  1. The Cardboard box beds don’t look to bad. I arrived in Tokyo in March 2011, about 45 minutes before the big earthquake. Since everything shut down, there were 5,000 people in the terminal to find a place to sleep. No boxes, but they did provide sleeping bags to sleep on the floor. You just had to find some floor space to camp out..

  2. Only question about the cardboard box beds is who is cleaning them after use? I’d assume if someone gets tested positive for Coronavirus, they haul it away, but bedbugs, other infectious diseases?

  3. My husband and I were scheduled on a cruise April 4 from Buenos Aires to Lisvon, which of course was cancelled. Here’s the thing. This was on Oceania, we cancelled right away and Oceania gave us 100% credit for a future cruise to be booked by 2021, our friends who were going with us cancelled 2 days after we did and they were offered either a full CASH refund or 125% towards a future cruise. Another friend leaving in March on the same ship that was ending where we were starting (Buenos Aires) was offered a 100% credit plus and upgrade.
    So, how can Oceania or any cruise line offer different things to people, specially when2 of us were on the same cruise? I don’t think this is fair, they should give the same to everyone. So, how do you go about asking for the same thing?
