  1. Just announced this morning that ships with more than 100 passengers won't be allowed in Canadian waters until October 31st. So basically that ends any speculation on Alaska cruises this summer. https://www.timescolonist.com/large-cruise-ships-barred-from-canadian-waters-until-end-of-october-garneau-1.24143300
  2. To be specific, "passengers won't be allowed to disembark in BC ports" - so unless the US Federal Government adjusts the PVSA, no Alaska cruises will be taking place. I also don't imagine the ports in Alaska are anxious to have thousands or potential virus carriers visiting. https://www.timescolonist.com/news/local/greater-victoria-harbour-authority-rejigs-for-no-cruise-season-1.24134920
  3. Update - there will be no cruise ships allowed to dock in Canadian ports this summer; or they might be allowed to dock to get provisions, but no one will be allowed off. Basically the Alaska cruise season is over for 2020.
  4. Hey Northwest Cruiser - the border is now closed for non-essential services, so no US tourists coming into Canada by any means.
  5. Yes I have when I cancelled trip to Mexico.
  6. People need to get to stage 5 real quick - cruises to Alaska will not be happening this summer. Certainly none before July 1st and I highly doubt any after that point.
  7. I’m sure there are thousands of travellers in this position. Most airlines, hotels, etc have come up with good cancellation policies.
  8. Have to wonder if the cruise industry will ever fully recover from this season. Lots of money going to be lost.

    Princess has cancelled their cruises for the time being so you might not have been going anyway.
  10. Okay under the circumstances of your travel group, it makes sense to go with the tour guide you booked. I'm sure you will have a great time. I am not a great fan of "tea at the Empress" but again with your circumstances it might make the most sense. I can't think of much else to add to the list already provided, it will give you a good overview of Victoria. Hope the "virus" doesn't spoil your travel plans, I see Princess just cancelled all their cruises for the next two months. It's a new travel world we're living in!
  11. $280 for visiting places you could easily see yourself; some of them are even within walking distance of where the ship docks! While most places will take USD, its always nice if a visitor uses the official currency of the country they are visiting.
  12. I suspect you will go through US immigration/customs once you hit Hawaii.
  13. Yes pickleball is a type of tennis using a smaller court, invented by "older" tennis players who didn't want to run around a big court anymore.
  14. I don't think pickleball is a thing in Europe, doubt very much you'll be finding any. I went on that river cruise to learn about the history of the area and enjoy the scenery.
