    These recommendations are totally incomplete. No mention at all was made whether hiding rubber ducks would be allowed.

    SpeedNoodles reacted to FManke in Family is suing Royal Caribbean after misdiagnosis aboard Symphony of the Seas   
    This I know to be true as I survived bacterial meningitis back in 2002. I had all the classic symptoms, but a spinal tap was needed to confirm the suspicions. I was sick for a couple of days before with some symptoms and even visited the ER and was told it was an "inner ear infection". The "classic" symptoms in my case, came on quickly and according to my Doctors,  I was a couple of hours away from dying, even though it was only an "inner ear infection" a couple of days sooner.  I don't know if the RC DR was to blame or not. I know some of the early symptoms in my case, mimicked a lot of other ailments.
    My thoughts and prayers go out to the little girl and her family.

    I'm not blaming the family at all, but what would lead them to this belief?  Did they think they were sailing on Mayo Clinic of the Seas?  "“We were always under the impression that the medical facilities and staff on a ship were world class and world leading."

    SpeedNoodles reacted to michelle in If Lift & Shift request is submitted, do you have to accept their pick?   
    Probably not but you have to call in and tell them you got X cruise but now want to see if there are any options for that
    If you lifted though like 3 weeks ago -that could be different.   But call and ask them for options.

    Hopefully the border will be open by May and the Alaskan cruise season will proceed in some fashion.

    SpeedNoodles got a reaction from 4ensic in What is your favorite memory from your last cruise you took?   
    My favorite memory was shocking Mr. SpeedNoodles when we were on an ATV tour in Puerto Rico last February on our Symphony sailing - It was only the 2nd time I'd ever driven an ATV (the first time being the day before, mostly on paved roads), and the mud was up to a foot deep in places.  He didn't think I"d even try to go through some of the big puddles or mud, but I just dove into them the entire time and never got stuck - he was shocked!  It's not easy to shock your husband after 26 years of marriage!

    Not just river cruises in NA - I once looked up that train tour through the Rockies and wow that's pricey. Wouldn't mind doing it but I gotta win the lottery first.

    Still clinging to that strand of hope for Nov 9 on Grandeur, I just said screw it and booked my 1st cabana at Labadee, price is just too good (and I'm promoting social distancing...I'm a responsible citizen after all!)  😆

    SpeedNoodles reacted to WAAAYTOOO in Airline doesn't want to book flight....   
    Resurrecting an old thread.  I wanted to report on a GREAT experience with American Airlines and itinerary changes.
    I had to change a flight NOT once, but TWICE.  For both calls, AA made the necessary changes quickly and without charging a dime in change fees.  I am thrilled with this new policy.  The first time I changed it, there was an increase in fare (which I absolutely expected) so I just paid the increased fare.  The second time I changed it, the fare went DOWN by over $350 PP so I got credit vouchers for that fare difference.
    After so many bad experiences trying to change air itineraries, I was happy for some good news.  I hope they NEVER change their no change fee policy !!!

    Me either.  We get calls on 911 all of the time that go something like this:
    911:  "And the female that you saw, can you describe her, please?"
    Caller: "Yes, she was a white female, brunette, blue jacket, elderly"
    911:  "And can you give me an idea of what you mean by elderly, sir?"
    Caller: "Oh, you know, about 35."

    One thing I would caution is that testing in the future may look different than testing today. 
    The protocols announced are not for cruising In September 2020 but potentially for many months into the future.  Testing in March for example will likely look a lot different than today.   Testing in June will be different than testing in March.  Testing one year from today will be very different compared to what it is today.  As business travel restarts the need for non-symptomatic rapid testing will change.  Personal travel will benefit from those changes.
    Families too will need to consider the impact of testing on their little angels.  Some children may not like testing requirements.  Is a complete meltdown from a swab up the nose worth it?
