  1. I was following the thread just fine. Thanks. I was commenting on your post " What surprises me is they allowed Americans at this time" I was pointing out that there were no Americans on the Covid filled Norwegian cruise, so it is not just an American problem.
  2. The original post was a Norwegian cruise filled with Norwegians. So it is not just a problem with Americans.
  3. This is really bad news. I assumed if you could just get tested prior things would work out.
  4. https://thepointsguy.com/news/covid-outbreak-hurtigruten-norway/?fbclid=IwAR3vtCpcrG1hxNU0WxilPAOVgjepvEoPX8BLhXcXNGsUMv6xPAlGy3JFQx4 If they can't pull it off, nobody can.
  5. I have been on a deck three cabin on the R ships. It is VERY quiet down there. Nobody is ever walking past the rooms so no noise. Our cruise hit a patch of rough seas and many people were sea sick. We had no issues in our cabin due to its location. The biggest downside in my opinion is the small porthole makes for a dark cabin.
  6. This includes our cruise, Riviera October 16th. We canceled several months ago but there were a number of people who are still on the roll call with crossed fingers, until now.
  7. Not that it matters at this point since, but it is still there. I just looked.
  8. Hawaii and Alaska have had a quarantine requirement for awhile now so add these to the list.
  9. One post there was talk of only taking on 400 passengers on the R class ships. Is this true? Who knows.
  10. I have been using this website as it is deaths per million so you can compare countries regardless of the size of the population. I have selected Belgium, Sweden, USA, & Brazil just for comparison. You can play around with it. However, since the USA is so large, geographically, it is more complicated than smaller countries. https://ourworldindata.org/grapher/covid-daily-deaths-trajectory-per-million?country=BEL~VGB~SWE~USA~BRA
  11. I know someone who canceled their fall cruise on June 1st and got their money back 3 days later. Which would have been what you would have expected if you canceled last year. It look me 6 weeks for the same fall cruise when I canceled in March. So you really never know. Those that got their money back quickly are likely to not post here.
  12. The important date is not when your cruise was set to sail but when you canceled. Have others with the same cancel due been receiving refunds? Edit - Sorry I just saw your later post.
  13. I am not trying to encourage you to not cancel, but you seem like you feel better if you have something planned. Wait a month, we will know more in a month.
  14. Not an Oceania article but relates to your statement about grouping the crews together enabling them to get home on as few ships as possible. https://www.cruisemapper.com/news/7554-carnival-cruise-line-panama-organize-cross-country-crew-transfer. Carnival had to get crew across Panama so that those on the Pacific side did not have to go around South America to get on a ship with others. I find things like this interesting in how things work behind the scenes.
