  1. I’ve done both cruises and loved both. Either would be very relaxing and fun at the same time. If you guys love sea days, the Hawaii cruise is magnificent, but if you prefer port days, I recommend you go with the Caribbean cruise because you can get antsy on a Hawaii cruise if you struggle with sea days.
  2. That really sucks. I’m sorry you had to cancel. I hope your new vacation plans will be awesome though!
  3. I think that makes it abundantly clear that Asia cruises will be some of the last to restart.
  4. You did truly get an upgrade because the Caribe deck balconies are bigger.
  5. I recommend pricing out The rest of you doing a seven day cruise followed by all of you doing the 14 day cruise. That would be the safest bet that could possibly save you some money over you guys booking the 21 day cruise and him having to book the 14 day cruise in a separate cabin. I do think it’s too risky for him to book the 21 day cruise and show up a week late. It was already risky before the pandemic, and now with the pandemic, it seems entirely too risky.
  6. It’s kind of odd for them to choose the deck with the convenient aft deck access rather than an ordinary deck like Baja. Caribe and Dolphin have the bigger balconies and Mini Suites. I hope you enjoy the convenience of Lido deck; we have when we’ve stayed on it.
  7. I told myself I just had to jump in when we flew to HI because I knew I needed the vaca. As soon as we landed in HI, my anxiety dissipated. Once you’re onboard the ship, it’ll probably all melt away. Have a fun, healthy, safe cruise!!
  8. I absolutely love the idea of a world cruise actually being almost a year long instead of a few months. I also like that it includes Christmas and New Year’s. The pricing does seem to be in line with the shorter world cruises. The only thing that I believe is messed up is the non-refundable requirement. To think that one would need to go non-refundable on a cruise 2 years from now while we are amidst a pandemic is unbelievable. With how commonly world cruises sell out anyway, there really isn’t a good reason to require it to be non-refundable so early.
  9. On another cruise lines message board, it was announced that the government there said they are re-opening Grand Turk in November if I remember correctly. The cruise lines are supporting their reopening. Im so glad because Grand Turk is soooooo beautiful and fun and relaxing for a port day, IMO.
  10. It’s concerning how you have two different passenger experiences with Norwegian within approximately a month but at two different ports, and they varied drastically, from being well taken care of to basically being dumped off. They’ve got to get things straight and consistent; otherwise it’s too risky for pax.
  11. This often seems to be the case with pre-cruise hotels. There is value in booking through them though, because they include transfers from the airport and then transfers to the port; plus there is usually a representative at the hotel for questions if you have any. Some people prefer to be escorted semi along the way, and that serves as some extra value. If that doesn’t matter to you, you can definitely save a lot of money booking independently.
  12. Normally, I would recommend the northbound followed by the southbound, but since Holland America actually offers a 14 day that goes to some unusual ports, including our main city of Anchorage, I would recommend that one. You get to see some areas that other cruise ships don’t.
  13. Bingo is one of my favorite cruise activities, and I am not of the older age bracket at all. Deal or No Deal would be really fun, too, but as an addition, not a replacement. I do remember that celebrity used the wooden cards on our 2017 cruise so not compatible with Covid. Maybe they will switch to disposable paper.
  14. I was wondering about the holiday sailings. Flights are so hard to get and expensive typically around the holidays; it would be difficult to have to cancel and find an alternative at the last minute.
