  1. Fingers crossed for you - perhaps a bit selfishly - I'm also on an Alaskan cruise April 21 (Sun on 27th). When I booked it months ago, it seemed far enough out ... now, I'm not so sure. That said, whether completely confident or not, if it sails, I plan to be on it.
  2. Am booked end of April 2021...final payment isn't due til late December...will wait til then to decide next move.
  3. A bit confused by "My ship" -- just whatever cruise line you're on or do you own an excursion company?
  4. Mar 21, 2021 Miami-2 sea days- San Juan- Puerto Plata, sea day, Coco Cay-Miami Ocean View Empress of the Seas $627
  5. In 2017, today was departure day for a 10-night sailing from Seattle to Vancouver. Was a great sailing with decent weather and fabulous end of season sales. That's the thing: you just never know :-}
  6. Was hoping to port in Cuba on a cruise. Would really enjoy seeing the cars :-} Never thought about an AI there, but I guess that will be the way to go there in the foreseeable future. Used to do AIs pretty often, but it's been a while. Found the last few were spent entirely within the property's boundaries. Hopefully, by March, you'll visit safely and enjoy it!
  7. I hope I get the chance to agree with you ... will find out in April!
  8. Am on Sun (🤞) to Alaska in April. Will be my 2nd time on an NCL ship to Alaska. Prefer the smaller ships, and this was such a great deal, I know I'll enjoy it. This looks like there's a promenade area outside an indoor observation area...is that accurate? Not sure that makes sense.
  9. The year probably says a lot. Very nice routes -- in 2017 it was a 10-night sailing Seattle to Vancouver.
  10. I hope so too! My bookings represent incredible deals...too incredible to walk away from since I'm on the optimistic bandwagon :-}
  11. Back at you on respect. Everyone has to do what is right for them. I'm no rebel and am trying my best to be careful, using guidelines. I guess I might trust the industry more than you, about when it's safe.
  12. Thanks much for this! Very helpful and appreciate you taking the time to be thorough!
  13. Sailed Jewel solo to Alaska in 2017 and found it to be at least as good as Getaway (Breakaway's sister) in 2018 RE solo planning. Maybe it was more the host when you sailed? Didn't notice that much difference in entertainment though.
  14. Only time will tell and I'm willing to risk booking since there really is no risk in making a change if the date arrives and it doesn't feel like a good idea. A vaccine won't cure anything, just reduce symptoms, and masks or distancing aren't that much trouble for time on the water (IMO).
