  1. I find it helpful to swing thru a bar or 2 on the way to the Escape room.....ymmv
  2. I am aware that it was a short cruise, however, I appreciate that the passenger reported to medical quickly. I wish them a speedy recovery.
  3. When the news broke and I read the headlines, all I could picture was HM The Queen with a smiley faced plaster on her arm. I hope things go smoothly as the UK ramps up distribution.
  4. It is a fascinating time to live down the street from the Pfizer campus. As you read/hear about the vaccine, please keep in mind that the efficacy rate of 90% will likely change as the next set of trial data is released. The figure can go up or down - so don't be be surprised if you start hearing different information about Pfizer's vaccine. The 90% is based on about 90 people in the trial still catching the virus. The next threshold is when about 160 people in the trial catch it. This data point may have already been reached yet no results released to the public - idk. Rollout w
  5. I would rather be dealing with your Freedom for Explorer trade. I got the Explorer to Radiance trade. Had already L&S-ed the Explorer to 2022 since my friends were too nervous about sailing in 2021. We have been on Radiance for Alaska and Panama Canal - we like the ship but not for the group we are traveling with. Not sure what we are going to end up doing - getting the group to agree on initial trip was like herding cats. I totally agree with a previous poster that RCG is likely trying to get the "best" ships to Florida for runs to Coco Cay. I understand business - but I a
  6. I said the 50% was my guess - no real data is required for a guess. I am equidistant from both airport and have flown to/from both. TF Greene Airport in RI is easier to get to, is a much nicer experience, can be cheaper, is closer to "tourist areas" among other reasons many avoid Bradley. I would even consider driving to Boston for an international flight in order to avoid Bradley. Driving south from Enfield to Bradley is a very different experience than driving to Bradley from many other areas in CT. Our governor is considering a negative test result as a way out of the qua
  7. Unless you are coming into the tri-state area from the current high infection areas identified by these governors you are free to visit. As all states continue to work toward containing the infection, states will be added and deleted from the list as we move forward. As others have said, there is no way of knowing what the list will look like in February or even what rules will be in effect then. Right now in CT, visitors from states on the list are asked to self-quarantine - it is voluntary - the State of CT will not enforce the quarantine on anyone to start (the governor can change hi
  8. As did I. I saw the email from David in my inbox, mentioning that Beth is taking over our reservations and it was signed by Beci. I like the team effort from MEI.
  9. Does anyone know if there has been a change in how TAs are interacting with Royal regarding Lift & Shift requests? I asked my TA to L&S a cruise 3 weeks ago via email - a very specific email with more than enough information to complete the request. When I asked for an update on my request, I was told it had been submitted to Royal. Do TAs no longer have to sit on the phone in order to handle these requests? If there is a new process, does anyone know how long it is taking to get confirmation back to TAs?
  10. Where are you coming from? Are you flying in or driving to port?
  11. I am glad that the issue didn't ruin your holiday. Whether RC reaches out to you is anyone's guess. There has to be a bit of give and take while on a vacation along side lots of different people from different cultures, upbringings and ways of doing things - all stuck on a ship in the middle of the ocean. Being able to roll with the stuff that inevitably happens is part of travelling, but most people understand there is a limit. IMHO, disrupting at least 3 neighboring cabins on a ship went over that line. As I finish preparing for a cruise that leaves this Saturday, I am now unpac
