  1. The cruise lines are a for profit business. They're just trying to stay in business. If the CDC won't allow them to operate and someone else will, of course they're going to do it. For those of you who live within driving distance to the ports, you will eventually be able to go back to that type of cruising, I'm sure. But, in the meantime, for those of us used to flying into a departure city to board a ship, we might be looking at this as simply a new departure port. Miami, Port Canaveral, Port Everglades, Nassau, Bermuda. I never get excited about where we're flying into to
  2. Yes. We plan to book Adventure out of Nassau. It won't be the same, but what is? At least, there will be big reason to smile. You can still see a smile in a person's eyes. We are vaccinated and ready to go. Will it cost more than we have previously paid? Probably. But, so does everything else. Have you seen the cost of lumber? Or gasoline? I'm sure the ships will sail at full capacity, whatever that capacity ends up being.
  3. We plan on booking the Adventure out of Nassau. It's so different for those of us not in Florida - to board a ship and stop at ports for a beach day sounds like heaven. Since we don't have access to daily sunshine or beaches, it's appealing to us. Airfare is airfare. Honestly, it costs as much to fly into Miami as it does to go to the West Coast. We've flown into Nassau before, for our overpriced Atlantis vacation. If I remember correctly, airfare into Nassau wasn't so much. We've been vaccinated and we trust the vaccine to work. I'm sure there will be restric
  4. My opinion comes from a non status cruiser. We cruised on NCL Escape and were pleasantly surprised with food choices and quality. Their dining rooms aren’t large like you find on RCCL mega ships. You are more likely to be seated with just your party. With NCL specialty dining usually included for 3 or 4 nights, you can really have a great dining experience. We didn’t cruise in The Haven, but have now cruised twice in a Grand Suite on RCCL where you have access to Coastal Kitchen. On NCL we certainly felt that we had enough alcohol to satisfy us. If you want a specific brand, you can ask
  5. Symphony May 2020 day pass is $69. Beach club cabana $1199. Overwater cabana $1499. Crazy pricing, but they’ll probably all be sold out. There’s obviously a decent demand for the cabanas.
  6. Haven’t seen this posted, apologies if everyone already knows. All day Coco Beach Club access is now showing up in our cruise planner for May 2020 Symphony Cruise. Price is $69.00 per adult.
  7. Oops, my bad. I guess a few of us made the same mistake. Moderator, please delete my post.
  8. We’ve stayed in Miami twice before other cruises, to be honest, it just felt like a city. Nothing special other than cruise ships. I’ve seen mixed reviews about airport hotels, so we’ll skip those. If we could afford the Fountainbleu (600) we’d stay there.
  9. We actually looked at that hotel. Price isn’t that important, we just want to be comfortable for one night. And maybe see the sights of Miami Beach.
  10. We won’t be there Memorial Day weekend. Early May. Thanks for the restaurant recommendation!
  11. We just booked Symphony for next May. Airfare is truly crazy expensive! Those of you living within driving distance to the ports, be thankful. We are arriving just one day pre cruise and would love to stay on Miami Beach instead of downtown. It’s just one night, would like to just take a walk, have dinner and sleep. Is it a hassle to/from Miami Beach as opposed to downtown? Any suggestions where to stay? Thanks as always for any suggestions.
  12. Following also. We are new to NCL, also going to Bermuda on Escape in two weeks. Can’t wait to read everything. Enjoy your cruise!
  13. I’m sorry for anyone with an itinerary change. Not everyone has been to Nassau dozens of times. For some of us who aren’t constant cruisers, Nassau is still a port to explore. Any port, after many times there, becomes a little boring. We spent a wonderful day on Coco Cay in May while on Harmony. It didn’t have an amusement park feel at all. It felt like a very relaxing pool/beach day. You really don’t need to spend a penny there. It’s your choice. If Royal starts noticing revenue dropping and ships starting to sail at less than full capacity,
