  1. Trust me. If Dr Fauci says it's ok to sail, we would be sailing. He has the power, in certain political parties that are in power, to dictate policy.
  2. Here you go. No sail order by CDC. From now to Nov 1. Cruise lines are furious! Contact Biden and get it changed! https://www.10tv.com/article/news/health/coronavirus/covid-cdc-cruise-sail-order/507-349a6208-9ab3-4078-8965-04a179d2d2bb
  3. Do you have to book the cruise thru Amex to get this invitation? This cruise was thru USAA.
  4. I have Amex Platinum. Sailing on Riviera in Dec 2021. How does Amex wine tasting work? How much does it cost? How do you set it up? Is it on every cruise? Thanks.
  5. I don't mean to "beat this dead horse", but, ---How does a $5 cash tip to a bartender get handled? Does he have to save every transaction slip and show to the purser so the purser can check to see if you removed gratuities? That seems like a lot of work for the dozen or so bartenders aboard. Bartender would have to "set aside" his cash tips and the transaction slips that produced the tip for his entire shift and keep track of how much tip money went with each slip. Lots of work.
  6. Pinotlover. Do you give the daily gratuities AND give individual cash tips?
  7. Thanks Pinotlover. We do what you do on our past cruises. However, I still would like to know--does the cruise line distribute ALL of the daily gratuities it collects? OR, can it keep some of those daily gratuities for themselves? Thanks for answer about, ability for crew

  9. To me, that might mean that the cruise line can distribute all or a portion of the total gratuities they collect. Hope we get clarification on this. Also, clarification on ---if you give a tip to crew members, they cannot keep it and must turn it in.
  10. ORV. HD can speak for himself, but I read "it is true that SOME of the gratuity MIGHT go to employees from the cruise lines revenue"..
  11. I'm interested in what hawaiidan said about gratuities. Is it true that the daily gratuities charge does NOT ALL go to the crew members? If true, I might change my strategy and give money to the people that serve me.
  12. Smokeyham--you and I are on the same page regarding investments. Check out this video. Sorry about the short ad in the beginning, but, scroll to 2 minutes 28 seconds to see what a good investment Norwegian is. Perhaps people will make enough to buy a "free drink package"!! We will see. https://www.cnbc.com/video/2020/12/07/cramer-pandemic-caused-a-changing-of-the-guard-on-wall-street.html?&qsearchterm=cramer
  13. OK--let's see how good of a stock picker I am. My average buy price is $17.04 (since Sep). Today the closing price is $26.50. The highest price over the last 52 weeks is $59.78 (that was a year ago when Covid was barely around and EVERY Norwegian ship was sailing!!!). Cramer likes NCL as a good cruise line stock.
  14. Thanks for the info---my cruise is 10 days--looks like $100 OBC. I'll take that. I will not sell that stock. As soon as the Vaccine kicks in the stock will go much higher. Have been buying it since Sep. Up 55% so far. I do not care about income tax (except for my RMD's). The stock is in an IRA (one of the greatest investment accounts invented by our government (only Roth is better). The stock keeps going higher AND NO SHIP IS SAILING. What does that tell you? Give it 6-12 months and it will be much higher. Recommend BUY.
