  1. Droop I always buy third party insurance within two weeks of when I book. Because that is how to get coverage for preexisting conditions. I don’t wait until until final payment. I was never concerned about bankruptcy but I think given the current situation bankruptcy is a real concern. If you want to protect your deposit against bankruptcy buying now would be your only option. If you have a credit card that includes insurance I would check to see if it covers bankruptcy. I always use a credit card that has travel insurance when I book any travel. Check all your credit cards. You might have one with coverage and not know about it. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  2. You need third party insurance. If you can get any. But my advice is not to put any deposits down right now if you are worried about getting them back. The situation should be clearer later on. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  3. I am using the phone primarily but I also use the computer sometimes and an iPad sometimes. I leave them all logged in. I don’t have to log out of one to be logged in on all three at the same time. Right now logged in to the boards on my phone on the app and on my computer and iPad on web browsers. (I do think that despite my preference that it is a bug that sign out does not work) It is true an app does not use cookies but since the initial log on uses the browser log on page then switches to the app it might be expected to drop a cookie in Safari. It doesn’t though. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  4. I went ahead and signed out. When I went to sign back in I replicated the behavior that Organized Chaos described. As far as cookies I was going to try deleting them but there are none, no cookies to delete, so I guess either the app is saving the password or the sign out from the server on the app is not functioning. I can’t determine which. Very interesting...... Does not bother me since I prefer it remembering my password and I prefer not having to log in every session. When I used the CC app and Tapatalk in olden times I never logged out. I don’t see the point in logging out. It is not a bank app. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  5. The log in on the upper left is for the Cruise Critic web site. The one on the right is for the forums. You would have to ask the powers to be why they did that. I would delete the cookies as suggested in the previous post. Then if you log back in don’t use the one on the left. Only use the one on the right. I would test this myself but I don’t want to mess up what is working great for me. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  6. A lot is known about coronaviruses and there will be a vaccine. There are already candidates. The main problem after a safe vaccine is developed will be manufacture and distribution. Yes, I am done with cruising while COVID-19 is still around. Not a hard decision to make. The mega ship cruises have gotten worse with every sailing as the cruise lines cram in more cabins with every dry dock. My last few sailings on large ships were less than stellar. Allure of the Seas in January the food sucked and the ship was dirty. Reflection in December the buffet was awful and half the ship was sick. Harmony in January 2019 was just okay. Summit in June 2019 was okay. The only good sailing was Oceania last August. Unusually and luckily because of those recent experiences I had nothing booked for 2020 except a wait list on Oceania which I didn’t book when it cleared. Possibly I may never cruise again. Time will tell. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  7. I have not had that bug using the iOS version of the Cruise Critic app. I have been using the app for all my reading and posting since the app came back. All in all the iOS bugs have been minor. I see from the screenshot that the Android version has a different layout and I don’t see an ad. The layout is sort of upside down from the iOS version. I would post a screenshot but there is a big Facebook ad in the stream. [emoji33] Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  8. I won’t book a cruise until there is a vaccine. Hopefully Celebrity will still be in business. I guess I am not helping though. I would not chance them holding my money. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  9. Correct. And if walk up to the fence you will see uniformed men with automatic weapons guarding the enclave. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  10. Ft Lauderdale has historically welcomed cruise ships and they have been a major part of the local economy. Barcelona has large local anti cruise ship sentiment. Not only cruise ship passengers. Barcelona is said to be over touristed. Before these events some local activists wanted cruise ships away or severely limited. That included major local elected officials. So it could be speculated that cruise ships might not be welcomed back to Barcelona for a long time .....if ever. https://www.theguardian.com/cities/2019/jul/05/barcelona-mayor-promises-crackdown-cruise-ships Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  11. A case could be made for Australia to never allow large cruise ships again. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  12. Really the experience of visiting the ports from a cruise ship is pretty limited but I would never gotten that limited experience for many places without cruises. Outside the Caribbean I usually combine a cruise with a land vacation. In the Caribbean I am into snorkeling and beaches. I also like sailing the ocean. Over the years though the food onboard has gone downhill on the mainstream cruise lines as they stuff more cabins onto ships every dry dock. I don’t sail for the tiers and perks although I will accept them if offered. I got the perks by cruising a lot, I was not cruising for the perks. I recently sailed on Oceania the first time so had no perks but really most of what are perks on mainstream lines were included. Of course you are paying for them. I won’t be booking any future cruises until there is a vaccine. Then I will book but probably look to book on Oceania or Azamara or other lines like that if they survive.

  13. Actually US Air absorbed American and took on the AA name. They did merge the two programs. I was in both. US Air was a horrible airline and their management took over and what is called American has the same horrible management. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  14. You had to pay to join the Captains Club. I think membership cost me $29 or something like that. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  15. Well so much for no issue with infection. That was totally wrong. Whoever is responsible for the photo and crew party should suffer consequences. They totally ignored what was happening in the world. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
