  1. Personally, I wouldn't. I think it's very much a case-by-case basis. You have to look at yourself, your family, people around you, where you're from/going, etc. Is it maybe a little socially irresponsible to go on a cruise if you're coming from the Seattle area (or really anywhere, tbh)? Probably. Does that mean it won't be fine if everyone takes the proper hygiene precautions? Definitely not. I'm tentatively scheduled to go on the Encore April 5. I actually haven't booked yet 😂My friends all booked a while ago, and I usually book within a month of cruising and get good deals...I a
  2. Several things I just want to add... I really don't think the other lines will cancel unless they absolutely have to for some reason or other. Let's be honest, Princess needs this. For whatever reason, they've had all the issues. That with the associated bad press plus their older demographic makes sense for cancellation. It won't be good for them, but it was necessary. They're also allowing full refunds PLUS FCC...their refund offers are pretty good, honestly. If Carnival (who owns Princess) was going to cancel, they would've done both at the same time most likely. It
  3. This will always be mind-blowing to me, alcohol involved or not. The fact that grown-ass adults think that physically fighting like this is an acceptable way to deal with an issue is completely insane to me. I know plenty of people who have had too much to drink, myself included, and still don't act like this. People who act like this when drinking also act like this when not drinking. So no blaming the beverage package here. Let's be honest, they don't all seem to be the most upstanding members of society. I mean, if the shoe fits... #sorrynotsorry but this is just sad
  4. Yes, it may be in the contract that they have the right to charge you, but I don’t think they actually would. Even though Princess seems to be having the only issues right now, I don’t think any of those passengers were charged extra for their days spent on the ship in quarantine. Just like when cruises get held up for extra days due to weather, those passengers aren’t charged the extra days. This is also not the cruise lines’ fault, and those passengers chose to sail during hurricane season. It’s totally within the cruise lines’ right to do so, but they wouldn’t. The extra costs the cruise li

  6. The price inflation is absolutely ridiculous. I was just about to book my April cruise on Encore, given the low price...and they have now almost TRIPLED the price. That’s absurd. The only reason I didn’t yesterday is because I was flying and then had to go straight to work. However, I am going to wait it out. I know the cruises are not going to fill up, and I suspect they only inflated the prices today since it’s the first day people can cancel. They are smart, obviously, and know that people want to cancel and rebook for cheap...so they said you can’t cancel until 3/10 and jacked up the pric
  7. Hey all... Just two quick questions in preps for my upcoming cruise on Encore. I feel like I know the answers, but just want to make sure. 1) Does anyone know if you can use OBC for Vibe passes? 2) Does the social media internet package support iMessage and/or video calls via FaceTime, FB, or WhatsApp? I had a package on my last cruise and was able to video chat, I just don't remember if it was a regular internet package or the social media package. If anyone who has sailed more recently could help, that would be great! Thanks in advance everyone
  8. This is a completely horrible accident. Yes, it was an accident. I think most agree on that...no one thinks the grandfather did this purposefully. Were they right to charge him? Yes, unfortunately. At the end of the day, it was negligence...sadly, this act of negligence resulted in a terrible outcome. Accidents happen, sometimes with unfortunate outcomes that have consequences. The main issue here is with trying to place blame on RCCL and all the statements being released against them. I understand a lawyer's job is to do everything they can in their power, but anyone with two eyes
  9. It's definitely not really "free." Is the drink package a good deal if you're going to drink instead of paying per drink? For sure. And we all know we have to pay gratuities on that. Where it's not "free" is that they advertise it that way next to a price, which is a seemingly good deal. Then you go to book it...that price is the "sail away" rate, which doesn't include the perks, and the next cheapest rate including the perks is $250+ more expensive. I was thinking about doing a last-minute, quick 5-day since I live downtown next to PortMiami, I randomly had a few days off, and ins
  10. I’m sure this was already answered, but just there are a lot of pages to go through 😂 Just curious...after arrival in Manhattan on 11/11, where will she be/is there a repo cruise prior to arrival in Miami on 11/24?
  11. Thanks all for your input! I tend to agree about the short cruises...if you're going to go through all the boarding/embarkation/debarkation processes, might as well be on for a week. That's why I've only done week-long or longer. I think I'll stick with the resort and take my chances with hurricane season...I've (for the most part save for once) had good luck. We're looking into a Celebrity Edge cruise for January, so I'll just let that be his first! Have a great day, y'all!
  12. Hello all! I’m having a bit of a dilemma, so I wanted everyone’s input. I’m surprising my partner with a little weekend getaway to the Bahamas in August. Currently I have everything booked at Baha Mar with flights Friday am and back Sunday pm to Miami. However, I can still cancel and have been considering the Friday-Monday Nassau/CocoCay cruise on Navigator OTS. Thoughts please to help me make my decision! Here are some details: 1) I’ve been to Atlantis many times, but never Baha Mar nor CocoCay. He’s never been to the Bahamas. 2) I’ve only been on one RCI cruise (see my sig),
  13. Hey, everyone...I've read conflicting statements on this, so just wondering if anyone who has bought/used any of these recently could provide some insight. I just wanted to know if the social media package includes iMessage and FaceTime. My SO unfortunately can't make it this time, so this is really just to send some iMessages, FaceTime, and post some Snaps every now and then. I definitely do not care about checking email...I don't want to hear from work for a week! :') Anyway, I just want to know what is included. If I have to buy the other internet packages, I will...I just didn't wa
