  1. I'm in need of transportation from MCO to the Radisson Resort at the Port (I'm coming in the day before my cruise). I've looked at the shuttle options, and they all seem to stop running by 12:30 or 1:00. Alas, my flight's later than that. What other options would be best for just one person? I don't want to rent a car because I wouldn't even drive it once I got to where I was going. I could do a private car service, I guess, although that's expensive. Frankly, I'm also open to just changing my hotel to one that has MCO and cruise shuttle service (or similar)--I realize
  2. I guess he lives in Florida...nice yard to hang out in during the pandemic lockdown, though, not that Florida has had much of one. His video has brought me some joy today. 🙂
  3. Oh man, I probably should have watched that behind the scene thing, huh? My bad. I see it now. Yeah. There’s something called “Indulge Outdoor Lounge”, which is the area with the hammocks and associated with the food hall and firepit (seems crazy to me when ships are so fire averse?)...maybe that’s what they mean? It wouldn’t surprise me if that cost extra, yeah. Sort of like Vibe, maybe. An extra fee but not as expensive as the exclusivity of the Haven? Of course, cushy chairs are “free” on the Waterfront, too, so...hmm. They’re clearly still ironing it all
  4. I can't find anything about a premium area... I've been going through everything listed on my reservation. They've got hammocks, for pity's sake...I mean, what's the fight over hammocks going to be like? Yikes. The infinity pools seem very RCI Solarium (adults only) to me. I doubt they'd actually restrict those deck areas by age, but the pools are clearly not for children to play in or for anyone to actually swim in. 🙂 I guess the buffet and MDR haven't made the list yet, although the Local should be free, shouldn't it? Everything just shows up as "Price $
  5. It felt really weird trying to choose a cabin on an unfinished ship...I kept going to other decks to see where X is on the ship and finding a white area labeled "to come". 😄 Of course, it wasn't a big worry since I'm in a studio, anyway. It'll be interesting to see how she comes together. As much as I love the look of the infinity pools and the expanded "waterfront" deck, I'm kind of hoping she still has a "normal" lido deck with a basic pool and bars. Maybe I'm not coming at it with the right mindset, of course, and embracing the new style. So much of the ship is taken
  6. Well, I pulled the trigger and booked her. As much as I was eyeballing fancy European trips, in the end, I just went with NYC-Bermuda. It should be interesting.
  7. I've been looking at booking Prima today (instead of working). I can't seem to make 2022 work (I already have cruises booked and none of Prima's itineraries or dates are totally working for me), but I'm sort of debating now between a 14-day Europe or B2B (NYC TA to Iceland and then Iceland around to London). Am I clinically insane? I guess so. Beautiful ship, though.
  8. My first cruise didn't ruin the others, but it led to them. I had never been interested in going on a cruise--I had the usual image people have of 24-hour buffets and trashy tourist ports and so on. My parents had done it a few times, though, and they decided to take me on one--Holland America out of Fort Lauderdale. I don't sail with HAL now, although I guess I have nothing against them. We joked the whole time that I was the youngest person on board (it wasn't quite true...). Anyway, I prefer what NCL and RCI provide, but HAL did a few things that I particularly remember and some
  9. I'm booked in a boardwalk balcony for August 2021 (if we're sailing). I'd booked it before Covid, though. I book different cabins depending on the cruise, the duration, the money, lots of things. August is my birthday, so that was a factor. I booked an aft balcony for NYE just because I could get one at an OK-ish price. I'd usually consider a balcony for a long cruise, but I booked a good inside for a 14-day next year with the intention of bidding on an upgrade if/when they offer it. Worst-case scenario, I have a good inside. I'm OK with that, but if I can get a balcony, even a bad
  10. I got my shots already. My next cruise, if it sails, is August 2021, but I'd booked it before Covid happened, so it wasn't like I figured "I have my shots, now I'll book." I've got August 2021, December-January, February-March (Star Trek), August 2022, and November 2022 booked. I'm hoping we can go maskless and fancy free by December or at least next March! Also, I need a bunch of money to pay for all this now...hmm. Hee hee.
  11. This was something I put up for someone else a while ago--I just took quick photos with my phone, they're not properly scanned. Otherwise, check out the past photos on the cruise website, where they've posted some shots from all of the major events. That doesn't give you everything, of course, like no one took any pictures of Dr. Noor's talk, but it should give you a general feel for it. In terms of what's happening in 2022, well...a lot of old stuff will be brought back, I imagine. The old script readings they do are very popular. We'll see a game show or two, the science talks, t
  12. I had my Star Trek cruise in March, which was one of the last sailings, I guess. July (not solo) was off. My non-cruise trip in August was off. My amazing 16-day cruise in a spa cabin in November? Off. New Year's, off...although that hasn't actually gone through yet. Next year's Star Trek got moved to 2022, so the next thing on the schedule is August of next freaking year (unless my family reschedules for next July).
  13. I'm in Texas. Our cases surged after the governor largely dismissed it and tried to reopen early, so...yeah. The numbers have dipped a little over the last week, but it's not enough to really matter yet. We're under a mask order (warning, followed by a $250 fine). Of course, my perspective is from the city, not from the state. I know a lot of the border areas have been slammed badly. There was a back-to-school event today in the city, and I know most/all districts are opening online initially, under the circumstances.
  14. I've signed up for the trial, although I haven't gotten the vaccine/placebo yet because apparently, the shipment from the manufacturer hasn't arrived at the clinic. So yes, I'll get the vaccine, given that I'll get it when it's not even finished trials.
