  1. I appreciate you taking the time to share your opinion. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  2. Nobody knows what is going to happen with Coronavirus. The points you have raised make me think that I am correct in my view that a TA calling in Portugal (Azores and Madeira) and Spain (Canaries) is unlikely when these destinations have had relatively few Covid cases. Why would NCL operate two TA’s to move ships around when they can just keep the Epic in the Caribbean and the Breakaway in the Mediterranean? Sent from my iPad using Forums
  3. I’d like to think I’m actually looking at the balance of probability based on 35 years in the travel industry where, amongst other tasks, I was responsible for crew and asset scheduling. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  4. By my reckoning the Star, Dawn, Jade, Getaway, Breakaway, Bliss and Encore are all spending their summer 2020 tied up here in Europe. I have a reservation on a TA from SJU to BCN on the Epic in April 2021. With a large percentage of the fleet on this side of the Atlantic I’m thinking that it’s unlikely that it will go ahead. The Breakaway is planned to operate Caribbean cruises next year from MIA so I’m thinking the Epic will take up that roster and the Breakaway will operate her schedule from BCN.

  5. You make a good point. Our next cruise, if it goes ahead, will be a TA on the Epic. We’ll be travelling from Europe so bringing 14 shirts each to avoid the laundry isn’t really an option. To be honest, it’s the least of my concerns at the moment, but I saw a thread on laundry so I thought I’d ask the question. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  6. Looking to the future, when sailings resume I have a mundane laundry question. Has anyone else suffered damage to buttons when using the laundry service? We’ve sailed on the Epic; Breakaway; Getaway and Escape in the last 10 years. In almost all cases when our laundry came back there would be buttons cracked, halved or missing altogether. We don’t have any problems at home and, for what it is worth, our shirts are high end (Boss/Lacoste/Gant). Just wondering how other cruisers handled things when there was damage and what NCL did to resolve the issue. Thanks Sent from my iPad us
