  1. I'm new to this site, do you have a link to this group discussion? Thanks!
  2. It's so funny you say that, I told my husband he'll be the youngest guy but I'll be one of the oldest women probably because of all of the young wives married to rich older men. LOLLLL
  3. We are drinkers and eaters, but not partiers. We do want a full schedule though, and I was disheartened by the website advertising things like 'library' and 'bocce ball'. Do you have any idea of what the daily program might include on an RSS cruise? Thank you!
  4. We are definitely bargain hunters, but want the maximum experience we can afford on what we scrimp together. I'm a little confused by your statement that there will be may choices- if any. Those seem like contradictory statements?
  5. Going by their website and ship amenities, this seems to aim for an older crowd. Would a couple in their early thirties feel out of place? I went on one RSS cruise but it was nearly twenty years ago and I don't remember it that well. (Probably not a great sign.)
  6. Thank you very much. Is it just a matter of wait and see based on public health, or prices? Thank you.
  7. I feel terrible about the timing, but my husband and I have never had a formal wedding ceremony and no honeymoon. We've been 100% kid focused for years and we are working on 'us' again. We decided recently to book a vacation and settled on a cruise, and now all of this devastation has hit. We decided to look anyhow, and we think we know what we want. We are/aren't newbies to cruising. I cruised three times growing up, and once many years ago. The only cruise I've ever booked myself was DCL and we barely could afford it, so I didn't have a lot of options. My husband has never cruised. We have decided on an Alaskan cruise on the Norwegian Sun in Summer/early Fall 2021. Our other issue is what type of room to get. We were leaning toward a suite with a butler/concierge because we want to go all out for our one big celebration. We take a lot of baths and shower together every day, and plan on spending quite a bit of time in the room. Also, he is a large (tall and burly) man and I don't want the balcony, room or bathroom to be too cramped. I love the idea of chocolate covered strawberries and snacks and someone making all of our arrangements for us. I'm not sure of everything that is included, but it sure sounds nice for what I do know. It will be a financial stretch but we can make it happen. But I read that those are in high demand and there aren't very many of them. It will cost us 1.75x what another room would. The other option would be a regular balcony room. It's unlikely we could shower together and there is no bathtub. What we can't decide, with all of the uncertainty, is if NOW is the time to book. And we are unsure if going all in on the suite is a good idea or not. Any advice for us? I appreciate any insights you wise cruisers have for us.
