  1. TA is saying that Crystal is in trouble. We moved payment for our 2020 cruise to our 2021 trip. I hope we don’t lose it. We love traveling Crystal and would hate to see them go under.
  2. I was happy to learn that the Regal was replacing the Grand for our cruise. The Grand is my least favorite of the the grand class ships. I selected the cruise for the itinerary which is Norway and Iceland. I believe the switch was made for health reasons. Since the virus is airborne, I think Princess wants as many cabins as possible to have access to fresh air and the Regal is mostly balconies. The ventilation systems on the newer ships are probably easier to upgrade than those on the older ships. These were my first thoughts when I heard about the ship swap. I doubt they’ll ever tell us.
  3. I hope you don’t catch catch it and that your niece feels better soon. These are trying times!

  5. The US plan was to repatriate everyone who wanted to go. They knowingly took people who were positive, but asymptomatic, with Corvid 19. Regardless, all passengers were going into a 14 day quarantine once back on US soil. I think 13 passengers are at a special facility in Nebraska. The rest are segregated on two military bases. I’m way more worried about the 143 other people on the plane with the lady from the Westerdam. They were all exposed and they all got on other flights to go home. That’s a potentially huge mess.
  6. I have been following David from the beginning. Both he and Sally have been coughing for days. Early on, David was also sick to his stomach. I highly doubt they are in the beginning stages of Covid 19. I think they’ve had it for awhile. There’s been some reports that it gets better and then comes back. I hope that’s not the case for them. David & Sally are my first and only reality show. I want a happy ending- they get better and go home! Then, no more reality shows for me!
  7. The Princess Platinum insurance “Cancel for Any Reason” is credit toward another trip. It for the cruise fare only not ez-air. Singapore just raised their threat level to Orange. I assume they will soon close their cruise terminal as well.
  8. Apparently Princess isn’t feeding the passengers aboard the Diamond. It sounds insane but listen to this guy

  10. https://www.thestandard.com.hk/breaking-news/section/4/141062/Two-more-preliminary-positive-cases-for-coronavirus The cruise passenger was on the 1/17 sailing of the Diamond Princess. He potentially infected all the passengers and crew on his sailing. He went to the buffet, stood in crowded elevators and went to shows.Think about these people. Hopefully Princess contacted them and gave their names to the appropriate health authorities so the could be monitored, They are still in the incubation period. They were in all sorts of public places and visiting with family and friends. They may, unknowingly,have infected thousands of other people.

    Is Hong Kong safe?

    What a relief. Thank you and Jamie for posting.
  12. Our cruise is docking in Hong Kong. We plan to fly to XiAn for two days in order to see the Terracotta warriors. Fly back to Hong Kong for a few days and return to the US. Can we use this new visa?

    Is Hong Kong safe?

    Hi mking, Thank you so much for sharing information with us. Our ship, the Majestic Princess is scheduled to dock on Saturday and overnight in Hong Kong during the middle of March. The current plan is to go to Macau on Saturday and fly to XiAn on Sunday. We are using cruise ship transfers to the airport on Sunday. Given the situation, we felt that was the safest bet. We are thinking of hiring a car and driver on Saturday to take us to Macau. On the way, we want to drop our large suitcases( so we don’t have to deal with them on the plane) at the HK Sheraton which is where we plan to stay , for two nights, when we return from XiAn on Tuesday. Given the current situation, do you think this is a good plan?
