  1. Americans a very adventurous. America has more diverse cuisine than anywhere in the world. Any type cuisine from any culture, anywhere in the world, is available. Give up the stereotyping.
  2. I don't see how anyone could even think about getting on the cruise ship with all that is going on. I know about freedom and all that blah blah blah. But I just think it's crazy
  3. It can't be completely safe but it can be relatively safe. If cruising were to resume today, it would be unsafe.
  4. Hash does have the smell and texture of dog food . However I still like it once or twice a year. Herefords is the best but very hard to find.
  5. 1. The food is good and plentiful 2. The crew is attentive 3. The price is usually cheap Least favorite thing: The coffee, sorry
  6. Good luck wading through that sea of covid-19 to get to the ship
  7. I want one up on blocks in my driveway.
  8. Same guy who said cruising would resume in August
  9. They are trying to put on a happy face, but they are just rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic
  10. The cruise industry is in free fall
  11. Usually bankruptcy is not a choice.
  12. It is amusing to read back on everyone who was so positive that they were going to cruise this summer. The virus is dangerous and unpredictable and isn't going away anytime soon. It is especially dangerous to the cruising population that is top heavy with older folks (like myself) due to its ease of contagion. It's going to be a long time for folks to feel comfortable cruising. Maybe years
  13. True dat. But comparison to other cruise lines is valid. NCL is 30-40% higher than other lines. Nothing NCL advertises as free is actually free, in regard to perks.
  14. All good ideas. Shows would have to be dismissed by rows to avoid a traffic jam. I think service at bars would have to be discontinued. Table service only by servers in hazmat suit, lol.
  15. Short of pre-boarding testing there is no solution. Everything about a cruise makes for the perfect vector to spread this airborne disease. If you close the buffet then there will be more pressure on the MDR. Long lines to get in, tables really close together, etc. If you limit large groups what is everyone going to do for entertainment? You cannot limit the elevator to one person or one family. People using the stairs we'll have to touch the handrails. What is the solution for that? Sure you can clean them once an hour but theoretically that means everyone touching the germ for an hour. How many people go up and down the stairs every hour. Dozens if not hundreds. Bottom line, a cruise ship is just not designed for social distancing.
  16. The pandemic is going to be with us for a while. People need to stay with the quarantine/ mask program, not trying to push to open things up. I know everyone is sick of this but it is the only way to get it to away. Meanwhile pray for the vaccine.
  17. So far we have taken a road trip to Bryce Canyon Utah. A spectacular Adventure. We have taken the grandson camping up in the mountains in our pop up camper. This past weekend we took a road trip to the Grand Canyon. On the way home we stopped at the Grand Canyon Caverns. It's on old Route 66 and it is really something to see.
