  1. Yes, but only if they did not require me to be tracked and traced everywhere I went on the ship. If they did not require any mask mandates. If they did not require a virus test (which is proven to be false - positive). If they did not require a vaccine. Kind of like pre-mid-March 2020 when we were allowed to roam free on the ship with just our sea pass card, no mask, no testing, no vaccine. The good ole' days.
  2. Watch the Press Release page because in the past when they announce extension of cruise with confidence, it almost follows with cancellation of cruises and date.
  3. I anticipate cruise lines boycotting US ports because of the CDC impossible guidelines.
  4. I said this a while ago about the CDC and was silenced for doing so. I am glad someone else said it. I've delved through the 40 pages of new guidelines that they are requiring and I do not know how the cruise industry will ever sail out of US waters again. I would not be surprised if they just started sailing out of non-US ports altogether.
  5. Are then all the snowbirds stuck in Canada for the winter?
  6. Perhaps Royal extended it because they know there will be another no sail order forthcoming. This link shows who is being naughty and who is being nice according to who is reporting it: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/crew-disembarkations-commercial-travel.html
  7. Funny but not funny. When I called this morning to get a refund for my October 4th on Harmony, I too spoke to a Mary. I'm in customer service, so I know to play it super cool to these people. What is going on is not their fault at all. My Mary was patient, kind and very professional. She processed my refund with no issues at all. I made sure to let her know that I hoped everyone she speaks to today is very kind to her. I meant that!
  8. I had an October 4th sailing on Harmony. This is the 2nd cancellation. Ordered by the CDC. 100% over-reach. It's not about health or safety. It is about control. I opted for full refund. I don't care about 25%. I refuse to book another cruise until I see people boarding a ship with my own eyes. At Diamond level, and it is going to take forever to get to Diamond +. I sincerely hope that other people take a stand and stop booking. Maybe the cruise lines without holding money will then take a stand against the tyrants controlling them.
  9. If they do, I will require them to combine my points. I will be Pinnacle overnight.
  10. And from that article is this: Sailings canceled due to government order or regulations must be refunded within 180 days following a passenger request. 6 months? Really? I don't think so. It should be processed immediately and the credit be given on the original card issued within no less than 4-5 business days. The cruise lines want your money when they want it, but sit on your money when you want it back. If they were made to pay interest on your money held longer than 4-5 business days, I bet you would get it back on time.
  11. They can scrap all the Carnival ones. But that is my personal opinion.
  12. Where one goes, the others will follow suit. RCCL will follow, for sure. Especially after they are working with NCL on the protocols.
  13. How about instead of doing this on the ship, make it part of the online check-in process. Multiple screens with a short multi-choice quiz at the end that they have to pass before they can get their boarding documents. Include on the print-out of the boarding document MUSTER - DONE For those w/o computer the usual punishment at the terminal check-in counter. Longer check-in time. Give them a document that has to be signed which then will go on the ship.
  14. I have been on both, Sovereign in 1995 and Monarch in 2008. Sad to see this happen.
