  1. This Order shall continue in operation until the earliest of three situations. First, the expiration of the Secretary of Health and Human Services’ declaration that COVID-19 constitutes a public health emergency. Second, the CDC Director rescinds or modifies the order based on specific public health or other considerations. Or third, 100 days from the date of publication in the Federal Register.
  2. Just to be clear, I did not make the refund statement. The refund statement was made by my TA as noted in red. I cancelled online with the Big Box TA. Below is the confirmaton they provided: Most refunds require 7 to 10 business days to process. If you do not see your refund after 10 business days, please call 1-866-XXX-XXXX to speak with a XXXXXX Travel expert. I am on business day #10 and will continue to watch my charge account with no refund yet. Also, Celebrity is still showing my April 12 sailing as an open reservation just like the ship is still sailing. We all know that is simply not true.
  3. Hello, I always enjoy reading you posts and your voice of calm realism. I hope to cruise with you someday! Stay healthy!

  5. Yes, I agree... right now option 1 and 4 are exactly the same @ 38.4%. I guess reality is setting in that it may be a long time before we see "normal" again.
  6. Quite an interesting and diverse response for a group of mostly die hard cruising fans. After the news of the Eclipse today and the other ships with new virus cases, the industry has a pretty big black eye to deal with. It is time for me to take a break and I imagine there will be a glut of vacant rooms to book down the road.
  7. Back in San Diego... Virus findings on board. 😰 https://fox5sandiego.com/news/local-news/passenger-on-cruise-ship-docked-in-san-diego-test-positive-for-coronavirus/
  8. Disney Resorts have ceased taking new reservations until June 1, 2020. I can imagine there are some folks who will book with Celebrity in hope of a cancelation and getting a 125% FCC just making the financial situation worse for Celebrity. I also understand the need to collect deposits and create bookings for the balance sheet. It just seems like the Cruise Lines are premature allowing new bookings as early as May 13, 2020. What do you think?
  9. Great question... I appreciated reading the replies that actually answered the question.
  10. That was a very responsible email from Celebrity. Most of the people in my life that have recently returned from any travel have practiced self quarantine. Be safe... Stay Healthy....
  11. Love the replies! I have also found reading RCL blog, many questions are answered. "Royal Caribbean Blog" Take care....
  12. So very sad... People are loosing ther lives daily now. We simply don't have enough medical resources for the potential wave of people needing care. The cruise industry is on verge of collapse. People across the world have lost their jobs. Cruise ship employees are being sent home. Retirement accounts have been destroyed. Kids can't go to school. All this discussion about how to best benefit from this travesty makes me so sad. Today I am thinking about how I can financially, emotionally or spiritually help a family member, friend or neighbor. I have prepaid over 1-years worth of services from several of the local merchants in my community. I hope they are still healthy and in business when this virus has been contained. Should their business fail, I surely don't expect them to pay me back. I realize the merchant in my town is different that a major corporation, but you get the idea. Cruise lines employ people who need to feed their families around the world. I am remembering all the smiling faces that have taken care of me while on vacation... The memories are forever. Can you imagine being in their position today? There must be a way we can help out all those wonderful people that have contributed to our happiness while on a cruise ship. I hope someday to meet some of you in person and we can toast to surviving this virus and celebrating with our extended cruise family. Time to pray if prayer works for you.
