  1. Makes sense. Hopefully their home country will allow the ship to drop them off.
  2. None of us know what X plans to do.....but if they have decided that the fleet Revolution is to go ahead, what better time when cruise ships are not sailing? If I was X and willing to bet on myself I’d do this now... but what do I know? Stay safe everyone.
  3. Thoughts, prayers and kudos to the staff and crew if the Eclipse. Sounds like they took great care of the passengers. Once the final passengers are dropped off in Acapulco the ordeal will continue for them. Many will have been away from family and friends for months. Let’s hope their isolation on the ship is short and safe.
  4. A friend send me the following link from Capt Kate's instagram page (I hope it's not a repost). During this difficult time I found it very moving and hope you do too.
  5. BA is doing EXACTLY what most other airlines are doing. They will reschedule for free, but a cancellation is a cancellation. That said, you need to check with Celebrity/Choice Air to see how this was supposed to work under Celebrity's Cancellation policy.
  6. Equinox is anchored off of Freeport. You can look up the location of any ship using cruise ship tracker. Google it, I am not able to post the link.
  7. Hopefully a few good memories too 😁 Almost done our first week of self isolation after our March 7th Equinox sailing. So far so good here.
  8. A funeral procession was passing a golf course where three men are out golfing. One of the guys stops lining up his shot and holds his hand over his heart. The others exclaim, "Roger, that's really kind of you to do that"! Roger replies, "It's the least I could do. I was married to her for 40 years".
  9. I understand that X and other cruise lines still have a business to run... while I personally suspect it will be June (or later) before a cruise sails with paying passengers there is no harm in them selling cabins “just in case”. My concern is that some naive people will book these cruises fully expecting to go on them with no issues. I’m dealing with this issue on a week by week basis. I’m following my government’s request and self isolating. I’m lucky I can work from home. Take care and be safe.
  10. I know this is the Celebrity forum but thought this information would be interesting. I stumbled upon a YouTube vlog (Chris Wong Vlogs) of a crew member currently onboard a RCL ship. He had expected to be on the ship the full 30 days but just announced he is leaving the ship next week and will return home to the UK. Interesting development, wonder if Celebrity and other cruise lines will be doing this. Assume there are many factors involved but hope that if it’s safe to do so many will be allowed to return home.
  11. Our flight back to Canada was sold out.... Wall to wall people... almost a flying pitre dish. Fingers crossed that my DW or myself are virus free.

  13. Was down in South Beach, looked up the coast towards Ft Lauderdale and the beaches were packed. Police did shut down all the large parking lots but it appear people found there way to the beach anyway....
  14. Safe travels. We fly home later tonight (our regular scheduled flight). Expecting the airport to be packed. Canadian Prime Minister holding a New Conference today, expected that Canada may close it’s borders to all international travel including the US. We are going to self isolate when we get home. Seems like the wise thing to do. hopefully we meet on a cruise shortly after this virus is defeated.
