  1. My computer said this was a harmful site. You left out the "s". It should be msccruisesusa.com in order to see the new cruises now available.
  2. Not sure what ships you are referring to, but, Royal has upgraded (redone) almost all bathrooms on Radiance class and Vision class ships over the past 10 years, or so.
  3. The captain just came on to say that we are cleared to dock tomorrow as planned. We're good to go. Thank whomsoever, since we are booked for the March 21 and April 4 Southern Caribbean cruises. Anyone infected with Covid-19 or Norwalk / Noro virus on these cruises, please stay away from the Crooner's and Wheelhouse Bars.
  4. A few weeks ago we paid $850 for an interior. This is for the Caribbean Princess, 14 night, southern caribbean on April 4, 2020. Now the "Princess Plus" is $1909 and the "Princess Savers" is $1349 for this same cruise. $2118 (the difference for two people) for the three gifts is not for us, especially since we get free wifi and free drinks anyway, as Elite level guests, although not unlimited.
  5. Norwegian Breakaway @ $277 pp, inside, March 07.
  6. We were on Empress in January and (as Pinnacle) got a coffee card, each, to use at the coffee bar in Bolero's, which is open very early each morning. DW sleeps in so I used her card to get my two cups before breakfast.
  7. In Jan/Feb of this year we did Regal Princess to Holland New Statendam to Regal Princess and both intraterminal trips by cab were $8.00. May have increased since then.
  8. In Port Everglades the cabs are required to take you intraterminal for $8.00. Signs are posted at cab stops and there is a sticker on the front window of the cabs showing the price. They will try to tell you it is $12 or 15, but don't believe them. We have done this several times and they (the drivers) always quote a higher price until we challenge them and ask why the window sticker says $8. Ask Princess Guest Services if a shuttle can be arranged. If enough pax are doing the same S2S then they may do it. Royal Caribbean has done this for us several times.
  9. On the Seaside now and just talked to the CD. He said he has submitted his plan for the festivities to take place next week when the Seaside is the first ship to visit the island. As of today everything is still a go for next week's arrival on November 15th. We will be there the next day as we are boarding the Meraviglia on Sunday for 14 days and three visits to Ocean Cay.

  11. Update: Captain just announced that Port of Halifax is closed and we are proceeding to our next port. He said it would be too dangerous for the harbor pilot to board our ship.
  12. ??? We are on Adventure of the Seas and were in Sydney yesterday, Friday. No problem with getting in or out of port. Heading into Halifax right now. Rough seas and high winds but so far this ship is handling it well. We will be on Meriviglia in four week for the first sailings out of Miami. Hope things are ironed out by then.
  13. During our month long stay on the Oasis in 2017 we saw four balconies removed when in port and then, of course, replaced with new ones. So I asked the Captain, who frequently had breakfast in the Coastal Kitchen, what was going on. He said the original ones were corroding (rust) rapidly and the replacements would "hold up" better. They had a two year program to replace all of the exterior balconies.
  14. Price today is $49 pppn which isn't too shabby. We are doing the Adventure repositioning this Autumn and will consider the Empress snowbird migration in 2020. We are also doing Empress on June 01 and B2B June 12. I'll bet half the ship's pax will be doing the turn-a-round going back to Bayonne. Have done New England three times (counting this upcoming one), all during leaf peeping season. It will be a different experience, to some degree, to be there in the summer and are glad for the opportunity. As long as they are serving lobsters/lobster rolls in the town and city restaurants that we visit, any season is fine with us.
  15. And Disney Fantasy and Harmony is backing in to its berth at this moment. Normal port of call for these ships today although Empress might have brought some Bahamians to Nassau from Freeport as part of the relief effort.
