  1. This is probably due to the ratio of fee to book vs possible revenue lost when a venue is closed to the public after 5pm is too high. You also have to consider that many venues at that point have entertainers possibly booked, cruise compasses that are printed ahead of the time, many factors. Congratulations on your wedding, and I hope you do work out your reception!
  2. Its 15.99 for the Anthem group cruise right now if you are interested!
  3. I'm not feeling hopeful about February, but will continue as if it were sailing. If Royal cancels, I wont be too surprised. If I cancel and it does sail, then I will have some major FOMO and will be mad at myself for cancelling.
  4. This is my fear. I looked at lifting my Feb '21 cruise, but some jerk (me) had already booked the same room, the same week in feb '22 and all the other ATS2BR's are gone for all the other weeks now too. We are traveling with 6 people, so that really limits our options.
  5. I sailed in a 2br GS on the aft of Navigator, you can follow my live blog below in my signature and see pictures etc. I agree that the space premium outweighs the obstruction of the view. I don't feel that the view is as "obstructed" as people feel, but that is a very subjective statement. As far as exhaust fumes, I occasionally was able to get an odor and noticed soot, but some of that depended on wind direction as well. One thing I noticed while on Navigator, was I felt vibrations as the ship backed into its berth at Coco Cay etc more than any extra rocking or ship movement.
  6. While I agree, I'm not positive that things will start back up in the 30 days, though I hope they do. He is heading home actually because his contract is up. He does mention that more in a later video. He did not indicate that he is planning on signing a new contract or anything. I wonder for the other crew if that is the case and that they are all on expiring contracts. He also goes on to say that RC is making and arranging all the flights, and are paid by RC.
  7. I follow Corey Rogers on Facebook. He is currently the cruise director on Liberty. He posted that they are anchored 12 miles off the coast and that he is putting together activities for the crew. They are still putting on performances of Saturday Night Fever, the ice shows etc for the crew. He did not mention whether or not the crew get to stay in the guest accommodations while this pause is going on, but it does sound like they are doing their best to entertain the crew and make the most of their break.
  8. With everything going on with this virus, I certainly hope that management at RC isn’t dumb enough to do something like this. Cruise lines are already under enough pressure as it is, the last thing they need is to come across as dishonest. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/finance-companies/norwegian-cruise-line-managers-urged-salespeople-to-spread-falsehoods-about-coronavirus/ar-BB115f3c
  9. This reminds me of the post I made way back when you were talking about booking the ATS something along the lines of agh...people...take me back to 17!
  10. There is no harm in asking. It will all depend on the number of kids etc. They need to maintain safe staff to kid ratios. I can tell you that on my last cruise, there were a surprising low number of kids, and many times, the adventure ocean sessions age brackets were combined into one large group. All this, of course, will vary by ship, sail date etc. Give it a shot, YMMV. I wouldn't worry about the kids being with new people etc, they make new friends easily. I couldn't believe by the end of the week how many kids my daughter knew and said hi to when passing on the ship.
  11. Keeping my fingers crossed for you guys that plan A goes off without a hitch!
  12. A normal baseline pulse-ox for someone without chronic respiratory disease is typically greater than 92%(some literature may say higher numbers) Anything lower than that starts becoming cause for concern.
  13. Here is a toast to your Dan, and to you @pamici
