  1. No it does not qualify. They did have testing at the cruise port though.
  2. In case anyone is wondering, we showed passports, Vax cards and RT-PCR paperwork numerous times at the port. They circled RT-PCR so they are definitely looking for that particular test.
  3. This is the part that stumps me. Are they really looking for a rolling 72 hours of PCR tests according to your check-in time? SXM says 72 hours from departure of last leg. There can be a four hour gap here.
  4. Airline crew wasn't essential in my state nor in the state where he is based. They were classified after grocery workers, food workers, and garbage men. That was a pretty big miss as he does go to ICN, PVG, NRT and SYD. We are cruising in less than a week. We had to buy tickets. There is just no way we would have made it.
  5. My 14 year old has been on 11 (8 on Disney) cruises since December, 2017 when I brought three youngest kids on a cruise to see if they liked it. Silly me. That first cruise was right after Thanksgiving on RCCL. I think that there were 14 kids on board. Nonetheless they all loved cruising. Cruising has brought her out of her shell. She used to be so shy (if she could fold herself up in half and disappear she would have.) We are cruising in a week and we discussed bringing her along. So I totally get what you are asking. We opted to not bring her along on Celebrity. This is a Caribbe
  6. The FAA also had the no-fly restriction 48 hours after the vaccine. And that absolutely messed up scheduling.
  7. Although it is the pilot's job to work through the checklist so often times, that is how it is caught.
  8. We have this itinerary the following week. We normally just fly standby in early but nothing is normal now so this was the best workaround that we could do. I know that the airports will be crazy. Just buying tickets has increased our odds but there are so many things that can go wrong, I can't worry about this that far down the list.
  9. We had to do a sailaway gty as it was the only thing available to book. We were assigned different decks. It is our first time sailing NCL (and now that I see how they run things, probably our last.) RCCL also has a hard time assigning a cabin for 2 and a cabin for 3. That being said, both of our cabin assignments could fit the larger party, so that didn't even come into play. And right now there is a cabin directly beneath ours but on the same deck as our first cabin. So we could have been assigned on the same deck. The reservations were linked. They simply chose to separate us.
  10. You have to split the parents. I've done 5 in a cabin on RCCL and two cabins every other cruise we have done. I will never put 5 in a cabin again. Disney has no problem keeping the two cabins together on GTY. RCCL has a big problem simply because they cannot put cabins of two and cabins of three near each other (unless you are booking way, way out when it starts.) I have no idea how NCL is going to handle it. My hunch is not so good. I can't even get a cabin assignment on GTY and our sail date is in few weeks. I have an offer to bid on both cabins but I can't even get to that poi
  11. I'm just not getting assigned. We have 2 cabins (not that I think that they will be near each other.) To me it seems a bit pointless since I don't even know what we will have as IX. Should I bid or wait?
  12. We booked a GTY on a sailing in about a month. I received the Upgrade bid offer. I'm still sitting guarantee but everything lower than mini-suite is showing as GTY. This is our first NCL so GTY and upgrade bidding is new to us. Thanks!
