There is no way my doctor or any doctor is going to provide a certificate of fitness to travel, so I guess I won't be sailing after all.  I wouldn't blame any doctor for refusing - too much liability at stake.

The Cruise lines need to check on the HIPAA laws. 🤔 

The Cruise lines need to check on the discrimination laws too. 😐 

There only applying this rule to one age group. 😒

Doctor Notes Not Required for Passengers Over 70

Cruisers over 70 years of age are being reassured they will not have to provide a doctor's note to be able to cruise, once operations resume.

 

Well...OK. 😀

 

See..I made a few calls, pulled some strings..🤔  YA..That's it...

Carnival Provides Update on Mardi Gras Inaugural Cruise Season

 

Published

3 weeks ago
 April 14, 2020

 

Why Snagging A Mardi Gras Stateroom Is So Tough

 

That said, there’s more to the story than first meets the eye.

While it’s very likely that Mardi Gras would be sold out under any circumstances, Carnival has unintentionally made the ship even more desirable with their decision to ease back into sailing once things return to normal down the line.

As we first reported last week, Carnival realizes that ongoing travel restrictions could make it difficult to get all of their crew members back on short notice once the current no-sail order is lifted.

With that in mind, a spokesperson told us that the company was basically limiting inventory on some sailings “so that we don’t overextend our ability to provide service on board.”

As it turns out, that same philosophy is impacting the still-to-be-unveiled ship. “Mardi Gras has been a popular ship since the moment we opened it up for sale last year,” a spokesperson tells Cruise Radio. “The delivery delay previously announced, along with the cancellation of the first 8 sailings, only drove more demand to book available inventory.”

But a thing worth doing is a thing worth doing right. “Given that this is a new class of ship and the largest we have ever operated,” the rep tells us, “we are still capacity-controlling the inventory as we take a conservative approach its first months of service. So sailings that are closed are the results of bookings reaching their self-imposed capacity.”

As of now, Mardi Gras is expected to set sail on November 14, 2020 :classic_biggrin:

I spoke with my Carnival cruise planner yesterday. 

She confirmed that carnival is holding back on bookings to reduced capacity. 

Carnival wants make sure that there's enough crew members for the amount of passengers.  

 

I copied this from another thread.🤔

Being a Veteran from the 1970's.

Tomorrow,  I'll place a dozen small flags across my lawn to honor all the veteran that gave the ultimate sacrifice.  

Happy Memorial Day

I borrowed this comment from the March 27th  Mardi Gras Thread.😎

 

 

Carnival's motto is "Fun For All-All For Fun". I've added the word ......"Eventually" 😀

 

I think this is the perfect quote.

The two-person car of the Bolt roller coaster, shown here in a rendering, will twist and turn at speeds up to 37 miles per hour.

Instead of the chains and sprockets of a clicketyclack roller coaster, which pull a car full of people to the top of a track before gravity takes over on the way down, this ride would be more like a motorbike. The two-person car would have controls for the front rider. Just like an electric car, this roller coaster could be virtually silent. And just like an electric car, it could have immediate and powerful acceleration.

The Bolt roller coaster will cover one-third of the aft top deck, winding around the ship’s big exhaust funnel, a deck above the water park, basketball court and mini golf for safety reasons. Its weight and footprint will be less than half the size of a land-based roller coaster, and one circuit on the 656-foot-long track will take only about 20 to 30 seconds. A ride may be two times around—Carnival hasn’t yet decided. Nor has it determined if there will be a reservation system to book a ride or a cost to passengers for riding. The coaster can accommodate 190 riders each hour.
