    Hi everyone, I know we get heated debating which dessert is the best one to order, or if a balcony room is worth it, but let's keep these basic rules in mind when chatting here.
    No profanity No personal insults No political discussion No debating religion A good joke about Canada, is always welcome.

    Oh crap. I turn 70 in July.  Another dam form to fill out. Just put it on the stack.  We just moved and so many forms to fill out. I`ll just get an on line Dr. degree and sign the form.  I will use the name Dr. WHO.  Wise Health Official.  No worse than some of the other fake news out there. I will have to work on sloppy penmanship to make it look official. Bon Voyage

    Yes it is.  I’ve seen some pretty sketchy stuff over the years.  I just look the other way and keep on moving.

    Call your doctor and ask him/her to prep all your records to transfer to another doctor immediately.

    This too shall pass.  Way overblown. TOO much hype.  Never any mention to the thousands that die each year from the flu. Or other diseases for that matter.  Truly is amazing how all of the red tape is being overturned or bypassed.

    I have said it in a couple of conversations recently in regards to cruising.
    I have absolutely no concern about Coronavirus itself, from all accounts medically it is basically "harmless" to me .. I do not have a compromised immune system so its basically the common cold. 
    I do have concern about getting stranded in quarantine for weeks because everyone else is freaking out about it.
    So indirectly i do have a concern about Coronavirus not because its dangerous but because it could get me quarantined.

    I wondered the same thing.  I think there is a protocol in place that requires to Capt. to report any sick pax or crew.  My guess is that, in the past, they didn't really worry that much about this issue, but b/c of recent events, they (the ports) are now enforcing it strictly.

    Exactly - overblown.  Reaction to people having the run-of-the-mill flu is closing a port is an overreaction.  This pretty much states what a lot of people are saying.

    If crew having the flu is the new standard for being allowed to enter a port or not, be prepared for a lot of missed ports.
     
    But as many state here..nothing to see or worry about here..everything is just normal and overblown.....
     
    We all love to miss stops on our cruises don't we.....

    The RCCL stock OBC is not always applicable and often difficult to apply. Be very careful purchasing stock for the purpose of getting OBC.

    It usually is the same comedian and often the same show (except one will usually be family-friendly and the other may be for adults only) but the reason that they will not allow you to book more than 1 is because they don't allow you to book more than 1.
    If you want to go to a second show you can always do that but it would be on a standby basis.  The same is true for any of the headline shows (Broadway shows) that take reservations, too.  I guess they want to make sure that everyone has a chance to see the show so they only allow you to reserve seats once.

    fonemanbob reacted to WAAAYTOOO in Lesson Learned   
    The truth is, you CAN rebook your cruise right up until a couple of days before your sail date, but since final payment date has passed, you would be subject to the cancellation fee, which almost always negates any savings that you would realize by a new, lower cruise fare.  Frankly, there is not much that an agent could have done for you, either.  An agent is invaluable when it comes to making reservation changes BEFORE final payment date but there is little they can do for you once final payment date has passed.  An agent MAY have been able to help you get a good deal on an upgrade (maybe, maybe) but just realizing a savings from a now-lower cruise fare price....sorry, nope.
    I still think you are doing the right thing by going with a good TA in the future.  All sorts of bizarre things can and do happen where a TA is worth their weight in gold.  Our most recent cruise, Anthem of the Seas (8 Feb), where the ship was delayed for 3 days, was a perfect example.  My agent kept us up to date with changes that were happening, sometimes by the hour....and when our refunds came, she made sure they were correct and then transferred them to one of our already-booked cruises.  I would have HATED to worry about all of that stuff on my own while we were in a hotel waiting or after we [finally] boarded the ship.
