  1. Ya, the S class ships were designed from the start for specialty dining. The M class ships were designed for one specialty dining restaurant.
  2. Sure, you have nothing to lose.
  3. Oh, I should add that one location I would never want is where people line up to tender off the ship, those rooms would really be bad.
  4. It's really interesting to hear different people's thoughts on different cabin locations on the ships. I've been in a few locations, all aft 1/3 of the ship with balconies and liked each one for different reasons. My favorite location is always the cabin I had on my last cruise!
  5. All I know is that when X finally has a real cruise, these boards (web servers) are going to probably crash, with everyone wanting to know and people reporting, lol!
  6. When I saw the comment I kind of thought that it wouldn't work very well because all the FCC's that booked would be behind others so FCC money would move forward in the system, yet again. X needs to flush out the FCC's as soon as they can.
  7. I saw a comment somewhere: one cruise line (not X) did a 'first booked, first to go' type of thing but hopefully X has a better approach, like shown above.
  8. Wow, that would be quite the trip, I need to check that out for future reference!
  9. You somehow posted this on an old thread instead of creating a new post?
  10. "Normally Santorini and the other Mediterranean ports are overrun with tourists, which would detract from the enjoyment. " Wait a minute, not true at all! I went at the beginning of the season, first cruise or second, it was great. I had heard about all the people and heat, go early or late in the season and the crowds won't be a problem, the heat well it should be ok and it was perfect temps for me but you're on your own on that.
  11. I didn't read all the comments but I didn't see anyone else point out: even if it sails, I would sort of wonder how much fun it will be. I think it's very safe to assume that most shore stuff will be shutdown even if you are allowed to walk freely (which I'm not sure you will). The X excursions will be limited also I would think. I'm just thinking for that amount of money I'm not sure it will/would be worth it.
  12. If you want better pricing you'll have to wait until all the FCC's move thru the system. After all the FCC money moves thru the pricing will start moving back to a more reasonable fare.
  13. Ya, I don't think I can see myself doing a 7 day cruise, except maybe alaska (I did). I know it's different for people but for me a 7 day cruise is like 5 days, 13 days is about right for me. So, I might not be cruising for a while it looks like.
  14. It seems like cruising is in about the same situation as it was one year ago. All the FCC's were talking about mid-summer, late summer, then there was the people pushing trips into the fall. I can't believe how long the pandemic has lasted, and there still is not truly a 'real' end in sight. It's just crazy.
  15. I think they might have to go with a plan that to fly you need to get the shot/s. I think that's the only way to get one step closer to resuming (for US).
