  1. Got to agree with Steelers36, no particular discount. And, it can vary as to which is better, booking as a single journey (if you can) or doing it separate. For the most part we have found separate tends to be a little bit better. Another advantage to separate bookings is if you use EZ-Air. Air bookings don't become available until 330 days before disembarkation. We've found that booking air right away almost always provides a significant savings over prices available later so ... with separate bookings your inbound air journey becomes available just that much sooner. And, it's eas
  2. Not going to discuss the items I didn't quote because that would be against CC's COVID-19 discussion policy. Yes, the ruling of the appeals court changed in favor of the State of Florida. Not having a legal background, the language sounds to me like it was on some kind of technicality. Not sure though, hopefully someone else with expertise will chime in. The State of Florida had already submitted an emergency appeal to SCOTUS when the appeals court reversed itself. The suit filed by NCL is against the Florida state-equivalent of the Surgeon General regarding
  3. Of course they will. On one cruise I received a phone call from a fraternity brother from the 70s. The nostalgia made me remember the drinks we make up to take to football games in coolers. His favorite was a Velvet Hammer. I asked the bartender if he could make one. Turns out they've got a recipe book for oddball drinks - he found it, made it and it tasted just as bad as it did back in the day!
  4. I haven't been on the Sky Princess but every other Princess ship I've sailed has Disaronno.
  5. Copied from post #1: Orange status means the ship has reported cases of COVID-19 but is below the threshold for CDC investigation.
  6. We take a thin lightweight laptop but that's just us. I like the larger screen and a real keyboard. I could use our iPhone but it's just too small for serious work - we take longer cruises so some serious stuff needs to be handled now and then. Someday we might move to a decent-sized tablet.
  7. Thrak is absolutely correct, anything with a surge protector is a fire hazard due to peculiarities of ship-board wiring systems. They aren't fire hazards on land. We use an octopus power strip (Google it) as its unique design allows you to plug in all sorts of oddball chargers without covering up more than one outlet.
  8. Well, reading the actual article doesn't list Princess' specific ships, just what ports they'll sail out of. Los Angeles is included in the list. Be positive!
  9. Adults can have fountain sodas too. Cans (for both adults and minors) are not free but do get a 25% discount IIRC.
  10. Ridiculous is pretty rude language here so I beg to differ. We too would prefer a more sunny port cabin on a westbound TA in the northern hemisphere, especially when it's getting toward the winter months. It ain't a deal-breaker but given the choice we'd pick a starboard balcony.
  11. Nice detective work and analysis!
  12. So the passenger claims RCI falsified the positive test. When I read things like this I always ask myself, why would RCI intentionally falsify a test to show positive? What would be in it for them? This makes me doubt they falsified the test result as the only thing I can think of that might be a marginal plus for RCI would be them making an example of a passenger who probably knew they were misidentified as vaccinated and said nothing to correct the mistake. Even if that were the case, RCI would be in for a bigger downside if they were caught falsifying a test.
