  1. We have only taken cruises as vacations. I want cruising to start up as much as anyone here. I do not want to pay for a cruise and have to worry about social distancing, masks and not being able to explore on my own. My biggest worry is if someone tests positive on the cruise. Will we be quarantined on the ship? Too many negatives for me to cruise right now. Will have to wait to see what the future holds. It stinks!!!! We can not change life right now. It is what it is. It sucks but we have t live it for now. All we can do is follow recommendations for masks and distancing. I work in healthcare and can assure all that this is not a hoax or over exaggerated. This truly is about life or death!
  2. 4 nights of specialty dining with 14 night cruise.
  3. A Covid test is only good for that day. Anyone exposed may not turn positive or have symptoms for 14 days. This would not assure you that no one on the ship has Covid. It will tell you they have not tested positive yet.
  4. NCL is hoping people will pay final payments so they do not have to give refunds but fcc instead. They also are hoping people will book now so they can keep their deposits. We do not know if any of these cruiselines will file for bankruptcy but if they do then they will owe no one their money. Not a chance I would take.
  5. Third and fourth now get beverage package in all cabins so you pay for gratuities.
  6. That is great but I never asked a question.
  7. I was on the Gem. The only reason I booked this cruise was for a last minute getaway. It was my first time cruising by myself. It cost me $260 total to board the ship. I could careless where my cabin was. I was just trying to point out that latitude status doesn’t always get you a better guarantee cabin.
  8. I booked a gty inside cabin once on NCL last minute. I am platinum. This cruise was really empty. I got assigned literally the worst cabin on the ship. All the way forward on deck eight. The motion and noise of crashing waves was unbelievable. I met a few people who booked the same as I did but later than I did and they got great locations. These people also had no or little latitude status. Just goes to show that latitude status does not matter.
  9. It is very iffy that cruises will sail by then. No matter what the promo I would not book anything until we see what this pandemic holds. JMO.
  10. We usually take 2 week cruises every other year. That moment when we pull out of port and I know that I now have two weeks of relaxation and fun. No work, no emails, no phone and no obligations. Someone waiting on me everyday! No one asking “ what’s for dinner?”. No meal planning or grocery shopping.
  11. Your font is terrible. Very hard to read.
  12. I understand that a balcony costs more than an inside but $3200 more is ridiculous. We used to only get balconies and then tried an inside cabin and found that we did not miss the balcony. Only in the room to sleep and change.
  13. Just did a mock booking for 2 ppl on the jade 13 night Caribbean cruise feb 1,2021. The best inside cabin comes to $3200 cheaper than the worst balcony. This is both with all the perks. I think I will pick an inside and pay my own gratuities with the $3200 I save.😀
  14. That is because the departments of public health excludes healthcare workers from the quarantine after travel rule.
  15. I am a nurse and see every day how this virus is killing people. Cruise ships are a Petri dish for spread of viruses. I want nothing more to go cruising again. This has been my only vacation destination for over ten years but it will not be safe until a vaccine is found, tested and proved. Give me a break. How can you even consider a cruise until this happens. It is not CDC fault nor ncl’s fault. It is the fault of a virus that no one saw coming or could have predicted its contagiousness or deadliness. Dear God have people not seen what this virus can do?
