  1. Zero. I have trust issues and a bunch of FCC. Sigh.
  2. On that train... My cousin reacted horribly to the vaccine. Inflamed rashes all over her body that lasted for 10 days. She's now seeing an allergist/immunologist to monitor - her symptoms were bad enough to skip the 2nd shot according to the CDC and her doc. While talking to the doc she realizes when she was sick in April it was likely covid since she had these same symptoms on a smaller scale (and had antibodies). No one thought she had Covid in April because her symptoms weren't the norm. She works in the ER so she had PLENTY of opinions.
  3. Got the first shot last week. Was on a waiting list for extras so got lucky and was able to get it before my time. I am not really a vaccine person, I only get the flu shot every few years but I REALLY wanted to see my family and they all have either comorbitities or work in health care. so got it already. We lost a family member recently (non covid related) and it was worse because we couldn't gather afterwards due to everyone's health concerns. I started looking up cruises immediately.
  4. I actually only check in every so often because talking about cruising right now is depressing...
  5. I'm still not sure I care about what rules are put in place for me to cruise (get me out of my house) but I'm still not comfortable being around groups of people and won't be until I have the vaccine. My first cruise will likely be local so I don't have to fly. Who knows, it's not like there are any options to cruise at the moment.
  6. I've cruised solo a few times and any event I tried to go to was poorly attended. The last one was a trivia where there were a bunch of couples which in my opinion is the exact opposite of what was expected. Most definitely not looking for a relationship while cruising but I do love meeting people.
  7. I tip a bit for almost every drink/coffee on every cruise. I have absolutely noticed the level of service changes - the staff makes it a point to know my name immediately (which I actually hate for some reason but I do 100% appreciate the effort) and make sure to come back to me. My friends noticed it at the pool - the bartenders would always come to me for my drink order. I don't tip more than a dollar or two, I'm not a huge drinker - it's a smile and a buck. I appreciate someone waiting on me and they appreciate me appreciating them. To add - I notice this with female and male servers/barten
  8. Congratulations!! Why are you guys moving? (did I miss that?). A brand spankin' new house is amazing! Every little space is yours and no one else has touched it. It's a great time - I'm in NY. One of the co-ops in where I live sold in hours and the previous owners missed out on two opportunities to buy a new house because everything is going so fast. My friend just sold her house that we thought would take a while because of the work needed..sold in 2 weeks.
  9. It's sooooo bad but the cruise stuff is fun.
  10. Didn't do that itinerary but loved Anthem and Cape Liberty. It was my first solo trip - I had no issue navigating Cape Liberty, everything was pretty easy to get around. (except the machines were down post cruise and there was a 2 hour wait outside (cold) until they were back up). Anthem was a lovely ship with so many places to sit and relax.
