  1. Great! I look forward to meeting you onboard the Star.
  2. Who else will be boarding the Norwegian Joy on March 8 in Los Angeles for her Mexican Riviera cruise? I look forward to hearing from you.
  3. Who else will be boarding the Norwegian Star on April 9, 2020 in New York City for her transatlantic cruise to Southampton? I look forward to hearing from you.
  4. Hello. I will be on the Joy for this Panama Canal cruise. I look forward to meeting you. Glenn
  5. I will be disembarking the Joy on Sunday, Feb. 2 in Miami (Super Bowl Sunday in Miami). Will there be Uber and taxi availability for transfer from the port to MIA? I'm thinking that there should be plenty of availability because the Super Bowl travelers (to hotels and to the stadium etc.) won't be until later in the day. What do you think? Thanks for your help.
  6. Can I walk from the Santa Fe train depot. on Kettner in San Diego to the Cruise terminal? Is it a difficult walk with one bag? How long is the walk? Thank you.
  7. Hello. I just booked this cruise today as a single. I'm Glenn from Long Beach, California. I look forward to meeting you onboard the Joy.
  8. I look forward to meeting you on the ship. We should have nice warm weather until we reach New York City. I have a drink package so I'll be at the bars A LOT!
  9. Hi guys. I just booked this cruise on the Bliss from Los Angeles. I am cruising as a solo. The title of this post says "Nov. 4", but I think the embarkation is on Nov. 3 in Los Angeles. I look forward to meeting you onboard the Bliss! Glenn
  10. Who will be joining me on the Amsterdam on August 12, 2019 for 14 night Alaskan cruise? I look forward to hearing from you.
  11. I apologize for the typographical error. Need to be a more careful proofreader!
  12. Yeah! Carnival Splendor is now sailing out of Long Beach Harbor (23 hour delay!) Fair winds and following seas for the Carnival Splendor and I hope to see her safely back at her dock next Saturday.
  13. Since Splendor has not yet left the harbor and is now accompanied by two tug boats, I'm guessing that she will return to the dock after Independence departs this evening. Not sure if they will cancel the Splendor cruise or offer an even shorter (5 day) cruise (just guesses by me). I agree that Carnival definitely made the correct decision to stay in Long Beach. In 2010 or course, she was stranded at sea for over 72 hours without power, propulsion or electricity. The guests were fed spam and were forced to poop in biodegradable bags since the toilets didn't work. I remember that Carnival was very generous in their compensation at that time. Carnival's obligations (after passenger safety of course) are to their shareholders (including me), so I'm sure that they made the correct decision to stay in Long Beach rather than to risk problems when off the coast of Mexico. I'm glad that you are not offended by an offer of $50 OBC for a shortened cruise with 1/3 of the ports missed because of mechanical problems, but as a shareholder, I'm greatly offended for the harm to the reputation to a company which would treat their "guests" this way. I'm looking forward to when the new Carnival Panorama home ports in Long Beach, later this year.
