  1. Not likely unless the industry is shut down for an extended period of time. Lenders will defer payments if the industry is shut down, otherwise they know they would get pennies on the dollar in bankruptcy. This isn't an NCL problem, it's an industry/world problem.
  2. Supply and demand. High prices will not attract buyers
  3. You're best bet is to start a new thread titled "Who is on the Joy this week 3/8/2020" or something similar. Or Post to the roll call for the sailing.
  4. Not likely, but nice try. Common courtesy is not that common.
  5. If you have been invited to bid for an upgrade, try bidding for a Spa Balcony cabin, below the cost of the spa passes ($199/pp or so). This is if you're ok with getting assigned to any Spa Balcony cabin. If you like your current balcony location, just plan on buying the passes onboard.
  6. I've cruised each of the last 4 years in late March/early April and new saw an issue, outside of one pushing and shoving match at 2am at the Bliss Lounge nightclub. Nothing crazy, just some 20-somethings acting out a little. I'm scheduled on the Bliss at the end of this month and plan on going as of right now. Though this may change with the coronav situation.
  7. Masks are not as effective since most people don't use them properly. Along with the fact that germs can enter your body through your eyes as well as your mouth and nose. Masks don't cover eyes.
  8. My theory is that they jacked up prices because today is the first day of the new Peace of Mind cancellation window. They don't want phones line jammed up with people making new reservations or canceling and making new reservations (which would extend the time of the call). We will know if this theory is correct if prices drop back to normal levels by the weekend or so.
  9. Agreed. Seasoned cruisers may return when things calm down, but new cruisers will not be flocking to ships. This is a long term stain on the industry. And older folks or those with health issues may now likely never take that first cruise. NCL can jack up prices as high as they want, but the free market will dictate prices long term or NCL will be out of business.
  10. Longer repositioning cruises (which I assume yours was - with a full canal transit) don't sell very quickly so maybe those get the sail away rates sooner rather than later. I'm glad that one worked out well for you, hope you catch another good one.
  11. There is no set answer. It varies with each sailing. If I were to guess an average, I would say inside of 4-6 month before sailing.
  12. Since ToroAzul said "2/5 game" in their reply that means it was a cash game, $2/$5 No Limit texas holdem. I've heard that rake is similar to NCL, which is 10% of the pot, up to $25.
  13. They're referring to the ship's wifi that gets you on the NCL app to check your onboard account, check out activities, text others onboard (if you pay the fee), etc. and also allows you to access cruisecritic.
  14. Unless you're prone to felling chilly, I would not worry about wearing shorts to the dining room. I do it all the time on warm weather itineraries.
  15. Just to answer your initial question, you do have to call in to add someone to a reservation, it can't be done online. It can be done up until the last day or two, as long as there is still life boat capacity for that section of the ship.
