  1. It's not just the coronavirus I am concerned about for future cruises. We are a healthy family of 4 that cruise every winter. I don't remember a year we didn't come home sick with something. Luckily we cruised just before Xmas this past year, but I still have the dry irritating cough that I picked up onboard. I think major changes have to happen on all ships to decrease the spread of all viruses. We LOVE cruising, but we're not booking anything for a few years at least.
  2. Personally I'd like to see room stewards' cabin # 's be cut in half in order to spend more time in each cabin to thoroughly clean each cabin and public areas. Of course this will increase prices, but it would be one way to increase consumer confidence.
  3. Exactly. Our family of 4 are always sick by the time we get off the ship or shortly after. We sailed before Xmas and I still have a cough. This despite our stepped up handwashing and hand sanitizer. Makes you wonder what travels through the air system
  4. It was paper straws only on the NS in December and using uncooked spaghetti to skewer olives, pineapple etc.
  5. For most of the cruise you are very near land. In fact you can see land for 3/4 of the trip.
  6. Oh yes. Couldn't agree more. You won't need earplugs. The RSRR was the highlight of our pre-xmas cruise. I was 18 again. It was magnificent. My husband and I and our 18 year old daughter had so much fun. I sat right in front of the speakers and it didn't phase me a bit. I feel the need to post this again.
  7. That's correct. They are in ear monitors. A band member from the RSRR told me.
  8. I think HAL really needs to roll out some kind of rock entertainment fleet-wide whatever form that may take.
  9. Exactly, me too. I will no longer book any cruise ship that doesn't have the rock room. I know I'd be very disappointed without it now that I know how great it is. Orlando Ashford...are you listening?
  10. Isn't that band fantastic? I wish I was on there again!!!
  11. Very true. We just keep doing this itinerary every year.
  12. I would choose the tropical over the western in a heartbeat. Just got off that itinerary on December. It was perfect. No need for shore exc. at any port. Very beachy - our favourite.
  13. We have been hal customers for the last 20 years. We just returned from the NS just before Christmas and I vowed I would never book another Cruise on any ship that doesn't have a rolling stone rock room. We enjoyed it so much and it added so much to our cruise experience that I can't imagine how disappointed I would be to sail on a ship without that entertainment venue. I know that space is an issue on the older ships but I sure would like to see some rock bands on the main stage at the very least.
  14. Agreed wholeheartedly. We found it to be a wonderful addition to our vacation to be able to take in the various bands and musicians all night every night. I am personally so glad to see the phasing out of the sedate lounge music and the main stage singing and dancing shows with big band/show tunes.
  15. Orlando and I are on the same page.... Bring on the RSRR and other modern rock venues throughout the fleet!!!! I enjoyed the RSRR immensely on our cruise a few weeks ago. I don't think I'll book another cruise on a ship that doesn't have the Rock Room.
