  1. I am so sorry to hear this. We were on the last cruise, the one that had to return to port early. My wife and I were fortunate and did not have the norovirus anytime during the cruise. I was wondering if Princess would be smart enough to continue to have sink/handwashing monitors in the buffet and also to have the staff dispensing the food so none of the utensils were touched by numerous passengers. Did they do that or was it back to normal with no handwashing/sink monitors and all of the buffet items being self service? They started doing that on our cruise after a certain number of passengers had noro but it was pretty much like closing the barn door after the horse was already out. We still had a great time on the cruise even though we did not get to any of the new ports we were looking forward to visiting. Much better than being in the freezing cold Midwest. I thought what they did for all of us was quite fair and I know that it must have cost them hundreds of thousands of dollars in addition to the bad publicity. Seems kind of penny wise and dollar foolish to not have, at a minimum, the handwashing/sink monitors.
  2. Does Princess still have the Welcome Aboard show/program the first night of the cruise? I have always enjoyed them in the past. It was always nice to see the CD and their staff and get a taste of the upcoming entertainment! Thank you in advance for your replies!
  3. We will be on the Caribbean Princess starting next week for a 2 week cruise. Do the Princess ships have English Breakfast Tea available in the buffet? This is my wife's favorite kind of tea. Thank you in advance for your replies!
  4. Just checking in to see if anyone can help me with the question that I had regarding booking air travel arrangements through NCL. Thank you!
  5. I was wondering if anyone can tell me of their experiences when they have booked the air arrangements through NCL. There are a couple of cruises that we are looking at now now and one has free air and the other is incredibly cheap. Just wondering if it is worth pursuing since it is at such a good price. We are in the Chicago area so I would think the chances for a direct flight would be fairly good but I don't know if that is the way they arrange things. We always try to book direct flights if possible but I could see us booking through NCL if folks have had good experiences doing that. Thank you in advance for any advice or experiences that you can share with me!
