    That was from a June 5 repricing. Usually I will get the refund in 4-5 days but after reading the thread I was not expecting it for awhile.

    When I repriced my Coco Club beach day in April it only took 5 days to get a refund now it has been 3 weeks and still nothing. 
    After reading these posts I guess I will be lucky to get it in 45 days.

    Yes, of course. And the Air Force has its own spirited cry which can mean anything positive. Here are some examples:
    Hooah - Army; Hoorah - Navy; Oorah - Marine Corps; Nice Putt - Airforce.

    Contrast with my 16-year old daughter: Hesitantly picks one up with her fork, puts it in her mouth and bites down, eyes widen in shock. "This is so WRONG! Why does this taste SO GOOD!!!"
    And proceeds to fight with me for the remaining items on the tray. We both agree taste and texture are just like oven-broiled mushroom caps. (which we LOVE)

    Who is going to provide these masks?
    And you do realize that they are single use only?
    There is no safe reusable mask. There are respirators with disposable filters, however again who is going to provide these and the filters and then the cleaning of respirators?

    Jolly Ogre got a reaction from Ogilthorpe in What’s your deal breaker?   
    Yes, that and the real issue is the people making these decisions, really don't know the why or how.  They are ill informed or misinformed as to  the reasons they are making these decisions or why they are making them.
    I hear and see all kinds of comments from lay people that really don't know what they are talking about.  TV interviews with "TV" doctors that just gloss over things or leave very important info out.
    Then the real docs that say anything contrary to CDC or government agenda are censored. 
    But all they really want to do is make people "feel" better.
    I could give you medicine to mask the symptoms and you will "feel" better but that does not solve the problem. Most people don't want to hear that.
    Sorry end rant.

    Things that make you go hmmmm.... What is the original intent/purpose of surgical masks? 
    Surgical mask
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia     Jump to navigationJump to search Surgical mask A surgical mask Other names Procedure mask, medical mask, isolation mask, laser mask, fluid-resistant masks, face mask [edit on Wikidata] A surgical mask, also known as a face mask, is intended to be worn by health professionals during healthcare procedures.[1][2] It is designed to prevent infections in patients and treating personnel by catching bacteria shed in liquid droplets and aerosols from the wearer's mouth and nose.[3][4][5] They are not designed to protect the wearer from breathing in airborne bacteria or viruses whose particles are smaller. With respect to some infections like influenza they appear as effective as respirators, such as N95 or FFP masks;[6] though the latter provide better protection in laboratory experiments due to their material, shape and tight seal.[7][8]
    Surgical masks vary by quality and levels of protection. Despite their name, not all surgical masks are appropriate to be used during surgery. Surgical masks may be labeled as surgical, isolation, dental, or medical procedure masks.[9] Chinese health officials distinguish between medical (non-surgical) and surgical masks.[10]
    Surgical masks are made of a nonwoven fabric created using a melt blowing process. They came into use in the 1960s and largely replaced cloth facemasks in developed countries. The use of surgical masks during the COVID-19 pandemic has been a subject of debate,[11] as shortages of surgical masks is a central issue.[12][13]
    Surgical masks are popularly worn by the general public all year round in East Asian countries like China, Japan and South Korea to reduce the chance of spreading airborne diseases to others, and to prevent the breathing in of airborne dust particles created by air pollution.[14] Additionally, surgical masks have become a fashion statement, particularly in contemporary East Asian culture bolstered by its popularity in Japanese and Korean pop culture which have a big impact on East Asian youth culture.[15][16]
    Mask's are not designed for those that aren't sick to wear, but for those that are sick to keep from spreading it.  It's like we've got this thing turned around! 
    Why can't we go back to the way it was intended/designed for?

    Jolly Ogre got a reaction from JLMoran in LIFT & SHIFT! THIS IS WHY YOU SHOULD USE A TRAVEL AGENT!   
    Does not apply 
    NEW! Introducing Lift & Shift for those guests simply wishing to move their existing booking to next year. Eligible for rebooking between now and August 1, 2020, guests can protect their original price and promotional offering simply by selecting a future sailing on the same itinerary type, sailing length, stateroom category, and within the same 4-week period of their original cruise date same-time-next-year
     
    The only one that is close is $300 pp more, and that is with a port change, going to St Maarten and not St Kitts.

    Well this really sucks...so there are no other itineraries that fall within the parameters set by the lift and shift program. 
    So am I just screwed out of my cruise?
    Oh sure there are other cruises but at significantly high fares.
    I just want what I am paying for.
    I know its not RCCL fault ...just venting.
