  1. Question: how much is FEMA an influence here to help get the ships in for humanitarian reasons? Seems Florida utilizes help from FEMA quite a bit during hurricanes so...... Just asking. It does seem very political. Hope this happens soon and all parties are good with the plan.
  2. No that is not true. Sleep apnea may eventually cause issues that may lead to early death but no one has a CPAP machine at home that is a life and death situation if not used every day/night. Even severe sleep apnea patients can be without it for one or two nights. There are other things that can help temporarily. Pulmonary nurse expert here..... IMO, they do not want the machines onboard because they cannot guarantee they have been cleaned appropriately and can be a petri dish of bacteria and viruses.
  3. What a great day, the villa looks lovely. Very nice pictures. I am not a big fan of HC even though we had a cabana last time but now I want to try a villa. Maybe I can afford it, maybe not, we'll see. Jealous but glad you had a great time! ☺
  4. Yes! Some states need to declare a state of emergency to release any additional funds and programs. Some states it happens when it is deemed necessary by the govenor, no state of emergency needs to be declared. Sounds more dire that needed by some states.
  5. Haha, duly notified.....haha! Stress can compromise the immune system also, you really need to stay home. Right now the cautions are for vulnerable people, underlying medical issues etc. As others have said, you can be exposed to it in your own community; church, grocery store, Target.
  6. Good to know! Always think about upgrading but never have. Nice!!😊
  7. So, how many cruises in the past few months/weeks that have taken place, on how many cruise lines that had no issues or people with the virus? It appears there are quite a few; how many are there with issues, 2 or 3? It also appears that the cruiselines and the cruisers are stepping up to ensure a clean cruise for all. All should be commended for their efforts. I believe people are trying to do the right thing for the greater good. My thanks to you all. Just a thought....... Safe cruising all! 😊
  8. I agree everyone needs to take care of themselves based on what they believe is told to them. However, the current science and experts indicate the risk is low overall. Those with other risk factors are mentioned in the message but they are at risk in any infectious disease issue, this is not new. Stating some % based on generic or unknown numbers is not accurate or helpful, it sensationalizes the situation. I have watched the media and putting alarming adjectives around this is alarmist. It is very apparent that they are just repeating what the current science says but add tone and words that escalate the situation. Actually the information they report is very generic with lots of questions around it but this is info for the general public, it doesn't add up. Even the network science reporters, usually physicians, indicate the risk is low yet the anchors sensationalize things. Tabloid journalism and sadly, that is who people listen to, IMHO. Take care and wash your hands (not saying you don't)! ☺
  9. Still speculation based on unknown numbers. No concrete or credible data available yet, so no facts. Are you in healthcare? It is a different persepective based on education and experience which the media and the general public doesn't have. Which one are you?
  10. All speculation on your part based on the little knowledge of the exact numbers known. Exactly the alarmist information the media has put out. Not really convinced you are knowledgable about epidemiology; the statistics are inferential and therefore not considered significant, too many variables that bring bias to any determination of the numbers. Are you even in healthcare?
  11. Hi Greenpea, this is great! I was on the Encore the same week so could not follow along with you and your sistah. I am a failure at tech stuff, your review and posts are great! Love all of the pics. You both look very relaxed and happy. I will be following along. 😊 #tribesistah
  12. Mine was listed inside of the reservation itself in my account on the HAL website. There was a window and a link to click on. Hope this helps.
  13. Ok, it might be where a person is located geographically. JMHO. No issues here. ☺
  14. Not really....☺ I guess it depends on what sports you follow.
  15. Been through the old locks, just wanted to know about the size of the ship. Not familiar with Princess ships. Thanks though.....
