    My Dreams have Been Crushed!

    I will catch heck for this post i am sure. I understand the OP, going on a cruise costs money, some people might have a lot of money to spend on cruises, some don't. Going on a cruise can easily cost with fees and taxes $1,500 to $2,000. Add in airfare for another $500 to $700 and if you have to board a dog another $200 to $400. That can be a lot of money, many people save all year, maybe a couple of years to take a cruise. It can be disappointing to be looking forward to a trip having it all change. Sure, the people affected by these storms have had their world destroyed and may never be the same. That is sad, no doubt. But the OP can still be upset that their vacation has been drastically altered.

    DJI Osmo +

    After a lot of thinking, considering 3 Axis gimbal for my GoPro or a Osmo I went with the Osmo. So far it seems okay, can't wait to take it out for a walk! I also bought a external mic for it, a Purple Panda lav for $20!

    Question about upgrade bids & check-in

    During online checkin I found out my passport would expire in the middle of my cruise.

    NCL needs to enforce the rule about not filling water bottles at the tap

    I wash my hands a lot, that is one of your best defenses. Avoiding people who are coughing, especially those deep tone, coming from the gut cough that sounds like a lung is going to be popping out soon. And most importantly, don't lick door knobs and handrails second handily by putting your fingers in your mouth.

    Someone's mouth on the bottle, bottle top touches dispenser, water passes through dispenser into your glass and then you drink the water. But there are so many places to pick up germs on a ship, one more place is no big deal.

    I agree, it is much more likely that they are just ignorant people, don't take the time to read the signs or they just don't follow the rules.

    What was your upgrade offer and what did you bid

    I happy with my inside, but a balcony would be nice. But I am cheap, so I figure if I get it for $75 great, if not, I will have a little more to spend on-board. But I understand your thought. Thanks.

    Why would someone bid more for a cabin than they could get it for with just a phone call? Hopefully the guest, if everyone bid low it would.

    I have gotten the feeling that many of the people that bid on balconies get them for right at the minimum bids. It seems like the suites get expensive when bid on.

    Not a problem, looks like they have plenty of unsold balcony cabin now.

    What was your upgrade offer and what did you bid

    I have a chance to bid on a balcony for our upcoming cruise, the opening bid is $75 and the max bid is $450. Funny thing is that I called NCL and asked how much would it cost to change to a balcony and I was told I could upgrade for $800 total. I am happy with my Inside cabin, but what the heck, worth it to bid $75 I guess.

    Interesting Question

    I agree, I sailed on the Divina and will never look back there again.

    Cruise Critic followup crew get together

    Thanks. I thought it was pretty special on the Pearl.

    Cruise Critic followup crew get together

    I know on the Pearl on the last sea day the ship has a Cruise Critic get together to see how the cruise went. Does anyone know if they do this on the Sun?
