  1. There are none to speak of. River cruises are very up front about not being Fully accessible. i can think of several ports that require many steps to get up to the main drag. I am very familiar with Maysville for instance as my paternal side of the family is from 11 miles away.
  2. most obvious answer would be to actually ENFORCE your listed check in time to limit the number of people in line at security
  3. different how? as in standard operations? no one knows at this point what new policies and procedures will be in place. to include possible limitations on the number of pax allowed In the casino at any one time( for instance they could lock off every other one armed bandit and only use every other seat at the gaming tables) different as to activities? they typically start the Holiday decorating the day after T day.
  4. At least one original party must remain on the booking I order to switch names around.
  5. One 12 pack per stateroom at embarkation only. Single cans *might* be allowed at port stops
  6. Officially, no. One or two in port won’t be an issue. A case or 6 pack, depends on security
  7. Many muster stations are indoors now. I have mustered in the MDR, the Casino, the theater and a lounge.
  8. my admittedly NON scientific answer: Buffets will not be operational in the traditional sense. at best, they will be cafeteria style with a crew member filling your plate with whatever you point at. they could operate as a fast casual restaurant where you order at one spot, take a seat and have your food brought out to you MDR: the default has typically been you are seated with your own party alone on My Time Dining. they can easily extend that to traditional dining as well as remove tables that seat more than 6. Shows: doesn't take much to block off every 3rd seat( so couples can sit together) and to stagger the placement of seats to ensure there is adequate distance between rows. elevators are trickier, I think. can they station crew at each bank of elevators to limit how many get on? will those same crew have the ability to call an elevator on demand for those in WC/ECV/Strollers. I can't see that happening logically especially after muster, around show times and MDR times. ,maybe they will have them thoroughly cleaned and sanitized 8 times a day instead of 4. maybe they will strongly encourage the use of masks while using. there is increasing evidence that surfaces are not as conducive to the spread of C19 as your fellow passenger. will they make say the pool deck one way Port side and the other way Starboard side? will they limit Bingo games to no more than 25 people at a go? In my NSHO, the cruise industry can adapt, short term and long term, but it's not going to be easy and would probably turn off a fair percentage of cruisers, possibly permanently.
  9. I was just at my doctors office. Got temp checked coming into the building. 96.8. The gun thingy 10 minutes later, 99.6 with a traditional thermometer Under the tongue.
  10. Newsflash: they don’t market every ship the same way. Some are going to be less exciting for the diaper set than others.
  11. my cruise starts 26 July. so I understand where the OP is coming from.
  12. Because they aren’t a repeat customer. Families with young kids might cruise once or twice, and only at certain times of the year. What’s the point of having a part time business? And I’m sorry but us old folk aren’t ready to be shunted aside and told we’re expendable just yet.
  13. Empress is the smallest ship in the Fleet. So it is extremely possible that numbers are correct. That being said, the configuration may such that it is possible to get a scooter inside without too much hassle.
  14. the only way I'd sail NCL is via the Haven.
