We have a Transatlantic on April 12.  We still debating if to cancel or not????

I was actually trying to decide whether or not to book it today; since the ship docks in Southampton, getting home through London wouldn't be a problem -- though I can't help but think if this travel ban continues, British airports will become quite crowded.

It's an odd situation -- the flight is nearly as expensive as the cruise itself.

Me and my fiance have been planning our cruise for like a year now for our honeymoon in the beginning of April. Have been monitoring the situation and are really on the fence on if we should go or not. I really wanna just go. My only fear is that the ship wont be allowed to go to the ports I've been so excited about (the Bahamas) but well see how the next few weeks go. Fingers crossed for us and for every experiencing this inconvenience.

Prices are very cheap right now. My concern it's exactly that, if travel ban eventually applies to UK also.

We are still going on our FOS sailing in May. I hate to say it but my excitement for our cruise is gone at this time. May is a long time away and things are changing daily. I'm not  worried about us since we are not high risk.  My concern would be bringing it home to someone that is high risk.  Praying for normalcy soon.   

Same here. My excitement about going on the 12 day Transatlantic April 12, isn't the same.

I'm not cancelling my cruise as it isn't until June 15th to Bahamas . If RC cancel then I'll get the cost back or any problems and my credit card company will be liable.

I had pre paid for the Drinks Package though which I have cancelled today. Gets me $750 back in 2 - 3 days. If the cruise does go ahead I'm sure the drinks package price will tumble as they try to lure folks back on board. I'll buy again then. 

Win-Win imo

I will post today as I go through the process what’s it’s like. 
 

we just boarded serenade in lauderdale. It was no problem at all and there will only be 1,300 people on board!!  The temp scan was super easy and my 5 and 2 year old didn’t mind it at all. They just used a little handheld scanner and out a green light on the forehead. Check in was easy. Going to be a great 10 days!

April 19th on Harmony Eastern Caribbean  - will wait and see how things are going up until the week before. Hopefully with all the aggressive steps being taken we will see some topping out of new cases by then.  if not, will play it safe and cancel. 

Sep Allure Mediterranean out of Barcelona - this is the wife and her 80 year old mother. Obviously will cancel if any risk to her mother but waiting to do anything. 

Dec Oasis Eastern Caribbean - hoping the virus does not regain strength in the cooler months at end of the year. 

Our family has four 2021 cruises booked (Feb - May - July - Sep).  2 Caribbean and 2 Europe.  Not doing anything with those at this time.

Leaving tomorrow on Symphony.  To anyone going on a cruise in the near future, I would suggest shutting off your social media,  as the shit talking crap you’ll take from your friends and acquaintances will be too much.

i thought we had up until 48 hours to cancel cruise, and wife and I were mulling it over yesterday morning only to learn that we had to cancel midnight the night before.  That made our decision for us.  Not throwing 8k down the drain to avoid a disease that is EVERYWHERE now.   
 

The world has lost its mind, but I choose to use logic and common sense.  With everything I’m hearing about RC’s steps to screen passengers and precautions on the ship, at this time I feel more confident and safer  taking a cruise than a trip to the local Costco

Now THATS how you take it as it comes....highlight the positives. 

Just hit the Florida state line.  Staying at mother in laws in Fort Myers tonight, and if RC ends up cancelling then we’ll look for an Air BnB in the keys or somewhere else for a bit.  Either way I’m not going back to the cold until next weekend!

We were on that same cruise but have canceled. Have you thought about flying home now?  Hopefully you are not stuck there.
