  1. I'm trying' have faith too. Right now we're planning like it's happening. Mike
  2. My cruise is May 31st. I'm not very hopeful.
  3. Our cruise starts May 31st. With the latest news, there's a good chance our cruise will be canceled. Mike
  4. RCI's tweet says March 14th to April 10th, 2020. Mike
  5. I did noticed that. It's certainly an interesting exercise to get the correct dates for certain things. Not to mention sites like cruisetimetables are clearly using the generic data for sailings making it difficult to post accurate info. And yet, you were able to easily get the correct dates for an individual sailing. You'd think itinerary sites would do that too. Mike
  6. Interesting. This morning this was what I found. I just checked a few minutes ago and it still shows the Indiy at CocoCay on the 3rd. What the heck is RCI's website doing?
  7. Holy Cow!!!!! It turns out that there will be three ships in Coco Cay on June 3rd. The Oasis, Independence, and Majesty. I just checked RCI's website for the itineraries and verified they are all going to be there on the 3rd. We'll be on the Oasis. That's 11742 to 14026 potential passengers between the three ships.
  8. A little spackle and some paint and it's good as new. 🤣
  9. That's true. The captain always has command of his ship...even when the Pilot is on board. The Pilot is only responsible for navigation...a responsibility that the captain can relieve the Pilot of. At least that's how it works in the US. I'm not sure how those laws work internationally. http://www.americanpilots.org/document_center/Perils_of_Piloting_Civil_Liability_and_Criminal_Prosecution.pdf Mike
  10. That may not not quite true...at least not in the US. I'll have to look it up but I believe maritime law on this is the same everywhere. The captain is always in command of and responsible for his vessel. However, the captain turns over navigation duties, and thus the responsibility, to the pilot. And, there's a very good reason for that. The Harbor/Docking Pilot is the expert in local navigation; navigation that can change based on time of year, weather, traffic, etc. When on board the navigation crew must follow the commands of the Pilot. This is why the Harbor or Docking Pilot is legally liable/responsible for any mishaps or injuries that result as a result of their duties. The captain can relieve the pilot for being impaired or incompetent but he had better be absolutely sure prior to doing so. When I was in the Navy the Harbor Pilot came on board from a tug and had navigational control of our submarine. I can't see how that would be different today. Of course, I've been wrong before. 😁 Mike
  11. IIRC, there is a height restriction (≈190 ft) for the Panama Canal due to the Bridge of the Americas. That eliminates Oasis & Freedom classes...not sure about the others but at least the older ships should be able to make it. I thought remember reading that the Anthem can though. Mike
  12. I have all of that. Even a programmable remote that once I find out what make/model the TV is I can hook it up to my laptop and download the right code set. Although, we don't spend much time in our room. 😁 Mike
  13. Can you stream to TVs on other ships? That would be cool.
  14. Camo Duck says Quack!

  15. What I find interesting is that Carnival has 15% more passengers than RCI and yet RCI made 56% more money than Carnival. Mike
