  1. I believe Quebec and Alberta are higher than the national average but 7 American States are higher than that. Some provinces and some states are much better at controlling the spread of covid. I was raving about our local situation with no new cases but now there is an explosion: from zero to 35 cases in a population of 100,000.
  2. As of Oct 29, USA is of course #1 with 27K cases per million, Canada Ranks 31st with 6K cases per million. https://www.covid-19canada.com/ https://www.covid-19us.live/
  3. I guess that the ship would be safe as long a passengers and crew do not come from Germany, France, Spain, Italy and the USA... and every other country that has spiking infection numbers. We are very content staying home away from the sea of troubles out there.
  4. My source is confidential. I did call a certain 800 number to get more information and the speculation was confirmed as in the talks stage. The impact on loyalty programs was unknown. I am not a travel agent other than booking cruises for my wife (who pays me well with TLC.) If the rumour is true, then Celebrity has a free focus group on CC. Since my crystal ball predicts no opening of borders between Canada and the USA until at least March 2021, we don't have to worry about booking any new cruises from any company. Celebrity has been opaque in potential changes affecting passengers who are already booked. We are living in an information vacuum. By the way I like my avatar.
  5. All of this speculation of getting points to reach a certain level may soon become meaningless. If the rumours are true that Celebrity will become an all inclusive cruiseline the perks are included in the fare, which I am sure will be substantially higher than now.
  6. Royal is offering cruises out of Singapore in Dec. on the Quantum... sailing at 50% capacity. https://www.cruiseindustrynews.com/cruise-news/23639-here-are-royal-caribbean-s-new-december-cruises.html
  7. We don't want to be in anyone's boat for the unforeseeable future.

  10. That's a true negative.😉
  11. The only perk that would make me book another cruise is free or low cost insurance to cover hospital bills, quarantine costs and flight evacuation home in case of covid infection on board. If the cruise lines can't guarantee a safe environment why would we put our lives at risk.
  12. "Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups." George Carlin. Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former. Albert Einstein Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience. Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. George Carlin "Anyway, no drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If we're looking for the source of our troubles, we shouldn't test people for drugs, we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed and love of power." ~ P. J. O'Rourke "A fool flatters himself, a wise man flatters the fool." ~ Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Just a few to make one smile... sadly..
