  1. I wasn't on that cruise, but I got pneumonia on the Breakaway in October of 2017. Not the way I wanted to extend my vacation, but I got to spend 4 days in a Bahamas hospital and about a month in a Miami one.
  2. Just to remind people that even though the solo traveler meetings take place in the studio lounge, you don't actually have to be in a studio to go to them. Anyone cruising solo can attend.
  3. In 2017, I was on the NCL Breakaway to Nassau. When I was on an excursion, I shared feeling ill and went to the infirmiry when I got back to the ship. Long story short, I had both pneumonia and sepsis from a leg infection. An ambulance came and took me to Doctors where I stayed for a few days to stabilize, then I was medevaced to Miami, where I was in the hospital for another few weeks. Obviously, it wasn't the way I wanted to end my vacation, but I don't have major complaints with the way it turned out. I think the doctor on the ship might have originally misdiagnosed me, but he made sure to get me off to a regular hospital where they could do more tests. My biggest problem was that, while I had travel insurance and regular health insurance, Doctors didn't accept my health insurance, so I had to pay up front. Fortunately, I keep an emergency credit card for vacations, and they took that as a partial payment. I was able to get reimbursement from my insurance company later (ironically, I had a bigger problem settling hospital bills in Miami...bunch of miscommunication between my insurance and hospital. While, all in all, it wasn't a fun time, I don't have any actual complaints about it.
  4. I don't know. I can see that eight cancellations in three years might raise red flags with NCL. I can understand them wanting to know what the cause was.
  5. I assume, the agent figured that, since you had canceled eight cruises in the past three years, there might have been some sort of problem that led to you repeatedly cancelling booked cruises. I can understand her asking about it, even if it sounds like she didn't do it the most diplomatically.
  6. I've been on the Breakaway before, but this next cruise is going to be my first on the Escape. How is the ship's library? I'm asking because the Breakaway's library was seriously underwhelming. Obviously, I'm going to be bringing my own reading material, but still, it's always nice to go into a new library and discover new books, and vacations are great times to catch up on reading, especially on sea days. So does anyone know?
