  1. Looking forward to our first NCL cruise on the Breakaway in the Haven in Dec. The private space on a ship so large is very appealing. I loved the previous thread of the Haven food and look forward to someone posting the new updated menu
  2. We are also on the Breakaway in Dec..12/12. This is our 2nd reschedule and looks like a go this time. Used our bonus credits to bump to The Haven...which will be a first for us. We are so looking forward to New Orleans and the cruise
  3. Personally, I have never been a fan of the big buffet. Not because of the food but because if the people. It always seems like Black Friday at a department store...chaos and people fighting to get in the right position..table..etc. I will go for a late night snack but that is it.
  4. I can understand wearing a mask in the crowded areas of the ship...like the theater and other places indoors....just like it is recommended now. However..indoor dining is allowed without a mask once you sit down until you get up from the table as long as you are socially distanced. Outdoors...if socially distanced and stationary like on a lounge chair...the CDC does not recommend masks at hotels. A cruise ship is nothing but a floating hotel...same guidelines should apply.
  5. I am all for precautions and some of the requirements are expected. But what the CDC has just come out with is treating the cruise lines as public transportation, not as it really is - a floating hotel. The extreme extent of these guidelines take things back to extreme risk "lock down" type guidelines you would see at home. I do not go on a cruise for "Grab and go" meals to eat in my room. I want a nice dining experience. I want to be able to sunbathe outside on a lounge chair (properly social distanced) without my mask. Hawaii has ridged criteria for their islands and still you can enjoy yourself. If you are on a ship that is fully vaccinated, or 95% vaccinated, this seems highly overkill. My family has rescheduled a cruise several times and are now scheduled for December. We are in the Haven. Probably will spend most of the time in the Haven but I don't intend to eat in my room. I am not a socializer so distancing does not bother me. I don't mind staying away from crowds and plan to go on organized ship shore excursions (though none of our ports are Level I). I will wear a mask as per protocol on shore excursion. Let's have realistic guidelines.
  6. They have done studies in those who have had Covid 19. The antibodies that you get after having the infection can dissipate after as little as 3 months. You can get re infected despite having it once. So the idea of having had the disease, is not a "green light".
  7. Mine too. The name, the lot numbers and the dates and time rcvd. The administering body (mine was through a hospital system) keeps records.
  8. Already got my 1st vaccine, waiting until time for 2nd. I wouldn't cruise without it. Hubby same way. Now it is a waiting game before our adult daughter (29) can get hers. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine (single shot, made similar to the flu vaccine, vs MRNA) would likely be the best option for her. I want to cruise this December. This is the 3rd time scheduled and I don't want to reschedule again.
  9. Glad I rebooked my December cruise for Dec 2021 earlier this year. Got a much better deal than the 10% off they are offering and was able to upgrade cabin.
  10. We had rescheduled our original April 2020 cruise for Dec 2020. That isn't something we are comfortable with right now. So we have pushed it out to Dec 2021 (and got a much better cabin). I think by then things should be better
  11. I completely agree. Have yiu seen their daily infection numbers . I had some family members go down for a Disney vacation...unfortunately they all came back with Covid infections
  12. Personally, I rebooked our Dec 2020 cruise until Dec 2021. Partially because I need surgery on my knee and partially I want to wait until vaccines are completely out there and safely in place. However I am a little concerned that non medical experts appear to be dictating when cruising may resume..however that is still pending.
  13. Thanks and best wishes to you and your soon to be family. That in itself will be an adventure. Our adult daughter travels frequently with us since she is still single and has been looking forward to this cruise. Just a little delayed.
  14. Thanks. I guess things work out for the best. Snorkeling and walking will be much easier
  15. Thanks. Definitely have goals for post surgery therapy now.
