    We attend Mass while on board if a priest is also cruising. It is usually listed in the Cruise Compass for that day. If no priest is available, there is no obligation to attend Mass, since there is no Mass!

    Sue and I are getting back to cruising after three years (Covid cancellations, restrictions, etc.), sailing out of Baltimore on Enchantment to the Caribbean over Thanksgiving. Decided late to do the cruise and snagged the last Balcony available. With six sea days, I am considering the Deluxe Beverage package. Does anyone have recent knowledge about drink pricing (cocktails, wine and beer) on board? Most of our previous cruises were out of RCL FL ports and drinks were $12-13, wine $9-10+ and so forth.
    Also, has anyone sailed Enchantment out of Baltimore recently? Anything we should look for or be aware of? I understand we can use a non-proctored home covid test (cruise is twelve nights, and I guess covid germs stay around longer on 12-night cruises than on 8-nighters! Lol!)
    Thanks in advance for any comments, suggestions, etc>

    Sorry to hear about your mother, Daniel. Back in 2019, I had to cancel a Thanksgiving cruise due to an emergency surgery and, after filling out the paperwork and getting the doctor to sign off, the RCL travel protection policy thru Aon made me whole. In your situation, I don't see what loss you would be looking to be reimbursed. If you are referring to the additional cost of reverting to a 2 person room, that only comes into play if you rebook. Don't rebook, have your deceased mother be a "no-show" at boarding, you won't be charged anything extra and you will save yourself from having to do the paperwork. In other words, continue on and enjoy your cruise! Again, condolences on your loss.

    eaglesfaninfl reacted to PurdueFlyer in What’s your deal breaker?   
    face mask is probably my deal breaker unless it's required in very limited quantities.  Getting a q-tip jammed up my nostril at the pier in order to get onboard is a close second.  
    Also, the whole "guilty until proven innocent" phase alot of governments are going through (ie, 14 day quarantine when you return from XYZ whether you have symptoms or not).  We don't do this for any other illness.  It needs to stop.

    eaglesfaninfl got a reaction from RBRSKI in Thanksgiving Cruises 2020   
    We are also but are having second thoughts. The health aspects are certainly one major question but I dislike the thought of masking and distancing on what is supposed to be a vacation. I can't see myself enjoying the cruise under those circumstances, however necessary they might be, so why bother and waste the money? We have been cruising over Thanksgiving numerous times but we might have to miss it this year.

    I agree Waaay...consider our situation. We will be in NJ in November and have a cruise planned out of Baltimore over Thanksgiving. Most of our doctors, including both PCPs, are in FL, where we live much of the year. Since we are both in our mid-70's, we would have to fly to FL and back within a week of the cruise to obtain the certificate, then drive to Baltimore. An alternative would be to go through the hassle of getting a PCP in NJ, including any testing the PCP would require. The third alternative would be to cancel the cruise and that is probably what we will do!
    We love cruising and have enjoyed every cruise we have been on, but after a certain point, it just isn't worth the aggravation.

    We currently have four on the books with Royal and Celebrity. If this holds we will have to cancel them all. Our PCP will NOT assume that liability. I doubt many will. 
    I hope RCI changes this policy or many of their most active cruisers will bail. It's a shame.

    If you purchased travel insurance, between the "personal health issues" plus the CDC recommendations, you may be able to recover the cruise fare. I had a health issue back in November due to emergency surgery and received my full cruise fare back from Aon.

    IMO, Trump has already signaled that we might be turning a corner soon.  Nothing could be MORE true than, "the cure cannot be worse (by far) than the problem".  Combined with the new/old treatment protocols that are showing serious promise and the fact that the lethality of the virus seems to be lower than originally anticipated, I think there will be a change in strategy fairly soon. 
    Hopefully once the prohibitions are lifted (could still be a fair distance off, TBH) I think all of the onerous restrictions (self quarantine, 70 year old doctors' notes, etc.) will be lifted fairly quickly as well.  Not saying that things will return to the same level of effort as BCV (before Coronavirus) but they will come back on line in phases (my guess).
    Fingers crossed...
