  1. Chris posted a new video today. He spent several hours at Miami International and finally boarded his flight to London/Heathrow. Later he posted from Heathrow awaiting flight to Manchester. He spoke of no illness on the Oasis. Hopefully he will arrive home healthy.
  2. Totally enjoyed your live review! Got me through the 2 weeks before our Edge cruise! This week I've spent my days off packing. I'm not near as efficient as you! Looking so forward to boarding this beautiful ship on Sunday!
  3. After hearing on the news last night that the CDC is saying that people in the US need to prepare not for "if" the virus hits here but for "when" I don't think cancelling travel plans will make much difference. We all need to wash our hands, use hand sanitizer and stay home when we don't feel well. I will embark on the Edge on Sunday.
  4. The last 2+ decades have seen several crisis' in the world. 911, the Costa Concordia, terrorism, SARS, random mass shootings you can go on & on. With each crisis I have taken pause and given serious thought to each situation, I've made note of sensible precautions and moved forward in my life. I will not let fear rule my life. And am I ever glad! The beautiful places I've seen that I might have missed! So next Sunday I will board the Edge with the same excitement I felt 18 years ago when I boarded my 1st cruise. And I'll do it again in October in Rome!
  5. Thank you. I know about the security scanners, I misunderstood & thought there was another scanner somewhere that folks were just able to hop on the ship to.
  6. Im sorry, but what does this mean? Who gets to just go through the scanners?
  7. We will be boarding the Edge on March 1st! Looking forward to your posts and trip tales!
  8. We took the Crown on our British Isles cruise in Aug/Sept 2019. I was also concerned about the Crown's wear & tear but went with it as the price was much better and the itinerary was exactly what we wanted. Well the Crown was in great shape and we had the best staff we've had in several cruises. The only downside would have been the lack of variety in the main dining room. But it is close if not our favorite cruise to date! I think either ship would be fine, I'd go with what itinerary appealed the most.
  9. Can I person in the cabin get the Select package and the other the Elite?
  10. Yes I also really appreciate all the responses! I am very excited to have an aft cabin for our cruise!
  11. This can only be done before finals payment correct?
  12. Thanks so much for the input! The balconies are on deck 4. I realize we won't utilize them like in the Caribbean but we enjoy sitting out there as we sailaway from each port.
  13. This is the first time in all my years on CC that I haven't gotten one response to a question I asked! Guess no one here has ever had an aft facing cabin on the Nieuw Amsterdam....
