NO MORE GAS FROM THE BUREAUCRATS PLEASE

We've had enough. No more trying to second guess who is lying, or who is telling the truth, or what happens on board "if" this or that happens etc etc etc..Few minutes ago we cancelled ours of NOV 2020, and rebooked it into JAN 2023. Will cancel 2/21 shortly. Our next actual cruise will be NOV 2021. By THEN, there damn well better be a vaccine for general distribution (like a flu shot) and, just mebbe, a return to some type of normalcy onboard. For us, we know we did the right thing. Spoke to our PCC at NCL, handled the whole thing. Just waiting for the bookkeeping to catch up. (thanks OGW!)

The good part is when I joined the roster, the clock changed. WEll...the bad part is we traded 60 something days for 400 something days. We'll get over it...

All these dates are capricious and arbitrary. If those in charge were being honest, restart would be based upon some "event" occurring. Example - perhaps using national infection/mortality rates. Or define a set of conditions for sufficient risk mitigation. Nothing is 100% , but define the 98% criteria. Its a game of CYA.

Please stop...you're being logical, scientific even. You know who you're dealing with, and what drives them. The whole thing is disgusting...THREE booked cruises of ours are no more...they cancelled, we cancelled, whatever. And at the risk of blasphemy, I don't feel the need to cruise under these conditions, and pay for it too. Hardly enjoyable.

We are booked now for Sept 2021 and if it is a no go by then we might just have to go buy our own boat and float around somewhere.

Sorry you had to make this decision. We are still holding out hope for our Princess cruise in January. Our other ocean cruises are scheduled for 2022.


Yeah, I too have an Alaska cruise I made a deposit on for Sept. 2021. Hoping everything works out by then.

We had our retirement cruise in May cancelled due to pandemic. Rebooked to August 2021 on a B2B2B- had all the ports we wanted to see and then CCL canceled it and did a date change ,ship change, and a total revamp of ports of call. Those changes were not acceptable so we cancelled it.

When will we rebook? We will book when some sense of normalcy in whatever manner evolves from this chaos.

As I have mentioned in earlier posts, we have cancelled all cruises and air travel until 2022. While a cruise ship may be deemed as safe in 2022, but air travel and congregating at airports, not so much, we will see again another delay in cruising. I don't want to stop cruising, but health factors may delay that even further.

So far everything is a go for Feb 2022....keeping fingers crossed.

In 2021, we have cruises booked in March and September

In 2022, we have cruises booked in January and April.

What is going to be, is going to be.
