  1. . LOL, a comparison like this is ridiculous. The items at a grocery store checkout are for sale like all other items in the store.
  2. Sounds more like you got a personal favor from the Maitre D since there are limits for Platinum.
  3. The one item I miss is the tips/gratuities threads. Tremendous entertainment value. You have one side that think the cruise lines should include it in the fare or it should be given the old fashion way in an envelope or removed completely and etc. VERSUS the other side who brag that they always over-tip, how poor the crew is, the long hours they work, how cheap the other side is, and etc. 😃
  4. Nonsense! Sounds like talking points from certain media. In every state some businesses are still fully shutdown or operating at an allowed 25% - 50% capacity. Furthermore, companies like American and United announced cuts of 30% of the management workforce and are just waiting for October 1 to layoff rank and file workers after the stimulus obligations expire. Good luck to the Harvest Cay workers.
  5. . Why would you be ashamed? Don't you know that everything must be done so upper management can take home their multi-million dollar paychecks?
  6. Harmony of the Seas arrived in Bridgetown, Barbados May 27. https://www.nationnews.com/nationnews/news/245786/update-harmony-seas-arrives-crew
  7. I not only got a mailer this past week but also an email from a PCC. As usual, I just put the mailer in my recycle bin. Never used a PCC before. Oh well, I guess NCL has money to burn.
  8. I had plans for this same cruise but because I book last minute I never got a chance to pull the trigger. I did have Southwest booked but canceled mid-March. I also had a room booked at the Hilton Garden Inn Times Sq. 8 Ave to stay in NYC for a couple of days but that too was cancelled at the same time. Oh well, today would have been a relaxing sea day. 😥
  9. Taurangua, New Zealand. I will never forget my hike of Mount Maunganui. From the summit beautiful views of the Bay of Plenty. A really nice beach too.
  10. . Just remember to write a review every time so the cautious like me can enjoy your experience from land.
  11. . 9/11 ain't no COVID-19 😉 Diehard cruisers will go with whatever restrictions. The general public may or may not return after a vacccine and no restrictions.
  12. . Personally, I don't care for Studio cabins. I normally book last minute and like to get a regular inside cabin that is roomier. Sometimes I have been able to get a balcony for not much more. No suit, not tux! Maybe one of the surviving lines will adopt the Sail-Away rate.
  13. The first one that copies NCL's Free Style cruising at a reasonable price for solos.
  14. .. Have you seen the videos online about some US airlines flying almost full planes and people not even wearing masks? Furthermore, I am chomping at the bit to get back to the gym for stair step and elliptical exercises. I spend thirty minutes on each and I clean down the machines. However, gyms are closed. Why is a 1 hour exercise more dangerous that being cooped up in a tube shoulder to shoulder with a stranger for 6 hours from NY to LA? I think airports and planes are sources of the virus (or a leg in the transmission of same). Flyers deplane and spread the virus in the community or on cruise ships. Politicians here in the US including the great orange one are always looking to blame someone else.
