  1. OOPS! sorry, I seem to have 'hijacked' this thread! -arleen
  2. Thanks RKA , we are doing our best to stay healthy. We walk 3+ miles every evening in 95+ degree heat. Also no Cruise Buffets or Desserts. We have each lost close to 10 ponds!
  3. Thanks, my real 'ageless' advice is : marry someone a lot older. That way you will always be younger! LOL
  4. Thanks! I remember when I was 68 & hadn't heard of one either!
  5. Many of Y'all's reasons were great. But... I cruise because on a cruise, I am "ageless". Yesterday I turned 70, our family B'day celebration was cancelled. Would have been our 52nd sailing. When I cruise, I line dance at the Sail Away Deck Party, I play all the games=Corn Hole, Charades, etc. I love Trivia, I go to the shows, dance with the waiters at dinner, Go to Quest, stay up to the wee hours in the Casino, jog around the decks, hike w/my DH in all of the European Ports on our TA's. Luckily we are in great health & can do all we want because on a cruise I am NOT 70, I am "ageless"!
  6. My #1 piece of advice for newbies= Port Time & Ship Time may be different. Wear a watch...the ship will leave w/o you! Have Fun!
  7. Hello, nice seeing a name I recognize. We were on the Horizon TA-Barcelona to NYC & came over on the NCL Star from Miami 3 days prior. I had Tea with Y'all several times. My DH helped Sue Greenberg with Friday nt. services. Also we went on a pre-cruise tour with Sue G. & Louise H. Last April we sailed Vision of the Seas, Galveston to Barcelona=17 days. Ship couldn't compare to Horizon. Like everyone else...waiting to sail again! -arleen
  8. Thanks all. I hate to cancel but think we will just take a Galveston cruise. 3+ hours from our home. Keep trying to take our 1st as Diamond. Same with Carnival. Supposed to take our Milestone (25th) cruise but not happening either. Oh well!
  9. We had a FCC from problems we encountered on Enchantment. Applied it to LOS 04/26/20 which was cancelled. Moved FCC to Adventure Repo NJ-TX 11/05/20. Doubt we will go. We live in TX but do not want to fly to EWR. Cert for FCC expires 11/07/20. If we cruise after that date, I guess we will lose our FCC. Any other opinions?
  10. We had an Aug cruise booked. It was one of the ones that are supposed to sail from TX. We do not want to go, so we cancelled & asked for our deposit to become a Future Cruise credit on our Panama Canal cruise ( which was already booked). That cruise sails on 01/24/2021. Our acc't does not show the FCC yet. It has been a few weeks. thanks-arleen
  11. We cancelled our Aug 17, 2020 on Dream. Opted for a FCC ( from our deposit) to be applied to an already booked Panama Canal 01/24/21. Any idea how long before we see that FCC in our account? Thanks, arleen
  12. While it is NOT a round trip, we are booked Nov. 5, 2020 Adventure NJ-TX repo. Ports include Aruba & Curacao. Even money on whether or not it will sail.
  13. I was on this thread way back when it was actually about refunds. My 2 cents. Diamond on Royal, Platinum on Carnival. Some status on Princess, NCL & have cruised several other lines. Cruise from Galveston a lot & CCL & RCI are it. Like them both, never had a bad Carnival, but in Oct/Nov Enchantment was the pits! They even gave us a FCC because it was so bad. But I will be cruising both of them again as soon as possible.
  14. Thanks, Island Lady. This forum seems to have gone 'off the rails'.
