  1. Also a favourite, the detractors will note no Promenade compared to all the bigger classes. The solarium is great with the retractable roof, the location of Schooner and the couple of restaurants in the same area is ideal. Lot of glass and crew/pass ratio used to be slightly better than the big ships too
  2. regular pricing on the drinks with beers being $5-6 and cocktails at $9-10, and many wines by the glass at under $10 seems reasonable so a $300 shareable tab would go quite a ways for me and my wife.
  3. Liked deck 8 3up and 3down for decks so could walk it.(Freedom Class), bigger than an inside and light
  4. Have stayed in promenade on Liberty multiple times, including the Aforementioned Ben and Jerry room, pre COVID it allowed me to do back to back because of cost savings. Would do it again,
  5. Freedom class is nice, had planned a SJ trip on Freedom a couple of years back, never made it happen. I too would love some longer voyages on these 3 sisters but to get a factor of 7 to work maybe 12/9 instead of 8/6. Never say never, the new future of cruising could be just about anything....
  6. This is a great start, that would be another thread, each poster adds the next phrase, like an improv exercise
  7. Vote for Odyssey, longer cruise, still good dining options lots of stuff for kids including bumper cars and the 270 is a great chill place,.
  8. Hard no and I have zero sense of smell. Have reported smokers on balcony next to me and would again.
  9. Dealbreaker? Not being able to afford to go as the cruise lines respond with “normal’ pricing 50% capacity and millions of FCCs supporting the demand.
  10. No problem, I wish as a Canadian I could get there (and back) without having to isolate
  11. Yes they will cruise, all passengers vaccinated/tested. Not CDC controlled.
  12. Sure but 200,000 gt vs the 225gt? of Oasis and the 155?gt of Freedom, still curious if they will be 'standard' layout vs the Oasis neighbourhooods.
  13. I guess maybe the Icon class could fill a spot when they start coming out, without being a Mega-ship give you an option from being on the big boys
  14. If it’s San Juan vs Fl and 7vs 6 I take Explorer and the 7 night.
  15. If you mean you have unused FCC cert just get the number and apply it, processing in my experience has been almost instantaneously done
  16. I was a little perplexed when I realized this too. Freedom class have a lot to offer and i too would love to do 14 day B2B in southern Caribbean. Have done Liberty and actually don’t mind Galveston departure but still limited in ports.
  17. Also have been on Liberty multiple times and having been on Oasis class the only thing my wife missed on occasion was Central Park, but we have found that leaving from TX has had us meet many genuine people(not saying other embarkations haven't been great)
  18. seasickchris I know you haven't been back in a while so unsure if you have booked anything. I wanted to add my .02. When checking flights, check on flights to San Juan over Florida. Can do 2 weeks and see some of the iconic beaches in Aruba, Barbados, the picturesque houses in Curacao, etc. If price sensitive would look at MSC out of Martinique/Guadaloupe. MSC is agressive in the Caribbean but the product is not for everyone-check some reviews here no matter what airline you choose.
  19. As others have mentioned-take care of you. i have a daughter in the ER and she after a year has had to take a little more time for herself to recharge alittle bit I am also hopeful for end of this year for any kind of cruise.
  20. Only Spring through Summer, so if I’m cruising Sep-March, not available and now during COVID it’s worsening
  21. Long ways away from going anywhere. Would book an AI in Curaçao or St Maarten or Jamaica, still have hope on a cruise in December.
  22. It’s a connecting flight for anywhere that we fly, Galveston is usually 1-200 less per person for flights. Also agree that if going across the ocean I look at Itinerary first, pricing, ship. Caribbean is a whole different discussion, we factor in flights/shuttles as well
  23. I have read the links too for Grand Cayman that were shared in other threads and my take is that the gov't official is giving a date and using the words crucible for Covid-vs the regular 'petri dish' analogy. It reads more like a blanket statement. Once cruise lines can show they can cruise safely and what that looks like, they will be in along with everybody else.
  24. Hmm, I’ll take your crystal ball gazing, projections nationally for 100million vaccine timeline? Looks like 6 months ish?
