  3. Just as an FYI we returned from our house in Cabo today. Both yesterday and today a Carnival ship stopped just outside of Cabo for 30 to 45 minutes to allow pax to take pictures and then left as they were not allowed to port in Cabo. For those who are still considering taking their cruise please double check that you will actually be able to stop at the ports on your cruise. I am not sure anyone would be thrilled with a cruise to nowhere. An NCL ship was in port today so I have no clue what ships are and are not allowed.
  4. More issues for the PAX! https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/plane-evacuating-cruise-passengers-re-routed-after-turkey-denies-landing-permission/ar-BB10dywH?ocid=spartandhp
  5. Westerdam Update: We can confirm that we have received conditional preliminary clearance for Westerdam guest disembarkation from two different ports. We are currently working through all the various required logistical support in both ports to determine the best course of action for our guests. Our decision point from a navigational perspective is Feb. 9 at midnight PST; (Monday 4:00 p.m. on the ship). All are safe and well cared for. We are providing free internet and phone access for both guests and crew to stay in contact with their loved ones. Guests have been provided a full refund and a future cruise credit. Despite media reports, we have no reason to believe there are any cases of coronavirus on board. We have also received a letter from the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment affirming that they have full confidence in all our medical reporting and the quality of our medical staff and services on Westerdam. This assessment was done in concert with the Ministry of Health of the Netherlands and was another important substantiation for our disembarkation clearance. We sincerely appreciate their continued patience and cooperation as we manage through these extraordinary circumstances.
  6. We were on 3 weeks prior. You were unable to watch regular TV unless you watched the safety video. We didn't have an issue. Smoothest muster we have ever had!
  7. According to an article I read the tax applies to tourists who are spending more than 24 hours in the State of Baja.
  8. I just had it last week. We got a lobster roll sandwich and had a choice between a steak and mahi mahi for lunch. There were also chips and dip and a fruit salad. Way to much for us to eat and I can eat. All excellent though!
  9. We walked out of our cabin on the Nieuw Statendam yesterday at 8:30am and were at FLL at 9:12am.
  10. I booked early and got it for $299.95!
  11. I couldn't agree more. We've had several Pinnacle dinners on out aft wrap around including one for 8 friends.
  12. On my upcoming 7 day cruise on the Nieuw Statendam the cost of pre-paying for the premium plan is $111.99. After looking at the prices shown here it may best for me to purchase it now.
