  1. Well Father, it's a very risky investment right now. Hopefully a covid 19 vaccine will be developed soon. warmer weather will lessen the number of new covid 19 cases and a cure for those suffering from the affects of the illness will be found. Those factors will determine if and when CCL is a good stock to own. Best wishes
  2. I wouldn't be too anxious about booking a cruise until after a vaccine is developed and people are thoroughly inoculated. When they start will probably be a different time frame, probably much earlier. We are more concerned about a 'safe' carefree cruise. Safe travels if you go in May.
  3. Ick! Hope you didn't bring any new pets home. Don't want to panic you but I would now check the mattresses at home and also your luggage. Don't know if bed bugs or hair lice on grand kids is worse.
  4. Not saying it couldn't be the O but did you stay in a hotel/motel before or after your cruise? We've always found the beds on HAL to be very clean and first thing we do when on board or in a hotel is check the bedding for bed bugs
  5. We are so grateful that our cruise on the NA ended on 2/22/20 It seems like the corona virus erupted shortly there after We've discussed future cruises but I don't think we will do another cruise until a reliable vaccine is available This illness is really scary and being prone to lung issues we don't want to chance it We look forward to cruising again someday, til then good luck to all who have current plans
  6. Agreed! Darn good pea soup and they have some pretty fantastic pastries too. They have one pastry that sort of looks like an éclair that was heavenly. Love the Dutch Café
  7. Thanks rkacruiser. That sounds easy-peasy! If it's changed any we will post back!
  8. I guess that would help. Port Everglades on Saturday. Just wondering about security. Thanks
  9. My daughter volunteered to drop us off at our embarkation terminal. What ID do we need to provide at port to drive in? Also I would imagine she will pick us up. Same ID? How much of a hassle would this be? Usually we take a shuttle from the hotel or airport but now she lives down there Lucky us!
  10. Any recent cruisers remember if there are corkscrews in the cabins. We will be on the NA next week and hoping I don't have to pack extra items.
  11. OH no! I just did a paid upgrade that my PCC said was a really good deal. If the 1/28-1/31 deal is better can I ask for that better deal or am I out of luck? I'm okay with what I got but we are always looking for the best deal.
  12. NA. The offer was $25 pp per day. Maybe that's just the regular fee for NA?
  13. I just got an email regarding Club Orange for $25 per person. Sounded reasonable because it included priority boarding, debarking, tender lines, stateroom upgrades etc etc. Check you email box.
  14. LUV Southwest! Only thing I don't like is the awkward boarding routine if you don't pay up for priority boarding. We usually take direct flights from MKE to FLL and oddly they are usually cheaper than flights with stopovers.
  15. We've only sailed on 3 so far. As of now our best of the 3 is the NA and we have another cruise set for Feb on her. We like it because the size of the Verandah cabins are slightly larger than the NS. We have to agree that it would be great if it had a Dutch Cafe on it. NS was nice and enjoyed the pea soup from the Dutch Cafe. Our first HAL cruise was on the MS Amsterdam and we liked the smaller crowds. We sailed prior to a retrofit and it felt like an older ship. So, I guess we've loved all the HAL ships we sailed and looking at doing others depending on ports of call.
