  1. We are booked on Vision for March 8. Sounds like the same itinerary. We did a B2B on Vision several years ago, 11 days Norwegian Fjords and 11 days Baltics. We really like the ship! We have sailed Allure, and there is obviously more to do on a larger ship like that. It sounds like you are choosing it for the itinerary, so maybe that should be given a little more weight. At any rate, the food and the service, as well as the shows, were very good on Vision.
  2. We try too buy local at home to. You meet some interesting people a the small businesses and kiosks on the islands.
  3. Just remember, they have a deal with the lines. We have a favorite jeweler in St. Thomas. We prefer the local shops, those not advertised in the cruise daily.
  4. When all of this started back in March, we had just gotten off a cruise. No one was sick. We figured our Nov cruise was safe. Well that lasted until Aug. Every time you turn around, it seems, they are extending the no sail rule. No our next cruise is on Vision next March, and I am no longer confident in that. Love your avatar!
  5. WORD IS IT WON'T BE RETIRED, BUT YOU ARE RIGHT, I IS SOMETHING TO WATCH,
  6. Quantum. Icy Straights has become a favorite destination. They have apparently done a lot of additions to it. We were there two years ago, in May. Saw lots of eagles.
  7. We have had one cruise cancelled for November. It was to Hawaii, and since we have never been, that was very disappointing. We rebooked it for 2022. Our next cruise is Visions in March We are not entertaining any notion of it being cancelled We have the Empress booked from Montreal in September. You never know what Canada is going to do. That would be a bummer if it got cancelled.
  8. No, that is all really good information, thanks! Maybe we will wait until they get back to two RTs a day.
  9. Certainly no need to apologise, I really appreciate the info. Thanks! Even if we just go there and come right back, I think it would be a lot of fun.
  10. Okay, our November cruise is officially cancelled. I was thinking of trying to talk DW into taking the SS Badger in October. It is only a 4 hour crossing so, why are there staterooms? If we don't want to take the car, are there things to see in Ludington, or is leaving the car a bad choice? Thanks!

  12. We have never had a package that had a 15 drink limit. Usually, you can only get 1 drink at a time, per seapass card, though. That could depend on the bartender. It includes coffee and soda too, I think. I just drink the coffee in the buffet, so not positive.
  13. It kind of depends on whether you prefer larger/smaller, older,newer, and where you want to cruise to. NCL was the pioneer of free style cruising. If you want the maximum freedom to do what you want, you should like it. No formal nights. Dress up if you want, Don't if you don't want. Some people like their cruises more structured.We did a B2B last February, the brand new Encore followed by the Pearl. We liked the Pearl much better. If you like Broadway shows, you might prefer RCI, but they require reservations for a lot of their events. Most NCL ships have a bar that serves food and is open 24/7 and the buffet hours are pretty flexible. When did you want to book? This is the first year since we have been cruising (1998) that our TA in Green Bay hasn't set up a Packer Fan cruise. Maybe after the pandemic is over, she will. I can let you know, if that happens. If they gave an award for the worst place to attend an NFL game, County Stadium would have won every year.
