  1. Interesting...like I said, never heard that before from any cruise company but first time for everything I guess....they wont get me on something like that....that's pretty dirty imho...50% sale, but limited so we dont know how many and imagine if any other business did that or a store....%50 off but you dont know till you get there if you get the deal..and its not cause they ran/sold out....
  2. I have ALWAYS saved money booking in USD for flights and cruises(and usually flying from the US)...you must not be looking in the right places..I think I have booked once with Costco for the gift card in CAD..lol...and you dont need a US bank account or credit card either..lots of ways around it.. our dollar has been on the up swing as well.....I hope no one on the CERB is booking cruises anyways..wait till their tax bill hits next spring..lol…...
  3. I know all that quite well..but I can drive there and save myself thousands in airfare....and I am not going to quartine for 14 days....so yes, once the land border opens I will head down.
  4. Great news..really going to try to get down to do a cruise on her once the borders open for us...dont want to miss out on the chance!
  5. I wouldn't count on any Canadian travel agents having jobs soon...I would look to book and deal with a US company 100%!!!!! I deal with a few from a cpl different sites that offer the best pricing but no one that I am buddy buddy with or have a working relationship with to recommend.
  6. Dont want to ruin it for you..but if they wont let dying people see a family member...they aren't letting 3000 tourists off to explore the waterfront...they have just started now making masks mandatory in some provinces where they have ZERO active cases...so yeah...dont count on Canada for vacation plans any time soon!
  7. Sold out???!!!..I have never heard of a drink package being sold out....7 months in advance.....that doesn't make sense....they upped the price which makes much more cents....lol I would be booking NOTHING at this point..I am not giving any travel companies my $$ to sit on and then wait mths to get it back.... good luck!
  8. Nothing yet...but our medical chief officer has stated 2-3 years to expect shut down and restrictions…..some of our provinces have had ZERO deaths and ZERO hospitalizations or like 2 ppl and we still cant do anything.....I predict a huge spike this winter in Canada which will push us back another year or two....it appears the US is getting ahead of us now when it comes to testing and equipment and vaccine trials..... But yeah, if I was a betting man I would defn say 2021 is a write off...I thinking 2022 before they start to allow Canadians to travel and tourists to come here....an
  9. Wont be any coming to Canada for the next few years for sure.....
  10. Careful...Canada is very restricted and closed right now...and even though Americans can drive through to get to Alaska..be prepared to be harassed at the very least and have locals call the police on you and follow you through Canada. Then you have to deal with lots of rules about masks, social distancing and many places closed as a result of Covid…..I would be way of making ANY plans that involve Canada for the next 2-3 years as our chief medical officer has essentially said Canada is closed and will be closed for years to come, even if a vaccine comes out.
  11. Wouldn't surprise me....Our chief medical office stated it could be 2-3 years before things get back to normal in Canada..till then expect masks, social distancing, business closed, borders closed and travel restricted…...I wouldn't book a damn thing that involves Canada for the next year or two at least... its crazy and insane...but seems like most sheep, I mean people in Canada are on board...…..
  12. Saw some pics/vids ppl had posted..seemed pretty quiet and dead...must be operating at a greatly reduced capacity?!
  13. Its one of my fav things that Royal does....every CD or ship has their own spin on it.....now some are doing 80's and 90's too.....those are always dont miss items for me on the Cruise Compass!
  14. Cant.....wish it was that easy....not allowed....perhaps If I went to Mexico and snuck in that way..lol If anyone knows a way to legally get me down there...sign me up!....ha
  15. Right..and still quarantine for 14 days once back....that's the kicker. So to cruise for a week, plus the day or two before and after..and the 14 days when you get back...a one week cruise turns into almost a 30 day "vacation"...not at all reasonable or feasible for 90% of the population or more in Canada....who knows about other countries.... But that's just one factor....the bigger issue will be re-occurring outbreaks, hotspots, no vaccine...then a vaccine but not enough people getting it to make it effective....
  16. Yeah....I have seen that..but with 14 day quarantine periods, not many can afford that kinda vacation time to go anywhere. With potential 2nd waves, no vaccine till 2021 etc...I just cant see cruising resuming on a large(normal)scale for at least a year.
  17. Labadee is scary as hell!....While I havent done others, going over some tree tops and through some forests sounds much more easy and more relaxing than a 600ft drop off into nothing!....I did it with others who had zip-lined before and they agreed that this was much more intense... But enjoy! :)
  18. Holland America Just announced all cruises cancelled through Dec 15th.. Anyone who thinks cruising will start before 2021 is sadly mistaken..I am thinking possibly even mid 2021 before I would be willing to even take a chance based on how things are still going..
  19. Yeah..sorry...off by the day....the first 29 days of April not there...so really....it's May...
  20. Not sure how that will work..the NHL system seems to work well for them so far...although a whole season would not be reasonable to be played like that.
  21. They are now suggesting it could be 2-3 years in Canada before they allow us to be normal again..insane! Now, not even a vaccine is good enough for the Canadian government to allow its citizens to move about and live freely......something has got to give at some point..its beyond ridiculous
  22. Odyssey is delayed till May 2021 now I believe.....just keeps getting worse
  23. Odyssey is delayed now till May of 2021 I believe....this just keeps going like a broken record.....
