  1. Our cousins in Australia says their borders are still closed within the country.
  2. Snow? let me answer that. Snow is the reason for the cruisen season. to be poetic.
  3. I guess a cruise with limited ports is what's called a casino cruise. But don't touch the cards. Stand every 30 minutes and get sprayed down. Last time we did a don't get off at port, we slept late, ate late, watched "TopGun" and "Casablanca", had popcorn . Still no room at the pool. We're book Feb 7th Carib. Princess Ft. Laudredale.
  4. I've had the same thought. The closer it gets, the less likely it seems like it will happen. If the ports are closed, then NO. If they impose the guided ship tours only rule that's even harder. Most of the Caribbean ports I've been to so many times that we just go to lunch or a bar for a drink and stroll around. My question is if no cruise, then what to do in February?????
  5. we had an October California and waited . Then Canada closed ports last week and Princess canceled. I called 6/5 and moved the double FCC over to another cruise in February that I had already booked. Wasn't sure if I could use the FCC on top of the one I used to book Feb. in the first place. Seems to have gone through OK.
  6. Funny, we got our offer back in February $300 plus wifi, tips, drinks. We always get some offer on a regular basis. This was for all destinations. Booked 2/7/21 cruise. Looks like they're really pushing the Casino deals, guess that's where the money is. we always book a mini, there was no room included but our Players Club discount on any room.
  7. Sounds like a $2000 pp room for two. We always get a casino drink card which varies with your level. They keep the perks close to the vest. We only get a room discount 10 , 15 % etc. Still a deal. Plus this cruise has a big. Obc
  8. Have to use your players card, then if you are rated at a casino like Caesars diamond, you can actually call NCL and get a room. Lots of local casinos have cruise giveaways
  9. On one trip we friended a couple at the casino who were $1 slot players. They got an invite for an all inclusive dinner in a private room and they invited us. Drinks and everything. POW . It all depends.
  10. It's all varies depends on what your play is. A free cruise can be anything from an inside cabin with option to upgrade on up. We get a free inside on Norwegian when ever we want to go except Hawaii.
  11. You get a drink card,, entrance to slot tournament s , reception party. Usually chocolate strawberries in your room. The big reward is a another players cruise . Some people are getting a similar offer but with $150 play. You also get a reduced room rate, 15 percent 20 percent etc. . We took the deal.
  12. We took the through the canal trip and it was a disaster. They said that the lake level was down and we had to follow a cargo ship through all the locks. Once you've been through a lock or two, they're all the same. We ended up getting back to the ship way after dark and about an hour after scheduled departure time. We were the last folks let into the dining room and the last to leave. Sitting on a bench for 8 hours is not fun. On our first trip we stayed on board and went through the locks in and out of the lake. had lunch, took a nap. etc. All in A/C comfort.
