    Jolly Ogre got a reaction from Skigoofy in I'll never stay in a ________________ cabin again!   
    Really no inside cabins??  Ok back in 1978 we had an outside porthole view and it was tiny compared to our inside cabin on our 2019 Allure cruise.
    We had a promenade view on Indy and that was ok but a very noisy at night with all the partying going on.
    We have a GTTY for Symphony coming up, then Jr. suite, then a balcony, so we are testing the rooms to see what we like best.
    However, we had no problems with the value of an inside cabin that we could select on an Oasis class ship.
    We are very light sleepers and my wife sleeps with an eye mask and ear plugs, so a cave is perfect for sleeping.

    Any Voyager class or bigger. That being said, have not been on a Voyager class size yet but I would not rule it out.

    Jolly Ogre reacted to spiralqueen in Tips for Cruising with Anxiety?   
    I just recently did a decent amount of research into the the legalities of CBD oil and traveling with it as I was going to be buying some for the first time. My personal, not lawyer opinion, is that it is in enough of a legal grey area that there is no way on gods green earth I would take CBD oil or any other cannabis derived substance on either a plane or a cruise ship. The risk is just too great for being caught and an overzealous security agent treating it the same as if you were smuggling meth or something. I don’t even have anxiety (I was looking into it for back pain) but just the possibility of something like that happening would make me far too anxious for the benefits to outweigh the risks. I’ve read on some cannabis advocate websites that it is legal to travel with CBD oil, but I’ve read enough articles about people being stopped and arrested in airports (even since the law change)  and noticed it’s explicitly called out as not allowed on planes that I would just never try it.

    Jolly Ogre reacted to twangster in Is there way around the FL law against proof of vaccine   
    Only if we get extra protocols imposed on us that we, the vaccinated, don't need.
    Protocols like masks designed to keep unvaccinated safe make for a cruise experience I am not interested in.
    Here on land masks are only for unvaccinated.  I am good with that.  I can grocery shop, go to a bar, eat dinner out, all unmasked.  
    If all those establishments said I had to wear a mask just to keep the unvaccinated safe, I would not be good with that.  
    How about if an outbreak occurs and 30 unvaccinated get infected?  Does my cruise come to an end?  If so, I am not good with that.  I would rather see the unvaccinated kept off the ship so my cruise experience isn't potentially ruined by them.  
    If the unvaccinated are putting my vacation investment at risk that is not okay. 
    On the other hand if the infected get put off the ship somewhere and the party continues, I'm okay with that.  See ya!

    Will we get a discount on our fares? My cruises are already paid for and I did not pay for a cruise if I have to wear a mask. I have been tested and have been vaccinated and since i do not have the virus there is no way I can pass on the virus. I will not wear a mask anymore.

    I have said it before and I will say it again.
     
    NO!
     
    I am in the medical field and I clearly understand all the ramifications and I will not travel on VACATION if masks are required. And I will advise all my patients as to the same.
    Until there is a viable approved vaccine and it has been widely distributed to the general public and it all gets back to normal I will not cruise.
