    Nude beach on French side...big let down.   And by letdown I’m referring to what gravity does to older humans. 
    We found ourselves there by accident. Some things can’t be unseen.

    This would be good point to give a friendly reminder to keep this thread relevant to cruising.  We have already had to delete a few posts in this thread.

    SPS got a reaction from KirstenCapeTown in Internet cafes?   
    If I recall, We paid on the home page using my SeaPass on Grandeur to Check-In and get boarding passes for our next day flights. There were a couple tiers of service available. I believe, one hour was $9.99, a full day was $18.99. You're issued log-in info to the ship's internet service upon paying.
    While we only paid for the one hour, I found that we had wi-fi access for about 4-6 hours on my phone.

    SPS got a reaction from mom2mybugs in Is there a ship you won’t sail on again?   
    I've never had a ship that I wouldn't sail on again. I do have an itinerary that I wouldn't sail on just based on the time of year went.
    (Southeast Coast/Bahamas out of Baltimore in January, Cold and rough seas)
    Right now, though, I'd take ANY ship with ANY itinerary. It's been one full year since we've cruised and were supposed to be on our way to Miami TODAY for a 9-Night Southern Caribbean. 🙁

    @princevaliantus you're also missing the fact other ships in the fleet are not delayed until Q4 2021.
    Very few, if anyone, ever thought the entire fleet of Royal Caribbean ships would be sailing by the end of this year.
    The question isn't when will every ship be back in service, rather, which ships will return to service first.

    Okay, so Magic was to dry dock in 2021 and has to since it's her 10 year ( I sailed Magic once). Paradise, being an older ship has to dry dock more frequently and is also due in 2021 (I sailed a sister ship).  Valor is due and must be done in 2021 because, well it's that time since her last dry dock was in 2016 (I've sailed Valor twice).
    So here is the sugar coated version - these ships have to dry dock in 2021.  No choice, must be done or they won't have their certificates to sail.  Not a lot of sugar, just facts.
    Here is the pandemic reality version - these ships must dry dock in 2021 so why put them into service (if that is even possible) only to yank them out of service to dry dock?  Wouldn't it be better to launch a restart with ships that don't need servicing in 2021?    
    Carnival has more ships in the fleet so why not avoid restarting, as this elusive restart date moves again and again, with ships that must go to dry dock, when, ship yards are also impacted by the pandemic?  It's not like shipyards are doing business like they always have, they are most likely telling ship owners "we have no idea when we will return to normal" like so many businesses in these very strange times.
    Sorry, I don't see a conspiracy here.

    Just stock more locally sourced rum and things will be just fine! 😁
    But, seriously, this is something I hadn't considered. I'm now wondering if additional provisioning will need to be done at each port stop instead of stocking it all up front in Bridgetown.

    @MelKapsThanks for posting this. We are sailing on Odyssey in January of '22 and I was hoping to see the wine list ahead of time.
    I know my wife will want to stop by there some tastings.

    My 12 year old is in the Phase 3 Pfizer vaccine trial for children 12-15.  They are hopeful they the EUA will come in the next couple of months for that group.  I’m sure younger children will be longer, but they said the trials are moving along well.

    Does anyone think that $201M for three cruise ships and all the branding sounds rather cheap?
    I know they are smaller/older ships, but still.
