  1. Wondering whether the largest ships will allow more room to plan for physical distancing, provided that passenger numbers are less than capacity.
  2. We had a minisuite on the Jewel, under the area between the buffet and the pool area. We could hear them re-arranging (dragging) furniture on the deck above in the evening (after 9/10:00). We didn't choose our stateroom, it was an upgrade in the days before the bidding process.
  3. We have had a number of muster drills on the deck like you describe, but on our most recent cruises, Carnival Magic Feb 2019, we were in one of the dining rooms and on the Bliss April/May 2019 we were in the Local.
  4. Agree. And from our observation, anti-NCL; if anything bad has happened in the cruise world there is often an NCL ship behind him in his thumbnail photo on YT.
  5. If you able to log into your account on NCL's website, your upcoming cruise should be listed on your account and the final payment date will be in the "summary". Our next cruise is January 2021 and the final payment date is in September. We booked a personal cruise consultant at NCL.
  6. You may have already done this, but there are several YouTube series of cruises to Alaska on NCL, including recent (2019) ones on the Bliss. I haven't been to Alaska yet but found that watching these vlogs has given me a good idea of what I'd like to see. We've sailed on the Bliss three times on the west coast and love the ship. It would probably be the itinerary that would be the deciding factor. Enjoy!
  7. This may be the same cruise as ours (Getaway) and we will keep an eye on it as the final payment date approaches. There are so many things about this cruise to love, but we will wait if necessary. I think that the Getaway is supposed to be in Europe this summer. If they have to change her itinerary, maybe she could sail out of another US port in January if NYC is still closed?
  8. Really enjoyed your review, very honest and straightforward. We've done the Bliss three times on the West Coast and although we love many things about the Bliss, we also like the Jewel and Dawn class ships because of fewer passengers.
  9. I agree with all your comments. You mention San Pedro and we've done it twice, the first being the first port of call after the Panama Canal and subject to the CG inspection, which tested everyone's patience. The second time we arrived after 1:00 p.m. and there were no lines! Just goes to show how much something can change from one time to the next! Love the Cavern Club too.
  10. We loved the Mexican Riviera cruises on the Bliss that we did in 2019 and on the Star in 2018, both in the spring. We found NCL's excursions in these ports to be well done (we did tours rather than beach days). On disembarkation, we do excursions from the ship to LAX because we get a tour on the way to the airport and don't have to manage luggage, and we had a great guide on the Los Angeles Overview & Farmers Market.
  11. We are on the Getaway in January 2021 and have the dining package as well as Platinum dining. We've never been on the Getaway so this is a really interesting post.
  12. My impression is that there are many negative reviews on Facebook. Maybe it is easier for some to post there. We've been on the Bliss three times, most recently in April 2019. The Jersey Boys was the best we'd seen it and we saw Britain's Finest every night. We met some ladies who had a 10-year-old grandson with them and he was really enjoying himself. We've never cruised with kids so I can't offer anything from that perspective but the Bliss is a beautiful ship with a relaxing vibe that can truly keep you occupied and entertained for a week.
  13. Costa is owned by Carnival so aren't they the Carnival of Europe?
  14. This sounds similar to something recently on YouTube from EECC Travels, they were on the last sailing of the Bliss to Alaska this year. It was mentioned that the Entourage teen group was at laser tag when it was stopped.
