  1. I know it always makes people feel safer when people keep using the hand sanitizer. The truth is it doesn’t kill the coronavirus, Noro virus or any other viruses. Hand sanitizers are antibacterials. I heard that cruises no longer stress the using of them because it gives people a false sense of protection. Yes, there are sanitizers that kill viruses, but they contain bleach. If used wrong and some gets on clothing, it will stain. Also continued use of this sanitizer, your hands will become very dry, even cracking. Let’s just wash hands good.
  2. We were on the kayak excursion a couple of years ago when my husband and I were 69. It was a lot of fun and quite appropriate for your kids. All I have to say is make sure your kayaks are in complete working order. My husband sat behind me and his seat back was broken. Therefore he was practically laying down when we kayaked. Very uncomfortable. It was a mile kayak trip to the hike. Hike was easy. After the hike they snorkeled. I was pooped and chose to just sit on the beach because I knew we had another 1-mile kayaking trip back. Just make sure the kayak is in good working order.
  3. I loved the chocolate martinis on Seaside. I’d cruise the Seaside again just for those chocolate martinis.
  4. Does the Mereviglia have a place similar to Venchi on Seaside?
  5. This July on the Seaside, in the Yacht Club, the people still stayed in the pool drinking. They just hung onto the sides. They blocked the stairs. You couldn’t even get into the pool unless you kept saying “excuse me” and wiggled your way in. The middle of the pool was empty. A float of some sort would’ve been a great idea.
  6. Thank you everyone. I guess I’ll wait until I’m on board. Maybe by then I’ll be able to see the departure time.
  7. If you book an MSC excursion on line, do you have to pay for it right away, or can it go on your account so you can use your OBC?
  8. No, if you’re a woman, shaking it dry means doing the shimmy. No touching involved.
  9. Thank you everyone for your input. So it’s known that the ships sailing the Caribbean in August will be Seaside and Armonia? If that’s the case, we’ll definitely keep the March cruise on Mereviglia because Armonia doesn’t have the YC, And we were just on the Seaside this past July.
  10. The week we have booked is the 21st to 28th. I’m really considering staying with this cruise unless what they come out with in August is something real special.
  11. We have a Caribbean cruise booked for the end of March 2021 on the Mereglivia. I really wanted an August cruise but the 2021 dates aren’t posted yet so to I scheduled the one in March just to be sure I had something. Then I was thinking, maybe the March date would be better. Can anyone give me an idea of what the weather and the seas are like in late March early June?
  12. So sorry. It was late when I posted. I did get the two mixed up.
  13. You’re going to love the jet ski excursion with Fat Fish. We did I it 2 years ago. We drove the jet skis out 4 miles to the sting rays, then got on the jet skis and drove to a snorkeling sight. Then we went to starfish point. Got on the jet skis and rode the 4 miles back. We were 69 at that time and I have to admit, it was the best excursion we ever went on. Make sure you wear swim goggles because when you’re driving fast to keep up with the guide, you’re getting a lot of salt water thrown in your face. Enjoy.
  14. When we were on the Escape Haven we had the least expensive cabin—the spa cabin. It was awesome as far as room size. It also had a whirlpool in the room. The problem with that room was that it wasn’t in the Haven complex. It was next to the spa. LaMuse, their restaurant was also not in the Haven. You had to learn how to navigate your way there. The first night your Butler takes you there to show you the easiest way. Having sailed on the Divina and Seaside I would never again sail NCL’s Haven. Mostly because if their cost and their swimming pool. It was so small and even when the roof is retracted it seems very stuffy and dull. To me, the YC and the Haven aren’t comparable. Just booked another YC on the Meraviglia in the Caribbean in 2021.
