  1. No I need to sign up. I've been hesitant to get my hopes up. But I will. Time for optimism! 😀
  2. 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
  3. Thanx everyone for advice! Hoping for the best
  4. 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?
  5. 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?
  6. 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!
  7. 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
  8. 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!
  9. Looks like it is already sold out on our cruise. Oh well. Thanx for all the help everyone!
  10. We will be on the Vista next Fall. We definitely want FTTF. It does not appear to be available online this early. How early shud u book it to ensure u get it?
  11. We are considering the carnival vista and would like some advice on which cabin has the best aft facing balcony that is deep enough for full lounge chairs without turning them sideways? It looks to me like the two possibilities might be the Category HM Havana corner premium Vista or category HI Havana Aft extended balcony. Does anyone have a preference over these two? Are they both covered in a way that provide shade? Are they private? Is there another category of balcony that I may be missing? I looked at the suites and might consider moving up to them but the pictures onlin
  12. We are hoping to sail to South Pacific in fall 2021. Does anyone know if the Norwegian Jewel will do that itinerary again in 2021 and if so when it will be available to book? Also we are only interested in Aft suites with large balconies. I can't see anywhere how to know which Aft suites have arrest balconies. The stated sizes range wildly from 54 feet to more than 150 feet. And are the Aft suite balconies deep enough to have lounge chairs face the water. We don't like shallow balconies. Finally, how do those of you who have sailed the Jewel like it? We have bee
  13. We just returned from our second cruise on the crown. We have loved both cruises. They were our first two princess cruises. In July we will be on the star in Alaska. When I booked that cruise I thought it was an identical ship to the Crown. Now I understand it is not. For those of you who have been on both would you compare and contrast them? What differences will we notice and what are the positives and the negatives? Here are some specific things I am interested in – we have been in a vista suite E733 on both cruises on the crown. We will be in the same room on the star. Is it
  14. I'm with you fishin musician! Dominica a dump of an island? No way! Your beautiful pictures tell the real story. We can't wait to go back on this next cruise. Last year we felt like we had come to paradise. Some of the most unique experiences we have ever had and So beautiful.
