  1. WOW!!!! So cool, and such amazing photos! Thank you for sharing!!!
  2. Some food for thought. Hold tight people. https://seekingalpha.com/article/4332075-hold-your-nose-and-buy-norwegian
  3. This doesn't effect me, I have my cruise booked in May.
  4. Because three days after implementing the FCC offer, they are offering a cash refund? Why not?
  5. I (apprehensively) agree with you, but it's something they should do. But up to 90 days for refund reimbursement...sheesh. Definitely going to have a cash flow problem.
  6. They better do the right thing by those that have already canceled and got the "Peace of Mind" FCC for cruises during this time, ie: 125% FCC or revoke the FCC and give a cash refund. I love NCL, but I am totally nervous about the future of this company with the US Senate letter, and now this.
  7. Maybe it depends on the situation regarding Jones' Act? When we were on the Pearl a couple of weeks ago for Key West and Great Stirrup Cay, we couldn't tender because of weather so we just had a sea day and went back to Miami - no foreign port stop. Maybe they got an exemption for that?
  8. Flew to and from Fort Lauderdale last week (Flew in Wednesday 2/26, flew out Sunday 3/1), and both flights were full. We were on the NCL Pearl during that time for our bachelor party cruise, and there weren't any additional protocols that were being conducted other than additional washy washy. We only went to the buffet twice for breakfast, and both times we were able to serve ourselves. No coughing or anything of the sort that we noticed. We did have our passports thoroughly flipped through at check-in, and had to fill out a questionnaire related to Coronavirus. Other than that -- business as usual.
  9. Us too, for our honeymoon. We leave for Rome the day after our wedding, and catch the cruise on May 18. Slightly freaking out, but we did take out insurance (not CFAR though, as we got the insurance way after the 21 day window). We aren't planning on canceling ourselves though. The only way we won't go is if there are travel restrictions that prevent us. Slightly nervous about catching the virus, but (luckily) we are overall pretty healthy, so we would just quarantine ourselves and take whatever measures we would have to to prevent spreading to others. I do, however, worry about being quarantined in Italy, so far from home. We have just over two months - selfishly, I hope this gets under control in time for us to enjoy our honeymoon with no hiccups. Overall, I hope and pray that this gets eradicated for those with compromised immune systems that could fall extremely ill to this virus.
  10. Exactly. What a toolbag. All of them should be banned from cruising indefinitely.
  11. We try to be one of the first groups on the ship, not for any specific reason other than excitement and having ants in our pants! We get to the port basically as soon as security opens, and usually end up between the first to the third group to board. A few more cruises and we'll be Platinum, so we'll be able to bypass that (I think?!). If it's a ship we've been on, we'll also go to O'Sheehans for lunch and a drink (usually a Bloody Mary). Then we'll quickly drop our carry on off in our room and change into our bathing suits, grab a second drink (usually a Moscow Mule), and head right into the hot tubs until muster drill! IMO, it's the best way to start vacation this way you avoid the hustle of everyone boarding. If it's a ship we've never been on, we'll do exactly what MeHeartCruising does - just in reverse haha. We'll start with the lower decks, and explore each deck until we reach the top.
  12. I absolutely loved Moderno! 1. Cagney's 2. Moderno 3. Teppanyaki 4. La Cucina My SO and I don't eat fish, so we haven't been to Ocean Blue...we also haven't been to Le Bistro, but think we're going to try it on our Greek cruise on the Getaway in three months.
  13. Sweet!!!!! I look forward to seeing everyone who booked the May 2021 ABC Island cruise on the Breakaway!
  14. I'm booked on a 9 day southern Caribbean r/t from Miami for May 2021 on the Breakaway. Although they're few and far between, they do exist on the mega ships. FWIW, the itinerary is Aruba, Curacao, Bonaire, and Puerto Plata (DR). IMO it's the perfect blend of sea days and port days, with really good times at port: Fri Miami, Florida --- 4:00 PM 0 Sat At Sea --- --- 0 Sun At Sea --- --- 0 Mon Oranjestad, Aruba 8:00 AM 8:00 PM 0 Tue Willemstad, Curaçao 8:00 AM 8:00 PM 0 Wed Kralendijk, Bonaire 7:00 AM 4:00 PM 0 Thu At Sea --- --- 0 Fri Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic 7:00 AM 5:00 PM 0 Sat At Sea --- --- 0 Sun Miami, Florida (Flight Departure) 7:00 AM --- 0
  15. Thank you Dont-use-real-name! This is the smallest NCL ship I've ever been on, so I'm looking forward to the more intimate feeling. Thank you everyone who contributed!
