  1. Can you imagine if somewhere down the line they actually came up with proof that they were booking cruises with no intention of them actually sailing? I'm not saying there is, just that it could get very interesting. Not in a good way for NCL.
  2. We cancelled two cruises, right before the final payment date. We got our deposits (just $100/per cruise total) credit back to our card in about two weeks time.
  3. "The line is also tracking down 177 passengers who left the ship early Friday to alert them to the outbreak." The passengers from the previous cruise could have been spreading the virus unknowingly as well.
  4. We cancelled our October cruise before final payment. We've already received our $100 deposit back. I was really looking forward to this cruise. 😭
  5. There was a singer on the Encore named WT Greer who was amazing. He would do shows in the Observation Lounge and all the talent from the shows who were off at night would show up and sometimes even sing with him. It was really fun.
  6. 2 Hours is exactly how far in advance I feel comfortable booking a cruise right now.
  7. I booked my cruise in November and it's designated a Club Balcony Suite and the current price is just over $500 more per person. It was that high last week when I took a look.
  8. I don't think I'm going to be able to get a haircut by May, much less go on a cruise.
  9. Another potential problem with Alaska is they get a ton of seasonal workers in these cruise port towns. Is anyone going to be going up there for potentially less than half a season? How do they make plans when everything is up in the air? It doesn't seem practical.
  10. I'm so glad everyone was able to get planes out of there on the same day. It seems very fortunate. I can't even tell you how many times I've been stuck in a really awful airport and had to just sit with my bags for hours and hours before they let you check them and head into the airport. It's miserable and I wouldn't wish it on anyone, but that's just how some airports and airlines work. I hope this all gets resolved sometime in the not too distant future.
  11. I guess they are just going to do this incrementally. They don't want people to lose faith and figure out that "summer vacation" is a phrase that just isn't going to apply to the year 2020.
  12. I'm going to look at how things shake out price wise after this is over. I'm not sure when or if I'll ever feel comfortable planning a cruise very far in advance with Norwegian. For peace of mind I'll probably just do last minute cruises and take my chances with what cabin we're able to book.
  13. They should do the opposite of what they're doing. They should reduce the amount of time you have to pay off your cruise to 2 months instead of having raised it to four months. I'm definitely not paying for a cruise right now that's 4 months off, but that's just me.
  14. I got back from an Alaskan cruise in August and right after became so incredibly sick I couldn't get out of bed for several days. I had a very high fever, over 103, terrible cough and was super weak. I was able to get to the doctors and then tested negative for the flu. My doctor was really puzzled it wasn't the flu and she just said it was some other wicked virus. What was weird to me was that I was talking to my dentist when I was feeling better and she told me she had another patient who was equally sick who also got sick around the same time - right after she got back from her Alaska cruise out of Seattle. I don't particularly remember anyone coughing while I was on the cruise.
