  1. Better than the other way around, that would have been a missteak
  2. I recently discovered that Viking Orion is doing 7 nights out of Bermuda. The stops are all Bermuda and the same as Oceania from NY with the Dockyard added. NCL stated they plan to start cruising on starting July 4 in their letter to the CDC, and then a day later canceling the July Bermuda cruises from NY. Is there a possibility they will follow Viking and have a Bermuda to Bermuda cruise this summer?
  3. Looking forward to another great play by play. This will be different as the game has changed and could change many times before sailing.
  4. We are booked on the 16th to Bermuda right after you.
  5. They are shooting for July 4 startup https://www.marketwatch.com/story/norwegian-cruise-stock-surges-after-plan-submitted-to-cdc-to-resume-us-cruises-in-july-2021-04-05
  6. We have had an aft on the Pride and loved the view. When we wanted to see what was in front of us, such as how close to port, we would look on the TV. The only real downside is the vibrations mostly when coming into and out of port.
  7. Here's what I saw today. https://www.seatrade-cruise.com/ship-operations/nclh-test-cruises-could-start-early-january-full-fleet-ramp-may-take-6-9-months
  8. Carnival Pride out of Baltimore September 9, 2018
  9. We did when our Bermuda cruise went to the Bahamas because of a hurricane that our captain said impacted Bermuda and left flooding and power outages there. Actually the hurricane never touched Bermuda and we received 25% off another cruise if booked and sailed within a year. We were very unhappy about this decision because of the higher cost to go to Bermuda vs. Bahamas. This was our last cruise with Carnival as we were misled and overcharged. We will be sailing at least 1 more time with them to use up our credit card points, and that will probably be the last.
  10. I understand the contract an all. But, if after the penalty phase kicks in, and they add masks must be worn at all times, can only get off the ship if on O excursion, and something like bars will only be open from 7 to 9 pm. I'm not sure those are all covered in the contract when I booked.
  11. Ours is coming up in a few weeks for our February cruise. If our cruise happens after making final payment but has restrictions we don't like...don't believe we should be penalized since the contract changed from when we booked.
  12. I would think the new Covid protocols would require the roof left open for proper ventilation. Leaving it closed would better define petri dish.
  13. I am waiting for the sail to start as well. When complete, I can mark it sailed.
  14. Hopefully if required tours are the norm, they will add some tours that are more than just island tours. Wherever we go, we always head to a beach, there aren't tours available for just spending time at a beach. Where are they with final payments these days? We have a cruise scheduled for February 2021, but we need to know what the requirements will be before final payment. Also, when does the penalty faze kick in? When we booked ahead, there were none of these potential requirements, most of which will be deal breakers.
  15. Thanks for your help with this, I think we are good.
