  1. I cut most of your post to save space, but I'd "like" it twice if I could. Since I work in a supermarket, I wear a mask at work. I even started wearing one before they were mandatory. They really aren't that big of a deal. While I'm all about freedoms and have plenty of concerns with government overreach, mask/face covering usage is simply not the hill to die on.
  2. I agree. The big joke among people who know me is why would I want to go on a cruise ship surrounded by people when I don't like crowds? It's hard to explain to someone who has never been on a cruise that, with just a couple exceptions, I can always find plenty of personal space.
  3. My first cruise ever and my wife's first in well over 20 years was on Mariner in January 2018. We did a 5-night stopping at Costa Maya and Cozumel. I'm glad it was no shorter and wished it was longer. The thing that sticks with me the most is the customer service level. Every employee we interacted with was outstanding. Regrets: I didn't try the Flowrider.
  4. It will be interesting to see if we can still book guaranteed inside cabins......and if they cut the people already booked in the cheap seats, will we be among them?
  5. I live in the greater Portland area, but spent the first 27 years of my life in Jackman....Quebec plates on the road were always a mainstay of summer. My wife and I went up last week....the roads were empty. Very weird.
  6. That will totally devastate the tourism industry along the southern Maine coast. Canadians come down in droves during the summer....except now they aren't.
  7. We are hoping to not have to deal with this....my in-laws live in NB and all their kids are in Maine. My father in law is not in good health (not covid, just a tired heart).
  8. There is a compliance form that is "supposed" to be filled out. It states I certify that ONE of the following is true (PLEASE CHECK ONE): I have received a negative test result for COVID-19 on a specimen taken no later than 72 hours prior to my arrival, consistent with Maine CDC guidance. OR I will quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in Maine or for the duration of the stay; OR I have completed a 14-day quarantine in Maine prior to my stay. https://www.maine.gov/decd/sites/maine.gov.decd/files/inline-files/KeepMaineHealthy_GuestComplianceCertificate.pdf https://www.maine.gov/covid19/restartingmaine/keepmainehealthy/faqs#:~:text=Seasonal homeowners%2C workers traveling to,quarantine in Maine effective immediately. I put "supposed" in quotes as I really don't believe many people are following the rules.
  9. I believe here in Maine, we are supposed to either quarantine or have negative test if we go to and come back from any other state besides NH and VT......ditto for all visitors from any state but those two.
  10. I mean for any reason legit or not. I work in a supermarket. We Are the proverbial flies on the wall.
  11. I can’t even imagine the “Karens” policing everyone who drops their mask for a split second while cruising. Mask Police are currently all over retail stores just waiting to call you out for not wearing it wearing it to their standards.
  12. It's hard for me to get worked up about being around people on our next cruise when I work in a supermarket.
  13. Shoot, the Navy lets sailors and Marines swim off the stern of amphibious assault ships...as a bonus, an inside cabin on a cruise ship will seem like a suite after a float on a gator freighter. 😄 Edited to add link for those who don't know what I'm talking about. https://www.businessinsider.com/marine-corps-swim-call-2016-2
  14. Only way we’ll cancel is if a quarantine is required when we come back home.
