  1. I found this article about it: https://www.cruisehive.com/passenger-missing-after-going-overboard-norwegian-cruise-ship/32273
  2. I’m sorry about that, I was mistaken in my understanding of your post. Sad times make for raw feelings.
  3. That is what I was pointing out. There was some confusion as to who was in the smaller plane. Some reports made it seem that only the larger plane had Royal passengers since the smaller was a private charter. No where did I imply the fact the smaller plane wasn’t an “official” excursion made their “importance” any less.
  4. Sadly, according to Princess’ statement on the crash, both planes were carrying passengers from Royal Princess. The smaller plane was a private tour, not an official Princess excursion, but still booked by Royal passengers. The larger plane was an official Princess excursion.
  5. Also, sometimes they may assign you a room that is considered an upgrade but may not seem like one to you. For example you may want an Obstructed Oceanview with a picture window (OK) but be “upgraded” to a Porthole (OG).
  6. Looks like a reporter for the Daily News was aboard: https://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/ny-news-cruise-ship-extreme-gust-wind-20190305-story.html
  7. So it looks like the HI’s will be suites with jacuzzis but no Thermal Suite access. I wonder why they’ve decided to do that?
  8. I can’t be 100% but I think it was the full price. I had already gotten ours before so I didn’t purchase it there but there was a sign on the desk displaying the price. And I can’t remember for certainty if it said $179 or $199...
  9. When we sailed out of NYC on the Breakaway last December they had a table set up right at the Pier to purchase spa passes. It was in the waiting area right across from the little snack/sandwich stand. Maybe they’ll have it set up again this time and you’ll be able to book even before getting on the ship (y) Safe travels!
  10. I found a video of your cabin 9172 on the Pearl that might be helpful. The Gem & Pearl are sisters so the decor will be different but the layout should be the same (y) I hope this works and helps ease your mind! Have a great cruise!
  11. We had cabin 8548 on the Jewel to Alaska a few years back and we loved it! It was private, sheltered and in a great location in relation to getting around on board. It was very quiet, too! The next cruise we went on had a “regular” balcony and I do have to admit I preferred the hull type ;)
