  1. I spoke with NCL yesterday and was told invitation for upgrade will be sent 55 days before sailing. (this was for my sailing 12/26/21)
  2. My husband and I tip everyone aboard a little each day in addition to the prepaid gratuities. Then on our last night we decide which crew member made the greatest impression on us and tip that individual $100.
  3. Just so you know my hubby is permanently disabled so even though not in a wheel chair having more space to maneuver helps, and we would qualify for use of this room. We have re-booked to a regular Aft Cabin for the savings and extra latitude points leaving the M1 cabin available for someone else.
  4. Thank you to all who have replied! I was leaning to rebooking for points and you all have helped me in my decision.
  5. We are currently booked in Aft Club Balcony Suite on the Norwegian Breakaway. We booked it June 25th and then the additional 2 points per night became available but NCL can't help me receive this offer unless I re-book and there are only 2 of these cabins on the entire ship, so to take advantage of additional points I'd have to move down to a regular Aft Balcony cabin. I've been very happy with a Aft Balcony cabin on Breakaway on past cruise and if I rebook the next time I sail we would be platinum. If I keep existing reservation I will be 1 point shy of Platinum. Is the Club Suite worth loosing additional points, thoughts? (Photo is of our Aft Balcony on deck 9 from prior cruise)
  6. My trip on the Star was not until December 2021, seems so early to cancel it. (Sailing out of Rio). This is my 4th cancelled cruise.......Yes I know I can sail another day, but December of this year is a milestone Birthday for me.
  7. where did this information come from?
  8. I just spoke with my NCL cruise consultant and was informed that my cruise on Norwegian Star 12/11/21 Rio to Santiago (B2B). Has been frozen by cruise line and that is because "NCL is evaluating suspending this journey and if they do I will receive an email tomorrow"

  11. We are booked on B2B from Rio to Santiago departing December 11, 2021. Wondering if it’s going to go?
  12. I'm sorry this is such a bummer for all of us! This is my 60th Birthday trip and I have had it booked for over 2 years now. (the Singapore one), I booked the Rome to Miami as a backup plan in January because of Australia's strict no tourism allowed policies. Now it looks like neither will happen.
  13. Both my voyages on The Pearl out of Rome 12/7/2021 and the Spirit 12/6/2021 out of Singapore both look like no go's😪. Norwegian replied to my inquiry with the following:
  14. I just called Norwegian to inquire on when they might make some decisions re: my cruise Norwegian Spirit 12/6/2021 Singapore - Sydney to see when they will decide to cancel this cruise. The representative was just "RUDE" did not want to "speculate", I simply wanted to know if they would decide prior to final payment being due? I asked then "Has the Cruiseline when cancelling thus far, been cancelling prior to final payment?" Dude just did not want to answer. If any of my cruise critic peeps have information on cancellation timing please????
  15. I have been doing a little research on Singapore to Sydney Itinerary and below you will see what Australian Government is saying, my guess is Australian government will update travel restrictions before the June 17, 2021 date and we will know if Spirit trip is cancelled. I think NCL will make a decision in June on Sydney to Singapore trip as Australian government has shut it's borders until June 17th as of March 2021 update. I feel Australia will update their Covid Protocols for foreigners by end of May wether they will continue to exclude tourists or not. Below I have copy and pasted from this site: https://www.skyscanner.com.au/news/when-can-i-travel Department of Health Secretary Dr. Brendan Murphy states that Australia’s borders might be closed to most international destinations for most of 2021, depending on the status of Australia’s nationwide vaccination program. Dr. Murphy told ABC, “I think that we’ll go most of this year with still substantial border restrictions… Even if we have a lot of the population vaccinated, we don’t know whether that will prevent transmission of the virus.” Here is another site regarding June 17th date: https://www.health.gov.au/news/health-alerts/novel-coronavirus-2019-ncov-health-alert/coronavirus-covid-19-restrictions/coronavirus-covid-19-advice-for-international-travellers Since 27 March 2020, no foreign-flagged cruise ships may enter Australian waters (with limited exceptions). The cruise ship ban has been extended to 17 June 2021, but this does not mean the ban will be lifted at that time. The Australian Health Principal Protection Committee reviews the ban regularly.
  16. Me too! I wonder when Norwegian will pull the trigger on either a new itinerary for the Spirit or cancelling cruise? (In my humble opinion I do not believe Australia will permit cruise ships in 2021.)
  17. I just saw this posting and thought I would share from CruiseHive dated today stating July 4th date is looking promising for 60% occupancy on cruises from US with Passengers and Crew fully vaccinated as a requirement. https://www.cruisehive.com/norwegian-cruise-line-wants-to-resume-cruises-by-july-4th/49220
  18. FYI - This shows Norwegian has cancelled all cruises thru July 2021, no mention of August, (article updated March 16, 2021) https://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/cruises/2021/02/24/disney-cruise-line-carnival-extend-us-cancellations/6802488002/
  19. Chiliburn: Apparently there’s a new strain of the virus called the p1 stain that came from Brazil. Doctors in Europe where it is currently taking a hold say it’s immune to the vaccines. It’s predicted it’s 150 times more potent. Dont go packing those bags just yet. I found this information and thought I'd share 🙂 What to know about the P1 mutant COVID-19 strain in Shelby County | A Q&A with Dr. Manoj Jain In cities in Brazil where it originated, the P1 mutant strain has caused devastation with a huge number of COVID-19 cases as well as hospitalization. Dr. Manoj Jain Guest Columnist Posted 5:32 am on 4/1/21 Does the vaccine work at all against the P1 mutant stain? Yes. This is a really important point to know. Recent studies show that though the mutant P1 strain may have slightly lower antibody efficacy of the vaccine, there appears to be good T-cell immunity against the P1 mutant strain. Overall the vaccine will be very protective against severe Covid disease, hospitalization and death. As for the B117 mutant strain, also known as the “UK strain” all the vaccines are very efficacious.
