Nice!

I was originally going to be sailing on Anthem on 11/21, but because of a change in my schedule, I'm moving to Harmony on 11/22. Waiting to hear back from my TA about what cabin I end up with.

What happened to Anthem Sailing?

Oh, Anthem's still sailing; I just found out earlier this week that a work/school-related thing got moved from Dallas in August to Orlando in November, and it ends on 11/22 at noon and Harmony sails from Port Canaveral on 11/22 at 4:30, so... 😃

Was hoping to get away end of Nov however UK government has basically made that impossible with new legislation stating that anyone ( national or foreigner ) MUST register and then self isolate for 14 days upon arrival in country, so this would mean taking another 2 weeks vacation just to be locked up in my house with local authorities doing random checks to make sure im sticking to the rules

This applies to anyone arriving at any airport, Dock or ferry terminal

Hope to be on the Grandeur on Thanksgiving day.

We are also but are having second thoughts. The health aspects are certainly one major question but I dislike the thought of masking and distancing on what is supposed to be a vacation. I can't see myself enjoying the cruise under those circumstances, however necessary they might be, so why bother and waste the money? We have been cruising over Thanksgiving numerous times but we might have to miss it this year.

Good Afternoon Gang,

Who's sailing for Turkey Day 2020?

Will be sailing (fingers, toes and anything else crossed for good luck) on the Indy B2B starting 11/19 (it's not my dream come true 3 Weeks on the Oasis that got cxl'd from COVID 19) . 

Scored the corner aft 1400 for both cruises.

We’re keeping it in the RCCLtd. Family for thanksgiving. Trying Celebrity for the first time and sailing Apex. 
At this point, who knows, it may be her inaugural 😛

Thanks for the reassurance -- that's how it looked to me, but it's good to hear! And perfectly timed, too...my TA emailed me just now to double-check with me, noting the travel distance and potential time constraints. 🙂

We are scheduled to sail on the Odyssey 20 November 2020 out of Port Everglades. (8 nights) Was so looking forward to this trip but it is very possible she may not even be ready by then. If she sails we do plan to be on her. We have a Jr. suite with an over sized balcony, we were planning on spending additional time in the cabin. We LOVE sailing for Thanksgiving, what a wonderful vibe the ship has during this time! Everyone appears and articulates thanks and graciousness, a lovely experience.

Hopefully they give you guys plenty of notice when/if Odyssey gets delayed. I’d guess right now that Thanksgiving bookings are lighter than last year so hopefully you guys have time to make alternate arrangements.

I’m with you on this one. We had never done it before last year and now have cruises booked for the next two thanksgivings. It’s great as it still leaves vacation days for later on and only two days off of school for my daughter.

Can someone give me a rundown/elevator pitch for a thanksgiving cruise? Trying to pitch it to about 30+ people for 2021.

Not sure my reasons apply to everyone but a big one for me is I use two less vacation days because I already have Thanksgiving and Black Friday off.  Our oldest is home from college so we have a babysitter to leave our littles with also.  We live in Western PA and it is a great break for us before we get set into a cold and snowy winter.  Everyone is more friendly because they are gearing up for the holidays.  For big families it is great to have your whole family together on a ship so you can enjoy the time together.  It's a chance to make lasting memories with members of your family.  It gives you more to be thankful for; being together as a family , that you have family, that you all have the ability to afford a cruise, that you can discover new places (ports) together. No one has to cook or clean and instead can concentrate on those they are with.
