  1. Our last cruise was on Navigator - February 24th 2020. Who would have predicted what would happen next!
  2. Here are reasons per Cleveland Clinic: https://health.clevelandclinic.org/already-vaccinated-heres-why-you-shouldnt-stop-wearing-your-face-mask-yet/
  3. I missed that remark in my response. Thank you!
  4. Thank you for posting your reference. Though, I disagree with your conclusion, 8 vs. 162 is rather significant in a clinical trial. The vaccine is not only to help prevent the spread of covid, but also to lessen the severity of the virus which the study also shows its proven: The study found 10 severe covid-19 cases after the first dose, nine of which were in the placebo group. After the second dose it showed one case in the vaccine group and four in the placebo group.

  5. Like giving up freedom of kissing your windshield through legally mandating the use of a seatbelt?
  6. Good point, and getting vaccinated is by far the most effective way to train our bodies to increase our immune response when presented with the virus.
  7. I think part of what the anti-mask crowd struggles with is the concept of viral load and how covid is transmitted. If the primary mode of transportation is droplets, why is it so hard to comprehend that anything covering your mouth/nose is going to reduce droplets, be it coming into your body or more importantly leaving from someone infected. The more virus you are exposed to the more likely it is to overwhelm the immune system resulting in disease transmission, and in the event that it transmits, the extent to which hospitalization is likely to occur. If covid was transmitted like measles ma
  8. Why is that? Is there any significant difference between it and Navigator or Mariner?
  9. I believe Freedom was out of San Juan a while back and then went in for reamplification last summer. Not sure what the future plans are. Will be interesting.
  10. We just received notification that our January 2022 cruise on Navigator is being replaced with Freedom of the Seas. Excited to try a new ship!
  11. Just received the notification for our Jan '22 cruise that it will be switching from Navigator to Freedom of the Seas out of Miami. Was happy to find that Freedom received the amplification last year so shouldn't be too much difference.
  12. Thanks for the tip on Love Beach! After reading reviews on Trip Advisor this sounds prefect for my family and loads cheaper than the Blue Lagoon excursion.
  13. Great Stirrup Cay had decent snorkeling if you don't have high expectations. They had an artificial reef like structure installed to protect the beach. I haven't been there in over a decade, but I think it will fit your bill. Pro tip, snag a couple boxes of Cheerios from the buffet and open them up under water - the fish will swarm 🙂 We will be in Nassau the end of next month with our 7 and 5 year old and am interested in hearing about snorkeling opportunities. We were at Atlantis in February. I don't think I would pay to bring my kids there. The water park isn't worth
  14. The apple pie is amazing if it's anything like what they serve on Symphony (flower shaped). Easily the most memorable food I had on our last cruise. My wife doesn't care for apple pie in general, but really liked this one. By the end I was ordering 2! OP- thanks for the review. We are sailing on 2/24 with our kids for the first time that are 5 & 8. Is there a minimum age/size for laser tag?
