  1. Even if they tested everyone on embarkation, the test is only accurate for that day. Someone could test positive while onboard. IMO, they need to establish new protocol as to what happens with sick passengers onboard and being allowed to dock with sick passengers. Otherwise, you will have more deaths at sea like what is happening with the HAL ship.
  2. I think you could be right. The HOPE hospital ship will be at the Manhattan pier and today Gov Cuomo was talking about the Brooklyn cruise terminal as a possible emergency hospital site if necessary. I think cruising out of NY is looking slim.
  3. Carnival posted on IG that a decision will be made by March 27 to resume or further delay cruises.
  4. Only in specific cluster areas as of now.
  5. Wow! The governor of NY declared a state of emergency 5 days ago and we have way more cases but the ports are open.
  6. The Marriott in Isle Verde will sell you a day pass and you have use of the pools, beach, loungers, showers, food & drink, etc. They will store your luggage till you are ready to go and the airport is only 5 min away. Last time on the Summit we did a trip to the Bacardi Rum factory through Celebrity. It was really fun and our luggage went on a separate bus to the airport and was waiting for us when we got there. Our flight was around 3pm. Enjoy your cruise and don't waste time sitting in the airport!
  7. I like Grand Turk better than Nassau because you have the Margaritaville pool area and the beach right off the ship.
  8. Wow! Looks like the Legend sustained a lot of damage.
  9. Anyone have experience with them? Recommend which tour? TIA
  10. Hmnn........never been offered a salt choice and we've eaten at the steak house just about every cruise. Does it matter what you order?
  11. Do you ask ahead of time, or first night of the cruise?
  12. This is a very interesting question. With ATD since you may only have the same wait staff for a night or two, it makes sense to tip them as the service is rendered. With our room steward we generally give the tip the night before leaving, to thank him/her for their service, so as not to miss them on a very busy debarkation day. I prefer to hand it off so I know where it is going rather than leave it in the room or on the table.
