    Chadster reacted to SpeedNoodles in Alaska/Canada/New England 2020 cruises officially canceled.   
    I have credit with them, yes.  Unfortunately, it's JetBlue.  Anywhere I go from Minnesota I have to go through Boston.  We always fly direct because Mr SpeedNoodles is very afraid of flying.  Having to fly 3 1/2 hours and change planes for another flight may be worse than losing the money.  Or maybe we'll just do a trip to Boston for the hell of it.

    I hope they'll give you a credit or something!
    And ugh...okay, so my goal for 2021 is now New England/Canada; I think Alaska's waiting until 2022. Don't think I'll be rocketing from Pre-Gold to Diamond within the next 18 months after all.

    I'm kicking myself for buying my plane tickets a few weeks ago. I knew better. I'm probably out $700.

    Ditto for us.  I have already booked B2B Allure cruises in OCtober 2021.
    Bummed....

    Please remove my 10/11/20 sailing aboard Brilliance (the Group Cruise).
    Currently nothing to replace it with until I do some digging. 😕

    Chadster reacted to SpeedNoodles in Name something GOOD that has come out of the CV isolation.   
    The last 4 days have been hell.  Honestly, I've forgotten that Covid-19 was even a thing.  It's nice going back and reading some of these positive things (that I've missed over the last half weekish).

    I had both my college boys home, for the first time in four years, on my birthday and Mother's Day.

    Is it still allowed to bring service animals on-board? Mine’s well trained, I promise. 😂

    Chadster got a reaction from AnnetteJackson in TA's   
    I agree. Somebody told me recently that sometimes it takes a while to find "the one" when it comes to TAs, just like it does with other people in life. You want somebody who'll be an advocate for you and who'll do most of the heavy lifting. It's like with any business: if you're dissatisfied with the service, don't be afraid to shop around!

    Chadster got a reaction from Beci in MEI Travel Agency   
    When I first went with MEI, I just filled out the form and was assigned Sharla; she's definitely been fantastic! I was trying to move my Thanksgiving cruise from Anthem to Harmony this year due to a change in my availability and location for that week, and she spent 80 minutes on hold just for me...and got it done without any fuss!
    I honestly don't think you can go wrong with any of MEI's folks, based on all the stories I've read. And as for them being full-service, I think they're a go-to for RCCL/Celebrity/Disney simply because of their extensive experience with those cruise lines, leading to a bit more specialization. While I haven't tried to book a cruise with one of the other "Big 3" cruise lines through MEI, I certainly see no reason why they wouldn't be able to help you!

    Looks like you better have some words with @lauraodonnell86 🤣
    Well as it looks like our Sep 17 cruise won't go and were 117 days from that, our next scheduled cruise it 184 days out! 🥵

    Chadster got a reaction from alamode123 in QUIZ ON FACE MASKS: WOULD YOU CRUISE AGAIN IF   
    Yes, yes, and yes.
    In most places where masks are required in restaurants for dining in, the rules state "except when eating or drinking." I would assume the same would go for bars. Social distancing would be tricky, but Royal's smart -- they can figure it out.
    I'm sorry, but if I'm walking to and from somewhere on the ship and I encounter a large group, I'd prefer to have a mask. Maybe it's because I'm just used to wearing one now without much of a second thought.
    No, this doesn't make me weak. No, this doesn't make me "not a real man" (whatever the frick a "real man" is... 🙄) and no, it doesn't mean I'm living in fear.
    What it does mean? I'm sailing and following any and all rules RCCL puts in place -- you know, like I always do when I'm sailing, or just generally being a member of society.
