  1. Los Lobos was one of our favorite meals on the ship. I’m sure a plain chicken quesadilla is possible. we are bbq snobs (have 3 smokers in my garage) and Q didn’t hit the bar for us.
  2. Maybe because at this point they’re just digital renderings and not actual photos?
  3. I’ve been wondering about this from an economic perspective. Ships used to be in most ports 3-5 days a week. But now they may get a max of 2 days a week. Is that even possible for them? Will cruise lines subsidize? (They don’t have the $ to do that) do those place have the $ to restart? Do they have the staff? (I know service industry is taking a while to rebound with many restaurants having fewer hours because they are short staffed). It’s going to get there, eventually. But it may take some more time.
  4. On ships with Food Republic, it’s open on sea days foe lunch. We really enjoyed it! (I don’t believe Epic has it)
  5. Look into Heath System/Hospital/Doc Office. Mine offers it for $60 and guaranteed turn around time of 24 hours and delivery in digits format to patient portal.
  6. I just don’t think you are. If you were, you would have helped stop the spread of this deadly thing. Instead you brag that you disregard medical recommendations and have people traipsing through your house unmasked for long periods of time. Perhaps your behavior killed someone. You wouldn’t care.
  7. My in laws had painters in their house and got covid. My mother in law was hospitalized for 5 night. My father in law was close to needing o2. My mother in law was on 4L o2 when discharged and had tanks delivered to her house and used them the following 3 weeks solid then 3 weeks off and on after she went for shot walks. Additionally, she still has blood pressure issues. So, you got lucky. That doesn’t mean it was the smart thing to do.
  8. No I’m not happy because you are inaccurately representing data you don’t understand. You are comparing the 7D case total vs the 7D daily moving average. You are comparing the total number per week (167.6) instead of the number per day (23.9). Germany: ~20k 7d average/83.02M x 100k = ~25 cases/100,000/day Cyprus: >100 cases/100,000/day. If you would prefer to compare in your metric: Cyprus has >700 cases/100,000/7days. Germany is 167/100,000/7days. Therefore: Cyprus has a rate of 4 times as many daily cases per 100,000 persons as Germany does.
  9. That’s fine- but “areas in Germany” are not a country.
  10. Cyprus currently has a 7-D moving average of 100 cases per 100,000 per day. This appears to be the highest rate globally, but is less than half of what curaçao was at its peak (210). source: https://ig.ft.com/coronavirus-chart/?areas=cyp&areasRegional=usnj&areasRegional=usnd&areasRegional=ussd&cumulative=0&logScale=0&per100K=1&startDate=2020-02-01&values=cases This doesn’t necessarily say anything about the conditions- but has been a leading indicator to hospitalizations/deaths per-vaccine. Their rollout is behind the US and UK. Which may be why they’re imposing a partial lockdown. All that said- still lots of time for things to turn around.
  11. I would say 17. The balconies are larger. You’re right off the bar/lounge. The Horizon lounge is right there with an espresso machine for early morning pick me ups. You’ll have to go up to the restaurant, but not a biggie. No sound issues from pool area.
  12. I’m impressed this thread is still going. Good news if your kids are older Marco- Pfizer just filed for extension of EUA age down to 12. So if your kids are 12+ then your problem is solved. In some states- they anticipate being able to get the vaccine by June if approved. im very fascinated to listen to the VRBPAC because there were a few pediatricians who were uncomfortable with 16-17 year olds being approved under EUA. Will be interesting to tune in! Big question was: is the risk/benefit ratio in favor of the patient? Stay tuned!
  13. Damn. I was hoping the polite wave would be enough... seems the drama keeps them coming back for more. So here I am stirring that pot. im still trying to figure out where I can go and who I can leave my kids with! Grandparents are all vaccinated, so just need to figure it out.
  14. And in the scenario of a child in kids club testing positive, because it can happen- the protocols would likely require that their entire cabin would likely have to quarantine. Then parents come here and complain that they had to quarantine and will never go on NCL again... lose-lose situation. But in this situation- they are likely to be able to get some revenue, refine protocols, and see what happens in other markets.
  15. This isn’t addressing the concern at hand, the concern is: can a cruise ship sail without becoming a super spreader event in which the entire ship has to quarantine. Unvaccinated persons may be less likely to develop serious disease but they are still capable of being superspreaders and the cruise lines don’t want another diamond princess fiasco it would be much more damaging.
  16. Wow- I know these posts go in rabbit holes about masks on board, mandatory vaccines, etc. but you’re going after the stimulus now. Interesting. I can’t fit my comments on that part of your post in this forum. But agreed, the debt added sucks, maybe there are some corporations who under pay employees that made a ton of money that could be taxed a bit better... As someone who didn’t get a check- I’m very thankful they were sent because I know people who needed them.
  17. Oh, I didn’t miss it. So it’s about “me” when I try to work in an environment that doesn’t make me sick, but it’s not about “me” when he says that he can smoke wherever he wants? Ok just wanted to make sure I understood we were going with the double standard. Edit to add; oh and people can’t have business that allow drive through bars. There are laws to protect people. Owning a business doesn’t give anyone carte Blanche to do what they want inside the walls.
  18. If I had to guess, they may do provisioning in the Bahamas. May figure out logistics to private island or may even stop for a non passenger stop at Nassau to provision only. With vax crew and vax port staff, they can provision pretty safely.
  19. For those thinking about the excess mortality stuff: here’s a good datavis of it- with their sources listed. https://www.ft.com/content/a2901ce8-5eb7-4633-b89c-cbdf5b386938
  20. And I am still so thankful that they happened. As a waitress during high school and college, I remember the difference in cleaning routines from smoking section to non- the color of the cloths from the smoking section and how gross the cleaning bucket was. I remember having to pay other waitresses to work the smoking sections (they were smokers and didn’t mind). So glad that service/bartender health mattered.
  21. I think that for a vaccine labeled for young children to get EUA, they have to show the risk to children of getting Covid and having negative outcomes is greater than the risk of the side effects and outcomes from vaccine. It is going to be interesting to watch this play out in FDA evaluation. Pediatricians were very concerned in the analysis of Pfizer down to 16. I look forward to hearing the debate for younger children. I have 3 under 8 and will be very cautious in this decision. I’m vaccinated and took my shots the second it was available to me. I’m a scientist. But I’ve got to really weigh the risks and benefits here. And if that means my kids don’t cruise... well then I hope grandparents are available so my husband and I can get a minute away 🙂
  22. The NY releases say 90+% of first doses, right? So they are holding onto some doses to make sure they have 2nd doses available when people are due, which is smart- considering the cluster that was PA in January with not enough shots for second doses.
  23. My goal isn’t to change your mind- my goal is to provide more balanced data. You’re welcome to disagree all you want.
