  1. I believe that everyone is beyond ready to start cruising again.
  2. The CVS stores in my area are advertising that you can get your test results back in 2-3 days. I figure if I go and get tested exactly 5 days out I should be able to get the results back before I have to travel to the port. This does not leave me much wiggle room since I am sailing out on November 5 and 5 days prior to that date is a Friday. If the labs are not operating over the weekend then I would most likely not get my results back until the day we are scheduled to leave I will definitely be looking for a rapid test site and following along as to how Royal plans to handle the testing
  3. After reading the article that Matt posted my first thoughts were there is no way that cruising will return this year. Now that the government wants to get involved I am willing to bet that we will start to see the lines announce that all sailing this year are cancelled. Disney has already canceled their sailings until late December so the other major lines will now be shortly behind them in my opinion. -Eric
  4. It is obvious that I need more coffee.
  5. lol....yup that was a typo. It has been fixed.
  6. I believe that sailings will start back up in November. They will be short 3 - 4 day sailings and the ships will be carrying a limited number of passengers . Pretty much just like MSC is doing it in Italy right now.
  7. From the recent news that is coming out I am starting to believe that cruising on a limited bases might actually start in November. What has started to move my thinking into the positive is the fact that the CDC just came out informing states to start making preparations for a COVID vaccine by early November. If they are publicly making this announcement I am thinking that they are going to let the no sail order expire the end of October.
  8. I just checked in for my Nov 4th cruise and the earliest I can board is 2:30 as well. I believe that 2:30 is the earliest anyone will be able to select since they have to a serious deep cleaning now of the rooms.
  9. I think that the real test will be when schools are back in session. With the President putting a big push on for kids to be physically at schools that will be the real test. If COVID for teachers and parents of the students attending in person classes begin to spike upwards you can easily kiss the 2020 cruise season goodbye. Here in Georgia it appears that most schools are leaning toward a hybrid school year with doing remote the first semester then doing in person classes. I work for a major university and they are planning on having the majority of the classes be in person still. The fall s
  10. This is the perfect trip in my opinion and if my wife could take that many days off from her business I would love to have do an itinerary like this.
  11. I am in the same boat more or less as you for in the morning most of our drinks come from coffee. We do pick up bottled water on island days but we do not normally drink that much water while on the ship. We mainly drink alcoholic drinks while on the ship with the exception of breakfast and lunch at which time we normally drink ice tea. We try to pick sailings that not port intensive as well so that get time to explore and enjoy the ship because for us the ship is part of the destination as well.
  12. My April sailing is 10-15 so that could still be considered Spring Break. I have sailed during this time before and granted the prices were somewhat higher but not like they are for this sailing.
  13. My wife and I are scheduled to sail for 5 nights on Independence of the Seas in April 2021. I have been keeping an eye on the cruise planer drink prices since they opened it up and cannot believe the asking price. RCL is wanting $71 for the deluxe and $81 for deluxe with Voom. To me this is highway robbery. Mind you the price I just quoted is down from $77 and $93. It would appear that if these prices do not come down some more for me that I will not be doing any drinking on this sailing. On another note I am also set to sail Rhapsody of the Seas in December 2021 on another 5 night sailin
  14. It is but they will also update their guidance as well for the up coming quarter. I expect CCL and RCL to both cut their dividend rates out all together or for them to cut them down to almost nothing. Most likely since they do not qualify for any of the bailout money they will get rid of dividends to help pay the bills.
  15. I am personally waiting on Carnival to report their earnings later this week before I decide if I want to jump in or not. CCL's ER will definitely tell us more on what is taking place.
