    Cruise again

    Another cruise.

    Paul was on the phone this morning with our cruise host.
    I knew what was coming so I just waited.
    We went off to feed the swans their cracked corn and he mentioned to me...."Carnival is sailing Aug 3 at half capacity and we were offered a great deal"
    Whaddya think ?
    I think we are so desperate to go anywhere at this point I would even book a trip to the arctic circle.

    So he booked.........$116.94 per person for taxes/port fees. free cabin for 2. $650 per cabin onboard credit, can be used in the casino.

    So, we'll see if Carnival actually opens by then.

    Got Lily booked for a 6 day doggie spa, (aka kennel) and the cats will have our friends looking in on them and cleaning litter box.

    I hope that you and Paul get to go and enjoy! We had hoped to get to Vegas in August but I don’t think Tom is ready to think about travel.

    it's kind of funny that the onboard credit is only what we use in the casino during our cruises.
    the longer you play, you earn points. (just like most places when you put your card in)
    1500 points earned gets you $50 slot credit.
    2000 points get you a free cruise (only paying taxes)
    sometimes they give onboard credit and we have been lucky getting that too.

    sometimes it goes fast and sometimes it lasts for 5 days.
    a couple of times we came home with $$..their money.

    the huge drawback is the smokiness in the casinos.

    and as far as being distant.
    on our March 9 cruise we were very socially distant.
    the ship was at half capacity, we were by ourselves during the whole time.
    we carried wipes and lysol'd the room repeatedly.
    we had masks and gloves. (although only wore the throw away gloves in the casino)
    we felt safe.

    So where is this cruise taking you and Paul?
    I'll come and pet sit for you! Lily and I will "cruise" the neighborhood in the golf cart, maybe even strap the kitties in for a spin or two!

    maybe by august the pool, and all of the other amenities will be opened.
    would you mind leading a few water aerobic classes a week?

    What a deal! My May 17th cruise to Bermuda got cancelled by Norwegian Cruises. They offered me 125% cruise credit plus 20% discount if I rebook a new Cruise by May 14 with sailing up to Dec 2022. I chose 100% reimbursement. They were talking about going bankrupt so I said to myself, I better get my money. Still taking the week off from work.
