Maybe everyone will have their own little compartment, only with a food slot...

I am not surprised. Once an entity has power it will try to control as much as possible. Any activity has some component of danger... The CDC doesn't want any splash back that they gave the go ahead too soon. If someone so much as catches a cold while on a cruise, the CDC doesn't want it to come back on them. That's why I keep saying, IF we go on our October cruise.

Getting close to the date I just booked. Ah well, if it cancels it cancels and i have to book again. Meh .. getting used to this.

All part of the evolving process. Rinse and repeat.

Same here, I am almost certain my Aug 9th cruise will be cancelled. If so, I will re-book for next year. Sure we will all be disappointed but it is what it is.

Wondering at what point folks will ask for their $$ back instead of a credit...or what the % is now...

I figure that was gone money since it was paid over 6 months ago and is out of my control. A free or almost free trip in the future works for me. Sort of think of it as a vacation fund just waiting to be used

Im operating under the exact same delusion. its old and long gone etc etc...its that old "house money" theory...which, as an ex insider, I know is BS...you're sitting at the table playing with "their" money..so you don't care...nonsense...its in your stack so its YOURS!...but the cruise lines have us convinced to leave it "in play", instead of picking up the cash and leaving... and to make matters worse, the only thing that usually transfers is the booking...all the perks etc disappear, depending on the "new" cruise you pick. ...we had a bunch on the one that got cancelled, as luck would have it, most of them reappeared...but not all., then I had to do some higher math to apply the % discount etc etc to decide how to play it to MY advantage...good grief I'd really rather just cruise dammit...

In our case it worked well. Initial cruise was a sail away balcony with zero perks (done on the cheap). This one was priced so well we have a mid ship balcony (very nice one) with all the perks for the same price. Only way I don't go is if they cancel and if they do am hoping for the 125 % or the 150% FCC

I'm just wondering when this virus will end. I know we're all wondering the same thing. The sooner this virus is under control or gone, the sooner we can get back to cruising.

Gone? never..under control?...eventually...with a vaccine, mebbe annual, like the flu...until then, it continuuuuues.
