  1. I agree with this. I think it will still be awhile before they do. And when they do, I think it's likely they will kind of test the waters with short cruises.
  2. OK, I get it now. Appreciate all the help. 🙂
  3. Good info. We won’t be buying a package, I don’t think. But would like to eat at the Steak place one night, and the Italian place another night. So if I reserve those two online, as long as I don’t reserve for the same time as our MTD, it will go through ok?
  4. Ok, thanks. I just wasn’t sure what they prefer or if they hold a table or what they do. I will of course notify them.
  5. I have a cruise booked with RCI for next May. It's been a few years since I cruised with Royal, but I am familiar with MTD--at least how it worked a few years ago. I went ahead and reserved MTD at 6:30 each night. We will want to do Specialty two nights. My question is this: On those nights we eat elsewhere do we need to notify the MDR that we won't be there on those 2 nights or do we just not show up? Not sure how that works. Thanks in advance.
  6. To answer your question, OP, if other restaurants are bookable and La Cucina shows no times, you can still book once (if) you get onboard. Only a portion of available reservations are allowed online.
  7. Totally agree that you need common sense too. We had a Bed and Breakfast booked since last August for the end of this month. I called and asked if, instead of cancelling, can we just move it a couple months later? She was happy to. So now we are booked for mid June. Hoping it will be a go but well aware we might have to move it again.
  8. Glad to hear it--as am I. Just seems like so often when someone asks an optimistic question, way too many replies are like slaps. Optimism is just generally in the nature of some, and not in others.
  9. You are NOT allowed to be an optimist here without a whole lotta preaching', lol.
  10. We were in the Haven on the Bliss Feb 23-March 1 and the only thing different from your Haven experience was we were indeed escorted to the theatre for shows. It must depend on the Concierge as the one we had was not the same as yours. Ours was new to the Bliss as of our cruise (or maybe the cruise before). We also loved Le Bistro and Los Lobos! But as we all know, food is subjective. Glad you had a great cruise! The Bliss is gorgeous.
  11. You can still get towel animals. All you have to do is request them. This "no more towel animals" thing has gotten tired. or maybe I have just gotten tired...
  12. Thank you, V&J! Seems like eons ago I was on board--a sad change of reality since then, for sure. The refrigerator was stocked with water. The only other thing we got was salsa and tortilla chips. I don't remember there being any fruit, but there might have been...we were focused on our drinks. 😉 I suppose since I no longer wear glasses I might as well switch that photo out (for one with sunglasses, ha ha). I'll see what I can do. So happy to hear from you again, girl! 🥰
  13. This will pass. Nobody knows when, but it will. Once it does and has for awhile, I will be booking a cruise.
  14. COVID was not really a "thing" on 2/2. None of the cruise lines were contacting passengers yet at that point I don't think. When I cruised on the Bliss on 2/23 it was heating up. We had a questionnaire to answer before boarding, regarding symptoms and travel. No coughing was noticed. A few children had colds. By the next cruise, a young child boarded that they did realize (later) was infected. NCL sent letters to passengers informing them. Nothing wrong with asking these questions first post or post #1000. That seems to be a thing here with some posters (minority) and it is dumb. I got one of those comments when, after years of being a member of CC with 1000s of posts under my belt, I stopped for awhile and signed up again when I cruised again after a break. That's the sort of thing that caused me to stop coming here in the first place. So please--think before you come down on someone who is new.
  15. My opinion is if it's only $200 more certainly snap it up. Being right there in the quiet midst of the Haven is wonderful. It's not about the walking for me--we walked a ton each day even though we were staying there. Walking from an out-of-the-courtyard cabin would not make a difference to me. What did make a difference was the overall experience of just being right there. We were in the Haven (2 BR Courtyard suite on the Bliss) a few weeks ago. Can't say enough good things about it. We still would have loved it being in an "outer" Haven cabin, but I don't see it comparing on the highest level of wonderful. For $200, to me the highest level of wonderful is totally worth it.
  16. Love this. Thank you Sid, I really needed something to get my mind off the bad stuff.
  17. To answer OP's question (!), yes. I will book a cruise on NCL. Depending on the itinerary, possibly Royal. But most likely NCL.
  18. I was on the Bliss a few weeks ago. It is really large and lots of walking is needed. I agree the elevator situation could be better--but just use some patience and/or use the stairs a bit if you can. Not a big complaint for me. But I think she is an absolutely gorgeous ship and well laid out. Staff were amazing everywhere I went, only ate in specialty restaurants but really good everywhere (with a few small misses). The people were fine, I did not notice any particular rudeness. It was a happy place and a lot of fun.
  19. This is what I see for their home page. Kind of confusing! I went into press releases and nothing there either.
  20. I can’t find this info on the Lenawee website or the CDC. I am in no way saying it’s not true, I just would like to see the source report for this. If someone else can find it, please share? Thanks!
