  1. Hear your concerns evandbob. but look at what's happening in FL (can't speak for TX). More and More testing. Look at the % testing positive vs the total tests. Look at the demographics of the ones positive. look at the influx of out of staters into FL. Look at the death rates. Not necessarily creating a petri dish like NY or NJ. That doesn't mean that cruising will return to days of yore, just that as we all learn more about this mess we become better able to get control vs panic and fear.
  2. So the cruise sailed but you didn't, correct? However, you weren't forced off the ship(s). You chose to take an incentive but could have cruised. Just like on an airline that overbooked, if you needed to fly that flight, you don't answer the call. I read the OP's question as being will they kick you off or send you an email cancelling your booking with compensation or asking you first.
  3. They'll honor your booking, unless cancelling the entire cruise. They will limit the number of passengers and stop allowing bookings when X number is reached, regardless of what cabins are selected. At worst when booking a cabin, they can tell you it's not available. But once booked you're in, unless you snag a handicap cabin but aren't handicapped and it's needed.
  4. And Chank is the opposite way from San Gervais and the chocolate tour. Closes at 5P. Plus Fat Tuesdays isn't the greatest spot to take a 7 year old. Walk around the Plaza downtown. Stop at the Museum. Go toLos Cinco Soles to shop and grab an early dinner at Pancho's Backyard right there.
  5. Unless you want an aft L shaped, corners on decks 15,14,12,11.10. and 9 , all balconies are 44 sq ft and cabins are 205 sq ft. The Corners may also be suites now. The midship cabins between the elevators where the configuration bulges out over the atrium are labeled extended balcony on some deck plans but think they are really ocean suites. Adding, however, no one has sailed this ship yet and we may not really know until next spring when she is completed.
  6. You have to reserve a time for YTD daily. Or at least that is how it was on the Horizon . You might be able to book that forward when you get on board. But the purpose of YTD is flexibility. I think the Loft 19 Cabanas are reserved for the Excel Suites, or at least those cabins have first privilege. so probably a daily signup or wait list once on board.
  7. Yes, sadly....we have a conflicting RCCL cruise same time in 2022, plus another rebooking RCCL cruise in April 2022. BUT, we've got the Jan 28, 2023 same itinerary, same cabin as a rebooking. Can't wait to read all the reviews before then.
  8. We were able to book the 1-28-23 Mardi Gras, same cabin, cove spa on deck 5. we have 2 Royal C replacement cruises in 2022. Hope all get to travel on the Mardi Gras before that.
  9. If you can book before 5/31/21, sail before 4/30/23, they have a good deal. Full freight and $600 OBC! I can avoid getting the bevie package!!👍 Unless DW spends that at the spa.👎
  10. Missed it by a week!!! We'll look to rebook, sometime, somewhere.
  11. Missed it by a week!!!🤢 We'll look at rebooking But we've rebooked 2 cruises already and have a 3rd in the wings. Might want to join the merchant marine for 2022. 😁
  12. Corporate Cash Management is NOT like your bank's saving account rate. Depending on need they can stretch it out to a year or more. Repos, Corporate debt, etc. can give much higher yields. still not like they are raking in more than 1%.
  13. This is all about risk management. Cruise lines are going to create protocols to mitigate the risk of getting infections-require masks, disperse crowded venues, urge washing of hands. The rest is up to you. If you cannot abide by these protocols, if you think your health would be at risk because of your current underlying health issues, then don't cruise. Don't complain because you can't cruise, either.
  14. Well, yes there is "controlling of the virus" in the US. The results of tremendous amounts of testing are revealing that the vast majority here don't have it. The latest testing are picking up the asymptomatic carriers. Also result reports conflagrates both the antibody tests (those who have had it and no longer are infectious) and the antigen tests (those who are at the infectious stage). Thus creating some double counting. But most of the spread is from people ignoring the social distancing/masks etc. requests. These tend to be people under 40.
  15. Late in response here, but go with Cheers based on your NCL habits and likes. You'll get a receipt for each drink you "purchase" . If your bar tender is good, do leave an extra tip. And If you are on a Carnival ship with the Alchemy Bar, make full use. Enjoy the craft beer selection vs the big beer swill. Enjoy the better coffees and frappes.
