  1. The line confirmed to us that the passenger was a 22-year-old asymptomatic American. Here's our article: https://www.cruisecritic.com/news/5502/. The PG section is after the info on Hurtigruten.
  2. Here's our story on Royal Caribbean's Muster.20.
  3. Of course Cruise Critic covered as well: https://www.cruisecritic.com/news/5480/
  4. Absolutely no kids on our Thanksgiving cruise on SeaDream II last year. In fact, barely any people at all! It was so pleasant that we booked SeaDream I for this Thanksgiving, although who knows.....
  5. Hi all - I'm currently working on a story for Cruise Critic about the private and charter air programs that the different luxury cruise lines have -- and whether these will become more popular in the post-COVID-19 world. Would you be more likely to splurge on private or charter air, once cruising resumes? Let me know your thoughts.
  6. Wanted to update everyone here with our article. The economist said that it was an assumption for their model, and not a government policy. Also statement from NCL: https://www.cruisecritic.com/news/5371/
  7. In case you missed our article: https://www.cruisecritic.com/news/5362/
  8. Hi all! Our crack UK staff was onboard. Here's our First Impressions: https://www.cruisecritic.com/news/5124/. Also Cruise Critic has a great walkthrough video that we did. If you click the Scarlet Lady story, you'll find it: https://www.instagram.com/cruisecritic/
  9. Well, I enjoyed SeaDream II so much over Thanksgiving last year....I'm going again this year! This time, I'll be on SeaDream I. Some overlap in islands, but I'm particularly happy to be going to Bequia, which is one of my favorites. Now that I found an excellent St. Martin hotel, too, I think we'll stay an extra night there after the cruise. This is another wine voyage too. I have more than a few cruises before now and Thanksgiving, but my husband and I will definitely be looking forward to this one.
  10. Just a note that we here at Cruise Critic are tracking the ship too --- we've been told it's going to happen but you never know until you know!
  11. My second article from the trip, about the wine voyage program with Armand de Brignac, is now live: https://www.cruisecritic.com/news/4834/
  12. Jumping in to say hello. I'll be on this inaugural sailing (with a colleague to follow on the first seven-day voyage). Looking forward to the hoopla and excitement of a new ship, particularly on the West Coast!
  13. 🙂 It's fun to read this! Don and I did what we always do, which is float between all the groups and say hello. Just call me Switzerland. 🇨🇭 I did miss the incident with the older man swimming off the back, although another passenger told me about it. Good on you, Tiki, for being there when you were! That sounded rather scary. We did show up for trivia night, having slept through the entire music "Battle Royale" the night before, and no one was there. Oh well. I apparently channeled all my competitiveness into Jenga at Foxy's! 😂Gareth took a photo of me with my "game face" on. My family won't let me live this one down for a while!
  14. Hi all! I'm pulling together an article on Cruise Critic about the absolute best things to eat and drink on Norwegian Encore -- and would love your suggestions! I was on the ship when it was in New York a few weeks ago, and was able to dine at a few places (including Onda by Scarpetta -- yum!) But some of you have been on the ship for longer voyages, and so I'd love your input. So how about it? What dining delights, specialty or complimentary, would you tell your friends and family not to miss? Any favorite cocktails onboard? (I love almost any of the spicier drinks from the Sugarcane Mojito bar!) Chris
