I can't wait until we get back to.....

    Tipping 

    Jeans/shorts in the dining room 

    Flip flops in the dining room

    Beverage package

    What time to arrive

    OBC

    Sea days

You know what in mean. All these refund and guessing games and mask questions are wearing me out. Best of luck to all and stay healthy.

I can’t wait for the late comers to muster still with their drinks in their hand. Looking at us like we were only playing red rover. 🤷🏾‍♀️

I'm thinking hopefully less than 2 months before cruising resumes. 2 months from today about time for muster drill

I can wait until it's completely safe to cruise.

 

I'm not going to risk my health or my family's health for a cruise...

I feel the same way. Not going to take any unnecessary risks. A lot of people depend on me.

Excellent thread.

 

If all goes well, sometime before noon on Saturday, October 10, I will be walking onto the Breeze.  Quick run to my room to drop off my rum runners while the wife goes to reserve a couple loungers by the pool and a clamshell on Serenity.  I used to use this time to be first in line at Guest Services to remove my tips, but I learned to do it on the last night so the crew doesn't find out and treat me different.

 

JUST KIDDING!!!  Relax.  I've never done any of those things.  

 

If all goes well, I will get on board, drop off my carry-ons, grab any drink with an umbrella in it, eat lunch (buffet, cafeteria, idk...doesnt matter) unpack, go to muster drill, head back and settle into 8 days of watching the ocean go by on my balcony in my underwear.

You forgot "should I get FTTF", "Coke vs Pepsi" and the infamous no table cloths on the dining room tables

Im wondering how they are even going to do muster drills now?? Even at half capacity that would be a tall task to maintain social distancing. Personally I don't see why they couldn't do them in the cabins on the TV, I know that's against maritime law or something but everything I see crammed onto the deck outside I could easily see on a TV in the cabin.

First time I heard it's against maritime rules to watch on tv. Maybe they know you wouldnt pay attention or know it's always on the back of your door for all cruiselines where your muster boat is.

I dont cruise until oct. I want to go so bad, today I looked at august prices. All the deals out of Galveston are gone.

 

Anyone think there might be some better last minute deals to hop on?

It’s always possible. We frequently meet a gentleman when we cruise out of NO who only does walk-up He lives 15 minutes fromThe pier and when the spirit moves him he packs his bag and shows up at the pier. Says he can almost always get on and gets a single room without the supplement. I’m too picky about cabin location but I enjoy hearing his stories- and he cruises once a month!


76 past cruises
Upcoming:
CCL Dream 8/22/2020. Western Caribbean
NCL Breakaway 1/10/2021 Western Caribbean

I wonder how he does that actually?  Doesn't he need a boarding pass to even get into the terminal?

All I know is if the buffet is going away, they'll have to let me bring my George Foreman and rice cooker 😁

georgiacruzer, he told me there is a number he calls that morning, and they let security know and he goes to a special person at the desk to do the paperwork, pay, etc.   I haven’t seen him in a few years since we moved to Texas.  Now when we sail CCL we go out of Galveston, and only go to NO for NCL,

 

maybe I’ll start a thread and ask others who’ve done it how it specifically works.  Anything for a non Covid thread.

Ah yes, butter.  If there's one good thing that comes out of this pandemic it will be the end of the community butter crock.
