  1. Hi @Arzeena, Doing fine locked down here in NYC. I live a few blocks from a hospital and the constant ambulance sirens are a sad reminder of what is happening. So glad we have memories of that winter cruise in January! Stay safe. -Pete
  2. Came across this article in my local paper this morning. "Lucy, a 31-year-old UK native, works in entertainment on the Serenade of the Seas, which is now anchored near the port of Barbados void of its usual 2,500 passengers, and housing about 780 of its 900-person crew. She takes The Post aboard a ship that’s floating aimlessly for the foreseeable future." The headline is a little sensationalized with the word "horror" but the rest of the article gives a good glimpse of what crew life is like right now. https://nypost.com/2020/04/10/cruise-ship-worker-reveal
  3. https://www.businessinsider.com/norwegian-cruise-line-cuts-pay-20-amid-coronavirus-cuts-2020-3?fbclid=IwAR1QCB2-408DaM-AgtCnrdt1Jv3rp_CudlUnk87-29nKysr9N0ezhf4YWzg Tough times for all... "Norwegian Cruise Line will cut salaried employee pay by 20% in response to the coronavirus outbreaks, according to a memo sent to staff on Wednesday."
  4. Link to a related article of the Bliss heading to Norfolk. https://www.wavy.com/news/norwegian-cruise-ship-to-dock-in-port-of-virginia-during-coronavirus-crisis/?fbclid=IwAR2KPY1b3Whgfi1FH3Y24mk9GqjxYgzuV39V0AzUBKGR2srvXgTqYDKQ_WY
  5. The Bliss has left NY Harbor and is heading towards Norfolk, VA to wait out the rest of the 30 days. https://www.wavy.com/news/norwegian-cruise-ship-to-dock-in-port-of-virginia-during-coronavirus-crisis/?fbclid=IwAR2KPY1b3Whgfi1FH3Y24mk9GqjxYgzuV39V0AzUBKGR2srvXgTqYDKQ_WY
  6. I see the ship moving now. You lucked out, today is definitely one of the nicest days in NYC for this year so far!
  7. Have a great cruise! I camped out at the base of the Verrazano Bridge hoping to get some photos of the ship leaving but gave up after seeing it still not moving at 4PM.
  8. Dammit, and I was looking forward to seeing the ship. I guess it does make sense to put a cap on any celebrations given what's going on in the world right now.
  9. Not sure how they publicized this (Instagram?) but everything sold out fast it seems.
  10. I've learned that the ship will arrive in NYC on Friday March 6 and leave on Tuesday March 10. The times for both are still unknown.
  11. Hi @AlyssaJames, I was on the Bliss in January and here are a ton of photos from that trip: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmKQn61V I've emailed Virgin directly to see if I can get any NYC departure time info from them. -Pete
  12. Does anyone know if the Scarlet Lady will be departing from NYC on Sunday (3/8) evening or Monday morning? I would love to get some photos of the new ship as it passes the NYC skyline but I'm unable to find any departure information from my normal go to ship schedule site. https://www.cruisemapper.com/ports/new-york-port-98 Thank you, -Pete
  13. Guest services told me they're at The Social when I was on board last month.
  14. For the sail away from NYC, you will still be able to get a good cell phone signal for over an hour AFTER you cross under the Verrazzano Bridge and into open water. This means you'll be able to use your plan for all of the time you're onboard in the pier and for a good amount of time after that.
  15. Oops, just realized I put the wrong date in the title! Should be 2/2/2020. Too bad I can't edit it anymore...
