  1. What about the people that buy the drink packages, that's a whole new class of drunks.
  2. People have been saying this since the middle of March, here we are in June, same situation, and will be until at least August. What will people be saying in August, same thing?
  3. When is the crew supposed to get the rooms, and the rest of the ship ready for the cruise? The lines at embarkation is because almost everybody wants to get on the ship as early as possible. Last September we got off at 8:45 and there were all kinds of people waiting for the embarkation to be opened up. Ship doesn’t leave until 5pm.
  4. Luminae is not open for lunch on port days, at least it wasn't on the Equinox last August.
  5. I wouldm't be real surprised if at least one of the Oasis class ships is temporarily shutdown. There are limited docks and terminals that can handle this size ship unless tendering would be an option.
  6. We were on the MSC Seaside this past October. Gratuities was not included in the fare, it was added separately, like most of the other lines do. The upside was it was $12.50 p.p.pd for all cabins. We were in the Yacht Club. The food and service was so good that we tipped them extra so it would bring it up to close to the suites on RCL and Celebrity.
  7. That is not true, they have to do it within 24 hours of sailing. Been there, done that.
  8. I never use the robes but my wife does. She also didn't care for the color, but like you, she thought they were very nice. She uses them every day.
  9. We were in a Sky Suite, on the Equinox this past August. The only difference we saw, in the room, was new deck chairs, new bedding and to ugly gray robes hanging in the closet.
  10. Never going to happen. They've got several billion dollars in new debt that has to be paid back first, before they do any improvements they don't have to.
  11. What ever happen to honesty and ethical? And you wonder why the cruise lines play the games they do with pricing.
  12. It would be a sad state of affairs if the cruise line didn’t enforce mandatory mask wearing just to increase their alcohols sales. I wouldn’t be surprised If they did though.
  13. If you're going to hop back on the ship as soon as you can, make sure you, your family and friends, neighbors, and all innocent bystanders, have their affairs in order, in case it's too soon. They shouldn't rush it, if there is a relapse, or a second wave of the virus and cruises have to shutdown for another four months or so, they'll never survive it with all the debt they already have. Don't come back crying if it happens.
  14. That’s just being selfish. If you don’t care about yourself that’s one thing, but what about your family, your friends, your neighbors and any other innocent bystander you might come in contact with? Just because it doesn’t affect you doesn’t mean you can’t infect others as a carrier.
  15. What do you do when your cabin is all the way front or back.? You hit a dead end either way, they aren’t like the promenade or top deck, where the walking track is, an oval.
