  1. Perhaps checking TripAdvisor can help.
  2. On the subject of afternoon tea, last year on the Insignia we found the size of the carts (serving cakes, etc.) had been reduced. Also there were fewer choices on them and there were fewer carts. Further, the central table was not available to those wishing to get their own cakes, etc. In the new O things will change but we will not revisit the tea service.
  3. We do also but safety is our prime concern.
  4. Port Canaveral offers a number of hotels. But, Cocoa Beach we found more charming.
  5. I believe the operative word is "may". it could apply to passengers arriving from specified locations. Suggest sending your TA an e-mail.
  6. Below is a link that covers many aspects of Boston. The Freedom Trail is a good walk and Faneuil Hall I recommend. https://www.bostonusa.com/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIhrOHqKH66gIVjbbICh2XaAduEAAYASAAEgKV8vD_BwE
  7. Sorry but not one of my favorites.
  8. Suggest reading reviews in TripAdvisor ... some negatives are concerning.
  9. Thanks, Laura. The proposed limitations have pluses and minuses for the local inhabitants. Will be very interesting to see how this all turns out.
  10. Please be aware that driving in the US is on the right side of the road ... unlike the UK. Unless you are accustomed to this, I would recommend flights to Key West and return. Also, suggest visiting Key West only as it has some attractions (the Hemingway house is a must) and dinning options. Enjoy your cruise and key visit.
  11. Suggest looking at the reviews in TripAdvisor.
  12. Thoughts on handling of the virus brings out significantly different views in an election year. In New York instead of sending patients to the hospital ship and convention center virus patients were returned to nursing homes with deadly results ... this is a fact. There will be much said in the years to come.
  13. True to some extent but the chance for an on-time dock meeting will be significantly diminished.
  14. Check the reviews in TripAdvisor ... the National has more negative reviews than the Beacon.
  15. Some cruisers book private excursions on shore. With limited tender capacity, seems it may be difficult to be assured of the time for pick-up at the dock.
  16. I'd advise checking the reviews on TripAdvisor. Too many negative for me.
  17. Agree .. stay downtown. In looking over the TripAdvisor reviews (which CruiserBruce suggested) too many negatives for me.
  18. The new "rules" are more a goal. They may all work well on paper but in actuality ......?
  19. In checking TripAdvisor I see an unusually high number of negative ratings.
  20. Interesting question. But I suspect the current heath situation hasn't impacted the completion schedule much.
