  1. This...and on Azamara it's cultishly pathetic for about 1/3 of the pax.
  2. +1 I don't understand why people go to Antarctica or (especially) So. Georgia and don't land. Landings are magic.
  3. ABN can you send me a note? I'm at my cc handle at gmail.com Have questions about land tours/groups. Thanks S
  4. O class only til end of March basically. One just loops from Miami. *yawn*
  5. It's OK. If the herbs don't work out, they can bring in the Witch Doctor with his Magic Chicken Bones.
  6. It's my understanding that most if not all of the physical schools in hotspots are closed, and kids are learning online.
  7. As long as they don't take away my emotional support snake, I'll be fine.
  8. Most interesting to me remains the death curve by age. On a percentage basis (age x-axis, death rate y-axis), it's upward slope, the end. For lots of influenzas (which kill far more, yes, even this year) and related diseases, the very young are also at risk. Apparently not here.
  9. They are still piecing it together but it seems that both infection rates and mortality rates skew older. So does O's demo of course.
  10. Seriously? You're going with the reductio-ad-absurdum argument that hey, there's a risk of tripping over your doormat? *smh* Look, I'm a shareholder of NCLH, I get it, but, c'mon man.
  11. Thank you. I stand corrected.
  12. We haven't been aboard since the Spa vendor switch. Previously, there were 1-2 vegan choices standalone for each course, plus the spa-branded four course healthy fixed menu. On the spa-branded menu, at least three of the four courses were vegan, and at least 2-3 were picked/repeated from the stand-alone offerings. I am not vegan but I like to try new food.. For my personal preference, the vegan apps/deserts were tastier than the mains. Objectively, the vegan dishes came at the proper temperature/doneness almost every time. (Every time? I can't recall.)
  13. Maybe it's just me but I would think bedding would be equally/more subjective than food. Our mattress at home is marketed as "Rock of Gibraltar". It's softer than the floor, but might not be softer than a really plush carpet on floor. The upshot is that no hotel/ship/guest-bedroom mattress will ever remind us of home. I would bet other people have their own Goldilocks Zones for mattresses as well. Life goes on for us (what would we do, never travel?), but maybe for some, the differences in firmness are just too egregious.
  14. There's no point in fighting the cheerleaders or the corp accounts. I have appreciated your posts.
