I Can't wait till all these threads are buried deep in the boards and we are all discussing which excursions are the best, wether paying for the upgrade cabin is worth it, and should dress code being

We are driving to the ship now! 10 day on serenade! Can’t wait

According to my account, I sail in 3 days! I better get packed!

Just curious on people’s thoughts on not canceling their up coming cruises! Still plan on going next Sunday... I hope anyways! 

Stay safe

We're still planning on going on our Freedom cruise on March 22. The entire family is health (cross our fingers it continues), so no concerns for us.

Supposed to sail Apr. 04. We have adopted the wait and see philosophy.  Too many unknowns. My wife is a nurse and faces potential self-quarantine upon return, which would force our hand. With the way things are developing with reaction, its looking like EVERYTHING is being canceled.  Princess and Viking have suspended operations.....sneaking suspicion is others will follow suit.

See I think only those will close down.. Princess has a PR nightmare and their guests are mostly elderly.. Viking sails mostly in Europe so that makes sense..

@Relasky28, not only am I #stillgoing I have just booked another sailing. So I trust my gut and in addition to my 3 previous sailings 28 June 20 Harmony, 03 August 20 Mariner, 01 August 20 Allure and I just booked 20 November 20 Odyssey I have faith in RCCL we won't sail if it isn't safe and I have been stalking that Thanksgiving sailing since forever. Personally using good judgement and trying to keep the hysteria out of my life and yes I am (OLD) Be safe everyone, happy sailing!!

I'm still planning on Liberty at the end of May, but will re-evaluate the week prior.  

Worst case scenario: we get quarantined and use up all of my vacation causing me to miss my big family cruise in November. (I'm not really concerned about the virus itself)

Booked on Navigator sailing 4/6.  I'm assuming one of two things will happen that will prevent us from cruising:

1. Our kids school district picks up the new local trend of requiring any kids that leave the country to take a 14 day admin leave from school.

2. Royal Caribbean will follow in Viking and Princesses footsteps and shut down operations for a period of time.

Case 1 will probably lead to us using "Cruise with Confidence" to get a future credit.

Case 2 may lead to a complete refund of the trip, so we'll wait and see since we'd prefer that.

We'll hold out until one or the other happens, if not, we may still consider the "social distancing" strategy to slow the spread of the virus and cancel the cruise ourselves.  None of us are in high risk groups and we've got a good chance of staying safe with precautions.  But I think we'll also have to consider the possibility of inadvertently spreading the virus and the stigma of traveling when the guidance is social distancing for the good of the rest of the US and people in high risk categories.  We, like most, were really looking forward to the trip and that makes me lean towards "I'm going no matter what , we'll be fine" but I think we need to consider the big picture and what's best for everyone.  I also reserve the right to change my mind again based on how the next few weeks go.  Guess we'll see...

8-3-20 Independence sailing is hopefully far enough out that we will have a handle on this virus.  Hoping there’s truth that the virus doesn’t like warm temps. and humidity.  

Did you hear that from NCL?...

#stillgoing but my cruise sails this Sunday and I'm terrified RCCL may end up hitting the panic button, most likely while I'm en route.

That is my fear as well.  I am going to call them first thing in the morning, because they need to tell me before I get started traveling to the port.
