Cruising Chatter / Re: Happy new year - quiet on here.

When they do convene cruising I'll not sure I'll really like the product they'll be offering. :(
Not that it's under their control.
It might take years to return to the same old style cruising, if at all.

Will we see any 2021 sailings?   Not so sure right now.
If and when, it will be surreal, and cherished. Nothing like losing something to make it desirable. Fall... Maybe. We will see.

I would have liked to sail on that ship but the number of times it sailed RT from Port Everglades was limited & we never made it.
Oh well.
At this point I suppose it'll be a while to sail on any Princess ship.

"Princess Cruises announced on Thursday that it has sold its ship, Pacific Princess, to an undisclosed buyer.

The move is in line with parent company Carnival Corporation’s initiative to say goodbye to "less efficient ships," an online news release said.

"Pacific Princess holds so many memories and cherished experiences to all who sailed upon her," Princess Cruises president Jan Swartz said in the release. "Pacific Princess offered a traditional style of cruising to unique destinations."

Cruising Chatter / Happy new year - quiet on here.

It is good to see this board still going, albeit it, very, very quiet.  Happy New Year to All.

I think cruising is a long way off yet, certainly in Australia nothing much happening this year.  Our Covid position is very good, no new cases for weeks, apart from the pesky tennis players flying in to  Melbourne for the big tennis carnival and they are holed up in quarantine, screaming like banshees. ;D

We have not started doing Covid jabs yet.

Stay safe folks, it is a jungle out there.

Cruising Chatter / Re: Virus pops up on RCCL
« Last post by RichC on December 11, 2020, 10:38:59 AM »
After all the news being reported about one person getting the virus it was a false positive in the end.
I can see it happening again as soon as the ships get under way from US ports.
It makes me thing hard about booking any cruise anytime soon....even though I would like to.

As much as I would like to get back cruising once again in 2021, things like this make me think long & hard about when we'll even get back to the old days.  :'(
