  1. When you follow the gimmick and figure out you've been baited...
  2. That's just your 'book your next cruise' reminder alarm mechanism...
  3. This dynamic may lead to the creation/establishment of what has been mentioned in the press as a 'vaccine passport' or some government/universal certification mechanism.
  4. And here I thought it was something else...
  5. I am now finding some TAs are quoting with the Classic Package included and other TAs are quoting the Premium Package included.
  6. Interesting to see Ms. Freed's comments that a relationship with a government body (the CDC) is a 'partnership'. She's delusional. The definition of a partnership includes the goal of mutual benefit. She has confused the concept with what is called 'regulatory risk' in the business world. The CDC has now proven themselves to be massive regulatory risk...businesses will find a way to reduce or eliminate regulatory risk (especially if it is overbearing), it just takes a little time.
  7. Under the category of 'I knew there had to be a catch!' I found out Celebrity's Always Included program is 'somewhat included'. Their new policy of Always Included includes 'a' drink package for all adults. BUT...said package is actually what they define as the 'Classic Package'. Seems there is a separate drink package called the Premium Package that is not included. OK...so does anyone know the upgrade cost to get the Premium Package?
  8. Many of us take no responsibility for many of the head scratching decisions being made. Banning cruise ships essentially 13 months out...well, I would like to understand the rationale for that. An extension now...for six months I could understand based on available data.
  9. https://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/covid-19-ban-on-cruise-ships-in-canadian-waters-extended-to-2022-1.5296063
  10. PR has had the requirement for a while. We "were" scheduled on a cruise out of PR and that was on the entry to the country requirement list.
  11. Canada now has the same requirement as of January 7th for anyone 5 years of age or older. Of course...there are countries where flights originate on a 'temporary exception list' where a test result is not required to board the plane...primarily because these countries do not have the capacity to test and provide results within 72 hours. Alas...flights have arrived from these countries where the entire flight - all rows - has been identified as potentially exposed to C19. Even with a negative test a 14 day quarantine on return is required.
  12. Just landed in my inbox today...looks like a go.
  13. Hang on a minute... Your first post says "So we made what we thought was the best decision and canceled our trip." Your second post says: "If things were different and we canceled then I can see them keeping the deposit."
