  1. Im so happy you guys have been ok! If the boat had 2000 passengers and there were 50 in the "covid room" the chances of getting it are still low ish. this hasnt deterred us from cruising and will hopefully be doing the 7 night pacific coastal in sept if all goes well.
  2. The wifi on serenade last week worked perfectly except coming through one ocean pass with high mountains. We streamed lots, facetimed, did it all. we regretted not bringing our apple tv.
  3. We were on serenade up to alaska and the surf and stream worked excellent. I could facetime and do whatever i wanted. It was definitely a bit slower than at home but still worked fine.
  4. I thought i packed too much, then we ended up getting covid and having to quarantine in the room and used everything. Better to be prepared these days.
  5. Totally. Windjammer lunch was our pig out on junk then the dinners in the dining room were real fine dining.
  6. We totally knew what we were signing up for, and that covid was a poissibility. Were fine with getting it. The quarantining in the room part is hard though.
  7. We were in the other wing 86-- i did see others from deck 8 in the covid disembarkment area after you all left the ship. We all had to leave last.
  8. Must be symphony because serenade docked on sunday not saturday (i was on it lol)
  9. Ya i mean thats not really sustainable or healthy for a kid to have junk at every meal. Im glad mine chose some stuff of the adult menu cause i didnt want him eating pizza and hot dogs for a week
  10. My almost three year old was the same on this last cruise. Most of his food was off the adult menu in the mdr. Shrimp cocktail, escargot, steak, apple blossom a la mode
  11. Its totally not possible as We fully did not go anywhere for 10 days before and he had to get a pcr test 3 days before the cruise and an antigen test on embarkation. Also he started getting symptoms on wednesday night which would put the incubation period monday when he spent the entire day at adventure ocean.
  12. We literally were so well taken care of on board that we dont even mind now that we can still work tomorrow. That was the only part of the experience that made my stomach sink and regret cruising. We knew the risks on board but didnt know about the quarantining. Well of course not, because silly RC sent us a printout that expired last summer.
  13. Ya to me and how full the boat was i was really surprised there wasnt more. Also my son was the only child in there so people with kids either arent testing and reporting or they arent getting it. Seems weird as we suspected he got it from adventure ocean.
  14. Hey ya we were actually all crammed into a room when we were trying ti disembark, and also counted the cabins on the list. Could have been a bit more or less but around 50. if we had really known the risk we wouldnt have cruised. also found out the 14 day quarantine info they gave us was almost a year outdated. We do not have to quarantine.
  15. Editing this because i was wrong. 75 people and 50 staterooms.
  16. On our ship serenade the sitting fee was free you just paid for the photos
  17. Not scientifically backed nor does that make any sense. Im sick of these no science rules.
  18. Ya he literally hasnt had symptoms for 2 days now. We are still on the boat waiting to disembark. We will be the last ones off with the other covid people. I will try to count and get an estimate of how many of us were in quarantine.
  19. We get a pro rated refund of our cruise. our room service always came when it was supposed to. You have set meal times when you are in quarantine. They call you 2 hours before the meal time to collect your order. Then your food comes at 7, 12:30, and 6:15. Ours was always on time or early. Annoying part was for breakfast they didnt collect the orders the night before. So we would get an early wake up call each morning. The food was always fine. Not dining room quality as i suppose it sat for awhile. But still the same food just lack of presentation and freshness. you could also order outside of meal times and they would bring it to you about 30 mins later. You could order anything off any menu during times when they were open.
  20. Do pac hwy or peach arch border crossing. Not douglas.
  21. We live a 40 min drive from the cruise terminal so we are allowed to quarantine at home. According to the canadian government we have to quarantine for 14 days once we disembark even though we are negative and fully vaccinated. Quite ridiculous and literally going to put us into poverty as we are a young family that got a great deal on a cruise, havent ever gotten to travel before or do anything like this. We dont get paid unless we work no vacation or anything. So we were able to plan for one week off unpaid, which has now turned into three. The rules dont make sense and i dont agree with them but i still have to follow them.
  22. Because our son is positive and we are in the same cabin the whole cabin has to isolate. cabin answered above i dont want to answer the third one to protect the cruise employee who told us this. I dont know exact numbers only that they are "overwhelmed" with it. i looked on the cdc website yesterday and we are level orange. It may have increased today.
  23. He had a high fever and started coughing. I brought tests from home. Tested him and self reported it to the cruise line. Wanted to do the right thing by reporting it and trying to make sure no one else got it from us.
