  1. We have been planning a 40th anniversary trip of a lifetime since before Covid and it has been canceled more times than I can remember. Finally we have hope that we actually have a plan that will go. We are booked on the Norwegian spirit for the 14 day Tahiti And Hawaii cruise. It's not until next May. 11 months is a long time but I want to actually start planning and dreaming. It's been along time since we've been on Norwegian. Does anyone have any reason to think that this cruise might be canceled? I wouldn't think it would be because of Covid itself by then but possibly because of changes
  2. Thanx everyone for great advice. We just booked 9710 an Aft suite. Wish the balcony was deeper but everything else seems perfect. And that itinerary. Wow! Never been to any of these islands except Maui. Just wish it wasn't over a year away. Countdown begins!
  3. Excited that Norwegian is sending the spirit on the Hawaii and Tahiti itinerary next year! We were supposed to be on the Jewel and it was canceled for April of this year. We are booking May 31, 2022. Never been on the spirit. I know it's been totally redone. We would've been OK with a regular balcony cabin if they had one with an extended balcony deep enough for lounge chairs to face the water. I don't see anything like that but correct me if I'm wrong. Even the aft suite looks like the balcony is not deep enough for that. Does anyone know for sure? I'm leaning tow
  4. We are about to book the regal for a cruise next year. We have only been on the crown before. And stayed twice in E733, an Aft Suite. We loved it. But we have heard that there are deeper balconies maybe on dolphin deck. Is that the same on regal? Are the aft suites basically the same as on the Crown? For those of you who have stayed in an Aft suite which would you recommend as your favorite?
  5. We are considering the trans Atlantic on the Norwegian escape in November. For us a balcony large enough for two full recliners is a requirement. Also privacy with no one staring down on us. The haven looks out of our price range. What mini suite or balcony cabins have balconies that would meet our needs. I can't really tell from the deck plans
  6. No I need to sign up. I've been hesitant to get my hopes up. But I will. Time for optimism! 😀
  7. A few months ago there was discussion about whether Norwegian would re-route the Jewel and not do the Tahiti-Hawaii route next year. Hoping that is off the table and the cruise will go. JbCallender are u doing anything land based before or after the cruise? We are also hoping to do a few nights at the Hilton Moorea
  8. Thanx everyone for advice! Hoping for the best
  9. We have been planning our 40th anniversary cruise for so long now. We are planning to go April 15 on the 14 day cruise on the Jewel to Tahiti and Hawaii. A few months ago I heard a lot of talk about this cruise being canceled. But I haven't heard anything about that for a while. Has anyone else heard anything from Norwegian about this cruise being canceled? And I know that no one knows the future for sure but what do you think the chances that we will be cruising again by mid April?
  10. Ok I am very confused. I JUST booked April 15 Jewel to Tahiti and Hawaii. And I see nothing online or from my travel agent that this cruise will be cancelled. Only cruises thru Feb. I am in process of booking air an land hotels. Should I stop? Does anyone have certain confirmation that Jewel will not be in Tahiti next year?
  11. Thanx everyone! So helpful. Looking to book this trip and hope the virus is done or we have a vaccine. We want to stay a few nights in Moore’s beforehand and I just saw that the Intercontinental has closed permanently because of the virus. So sad. Huge overreaction I believe but it’s the fearful world we now live in. Blessings to all in these days!
  12. We are considering the Norwegian jewel 14 day Tahiti and Hawaii cruise next April as our 40th anniversary trip of a lifetime. Sure hoping the pandemic is done by then! We have been on a few Norwegian ships but not the jewel. Maybe some of you can answer one or more of our questions? We are looking at the aft penthouse suite with the extended balcony. We would also consider the foreward facing suites with a larger balconies but we are worried about the wind. Any experiences anyone can share? We really love a quiet private adults only sundeck that has decent shade. If y
  13. We have generally loved thermal suites. Especially the ones with a thermal pool. Questions on the Vista which we will be on this year: Can you buy this In advance or do u have to run there and beat the crowd when u get on? Howdoes the thermal suite compare to other ships? We have been on Norwegian getaway. Loved it there. Princess Crown - ok but no pool. I have often used the thermal suite to shower so my wife can use the cabin bathroom. Are the showers private enough to do that or do u have to leave and go to the locker room? thanx!
  14. Looks like it is already sold out on our cruise. Oh well. Thanx for all the help everyone!
