  1. I'm annoyed that RC is still advertising Canadian itineraries as "Canadian Itineraries" prior to July 1st in the Find a Cruise section. There's no mention there about those ports being closed until then. You have to find info like that in their Travel Restrictions area, or be on a website like this to know that. I realize they still want to fill the ships, but wouldn't you think they'd put a little asterisk or something in the booking section explaining what their plans are for ports they already know are going to be closed?
  2. The company I work for (about 4,000 employees world wide in manufacturing) is requiring 14 day quarantine for anyone returning from a cruise or the level 3 countries. This only affected about 5 people, most of which are salaried.
  3. True! I guess I meant after it started. I don't want to think about how long it might be into we're really "after" it.
  4. Does anyone else feel like life has been separated between "before" and "after" COVID-19? 😕
  5. Are you guys still on the ship heading to Florida?
  6. You're welcome! The desktop site seems to have more features than viewing it from a phone, like you can filter on the cruiselines. Just a little tip if you didn't notice that yet.
  7. Cruisemapper.com is a good site for seeing where all the ships are for all cruise lines on an online map. https://www.cruisemapper.com/
  8. https://www.usnews.com/news/top-news/articles/2020-03-11/us-bans-foreign-nationals-who-have-been-in-europe-from-entering-us Yep, looks like US citizens are not affected along with some other exceptions.
  9. Princess didn't want another quarantined ship! 😕
  10. As others have said, the full contract would supersede anything we speculate here. But even if you don't receive any cash benefit simply for missing an island (like your nonmonetary loss for missing the fun of stepping foot on that island vs. having an additional sea day), you might be able to claim direct expenses for any ports missed. For instance, if you booked a non-RC excursion and are looking at losing your deposit, that could be a claimable event. However most non-RC excursion companies will refund deposits when the ship doesn't dock, but you could have a rare exception.
  11. Where are you staying on Saturday night? If your hotel is in OSJ they would probably hold your luggage while you walk around, then you can head to the cruise port once you're ready to board. It might be more hassle to go to the cruise port twice with all the traffic.
  12. I highly recommend this one. We had six in our group so the 4 hour private tour rate for six worked perfectly for us and made the price per person less than the ship group tours. If you have less people it might be pricy, but I still recommend it. Very professional and took us everywhere we wanted to go, plus we saw things we wouldn't have know to ask about. https://bahamascruiseexcursions.com/excursions/nassau-private-island-tours/
  13. Look for a Cruise Compass posted on this site for the same ship and itinerary as yours to confirm the nights for formal night. It's different for eastern vs western Caribbean, or something like that. It's good to know if your formal nights are on a sea day or port day for planning time to get back on the ship to get ready if you're going all out.
  14. Oops, you're right!! We were in both places on our cruise and got them mixed up. I remember now, they went to Chaccoben from Costa Maya instead of the further away ruins like Chichen Itza. Thanks for catching that!
