn't process it yet, so we will get a full refund. We took out insurance with our TA and will get that back, too. Not through the Cruise Line. We also cancelled our MSC Venice cruise for June 5, 2020. Received a FCC for cruise and port charges. Will get a refund for the taxes. Lost our insurance because final payment was processed by MSC. TA did it all for us. No problems. Now to cancel Delta flights.

  6. Not being funny, however, what are your qualifications, expertise, hunches, to make such statements? LOL I only know of one man who is such a know-it-all. LOL
  7. The biggest concern is not only an individual practicing good hygiene but: 1. Others on your cruise who get the virus 2. Ship not allowed into ports 3. Ship being quarintied. For days/ weeks 4. Airlines allowing you to board to fly back home 5. The total risk of becoming ill. Age and current health conditions are a big factor, too. Men are at higher risks than women. Men 71%. Yes, it is an individuals choice. Let us have the choice to cancel.
  8. This is the latest form RCI. Concerned about coronavirus? Contemplating canceling your cruise? Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd (NYSE:RCL) has you covered. The rapid expansion of COVID-19 infections around the world is "adding uncertainty to travel plans," said Royal Caribbean Group in a statement today. To help eliminate some of that uncertainty, the cruise line operator says that through July 31, 2020, it will permit passengers to cancel cruises they have booked up to 48 hours before departure. Royal Caribbean's new "Cruise With Confidence" policy extends across the company's fleet of brands, including Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises, Azamara, and Silversea. Guests who have already booked a cruise for departure, or who book one in the future (within the time period stated), will be able to cancel up to two days before they sail, and "will receive a full credit for their fare, usable on any future sailing of the guest's choice in 2020 or 2021." With cancellations generating a credit rather than a refund, Royal Caribbean is characterizing its new policy as a rain check for guests who delay existing vacation plans, but don't cancel them -- or remove them from the company's revenue stream -- entirely. As such, the effect on the parent company will more likely be to delay revenue than to forgo it entirely. At the same time, Royal Caribbean may garner for itself a measure of goodwill, and maybe even attract a few customers who might choose one of its cruises over cruising with companies that have more restrictive cancellation policies. I'm sure other cruise lines will follow the same.
  9. Been on Seaside twice and there is no dress code. Shorts were allowed in the MDR on formal nights. Asked about that and was told MSC did NOT want to cause a problem. Times have changed.
  10. There no longer is a dress code! Wear what you want. Just got off Edge. Very casual every night. Times have changed.
  11. Thank you! It is totally out of my price range. LOL I can get a cruise cheaper than that. Yes, I know, have 4 people split the cost. That would make it $75/person. Different strokes for different folks.
  12. What is the price of the cabanas on the Edge pool deck? Can you rent by day or by week? Thank you!
  13. OMG, thank you so very much for the link. I will know everything about this ship and our up coming cruise. Thanks to BirdTravels, too. BirdTravels took a lot of time to gather and post this info that is greatly appreciated.
  14. Going on the Encore this month. Will someone please provide a link to the recent daily bulletins? Thank you in advance! Happy CRUISING!
