  1. My offer only has short cruises with the exception of a couple out of Galveston. I've already done 2 in April out of Galveston so not doing any more. Will probably pass on these offers.
  2. I guess my complaint is the distance of the hump rooms from the aft elevator. You’re right - it is not a unique situation to deck 8.
  3. I am a bit ambivalent about the dinners at CK. I concur that the CK filet is among the best on the entire ship so if you are a steak eater, I recommend NOT missing steak night, whenever it is. The Concierge will help you with that. The other evening meals are not always great, IMO. We are somewhat pedantic eaters so when they try to get too fancy, they usually lose me. Breakfast is oh-so-awesome in CK. So much less frantic than in the MDR or Windjammer. The view is so nice and the service is usually very good. The food is standard breakfast fare, but the surroundings and low stress make it wonderful. I'll be honest. I have never eaten a lunch in the CK. I cannot assess that one.
  4. My only complaint about those deck 8 hump rooms is that it CAN be a long walk from the aft elevators. Since you have to go completely around restaurant row it can sometimes be a bit of a slog. It's really quiet on deck 8 behind the restaurants though....and you're so close to Central Park. I enjoyed the Deck 8 hump balconies that we have had even though I complained about the walk every time.
  5. Definitely don’t miss flying to get to a cruise. With any luck, we will be within 1.5 hours of the 3 major Florida ports before cruising resumes. Can’t wait !
  6. John, as busy as you have been lately, I’m not surprised that you aren’t missing cruising...yet.
  7. I've done 3 Empress L&S so far. I'm thinking about doing 1 more. All have been successful (if not stressful, in 1 case) but all ended well in the end.
  8. Cruise docs and luggage tags are generally available at 49 days prior to cruise date (7 weeks) but sometimes it can be delayed if you are using a travel agent or if you are using Air2Sea. We received our cruise docs for our upcoming NAV cruise (Nov 6) at exactly 49 days prior to the cruise although I still feel confident that this cruise will be cancelled.
  9. Add me to the brainless group. I have 21 cruises booked between Nov. 6, 2020 and April 10, 2022. I feel confident that the cruises in Nov and Dec of this year will be cancelled and perhaps a few at the beginning of 2021. I hope not, but I won't be surprised. As @twangster mentioned, I have gotten back every penny that is owed me from the 6 cancellations that have already occurred. I have gotten some incredible deals on Lift & Shifted cruises. I feel my risk is very low.
  10. I wouldn’t be surprised to find that this proposed legislation would include some type of liability protection for the cruise lines. Even though they are foreign flagged ships, they are American Corporations. I suspect that the cruise lines are looking for legal protection against liability suits.
  11. You betcha. I am looking forward to meeting you, too !
  12. Awesome !!! I completely agree that it was too rare an opportunity to pass up.
  13. I'm not sure ! It's been so long since I've been on a Radiance class ship I can't remember where the old CL used to be. It's 1054
