Hello all, we were on this cruise as well so I thought I would post my experience since everyone has a different view on things. Family of 5, fully vaxed, active in our 50’s and kids in early 20’s. The Boardwalk was weird to see. Like an old, abandoned amusement park. Sad not to see kids on the carousel. Central Park being empty was something I liked. I generally go there for some downtime to escape the crowds, so that being empty was fine by me. I realize the crew needs the masks but it takes away their personality a bit and makes the language barrier tougher in some instances. I am a promenade people watcher and found that sitting anywhere with a bottle of water and no mask left me unbothered. In an empty elevator or empty hallway, many had no mask. When others got closer, masks came on. When I looked in Boleros and Dazzles they seemed fairly unoccupied. The casino was jumping every night (no mask needed). The pool area is where I typically enjoy meeting new people and this was no different. Nice not to have to fight for a chair, although the hogs are still doing their all-day entitlement thing. We are beach people so the masks were not an issue when we exited the ship. In summary, I was very worried the masks would make me nuts for a week but luckily it didn’t. Keep in mind that on a cruise we are generally into the Schooner Bar, casino, central park, the pub, and going to the beach. Now, if you mask me up in the casino, sitting poolside, or the Schooler Bar, that is a game changer for sure.
