  1. Unfortunately I have not been there...but @michellemay be able to help you with this one!
  2. The stocks fell pretty hard intraday. On the day they were up nicely before the news.
  3. Just heard on CNBC that the CDC is basically ignoring any communication and guidance from CLIA and the Mayor of Miami recently and not changing their stance on the Conditional sail order. Instead of having cruises lifted by July under certain conditions, the CDC (aka Can't Do Cruising / Can't Do Crap) has stated they will not change or lift any restrictions until November 1st of this year. Bunch of BS if you ask me. I think it's time to seriously start considering cruises departing not from a US port. The CDC is not on the cruise line side and it's so blatantly obvious. They allow all other travel modes but not cruising even though it is the safest w/protocols etc. Cruise stocks took a big hit intraday including RCL. I hate the CDC ?
  4. So exciting to see a ROLL CALL!!!! I am not on this cruise Matt but I can't wait for you and so many of our other cruising friends to be on it! Woooohoooooo!!!
  5. I am so so excited for Navigator coming out to the west coast out of LA! Funny story to share. Back in 2019 my family and I wanted to go to the Mexican Riviera, but I knew Royal didn't sail here...bummed out, I looked at my other options. Norwegian Star..nah, smaller ship... oh how about Princess? Never been on Princess so...booked on the Royal Princess. Had a great time, mostly because it had the word "Royal" in it ? Booking Navigator on Monday March 29th out of LA in Summer 2022!! Wooooooooohoooooo!
  6. I won't be booking for June-August since I am not yet vaccinated and have another cruise booked on Symphony in Feb 2022 but will definitely be checking out the itineraries and options + prices tomorrow! Yay for more cruise bookings!! I AM booking Navigator out of LA on Monday 3/29 though ?
  7. So exciting! This reminds me of a Black friday sale where everyone is waiting for the deal to be released and then boom! Gone in 60 seconds.
  8. CDC extending to Oct 31st was inevitable, it's just a waiting game really.. honestly, consider it very lucky if they open up sailing this year, even with that document they submitted... how much you wanna guess no one at the CDC has read through it? CDC has been out to ignore the cruise lines... every other aspect of the travel industry is up and running, airlines, Disneyworld, Vegas, etc etc, but no cruises even though they are going to probably be cleaner than any other place... these no sail order extensions are just annoying. I know they are doing it on a month to month basis, but as we cruise fans need to stop hoping that it will be put to an end. Seriously, it's getting old. I am waiting for the day they just come out and say, okay, it is lifted, rather than giving people false hope. I cancelled my Nov 2020 cruise 5 months ago knowing it wasn't going to happen and if it was, I wouldn't want to experience that onboard experience, just sounds terrible and un-vacation like. I am keeping my fingers crossed things look better by Spring 2021 and a vaccine is out (that is effective) so we can go on our cruise to Alaska in July 2021. And by then, hopefully we can go cruising without a mask and screenings. Let's see what happens!
  9. Well said! I agree with all of this. The screenings will be happening throughout the day as well I imagine, or at least when you get back to the ship from a port. Bottom line is we know this, cruising will not look the same for awhile! I don't think we've ever needed a vaccine as bad as we do now. The world is falling apart, and it's embarassing to see the US be the laughing stock of the world since cases are increasing like crazy. I bet you if cases were under control here, cruising would've started by September, but nope.
  10. Probably more cancellations. If they go bankrupt it won't be announced until they are in the worst case scenario which is Spring 2021 from what I am hearing.
  11. Man, the trend is definitely not good. I had a feeling no cruises until at least Spring 2021 which is why we cancelled November 2020 and April 2021. Hoping that summer season to Alaska in July 2021 happens if not, the cruise industry is long gone and will never return the same as it was. I miss cruising.
  12. It isn't working on Chrome but it is for Firefox ?
  13. Odd, I am on Chrome and it is still showing the old format.
  14. Website looks the same to me. No new updates.
  15. Just reading this not-so-live-blog now and wow I really enjoyed this @rshov Excellent writing and glad to hear you and your fiance had a wonderful time! We are currently planned on Oasis in April 2021 but given everything going on we aren't really sure if it'll happen. Going with a group of 30... 16 adults and 14 kids including our little monster. Should be fun. Thanks again for a wonderful review! Looking forward to reading your June 2021 Odyssey blog!
  16. Harmony of the Seas group cruise 9/16/17 :)
  17. Did you have fun? A lot of the chatter I've been hearing on the Internet is that many amenities and basic things had issues...hopefully they got them fixed? Definitely looking forward to your review on here or CC if you decide to write one :)
  18. Totally agree! We booked our cruise to Alaska in July 2016 way back in January 2015, and just now booked a cruise in September 2017 in May of 2016 :)
  19. Thanks for sharing your Day 2 with us Kat, love the pics and all the scopes and tours you did today! woohoo Enjoy Labadeeeeeeeeee tomorrow!!
