  1. Not surprising at all. I would actually expect that there would be more countries/places closing its borders. Although the article is specifically geared towards the cruise industry many countries are banning tourism itself for some time.
  2. I have a very strong belief that the CDC will extend because "they really feel they need to" and I am in agreement with them. IMHO I would rather have long term safety and stability in the cruise industry over our collective want to get back to 'normal'.
  3. All of this is predicated on the CDC not extending the order correct?
  4. Been on anthem a lot. Most times there has been some sort of ice cream attendant.
  5. Thanks @AGSLC5 Sadly I have watched your governor from afar so fully understand what you are saying. Doesnt the CDC have something to do with this? Is there any inkling from them if they will extend the order or not?
  6. I agree with you @WAAAYTOOO that I wonder if this is even remotely true that Carnical will begin sailing then. Sadly I think this is wishful thinking on everyones part. We are still deep in the pandemic worldwide. First, where will the ships sail from? No port in the US is prepared to open any time soon. And secondly, what countries are willing to recieve cruise ships? It would be interesting to see what itineraries Carnival is booking to what countries and then check those countries policies. I think this is a marketing move on thier part. Put it out there "We are sailing!" and guage interest and collect a lot of deposits with no real plan to be able to actually execute the cruise until the CDC approves them again. With all of the threads here about FCC's and the disposition of them I dont think I would be in a rush to give anyone any money on what is bascially wishful thinking right now. Maybe thier intentions are honorable here about sailing. I also have honorable intentions of winning the powerball jackpot every weekend but that hasnt happened yet either.
  7. should be on our way to Bermuda from a very cool and rainy Boston area. We have gone every year for 6 years and will certainly miss it. We usually plan for thanksgiving in the bahamas as well but I am not sure that is going to happen this year either. there is encouraging news about treatments and vaccines that have come out in the past few days. They will be the magic ticket for travel to open up for sure. we just need to hold out a little longer. I hope that the cruise industry is able to make it. Its a 50 billion dollar a year business. Too big to fail?
  8. Its a cruise lifestyle choice to me. We have been in the Jr Suites w/Large balcony many times and enjoy them. We are balcony people and not pool people. The pool is loud and croweded and the larger balcony offers us some peace and quiet and enough room to lounge/sun ourselves. We also enjoy the added space from the balcony. Sitting on a regular balcony can be a little cramped. If you are an occasional balcony person and dont plan to spend much time in your room then I would say its not worth the money for you. But if you are like us, enjoy a quiet dinner out there (even Johnny Rockets takeout) or prefer less crowded areas it can be great. We tend to book the 232 cabin on deck 10 or 9. We are not super fussy about the walk to wherever. We dont really have a preference on being close to anything in particular and we are mid ship so its all relative. Good luck booking and have a great trip. Thanksgiving on anthem is a great trip.
  9. Ahh from FOX News. That explains it. Must be trues then.
  10. I seriously doubt that any ship is going to be able to leave port anywhere before the fall so the question is almost moot. Experts even putting a hard maybe on domestic travel within the US until late summer and even into early fall. The PM of Canada has said the restriction could even last up to 18 months there. I am hopeful for your hypothetical but I think it will remain only a hypothetical for quite some time.
  11. I wish they would limit the amount of alcohol people can have one day. Nothing I cant stand more that obnoxious drunks on the pool deck
  12. Thanks @AGSLC5 I am actually not a fan of the older smaller ships anymore so thanks for that tip!
  13. Thanks!!! I was looking at a 2 BR on Anthem for Thanksgiving this year. Trying to be hopeful here. I am certainly willing to pay for a better cabin with a better matress at this point! I will look at the Enchantment sailings to see what she is offering,
  14. Thanks @WAAAYTOOO - from your posts on SC I was hoping you had insight actually. Sounds like it is a crap shoot on the matresses otherwise though which is what I thought 🙂
