  1. I never sterilized anything, had 5 babies, our pediatrician said babies need clean, not sterile.
  2. I have a tile on my roomba and it’s a game changer! She’s a good hider.
  3. Yes, my son’s friend missed a lot of the winter track season because he had a lingering positive, even though he was 2+ weeks out from his initial positive test result.
  4. I agree testing is here for a while, but schools are accepting proof of a recent positive covid test in place of a negative covid test, since you can get a false positive for weeks after having covid. When my high school kids had covid, they were nervous they would not be cleared for spring sports because they were still testing positive, but the school amended their policy of requiring a negative test for participation.
  5. I’m hoping they change their policy, even colleges allow proof of a positive covid test in recent weeks as a substitute for a negative test.
  6. Outside, on the beach, we’ve been approached by vendors on the atlantis beach as well, but not as much. The beach is narrow, but they won’t follow up the stairs to the resort. Since the resort is AI, I don’t know why they keep hawking their alcoholic drinks (and my 19 year old son bought a cigar to be left alone).
  7. We’ve done both, really enjoyed RIU, decent buffet for breakfast and lunch. The vendors are annoying.
  8. The formula would be how much you use their services.
  9. I don’t know when the Anthem is sailing, but the first week in November is essentially a holiday week for NJ students.
  10. You realize the DSC doesn’t go to the butler and concierge.
  11. The problem is the program is for 13 - 17 year olds, and at least in the past they’ve been very strict. I had a 12 year old on one of our cruises, he hung out on the sports deck a lot. The teens don’t spend a lot of time in the club, it’s more of a way to others.
  12. You can never get a price reduction after final payment.
  13. I don’t think so, we have 5 kids so he never had a lot of free time! I’ve known him Sind middle school, he had a girlfriend all though high school, another all though college, when they graduated they were living an hour from each other, they eventually drifted apart. I found out about her because my friend at work was dating one of his best friends, and she learned they both had girlfriends (she was not happy about it, my husband’s friend eventually married the girlfriend he had at the time 28 years ago, we’re all good friends now).
  14. I remember being a sort of girlfriend to a guy I started dating after college, I found out he had a girlfriend 3 months after we started dating and I was thrilled. Right before we got together I had just broken up with a guy and had zero interest in getting into a relationship, so I was relieved we could keep things casual (he had also just graduated from college and was still technically with his college girlfriend). We’ve been married almost 27 years.
  15. If the teen club is open, send him the first night, that’s where they meet other teens to hang out with.
  16. I have kids at college, positives can either quarantine in quarantine housing, be picked up, or drive home. Some students live far, you know they’re stopping for food and bathroom breaks getting home. It’s really an honor system.
  17. They did before the beverage package existed, discontinued years ago.
  18. Any cabbage you can rent chairs and an umbrella and but some sort of “drink” from vendors.
  19. Yes, you can even check out then if you want.
  20. My grandmother changed her name from Anna to Anne at one point (based on the US census). I don’t think she did it legally, my mother had no idea (thought her name was Anne until my grandmother mentioned it was Anna when she was in her 80’s, found out the census information from ancestry.com). My mother used her birth certificate and had a passport.
  21. NCL works the same way for food allergies, amazing service.
  22. I’m guessing it’s an insurance liability, they’ve always been very strict. Honestly my kids hated the 10 - 12 club, maybe stayed an hour at that age (they could sign themselves out). Entourage is more of a place for teens to meet up before roaming the ship.
  23. NCL was awesome every cruise with my celiac daughter, did your wife speak to the dietary manager? She ordered meals ahead of time, pretty much whatever she wanted. However, in the specialty restaurants they could really only modify regular entrees to make them gluten free, so she was much better off in the MDR’s. As for mocktails, aren’t they just juice or soda without alcohol?
  24. I have 5 adult children (18, 18, 20, 23, 25). I know they drink alcohol, the younger ones have fakes (and are away at college), and I allow them to drink (in moderation) at home (and the last part is even legal).
