  1. Private islands are not independent countries but rather part of an existing country like Bahamas or Haiti and still subject to their rules and regs.
  2. Very strict if you are 70 years old or older. Might not even get on the ship.
  3. Call your PCC with the Latitudes # of the receiver and have him/her do the switch. Have the receiver mail you a check or do the PayPal transfer.
  4. So I could use a note dated in 2013 guaranteeing my health for the next 6 years?
  5. What is the time requirement, 7 weeks? 7 months? 7 years?
  6. Exactly. This year I spent two months in the Philippines before having our February Quantum cruise cancelled. So I would have had to have a doctor in the Philippines sign my ok to cruise note 7 days before the cruise, not allowing me to spend much time in Singapore or Hong Kong before the cruise. Can't wait to get my full refund of all planned cruises.
  7. I never use straws, they put extra air into the digestive system. I have no preference as to which straws I don't use.
  8. Damn. Read the title, thought we were having a good old fashioned argument about the last plastic straw. Turns out just to be another boring insurance thread. We now return to our regular program.
  9. The same guy who wants to see the churches packed this Sunday?
  10. Speaking of Easter, was listening to Bob Dylan's Just Like Tom Thumb Blues. Currently stuck in the Philippines, but a lot of the song about Mexico applies to the Philippines. Goes like this: Well, you're lost in the rain in Jaurez and it's Easter time too And your gravity fails and negativity won't pull you through Don't put on any airs when you're down on Rue Morge Avenue They got some hungry women there who really make a mess out of you. If you see Saint Annie, please tell her thanks a lot I cannot move, my hands are all in a knot I haven't the strength to get up and take another shot And my best friend the doctor won't even say what it is I've got Sweet Melinda, the peasants call her the goddess of gloom She speaks good English as she invites you up into her room And you're so kind and careful not to go to her too soon For she'll take your voice and leave you howling at the moon. All the authorities they just stand around and boast How they blackmailed the Sargeant at Arms into leaving his post And picking up Angel who just arrived here from the coast Who looked fine at first but left looking just like a ghost Build a house on Prospect Hill, it's either fortune or fame You must pick one or the other though neither are to be what they claim And if you're looking to get silly you better go back to from where you came 'Cause the cops don't need you and man they expect the same I started out on burgundy but soon hit the harder stuff Everybody said they'd stand behind me when the game got ruff But the joke was on me, there was nobody even there to bluff I'm going back to New York City, I do believe I've had enough
  11. Been a terrible day. Flying from Manila to Seoul to JFK landing on 4/22/20, limo service told me he is not allowed to do business until May, all cabs and buses shut down also. Don't really woant to hitchhike to the Lehigh Valley after an 8 hour bus ride to Manila, 4 hour flight to South Korea, 5 hour layover, and then a 14 hour flight to JFK. Original 16 hour flight Manila to JFK on 4/21/20 was cancelled on 4/7/20 as Philippine Airlines cancelled all flights until May, not going to NYC until June. Best choice became Korean Air. Will probably see Cats on Oasis out of Cape Liberty later this year if they will allow a 70 year old sail without a note from his doctor, glad there is no intermission. Found Cats amusing 30 years ago.
  12. The point is that it was not required when the cruise was booked, so a refund should be in order, FCC is useless. So far RCI has cancelled 4 cruises, I have cancelled 2 outside of final payment, and one cruise 5/17/20 out of Amsterdam is just waiting for RCI to cancel. I expect refunds on all of them.
  13. Funny idea. On NCL one of the rules specifically says no selling of next cruise certificates. Lucky me got my two sold before that rule was enforced.
  14. I could hear it now. "Yes sir, that seat is not taken, but half the seats must remain vacant, I cannot let you sit there. There is another show tomorrow, perhaps you could come an hour early to get a seat."
