  1. We tried Carnival once and everyone, including our then 14-year-old, hated it. His father and I have liked HAL best, Cunard second. Our cruises on Norwegian have been 50/50. We didn't like Royal Caribbean - too big, too noisy. Our son pretty much has the opposite list! He loved RC and Norwegian, and thought the Queen Mary was "okay." He will be 16 at the time of the cruise and we hope we will all be vaccinated well before next February. Fingers crossed!
  2. My kid prefers not to have lots of scheduled activities - he mostly wants other teens to hang out with. Pretty girls a plus. And, of course, unlimited WiFi.
  3. We have sailed on HAL multiple times but never during a school break. Our teenager has pulled us to try the big "fun" type ships and has loved having lots of other teens on board. We, however, hated the large ships and long to return to HAL. What we are hoping is that a cruise leaving Ft. Lauderdale during the usual February break will work for all of us. Can anybody comment on the number of families with teens on those cruises. Obviously with COVID etc. etc. we can't predict the future but just knowing what past cruises have been like would be helpful.
  4. Our scheduled sailing on Hurtgruten was cancelled and we were given a voucher. The email states that our voucher number is the same as our booking number but has no other information. I'm hoping someone here knows. Do we simply hold on to that email and use the booking/voucher number when we rebook?
  5. I'm sure the people at Royal are doing the best they can - they have limited info and little time.
  6. Post this on the Royal Caribbean board - lots of info there
  7. Our son always loved the kids activities and couldn't wait to get to them. My husband and I had a "date" every night of the cruise! But - if for some reason your kids do not like the separate kids activities, there are lots of things to do on a ship at night. We see families playing games in the sports area at all hours. There are shows every night. Depending on the ship's schedule there are movies. Usually it's more of a problem getting everyone to agree on a single activity than it is finding something to do.
  8. @Capt_BJ I didn't start this thread but really appreciate all your info! I am interested in renting bicycles while at Port Canaveral. Do any companies have bikes at the cruise port? We are coming in on RCCL so we are not across the drawbridge.
  9. This is what bugged me - early reports made it sound like the child was in a children only area instead of a part of the ship where many people go. Lots of places on the ship require caution. To describe the accident as a children's area is very misleading.
  10. I have a bid on this trip - hopefully I will hear soon too!
  11. Well darn. Thanks for answering. We will likely have binoculars with us anyway so we'll see if we can catch some sightings in the less crowded areas
  12. Does anyone know if there is still a path through undeveloped areas on Coco Cay? I've seen some great old photos and posts on birdwatching and am hoping that can still be done. TIA
  13. Hoping this gets clarification as DH and I have no interest in paying to watch our 14yo in the water park
