  1. I have a B2B on Serenade of the Seas sailing out of Vancouver on July 5th and I am not seeing anything on cruise planner about that one being cancelled.
  2. I picked up more shares of RCL stock today at $35.00. That is my third purchase of stock since March 1st.
  3. We normally do two, and sometimes three cruises a year. We have a B2B scheduled for Alaska in July and still have every intention of going provided it is safe to do so. We also have a December Caribbean cruise scheduled for this year; a 14-day Japan Cruise (Celebrity) for March 2021 and a 14-day Southern Caribbean (Celebrity) scheduled for March of 2022. Am 'window shopping' for a Royal Caribbean Cruise for September/October of 2021 to fill in the gap.
  4. I think one thing they could do would be to have cooks dispense food at the buffet instead of people serving themseles. It only takes one sick person to pick up a service spoon, get something, put it back and pass the germs along to the next person, no matter how much Purell they used entering the buffet. I have witnessed cases of utensils being dropped, picked up and put back. I have seen people grab food with their bare hands. I have seen sneeze and then pick up a service utensil and get food. Amazing the things you see at the buffet when you have time to kill and enjoy people watching.
  5. PLEASE - There are more than enough topics more appropriate for your discussion on COVID-19 -- if you can't talk about RCL stock and its prices, please refrain from responding to off topic discussions. Looking at today's futures - the broad market is poised to open approximately 800 points down, which will erase yesterday's gains. RCL is currently positioned to open at $26.00 a share -- down from yesterday's close.
  6. Anyone else buy at under $27.50 today? Did not pay the lowest price but was up a few cents at the close. I’ll now wait and see what happens next. Dollar cost averaging has always been good to me.
  7. Glad some people are getting some decent reductions. I have yet to find any of my upcoming cruises at a lower price, especially when I look at the loss of the non refundable deposit and my onboard credit. All my upcoming cruises were booked while I was onboard and over the years, I have found that makes a big difference.
  8. Simply WoW! We are scheduled on the Serenade for a B2B starting on July 5th. This is a little close for comfort, especially since we have already book our flights there and back.
  9. Hmmm. We are scheduled for a B2B out of Vancouver sailing on July 5th on RCL. I did not see anything on the RCL boards about this when I was there earlier.
  10. I wonder if this is a temporary thing and is dependent upon how far out your cruise is? I am over 70 but my next celebrity Cruise is not until May 28, 2021.
  11. It's already in place https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/from-other-countries.html?CDC_AA_refVal=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cdc.gov%2Fcoronavirus%2F2019-ncov%2Ftravelers%2Ffrom-china.html
  12. I agree with others that this smacks of age discrimination. Why 70? Why not 35, 40, 45, ...etc. What makes 70 the magic number. I do not have a Celebrity or Royal Caribbean cruise until July but I am sure my primary care physician has more important medical issues to deal with than having me show up asking him to sign a form in order to take a cruise. Although, one of his first questions when I go in for my blood work and check us is to ask about what cruises I had been on lately.
  13. I am familiar with the way market order work and yes, I am willing to pay $56.00 for it. As for opening at $56 and dropping to $48, that might just present another buying opportunity. If this is a wrong decision, it would not be the first time i have been wrong and possible not the last.
  14. Yes, I placed a market order. So when the market opens, my broker will buy the number of shares I specified at whatever the price is at that time.
  15. I put a market order in with my broker last night. Might as well start at this point and keep buying as it goes down!
